Russia shuts Nord Stream 1 gas pipeline to Europe
Russia's Gazprom halted gas supplies via the Nord Stream 1 pipeline citing repair work. How will this shutdown affect Europe's mission to save supplies gas for the winter? Is Putin wng the energy war?
"U dont make holes in the plate in which u eat" It high time Europe learns that...They can't put sanctions and depend on the same country for oil.
The biggest weapon of this war is energy.
Russia invested heavily in Nord Stream 2 and the US forbade Germany to use it before the war 2. German and EU competitiveness relies heavily on cheap fossil fuel use, namely Russian oil and gas 3. The EU introduced free market policies on energy in 2021 forcing states to cut subsidies and dismantle price caps that led to skyrocketing gas prices in the winter of 2021 already!
Be the Best-Live the Best
All these EU leaders seems to be dumb enough to think you can sanction everything Russia and technology and then still continue to ask when they are not supplying you gas? It's like sanctioning a pilot and then ask why the plane is not taking off.
Russia is not even bothering to respond to Europe's concerns. Europe doesn't care less about Russia's concerns, so I'm guessing they no longer care about Europe's concerns. All of this is a great example of the way "not to live" In that regard, the west is an excellent teacher.
Know that Norway will be closing its pipeline next week for maintenance purposes!! Are you going to blame Norway for closing the pipeline???
Crisis can last more than you think.
"yeah well when the next conflict breaks out you wont be able to build pipelines fast enough"
Once Putin was able to sell his gas and get around sanctions and sustain the economy even though it it’s a little painful, why would he sell gas to Europe gas ever again? He was 10 moves ahead
I didn't need a Chrystal Ball to foretell that this was going to happen. The sooner that Germany embraces Nuclear power, the better off things will be. Parts of the UK should think about tidal power.
By saying "Repair Works", Russia meant "Repairing Foreign Relationship" not "Repairing Oil Pipeline".
Alien From Mars
So they want to "punish" Russia by having a gas shortage in their country?
Europe for the past few months said they wanted independence from Russian energy. Pres. Putin is hel to speed up this process. How nice of him!
Also Pres. Trump said Germany is too dependent on Russian energy and they laughed at him. They're not laughing now are they?
As far as I remember, Europe were the first to say that they were going to refuse to buy Russian gas....
Russia just merely help EU to realize just sanction goal.
Putin is hel Europe in their climate goal
No Fuel = No pollution
"For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction." What did EU expect when it blindly followed the US?
OMG! The idiocy of our leaders in Europe is endless...
EU didn't calculate the cost. They sanctioned themselves in the end - it was all self-inflicted.
This is funny, they sanction Russia then cry when it hurts them back
Russia is definitely demonstrating that it has the power to retaliate against the sanctions imposed on it. Sanctions work both ways. Europe will learn the hard way.
You can't blame Russia, sanctions have consequences
You want to sanction Russia and face no consequences?
Whatever America wants, Europe does.
I remember when trump told Europe this would happen and they laughed in his face.
EU Commission and government leaders should be fired en masse from their jobs; they are undeserving of the confidence of their people whom they care so little about.
Putin playing these woke EU leaders for fools and i love it
Europe put itself in the same position as Ukraine. When from cheap gas to no gas
Looool silly Europe
The gas price fell from 339 euro last friday, to 249 euro today. Since gas storage is almost full all over Europe, there's now less panic on the market. This "maintenance" of nordstream 1 didn't really affect the price.
And how is 'energy warfare' worse than economic warfare waged by the west (sanctions)? Can't really blame Russia.
So the sanctions might not have been thought out very well.
India must buy more Oil and Gas at discounted price from Russia.
