Is Putin playing it 100% right? Highly doubtful but he is playing the great energy game. While our faggy little university theoretician has no clue what this is all about. Obungu knows reparations and redistribution. He knows racial and class grievances and envy.
But Obungle hates, despises foreign policy and oil/gas/energy based geo-strategy. Vlad Putin is the 180 degrees opposite.
Vlad is into world domination (in a sense) His adversaries are outside Russia
Obungle is into taxing the private sector producers more and buying votes with this money. Expanding the affirmative action based Federal work force with this money
His adversaries are conservatives inside America
“The Ukraine is sitting on some of the world’s largest shale gas deposits. And just a few weeks before Ukraine’s President Yanukovich fell from power, his government signed a $10 billion shale natural gas deal with American company Chevron to develop those resources. That would have placed the Ukraine as a net gas exporter by 2020.”
It can’t be true.
For the time being, the EU banned the shale gas exploitation. Ukraine cannot ask to be member of the EU and at the same time use fraking.
In my opinion, the Ukraine needs to avoid both Russia and the EU. The path to freedom is through neither of those.
As far as fracking is concerned, I have no clue where the EU stands on the issue. But when the tree hugging nut case are cold they may change their minds about that nonsense.
