Impeachment Testimony Describes Putin’s Propaganda War On American Fracking
Why is Russia so interested in American natural gas production? In her testimony, Hill explained that Putin “saw American fracking as a great threat to Russian interests” and that a fracking ban would “play into strengthening Putin’s hands.” That’s because natural gas supplies are central to European economic markets. Not only do more abundant gas supplies make the U.S. stronger, but they make us more capable of supplanting Russia as a key supplier of European gas. Russia desires neither of those outcomes, mainly since it has used its largest gas company, Gazprom, as a weapon of political influence in Europe for years to significant effect.
CO2isLife Readers, if you or anyone you know can interpret and translate Russian to English, we would greatly appreciate is someone would post in the comments section the statements made by Putin in the above video related to US Fracking being Russia’s Greatest Threat. Any effort would be greatly appreciated.
