The expert appreciated the statement of the new German Foreign Minister on Nord Stream 2

Last week, Annelena Berbock, Soyuz 90 / Greens co-chairperson, became the head of the German foreign ministry. Literally right away, she made a statement that there was currently no possibility of launching Nord Stream 2. At the same time, the cabinet of the new German Chancellor, Olaf Scholz, announced its support for SP-2, emphasizing at the same time its readiness to block the pipeline in the event of "Russian aggression" against Ukraine.

Commenting on Berbock's statements, Igor Yushkov, a leading expert of the National Energy Security Fund, noted that technically the Russian gas pipeline fully complies with all the necessary standards. The main question is how to manage the gas route.

The main claims of the head of the German Foreign Ministry relate to the internal European procedures for the operation of the gas pipeline, according to which the operator and the supplier of "blue fuel" must be different companies in order to avoid monopoly on the gas market. However, in this case, the expert believes, Nord Stream 2 AG can act as the operator of Gazprom, since the Russian corporation has the sole right to export gas, and the requirement for competition has a nominal value.

Meanwhile, the German side confirmed that Nord Stream 2 AG could be the operator of Gazprom, stating the need for its registration in Germany. This process is underway now.

German Foreign Minister Annalena Berbock distorts the facts for electoral reasons and presents purely bureaucratic moments as a problem

- Yushkov emphasized in an interview with the newspaper LOOK.

At the same time, speaking about the position of the head of the German Foreign Ministry, the analyst pointed out the impossibility of other rhetoric. In this way, Berbock is trying not to scare away voters of the Soyuz 90 / Greens party, which has always advocated limiting the use of fossil energy sources.

In turn, the press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov said that work on the certification of the gas pipeline continues, and the company Nord Stream 2 AG is in the process of fulfilling the requirements of the German regulator.

              All risks of confiscations are taken into account when planning investments. Before writing - you could ask.
              Investments from the States come in exchange for buying their government debt.
              Therefore, China and Japan are the largest holders of it. bully

          They did not manage to lead the country when they were called communists; they did not succeed in leading them when the sign was changed to Feudalism. For this, there must be a head with the brains of a leader, not a thief.

    The Minister of Economy is there. development also from the "Greens" So let them discuss in the government how to give up gas and support the industry in Germany. And it is better to transfer the industry of the Federal Republic of Germany to the Russian Federation. It will be cheaper for corporations!

    This former activist, like the girl Greta, simply voices training manuals from overseas. It is a pity that such strange ladies come to power in such a developed country.

      This is the German version of Sveta-cutlet. A housewife without education became a minister at the suggestion of Soros circles.
      When a person does not have his own head, it is easy to control him. Let's see how long she will last in office.
      With her talents, she can discredit the entire green agenda. hi

    Poor Annalenka had a cognitive dissonance in her head. While in her youth she was “greening” against the use of oil and gas, the price of gas rose by 10 times, which greatly hits the wallet of not only ordinary German burghers, but the entire German industry. And now, when very important uncles come into your office and say - stop doing nonsense (I think there are stronger expressions, and the German language contributes to the expressiveness of turns) - she has to sit on two chairs in a burning apartment. And if you add Uncle Sam's pointers, then at the same time also lie on the table in an interesting position ...

      Annalena managed to lie 2 times in her 11-page biography. When she starts talking "on her own," she is talking complete nonsense. This is a person who does not know the difference between cobalt and kobold, who believes that in Europe all electrical appliances are connected to one type of electrical outlet, although while studying in England she should have known the difference between English electrical outlets and German and French ones, etc.
      During her studies in England, she was unable to passably learn the language of this country.
      Here is such a "minister" of foreign affairs. This trend of appointing people to positions of responsibility without the appropriate education and work experience in modern Germany has become unfortunately the norm.
