German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock says in an agreement with the United States, the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline from Russia will not be permitted to operate in the event of any new “escalation”. Ukraine, Poland and the US have expressed concern over the pipeline’s potential ability to weaken and isolate gas middlemen.
The Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline from Russia will not be allowed to operate in the event of any new “escalation” in Ukraine, under an agreement between Berlin and Washington, Germany’s new Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock said on Sunday.
German Chancellor Olaf Scholz says his government will “do everything” to ensure that natural gas continues to flow through Ukraine and prevent Russia from using its Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline to cripple the former Soviet republic’s economy.
What people are saying?
Richvon She doesn’t say anything new. if russia and ukraine have major battle, then of course the project will be suspended, that is already known. the issue is she needs to find alternative, but she might claim it is not her job.
Jupiter It’s Germany’s loss! Russian gas is much cheaper and reliable. USA wants Europeans to buy expensive American LNG to fill its coffers! Poland, Ukraine stand to lose $billions when Russia no longer need to pass its gas through their territories!!
