Ukraine-Imposed Sanctions to Hurt Europe

The Ukraine's parliament has passed legislation that would allow the government to impose sanctions on Russia. It provides for sanctions against 172 individuals and 65 entities in Russia and other countries for supporting and financing «terrorism» in Ukraine. President Poroshenko has not signed it into law as yet, but the transit of Russian gas to Europe through the territory of Ukraine is in jeopardy... It may make the European Union want to get rid of unmanageable transiter and finally approve the construction South Stream going around the Ukraine’s territory. The situation puts into doubt the expediency of the EU Third Energy Package which actually bans Russia from using the existing pipelines while other suppliers have reduced capacity for filling the pipes...

Europe Has No Substitute for Russian Energy Resources

In many ways, Serbian Prime Minister Aleksander Vucic’s two-day visit to Moscow this week was a breakthrough. To begin with, both sides finally managed to come to an agreement on all issues concerning Serbia’s involvement in the South Stream pipeline project. Serbia’s Prime Minister also emphasised an interest in developing a partnership with Russia, which he sees as a priority of his country’s foreign policy...

Pushing Ukraine to the Brink

Everything. It reveals the commercial interests that drive US policy. Just as the War in Afghanistan was largely fought to facilitate the transfer of natural gas from Turkmenistan to the Arabian Sea, so too, Washington engineered the bloody coup in Kiev to cut off energy supplies from Russia to Europe to facilitate the US pivot to Asia.

Russia Breaks EU Blockade

On June 24 President Vladimir Putin wound up his visit to Austria – the second trip abroad after the situation in Ukraine took a turn for the worse.  He went to Normandy in early June to take part in the 70 th Anniversary of D-Day commemoration. The launching of the «the second front» delivered a powerful blow against the US-led anti-Russian European alliance. The summit in Austria laid a foundation for Russia’s further economic cooperation with Western partners... It’s an open secret that many Western leaders perceive these issues as intertwined... Some circles in Brussels try to play an «anti-Russian» card at the time the European Union is unable to refuse the role of obedient junior partner of the United States.

European «Gas Deadlock» to Meet Interests of US Westinghouse Electric Company

Gasprom has introduced a prepayment system for gas supplies to Ukraine. It has become a result of self-destructive and provocative policy implemented by the West. Instead of making Ukraine find a compromise the United States and the European Union pushed the situation into a dead-lock. It serves the interests of US politicians and businessmen while posing a grave threat to Ukraine and Europe... The US goals are clear. It sees the current conflict as a continuation of a bigger geopolitical game related to the energy transportation routes going through Ukraine and affecting the interests of the whole Eastern and Central Europe...

Why Is the U.S. Afraid of South Stream?

The West is continuing to twist the arms of Russia's partners in building the South Stream gas pipeline. Hot on the heels of the Bulgarian government, Serbia has announced that work will be suspended. Both countries cited the position of the European Commission. But EU energy commissioner Gunther Oettinger refuses to discuss the construction of South Stream in the format of a consultation with Russia, the project's main participant...

Oettinger's Gas Bluff

At a time when gas supplies to the European market from other suppliers are fall-ing, the advantages of collaboration with Russia have become obvious for Belgrade, for Sofia and for Athens. However, the European Commission refuses to admit the obvious. This follows, in part, from the most recent statement of EU Energy Commissioner Gunther Oettinger, who rushed to surround his support for the South Stream project with scandalous political conditions. In an interview with Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung, he stated that a «political decision» on the construction of the South Stream pipeline is not possible until Russia recognizes the government in Kiev. Oettinger provocatively urged Russian partners to «adhere to the practices of international law»...

On the Significance of the South Stream for Europe

...The meeting of the energy ministers of the G7 - Great Britain, Germany, Italy, Canada, the U.S., France and Japan - ended with no result. Planned with the goal of creating a unified anti-Russian front on energy, the G7 meeting brought forth yet another vague declaration about the principles of policy in this sphere saying that the ministers are «extremely concerned by the energy security implications of developments in Ukraine» for Europe. But the contradictions in the ranks of the G7 have not gone away. Germany, Italy, and to some extent Great Britain are still trying to postpone the imposition of sanctions against Russia on which the U.S. is insisting...

Russia - EU: A Dubious Partnership Twenty Years Later

The signing of a Joint Political Declaration on Partnership and Cooperation between the Russian Federation and the European Union twenty years ago in Brussels had great significance for its time. This document laid the foundation for the further development of relations between Moscow and Brussels on key issues of European security, cooperation and development. In the following year, 1994, the parties signed a Partnership and Cooperation Agreement (PCA) which took force on December 1, 1997 and was planned to last for ten years. But the parties have not been able to sign a new document which could make Russia and the EU strategic partners for the past six years...

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...

West Responds to Islamic State Gains and Successes

No matter the United States and Great Britain claim to form a coalition of 40 states to fight the Islamic State, there is little done in practice. The United Sates are pursuing the very same goals as in the past: to overthrow Bashar Assad in Syria, make forces hostile to Tehran and Damascus come to power in Iraq, weaken Iran and Shia Hezbollah movement on Lebanon and then move jihad closer to the Russian borders. Washington hopes that the Ukraine’s crisis will divert Moscow efforts and limit its influence in the Middle East.
