"If it is beneficial for someone, it is only for Ukraine itself": European experts comment on Avakov's statement about possible sabotage on the gas pipeline

32

The European press continues to comment on the information on the completion of the construction of the first string of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline and on the refusal of the Biden administration to impose sanctions against the SP-2. One of the topics for discussion among European experts was the statement of the Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine Arsen Avakov. Earlier, Voennoye Obozreniye reported that Avakov had announced "possible sabotage and terrorist attacks on a gas pipeline running through Ukraine." At the same time, according to the head of the Ukrainian Ministry of Internal Affairs, "it will be beneficial to the Russian aggressor, who will say: you see, and we warned you, so we need to let all the gas through SP-2."

In the European media space, it is noted that "sabotage" on the Ukrainian gas transportation system, if anyone can be beneficial, it is only for Ukraine itself. At the same time, it is indicated that under the "wing" of Avakov, who is a political "long-liver" in the Ukrainian cabinet of ministers, there are numerous national battalions. And among these natsbats there are those who are distinguished by their radicalism.



In other words, even in Europe they understand that the terrorist attack on the Ukrainian gas pipeline can be committed by Avakov's people themselves, in order to then announce the "invasion of Russia" in order not only to attract attention, but also to request compensation for the restoration of the entire gas transportation system. And the Ukrainian GTS has long been in need of modernization, but only funds from the treasury are not allocated for this. In case of sabotage, Europe, claiming support, will have to allocate such funds to Ukraine.

Expert Jonathan Brunson, specializing in Russian-Ukrainian issues, asks the question: "Is it fair for Russia to actually finance the Ukrainian army by pumping gas through the Ukrainian gas transportation system to Europe?" He notes that Russia in any case will rely on "SP-2", since in this case Ukraine will have less and less income from gas transit, and, accordingly, less money can go to military needs.

At the same time, Europe notes that Russia itself will not completely abandon Ukrainian transit, so as "not to lead relations with the West to a dead end."

      What does politics have to do with it? The West is constantly accusing Russia of using energy weapons. Whoever smelled, he smelled. It is the West that uses the energy club around the world to press the rebellious.
      Economically, it is more profitable for Russia and Germany to supply gas through the joint venture. Why don't the rest of the West want to work at a loss? Why don't they want to support Nazi Ukraine?

        And here is politics?

        Despite the fact that the paradigm of the West is breaking - “The New World Order will be built against Russia, on the ruins of Russia and at the expense of Russia.” In this case, the element drops out - “At the expense of Russia,” which means everything collapses! Sadness.

          These are no longer double standards, but ten. International law and treaties are dead. The right of the strong remained. Who is stronger is right. The free market, competition, freedom of speech, democratic elections and values, and democracy itself are all lies, invented to rob the population. Democracy died when Ivan the Terrible moved the Veche Bell from Veliky Novgorod to Moscow. And was there any democracy there? The only place where there was a semblance of democracy was Sparta. But even there, weak children were thrown into the abyss. Democracy is a lie in a beautiful wrapper.

            There was no democracy in Sparta, as it is interpreted now))
            There was an oligopoly, a plutocracy, call it whatever you like) but the "worthy democratic" rulers of Sparta could be nominated only (!) By respected (read, influential) families)

                On the topic of the article.
                If it comes to the interests of Europe itself, then there are no fools. Everyone there perfectly understands that Avakov's message about possible Russian sabotage on the Ukrainian gas pipeline - Ukrainian provocation, threat and blackmail of Europe directed against SP-2.

        And why do they measure everything with themselves? As if Russia has no mind of its own!

        Ukrainian transit has become problematic only now, since 2014, the gas wars of 2009 are a prelude. And before it was profitable and necessary, it brought profit and did not interfere with anyone, on the contrary, it filled the Russian budget in difficult times.

        The difficulties turned political. A change of leadership in Kiev to a pro-Russian one is quite possible. It is not even necessary to include Ukraine for this ... There "Wedding in Malinovka" is an unfading classic. The power changes again, then the reds will enter, then the whites.

        And so, at the helm of the conditional Medvedchuk or suddenly a "people's president" as in Donetsk or Lugansk. Nobody expected Crimea, but it happened. And the gas pipeline is again in reliable hands of the Kremlin or its proxy ... Why break your own? It will come in handy.

        In fact, VVP is famous for not making rash decisions. He is sometimes criticized for the lack of adventurism and long-term planning, but he, as an experienced fighter, does not miss strong blows either.

      Why are Petrov and Gavril doing sabotage on the Ukrainian GTS? Eats Yuuzhni stream and eats SP2. Petrov will simply open more valves on one and the other stream, and on the Ukrainian one, he will close it. Environmentally and smart, and if Avgayan thinks that Petrov and Gavrilo are fools, he is greatly mistaken. I can believe the monkey and the cow this story about podriva Ukrainian GTS, there is no ice.

      Finally, some Western experts have decided to tell the truth about Ukraine and those who rule it today on a command from Washington. And after unfounded claims to Germany and practically insulting Merkel, you look and the Germans will finally speak frankly.

      A gas pipeline exploded near Ivano-Frankivsk. Strangely enough, this coincided with Avakov's statement (June 5) about the terrorist attacks on the GTS.

        Apparently, this explosion is not manual, but technogenic. Why blow up a pipe laid in the ground, if literally next to it it goes to the top and is laid on top of the ground? Now is the beginning of summer, the soils are weak. saturated with water + deterioration of communications, so it exploded. But yes, I must admit - coincided with the topic Yes

        Judging by the pipe diameter, this is a local gas pipeline, not a GTS ...

      It is not surprising if a couple of carts with machine guns and idiots in embroidered shirts come to the gas pipe. After singing the national anthem of Ukraine, a section of the gas pipeline will be blown up. This is not a fantasy, but a very real picture.
