Former President Donald Trump has volunteered to broker a peace agreement between Russia, Ukraine, and the United States. His offer came just before he uploaded Joe Biden’s prior words about “stopping” the Nord Stream pipeline, and he warned the country once more that Biden may be leading the country directly into World War III.
In a Wednesday Truth Social post, Trump offered to “head up” a peacemaking organization.
On the “SABOTAGE of the Nord Stream Pipelines,” “US ‘Leadership’ should be ‘cool, calm, and dry,” Trump said. He added that this is a major occurrence that should not necessitate a major answer, at least not yet.
Former President Donald Trump offered to mediate a peace settlement between Russia and Ukraine on September 28. His offer came just before he released Joe Biden’s past words about “stopping” the Nord Stream pipeline and warned that he might be dragging the country directly into World War III. Trump’s offer was made in connection with a mention of the recent damage to the Nord Stream I and II gas pipelines.
The pipelines, which Trump said were damaged, might result in a “serious escalation” between the US, Russia, and Europe. On Truth Social, he added that leaders in the United States should be “cool, calm, and dry.”
“This is a major event with no great answer, at least not yet,” he wrote. “The Russia/Ukraine disaster should never have happened, and it would never have happened if I were President.” Don’t make problems worse by blowing up the pipeline. Be clever, smart (amazing! ), and get a transaction done NOW.”
Both sides require and desire it. It is the fate of the entire world that is at risk. “Will I be in charge of [the] group?” Trump stated.
Shortly after publishing his offer in February, Trump posted a video of Biden threatening Nord Stream.
The horrific events in Ukraine might lead to World War III; Trump told podcast host John Catsimatidis on September 27. Trump believes we’re at the most dangerous moment in many, many years because of nuclear power.
According to European officials, the pipes were intentionally disrupted on September 26. Some accused Moscow, although Russia has co-operated with Germany on Nord Stream I for years, and a top Kremlin official on September 28 refuted such assertions.
Russia, which reduced gas exports to Europe after the West imposed sanctions in response to Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine, has also hinted at sabotage. Any sabotage of Nord Stream pipelines, according to Russia’s embassy in Denmark, is an attack on both Russia’s and Europe’s energy security.
There will be a meeting of the United Nations Security Council on September 30 at Russia’s request to assess damage to the Nord Stream pipelines, according to the French U.N. mission, which holds the chair of the 15-member council for September.
Any deliberate interruption of European energy infrastructure is unacceptable and will be confronted with a harsh and united reaction, EU foreign policy head Josep Borrell warned.
Meanwhile, seismologists in Denmark and Sweden concluded that explosions were the most likely source of the undersea pipeline damage and ruled out natural explanations. Bjorn Lund, head of the Swedish National Seismic Network at Uppsala University, told NPR on September 27 that the seismic record clearly shows that they are explosions.
“These are not earthquakes,” he said, and they are not undersea landslides. Lund told Swedish television that he had “no doubt that these were explosions.”
The Kremlin’s Reaction
In an interview with reporters on September 28, senior Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov flatly denied that Moscow was behind the suspected sabotage. He described the damage as a “major concern” for Russia since “gas is very expensive.”
First and foremost, both Nord Stream pipes are full of gas. Because gas is pricey, and that gas is currently shooting off into the air, Peskov told Reuters. Do we care about that? No, we are not; we have lost a gas supply channel to Europe.
