  1. i love how every sanctions they put on russia backfire really hard. look how fckd up america is economically.

  2. ALL WESTERN NATIONS SUPPORTING AND FUNDING ALL WARS IN THE WORLD. SELLING WEAPONS IN AFRICA AND THE MIDDLE EAST AND ASIA KILLING INNOCENT CIVILIANS. EVEN IN UKRAINE. HELPING COMMIT WAR CRIMES. WHILST EXPLOITATING THEIR RESOURCES AND GETTING RICH.

    500+ YEARS OF WESTERN COLONIALISM NEVER ENDED NATO COMMITS WAR CRIMES AS A COLONIAL MILITARY EXPANSION

  3. Russian bone was way to big for USA to swallow, America is chocking now, Russians are winning and US and EU sanctions backfiring on their implementers. Performance of Ruble amazing!!!

  4. Good on you Putin.! Teach them a lesson. Russia is not Africa where these European wankers can go and do what they please and control every wealth.

  5. It’s in their best interest to do so because they are focused on their SURVIVAL and so they have dire need for Russia’s gas. It’s a win win for both countries despite the current war situation in Ukraine that can potentially get worse, much worse in spreading to other countries. And why shouldn’t Russia require payments for it’s oil in their currency? Smart move I’d say. It’s SURVIVAL times for all nations and it’s people whether they are impacted, directly or indirectly, by Russia’s war in Ukraine. Anyone not having a survival mindset at this point not just from the war, but taking into consideration the effects and potential devastation of further harsh climate conditions and the havoc it’s reeking on sea creatures, livestock, food harvesting and us human beings are behind schedule in their survival preparedness. Factor in also current fuel cost, inflation and food shortages in certain countries around the globe.

  6. What right does an Indian have to criticize German gas purchases, as India has agreed to purchase Russian fuel at bargain prices ?

  7. Trump warned the German wokes not to get in bed with Russia with energy, they laughed and sniggered at him. Can't they get the wind generators to spin faster and the sun to shine at night?

  8. Hopefully Germany woke up and will finish it's strategic friendship with Russia. Time to advance as a civilization away from fossil fuels. Hope Russian oligarchs will drawn in it.

  9. That is the right thing to do, Europe should unite and stop this madness. USA is far away and not really relevant to the world. To tame America's lust for war, drop the dollar and float a European currency. While we know the hegemony of the west, it might be wise not to encourage any other race to rise to such prominence as to continually threaten world peace.

  10. the whole global community is drowning in hypocrisy and bullshit…….and yes churchill sold scrap steel to hitler

  11. next china will invade taiwan and south east asia, then demand the world to pay in chinese currency for the goods it produces.

  12. Most people don't understand why payment in one currency or another is even important/relevant. You have not explained this at all. Objectively, if I have a critical product you need, I have all the power.and dictate the terms. That's not evil, that's just commerce.

  13. They are pretty much using the Rothchilds strategy. Fund the war on both sides only difference is the Russian ruble gains strength which is good for the Russian economy

  14. Hey there my Indian friends, I rarely get to your part of the internet. I do find this news quite refreshing although quite simplistic. Yes, everybody knows Germans bet on the wrong horse, spent billions on energy transformation to align itself with Russian gas supply.
    Nevertheless, it seemes that right now their population mandates their politicians to become independent fast, while it's not happening over night it might change European dynamics forever. We will see.
    Ah one last thing, you seem to have here quite a lot of Russian trolls here, don't let them get to you. Most Europeans think highly of Indians, we didn't really think that you buying from Russia was anything special, after all , it's only a gas station , nothing else.
    Bye.

  15. The EU has turned Europe into the 3rd World. Always assuming power, never actually having it other than over completely helpless people they can feed off.
