    How to Break the Logjam Over Nord Stream 2

    The Russo-German pipeline has zero impact on European security. But Ukraine should be helped.

    By Pierre Noël, a research scholar at Columbia University’s Center on Global Energy Policy, and Chi Kong Chyong, a research associate at the University of Cambridge’s Energy Policy Research Group.

    Since the inauguration of U.S. President Joe Biden, the United States and Germany have been seeking a way out of the deadlock over the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline. The Biden administration has so far managed to avoid triggering a full-blown crisis over the project with Berlin, but further sanctions bills circulating in the U.S. Congress might leave it with no choice. The undersea pipeline from Russia to Germany is nearly completed, and while its commissioning might be delayed, the start of gas deliveries is inevitable—and Washington should acknowledge it. The Biden administration should also reframe the issue, focusing the conversation on the practical implications of Nord Stream 2 instead of attempts to block it. A European strategy, led by Berlin and Paris and supported diplomatically by Washington, can help Central and Eastern Europe, especially Ukraine, adapt to the inevitable decline in their role as gas transit countries.

    Contrary to the claims of the pipeline’s vociferous opponents, Nord Stream 2 will have no implications on European security whatsoever. Germany will not be Finlandized, Ukraine and Central Europe will not be sold to Russia, Russia will not use its gas to strangle Europe, and NATO solidarity will not be compromised. The debate in Washington on Nord Stream 2 fails to acknowledge that Europe has successfully addressed its Russian gas problem by creating an integrated market for gas across the bloc. Natural gas has become a traded commodity across the European Union. Russian gas has competition everywhere, and there is massive spare liquefied natural gas capacity to serve the continent. The Baltic states and Poland will not be impacted at all by Nord Stream 2. They oppose the project out of political solidarity with Ukraine in its confrontation with Russia, not because it threatens their energy security or economic interests. Changing the logistics of Russian gas exports to Europe is strategically benign.

    On the other hand, the only serious risk to European supply security that ever materialized was the disruption of gas transit through Ukraine. In January 2009, Russian gas stopped flowing to Central and Western Europe for two full weeks, after Russia and Ukraine failed to renew their annual contract. It was the largest supply disruption in global gas trade history. Its dominant position in transit gave Ukraine leverage over Russia, which Kyiv used to keep prices low. The arrangement generated increasing tensions with Russia’s state-run Gazprom energy company and created opportunities for political corruption. Removing the Ukrainian transit risk from the Russian-EU gas relationship was a legitimate shared interest of Europe and Russia, advanced via new pipeline projects under the Baltic Sea and Black Sea. Once the new Russo-German link is completed, it will make Europe’s energy supply safer.

    Changing the logistics of Russian gas exports to Europe is strategically benign.

    Nord Stream 2 will have economic implications. It will cost Ukraine in two different ways. First, the Ukrainian gas pipeline company, Gas TSO of Ukraine, will lose substantial revenues from gas transit. Based on the company’s data, we estimate those losses to be between $400 million and $500 million per year from 2021 to 2024. Secondly, as transit volumes decline, the fixed cost of the pipeline infrastructure must be borne by Ukrainian gas consumers. The same logic applies to underutilized infrastructure in Slovakia, Austria, and the Czech Republic, which will also be impacted by lower transit volumes. These additional costs, which we estimate to be approximately $650 million per year, would bring the annual total to some $1.2 billion.

    Ukraine needs to adapt in a way that benefits its economy and advances its energy integration into Europe. Berlin and Paris must take the lead in negotiating an incentive contract with Kyiv that will smooth out the transition to a post-Nord Stream 2 era.

    This new EU-Ukrainian gas strategy should rest on three pillars:

    The first and by far the most important pillar consists of bringing down the Ukrainian gas transmission system’s excessive operating costs. It is vastly oversized. Capacity needs to shrink at least by half and headcount by a factor of four. A lean and efficient pipeline system would benefit the Ukrainian economy via lower gas tariffs and a more reliable supply. If Ukraine were successful in securing some transit business—as we think it will be—it might even make a higher profit than it does today. Finally, a better-administered system would allow Ukraine to offer cheaper and higher-quality services to European energy traders seeking to access large-scale gas storage facilities in western Ukraine.

