    The government of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern on Wednesday, January 6, will decide to create a fund in support of Nord Stream 2

    The publication also noted the possibility of creating a climate protection fund by the regional authorities, which in the future will define the almost completed pipeline as "an essential element for protecting the environment in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern." German companies could provide their services to the Russian side through the fund and its enterprise, and not directly to the operator of the Nord Stream 2 project, which would remove them from the threat of sanctions.

    A 150-kilometer gas pipeline was launched in the Czech Republic, which runs from the border with Germany in the north of the country to the border in the west. The main line connects the onshore continuation of Nord Stream 2 EUGAL with southeastern Germany, from where gas also goes to Austria and Italy. The Nord Stream partially operates according to a similar scheme.

    Russian pipelayer "Akademik Cherskii" which spent a month off the coast of Kaliningrad, returned to the place of construction of the pipeline "Nord Stream-2", should be from a data portal for tracking ships Marine Traffic.

    The Czech length of pipeline gives the EU at last some significant North/South transit capacity, this was a major strategic gap now filled. In effect it creates a Western loop from Nordstream to Turkstream, bypassing Ukraine in the event of a significant reduction of gas on that route.

    With the AC now in position it looks like Gazprom will complete that pipeline as quickly as they can whilst the US has other things to occupy them.

    This is the present section under work. Believe it to be the last section however others can verify.

    The section, approximately 147 km long, lies south of the Danish island of Bornholm and is to be connected to a section in German waters currently being completed by Fortuna.

    Thanks for your concern, yes all good. Got reassuring news on my cancers and most of my family was here at Christmas. Plus I got bogged down in watching what was happening in the US, is happening on the Covid vaccines and updating my family tree. Somehow the excellent news on Russian gas supplies didn't make it to the top of the pile. Laughing

    Its good news potentially for us in the UK too as it means that Russia will be able to put more supply pressure on their Norwegian competitor, as they both step in to supply the rapidly reducing output from the Dutch gas fields, hopefully leaving more Norwegian gas for us. We might even bite the political bullet and buy more Russian.

    I would say, this is a great deal, where all parts are happy. Russia is happy as it sell more expensive LNG to Lithuania. US is happy to make some extra profit with selling Russian LNG to Lithuania. And Lithuania is happy as they buy Russian LNG from US for far higher price, as it have now some molecules of freedom from US inside.

    A key section of the trans-Banderastan gas pipeline has exploded. Ukr slime is already accusing Russia.

    The timing is interesting. When it becomes clear that Bidet will take over we have this incident. If Russia
    wanted to sabotage the pipeline through Banderastan, then it would have had years and years to do this
    and would not have to wait until the final small step of NS II construction is about to be launched.

    So it is clear that this is a Kiev regime diversion designed to stoke anti-Russian hysteria to sabotage
    NS II. The Kiev regime is emboldened by the restoration of full imperial power in the USA.

    Correct

    They are trying yet another Hail Mary pass but the problem is that it's Euros who will be stuck without a gas again (in the middle of the winter) and Germans will have yet another argument in favor of NS2

    Enjoy the show

    Ukraine was already abandoned for the most part.

    You and I both know every incident that happens in Ukraine for the last decade has been Russia's fault according to them. That hasn't resulted in anything.

    All this drivel about Ukraine blaming Russia for this or that to do this or that is boring as fucking shit. Getting sick of it tbh.

    Maybe, maybe not. The timing and the associated propaganda indicates it was orchestrated by the Kiev regime.

    There have been several such incidents already over the last few years. I don't recall any anti-Russian hysteria
    being generated over them.

    People in the west have been weened from birth on an endless stream of BS about how poor Russians are both financially
    and intellectually.   When Russians hear westerners describe life in Russia, they cannot help but cringe at the inanity.
    The western propaganda is so cheesy, it covers the consumer with cheese drippings.

    got plenty of vacation time to spend in the great outdoors.   We were not rich by western standards, but we
    were vastly better off than western poor.   And nobody in my family was a member of the Communist Party.

    The real poverty appeared under the comprador regime of "palpable humanitarian" Yeltsin.  That is why Russians
    can see western BS for what it is.   Navalny's western handlers think that him drivelling on and on about how
    the Yeltsin era was the golden era is a great propaganda ploy, but to Russians it is intellectually insulting
    retardation.  

    The west utterly failed to win hearts and minds in Russia.  It tried to turn Russia into a 3rd world colony and
    Russians won't forget.

