Erdogan accepted Putin's proposal to create the largest gas hub in Turkey


Recep Tayyip Erdogan welcomed Vladimir Putin's idea of ​​creating a gas hub in Turkey, which could play an important role in providing blue fuel to European consumers.


I agreed with Putin on the creation of a gas hub in Turkey

– said the Turkish President to the media.

Erdogan said that he had given all the necessary orders to start work in this direction without delay. The most convenient place for the hub will be Thrace, a region in the European part of Turkey. At the same time, the President of the country stressed that all relevant security measures would be taken when creating an international gas distribution center.

Previously, within the framework of the Russian economic Weeks” Putin spoke about the possibility of creating a major gas hub in Turkey to replace Germany. Such steps are due to the aggravation political the situation in Europe in connection with the Ukrainian crisis, which led to a decrease in Russian gas supplies through the Baltic gas pipeline and transit through the territory of Ukraine. The situation has also aggravated in connection with sabotage against the Nord Streams.

Along with this, the Russian president recalled the need to develop the Power of Siberia and other gas pipelines. Putin stressed that the Russian Federation will supply its energy resources to where they are expected.

    Germans - fiery greetings!
    Previously, the Turks went to them to earn money - but now it is possible that the opposite will happen.

      It is called - diversification , and along the way, this is the process of involving Turkey in the sphere of influence of Russia, and regardless of the contradictions between the countries, whatever they may be.

      Donkey, loaded with bags of money (gas), did his job yes

    If the Nord Streams were built by those who need gas, the same Germans, for example, the safety of gas pipelines would increase significantly.
    If Europe needs gas, and, accordingly, a hub in Turkey, let them build it with their own money.
    And for one thing, the Nord Streams are being repaired.
    Stop acting and acting like a colony.
    We still worry about their problems more than they do.
    Everyone has to wipe their own ass.

    apparently the kidok of the West with Spotokami did not teach Putin anything, he lost up to 5-7 billion (for SP2) and ... wrote off at a loss. he is again ready to step on the rake, this time the rake of a Turk, one of the sponsors of ISIS and the six US Zionists, instead of building a fleet of LNG tankers and building factories for industrial goods, including to reduce the raw material component in Russian exports

    It is not economically profitable to build new gas lines to Turkey for the Russian Federation, only costs. There are no and are not expected consumers of Russian gas in Europe. LNG is supplied to the EU, so we need to build LNG carriers. The LNG vessel is free to choose by the consumer.
    From a political point of view, Putin's move is correct, it creates uncertainty in decisions for NATO, brings confusion to the countries of the NATO bloc. Strengthens negotiation ties with Turkey.
    Whether there will be a gas hub in Turkey or not, or maybe in 2040, it is not known, but it is known for sure that negotiations are already underway, Turkey has given the go-ahead. For all political and economic issues, the answer lies with Ukraine.
    The state of Ukraine must cease to exist. The entire territory of Ukraine should return to Russia, in the form of regions and republics. Russia will strengthen its economic and military-political influence in the world, there will be direct access to European countries. The northwestern part of the Black Sea will belong to Russia. The oil and gas blackmail of the Russian Federation, by the countries of the NATO bloc, will cease to be relevant. The disappearance of Ukraine will lead to the curtailment of the topic of Ukraine in the international arena, and it will quickly come to naught.
