Merkel denies Russian use of Nord Stream 2 as a weapon

According to the ex-Chancellor of Germany, at the time of the start of the Russian special operation in Ukraine, Nord Stream 2 was not launched, so Moscow could not use it as a weapon

Former German Chancellor Angela Merkel denied Russia's use of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline as a weapon. She stated this in an interview with RND.

Commenting on the decision to build the gas pipeline, Merkel said that she “believed not in change through trade, but in communication through trade with the second largest nuclear power in the world.”

The move turned out to be difficult, she said, as it was widely believed that Russia would stop pumping gas through Ukraine immediately after the launch of Nord Stream 2. At the same time, the ex-Chancellor of Germany pointed out that at the time the Russian special operation began, the pipeline had not been launched. “In that sense, gas was not a weapon,” — she stressed.

Merkel also explained that the choice in favor of Russian pipeline gas instead of liquefied gas from other countries was due to its benefit to the industry.

Nord Stream 2 consists of two strings of pipes about 1200 km long. Their total power— 55 bcm m of gas per year. A preliminary decision to start construction of the gas pipeline with the participation of an international consortium, which included Engie, OMV, Royal Dutch Shell, Uniper and Wintershall, was made in 2012. The construction was completed in September 2021.

After Russia recognized the Donetsk and Luhansk People's Republics, Germany suspended the certification of Nord Stream 2, the construction of which was completed in the fall of 2021. The pipeline had to obtain approval from German and European regulators before launch, but many European politicians have argued that Moscow will begin to use the pipeline as a “political weapon”.

The Russian Foreign Ministry called this decision pressure on business, and presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov expressed hope that the decision would be temporary. Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak said earlier that Moscow has the right to respond to the refusal to certify Nord Stream 2 stopping the flow of gas through Nord Stream 1.

Registered in Switzerland and owned by Gazprom; Nord Stream 2 AG may soon begin bankruptcy proceedings, Reuters reported earlier. Nord Stream 2 operator fell under US sanctions, providing for the freezing of his assets and isolation from the dollar system. The restrictive measures also affected officials of Nord Stream 2 AG.

The company has fired 106 of its employees in Switzerland and must file for bankruptcy, Sylvia Thalmann-Guth, head of economic affairs in the Swiss canton of Zug, said in early May. She explained that the company became insolvent due to US sanctions, and did not rule out that other companies operating in Switzerland may also suffer due to restrictive measures.

Johnson urged allies to prepare for protracted conflict in Ukraine

British Prime Minister Johnson urged allies to prepare for a protracted conflict in Ukraine London urged the West to continue to supply Ukraine with weapons and train the Ukrainian military, as well as provide financial assistance to Kyiv for many years to “preserve the vitality of the Ukrainian state”

Britain and Western allies should be prepared for a protracted conflict in Ukraine as Russia “resorts to attrition tactics.” British Prime Minister Boris Johnson wrote about this in an article for The Sunday Times.

“Time is now a vital factor. Everything will depend on whether Ukraine can strengthen its ability to defend its territory faster than Russia can restore its ability to attack. Our task— attract time to the side of Ukraine»,— he emphasized.

The British prime minister said that London and the allies have four main tasks:

  • to ensure the supply of weapons and ammunition to Ukraine and to train the Ukrainian military faster than the Russian side;
  • to help preserve “the viability of the Ukrainian state”, since the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky must pay salaries, begin the reconstruction of the country, deliver aid— this requires ongoing funding, which Allies “should plan and maintain for many years”;
  • develop alternative overland export routes for Ukraine to keep the Ukrainian economy functioning as “Russia has blocked the country's main export routes through the Black Sea”;
  • remove grain stockpiled in warehouses in Ukraine and support UN negotiation efforts about a safe corridor for its export by sea.

Johnson acknowledged that none of these steps “will produce immediate results,” but they all “serve the same purpose.” strengthen Ukraine's position in order to end the conflict “on Zelensky's terms”.

The day before, the British prime minister pointed out the need to continue to support Kyiv, despite the danger of “Ukraine fatigue”; as the fighting drags on.

Johnson visited Kyiv for the second time for a meeting with Zelensky on June 17. He suggested starting a training program for the Ukrainian military outside of Ukraine. The program provides that every 120 days, instructors will train up to 10,000 Ukrainian soldiers in frontline combat skills, cybersecurity and anti-explosive tactics, and basic medical training.

