America wants Europe to “compensate for energy losses caused by Ukraine aggression”

US calls Nord Stream explosions a “huge opportunity”

The Biden administration is calling the Nord Stream blasts a golden opportunity. The alleged “sabotage” could decouple Europe from Russian energy. America is stepping into the breach as Europe’s new leading gas supplier.

Huge underwater explosions in the North Sea this week: It is unclear who or what is behind the destruction of the Nord Stream pipelines.

Europe wants to do without Russian gas as quickly as possible – and according to the Russian energy company Gazprom, it has to do so “indefinitely” because of the Nord Stream explosions. Apparently this is not inconvenient for America. At a press conference on Friday, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken (60) and his Canadian counterpart Mélanie Joly (43) spoke of “pipeline sabotage”. Blinken sees the sabotage of the Nord Stream gas pipelines as a “huge opportunity” to decouple Europe from Russian energy.

Washington has been trying for years to persuade EU leaders to swap Russian gas for American LNG (liquefied natural gas). Compared to conventional natural gas, LNG can be transported by ship. The costly and politically controversial construction of pipelines such as Nord Stream 1 and 2 is no longer necessary.
