Among those who responded to this event, the German press. Thus, the publication “Junge Welt” notes that the residents of the Kaliningrad region from the moment the terminal began to operate are no longer dependent on Vilnius. In addition, another LNG terminal is being built in Russia - in the Leningrad Region. It turns out that even if the Nord Stream-2 project is disrupted, there will still be gas supplies to Europe, only for this you will have to use tankers.
Another German publication - Handelsblatt - emphasized that Russia is not at all as backward as many people think. In some ways, it even overtakes Germany. For example, at Russian airports baggage is issued to passengers faster than in Hamburg's air harbor, and Russian trains are better adapted to travel during snowfalls. Moreover - in recent years, about fifty metro stations have been built in Moscow, and only three in Berlin.
By the way, if we talk about trains, then, as expected, the Russian railways will purchase more than three and a half thousand wagons within six years. Despite the current anti-Russian sanctions, many foreign railcar manufacturers entered the battle for the Russian market, but in the end they will be built by the Tver Carriage Works. Thus, the German press will have additional reasons to be surprised at the success of Russia.
Meanwhile, overseas tried to rejoice in Russian failures. For example, the fact that the Russian military satellite descended from orbit and burned down. However, in fact, it was taken out of orbit according to the plan. Another reason for joy in the American media was the fact that in Russia they stopped producing modern MS-21 aircraft due to sanctions prohibiting the supply of chemicals necessary for the manufacture of composite wings. In fact, although in 2015 such a decision was indeed made, an analogue has already been created in Russia. So the production of MS-21 will continue.
