EU Betrayal: Brussels recommended Ukraine to buy gas directly to the Russian Federation

The lack of common sense in Ukraine’s position regarding the purchase and transit of Russian gas began to annoy even the European Union, which in Kiev is considered a partner and ally.

Agency TASSCiting a source in EU institutions related to tripartite talks, the European Commission recommends that Ukraine reduce costly reverse supplies and move to direct gas purchases from Russia.

According to the source, we are talking about the volume of 15 billion cubic meters of gas per year.

Is it necessary to say that such a proposal on the part of the EC will be regarded in Ukraine as a betrayal of the European Union?

He also noted that the recommendations of the European Commission are based on the understanding that by switching to direct purchases, Ukraine will increase Russia's interest in the Ukrainian gas transportation system and to some extent reduce tension around gas tariffs within the country.

At the same time, the source refrained from commenting on the Russian side’s demand to “nullify” all existing claims from Ukraine and refuse to execute earlier court decisions.

Recall that at the proposal of the European Commission on November 19 could take place technical a meeting of representatives of the parties to the negotiations to prepare the next round of ministerial consultations.

However, in the light of recent statements by the Ukrainian Minister of Energy and the Executive Director of Naftogaz, about which we wrote previously, the possibility of this meeting seems unlikely.

    Lack of common sense in the position of Ukraine

    There is no point here, they are doing what the owner orders (while he is pouring some money into the feeder). This gas confrontation between Ukraine and Russia is beneficial to the Americans, and they do not care what happens to the outskirts, they said they were ready to make such sacrifices if they would harm Russia.

    Here the interests of the EU come into conflict with the interests of the United States. For the United States, the worse the relations between Ukraine and the Russian Federation, the better.
    But "reverse" schemes are massive corruption in its purest form. By and large, the EU does not give a damn about Ukraine, but the countries of the EU itself are involved there, and this does not look kosher. The scale of corruption is too great and it is too badly disguised.
