Ukraine's allies seek countermeasures after Putin orders troop movements | DW News

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said Tuesday that Germany has taken steps to halt the process of certifying the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline from Russia. He told reporters in Berlin that his government was taking the measure in response to Russia’s actions in Ukraine.
The UK announced sanctions against five Russian banks and three “very high-net worth individuals” including oligarch Gennady Timchenko, who Prime Minister Boris Johnson called out by name before Parliament.
The presidents of the European Council and the European Commission, Charles Michel and Ursula von der Leyen, said that a meeting of EU foreign ministers will take place today at 4 p.m. (1500 GMT) where a package of sanctions against Russia will be decided.
Meanwhile, the Russian Duma and self-proclaimed republics of Luhansk and Donetsk have ratified friendship treaties.

  1. I appeal to the whole world, help Ukraine! help or you will see the birth of a monster with nuclear weapons, doing evil with impunity, where they want, when they want! I beg you not to be indifferent. The world order is under threat.

  2. Nord II hasn't been operational yet, shut down Nord I, cut off Russia from every possible resource. Oh and stock up on your iodine tablets and any anti radiation preparations you might have. This is now World War III!

  3. Hahaah very funny , why didn't they suspend nord stream 1 ? They suspended stream which is not active yet. They could suspend nord stream 3 4 and also 11 too, anyway none of them not exist .

  4. Today, Ukrainians are fighting for our Polish, German, French-European FREEDOM, INDEPENDENCE, DEMOCRACY AND SECURITY. The price is blood and life, men, women and children! In europarlament they shout "THE RULE OF LAW" and cut subsidies for Poland, impose fines. When a criminal is killed in Ukraine people, you defend him and your money, you shout "Opposition to Russia being cut off from SWIFT." How much does human life mean to you? How many more men, women and children have to die for Germany to recognize that now it is already illegal and it pays to cut off Russia from SWIFT? What has changed in you since World War II? What does "never again" mean to you …?

    Heute kämpfen die Ukrainer für unsere polnische, deutsche, französische – europäische FREIHEIT, UNABHÄNGIGKEIT, DEMOKRATIE UND SICHERHEIT. Blut und Leben sind ein Preis für Männer, Frauen und Kinder! Sie verteidigen ihn und Ihr Geld, Sie rufen „Opposition gegen die Ausgrenzung von SWIFT in Russland!" Wie viele Männer, Frauen und Kinder müssen noch sterben, damit Deutschland erkennt, dass es jetzt schon illegal ist und es sich lohnt, Russland von SWIFT abzuschneiden? Was hat sich in Ihnen seit dem Zweiten Weltkrieg verändert? Was bedeutet "nie wieder" für Sie …?

    Dziś Ukraińcy walczą o naszą, polską, niemiecką, francusko – europejską WOLNOŚĆ, NIEPODLEGŁOŚĆ, DEMOKRACJĘ I BEZPIECZEŃSTWO. Ceną jest krew i życie, mężczyzn, kobiet i dzieci!Krzyczą „PRAWORZĄDNOŚĆ” i obcinają dotacje dla Polski, nakładają grzywny. Kiedy przestępca zabijana na Ukrainie ludzi, bronicie go i swoich pieniędzy, krzyczycie „Sprzeciw wobec odcięcia Rosji od SWIFT”.Ile dla Was znaczy ludzkie życie? Ile jeszcze mężczyzn, kobiet i dzieci musi zginąć, aby Niemcy uznały, że teraz, to już jest niepraworządne i opłaca się wam odciąć rosję od SWIFT? Co się w Was zmieniło od II wojny światowej? Co znaczy dla Was "nigdy więcej"…?

  5. Russia is a great country and
    we have the best president in the world!!!
    USA and Europe turned Ukraine in a millitary basa..
    stop involving Ukraine in NATO
    and It will be the end of the war…
