Propaganda Victory: The Real Target of Nord Stream 2
Propaganda professionals are right - repeat any statement
often enough and it becomes the truth. It was brilliantly demonstrated once
again by the lobbying campaign of Nord Stream 2...
55 billion cubic meters of gas
shipped by Nord Stream 2 will replace not coal but the same volume of gas
currently shipped to the same customers via Ukraine and Slovakia.

With Gazpromís Nord Stream 2, Putin Is Getting Ready to
Put the Screws on Europe
There is something Orwellian about the Russian energy
giant Gazpromís Nord Stream 2 pipeline project, which will take natural gas from
Russia to Europe via the Baltic Sea and Germany. The official rationale for the
project is that Europe needs more gas, and this is the best way to get it. Yet
the pipeline, combined with other planned projects, will actually reduce
Russiaís export capacity.

Loss of Ukrainian gas transit does increase the risk of
Looking at the map of the military conflict in Eastern
Ukraine one can note that artillery and small arms were engaged in the vicinity
of the abandoned pipelines but never closer than 80 kilometers from the
operating export pipeline. Therefore, reduction of the volume of Ukrainian gas
transit to zero increases the risk of a large scale invasion of Russian forces

Bulgarian Scapegoat for the Failure of Russian Pipeline
By the end of November 2014, the project had growing
costs, no financing and a major European shareholder stepping out. It was the
end. Whatever was happening with the Bulgarian, Serbian and other land sections
in Europe didnít matter because the most important offshore section got stuck.
The scapegoat is usually the weakest link, so a week later, when Vladimir Putin
announced the termination of South Stream, he put the blame on Bulgaria.

Provisional cost of "Power of Siberia" unaffected by the
reduction of pipeline length
My opinion in Forbes.Ru points out peculiarities of the
reported investment cost of "Power of Siberia". Specifically, the estimated cost
stayed intact when the pipeline length was cut by one third and the installed
compressor capacity was reduced by 7 percent.
