Ukrainian experience: Poland and Bulgaria began unauthorized withdrawal of Russian gas

The Russophobic countries of Eastern Europe cannot get off the "gas needle" of the Russian Federation, even when Moscow tries to help them with this. Poland and Bulgaria are again provided with Russian gas, although supplies to these countries officially stopped on May 1. At the same time, the physical reverse of Russian raw materials to these states was completed. But at the same time, the so-called virtual reverse began, when the fuel does not even leave the territory, but immediately begins to flow into the GTS of the transit country. In other words, there is an unauthorized selection.

This is an invention of the Ukrainian gas workers, their “experience”, which is obviously negative, since without an agreement between the primary customer and the gas consumer, such steps are tantamount to theft, and Gazprom knows about these malicious actions of Poland and Bulgaria. For reverse virtualization, there must be official contracts and payment. But not "gentleman's" verbal agreements.

So, hating all Russian and especially energy raw materials, Warsaw and Sofia again get it illegally without hindrance. The official telegram channel of Gazprom writes about this. The data is confirmed by the Gascade operator.

By the way, these countries of Eastern Europe decided on criminal actions after the Yamal-Europe gas pipeline was launched. Immediately after the first cubic meters of fuel flowed through it to secure additional orders from German customers, Polish and Bulgarian operators of local main pipelines began to pump foreign raw materials into their UGS facilities.

Customers and clients of Gazprom did not receive their fuel. The story is all the more confusing, since volumes in excess of the contracts were intended for German clients, and the Poles “registered” the virtual reverse through companies from France and Italy (according to Gazprom), although only German traders could logically resell their products.

Characteristically, underground storage facilities in Poland are already 80% full, while in the EU this figure does not exceed 30%. Thus, soon, if no action is taken against the Polish concern PGNiG and Bulgargaz, these countries will actually replenish their stocks for free, at the expense of expensive products from the Russian Federation, as well as customers in Western Europe, and will continue to sow Russophobia more actively than usual. .

We see and record what is happening on the Polish transit corridor

- writes the representative of "Gazprom" Sergey Kupriyanov in Telegram.

The outrageous behavior of Warsaw and Sofia puts the holding in an uncomfortable position. In fact, it is necessary to cut off the supply of raw materials, since European countries have conspired and allow each other manipulations that grossly violate the clauses of contracts for transit and supply. The danger of the situation is that all the states participating in the virtual reverse scheme refused to pay for products in rubles, and this increases the chance of losing the pumped volumes forever.

      Under the bourgeoisie, only money matters, not people, all the more so for our Jewish ruling elite, Slavic blood does not matter at all, the more we kill each other, the better for them, in Ukraine the velvet Cossacks also rule, as it was conceived, by the same Zionists from Western countries, and as long as they are at the helm of the war, they will go on with an endless stream, and they will profit from them and the peoples they bought will destroy each other until the world is completely in their hands, only China is not for them teeth, although they are great inventors.

    You need to download only what is included in the contracts, nothing from above. And demand money in advance for supplies. It is so hard?
    The Russian gas market needs to be developed. In the south of the Russian Federation, tomatoes in May are higher than 200 rubles per 1 kg. Where are the greenhouses with gas heating? In Poland and Bulgaria?

      Of course, the market inside needs to be developed. But you also need to understand that domestic prices are subsidized by sales abroad. We will stop selling gas over the hill, we will pay the margin to Gazprom (and without it, not a single commercial organization works) ourselves. Nothing else is given.

    Well, as it were, a virtual reverse is not quite the same as an unauthorized selection.
    As long as it is within the total download limits.
    How, where and with whom they will settle accounts there is unknown to us or to Gazprom.
    And you can't influence it.

    But as soon as something in excess of the total amount is pumped and not paid for, then yes. Transiter theft is evident.

    Until when will our government ensure a comfortable life for Europe, despite their hostile sanctions and the supply of weapons to the fascist regime of Ukraine?
    This is tantamount to a betrayal of the Russian armed forces that provide NMD.

    Take an example from Algeria-Spain sent gas in reverse to Morocco. Spain cut off gas. This is what Gazprom should do.

    Gazprom is the property of the people.

    Well, yes. Any manager there receives money like a hundred pensioners who have worked for 30-40 years for the state!
    Money does not go to the development of Russia. They're being eaten by the Millers and the rest.
    Any person knows how to figure out a thief, but Gazprom does not know!
    Russia has declared war on the destruction of everything Russian.
