“Close and forget”: Kolomoisky said that Ukraine does not need Russian gas

The odious Ukrainian oligarch Igor Kolomoisky, who is reasonably suspected of unlimited influence on President Zelensky, believes that Ukraine will do without Russian gas.

He stated this during an interview with the Russian edition of RBC.

According to the oligarch, Ukraine has already suffered so much damage from Russia's actions that it simply has to suffer the loss of 3 billion from the cessation of transit of Russian gas.

He is sure that the pipe could be “closed and forgotten”, since Ukraine never needed Russian gas, and Ukrainian oligarchs such as Firtash, Levochkin, Boyko and Medvedchuk made it a fetish to rob Ukraine and sometimes Russia.

Kolomoisky believes that Russia not only deprived Ukraine of half of its GDP as a result of hostilities, but also frightened off foreign investors who would not risk investing in a country where there is a civil war.

Concluding his speech on Russian gas, the Ukrainian billionaire said that Ukraine will be able to take gas from Europe.

Igor Valerievich knows how to speak convincingly, but at the same time prefers to keep silent about his own schemes, with the help of which he robbed Ukraine for more than two decades and after Zelensky came to power he will do it with a vengeance and opportunities.

    As for the transit, Benya lost his temper, as well as when, in the "myzdobul" confidence that "Ameryka is from us (remember the well-known, March 2014," demarche "of the same" confident "air lieutenant colonel at the Crimean airfield Belbek ?! winked), tried to publicly insult the President of Russia personally! request
    But almost twofold (after the devastating "Euromaidan" and post-Maidan bonded "Euroassociation"), the reduced NEEDS of the Ukrainian population and the Ukrainian industry for natural gas are completely overlapped by the VOLUMES OF NATURAL GAS PRODUCED IN UKRAINE - AND THE PRICE OF THIS GREAT DIRECT GAS all the more so, mega-expensive gas "stinking gas schemes" and American liquefied !!!
    But the thing is that all this natural gas of Ukrainian production, which belongs to the Ukrainian population, as the owner of the subsoil, is resold to Europe by Ukrainian klepto-oligarch hucksters !!!
    It is clear that Benya is "in business", which is probably why he also "forgot" to say about Ukrainian gas, and "shouts loudest" about "Russian transit" and purchases, "Euro-Russian" and the same old-fashioned Ukrainian gas for a cordon already "at atomic prices" ?! winked

    Kolomoisky personally can easily do without Russian gas. And on others he doesn’t care.
    People said about the rich:

    The rich and the devil cradle shakes.

    By the way, do you know how he made his fortune? I can’t vouch for the reliability (Benya does not consider it necessary to be frank), but, as they say, after the "Belovezhsky tea drinking", Kolomoisky set cordons on all roads leading to the Dnepropetrovsk region; they looked for cars with Russian numbers and collected a toll for entry into the Dnipropetrovsk region.
    For people like him, all means are good if they bring profit, and by "investing" in Ze, he expects huge profits.

    ... and about the names of Russian businessmen with whom he still does business (turns schemes?), which he directly stated in that interview. And these surnames are extremely interesting, given his 2014 "proposal":

    If they don’t need Russian gas, then Russia why gas transit through the territory of Ukraine?

    Kolomoychik is fundamentally right to close and forget Ukraine.

    That’s where I would support him. Brew a pipe and forget, and lag behind Russia.
