U and B were sitting on a pipe: how energy transit of Russia becomes its weakness


Photo: kremlin.ru


Moscow did not have time to take a breath after the hassle arranged by the Ukrainian Naftogaz in the process of agreeing on a new contract for pumping our “blue fuel” through the Ukrainian GTS, as Russian energy exporters seem to have a new cause for concern. Now, however, the order of the day is the transit of not gas, but oil, and it’s not Kiev, but Minsk, that will “pump the law”. Nevertheless, a rather unpleasant tendency is evident. It seems that the “transit wars" are beginning to turn into a kind of permanent disaster for Russia, besides bearing not only economic problems. Why is this happening and what can it lead to?

Is lean transit better than a good quarrel?


Without completely sharing the mood of the bonfirers in every way the New Year’s agreement between our Gazprom and the Ukrainian Naftogaz “all-prodigals”, I will allow myself to note that it leaves a rather unpleasant residue. Yes, the risk of disruption of energy supplies to Europe and "getting" into considerable penalties has been removed. Yes, instead of the sum of the sky-high sums of “compensations” filed in the lawsuits with which almost all European courts fell asleep, Kiev would have to be content with “just” 3 billion dollars. But damn it, why do we even have to pay this amount - especially given the “deadlocked” issue on the so-called “Yanukovych debt”, which is actually the most ordinary loan Ukraine took from Russia, and it seems to give back , and has no thoughts? Concessions, even in minimal amounts, are all the same concessions. And, each time making them in a situation when the truth is actually on its side, Moscow willingly makes it clear: you can squeeze your own out of it. As they say, not by washing, so by skating. To whom? Yes, more and more new applicants to solve their internal problems and increase the welfare of their own country at the expense of ours. The clearest example of this is the behavior of Belarus, whose leader, not at all embarrassed, openly declares that he is going to “seek an alternative” to cooperation with Russia, being inspired by the Ukrainian example.

The supply of oil to the Belarusian refineries, which ceased on January 3, became the logical ending of the long, difficult and tedious negotiations between Moscow and Minsk. In the process of such, our partners tried to squeeze at least the cancellation of the premium of $ 10 per ton of "black gold", which was supposed to Russian suppliers last year. Like, and so push your tax maneuver, fiends, well, at least throw something off! As a result, they bargained until January 1, when the old contract ceased to operate, and the oil refineries left without raw materials had to be urgently transferred to the minimum allowable production volumes, while assuring citizens that “the bins were full” and there would be enough reserves for a long time. Export, however, had to be stopped immediately and in full. However, according to the information available from direct participants in the process, Transneft and Belneftekhim, deliveries are about to resume, or have already been resumed. It seems that there were enthusiasts in Russia who were ready to work even without bonus ones. One way or another, but in this case we are talking about extremely short-term contracts that can “close the question” for a maximum of January-February. And then everything will surely return to square one. That is, to endless negotiations with the use of Minsk blackmail so beloved recently. In the already historical An interview with Ekho Moskvy Lukashenko said that if he couldn’t come to an agreement, he would “take one pipe of the Friendship.” And if "it goes fine" - then the second after. "Transition blackmail" in its purest form.

Trumpet voice


Talk about some “alternative oil supplies,” for which Druzhba will be involved in reverse operation, has been conducted by Minsk for quite some time. According to rumors, after returning from Russia from the next unsuccessful high-level talks, Lukashenko gave the command "to speed up the process." The most unpleasant thing is that there are plenty of people who want to participate in the destruction of the established system of Russian energy exports to Europe through Belarus. Particular zeal in this matter is shown by Poland and Latvia. Representatives of the latter at various levels, from the heads of specialized companies to the country's president Gitanas Nauseda vying with each other promise Belarus a “bright European future” and millions of tons of Venezuelan oil, they only need to turn their backs on Russia that does not respect them. The Poles promise to fill the country with “black gold” from the USA and Saudi Arabia ... The only problem is that, firstly, this oil (even taking into account the tax hate maneuver Minsk) will come out “golden” compared to Russian and secondly, even all these barkers together, will not be able to cover the rather big needs of Belarus, which in recent years has turned the export of high-quality and unprecedentedly cheap petroleum products made from Russian raw materials into one of the cornerstones of its own economy.

Most likely, in the near future, we will have new “dances” around “deep integration” with a distinct oil and gas subtext. And in the process of them, no doubt, more than once or twice there will be threats to “pick up the pipe” or “block” it. It is very disappointing in this case that the biggest lovers of using the “trumpet voice” as the main argument in any disputes with Moscow are just the former republics of the USSR, which were lucky to be the territories through which trunk lines were laid to the West in Soviet times oil and gas pipelines. Somehow, their current “rulers” are suddenly completely beaten away by memory and they start beating themselves in the chest, declaring the sixteen republics built by the joint labor a “national treasure”, giving them an unconditional right to twist hands and twist ropes. The funny thing is that the sad example of Ukraine, which instead of a complete victory over Gazprom this year barely managed to bargain for truncated transit for an indefinite period, does not teach anyone anything. Now Belarus is demanding completely unreasonable benefits for energy supplies only on the basis that “Friendship” runs through its lands. What is such a tax maneuver ?! This will lead to an increase in prices of $ 20 per ton of oil, that is, to a rise in price of 5% from last year. Guard, rob!

