US sanctions can stop the North Stream 2, the Eastern Committee of the German Economy

on Sat Jan 12, 2019 1:01 pm
US sanctions can stop the North Stream 2, the Eastern Committee of the German Economy

The introduction of US sanctions against the Russian gas pipeline "North Stream 2" could disrupt this project, but because it essentially stopped it

This was stated by the executive director of the East German Economic Committee, Michael Garms, Deutsche Welle.

"The implementation of North Stream-2 involves 627 contractors from around the world, including some very specialized enterprises, such as pipe layers, which have unique technologies, and sanctions against them would at least very slow down the implementation of the whole project, and in the worst case, it would have been ripped off, "said Harms.

At the same time, the economist called the sanctions against the gas pipeline project "an interference with European sovereignty" and "contrary to the German economic interests."

"In principle, we consider such sanctions to be harmful from the point of view of the stable and long-term provision of energy from Germany and Europe. "The sanctions are contrary to the German economic interests, but this is not the main thing. The main thing is that they would become a blatant interference with European sovereignty, against which we strongly protest." - added Garms.

The Eastern Committee of the German Economy represents the interests of German companies operating in the markets of Eastern European countries, including in Russia.

Earlier, the US ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell called on the German government to stop supporting the construction of the Russian gas pipeline North Stream 2.

US President Donald Trump called Germany a "hostage" of Russia because of energy dependence and called on her to stop work on the Russian gas pipeline.

German Foreign Minister Gayko Maas called "the wrong way to resolve energy supply dispute" possible introduction by the United States of sanctions against the Russian gas pipeline "North Stream 2".

Putin will use our seamen as a bargain item, to raise his rating, Denisov

Putin will use our seamen as a bargain item, to raise his rating, Denisov



Moscow said it was possible for Russian seamen to exchange Russian prisoners in Ukraine this year in order to look at the reaction of the Ukrainian side and Putin's political rating inside the Russian Federation.

According to Censor.NET, this opinion was expressed by the Verkhovna Rada Human Rights Commissioner Lyudmila Denisova on the evening broadcast of the "Direct" TV channel.

"I think Putin will use our seamen as a bargaining chip in order to raise political popularity in his country, so as for the exchange, I think he starts rumors to see how we react," Denisov said.

The Ombudsman refused to comment on this information, since he should receive data only from official sources, and these were not received by her.

At the same time, Denisova noted that in this case, all without exception, sailors should be released and transferred to Ukraine, and it is not about exchange. They are prisoners of war, not political prisoners.

Recall that on November 25, the Navy of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reported that the Russian Federation border troops had carried out aggressive actions against Ukrainian ships that were carrying out a planned transition from the port of Odesa to the port of Mariupol of the Sea of ​​Azov. In particular, the Russian border ship "Don" carried a ram of the Ukrainian raiding tug, which damaged the main engine of the ship, lining and liner fencing, as well as a life raft lost. The Navy of the Armed Forces of Ukraine stressed that the intention to implement the transition was warned in advance and acted within the framework of international law.

At the same time, the Russian Federal Security Service says that the three Ukrainian warships in the Azov Sea "illegally entered the territorial waters of the Russian Federation and headed for the Kerch Strait."

Later, the Ukrainian Navy reported that the Russian Federal Security Service's boats were defeated by defeat to the IAAC "Berdyansk", is wounded . And then they announced the seizure of all three ships by special forces of the Russian Federation and six wounded.

On November 26, the Verkhovna Rada voted for the introduction of a military state for 30 days in Vinnytsa, Donetsk, Zaporozhye, Lugansk, Mykolaiv, Odesa, Sumy, Kharkiv, Kherson and Chernihiv regions, as well as the internal waters of the Azov-Kerch water area.

The decision to introduce a martial law was taken in connection with the act of aggression against Ukraine in the Kerch Strait. As a result of illegal actions of Russian security forces, three ships of the Ukrainian Navy were captured and 24 Ukrainian servicemen captured. Controlled by the Russian Federation, the court of the occupied Simferopol has chosen a precautionary measure for 24 seamen in detention until January 25, 2019.

On November 30, seamen were transported to Moscow: 21 Ukrainians were taken to the Moscow prison "Lefortovo", three wounded - in "Sailor's silence".

Russia explained how Putin could again use the Crimea theme for his own purposes

Russia explained how Putin could again use the Crimea theme for his own purposes

Subsequently, the Kremlin will have to give the Kuril Islands, and he will go for it, in exchange for the recognition of the Crimea Russian.

This opinion was expressed in a column on the "Apostrophe" by Russian political scientist Dmitry Oreshkin.

"It is clear that sooner or later Putin, or he who changes him, will be forced to give up the Kuril Islands. The earlier this will be done, the better the continental territory of the Far East will be able to advance, because it is necessary to invest not only money, but time.

It may well be that Moscow will demand not only investment, but Japan's recognition of the annexation of the Crimea. Since Putin's propaganda component is very important, it would be logical if he did that. In this way, he would remind public opinion that Crimea is ours, because this topic no longer causes previous enthusiasm. Says: "Yes, we gave those islands for some reason, but that's why, but compare what Crimea is wonderful and which are small Japanese islands," the expert believes.

Russia abuses the veto power on the UN Security Council, so Ukraine stands for its phasing out, - Yelchenko

on Sat Jan 12, 2019 1:21 pm
Russia abuses the veto power on the UN Security Council, so Ukraine stands for its phasing out, - Yelchenko



According to the diplomat, because of the abuse of Moscow, the UN Security Council is often paralyzed.

This is the permanent representative of Ukraine to the UN Volodymyr Yelchenko wrote in his article for the publication "Mirror of the Week", reports Censor.NET.

"It is important to find a more active model of participation of the UN in solving the complex challenges facing Ukraine in the context of ongoing Russian aggression - in political, security and humanitarian dimensions," he said.

The diplomat is convinced that there should be more states of Eastern Europe in the UN Security Council.

"Our state also consistently advocates phased abolition of the right of veto, which is especially urgent in the face of aggression against Ukraine by Russia as one of the permanent members of the Security Council," Yelchenko wrote.

"Due to Russia's abuse of the right to veto the Council - whether during the consideration of the Russian-Ukrainian conflict and the situation around the downfall of the Malaysian MH17 aircraft, whether in Salisbury and the situation in Syria, is paralyzed," Yelchenko stressed.

The ambassador added that when a permanent member of the Security Council is a party to the conflict, like the Russian Federation in Ukraine, he should be limited in the possibility of applying the veto right on a matter in which he is an interested party.
