Berlin urged to no longer rely on gas supplies via Nord Stream


Germany does not count on transporting Russian gas via Nord Stream this winter. This was stated by the Minister of Affairs economics and Climate Protection of Germany Robert Habeck.


I believe that we can in no way rely on either Russia or Gazprom, the rest is pure speculation

- emphasized the head of the German economic department (quote from the newspaper Handelsblatt).

Khabek expressed pessimism about gas cooperation between Berlin and Moscow against the backdrop of a halt in the supply of blue fuel from Russia due to the repair of Gazprom's only pumping turbine at the Portovaya compressor station. In this regard, gas pumping was suspended from August 31 to September 2. After the repair work is completed, the volume of daily Russian gas supplies via Nord Stream will amount to 33 million cubic meters.

Currently, the German authorities are declaring the need for a gradual abandonment of Russian energy resources. So, until the end of this year, Berlin is going to stop buying oil and coal from Russia. At the same time, purchases of Russian gas will continue next year, since the cessation of gaseous fuel imports from Russian fields would have a detrimental effect on the functioning of the German economy.

    Apparently, Mr. Robert Habert knows that the last turbine also needs repair and pumping will not be restored. For technical reasons.

    Who makes European countries commit suicide, we have the example of Hungary, there are no suicides there, hydrocarbons are obtained from the Russian Federation many times cheaper and in any volume ... The question is from a slightly different angle, who is trying to kill European countries by provoking the rejection of hydrocarbons from the Russian Federation. Questions about US global politics...

    And all it takes is to support Russia in the conflict. And then all the flows will suddenly start working, and Germany will again become the locomotive of the EU. In the meantime, all of Asia is laughing at a weakened Germany.

    Laughs at Germany and only one country and this country of the United States benefits from this. Well, maybe also the British. the Americans will buy it for a penny, why do they need a competitor? The victim does everything that the one who eats it tells her and it suits him perfectly. Do we need such a Europe? - of course not, and we will gradually and most likely completely leave from there. will they give us something to build up meat on them for the next meal of the Americans?