Bulgaria and Turkey - next in line?


At the same time, Belneftekhim, without any embarrassment, acknowledges that until recently they received “black gold” from our country at a price of just over 80% of its real market value. This is what made it possible to dispense refined petroleum products at prices 30-40% lower than average in Europe or even the same Ukraine. Give dumping! No wonder that with such a “constructive” approach, our country is simply forced to build different “streams” one after another. It’s better to invest money once, but then do not have a headache with such “partners”. However, whatever one may say, we have nowhere to go completely from the transit countries seeking to “stick to the pipe”. Now we have Bulgaria on the way of the Turkish Stream ... It has already managed to bury one gas pipeline. Now, it seems, the Bulgarians promise to behave approximately, but from time to time they also give cause for concern. Recently, the head of the Alternative for the Bulgarian Revival (ABV) party, Rumen Petkov, made a statement regarding some of the “problems” that exist in bringing to mind the 40-kilometer-long section of a gas pipeline running through the country. Something there, according to him, is not it either with welding works, or with the inspection of these works ... Well, they’ll finish where they go. In any case, gas from the Turkish Stream through Bulgaria has already gone to Greece and Northern Macedonia.

The main question, however, is not this, but whether Sofia would later have the desire, using even a tiny, but a piece of pipe, to “correct a little” something in her favor in relations with Moscow? A bad example is known to be contagious.

Turkey is generally a separate issue. Only in the last five years, our relations with Ankara have experienced peaks, and failures, and ups, and crises that threaten the war. Now everything seems to be fine, and the leaders of the two countries are about to officially launch the new gas pipeline in a festive atmosphere. Nevertheless, Ankara itself did not increase last year, but reduced the consumption of Russian gas. The reason is simple - attempts to “squeeze” serious discounts on “blue fuel”, which even became the subject of personal negotiations between Vladimir Putin and Recep Erdogan, failed. Go to the bazaar, look for cheaper ... Let's hope that the proud descendants of the Janissaries will not try to return to this issue, turning into “holders” of a part of the Turkish Stream pipe. And they don’t even decide to use this moment in case of any other disagreements between the states. There can be plenty of reasons: take at least the situation in Libya itself, the views on which Moscow and Ankara, apparently, differ in the most dramatic way. After all, politics is politics, and the pipe is the pipe ...

By and large, to get out of the situation when energy transit in one way or another turns into the “Achilles heel” of Russia, perhaps, you can only get rid of the practice of preferences for certain countries as such. Enough, have already tried "brotherly" ... It's time to start counting in fairness. In this case, perhaps, the attempts to use these or those pipes with our energy carriers inside as weapons against us.

        By tradition, it’s just the right time to blame the Soviet leaders for laying mines under the oil and National Treasure.

        Negligent leaders are always to blame for their predecessors.

        . Now Belarus is demanding completely unreasonable benefits for energy supplies

        The enemy Ukraine was ceded; why shouldn’t Belarus give privileges to friendly Belarus? They “won” with Ukraine by signing a contract, now Belarusians also want to “lose”.

        And really, why not let go of finished high-quality products at appropriate prices, and not raw materials ?!
        And yet - if we have such "friendly", "pipe" neighbors, why not build hubs in front of our borders and release raw materials taking into account transit from the production zone? And let Europe then deal with its “friendly” transit countries itself!

    Namely, just as the Slav brothers behave with us, so we need friendship as friendship, and tablets separately. Based on past and present realities, Russia loses allies, accustoming them first to freebies, and then weaning them from the free nipples, making them enemies. An example of Ukraine clearly speaks about this ..

      All this resembles a situation when the groom pestering the bride who is cunning, i.e. wants to sell to someone more expensive or even wants to always suck profit from the groom forever, promising everything.
      And on a serious question: What can Belarus be interested in in Russia? What, besides low prices for raw materials? Maybe what a great idea we can offer them, what bright future we can call them into. After all, they are not blind and see that Europe lives richer than Russia, they can choose, and if mutually beneficial cooperation with us does not work out, then we need to determine priorities - that we need from them and start a bargain: "You give me this, and I to you then.

        Oil is ALREADY shipped at Russian ports and the Belarusian pipe is no longer an argument. The gas pipeline system will strip the arguments of the other different transit countries. But you can’t forgive the insolent, you must certainly be punished even for obscene thoughts: tough! Lukashenko does not answer on the phone, do not let him on the threshold.

