Montana Sen Daines, meeting w/a man accused of money laundering, Tymoshenko calls him "Putin's puppet."

Recall, ROSNEFT and Carter Page:…

Putin relative appointed to management of state gas giant Gazprom
"Much of the recent growth has occurred in areas such as the Permian region in western TX and eastern NM, the Federal Offshore Gulf of MX, and the Bakken region in ND and MT," it added. 🎯…
"The United States has "likely" surpassed Russia and Saudi Arabia to become the world's largest producer of crude oil, the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) says."
