Russian State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin said on Friday that the United States ruling class has doomed Europe to hunger and cold. Europe will also suffer isolation, as the U.S. continues to pressure the bloc to cut all ties with Moscow.
Volodin wrote on Telegram that Washington would “stop at nothing to cling to its power over the world as it throws under the bus the citizens’ welfare and the economies of European countries to achieve this end.” He noted that natural gas in the U.S. costs $333 per 1,000 cubic meters. “At the same time, Washington sells it to Europe for a price which is 7.3 [times] higher, rendering the EU economy uncompetitive,” he wrote, adding that the eurozone’s annual inflation rate had hit a record 8.9%.
“US policies in Europe are enforced by England that has left the EU high and dry, as well as by a number of countries that are sovereign in name only – Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Ukraine – with Poland, the Czech Republic, and Finland joining this Russophobic coalition in the hopes of getting an American handout,” Volodin wrote, according to a report by RT.

Another factor that has exacerbated the energy crunch was the EU’s decision to wean itself off natural gas from Russia, as the bloc considers these supplies to be unreliable. However, President Vladimir Putin has rejected accusations that Moscow could cut off gas supplies to the EU, stating that Russian energy giant Gazprom is “ready to pump as much as necessary” but that the bloc has “closed everything themselves.”
The rhetoric is still ever-increasing but hasn’t reached a boiling point yet. It’s quite clear the ruling classes want a war so they have ramped up the fomenting of division. It’s still hard to tell when it will all pop off though. Stay prepared, just in case.