          Yes, we are great, and everything around us is traitors and parasites! Do not let go, do not answer, drive away! And what? Well, Belarus will buy gas and oil through Europe. Due to the increase in purchases, Europe will sell discounts. We will not refuse this. We will supply Europe to the last. And Belarus will receive gas and oil well, maybe a little more expensive. But the ring of "traitors of Great Russia" will be closed: Baltic States-Belarus-Ukraine. Will this make us feel better? Well, how do you decide to organize uniform transit tariffs for the transport of the "aggressive neighbor"?

        You answer that Russia does not like the market for Belarusian goods and a reliable supplier of low-cost energy resources? The fact that Europe (its old part) lives richer than Russia is not news. But the fact that Belarusian shrimps (in the broad sense) are looking forward there is news. There are, of course, other sources of improving well-being, apart from selling black soil and forest, such as being a parasite like Poland, but Europe will not bear the second, and the third, and there are a dozen more who want to sit on the neck of the EU, as the famous Bolivar.

Well, we all hardly see anything in the end. The rest is private owners and foreign creditors at odds .. But how many emotions and righteous anger in the struggle for the Swiss and Cypriot offshore!

      Why do we sell raw resources? All these pipelines will never pay off, they will be built at the expense of future pensions, as usual dividends will be paid first, and then they will quietly cover losses from the budget. Belarusians are two steps ahead of us, they distill oil into fuel and already sell it, much more expensive. And for some reason it’s weak for us .. And overtake in plastics and sell them? All sorts? Three times weak ..

      By the way, like a cherry on a cake. The next pipeline to China, it was decided to cost through the territory of Mongolia! To make pleasant to today's Mongolian friends. I will not say who personally made this decision ..

      Do you know that we have a union state with Belarus? The legitimate question on their part is: "Why is the state a union, and you want to tear money from us, as from non-union?"
      It’s just that our management’s efficiency is such that the last allies are already looking for ways to move away from Russia.

          Because he is an ally. Roll him a price tag for everything above the world and there will be no ally. Please note: during the USSR there was a belt of allied countries: East Germany, Poland, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Yugoslavia, Romania. The Warsaw Pact. After the well-known events, we lost it (fu, traitors). Probably forever. He was replaced by the CIS Belarus and Ukraine. It took 20 years for this belt to be crooked. Where is the CIS? We don’t even remember. They also lost (fu, traitors). Who is next in line for "betrayal" - Pskov or Smolensk?
          I don’t rummage around the structure of our relations, but the first thing that comes to mind is multi-axle tractors for missiles and the deployment of our base in Belarus.
          I had the opportunity in Kubinka at the “Army 2016” to communicate with representatives of one Minsk enterprise. Long "tortured" guys in terms of their products, knowledge, understanding of modern technology. Impressions are very good both from representatives and from their products.

Lukashenko is in a hurry, we are now speaking for him. and are there allies in the world? this is a rhetorical question .. and the fact that they do not want to be friends for money is a cliche worn out .. as an example, China: he has a lot of money, and who are the allies? this is a natural existence .- no allies. so it’s not the way, but here’s what
            --- Belarus cannot be friends without financial injections --- this is a vital issue! the fact that the state is a freeloader is also urgent, that it cannot exist without replenishment from Russia, it is a fact .. that Luka is insolent, there’s nothing to do.
            in any "kingdom" there are always problems, so there is no need to address this issue here.
            But an economic miracle, called Lukonomika, cannot exist without subsidizing with our country, it cannot be avoided. And if so, let it have the courage to talk about it openly and not curse oneself.

      Try selling potatoes right in the field. You can even screw a 90% discount to sell better.

        We, in East Kazakhstan oblast, did just that. Farmers sold cucumbers and tomatoes from the field. Threw off twenty-five percent. People came and bought the whole crop in a week.

          We also sell fence from the field, and so to wholesale dealers, yes discounts of 25-30%, and ordinary people taking a couple of pounds - a discount of 0-5%. And should I go to the village?

            I don’t know where, but in our Gerasimovka (about 12 km from Ust-Kamenogorsk), there is one discount for everyone, no matter how much I take. He bought tomatoes there, with me an elderly woman, with about a couple kg of tomatoes, just waved his hand and wished him a pleasant appetite, they did not take money from her.

        How soon did you forget the "well-fed" life of the nineties ... And you do not remember how to sell cigarette butts in banks? If they want to eat, they themselves will come to the field. In 97-98, those who wished to purchase potatoes traveled to villages and bought cheaply.
        They are telling you now that it is necessary to lay 1200 km of pipes so that Germany "receives" Russian gas ... And once, in Soviet times, Europe itself built a gas pipeline from Urengoy:
        In July 1981, a consortium of German banks led by Deutsche Bank and AKA Ausfuhrkredit GmbH provided a loan of DM 3,4 billion for the construction of compressor stations. Later, loan agreements were signed with a group of French banks and an export-import bank of Japan. In 1981-1982, contracts for the supply of compressors and pipes were signed with Creusot-Loire, John Brown Engineering, Nuovo Pignone, AEG-Telefunken, Mannesmann, Dresser Industries, Walter Kidde and Japan Steel Works. Pipelayers and bulldozers were purchased from Caterpillar and Komatsu, Liebherr and Kato truck cranes.
        Workers from the CMEA countries (GDR, Poland, Czechoslovakia and SFRY) took part in the construction of the Urengoy-Pomary-Uzhgorod gas pipeline, many of which built the Soyuz gas pipeline in the late 1970s.

