Russia will not renew the contract with Ukraine for gas transit to Europe after 2019 to unfavorable conditions, transfers "RIA Novosti" . The Prime Minister of Russia Dmitry Medvedev said in an interview with the Slovenian newspaper DELO.

"Experience shows that making forecasts about the prospects for Ukrainian transit - it is very ungrateful. However, it is obvious that extend the transit agreement with Ukraine on unfavorable conditions, we will not "- said the Russian prime minister.

As noted, currently the transit rate through Ukraine is $ 2.7 per thousand cubic meters per 100 kilometers. Kiev said it wants to raise this rate to 5%.

According to Medvedev, the contract for the transit of Russian gas to end "at 10 am January 1, 2020".

"If its duration is not extended, we will not have the legal and regulatory framework for the future supply of gas through Ukraine", - he said. In Russian

Very soon Ukraine won't need you gas, as we see you're suing the Turkmens for not importing much of your gas. At the same time the recent article states Europe and Ukraine aren't exporting as much gas either. So now you're crying and making believe that Ukraine has no choice?

Remember little one, soon you won't have the pull on energy you once had. Why? Because of your holier than thou attitude.
Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin sure that the US is not traded in the Ukraine, Iran and Syria. He said this in an interview with "Commander in Chief" , commenting on the intensification of the dialogue of the Russian Federation and the United States.

"Yes, I heard concerns from even serious experts in Ukraine that we exchanged on Syria, Iran or the two countries together. I have absolutely no such fear, "- Klimkin said.

He noted that a solution to the Iranian nuclear program is necessary for the world. "The issue of non-proliferation of nuclear weapons is not regional, it is global. Decision after lengthy negotiations it was found on July 20, was voted a resolution on Iran (the UN Security Council on Monday, July 20 unanimously approved a resolution in support of the agreement on the atom between Iran and the international mediators. - Ed.) "- Klimkin said.

"Everybody understands what Russia is trying to put the squeeze on the same EU and the international community. She says that Moscow is vital Ukraine, and the West's attention to us over time decrease, there will a certain weariness on the situation in Ukraine. But the fundamental principles (international law) is vital, above all, important for the West. If Russia manages to destabilize Ukraine, then again there the idea of ​​two Europes, which always wanted to embody in Russia: to make his Eurasian Union as opposed to the EU, the two value systems, two systems of economic principles, the two security systems. In my opinion, two of Europe - is the greatest danger to the world, because it would be the largest frozen conflict ", - said the head of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry.

According to him, one of the key failures of Moscow is that it is fundamentally underestimated two things. "Firstly, we have underestimated, Ukrainians, and secondly, underestimated the support and solidarity of the international community and the importance of Ukraine to the international community," - Klimkin said.

British conservative MP, swimming in money, probably much of it Russian, who has no morals, and for whom business is more important than the deaths of thousands upon thousands of civilians, including those poor souls on MH17. Money before morals. Disgusting individual. A disgrace to civilisation. Revolting.
wikipedia -
Kawczynski was married in 2000 and divorced in 2011. In June 2013, he announced to his Conservative Association that his new partner is male.

Sounds like he is a seriously confused individual.

Looking a little more deeply into him, he has had contacts with .... RIA Novosti. About sanctions. I think somebody who backs him must be suffering because of the economic sanctions against Russia. .... And he is doing his bit for the local "landlord".... allegedly...

his article is already in the Russian press - no surprise there... good bonus coming his way?
У меня нет иллюзий по поводу России, но санкции надо прекратить ("The Guardian", Великобритания)

Read also here. JCB money - Lord Bamford... article mentions the scumball MP and RIA Novosti...
I believe we might now be antagonising the Russian bear too much.

Daniel Kawczynski, a UK MP wants sanctions against Russia to STOP

Pardon? This man, evil Putin, is responsible for the loss of thousands of lives, billions of dollars of damage, uprooting families, illegal invasions, annexations and being ugly and we are antagonising him?

I feel sorry for those in the UK who have to tolerate a MP who worships Putin.

will all the Ukraine banks go bankrupt ?

Scandalous bill on the restructuring of foreign currency loans is aimed at third reading (Tsenzor.Net)
IMF experts believe that the implementation of this law will cause a severe blow to the banking system.


Some deputies had loans in dollars. And they lost out when the hryvnia fell.
So they voted for the banks to pay them back the loans at 5 uah to the dollar. A good profit for the deputies and a few thousand other people.
This law would bankrupt the banks, of course. But the deputies would get quite rich and quite happy.
Like a casino. You play, you lose some money, and then you pass a law saying the casino has to pay to back 5 times as much. )) Very Happy
