Decline of Putin's Russia
 
15:44
Support CaspianReport through Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/CaspianReport BAKU - For many, Vladimir Putin is a strong decisive leader. An example to be emulated. Sometimes he seems nearly untouchable. Yet, strong leaders leave behind big shoes to fill. Currently, no one in Russia is qualified to replace Putin. In fact, the President himself may no longer be up to the challenge. Russian politics is often compared to a dogfight under a carpet. An outsider only hears the growling and when only one dog comes from beneath it’s obvious who won. At the moment, that’s exactly what’s happening in Russia. There is no mention of this in the mainstream media, but for the past few years, the elites have been in a rigorous power play. With the low energy prices and Western sanctions, resources are shrinking. The oligarchs and regional officials are fighting for scraps of power. Putin may be a brilliant politician but the Russia he has created is the new Sick Man of Europe.

HELLO GUYS HOW R U ALL , IN THIS VIDEO IM TALK ABOUT RUSSIA . Russia (Russian: Росси́я, tr. Rossiya, IPA: [rɐˈsʲijə]), officially the Russian Federation[12] (Russian: Росси́йская Федера́ция, tr. Rossiyskaya Federatsiya, IPA: [rɐˈsʲijskəjə fʲɪdʲɪˈratsɨjə]), is a country in Eurasia.[13] At 17,125,200 square kilometres (6,612,100 sq mi),[14] Russia is the largest country in the world by area, covering more than one-eighth of the Earth's inhabited land area,[15][16][17] and the ninth most populous, with over 144 million people as of December 2017, excluding Crimea.[8] About 77% of the population live in the western, European part of the country. Russia's capital, Moscow is one of the largest cities in the world; other major cities include Saint Petersburg, Novosibirsk, Yekaterinburg and Nizhny Novgorod. Following the Russian Revolution, the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic became the largest and leading constituent of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, the world's first constitutionally socialist state.[23] The Soviet Union played a decisive role in the Allied victory in World War II,[24][25] and emerged as a recognized superpower and rival to the United States during the Cold War. The Soviet era saw some of the most significant technological achievements of the 20th century, including the world's first human-made satellite and the launching of the first humans in space. By the end of 1990, the Soviet Union had the world's second largest economy, largest standing military in the world and the largest stockpile of weapons of mass destruction.[26][27][28] Following the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, twelve independent republics emerged from the USSR: Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and the Baltic states regained independence: Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania; the Russian SFSR reconstituted itself as the Russian Federation and is recognized as the continuing legal personality and a successor of the Soviet Union.[29] It is governed as a federal semi-presidential republic. The Russian economy ranks as the twelfth largest by nominal GDP and sixth largest by purchasing power parity in 2015.[30] Russia's extensive mineral and energy resources are the largest such reserves in the world,[31] making it one of the leading producers of oil and natural gas globally.[32][33] The country is one of the five recognized nuclear weapons states and possesses the largest stockpile of weapons of mass destruction.[34] Russia is a great power as well as a regional power and has been characterised as a potential superpower. It is a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council and an active global partner of ASEAN,[35][36][37] as well as a member of the G20, the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO), the Council of Europe, the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), and the World Trade Organization (WTO), as well as being the leading member of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) and one of the five members of the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU), along with Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan.

Russia is a country in northern Eurasia. It is a federal semi-presidential republic. At 17,075,400 square kilometres (6,592,800 sq mi), Russia is the largest country in the world, covering more than one-eighth of the Earth's inhabited land area. Russia is also the world's ninth most populous nation with nearly 144 million people as of 2015. Extending across the entirety of northern Asia and much of Eastern Europe, Russia spans nine time zones and incorporates a wide range of environments and landforms. From northwest to southeast, Russia shares land borders with Norway, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland (both with Kaliningrad Oblast), Belarus, Ukraine, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, China, Mongolia, and North Korea. It shares maritime borders with Japan by the Sea of Okhotsk and the U.S. state of Alaska across the Bering Strait. The nation's history began with that of the East Slavs, who emerged as a recognizable group in Europe between the 3rd and 8th centuries AD. Founded and ruled by a Varangian warrior elite and their descendants, the medieval state of Rus arose in the 9th century. In 988 it adopted Orthodox Christianity from the Byzantine Empire, beginning the synthesis of Byzantine and Slavic cultures that defined Russian culture for the next millennium. Rus' ultimately disintegrated into a number of smaller states; most of the Rus' lands were overrun by the Mongol invasion and became tributaries of the nomadic Golden Horde. The Grand Duchy of Moscow gradually reunified the surrounding Russian principalities, achieved independence from the Golden Horde, and came to dominate the cultural and political legacy of Kievan Rus'. By the 18th century, the nation had greatly expanded through conquest, annexation, and exploration to become the Russian Empire, which was the third largest empire in history, stretching from Poland in Europe to Alaska in North America. Following the Russian Revolution, the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic became the largest and leading constituent of the Soviet Union, the world's first constitutionally socialist state and a recognized superpower, which played a decisive role in the Allied victory in World War II. The Soviet era saw some of the most significant technological achievements of the 20th century, including the world's first human-made satellite, and the first man in space. Following the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, the Russian SFSR reconstituted itself as the Russian Federation and is recognized as the continuing legal personality (the sole successor state) of the Union state. The Russian economy ranks as the ninth largest by nominal GDP and sixth largest by purchasing power parity in 2014. Russia's extensive mineral and energy resources, the largest reserves in the world, have made it one of the largest producers of oil and natural gas globally. The country is one of the five recognized nuclear weapons states and possesses the largest stockpile of weapons of mass destruction. Russia is a great power and a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, a member of the G20, the Council of Europe, the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation, the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, the Eurasian Economic Community, the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), and the World Trade Organization (WTO), as well as being the leading member of the Commonwealth of Independent States.

