    Putin: No More Gas Discounts for Ukraine Under Current Oil Prices


    http://sputniknews.com/russia/20150624/1023786997.html

    "Moscow can no longer give Ukraine gas discounts due to the current drop in oil prices", Russian President Vladimir Putin said Tuesday. The price must be on level of other countries like Poland, he added.

    DETAILS TO FOLLOW

    Good move. Now Russia actually has a very good excuse. Not that they didn't have it before.

    Russia doesn't need an excuse to stop selling its own products to a foreign country at a discount. Don't know why Putin is even mentioning any of this; he should just drop the discount - no explanations offered nor needed.

    It was clear by late 2014 that there was no point for Russia to intervene directly. The Novorussian forces held off the aggressors
    and Banderastan was in the process of sliding into the toilet. By invading, Russia would get all the blame for everything including the
    economic collapse. So let them eat cake and each other.

    Back to news. I like this statement by Zakharchenko today.
    I believe in Novorossiya, I believe it will exist. I even know that it is most likely that it will be created very quickly. Opponents and enemies do not expect it to happen quickly, but it will happen anyway. Soon we will see
    Zakharchenko said this in the context that while DNR and LNR first have to join, Novorossiya will be more than that. Now, he trolls ukrops at times with various statements, but I think here we can believe what he says, I do.

    In Historic Shift, Russia Overtakes Saudi Arabia As China's Number One Oil Supplier

    And while the recent drawdown in oil exporters’ petrodollar reserves suggests Saudi Arabia’s actions were sufficient in and of themselves to catalyze the system’s demise, the US has accelerated the process by backing economic sanctions on Russia which, starting this year, began to settle oil and natural gas exports to China in yuan, marking what we have hailed as the the intersection of two critically important themes that have far-reaching geopolitical and economic consequences: 1) the death of petrodollar mercantilism, and 2) the idea of yuan hegemony.

    In “The PetroYuan Is Born: Gazprom Now Settling All Crude Sales To China In Renminbi”, we argued that as economic ties between China and Russia deepen (thanks to billions in currency swap lines and the construction of the new Western gas line which will deliver an additional 30bcm/y to China on top of the 38bcm/y which will flow through the “Power of Siberia” line once operational) Beijing could increasingly look to Moscow to meet China’s energy needs. This would of course only serve to further de-dollarize the global energy trade, dealing yet another blow to the petrodollar system. Sure enough, Russia has, for the first time in history, overtaken Saudi Arabia as China’s top oil supplier

    So the Russian energy sector is making headway in getting around the effect of Western sanctions.

    wow, didn't expect that. Thanks for sharing.
    can anyone fill me in on what exactly is this hearing and how important is it? I'm not too familiar with the structure of the US gov. beyond what I saw on House of Cards...

    btw, CD, are you by any chance a listener of Dan Carlin's Podcast? I think you might like his way of approaching this (and probably many other subjects).


    No, I've never listened to him at all. I can find him on the internet???

    Maybe someone else filled you in on exactly what the hearing is and how important it is. IDK. I'll have to think about it, if no one else did.

    I think it's pretty awesome tho, that she's caught on video lying to Congress.

    I suggest everyone to check out Dan Calrin's Podcast.

    On the subject of Ukraine, here are the episodes he made:
    Show 270 Poking the Bear -

    Show 271 Cashing the Doomsday Check - https://youtu.be/Z3WT_378Fsg

    you can also find them on his official website: http://www.dancarlin.com/
    If you like history, especially the military side of it, I strongly suggest checking out his other series called Hardcore History.
    In the context of the Ukraine Crisis, you'll probably like the way he describes the American change of course from an isolationist to an interventionist power during WW1 in this episode

    This is the central point why Russia should not invade Ukraine. There is nothing to save. They need to learn how to live
    in the cesspool all on their own. They can keep on hating Russia and Russians as they adapt to their new life. I am very
    much against any sort of help for these congenital idiots. Russia has blown $300 billion in welfare of one sort or another for
    then since the 1990s. Instead of gratitude it got a generation of genocidal hater imbeciles to blame Russia for everything
    including their VD. Let Washington feed them. Laughing

    Good move. Now Russia actually has a very good excuse. Not that they didn't have it before.

    Russia doesn't need an excuse to stop selling its own products to a foreign country at a discount. Don't know why Putin is even mentioning any of this; he should just drop the discount - no explanations offered nor needed.


    That is what everyone expects Russia to do, drop discount and not say anything. In the media it would be portrayed as Russia being new USSR as usual.

    What they don't expect is polite statement with truckload of media articles and paperwork. It's all about subverting stereotypes and making journalists look like morons.

