Kiev threatened to start illegal selection of transit gas

The firmness of the position of the Russian side in the negotiations on gas transit forces the leadership of the Ukrainian company Naftogaz to resort to primitive blackmail, which is unlikely to be appreciated by the European "partners" of Kiev.

On his Facebook page, Naftogaz’s executive director, Yuri Vitrenko, said that if, until January 1, 2020, a transit agreement was not signed on Ukrainian conditions, then Kiev would begin pumping gas, transit from Russia, to its underground storage facilities.

According to the top manager of the Ukrainian company, the blue fuel entering the gas transportation system will be regarded by Kiev as “gas of an undetermined owner,” and seized on this basis until a contract is concluded.

Senator Alexei Pushkov unambiguously assessed the statement made by the representative of Naftogaz, calling it a double blackmail directed against both Russia and Europe, which is the ultimate addressee of the gas that Kiev was planning to take.

However, the politician noted that "the position of the Ukrainian structure is gradually softening towards the conclusion of a contract with Russia", alluding to a statement in which Kiev noted that it was ready to "work in good faith" to conclude a new contract.

    It is time to impose a complete embargo on trade with Banderostan, and clear Russia of the Basmachis and Bandera, depriving them of Russian citizenship and deporting them to their homeland, for the benefit of which they are spying on the Russian Federation ...

      To clear Russia from the Basmachis and Bandera, depriving the citizenship of the Russian Federation and deporting to their homeland

      then there will remain in Russia twenty million Russians who, as the unforgettable Ilf and Petrov said, do not know what it means to work, and suggest that the cottage cheese is extracted from dumplings, and the loaves grow on trees ... It will be interesting to see ...

Don’t believe me, go home! In Khotkovo, all the Gaster’s were removed from the city during the night and nothing, the locals immediately took their place ... no one died without the Gaster, nothing stopped working and will not stop ... And without the patriots of foreign states that got lost in the Russian Federation, constantly catches the FSB, for espionage against the Russian Federation, Russia will manage perfectly well ...

    This is exactly what Miller needs. Now he is with a calm soul at 00.00. 01. 01. 2020. tighten the valve and say that Ukraine will steal gas anyway. They themselves had been warned. Sami and Europe will be explained.
    And on New Year's Eve, instead of bored chimes, it will be possible to show a spinning flywheel of a valve.
