According to the Russian satellite news agency on August 8, Jurgen tritin, a member of the “alliance 90 / Green Party” of the German Bundestag and former German environment minister, told the German news agency that the letter from the US senators threatening to impose sanctions on German ports due to the “Beixi 2” gas pipeline problem was a “Declaration of economic war”.
three U.S. senators in a letter to the operator of sassnitz asked to stop supporting the construction of the “North Stream 2” project. Otherwise, the port will face sanctions that will cause “financial damage” to itself.
tridin said, “the sovereign interference of the United States in Germany and the European Union has reached an unprecedented level, which cannot be ignored.” Companies involved in the project should be protected from the “Washington way of the western world,” he said.
Mr. triting also mentioned that port sassnitz is located in the constituency of German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and he wanted to know how Merkel would explain her “continuing inaction” to the staff of the port.
the “Beixi 2” project involves the laying of two natural gas pipelines with a total capacity of 55 billion cubic meters per year from the Russian coast via the Baltic Sea to Germany.