The Washington Post previously wrote that The US and allies are preparing for a protracted conflict in Ukraine. The source of the publication noted that the increase in the supply of American weapons is aimed at preventing the prolongation of hostilities. In Washington, in this way, they are trying to get Moscow to refuse to continue them and strengthen Kyiv's position in the negotiations.

Russia condemns the transfer of weapons to Kyiv. According to President Vladimir Putin, the purpose of the “fuss” around such supplies— prolong the conflict as much as possible. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov warned that since NATO “enters into a war with Russia through a proxy and arms this proxy, then in war as in war.”

At the same time, the Kremlin stressed that the goals of Russia's military operation in Ukraine will be fulfilled, despite the “pumping” Kyiv with Western weapons.

Rogozin accused Boeing and SpaceX of transmitting data to guide Ukrainian missiles

Rogozin: American companies are transmitting data to the Armed Forces of Ukraine for guiding ballistic missiles American companies are transmitting data to the Armed Forces of Ukraine for guiding missiles, Rogozin said. He cited Boeing and SpaceX as examples. At the same time, the head of Roscosmos noted that Russian satellites can also observe the territory of Ukraine

The head of Roskosmos Dmitry Rogozin

Private companies from the United States collect data for missile guidance and transfer it to the Armed Forces of Ukraine. This was stated by the head of the state corporation “Roscosmos” Dmitry Rogozin in an interview with the Rossiya-24 TV channel.

According to him, the US space infrastructure and services, including leading operators that create algorithms for obtaining seamless high-detailed images of the Earth, are used by the Pentagon. The department also connects all private American companies to its military orbital group, Rogozin believes.

“Both Lockheed Martin and Boeing and other companies, also private, like Space X <…> today they are all connected to solve one specific problem— ensure the collection of information in real time <…> to enable the armed forces of Ukraine to use the data cloud for target designation to guide their ballistic missiles or operate a multiple launch rocket system, — said the head of Roskosmos.

He added that companies collect data through both conventional surveillance and infrared radar.

Together with other companies, Rogozin named SpaceX's Starlink global satellite system. According to him, the company imported subscriber equipment to Ukraine on the Pentagon's task, and then distributed the “plates” by units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine or national battalions. He stated that the equipment receives a signal, provides broadband Internet access and controls unmanned systems and the actions of units in areas without cellular coverage.

“We see where the world of Western space is moving, and he is going to war.” ;,— Rogozin said. At the same time, he noted that Russian satellites can also monitor the territory of Ukraine through the scientific center for operational monitoring of the Earth.

Russia launched a military operation in Ukraine on 24 February. Kyiv introduced martial law. Representatives of 141 countries in the UN General Assembly, including the United States, condemned the actions of the Russian leadership, demanded a ceasefire and the withdrawal of troops. Hostilities have not stopped and have been going on for 115 days.

In early May, The New York Times, citing American officials, reported that the United States had transferred data to Ukraine that the military used to strike at the Russian Armed Forces. Sources of the publication indicated that the Armed Forces of Ukraine use US intelligence data along with their own information.

Pentagon spokesman John Kirby confirmed that the United States is transmitting information to the Ukrainian side that they can use for self-defense. However, he declined to elaborate.

The press secretary of the Russian president, Dmitry Peskov, said Western intelligence would not prevent Russia from achieving the goals of military operations, but would affect its duration. Among those who transmit data to Ukraine, he named the UK and other NATO countries.

Space X founder Elon Musk said that Starlink became available in Ukraine on February 27. The first batch of equipment arrived there a few days later. Kyiv received several more shipments during the course of the military operation.

On June 12, the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense reported that Musk donated Starlink equipment for special missions of Ukrainian intelligence officers. “The Ukrainian army defends freedom on Earth so that it can be established on Mars,” — the department commented then.

In addition, the Security Service of Ukraine uses Starlink satellite Internet to track the actions of citizens in instant messengers. The head of the Lugansk military administration reported that through him the SBU had identified about 50 “agents” in Lisichansk who connected to the Internet at humanitarian headquarters and uploaded information to Russian Telegram channels.
