Why did Biden need a Ukrainian GTS


In my previous articles, discussing the fate of the ill-fated project SP-2, which became a stone of discord between the Russian Federation and the United States, I hinted that the new US administration that has come has its own plan and its own vision of the prospects for this project. Even despite the fact that the new owner of the White House does not have many opportunities to influence the lifting of the sanctions blocking the project (let me remind you that they were passed by the law of the Congress and in order to cancel them the Presidential Decree is not enough, a new law is needed to change the previous one, and in Congress USA on this issue full consensus, how Biden will overcome it, I do not know), nevertheless, this does not prevent him from making plans that can be knocked out of the Russian Federation for allowing the completion of the SP-2 and its further operation.


Biden, although he periodically falls into dementia, has not yet completely lost his mind. What is his benefit from this? He does not look like a clinical idiot (although we are joking about this), then what is his Sly Plan? What is he hinting at when he suggests Frau Merkel to discuss the possibility of completing SP-2 while maintaining the transit of Russian gas through the Ukrainian GTS?

Why do Americans need a Ukrainian GTS


Since what is in Sleepy Joe's head, even he does not know, let's try to calculate the logic of the actions of the 46th President of America by contradiction. We immediately dismiss, as unsuitable, the option that in this way he is trying to hang the content of this garbage-dump country on the Russian Federation. Aren't you funny yourself? How can a country with a population of 30-35 million be supported with $ 2-3 billion in revenue from the transit of Russian gas to Europe? This money is clearly not enough. For those hungry for bread and circuses, owners of lace panties, this is like a dead poultice. This means that this option is initially wrong. Cross out.

You will also have to reject the option that America is lobbying for the transit of Russian gas through Ukraine in order to support the countries of Central and Eastern Europe, who have stood up to defend Ukrainian transit, pursuing exclusively their own selfish interests. These are countries such as Poland, Hungary, Romania, Czech Republic, Slovakia and the Baltic countries. Moreover, only Hungarians, Romanians and Slovaks have a selfish interest there, the Ukrainian pipe leads directly to them, in the absence of gas in it, they will immediately have problems with delivering it to their own consumers, since Russian gas provides pressure not only in the main, but also in the distribution pipe ... It is not clear what the Czechs are doing there, because they are the beneficiaries of the SP-2 under construction, the ground continuation of which they have already completed from the German hub, which, as a result, will allow them to reduce the cost of the Russian gas they receive due to the shorter transport distance. Austria, mind you, is not on this list, because it only benefits from the SP-2. In principle, I don’t ask what Poland and the Baltic paper tigers are doing there - you always boil for anyone if he is against Russia, even though they themselves are still sitting on the Russian pipe. That even having their own LNG terminals (Poland and Lithuania, in particular), does not prevent them from purchasing gas from the Russian Federation. Typical policy double standards. Russia is bad, but let's get gas! Hence, we also discard this option, because it contradicts sound logic. First, the United States thinks least of all about its junior "partners", no matter how much they lick their shoes. They wanted to spit on these Eastern European beggars. Their lot is to swallow dust from under American hooves and buy expensive "democratic" American LNG. And this is the second thing.

By the way, supplies of American LNG to the European market are also poorly assembled with Ukrainian transit. And although we already know that no American LNG exists in nature, it is not a fact that Sleepy Joe knows it. Maybe his advisers told him that he is.

Why exactly does Biden need Ukrainian transit


What else do we have? Biden's own selfish interest remains, given his family's involvement in gas affairs. Maybe he wants to take part in the privatization of the Ukrainian gas transportation system, or to join a consortium of shareholders (USA-FRG-Ukraine), and then feed the rest of his life (sorry not for long) at the expense of Gazprom? We also do not forget about 4 colossal natural gas storage facilities (underground gas storage facilities, one of which is the largest in Europe), located just on the western borders of Nezalezhnaya. Not only Biden is licking his lips at them, but also European comrades. Therefore, this version is, in principle, working. It would suit us too. But it is not a fact that, for the sake of selfish interest of Biden, the US Congress will pass a new law canceling the sanctions already imposed on SP-2. By the way, the increase in tariffs for local aborigines fits well into this version, then not only the main (GTS), but also the distribution system of Ukraine (GDS) may be of interest for privatization, since it will allow Biden to feed himself not only at the expense of Gazprom, which pays for transit , but also at the expense of the local population, who will not have a choice. If there is a population that will pay according to European tariffs, then the GDS of Ukraine may be of interest to gentlemen of privatizers from Europe. The main thing then is that it does not all scatter to the West, where the tariffs will be the same, and the salaries will be higher. And this is an almost impossible task, since this process has already started (the population is voting with their feet for a good life).

