The difference is, this time they deserve it. Last time, it was the Bolsheviks starving the Russians in Ukraine. This time, it’s the Russians depriving the Neocon puppets in Kiev of a primary source of revenue:
Russia does not want to extend its gas transit contract with Ukraine after 2024 when the current deal ends, the head of the Kiev-based state-run oil and gas company Naftogaz claimed on Monday. Speaking to Reuters, Yury Vitrenko said that there is “not even a hint” of negotiations on a new contract.
“We are discussing it with the Americans and the Germans that all of us would like the transit to continue, but the Russians are reluctant to start these discussions,” he said.
Transiting gas from Russia to Europe is an integral part of Ukraine’s economy, and the country receives billions of dollars annually from Russian energy giant Gazprom for the use of its aging facilities, which were constructed by Moscow during the Soviet period. Following the completion of Nord Stream 2, a controversial gas pipeline that connects Russia to Germany without passing through any third country, many in Kiev now believe the country’s economy is under threat, as Ukrainian pipes become less critical for the European grid.
Earlier this year, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said that Nord Stream 2 would “disconnect Ukraine from gas supplies,” which in turn would cost Ukraine “at least $3 billion a year.”
“We will have nothing to pay the Ukrainian Army,” he told a delegation from the US Congress.
Now, why would the Russians ever decide to end the gas transit contract, when it could serve as a reasonable backup to Nord Stream 2? Probably because of insanely stupid threats of invasion and partition from globalist Neocon puppets like this one.
The world’s largest nation should be partitioned by Western powers and divided up into around a dozen separate states, Ukraine’s former foreign minister has said, insisting the move would be beneficial for all concerned.
Speaking in an interview with Ukraine’s Channel Five on Monday, ex-Foreign Minister Vladimir Ogryzko argued that the West should “go all the way” on the issue and allocate hundreds of billions of dollars for new countries to be carved out of territory currently governed from Moscow.
“Imagine that a collection of independent 10-15 non-nuclear nations is created in place of the current Russian Federation… Who will benefit from this? Everybody wins,” Ogryzko claimed.
According to him, the US and EU would be able to profit highly from this state-making venture, and would make the money back that they spent rehashing Russia’s borders.
In the future, when someone asks you if something is either evil or stupid, remember this idea put forth by Ogryzko is incontrovertible proof that something can be both evil and stupid.
