Britain followed gold decided to ban the import of coal and oil from Russia

51

The UK government has already banned the import of gold from Russia from July 21. Now, oil and oil products, as well as coal and coal products, will fall under the sanctions. The British government published the relevant information on its website, indicating the specific dates for the start of the new restrictions. The ban on the import of these products applies to direct and indirect supplies, and also prohibits the provision of related technical support, financing and brokerage services.


The gold import ban will take effect on July 21, the coal import ban will take effect on August 10, 2022, and the oil import ban will take effect on December 31, 2022

- reported in the document.

Earlier, the permanent representatives of the EU member states (Britain is not included) approved the seventh package of anti-Russian sanctions, which also included a ban on the purchase of gold. According to the Federal Customs Service, in 2021 Russia exported 302 tons of gold worth $17,6 billion. Almost 90% (266 tons) was sold to the UK. Gold was also exported to Kazakhstan (8 tons), Switzerland (7,25 tons) and Germany (5,5 tons).

The share of gold exported by Russia in world production is 8,5%. After the introduction of a ban on the export of precious metal, experts predict an increase in its price on the international market in the long term, as well as the emergence of a shortage. Accordingly, if Russia finds new buyers for gold, then the situation with Western sanctions on Russian hydrocarbons may repeat itself. Due to the increased quotations, Moscow will be able to replace the loss in sales volumes and the need to discount the price.

The situation with the embargo on coal and oil is no better. In the European market, given the ongoing shortage of gas, coal has already risen in price to a historic high. At the same time, in the same UK, the EU countries are abandoning the green policy and reactivating coal-fired power plants. Thus, in Germany in the first quarter of 2022, coal accounted for 31,5% of total electricity generation. And the share of Russian coal exports to Europe is 46%.

And this is taking into account the fact that the heating season in the countries of the Old World has not yet begun. Europe's refusal of Russian coal is considered by analysts to be a strategic mistake.

    Surprisingly, while Nabiullina is driving gold to the West, the West itself is helping Russia to buy it for printed rubles, i.e. consider it a gift, and we will deliver coal to Asia.

        Jul. 21st, 2022at 12:45PM

        Early on the morning of July 10, thousands of people took to the spontaneous protest outside the branch of the People's Bank of China in the 13 millionth city of Zhengzhou (the capital of Henan province).

        What? lol

        Unfortunately, the Ministry of Finance is also actively helping the Central Bank to squander its own wealth. Ms. Nabiullina gave the go-ahead for the actual abolition of the mandatory sale of foreign exchange earnings by exporters, and through the efforts of Anton Germanovich, they were able to transfer profits to accounts in foreign banks. What is the upshot? Gold miners send bars abroad, receive Eurodollars for them and leave them in accounts there. I think it is not worth telling what this is fraught with, given the full-fledged economic war unleashed against Russia.

              Once again, slowly: Nabiullina - Chairman of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation; The Central Bank of the Russian Federation owns the gold and foreign exchange reserves of Russia; Nabiullina is driving gold from the reserves of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation to the West?

        To do this, you need to know whose gold was sold. If it’s private (yes, there is such a thing!) - then export duties and excise taxes. If it’s state-owned, then everything goes to the budget

    Vovan and Lexus got into a conversation on behalf of Ze another old senile:

    - Russians should be banned as a nation.
    - Yes! And not only that, but films should also be banned. They cannot be rented...
    – I agree and I am for the abolition of culture. I mean to cancel Russian culture. All these Russian writers are nothing compared to you.
    - I think so. I think Russian writers need to shut up!

    Earlier, back in March, Stephen King stopped cooperating with Russian publishers and forbade publishing his horror films in Russia.

    Well, let's remember. And forget forever. And at the same time we will tell him how to actually talk about Russia, about Russians and the great Russian culture through the mouth American professor John Willerton from the University of Arizona:

