Oil in decline – energy minister
Crude will not be around forever despite high global demand, the UAE’s energy minister warned
Oil will not be here forever and is already in “decline mode,” Suhail Al-Mazrouei, the energy minister of the United Arab Emirates, a major crude exporter, has said.

Speaking at the ADIPEC energy conference in Abu Dhabi on Thursday, Al-Mazrouei warned against “wishful thinking” of assuming that oil “is going to be there forever.”

“No matter how much we defend it, it’s in decline mode,” the official added.

The remark comes as OPEC released its ‘World Oil Outlook’ earlier this week, which forecasts global oil demand continuing to rise until 2045 due to a focus on energy security even as the world moves toward renewable energy.

The report noted that oil is expected to retain the largest share in the global energy mix, accounting for 29% over the forecast period, and that the industry will require $12.1 trillion in investment by 2045 to meet demand.

Experts point out that OPEC’s outlook doesn’t match the forecasts issued by other major entities. For example, last week the International Energy Agency (IEA) said in its own world energy outlook that it expects fossil fuel consumption to peak or flatten in the early 2030s due to attempts to accelerate energy transition policies in light of the conflict in Ukraine.

Japanese may be asked to cut winter power use – media
The curbs could reportedly help avert blackouts
The Japanese government plans to call on households and businesses to save electricity when possible, starting from December, NHK broadcaster reported this week, citing an “unpredictable” power supply situation.

According to the report, Tokyo says utilities are likely to secure a reserve power supply capacity rate of 3%, the minimum needed for a stable supply nationwide. However, procurement costs of liquefied natural gas remain high. Officials are reportedly blaming Russia’s military operation in Ukraine for the higher costs.

“The government will endorse on Tuesday a request for households and businesses to save power between December and March, without going out of their way to do so,” NHK reported, noting that a similar request had been made in the summer, when demand for power surged as temperatures went up.

The media outlet quoted the authorities as saying that if all households manage to cut energy consumption by 1%, enough electricity could be saved to power 15,000 convenience stores for a day. “The government will ask that people layer their clothes indoors and switch off lights that are not in use.”

Tokyo also believes that a 1% cut in electricity use by all offices would be enough to power some 100 thousand households, according to NHK. It reportedly plans to ask companies to reduce their use of lights and air conditioning when possible.

Russia accounts for around 10% of Japan’s LNG imports annually. The East Asian nation has drastically increased energy purchases from Moscow in recent months amid growing fears of a shortage, data shows.

Kiev may hatch double dam breach plot – Russian official
The attack would result in flooding that could potentially kill thousands of civilians, a senior member of the Zaporozhye administration warned
Ukrainian forces could cause catastrophic damage by blowing up two major dams on the Dnieper River. Any dam breaches would flood a massive region, including the town that hosts Europe’s largest nuclear power plant, a senior official in Russia’s Zaporozhye region has warned.

“I cannot rule out that they will try to combine two scenarios. First, they could blow up Dnieproges, and later the Kakhovka hydropower plant,” Vladimir Rogov told TASS on Monday.

Dnieproges, or the Dnieper Hydroelectric Power Plant, is located in the Kiev-controlled city of Zaporozhye. Downstream from it is the city of Energodar, which hosts the Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant (NPP). If the dam were breached, the city and the nuclear facility would be flooded, Rogov explained.

The Kakhovskaya hydroelectric dam is located further down the Dnieper River in Kherson Region and is crucial for the NPP to feed its cooling systems.

The hydropower plant has been the focus of mutual accusations by Moscow and Kiev officials. Last week Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky claimed that Russian forces had planted explosives and were preparing to blow it up and urged an international monitoring mission to visit the facility.

Russian officials accused Ukrainian troops of deliberately targeting the dam. Further down the Dnieper is the city of Kherson, which would be flooded, if the Kakhovskaya barrier was breached. The city is located on the Western bank of the river and may come under intensive Ukrainian fire as Kiev seeks to capture it from Russia, according to regional officials.

The mayor of Novaya Kakhovka, the city that hosts the hydropower plant, reported on Monday that at least three Ukrainian shells had hit the dam overnight.

“The situation is quite tense,” Vladimir Leontyev told TASS. “The number of rocket strikes is increasing”

Operators of the plant are reducing the water level in the reservoir held by the dam to reduce potential damage to communities downstream, the mayor added.

