Press TV interviewed Bruce Gagnon, a coordinator from Global Network against Weapons & Nuclear Power in Space, who believes that the US wants to destabilize Russia by creating chaos around the country so as to gain access to Russia’s immense amount of natural gas and oil in the Arctic.

It’s always about gas and oil.

Via Sputnik News Agency…

Russia has the world’s largest supply of natural gas. With the melting of the ice around the Arctic due to climate change, Russia will have a massive land border with the oil-and-gas rich Arctic Sea. Western corporations want to get their hands on these resources and that is the reason why Washington plans to bring chaos inside of Russia, Gagnon said.

“They hope to be able to create chaos inside… and having regime change in Moscow. That’s the bottom line. That’s the goal that the United States wants to produce.”

The Arctic Ocean is extremely rich in natural resources, especially oil and gas. According to estimates, the bottom of the Arctic Ocean has large deposits of oil and gas, including 15 percent of the world’s oil reserves and 30 percent of natural gas reserves, Press TV reported.

In 2014, Moscow decided to boost Russia’s military presence in the Arctic. The country’s revised military doctrine emphasizes the protection of national interests in the oil-and-gas rich Arctic regions.
