The head of the Donetsk People’s Republic, Denis Pushilin, said in a video message on his Telegram channel that he instructed the government of the DPR to organize round-the-clock unloading and delivery of fuel to gas stations and involve the Ministry of Emergency Situations in this.
“People should see changes within one, two or three days, they should see fuel not by coupons, but for cash at our gas stations in the amount that they need,” he said.
Pushilin also said that the fuel has arrived on the territory of the DPR, and the amount of incoming fuel continues to increase, but the difficulty now lies in “delivering this fuel to our settlements, to gas stations.”
Earlier, the head of the DPR government , Vitaly Khotsenko , said that there was a slight shortage of fuel at gas stations in the republic, which was caused by shelling of oil storage facilities by the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU).
Another reason for the shortage of fuel, according to him, is the liberation of the territory of the republic. Khotsenko noted that the recently liberated settlements “require significant supplies of fuel and lubricants”, in connection with which the companies are reviewing the volume of purchases and developing new logistics schemes.
Republican Senator Tom Cotton expressed the opinion that the war of the American leader Joseph Biden with the national energy sector undermines the country’s security, exacerbating the US dependence on the green technologies of the People’s Republic of China.
“We here in the US are fighting against energy extraction, while at the same time becoming dependent on Chinese energy,” the senator said during a Fox News broadcast.
Based on his statements, the policy of the president of the state is a failure that can lead to dangerous consequences for the United States: the strengthening of the alliance between Russia and China, as well as the loss of the energy market in Europe.
“Europe could buy oil and gas from us to heat homes and businesses, instead of freezing this gloomy winter,” the Public News Service quoted the senator as saying
