This is the mentality of an untrained, ethics free, animal predator or child. They see what they want, and they take it, whether cookies, lambs, or the neighbor’s coal mines.

Russia made an coal export deal with China on Friday, February 20, 2022, and India back in November, 2021. China’s Olympic games ended on Sunday, February 22nd, and on Monday, February 21, 2022, Russia announced that it was recognizing parts of eastern Ukraine, as independent countries and openly sending in Russia troops to protect them.

Russia’s “peacekeepers” will surely facilitate the mining and export of Ukraine’s coal, which has apparently been promised to India and China. The Donets Basin (Donbas) is one of the most important proven coal reserves in the world. Putin’s got the killer geo-strategic tactics of an unethical four year old who kicks butt playing Monopoly. It’s easy to be an ethics-free predator.

A pre-school Monopoly player would know what Putin’s up to, why does no one else? Promise (Ukrainian) coal to hugely overpopulated and resource hungry India and China, who are also nuclear weapons states: Take Ukraine coal mining region; put troops to protect mining and export of coal to India and China. Russia already evacuated many of the people, which makes it easier to mine, especially if they want to do surface mining.

Russia, China agree new coal deal for 100 million ton supply: state media; Russia already worked out a deal to deliver 40 million tons of coal to India” By Peter Aitken, Fox News RUSSIA, Published February 20, 2022 3:03pm EST https://www.foxnews.com/world/russia-china-new-coal-deal-state-media

This comes as little surprise, since India’s pretending to sit on the fence, during the UN Security Council meeting, on Monday night, fooled no one. As in the past, “non-aligned” for India means aligned with Russia. China didn’t even seem to play at sitting on the fence. Apparently the “non-aligned” grouping still exists, even though India’s aligned in SCO (Shanghai Cooperation Org) to Russia, China and recently Iran joined. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shanghai_Cooperation_Organisation

India, Russia, and China, all have nuclear weapons, and Ukraine gave theirs up with fake promises of protection. While nuclear power stations are unnecessary, no one should wonder that every country wants a nuclear arsenal to protect itself from invasion. Anyone who refuses to support Ukraine is supporting nuclear proliferation.

Putin orders troops to keep ‘peace’ after recognizing 2 breakaway Ukrainian regions” By Mark Moore and Samuel Chamberlain February 21, 2022 https://nypost.com/2022/02/21/putin-mulls-recognizing-breakaway-ukrainian-regions-as-independent-states/

The Donets Basin (Donbas) is located mainly in the Ukraine with the eastern part of the basin extending into Russia…. The basin covers an area of 60000 km, and contains one of the major coal fields in the world with proven reserves in the order of 60 Gt (Zhykalyak and Privalov,2002; Nazarova et al., 2003).” See: “Coal Geology of the Donets Basin (Ukraine/Russia): An Overview” By V. A. Privalov, R. F. Sachsenhofer. E. A. Panova and V. A. Antsiferov, BHM, 149. Jg. (2004), Heft 6 ea.donntu.edu.ua:8080/jspui/bitstream/123456789/5039/1/Privalov%20et%20al_BHM.pdf

This area, part of the Donbas—short for Donetsky Bassein or “Donets coal basin”—is one of the world’s largest coal mining regions, containing 900 active and inactive mines…. In 2018, Ukraine’s minister of ecology, Ostap Semerak, warned of a potential “second Chernobyl” if Russian-backed separatists intentionally flooded the abandoned YunKom coal mine, where underground nuclear tests in 1979 created a cavernous glass-lined chamber almost 3,000 feet underground called the Object Klivazh. But in April of that year the separatists did just that, turning off the pumps, causing low-level radioactive waste to be carried out with the floodwaters” See: “War has been an environmental disaster for Ukraine” By Jessica McKenzie, February 15, 2022 https://thebulletin.org/2022/02/war-has-been-an-environmental-disaster-for-ukraine

Not only is there coal, but there may also be petroleum – oil and gas, as well.
Petroleum Geology and Resources of the Dnieper-Donets Basin, Ukraine and Russia By Gregory F. Ulmishek
The Dnieper-Donets basin is almost entirely in Ukraine, and it is the principal producer of hydrocarbons in that country. A small southeastern part of the basin is in Russia. The basin is bounded by the Voronezh high of the Russian craton to the northeast and by the Ukrainian shield to the southwest. The basin is principally a Late Devonian rift that is overlain by a Carboniferous to Early Permian postrift sag. The Devonian rift structure extends northwestward into the Pripyat basin of Belarus; the two basins are separated by the Bragin-Loev uplift, which is a Devonian volcanic center. Southeastward, the Dnieper-Donets basin has a gradational boundary with the Donbas foldbelt, which is a structurally inverted and deformed part of the basin.

