Ironically in the shadow of the judgment in the Berlin Tiergartenprozess , Chancellor Olaf Scholz completed its first EU summit .

Other Western countries have also raised the tone.

The successor of Angela Merkel stressed in Brussels that Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock with the expulsion of two Russian diplomats found the right answer to the verdict. Should mean: only no further oil pour into the fire. On the one hand, Scholz follows the right insight that in view of the Russian troop march on the eastern border of Ukraine, no one can use a verbal escalation. When talked, then best with Russia instead of Russia.

Moscow denied the dialog

on the other hand show the dialogue refusal of Moscow and state terrorism as in the case of Tiergarten murder: Scholz should have confessed in Brussels of clear color, which is concerned with the price of a possible aggression of Russia against Ukraine. This concerns in particular North Stream 2. Especially Germany's partners in the east of the EU would like to know something more precisely as to whether the new federal government would actually be prepared to sacrifice the pipeline project if Kremlinchef Wladimir Putin should attack Ukraine.

Especially the Greens penetrate a harder approach to Russia. Thus, they are on a line with most EU states that do not consider the Baltic Sea Pipeline other than Civil Chancellor Merkel as a purely economic project.

also Scholz would be well advised if he would adopt the assessment prevailing in the EU. Accordingly, Nord Stream 2 is a geopolitical power instrument with which Putin wants to weaken Ukraine further weaken.

There is another reason why it would make sense for Scholz to make a clear connection between a Russian aggression in Ukraine and one for the Baltic Sea pipeline. Germany's new head of government has come up with the claim to prevent each division in the EU. That sounds good. But the chancellor should not be overlooked that Nord Stream 2 is a project that the European Union divides into two camps. And the more aggressive Russia occurs, the more the pipeline advocates get into the defensive.

Putin promises a "military and technical" answer in case of Western threats .
"in case of maintaining the very clearly aggressive line of our Western colleagues, we will take adequate military and technical measures," said the President Russian in front of the fine flower of the army and the Ministry of Defense.
