Rahr: The situation with Nord Stream 2 is approaching a denouement


The Russian gas pipeline Nord Stream 2, which is expected to launch in a few months, could significantly ease the tight grip of the energy crisis that is shackling Europe. An important word about the launch of the SP-2 must be said in Germany. However, not everyone in Berlin is ready to give the green light to the new pipeline.


As Germanic writes political expert Alexander Rahr in his telegram channel, the Green party, after coming to power, promises to block Nord Stream 2. Although the SPD, led by Olaf Scholz, prevailed in the last parliamentary elections, the Greens will receive the Foreign Ministry in the new government, as well as the climate, environmental and energy departments.

Apparently, Moscow will have to deal with German politicians opposed to the functioning of the SP-2. The Greens believe that Nord Stream 2 will harm Europe and Ukraine, which will lose Russian transit. Thus, the party supports Washington's position on the Russian pipeline.

The SPD understands that German companies are involved in the project, and are ready to defend economic interests of Germany. The Greens insist on showing solidarity with the United States and Ukraine. According to the leaders of the third party of the coalition, the Free Democrats, Brussels should decide the fate of SP-2.

Alexander Rahr believes that in the current situation in Berlin must learn to negotiate and recognize the interests of other parties.

The situation around Nord Stream 2 is approaching a denouement. I personally think that the project cannot be stopped due to the objective demand of the Europeans for additional Russian fuel. But we live in a strange time, when emotions and ideologies are off the charts, and sometimes politicians, due to their short-sightedness, can make the most stupid decisions, to the detriment of themselves and society. But it's up to real experts to show all possible risks.

- noted Rahr.

    The one whom we respectfully call Santa Claus from childhood will help Russia, and the Germans will help them make the right decision.

      But before that, after the collapse of the USSR and without the joint venture and the joint venture-2, all of Europe received the same gas. What problems?

        The problem of a wild territory, through which gas used to go in transit.
        The problem of the inadequacy of wild authorities and peresenye savages.
        Quite good arguments so as not to have more business with you.

    The "greens" of Germany are useful ide ... ets for the Russian economy! Soon German industrialists will begin transferring their enterprises to the territory of the Russian Federation, where energy resources and labor are much cheaper. Capitalismus!

      By the way, an interesting thought, but there are doubts about reality.

      Passionate about this doctrine "Salvage conquers evil", the Minister of Defense of Russia A. Serdyukov got burned with a Mistral-type UDC. We lost time, but did not receive the UDC.

    A huge plus for analysts, forecasters of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Gazprom, and personally SVR. laughing

    Let's say, “in the future (after all, one cannot“ swear ”of anything in the current“ Ukraine ”, torn apart by“ privatizers ”and“ metalworkers ”, oversaturated with armed extremists,“ infantry ”of kleptooligarchic organized crime groups, who are fiercely competing with each other for the meager remnants of the under-plundered Soviet legacy. ..) "A major man-made accident (or even a catastrophe) at a rather worn-out transit ukrgas pipeline is quite possible ?!
    Will this not shake the "solidarity with Ukraine" of all European opponents of "SP-2" - will the "greens" be "steadfastly endure hardships and hardships" ("to spite Russia by freezing their ears") and purchase overseas LNG at exorbitant prices ?! what

    Why don't the Russian leadership say firmly that there will be no transit through the Nazi after 2024, regardless of whether Germany wants Russian gas or not, and the reason for this is very significant and weighty - an unreliable transit country, and most importantly a Nazi state, a man-hating Bandera policy, Russophobic and anti-Russian elite of the non-profit zone.
