"It is necessary to end Europe's gas blackmailing forever": Zelensky called on American senators to impose sanctions against Nord Stream 2


Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy has addressed the US Senate, the upper house of the US Congress. He called for support for amendments to the US defense budget for fiscal 2022 (started on October 1, 2021), which provide for the imposition of sanctions against Nord Stream 2 AG, the operator of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline. The President of Ukraine wrote about this on his Twitter account on November 12.


Zelensky believes that it is necessary to end forever the "gas blackmail" of Europe and stop the "SP-2". At the same time, he thanked the lower house of the US parliament for the fact that the House of Representatives supported similar amendments earlier. Now he hopes that all senators from among the friends of Kiev and the EU will support this initiative.

Europe's gas blackmail must end forever

- Zelensky is convinced.


We remind you that in September the House of Representatives approved the above-mentioned budget, which already provides for a package of measures against SP-2. On November 8, six Senators from the US Republican Party (James Risch, Robert Portman, John Barrasso, Ronald Johnson, Thomas Cotton and Ted Cruz) proposed amendments to this document to further complicate the commissioning of the pipeline. Senators are convinced that the imposition of restrictions is "critically important" to support Europe's independence and energy security from Russia.

Note that Ukraine, Poland and the Baltic countries (Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania) are actively opposing the implementation of an important gas transmission project. At the same time, by January 8, 2022, the German gas regulator - the Federal Agency for Networks (Bundesnetzagentur) - must make a preliminary decision on the pipeline, which will then be sent for consideration to the European Commission for two months.

    What is this if not the gas blackmail of Europe by the ameromarionist "Kiev regime" and the Baltic "limitrophes" ?!
    Zeltz forgot (did not know, because he was joking at KVN wassat ) that the oiled prezik "TsiRukyneKraly Dioxin" started "gas wars" by blackmailing fool Europeans by blocking the gas pipeline through Ukraine (which was the feat of the Russians for the urgent construction of bypass gas pipelines past the unreliable Ukrainian "gas transiters"!) ?!
    Since then, the instability of the "Maidan regime", which unleashed a war with its own population, and the unreliability of the "Ukrainian gas pipelines" have only worsened, because the bandits who feel at ease, armed to the teeth and abundantly supplied with explosives, every now and then, threaten to blow up the Ukrainian gas pipeline along their ! negative
    So in fact, the words of Brawn

    "Europe's gas blackmail must end forever!"

    sound like a call to completely stop the transit of gas through Ukraine, or, by joint efforts of Europe and Russia, to put an end to the unstable "Maidan regime" in Ukraine - this comic "lawyer" himself understands what he is saying ?!

    Right! It is necessary to end forever the gas blackmail of Europe by rejecting Ukraine's gas transportation system!
    So be it.

    Oh, how it itches, it is necessary to put an enema with gramophone needles and of course not forget the ska. It is very reminiscent of an old, old Ukrainian anecdote.

    The man bought oxen at the bazaar. He drives them home, but they can hardly walk, he worried. There is a tavern, he went in to overturn a glass. He began to complain about his misfortune. The innkeeper tells him - there is an opportunity to speed up their step, smear the skiom under their tails and they will go quickly. He smeared the oxen with skiom and they started to run, but he could not keep up with them. He smeared himself. He overtook the oxen and shouts out the window - wife, now the oxen will come running, so you drive them from the stall, and I'll run around the village a little more.

    Here are the figures, the word (ski-pee-da-r) has been shortened in all places. This already began to resemble a letter from the mistress of Schweik from a concentration camp.
