Ukraine parliament approves first reading of sanctions against Russia



All the amendments could be adopted and go through on a second reading on Tuesday, said Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk.

Last week Ukraine’s Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk introduced a bill to parliament sanctioning Russia that included a ban on all transit through its territory.

The bill contained 26 restrictions on Russia, but the most controversial was a ban on energy transit. Yatsenyuk hopes this will help halt his country’s dependence on Russian gas, but the EU might be hurt the hardest. Europe gets about 15 percent of its gas requirements from Russia, with the Baltic States, Finland, Bulgaria and the Czech Republic a hundred percent dependent on Russian supplies.


So Ukraine will not allow russian gas to be transported to the rest of Europe. Thursday they will vote for this in Ukraine's parlement.

Wonder how Europe will react if this becomes reality.

I imagine they can only get even more upset with the US. The US is really the government that is being all this and pushing it so hard, to cause friction between the Ukraine and Russia, centered around oil sales. We're the ones having to keep nagging our European allies to follow our example and put sanctions on Russia, when they really don't want to.

More specifically I think it'll bring more European anger against western oil companies and financial institutions, since these are the people who are so hellbent on preventing Russia from breaking the US dollar monopoly on oil sales in Europe.
