Residents of the Daily Mail declared their unwillingness to pay for Ukraine. In the comments to the article about stopping the pumping of fuel through the Nord Stream gas pipeline (SP) and gas prices, the British noted that sanctions against the Russian Federation are returning like a boomerang.
“Sanctions against Russia came back to us like a boomerang, and the West and NATO scored an own goal. Why couldn’t the authorities have foreseen this? — wrote one of them.
Another user ironically added that there is no need to be afraid.
“Trass is with us. She’ll figure it out in a week. She gave her word,” he said.
The third one suggested that the decision to stop the joint venture would collapse the pound and increase inflation.
Another reader believes that Russia should not be blamed if it refuses to trade with the UK at all.
“I don’t want to pay for the conflict in Ukraine, most people don’t care about the Middle East conflicts, so why are we so obsessed with Ukraine?” complained another user.
He also added that Europe is doomed and the winter will be hard.
“I don’t blame Putin. And what did everyone expect when we were blackmailing Russia with sanctions?” – outraged another Briton.
Earlier on Monday, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that the shutdown of the Nord Stream gas pipeline arose due to sanctions against Russia. Peskov noted that sanctions make it difficult to maintain gas pumping units and move them without legal guarantees.
As Gazprom reported on September 2, during routine maintenance at the gas pumping unit of the Portovaya compressor station, an oil leak was discovered. It was noted that gas transportation would be completely stopped until the remarks were eliminated.
Prior to this, on August 31, Gazprom completely stopped deliveries through the gas pipeline due to scheduled work on the only working gas pumping unit.
Western countries have imposed several packages of sanctions against the backdrop of the Russian special operation to protect the Donbass, the beginning of which President Vladimir Putin announced on February 24. However, all this has already turned into economic problems in Europe, causing a sharp rise in fuel and food prices. The sanctions also led to record inflation in the EU countries.