    “Dear, mysterious, forgotten - this is Russia. This is what many of us think of Russia, despite the fact that it is an amazing land, with great people and great culture. Today I want to take your time to share my knowledge. I ask you to join me on our little journey in order to touch the Russian soul....
    What I ask you - please untie the association about horror and evil from Russia, because this association about evil and terrible Russia is being imposed on us.
    I grew up in Columbus, Ohio. Once I went with my mother and for some reason she showed me an 8-hour Soviet film based on Leo Tolstoy's book War and Peace. This is L. Tolstoy's masterpiece. But you know, this is possibly the best work of Russian literature, but I think it is the greatest work of literary art of our civilization in general.
    I don’t know, but you probably love Dickens, some of you love Victor Hugo, you, of course, may have your own opinion, but I admire Tolstoy and what he does in this amazing novel that describes the times of Napoleon. When Napoleon invaded Russia, this book describes the most important moments of that period of life. 1400 pages. In these pages he created the whole world, one hundred main characters, six main families, problems of war, problems of peace, problems of life, problems of death, problems of God and the meaning of life....
    Now, if we look now at the map in our time - Russia is huge, it is such a giant, and next to it are small neighbors, such gnomes. But the truth is that if you go back in history for 1000 or even more years, Russia was then small, small principalities, and then Poland (the Commonwealth) was huge, as well as Sweden, as well as Germany, France, Byzantium, great Persian civilization, great China, Mongolia. They all attacked the Russians, brought pain and they were given back. And you will see the suffering that the Russians endured - this is such a burden, a pressure that made them who they are. All these things, territory, climate and neighbors that attacked constantly.
    And when I talk about suffering, I don't want you to think that Russians are some depressed, gloomy people. These are very joyful people, they are very spiritual people who value their family and friendship. But since they are a bit quiet, not very talkative, it might be difficult for people like me and you to start talking to them. And this is partly why I want to convey to you that when Russian opens up a little to you, you will understand that there is very deep, just endless depth. And I tell you: try to touch the Russian soul, try to do it through the prism of their culture, through music, through history, through their paintings. I'll tell you: I hope you decide to try to touch the Russian soul. I really advise you to go to Russia and at the end I will read you a little poem. And I am not Russian, because if I were Russian, I would not read this from a piece of paper, it would be in my head and in my heart, and I will now share this little poem so that you understand that quiet is sometimes well, and that they are very deep people, in fact, that the Russian soul is just a treasure.

    At the end of July, Gazprom will stop another unit at the Portovaya compressor station for repairs, Russian President Vladimir Putin told reporters following a working visit to Iran.
    If the repaired turbine for Nord Stream is not returned from Canada, pumping through this gas pipeline will be reduced to another 30 million cubic meters. m of gas per day, he warned.

    “Where can we get a refurbished one? Completely incomprehensible. And another machine is already out of order, because there some kind of internal lining has fallen off, which Siemens confirmed ”- said Putin.
    “Well, I had to warn that then we would withdraw half of the volume intended for Nord Stream for domestic consumption and processing. And Gazprom <...> has already done this, so even if we launch Nord Stream tomorrow - 2", it will not be 55 billion cubic meters per year, but exactly half. And if we keep in mind that only the second half of the year is left of this year, then it means one quarter [of the potential annual volume]", - the head of the Russian state emphasized.
    Putin pointed out that Gazprom has fulfilled, is fulfilling and "will fulfill its obligations in full, unless, of course, someone needs it." "If they (Europe) close everything with their own hands, and then look for the guilty, it would be funny if it weren't so sad".

    With coal, the Poles have already burned themselves
    Local residents asked the head of government why only one of the three coal warehouses is working and that one sells fuel at 2,9 thousand zlotys (about $620) per ton. Although there is a law on paying compensation to companies that will sell coal to private consumers for no more than 996 zlotys (about $ 210) per ton, which was signed by Polish President Andrzej Duda ... “State-owned companies were asked to order this coal from Colombia, Indonesia, around the world . So that ships with coal sail to Poland,” the prime minister added. According to his forecasts, with the availability of coal, Poland will have "a lot of problems in the coming weeks, months." https://iz.ru/1366145/2022-07-17/premer-polshi-moravetckii-priznal-nalichie-problem-s-postavkami-uglia

    The news is great! Now one of the most pressing problems is our supply of resources to the West. In addition to the fact that these countries are at war with us, they also do not pay for these deliveries.
    Given the fact that a significant group in our management elite is going to continue to drive resources there under any circumstances, such decisions by Western countries are in our favor. Thanks Brits! Our helpers...
    But to Nabibulina, Siluyanov, Muller, Navak, others, and the corporate groups they represent, I sincerely wish you to think about this situation. You drive resources there for FREE, and you are kicked out from there. How much can you be humiliated?
