European Parliament: Ukraine has a key role in Europe’s energy supply

68
Against the background of the protests and the search for an Islamist who shot visitors to the Christmas fair, who met at the European Parliament in Strasbourg, as it turns out, they are more concerned about a completely different "problem". They have the task of trying to thwart the plans to build the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline - to actually take another step against the interests of the Europeans themselves.


European Parliament: Ukraine has a key role in Europe’s energy supply


We are talking about the resolution adopted by the European parliamentarians. The text of this resolution itself calls the construction of “SP-2” not an economic, but a political project of Moscow. Also announced "Key role" Of Ukraine in the power supply of Europe. The European Parliament finally declared that it opposes the construction of the gas pipeline. This position was supported by 433 MP EP, 105 voted against, another 30 people abstained.

Washington was invisibly present at the voting ... It is the United States that is promoting the supply of its liquefied natural gas to the European continent at prices that are at least a third higher than the prices of gas supplied to Europeans from Russia. If Europe were truly independent, then we can assume that the voting results in the EP would be completely different.

Meanwhile, the implementation of the project "Nord Stream-2" continues. At the same time, less and less time remains before the expiration of the “gas” treaty between Ukraine and Russia. It expires in 2019. Against this background, it became known that the Europeans raised the price of gas for Ukraine, bringing it to an absolute record for all recently - almost 340 dollars per 1 thousand cubic meters.

    That's the problem, let Ukraine and it produces gas for Geyroppa itself! She herself buys gas from her by reverse! What are they smoking there in this Geyparlat?

      It is the United States that is promoting the supply of its liquefied natural gas to the European continent at prices that are at least a third higher than the prices of gas supplied to Europeans from Russia.

      It should be noted that according to the laws of the market - under the monopoly position of the United States on the supply of liquefied gas to Europe (without Russian gas) - American gas prices are bound to rise even more.

      That is also why Europe is striving withto protect the supply of at least some amount of cheap gas from Russia through Ukraine. The European Union thinks that it will be able to get on the Christmas tree - and it’s impossible to rip off its knees. Will not work!

      Well, stop Russia from building a SP-2 in 2019. the contract with Ukrainians ends, build a terminal on the border with Ukraine to set a price and let Ukrainians pump and sell them further.

        It is against this that our gas workers are opposed. Since when you have a single buyer, he dictates the price, and if there are several of them, then you have a choice. (from Ukraine gas is supplied to several countries)

          But I don’t understand this. If you do not assume someone’s personal vested interests, then: do these few countries need gas? Yes I need it! Are we ready to sell them? Yes! Is there a problem in Ukraine? Yes. Let them deal with her! Throughout this long history of deliveries to Europe, there has always been some lack of understanding that raises suspicions of insincerity on the part of our gas workers.

          There are two buyers and sellers in the market, you don't want to take them, go without pants. And then there are the owners or patrons of the buyer who also desperately need this product. And Russia has a trump card in the form of SP-1 and Turkish Stream. Buying LNG from Americans is also risky and more expensive, and logistics makes itself felt. "Brothers" were also stubborn at the beginning, and now they would be happy, but South Stream has switched to the Turkish Stream. And here not Bulgarians but Germany.

      Normally they smoke everything. Where else will they find such eccentrics in the letter um, so that while they are transiting gas, they, Europeans, also buy this gas?
      Moreover, at the same time, one must please the Light of Democracy. Part of the "American" LNG, bought by amers in Yamal and sold to Europeans, sharovarniki and will be driven to compensate for their costs.

      They smoke pointers from the USA. Twist it with a tube and puff on a puff in a circle. Judging by the decisions made, it is not childish to "insert" them from these tubes, since they assign Urkaina a key role in the energy supply of Europe. Those 105 non-smoking EP deputies who voted "against" understand that the key role is still for Russia, which produces the very gas that burns in Europe's gas burners.

      in the news today I heard this phrase and ofigel. This is Ukraine, pumping Russian gas and no other. Direct deliveries without intermediaries from the Russian Federation - this is the key point of supply security, especially considering the regime’s stability in Ukraine and so on. The one who wrote this is either completely cuckoo, or these are political games. In both cases, Europeans spoil their reputation and in general

    the question is not what the European Parliament adopted there, but what this decision means for practical Germans, because this stream is built mainly for them ... in principle, if companies from Europe, tied in some way, want to complete the construction and start receiving interest from the stream , they will sell anyway, scoring on the "parliamentarians" or simply buying, which is most likely what the "honest" and "incorruptible"