► Ice Race - Border Conflicts about OIL (FULL DOCUMENTARY)
 
49:00
The Arctic is an area with massive reserves that are extremely important for billions of people – but with unclear borderlines. History has shown us that this is an extremely dangerous situation. “Border Conflict” explains that the borders in the Arctic are disputed and have not been finally determined despite the fact that they have been defined in accordance with international criteria. Zoia Vylka Ravna is a member of the indigenous Nenets people, but she has lived away from the Russian tundra for a long time. She is now returning to her homeland in the far north of Russia where she becomes witness to the fact that her people’s traditional grazing grounds have been invaded by a new industry. Like the members of many other indigenous groups around the Polar basin she feels as though she has been robbed and forgotten. Will the countries in the north comply with international regulations while a desperate hunt for energy resource is taking place? Will it be possible to share this area without any military conflicts arising – and will the exploitation of natural resources be able to occur peacefully? In the final episode of the series “Ice Race” we stand at an important and dangerous crossroads in our search for more oil and gas. Because even though we are starting to use new sources of energy, the world will be dependent on petroleum activities for many decades to come. Despite numerous expeditions, our knowledge about the seas around the North Pole is still almost non-existent. The sovereigny of the countries around the polar basin only extends for 200 nautical miles. The remaining polar areas are administered by the UN. The race to find oil and gas in the Arctic Ocean has meant that it is therefore even more important for the five Arctic countries, i.e. USA, Russia, Canada, Norway and Denmark, to secure more of the polar basin. All these countries are therefore fighting intensely over what are sometimes overlapping border claims. These claims extend all the way to the outer limits of the continental shelf, i.e. the shallow waters off these countries’ coasts. If the new race culminates in predatory activities and major conflict, the indigenous populations could become the first and greatest loosers!

European Commission VP says Europe needs new energy resources
 
00:45
The European Commission’s vice president says Europe needs to look for new energy sources after Russia’s abrupt decision to cancel the multi-billion-dollar South Stream gas pipeline project. Kristalina Georgieva said the Russian decision shows the necessity of diverse energy sources for Europe. But she also added that Brussels will continue internal talks to resolve the problems which Moscow says led to the collapse of the project. During his visit to Turkey on Monday, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that the project is shelved. South Stream was supposed to supply gas to southern Europe. The project was seen as a rival to Nabucco pipeline project. Nabucco was meant to reduce European dependence on Russian energy resources.

Wide of Putin and Nazarbayev at press conference 20. Cutaway media 21. People leaving at end of press conference STORYLINE: Russia, Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan signed an agreement on Thursday to build a natural gas pipeline along the Caspian Sea coast that would strengthen Moscow's monopoly on energy exports from the resource-rich region. But the plan also delivers a strong blow to Western hopes of securing alternate energy export routes. The pipeline provoked concern among energy analysts in Western Europe, which assiduously courted Turkmenistan to ship some of its vast natural gas reserves under the Caspian Sea, bypassing Russia. Turkmenistan, which has the second-largest gas reserves in the former Soviet Union, sends all its gas exports via Russia and the new agreement is likely to increase Russia's economic and political muscle in the country. The deal, which follows a preliminary agreement reached in May, ended months of tense arguments over the price of gas supplies. ""The creation of a new energy artery will enable long-term large-scale delivery of gas to our partners, and will become a substantial new contribution to the strengthening of energy security for Europe," Russia's President Vladimir Putin said. The agreement was signed after Putin's talks in the Kremlin with President Nursultan Nazarbayev of Kazakhstan and their conference call with Turkmen President Gurbanguli Berdymukhamedov. Following months of disputes over the gas price, Russia's state-controlled monopoly OAO Gazprom gave in to Turkmen price demands last month and agreed to pay 130 dollars per 1,000 cubic metres of natural gas in the first half of 2008 and 150 dollars in the second half. The new pipeline deal will be disappointing for the United States and the European Union, which have been lobbying for a rival pipeline to be built under the Caspian Sea, bypassing Russia. Adding to the West's grievances, Nazarbayev also said after the talks that Kazakhstan would increase oil exports to Russia. However, prospects for pipelines under the Caspian have been clouded by high costs, environmental concerns and disputes over ownership of the sea resources.

At the center of Russia’s turn to Asia is energy: Moscow sees new markets in Asia as an alternative to stagnant, politically risky Europe, while Asian investment is crucial for Russia’s ability to tap new source of oil and gas. Despite the signing of a $400 billion gas deal with China in May, Russia’s ability to make good on its Asian energy ambitions remains uncertain. What are the prospects for Russia’s energy industry in Asia? What impact will Russian energy have on regional economics and geopolitics? Is Russia’s eastward turn a threat to U.S. and European interests?

