Lithuania has demonstrated complete dependence of the Baltic energy sector on Russia

78

The nervous reaction of Vilnius, which is close to panic, to the blocking of the transit of Russian gas through the territory of Lithuania to the Kaliningrad region has clearly shown that all statements by Baltic politicians about their desire for energy independence from Moscow are worthless. But gas pumping was stopped for only a few hours. Thus, Lithuania has demonstrated the complete dependence of the Baltic energy sector on Russia.


Former head of the Latvian Ministry of Economy Ralph Nemiro discussed the importance of the Russian factor in the energy sector of the Baltic countries in an interview for the Lithuanian magazine Open City.

The former minister criticizes the project to build an LNG terminal in Skulte in Latvia. He reads that there is no need to build such an object for the state directly bordering on the Russian Federation. After all, it will be able to stay afloat only if it is subsidized by the state, otherwise it will not win the competition with a pipe from Russia. And even if it works, then, with a high degree of probability, gas to the terminal will not come from Norway, the USA or Qatar, but from the same Leningrad region of Russia. After all, you can't get away from geography and common sense.

Lithuania has demonstrated complete dependence of the Baltic energy sector on Russia

And although Nemiro does not mention Lithuania, his forecast of the future Latvian terminal in Skulte fully coincides with the description of what has already happened with a similar terminal, Independence. Before Vilnius decided to rent it, they talked a lot about energy independence from the Kremlin, but in the end they stopped at LNG supplies from Russia.

Thus, the dependence of the Baltic energy sector on Russia does not disappear anywhere, but simply takes on other, more bizarre forms.

    It is time for Russia to think about what we ourselves will be heating our homes with in 30 years.

    But such Russophobes like the Baltic countries and Poland should have been disconnected from all energy sources for a long time and making money with the help of Russia.

    The Baltic states and Poland have been pouring mud at us for 30 years, and we still pump gas, oil and other cargo through them.

    Everything that is not beneficial for us should be stopped. For a long time, it was necessary to carry goods through their ports and on their own roads, and not to feed those who do not understand at their own expense.

    Calm down, dependence on energy systems and resources of Russia is long gone.
    If we completely stop buying oil and gas from Russia, of course, there will be a slight increase in prices for heating and fuel, maybe by 10, maybe 20%, for electricity to a minimum. Well, I would pay 20 euros more for heating ... I see no problem.

      They don't want to understand. Maybe because the hardest thing is to accept the truth for yourself. After all, we were a great country, a huge Soviet empire. We were reckoned with, we were feared and respected. In an instant, everything changed, the country began to be ruled by those who systematically and destroyed it, in order to be able to turn it into a raw material appendage. for their own enrichment. I really believe that this was the main message of the death of a great empire. But the ambitions and habits of the titular nation remained, there is no escape from them, so they believe the media ravings about the leading role, etc. I repeat once again, they do not want and cannot accept the terrible truth, but acceptance and awareness is already a path to change.

    The stupidity of the leadership of this small country is surprising. But nevertheless, the people vote for such "politicians" which means that the people are happy with everything and everyone is happy. This is instructive for us in the "they are brothers" part.

    Thus, the dependence of the Baltic energy sector on Russia does not disappear anywhere, but simply takes on other, more bizarre forms.

    More like a clan battle. At the moment, the clan of LNG lovers won. Whose gas will be there is not important, the money has been cut

    After all, you can't get away from geography and common sense.
    But, damn it, from year to year the number of those striving, quite consciously, to "get away" somewhere is steadily growing. fellow
    Moreover, very diverse manifestations are observed: from the sect of "flat-earthers" to those suffering from gretinism (from the word Greta) wassat

    It has long been necessary for these tribals to block everything they can and let them bark.

    Of course, we must move away from this "electrical dependence" on Russia. At first, you can use rechargeable flashlights, and when there is nowhere to charge them and nothing, switch to candles, kerosene or oil lamps. When there is nothing to refuel the latter, it will be possible to light the torches. Yes, gentlemen, you have to endure. First time. And then the habit will return to normal.

    The former minister criticizes the project to build an LNG terminal in Skulte in Latvia. He reads that there is no need to build such an object for the state directly bordering on the Russian Federation. After all, it will be able to stay afloat only if it is subsidized by the state, otherwise it will not win the competition with a pipe from Russia. And even if it works, then, with a high degree of probability, gas to the terminal will not come from Norway, the USA or Qatar, but from the same Leningrad region of Russia. After all, you can't get away from geography and common sense.


    Common sense in the Baltic countries, Poland and Ukraine is something very, very vague. Most often, these countries act according to the principle: "I will buy a ticket for the conductor, and I myself will go on foot."

    At least one person understood that it is better to live peacefully with a neighbor.

    They don’t understand anything.

    Why are the Spaniards (just now) teaching Europe how to educate Russia? Is it with fat? Such, fucking "Balts", only on the edge of the European cliff. laughing

    I lived in the Baltics for quite a long time, communicated with both Estonians and Latvians, but somehow I did better with Lithuanians.
    Maybe this is my subjective opinion.
    Lithuanians have delicious milk (like Belarusian, but tastier), homemade sausages are delicious.
    There is something to see - Trakai Castle.
    If it were not for the bad government of Lithuania, we would live in mutual peace and prosperity.

    Friendship with Russia threatens the state ideology of Lithuania, so the economy and common sense are fading into the background!
