Well, those at Shell should be well aware of Ukrainkas ability to siphon gas illegally first & then sign any cooperation, I feel.

Don't under estimate the Royal Dutch this company is embedded from government to Royals. In Africa shell was screwed over, they employed mercenary death squads and thrived after killing the problem with maximum violence and no clean up. They are a global force, very wealthy and fearless.

Best way to escape Russia's grasp, foreign investment from the west.

Ukraine stands to be an exporter of fuel supplies to Europe with this economical development. I suppose its a direct threat to Moscow as the already present pipelines could easily be rerouted to send Ukrainian fuel to europe. Poor Putin, who will he assassinate next? Before the walls close in.

Everything I read and scene shows a Ukraine that was the brains of the Soviet Union, even the space project birthed there and the Ruskies where so conscious of transporting the project out of Ukraine as to not look trumped by Ukrainian minds. I'm not even Ukrainian and I can tell there more advanced and educated than the vodka drunk Russians. Plus they've been around a lot longer than Russians and at least Ukrainians can follow their family blood line for pure generations, most Russians don't know who their fathers are lol, the Vikings like to rape and pillage. At least Cossacks had thriving hunger for victory and life. Without them Europe would have had Vienna fall and Muslims invade all over. Although a smaller country at least Ukraine has persons of high achievement way beyond any simply list of Russias. Kiev existed before Moscow and learn some respect for your elders...

The Poles thought so too but look where their natural gas imports are now. Nonexistent.

They seem to be heading in the right track, the old soviet infrastructure takes time to phase out its ironic how Russia controlled it all. Perhaps if Putin doesn't murder the president and friends this go around they'll find fuel self sufficiency.

What a bunch of crap.

Did you even read the article on shale gas in Poland??

"Hampered by difficult geology, a paltry service sector, a lack of adequate infrastructure, as well as an uncertain regulatory and tax environment, there have been few exploratory wells drilled."

Now I can understand how you'd want to blame the lack of infrastructure on the Soviets, but my God, they've had over 20 years and the west has bent over backwards to help them. As for the rest of it, that is entirely on them.

Russia kills presidents?

The Polish Committee for Investigation of National Aviation Accidents published its own report on 29 July 2011. The Polish report came to roughly the same conclusion as the Russian one, finding the main cause of accident was descent below the allowed altitude at an excessive rate in bad weather conditions, in conjunction with too late execution of a go-around. The Polish report also placed harsh criticism on the organization of the special aviation regiment and its leaders. Differing from its Russian counterpart, the Polish report found deficiencies in the performance of Air Traffic Controllers at Smolensk contributed to the accident by providing inaccurate data and making warning calls too late, and also found that the airport's lighting and approach area were not fully up to requirements.

Despite these differences, the aftermath and investigation of the accident had an overall warming effect on relations between the two countries.

Poland felt the investigation was conducted in an open and overall fair manner in stark contrast to Russian and Soviet investigations of the past.

I did they have a ten year supply, plus deals with Libya so isn't that good for them or should they just be blackmailed by Russia like Ukraine and other countries? Self developement and job creation is always good for countries. Just saying good for Poland.

True any Ukraine development will cost Russia potential monies. But it's Ukraines right to develope there own natural resources especially with the problems that never stop from Moscow.

Ukras have exhausted their wits- time for stealing, as far as I am concerned
