Have there been established international laws on monopolization of gas trade for members of WTO or nonmembers thereof? Is this a threat to Gazprom. If so and if there are no international monopolization laws such as in the United States OGandE nonmonopolization exemptions rules on energy sales, then outmaneuver the EU and overide EU's and Azer's sales and outsell pipelines to these alternate corporations or competitors.

In the United States it is against the law to apply monopolization laws to energy corporations.

If Azerbaijan would like shareholding rights then opportunities for that should be open for them. Never give stakeholders more than certain percentages to disallow them to gain more control than necessary over a company.

The COmmonwealth should, in my humble opinion, develop, a universal, reserve currency, not in the form of a rouble. Somewhat like Europe did with the EUro, acceptable anywhere in Europe, the Commonwealth reserve would be accepted anywhere in the Commonwealth: Russia, etc. Not using the USD to do trade, furthermore would increase the international value of the failing rouble's value.

The NABBUCO pipeline project that was supposed to allow Azerbijan to supply directly to Europe is in disarray and another outlet will be found.
