Biden National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan gave a very deceitful answer to a question about Biden-Blinken waiving sanctions against Nord Stream 2 pipeline and its CEO. He referred to the CEO of Nord Stream as “a German individual” and Nord Stream 2, owned by Russia’s Gazprom, as “a Swiss company”. (See ca 4 minutes: https://youtu.be/OWkit5zeK3g ). Gazprom is majority Russian government owned. Permit requests for the pipeline actually started in 2012, during the Obama-Biden administration.
Nord Stream 2 is a Russian government owned and controlled (Gazprom subsidiary) company registered in Zug, Switzerland, so Sullivan says that they waived the sanctions on a Swiss company. Zug is well known for postal box companies. Here is the registration: https://www.zefix.ch/en/search/entity/list/firm/1229955
Sullivan’s gall is appalling.
He refers to Nord Stream’s CEO – former East German Stasi spy and friend of Putin from his KGB days – Matthias Warnig as “a German individual”. Yes, he’s a German, but Putin worked for the KGB in East Germany, and even had a Stasi card. The Stasi specialized in gaslighting people and destroying their careers and lives. Did Sullivan get special Stasi training?
Putin’s Stasi card.
Sullivan also fails to state that the Swiss company, that they waived sanctions on, is the Nord Stream 2 pipeline company, itself, and that the German that they waived sanctions on in its CEO.
German Chancellor Merkel is also East German and some believe that she worked for the Stasi, too.
German corporations, as well as French, Austrian, British-Dutch corporations are involved in financing Nord Stream 2, and German corporations are involved in the Russian gas field, as well. However, Russia maintains control of Nord Stream 2 and of the gas field.
“So I said, Angela [Merkel], so we defend you against Russia and you pay billions of dollars to Russia. How does that work?” Trump, 9-21-20, ca 21 min: https://www.bitchute.com/video/LXlaBHDYtU7d/.
Chancellor Merkel- East German Stasi:
Merkel was born and lived in communist East Germany until age 35. Putin was a 37 year old, living in East Germany, when the Berlin Wall fell.
Although the Soviet Union (Union of Soviet Socialist Republics) cut deals and a non-aggression pact with the Nazis (National Socialists), they switched to the Allied side, toward the end of World War II, after they were doubled-crossed by Hitler.
According to former German Transport Minister Günther Krause who was a former colleague of German Chancellor Merkel, who worked with Merkel in the (Communist) German Democratic Republic (GDR) and who served with her in Helmut Kohl’s government in the early 1990s: “With Agitation and Propaganda you’re responsible for brainwashing in the sense of Marxism. That was her task and that wasn’t cultural work…” https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Das_erste_Leben_der_Angela_M.

Nord Stream 2 signed financing agreements with (French government owned) ENGIE, (Austrian) OMV, (British Dutch) Shell, and German Uniper and majority German Wintershall Dea. See: https://archive.is/eZv1x
1/3rd of Wintershall is owned by Ukrainian born, Russian oligarch, Mikhail Friedman’s LetterOne.
Gazprom is majority Russian government owned: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gazprom The Bank of New York Mellon deals in some of its American stock shares (issues American depositary receipts (ADR).
ENGIE is largely French government owned; OMV is an Austrian company
Shell is British Dutch: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_Dutch_Shell