The sedimentary succession of the basin consists of four tectono-stratigraphic sequences. The prerift platform sequence includes Middle Devonian to lower Frasnian, mainly clastic, rocks that were deposited in an extensive intracratonic basin. The Upper Devonian synrift sequence probably is as thick as 4–5 kilometers. It is composed of marine carbonate, clastic, and volcanic rocks and two salt formations, of Frasnian and Famennian age, that are deformed into salt domes and plugs. The postrift sag sequence consists of Carboniferous and Lower Permian clastic marine and alluvial deltaic rocks that are as thick as 11 kilometers in the southeastern part of the basin. The Lower Permian interval includes a salt formation that is an important regional seal for oil and gas fields. The basin was affected by strong compression in Artinskian (Early Permian) time, when southeastern basin areas were uplifted and deeply eroded and the Donbas foldbelt was formed. The postrift platform sequence includes Triassic through Tertiary rocks that were deposited in a shallow platform depression that extended far beyond the Dnieper-Donets basin boundaries.

A single total petroleum system encompassing the entire sedimentary succession is identified in the Dnieper-Donets basin. Discovered reserves of the system are 1.6 billion barrels of oil and 59 trillion cubic feet of gas. More than one-half of the reserves are in Lower Permian rocks below the salt seal. Most of remaining reserves are in upper Visean-Serpukhovian (Lower Carboniferous) strata. The majority of discovered fields are in salt-cored anticlines or in drapes over Devonian horst blocks; little exploration has been conducted for stratigraphic traps. Synrift Upper Devonian carbonate reservoirs are almost unexplored. Two identified source-rock intervals are the black anoxic shales and carbonates in the lower Visean and Devonian sections. However, additional source rocks possibly are present in the deep central area of the basin. The role of Carboniferous coals as a source rock for gas is uncertain; no coal-related gas has been identified by the limited geochemical studies. The source rocks are in the gas-generation window over most of the basin area; consequently gas dominates over oil in the reserves.

Three assessment units were identified in the Dnieper-Donets Paleozoic total petroleum system. The assessment unit that contains all discovered reserves embraces postrift Carboniferous and younger rocks. This unit also contains the largest portion of undiscovered resources, especially gas. Stratigraphic and combination structural and stratigraphic traps probably will be the prime targets for future exploration. The second assessment unit includes poorly known synrift Devonian rocks. Carbonate reef reservoirs along the basin margins probably will contain most of the undiscovered resources. The third assessment unit is an unconventional, continuous, basin-centered gas accumulation in Carboniferous low-permeability clastic rocks. The entire extent of this accumulation is unknown, but it occupies much of the basin area. Resources of this assessment unit were not estimated quantitativelyhttps://pubs.usgs.gov/bul/2201/E/index.html

The fight for Donbas continues…. Modern-day Ukrainian Cossacks refuse to give up the territories that Ukrainians won with their blood through the centuries.” See: “Donbas Region: How the Cossacks Tamed the Wild Steppe”, July 1, 2019 https://ukraineworld.org/articles/ukraine-explained/donbas-region-how-cossacks-tamed-wild-steppe