    The World's Most Controversial Pipeline Project Enters Its Final Phase

    by Tyler Durden

    It took more than a year to break the Nord Stream 2 stalemate and now - amidst the world expecting full-scale coronavirus vaccination, amidst the United States expecting the inauguration of President-elect Biden and Europe preoccupied with the future of the EU-UK cooperation rather than energy issues – Gazprom has restarted pipelaying operations on the Nord Stream 2 pipeline. The Fortuna pipelaying vessel has finished working on the NS2 section in Germany’s exclusive economic zone (EEZ) and now it is only the Danish EEZ that remains to be laid. Coincidence or by some unfathomable design, it is exactly now that the next round of US sanctions goes into effect, indicating that the pipeline’s endgame will take place in the upcoming 3-4 months. Gazprom took quite some time to fully prepare itself for the pipelaying, almost a year has passed since Allseas ceased all operations out of concern for potential US retaliation and the Fortuna vessel started pipelaying in Germany’s EEZ. Such a massive timespan has left many analysts wondering how exactly would the Russian side opt to finish the pipeline and most of them, betting on Akademik Cherskiy, had been caught wrong. Fortuna started its operations off the Adlergrund shoal on December 11 and it took the vessel 17 days to complete both parallel strings (the 55 bcm per year throughput capacity is split between two strings the capacity of both which stands at 27.5 cm per year) of the German section, implying that the average pipelaying speed was much lower than the 1-1.5km per day initially assumed by industry watchers.

    There have been very few offshore pipeline projects, if any, that had such a plethora of pipelaying vessel and supporting tugs appearing and disappearing, involved directly in pipelaying or acting merely as smoke and mirrors. Ever since Allseas stopped its pipelaying works in December 2019, the Akademik Cherskiy vessel was the prime candidate to carry on where the Swiss company has stalled – for this she circumnavigated half the planet, moving from Nakhodka in Russia’s Far East around the Cape of Good Hope to the Baltic Sea. Akademik Cherskiy, however, was inactive throughout pipelaying operations in Germany’s EEZ. Moreover, Cherskiy sits idle quite a distance from Germany, off Russia’s Kaliningrad region, accompanied by a couple of anchor-handling tugs, Artemis Offshore and Errie.

    Confounding the Gazprom-owned pipeline’s opponents even further, the ownership structure of the Fortuna vessel has become even more untraceable as she was sold resold again in mid-December, this time to a completely unknown company called KVT-RUS. Crudely put, all the pertinent vessels that are active in pipelaying operations on Nord Stream-2 or merely have been linked to its construction have been sold away from Gazprom amidst the looming threat of US sanctions. Speaking of supply vessels, there are at least half a dozen others scattered across the Baltic Sea. In and around Kaliningrad at least 3 vessels have been biding their time – the vessels Ostap Sheremeta, Yasniy and Vengeri were all linked to Nord Stream-2 at some point. Another anchor handling tug vessel, Ivan Sidorenko, has been moving somewhere in the Baltic Sea with its transponders switched off in mid-December, only to resurface in Mukran and then in Kaliningrad by the end of the same month.

    Russian media reports state that Fortuna would start pipe-laying in Danish territorial waters from January 15, 2021, providing no specific date for the completion of works. There remain some 120km to be laid in Danish territorial waters, however, laying the pipelines in the middle of winter has always been the least preferable scenario for Gazprom given the difficult weather conditions that could slow down Fortuna’s assumed 1.5 km per day nominal speed. Therefore, it would be unreasonable to expect the completion of pipelaying works before April-May 2021. Generally speaking, Gazprom has two years left to conclude the construction of Nord Stream 2 before its transit agreement with Ukraine’s Naftogaz runs out and confronts the two companies (and two nations) once again in another round of a Russo-Ukrainian gas standoff.

    An immutable aspect of Nord Stream-2 is the United States’ ever-tightening sanctions regime. Despite President Trump’s veto of the National Defense Authorization Act of which the Nord Stream-relevant sanctions formed part, the US Congress overrode his decision, thus activating a new round of targeted sanctions from December 29 onwards. From now on, any entity, be it Russian or European, that helps build Nord Stream 2, provides retrofitting and upgrading services to vessels participating in the project, or provides insurance and/or underwriting might be subject to sanctions. Though the new sanctions package provides for a 30-day wind-down period, most European companies providing a technical assessment of Nord Stream-2 will cease any sort of cooperation with the pipe-laying vessels and Gazprom as the coordinator of its construction.

    The European Union has so far refrained from robust political steps vis-à-vis the US Administration against what it perceives to be meddling in its internal affairs, however, the cohesion of the European block seems to have solidified over the course of 2020 and will fortify even more with Britain’s departure. Lack of progress on the Ukrainian dossier and Alexei Navalny’s poisoning notwithstanding, virtually the entirety of Germany’s financial leaders continue to support the project, stating that canceling Nord Stream-2 would not only hurt European customers and consumers but would also damage the financial standing of the top oil and gas majors involved in the project. Against such a geopolitical landscape, the US should find an elegant way to avoid acknowledging the failure of its multi-step sanctions-tightening.

    Russians who are old enough to know yeltsins years know it's an insult. But younger generation who didn't live through that don't know and don't understand.

    It should be taught in schools in Russian social studies class that the Yeltsin years was one of the worst for Russians in its history.
