Ukrainian authorities decision to halt gas supplies to Donetsk amid the ongoing humanitarian catastrophe occurring there “bear the hallmarks of genocide,” blasted Russia’s Vladimir Putin during an awkward press conference with Cyprus’ President Nicos Anastasiades (who he had just agreed bilateral military and trade deals with). “Apparently, some responsible leaders of the modern-day Ukraine are unable to understand the importance of humanitarian issues,” Sputnik News reports Putin concluded. In an attempt to gain leverage and force Ukraine’s hand however, Russia’s Gazprom has indicated it intends to suspend gas deliveries to Ukraine (and thus Europe via pipelines) unless Kiev makes a further prepayment.

Amid the cease-less-fire, Vladimir Putin is displeased…

Russian President Vladimir Putin said Wednesday the decision of the Ukrainian authorities to halt gas supplies to Donetsk amid the ongoing humanitarian catastrophe “bear hallmarks of genocide”.

“As if hunger [in Donetsk and Luhansk] was not enough – the OSCE has already stated that the region is experiencing a humanitarian catastrophe –  they had their gas supplies cut off. What would you call it? I would say this bears the hallmarks of genocide,” he said during a meeting with President of Cyprus Nicos Anastasiades.

“Apparently, some responsible leaders of the modern-day Ukraine are unable to understand the importance of humanitarian issues. It seems that the very notion of humanism has been forgotten,” he added.

And, in apparently unconnected news, Russia intends to suspend gas deliveries to Ukraine unless Kiev makes a further prepayment as its current balance only covers three or four days’ gas supply, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Wednesday…

“Prepayments, made by Ukrainian side, are enough for three – four days. If [further] payment is not made, Gazprom, in compliance with this contract, will halt the [gas] supplies,” Putin said at a press conference.

“Naturally, it may create a certain threat for the transit to Europe,” Putin added.

Ukraine’s state energy company Naftogaz on Monday accused Russia’s Gazprom of failing to deliver the gas for which Kiev had prepaid.

According to a statement by the company’s press service, Gazprom was to deliver 114 cubic meters both on February 22 and February 23 but supplied only 47 and 39 million cubic meters on these dates instead, respectively.

On Tuesday, Gazprom head Alexei Miller, in turn, said that the amount of gas prepaid by Ukraine was estimated at 219 million cubic meters, enough for a couple of days only.

Kiev’s massive gas debt, exceeding $5 billion at the time, forced Moscow to suspend gas deliveries to Ukraine for nearly six months in 2014. Deliveries resumed in early December under the so-called winter package deal, mediated by the European Union and signed by Gazprom and Naftogaz. The deal stipulated that Ukraine must pay Russia in advance for all future gas supplies.

So, in summary, as UAH crashes into hyperinflation, the IMF (and US taxpayers’) funds will be merely a direct funds transfer from the West to Russia (for gas supply services rendered) and Putin take the ‘eye for an eye’ analogy one step further – cut off supply to Donetsk and we cut off supply to everyone…

    Unfortunately Jean, I estimate that >99% of Americans are almost completely ignorant of the war in Ukraine. As long as something doesn’t directly affect them, complacency rules. People over there can die by the droves, and firstly none of this reaches our news outlets, and secondly – outside of mercs – we don’t directly have a dog in the fight. No direct relations of Americans are starving, freezing, getting blown to bits, losing everything they had which wasn’t much to start with, or winding up homeless in the street in middle of winter. The casualties can triple or quintuple, and still there’s no outcry – in America – for these poor people over there. The Ukraine is much closer to Europe’s back yard, so people all over Europe are TRULY TRULY concerned, unlike Americans isolated by two giant oceans and preoccupied with the latest sports scores. Besides, msm tells us that its all the fault of the bad Rooskies, so its not “our” concern. Very sadly, indeed, thousands more will die and the sheeple STILL won’t know or care whats going on. I hate to say it, but I cant help but sometimes sort of half way agree with Agenda 21, tho I have to remind myself its really media, not the people, who is at fault. If we had truthful media coverage, I don’t think the sheeple would remain as silent as they have. Europe is far more sympathetic as Ukrainians – and Russians to for that matter – are considered fellow Europeans ethnically, politically, and geographically – AND its likely they have better news coverage. The only reason Americans “cant get along” with Russia is mostly a function of our elite’s psychopathic power trip and their sick visions of global domination regurgitated by media. The actual citizens of both nations would likely gladly sit together over a cold beer much rather than confront each other in arms.

  2. Mr. Poroshenko- this is not a humane way to treat civilians- especially those of your opponent. Reconsider this decision; you and your gov’t will lose- all the way around; and in every arena you operate in. Reconsider.

    Gene it sounds like you are in a lot of pain. Your soul cries out for justice.
    Do not fear as EVERYTHING is in perfect order…Watch as the BRAZEN trip and fall.
    This year will be full of happy times. A new start for this world, as the old man upstairs steps up to the plate at last.
    We were never alone.

      No, I am not in a lot of pain, but I am filled with anger at the insanity of it all . . . I realize everything is in perfect order, but I think it our responsibility to help that order move forward . . . if we sleep, then the cabal will have its way😉 Hugs, ~Jean
