European officials agreed to exclude Russian gas from joint purchases

The energy ministers of the European Union countries have reached an agreement on Russian gas. This time, the agreement concerns the exclusion of Russian "blue fuel" from joint purchases.


The relevant document was distributed following the meeting held in Brussels.

The document says that the European Union will acquire 15% of the gas to fill underground storage facilities in 2023 through the mechanism of those same joint purchases. In absolute terms, this is about 13,5 billion cubic meters.

At the same time, the European officials themselves are not ready to unequivocally answer the question of what is generally meant by the term “Russian gas” now. Often, the same United States, when buying LNG from Russia, resells it on the world market under the guise of its own, and often to the Europeans themselves - with impressive price mark-ups. Will European officials create an additional apparatus that will monitor the “transformation” of Russian gas into gas of “another jurisdiction” so as not to suddenly buy Russian raw materials in the format of the joint purchases under consideration ... And if the apparatus is created, will the Europeans be able to make claims on this? about the same USA? ..

Recall that on the eve of the EU "expressed concern" in connection with the gas contract, which was signed between Russia and Azerbaijan. Europeans, you see, were not satisfied with Baku's explanations that due to the growth of Azerbaijani gas supplies to the world market, the country is in dire need of its own energy security, which is solved, among other things, through the supply of raw materials from the Russian Federation.

Joint purchases in the European Union involve the option of common use of the purchased goods. It is believed that the EU countries will be able to share gas purchased under such a scheme with each other at those moments when any of them needs fuel most urgently.

      The EU is turning into communism, the main feature of which is that everyone works hard, but gets what they need, the distribution system has outlived its usefulness, and they jump on the same rake. What a play on words "we will not buy from Russia", well, buying through intermediaries or on the spot does not mean that the gas is not Russian, otherwise NO. In general, we are looking at the struggle of spiders in a European bank, especially those who will not get gas and they will come to Moscow to negotiate in a fierce winter smile

        When Lomehuses appear in the anthill, this anthill gradually degrades and dies. The politicians of the European Union are the same Lomekhuzes introduced by the Americans.

      Here's just for thought: ports and their nearby territories in the United States are littered with empty shipping containers. Do you know why? Because there is nothing to bring from the USA. And it is unprofitable to take out empty ones. So where do they get cheap American goods from?

    They have grown wiser to such an extent that they themselves do not understand what and why they took it. Well, they will buy gas from a third country, which was bought by this country from Russia, but will no longer be considered Russian, because. bought by them from another country. For them, the main thing is that the word Russian should not sound. Let's wait and see what it will result in and how they will feel in the future.

      The sly-assed Europeans have put themselves on the awl with their sanctions ... now you can’t make a splash without gas from Russia, as it has been for thirty years in a row since the time of Gorbach ... you will have to stop your industry ... the fat times are over.

    But the Americans muddied well, Europe is getting poorer, England has dumped, they will agree with China because logistics and, in general, dependence on their consumer goods, Russia has a lot of problems and for a long time. You can live happily for another 10-30 years, and if during this time either the Russian Federation against China or China against the Russian Federation will succeed, then it’s generally beautiful.

    Euro figures, not of this world ... or rather, not from the one that supports and feeds them. FUNNY.

    One conclusion suggests itself, the so-called "leaders" of the EU, very quickly need an ambulance, psychiatric! Washington, put a noose around their neck, and now they are considering WHO will knock the stool out from under their feet, they themselves have not yet decided, although Zelya, the drug addict, is ready at least now! But still, I wonder if this "Ukroführer" saw a photo of the execution in 1946, traitors and fascists! This is a very good reminder for him!
