Eh Russia never got Norway's permission to build that pipe in their waters to start with. So if a country decides to violate Russia's waters with its own building project that would be okay?.
It is going through their EEZ, not their territorial waters, and not even their mainland... they have an island near the path of the pipes.
Russia is not threatening to build it anyway, they have rerouted it in a direction where they don't need Denmarks permission to build the pipeline.
If they were acting like the US they would have declared the current regime in Denmark to be a dictatorship and bomb them and declared the opposition leader leader of Denmark and have a bit of regime change... and of course seize their foreign assets of course to pay for everything.
"Russia needs to make clear that if Nord Stream II does not go ahead that the EU will be paying a lot more for liquified gas being shipped".
That is threating, did I say Russia was actively threating Denmark no, I said doing that would be a threat. Which is a common tactic we use in the US they whine about all the time.
Russia has built pipelines to transport gas to the EU, the Soviets built the first ones, but some of the pipelines going through the Ukraine have not been maintained and gas gets blocked or even stolen, so now they are spending their own money and money of their partners to build alternative routes to ensure the EU gets the gas it needs to meet its energy needs for the next few decades... Denmark is trying to stop the process. Russia has no threatened to invade, there have been no claims of regime change or sanctions against Denmark... except from the US of course... they have no other reason to block the programme.
The fact is that if they don't build Nord Stream II then the EU is in the shit because Russia is cutting off the pipes through the Ukraine whether there are alternative options or not... if there are not then the EU will need to build a lot more terminals to receive LNG from ships... the Russians can still deliver it cheaper than the US, but the EU will pay more for a more expensive and less reliable product.
Also no there is no official documents saying Nord Stream 2 will pass-throughs Denmark EZZ. None that I have see anyways, you can post if you have such information.
The pipes go past a Danish island in the Baltic sea.
The new plan will just put a kink in their design to take them out of territorial waters and into EEZ waters.
Personally I think it is a good idea anyway as it will probably reduce the necessary transit fee costs that could have been paid to Denmark but now wont be.
Bulgaria also pissed around with permission for south stream so the Russians decided to pump it to Turkey and they can sort it out... cost Bulgaria a good income... but I am sure their Washington masters have rewarded them.... NOT.
The EU is full of anti-Russian sh*t. Delinquent payers and thieves like the Banderastanis cannot be expected to get 10 year contracts.
They can at best hope for 6 month probationary contracts. That is the norm in the business world. The Bruxelles EU-tard bureaucrats
are living in their own fantasy land.
Actually shoplifters get escorted from the store and a trespass notice issued against them to never come back into the store again.
Ukraine should steal another Russian ship... I bet that will make them want to give them money to pump their gas through their pipes...
