The European Commission was called to check the Russian company Gazprom, which could be involved in the increase in gas prices in Europe.

A group of 40 MEPs from Poland and the Baltic States made an official request, TASS reports.

Leader of the Union Party-90″/”The Greens ” stated that the Kremlin wants to launch its Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline, for this they will have to increase political pressure to launch this project.

The possible successor of Angela Merkel accuses the ruling bloc of having done a “disservice” for Germany by supporting the construction of the gas pipeline. As a result, Germany got into a “blackmail situation”, and ordinary citizens will have to pay.

Now the politician demands from Angela Merkel that she influence Moscow to supply sufficient volumes of gas to Germany.

At the same time, Alexey Miller, who heads Gazprom, expressed confidence that gas prices will only grow.

Miller attributes this to the fact that fuel is being slowly pumped into underground storage facilities, and the demand for it is growing.

As Topnews wrote earlier, German politicians demand that Russia sell Nord Stream-2 to another supplier. According to the new rules, the part that is located on the territory of the EU cannot belong to Russia.

Sergey Shvetsov suggested thinking independently about earning money in retirement.

The Network is discussing the statement of the first deputy head of the Central Bank Sergey Shvetsov for his statement to pensioners.

During a meeting of the Federation Council Committee, the financier expressed the opinion that it is already “a little late”to help pensioners in Russia.

According to Shvetsov, by the time of retirement, Russians should have their own savings. For this reason, state support should be provided throughout life (during work).

This will allow future pensioners to save capital and retire – “with a good pension project”. But it should be formed by the citizen himself.

Shvetsov also noted that it is time to move away from the” Soviet past”: pensioners are already used to relying on the state, and this is”socialism”. In Russia, it is necessary to build a system of capitalism, the official is sure.

The deputy head of the Central Bank Chairman called on the authorities to form pension institutions, clean up unscrupulous players, conduct agitation among citizens to save money.

Shvetsov suggested storing funds in pension funds, insurance companies, you can get passive income from stocks, bonds – or even from buying real estate.

“It will help a person when renting it out,” concluded Sergey Shvetsov.

The words of the financier angered the Russians, who in social networks demanded to return their frozen funded part.

They did not understand the meaning of the statement, and taking into account the fact that the elections were held on the eve.

 & laquo;It's a little late to help pensioners»: the deputy head of the Central Bank angered the Russians with his arguments

“That is, pay to the pension fund, and pensions are a horseradish?”

“Let the offshore zones rely on the money of our state. And what about pensioners? Dust”

“I urge the state not to rely on my taxes”

“Why then deductions to the pension fund?”

“After the elections, the Russians began a black streak?”

“Can we not rely on this state”

“And that’s right, state pensions are for the state. Although in general this is expected and I had no illusions to ever count on her, ” the Network is outraged.

 Checks of expensive purchases of property from citizens without official income have begun in Russia

The Saratov region was the first to be noted.

Vice-Governor of the Saratov region Roman Busargin in his Telegram channel said that checks of citizens who do not have official income, but acquire expensive property, have begun in the region.

The project began in the status of a pilot, the official said.

Now, according to him, the administration of the Engel district is studying the lists of local residents who are not officially engaged in any activity, but buy very expensive objects.

The list includes more than forty people who became owners of expensive housing and cars in 2021.

Law enforcement agencies – “profile structures” will study the sources of funds from Saratov residents, the vice-governor said.

Also, according to Busargin, earlier the declarations submitted to the tax service by agricultural producers were checked. As a result, “egregious facts” were revealed.

He explained that some of them leased very expensive foreign cars, and issued them as agricultural machinery. After that, they included the purchase of the vehicle in losses, which led to a reduction in the tax burden.

Busargin said that the pilot inspections will bring an additional 676.6 million rubles to the regional budget since the beginning of the year.

In just one week, the mobilization of income in various directions brought 30.8 million.

Ukraine has threatened to cut off gas to Europe

Ukraine has threatened to cut off gas to Europe

It became known at what development of events the implementation of such a scenario is possible.

Ukrainian Energy Minister Herman Galushchenko made a resonant statement.

According to him, if the launch of the Nord Stream “2 ” significantly reduces gas supplies through Nezalezhnaya, then Kiev will reorient the gas system for domestic needs.

Galushchenko said this during a meeting with his German counterpart Andreas Feicht.

He stressed that in this case, a number of EU countries may not have enough gas.

At the same time, the route of blue fuel to Europe may be blocked, which will allow Russia to seize even greater levers of influence.

German Galushchenko stressed that gas supplies through Ukraine are the only route of fuel supplies to Europe that is not controlled by the Russian Federation.

At the same time, according to the Ukrainian Minister of Energy, this route remains underutilized, since about 70% of the system is not used now.

According to Galushchenko’s assumption, after the launch of the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline, only 10-15 billion cubic meters of gas per year will be pumped through Ukraine.

This will not allow the gas transportation system to fully operate, so it will pump 30 billion cubic meters of gas required for the needs of the country.

Earlier, topNews wrote that Gazprom announced the completion of the construction of the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline.

According to experts, the system is fully ready for operation.


The media called three obstacles for the start of the work of the Nord Stream-2

 The media named three obstacles to starting the work of

Politico: first you need to get rid of three obstacles.

Columnist America Hernandez, in an article for Politico, stated that three obstacles must be removed to launch the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline.

Among them, she pointed out the need for technical work, which will take at least three months.

By them, she means the cleaning of the offshore territories of the Nord Stream-2, checking the gas pipeline for leaks and potential problems.

The second thing to do before the start of the international project is to get a security certificate from an independent and internationally recognized expert organization.

Hernandez recalled that any such company will automatically fall under US sanctions, as previously reported by Senator James Risch.

The third obstacle will be the confirmation of the object’s compliance with European requirements. They must be issued by the German Federal Network Agency (BNA), which is the regulator of SP-2.

However, the permit may be temporary if on the eve of winter, against the background of low gas reserves in storage facilities and high prices, experts see a threat to the country’s energy security.

As Topnews wrote earlier, Gazprom announced the completion of the construction of the gas pipeline on September 10.


Gazprom announced the completion of the construction of the Nord Stream-2

Recall that on the eve of the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, announced Moscow’s intention to continue gas transit through Ukrainian territory.

“But this issue is purely commercial,” she added, according to Interfax.

Zakharova explained that the continuation of transit requires solving many issues, including the competitiveness of alternative gas routes, as well as the volume of purchases that future European consumers will declare.

She also called the construction an example of positive cooperation between Russia and the EU and expressed the hope that in the future the object will not be the subject of negative speculation.

As Topnews wrote earlier, earlier the media called the start date of gas supplies for & #8220;SP-2”. They will begin on October 1, and from December 1, both strands of the highway will start working.

At the same time, on September 9, Maria Zakharova said that the delivery time would depend on the position of the German regulator.

Its length is 2,460 km, its capacity is 55 billion cubic meters. The media clarified that Gazprom had to finish building the facility itself due to US sanctions against a contractor from Switzerland.
