German Chancellery of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, headed by Prime Minister Manuela Schwesig, is in a hurry to apply a tool that would allow to circumvent US sanctions against Russia's Nord Stream 2 project, which is due to take effect in January. This is stated in an article by the German newspaper Bild, which was published under the following headline - "Putin's pipeline “Nord Stream-2.”
To do this, the chancellery plans to create a "Climate Protection Fund of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania" in the coming days. The media outlet considers it to be a trick, because, according to its information, the probable climate fund will soon identify the almost ready Russian gas pipeline as "the most important component for environmental protection in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern", and then it will do everything possible to contribute to the project's completion.
According to the Bild insider, the fund should create a business enterprise, the products, and services that will serve exclusively to complete the Nord Stream-2 project.
This means that German companies facing U.S. sanctions will provide their services to the fund, which, in turn, will redirect them to the goals of the Russian project.
As we reported earlier, Norwegian DNV GL classification society has refused the participate in the Nord Stream 2 project due to the threats of U.S. sanctions.
