Why does Moscow need Pakistan Stream without Russian gas


Russia and Pakistan signed an agreement on the construction of the Pakistan Stream gas pipeline. Tellingly, the gas through this pipeline will not be Russian, but our country will receive significant benefits from the implementation of the project.


Pakistan, with its 216 million people, is today one of the poorest countries in the world. Nevertheless, it is one of the ten countries with the highest economic growth rate (4% per year). If Islamabad can maintain this trend, its GDP per capita by 2050 will almost catch up with Poland and even overtake the Netherlands. However, in order to fulfill this ambitious task, the country will need a lot of energy, with which Pakistan has problems.

Attempts to build a gas pipeline from Iran have been made since the 80s, but thanks to the "efforts" of the Americans, they all failed miserably. The idea of ​​laying a pipe from Turkmenistan was also unsuccessful.

And so, this year Russia decided to come to the aid of Pakistan. It was decided to build the Pakistani Stream gas pipeline exclusively on the territory of the country, and gas will be supplied to it in liquefied form from Qatar, since it is unprofitable to drive the Russian pipeline from the Arctic.

However, our country and Qatar have already solved the "logistics problem". So, Doha will "give" its gas to us for supplies to Pakistan, and in exchange Moscow will "give" its gas to Qatar for supplies to Europe and Asia.

The Russian share in the Pakistani project is 26%. Moscow will receive the same share of income from the operation of the gas pipeline.

But that's not all. At the beginning of the year, our country signed a number of contracts with Pakistan for the supply of various types of weapons, which is also important. After the consolidation of Russia in this South Asian country will allow us to control the situation in Afghanistan, where new risks of destabilization arise in connection with the withdrawal of the American contingent.

    I looked at the map - a complicated scheme. On paper - profit, but how it will actually be unknown. They also shouted about the Power of Siberia, but in reality there were only losses. According to the media. I would not be too happy for the country ahead of time, and officials and managers are definitely happy with such a project.

      - - This also applies to the Power of Siberia gas pipeline, about which I personally wrote so much ... as an onerous and unprofitable gas pipeline for Russia (and the project as a whole) ... and about which our media and some site inhabitants ... in fact it turned out ... it turned out ... turned out ... for Russia a project that is constantly "on vacation" and constantly in a "period of inactivity" for "technical" reasons; to put it mildly ... - not working project ...

    Why does Moscow need Pakistan Stream without Russian gas

    - Pfff ... - Who just came up with such a ... porn_nog_graph_iche_xiy script ???
    - Why is this all ??? - Russia that ... - wants to be in the place of Ukraine ??? - And to supply gas through "someone else's pipe" ???
    - So and so; Russia will find itself in an even more difficult position than Ukraine; since Ukraine supplies Russian gas (foreign gas) through its own pipe and through its territory ...
    - And Russia will allegedly supply "someone else's gas" through "someone else's pipe" and through "someone else's territory" ... - Moreover, the region is not entirely stable and rather tense in relation to the likelihood of military conflicts ...
    - But how civilized and disciplined Pakistan is in fulfilling its obligations to Russia ... - all this will have to be checked (and checked "on itself") by Russia itself ...
    As for Qatar, who also became an accomplice in this enchanting deal; then he was much more fortunate ... he will have to depend only on Russian gas supplies from "disciplined Russia" ... - In this respect, Ukraine is also lucky ...
    - It is very strange that Russia is simply seeking difficulties for itself literally out of the blue ...

    so they unsubscribed the patriots, once again rejoicing for the contracts of Russia wassat

    Catch the minus, don't be sad!

    The Power of Siberia ", about which (which) I personally wrote so much

    They also shouted about the Power of Siberia, but in reality there were only losses

    wassat analytics emo communists

    In fact, if Grudinin or Platoshkin had a sexual organ, or at least one became president and a second prime minister, we would have already built communism.

    Pitriots, what does your analyst say about the Amur GPP? The power of Siberia is a loss-making project, right? wassat Gorenin, you need to draw more points, it's more mysterious. Stalevar, well, I don't know what to advise you - try rolling, as usual)

    You are best. Both, two at once.

    - Not . well, you must ... - Here ... here ... here are two lightweight figurants - that's who you can really say about - "both, two" ... ... - Especially one; who is struggling to mimic a "brutal man"; imagining himself here as a local dominant ... - But in reality ... - constantly peeking out from under ... - or rather, because of the site's bath (hiding behind) "banning" ... how Ukraine is hiding behind a worn-out American veil ... - He should steam up the brooms; yes, the bath gangs to serve ... - it would be quite decent and according to the rank he would have ... but he here keeps trying to be clever ... such a hero ...
    - Not a single argument ... - not a single argument (after all, for this you also need to have brains) ... - only sheer vulgar speculation on "patriotic motives" ... - Favorite provocative position of a not very brave man ...
    - This position is disgustingly primitive ...
    - Here she is ... - just screaming at once: "Aaaa, so you are against ours !!!" ; and then add: "Help ... they beat our people !!!" ... - And so ... - this little man can easily (among those like him) be known as a "heroic" ... - For this and the whole calculation ...
    - Damn ... -There even the Pug in the fable of I.A.Krylov looks more honest and brave ...
