With a new formula for paying for gas, Russia suppresses robbery from the West

42

Since the beginning of April, Russia has reformatted the payment for its gas in such a way that now Western friends have lost the opportunity to steal the money earned by the Russian Federation for this gas. This is the very surge of emotions that the West has been distinguished for in the past few days. He, this same West, is fundamentally not interested in what and how to pay for Russian energy carriers, he is interested in the fact that he is deprived of the mechanism of theft - the basis of his civilizational essence - when robbery is considered normal.


You can, of course, say that we are slandering "honest" Western "friends". But no. It is enough to read what former US Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul wrote about - the one who called the Russians "wild people". McFaul bluntly stated that Russia "should continue to supply gas and oil to Europe, while Europe must freeze the funds that should be paid to Russia in bank accounts." Here it is - proof that Russia was robbed and were going to be robbed further. But no matter how much the rope twists ... The end of this has come.

Now everything is simple: if the West does not want to slide into the economy of the 19th century, then Russia is ready to help with its gas, but not for free. There is no simp. Buy gas - pay for it in your euros through an account opened with a Russian bank, and with mandatory conversion into the Russian ruble. If you want - please, if you don't want - also please. Russia does not oblige or force anyone to anything in this regard.

Mikhail Leontiev's thoughts on the gas payment formula in the Odnako program on Channel One.

      Until winter they will play win. There is also wood and firewood. You can burn with manure. To come up with new clothes for the whole of Europe so as not to drown at all and for the winter to smear fat on their faces like Chukchi. And this is not for rubles, it’s just that the center for storing and controlling finances in Russia will be squealing those whom the owner keeps on subsidies, otherwise it’s completely a khan.

      "Putin's snow" covered Europe in April. Yes, they did, no joke.
      Gas extraction from storage facilities continues, it is less than 25% there.
      We observe erratic body movements and gestures, listen to almost profanity. We wait...

      As for the substitution of Russian gas, all suppliers have already clearly told them. There is no easy way out.

      But there is one more point: all LNG terminals are located in known places, these locations are "calibrated" to zero in minutes. Hot and loud. Therefore, in this aspect, there is no hiding from us, Russia has a golden share in European gas.
      Let them ask their galloping proteges - they have already become acquainted with this phenomenon!

      There is no need to repeat nonsense, even after the president. Western buyers for gas come with EURO. And only here the euro is exchanged for rubles, and they went to pay.
      That's just why this payment was not used 10-15 years ago, it is not clear ???. Funds should work in our economy, and not lie in dead weight in mysterious banks, wait until they are arrested.

    We hoped that it would be spring, it would be warm, but then it got colder! Again they will say "General Moroz is helping the Russians!" Well, this is for the civilian population. But how is the production? So far, not everyone has terminals for American LNG. Until they build it, many enterprises will close. Will they open later? jump, jump, gentlemen Europeans! Ukrainians will definitely teach you this. Here you get warm!

    Leontiev has been working at the GP for ten years already. And it worked out well.
    But he does not finish talking only about the fact that the GP deprived huge flows of currency for essentially national gas (subsoil and everything that is in them ...). Now they will get used to living for rubles.

    In the 30s of the 20th century, the United States said - we sell our goods only for dollars and buy for dollars. As a result, all countries trading with the United States were FORCED to keep the dollar in reserves, or to buy it. So the dollar became the same commodity as jeans. hi

    Why does Gazprombank have to convert Euros into rubles? Why can't EU banks buy rubles through brokers and pay for gas supplies with them? Oh yes, I forgot - Gazprom has its own interests laughing

      If they buy exactly as many rubles as a certain amount of gas costs, then nothing will change. Probably, the calculation is based on the fact that Western countries will accumulate reserves of rubles in their own country, just like we create reserves from their currencies, but this is completely, very unlikely, but in general, how can we continue to supply them with what they took away, they already took everything they could!!

        Why do they have to keep the ruble. They both paid in euros and will continue to pay. If we were obliged to make a ruble payment between their bank and ours, then yes, they would need to look for ruble liquidity somewhere. And the ruble the next day after the introduction of this scheme would become convertible. But whether it is beneficial to our government is a very big question. Most likely no. How will the budget be managed? Now, any deficit can be driven off simply by playing chicken.

      Why

      Yes, in essence, the question has already been answered - in this case, they (adversaries) automatically lose the ability to block our foreign accounts. Part of the sanctions, under these conditions, is a "bubble" in a puddle.

        the ability to block our foreign accounts disappears
        Doesn't disappear. Correspondent accounts of Gazprombank will still remain in foreign banks. And these accounts are blocked in two accounts (sorry for the tautology).

        There is no point in "selling for rubles" (according to the current scheme). Well, except for the television jingoism.

    I do not understand the meaning of enthusiastic comments.
    After several wonderful days experienced by an abundance of articles and even more abundant comments about the miracle ruble and "everything will be different," it turned out that only the account number for transferring their currency has changed for the buyer. Everything.
    Whether this currency will be converted, handed over, glued toilets, ritually burned as a sign of contempt - these are purely our local amusements. It doesn't concern them.
    Probably all other products, after significant prefaces and throwing caps, will be sold in the same way.

    The idea is good, but the execution. The Baltics are a trifle. But with the rest in Gazprom they can pull until the end of the special operation.

      1 if you first sell rubles for euros and then gas for rubles, then for any euro they remain with the seller of gas, that is, it continues to accumulate, this is a task for primary classes.
      2 in order to play on the exchange rate differences of the ruble against the euro when selling gas, you need to abandon the price in euros previously prescribed in the contract and set a new one in rubles based on the purchasing power of currencies, will they go for it,

    It is clear to anyone who understands that this scheme excludes nothing. Rather PR ruble. Anyone who accepts euros in exchange for rubles runs the risk of losing them in the account. Gazprom Bank receives euros to the account (digits in the computer), gives them ruble numbers. They change these ruble numbers for gas, which you can’t take away in any way. But euro numbers can always be stolen. In this scheme, we need barter for the physical things we need (physical currency, goods).
