Completing Nord Stream 2 will cost Kiev billions of dollars by ending Russia’s reliance on Ukraine for transporting gas, and therefore must be stopped, according to Aleksey Reznikov, the country’s deputy prime minister. RT Apr 9, 2021 13:23
Now everything becomes clear.
This is nothing to do with Russian “aggression”, but an excuse by the West and other actors in Europe and the US to shut down the completion of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline.
“The Nord Stream-2 project that is currently under preparation can pose certain risks for energy security in the region of central and eastern Europe,” the letter, dated March 7, says. (Reuters)
The ‘certain risks’ is Ukraine would lose out on a source of income. What better way to prevent that than getting NATO to stop construction. Only there is another ‘consideration’ aka actor.
In a document called ‘fact sheet’ on the US opposition to Nord Stream 2, the [US] State Department demands that all related parties “immediately cease construction-related activity” in a “good-faith wind-down,” adding that those who lack this good faith would face sanctions.
This one is really simple. The US sell tankers of gas and oil to Europe.
With Nord Stream 2 up and running, the US lose out.
Which brings about an interesting conflict for Europe.
Germany WANTS the pipeline as another source of gas supply.
After all the Russians did turn the gas taps off after Ukraine didn’t pay their bills and that did affect supplies to Germany.
Problem is, Germany is a NATO member.
So who will fight if push comes to shove?
With Germany, still the power house of Europe, thinking about their economic security. Why would they wreck their future?
There will also be countries that would benefit from NS2.
No, all this fuss, and increased danger to the world, would seem to be is about money for Ukraine and the US.
Problem is the absurdity that is called NATO.
Something that lost it’s relevance when the evil USSR collapsed.
They, collectively, are just too stupid to understand that they have turned into pawns to support BIG BUSINESS, and most of those business interests are something to do with the US.
Just think, if WW3 starts, history (as written by the West) will list it as NATO (aka US) fighting off Russian aggression. While the East will list it as the West’s military acting as heavies to support the US Dollar.
