Russia Warns Of "Gas Crisis" By Fall, Blasts Poroshenko "Personally Responsible For New Deaths"

Tyler Durden's picture




 

While the USA has been oddly quiet since Ukraine's President Poroshenko unilaterally ended the cease-fire, the Russians have not. This morning's "anti-terrorist" shelling of East Ukraine buildings stirred Russia's Prime Minister Medvedev to warn:

  • *MEDVEDEV SAYS POROSHENKO MADE MISTAKE ENDING CEASE-FIRE
  • *MEDVEDEV SAYS POROSHENKO PERSONALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR NEW DEATHS
  • *MEDVEDEV SAYS THERE MAY BE FULL FLEDGED GAS CRISIS BY FALL

Of course, Ukraine is 'fixed' - it must be: stocks are up. However, it appears a new round of violence (with little seeming room for negotiation) appears set to start as Ukraine moves ahead and Medvedev makes it clear there will be repercussions.

 

As Voice of Russia reports, Ukrainian President Petr Poroshenko made a fatal mistake when he had ended the truce, Russian Prime Minister believes. Poroshenko is now personally responsible for casualties, Medvedev believes.

"Having ended truce, President Poroshenko has made a fatal mistake. It will bring new casualties. And he is personally responsible for them now," Medvedev posted on his Facebook account on Wednesday.

Prime Minister Medvedev said that Russia would take protective measures concerning its market after Ukraine signed an association agreement with the European Union.

"On June 27 Ukraine signed an Association Agreement with the European Union. This is Ukraine's right. Russia's right is to switch to new conditions for working with it. To protect its market. The decision on protection measures will be made after consultations. The Russian government is analyzing the current situation and devising our steps under the CIS free trade zone agreement and the WTO (World Trade Organization) rules," he said.

Medvedev predicted "a full-blown gas crisis" by autumn as a result of Ukraine's denial to pay for Russian gas.

"Ukraine doesn't pay for gas. The debt is huge. They take gas from underground depots. There'll be a full-blown gas crisis by autumn," he wrote, Interfax reports.

Then the to-ing and fro-ing began...

  • *KLIMKIN SAYS NO SHIFT OF POSITION; MUTUAL CEASE-FIRE NEEDED
  • *LAVROV SAYS CEASE-FIRE MUST NOT BE USED FOR REGROUPING FORCES
  • *KLIMKIN SAYS NO SHIFT OF POSITION; MUTUAL CEASE-FIRE NEEDED
  • *LAVROV: WHEN UKRAINE CEASE-FIRE AGREED, IT'LL BE OSCE MONITORED

If only the Russians didn't have nukes, ICBMs, bombers, a leader with balls, etc., then the USA could liberate that gas and oil from those militant communists socialists muslims Orthodox Christians, just like we did in Iraq and Libya.

Didn't you see Hollywood's latest Jack Ryan propaganda movie?  The evil Rusians will be responsible for the dollar crashing.  The debt-addicted US Congress and co-dependent and enabling banking cabal known as the Federal Reserve Bank will have had nothing to do with it.  It is important we know who to blame.

Fuckit, I'm on vacation but logged in just to stir the pot.

Everything is a zionist plot, even this post. The whole ZOG gimmick was cooked up by the KGB in the 50's because they could not secure a toehold in the new Israeli or Saudi states, thus locking them out of 80% of the action in the post-war world and their expansion plans for Stalinism post-war (Argentina/Korea was looking like a lost cause for Russian style USSR hedgemony at this stage). Anyone who truthfully believes that 10 families have conference calls every three weeks to steer the world is deluding themselves out of a rational life.

Here's the red pill: ZOG is a easy excuse to explain away all your own personal failures. Never get into that big job ? Jews did it. Stock market crashed? Jews. Army followed a bi-polar Artist into a suicide march on the Russian Front? A jewish family who had 80% of their assets stolen by said crazy Artiste did it. The only reason ZOG rhetoric is allowed to continue well into the 21st c. is because under scrutiny, 99% of it makes zero sense. It is the world's oldest troll, and one everyone is in on. But you. Get a life, do a bit of investigative work, and maybe, just maybe you will find a real corrupt group at play (like the currency fixer's, none of which were ZOG's).

