“They are playing a show”: The Chinese press is ironic about Washington’s attempts to convince the EU to abandon energy from Russia

63

In order to convince the Europeans not to buy energy resources in Russia, the United States is playing a "dramatic performance" in front of them. But if the European Union follows the example of the United States and refuses oil and gas, its financial losses will be much higher than the American ones.


The author of an article in the Chinese newspaper Huanqiu Shibao discusses this topic.

The Chinese press is ironic about Washington's attempts to convince the EU countries to abandon energy resources from the Russian Federation, because the Americans demand much greater sacrifices than they bring themselves.

At first glance, it may seem that the United States is sacrificing a lot by refusing coal, oil and gas from Russia, but the volume of Russian energy supplies to the United States is much less than to Europe. And abandoning them will hit the European economy much harder than the American one. After all, if the United States buys Russian LNG irregularly, and the share of oil from the Russian Federation in Washington's total imports is about eight percent, then Europe receives from Russia, as the Chinese edition notes, 45 percent of natural gas and most of the oil.

But on the other hand, if only America declares a "boycott" of raw materials from the Russian Federation, this will be felt much weaker in Russia than the cessation of its supply to the EU states.

Arguing on this topic, the American economist Jeffrey Sachs, in an interview for the German magazine Der Spiegel, doubted the effectiveness of Western sanctions against the Russian Federation. In his opinion, their negative effect will be felt to a greater extent in Europe and the United States than in Russia, especially against the backdrop of attempts by Brussels and the United States to restore the economy after the fall due to the pandemic.

      It seems to me that, in general, this is a completely planned campaign against the EU, and as someone said in Solovyov's program yesterday, in the end, not only Ukraine will have to be liberated, but also the corpse of Europe and America will be divided.

          The point is not to divide, and we are not hunters, the point is that America's plans go much further than they see from the surface, Apparently they want to do maximum damage to us and Europe to the extent of subjugating Europe to the extent of unconditional slaves, so that thoughts would not move America's will. Well, clearly economic tasks are at the head, America intends to get out of the crisis solely at the expense of vassals.

            Everything is correct. Only America needed to do this at least 15-20 years ago, and even in the 90s. When she was the undisputed leader. And now - oh, it's hard ...

              According to the forecasts of British economists, the thugs intend to "shod" European burghers for a trillion dollars! The food supply is shrinking. Russia stubbornly refuses to become a sacrificial lamb. Therefore, they will "gobble up" Europe, for starters. It is not for nothing that Great Britain left the European collective farm.

                Few. A trillion is nonsense, it will not save America.

                In this regard, I do not understand why America itself is doing EVERYTHING to undermine the authority of the dollar - the basis of its prosperity and power. Did our own, American, "Chubais" and "Gaidars" come there?
                Since its discovery, America has not yet created products for the amount of its national debt, has not earned so much. So why are they doing everything possible so that even the Fed with its "magic machine" cannot save America?

                I do not understand...

            The point, apparently, is to destroy the existing global financial system with the cancellation of all total debts, which cannot be repaid, after which the world will enter an era - no one, no one, owes anything, but that someone flew with a return debts, the pandemic, the war in Ukraine and the global crisis are to blame. The main beneficiary of this murky combination is the US with 30 trillion debt.

They have been trying to weaken Europe for a long time and now they will inflict a great blow on it. Well, they themselves will buy our heavy oil through intermediaries. Our trade turnover with the states and Britons is not that great. When something is needed, sanctions are fine. But Europe will get it.

          China has refused to supply Russian airlines with spare parts for aircraft, Valery Kudinov, head of the airworthiness department of Rosaviatsia, said on the sidelines of the MRO Russia & CIS conference.

          Speaking about the problems with the supply of spare parts, Kudinov said: “As far as I know, they turned to China. They refused. We will search through other countries"

          This is an unofficial statement by a person who is not authorized to make such statements.

          The statements of the head of the department for maintaining the airworthiness of aircraft of the Federal Air Transport Agency Valery Kudinov do not correspond to reality, the department pointed out.

    But if the European Union follows the example of the United States and abandons oil and gas, its financial losses will be much higher than the American ones.

    That would really come to this. It would be a good lesson. Americans cannot be helped by anything - they are degenerates, and at the same time well-to-do. But in Europe, high prices may well set the brain back. Perhaps progressive political views on foreign policy will even begin to dominate there. After all, it does not happen that absolutely everyone is stupid sheep without reasonable plans for the future, based primarily on the principle of cooperation and similarity of interests.

      The beneficiaries are most likely American financial clans .. Quite possibly Jewish. This is what the Israeli Prime Minister's flights to Moscow (on Shabbat) say. Phrase GDP-We will provide evidence when the world is ready to listen to us !!! About bacteriological weapons. And the presence of an Israeli laboratory on Snake Island speaks of hard days for the financial "Elite" of the planet ... I'm afraid they will soon become a "handshake".

      Russia is recovering.

      A strange idea of ​​recovery. In the convalescent ward in the next bed, Venezuela, I presume?

    The Chinese press is ironic and the EU continues to impose sanctions, and only the United States from all sides wins.

    especially against the backdrop of attempts by Brussels and the United States to restore the economy after the fall due to the pandemic.

    Well, this was the calculation - the West would not shoot itself in the leg paralyzed by the pandemic, get off with formal sanctions to save face, as it did before, and give Russia carte blanche for the "final decision". You can’t refuse Putin’s logic - Ukraine really isn’t worth stopping the rehabilitation of economies after covid .. Therefore, he took threats against him as a bluff. It turned out to be in vain. Now who will be blown away earlier. We need a compromise.

    The call from the United States is understandable, since there are good plastic surgeons there (they will sew new ears on everyone).