Putin’s playbook is like that of Hitler: Hitler pretended he was protecting German minorities, but his moves were driven by taking control of coal and petroleum, iron mines, and industry, as well as the banks.“By the Munich Agreement signed in September 1938 by Great Britain, France, and Germany, Czechoslovakia, under President Eduard Benes, agreed to cede the Sudetenland to Germany…. The Germans exercised great control over the economic and financial life of Sudetenland (completely incorporated into the Reich), the Protectorate, and Slovakia.  This was particularly true in the banking business and in mining and industry.  The Deutsche Bank, the Dresdner Bank, and the Allgemeine Deutsche Credit-Anstalt took over in all 144 branches in Prague.  The Czechoslovak National Bank was replaced by a Reichsbank-controlled bank. The Reichswerke Hermann Goering acquired a significant hold on the Czech economy, acquiring coal and steel mills, as well as two of the top three iron works and three large Czech armaments concerns, including the Skoda Works.  I.G. Farben acquired most of the Czech chemical plants.” https://www.archives.gov/research/holocaust/finding-aid/civilian/rg-84-czech.html

I am simply demanding that the oppression of three and a half million Germans in Czechoslovakia cease and that the inalienable right to self-determination take its place.”
— Adolf Hitler’s speech at the NSDAP Congress 1938
…. As the tepid reaction to the German Anschluss with Austria had shown, the governments of France, the United Kingdom and Czechoslovakia were set on avoiding war at any cost. The French government did not wish to face Germany alone and took its lead from the British government, led by Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain. He contended that Sudeten German grievances were justified and believed that Hitler’s intentions were limited. That made Britain and France advise Czechoslovakia to concede to the German demands.

How did Germany get the Prinzendorf oil field? The Anschluss, when Hitler invaded Austria and no one cared, just like today:
By March 1944, German refined fuels from crude oil primarily came from five sources: oil fields in the vicinity of Hamburg, Germany; the Prinzendorf field in the Vienna Basin; the Hungarian fields near Lake Balaton; the fields near Ploesti, Romania; and small fields in Estonia, Albania, and Poland.19 These crude oil resources remained on track to provide 2.048 million tons of finished fuel products in 1944.

In addition to the limited refined products based on crude oil, Germany in 1944 was producing liquid refined fuel from coal, using the Bergius hydrogenation process and the Fischer-Tropsch synthesis process.20 The Bergius hydrogenation process produced high-quality gasoline suitable for use as an aviation fuel, while the Fischer-Tropsch synthesis process produced high-quality diesel fuel, lubricating oil, and some low-quality gasoline that, when mixed with benzol or benzene, became suitable fuel for cars and trucks.21

In 1944 Bergius hydrogenation plants stood ready to produce 3.780 million tons of fuel for the year, and the Fischer-Tropsch synthesis plants would add another .508 million tons of fuel.22 Additionally, the Germans expected 65 benzol plants located near coal mines to produce 704,000 tons of benzol in 1944, over half designated for use as a fuel additive to increase gasoline octane levels and the remainder for use in the nitrogen, ammunition, and synthetic rubber in-dustries.23 Germany anticipated synthetic production of 4.920 mil-lion tons of finished fuel products. From both its synthetic plants and refined crude, it expected to produce 7.040 million tons of refined fuels in 1944.24…https://www.airuniversity.af.edu/Portals/10/ASPJ/journals/Volume-26_Issue-2/Parramore.pdf

This simply means that Biden’s Sec. of State Blinken will do nothing, as we all knew. Blinken does the opposite of what he says, Blinken’s step-father was very, very pro-Russian. And, Blinken seems to aways leave destruction in his wake, for decades:

Anyone who has studied the so-called “Non-Aligned” countries knows that non-aligned was fake.

This sounds like Putin may have Alzheimer’s disease:
Putin insisted in his speech that “modern Ukraine was entirely created by Russia.”
At another point, Putin noted bitterly that Ukrainians had demolished statues of Lenin — who Putin called Ukraine’s “author and architect” — after the fall of communism.
“This is what they call ‘decommunization,’” he threatened. “Do you want decommunization? Well, that suits us just fine … We are ready to show you what real decommunization means for Ukraine

Most of these ostensible US Senators are either cheap prostitutes or they didn’t have a mind to lose. India was already formally in bed with Russia and China. Now, through SCO, they are formally in bed with Iran. They’ve been in bed with Russia since they were decolonized by the UK. They want to help nuclear armed India with more military equipment? And, space cooperation? Are they that stupid or that corrupt?
Cornyn, Warner Statement on U.S.-India Relations
