  1. Why NATO wants so badly to expand to Ukraine? What is the end game here? Especially why Germany so eager to "protect" Ukraine, are you guys forgetting what happened last time, when you've tried that, 1945 could be repeated you know.

  2. just give russia the nord stream 2. we do not have a choice. to calm the russia bear give the nord stream or you want nukes to fly? your choice germany… the us already gave up.

  3. only the girl is cute, while this guy, "unfortunately on the table, we put all the table from which the table of Nordstream-2 is Helsinki off the table everything put is democrats in Russia is a table."

  4. Good luck paying more for gas. This will destroy the german industry and that extra fee everybody pays for their industry, their "made in germany" will not make sense anymore.

  5. Germany has for hundreds of years been a ally of Russia in Europe and today is no different, blocking weapons shipments to Ukraine, Organising Nordstream 1 and 2. The two are just working together but many western countries just don't learn from history.

  6. Have so much respect to Germany but I can clearly see now that Germany is self defeating or at least costing the world to bleed again for their own benefits. I understand your obsession with greennnnnm energy and greennnnnn life but you don’t have to kill yourself to be green. You don’t have to eat expensive burger (imported gas and coal) to become a vegan (renewable energy transition). Doesn’t make sense in any aspects.

  7. Do not believe it, Ukrainians !!! The Germans blocked the Weapons Transport from England to Ukraine The Germans did not agree and they had to fly through France !! Do not believe it in Ukraine, you are strong, you have more freedom to fight than the Russians!

  8. Germany stands by Ukraine by blocking allied weapon shipments to Ukraine. Also Nord Stream 2 is a purely economic venture, not political at all, nuh-uh. We need Putin's gas so we can replace the CO2 emission-free nuclear energy we got rid of.

    Wars and devastation in Europe and North America

    However, Russia will not rest and will attack Scandinavia and, in doing so, will involve the whole of Europe. And months before that, a terrible tornado will have swept across northern Europe, causing great devastation and destruction. It should also be stated that the Russian attack will take place during the summer, in fact, from Arhangelsk. Denmark will not be dragged into the war because of the insignificance of this country. However, Russia will not be satisfied with this war action, as its will to expand will be voracious. And consequently, Russia will launch a military attack against Iran and Turkey and conquer these two countries in bloody combat, causing enormous destruction. The Russian expansionist mentality will also include the effort to gain control of the Middle East oil deposits, as well as to gain control of Southeast Europe. Therefore, she will also invade the Balkans and conquer these countries in huge battles, causing cruel and devastating destruction with many deaths. It will be at the time when tremendous natural disasters will hit Italy and her people, causing serious hardship. But this will also be at the time when Vesuvius could become active again and wreak tremendous devastation. At the same time, a war will shake Italy and claim many human lives as well as cause great destruction.

    The destruction of war will befall the countries of the north as strong military forces will invade them from the East and will pillage and murder, as well as use bombs and missiles, like falling hail, and hitherto unknown weapons of laser and computer controlled types that will destroy and annihilate everything, with the first target being Hungary and then Austria and northern Italy. Switzerland will also be severely affected, but not the real target; this will be France and Spain. However, the main objective of the aggressors will be to bring all of Europe under their military control, and for that France will be chosen as their headquarters.

    France will not only be invaded by aggressors from without, but will also be conquered from within as a result of collaborative and other forces. This can be imagined as being the many foreigners of a different religion living in France at that time, and specifically Islam, which will be that force working from the inside out. After France falls, a war to conquer Spain and England will ensue. Subsequently, an alliance will be formed with the forces of the aggressors, which will invade Scandinavia.

    For all these French-based military operations, weapons of mass destruction stored in France's arsenals will be used and will cause devastation, destruction and annihilation. The aggressors from the East will force the French Army to unite its military forces and lead a war of conquest against the countries of Northern Europe, invading and conquering Sweden and Norway. Subsequently, these northern countries will be annexed by Russia. Military forces will also attack Finland, where many will be killed and enormous destruction will be caused. At the same time, as a civil war unfolds in Germany, an enormously bloody revolution will break out in England that will claim more lives than the civil war in Germany. And because England and Ireland have been at war for a long time, due to the IRA and England's police and military forces, the result will be that this revolution will spread throughout Ireland, especially affecting Northern Ireland. Many lives will be lost during a civil war in Wales, where differences between the various parties will arise before the Fourth World War. Welsh and English forces will clash especially near Cymru, and will claim many lives and cause great destruction.

    But death, destruction and annihilation will not only take place in Europe, but also in America, where much suffering will have to be endured and many deaths as well as destruction and annihilation will have to be endured. America and Russia will have the most terrible weapons of mass destruction at their disposal – a fact that is already the case to some extent today – and they will clash with violent force at that moment of conflict, by which Canada will also be dragged into this conflict. The source of this conflict will substantiate the Russian attack on the US state of Alaska and against Canada.

    This conflict will result in mass deaths of human beings as well as devastating destruction, annihilation and epidemics, etc., which Earth humanity has never seen and experienced until then. Not only will nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons be used en masse, but enormously deadly computer-controlled weapons systems that are only in the early stages of development today, or will be invented and built during the third millennium.