Tom Clancy is on the record that most of his famous segments, including red october were done with a big spoonful of help from his "friends down the road", who like all white collar guys like to share the stories that will live on long beyond the burner box.

Anyone who was around for the German adventures in 1995 know this is what Germany does best, play both sides. Nothing changes. Germany needs dirty black russian cash to prop up their DB and other regional banks who are loaded to the gills on shit-club loans. Germany will turn a blind eye to the looting of Crimea and Lughansk while locals flee for West Ukraine, and Petrograd backed Oligarchs take over the industrial assets (coal & electrochemical), which funny, is exactly what Germany needs to continue their export dumping. Russia will back Germany (and their new French friends) in supressing populist reforms to equalize or improve growth conditions in the EU, skewing the trade towards foreign capital boltholes like Monaco or Lux. German industry is failling to compete with Chinese/US exports (esp. with the Fed dumping dollars to crush Mercedes/Audi/Kyrupp) so Russia is their bolthole, lest their own overleveraged balance sheets need audit and a few P/E multiple downgrades.

Russia needs Germany to continue to validate his empire building, which is necessary to distract the Russian army & nationalista's from the GDP and corruption problems in Moscow & Pytrograd. If Putina runs out of agression, then the structural problems + hard questions will start cropping up.

Russia or Germany I suspect will not crash the system, but after the period of complacency which will lead to the market downdraft when biotech / software downgrade, then Germany will likely pivot to Russia for bailout/backstop.

At that time, then we will see what the solevency of the Russian system is, or if they crack like Brazil.

Gas weapons are not as fun as they once were. Take that as an internet pundit talking from personal exp. :) And on that note, everyone in Moscow knows Dimi talks out his ass 80% of the time, he plays the "bad cop" this election cycle.

You cannot scare us!  The CIA, NSA, Kevin Costner, Keira Knightly, and Captain James T. Kirk seemed more than up to the task against those evil, Christian Orthodox, drunk, womanizing, rich, stupid, ugly, anti-semetic, gay-bashing Russians.

I know the Russians hate gays because Bob Costas told us while we were trying to watch the winter olympics.*

 

 

 

*Imagine the outcry if everytime the US squad played during the World Cup the television sportscaster droned on and on about how America hates privacy, waterboards prisoners, and kills children with drone strikes in sovereign nations where we are not even at war.

Real 'muricans have been blaming individuals from other countries for the crimes of their governments since forever.  Remember Cold War era Olympics?  Eastern bloc athletes were assumed to be card carrying members of the KGB or something.  It would actually being poetic justice in a way for the same thing to start happening to Americans - but ultimately would be just as unfair.

Putin understands that 2 same sex parents destroys the family structure, and banned them from adopting his peoples' children. In the US they want to destroy the family structure so the state can raise our youth. Anyone who values the sanctity of family should applaud Putin for having a pair.

Remember Cold War era Olympics?  Eastern bloc athletes were assumed to be card carrying members of the KGB or something.

Really? Perhaps this was the case before 1972. From what I recall of watching the telecast of the Munich games, it wasn't like that. I think the chance to see actual USSRian people, as opposed to the Boris Badenov and Natasha Fatale stereotypes they'd beed fed their entire lives, allowed a lot of Americans for the first time to see them as fellow human beings.

Between events, ABC aired brief background segments about some of the athletes. I remember one of them about Vasiliy Alekseyev, a Russian weightlifter on the Soviet team. It said that he worked as a school teacher when he wasn't training. Somehow it made him seem less like a communist agent seeking world domination and more like a normal person that lived in a different country.

The unforgettable sweetheart of the Munich games was Olga Korbut, an 18 year old Belarusian on the Soviet women's gymnastic team. She had a smile that would fill the entire venue, and America quickly fell in love with her.

Of course, you're always going to have those whose thinking has been so conditioned and throttled that they are incapable of escaping from the prison of their Cold War frame of reference. However, I believe that most people when given the opportunity to look beyond the false narratives and artificial media constructs are capable of seeing the Enemy du Jour® as fellow human beings instead of lurking monsters.

