Fracked Up - U.S. Plans for Control of Ukraine's Natural Gas



Recall that V-P Joe Biden's son Hunter signed on to the board of directors of Ukraine’s largest oil company, Burisma Holdings, at a time that the US is urging Ukraine to develop energy independence from Russia.  (You could call it the spoils of war. And you could call it corruption at the highest levels.)

“Burisma’s track record of innovations and industry leadership in the field of natural gas means that it can be a strong driver of a strong economy in Ukraine,” Hunter Biden said in a statement.

So one reason for the US war in Ukraine is to force the drilling for fracked natural gas in the eastern part of the county.  The local population opposes doing so as they know that it will ruin the environment.  Thus they must be driven off their land by Kiev's Army which is backed by the US-NATO war machine.

This video shows how a fracking operations camp had been set up but the self-defense forces drove them out of the area.

The US wants to install western energy companies in Ukraine and Washington wants to force regime change in Moscow so they can get their hands on Russia's natural gas - which happens to be the largest supply on the planet.