        Do you like that all this gimmick is happening against the backdrop of 60% of gasification in Russia?
        You can continue to twist brains, explaining what and how. From your words it turns out that if (Suddenly !!! wassat ) Russia decided to sell oil and gas at the border, then we would not have received those billions of profits that are just pouring on our heads every hour ...
        Thanks for the information...

Once I started talking about this, I will remember the beginning of the 90s, when my friends from the Moscow Region and the Smolensk Region carried these gurks, cartoply to Moscow. The month was good, and then in front of Moscow they were met by “Khachiks” who were forced to sell them for a penny. The next year, supplies to Moscow stopped.

      Or do you think that the cost of gas for Germany, which is less than for other EU countries, is purely economical? Schroeder decided on Ger and voila. Money was correctly distributed offshore with the right people. That’s the whole story.

          This is probably why they had never worked anywhere until they were 48 years old. At all. And he lived on the income from his mother’s estate. And for the money from armed robberies (the Bolsheviks called them exes), of course.
          Quote: ROSS 42
          and the productivity of the leaders of the socialist state

          Ulyanov had no idea that he was "the leader of a socialist state." He called his creeping armed coup a PROLETAR revolution. And he called himself the leader of the world proletariat.
          A chip with the "socialist revolution" came up with after his death, Jugashville. And it was from December 1927, after the victory of the Dzhugashvili group (then still a group) over Bronstein, that the "building of socialism" began in the USSR. And just then the proletarian revolution was renamed the socialist.
          Performance calculation, I agree. The Bolsheviks managed to rob Russia of the Russians. And the Ukrainians, Ukraine. And the Georgians, Georgia. Etc. The result, although this was a result, as subsequent history showed, was disastrous, but the Bolsheviks had it.

      The revival of the economy is just as empty a slogan as the fight against corruption, and that's all. There is a reality that Russia today is a subject of the international division of labor. You can produce anything you want, this is not a problem, the problem is to find a market for this product. The second one. What you are talking about is the reproduction of the economy of the middle of the last century. And we should talk about it, and in emotions I agree with you, about the production of a high-tech product of the 21st century with an undeveloped niche and, this is also very important, the preservation of production that ensures sovereignty and protection of existing markets. Here you can even do without avinos, just say the word "sanction". Alas, it turned out that the world markets of the USSR were not very interesting, and the young reformers who dragged us into the market were initially ready to accept the position of the Russian Federation as a European gas station.

      The most cynical and extremely openly formed by 2020 point of view of the Russian leadership on the prospects of the Union State was recently formulated by the LDPR leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky: Minsk wants gas at the price of Smolensk. Then become like Smolensk. But not one small area, but six areas. It may be a federal district - the Western Federal District. Do not want to - it's your business. No one will force you to force. But then pay like everyone else "

            It's just that in Russia, all the tidbits are already divided or sold. So they are looking for someone else to privatize and sell. Lukashenko correctly does that he fights off attempts to penetrate the Russian oligarchy.

              What is it like ? and the fact that their economy functions fully only on our energy resources and Belarus does not have these resources at all, i.e. Russia can immediately stop the entire economy of Belarus and bring it down. and if Belarus is a part of Russia, then there will be no energy problems and enterprises will work on their endless resources .. The economy of Belarus breathes only thanks to Russia.
              ------- It's just that in Russia all the tidbits are already divided or sold. So they are looking for someone else to privatize and sell .-----
              these judgments have long outgrown. for a long time, everyone knows that if there is a tidbit in Belarus, then very little! you are aware that about 70% of Belarusian enterprises own Russian business! What are you talking about? 70% of enterprises have owners from Russian business !!! tidbits are natural resources - get and sell! In Belarus, far from tidbits!

              If the Russian oligarchs would want, then Luka with an outstretched hand would go around the world, without a state. Actually, Luka exists only thanks to Russian business, or (as Luka popularizes) oligarchy.

      The fish goes bad ... This Miller has to be fired for a long time.


      Anyone can be fired, but whom to put? Again, change the awl for soap? Are there any worthy people in Miller's place? If there is, voice it.

          You know, any decent and honest person who relates to the National Treasure not as his own wallet should also be a competent specialist, because you will not go far with one decency. And no one will allow a decent person to power. There is a circle with its mercantile interests. Therefore, they can replace Miller only with the same Sechin. And alas, this does not depend on the common people.

          But in fact my question was that no one called a surname.

            Actually, it’s not Miller’s problem, but the one who’s higher. Without him there would be no miller and other gracious friends. Not Miller forms the agenda. Miller is just a cog, an integral part of those relationships (self-enrichment and irresponsibility) that have developed in this brat, called - "capitalism for their own."