In sad contrast to 1972, the American media coverage of the Sochi Olympics was little more than vulgar, thinly veiled propaganda. That there has been a media blackout in the US regarding events in southeast Ukraine should come as no surprise. The American public simply cannot be allowed to see that Kiev's "anti-terror" operations involve shelling churches during mass, raiding hospitals to finish off the wounded, bombing water treatment facilities, scattering anti-personnel mines across fields of livestock, dropping white phosphorus on residential areas, firing on busses filled with women and children trying to escape the violence, and door-to-door death squads exterminating entire families. Nope, if Americans saw that, they might get confused about who the good guys are and who the terrists are.

Russian xenophobia, gay-bashing etc. is news because in most modern societies, its not seen as an effective way to do business, it's exceptional at this point.  Poll people on the street of any Russian city, and its pretty easy to determine the climate of strong enforced conformity.  Not that surprising, as anyone who didn't conform was killed, sent to Serbia, or fled over the past 100 years.  

As has been stated here, Russian leaders have raised blaming the country's woes on outsiders to a fine art.  If you really luv your Putin godfather and his band of oligarchs so much, why don't you just embrace your lifestyle choices and stop blaming others for your problems, as they are clearly self-inflicted..

Poroshenko thinks if anything bad goes down he will always have his US mates ready to whisk him out of the country on a 'Saigon like' chopper to freedom sucking on chocolates.

Instead the reality is more like him being hunted down like the US and EU did to Gaddaffi.

He is betting his life on a pair of 7's but, playing the game like he has 4 Ace's

Good old Tom was obsessed with the long standing US Navy and Soviet Navy underwater Submarine cold war. I got to take part in that for a number of years. And Tom was allowed access to many things the public was not allowed to learn of. He really did make his fortune off of the Cold war and his fantasy of a Soviet/NATO war. I never read his books, but I know the higher up in the USN were very happy about the sterling reputation he gave to the NAvy's Submarine and Surface ASW forces.

Most people really enjoyed the cold war, profits for corporations were huge and long lasting. Best of all, few people got killed in it while profits matched those of a real shooting war.

I believe the American elites made so much money and were allowed to amass so much power over the Red Scare, that they are desperate to reignite a new cold war for profit and power accumulation. Nothing, but nothing Washington DC craves more than a return to the good old days of a large and evil enemy.

Israel especially loves to see Christian Russia set against a largely Christian NATO. And both sides are largely white and European. Splitting  the white European Christians and making them want to kill each other is a great accomplishment for the Zionest elements world wide, but most especially in Israeli occupied Washington. Think about why the two biggest enemies on earth are forced into being the white christian Euro Ethnic peoples. Count the ways these serves zion. I think you will see the Neocon movement is largely a zionist movement, and it is they who created this new cold war. I would say shame on them, BUT, we Americans most of all should be the ones told Shame on you! We walk right into the Israeli trap.

These ZH clowns cannot comprehend that there is no Slavic-Russian people anymore in today Russia. THe POS Putin, a Zionist puppet, clearly stated that Russia belongs to Russian-Speaking people. Putin is an enemy of Russian nationalism.

The great Russian Empire was destroyed by Zionist-terrorists back in 1917. Lenin-Blank and Trotsky-Bronshtain brought a genocide to the Russian-Slaves: millions were slaughtered and millions left Russia-USSR. The Stalin killed another 25 millions Russians and Ukrainians. Then was another great slaughter: the WWII when USSR has lost 37 millions people.

Summary

Russia is finished. Both Putin and his puppet Medvedev are living on borrowed time and will end like Saddam Hussein with Russia looking like today Iraq.

One thing that concerns me about Russia is it's low population replenishment. I believe they are facing population decline. But this can be reversed.

I wouldn't worry about Russia being 'finished'. In fact Russia seems to be going back to its roots and rebuilding its modern image on a solid foundation that has worked throughout the centuries. They also appear to be building relations with old soviet states via political and economic means, which are much more efficient than the old style occupation methods.

 The US Navy now allows women on board all combat ships except the Submarine force. The British Royal Navy has just put the first women aboard. So I think the USN is not far behind. I gather from sailors I know that straight sex is not unknown on our Navy ships during deployment, and in port it is rampant.

