Trump Proposes to Mediate Russia-Ukraine Talks

"Donald Trump" by Gage Skidmore

Former President Trump offered to help President Biden broker a US-Russia-Ukraine accord.

The former president took to Truth Social on Wednesday to discuss Russia and Ukraine, especially the Nord Stream and Nord Stream II pipelines. 

It Could Possibly Escalate to War

The former president said everyone is concentrating on the enormous hurricane barreling into Florida, as they should, but a longer-term event was the disclosure that the Nord Stream I & II Pipelines out of Russia were damaged.

Trump recommended they shouldn’t make problems worse by having the pipelines blow up. They should be strategic, wise, and get a negotiated deal done immediately. Both parties need and want it. It’s a global issue. 

In another post, Trump published a video of President Biden promising they would stop the Nord Stream pipelines if Russia invaded Ukraine.

In the clip, President Biden was asked about pipelines. In February, the president claimed Russia’s invasion would end Nord Stream 2 and they’ll put a stop to it. 

How will they accomplish that since Germany controls the project? He promises they’ll succeed. 

International Waters

AP said Denmark thinks “deliberate actions” induced two natural gas pipeline spills under the Baltic Sea from Russia to Germany. Seismologists say powerful blasts preceded the leaks.

European officials and scientists suspect sabotage in the energy impasse with Russia caused by the Ukraine war. Neither pipeline is presently supplying Europe.

Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen emphasized Tuesday that these are planned efforts, not accidents. She stated no one knows who’s behind it. Frederiksen then claimed the spills happened in international waters; therefore, it wasn’t an attack on Denmark. 

The US Embassy in Russia encouraged Americans to leave Russia or risk being drafted. 

The embassy reported on September 21, Russia began mobilizing its citizens for the invasion of Ukraine. Russia may likewise deny dual nationals U.S. citizenship and consular aid, restrict their exit, and draft them for military duty. 

Commercial flight alternatives are restricted and often inaccessible on short notice. Car and bus services remain open. If an American citizen wants to leave Russia, they must make independent plans ASAP.

The U.S. Embassy’s ability to help U.S. citizens is severely limited, and situations, especially transportation, may deteriorate. 

U.S. citizens should not visit Russia and should leave quickly while commercial travel alternatives are determinate.

On, the Department of State gives data on commercial travel. This site contains information about entering adjacent countries, traveling on expired U.S. passports, and immigration rules for American and Russian families. 

They warn U.S. citizens that orderly assembly and free expression aren’t assured in Russia. Don’t capture security at social or political demonstrations because Russian authorities arrested U.S. protesters.
