Ukraine would like to have a monopoly on pipelines transporting oil and gas westward from Russia. From the Strategic Culture Ediorial Board at strategic-culture.org:
The oil and gas scam, like the whole war and weapons scam, and the charade of the West “defending Ukrainian democracy”, will be the undoing of the Kiev regime.
A report in the Washington Post this week (inadvertently) highlights the incorrigible corruption and unscrupulous nature of the Kiev regime. The Nazi-loving regime is not only doomed by its own depravity. Its toxic sting may well take its Western backers down with it.
The Post article by David L Stern was headlined: “Despite war, Ukraine allows Russian oil and gas to cross its territory”.
Yes, that’s right, the regime that has been hectoring the rest of the world to stop buying Russian energy is continuing to milk its transit business.
Not only that, but the Ukrainian cabal headed by a so-called president, Vladimir Zelensky, has the audacity to demand that all other transit routes for Russian oil and gas to Europe be shut down. The Nord Stream pipeline under the Baltic Sea to Germany was covertly blown by the United States last September – much to the delight of Kiev. While a southern European route known as Turk Stream via Turkey to the Balkans is being targeted for crippling sanctions by the Kiev regime and its American backers.
The blatant objective here is to give Ukraine a privileged role as the sole transit route for Russian energy. And that means the Kiev regime corners a market in services from which it can earn billions of dollars a year. If that sounds a bit like the sordid business of pimping that’s because it pretty much is.
Just read that player piano Zelensky buys Russian oil with the free money from human buzzkill Mr. Burns Brandon.