      The speculation is political, a lot of money has already been invested there, and Germany is already building a terminal for SP-2. So money is considered not only in the states and in the outskirts, the market and nothing personal. The European company is no longer reluctant to incur losses due to the constant theft of gas, which fell on the shoulders of the supplier and buyer. It’s extremely expensive to buy gas at the market price, they will spoil until they turn blue, but this will not hurt the SP-2 gas agreement. Now they will be left with this pipe for their purchased gas, they will want to steal, let them steal from themselves and do it, genetics ...... smile

              Most European parliamentarians, in fact, are collaborators - US appointees, who carry out a policy in Europe to dismantle the sovereignty of European countries, leading them to management from a single center, which will be subordinate to the legislative, judicial and financial systems of Europe. So they do not shoot at their own foot, but at the feet of Europe, with the aim of filling the old woman tightly so that she would not be able to rise, turning her into a resigned US colony. I must admit that this is good for mattresses, and it is obvious to everyone that Europe can hardly independently make a single decision in its favor.

    Ukraine has a key role in European energy supply
    On the basis of terry Russophobia, the Europeans completely lost their brains (did they have it before?), And to support the fascist regime and once again hit Russia, they are ready to do anything even at a loss to themselves. The same thing was observed before 2 MB, when the Anglo-Saxons supported Hitler, and Europe licked his fifth point. How it all ended is well known today as if Europeans did not want to rewrite history for themselves. Here, persuasion and appeals to the mind will not help.

    Yes, we are fine, and the Nord Stream and pipelines through Ukraine, the main thing in this direction is to supply gas to the Europeans on the border of Russia and Ukraine, let the Europeans deal with theft on the territory of Gulyai-Pole, and we can supply liquefied gas, cheaper than the Naglo-Saxons, I really think that the Americans will buy our gas and resell it to the Europeans with the same gas carriers.

        After the end of the agreement with Ukraine on gas transit through its territory, I propose to conclude a new agreement on transit to the border of Russia and Ukraine, let the Europeans pay for the transit of Ukrainians, if they so want to support the "brotherly, offended by Russia" country, that's how much Ukraine will put out, let that is how much it pays, we charge only for the supplied gas according to the meter at the border, let the consumers take on the rest, such as control over the theft of gas from pipelines and storage facilities,

    The solution to the problem of gas supplies to the Europope, even if they suppose that there is sp2, as you correctly noted above, is a purchase on the Russian border. And that’s it! There are holes in the ukrotrub or not on the drum, if you can, you have to make money and if you have no money, or with anyone there. After all, this decision lies on the surface, someone started inventing a bicycle, of course it is clear that they want to ensure the volume of supplies, but the wigs themselves are trying to prevent this. Damn them, let them resolve the situation.

    This is absurd when Kraine was assigned a key role in energy supply, and Russia, as it were, had nothing to do with it. And I wonder why Russia does not rely on the disrepair of its infrastructure, which provides gas supply in the direction of Ukraine? Maybe it makes sense to talk about attracting the West in financing such a shabby gas supply armature, the life of which ends in 2019. Cho wait or am I missing a bluff? In my opinion, one can already prepare the ungrateful West for a gas shortage due to a reorientation to China.

    You would be so worried about the Russians collecting deadwood. You don’t care, well, they don’t need our cheap gas. Let China sell more, they pay good money.

    Against this background, it became known that the Europeans raised the price of gas for Ukraine, bringing it to an absolute record for the last time - almost 340 dollars per 1 thousand cubic meters.

    it's like?

    It was more expensive than for Germany with a smaller shoulder.
    Our way, they also write that a record 324 dollars for imported gas (with much smaller volumes, because when it is 40 billion, with its 20, and maybe 12 and 10 of its own ...)

    European Parliament: Ukraine has a key role in Europe’s energy supply

    That's right - Europe sells Russian gas to Ukraine by reverse to tri-roads, and then they buy gas for their money!

    Turn off the tap and show who has a key role and who has a role such as an empty pipe.

    In the event that the transit of Russian gas through Ukraine ceases, it is useless to consider the possibility of bankruptcy of Ukraine, the probability is 101%. Americans will have to seriously invest, but they are usually used to doing everything with the wrong hands.

    I don’t understand why. Why not say that the agreement with ukroreykh will not be extended. Europeans themselves will lay these pipes.

    Gasify your own country completely by setting adequate prices for the population and business. Turn to face the country, and not to the aspirations of the oligarchs for free earnings from squandering our own resources. And to trade gas with Asia ... well, or with those who really think with their own heads, and not at the direction of Washington. When we become tough and consistent in upholding our interests, otherwise we walk like an elephant from a cartoon and we all hate: excuse me, excuse me, express deep concern ...