    Even when Nord Stream 2 is online, Gazprom should still need to ship 20 to 25 billion cubic meters via Ukrainian pipelines each year, according to our estimates. Ukraine could sell Russia baseload capacity at a tariff lower than today’s, with the option to surge volumes at a much higher tariff when the European market is tight. The first part of the arrangement would guarantee a minimum annual payment and discourage Russia from investing in additional pipeline capacity to Europe through the Black Sea. The second part of the agreement would share the profits between Ukraine and Russia whenever the European market is very lucrative.

    Sanctions Won’t Stop Nord Stream 2. Diplomacy Will.

    As part of the strategy, Europe would provide capital for the required investments in modernization through the European Investment Bank or the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development. As an incentive for Ukraine to rapidly modernize its pipeline system, the EU could also offer a cash payment over 10 years, declining year by year. A similar but less generous scheme would help Slovakia and the Czech Republic adjust down the size of their own gas transit infrastructure.

    The second pillar of the strategy would give all importers of Russian gas in the EU the contractual option of having their gas delivered at the Russo-Ukrainian border. The closer Gazprom’s clients are to Ukraine, the more likely they are to opt for this solution, especially as the Ukrainian pipeline system becomes more efficient. Mandating that all customers have a choice of delivery point would generate transit business for Ukraine and support east-west flows in Central Europe.

    The third pillar would promote the use of Ukraine’s substantial underground storage facilities by European gas traders. EU regulation on gas supply security might help. Market players relying on the Nord Stream system—which will have a combined capacity of 110 billion cubic meters per year—could be forced to insure against the risk of disruptions, including by increasing stored gas reserves. Ukraine would be well placed to meet the new demand.

    Kyiv must renounce its strategy of maximum tension and relying on Washington to coerce Berlin, as if Germany were supporting Russia against Ukraine. Because Nord Stream 2 makes sense for Europe and has no adverse strategic implications, Europe must simply help Ukraine adapt to the new situation economically. By holding firm against U.S. pressure, Germany has shown it is serious about Europe’s strategic autonomy. Now it must put it to good use and work with Ukraine on a post-Nord Stream 2 strategy. With such a strategy, the pipeline’s European supporters can facilitate a change in U.S. policy on Nord Stream 2, help Ukraine and other European transit countries, and defuse an unwelcome source of trans-Atlantic tensions.

    The Poles are against NS2 because a) they wanted Yamal-II to be built instead b) they fear Russia will cut them out of the transit fees teat next with a NS3.
    It is not due to solidarity.

    If Russia wants to they could completely bypass Ukraine once NS2 is complete. Of the countries supplied with TurkStream only Hungary hasn't built their connection to it yet. Turkey has increased their capacity of transit further with the completion of the Trans-Anatolian Pipeline and the Trans Adriatic Pipeline was finished just last year. The little amount of gas that needs to transit Ukraine could be moved via LNG from the Yamal field. The only countries in southern europe which have no alternatives are Romania and Moldova. The Ukraine pipelines will in fact only serve Ukraine, Moldavia, and Romania once Hungary connects via the Balkan Stream pipeline to TurkStream.

    But the Russians, unlike other people, do honor contracts. So Ukraine will have at least 5 more years guaranteed transit fees. After that, they will have learn how to live without billions in gas transit fees like everyone else and actually have to work for a living.

    Lots of people keep saying the Russians would cut off Ukraine after their current contract ends but I don't think they will... they actually earn money pumping gas through the pipes, so why would they care if gas goes through Ukraine or not... Russia does not pay transit fees out of its own pocket, it is the countries whose gas passes through the Ukraine that pay the transit fees.

    For Russia piping gas through the Ukraine is only a problem if it gets stolen or blocked, which does cost them money... money in the extra gas they have to send to meet their contracts, and of course penalties for not delivering gas that was contracted to be sent.

