The full text of the appeal of Vladimir Putin to the heads of European countries purchasing Russian gas

73

Russian President Vladimir Putin sent a letter to the heads of European countries purchasing Russian gas in which he reported on “possible consequences for gas transit” to Europe in connection with Kiev’s debts. The full text of the appeal is published by ITAR-TASS.






In recent months, the economy of Ukraine is rapidly deteriorating. The decline in industry and construction is deepening. The budget deficit is growing. The state of the monetary sphere is sharply worsening, the outflow of capital from the country has been added to the negative trade balance. The economy of Ukraine is approaching a default, a halt in production and an explosive increase in unemployment.


Russia and the European Union countries are the largest trade partners of Ukraine. Based on this, at the Russia-EU summit held in late January, we agreed with our European partners to hold consultations on the development of the Ukrainian economy, bearing in mind the interests of Ukraine and our countries in the formation of integration unions with its participation. However, all attempts by the Russian side to start real consultations did not bring results.


Instead of consultations, we hear calls to lower the contract prices of Russian gas, which are supposedly of a “political nature”. It seems that the European partners want to unilaterally shift the consequences of the Ukrainian economic crisis to Russia.


From the very first day of the existence of an independent Ukraine, Russia has supported the stability of the Ukrainian economy by supplying gas at low prices. In January, 2009, with the participation of Prime Minister Tymoshenko, signed a contract for the sale and purchase of natural gas in 2009-2019, which settled the supply and payment of gas and guaranteed its uninterrupted transit through the territory of Ukraine. And which Russia strictly observes. By the way, then the Minister of Fuel and Energy of Ukraine was Y. Prodan - he still occupies a similar post in the Kiev government.


The volume of natural gas supplied to Ukraine in accordance with this contract amounted to 2009-2014. (first quarter) 147,2 billion cubic meters I would like to emphasize - the “price formula”, fixed in the contract, has never changed since then. And Ukraine, up to August 2013, regularly paid for gas in accordance with this formula.


Another thing is that after the signing of the contract, Russia provided Ukraine with a number of unprecedented benefits and discounts on gas prices. This is a discount under the Kharkov Agreements of 2010, which was provided as an advance on account of future, starting from 2017, rental payments for the stay of the Black Sea fleet. Discount on gas prices purchased for chemical enterprises in Ukraine. The discount introduced in December 2013 for a period of one quarter in connection with the current critical state of the Ukrainian economy. Since 2009, in total, these discounts amounted to 17,0 billion US dollars. To this should be added another 18,4 billion US dollars - unpaid fines for non-selection of the minimum annual amount of gas (take-or-pay) by the Ukrainian side.


Thus, over the past four years, Russia has subsidized the economy of Ukraine at the expense of lowering gas prices in the amount of 35,4 billion US dollars. In addition, in December 2013, Russia provided Ukraine with a loan for 3,0 billion US dollars. These very significant financial resources were aimed at supporting the stability and solvency of the Ukrainian economy, the preservation of jobs and employment. I stress - no one has done this except Russia.


And what about European partners? Instead of real support for Ukraine, a declaration of intent. Promises without real deeds. The European Union uses the Ukrainian economy as a source of food raw materials, metal and mineral resources and, at the same time, as a market for finished products of a high degree of processing (engineering, chemistry), creating a trade deficit of Ukraine more than 10 billion US dollars. And this is almost two-thirds of the total current account deficit of Ukraine in 2013.


The crisis of the Ukrainian economy, largely caused by an imbalance in trade with the EU countries, has an acutely negative effect on the fulfillment of Ukraine’s contractual obligations on Russian gas supplies. Gazprom does not and does not intend to present any additional conditions as compared to those reflected in the 2009 contract of the year. This also applies to the contract price of gas, which is calculated in strict accordance with the agreed formula. However, Russia no longer has to and cannot alone bear the burden of supporting the Ukrainian economy, giving it gas discounts and forgiving debts, in fact, paying its subsidies for the trade deficit of Ukraine and the EU member states.


This year, the debt of Naftogaz of Ukraine for the gas supplied is growing from month to month. In November-December, 2013 of the year - 1451,5 million US dollars, in February 2014 of the year - plus 260,3 million, in March - another 526,1 million. I draw your attention that in March prices were still at a discount - 268,5 US dollars per thousand cubic meters. m. And even at this price, Ukraine has not paid a single dollar!


In such conditions, Gazprom, in accordance with paragraphs 5.1.5, 5.8 and 5.3 of the existing contract, will be forced to switch to prepaid gas supplies and in case of violation of the terms of payments, do not supply gas in whole or in part. In other words - exactly as much gas will be supplied as the Ukrainian side will pay for a month in advance.


