The article focuses on political conflicts in Germany that resulted from the elections to the supervisory board of NEPG, the company that will operate the natural gas pipeline from Siberia to northern Germany. The appointees of the company's majority partner included Russian gas conglomerate Gazprom and German former chancellor Gerhard Schröder. The appointment of the former chancellor became controversial following news that his Social Democratic government agreed a €1 billion loan for the gas pipeline project. Matthias Warnig was also designated to the NEPG supervisory board.