              Lord ... people, will you ever understand that people like Miller or Sechin are hired employees working under a contract?) Someday at least get to know what AO and its board are and how it works. the tasks of the tops are the effective management of the company's assets and, as a result, an increase in profit for the company's shareholders. their decisions generally have nothing to do with power and all sorts of agendas. all the difference is only in the size of the companies they manage. they owe neither to you nor to me at all. unless you are a shareholder.

                  But are they obliged to report to you?) The management of the neighboring store should give you an annual report on who they appointed the director?))) Once again, the board of the joint-stock company decides who will manage it. by voting choose. and the criteria for its effectiveness are up to you. start to understand it then it will become easier. state-owned company differs from any other only one-owner. the principles of operation and management are the same. the state does not govern and cannot. it only owns. and directors are hired managers and not civil servants.

                  Because we are PEOPLE! And you would do the same! They would have planted all their relatives! We have always been and will be so. Because we are people! Our talent for singing is inherited, the talent for skiing (and indeed for sports) is inherited, etc. at least I feel very bad about it, but putting myself in their place, I would also push my relatives and friends. And you too . How then can you poke your finger on others? if he is the same as everyone ....

                    That's just not necessary for everyone! Personally, none of my relatives planted me anywhere. So do I. But this does not mean at all that there are no bosses in relatives. I know among my relatives only one case. The FSB officer added his son to the FSB and, of course, not his boss. But there it is customary. You just won’t get there from the street.

                So, the Ain moment, and you too (if you want to of course) will understand what “business” in Gazpromovsky is and where are the interests of the shareholders (source of RBC):
                Arkady Rothenberg created Stroygazmontazh (SGM) in 2008. Then he is for 8,3 bn. Rub. bought at Gazprom five construction "daughters" along with contracts: Lengazspetsstroy, Volgogradneftemash, Spetsgazremstroy, Krasnargazstroy and Volgogaz.

                We carefully monitor the hands (not mine, but the Rotenbergs). I bought from Gazprom to build future gas pipelines for Gazprom. And when that's all, further prospects for such megastrocks are not expected, then attention (source RBC):
                The sale of contractor Stroygazmontazh, owned by Arkady Rotenberg, has been closed. This was told to RBC by a source close to the company, and a source surrounded by Rotenberg, and also confirmed the representative of the businessman.
                The buyer was Gazstroyprom, the new single contractor of Gazprom, where the monopoly has 49%, and the rest is owned by Gazprombank structures and individuals, RBC interlocutors said. According to one of them, the transaction amount was about 75 billion rubles. Previously, two sources close to preparing the deal told RBC that Rotenberg had agreed to sell the contractor for about 75 billion rubles. A Gazprom spokesman declined to comment.
                Gazprom returns the assets sold. Stroygazmontazh is not the only contract business that Rotenberg bought from Gazprom and now sells to monopoly structures. Gazstroyprom also plans to buy out Gazprom Drilling, a major drilling contractor (now the company is controlled by Igor Arkady Rotenberg’s son).

                PS Are you not surprised that during the construction of gas pipelines Gazprom persistently chose the most expensive and generally low-cost projects and refused less costly options?
                I personally do not. Privatization of profits and the nationalization of losses are the win-win scheme of Putin’s oligarch friends. And try to say that Mr. P. has nothing to do with it, they just play hockey together, they just have a common hobby, you know. Shareholders say good governance, well, well. What did the Sberovsky analyst write about these construction projects there? Which was immediately fired.

                PPS Scam of the Century, that's what it is. And it’s a pity that it’s not the only, if so, question at all. hi

                  Firstly, getting rid of non-core assets is an old topic. and I do not discuss project schemes because I do not know the source data. the fact that someone is trying to make money there is a completely natural thing.

                    And could mean to have even more income and less debt. Would you like to consider such an argument? Or do you think that all the trump cards are already in your hands? And what does your argument have to do with it
                    Do you want the business to work on the principle of bees versus honey?

                    if you yourself write above
                    top tasks are effective management company assets and as a result increase profits for shareholders company. their decisions have nothing to do with power

            Moreover, a person who falls into power is metamorphic and, as a rule, not for the better. Moreover, our generation was brought up by the Soviet state in the notions that “everything is collective farm and everything is mine”, from which it follows: “bring every nail from work, you are the owner, not the guest”
            One hope remains - for youth.

        I have absolutely no good (as well as bad) feelings for Miller. But do you personally (at least a little) know him to talk about him and (as an example) Sechin? I mean, you can start a duck, and everyone starts talking, as if they knew each other. I just can’t understand this ... how can a man talk without knowing what he is talking about?

    It doesn’t matter that Russia produces oil and gas is much more important through which countries this gas and oil pass.
    Recently, it was reported that the president of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, announced multivectorness and friendship with the United States, after which he began to threaten Moscow with the rejection of Russian oil.

    And now, it became known that the “father” demanded compensation from Russia for the damage caused by the Chernobyl accident and threatened to pick up two threads of the Druzhba trunk pipeline, the Reporter writes.