EU energy commissioner and Russian energy minister hold presser
 
03:33
Russia is ready to restart natural gas supplies to Ukraine if Kiev pays off its debt, said Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak on Friday. Novak, who was speaking in Moscow at a joint news conference with EU Energy Commissioner Guenther Oettinger, said he hoped that Brussels would help Ukraine fulfil its obligations. "We expect that both the European Commission and the Ukrainian government will find resources and send finances for payment of the debt for consumed gas," Novak told the news conference. Oettinger said he expected a schedule of Ukraine's gas repayment to Russia to be established "in the coming weeks" and that Ukraine should comply with it. "Bills should be paid", he stressed. The EU Energy Commissioner also expressed concern about recent reports that Russian troops had allegedly been deployed in eastern Ukraine. "I think that the alleged invasion of Russian soldiers, troops and tanks doesn't breathe life into the spirit of Minsk (talks between Russia, Ukraine and EU on Ukraine crisis), but ruins it," Oettinger said. This week Minsk hosted trilateral talks between Russia, Ukraine and the EU, during which Russian President Vladimir Putin and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko held their first face-face meeting.

Breaking News, 30th of September, 2018

During the session of the UN General Assembly - the Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov announced the start of deliveries of S-300 air defense missile systems to Syria. According to him, the first S-300s have already arrived in Syria shortly after President Vladimir Putin announced it. Such measures are being taken in order to ensure 100% safety of the Russian contingent. In addition, Sergei Lavrov noted that the Russian Defense Ministry provided the foreign partners with precise details of what happened with the IL-20 aircraft, since it was the reason of the deliveries of S-300s to Syria. The US Secretary of the Internal affairs, Ryan Zinke, announced the possibility of a naval blockade of Russia aimed to stop Moscow's control over the supplies of energy resources of the Middle East. "The United States can guarantee the openness of sea routes thanks to the Navy. If necessary, the Navy can also block the sea routes so that Russian energy supplies do not enter the market" - Ryan Zinke said during his speech in Pittsburgh. One might assume that he is sure that Russian activity in the Middle East is connected with the desire of Kremlin to supply the energy resources in the region, as it is now happening in Europe. According to Ryan Zinke - supply of oil and gas is, supposedly, the only source of income for the Russian economy. Ryan Zinke also noted the similarity of the Iranian and Russian situations. He explained that there is a military option for this issue, which he'd prefer to not use, and also an economic one - to exert pressure, and force the competitor's energy resources out from the market. "We are able to do so because the US are the largest producer of oil and gas" - US Secretary of the Internal affairs concluded Today the Republic of Macedonia began a nationwide referendum on the matter of renaming of the country, according to the representatives of the State Election Commission. The advisory referendum will end at 8 pm Moscow time. For the success of it - the turnout of more than 50% of voters is necessary. At the referendum itself - the population will have to answer the question of whether they agree to accept the agreement between Macedonia and Greece, and whether they support Macedonian accession to the European Union and NATO. For more than 25 years the Greek authorities demanded their northern neighbors to change the name of their country since Greece has the same historical and administrative area. On 17th June, 2018, this dispute was concluded by signing an international treaty, according to which the Republic of Macedonia agreed to rename itself. The main option for the new name at the moment is "Northern Macedonia". The adoption of the treaty with Greece opens the door to the EU and NATO. Previously, Athens blocked any talks on pan-European integration with Macedonia until this country changes its name. Hungarian Foreign Minister, Peter Siyarto, was put into the database of the Ukrainian website "Peacemaker". The reasons for it are the following: "an attempt on the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine", "inciting and supporting separatist sentiments" and "participation in the organization of provocations". During Wednesday Peter Siyarto told to the Ukrainian Foreign Minister, Pavel Klimkin, that Petro Poroshenko supports the hatred towards Hungarians. In turn, Pavel Klimkin spoke about the lack of achievements on all key issues with Hungary. Before that, he reacted extremely negatively to the issue of Hungarian passports to Ukrainians in the border town of Berehove. Previously, Peter Siyarto was puzzled by the decision of Kiev to move Ukrainian troops in Transcarpathia. He said that the relocation of troops to the borders of a NATO country is "rather unusual." __________________________________________________ Агентство ANNA-News это волонтерский проект.

Selling Russian Natural Gas to China
 
04:28
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/bond-investing/selling-russian-natural-gas-to-china Selling Russian Natural Gas to China By www.ProfitableInvestingTips.com So, if Russia cuts off natural gas supplies to Ukraine how will Europe get its natural gas from Russia? And if the EU and USA ramp up sanctions in the wake of the Russian annexation of Crimea the USA may just start replacing Russia as the energy supplier of choice for the EU. Then where will Gazprom, Lukoil and the rest sell their natural gas? According to the news they will be selling Russian natural gas to China! In fact, a Russian Chinese energy agreement has been in the works for a decade. China is still a growing economy and Russia has lots of natural resources. However, there has been distrust and outright animosity between these two great Asian powers for a long, long time. On the face of it selling Russian natural gas to China sounds like good business. On the other hand Vladimir Putin, the Russian president who just annexed part of a neighboring country, may have found himself in a jam. Without the EU as a willing buyer of Russian energy products, who is going to compete for Russian natural gas and keep the price up? Selling Russian natural gas to China may better be seen as part of how investing in Russia will suffer from the Crimea fallout. Ukraine, Crimea, Russia and Investment Capital The largest source of foreign direct investment in Russia has been the EU, especially Germany. Russia does not appear to be ready to back off its campaign to destabilize Ukraine and take its Eastern regions into the Russian Federation. As such we can expect to see a slow but sure ramping up of economic sanctions by the EU and USA. The ruble has already fallen to all-time lows and Gazprom is talking about issuing bonds denominated in Yuan. This actually makes sense as who would want debts denominated in Rubles when the currency is in free fall. So, does Russia want China to be its next big investor? It seems like Mr. Putin has forgotten the Sino-Soviet undeclared border war in 1969. The fact that a contract for selling Russian natural gas to China has been on the table for ten years should tell us that both sides have major issues with this agreement. But, to the extent that Russia has boxed itself in selling Russian natural gas to China may be the best way to make money. Certainly for China who would like to make the Yuan into an international currency, Gazprom selling debt denominated in Yuan instead of rubles, dollars or euros should be seen as a good deal. Where Is This Going? In our articles about Investing in Russia we wrote about the devastation of the Second World War in Russia and the valid concern of Russian governments to protect the Motherland. The more valid issue for Ukraine is that the people have been badly governed ever since the breakup of the USSR and before that Stalin murdered millions and the Germans invaded. It is clear that a lot of folks would like a better life in Ukraine. It is also clear that Russian speakers may well want closer relations with Russia or even to be part of Russia. However, the majority of the country and lots of folks in the east of Ukraine do not ever want that situation and want closer relations with the West. This situation is not going to get better without an agreement between Russia, the EU and the USA. Selling Russian natural gas to China may be a short term cash flow solution but the better solution will be for Putin, Obama, Merkel and the rest to put politics aside and find a viable fix that helps Ukraine and encourages investment in the region. http://youtu.be/aEC_IKvvXtA

