Germany’s Steinmeier angers Kyiv with his comments on Nord Stream, WWII

Germany’s Steinmeier angers Kyiv with his comments on Nord Stream, WWII | DW | 09.02.2021

Ukraine’s ambassador to Berlin on Tuesday slammed “questionable historical arguments” made by German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier regarding the Nord Stream 2 pipeline. Andriy Melnyk’s reaction came as officials from Ukraine and many other European countries have grown increasingly frustrated with the German government’s insistence on completing the project and effectively doubling the amount of gas that Germany imports from Russia.

Russia: If you want peace, prepare for war.

EU: We want war but will yet again feign a peace. Those are our instructions.

PS:

Q: Why didn’t the Germans insist Navalny return 2 weeks earlier and report as his probation required?

A: Because unlike Lenin who they sent home on a train, they sent Navalny home on a plane. Other than that, two peas in a pod.

One minute of analysis by Mercouris contains more truth than one day of analysis by all of the U.S. & UK ‘news’-mediua.

That’s a bit of a stretch calling anything the US/UK media do as ‘analysis’. Far as I’m concerned, even Scientologists have a better grip on reality than that motley crew.

We’re very upset that nations are beginning to doubt our ‘exceptionalism’, or redefine it in other than glowing terms.

Is Germany a sovereign state, or does it have to grovel to the corrupt Ukronazis?

Germany has been an occupied state since WW2; occupied by the U$A.
The Ukronazis are all hot air, and are unable to complain to their benefactors: U$A.

The CIA has always liked those violent fascist types, as they’re conveniently malleable and compliant. It used to be confined to South and Central America and SouthEastern Asia but has now found fertile ground in Eastern Europe, with Ukraine being the poster boy.

It grovels under the American gavel and the Ukranazis are a planned peripheral effect.

Those Ukranazis belong on a petri dish deep freezed in some biological warfare depository. Outside the US or UK of course, lest they be cloned. Just looking north to the US’ neighbor Canada should raise ‘5 alarm’ alarm bells.

Better still, thrown into the burning fires of hell where they belong.

Anyone with a working mind can see the US/EU’s entire position as transparently fallacious and simple nonsense. On the one hand, they argue that it would make the EU too reliant on RF’s gas and on the other, they insist the very same gas goes through Ukraine.

Contradictory positions are never an obstacle to plain vanilla propaganda, as it relies on simple premises for simple minds. That’s all they need to succeed as Goebbels, I believe, once said.

If Russia ever decides to finally take the gloves off in its fight with the bare knuckles gang, it would send in saboteurs to blow up the Ukrainian pipes and blame it on Yarosh, who more than once threatened to do so.

After all, what’s good for the goose…..

There is no point in blowing up anything when all you need to do, is simply TURN OFF THE TAP. Once the new line is completed, I have strong suspicion this is what will happen, and I commend Russia when it does. After all, the Ukrainians are such good buddies of the Americans, I’m sure the Americans would be so pleased to be able to off load their EXPENSIVE Fracking gas on them.

Simple solution. Seize Iranian, Syrian and Venezuelan gas and oil on the high seas and redirect it to Ukraine.

I thought that one drop of novochok kills instantly. This was said during the Skripal affair.Why is Navalny alive at all???

Most likely of the 3 times they tried with novichok, two times were antidotes given in error.

Novichuk is a military weapon not something from a Hollywood movie script. If NATO-CIA employee and Yale Univ. honoree Navalny had actually been exposed to it, everyone in the room with him would be deceased.

He used Armand Hammer’s jock itch powder and saved his arse.

If only the American public knew the political underpinnings of the Arm and Hammer name and that its products they buy would just as accurately be labeled Hammer and Sickle. Son of an American Communist cutting deals with Stalin and ending up washing America’s clothes and salving its jock itch and body odor. Boy, what a story the History Channel is passing up.

They could have Al Gore come out of retirement and narrate.

L.O.L. Well didn’t the Ukraine chuck out the baby with the bath water ??? This is what happens when you get too greedy for your own good. The Ukraine used the transport of Russian Gas as it’s own private milch cow, and stole gas on top of charging exhorbitant fees for transfer of said gas. So Russia decided to cut them out of the loop. Now they’re crying buckets of tears ? L.O.L. Serves them right.
