According to the TV channel “1 TV”, in Europe there is no doubt that Russia will honor all its obligations regarding carbohydrates supply to its western partners. Meanwhile, there is the danger of a new gas crisis. Problems will appear if by the beginning of winter, transit storage facilities on Ukrainian territory will not get filled.

At the same time Kiev’s authorities continue to cultivate an image of Russia as a foe. Many experts consider that authorities are using the element of foreign threat in an attempt to save current ratings despite the most serious increase in Housing and Communal Services tariffs for population. Tariffs for gas and electricity have already increased and will be followed by water and heating energy.

Chief Adviser to Director General of the Analytical Center Leonid Grigoriev, commented on the present situation to «1 TV». He didn’t give the most positive forecast: “My prediction is that a big propaganda is very likely to happen: “Gazprom” doesn’t supply gas to population. An extreme situation will settle in. This will lead to cities getting shut down”.

According to “1 TV” journalists, Europe will, first of all, warm itself and not Ukraine.
