A lot of comparisons to Budapest memorandum in Ukraine as US&Germany prepare to present a #NorthStream2 deal. Back in 1994, Ukraine gave up its nuclear weapons in exchange of vague security guarantees by the UK and US. When Russia invaded in 2014, the West said it was non-binding
Ukraine has been resisting Russian aggression for 7 years. 14,000 people died. Now, it feels like the West is letting it down again by rewarding Russia with a pipeline which not only deprives Ukraine of transit fees, but poses a huge security risk. ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ will use it as a weapon
After Germany's reluctance to support Ukraine's NATO/EU ambitions and refusal to provide it with defensive weapons, Kyiv understandably doesn't trust any kind of a vague deal. 1 bln$ of promised investments in green energy looks like a joke: yearly losses from transit are 1.4 bln

its CEO Matthias Warnig, as having been involved in the construction of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline. They will now be subject to US sanctions, as required by PEESA. Furthermore, 9 vessels will be allocated because they are owned or
operated by the Federal State Budgetary Institution Marine Rescue Service, which was also stated in the report. However, the Secretary of State announced that the sanctions on Mr. Warnig, Nord Stream 2, and its corporate officers will be waived due to national security concerns.

"The plans are a direct threat to legal security in the EU and would lead to US sanctions against dozens of German and European companies," said Oliver Hermes, chairman of the Eastern Committee of German Business.
The new draft law does not only provide for sanctions against companies that provide the ships for laying the pipes. Companies that provide ships for other activities related to the laying work should also be punished.

The prospect is fading that the Nord Stream 2 Baltic Sea pipeline leading from Russia to Germany can be operated as planned.
On Friday, the Federal Network Agency in Bonn rejected an application from Gazprom's subsidiary Nord Stream 2 AG to exempt the project in German territorial waters from the applicable EU regulation. The third gas directive prohibits, among other things,
