Another step in Russia's energy war? | DW News



Scientists recorded undersea explosions around the Nord Stream pipelines connecting Russia to Germany.
European Union leaders say sabotage is responsible for leaks that are sending plumes of gas into the Baltic Sea.
There are no claims of responsibility, Poland says the leaks marked an escalation in the war on Ukraine. But a Kremlin spokesman says it would be ‘stupid and absurd’ to blame Russia for the attack.

  1. Putin had declared war on Europe – 'winter war he called it – by depriving Europe of Russian energy or gas. But there's a problem for Putin: Russia had entered into an agreement to supply gas to Germany and other countries in Europe has an obligation to keep its side of the bargain. But since Russia had vowed to punish Europe for supporting Ukraine and imposing crippling sanctions on Russia, it has to shut the flow of gas to Germany and committed a breach of the contract. Germany could sue Gazprom and could demand huge amount of damage which could cripple Gazfrom. So it had come up with many excuses for stopping gas flow to Germany – maintenance problems or turbine blades damaged cannot be repaired because of sanctions and so on. Here's the thing: Russia is a genius in cyberattack or sabotage. Russia or shall we say Gazfrom has a lot of reason to damage the two north stream pipes because it could refuse to pay damage for breaking the contract with the excuse that it could not fulfil the contract because the pipes were damaged! You will have to hand it to the Russians – they are the geniuses.

  2. An interesting observation.

    Despite the fact that Russia and the European Union are in hostile military blocs, they are economically very close. Russian resources + EU technologies = sustainable development for both sides.

    And if you think a little, it is obvious that the European Union and Russia should not be at enmity in any case, you only need to trade. And the more the better for both parties.

    But there are forces in the world that are not interested in such an economic union.

    Now Russia has problems with technology, and the European Union with resources. Both sides are losing opportunities for dynamic development.

    The gap between the European Union and Russia is obviously beneficial to the United States, since the military rival, Russia, is being eliminated, and the economic rival, the European Union, is being eliminated. Bingo!

  3. The fact that Europe is pretending to investigate instead of blaming Russia on day 1 tells you everyone knows exactly who did it.
    Doesn't help the guilty party was literally photographed at scene, or told everyone they plan on doing the crime, or is the only party with anything to gain from the crime.
    Alas colonies don't get to complain about their occupiers.

  4. Zelensky grandstands in daily videos. He tells citizens to fight while his family stay away from the action. Why not surrender & save cities and lives! Russia will win either way. With sanctions Ukraine will get undamaged cities back

  5. Germany, I am looking down at you guys now. They blasted away a key infrastructure of yours, that is act of war, and you guys clearly know who did it, but you guys don't even have balls just say it out. Pitty!

  6. Too obviously, US UK destroy NS 2 and 2 , to sink EU , especially German .
    Why Russia , its project , Putin if he wants to sink EU he only turn the valve off , easy and legally in the context of The West sanctions .
    These pipeline are under NATO countries protected sea , those countries are responsible for these damages , the pipelines and environmental damages .

    EU please open your eyes , see with clear eyes and think with unbiased minds , you would know the answer .

  7. RUSSIA’S ECONOMY IS ALREADY DESTROYED BY SANCTIONS SO WHY NOT DESTROY THE ECONOMIES OF EUROPE TOO ? PUTIN WILL USE THE ENERGY NUCLEAR OPTION AMD TURN OFF THE GAS TO EUROPE IN WINTER.

  8. Russians doing this is nuts. Likewise it would be crazy for the Americans to have done it is well. Neither make no sense. Why would american Sabotage the main gas line to its Partners when russia is now in its heels. No way the Americans did this

  9. Biden: I will end the pandemic and also the European pipeline, the people can freeze to death for all I care, democracy must be uphold at all costs…
    We will continue to sell weapons to Ukraine, but our business now will also expand to energy sales to EU if they need it

  10. The bombing gas pipeline is to cut the ties between Russia and Germany. It affects German highend industries and German research and banking. They forced to move to US. US Biden promised you an end to German-Russia pipeline in Feb 2022 reply. German economy ruined. Germany spine broken. Germany will go bad. however, German people will strong again and fight back. Good luck Germany.

  11. – Holmes, what do you think – who is to blame for the blowing up of pipelines?

    – Definitely Putin.

    – Why do you think so?

    – Elementary, Watson – if not for him, would we blow them up?
