South Stream in Heat of Energy Battles (II)

...Half-truths, as everyone knows, are worse than lies. That Russia's independent policy in the energy field is not to Brussels' liking is an undisputed fact. But only if one equates the interests of all 28 member states of the European Union with the corporate interests of the Brussels bureaucracy. For Gunther Oettinger, Jose Manuel Barroso and other euroofficers who are preparing for the Europarliament elections next year, playing the Russian (or anti-Russian, to be more exact) card is essential first and foremost for their own political survival in the structures of the Euroatlantic community...

South Stream in Heat of Energy Battles (I)

Eurasian energy wars are on the way to the next phase. The United States and the European Commission’s leadership tried real hard to frustrate the implementation of North Stream project. Having failed at that, they refocusing their activities on the attempts to foil the plans to construct South Stream. In the case of North Stream they counted on the states that had no relation to the gas pipeline. Now they have changed the tactics to rely on recruiting influential political forces in the countries which are to become the main beneficiaries in case the project goes through. Serbia has a special place in these plans; some Serbian media outlets have already launched an anti-Russian campaign...

The Gas Summit in Moscow: What Has Been Left Unsaid?

...The leaders of 13 states – Algeria, Bolivia, Venezuela, Egypt, Iran, Qatar, Libya, Nigeria, United Arab Emirates, Trinidad and Tobago, Equatorial Guinea, Oman and Russia, which together control more than 70 percent of natural gas reserves, 45 percent of its exports and a third of all the world’s gas pipelines, along with Kazakhstan, Norway, the Netherlands and Iraq as observers – gathered together in Moscow... And the most important thing which is most relevant right now, but which unfortunately did not get much coverage at the Gas Exporting Countries Forum, is the scramble for Asia’s gas markets that is already underway...

Europe Embraces Nord Stream Expansion

South Stream Shapes European Energy Security, Nabucco Falls Behind

South Stream is an ambitious endeavor of Russia’s energy giant Gazprom to get direct access to the EU energy market. It is portrayed and criticized by some politicians in Europe as a «dangerous» gateway to a broader economic relationship with Moscow. Remarkably enough, Bulgaria, Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia and Hungary have one-by-one opted for the project...

Bulgaria: Recent Events

Bulgaria is facing the wave of the largest mass protests in the last 16 years provoked by price hikes. So the resignation of Boyko Borisov government has been expected. It was this very government and big time players from Washington who made the events unfold this way... Perhaps Bulgaria doesn’t even realize it has become a country with limited sovereignty as a result of the United Sates diplomatic pressure...

World War III an Energy War

Once out of the building docks, every one of a fleet of 25 Q-Max huge LNG-carriers commissioned by Qatar will enable the transit of 150 million cu m of natural gas per trip, giving a boost to the country's LNG expansion. No doubt, since Qatar's ambitions are backed by the US Exxon Mobil, the capacities will serve to erode Russia's status of the biggest natural gas supplier to Europe. There is a feeling that the Washington neocons who, at best, see Russia as a US vassal in a coming confrontation with China, hope to use the capabilities to coerce Russia into a complete refusal from any independent foreign policies...

Putin in Beijing: testing new political course

Though Vladimir Putin planned his two-day visit to Beijing (from October 11 to 12) as the current Prime Minister in the result but arrived there as the future president. It is quite symbolic that in his new status Putin made his first foreign to China where he definitely could not avoid speaking about changes in the Russian foreign policy, which is by all accounts turning towards the East. The receiving party, which traditionally gives Putin a warm welcome, has seized the shift of Moscow’s foreign policy and the commonality in setting strategic tasks on the global level...

Presidential Elections in Ukraine To Be Held in Violation of Council of Europe Norms

...The legislative changes adopted by the new Ukrainian government in violation of European standards for holding elections cannot but lead to the gross distortion of the will of voters.
