… of which I wrote on many occasions. Such as four years ago, or even earlier. This is not some Russian rah-rah, but cold hard facts which manifest itself also on the practical battlefield of the largest combined arms clash of the century.
In the end, I did predict it. Allow me to be smug for an instance–I am just a human and once in a while it is so pleasant to achieve the mode “I Told You So”.
The German government is calling for EU sanctions on Russia’s nuclear industry as the Kremlin’s war on Ukraine rages on. It is evident that Russia was deliberately using dependencies in the energy sector as a means of exerting pressure, Economics Minister Robert Habeck told dpa. “The German government has therefore now spoken out to the European Commission in favour of including the civilian nuclear sector. This should be part of the next sanctions package.” Russia supplies uranium for nuclear fuel rods and stores radioactive waste on its territory, among other areas of activity. It is necessary to become more independent of Russia throughout the EU, Habeck said. “We have already come a long way in many areas, including energy. The nuclear sector is still open,” he said. He said it was unjustifiable that the sector was still being given preferential treatment. “Nuclear technology is an extremely sensitive area, and Russia can no longer be considered a reliable partner here.”
The speed with which Germany implements Morgenthau Plan on herself is amazing. This wreck of a country decided to shut down its last three nuclear power plants and now thinks that it can impose anything on Russia. I am on record, again, Russian economy is much larger (and I mean much) than German one and it operates on a completely different bases than that of Germany. Germany’s (and Europe’s) largest corporation, Siemens, learned the hard way about its grossly exaggerated importance for Russia first with turbines affair in Crimea and now losing juicy contract to Transmasholding in India. Per Rosatom, Herr Habeck should learn first about it. But don’t hold your breath. Somebody should explain to Berlin what it means that German tanks begin to burn on Russian soil again.