Way back in Gulf War I, a USN supply ship in the Gulf was namned "The Love Boat". I forget exact figures, but as many as 17 of the 25 women onboard for a months long deployment returned to port after the war pregnant. Given birth control, one suspects all 25 women must have been active to produce such a %. Worse still for the lovely ladies was confronting their husbands in port. Over half the 17 had husbands ashore or at sea, being sailors themselves.

From reading insider reports made by senior enlisted petty officers in the early 2000's, I gather that sex is the norm and stopping it is impossible. What hurts morale are the sailors jealous that the lady sailors are servicing others regularly but not them. We all know this from High School. But imagine a ship deployed for 6 months, mostly at sea, and men outnumbering women 10-1, and the women all sexually active. Need I paint a picture of the results for morale?

No, they just don't feel the need to wear it on their sleeve like they do here so it is not such an issue.  While the culture is not pro-gay in any way they are not so obsessed with finding out every detail of your life so I'm sure gays have been serving in their military just as most other places (even places that claim they are not).

Just remember the olympic shooting teams had to lock up their single shot .22's at the local armory because gun laws are so tight.....

How could these people possibly be getting their weapons if not for Putin??????

Its just not possible, which means he is the instigator.......

Lets see how many down arrows I can get with this one from the putin pussy brigade....

You are right and I would be also...........

But who in their right mind would want to live in a ressian dominated country???

Guess things must either really be bad or the russian mercanaries are really the ones causing the trouble..

With a small minority of the populace.

How would anybody know except the people that live there?

Spreading more lies about Ukranian refugees? Naughty Putin ass-licker, down boy.

The "100,000" refugee claim stories were reported in your controlled media outlets along with pictures that were actually the Ukranian Poland border crossing lol...always manipulating the photos and videos, you jokers!

Did he post selfies and pics of his lunch plate too? On his Facebook account? What the hell is he doing playing around on Facebook when he hasn't finished his homework? Are we supposed to take these people seriously?...#whogivesafuck?

I wish these guys would stop trying to "connect" with people and just do their damned jobs. Facebook is where people go to connect with friends, family. Not get status updates from their friggin' politicians.

Go out and TALK to your people if you want to update them! Talking to your constituents from your Facebook page is like sending a digital card to your mother on her birthday...tacky, tacky, tacky.

The sad events in Ukraine continue to play out and innocent Ukrainians continue to die. Putin continues to resist the bait of direct military intervention and continues his internationally lawful strategy, which will ultimately result in the total collapse of the neo-nazi Nuland sponsored terrorists. Meanwhile, Washington can no longer focus exclusively on events in Kiev as it is now busy helping CIA-sponsored ISIS free the Mideast from peace.

The world is catching on to the evil that America has become.

As for Iraq, they are being pushed quickly towards Syria, Iran and Russia, all of whom will help defeat the fanatical terrorists now masquerading under a totally perverted and false version of Islam.

I'm really disappointed in the ZH commenting crew. The delay in explaining how this is Janet Yellen's fault means that you are off your game. Isn't it obvious that debasing our currency leads to gas shortages in Ukraine and Russian aggression? It also causes warts and spoiled milk, but that will be explained in another thread.

Oh the news doctors gotta be fuckin true. The russian backed forces do not

want peace. If you held a referendum in Luhansk and Donetsk about where these

oblasts wanted to go, I doubt it would be to russia. Why not vote with outside

vigilence. russian backed forces would lose. Whilst this 'civil' war is going on russias

steal of crimea is hardly mentioned. putin will not let go of Ukraine because he needs it more than

Ukraine needs russia.

Facts:  

1)  Russia never invaded the Crimea.  In fact, Russia held treaty rights to station something like 20,000 troops in the Crimea;

2)  The US was instrumental in foementing the civil unrest and protests that created the crisis flashpoint;

Until "Phuk u" can come to terms with these facts, he will remain lost.

Wombat, how old are you?  Don't they require a college degree anymore to be on the Putin blog spam team in St. P?

Funny you bring up Russia's lease of a few small bases in Crim, as the payment Russia made for those leases was mostly largely made in natural gas.  Ukraine happens to be in economic shambles, due mostly to its endemic corruption on all sides, and relied on this arrangement to pay for the gas.  

Read up on the Kharkiv Pact Putin lover-boy...

Guess who loses when the neocons and the central bank decide to punish Russia within Russia’s zone of influence? The American Empire loses.

