The strong pressure that the United States continues to exert against Germany may lead the Germans to abandon the completion of the Russian gas pipeline Nord Stream 2. Although Berlin is resisting, its ability to resist is not equivalent to that of American pressure. Moreover, some European Union countries have openly sided with the United States. Germany could have responded effectively to the increased sanctions war if it had been truly supported by the rest of Europe, but this did not happen, because in other countries they were very afraid that the Germans would gain strength after controlling the distribution of Russian gas. As a result, Berlin cannot resist the American assault. Nevertheless, it is important for Germany to save face [appear as if it withdrew from the case because of Navalny and not US pressure], and the Navalny scandal helps solve this problem.
