On Tuesday, Spiegel unofficially reported the suspension of certification by the German Economy Ministry. In the afternoon, this was confirmed by Chancellor Olaf Schultz, reporter Anna Widzyk reports.
Asked the Ministry of Economy to withdraw the supply analysis security report from the Federal Network Agency. This sounds technical, but it is such a necessary step that the pipeline cannot be approved now– said Schulze, citing Widzik.
“These are very difficult days and hours for Europe,” the German chancellor stressed. Nearly 80 years after the end of World War II, we are facing a war in Eastern Europe. Our task is to prevent such a catastrophe, he said, and I once again appeal to Russia for help in this.
About the need to suspend Nord Stream 2 certification I mentioned on Tuesday Government spokesman Peter Mueller and Minister of State Assets Jacek Sassen.
“It is primarily about economic and financial sanctions – it was said not so long ago One of the sanctions being considered is the embargo on financial systems, but Nord Stream 2 can’t either – In this regard, we expect such decisions and announcements to be official as well. The government spokesman said that no one in their right mind could say that this project can continue, because it is additional fuel and cartridges for Vladimir Putin in this geopolitical struggle.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced on Tuesday the “first wave of sanctions” against Russia. He declared that among them are sanctions “on Russia itself, which target as much as possible Russia’s economic interests” and “the economic interests that support the Russian war machine.”
The head of government also suggested that further measures could be imposed in the event of a large-scale invasion. “They will hit Russia hard, and in the event of an invasion, we will do a lot. There is no doubt that if Russian companies are prevented from raising capital in the British financial markets, if we remove the facade from the ownership of the Russian company, real estate, it will begin to hurt.“- pointed out.
