In Germany, the condition for rejecting the court’s decision on the “Nord Stream-2” was called

German political scientist Alexander Rahr doubted the viability of the court’s decision in Dusseldorf not to withdraw “Nord stream-2” from the EU gas directive.

In his opinion, these requirements for the pipeline will be waived if necessary, for example, in the conditions of the upcoming cold winter.

“I assure you that in the event of a really severe winter, everyone will forget about these directives, they will make any compromise regarding gas pumping,” Rahr said.

The expert also drew attention to the risk of failure of the morally and physically outdated Ukrainian GTS.

“Then both the “Nord Streams” — the first and the second – will be a salvation for Europe. <…> When Europe needs large volumes of gas, it begins to buy it convulsively, quickly forgetting about its restrictions,” the political scientist suggested.

Rahr called the action of the EU gas directive an instrument of discrimination, since in recent years it has been reworked under pressure from Russia’s opponents.

Earlier, the Supreme Land Court in Dusseldorf rejected the complaint of Nord Stream 2 AG, the operator of “Nord stream-2,” against the decision of the German regulator not to withdraw the project from the updated regulations. They state that the pipeline entering the territory of the European Union is either partially filled by an alternative supplier, or its fragment on the territory of the EU must belong to a third-party company.