Thanks for watching............ 1) Irkutsk 2) Kaliningrad 3) Moscow 4) Novgorod 5) Perm 6) Pyatigorsk 7) St. Petersburg 8) Vladivostok 9) Volgograd 10) Yekaterinburg Russia Listeni/ˈrʌʃə/ or /ˈrʊʃə/ (Russian: Россия, tr. Rossiya, IPA: [rɐˈsʲijə] ( listen)), also officially known as the Russian Federation[10] (Russian: Российская Федерация, tr. Rossiyskaya Federatsiya, IPA: [rɐˈsʲijskəjə fʲɪdʲɪˈrat͡sɨjə] ( listen)), is a country in northern Eurasia.[11] It is a federal semi-presidential republic, comprising 83 federal subjects. From northwest to southeast, Russia shares land borders with Norway, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland (both with Kaliningrad Oblast), Belarus, Ukraine, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, China, Mongolia, and North Korea. It shares maritime borders with Japan by the Sea of Okhotsk and the U.S. state of Alaska across the Bering Strait. At 17,075,400 square kilometres (6,592,800 sq mi), Russia is the largest country in the world, covering more than one-eighth of the Earth's inhabited land area. Russia is also the world's ninth most populous nation with 143 million people as of 2012.[12] Extending across the entirety of northern Asia and much of Eastern Europe, Russia spans nine time zones and incorporates a wide range of environments and landforms. The nation's history began with that of the East Slavs, who emerged as a recognizable group in Europe between the 3rd and 8th centuries AD.[13] Founded and ruled by a Varangian warrior elite and their descendants, the medieval state of Rus arose in the 9th century. In 988 it adopted Orthodox Christianity from the Byzantine Empire,[14] beginning the synthesis of Byzantine and Slavic cultures that defined Russian culture for the next millennium.[14] Rus' ultimately disintegrated into a number of smaller states; most of the Rus' lands were overrun by the Mongol invasion and became tributaries of the nomadic Golden Horde.[15] The Grand Duchy of Moscow gradually reunified the surrounding Russian principalities, achieved independence from the Golden Horde, and came to dominate the cultural and political legacy of Kievan Rus'. By the 18th century, the nation had greatly expanded through conquest, annexation, and exploration to become the Russian Empire, which was the third largest empire in history, stretching from Poland in Europe to Alaska in North America.[16][17] Following the Russian Revolution, the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic became the largest and leading constituent of the Soviet Union, the world's first constitutionally socialist state and a recognized superpower,[18] which played a decisive role in the Allied victory in World War II.[19][20] The Soviet era saw some of the most significant technological achievements of the 20th century, including the world's first spacecraft, and the first astronaut. The Russian Federation became the successor state of the Russian SFSR following the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, and is recognized as the continuing legal personality of the All-Union state.[21] The Russian economy ranks as the eighth largest by nominal GDP and fifth largest by purchasing power parity.[4] Russia's extensive mineral and energy resources, the largest reserves in the world,[22] have made it one of the largest producers of oil and natural gas globally.[23][24] The country is one of the five recognized nuclear weapons states and possesses the largest stockpile of weapons of mass destruction.[25] Russia is a great power and a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, a member of the G8, G20, the Council of Europe, the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation, the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation, the Eurasian Economic Community, the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), the World Trade Organisation (WTO), and is the leading member of the Commonwealth of Independent States.

Steve LeVine on Russia's New Energy Diplomacy In Brief
 
03:38
Russias enormous energy resources have generated a large profit as well as a bargaining chip in its relationship with Europe. Europe gets roughly 40 percent of its natural gas and over one-third of its oil from Russia. Journalist, author and longtime Russia-watcher Steve LeVine joins the Council to discuss Russias energy policies and how Europe and the West plan to respond to their reliance on Russian energy. How did the Russia-Ukraine natural gas disputes in 2005-2006 and 2009 impact European security and cohesion? How do the fluctuating energy prices affect the Russian economy and stability? Is Russia using its position as energy supplier as a way to send political messages and extract concessions from its allies and opponents?