“Nord Stream 2
In 2011, Nord Stream AG started evaluation of an expansion project consisting of two additional lines (later named Nord Stream 2) to increase the annual capacity up to 110 billion m3 (3.9 trillion cu ft). In August 2012, Nord Stream AG applied to the Finnish and Estonian governments for route studies in their underwater exclusive economic zones for the third and fourth lines. It was considered to route the additional pipelines to the United Kingdom but this plan was abandoned.
In January 2015, it was announced that the expansion project was put on hold since the existing lines were running at only half capacity due to EU restrictions on Gazprom.
In June 2015, an agreement to build Nord Stream 2 was signed between Gazprom, Royal Dutch Shell, E.ON, OMV, and Engie. As the creation of a joint venture was blocked by Poland, on 24 April 2017, Uniper, Wintershall, Engie, OMV and Royal Dutch Shell signed a financing agreement with Nord Stream 2 AG, a subsidiary of Gazprom responsible for the development of the Nord Stream 2 project.
On 31 January 2018, Germany granted Nord Stream 2 a permit for construction and operation in German waters and landfall areas near Lubmin. In May 2018 construction started at the Greifswald end point.
In January 2019, the US ambassador in Germany, Richard Grenell, sent letters to companies involved in the construction of Nord Stream 2 urging them to stop working on the project and threatening them with the possibility of sanctions. In December 2019, the Republican Senators Ted Cruz and Ron Johnson have also urged Allseas owner Edward Heerema to suspend the works on the pipeline, warning him that otherwise the United States would impose sanctions.
On 21 December 2019, Allseas announced that the company had suspended its Nord Stream 2 pipelay activities, anticipating enactment of the U.S. National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2020 containing sanctions.
In May 2020, the German energy regulator refused an exception from competition rules that require Nord Stream 2 to separate gas ownership from transmission.
In August 2020, Poland fined Gazprom €50 million due to the latter’s lack of cooperation with an investigation launched by UOKiK, the Polish anti-monopoly watchdog, under competition rules against Gazprom and companies that are financing the project, suspecting that they have continued to work on the pipeline without permission from the government of Poland.
In December 2020, the Russian pipe layer ship Akademik Cherskiy continued pipe-laying. On 4 June 2021, President Putin announced that the pipe-laying for first line of the Nord Stream 2 has been fully completed. On 10 June, the sections of the pipeline were connected.…
For Nord Stream 2, the loan from Uniper, Wintershall Dea, OMV, Engie, and Royal Dutch Shell covers 50% of the project costs of €9.5 billion. The rest is being financed by Gazprom
The main source of natural gas for the Nord Stream pipeline is Yuzhno-Russkoye field, which is located in the Krasnoselkupsky District, Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug, Tyumen Oblast. Nord Stream is also fed from fields in Yamal Peninsula, Ob-Taz bay. Gazprom has also indicated that the majority of gas produced at the Shtokman field would be sold to Europe via the Nord Stream pipeline. For this purpose, the pipeline from the Shtokman field via Kola peninsula to Volkhov or Vyborg in the Leningrad Oblast has to be built.…” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nord_Stream#Nord_Stream_2
The license for the gas field is held by majority Russian government owned Gazprom:
Wintershall DEA is 1/3rd owned by LetterOne. So, BASF and Uniper combined would still be less than half German owned: “The licence for the Yuzhno-Russkoye field is owned by Severneftegazprom, the subsidiary of Russian gas company Gazprom. German energy company Wintershall Dea, a subsidiary of BASF, owns 35% minus one share (25% of voting shares minus one share) in Severneftegazprom. German company Uniper (previously E.ON) holds also 25% share of Severneftegazprom minus one share.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yuzhno-Russkoye_field
More information re Merkel:
According to former German Transport Minister Günther Krause who was a former colleague of German Chancellor Merkel, who worked with Merkel in the (Communist) German Democratic Republic (GDR) and who served with her in Helmut Kohl’s government in the early 1990s: “With Agitation and Propaganda you’re responsible for brainwashing in the sense of Marxism. That was her task and that wasn’t cultural work. Agitation and Propaganda, that was the group that was meant to fill people’s brains with everything you were supposed to believe in the GDR, with all the ideological tricks. And what annoys me about this woman is simply the fact that she doesn’t admit to a closeness to the system in the GDR. From a scientific standpoint she wasn’t indispensable at the Academy of Sciences. But she was useful as a pastor’s daughter in terms of Marxism-Leninism. And she’s denying that. But it’s the truth.” https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Das_erste_Leben_der_Angela_M.

Trump in Vandalia Ohio, September 21, 2020:
“By the way, nobody’s been tougher on Russia than me. With the sanctions, with the I exposed, right, Nord Stream two. That’s the pipeline. No, you never heard of Nord Stream until I came along. I said to Germany, let me get this straight. We defend Germany, right? We defend Germany and that’s it. They don’t pay what they’re supposed to pay they’re delinquent, you know, they’re delinquent. So I said to Angela and I like Angela, but she’s smart, you know, why should she pay if she doesn’t have to? So I said, Angela, so we defend you against Russia and you pay billions of dollars to Russia. How does that work?” See ca 21 min: https://www.bitchute.com/video/LXlaBHDYtU7d/. And, so, “Trump moved US New U.S.-Poland Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement signed” 15.08.2020 https://www.gov.pl/web/national-defence/new-us-poland-enhanced-defense-cooperation-agreement-signed
Anyone who thinks that Putin supported Trump in 2020, after Trump worked to sell US LNG to Poland and move more US troops to Poland, is not in their right mind, or not thinking. Poland explains: “We have created a legal framework for the permanent presence of the US Armed Forces in Poland, both in the currently planned scope and in the possible further extension; as discussed, inter alia, by Mark Esper, the US Secretary of Defense. It means that the agreement signed today opens the possibility to enhance the presence of US troops in Poland, and also to organize much more US military exercises in our country.” https://www.gov.pl/web/national-defence/new-us-poland-enhanced-defense-cooperation-agreement-signed
