    Reliance on ruskie gas is likely what is driving the phase out of gas boilers.

    With all the rain the UK should invest in more hydropower, such as little waterwheels in the gutter downpipes. One for dragons den, if get a patent.

    No, it's great time - reserves are full and plenty of liquid gas are around the world, demand will fall in March - best part is that the way Russian gas production works is that if you stop it then you are fecked.

    Gasprom is Put1ns personal money too.

    Well, when the main password was (presumably they've now changed it) apparently "SolarWinds123" () they only have 2FA to overcome and an inside job (either corrupt, duressed, or disgrunted staffer) makes that simple.

    I guess with clown world we're now into the realm of top Trump password complexity. Though 'covfefe' was a tad harder to break than 'MAGA2020'

    Perhaps the US could send some digestive biscuits to the Kremlin and ask nicely? Short of continued tangible threats and action I don't know what deterrence would work. The main issue now is that if the US intelligence agencies receive authorization to disable many Russian core infrastructure assets, then it seems they may be able to reciprocate. One thing Russia doesn't have is good infrastructure and a plan B or C. I feel sorry for the people living there, having visited myself. It's a tuliphole, even in Moscow, unless you are well connected and rich. I'm only glad that nowhere in developed countries do we see such misinformation and poverty as they see in Russia. The average age of male death says all we need to know.

    Throughout the world at transit interconnects, within carrier networks, traffic is monitred by UK's GCHQ and the USA's NSA. When the Russian government state they aren't a part of a hack, well, that part is difficult to dispute. However it is absolutely possible to prove that the packets used to complete the hack came from Russia. Given that multiple VPNs and TOR will have been used, it is a more complex task to piece the information together - but piece the intelligence agencies will and it will be demonstrable that the Russian government was involved in this, if that is indeed the case.

    China has a flourishing private sector and I do not believe they would wish to have tit-for-tat attacks, especially towards private sector businesses. What does Russia have? I can count the tech and products I've used from Russia on one hand. Well, on one finger actually.

    It's about time that the west considers cutting off Russia from the internet once the evidence is in on this longer term hack that has ocurred. Given most fair countries own the transit points and interconnects it seems the only way to resolve Russia behaving rogue. They are a fossiel fuel powerhouse, but that is it. They don't have much to offer other countries, the food is extremely poor and the populace seem happy to accept it being this way. A few years hard labour on the Russian government seems fair enough.
    Sanction Russia to stop them using Visa, MasterCard and other international payment systems.
