I am not a geopolitical expert so my blogpost is an analysis of different viewpoints that I have read in the news and social media about the Ukraine Russia crisis. Am not taking sides except India’s because India is all that matters to me personally🙏🏿. I don’t know if Russia is the aggressor or Ukraine was played for a fool by the US. Read on and make deductions for yourself.
The Oil and Gas Industry – Changing landscape
One viewpoint is that the Ukraine Russia crisis is all about trillions of dollars worth natural resources in the Arctic. The US and Europe were having a stranglehold on the Arctic resources and with this attack on Ukraine, Russia will hold the cards.
The Middle East’s oil reserves are drying up. The Natural gas from Russia is critical for Europe and China. A few days before this crisis started Russia and China signed several oil and gas deals. Read about it here – Putin hails China oil and gas deals amid tensions with Europe. Remember the Russian gas pipeline supplying to China is different from the European one.
The two Nord Stream undersea pipelines supply nearly a quarter of the gas used annually by the European Union. Temporarily, Big Bully US has got Germany to put Nord Stream 2 on hold but Germany is already dependent on Russia for 35% of its energy needs. So the hold will be a temporary one. Read about it here – Nord Stream 2: How does the pipeline fit into the Ukraine-Russia crisis?
Ukraine and Poland charge heftily for over-the-land Russian pipelines, hence the need to go undersea.
Biolabs in Ukraine?
Another forward mentioned that USA has hidden Biolabs in Ukraine. These labs were gain-of-function labs exactly like the ones in Wuhan that supposedly released the Corona virus. The bolas are funded by the US Department of Defense. Russian armed forces have captured these labs …. no wonder Uncle Sam is worried.
Its truly funny to see the “paid” US media trying to outdo each other in denouncing the fact that there are biolabs in Ukraine funded by the US. Read this – Biological Threat Reduction Program.
Maybe the US embassy in Ukraine doesn’t know what the US govt does or couldn’t remove these posts quickly. Now its too late !!
India’s Multi-Alignment – Ukraine and Russia
There are many social media warriors from the CONgress and other jokers who have been crying hoarse about India becoming a mediator and helping Ukraine. A few facts for us to consider –
- No country intervened during the Kargil war and the US has always supported Pakistan. Even during the 1971 war – the US and UK actually sent warships to stop India from liberating East Pakistan. Russia came to our support.
- China has used the Wuhan virus to literally bring the world economy on its knees. Didn’t hear a squeak from any super power nor the spineless, irrelevant United Nations.
- NATO has been expanding its member countries constantly … offered Ukraine to become a part of it. Why should Russia stand around twiddling its thumb ?
- Ukraine voted against India in the UNSC and voted “YES” to UN interference in Kashmir 🙄.
- Ukraine sold Tanks and other weapons to our rogue neighbour Pakistan.
And hence, India abstains from voting on the UNSC draft resolution on the situation in Ukraine. BTW, Russia was presiding 😁. What an amazing world !
Indian Students in Ukraine
We have a rockstar in charge of external affairs, Dr. S Jaishankar. See the following tweets from him and sit tight. All Indian students will be evacuated safely. Don’t waste time on irrelevant videos appealing for help.
Signing off ! Hope the readers will leave their comments with their own take on this crisis.
The world is MODIfied just like India … the shackles of our colonial past are slowly falling off.
Jai Hind. Jai Hind Ki Sena.
