The news came just hours after Poland stopped providing gas to Ukraine through "reverse-flow" pipelines. The Russian gas volumes were 24% lower on Tuesday and 20% lower on Monday, according to PGNiG. That shortfall prompted Poland to halt reverse-flow. Poland and Ukraine rely heavily on Russian natural gas. Russia is in a pricing dispute over gas with Ukraine. Some analysts believe Russia, which stopped gas supplies to Ukraine in June over the pricing dispute, is punishing Poland for sending gas to Ukraine.IF WESTERN EUROPE CONTINUES SANCTIONS AGAINST PUTIN, THEN THEIR GAS/ENERGY SUPPLIES WILL BE CUT, TOO.
WITH EUROPE TEETERING INTO RECESSION NOW, THIS WILL ONLY MAKE THEIR ECONOMIES WORSE AND RECOVERY LESS LIKELY.
THE REAL/ULTIMATE/BOTTOM-LINE SOLUTION IS TO GET RID OF OBAMA - WHOSE 6 YEARS OF APPEASEMENT OF PUTIN - AKA THE "RESET" - HAS ENABLED PUTIN TO TAKE CRIMEA AND SET PUTIN UP TO REMAKE THE RUSSIAN EMPIRE IN HIS OWN IMAGE.
WITH OBAMA GONE, WE CAN DEPLOY NMD TO EUROPE AND EXPAND GAS AND OIL EXPLORATION HERE, AND EXPORT SUPPLIES TO EUROPE TO GET THEM OFF THEIR CURRENT ADDICTION TO RUSSIAN ENERGY.
I HOPE EUROPE AND THE WEST CAN MAKE IT TO INAUGURATION DAY 2017...
