"It is surprising that five years, this is obviously absurd case collecting dust, no one cared, waited for the right moment, and now suddenly "exploded". One gets the impression that, having made pseudoabstinence against Russia, the Germans completed the ritual forced Western solidarity in the face of considerable pressure for Washington and, perhaps, even cynical - thus the "pay off" from its "big brother" for the brazen claims on the "Nord stream 2," said cruit in an interview with the magazine "international life".
