But in fact the history of these scandals are much older than you think - they began in 1992. Moreover, gas in a protracted war, Vladimir Putin and Gazprom just can't win and they know it.With Ukraine began in the 30-ies of the last century, all of the Soviet gas industry, Ukraine, and begins construction of gas infrastructure. Even after gas production has largely moved to Western Siberia, Ukraine remained the center of the pipe network of the Soviet Union. And when he collapsed on the borders of Union republics, was that physical assets of the system are arranged so that it simply can't work.Gazprom, the Russian gas monopoly, many vital facilities are located in Ukraine that is not under his direct control: first of all, it is, of course, the pipelines; but equally important is the fact that Ukraine controls most gas storage, working with the Russian export system. On the other hand, Ukraine, where the main branch of the economy - heavy industry, already exhausted your gas field, and now depends on a supply of Siberian gas.Thus, we get the situation of mutual dependence. Russian Ukrainian infrastructure required to continue to comply with the terms of the European export contracts, and Ukraine needs Russian gas. In case of conflict in Russia there is a temptation to shut off the gas, Ukraine - stop the operation of the infrastructure; and both countries after the collapse of the Soviet Union has repeatedly this temptation was resisted.Russian Ukrainian infrastructure required to continue to comply with the terms of the European export contracts, and Ukraine needs Russian gas.Ukraine accustomed to that amount of gas which it relied in the Soviet system of planning, thought and after independence will get the same amount. And when Russia first tried to get money for their deliveries - it was in the early 90-ies, - she did not. As soon as she cut off gas to Ukraine, so she paid the bill, Ukraine just got into the volumes that were exported; and when the noise picked up by European buyers, Russia retreated and regained full supply volume, without having achieved from Ukraine money. This situation lasted year after year, and the supply of gas is not interrupted.Russia cannot cut off gas to Ukraine for a long time because he suffers from that export. From a practical point of view, to give about 20 percent of transit supplies to Ukraine as payment for the transit of such conditions acceptable to both parties, so why seemingly fuss again every year?Gazprom has long been understood that official deliveries of Ukraine is not going to pay. And was made following "the decision to privatize part of the circuit. Customers have offered to pay for lower rates, but not to the Ukrainian authorities and Gazprom, as a third party, not formally associated neither with others.This plan, which is implemented every year by 30 billion cubic meters of gas, earned, required cooperation between the leadership of Gazprom and the Russian and Ukrainian politicians. Those who participate in it, first off her cream in his pocket, and, secondly, cut off from the consumer both Kiev and Gazprom. From this point of view political strife in Ukraine for the most part represent the struggle over who will represent in this scheme, Ukraine. Ponder: the current Prime Minister of Ukraine Yulia Tymoshenko in the 90 years amassed a small fortune on gas trade, and the Pro-Russian opposition leader Viktor Yanukovych is heavy industry in Eastern Ukraine, that is the main buyers of fuel. In Russia - as in the Kremlin and Gazprom - the same thing happens: compiled by the coalition and is conducted behind the scenes struggle.And while the world is watching Russia and Ukraine - that are predictable - they use all available means, the real struggle for the income from this scheme is more intense, but much quieter, and leads her group in Moscow and Kiev oligarchs.And while the world is watching Russia and Ukraine - that are predictable - they use all available means, the real struggle for the income from this scheme is more intense, but much quieter, and leads her group in Moscow and Kiev oligarchs. Actually, because it is, by and large, and arranged the whole circus. All the fears about what Russia or Gazprom can use against Europe gas weapons, completely unfounded. Both the Kremlin and Gazprom is a state, and as agents of the state they are well aware that a huge proportion of government revenue is totally dependent on exports to Europe; they realize that to Finance investments necessary for the operation of the gas industry, needs a stable, reliable and long-term relationships.Much more alarmingly, the government of Russia and Ukraine suffer the situation - if not condone it, - in which the highest echelons of the state and public infrastructure are used as weapons in disputes between unknown oligarchs. We immediately see how superficially in society each of these countries has penetrated the principles of legality and accountability of government.
