With the introduction of an embargo on oil supplies by sea from Russia, the EU leaves Bulgaria as a "fallback option"

From today, a ban on the import of Russian oil to the EU countries by sea began to operate. At the same time, European experts themselves call this embargo "strange." What is the reason for this rating?


The fact is that the embargo, which has been imposed on “tanker” oil since December 5, 2022, does not apply to all EU countries. So, Bulgaria managed to achieve exceptions for itself. In her regard, the introduction of a ban on the purchase of Russian oil has been postponed until the end of 2024.

However, according to experts, this was done not at all because Brussels suddenly became preoccupied with the possible problems of Bulgaria (and its neighboring Hungary) in the event of a “tanker embargo”, but so that the entire European Union would have the option of purchasing oil from the Russian Federation by sea. The option with the "Bulgarian corridor" for tanker transportation of oil by Russia was decided to be left in case of possible problems with pumping oil through pipelines. Apparently, Europe understands that anything can happen in modern conditions, especially if we take into account the passage of main pipelines through the territory of Ukraine.

Thus, the European Union leaves Bulgaria as a "fallback".

From today, the so-called price ceiling for Russian oil, introduced by the EU, the G60 countries and Australia, began to operate. The collective West agreed on a price of $XNUMX per barrel of Russian oil, and Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Alexander Novak again repeated the words that Russia would not supply oil to countries “setting ceilings”.

In this regard, Ukrainian experts say that the first country that will lose economically from the introduction of a "price ceiling" will be Ukraine. It is expected that prices for gasoline in Ukraine may rise significantly, with sufficient volumes of which there are already serious problems in this country.

    They left a "window" for Russian oil, for "rich" Europe. I wonder what our suppliers will do, like Novak said or ...????

      I wonder how, according to the agreements, who will pay for oil if the pipe accidentally “bangs” in the EU or in some kind of Ukraine?

        It doesn't bang by accident. Nord Stream was blown up when UGS was reminded to the brim. Likewise with oil. First they will find a replacement and then they will rush.

          Perhaps you are right, but fullness is not equal to a constant inflow ... Therefore, this does not play into the short-term or long-term forecast. This is beneficial only to the United States or to traders who were aware of

      Well, I think that ours will stop deliveries to countries that will start downloading rights at a price, but only if we are talking about tankers .. they will drive further through the pipe ... and tankers will go to Bulgaria

        But at what prices? The prices of "long-term contracts" at a loss to their people, just to trade for candy wrappers?! Wasn't it necessary to spit on their paper money, namely, to demand technology and technological products in response to sanctions?

      The Italians have seized an oil refinery in Sicily from Lukoil, but this company will continue to supply its oil to this enterprise as if nothing had happened. Here is such a paradox. Nothing will stop these bastards.

    Well, now let's see how this embargo will work in practice. what
    Everything is smooth on paper ... it either has oil or it doesn’t exist, and a car in the USA and the EU, no matter where it is produced ... you can’t go anywhere without it.

    so that for the entire European Union there remains the option of acquiring oil from the Russian Federation by sea
    The Americans have adopted the experience. Those who impose sanctions always leave a loophole for themselves. But if Bulgaria has signed up to the price ceiling for Russian oil, then there will be no supplies from Russia. You will have to buy through third countries and not at the price set by the EU. This is how you need to be "smart and far-sighted" in the EU in order to create difficulties for yourself, which you then try to overcome.

    For the first time in the history of Bulgaria, she was given at least some significant role. I just dread to imagine to what extent the ego of this political microbe will be inflated. But the news from the fields (Bulgarian) will now be very interesting to read, and watching Bulgaria, which has never decided anything, will bend the European Union - funny and not for long bully

      Everything is simpler there, in Bulgaria there is a very large oil refinery of Lukoil. If he is stopped, serious problems will begin in Bulgaria.

      Hello. Indeed, it is very interesting to know whether those measures will be taken in relation to the EU countries, which A. Novak has repeatedly stated?

    Option with the "Bulgarian corridor" for tanker transportation of oil

    And what will the unloading of oil in Bulgaria give to other EEC countries?
    Are there oil pipelines for pumping to the same Poland or Germany?

          Maybe even in cups, but most countries in the world use railways to transport oil and petroleum products. Even in our country, not a small share in transportation is used by railway. Yes - more expensive, but if necessary, it is a completely working option in the face of its shortage. The Turks are out, even by cars they did the oil business in Syria and nothing, they didn’t crumble, they still carry it for sure.

    An interesting conflict, its nature is simply parasitic!
    We supply oil and gas to the EU, and they are openly fighting on the side of Ukraine. I would suggest for such countries to increase the price by 20 percent of the world turnover. If you don’t want, don’t buy

    Tea: EU left Ukraine as a "fallback option". In general, if the EU is a "partner", then oil exports to it must be completely stopped by federal law. Patamushta is a war to destroy the economy.

    In a good way, Russia should have said: "You always rely on a collective unanimous opinion when making decisions - in this case, you have exactly the same single collective responsibility for the decisions made." And not to carry any oil to any Bulgaria. And forbid third countries to be independent traders and carry Russian oil to the EU under the guise of "non-Russian". And, as correctly written above, to ban not by verbal instruction, but through the Federal Law, with prescribed severe punishment for its violation!
    That's when they would really get hysterical in Europe ...
    But with our oil tycoons-hucksters worrying only about the thickness of their wallets - I don’t believe in this option one iota!

    Then we just have to wait for the news...
    Will it be fundamental NOT to supply oil by sea from Russia to the countries included in the number of fixing the ceiling, or will non-principled deliveries begin?

    Without Russian oil in Bulgaria, the cost of shells for the APU from Bulgaria will be too high. Termination of deliveries of nuclear fuel, gas and oil to Bulgaria is equivalent to the use of 500 calibers in the energy system of Ukraine.
