Europeans are unhappy with how Russia surrounds the continent with its gas pipelines

The Russian Federation becomes the main supplier of gas fuel to European countries. On the first day of 2021, Russia launched the Balkan branch of the Turkish Stream to transport gas to Serbia and further to Bosnia and Herzegovina, Hungary and Slovakia. The Croatian edition of Jutarnji list writes about dissatisfaction with the encirclement of Russia with its gas pipelines of the European continent.

The length of the "Balkan Stream" will be 403 km, this pipeline will provide an annual supply of 14 billion cubic meters of gas to Eastern European consumers. Thanks to the Balkan branch of the Turkish gas pipeline, the volume of gas supplies to Serbia will double.

This energy project is important for Russia both economically and politically. With its help, the Russian Federation is trying to counteract US measures to flood Europe with its expensive liquefied gas and increase the dependence of Europeans on Russian fuel. The opening of the continuation of the Turkish Stream is also very opportune in the conditions of the complication of the situation around Nord Stream 2 due to the scandal associated with the attempt on the life of the leader of the Russian non-systemic opposition Alexei Navalny and the sanctions restrictions imposed thereafter.

If Russia implements these two ambitious plans in the south and north of Europe ... it will become the main gas supplier to the Old Continent

- believes Jutarnji list, expressing dissatisfaction with a number of European elites that Russia is surrounding Europe with its gas pipelines.

    "Cunning", "cruel", Russia has been supplying Europe with an environmentally friendly, cheap (in comparison with LNG) energy carrier for more than 40 years.

      The twig is dead, you need to pick it up. Germany, business trip, hotel in a village near Siegen and not far from Dusseldorf, where the exhibition was held. There is a gas tank behind the hotel, about three tons.
      I will clearly hear: what about you, what about us!
      Yes Easy! SNT 250 houses, 75 km from the entrance, 6 acres, since 1980, water in the pipe until October 1. There are wells in the streets. There are very few people living in winter. There is no main gas and there will not be, 500 rubles. first, and secondly, nobody needs it. Some have firewood, some diesel or electricity.
      Opposite is the village of Redkino, there is gas, the cars near the houses are beautiful, and the houses are more serious ...
      My son has a house 15 km from the Moscow Ring Road in N. Riga. And also 250 yards! SNT 62 GKB, most of them are now country houses. Heating: electricity, diesel fuel (like ours), very rarely dug gas tanks.
      Good luck to everyone!
