Comments on: The EU may soon have Gazprom and Vladimir Putin running on fumes http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/05/01/the-eu-may-have-gazprom-and-putin-running-on-fumes/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Forkbeard http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/05/01/the-eu-may-have-gazprom-and-putin-running-on-fumes/#comment-1040609 Mon, 11 May 2015 17:42:12 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=40036#comment-1040609 EU lapdog members including Poland and the Baltics should be turned off Russian gas.

No international law is in place to allow regional customers to resell gas intended for them alone.

This is yet another reminder that the true motive behind the Ukrainian mess is to find a way to make Russia into an obedient raw materials supplier to the EU.

Just say no.

Putin wins at home when he fights abroad.

It will be winter, possibly a very hard freeze or blizzard in Europe, or just after such weather conditions. Putin will cause gas supplies to be interrupted to Europe, perhaps just for a short time. That will, in his mind, give him the price leverage he needs because Europe will be begging him for the gas at that moment. But smart Europeans better be investing hard *subito* in both a bolstered military preparedness and seriousness, as well as energy independence from Russia, otherwise Putin will rightly smell weakness and he will attack.

There are many.countries in Eu, which have different priorities and interests, Russia is a single nation. Eu countries don’t have single stance even in much easier achievable goals as to combat with the illegal immigration.Russia is producer of gas, most of the European countries are importers. There is no any serious alternative to the Russian gas, and relations with Russia aren’t confined only to gas and oil. One day Putin will go, but whoever replaces him will defend interests of Russia. It’s a very small probability that RuSsia will be ruled for a long by person putting priorities of his country behind those of foreign countries or personal ones. Putin is a strong politician defending interests of his country, whichever methods he uses. Finally, Russia is a nation with strong imperial traditions, not a puppet state as Saudi Arabia or Bahrain

And the Eu does well to impose sanctions based on its laws to foreign companies who want to operate on its territory. Much rather Greece than Chechnya…

That way Europe will be able purchase gas from whoever they want.

Take the gas to turkey and grease. You know why those countries are getting kicked out and excluded from the EU? Because they don’t have any money. And they never will. The people there barely work. Good luck in your rich new markets, Russia :)