    South stream and north stream allows the gas to get through no matter what, but they still make money on gas going through Ukraine so why not pump it through there?

    https://www.rt.com/news/522578-facebook-redfish-rt-ban/

    RT editor-in-chief says she will seek Facebook ban if RT’s Redfish page, removed after anti-fascist post, is not restored

    Margarita Simonyan has lashed out at Facebook for suspending the page of Redfish, RT’s Berlin-based digital content producer. She said she will try to have the social network itself banned if the decision is not reversed.
    Redfish Media's account was suspended on Friday, after its recent post marking the death of Italian fascist dictator Benito Mussolini got flagged for allegedly violating Facebook’s community standards. The US social media giant previously flagged historic images of Holocaust survivors posted by Redfish as breaching standards on “nudity and sexual activity.”

    “It’s not quite clear what this ‘community’ found so insulting. Was it the Mussolini photo, the reference to Holocaust, or the very existence of the Redfish project, which the Western establishment has long been irritated about,” RT editor-in-chief Simonyan said in a social media post.

    "If the page is not back, I promise I will personally be seeking Facebook’s suspension."

    The strike for the upside-down Mussolini photo, which led to the suspension, isn't the only one that the platform issued to Redfish this year. In January, Facebook took down a post that showed historic images of inmates of the Auschwitz death camp taken after its liberation. Redfish posted them to commemorate International Holocaust Day.

    Redfish is an award-winning company producing videos on contemporary issues like social injustice, police brutality and oppression of third-world countries. Its Facebook page had over 830,000 followers at the time of its suspension.

    FaceCrap is a woke-tard toilet. It is a safe space for IQ 75 range imbeciles to not be offended by facts. Using their standards
    every historical image is a violation. Because some retarded may get shocked by seeing a dead body or so-called nudity of
    death camp inmates.

    I am proud to say that I have never used social media (Twatter, FaceCrap, and similar) and never plan to. These outlets attract
    total garbage humans. That the west is pandering to this freak show proves that there is a social engineering agenda. Even
    if Twatter has millions of accounts, that does not outweigh the rest of society. This retard echo chamber is only being used to
    set corporate, academic and government policy because it is a pretext. An engineered pretext.

    Nudity or whatever is just a convenient excuse. The real reason is that Facebook do not want people to spread the truth that could shake the power and interest of the people behind it.

    If you dig the situation deep enough you will see many Facebook account have been disabled using very rubbish and irrelevant excuses, because these people are trying to tell the truth that Facebook and the ones behind it feel threatened.

    The game is rigged from the beginning.

    The problem here is that it is not the game you could refuse to play, if you want to shatter the disinformation and lies that the West have been actively propagating.

    Yes yes because the Russians don't produce their own propaganda, everyone does it.

    Russia does not produce any propaganda... they have no immediate ideological problem with the west... they didn't want to destroy the west... they wanted to join the world community... they wanted to be part of the west... it is the west that has rejected Russia and essentially said we will accept you as a loser of the cold war... you do as we say or you can't join the club.

    Russia has said no thanks on those terms but still has no interest in destroying the west... it seems hell bent on destroying itself anyway.

    RT was supposed to provide an alternative view of Russia so the west could learn a bit about Russia... if it wanted to... without seeing it through the CNN or BBC or ABC or Fox News or whatever filter that distorted everything in a Cold War Sepia.

    Russia does not need to pretend to be the best country in the world or the richest or the nicest... it doesn't make these claims... so all it does is points out when the west makes claims about Russia and itself when they are self evidently wrong.

    Invading Iraq was to save the Iraqi people from a despot... so why did you bypass the cities and secure the oilfields first... they let Iraqis bleed for a very long time, and ignored the wholesale theft and destruction of their history as museums were looted...

    An American senator has accused Russia of using UFOs against the USA.

    Likely the crew of the ship he arrived on were speaking and he thought it sounded like Russian...

    The Swedish defense think tank called SIPRI claims Russian military spending has increased over the last two years and is one of the
    highest in terms of percentage of the GDP, i.e over 4%. But as usual we have games with BS statistics. SIPRI uses the nominal
    exchange rate determined GDP. This creates nonsense such as the shrinking of the Russian GDP measured in rubles relative to the
    income from military hardware sales which remain in "hard currencies" such as dollars. If the PPP GDP is used, then Russia's military
    spending is 1.7% of its GDP and lower than that of the USA and UK and most of NATzO.

