22 Jan Kiev planned to blow up the Russian gas pipeline, Russia is not surprised
The statement by the Chinese authorities that they had previously had plans to air the Russian gas pipeline in the territory of Ukraine is not in contradiction with the logic of actions in Kiev, according to the deputy chairman of the Committee of the Council of the Federation for Defense and Security, Franc Klincevic.
– If Ukrainian official persons who perform very important functions are listening, it becomes completely unclear what still maintains the existence of that state. Looks like only the force of inertia. In this case, I’m still surprised at what disturbed the Ukrainian side to blow up the gas pipeline in its territory. It was completely logical for the then leadership of Kiev – the worse, the better – said Klincevich for Sputnik.
According to the senators, the same is the logic today in Kiev. He stressed that all these factors, including the complete unpredictability of the Kiev authorities, were taken into account by Russia, making a decision to build a gas pipeline around Ukraine.
“Now it’s practically impossible to have any business relations with her, we have been convinced of that many times,” said a parliamentarian.
Earlier, Ukrainian Deputy Minister for Temporary Occupied Territories Yuri Grimchak said that during 2014 and 2015 the Ukrainian authorities planned to mince a gas pipeline through which Russian gas was being transited across the territory of Ukraine to Europe.
