As the world sees the true crisis that is the result of a lack of being energy independent, Shell Gas company is sticking to its morals saying it will no longer buy Gas from Russia. Average gas prices have hit their highest in fourteen years, and are approaching all-time highs.

On Tuesday, Shell announced it will immediately stop purchasing Russian crude oil. The company, based in the U.K., also said it would be willing to close its service stations in response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

In a statement, Shell said the move follows last week’s decision to end investments in Russia and that it is “aligned with new government guidance.” “We will do this as fast as possible, but the physical location and availability of alternatives mean this could take weeks to complete and will lead to reduced throughput at some of our refineries” said the statement.

Shell CEO Ben Van Beurden went so far as to apologize for the company’s purchase of a cargo of Russian crude for refining into gas and diesel as recent as last week. “We are acutely aware that our decision…despite being made with security of supplies at the forefront of our thinking – was on the right one and we are sorry” he said.

On Monday, the Kremlin threatened to cut supplies of natural gas to Germany for its decision to end Russia’s Nord Stream 2 pipeline project. Russia also threatened that oil prices could hit $300 a barrel if the West bans Russian oil.

National Review reports:

The company will also start shuttering its service stations, aviation fuels and lubricants operations in Russia while kickstarting a phased withdrawal from Russian petroleum products, pipeline gas and liquified natural gas…

…The company pledged to donate profits from the remaining barrels of Russian oil it processes to a fund to help the people of Ukraine.

    If the rest of the story of the Russia/Ukraine saga got any media coverage these companies & countries trying to destroy Russia would know how ridiculous their actions are.

    NATO & The US under Obama started this mess % & The EU joined the party.

    Putin is no “Choir Boy” but NATO, The US, & EU have violated every treaty ever made with Russia & have installed their chosen leaders in Ukraine & raped the country just like Biden & his son.

Trump: Tanks to Ukraine could escalate to use of ‘NUKES’

Former President Donald Trump stated bluntly on Truth Social,  “FIRST COME THE TANKS, THEN COME THE NUKES. Get this crazy war ended, NOW. So easy to do!”

Trump was referring to the escalation of war in Ukraine. He, like many other commentators and lawmakers, are warning that the decision to continue sending weapons – and now tanks – could potentially lead to the use of “nuclear weapons.”

It’s mission creep and it’s dangerous, they say.

Why? Because Russian President Valdimir Putin has indicated in two different speeches that he would use nuclear weapons to defend Russia, if needed. Those warnings are not just bluster but a very real possibility.

And the escalation of war is visible.

Russia launched 55 missiles strikes across Ukraine Thursday, leaving 11 dead. The strikes come one day after the United States and Germany agreed to send tanks to Ukraine in an effort to aide the country. 47 of the 55 missiles were shot down according to Ukraine’s Air Force command.

Eleven lives were lost and another 11 were injured additionally leaving 35 buildings damaged in the wake of the attacks. According to The New York Times, Denys Shmyhal, said in a post on Telegram. “The main goal is energy facilities, providing Ukrainians with light and heat,” he said.

Ukraine is now demanding that they need F-16 fighter jets. In a post on twitter Ukrainian lawmaker, Oleksiy Goncharenko said, “Missiles again over Ukraine. We need F16.”

The US has abstained from sending advanced jets in the chances that a volatile decision could foster more dangerous attacks like former President Trump’s post on Truth referred to. If the US did authorize the decision to lend Ukraine the F-16 jets Netherlands’ foreign minister, Wopke Hoekstra, would be willing to supply them. According to The New York Times, Hoekstra told Dutch lawmakers, “We are open-minded… There are no taboos.”

F-16 fighter jets are complex to work on, they are not the average aircraft that can be learned in a matter of weeks. It can take months for pilots to learn how to fly these birds. European and US officials have the concern that Ukrainian forces could potentially use the jets to fly into Russian airspace and launch attacks on Russian soil.

Western allies are trying to avoid such a provocation, because that could lead to nuclear warfare in reference to what Putin has said he would do to defend his country.