    Even if PPP is not used, when measured in terms of dollars spent per capita, Russia accounts for $423, Canada accounts for $603,
    Sweden accounts for $639, and the USA accounts for $2351. Using percentage of nominal GDP is a misleading metric since it
    does not account for the physical needs of the country to defend itself. If Russia was much poorer, then the faggots at SIPRI
    would require it to have a proportionally weaker military. Those would be the wet dreams of the fear mongers at SIPRI and not
    objective analysis.

    Not surprising. They do the opposite for the USA, which has a lot of black budget activity that is not tied to the military but falls within
    the umbrella of security.

    Sweden is also the clown state that has its fake stream media write BS articles about how Russia should disarm itself in the Arctic
    to have better relations with the west. Apparently US military dick waving in the Arctic spanning from ABM boats to "policing"
    the North Sea passage is not a security issue. But Russian responses are all pure, unwarranted aggression.

    Yet many people still believe them. Not because they themselves like the West. But because they have a prejudice and grudge against some nation, and the West managed to exploited that. The West provokes the xenophobic sentiments and historical conflicts between nations, and uses that to manipulate them.

    These xenophobic individuals naively think that they can use the West to counter their "blood enemy" (China, Russia etc etc etc), but they do not know that their actions play right in to the hands of the West.

    Hilarious western masturbation. It's a variant the retarded Covid-19 "preparedness" map. Ad hoc declaration of what is
    good and bad.

    1) The USA is an actual one party state with two wings.

    2) Canada is an authoritarian joke where any majority government has absolute power in both the legislature and via the
    post of Prime Minister. At least in the USA the Congress can be from a nominally opposing wing their one real party. So
    the USA is more democratic than Canada.

    3) Mongolia more democratic than Russia? WTF? Because the west wants to co-opt it as a colony?

    As far as the MSM is concerned, Russia has the whole of NATzO beat hands down in terms of press freedom. The
    west has no mainstream media that is anti-west. Russia has newspapers and a TV news channel, Dozhd, that
    is openly pro-west and pro-NATzO. The presence of alt-media in the west does not prove it is free. The alt-media
    in the west is under corporate censorship attack. Russians have access to all sorts of alt-media that nobody
    is censoring since they reside on western social media, which Russians have access to.

    The west's endless bitching and chirping about human rights and democracy is due to the fact that it has neither
    and wants to foist its colonial ambitions on the planet with fake moral authority. The west always uses human
    rights and democracy as a fig leaf for naked military aggression and invasion as well as the plotting and support
    for coups. For example, Ukraine, where a duly elected government was subverted through NATzO efforts and
    where a neo-Nazi regime the daily violates human rights has been installed.

    The west loves to give itself all sorts of top ranks and prizes for being the guiding light of humanity. It is sad that
    so many people fail to see through this brazen con.

    Looks like there's a propaganda push to subvert Russia China relations. That's what it looks like to me but I guess we'll see.


    Top Russian Submarine Design Bureau Hit By Cyber Attack With Chinese Characteristics

    Russia's Rubin Design Bureau was the target of a cyber attack involving an image file with malicious software embedded inside it via a specific tool that has become a hallmark of multiple entities linked to the Chinese government. The file could have been used to create a backdoor into the networks at Rubin, a prolific designer of submarines and other underwater platforms. Its portfolio includes the ultra-quiet Borei class ballistic missile submarine, the unique Belgorod and Losharik special missions submarines, and the Poseidon nuclear-powered and nuclear-armed ultra-long-range 'doomsday' torpedo, among other work.

    Cybersecurity firm Cybereason first reported on the attack on April 30, 2021, but it's unclear when it was actually carried out. Metadata that the company provided along with its analysis says that the Rich Text Format (RTF) image in question was created in 2007, but the report says that this is almost certainly false and meant to help obfuscate its origins. Other portions of the metadata indicate that it was first accessed earlier in April, but that may just be when Cybereason first opened it up to assess it. It's also not clear if the attack was successful in any way.