    It should be noted that the Belarusian leader said all this during his recent working trip (September 6, 2019), dedicated to the celebration of the 1000th anniversary of the city of Brest. Moreover, Lukashenko is sure that it was Belarus that suffered most from the 1986 Chernobyl disaster.

    Did we build this station? Not. Did we blow it up? Not. And who suffered the most? We. Then the central government, represented by Mikhail Gorbachev, assumed responsibility for Belarus. The country fell apart. Who is the assignee? They always say - the authorities of Russia: "We are the successors of the Soviet Union." - said Lukashenko.

    But at least for this (we are not asking for money, nothing), help - 10-15 billion cubic meters of gas at affordable prices. Not for free, not at a loss to Gazprom, deliver to Belarus. After all, people have suffered. And as successors. - added Lukashenko.

        The most interesting thing is that he tells the AHL what and who needs to be sold to our country, after his words I imagine oil wells of the Republic of Belarus and gas fields, I have never seen such an outrageous impudence. The President of Belarus emphasized that Russia should sell gas to Germany more expensive than at present. “You have to sell Germany even higher, you benefit, there is a big market. And you and I, figuratively speaking, figuratively rotted in the trenches together, ”Lukashenko said.

        Recall, official Minsk believes that Russia should sell gas to Belarus at a price equal to its value for the Smolensk region. At the same time, Moscow has repeatedly stated that this approach is not correct. As Vladimir Putin noted at a large press conference, today “Smolensk belongs to a zone where subsidies are the highest.” “What we can do (in the matter of further integration in the Union State. - It’s not yet clear. Therefore, to run ahead and subsidize for Belarus what we are not ready to do now would be a mistake on the part of the unresolved issue of the union construction” - said the Russian leader.

            Here is an example and a sample:
            Oil is declared the property of the people, like all natural resources of the country. Money from oil revenues goes to social programs and the Welfare Fund. And Norway gradually began to turn into one of the richest countries in the world, where GDP per capita reaches 40 thousand dollars.
            Deductions from the oil profits earned are received on the personal account of every Norwegian. To date, these contributions amount to more than 100 000 dollars for every Norwegian. For each child, at birth, a bank account is opened, which receives at least 3 thousand dollars of income from income tax.
            Norway is a country where no one travels with guards, no flashing lights, no corruption, where night operas are staged in the royal palace in Bergen, and in summer there are performances in the streets, a king who appoints and removes ministers (there are 7 ministers and one prime minister in the government Minister) and provides a park in front of the palace for all comers, asking only to fence off a small place with transparent net for their secluded walks.

              In Norway, at the birth of a child, at least $ 3 thousand is immediately credited to his account. Before reaching adulthood, accounts are periodically replenished, which allows the Norwegians to have savings of $ 18 thousand by 100 years old. Kuwait also pays $ 3 thousand to newborns. In addition, interest-free loans are granted to citizens $ 220 thousand, each minor is paid a benefit of $ 170 per month, and non-working housewives receive $ 300 each month. The Government of Saudi Arabia transfers $ 10 thousand to each newborn, gives out $ 80 thousand for the purchase of housing free of charge and pays $ 10-15 thousand to all university graduates. The most fortunate in terms of the distribution of deductions from the sale of oil are residents of the United Arab Emirates: each newborn there is provided with an amount of $ 150 thousand.

              Free education, free hospitals and unemployment benefits - all this only at the expense of taxes. Oil money itself is tied up and isolated from the national economy - it is hidden exclusively in foreign securities. Revenues from these securities can be spent, the excess profits from the sale of oil themselves are not. Reason: Norway fears inflation.

              Explain to you what it is? The population cannot just spend this money.
              We have a similar system where all the money in excess of $ 40 per barrel goes to the “capsule”, to the same “national treasury fund” ... Your example is good, but not entirely successful. There is no paradise on earth ... everywhere this "golden calf"

The authorities here are insured both by law and by the Russian Guard. But then they have everything in order with the pension. What do you think by chance?

    And these flows go through the air directly to a specific and only consumer? And the air is also bad.

      Gave you a "raw materials appendage"! It’s great that there are resources that you can afford and you can sell. So any host does (with a crop, for example). Do not sit on a chest of gold and languish from hunger. Not so. At us it turns out with other goods, apparently hands do not grow from there, eh?

    By and large, to get out of the situation when energy transit somehow turns into the “Achilles heel" of Russia, perhaps, you can only outlive the practice of preferences for certain countries as such.

    But do not sit on the pipe and be a raw materials appendage. Sell ​​high-tech products and there will be no transit problems. request

      Firstly, such gasoline must be able to produce. Today it is bourgeois technology. Iran with huge oil reserves is not able to provide itself with gasoline. There is no question of quality at all.
      Secondly, it is easier to export oil by stretching one pipe than pulling a hundred pipes for hundreds of types of fuel and lubricants.
      Thirdly, who needs a competitor in the West?
      Fourth, you can’t get cheap gasoline.

