Berlin: The launch of Nord Stream 2 is possible only after the withdrawal of Russian troops from Ukraine

The German authorities have put forward new demands for the launch of Nord Stream 2, the launch of which could seriously alleviate the European energy crisis and reduce the cost of gas on local markets.

The head of the Bundestag Defense Committee, Marie-Agnes Strack-Zimmermann, recalled that the former Chancellor of Germany, Angela Merkel, considered the Russian gas pipeline a purely economic project. However, according to Shtrak-Zimmerman, this is not true, since SP-2 will provide gas supplies bypassing the territory of Ukraine and therefore serve Moscow's geostrategic goals.

On this, we take a clear position that the launch of Nord Stream 2 cannot happen as long as (Russian President) Vladimir Putin is deploying so many soldiers on the border with Ukraine

– said the deputy.

Thus, Berlin made the start of the pipeline operation dependent on the concentration of Russian troops near the Ukrainian border. Meanwhile, the Kremlin has repeatedly pointed out the absence of plans to invade neighboring countries, as well as the right to move troops and military equipment within the country at their own discretion. The West's accusations of aggressive intentions are being used to artificially escalate the international situation in the region.

        Of course we remember, here is from the memoirs of an officer of the commandant's platoon from 1944:

        The most unpleasant thing in the service of the commandant's platoon was the execution of sentences for the Banderaites, these bastards tried to bite their veins out of fear, and from this they were all covered in blood and shit, where they had so much shit from - no one knows. They had to be dragged to the place of execution, and these meters were accompanied by stench and howling, they could not stand on their feet. The spectacle was disgusting and more than once the question arose of shooting these nits in some barn and not demonstrating these freaks in full "color", but the order was not changed - Hang! ...

    If Germany starts making political demands for SP-2, then Russia needs to round off cooperation with Germany. Let him look for gas all over the world, let him sell his products to Africa, Latin America, let him buy business resources in Australia and Brazil. And also squeeze it out of the markets of the former USSR.

        Against the backdrop of a multiple increase in gas prices in Europe, which has put European producers of nitrogen fertilizers in a difficult position, EuroChem announced negotiations to buy one of the largest fertilizer producers in Europe.
        The Russian EuroChem group, one of the world's leading producers of mineral fertilizers, has begun negotiations with the Austrian Borealis on the acquisition of its nitrogen business: three enterprises in France and one each in Germany and Austria.

    Thus, Moscow can make the launch of the pipeline dependent on the concentration of American atomic bombs in Germany. Until they remove it, there will be no gas!

    Острие формируемого "копья" Англия-Польша-Украина направлено в тело России и Белоруссии. Именно там сосредоточена наша войсковая группировка. Таким образом, требование Германии направлено на создание благоприятных условий для удара Штатов и Великобритании по России.

    It would be necessary to break the gas agreement in response to the provocations of Ukraine. Even if SP-2 is not launched, in three years even African countries will not be considered with Germany, after the collapsed non-competitive economy.

      Germany in the twentieth century lost the world wars, perhaps still paying reparations to Israel. This country is not independent in its decisions. It seems that Zelensky has relatives everywhere. smile

    Well, what is this Shtrak being harassed for? Do you need a pipeline? Yes, okay. Well, it’s not given to anyone to put brains into someone else’s head that could tell her: “It’s a pity for this independent (or maybe already stale?) So what’s the matter? Get gas and supply those you feel so sorry for.” About the "withdrawal of Russian troops. This is also very" original.

    Yes, let this gas pipeline stand for itself until better times. It will be necessary - they will ask.
    It’s better to fill Russia with this gas, otherwise I’ll have to heat firewood 160 km from Krasnodar.
    Ukraine complains that their gas is expensive, and a huge part of the Gas Producer nervously smokes on the sidelines. When will we stop looking into the mouth of foreign countries? Won China, as soon as the smell of fried immediately reoriented to the domestic market.
    Let the Monopolist carry out previously signed contracts, and all the rest only after the Citizens of the Power are provided. And then only surpluses, only surpluses.

    Nord Stream 2 is the most unique project, without pumping a single commercial cubic meter of gas. ahead of schedule for 5 years paid off the investments of the Russian side, and continues to make a profit!! Brilliant!!
