Thank You for am still looking for the Land I once lived in.
Gas might stop flowing through Ukraine. If it does, it will resume flowing through the newly “annexed” Ukraine.
Thank You Lord ... Give Us the secrets to their soul, Lord.
If I remember my history correctly, didn’t cutting off natural resources from Japan piss them off enough to bomb Pearl Harbor? Will the EU bomb Russia? Or will they bomb Ukraine since they’re the ones closing the valves.
How’s that “Green” energy working for everyone?
Do that and Russia will invade, and the EU will let them.
Not very smart. The Rebels are getting stupid.
“I think Putin will put a sudden stop to any sudden gas stoppages. Hes not massing the troops for nothing.”
I wonder if the Ukrainians have mined the gas terminals and pipelines?
Well, they might want to rethink that if they did.
Why does nearly everyone posting on this thread take the ITAR-TASS article at face value? This is a Russian government controlled source.
(imho) and I do not claim to speak for Jim but I truly believe the posts are accurate. Once more, I do not speak for Jim and this is my opinion only.
Russia owes Ukraine compensation for Crimea and the 50+ ships they have pirated. Pretty cut and dried. They will have to pay up eventually.
I know what you mean. It probably has just about as much objectivity as the AP or UPI. Or CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, NYT, WP, LAT, Reuters, McClatchy, Gannett, etc, etc, etc.
With the IMF doing that job what is the answer from the IMF would be my thought.

I do understand your meaning, although I had more in mind a White House press release.
Yes, and in my mind we are T- 60 hours and counting.
Ukrainian neo-Nazis just stormed the parliament, calling for more revolution. Country is in near total anarchy, more to come.
“Russia owes Ukraine compensation for Crimea and the 50+ ships they have pirated. Pretty cut and dried. They will have to pay up eventually.”
They could just take it off of the debt that Ukraine owes Russia already, which is about 9% of Ukraine’s total GDP.
What is the going scrap value of a trashed 40-year old ex-Russian frigate, anyway?