Putin Says Arctic Belongs To Russia
 
00:44
Russian President Vladimir Putin told a gathering of Russia's ruling party members on Thursday (October 3) that the Arctic was inarguably a part of Russian territory and that Russia had plans to expand activity there. The Arctic is "...a part of the Russian Federation, which has been under our sovereignty throughout the past few centuries. And it will stay this way for the foreseeable future," Putin told United Russia party delegates. Putin said the country would reopen a Soviet-era military base there as part of a drive to make the northern coast a global shipping route and secure the region's vast energy resources. Two decades after abandoning it, Russia has sent 10 warships behind four nuclear-powered ice breakers to the base on the Novosibirsk Islands, a show of force as it resumes a permanent naval presence in the thawing region. Russia wants to tap into the region's vast mineral resources. Russian energy giant Gazprom's plans to begin oil production in the Arctic have raised the concerns of environmentalists who say an oil spill there could have catastrophic consequences for the environment.

http://www.youtube.com/user/PowerRossiya RUSSIA - At 17,075,400 square kilometres, Russia is by far the largest country in the world, covering more than a ninth of the Earth's land area. Russia is also the number one most populous nation in Europe and ninth most populous nation in the world. Russia has the world's largest reserves of mineral and energy resources,and is considered an global superpower. Russia is a federal semi presidential republic, comprising 83 federal subjects that has the ability to exert its influence on a global scale, possess economic, military, diplomatic, and cultural strength, which may cause other nations to consider the opinion of Russia before taking actions of their own. Russia was founded, populated and ruled by a noble Viking warrior class and their descendants called Rus, the first East Slavic state, Kievan Rus, arose in the 9th century and adopted Orthodox Christianity from the Byzantine Empire in 988. The Vikings Scandinavian (Varangians or Rus) forget the Norsemen roots and created their own Indo European Slavic tribes, East Slavic languages, culture and roots, the first king was Rurik, electe ruler of Novgorod in 862 and founded the Rurik Dynasty which ruled Kievan Rus and then Galicia Volhynia until the 14th and Muscovy until the 16th century. Today Rurik people became in three modern East Slavic nations Belarusians, Russians and Ukrainians. Under Peter I (Peter the Great), Russia was proclaimed an Empire in 1721 and became recognized as a world power. Ruling from 1682 to 1725, Peter defeated Sweden in the Great Northern War, forcing it to cede West Karelia and Ingria Estland, and Livland, securing Russia's access to the sea and sea trade. On the Baltic Sea Peter founded a new capital called Saint Petersburg. In 1762 entered into power the Empress of Russia Catherine II (Catherine the Great) the most powerful women in human history and conquer of West. Under her direct auspices the Russian Empire expanded into Western European lands, improved its administration, and continued to modernize Russia as the most powerful empire in the world. Napoleon made a major misstep when, following a dispute with Tsar Alexander I, he launched an invasion of the tsar's realm in 1812. The Napoleon campaign was a catastrophe. Although Napoleon's Grande Armée made its way to Moscow, the Russians' scorched earth strategy prevented the invaders from living off the country.In the bitterly cold Russian weather, thousands of French troops were ambushed and killed by Russian peasant. As Napoleon's forces retreated, the Russian peasant pursued the French troops killing and destroying everything in its path into Central and Western Europe and to the gates of Paris . In 1914 Russia entered World War I in response to Austria's declaration of war on Russia's ally Serbia, and fought across multiple fronts. The Russian army achieved such successes as the Brusilov Offensive in 1916, destroying the military of Austria Hungary completely. On 30 December 1922. became The Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic and The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) the largest socialist power in history. On 22 June 1941, Nazi Germany broke the non aggression treaty and invaded the Soviet Union with the largest and most powerful invasion force in human history,opening the largest theater of the Second World War. Subsequently the Germans were dealt major defeats in history first at the Battle of Stalingrad in the winter of 19421943, and then in the Battle of Kursk in the summer of 1943. Another German failure was the battle of Leningrad. Under Stalin's administration and the leadership of such prominent commanders as Georgy Zhukov and Konstantin Rokossovsky, Soviet forces conquered Berlin and part of Germany and called German Democratic Republic (GDR) also know as East Germany. In 4 October 1957 Russia conquered the space with Sputnik 1, was the first Earth orbiting artificial satellite and was the first in a series of satellites collectively known as the Sputnik program. Next the first man in space Yuri Alekseyevich Gagarin on 12 April 1961 and the first woman Valentina Vladimirovna Tereshkova on 16 June 1963. In 1991 became the Russian Federation at beginning the Russian Federation and Boris Yeltsin not control the power dimension of Russia and caused structural problems especially with the population. On 31 December 1999 President Yeltsin resigned, handing the post to the recently appointed Prime Minister, Vladimir Putin, who then won the 2000 presidential election. Putin's leadership return the power,order, stability, and progress to Russia has won him widespread popularity in Russia. Today The Russian Federation is a global superpower, is increasingly being seen as a world leader in its own right, Dmitry Medvedev was elected President, whilst Putin became Prime Minister.

