Russian oil giant Gazprom recently cut natural gas to Germany by 20%. They claimed technical problems were behind the cut. Later they blamed a turbine sent in for repairs and not returned. Russia said they could not pick it up due to sanctions. It was refurbished in Canada.
According to the NY Times, the Russians blame Siemens Energy, saying the company repeatedly cited the need for required documents and certifications.
Germans are starting to panic.
German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said nothing is standing in the way of Russia taking the turbine back. He has it, and nothing is standing in the way of delivery.
The European Union believes Russia is cutting supplies – violating their contract – to punish them for sanctions.
Russia wants to get paid in rubles, and the EU and Germany will not do it.
Germany relies on Russia for about 50% or more of its energy. The loss of this energy is catastrophic.
President Trump openly warned woke German government about cozying up to Putin. His prediction comes true now.
Lotsa Redski trolls here. You love Russia so much, go live there awhile and see how that works out for you. Germany leadership caused this problem by being dependent on Russia, the worst, most fickle and manipulative trade partner on the planet. BUT THEY DON’T CARE. It’s the people who may suffer, not the leadership. There’s no “panic” except among the people and they don’t count. The leaders got richer from the pipeline payola. Do a reality check, huh?
It’s clear some people have never worked with Russians or spent time in Communist Countries. Like China, today’s Russia it very Capitalistic. Unlike the Globalist leaning West insanity, Russia has a President that puts Russia first. It appears, some people are still fighting the Cold War. The USSR no longer exist. Soviet Style Communism failed over 30 years ago.
Another issue. Covid Lock Downs weren’t nearly as severe in Russia as in the West. The Russian Government realized early on they were counter productive. So while Russians were allowed to move around freely and operate their businesses, the American Government was forcing a Defective Medication on us and shutting down Middle-class Business. Less than a third of Russia is “vaccinated” because it was allowed to be their choice.
Given all of the persecution of and resistance to Russia, including currency, commerce and rhetoric, no reasonable person blames Russia for this. The leftist Germans with their leftist “conservative” officials deserve this.
One side here is blocking basic relations which are enhanced with commerce. Germany is not assisting in any way.
You’re obviously not the arbiter of what reason is. Russia is the persecutor, and historically so. The Russians have been persecuting everyone they came in contact with since the Communists took over and they’re still doing it every chance they get.
Russia is really fighting the World Economic Forum in Ukraine and Klaus Schwab, a German, is head of the WEF. At this moment in time, Russia is on the right side of history. Russia is not the USSR.
So Canada will be responsible for Germans freezing this winter. Putin is out flanking the West on both the left and the right. This is what happens when a bunch of dumb Liberals deal with a KGB Chess Master.
Canada and Germany are both run by leftist NWO crooks.
When will the Germans learn to stop messing with Russia. How many times do they have to surrender? It’s getting embarrassing.