    "The initial infection vector is a spear-phishing email addressed to the “respectful general director Igor Vladimirovich [Vilnit]” at the Rubin Design Bureau, a submarine design center from the 'Gidropribor' concern in St. Petersburg, a national research center that designs underwater weapons like submarines," Cybereason's report says. "The email attachment is a malicious RTF document weaponized with a RoyalRoad payload, with content describing a general view of an autonomous underwater vehicle."

    Cyberreason is making the claim.

    Cybereason is a cybersecurity technology company founded in 2012. It is headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts, with additional office locations in London, UK, Tokyo, Japan, and Tel Aviv, Israel.

    In July 2012, Cybereason was founded and incorporated in Delaware, United States by Lior Div, an ex-soldier of Israel's Unit 8200.[1]

    More on that alleged pipeline cyber attack. They are really upping the ante here. No blame assigned so far but when it comes, watch out.

    Update (1828ET): The White House published a fact sheet on its response to the Colonial Pipeline hack:

    The recent cyberattack targeting the Colonial Pipeline has triggered a comprehensive federal response focused on securing critical energy supply chains. President Biden is receiving regular briefings on the incident and has directed agencies across the Federal Government to bring their resources to bear to help alleviate shortages where they are occurring. The Administration is focused on avoiding potential energy supply disruptions to impacted communities, the U.S. military, and other facilities reliant on gasoline, diesel, jet fuel and other refined petroleum products. The Administration is continually assessing the pipeline shutdown's impact on the U.S. fuel supply, as well as what additional actions are available to mitigate the impact of the pipeline's shutdown.

    ... read the rest here.

    Update (1452ET): Emergency declarations have been issued in 17 states and Washington, DC due to fuel shortages stemming from the Colonial Pipeline ransomware attack.

    The emergency declaration covers Alabama, Arkansas, D.C., Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia.

    For sure the US or its minions will attempt cyber attack false flags to further their geopolitical ambitions. The reason that Washington
    and its echo chamber bleat so hard about cyber attack threats is because they are the prime perpetrators of such attacks. The
    usual guilt transfer ploy.

    Right now NATzO is shitting bricks because China has been offended enough to stop playing footsie with the west and get serious
    with support for Russia on the global stage. In my opinion, the western deciders are full of ignorant shit and dismiss Russia by itself
    as "declining" and "a has been" when in reality it is ascending and can mop the floor militarily with NATzO. Most of NATzO is taxpayer
    parasite dead weight. And America is only experienced with fighting 3rd world countries, which manifests itself as their total lack
    of supersonic and hypersonic missile systems, no reactive armour on their tanks and a general half-assed corporate pork guided
    non-achievements such as the F-35. They think that sailing a few carriers near Russia will make it capitulate. But regardless of this
    delusion, China is ruining their big plans for the new global world order that was supposed to set in around the year 2000. We even
    had that moron Fukuyama write the "End of History and the Last Man". But things went off the rails and it is dawning on the deciders
    in the west that they are losing control.

    The only reason that stinkin Blinken is not greenlighting the Kiev regime for the final ethnic cleansing push on the Donbass is because
    there is real uncertainty. The cocky hyperpower ain't so hyper anymore. But this does not mean that these lunatics have accepted
    reality and swallowed their insane ambitions. They are regearing for dirty war on all fronts. I think that the school shooting in Russia
    is not some lone wolf operation. As with other terrorists, there is likely some recruiting going on. That is a skill that these lunatics
    do have.

    An example of outright hate propaganda. Maybe it was the construction company that was responsible. But I would not
    assume this since the architect is 100% responsible for the design and exact material specifications. This glass building
    fetish is a distinctly western phenomenon. Classical style buildings have grotesque glass extensions built and so on.

    Glass is slightly more dense than concrete but there are no rebars in glass. I have seen wire mesh glass used in doors, but
    I have never seen wire mesh used as a type of rebar for gimmicky glass walkways. The whole gimmick is to give the
    user a nice view down. For a 300 meter high span that this long weight reduction is an issue, so thicker glass cannot
    be used and we have a problem already. Then we have the wind induced resonances. It looks like this bridge underwent
    such a resonance (recall the Tacoma narrows bridge collapse induced by Kelvin-Helmholtz instability rolls) and this points
    to a design failure.
