Putin's way


Russia's monopoly control over the transportation of oil and gas from #Chechnya, #Armenia and #Iran towards Afghanistan and to the port of Karachi in Pakistan linking it with lucrative markets in India would be another major achievement of Vladimir Putin.

It's worth notng that "#Afghanistan" has large natural gas reserves too and also provides #Russian president #Putin a potential route to export gas to the ports of Pakistan or to the growing market in India.

"The route through Afghanistan is the one that would bring Central Asian oil closest to Asian markets and thus would be the cheapest in terms of transporting the oil." John J Maresca of UNOCAL oil once said.

Chechnya was prevented by Russian forces from becoming an independent state because of the major oil and gas pipeline passing through Chechnya.

Genocider #Putin killed at least 300.000 Chechens (*) for that & completely destroyed #Grozny.

The Putin administration also approved financial aid to the #Taliban & military aid to the Kabul regime along with Pakistan's #ISI military intelligence's provision of arms, training and ISI-trained Pakistani "pseudo-jihadist" volunteers to fight alongside the Taliban in order to secure the region against "#ISIS" based branch known as #WilayetKhorasan.
