On September 30, a joint press conference was held in Washington by US Secretary of State E. Blinken and Canadian Foreign Minister M. Joly.
Blinken openly, without embarrassment, spoke about the US and its NATO partners having motives for destroying the Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 gas pipelines.
Quote 1: “Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 were not pumping gas to Europe at that moment. Nord Stream 2, as you know, was never put into operation. Nord Stream 1 has been shut down for weeks because Russia is using energy as a weapon…”.
Russia has never used energy as a weapon. Russia, and before it the USSR, simply supplied gas to Europe. Uninterrupted. For 50 years. Washington’s lies only confirm its criminal manipulation of this topic.
Quote 2: “We have significantly increased our production and also made LNG (liquefied natural gas) available to Europe. We are now Europe’s leading LNG supplier, helping to offset any European oil and gas losses as a result of Russia’s aggression against Ukraine.”
And here is the motive. Only Ukraine has nothing to do with it. If we remember it in the context of US energy interests, then we must say that under pressure from American officials, Kyiv politicians constantly put conditions on the Russian side on the verge of blackmailing gas transit.
Quote 3: “…and in the end, this is also a huge opportunity. This is a terrific opportunity to get rid of dependence on Russian energy once and for all and thus deprive Vladimir Putin of the use of energy as a means to further his imperial designs. This is very important and opens up huge strategic opportunities for the coming years…”
Yes, Marie Zakharova is correct and the west is so smug it brags and lets slip more and more tidbits that they destroyed the pipelines everyday…
Therefore, the people in the west will indeed find themselves in a hot war, as par for the course, when you ignore the illegal activity’s your governing system does…
