President Biden will reportedly be waiving sanctions soon for the corporation behind Russia’s Nord Stream 2 pipeline into Germany. The pipeline is already 95% finished as of this report.

Axios confirmed this turn of events with two sources. According to their report, it is proof that the “Biden administration is not willing to compromise its relationship with Germany over this pipeline.”

But, Secretary of State Antony Blinken swore that he would fight the completion of the pipeline during his confirmation hearing. “I am determined to do whatever we can to prevent that completion (of Nord Stream 2),” Blinken said at the time.

These sources told Axios that top officials’ opinion is that the only way to stop the pipeline is “to sanction the German end-users of the gas.”

Putin has said in recent years that Finland is considered friendly so long as they do not join NATO. Finland’s President Sauli Niinistö confirmed Sunday he has applied for NATO membership.

MetroUK tweeted chilling video and reported the following:

Russia has started moving nuclear-capable missiles towards its border with Finland hours after Moscow vowed not to tolerate Helsinki’s plans to join Nato.

The Kremlin issued a chilling warning that plans for both Finland and Sweden to sign up to the Atlantic alliance were a ‘grave mistake with far reaching consequences’.

Russian deputy foreign minister, Sergei Ryabkov, said: ‘They should have no illusions that we will simply put up with it,’ and insisted ‘the general level of military tension will rise’.

The video was reportedly taken on a road leading to Vyborg, around 24 miles from the Finnish border, showing the deployment of mobile Iskander missiles.

“Seven launchers are thought to be en route according to commentary on a dash cam video broadcast by Russian media.”

A person on the video can be heard saying: ‘As soon as the president of Finland said they were joining Nato, a whole division of Iskanders, seven of them is moving towards Vyborg.

‘Looks like a new military unit is about to be formed in Vyborg or the region.’
