"US-Germany compromise on Nord Stream 2 in exchange for the purchase LNG»
The News that was released a few days ago in all the news bulletins says that «υπογράφτηκε συμφωνία μεταξύ ΗΠΑ και Γερμανίας which stipulates that the US will not object to the completion of the Nord Stream 2 Construction Project ", where is ο δεύτερος αγωγός which will bring gas (55 twice cubic meters per year) directly from Russia to Germany. The construction works of the pipeline, located in 95% of completion, stopped a year ago, near Finland, because they were objected to by American Companies, by order of course of the US Government. The USA through its then president Domalt Trump, had demanded that Germany stop taking gas from Russia and buy American shale liquefied natural gas (LNG). According to the media, he told Merkel literally: "We will not guard your borders and you will give your money to Russia…"
There are many questions about this agreement:
- Why was the agreement with the USA needed to complete a pipeline that does not concern it since it is done between two other countries (Germany and Russia);
- What were the exchanges given by the Germans to achieve the Agreement;
- Why do the Germans want a second gas pipeline when in other EU member states impose to fill wind turbines and photovoltaics; Recall that Germany while talking about "carbonization" the 2050, continues today to inaugurates new lignite plants having in addition at her disposal and 10 gigawatts of Nuclear Power.
The first and third questions are "rhetorical" and everyone answers according to their political point of view. There are two views on the second question. The one that officially came out yesterday and says that the exchange is that Germany will impose sanctions on Russia if it does not continue to financially support Ukraine with gas transit fees. The specific "annoyance" is that "Nord Stream 2 "does not go through Ukraine, bypasses herΑλλά Yes, but Ukraine is a country of transit (transit) of gas from Russia to EU countries and claim that it needs revenues from gas transportation to survive. «Ukraine, which is in deep crisis and plagued by poverty, θα χάσει έσοδα δισεκατομμυρίων εάν η Ρωσία χρησιμοποιήσει μελλοντικά τον Nord Stream 2 in the Baltic Sea. " Ukraine receives from the transit of Russian gas 2 billion dollars a year! Όμως έτσι και αλλιώς αυτή η συμφωνία τελειώνει το 2024.
The second view that has also come out in the media, from German sources, is that "Merkel promised the Americans to build 2 τερματικούς σταθμούς για να υποδεχτεί το Αμερικάνικο Σχιστολιθικό Υγροποιημένο Φυσικό Αέριο (LNG).» 
This is Imperialism! Germany can be the "boss" in the EU and impose the interests of German capital on other countries, but it must not forget that the "big boss" remains the US and the American capital is in command..
As far as our country is concerned, we can all clearly understand the role that the Americans want their own shale liquefied natural gas to play. (LNG) in Europe in relation to the competing Russian Natural Gas coming through the pipelines.
This is the main reason that Kyriakos Mitsotakis announced, not by chance, from the USA, the early against 20 at least years, closure of lignite production. It is servitude, the last point of subordination, the devaluation of popular and national interests for the benefit of foreigners and multinationals. But to be fair, the above agreement, which includes the new agreement for the bases but also the transfer of the ports of Alexandroupolis and Kavala, started with the SYRIZA Government from 2017 even completed 2019 with Mitsotakis. As expected in this "Plan", American import LNG, they entered (let them do it anyway) and the other Balkan and European countries that are subject to the US. Bulgaria was the first to sign, then Northern Macedonia and then Romania, Moldova, Ukraine etc.
Any political analysis (and there are too many) as to the reasons for the so-called de-ligation does not take into account this parameter is simply unrealistic.
Our country has been chosen by the USA to become the gateway to the American LNG in Europe. This will be done through the Floating Gas Storage Unit (FSRU) which is being prepared in Alexandroupolis and the Underground Gas Storage (ΥΑΦΑ) which is already ready in Kavala. From there, with ducts, will be channeled to Northern Greece, in the Balkans and other countries in Europe and Asia.
For Southern Greece there is the I was screaming (the reservoir island) through "virtual pipelines" (ships tanks) will supply all the Aegean islands because there is a decision to replace all the Petroleum Power Plants with new ones and they will have fuel, necessarily, the LNG.
The Americans are sweeping into Europe's electricity and completely into our country basically with Liquefied Gas but also in general. Many American Companies are already here building projects in the Electricity sector and especially in RES. THE General Electric well-known American multinational entered slowly but very "dynamically" in the installation of RES variables in Greece. He already has it 3,6% of our Chlora Windmills and has obtained the "required" permits to "level the Vermio" with 80 wind turbines of total power Approx 400 MW.