Austria: Russia's Gazprom, Austria's OMV sign gas supplies agreement until 2040
 
05:06
Russian corporation Gazprom Export and Austria energy company OMV Gas Marketing & Trading GmbH signed an agreement on gas supplies until 2040 on Tuesday, following talks between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurtz in Vienna. SOT, Sebastian Kurz, Austrian Chancellor (German): "At the same time we hope that through an intensive dialogue, a progress will be reached in the relations between the European Union and Russia. Especially we hope that there will be progress in eastern Ukraine, so that sanctions can be removed step by step in accordance with the Minsk agreement. This is a scenario that we wish for our continent. And we are firmly convinced that only by cooperating with each other and not by opposing each other will we succeed on our continent. We believe that a win-win situation is better for both sides than a lose-lose situation." SOT, Vladimir Putin, Russian President (Russian): "[Russia and Austria] confirmed the partnership, the mutually beneficial nature of a Russian-Austrian cooperation. Evidence of this is the solid growth in trade turnover between our countries, last year it increased by 40.5 percent and the growth continues. In the first quarter of this year, trade turnover doubled. Our visit is timed to the 50th anniversary of the signing of the first contract for the supply of natural gas from the Soviet Union to Austria. During these 50 years our country has reliably, stably supplied energy resources to Austrian consumers, while the transit of Russian energy carriers to the markets of other European countries is carried out through the territory of Austria. Thus, it is no exaggeration to say that by joint efforts, Russia and Austria are making a significant contribution to ensuring the energy security of the entire European continent. We are working together to expand cooperation in the energy sphere. Today, our leading energy companies - OMV, Gazprom - have signed an agreement on gas supplies for the period up to 2040. The Nord Stream-2 project is being continued." SOT, Vladimir Putin, Russian President (Russian): "The Declaration on Partnership for Modernisation, adopted in 2011, is being implemented. Within its framework, 28 joint initiatives amounting to almost three billion euros are being carried out. I will especially highlight such a major infrastructure project as the creation of a wide-gauge railway from Kosice in Slovakia to Vienna." SOT, Vladimir Putin, Russian President (Russian): "We talked about the situation in Ukraine. I informed the Federal Chancellor about how Russia sees further possibilities for settling the situation in the Donbass. It is characteristic [obvious] that both Russia and Austria are in favour of full and rigorous compliance by all parties to the conflict with Minsk agreements. We discussed the problems of the Syrian crisis. We note the readiness of Austria to join humanitarian actions in support of the population of Syria. I have already spoken many times, and I would like to take this opportunity to say once again - if Europe wants the flow of migrants, including from the region of Syria, from neighbouring countries, to decrease, it is necessary to help people to return to their homes, we need to help them to build a life in their own country." *MULTIPLE SHOTS AT SOURCE* Subscribe to our channel! rupt.ly/subscribe Video ID: 20180605 036 Video on Demand: http://www.ruptly.tv Contact: [email protected] Twitter: http://twitter.com/Ruptly Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/Ruptly

Russia: Putin touts expansion of trade with Greece
 
01:27
Russian President Vladimir Putin and Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras held a joint press conference in Moscow, Wednesday, after both leaders signed a cooperation agreement for 2015-2016. SOT, Vladimir Putin, Russian President (in Russian): "Last year our bilateral turnover amounted to $4.2 billion, which makes a reduction of 40 percent. This is due to anti-Russian sanctions and Russia's response measures as well as the decline of prices of energy resources." SOT, Vladimir Putin, Russian President (in Russian): "However we agreed on undertaking efforts in order to help to expand trade. We hope our Russian-Greek intergovernmental commission will contribute to that as well as the implementation of our cooperation agreement for 2015-2016 that we have signed today." SOT, Vladimir Putin, Russian President (in Russian): "We also talked about the implementation of the major infrastructure [project] which we call Turkish Stream, the key project in transporting Russian gas through Turkey to the Balkans and probably to Italy and then central Europe. The new route will satisfy European needs for energy and enable Greece to become one of the key energy distribution centres on the European continent." ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ To use this footage please contact the Ruptly Client Desk: [email protected] Video ID: 20150408-030 ---------------------------------- Twitter: http://twitter.com/Ruptly VK: https://vk.com/ruptlytv Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/Ruptly LiveLeak: http://www.liveleak.com/c/Ruptly Vine: https://vine.co/Ruptly Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/Ruptly Google Plus: http://google.com/+RuptlyTV YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/user/RuptlyTV DailyMotion: http://www.dailymotion.com/ruptly Video on Demand: http://www.ruptly.tv

