A stunning report prepared by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) outlining the agenda of Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov for his meeting today with US Secretary of State John Kerry at the Hague Nuclear Security Summit reveals that President Obama is still in “shock” after being ordered by the Chairman, President, and CEO ofExxon Mobil Corporation, Rex Tillerson, to allow Russia’s annexation of Crimea or face “immediate domestic political annihilation.”
According to this report, Tillerson is the head of this giant American multinational oil and gas corporation, headquartered in Irving, Texas, that is a direct descendant of John D. Rockefeller’s Standard Oil Company and is the world’s third largest company by revenue.
Important to note, this report continues, is that Exxon Mobil has long charted a course separate from that of theUnited States government as evidenced by Tillerson’s predecessor, former CEO Lee Raymond, once stating, “I’m not a U.S. company, and I don’t make decisions based on what’s good for the U.S.”
Tillerson, this report further notes, has in many ways merged Exxon Mobil with Russian energy giant Rosneft. Not only are they exploring for oil together in the Arctic as part of a $500 billion joint venture formed in 2011, these two companies are planning to frack shale fields in Siberia, drill a well in the Black Sea, and start construction on a natural gas export terminal in eastern Russia.
Exxon Mobil has such a good relationship with Russia, this report says, that last summer (2013) Putin awarded Tillerson the Order of Friendship during an economic forum in St. Petersburg.
As to Tillerson’s actions in averting a war over Ukraine, this report says, was his ordering Obama to abandon all support for Japan’s claim to the resource-rich Sea of Okhotsk before the United Nations Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf (CLCS) in order to prevent an all-out Russian invasion.
Obama immediately obeyed Tillerson’s demand, this report continues, and on 15 March, after all US objections were dropped, the UN awarded the Sea of Okhotsk to Russia thus opening the way for massive oil and gas exploration on this continental shelf of which both Exxon Mobil and Rosneft will be the beneficiaries of.
This report also notes that Tillerson further ordered Obama to immediately allow Russia’s annexation of Crimea as both Exxon Mobil and Rosneft are currently investing billons to recover the over 1.25 trillion cubic meters of conventional gas recently discovered in the Black Sea, and which many of the world’s energy giants are now, also, rushing deep-water drilling rigs to the area to recover too.
With Crimea now being brought back into Russia, this report continues, the formerly Ukrainian state-ownedChornomornaftogaz oil and gas company, located in Simferopol (capitol of Crimea), which stands to make billions from the Black Sea gas bonanza, can now be nationalized and sold to Exxon Mobil and Rosneft as opposed to being “looted by Kiev.”
Critical to note, this report says, is that the 23 February Ukrainian coup d’etat was instigated by the US and EU after the Yanukovych government turned down US Chevron Corp’s and EU’s Shell’s “fuzzy-edge but claimed-as-enticing proposals” to accelerate investment in shale gas and shale oil E&P (exploration & production) in Ukraine.
Should the Yanukovych government have accepted the Chevron-Shell offer, this report warns, both Exxon Mobil and Rosneft stood to lose billions, but which (obviously) Tillerson was not about to let happen.
Most intriguing about this report are the excerpts of the conversations held between Tillerson and Obama where the Exxon Mobil CEO appears to have lectured the American leader on the realties of both Ukraine and Crimea stating that without them being split apart, stability could never be realized due to the advantage held by Russian language voters over their Western-leaning counterparts.
In fact, this report notes, with Crimea and its over 1 million Russian voters now out of Ukraine, it is now assured that this economically bankrupt nation will become yet another “financial black hole” to both the US and EU after its citizens vote, on 25 May, for what they mistakenly believe will be a Western-style government that will lift them out of their poverty and misery.
And with Ukraine’s new Right Sector leader, Igor Mazur, railing against “Jewish Oligarchs” he has vowed to wipe out, this report concludes, the Western targeting of the business interests of these oligarchs does nothing more than open the doors for the takeover of a sizeable portion of Ukraine’s private sector by EU and US corporations.
Even worse, MoFA experts in this report say, with Ukraine’s external debt now on the order of $140 billion, the US-EU-IMF aid package (said to be on the order of $15 billion) doesn’t even approach this troubled nations outstanding short-term debt which is $65 billion, more than four times the amount promised by these Westerners.
In other words, this report says, this loan is “fictitious money” as not one dollar of this money will enter Ukraine, but will, instead, go to its main creditors…two of whom are Exxon Mobil and Rosneft.
