The more I read and watch about President Putin ( Note the respect Mr P- I dont fancy a poisoning!) I believe more than ever its best to be on reasonable terms with Russia- obviously impossible if they're invading your country but sadly in geo politics amongst the big players ....,

So you actually believe this get together is about containing Russia.......
It has been clearly stated for anyone whose native language is English - or have you still not read the article?
I’d like to know how, because they’ve failed up till this moment in time,
Unsurprising, nobody has succeeded in resolving conflict through negotiation - Putin needs a war.
if anything the US and Germany have conceded to Russia.
Not so sure about the US but Germany & France will probably do so again.

Meanwhile does anyone have news of HMS Defenders whereabouts?

🔵 “Europe’s Chances of Dodging Winter Gas Crunch Hang on Russia,” Bloomberg writes in a piece based on industry analyst interviews. “Much is going to depend upon Nord Steam 2,” said Massimo Di-Odoardo, vice president of global gas at Wood Mackenzie Ltd, tells Bloomberg. “If Nord Stream 2 doesn’t come on stream and Russia continues not to book capacity through Ukraine, then clearly there might be a risk of price spikes. I doubt we will have blackouts, but certainly the winter looks quite tight at the moment.”

🔵 US Secretary of State Antony Blinken described the Nordstream 2 gas pipeline Wednesday as a Russian geopolitical project that undermines the security of Ukraine, adding the United States wants to ensure Russia does not use energy as a coercive tool against any European state, Reuters reports from Berlin. Speaking at a joint press conference with his German counterpart, Heiko Maas, Blinken said: “Our goal remains to ensure that Russia cannot use energy as a coercive tool as a weapon against Ukraine, or anyone else in Europe.”

🔵 Sanctions can stop certification of Nord Stream 2 and sanctions can prevent companies from buying the gas, Yuriy Vitrenko, Naftogaz CEO, tells Interfax-Ukraine in an interview. “The United States can ensure that certification does not take place,” he said. “For this gas pipeline to work, much more is needed: to have companies that book capacity, for someone to buy gas that goes through this pipeline. And all this can also be subject to appropriate sanctions from the United States.”

I think it’s Merkel he needs to talk to, not Johnson.

🔵 With Europe facing a 25% cut in pipeline gas from Russia in July, Gazprom yesterday refused Ukraine’s offer to ship 50% more Russian gas to the EU in July.

Two Russian pipelines – Nord Stream 1 and Yamal-Europe – are to undergo maintenance in July, reducing flows from Russia by 2.2 billion cubic meters. With these scheduled shutdowns in mind, Ukraine’s Gas Transmission System Operator offered to increase daily transit by 51%, to 188 million cubic meters.

🔵 News that Gazprom spurned Ukraine’s offer pushed Europe gas prices yesterday over $400/1,000 cubic meters, the highest level in over a decade.

Facing high prices, Ukraine is delaying filling its storage reservoirs for this winter. Ukraine has 16 billion cubic meters in storage, 18% below the level of this time last year, Naftogaz reports. Interfax-Ukraine has warned: “The injection of gas into underground storage facilities is at a minimum, which leaves no doubt that Europe will meet the new winter with half-empty underground storage facilities.”

🔵 July will be the third month that Gazprom holds back on shipping more gas volumes through Ukraine.
Analysts have concluded that Gazprom is working to raise European gas prices and to build support for the Nord Stream 2 pipeline. A sizeable number of US congressional representatives seek to impose sanctions to prevent this Russia-Germany gas line from opening in the fall.

Get over it, Germany are now out of the Euros & now they’re chanting, “Nord Stream Two is coming home”.

So your alternative is what.....Europe has been relying on Russian gas for decades & will continue to do so.
And will continue to be under threat from Russia.

Plenty of alternatives available but will take time and big money to realise.

That’s the problem, there isn’t time and the alternatives are a long way off.
If this had been a smaller country than Russia, the US would’ve invaded to get the gas and oil IMO.
Gas is imperative to Germany’s industry, can’t image how they would survive without Russian gas.
I think everyone is aware that Ukraine has been used by Russia, US and the EU.