          It will not turn out cheap because there are no technologies of their own, and strangers are expensive. Corruption, bureaucracy, and low labor productivity will also make gasoline cheap.

    Our reality - as long as the SYSTEM can satisfy all (most) of its desires, nothing will fundamentally change.
    Some figures from the system begin to act in attempts to change the situation within their competencies, but this is an exception to the rule (NOVATEK is building a plant for deep processing of natural gas), this is a drop in the ocean and the situation will not significantly change.
    There is no intensive development of our petrochemical industry, we will pump primary raw materials over the hill!
    Replacing some figures with others with the SYSTEM is not provided! She is happy with everything ....

        About a lot, such as my "native" electronics, it’s not worth talking about. There, for now, the situation is sour.
        For example, petrochemicals and related. This topic is widely heard.
        Development IS, but compared with demand and theoretical capabilities, also not yet ah! Hope this is bye!
        And so, in fact, greetings from the city of GREAT CHEMISTRY, once under the USSR. We had factories for the deep processing of primary raw materials, received a secondary product that was used throughout the union, and delivered over the hill .....
        Recently, we have built several, not large, enterprises. They produce products, people work, get paid, GOOD!
        BUT, they, for the most part, use imported raw materials, and this is not Gut, because this affects the cost / price of products.
        That's when they will use only our primary raw materials, the secondary product of our enterprises, then I will clap my hands and rejoice!

                you say that the nomenclature boasted of their wealth, but this is also not entirely true. it’s just that the media weren’t so developed, because there was no Internet, and print and TV were tightly controlled, my mother worked at the editorial office for 40 years. But in our village, I remembered that some head of the Communist Party drove his car drunk, behaved defiantly, the inhabitants of the village saw it, were indignant, but for some reason they couldn’t do anything ... Have you heard about this incident? Well, yes, of course, they did not write about him, but more from where ...
                One friend worked with me, and so he comes from Siberia. And somehow we are sitting, on TV they show forests burning in Siberia, our colleagues began to resent what kind of shitty power can do nothing, and he says that the taiga has always burned, only 30 years ago no one attached importance to it and the mass media were not developed information, and now, says, made of this event! I mean that there are nuances, trifles that we don’t notice or don’t want to notice a lot and they affect the situation. I am not for that system and not this one, but let's go back 35 years and talk to people, and remember that they spoke for the USSR ...

                  I specifically wrote that I did not initialize the period of the USSR. I just saw a lot, traveled all over the country and had to go over the hill.
                  A lot was hidden about the upper school desk and the leading elite, that’s true, there were disassemblies only among their own, BUT, they adhered to certain standards of decency and did not seek to anger the people, giving food for indignation. This cannot be considered good, but this is far from the contempt that we have to experience now!
                  At the grassroots and middle level at ANY boss you could find a council! They flew out of their seats the only way, or they even lost their school tickets ... and for them it was like a wolf’s seal.
                  About the forest and fires ... it burned, the bosses were self-governing, it’s also true, BUT, as brazenly as they are now robbing the country under the guise of large ranks, this was NOT then! And there were many more foresters, foresters ...
                  In short, any question can be answered, compared and it almost always turns out that it was HONEST then than now!

    Nothing changed. If in the zero, there was still an attempt to develop the non-resource sector, now all the major projects are pipes and LNG. Even the northern sea route is also connected precisely with the raw materials development of the Arctic.
    In the zero tried in RosNano, in Skolkovo, now the state. the device itself already realized that it was not capable of developing technology. Laying pipes is much easier, you hire a foreign company, and you live on resource rents.
    China is in no hurry to share technology, selling finished products, and Russia is sliding into a web of pipes.

        I agree, but only flies separately, and cutlets separately. Lukashenko is looking for reasons in everything, for free supplies of energy, Chernobyl now remembered. Then something else. Only the external debt of the USSR, for some reason everyone except Russia, refused to pay. Now it is fashionable - all the republics within the USSR were occupied by Russia and now it owes them. Lukashenko puts pressure on the fact that we are fraternal peoples and that’s why the Russians are obliged to give them a discount, and the Belarusians themselves, as brothers, what will they owe us ???

    It is time for some commentators to understand one thing: without raw materials, everything in the world will stop, and its reserves are not unlimited. This is the first. Secondly, remembering Marx with its "raw materials appendages", one should not forget that conditions have changed and developed countries, led by the United States, consuming the lion's share of resources from developing countries and third world countries, face an explosive problem - to share with suppliers means to reduce the consumption of raw materials, which means to reduce the bloated level of consumption of countries of the third world. Then another Marxian clause about the higher cost of processed products, which is mainly concentrated in the countries of the golden billion, is used, but since they are most interested in cheap raw materials for their beloved, blackmail and threats of force are used on their part. Hence the reluctance to raise the economy of the third world countries, the globalization of the world economy with the dominant position of the "golden billion", the preservation of NATO, huge military spending and the use of force against those who do not want to maintain their powerless position. I would like to draw attention to an interesting point: Australia, Canada, New Zealand are not industrial giants, but are part of the zone of Anglo-Saxon influence and sell raw materials with great profit, and ensure a high standard of living for their population. So you can. For those who disagree, the solution seems to be a compromise, which means concessions from the West, led by the US hegemon, but why, if force is on their side for now. Russia confuses the cards, so by their logic it should be removed as an obstacle from the road. In any way that preserves their position. And Russia with a developed economy is a direct threat to this. From here draw your own conclusions.

