Declaring a variable without setting a value-I hate python

Is there a way to declare a variable without assigning it a value. In Visual Basic, you can use Dim or Public or Private to declare a variable(ex: Dim apples as Integer). How do you do this with Python?

Here’s the situation: I have a single python script. I want to create the variables and set their value only when the scene initializes, since I guess you can’t declare variables in python. I think they made python too simple.

If there’s no solution to this problem, how can I reference another python script and have it work when I make a runtime.

example:

import TestScript

TestScript.testvariable="testvalue"

This doesn’t seem to work with runtimes.

why not just assign it None?

blah = None

It’s ok. I got it working. I don’t hate python anymore. Thanks, though.
