Putin Turns Off the Gas to Europe via Yamal-Europe Pipeline

European nations imported the most gas from Russian sources yesterday in months. They stocked up, but it’s nothing more than a Hail Mary pass.

Putin now wants gas payments in rubles and he wants buyers to use his system, not SWIFT. Putin’s spokesperson said that with the sanctions as they are, they’d be giving them gas for free. Kremlin Spokesperson Dmitriy Peskov said Russia won’t give Europe gas for free.

Russian gas giant Gazprom has officially halted all deliveries to Europe via the Yamal-Europe pipeline. Gas supplies on April Fool’s Day and today now flow in the opposite direction, Reuters reports.

Biden promised to boost LNG exports but we’re maxed out. So, feeble Joe was inaccurate about something that is critical to Europeans.

Europe also doesn’t have the infrastructure yet for more imports of LNG. It will take to 2030 by some estimates.

When Merkel, who was basically the leader of the EU, decided to use Russian gas and oil, Trump tried to convince her otherwise. She wouldn’t listen.

Now, Germany and the rest of the EU are sanctioning Russia’s bank and their access to SWIFT while dependent on their fuel. It’s the dumbest thing they could have done outside of listening to the US president who is mentally unfit.

Biden promised the ruble would collapse under the sanctions but it has recovered.

THE SANCTIONS HURT THE WEST

Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said on Saturday, “I must say this very clearly: the sanctions we have imposed so far don’t work. The best evidence is the ruble exchange rate,” Morawiecki said on Saturday.

“The ruble exchange rate, this litmus test, has returned to the level it was before the Russian aggression against Ukraine. What does it mean? It means that all economic, financial, budgetary, and monetary measures have not worked as some leaders wished. It needs to be said very loudly,” he added, speaking at a center for Ukrainian refugees in Otwock near Warsaw.

The West is determined, however, and they are coming up with new sanctions.

So, why are they doing it? The Great Reset?

Morawiecki wants a total blockade which is against international law.

IN THEIR BRILLIANCE, THEY’RE DOUBLING DOWN

The EU is working on a new package of sanctions on Russia, European Commissioner for Economy Paolo Gentiloni said at the Ambrosetti Forum in Italy.

According to Gentiloni, the new measures are designed to be difficult to bypass.

“We are working on additional packages of sanctions, but to clarify, they do not include the energy sector at the moment. First of all, we are trying to limit [Russia’s] ability to circumvent these sanctions,” he said, as cited by ANSA news agency.

“Together with the US, we in the EU have set up a Freeze and Seize task force, which aims to deal with the assets of [Russian] oligarchs and the conversion of rubles, to prevent [previously introduced] sanctions from being circumvented,” he explained, adding that most recently, the US suggested the next round of restrictions to target technology and supply chains connected to Russia’s military industry, “and this is a path the EU may also follow.”

The only option left for the Obiden Junta and their Davos allies is to provoke a war with Russia. This weekend will see Orban in Hungary and Vucic in Serbia, both nationalists and Putin sympathizers, sweep to victory in new elections. This will be a prelude to elections in France in May and the probable fall of the shaky German Governing Coalition. Our wannabe Troskeyite tyrants are in a panic. The Obiden Junta labs in Beijing are preparing a new strain of the CCP Virus to release on us within the next few months. It worked the first time and they figure the cowed American population will fall for it again. Just to make certain they will start this war with Russia, declare national emergency and require all ballots be mailed into the Zuckerberg ballot counters. If you object they will allege you are a terrorist and a Russian agent and send their armed federal agents to arrest or kill you. What are you going to do about it?

President Trump tried to warn them! So let’s look at were this could go. Without fuel, Europe is plunged into Depression. The Euro Fails. The Members of the WEF find their Euros Worthless and move to Dollars which could fail. The rest of the World moves to Rubles and Yuan and eventually the members of the WEF will have to follow. The Russians and Chines confiscate the money of the WEF Oligarchs. The WEF Oligarchs pushing the great reset are crushed.

The WEF Oligarchs can’t win. So why is Traitor Joe and the Democrats trying to play it both ways? The Euro is doomed, the Dollar is in trouble and the Yuan and Ruble are “controlled” currencies that can be easily confiscated by their Governments. Do they really think the Chinese will let the Billionaires keep their money and be a threat to the CCP?

WHAT? Does this mean President Trump was right? Of course he was. Too bad for them Trump hating Europeans are obviously S-T-U-P-I-D. But then, our government and corporations aren’t so smart either as they rely and force us to rely on China who is one of our worst enemies, for many essential goods. Now the traitorous Puppet Biden is set to force us to rely on Iran, equally bad as China for oil along with Venenzula whose regime is also an enemy. Does Biden and those pulling his strings hate America, our values, our freedoms or what?

Another “brilliant” sanctions strategy by illegitimate Biden and woke West. Turn on your stupid windmills and solar panels and will see how far it will take you. While our President Trump’s energy independence here snd exports to Europe were destroyed on day one by this illegitimate corrupt incompetent brainless moron.