Therefore, I will focus on the last, the only possible version - it is political. Biden needs to keep Ukraine from collapse in order to keep it in a state of confrontation with Russia for as long as possible. He thinks strategically and understands that he will not be able to defeat Russia and Putin in the coming years. The benchmark is 2024. March 17 elections. It is not a fact that they will be able to throw Putin on them. And even if he leaves, it is not a fact that his protégé will not come even worse (especially since he will not leave!). This means that the confrontation between the Russian Federation and the United States will continue. In this confrontation, the United States cannot do without a "torpedo". Who we have here "torpedo", in my opinion, is clear to everyone. To prevent the "torpedo" from being torn apart from the inside by popular anger, it needs to be kept at least warm in the homes of its citizens. And this is impossible without Russian pipeline gas. Exactly pipe, no LNG will help here! Only pumping it from east to west through the main pipeline makes it possible to maintain pressure in the distribution system of Ukraine. The GDS is a logical continuation of the GTS, it is it that ensures the delivery of gas to consumers, including both heat generating and power generating stations. With a reverse flow (from west to east), the eastern regions will remain without gas, and therefore without heat (the existing compressor stations are not designed for this, the main pressure in the network is supported by the Russian Federation). And the agreement between PJSC Gazprom and LLC Operator of the Gas Transmission System of Ukraine was signed for only 5 years, until 2024 inclusive. How to make Putin prolong the agreement on terms favorable to the United States and Ukraine? This is where SP-2 comes to the rescue.

We will see soon whether Putin will agree to play by Biden's rules. In principle, something tells me that he will agree. He thinks pragmatically. European Somalia on its own poorly guarded southern borders with a hungry but armed and extremely aggressive population does not suit him. He could have buried this garbage country a hundred times already, it would have been enough to cut off the supply of coal, gas, diesel fuel and electricity. Within a month, such a country would not have become, and in its place there would have been several territorial entities at war with each other, some of which would immediately be requested to the Russian Federation, some to Poland, Hungary, Romania and Slovakia. But since Putin does not do that, it means that the Kiev regime suits him. In principle, the transit of gas through it also suits him. Simply, the presence of an alternative SP-2 would make the garbage-dump country more accommodating in terms of pricing (payment for services rendered). So why not talk to Biden about this?

    Why did Biden need a Ukrainian GTS

    - Well, well ... - the topic is very extensive and diverse ... - "multi-dark" (there are several topics in it at once) ... - my respect for the author of this topic ...
    - But nevertheless, this "multi-dark" theme can be linked into a rather short definition; namely :

    Weiden starts ... - and Biden wins ...

    - And it's hard not to agree with this ... - personally, I completely agree with this ...

    - Well, if in more detail; then ... then ... then:
    - Here is one of the topics:

    By the way, supplies of American LNG to the European market are also poorly assembled with Ukrainian transit. And although we already know that no American LNG exists in nature, it is not a fact that Sleepy Joe knows it. Maybe his advisers told him that he is.

    - Yes, that's right ... - And that's exactly how I personally wrote in several topics:
    - In the topic "How did Gazprom outplay itself with Nord Stream 2," that:

    - Today the Americans, with their LNG ... are bluffing in black ... and blackmailing Gazprom in black; that, they say, in which case they will overwhelm Europe with their LNG ...
    - Ha, where will they get this gas ??? - Shale mining ??? - Yes, then he will simply become "gold" at cost; and where will they get the required volumes of this shale gas ??? - They will run from point to point and collect this gas ... - in small batches ... - one cylinder here, and another cylinder there ... increasing the already huge production cost ... - And then ... - it is necessary still carry across the ocean (already "in the fraction" LNG) ... - charter ships from the Greeks ... - The whole "move" will take at least 4 weeks (count a month) ... - Well ... they brought it .. - and how much will this LNG cost ??? - Well, first the Americans will "cut the price"; and then the price of this LNG will only grow every time ... - Who will agree to such conditions in Europe ???

    - And also in the subject:

    With the arrival of Biden, Ukraine will have to switch to American coal and LNG

    - Personally, I have also made it clear that ... what ... what:

    - Yes ... there is no American LNG ... - there is nothing for the Americans to make it from in order to supply it to Europe ...

    - There is no point in exaggerating and discussing this topic of the author ... - Everything is quite definite here ...
    - My plus to the author ...