Vassily Nebenzia, Moscow’s representative to the UN, warned last week that thousands of civilians could be killed, if Ukraine were to destroy the Kakhovskaya dam, and urged other members of the UN Security Council to prevent that from happening.

Kherson and Zaporozhye Regions were declared part of Russia together with the People’s Republics of Donetsk and Lugansk earlier this month after voters in those territories overwhelmingly supported the move in referendums. Kiev rejected the votes as a “sham” and pledged to use military force to recapture lost territories.

Iran says it supplied drones to Russia before Ukraine conflict
Tehran acknowledges it had provided Moscow with a “small number” of UAVs but denies ever supplying missiles
Iran has acknowledged for the first time it handed over military drones to Russia, claiming, however, that the shipments were completed before the Ukraine conflict broke out in late February.

Tehran also denied claims that it had provided Moscow with missiles.

Iranian state news agency, IRNA, cites Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian as saying “This fuss made by some Western countries, that Iran has provided missiles and drones to Russia to help the war in Ukraine - the missile part is completely wrong.”

The diplomat explained that the “drone part is true, and we provided Russia with a small number of drones months before the Ukraine war.”

Amirabdollahian also claimed that Tehran and Kiev had agreed two weeks ago to hold discussions on alleged instances of Russian troops using Iranian weapons. According to the minister, the Ukrainian delegation pulled out of the planned meeting at the last minute, however.

The diplomat also gave assurances that Tehran would “not remain indifferent” if evidence was presented that proves the Russian military is using Iranian drones in Ukraine.

Reuters reported that the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry had not immediately replied to a request for comment.

In early October, Russia launched a massive campaign of airstrikes targeting major Ukrainian cities, with particular emphasis on power plants and other critical infrastructure. These attacks involved missiles as well as so-called ‘kamikaze’ drones.

The Ukrainian government claims the Russian military has been increasingly relying on Iranian-made Shahed-136 UAVs to conduct such strikes – which Moscow denies.

Kiev was making similar allegations about Tehran’s alleged involvement as early as in September, with Ukraine downgrading its diplomatic relations with Iran later that month.

In mid-October, Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba proposed severing ties with the Islamic Republic altogether.

The EU and the UK were quick to side with Ukraine on the issue, and last month slapped additional punitive measures on the already heavily sanctioned Iran.

Russian should become extinct in Ukraine – security chief
The language is part of Moscow’s propaganda, Defence Council boss claims
The Russian language should be eradicated in Ukraine as it is allegedly being used as a tool by Moscow to wield influence on Ukrainians, one of the country’s key security officials has claimed.

The Russian language is nothing but an “element of enemy propaganda and brainwashing of our people,” Alexey Danilov, the head of Ukraine’s National Security and Defense Council, said on the ‘Big Lviv Talks’ show on Friday.

The official also spoke in favor of Ukrainians learning English instead.

According to Danilov, the very idea that Ukrainians have to understand the Russian tongue is a “dangerous narrative.”

“Look, we don’t want anything from them [Russians]. Why don’t they leave us alone? Let them go to their swamps and croak in the Russian language,” he stated.

The senior official went on to criticize pundits and experts who speak Russian while appearing on Ukrainian TV.

According to the 2001 census, approximately 14.3 million Ukrainians (29% of the population) speak Russian as their first language. Some other estimates put that number even higher.

The language is particularly widespread in the eastern and southern regions of the country. Ever since the Maidan coup back in 2014, Moscow has been consistently accusing the Ukrainian government of systematically discriminating against Russian-speakers.

The perceived violations of the linguistic minority’s rights were also cited by the secessionist movements in the Donetsk and Lugansk Regions, parts of which went on to become the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics, respectively.

Russian President Vladimir Putin recently cautioned his country against taking cues from those who engage in ‘cancel culture’. Speaking at a media conference in Astana, Kazakhstan, he noted that around three million Ukrainians permanently reside in Russia.

“How can we prohibit their language and culture? We don’t have anything of the kind on our minds,” Putin added.

Commenting on reports about a man who had been fined in Moscow for listening to Ukrainian music in his car, the president said that attempts to ban the Ukrainian language in Russia were “illegal in themselves.”
