Why does Germany support the construction of the Nord Stream 2 Pipeline, while the West does not impose tougher sanctions for the numerous crimes in the Putin regime? This unity after Donald Trump and the problems in the United States or the Brexit or is it corruption and disintegration of the Western elite by Russia?
Answer from the Ascended Master Saint Germain through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2021 Webinar for Russia – Overcoming the consciousness of Superiority and the Sense of Being Unwhole, Traumatized and Focused Outside Oneself.
The situation you have in Europe right now is that several nations in Europe, Germany included, is attempting to maintain a pragmatic approach to Russia. They realized that there is a problem in Russia. It is caused by Putin primarily. But they are not sure where this is going to go. They are hoping that they can still maintain a somewhat pragmatic approach to Russia, where they can avoid escalating a confrontation that could lead to war even.
As a result of this pragmatic approach, German leadership has decided that their best option for covering the energy needs of the German nation is to import gas from Russia. And the best option for doing this is to build this new pipeline. I am not saying that this is necessarily the highest option or the only option, but it is what the German leadership has decided. And they are hoping that this will actually, in a sense, cause Putin to also take a more balanced approach because he, of course, realizes that, in the current economic situation of Russia, they need the income from this gas, as their revenues have fallen during the corona crisis and the fall in energy prices.
Some of the countries in Europe are hoping that much of what Russia is doing, for example in Ukraine, is simply posturing, but that there are still some people in Russia who are pragmatic enough that they will not allow it to escalate into a more dangerous conflict.
This is not the only approach it could be taken. But it is certainly not necessarily a completely wrong approach because so far, it has at least kept the conflict within certain boundaries, whether this will always be the case is difficult to predict. It really depends on what happens to the collective consciousness in Russia, and how quickly it rises to the level where Putin and his administration simply have to go, and therefore, the equation changes in a fundamental way.
