DISINFO: US wants to completely capture European gas market
The United States intends to capture the energy market of the European Union. Using the Tripartite Agreement between the United States, Poland and Ukraine, Washington wants to make most of Europe on the dependent of American gas and take control of the transit capacities of the Ukrainian gas transportation system.
This disinformation message is a reaction to the signing of the trilateral agreement between Ukraine, Poland and the United States on 31 August. This agreement will help Kуiv increase the country's energy security and not depend solely on the Kremlin. Thanks to this agreement, this year, Ukraine will already receive gas from the United States. Liquefied natural gas from the United States will arrive in the Polish terminal Swinoujscie in November this year. Currently, in order to obtain large volumes of gas through Poland, Ukraine needs to build about 100 kilometres of interconnector from the nearest gas storage to the border in order to combine its gas transmission system with the Polish one. At the same time, the United States will have absolutely no influence on the gas transmission systems of Poland and Ukraine. In fact, there can be no talk of any “American gas needle”, since in the future Ukraine will be able to receive gas not only from the United States, but also from other countries. For example, the Baltic Pipe gas pipeline under construction from Norway to Poland by 2022 will provide additional resources to Central and Eastern Europe, including Ukraine.
