Who benefits from interrupting the Russian gas supply (and all energy, trade and commerce) to Europe?

The #USA.

#Russia could have turned off the flow without damaging a very expensive infrastructure. Russian gas to Europe is still flowing.

#NordStreamSabotage

A #fake twitter account attributed to the #Taliban's Ministry for the Propagation of Virtue & Prevention of Vice wrote:
"After that Sheikh Khalid Hanafi, informed the @UNAMAnews representative about the Ministry's activities, he said: There is need for a similar org. in #Europe." ImageImageImage
The same #fake_account with over 14k followers, yesterday under the banner of the #Taliban's ministry of foreign affairs tweeted about removal of #Abas_Stanikzai, from his position as deputy foreign minister. Mentioned fake news was covered by many media outlets.

Similarly, the news about a market for chidren's sell, is a #Fake_News.
#Taliban's spokesman tweeted that the #children in the video are brought for receiving vaccine, not for sale.
Recently, many fake news appear in the Social Media, mainly for propaganda against the TB or NRF. ImageImageImage

It’s about time that world leaders call a conference to bring all parties together in order to end civilian suffering both inside #Ukraine, #Russia, #Europe, and the rest of the world all affected by this conflict. We need brave leaders who can compromise & understand ‘the other’ Image
This conflict is taking a dire turn that doesn’t just threaten Ukrainians and Russians, but all of Europe & potentially the entire world; there is a very real possibility things could spiral into a world war! Seems dramatic? Not really when you consider #NATO and counter NATO.
There will have to be significant compromises and guarantees on all sides. The USA cant pretend they didn’t support a coup d'état in Ukraine in 2014, and that they planned to expand NATO to Russia’s doorstep with 0 consideration for Russia’s security needs, but compromises needed

⚡️Dear subscribers and guests of the channel! Having initiated sabotage on conditionally "his" #Nordstream, #Russian President Vladimir #Putin entered the final stage of gas blackmail, using the penultimate trump card in this case.
1/5
The #EuropeanUnion, from the beginning of the military invasion of #Russian troops in #Ukraine, is ready for such antics by #Putin, and most likely there will be no special proceedings and consequences for the customer of the sabotage.
2/5
But further incidents may follow on gas pipelines "foreign" for #Putin and other critical infrastructure in #Europe. In this case, the fifth article of #NATO may work, and Putin may lose much more than his planned losses of 2% of the mobilization manpower reserve.

The (likely) blowing up of Nordstream pipelines, outside of the Danish island Bornholm, alters the strategic game, in #Europe , in a very dangerous manner.

It also seems obvious, like I warned 👇, that President Putin is playing a "long game". Thread 1/11
mtmalinen.substack.com/p/the-russo-uk…
It's not yet clear who blew the pipelines up, but it opens the possibility of sabotage of other pipelines, especially the Nordic gas infrastructure, which supplies 25% of European gas.

Could this be the strategy?
/2

@AndreasSteno
Russia also plans to sanction Naftogas (Ukraine), which would jeopardize gas flows to Europe and especially to northern Italy.

The likely aim: destabilize already unstable Italy, leaving the country two options: lockdown or strike a deal with Russia.

My take on #NordStream explosions 💥 3 total leaks, 2 on #NS1, 1 on #NS2. Neither CURRENTLY in use to ship gas due to breakdown in relations btwn #Russia & #Europe over #RussiaUkraineWar 1/8
#NordStream leaks are near #Bornholm, #Denmark. 12 nautical miles from international waters, 70 meters deep = dive-able 🤿 2/8
Very hard to imagine that this was an accident, deep sea pipeline leaks are pretty rare. It is likely sabotage. Could be divers, likely not a spy submarine for a variety of reasons #NordStream 3/8

Rest in peace Nord Stream 1.

#Europe is paying the price of decades of colonisation and of being colonised by the #US.

Do we think we are tough enough and allow ourselves to impose whatever sanctions on #Russia? We have a blow in our face and no Russian gas ahead of us.
Which solution is the #US bringing to Europe now? Image
Believe it or not, #Russia still delivering gas to #Europe via #Ukraine, but not for long.

Tu t'aperçois que pour enterrer complètement un problème quelconque, le rendre totalement figé dans la gelée, il suffit de laisser un parti extrême s'en emparer. Exemples:
- Les inégalités. Pour l'extrême-gauche, tant que t'auras pas fusillé les riches, faut pas toucher.
- L'immigration. Pour l'#ExtremeDroite faut placer des gens comme des piquets le long des frontières armés de baïonnettes. Confier une politique raisonnée à l'#Europe, il n'en est pas question
- L'Islamisme. Pour l'#ExtremeGauche, toucher à leurs électeurs c'est de l'Islamophobie
L'écologie. les écologistes n'ont pas cessé de manifester, de brailler, de nous accabler de menaces. Cette discipline a t'elle été confiée à des scientifiques? Ben non elle est l'apanage de l'#Extremegauche qui en a fait une tête de gondole pour désœuvrés de la fac de lettre.

Every few years, desperate #US tries to grab every opportunity to create a storm in a teacup, dreaming about a regime change in #Iran. If one reads the media and knows nothing else, Iran's collapse is within minutes. This is how much Iran is hurting/challenging the US hegemony.
So keep going #USA & Co. under different titles and, before the end of the next week, your pitiful dream will be over.

If the US cares about #Iran, why impose thousands of sanctions since 1979 to hurt the people and be responsible for their suffering?
If these are "demonstrations", why destroy 65 ambulances? 121 Cash distributors? Killing security forces? Destroying government priorities that belong to the people?

Can you do that in the #US or #Europe or any other country in the World?

I have become rather convinced that #WarInUkraine is not going as presented by the western media (Ukrainian propaganda essentially).

This creates massively perplexing and dangerous situation for #Europe and the Nordics.

How to fix it? Thread. 1/7

If my assessment and scenario are correct, we have walked into a 'trap' with with two outcomes:

1. Impaired Europe.
2. Somewhat weakened #Russia with a strategic upper-hand.

Currently, #Europe is heading into an economic and political self-annihilation. 2/
The current policy stance is leading #Europe to de-industrialization, mass unemployment, political chaos and (possibly) destruction of the societal cohesion across the continent.

A very dangerous and fool-hearted path. 🤦3/

In #Europe, scores of places are lowering speed limits to 30 km/h. Almost 200 cities in #France have implemented the measure; traffic deaths in some have decreased by as much as 70 percent.
Meanwhile, Conservative Party in #Quebec campaigns on raising highway speeds to 120 km/h.
More info on the movement in France:

20minutes.fr/bordeaux/32089…
And I'm aware highway/city speed limits are different.
🥱

Just trying to show how tone-deaf this (non-city-tax-paying) would-be politician is.

"We'll always need big diesel trucks in our cities to deliver freight. It's just reality."

Not so fast. The electric "Cargo Tram" has long been a fixture in many cities in #Europe.

🧵🚋
The city of #Karlsruhe uses light-rail vehicles and "tram-trains" to carry consumer goods between city-center hubs, which are then delivered by electric cargo bikes.
TramFret employs old trams to shuttle groceries around in the city of Saint-Etienne, #France.
