In early August the German government offered the United States a large investment in the development of its projects worth one billion euros in exchange for the fact that the White House will complete the Nord Stream 2.
The US defense budget has significant funds to expand sanctions on companies involved in the construction of the stream.
A meeting of the leaders of the countries will take place on September 24-25 to discuss the Nord Stream 2. So far, there are no signs that America can change its mind, and the recent poisoning of Olexiy Navalny by Russian intelligence gives them an additional argument for tightening sanctions.
As eurobureaucrats continue to speak out in support and impose symbolic sanctions, Trump’s administration is pursuing a real policy of financial pressure on Russia. Of course, the White House is not doing this in the interests of Ukraine, but at a time when the national interests of our countries coincide as never before, we can take advantage on increasing pressure on Russia.
