Why Nord Stream is most likely not going to be launched on time


The crisis, excitement and anxious expectations in Europe are always in the hands of the United States. deteriorating economic The situation and the bad investment climate of the EU are forcing billions of dollars to flow into the "safe haven" of America, which from now on will do everything so that there will never be stability overseas. No matter what they say in Brussels, no matter how they slander Russia, the shutdown (on a permanent basis) of the Nord Stream is beneficial only to Washington. And, apparently, Canada's compromise solution on turbines for the Russian gas pipeline did not fit into the American concept of maintaining chaos in Europe.


Therefore, the task of the White House is to disrupt the sending of equipment to repair the gas pipeline, or to ensure that this happens as late as possible so that after the planned maintenance of the main line, it does not reach peak capacity or does not work at all. This became evident in the two stages of Ottawa's political decision to ship the turbine unit to Germany. Firstly, the decision was delayed as much as possible, although its positive outcome was known in advance. And, secondly, the timing of the physical delivery and start-up of the repaired important unit is as "blurred" as possible.

The United States is trying to prevent Canada from “saving face”, which has fallen between two fires, and also to prevent Russian gas from being given to Europe for a well-known reason. So far, all the cards are in the hands of Washington. The dispatch of the turbine is scheduled for mid-July, so its delivery to Germany and then to Russia for installation will take at least two weeks, not taking into account the time for installation in the system. Thus, most likely, Nord Stream will never be launched at full capacity after maintenance, or in the worst case, will not start at all. It was the latter scenario that was feared in the EU. In this case, it will come absolutely artificially, in the "manual" mode.

According to representatives of the Canadian side, legal "red tape" is now taking place - logistical issues are being agreed upon, formal permits, which, obviously, they always try to avoid in emergency cases. But the US needs further aggravation of the crisis, so problems arise even with a positive decision. What can I say about the second turbine, which only has to go to Canada for repairs. Most likely, an even sadder fate awaits her than the first. So the epic with the unstable Nord Stream will continue for a long time. Only the States will benefit from this, while Russia, Europe and, of course, Canada, which is losing its image, can be listed among the victims.

    Strange war. Europe says that Russia must be defeated on the battlefield, and Russia itself finances its defeat. I would have declared war on Ukraine a long time ago, for shelling our cities, cutting off gas and oil to Europe, for financing a terrorist state. Stop fighting with white gloves! We need to get this done ASAP. They will not need to create problems for Europe and Ukraine! Not to fat, to be alive!

      So, to sort out the "oddities" of this full-scale hybrid war of the entire NATO against the Russian Federation ... If there is a war, then press to the fullest in order to win and end the war, otherwise you lost with all the consequences ... So maybe in our ranks the fifth column and other liberals and democrats, (which is one and the same), and therefore such oddities with gas supplies to enemies supplying weapons to the Ukrainian regime ... The Germans, excellent warriors, here they were in the early twentieth century saying that during the war, excessive humanity and other actions are only the way to prolonging the war and defeat ...

      Will we leave Russia without money? I understand that you have already concluded new contracts for the supply of gas and oil with other buyers?

        There are no problems with buyers. All of Russia from the Baltic to Sakhalin. 140 million population. The only difference is that the proceeds from the sale will go to the development of Russia. Now Europe is spending the money received from gas processing on the purchase of weapons to destroy Russia, and will be forced to spend on survival.

          Don't be so naive. During the implementation of the so-called. tax maneuver Russia refused to supply oil to Belarus at prices excluding the tax maneuver. And this is 22 million tons (Belarus has been and remains the second largest consumer of Russian oil in the world). This did not suit Belarus. As a result, Russia somehow managed to attach the unfortunate 2 million tons of deliveries to India from the dropped volume of deliveries. Remind me what happened in the end? Please! Russia made concessions to Belarus in order to maintain the volume of trade and the level of income from this. And this despite the fact that the oil well can be stopped. But the gas well cannot be stopped. That is why they are delivering to Europe.

          Europe will face a dilemma - stop arming Ukraine or be left without gas. So to say - you will receive gas immediately after the disarmament of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. I am sure that they will make a choice not in favor of Ukraine.

          People absolutely do not understand the economics of gas. Well, Germany will not receive gas. So what? Well, the Germans will freeze a little, or maybe not. Some enterprises in the winter can stop for a while. What about us? What is the use of this? One harm. The budget will not receive. There will be nothing to buy equipment, spare parts and even some strategic materials and the same smartphones that have become second bread. In addition, almost all agricultural machinery is imported. You can't do without spare parts And it's not so easy to supply the entire population with gas. We need to build infrastructure. Yes, and gas for the population is inexpensive

      Everyone wants it, me too. It's just that it most likely won't. War is a very costly undertaking. Where to get money? Mostly from the sale of oil and gas. And the second moment. You can’t turn off gas so easily, like water from a tap in the kitchen. It has to go somewhere. And there are no gas pipelines to Asia. Therefore, gas will go to Europe, but I hope in small quantities. It is necessary to punish these Europeans and show them where they belong.

