Canada called Putin’s bluff with turbine return for Russian pipeline: Joly

by News Update

Canada’s Foreign Affairs Minister Mélanie Joly says that Russian President Vladimir Putin is playing games with G7 countries over energy exports to Europe.

“We called his bluff. It is now clear that Putin is weaponizing energy flows to Europe. The world sees through his game and that’s why we decided to make sure we took a strong stance and a difficult decision by sending back the turbine directly to Germany,” Joly said during a news conference alongside her German counterpart, Annalena Baerbock, in Montreal on Wednesday.

Canada issued a special sanctions permit that allowed the import, repair and re-export of up to six Russian turbines in a bid to help Germany as it struggles with energy supply.

Russia has claimed that the turbine Canada returned to Germany wasn’t properly repaired and lacks the proper paperwork.

What kind of mindless hypocrisy is this?
The west want to ban Russian oil. When Russia stop sending them oil they call it blackmail.
Do you want Russia oil or do you don’t?
This is so childish.
Freedom gas to the rescue.

Please broadcast news from the Donetsk by Ava Bartlett. We are tired of hearing only one side of the story from the MSM.

According to the situation on the front line today

Soledar. The forces of the DPR / LPR and the Russian Federation entered the central highway of the city. There are fights for the plant. There was an attempt to counter the attack of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Successfully repulsed.

Peski. The southwestern part of the village is under Allied control. The Allies entrenched themselves along two ponds and a dam between them.

Marinka. The city is being stormed now. DPR forces are already a few blocks from the main street on the east side.

Russia doesn't bluff. Germany BEGGED Trudeau to return the turbine. The Biden administration made a mistake using financial sanctions to cripple Russia's economy.

Well he didn't make the sanctions on his country I don't see wrong in weaponize the energy he has

Stop assisting a homicidal maniac that’s ethnic cleansing the Ukrainian people. Why fund his war machine ????

It's Trudeau that is playing games. The liberal government has to go.

Funny Putie says the li3beral west is attempting to infiltrate Europe , and that western media isn't showing us the truth.
At this point I'd believe him over our sock boys monopolized medi*.

The reporter is not asking a question, he is giving his personal opinion , with a grief attitude and very bias, a journalist should be always be and ways maintain a neutral stance no matter the issue.

don't forget, we (the west) weaponising economy by sanction everyone who don't agree with us.

4:01 "we see there is an energy crisis happening in Europe". Too bad Canada didn't have a pipeline to the east coast so they could help the democracies in Europe but Trudeau's friends in Quebec said "no" and Canadian oil and gas will therefore remain in the ground while Putin sells his, or doesn't, at his leisure.

LOL, Russia doesn't have the turbine, so it will be hard for them to install it. We sanctioned Russia, why should they cooperate? Russia didn't start the war in eastern Ukraine, the 2014 coup was run from the Canadian Embassy, John Baird was there in the middle of the uprising, Harper was the first one there shaking hands with Nazis, Canada was the first to send troops, in violation of the Bucharest agreement, this is Canada's war, Russia is just putting an end to it.

Good for Canada.. Tyrants are nothing more than bullies.. Hopefully t the rest of the world will follow suite

Bumbling Brandon August 4, 2022 - 1:20 AM

Canada is a mere insignificant bug to Putin. Especially wannabe dictator Trudumb

Louis Meloche August 4, 2022 - 1:25 AM

I cannot imagine for a minute that Canada is the only place on earth where turbines can be made. In my 40 + years working, Germans are pretty much the best machinists.

Andy Russo August 4, 2022 - 1:27 AM

Let's be clear…Europeans are on this situation because of their self-mpose sanctions. Now Europe is crying because lack of gas. What do you expect be treated with sunflowers. Stop blaming Rusia and be responsible of your actions.

Putin doesn't bluff, and sooner Western leader realize this then less problems they cause to their citizens.
