Russian Foreign Ministry: Russian gas price ceiling will result in serious economic problems for the EU

Ambassador-at-Large of the Russian Foreign Ministry Yuri Sentyurin said that the EU's plans to set a price ceiling for Russian gas would inevitably lead to a breakdown in market ties in the energy sector, which have been built for decades. As the country's Foreign Ministry added, for Europe itself this will result in serious economic problems.


All the measures of the European Union aimed at curbing the prices of Russian gas can by no means be called market-based. All this leads to the degradation of markets, which is contrary to all norms of international law.

Senturin emphasized.

At the same time, as conveys RIA News, the diplomat noted that the destabilization of the markets not only creates uncertainties in terms of energy, but also damages trade and economic relations based on good commercial practice.

The containment of prices for Russian natural gas will be a key topic today at a meeting of EU energy ministers. The mechanism developed last month by the European Commission to make adjustments in the gas market in order to "prevent" the increase in its cost is possible only if the settlement price of the monthly futures on the TTF index exceeds 275 euros per MWh for 14 days (more than 2,8, EUR 1000 per 58 cubic meters), while the spread between the TTF price and the global LNG price must be at least EUR 10 for 275 consecutive trading days. The tool provides for the termination of all transactions when the allowable price value of XNUMX euros is exceeded.

The energy ministers of the EU countries have not been able to come to a consensus on setting a price limit for blue fuel from the Russian Federation. The proposal of the Czech Republic to reduce this limit to 220 euros, and the spread to LNG to 35 euros, did not find support among the rest of the EU countries.

Recall that Russian President Vladimir Putin has repeatedly pointed to the consequences of price restrictions on Russian energy resources, saying that in this case Moscow reserves the right to stop any fuel supplies that would run counter to the country's own national interests.

To date, the price of gas on European exchanges has dropped to $1180 per 1000 cubic meters. The fall in prices is associated with problems in the European industry, which tried to stock up on the necessary volumes of energy carriers in advance, and is now facing problems in marketing products due to a significant decline in its competitiveness.

      Hey Europe!!! Here we will bend, at the other end of the country we will break it down ... If not by spring, then by next autumn you will be bent. But at least we have cheaper gas at gas stations.

        It is high time for Russia to introduce a floor (minimum price) for Russian gas at $1500 per 1000 cubic meters. Don't want to take? Let the market look like cheaper look.
        And what about the terrorist attack on the Nord Streams? Everything? Has history gone silent? Who blew up the gas pipelines? At first they said that Russia had blown up its gas pipelines. Then why doesn't the Russian Federation blow up the Norwegian gas pipelines? Like Petrov and Bashirov on vacation?

      Yes? But what about the creation of a gas hub in Turkey? An intermediary will simply appear. And he will make good money on this

        Buy, conditionally, at 100, and sell at 50, while the EU imposes a ceiling on the price.

        That's for sure! It was bad for them when they paid 40-60 dollars for 1000 dollars for gas, now it has become so good that they don’t even know how to keep prices. And how they all tried to bring Russia to the market! laughing

    . Come on ... they did it so that the general "fun" would come.
    Also, they left a loophole for their own, as always.

    for Europe itself, this will result in serious economic problems.

    Maybe stop dreaming about the collapse of geyropa? You need to think about your problems and solve them. The rate of "wooden" has been at its peak for the third week already ....

    An American top manager will get rich by deploying LNG tankers in Southeast Asia when the price of gas exceeds the price of gas in the EU + transportation. Yes, and we will have a gesheft. Novotek has 15 gas carriers, only new construction ..

        By the way, only now three southern governors are worried that grain export traders have foreign capital in their structure. 50 million tons of grain are being exported. shake up all these traders and their connections.

          On the Kuban roads, it often happens that they don’t push through because of the crawling "hamsters" - grain trucks .. And this all goes by no means to our enterprises

    Air shaking, as with decision-making centers, it would be better if they were silent, not like Ukrainians. Finally, they will squeeze our raw materials producers who do not produce anything, we will last a couple of years and then the collapse will be due to underfunding, well, there is no way to force out freeloaders with shopping centers.

    Can anyone tell me what is going on with oil supplies to countries with a price ceiling? They said there would be no deliveries. There will be a presidential decree. Can't hear anything?...

    All this leads to the degradation of markets, which is contrary to all norms of international law.

    Logistic chains, "buying and selling" are built for decades, and are torn in weeks. Everything is like in the "collective farm market", if the buyer is dishonest and a charlatan, then the seller breaks trade relations with him, once and for all. And all the other buyers see the dishonest buyer through and through, as if through glass, and try not to get involved with such people.
    Having broken with Russia, Europe will have to look for another "bazaar" convenient for them, and Russia will find other buyers by this time. Yes, and to return the previous trade relations and logistics is not so simple, but very expensive, it is not to trade watermelons in the market.

    The main thing is not to sell anything to enemies at all! But our oligarchs are ready for anything for the sake of money, for them blood is like water. Yes, there was no such crap under Stalin!

    I would be very happy if this brings the EU serious economic problems.
    And therefore a boomerang to the Nazi regime in Kyiv.
    I think it would please not only me alone.
