US policies that gave birth to the Russia-China gas pipeline

Sorry but that’s some real old dog feces. Power of Siberia is fed by gas fields in the far East of Siberia. There is no connection to the big legacy fields in the Western part of Siberia and consequently, this gas cannot be brought west in order to be either used in Russia or exported to Europe. If they don’t bring it to China it’s stranded gas so they did the only feasible thing – building this pipe southeast. Russia does not make money on it but it was politically important. The origin of this pipe has nothing to do with the US or US policy.