And if the American Empire loses,  guess who else wins besides the Russian and Ukrainian people?  We win, the white European culture that built America and her foundations for liberty, independence and economic growth.

For it is the debt tyrants expanding their tentacles into Eurasia who are using up America’s future and displacing her founders and their people that need to lose this Ukrainian aggression else all peoples and their quest for freedom lose. Make no mistake, this fight is about world government and to topple Russian influence at this stage presents a dark future for Americans and other free peoples everywhere.

In his July 1 speech at a conference of Russian Federation ambassadors and permanent representatives on protecting Russia’s national interests and strengthening the principles of international relations, Russian President Vladimir Putin clarified the issue not just for Ukrainians but for America’s dominate European culture, speaking midst the dying of Ukrainian civilians and separatists, and the growing number of refugees flowing into the Russian Federation from Ukraine and the killing of journalists by the US/Yats-installed Kiev junta after its revolutionary seizure of power (from Global Research today):

“In my view, we are observing a focused effort to liquidate all media representatives. This applies to both Russian and foreign journalists. Who could be afraid of fair reporting? Probably those who are committing crimes. We strongly hope that the Ukrainian authorities act on their promises to carefully investigate the crimes.

“More new hotspots are appearing on the world map. There is a deficit of security in Europe, in the Middle East, South-East Asia, in the Asia-Pacific region and in Africa. The global economic, financial and trade systems are becoming unbalanced, and moral and spiritual values are being washed out.

“There is hardly any doubt that the unipolar world order did not come to be. Peoples and countries are raising their voices in favour of self-determination and civilizational and cultural identity, which conflicts with the attempts by certain countries to maintain their domination in the military sphere, in politics, finance, the economy and in ideology.”

Continued Putin: 

"We need to get rid of ambitions, of attempts to establish a ‘world barracks’ and arrange everybody by rank, or to impose single rules of behaviour and life, and to finally begin building relations based on equality, mutual respect and concern for mutual interests. It is time we admit each other’s right to be different, the right of every country to live its own life rather than to be told what to do by someone else."

The "white European culture" also came up with the idea for the central bank, which is the bane of the entire world. This concept has already destroyed America and will destroy the rest of the free world soon.

You correctly identify the destruction caused by the central bank. But your “culture” reference is in error.

The designer of the U.S. Federal Reserve System, Paul Warburg, a representative of Kuhn Loeb, the Rothschilds and the Warburgs, was not a white European. He was Jewish. And these Jewish families that brought the Bank of England idea to America had within their central bank system a plan to overtake the fundamental principles of European culture. Secretly, they would undermine the contract society of America’s founders, establish a banker monopoly of international bankers, seize control of the government from the people and transfer it to themselves.

They chartered a path around Madison’s Constitution, Patrick Henry’s states’ rights, Jefferson’s representative government and George Washington’s moral freedom.

It is this culture, the Jewish culture, that is dissolving America’s southern border as we speak, buying congressmen the likes of Boehner and McConnell, judges the likes of Supreme Court justices Ginsberg, Sotomayor, Kagan, Breyer and Roberts and presidents the likes of Bush and Obama, all the while smashing the property rights and the moral standards of America’s Christian middle class families and stealing economic freedom. It is Warburg’s and Yellen’s culture that is destroying America, not George Washington’s.

Having perused the comments I find it extraordinary that those who approve of US hegemony seem to still be living in the 1990s.  I have also noticed the rise of programs on US TV that seem to glorify the beat down of US citizens.  Shows like the Biggest Loser glorifies the belittling and torture of the overweight.  Scared Straight glorifies the torture and humiliation of the young.  Cop shows abound making heros of those that prey on the underclass, demonstrating that they have lesser rights and deserve no leniency.  The propaganda is never ending and it shows up daily in American Foreign Policy.   It is preparing the populace for the collapse, and the coming police state response.  We should all be very nervous of being labelled the next acceptable target.

Russia makes nice chocolates.

Personal note. My company does business with Russia, and since the Ukraine trouble, Russia has canceled exit visas of the relatives of Russian military, and as of a few days ago has done the same for Russian scientists wanting to travel to the west. This includes I am told, all professors at the large extended Moscow university.  We were hosting one such Russian professor and heard of this.
