Nord Stream 2: harsh criticism of fake foundation

 New details about the financing of the fake environmental foundation in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern emerged. The russian bankrollers want to control the important decisions of the foundation. Geman politicians fustigate this blatant case of "political corruption".

Source BILD:

Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania's head of government Manuela Schwesig (46, SPD) wants to promote environmental protection with her new state foundation. But in reality it is a Russian-controlled organization that wants to promote the construction of the controversial Nord Stream 2 pipeline!

► Because now it comes out: The “Foundation for Climate and Environmental Protection MV”, decided by Schwesig's government last week, is not only financed with 20 million euros (99 percent) by Russians - the business that is to be founded is also under the control of the Russian gas company Gazprom.

The draft statute states: “The first expert managing director will be appointed by the foundation board for three years at the proposal of Nord Stream 2 AG.” His “business principles” should also be approved “in consultation with Nord Stream 2 AG”.

Nord Stream 2 is Gazprom's gas pipeline project. More than half of the Russian company is owned by the state. Means: The Kremlin will decide in the future in the supposedly “common good” and “state-owned” foundation of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.

The aim of the foundation is to protect the companies involved in the construction of the pipeline from US sanctions.

But the consequences may be even more far-reaching! Because according to the foundation statutes, the foundation can “also acquire land and land” and establish “legally independent companies”.

"Manuela Schwesig is following in Gerhard Schröder's footsteps, because she negligently makes her federal state dependent on corporate decisions that are ultimately made in the Kremlin," said FDP parliamentary deputy Alexander Graf Lambsdorff (54) to BILD. For EU politician Niclas Herbst (CDU) Schwesig's deal is “nothing more than political corruption”.

Fridays for Future protested on Monday against Nord Stream 2. And environmental aid boss Sascha Müller-Kraenner (57) warns of dodgy real estate deals by Russian oligarchs in Meck-Pomm: “It's like Cyprus, only without palm trees.” The foundation statutes show that you Business enterprise "is not limited to the mere completion of Nord Stream 2", said Müller-Kraenner to BILD.