Of course, this is an extreme measure. We are aware that it increases the risk of unauthorized withdrawal of gas going through the territory of Ukraine for European consumers. And that it may impede the formation of gas reserves in Ukraine to ensure its consumption in the autumn-winter period. In order to guarantee uninterrupted gas transit, it is necessary to start pumping gas in the volume of 11,5 billion cubic meters to underground storage facilities in Ukraine in the very near future. m - and it will require payments of the order of 5 billion US dollars.


However, the self-elimination of our European partners from joint actions to resolve the economic crisis in Ukraine and even from consultations with the Russian side leaves no alternative for Russia.


The way out of this situation can be only in one. To hold immediate consultations at the level of ministers of economy, finance and energy in order to work out coordinated actions to stabilize the economy of Ukraine and ensure the supply and transit of Russian gas in strict accordance with the contractual terms. And as soon as possible, proceed to coordinated concrete actions. To this we call our European partners.


Of course, Russia is ready to participate in the stabilization and recovery of the Ukrainian economy. But not unilaterally, but on parity with our European partners. Taking into account the actual investments and costs that Russia alone has been carrying alone for a long time, supporting Ukraine. Only such an approach, as we see it, is fair and balanced. And only he will lead to success.

              ,, well, we are barbarians belay ,,, Russians have always been the most backward and underdeveloped. They walked in strange pants and wore, for some reason, furs, when all normal Europeans wrapped themselves in rags. Since ancient times were not tolerant. Forbidden same-sex relationships, and in enlightened ancient Europe, men loved to love each other. lol The Russian barbarians did not even have slavery, what a shame. The Russians did not wash and lived head over heels in the mud, and the baths probably borrowed from the Finns. Russians even have wrong cities. In a normal European medieval city in the center is a gallows next to the “torture chamber”. There are ditches along the street, into which sewage is poured from the windows. And noble Europeans hung lingerie over cesspools, so that lice would creep out of clothes, unable to withstand the smell belay . Russians are the youngest people, therefore they are lagging behind in development from other nations for thousands of years, and the excavations in Tripoli (Ukraine) and Kostenki (near Voronezh) are not Russian, they were ancient Ukrainians ,,, request

        Now I am not answering your question, I will just express my pain, about Donetsk. Yesterday they showed how the border guards at the Donetsk airport treat the Russians, how they are expelled from the country, after putting seals in the documents, as if mocking the Russians - we arrived, we let you in, the stay was for 1 hour. And they spoke in Russian, and not in Ukrainian, and maybe they are even Russians - but after this reportage, to be honest with you, it becomes clear to me why Putin doesn't help the Russians? They don't even want to see Russians there now, only half of the population may want to, here they are the ones who deserve to be helped by Putin, and the rest - either on a drum, or also for the junta. How to help in this situation? One half asks for help, and the other half shouts "get out"! Here is your personal opinion, what would you do? What would you do if you were in Putin's place?

        So far, only words, but when will there be concrete measures? And will there be anyway, aren't our leaders talking about loyalty to the concluded agreements, or am I misunderstanding something? It seems to me that everything will go "on a rolled track": we will be spied by any "jackal", and we will try to convey our opinion to them .The absurdity is that no one has ever listened to us and will not do it, our opinion and our interests are deeply "on the drum for them (the EU, PACE and others ...)! And our money both flowed out of Russia and continues to flow away. to support the economy of our far from friends. It would be better if this $ billion were sent to defense or retirees.

      I remember the film "Shirley-Myrli", when the sign language interpreter tried to translate the phrase "but not more than Russia's GDP", thought about it and finally showed "a fig". Here, too, sign translation would show this very thing.

    The EU has a lot of financial and economic problems for the EU members themselves, while Ukraine is not an EU member and is unlikely to become one in the foreseeable future, therefore there is no reason to finance Ukraine (help) the EU. And the IMF loans will be spent on financing the economies of the West, because. it is with their help that the Ukrainian economy will have to "bring" to "western parameters." In the very distant future, given this situation and the unenviable position of the Ukrainian people, it will be possible to bring the Ukrainian economy to a "living" state. The debts are rather big now, but with IMF loans they will become Russia annually directly and indirectly lends to Ukraine for almost 10 billion U. This is simply obtained for free. Can this unrequited kindness stop already? in Kiev not to let the economy collapse. And the regime at the head of the country (including the Verkhovna Rada) and departments (and economic ones as well) has not professionals, but gopniks from the Maidan, who personally cut off from Ukraine its main economic partner, Russia. Not gopniks ?! And should they continue to be financed or wait for their natural political and economic death (default) and help the already normal government, which will replace the bloody junta.

