KW: In the desperate war against Russia and China using sanctions as the weapon at this point in time the U.S. is losing the fight against sound logic and the right of individual countries’ governments to govern the way they see is best for the people they represent. Although Gazprom has a past littered with bad oligarch influence it is proceeding unrestrained carrying smaller players along with it. The U.s expessed outrage that Germany and other european countries would be beholden to Putin for their gas supply but you can bet that Putin doesn’t go around sanctioning corporations to get its own way like the U.S. does.
Russia’s $10 billion Nord Stream 2 pipeline – which will pump gas more than 1,200 km to Germany – has been sanctioned by Washington, with US officials claiming Moscow can’t finish the project. “Never say never,” Gazprom replied.