      - Well, the next "topic of this topic" ... is:

      You will also have to reject the option that America is lobbying for the transit of Russian gas through Ukraine in order to support the countries of Central and Eastern Europe, who have stood up to defend Ukrainian transit, pursuing exclusively their own selfish interests. These are countries such as Poland, Hungary, Romania, Czech Republic, Slovakia and the Baltic countries. Moreover, selfish interest there is only among Hungarians, Romanians and Slovaks,

      The states think least of all about their junior "partners", no matter how much they lick their shoes. They wanted to spit on these Eastern European beggars. Their lot is to swallow dust from under American hooves and buy expensive "democratic" American

      - Yes, that's right ... - This is not Russia, which is always ready to "meet everyone" ...
      - And what does Russia have in response ??? - - And here even the old woman Merkel is ready to give up her common sense to please the Americans ...
      In the subject:

      With the arrival of Biden, Ukraine will have to switch to American coal and LNG

      - Personally, I have already written that:

      Europe has long "passed" Gazprom with giblets (especially Germany tried very hard ... - old woman Merkel, who has a pathological hatred of Russia and her "digging");

      - And here the Americans "hit the spot" ...
      - There is no point in continuing this topic ... - and so everything is clear ...

        - Yes, so you can easily and simply continue to "string on the gas pipeline" throughout Ukraine, passing through its territory ...
        - And ... - cheap and angry ... - and by someone else's (Russian) hands ...
        - There is nothing more to go on ...

          We will see soon whether Putin will agree to play by Biden's rules. In principle, something tells me that he will agree.

          - Yes, of course ... - will agree ... - And this "consent" already in full swing marks itself in the fact that the supply of Russian coal and Russian electricity to Ukraine continues at full speed ... - well, + more and gas ... - so .... - What else is needed "the consent of our guarantor" ...

          it means that the Kiev regime suits him. In principle, the transit of gas through it also suits him.

          - Yes, of course ... - it suits ... - First of all, it suits our Russian oligarchs ... - they absolutely do not care ... 0 what is the "regime" in Ukraine ... -fascist; or Bandera; or some other ... - our oligarchs just don't give a damn about it ...

            - Yes, this is quite possible ... - But here Biden can fall into a trap himself ... -Like there in the "folk proverb":
            -
            Greed ruined fr-ra

            - With such seeming lightness ... and accessibility ... for him everything can all at once and suddenly reset to zero ... - Here the game is very difficult and serious ... - then a whole "snake ball" appears at once ... - here and NATO ; and the very lobby of the American LNG; and Russian oligarchs, who may or may not become associates in this matter; and more or less the "leading" president of Ukraine, who will be able to push through the "very tough law" on the sale of Ukrainian land, territory, property ... and so on and so on ...
            - In any case ... - Biden will be able to do this only at the end of a solid period of his presidential term ... - And how will everything turn out there in Ukraine ... - who knows ...
            - So it is this topic (if any) that Biden may have postponed for a year or a year and a half ... - because the agreement on the supply of Russian gas through the territory of Ukraine ... - "still suffers" ...
            - Well, but basically ... - Biden has a very wide field of opportunities in Ukraine (and precisely options with the Ukrainian GTS) and there are practically no obstacles to the implementation of these opportunities ...

    1) I suspect that the author of this opus was greatly offended by Ukraine. Otherwise, instead of pouring fetid bile at her, he would have told readers a little more about the very content of Biden's proposal. In particular, about the mechanism designed to ensure the interests of Ukraine. (I am ready to chew for everyone interested in this issue).
    2) A few days ago, in its investment memorandum on the eve of the bond issue, Gazprom honestly warned investors that the SP-2 project may be suspended or completely terminated due to political pressure, and the company may not return the investment.

    We immediately dismiss, as unsuitable, the option that in this way he is trying to hang the content of this garbage-dump country on the Russian Federation. Aren't you funny yourself?

    What's so funny?

    How can a country with a population of 30-35 million be supported with $ 2-3 billion in revenue from the transit of Russian gas to Europe? This money is clearly not enough.

    First, there are already 23 million people physically living in the territory of the military. This is according to the calculations of the Ukrainian Association of Millers for the current production of flour for domestic consumption in the country. Such calculations are practiced by the UN. When the LDNR recently announced that they have 1,7 million, the UN corrected it, saying that 1,2 million, which follows from the volume of bread production.
    Secondly, 3 billion is certainly not enough. But they are still working and even manage to report on GDP growth. XNUMX billion is the amount that separates the country from the real Maidan. Really popular, not paid, ordered.
    Since the IMF did not issue the tranche, such a Maidan would have taken place now. But, in anticipation of such a turn of events, it was decided to issue OVDPs at attractive interest rates. In the future, this is an additional deepening of the abyss into which the country will collapse. But, on the other hand, not now, a little later.
    Biden is interested in prolonging this agony. Putin by restricting transit (and, ultimately, eliminating gas reverse)
    wants to push the more controlled (by Russia) Medvedchuk (and not Boyko, who also got a pillow) to power on the wave of popular indignation. Then start reformatting the country through federalization.
    And the preservation of transit through the Ukrainian gas transportation system is doubtful. In 2018. a German company conducted an audit and determined the degree of wear of the hydraulic system at 80%. Since then, this figure has not become lower. And the uneven transit, which Russia has been practicing since last year, ruins the GTS even more.
    The modernization of the GTSU will cost more than the laying of the joint venture 3. And this is scary, since without the GTS, almost all of Ukraine will remain without gas. After all, the GDS (gas distribution system) relies on the GTS and cannot exist without it.

