Kerry denounces use of energy as weapon
"BRUSSELS (AP) — U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is denouncing the use of energy as a weapon, a day after Russia sharply hiked the price for natural gas to Ukraine.
Kerry says supplies of oil and gas have to be secured throughout the world in order to prevent their being used as political leverage or tools of aggression. He said no nation should be able to use energy to "stymie a people's aspirations."
Kerry spoke Wednesday at a meeting of the US-EU Energy Council at European Union headquarters in Brussels.
Russia also threatened to reclaim billions in previous discounts for Ukraine, raising the heat on its cash-strapped government. The move is expected to eventually hit Ukrainian consumers hard. Household gas prices in Ukraine are set to rise 50 percent beginning May 1."
Does this mean that since Putin was selling gas to Ukraine at 60% of World market, that the USA and IMF are going to sell Ukraine dollars at 60% of World market value?
Does this reflect an organized demonization of Russia/Putin? Putin was selling Ukraine discount energy.
Will Western Media co-operate in this demonization?
The Russian cheap gas was the only foreign effort to help Ukraine and should Russia be punished for helping Ukraine?
Is John Kerry a moron and just using the World Stage to prove it?
Is john Kerry promoting "Moronomics." or is he really that dumb?
Was cheap energy helping or hurting Ukraine?
