The truth is that Russia is feeding Europe. All those farts in fancy suits and talking about banking system- they came to meet because Russia paid for it.

Lets do the math: transit of the gas is 2 (Russia) to 5 (in Ukraine) dollars per 1000 cm 100 km. Average distance is about 2000 km, makes 400 to 1000 just for the transit.

Russian gas is FREE! Europe doesn’t have any leverage against Russia because it is FREE!

Mind the tax load of 200% most of the Europe put on top.

In fact, Gazprom has nothing to do with high prices of gas in Europe.
