Belarus Blocked Transit of Gas from Lithuania to the Ukraine

On Thursday, Indra Milinene, spokesman for GTS Klaipedos Nafta, told BNS that Belarus didn’t allow transit of gas from planned LNG terminals to the Ukraine, “Both we and the Ukrainian side are interested in this, we see that there are opportunities for coöperation, but the Belarusian side refused us. We’ll make every effort to deliver LNG to the Ukraine, which, for its part, is also looking for coöperation from Belarus. We could deliver about a billion cubic metres of gas a year to the Ukraine. The Klaipeda LNG terminal could ship the gas through Belarus for transhipment to the Ukraine”. In mid-April, Lithuanian Energy Minister Rokas Masiulis claimed that a Poland-Lithuania gas pipeline could supply gas to the Ukraine. Lithuanian Ministry of Energy is developing changes in energy laws, which will allow Statoil to import gas and sell it whilst it’s still at sea, and not in the pipeline. As we reported earlier, on 4 June Hungary resumed pumping gas to the Ukraine.

This is tied in with John McCain’s vacuous boasts about supplying European and Ukrainian gas needs with notional American supplies. Firstly, American demand totally consumes American production. Secondly, American production has plateaued, and many jurisdictions now ban fracking, which will further reduce production. Thirdly, the storage and transit infrastructure isn’t in place. Fourthly, the drop in oil prices means that energy conglomerates have less to invest in exploration, exploitation, and infrastructure. In short, the Balts and Ukrops are grasping at flimsy reeds.

Now, Belarus bans transit shipments… without which, the American plans fall into the gutter. Aleksandr Grigoryevich has obviously decided that the Ukrops and their Anglo American sugar daddies are going to lose the war. The only way to secure the Belarus gas route is to invade… but Belarus has guarantees from Russia, with Russian forces permanently stationed on its territory. If there’s any chance at all of conflict… it’s here. Yes… the Americans could get desperate if their greedster oligarch paymasters get antsy enough. THIS is where there’s the greatest danger… note well that the stupid American media says nothing of this. It tells you much of their intelligence, doesn’t it? It’s why I hold Dreher, Freddie M-G, Serge Schmemann, Terrence Mattingly, Sofia Kishkovskaya, and Potapov in such contempt. They’re willing whores of the media machine… sworn to tell you untruth, the whole untruth, and nothing but untruth… or they don’t collect their pay packet.

America has never hesitated to go to war over energy in the last 25 years… ponder that… ponder Belarus’ intent to defy the USA. It’s a meaty thought, isn’t it?

Today, Natalya Shvets, the Deputy Head of Administration for Lutugino Raion told us that more than 100 local kids went on holiday to the Zarya Camp in Kursk Oblast and to the Crimean resort of Solnechnogorsk near Alushta. The first group of kids, made up of 50 gifted children aged 14 to 17 years, gathered today at the RGA* building at 04.00. From there, the buses went to Zarya Camp via the Izvarino border-crossing point. At 11.00, buses took another 55 children to a camp on the Crimean coast of the Black Sea in Solnechnogorsk near Alushta. Shvets said, “This year was very difficult emotionally for kids, as many of them couldn’t go out anywhere due to the fighting; they spent all last summer with their parents in bunkers and bomb shelters. Gradually, life in the Republic is normalising, but most parents still can’t afford to send their kids to camp, nor can they afford holidays for the whole family to relax together. Therefore, we’re very grateful to our Russian friends, who‘re taking in our kids from the LNR. We plan to send 200 children to the Crimea; another 200 will holiday in summer camps in Rostov Oblast and Krasnodar Krai”.

Today, Chairman of the DNR Government A V Zakharchenko told journalists that former Yenakiyevo Mayor Roman Khramenkov will be the Acting Head of the Gorlovka GMA*, “I want to introduce you to a man who was the mayor of Yenakiyevo. From now on, he’ll head Gorlovka. We’re transferring him from one city to another. He earned our trust by his work in Yenakiyevo, where he established policies, so, he’d understand how to work here. I’d ask you to welcome and support him”. During the fighting in the Debaltsevo Pocket in February, as mayor in Yenakiyevo, Khramenkov gained notice for his competence in evacuating villages ravaged in the battle. Immediately after the DNR forces liberated Debaltsevo, Khramenkov took on the task of planning repairs in Uglegorsk and built the first new roads under DNR auspices. Khramenkov told Zakharchenko, “At this stage, we’ll work together with you, and thanks to your support, we’ll restore the good name of Gorlovka, to rebuild its civil society”. Roman Khramenkov was born in 1978, having lived in Yenakiyevo since 1998. He completed higher education in medicine and administration, and he’s taken some legal studies.
