``in summary, Ukraine will destroy its economy, incurring $7 billion in costs, just to spite Gazprom and force Europe as leverage and to escalate the conflict, because without Russian gas Europe is powerless. Who wins here? Clearly not the Ukraine people, who are looking at not only soaring inflation as Kiev will have no choice but to inflate away this $7 billion loss through "printing", not to mention have a cold winter to look forward to. The answer: Burisma Holdings, where Joe Biden's son is a director and which will promptly commence shale gas exploration as an "alternative" to Russian gas, over the objections of the local people - after all can't let a crisis go to waste.''