    "Translation" of everything said by the President from the diplomatic language into the everyday one:

    Any politeness has a limit 10.04.2014

    A meeting of the President of Russia with members of the Government.

    Such meetings with the presence of cameras and journalists are held to transmit signals of the exact Moscow time and therefore are especially interesting. I recommend that you carefully read. Many things and numbers announced at the meeting have long been known to everyone and have been voiced more than once. Today they were again repeated for a very definite purpose.

    What was said:

    1. The European Union.

    The Association Agreement between Ukraine and the EU posed threats not so much to the Ukrainian economy as to the Russian economy. Almost immediately after the signing, an uncontrolled collapse of the Russian market would start with duty-free European goods and goods of third countries, which would immediately hit Russian producers. Moreover, Ukraine would be forced to break dozens and hundreds of agreements with Russia that contradict the terms of the association. As a result, the association poses a double threat to Russia specifically - in essence, it would destroy bilateral mutually beneficial trade and industrial ties between Russia and Ukraine and would lead to the crowding out of Russian-made goods by goods from European and third countries.

    We wanted good, human. We tried to negotiate. The proposed compromises and constructive proposals were rejected by the EU.
    European officials rested as, posing as rams. Or vice versa…

    Sorry. It will be bad.

      2. Ukraine.

      Despite all the difficulties in relations, despite all the anti-Russian and frankly fascist anti-Russian rhetoric of the junta, we fulfilled all obligations and maintained all ties, thereby providing Ukrainian industry with orders for 15 billions in real money. All advances were paid on time and in full.

      If you don’t want it for good, there will be no way. Russia is ready to abandon Ukrainian production. Completely.

      3. Europe and a little Ukraine.

      Ukraine has no gas. And will not be. Let’s release exactly as much as you pay per month.
      In order to ensure transit to Europe for the autumn-winter season 14 / 15, it is necessary to pump gas into the UGSF of Ukraine for 4-5 billions of dollars.

      If Ukraine does not have these billions, by autumn Europe will be left without gas.

      4. Ukraine and the European Union.

      The total amount of debts that may be presented to Ukraine is 16,6 billion dollars.

      Putin: I hope that the initiatives of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs to level the situation, to change it for the better will have consequences and the result will be positive. In any case, I hope that temporarily acting at different levels will not do anything there that could not be fixed.

      Now add up.

      Temporarily acting at various levels, as Vladimir Vladimirovich politely called the junta, brought the situation to the brink, after the transition of which much can no longer be fixed.

      That’s the limit.

      Now either the EU + USA + Ukraine immediately accepts the Russian conditions and immediately begin to implement the initiatives of our Foreign Ministry

      or…
      - Russia refuses all industrial orders in Ukraine. Losses of Ukraine will amount to 15 billion dollars annually. And irrevocably.
      - Russia closes its borders for Ukrainian goods and goods that transit through Ukraine.
      - Russia closes a gas tap to Ukraine.
      - Russia exposes to Ukraine the requirements for covering debts in the amount of 16,6 billion dollars.
      - Russia does not guarantee gas to Europe for the coming fall / winter until payment of the missing volumes in the underground gas storage facilities of Ukraine in the amount of 5 billion dollars.

      This is essentially an ultimatum.

      And the ultimatum is not only for the junta and the European Union. For the rest (NATO and the USA) everything was clearly indicated earlier.
      This is the last chance to save the opportunity to rectify the situation. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that everyone understands this.

    Due to the fact that some European countries behave in a hostile manner, it is necessary to turn off gas to Ukraine and those to whom we deliver through Ukraine. In the future, sell gas only to countries bordering us on an advance payment and for rubles. Let others buy from those to whom we supply. No transit needed.

It turns out that with our money we are creating a solvent sales market in Ukraine, not for ourselves, but for the EU and America! This is incomprehensible to the mind. The money of our people goes to ensure that Svidomo can live in warmth, eat sweetly, cherish m. Oskale and not deny anything to yourself! Moreover, for our preferences, discounts, loans and direct investments in the competitiveness of the products of their manufacturers, they do not consume our products, but the products of the West. This is some kind of sur! With our money we feed the Euro that we hate ... and Pin. Dostan? Awful. I feel sorry for these 35 billion to tears. Yes, let that Outskirts to hell fail !!!

    They will say that Russia has undertaken to blackmail everyone, they will say that we have no right to unilaterally reduce, worsen, restrict ... etc. etc.
    They will say that Russia has found a way to put pressure on freedoms and rights ... of hammocks, law-enforcement officers and pedrills of different calibers.
