Why is Western media silent about the lethal self-destruction of an essential gas jugular vein leading to Germany and Europe? The stopping of Europe-dependent Russian gas supplies to Germany via the Yamal-Europe network is not political or related to the wait for certification of the controversial Nord Stream 2 pipeline, so the Kremlin said on Tuesday, the first day of Winter.
The previous day, it was reported that state-owned giant Gazprom, the system’s operator in Russia and Belarus, had booked no capacity for gas transit on Tuesday. The choice not to export natural gas comes as demand for energy in both Russia and the rest of Europe reaches its winter peak.
Daytime temperatures in Moscow this week are forecast to be below minus 20 degrees Celsius, which is minus four in Fahrenheit.
‘This is an absolutely commercial situation. For the specific reasons, you should ask Gazprom,’ the spokesman explained.
Peskov was asked whether the supply of gas to the rest of Europe was being halted due to the current EU blockade on Nord Stream 2. The pipeline was completed in September and now connects Russia to Germany without passing through any third country. This means that, once it starts operation, gas transit will become less reliant on third parties, thereby lowering the commodity’s price.
However, due to issues with bureaucracy, it is yet to be certified. Some Western officials have accused Moscow of purposefully reducing gas supplies, allegedly forcing the EU to approve the pipeline.
‘There is no connection here,’ Peskov clarified. The Yamal-Europe transnational gas pipeline runs from northwest Siberia to Frankfurt-an-der-Oder in eastern Germany.

Last year, around one-fifth of natural gas sent to Western Europe, went via Belarus. Energy supplies through the system vary based on consumption, including within Russia, which Gazprom prioritises over sending fuel abroad.
On Monday, Kiev (Ukraine) also accused Russia of sending the minimal amount of gas through Ukraine, suggesting that Moscow is trying to blackmail Europe into certifying the currently EU block on Nord Stream 2. Writing on Facebook, the head of Ukraine’s state-owned Gas Transport System said that Russia had broken promises to increase supply to the EU while noting that the contract had been fulfilled.
Michael Walsh, revisionist scholar and observer says the anti-Russian sanctions could lead to World War III. Put in simple terms, for all wars are based on trade, not ideology, the Western Powers want Russia’s gas fields. Putin, by kicking out the Western corporations and retuning his nation’s natural assets to the Russian state denied the West its coveted Russian natural resources. NATO is now preparing to take Russia’s gas fields by force.
‘The enemy aggressor is always pursuing a course of larceny, murder, rapine and barbarism. We are always moving forward with high mission, a destiny imposed by the Deity to regenerate our victims while incidentally capturing their markets, to civilise savage and senile and paranoid peoples while blundering accidentally into their oil wells ((gas fields)’ .