    And this way there is extra bonus of that awkward silence between Poland and Ukraine...

    Russia is swamped with Ukrainian female workforce turning to "the oldest profession" due to crisis

    Oldest profession of the "oldest nation"

    http://fortruss.blogspot.com/2015/06/russia-is-swamped-with-ukrainian-female.html

    Ukrainian citizens make up half of all prostitutes in Moscow, reported the senior inspector of public order protection of the main directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Moscow, police colonel, Alexander Ivanov:

    "Out of 20 people, 8-9 are from Ukraine. Street prostitution has increased by 70-80% compared with residential. The situation is similar in St. Petersburg. There increased the number of Ukrainian actresses, specializing in the making of "adult films".

    According to the director Sergei Pryanishnikov, if earlier, about 70% of actresses were Ukrainians, currently it's at least 90%.

    Note that the Ukrainian prostitutes present serious "competition" to all the other prostitutes in Europe. Apparently, this was the goal of Maidan with its promises to establish a visa-free regime with the EU.

    On a side note... i noticed in one video uploaded several pages ago..
    a so called documentary ,that tried to humanize the Ukie army.. genocide..
    showing how lovely they are with their families.. completely ignoring the warcrimes
    they commit every day.. in Donetsk and Lugansk.. and it seems one of the main
    stunts on the documentary aside of trying to look "objective" and "showing" both sides
    of the story. (but ignoring the genocide on civilians by kiev). It appears they re-used
    a civilian Actor mature women in the 50's ,that was also used in a VICE documentary under
    a totally different script.  Basically she was complaining why the Rebels go and fight in their
    villages the ukie army ,so later the Ukrainian artillery fall on their homes..

    What she do not mention/neither the documentary.. is that the pro Kiev forces shell Deep inside
    DOnetsk and lugansk beyond the combat zone.. forcing the Rebels to go on the offensive in the
    contact line and push the CIAnazis farther away of their zones. In other words.. there is no other way for Rebels to fight if not by land pushing from their original positions towards the enemy positions ..and in some cases ,this travel can only happen entering civilian zones.. and in no other way.  

    So the complain to OSCE..in a theatrical acting..of her is why they Rebels move to their villages to fight kiev forces and not go to another place.. (instead of complaining to OSCE about the people that are directly responsible for killing them. .)   Which is a completely back ass logic.. The Rebels are trying to kill the forces that kills them..indiscriminately not only in places
    where they at times needs to move.. but most times in places they never have been.. ie hospitals.. schools and deep inside DOnetsk and Lugansk.

    So i warn people about massive new campaign by US and NEOCONs to blame the rebels for the
    casualties of civilians.. and not the people who drop the bombs.  Rolling Eyes  and what appears to be
    new hired ACTORS... to demonize not only Rebels but RUssia. Claiming the Rebels enter their houses and steal their money.. imagine that.. but no Single mention in VICE of how pro Kiev forces bomb their villages. Rolling Eyes

    So i perceive a new propaganda campaign using civilians ACTORS operating in Rebels controlled zones...that..
    1)Completely Ignores Ukrainian bombing on civilians cities and positions of only civilians
    are located and nothing else..every single day.
    2)COmpletely ignores Ukrainian bombing of Hospitals ,Schools ,Water plants ,Electricity plants to destroy Donetsk economy and create a major humanitarian disaster.
    3)And that is now blaming the Rebels for the civilians casualties..  instead of blaming
    the people committing the crime:roll:

    If the ukrainian army enters a village ..anywhere under zones controlled by Rebels..
    How are they supposed to kick them out without entering the village?   Neutral

    This are question ,that 99.8% of the people who watch VICE or any other western documentary
    will not ask.. when observing such documentaries.. of "independent media" reports.

    It will be similar as if terrorist enter your town to kill civilians women and children.. and police
    enter theres to kick them OUT of the place.. but people instead of complaining against the terrorist.. go an complain in cameras.. about "why the police do not go to another place and do
    the fighting away of their residences. " ?  Is this moronic logic?  Indeed it is.. And this is being
    part of western new information war.. in not only miminizing as "Exageration" and "collateral damage" the killing of civilians.  But also at even blaming the Rebels .Rolling Eyes  
    for (indirectly causing) the killing of civilians by kiev ,in the zones they are supposed to defend.


