In 2024 the contract for the transit of Russian gas through Ukraine, for which Ukraine is paid good money, will come to an end. Then maybe the fun will begin

Western Democracy is when the government the people thought that they have elected decided alone and single-handedly that the people should pay a higher price for the commodities they use in their daily life e.g. gas.

One of the crucial components of the Western strategy in Europe, was to block Nord Stream 2.

While others may argue from a different perspective, it should be noted that over the last decade, Europe and with it, Germany in particular, had chosen to create a steadier and more reliable stream of natural gas. This was in line with the European quest to reduce it's carbon footprint. Germany, being the economic powerhouse of Europe, needed the Russian Natural Gas.

So with Europe steadied on Russian gas, it is America and a less relevant or significant Britain, saw the writing on the wall. A growing economic base between Europe and the Russian Federation, would question the validity of NATO. In fact, I believe it was the French President - Macron who questioned the validity of NATO in light of the European Union being the main trading partner with the Russian Federation. With NATO being disbanded, America will have to withdraw all of its military bases, weapons and soldiers, back Stateside. This would have seen Europe free of American influence in Europe and with Brexit, Britain's importance becomes next to nothing, in Europe.

By improvising the 7 year old Ukrainian issue with a torrent of lies and accusations, America has managed to achieve one of it's main objectives which was to null and void Nord Stream ll. Now Europe would have to buy either Scandinavian Gas or American LNG. Which means Europe will be entirely dependant on the West. And an America drowning itself in a $30 trillion pit, may have some reprieve from this.

Nevertheless it is not the Russian Federation who faces a set back by the suspension of Nord Stream ll. It is Europe who will suffer the most, as it already has started to suffer with its citizens paying ridiculously high energy bills. As you know, LNG doesn't come cheap and it's the American Oil & Gas corporations that are laughing their way to the bank. Just Europe will be the one to suffer the most, if war were to break out on the continent.

Again it is pitiful and pathetic to see Europeans being dictated to by the two Anglo States, who are not even located on the Continent of Europe.
Excellent post..

Gas Consumption:

Nord Stream 2 is a companion to Russia’s Nord Stream 1 pipeline, and it allows Russia’s Gazprom to double its natural gas capacity headed to Europe. Russia exported [URL='https://www.aljazeera.com/economy/2022/2/3/russia-ukraine-crisis-how-europe-may-cope-if-putin-shuts-off-gas']168 billion cubic meters [/URL]of natural gas to Europe in 2020. Germany bought 56 billion cubic meters of that. Italy and the Netherlands followed with 20 billion and 11 billion, respectively.

Ukraine's Loss:

Ukraine still has the most to lose. IHS Markit released a study that says Russian gas flows through Ukraine fell to historic lows in January—50 million cubic meters per day. That’s less than half the levels of a year ago. In February, however, such flow-throughs increased, but they are half of what they were between 2015-2020. Ukraine is dependent on the associated transit taxes to run its economy.

America's Gain:

LNG exporters and the [URL='https://www.forbes.com/sites/kensilverstein/2021/10/03/if-tellurians-charif-souki-is-right-lngs-prospects-are-golden/?sh=65f7331e641e']United States have the most to gain[/URL]. European LNG imports increased in January to 34% of its total. In contrast, the continent imported much less from Russia, which made up just 17% during the month. The report says that Europe has ample LNG re-gasification capacity — from the frozen state. It also says that it could safely draw down some storage levels.

Europe's Suffering:

IHS warns, however, that if all Russian exports stopped, it would create a “supply deficit” that no amount of increased LNG imports could satisfy. To that end, Russia has been accused of jacking up its natural gas prices to apply pressure on Germany to permit its Nord Stream 2 plant. Indeed, Europe’s natural gas prices have risen by a factor of five in recent months. Correspondingly, Russia’s state-owned gas monopoly [URL='https://ir.gazprom-neft.com/news-and-events/news/2021/gazprom-neft-delivers-10-fold-growth-of-net-profit-for-9m-2021/']Gazprom[/URL] earned at least [URL='https://www.aa.com.tr/en/energy/finance/gazproms-export-revenue-increases-120-in-2021/34581']$55 billion[/URL] last year.

Short term Russian Plan:

Notably, Russia and China are bonding, and their energy ties are strengthening. Russia provided 5% of China’s oil in 2005. That will now grow significantly to $270 billion over 25 years.

Russia ia never going to withdraw
Will pakistan with draw on kashmir

These are russian peoples that got stuck in ukrain during communist resdistribution of boundries

I am surprised russia waited for 8 yrs
Redistribution, or colonization?

The Russians use the excuse of Russian citizens all the time to justify invasion. If Russians existed in Pakistan in large enough numbers, you can bet the Soviets wouldn't have stopped at Afghanistan.

Geopolitics.

NATO expands its borders while promising not to do so, and Russia invades its neighbours using lies.

The alternatives may see slow motion Russia dismemberment. I guess Putin feels it is better to solve the Ukraine problem during his reign, as he is a strong ruler to do it. His successor may not have the power to do it.

His successor will certainly be significantly weaker than him, and will likely be a puppet to whatever oligarch managed to put him in power.

I don't see Russia's current borders staying this big, post-Putin. I fully expect to see Russia disintegrate to a much smaller state, in the decades that follow after Putin is no longer in power.

All the better for China though, as it would completely turn Russia into China's junior partner, and remove Russia as a competitor in Central Asia.

That is the reason Putin need to start this initiative. Russia may not have yet another Putin that is able pull off such strategic thrust. Such ambient will allow Russian patriots to ascend and Anglophile be sideline.
