Germany offered a deal: Nord Stream 2 in exchange for gas for euros

The Alternative for Germany party proposed a solution to the gas issue for Germany. Member of the German Bundestag Committee for International policy and party leader Tino Krupalla believes that Berlin could initiate the launch of the Russian Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline in exchange for the opportunity to pay in euros for the supply of blue fuel from the Russian Federation.

The launch of "SP-2" Krupalla considers a necessary measure for the German economics, and the currency issue is not directly related to the functioning of the Russian gas route.

If the euro trade argument helps convince the federal government to put the gas pipeline into operation, then it might be a good idea.

- said the politician in an interview RIA News.

Krupalla also said that Vladimir Putin's decision to pay for gas from "unfriendly countries" in rubles was forced and was the Russian reaction to the freezing of the Russian currency by Western financial institutions. Berlin's goal should be the resumption of bilateral economic relations with Moscow, which will provide good prospects for resolving gas payment issues.

Meanwhile, after Russia recognized the diplomatic status of the Donetsk and Luhansk republics and the special operation in Ukraine that followed soon after, certification of Nord Stream 2 was stopped in Germany. According to the head of the German Foreign Ministry Annalena Berbock, the project is actually in a state of freezing.

    An absolutely unacceptable offer.
    The SP-2 gas pipeline is needed, first of all, by the European Union ..
    Payment for gas in euros is also needed primarily by the EU.

    What is the benefit for Russia here is completely incomprehensible. Does Gazprom insist on launching SP-2?

    Simple SP-2 keeps prices high. Payment in rubles saves Russia's gold reserves. Payment for gas in euros can only be in the event of the complete lifting of sanctions and the unfreezing of Russia's gold reserves.

        In fact of the matter. Europe still pays in euros. They just want free. Hence some wild suggestions.

      Goldrichtig! Deutschland könnte Weißbier durch NordStream2 nach Rußland pumpen und Rußland würde immernoch mit Rubel zahlen.

    The statement is exclusively for the internal electorate. Look, we are good, we put forward proposals. choose us.
    What do these clowns actually offer? Gas transportation will go along a different route, now the Polish gas pipeline is free and it is possible to drive reverse to the horn-nosed pans. The Poles write that they are already receiving gas from Germany (by the way, funny guys laughing they are now going to download it from the great gas powers - the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Lithuania, and of course Germany).

    Currently, Poland receives about 6,5 billion cubic meters of gas per year. thanks to the LNG terminal 5,5 billion cubic meters. is the reverse of the Yamal gas pipeline (Malnov), about 1 billion cubic meters this is another point from the territory of Germany (Lasow), we also have a connection 1-1,5 billion cubic meters with the Czech Republic. In the near future, a gas pipeline from Slovakia with a capacity of 5-6 billion cubic meters will be launched, and from May we will be able to import 2,5 billion cubic meters. from the Lithuanian direction.

    What does Russia get in this case? Zero. We pump gas, and then payment, everything is like with a parcel to Prostokvashino. There is a parcel, but I won’t give it to you because you don’t have documents.
    In general, download for free. Probably, in order to go to the Kremlin with such a petition, you need to have decent Faberge. Who will carry it? After Merkel's departure, there were no men left in German politics. What to do, the fatreland needs heroes, and the Ursulas do not work in their specialty, as a result they give birth ... to those who are.

    laughing We agree! Only even everyone who is not smart already understood. Euro to a Russian bank. There is an exchange for rubles and everything is fine. You give us money for gas. How does this scheme contradict commodity-money relations?

    It’s easier to completely shut off all the taps and flows to the geyrop. It is absurd to sell oil and gas to the enemies of the Fatherland. But apparently they have friends at our helm - that's how they rule.

    Lure, deceit. Coma to believe.
    There is only one way for us / to switch to LNG. Although more expensive, but more reliable

    Interestingly, why should we sell gas, which is quite real, tangible and material, for pieces of paper to which we do not have access? In order to increase the deposits on the accounts? Do they think we're idiots? An increase in the volume of gas is equal to a decrease in its price. Let's work as planned - we are driving gas through several pipes to Europe, and you pay us for your native rubles. If you want to have more gas, open pipe-2.

    You're not good with arithmetic. The exchange of euros for rubles takes place BEFORE gas is purchased. In other words, they first buy rubles, and then Gazprom receives the rubles. If you AT LEAST LITTLE understood in the economy, you would understand that the ruble in THIS case is a PRODUCT. Which one is being bought. And the properties of ANY product - if it is small, it is expensive. If it's a lot, it's cheap. Since there are few rubles in the world economy, its exchange rate becomes much more healthy. The price of the ruble rises. From 150 rubles to the dollar, its exchange rate DURING THE WEEK fell to 73 rubles to the dollar. Learn and you won't look like a fool.
