Tomorrow they will be done 75 days of war in Ukraine and 77 years since the end of another war etched into the memory of Europe. Everyone May 9 He Victory Day in Moscow and holiday commemorating the end of World War II in 1945, when Nazi Germany signed the surrender to the Soviet Union. 24 hours before the Allies did, including the military representation of the Red Army. Dictator Joseph Stalin – with which he agreed Adolf Gitler having partitioned Poland six years earlier, decided to republish the firm in Berlin in order to unilaterally regain its leading role. That is why they say that the Nazis surrendered twice.
After the fall of the USSR, the Russians buried these lavish displays of troops, tanks, planes and missiles until Vladimir Putin decided in 2005 that it was time to once again show the world the images of his entire arsenal and military power. It was this year that the Russian president began laying the foundations for his future energy influence in the Old Continent, with the invaluable help of the leaders of the European Union (EU): Jacques Chirac, Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero and Gerhard Schroeder. The Kremlin saw an opportunity to seduce the unwary and speculators at a summit that spawned Europe’s two major foreign policy neglects: energy supply and Ukraine.
Former German chancellor wins outright at Paris summit dinner (March 2005) his future signing with Russian energy conglomerates with his proposal to expand the lucrative oil and gas relationship offered by his friend Putin. There is no doubt that over time, Schröder earned his deferred paycheck, although it was not until 2022 that Germans and Europeans realized the move. at that dinner Russia’s alibi about its neutrality in relation to Ukraine was acceptedwho was undergoing a political turn towards the West after being drafted Orange Revolution and an assassination attempt on a pro-Western leader Viktor Yushchenko by poisoning, KGB stamp. replaced Victor Yanukovicha pro-Russian leader convicted of treason after he facilitated the Kremlin’s invasion and annexation of Crimea in 2014. Political changes in Ukraine since Petr Pososhenkopredecessor Vladimir Zelenskyprovoked the first resistance to the annexationist plans of Russia and the war in the Donbass.
This section is necessary to understand how socialist Germany Gerhard Schroeder and still impeccable conservative management Angela Merkel were implicated in Europe turning a blind eye to policy of destabilization of Ukraine sent from Moscow to restore the vassalage of their neighbor. You tell us whether this matter concerns us or not, and you will succeed, but the passage of time has ended the revelation of Putin’s great deception. Germany, the political heart of the EU, the economic powerhouse of the euro and its large transnational corporations, has become cheap and affordable oil and gas junkies offered Russia, in exchange for international support and, among other things, to veto Ukraine’s requests to join NATO and the EU, for which it had the most bloodthirsty plans: Crimea, Donbass and the total invasion of 2022.
Nabucco, an enemy of Schroeder and Berlusconi’s Nord Stream
The role of the energy “camel” now attributed to Putin would not have been possible without the connivance of the last three German chancellors. Schroeder stepped down from his post to become president of Nord Stream 1, the gas pipeline he was responsible for promoting when he was the German boss. He continued to defend the interests of Russia and the dignity of the Putin regime in front of The Merkel government, supported for years by Schröder’s “Grand Coalition” and his successor Olaf Scholz., acting chancellor. The smell of death on February 24 made it inevitable that Berlin unconditionally vetoed the implementation Nord Stream 2the twin gas pipeline is funded 100% by Moscow, like-minded oligarchs like a gang Mikhail Fridman and some other industrial partners joining the piquant project.
If a US intelligence agencies have already warned about the project as a potential economic weapon and political blackmail for Europe, how is it possible that no one in Brussels took it sensibly? Now that the “Pegasus Affair” is being used to criticize that the CNI is spying on a spy, maybe someone in the current government can explain Pedro Sánchez’s bizarre energy policy moves in 2021 when Russian oil purchases skyrocketed to levels not seen since Zapatero’s rule (oh lunch in Paris in 2005) and blew up privileged relations with Algeria for the supply of gas.
Although in Moncloa tear their clothes and now deny Russian gas and oilThe truth is that we have contributed and continue to contribute to the replenishment of Putin’s coffers, while he continues to crush Ukraine with his rockets and bombs. If there was counterintelligence (sorry, news services, not to be “cruel” as Sanchez Galán would say) by the CNI to inform the government, it is clear that the latest decision was 100% political. Now the European Union is in a hurry to impose a counter-embargo on Russian energy manna, which it cannot do without, except for supply crises and the threat of a social revolution. Paraphrasing the clairvoyant head of the Italian government Mario Draghi time to choose between “peace or air conditioning” due to the large weight of gas in electricity generation and Russia in his country’s supply, despite the fact that it even has several cross-border gas pipelines with North Africa. This is the legacy of yet another Putin puppet in Europe: the all-powerful former minister and television mogul (Mediaset), Silvio Berlusconi.
Do you remember pictures Mirek Topolanek at Villa Certosa in Cavaliere in 2009? Probably not, but the then Czech minister was touched on the eve of the election by “stolen”, in which he appeared naked and with an erection. He was also the rotating president of the European Council. Officially it was him, although he said there were photomontage retouches in the painful part. What was interesting was the setting. The €500 million mansion in Sardinia has long been Berlusconi’s favorite meeting place with Putin. Topolanek was a promoter and prominent project leader in Brussels. Nabuccoinfrastructure that was supposed to deliver gas to the center of Europe from Caspian Sea reduce dependence on Russia. It was the perfect counterpoint to the first Nord Stream and would partially correct the great European energy negligence, but the Czech turned out to be crucified, and a potential enemy of Russian gas has been deactivated.
What could have been was not, and now, despite the war in Ukraine and sanctions against Russia, Today, Europe continues to finance Russia with energy and other “commodities”. important to your industry. Only Germany bought from this country energy resources and basic materials for 25 billion euros a year, about 250 billion euros in a decade.. Schroeder, 78, who has held senior positions in the gas company Gazprom and the oil company Rosneft for many years, has not yet been declared persona non grata in his country, but should be, at least in the EU. As we aspired in October, Putin’s viral laughter about European controversies and his status as an energy figure at the economic forum in Berlin in 2010 there were few jokes and many warnings. Therefore, the state television company Rossiya Segodnya bailed them out to spread on social networks: “I don’t understand anything. Germans don’t like nuclear powerThey don’t develop it. They don’t like gas either… How are they going to warm themselves? With firewood? well, you should come too Siberia for firewood, you know?
