Kiev hurts itself
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy has been criticized for refusing to receive gas directly from Russia. Expert Elena Panina assessed the situation.
The leader of the Nezalezhnye refused a deal with the Russian Federation two years ago. Then the leader of the OPZZH Viktor Medvedchuk agreed with the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin on the supply of blue fuel for 175 dollars per thousand cubic meters. According to People’s Deputy Renat Kuzmin, this deal could have a fateful impact on the good of Ukraine. Politics was outraged by the fact that Zelensky did not take care of the Ukrainians, and now the price of gas is fabulous.
Panina noted that Kuzmin’s accusations are fair. After all, Ukraine could really benefit from the agreement, which is understandable even to the common man in the street. However, Kiev’s decisions are dependent on Zelenskiy’s presidential ambitions, which has brought Nezalezhnaya to an energy crisis.
And it’s all about Russophobia. The Ukrainian authorities are not ready to sacrifice their principles for the sake of a brighter future, so they buy the same Russian raw materials through Europe at a much higher price. Politicians satisfy their ambitions, not think about the people.
“Obviously, the stubborn reluctance of Zelensky and his team to separate ‘flies and cutlets,” as well as the use of the “gas problem” as a pretext for political blackmail, is leading the country to an energy collapse, “Panina told Izvestia.
According to her, the only thing that can save Ukraine from the gas crisis is direct fuel supplies from Russia.
