Who will win and lose from undermining the Nord Stream

After the appearance informationthat the SP-1 and SP-2 gas pipelines received unprecedented damage, it became interesting to find out who wins and who loses from the Nord Stream explosion, i.e. who benefits from what happened and who will be harmed. Without a doubt, the mysterious incidents on both gas pipelines have become a resonant event in light of the approaching heating season in the northern part of Eurasia.

Damage to pipes lying on the bottom of the Baltic Sea will entail large expenses for PJSC Gazprom for repair work. A huge amount of money has been invested in the construction of gas pipelines, while Nord Stream 2, which cost the Russian gas giant $9 billion, was never put into operation.

Now the supporters of the energy "diversification and independence" of Europe, or simply speaking, Russophobes and US-British "grant-eaters", are really rejoicing. They do not hesitate to say that sabotage will help finally put an end to the "dependence" of Europeans on Russian gas and Moscow will lose its leverage over the European Union.

However, ordinary Europeans are unlikely to be happy that in the fall they suddenly lost their capacity to pump 220 billion cubic meters. m of gas, and in the midst of an energy crisis. Yes, Nord Stream 2 was not put into operation, but it was under pressure, and it was possible to start extracting energy raw materials from it at any moment. As for Nord Stream 1, it was not put into operation after the maintenance on September 2, as oil leaks were detected on Siemens turbines at the pumping station. But the repair of turbines and restoration work at the bottom of the sea are “slightly” different tasks in terms of complexity.

Now the Europeans simply do not have these "magic sticks", and the realization of this will soon come to them along with a decrease in the ambient temperature. At the same time, the transit of gas through the territory of Ukraine during the ongoing NWO is becoming more and more problematic due to the fault of Kyiv. Moreover, if transit through Ukraine stops, the EU may even be on the brink of an energy abyss.

In turn, American entrepreneurs and officials who previously invested in LNG production facilities on the US East Coast celebrate the victory and open champagne. American LNG projects have begun to generate stable profits, since it is much cheaper to transport reduced gas to Europe than to Asia. Now the “money” rain threatens to turn into “gold” for Americans, and maybe even “diamond”. And that's not counting political and other benefits, because now Europe depends on the US for energy. Consequently, the European industry has become less competitive on expensive American LNG, having lost cheap Russian pipeline feedstock. Moreover, no one is embarrassed that over the past six months, US military personnel have “accidentally” become frequent guests on the Danish island of Bornholm, near which the mentioned gas pipelines pass. The EU was a serious competitor to the US, but that is now in the past, just like European independence is Washington's success.

It should be added that for 8 months of 2022, industrial production in Germany alone fell by a total of 1,8%, and in some sectors the picture is much worse. For example, the chemical-pharmaceutical sector sank by 10%. In addition, it must be taken into account that the effect of rising prices for raw materials and electricity always manifests itself later, that is, everything will be sadder.

    Why Gazprom should repair Nord Stream? If the Germans need it, then the flag is in their hands. Moreover, the repaired pipeline will be immediately damaged again, there is no doubt. Turkish Stream and the Black Sea, this is what the leadership of Russia and the Black Sea Fleet should be concerned about

          The blocking stake is 25%
          1. About 24% of Gazprom's shares belong to the owners of US depository receipts, and this is almost a blocking stake.
          Through the “Hermitage Capital” fund of the swindler William Browder, for whom both our and Western “democrats” fought so hard, the United States tried to buy shares up to a blocking stake and take control of our national treasure - it did not work out.
          2. Other owners of shares make up about 25%, and who they are is the biggest secret and with a 100% guarantee there are many foreign nationals among them.