    The article reminded a joke, which is "what for us?" And this is all the result of a cunning plan for transforming Russia into a great energy power, then bish into a world gas station (by the way, with the success almost realized). And, as I understand it, all of these flows were conceived as a means of pressure on transit countries, but each two-edged sword. (But did anyone consider the money thrown away for all these flows. Maybe it was cheaper to negotiate with the transit countries). This gives the right to the transit countries not to be shy when possible to do the same in relation to Russia. And talking about market relations is simply ridiculous. The Russian leadership itself created the only monopolist.
    By the way, even if transit countries agree on deliveries, for example, with Kazakhstan or Turkmenistan, Russia itself will not allow this by means of tariffs for pumping through its territory, for pumping is controlled by whom? That is, in this case it will be normal and good. But if it’s the other way around, then for us it’s for sho.
    And about the sale in the field. So, after all, our dad asked for the development of some kind of field in flush. But no. Nizya. For nefig. Here it is possible for everyone, and specifically the Belarusians in FIG. And then they will become too independent.
    So now take offense and remember the quote about the allies. Geographical location is the same resource as minerals, and Russia itself is not shy about using it.

    It is necessary to switch to direct energy supply exclusively to neighboring (via land pipelines and oil pipelines) and coastal countries (using offshore pipelines and ships - gas carriers and tankers), and to score on land countries (let them agree with coastal countries on their own), since there are very few such the consumption volumes are minuscule - the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Serbia (the first three are generally taken care of by the EU, and the last is almost associated with the EU).

    After the launch of SP-2, it is necessary to completely switch to world prices (which will increase multiply due to the military conflict in the Middle East) in the field of energy supplies to Rygorich - as a sanction for the intention to nationalize the pipelines owned by Gazprom and Transneft and passing through Belarus. Plus, the termination of the import of any Belarusian and counterfeit products (such as shrimp).

    As it turned out, in reality the USSR is much more difficult to disintegrate than on paper. There is a common pipe, and you won’t get anywhere from it. In a good way, it is necessary that Belarus corporatize its pipeline system and transfer some of the shares in Russia, and Russia transfers to Belarus some percentage of the shares of mining companies. And with Ukraine, the issue of gas could also be roughly resolved. And that would be true integration. After all, the EU began with the European Coal and Steel Association.

    Gazprom pumps gas to Europe at a loss and, as usual, will cover its losses at the expense of the "domestic consumer" (this is "do not go to the grandmother"). https://finobzor.ru/88494-vmesto-pribyli-ubytki-dlya-rossii-ukrainskiy-tranzit-okazalsya-nenuzhnym.html?utm_source=topwar.ru
    Belarus, as our only real strategic ally, asks to sell it gas and oil at "Russian domestic prices", which in fact are already very close to the prices at which these raw materials are sold to Europe. I honestly don’t understand why the Russian leadership is wandering about the issue with Belarus, why doesn’t it meet, because they are going to do with it a “single state” or not? Correctly, "fatherly" says- "in a single state and energy prices should be the same" ..... or not? And he doesn’t ask too much, given that the price of energy carriers this year may collapse even more and the ease with which Russia made concessions to Ukraine, which already (and this must be honestly recognized) is Russia's hostile state and hostile forever (second "Poland") ..

    Maybe someone from those who understand the economy will tell; is it possible to invite the bourgeoisie to build their enterprises with us? Where will they use cheaper resources? That is, do not send oil and gas for nothing, but use in Russia? That output products were cheaper. Like in the Chinese scheme, with cheap labor. This is a question.

    Sanctions were introduced to create adverse conditions in the Russian Federation, due to the accession of Crimea (and not only) to the Russian Federation (the whole west believes that the Russian Federation is an offender). This is their misfortune. You know. I will tell you a little secret. I definitely understand those who are connected in the construction industry. HIILTI has a GX 120 gas pistol. So, all consumables (nails and a gas cylinder) for it are produced in Europe, but someone told the darkest one to stop importing consumables into the Russian Federation. And this gun is worth 80000 rubles. This gun now lies with many with a stone on a shelf + work has become longer. hi And why are all of course abandoned))) The main income comes from the sale of hydrocarbons, plus most of the equipment is taken abroad, the dollar in the Russian Federation is now not small. .

It is not only expensive, but without the appropriate specialists and equipment is simply impossible. And what about external debt? Therefore, all the former republics did not prevent the export of nuclear weapons to Russia, because they stupidly did not know what to do with it further, and also did not want to take responsibility in case of anything.
