Nord Stream 2 isn't even operational, if people starve and freeze to death it can't be because of it !
Because Russia doesn't export as much as needed, on the other hand, is possible (and is what's happening), proving relying on Russian gas was stupid. But we already knew that, and the Grunen are partly responsible, with their opposition to nuclear power.
First: You have not understood the German democratic system...as it is "democratic"...but this is another story. and I just do not want to explain, why such an election result, why the need to form a "coalition", is just as intended by the "founders" of the Bundesrepublik Deutschland".
Second: Russia has a 100% proven trustworthiness in delivering gas to Germany for half a century. Even in the most worse Cold War times they have NEVER
played with the gas/touched the gas deliveries.
Please note: Germany is the only country in the world with storage of essential goods (wheat, coal, oil for heating, fuel, paper for newsletters, e.g. for 6 month, it is called the "Strategische Reserve". And yes, this includes 6 month for gas stored in hundreds of salt caverns in northern Germany. And if someone asks why...because we are "Germans",.
And here we are already at point "Third".
And if you ask a German: "Yes, it is good, I am fine with it".
And anyone else in the world: "What, 6 month? How much does it cost...no".
Long term safety is a "German Thing" (and interestingly, it is the same for German speaking countries and parts of it as Austria, part of Swiss, northern Italy...), this is different to the rest of the world. This has perhaps to do something with hundreds of years of war, two lost WWs, the first social system in healthcare... and ends perhaps with "self reliance" in Germany/German children, "German playgrounds", Kindergarten (and do not compare the German "Kindergarten" with anything with the same name in US or other countries) and the general philosophy behind it.
Back to "second": Russia is of course not the only one, who is delivering gas to Germany, secured by decades long running contracts and in the meanwhile, it is no problem, to get cheap gas from the whole world. If there is anything, which the world has enough of at the moment, it is gas, together with the whole amount of the cheap black shit, called crude oil.
And just for your information, Nord Stream 2 is not needed in any form and Russia/Putin has sank a high amount of money into it (something around 30 billion $), which they will never see again. There are other contracts, where Russia can not get out, they will never be able to deliver the gas through this Nord Stream 2 pipeline, they will like to. As also the other gas deliveries are bound by contracts. So this is now in best case just a 30 billion $ backup pipeline for Nord Stream 1. Which is of course, best for Germany...and no one else. As German I am fully aware of it...and fully fine with it. You know, this with "third".
If Germany would have stopped/cancelled it from their site, they would have broken contracts, and would have to pay the whole 30 billon penalty,...for the wellbeing of Putiin/Russia. And the supporters of them...
Have a nice day.
