Germany’s FM believes Russian troops along Ukraine borders no reason to bury Nord Stream 2 – media

Rejecting the dubious gas pipe bypassing Ukraine will only “intensify” Russian aggression, Maas suggests.

The aggravation of Russian aggression against Ukraine is not a reason for stopping the construction of the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline. This was stated by German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas.

In the top diplomat’s opinion, “this will not lead to changes in Russian behavior,” Die Welt reports.

“I guess the opposite will happen,” said the chief of German diplomacy.

German Defense Minister Anngret Kramp-Karrenbauer, in turn, earlier made clear her support for the idea of ​​imposing a moratorium on the Nord Stream 2 completion. Construction works could at least be suspended. According to the defense chief, even if the gas pipeline connecting Russia and Germany, bypassing Ukraine, is completed, its operation should depend on how Moscow behaves [in respect of Ukraine].

Die Welt recalls that Nord Stream 2 has become one of the main stumbling blocks in Germany’s relations with the United States. The change of administration in Washington brought no shifts to the situation. The U.S. fears Europe will become overly dependent on Russian gas, therefore Washington threatens to bring construction to a halt through tough sanctions. At the same time, In turn, apologists for Nord Stream 2 believe the U.S. only wants to boost their LNG sales in Europe.

    Spineless bastard. How about threatening to stop Nord Stream if Muscovy don’t remove their trash from inside Ukraine, not only on the border? You don’t even want to give it a chance you fucking nazi.

    • Prussian scum is not representative for Germany, as much as Sussex cannot be representative for England’s Angles and Welsh. They love to hurt the defenseless, like RuSSia. I would ignore this bullshit and focus on Ukraine getting nukes again.

    “Rejecting the dubious gas pipe bypassing Ukraine will only “intensify” Russian aggression, Maas suggests.”
    Those words do not surprise me. Maas is a typical kraut politician; a terminal coward, wimpy, unmanly, having a pencil dick and no scrotum. In short, Germanystan is run by wussies.

    “The aggravation of Russian aggression against Ukraine is not a reason for stopping the construction of the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline.”
    Stealing territories from neighbors; no reason to stop NSII.
    Starting a war for nothing; no reason to stop NSII.
    Murdering people across Europe; no reason to stop NSII.
    Shooting down a civilian airliner; no reason to stop NSII.
    Interfering in elections in Europe and the US; no reason to stop NSII.
    Germanystan has sunk very, very deeply since the 1990s.

        Of course! And, even if something goes against a kraut politician’s conscience, they will follow orders from the fat piece of shit Merkel because they have no honor and no courage. Schroeder is as pesky as dog shit that sticks on the bottom of your shoes. and just as stinky

        • The only hope is either the US block this pipe, or the Greens get elected or form a coalition, they said this pipe is dead in the water if that happens.
