The fact is that Poland won in an international arbitration court in Stockholm.

Now Russia's got two choices: to pay and end this case or not to pay and create precedence. A precedence which will be used against them in the future not only by Poland by anyone else who deals with them. Gazprom will also show how unreliable as a partner they are, that's hardly what they need right now under American sanctions over NS2.

This way or another Poland will still take back that money at the end. It can be deducted from the last payment at the end gas contract with gazprom which ends in 2022.

But I believe gazproim will pay that fine, after a traditional (for Russia) period of psychological games. Yes, they are unpredictable and they like to use gas as a political weapon but at the end of the day they realize that they're just a huge, armed pertol station for Europe. And they're only singnificant source of income comes from selling gas and oil and crude minerals to more developed countries.

Interesting...

The association "Deutsche Umwelthilfe" is going to court (in Stralsund) to revoke the operational licence for Nord Stream 2.

They say new scientific findings show that the pipeline leaks unhealthy "climate gas" Methane (much worse than CO2)...and that with these findings the construction would had never been allowed in the first place.

Methane.

Thought they were thinking of pumping hydrogen instead?

....even as Nordstream is nearly done already it seems even the in Germany very powerful climate "lobby" is against Nordstream now...only Merkel is still missing. Wouldn't be the first time she changes her opinion about 180°, why not here?

What is their weight? Can they exert any real pressure or they are just one of many objectors?

...it's a sign, not much more. The rest will depend on the outcome.

Before a request of inspection was declined by the responsible Bergamt Stralsund. Now the Umwelthilfe want's to force it through a court decision.

Here some background info about the DUH in English:

They are quite mean! Their dissuasions are mostly legally sound and can be very expensive...they are very unpopular and even feared by politicians and business leaders...they love to force people and whole companies to court and to punish them with hefty fines when they see the environment endangered.

Think about a club of green tinged money thirsty and merciless lawyers! :)
