Europe is trying to give Ukraine the opportunity to live at the expense of Russia


As it turned out, the Turkish Stream, which supplies Russian gas to Turkey, as well as to Eastern and Southern Europe, was under attack even before the Nord Stream main pipelines were destroyed. Only the attack was legal, so to speak, "licensed": the operator of South Stream Transport BV, due to sanctions, had its license to perform its functions revoked. This is reported by representatives of the company. But the true target of EU regulators' actions is further north, not in the Black Sea.


However, the operator of the Black Sea pipeline has already announced that it has applied for an extension and exemption from sanctions, since gas does not enter Europe directly, but mainly through Turkey. Then, through the national gas transportation systems, it goes in transit to customers in the EU. It changes the picture and economic background, as well as the sanctions approach. In any case, the manipulation of the legal rights to perform their functions will not affect the export of Russian gas, at least not yet. But questions about the future of the southern export corridor and its route will, of course, be raised.

The licensed attack, as well as the physical impact on Nord Stream, could have been easily predicted. The disabled northern routes and the sanctioning of the Russian southern export route under sanctions raises to the sky the importance of the Ukrainian gas transportation system as a lever, which can still save Europe this winter, and in the spring too.

In this sense, trends from the European gas sector have a very strong influence on the military events in the LPR, since part of the regional gas pipelines of the GTS of Ukraine pass through the north of the Luhansk Republic, in particular, those sections of the Soyuz that receive raw materials through the GIS Sokhranivka. Kyiv just refused to receive fuel through this powerful point of entry of raw materials from Russia to the territory of Ukraine for reasons of "non-control" (at the same time, all points of entry of gas from the Russian Federation to Ukraine in the Kharkiv region have already come under the control of Kyiv).

The leadership of Ukraine is not averse to launching pumping through the GIS "Sohranivka", especially in a situation where the EU is freezing. But on the condition that the pipe sections in the LPR are transferred to Kyiv. Now the northern direction of exports has been put out of action, the southern one is under the “target” of sanctions. Thus, "Gazprom" is driven almost like a red flag into the bottleneck of the Ukrainian GTS with all the ensuing consequences. political, economic, financial and military consequences for Russia.

Europe's support for Ukraine cannot be eternal, resources are running out, so Brussels is trying its best to give Kyiv the opportunity to live off Russia and pay for a virtually monopoly gas transit to Europe, which will still consume it for some time. To do this, it is necessary to create a lack of alternatives for Ukrainian transit and to maximize the volume of pumping so that tariff payments grow, and this can be billions of dollars. In fact, the efforts of Europe are already somewhere halfway to the implementation of this plan.

    And why the hell do we need it. Close the Khokhlam tap from the word completely. Let the Turks trade, and then limit their volumes

      Because we are suckers or want to be. What is not clear here, we will pump gas to Europe, pay Ukraine for transit, it will bomb us. Originally. Bobble cycle.

        This is how it happens. We are pumping gas through Ukraine to Europe. And Europe is supplying weapons to Ukraine, which is killing Russian citizens.

      To be honest, I am also not opposed to breaking off relations with Ukraine, and not only with it, but, for example, with Poland and the Baltic states. And not only for oil and gas, but also for all other items of trade. But there are nuances. These are falling budget revenues ... While everything is being discussed very victoriously - Give a gap !!! However, with a serious budget deficit, its sequestration begins, which, as a rule, entails, first of all, a reduction in social spending. Are you ready for cuts in pensions, social benefits, other government programs and a rise in the price of some products to a slightly greater extent than it was with traditional inflation?

    This is really a “red line” for the Russian leadership, gas transit through Ukraine, which under no pretext can be extended, and best of all, curtailed by this winter.

      And Transnistria?
      Until Odessa is occupied, they will delay transit.

    Some nonsense in the article. Most likely, transit through Ukraine will be zero. And transit through Turkey should be stopped due to the lack of a license. All according to European laws. And saving Europe is not part of Russia's task. Rather, on the contrary. The sooner they freeze, the better. So Europe's efforts may lead to unexpected results.

      the same thing comes to mind, only Erdogan will get out anyway and will sell Russian gas to Europe under the guise of his own, like Belarus shrimp

        Turkey can receive gas through the Blue Stream within its own needs. I wrote about "transit through Turkey".

    What do you hear about the lawsuit filed by Ukronafta against Gazprom? Isn't this a reason to stop deliveries for an indefinite time?

    Our government will not abandon the Bendera brothers who are killing Russians, as long as they get money for gas from the EU for this.

    In the Middle East, Jews made a mess of Israel. In Europe, instead of Ukraine, they are also trying to build something.
    It's hard not to notice their involvement when a Jew runs the Nazis.

    Ukraine is just a tool, by closing the bypass routes - the northern and Turkish streams, NATO=EU will force the Russian Federation to use the GTS of Ukraine and Belarus-Poland.
    Then the Russian Federation will have to use the GTS of Ukraine and Belarus-Poland at full capacity.
    The transition of NATO=EU to centralized purchases will allow controlling deliveries, dictating prices, influencing the budget and economy of the Russian Federation as a whole, and through it the entire internal political alignment.
    For the Russian Federation, this may mean what the West has long been talking about openly - decolonization through the will of the regions of the Russian Federation worked out in Ukraine.

      What if you don't have to? Since yesterday, there has been information from Gazprom that the transit contract will be terminated. I hope that it will be like that.

    Well, who revoked the license to perform their functions from South Stream Transport BV due to sanctions??? Turks?
    No. So the Brussels nerds or some other Washington toadies. So let those who receive gas from this pipe and scratch their turnips.