Russian energy giant Gazprom faces challenges as output slumps
 
04:45
Facing a cold shoulder from Europe and increased competition at home, Russia's Gazprom has struggled to assert dominance on the global energy market, prompting speculation the energy giant could have no choice but to splinter. With the Russian economy slipping into recession on the back of lower oil prices and Western sanctions over Ukraine, the economy ministry predicted Gazprom would produce 414 billion cubic metres of gas this year, an all-time low for the public company sitting atop some of the world's largest natural gas reserves. Gazprom's market capitalisation has plummeted in recent years. Prior to the 2008 financial crisis, the company was worth more than $300 billion. Its value now hovers around $50 billion, trailing far behind the world's other major energy companies. "Gazprom is confronted with the greatest challenge in its history," Chris Weafer, a partner at the Macro Advisory consultancy firm, told AFP. "What remains to be seen is whether Gazprom becomes an appendage of the foreign ministry or evolves into a global energy company." The decline in Gazprom's value and gas production coincides with mounting tensions with the European Union, which has accused it of catering to Moscow's geopolitical interests instead of operating according to business principles. The gas giant struck a $400 billion natural-gas deal with China last year, an agreement that was heralded as the symbol of Russia's pivot to Asia. Moscow and Beijing have since agreed on Russia supplying natural gas to western China. But Western sanctions imposed on Moscow over the Ukraine crisis have undermined Gazprom's attempts to turn away from Europe, its traditional market. Washington's ban on technology transfers to Russia for certain energy projects, including Gazprom's Yuzhnoye Kirinskoye field in the far eastern Okhotsk Sea, is stifling Moscow's ambitions on the Asian market. Gazprom was set to use the field to develop its liquefied natural gas (LNG) production capacity and, according to some reports, exchange assets with Anglo-Dutch company Shell. Without US technology, experts fear that Russia will not be able to exploit the field's resources. "This is bad news for Russia because the production of LNG is a strategic objective in the region," said Valery Nesterov, an analyst at Sberbank Investment CIB. The Ukraine conflict, which has propelled Russia's relations with the West to their post-Soviet nadir, has meanwhile exacerbated Europe's desire to dissociate from Gazprom. The company, however, has reiterated that Russian energy resources remain the most accessible to fulfil Europe's growing demand for gas. Gazprom's exports to Europe, which are expected to rise this year, still provide the company with hefty revenues in spite of lower energy prices. After the EU blocked Russia's South Stream gas pipeline project -- which would have brought Russian gas to western Europe via the Black Sea -- Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the country would work on a new pipeline, the TurkStream, which would run through Turkey. Gazprom is eager to complete the TurkStream pipeline to bypass Ukraine in its gas shipments, but its construction, which was scheduled to start in June, has been delayed. Experts said it is unlikely that Ankara will make any decisions on the project until after upcoming general elections. According to Mikhail Korchemkin, the director of the East European Gas Analysis firm, there are "next to zero" chances that the pipeline will be completed. Critics have said Gazprom has been slow to react to the ever-changing gas market, clinging to lengthy contracts pegged to fluctuating oil prices. Analysts have claimed that Gazprom could benefit from dividing its mammoth structure into smaller entities that would be more efficient and transparent. Russian media has reported that Igor Sechin, the influential head of Russian oil giant Rosneft, has asked the government to open up gas exports to competition and to split Gazprom in two, separating energy production and transportation. "I'm not sure Gazprom survives this difficult period," said analyst Korchemkin. "It would be easier for its development if it split into pieces within a couple of years."

Marin Katusa: The Putinization of Resources - 4/23/14
 
17:37
This week, we speak with Marin Katusa, Chief Energy Strategist at Casey Research and an expert on many things including energy, resources, international real estate, and the topic of today's interview -- RUSSIA... Marin discusses the life experiences and forces that shaped Vladimir Putin into the leader he is today. Putin's grandfather was the personal aid and cook, not just for Lenin, but also Stalin. These stories were passed on to Putin, and upon receiving his law degree, Vladimir Putin became the head of the KGB in Eastern Germany. When the USSR fell apart, he came back to St. Petersburg. Putin then wrote his PhD thesis on the importance of consolidating the natural resource sector within Russia to be able to build and develop a platform for the other economies and technologies to grow within Russia. Fast forward 15 years, and Russia is now the largest producer of natural gas in the world, they are the largest producer of oil in the world, they are the largest producer of uranium resources in the world, they have the highest upgrading facilities for uranium in the world, they have about half of all the uranium resources in the world within their sphere of influence. The Putinization of natural resources has occurred. Marin discusses the uranium sector in particular, and how Russia is intelligently vertically integrating themselves into the entire supply chain in emerging countries. Russia produces more uranium on American soil today than all American firms combined. So rather than producing just the fuel, Putin is moving into countries like Saudia Arabia, Belaruse, and Sri Lanka, and providing a life supply of the uranium fuel, he is also lending the money to build the facilities and providing Russian expertise to construct the power plants. Due to American regulation, firms like General Electric can not do the same thing. Marin next touches on the overall uranium sector. He points out that the big key is Japan restarting its nuclear reactors, which should occur over the next 12-18 months. The next catalyst is in the United States, where Barack Obama has changed the rules to the Department of Energy. Historically the DOE has never sold more than 10% of the uranium it produces, compared to what it consumes. This is the first year that Obama has sold north of 15% into the spot market. The third thing that occurred in 2014, is that a nuclear reactor in California sold 10 million pounds of uranium into the spot market. These three points have helped to suppress the uranium price, with over 75% of all uranium transactions occurring in the spot market. Marin expects 2014 to 2015 to be the time when uranium will really start picking up. Marin believes that Russia is setting it up for the long term. Russia is buying more gold, signing contracts with new markets, working deals with China. Overall, Russia is positioning itself to become the fuel of future engines of the economies. Just like America did in the 60s and 70s, Russia will use that wealth to innovate. With a background in mathematics, Marin Katusa left teaching post-secondary mathematics to pursue portfolio management within the resource sector. He is regularly interviewed on national and local television channels in North America such as the Business News Network (BNN) and many other radio and newspaper outlets for his opinions and insights regarding the resource sector. Katusa is the chief investment strategist for the energy division of Casey Research. He is the editor of the Casey Energy Report, Casey Energy Confidential and Casey Energy Dividends newsletters. A regular part of his due diligence process for Casey Research includes property tours, which has resulted in him visiting hundreds of mining and energy producing and exploration projects all around the world.

