German Foreign Minister Annalena Berbock said the Russian Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline could not be approved due to non-compliance with European energy legislation.

She said this in an interview with ZDF .

According to her, the new coalition agreement stipulates that European law should be applied to energy projects.

“This means that in the current state of affairs this pipeline cannot be approved in this way. This is due to the fact that the requirements of European energy legislation are not met, and security issues remain open,” said Berbock. 

Position of the new German coalition

On November 24, the Social Democratic Party of Germany (SPD), Soyuz 90 / Greens and the Free Democratic Party  presented a coalition agreement .

The agreement notes that the new government will support Ukraine’s movement towards membership in the European Union. Also, Germany intends to deepen its energy partnership with Ukraine.

Olaf Scholz  (SPD) became the new chancellor of the FRG  .

Scholz was asked if the new government was ready to suspend Nord Stream 2 in response to Russia’s blackmailing by an attack on Ukraine. He replied that “security in Europe presupposes observance of principles.”

  1. Lets hope it stays banned then and they continue to push for EU admission, hopefully with the money from the EU being used in the same way Spain used theirs.

  2. I can’t help myself but to distrust Germanystan. Maybe it has something to do with Schröder, Merkel, Hitler …
    However, this is still good news … for now.

    • Both Germany and France knew the truth for seven years and as far as I’m concerned those sh*t heads allowed Putin to succeed. Merkel especially was to blame in addition to the idiot in the White House.

      But, that said, I wonder if blame should really go to the Ukrainian President and Rada for their bull crap response. IMHO
