No more purchases from Russia: FDP faction demands dismantling of Nord Stream 2

The controversial Nord Stream 2 construction project comes to a standstill after the war of aggression against Ukraine. The FDP parliamentary group is now demanding that the previous construction work for the Baltic Sea pipeline be reversed. In addition, the sanctions against Russia are to be strengthened.

The FDP parliamentary group wants to finally close the chapter on the Nord Stream 2 Baltic Sea pipeline. "As Free Democrats, we demand the dismantling of Nord Stream 2 and the fastest possible development of a concept for legal, technical and environmental protection," says a position paper adopted at the autumn meeting in Bremen. The FDP parliamentary group wants to end all purchases of raw materials and energy from Russia and Belarus as quickly as possible, insofar as this is permitted by their own economic capacity to act.

"Right from the start, the Nord Stream pipelines were a geopolitical project of the Kremlin, the aim of which was to isolate Ukraine. That is why the construction of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline in particular led to considerable resentment and diplomatically isolated Germany," says the decision in which further support is also promised to Ukraine.

Russia's aggression must continue to be answered consistently with economic sanctions. Sanctions worked, the first effects are already visible. "We are calling for the sanctions against members of the Russian leadership to be expanded and we are in favor of expelling family members of people on the sanctions list and withdrawing visas," said the FDP parliamentary group. "If individual countries, including EU accession candidates, circumvent sanctions or even supply weapons to Russia, this cannot go unchallenged. If EU accession candidates circumvent the sanctions, the pre-accession aid must be canceled."