Russia, China sign $25 billion energy deal
 
01:35
02-18-2009 Russia, China sign $25 billion energy deal Beijing signed a deal with Moscow Tuesday to lend $25 billion to two Russian oil firms, which in turn will sell 15 million tons of crude oil a year to China for the next 20 years. The agreement will ensure the long-awaited extension of Russia's Siberia-Pacific coast pipeline to China, too. The pipeline project, agreed on late last year, will see the extension of the pipeline from the Siberian city of Skovorodino, 70 km north of the Sino-Russian border, to China. China will lend $15 billion to Russia's state-owned oil firm Rosneft and $10 billion to pipeline monopoly Transneft. China Development Bank (CDB) provided the credit for the deal, according to the Associated Press (AP). The Russian firms, on the other hand, will ensure China gets 300,000 barrels of crude a day for 20 years. China and Russia signed seven agreements on energy cooperation package programs, Xinhua said, quoting a Foreign Ministry official. The $25-billion deal is seen as a boost to Russian energy firms because the global financial crisis and a drastic drop in the crude prices have left them struggling to raise capital, AP said. The agreement was signed by Vice-Premier Wang Qishan and Russian Deputy Prime Minister Igor Sechin in Beijing at the third round of energy talks between the two countries. "We hope the two sides will give full play to the bilateral energy negotiation mechanism to promote bilateral energy cooperation," Wang told Sechin. Sechin replied that the two countries should intensify cooperation in fields such as energy and finance, and make joint efforts to guarantee that the agreed projects are implemented on time. A memorandum of cooperation in the energy sector signed in Moscow in October said Transneft and Rosneft could get loans from China in exchange for long-term oil sales to Beijing. But the talks were suspended on November 12 because of divergence of views on lending rates and loan guarantees, industry insiders said. Russia, the largest oil exporter after Saudi Arabia, is seeking to shift its exports focus from the West, and eyeing China as the main new market. Last year, trade between Russia and China increased 18 percent to $56.8 billion. And Premier Wen placed cooperation in resources development on top of his five proposals on economic cooperation when he visited Russia last year. The two countries have agreed to work jointly in oil production and processing, natural gas production and in chemical industries. They have agreed to expand cooperation in nuclear energy, too, including the construction of nuclear power plant in Tianwan, Jiangsu province, uranium mining, and post-processing of spent fuel.

Turkey: Erdogan touts Turkish-Russian gas pipeline at WEC
 
03:11
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan stressed the importance of Turkey as a transit country for natural gas supplies to Europe, during an address at the World Energy Congress 2016 in Istanbul on Monday. "For European energy security, I think this is a huge contribution," he said of Turkey's regional energy role. He added that he expected Turkey and Russia to construct a fourth energy corridor to Europe under the Turkish Stream pipeline scheme. SOT, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Turkish President (Turkish): "Of course we are not a supplier, as a country we do not supply natural gas - we consume natural gas and we transport natural gas. We are a transit country and these are two things that are special about Turkey. And we need to bolster this with technology and make sure that we bring supply and these assets together. And for the European energy security, I think this is a huge contribution. Within this perspective, I think that with the Russian Federation, after Algeria and Norway, we are going to be building a fourth energy corridor to Europe. With the launch of the TANAP [Trans Anatolian Pipeline] project, I think that a new alternative will emerge for the supply of natural gas to Europe; and Turkey agrees that the interconnection of natural gas was the first step in this project. I think this is hugely significant for Europe as well. And another area that we feel strongly about is nuclear energy. In 2010, we signed a deal with the Russian Federation for the Akkuyu nuclear power plant. We signed the deal between our two governments to initiate this process and, with Japan, we have signed a deal to build the Sinop nuclear power plant project on the shores of the Black Sea. Now, we are looking for a third nuclear power plant to be built in Turkey." SOT, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Turkish President (Turkish): "As terrorism is a global ill, that is why other countries should support Turkey in this fight. Just as we are fighting these terrorist organisations in Turkey [outlawed Kurdish organisations], we should also focus on Syria and Iraq, and I believe we have the same right to carry out a campaign against these terrorist organisations. Our presence in Syria and Iraq is not discretionary, it is necessary for us and for the security of energy resources, we need to rid these regions of terrorists as well. We are fighting not only for our national security, but for the energy security of the world as well!"

Russia and China failed to agree on gas deal - RT 110617.
 
05:19
Moscow and Beijing failed to agree on a major energy deal. But an assistant professor of economics at City University in Hong Kong believes the two economies will only benefit from the mutual co-operation. ­"These economies are highly complementary to each other," Dr. Baozhi Qu.told RT. "For instance, China has a big market, China has a great energy demand, and also China is growing fast. On the other hand, Russia has a big land size very rich in energy and mineral resources. Russia needs China as a big market, as a consumer. So, fundamentally speaking, both countries can be complementary to each other and can play a positive role in the global recovery." "Russia used to depend on the European market as the buyers of its oil and gas," Qu elaborated. "But we all know that the European market doesn't look very bright, at least for now. Russia needs to diversify in terms of getting its oil and gas and other energy resources sold. If Russia can have a more balanced model between Europe and East Asia, which is the most rapidly-developing region in the world, this would be beneficial for Russia in the long run. And this will be good for China too. China also wants to diversify its supply of energy sources. For instance, it used to depend heavily on the Middle East. But we all know about the recent disturbances there. So China is hungry for the new energy source. Certainly, if this deal is reached and China can buy a large amount of gas from Russia, it can get a stable and long-term reliable energy resources, so that is certainly beneficial for China." Commenting the failure of the two countries to reach a gas deal, Dr. Baozhi Qu believes that sooner or later the contract will be signed. "Gas talks are a big deal and a lot of money is involved, so, you can imagine the negotiations will be tough. There are a lot of terms which need to be determined and negotiated. It takes time," he said.
