    Default Germany warns 'high price to pay' over Ukraine – gas pipeline to be cut

    .
    Have the Germans finally woken up?

    New German Chancellor Olaf Scholz suggested on Tuesday that Berlin might take a tougher line on the Kremlin as fears that Moscow may launch an invasion on Ukraine continue to grow. Mr Sholz met with NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg to discuss the build-up of Russian troops at the Ukraine-Russia border. The German leader has backed calls for sanctions to be slapped on the controversial gas pipeline Nord Stream 2, but now his oppostition to the project appears to be growing stronger.

    Shockingly enough the Empire is not particularly opposed to massive European energy shortages.

    Maybe the stupid buggers will wake up and keep the remaining three nuclear plants operating? It's Merkel's crazy Energiewende policy that has caused this to happen. Isn't it ironic that Putin, who hates fracking, may now cause the Germans to start exploring their shale gas deposits.

    Ok, let me try to help you. Cut in this instance means that the pipeline contract will be terminated and the pipeline may never go into service. Alles klar jetzt?

    Putin unleashes fury as Germany BANS Russian gas and signs deal with Ukraine instead

    VLADIMIR PUTIN has unleashed fury after Germany signed an energy deal with Ukraine and suggested that it will block the Nord Stream 2 pipeline over Russian aggression in the region.

    It's often said that Russia won WW2, which is true to an extent. It is also true that the war wouldn't have started without the Molotov-Ribbentrop Treaty.