    I studied the article 2 times. I did not find a clear thesis in answer to the question "What the hell is Biden and Co. grabbed at UkrGTS". This is an illiquid asset in the future. With the statement of the fact that "But since Putin does not do this, it means that the Kiev regime suits him." we will have to agree, but this is a rather flimsy guarantee to ensure the value of the "Ukrainian-GTS" asset even in the mid-term. A more or less significant asset of UkrGTS will remain only in one single case - if the pure henchmen of "Western capital" come to power in the Kremlin, who will bend the "quasi-rebellious" Russian oligarchs and destroy their "power roof", by analogy with the Soviet 1991 year. And it is not necessary to say that the economy is more primary than high politics, because the Constituent Agreement with the distribution of shares always comes first, and only then investments, not to mention the distribution of net profit following the "conquest". So what is Biden hoping for other than the demolition of the Russian nobility? - there is still no intelligible answer, and the hope for such is ephemeral.

    So why not talk to Biden about this?

    The subject of the conversation is not clear. Biden helps the "torpedo" and his beloved. What is Russia's interest? Keep the "torpedo" directed against it in a viable state?
    "European Somalia on its own poorly guarded southern borders with a hungry, but armed and extremely aggressive population" probably does not suit Europe either, but for some reason it is not offered to pay for it. Let Joe talk to Merkel. How much does she offer them, 2 billion in ransom payments? Let her be milked.

    Everything is much simpler, V.V. Putin follows the path of I.V. Stalin, only slightly revising the concept, it is necessary to modernize the industry of Russia.
    And how to do it painlessly ??? We need technology ...
    We need to play along with the United States, which themselves are on the verge of hyperinflation, you can argue with me or agree with me, but the world economic crises began to recur much more often, it is not surprising how many American rubles have already been printed ??? And how to dispose of them painlessly for the economies, only an economic crisis or a military mess for 5 years,
    Therefore, comrade Biden will destroy the EU, since there are no fools to fight, and in order to destroy the EU, you need to control energy resources .... ,, Europe will have only 2 options, sell technologies on the cheap, and build a new union with Russia from Lisbon to Vladivostok, or turn into a kind of Ukraine ...

    They have a lot of interesting things. One of them gave me my best thing. If I show it to you, won't you take it away?
    “No, I won't even touch her. But I want to see something they do. Take some more meat. And show me your best thing.
    Ayjail rummaged in her skin and pulled out something tightly in her fist. She proudly unclenched her fist: it was light enough for Jason to see a round red bead.
    - Beautiful, isn't it? She asked.
    “Very much,” Jason agreed and felt sadness as he looked at the pitiful trinket.

    Something like this.

    The Kremlin will agree and lie under Biden, otherwise there will be an ax-head to the offshore accounts of the Kremlin's corrupt officials ... How simple it really is!

    This is all speculation, Biden wanted to spit on LNG - this is public, and personal / reality is that all shale deposits of Ukraine are given to Burisma (where Biden's son is working hard) and Shell, and they are located next to the war zone in Donbass (next to Slavyansky, Kramatorsky. Note. After Comrade Strelkov's "excursion" there, their activities were stopped / frozen). Prospects for production at these fields are announced to be good.
    But first, these companies do not have the ability to supply / sell gas to Europe, due to the filling / contracting of the GTS pipe with Russian gas until 2024. (approx. only Russian gas (maintains the pressure in the pipes of the GTS and GDS of Ukraine, if there is no pressure, then both systems are not viable).
    Secondly, after the completion of the SP-2 from 2024. after the termination of the transit of Russian gas, the pressure in the pipes of the GTS and GDS will drop to zero, but even this will not allow the American-British companies to export gas to Europe through the Ukrainian GTS, since there will not be enough gas volumes and pressure for transportation. Therefore, Biden has his own personal / pocket interest here, and therefore he asks Putin to maintain transit through Ukraine and put US-British gas into the pipeline to gradually replace Russian gas as production increases.
    So - nothing personal - just "democracy".