          Dear Sinobi, it’s true that Nord Stream-2 is really only 51% of our remaining 49 are Western investors, only Amer is purple for this, they have their own business with which they are not going to share and sneeze at us and European partners, besides who will refuse them what they should not do, they have the largest Navy and Air Force, and this is a very weighty argument, and if the hunchbacked Misha and the elk drunk (the earth is glassy to them) did not hand over everything to the amers for a pittance, then now it would be all exactly, our bases and missiles were all over Europe, but betrayal is still sitting in the highest echelons, but everyone makes smart faces and no one notices this. Only the talkers Solovyov and others like him sing how everything is fine with us, but in fact, over 30 years of capitalism, we have lagged behind the whole world in everything by a hundred years. But our elite got rich by selling us all, their children live in NATO countries, while they can make decisions in favor of our country when they themselves have two citizenships, everyone who has been in power for 31 years of the bourgeoisie has not done anything good, everything has collapsed from sports to electronics, now we don’t even produce our own galoshes, and industries such as textile, machine tool building have been completely ruined, what will happen next is not at all clear, as they say God will not give out - the pig will not eat ...

He then was the Minister of Agriculture and after the end of the war, that is, after the death of Roosevelt, he was thrown out of his post. They tried to kill him for these words.

    There is only one question, but will our politicians have enough determination to give an adequate answer? Or Lavrov and Putin will express their strong concern and draw another red line.
    But on Europe, as a payer for Russian gas and oil, you can put an end to it, God forbid they hold out for six months. The Americans, together with the British, did not find another way to cut them off from Russian energy resources.

    Europe will become like those three Baltic countries with only pensioners without their own industry. But Germany could become a huge gas hub throughout Europe thanks to sp-2, but alas!

    Ukraine, Poland, USA win
    The Northern and Turkish streams were built around Ukraine, in the absence of which Ukraine dictated its transit conditions and annually received about 3 billion dollars.
    Poland built a pipeline from Norway, entered into a long-term contract with the USA and S. Arabia, becoming one of the largest hubs in Europe, which allows it to dictate terms to the same Nemetchyna as the main consumer.
    The United States initially opposed the construction of the northern stream, which won the competition with US LNG.

    Nemetchyna and Russia lose
    Nemetchyna is forced to buy more expensive overseas LNG and make concessions to the Poles.
    The Russian Federation loses leverage, foreign exchange revenues to the budget and gets problems with logistics

    Sabotage is not an easy task, it requires finance, intelligence, executors, technical equipment, cover, operational base, etc., etc.
    Ukraine is far away and it is unrealistic to commit such sabotage alone.
    Poland is nearby, the coincidence of interests and complete mutual understanding with Kyiv, but there is no point in being substituted in the event of an investigation.
    The US intelligence services listen in on the conversations of even the leaders of Nemetchina (Merkel), France (Sarkozy), Italy (Berlusconi) and all the EU=NATO intelligence services are actually branches of the CIA, and therefore could not have been unaware of the preparation of sabotage.

    plus point is that Europe will weaken for the war with Russia, industry (economy) will not withstand
    Asia is in the black, excess gas can be bought cheaper
    Russian economy and industry will be able to earn more from gas processing

    In the current situation with all gas pipelines, in my opinion, there is only one way out. It is natural to break off relations with Europe, with Russophobes in energy. We have invested a lot of money and they spread rot on us and will continue to do so. It is necessary to deal a mortal blow to Europe. Announce and proceed to dismantle all threads. The howl will begin only in Europe (it will be possible to listen to this rhetoric at the moment and think it over and make a decision). It will be cheaper than doing repairs. The costs will be huge, but these pipes can be laid to the east, where it is more necessary and the payback period will certainly increase, but this will be a political advantage. We will still win and we will have a much more tangible advantage in the west. Europe loses, America wins. But!!!!!!!!! Upheavals in Europe will lead to war in Europe, the patience of even the people of Europe is not unlimited. Germany will no longer be the leading economy in the western region. Naturally, this is beneficial for America, but in the end, Germany will get tired of all this. And they will return to us, but on favorable terms for us. History always teaches. Until today, Germany has become powerful thanks to our cheap energy, they are used to it and let their guard down. And the catastrophe that will happen will lead to complete collapse, but it is also dangerous for us. (In terms of the security of our country) the East and partner countries will understand that we are free from the Wild West and will be more willing to cooperate, and our diplomacy confirms this. And we need to start such rhetoric right now. Panic can not be avoided !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