    In order to put pressure on the US and Canada, the EU must put economic pressure on England first. There are levers for this, especially since England is no longer a member of the EU. Let Baba Liza, as the chief leader of Canada, rush in and put pressure on her vassals so that they do not sabotage the supply of repaired turbines. The reputation for reliability is lost.

    The North American states cannot but reckon with the backbone of the EU - non-Mechanism, otherwise the EU=NATO as the main support multiplying the potential and world hegemony of the North American states may lose its significance and thereby undermine the hegemony of the North American states, which is extremely undesirable in the light of the confrontation with the PRC, the Russian Federation and other different not quite loyal state formations around the world.

    Because you are a steelworker. Political problems are dealt with by the pros. The declaration of war will make everyone helping Ukraine (and they will not stop doing it) PARTICIPANTS in the war on the same side. We will inevitably find ourselves at war with NATO countries. Pretend we don't understand? Then we are patient. The authority of the state has been lost for centuries. Reply?
    We are doing just fine without declaring war. Yes, they are getting help. And we can stop this with real bombing of Ukraine's infrastructure. But as long as this assistance is not significant, we do not do bombing. Because it is more difficult to return from that situation. And only a decision that can be abandoned is good.

    Without having a grain of knowledge, write such heresy.


    For 140 million citizens, we still need to bring the pipes to the stove. Have you calculated how many million kilometers of pipes you need to lay? Whose account is this? I saw prices, how much more profitable it is to sell THERE, instead of a backwater of forty houses hundreds of kilometers away. The plate is already old, but for us the prices have not changed much. Prices THERE have increased many times over, and the profitability of selling THERE has grown even more. Yes, if you had a head on your shoulders, you would understand WHY the gasification of Russia is so small. 30...40%. That's why. that the price of gas in the USSR was 42 kopecks per person living in an apartment per month. The price in Germany was hundreds of times higher. Therefore, "Friendship" and other deliveries were a priority. Is the budget a virtual concept for you? There are 43 million pensioners in Russia. How will they live if .....?

      And the lives of the Russians, smart guy, at what price do you think, you were not mistaken, the killed military and children, civilians, only because they do not accept fascism. The price is now $1700 per 1000 cubic meters. All unfriendly countries need to sell at the market price. They violated contractual obligations, where there is a clause on sanctions in the contracts. It follows from your table that Russia, by selling cheap gas, punishes itself, so it turns out that a doctor with 33 years of experience receives 30000 rubles. Now recalculate what the salary of a physician should be. Draw a table. You won't find a very interesting picture. And how many jobs will appear. And read the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation, where there is treason. Then trade, but first you will transport your relatives to the ZONE of the military operation.

        You forget that energy trading is just a business.
        Imagine yourself (if you can) as a potato farmer. You have a buyer who buys your crops in bags at a price of 20 kopecks per kilo and at the same time constantly whines about a discount and complains about a small salary. And there is a buyer who will take everything in bulk and not haggle at 10 rubles per kilo. And now attention, the question: "So to whom will you, the farmer, sell your crop?" The answer lies on the surface. Of course, you have the head of the local administration above you, who obliges you to sell your potatoes to your own. Yes, and the emergency reserve will order to replenish. And you, of course, follow these orders (otherwise you won’t work, and you have a family-children). But you will allocate only the very minimum for your own and in the bins. And sell the rest to the aforementioned buyer. Because you need new equipment, you need to pay taxes, you need to pay salaries, you need to provide for your family, and so on. And, as you can see, there is no place in this scheme for the price of people's lives. Is it clear now?

          You are mistaken, people's lives are always present in the form of security in trading. But trading, making a profit in order to be killed is cynicism or the hope that not you will be killed, but a neighbor. And where will we come with such logic, but one of us, the survivors, will be profitable, have a yacht and seek shelter around the world.

        Hastened to discuss. There have already been answers to this. Forced to repeat and add. People absolutely do not understand the economics of gas and oil exports. Well, Germany will not receive gas. So what? Well, the Germans will freeze a little, or maybe not. Some enterprises in the winter can stop for a while. What about us? What is the use of this? One harm. The budget will not receive. There will be nothing to buy equipment, spare parts and even some strategic materials and the same smartphones that have become second bread. In addition, almost all agricultural machinery is imported. Not without spare parts. No spare parts - a drop in productivity. Most of the seeds are imported. And it is not so easy to supply the entire population with gas. We need to build infrastructure. And that's time and money. They began to do this, well, as always, belatedly. Yes, and gas for the population is inexpensive, not just behind the cordon.

    Because foreign shareholders not only do not want to throw money away and lose their investments, but also dream of robbing as long as possible and receiving windfall returns on invested capital.
    In addition, V.V. Putin constantly convinces Western "partners" on all platforms of the safety and profitability of investments in Russian infrastructure projects, and counter desires, sooner or later, must break through the separation barrier built by the USA, but for this, the Russian Federation must first prove its worth and survive in the political economy war with the West.