    What will be next claim of such new civilians hired actors?
    That no civilians will have been killed had the Rebels stopped fighting and gave up their weapons? and this argument is one that trolls usually brings to the table when defending
    kiev.. image that.. Rolling Eyes  explain that to odessans.. who were burned alive and carried no weapons,, they will have a big laugh about this ridiculous suggestion of giving up your arms
    at a government that no only wants to kill anyone who oppose them.. but also that have openly
    spoken and made laws ,to create concentration camps for all civilians who complained against
    the government and never took weapons but that expressed sympathy for the Rebels.

    Western Media new Information war.. are now using ACTORS.. that will cry tears and rage
    at OSCE , or at Rebels. with Cameras in the right moment to capture the whole script. I think
    i have seen already 3 different reports.. 2 of VICE and one of another media.. of such actors..
    that they Re-USE.. so pay close attention to the civilian faces in VICE and other western media reports. The most hillarious propaganda ..was the one of Selie soldiers.. if not mistaken.. that
    claimed the Rebels steal their Vodka and ask money..and Russian army being more polite. lol1

    No I hope this can be brought under control. Rampant prostitution in Moscow is a scary throwback to the Yeltsin years. Obviously no where near the same scale... But still a shame.

    That's what women often do when they are poor from unemployment, the solution is not make them poor, give them jobs back in Ukraine. Kiev doesn't look like they are really working on that. Moscow could ramp up the casual workforce too as a stop gap, not sure how. Then there is always the chance the problem isn't as bad as the story makes out.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but I heard that the pimps, mafia and human traffickers usually catch Ukrainian women for prostitution. Is that due to social/economic/politic problems in that country ?

    Priceless, and how true, how very true.

    I don't.

    Even Donetsk's/Lugansk's next-door neighbours (with partial exception of Kharkov) are chanting 'death to Moskals!'
    Then what you say is that DNR/LNR will be merged or a decades long frozen conflict. I do not see that possibility at all.

    This is the central point why Russia should not invade Ukraine.   There is nothing to save.  They need to learn how to live
    in the cesspool all on their own.    They can keep on hating Russia and Russians as they adapt to their new life.   I am very
    much against any sort of help for these congenital idiots.   Russia has blown $300 billion in welfare of one sort or another for
    then since the 1990s.   Instead of gratitude it got a generation of genocidal hater imbeciles to blame Russia for everything
    including their VD.   Let Washington feed them.   Laughing
    You make a very broad statement without exclusions. Who are these "congenital idiots"? only banderas, or everybody? Are they "congenital idiots" in Odessa, or even in Donbass. And if Washington ends up feeding them, no matter who "them" are, then Washington will also have it's military bases there.

    I refer to this article by Rostislav Ishchenko that is used as a template for a number of posts here and other places as to how the situation should unfold, and it does not include "merging" or letting Americans into Ukraine, but about all Ukraine returning to Russia. What Ishchenko writes can be taken as the "official - unofficial" plan in broad outline. It is against military action to achieve this, but any argument about that aside, the end result would be the same. Welcome home "congenital idiots" will be the cry at some time in the future?, or welcome home brothers who were led astray, and welcome to those who now sit in SBU prisons in Odessa, Dnepropetrovsk, Zaporozhia, Kharkov and other cities. http://cont.ws/post/95889

    Prostitutes from Rostov complaining about Ukrainian prostitutes driving down prices it's not a serious long term problem since it could be expected as a consequence of ATO but a surge in street prostitution in Moscow, St. Petersburg and other not bordering cities it's not something to laugh at for the short, medium and long term serious ramifications (organised crime, public health, poverty pockets, etc.).

    While those that do it on their own will mainly do it out of necessity, women that forcefully end up in prostitution rings usually do it because they're extorted and/or deceived into it.

    Spain and Italy are the main destinations for Ukrainian women and most of those involved in organised prostitution can be divided in two categories. The first group usually consists of young women (many of them single mothers or with relatives suffering from health conditions) from poor regions looking for prospects to support their families. Human traffickers usually go after them because they can be indebted easily by advancing part of the money they need. Since they can't pay they're forced to accept working into foreign countries but this women rarely fulfil the requirements to enter legally in EU so they're smuggled into it and consequently further indebted. Taking advantage over their illegal status they're forced into street prostitution under threats to their family to prevent they can run away. The second group are usually students that are lured into traveling abroad by their own means for a nonexistent job that usually translates into being secluded into a brothel without outside contact, this group is also a lot more valuable for traffickers because they can make hefty amounts of money in a short period of time prior to being sent back to Ukraine.

    This is the kind of stuff I love to read. Very clear and to the point. Not that this should be taken as the "official" plan like you say but IMHO it comes very near to the position that Moscow takes. I wonder what lever the author is talking about when he mentions that Washington already developed a plan for a greater war. Transnistria maybe?
