Volumes of deliveries of Russian fertilizers to Germany reached a record high

Consumers from Germany have significantly increased their purchases of Russian fertilizers. In the first half of 2023, Russian fertilizer deliveries to Germany reached a record high.

This is evidenced by the data of the statistical office of Germany.

Now German consumers have purchased products worth $151 million from Russian suppliers. In monetary terms, the growth in purchases exceeded the average for the previous five years by 3,3 times. That is, the average figure for the last "five years" was 45,5 million dollars. Until this year, 2016 was considered a record year. At that time, German companies purchased fertilizers from Russians for a little over $105 million.

The Germans have not bought so many Russian fertilizers, at least since 2008. No earlier statistics are available.

If we consider in absolute terms, then in terms of tonnage in the first half of the year, Germany received 2,8 times more fertilizer from Russia than the average for the previous five years. Now this figure is 361,5 thousand tons of products. Since 2008, more have been purchased only once - in 2016. Then Germany received 395 thousand tons of fertilizers.


Data on product purchases were taken for the period from January to June inclusive.

They indicate that the dependence of the European economy on products and raw materials from Russia, despite the restrictions, is not decreasing. A particularly acute need in Europe is experienced in Russian energy resources.

        They are "Leopards" to the Nazis, and we give them fertilizers, they give them Khokhlomaniac IRIS-T, and we give them LNG. laughing Probably, this is our "grandmaster", luring the adversary into the "cauldron". laughing

      "Cheap" energy resources will make Germany an environmentally friendly country, free from any production, only windmills and solar panels for the needs of the population. Dreams Come True. I wish cows didn't fart, but they'll figure it out, soon they'll only fart pure hydrogen.

      Didn't want to buy gas? Well, now buy fertilizers made from this gas! You can do even dumber - buy agricultural products. Or even - even dumber - buy ready-made products. Further on the money it turns out that it is more profitable to move to the Russian Federation. IT people and pensioners from Germany began to visit the same Koenigsberg much more often (that's what they call it now), especially in winter, when it's cold / neighs \ :)

          Well, there were explanations from some people close to the leader, such as Peskov or Speaker Volodin.
          As long as it (oil, gas, diamonds, metals, etc.) lies in the ground, it is, of course, the people’s. Because according to the constitution, the mineral resources belong to the people.
          But as soon as it is extracted from there, it is already the property of the one who extracted it, for it ceases to be subsoil, but becomes completely a commodity/product.

      And not only in Germany! Belgium bought liquefied natural gas in large volumes, the US bought uranium, fuel oil, oil, metals, England fuel oil, and so on and so forth. These Western ragamuffins are too accustomed to living at our expense and are even ready to give up their principles for the sake of the ringing of coins in their pockets... I'm not at all surprised by such an approach. The crest will be written off and everything will go on as usual ...

          But we have put the most "worthy" of these ragamuffins into the boards of directors of our largest state-owned companies with good shares of shares in them. Apparently in the hope that they will provide our companies with "most favored nation treatment" in their markets. And what did they have from 10 to 20 years? As for gas, they lost in European courts to Poland and Ukraine. Where did these "ragamuffins" from the boards of directors look? It comes out of them to sense 0.

      Interesting - they sold it, but received the money under the contracts. Or money will be but then. And if they sold, was there an extra charge as an unfriendly country or discounts and only discounts? And the fact that fertilizers can be used to make explosives and other "funny" components for waging war with Ukrainians?

      Now German consumers have purchased products from Russian suppliers for 151 million.


      quite recently it turned out that friendly India bought oil from us in 22 for rupees - which cannot be exchanged and there is nothing to buy ...
      according to the grain deal, Rosselkhozbank - they didn’t connect to SWIFT ... that means they won’t get to the Russian Federation!
      I would like to ask a question: where will these 151 million dollars "go"?
      to strengthen the defense capability of the outskirts?

        Dedok is not tired of spreading Bloomber’s rubbish, you don’t seem to be familiar with oil production at all. The government has no oil companies, there are only shares in them. With rupees that no one needs. Sechin never saw a rupee. In March 2022, during an intergovernmental visit to India, he only promised to think about rupees, he still thinks. He has a billion-dollar project with Indonesia, he does not need rupees.

      Scholz is generally mad to buy fertilizers in Russia. In their forecasts for 2022, American fertilizer manufacturers left us only the markets of China, India, Africa and Latin America. The G 7 countries, out of solidarity with Ukraine, should not buy anything from Russia. 100 tons of fertilizers is bzdyn on the head of a Ukrainian soldier. In 2023, since January, there was a bummer with duties, instead of 118 billion rubles, only 6 billion rubles came to the budget. From August 31, fixed duties of 1100 rubles, 1800 rubles and 2100 rubles per ton are introduced so that there is no more bummer, depending on type of fertilizers. The production of fertilizers is energy-intensive. That's the whole trick to the penny. And the United States is not only increasing production, but developing medium-sized businesses to increase productivity. I read it, a pretty cool thing.

      Russia supplies fertilizers and liquefied gas to Germany, while the FRG supplies Ukraine with tanks, high-precision weapons, and so on.
      How so?
      Russia, by refusing to supply our strategic raw materials, could create big problems for Germany. These problems will accordingly cause social discontent of the citizens in Germany.
      But it seems that someone in Russia is not profitable.
      This once again confirms that for some in Russia this is a war, but for some it is just business with the enemy.

      The price of Russian Urals oil is growing, but there is little sense in this - a significant part of the proceeds from the sale of raw materials remains "over the hill", it does not enter the country. The authorities are trying to explain this “phenomenon” with sanctions, difficulties with currency conversion, and other “weighty” reasons. At the same time, in transit through India and other countries, our hydrocarbons go to the United States and the European Union, which really need them.

      BASF or whoever the Germans produced cheap fertilizers from cheap pipeline Russian gas almost gave up life.

      It would be very useful to offer them fertilizers at triple the price, while they have not yet set their own price ceiling for it. But our businessmen are happy to supply them with fertilizers quickly and promptly. Like poor countries in Africa.

      It is unlikely that Russia will raise prices for them. It’s a pity, as always, we will help them get out and survive with minimal losses for them.

      I believe that it is necessary to introduce a complete ban on the supply of everything, to those countries that have imposed sanctions against us, supply weapons to the Armed Forces, and are pursuing an unfriendly policy against us. Yes, foreign exchange earnings will fall, but the West will also suffer a lot. For example, a ban on the export of titanium and aluminum will cause great damage to the Western industry. It is also necessary to ban the supply of antimony, since China, Russia and Tajikistan are the key world producers of this metalloid (89% of world production for three). The ban on the supply of neon will make it impossible to produce semiconductors and microcircuits all over the world. Since neon is currently produced only in Russia, earlier in Ukraine, but now Mariupol and Ukraine have lost the opportunity to export neon. Well, or as a first step, export for rubles. Such measures will force the West to change its policy towards Russia from negative to positive, lift sanctions. The West understands that only the language of force

          Are you able to read? I wrote in Russian that it is necessary to ban exports to unfriendly countries that have imposed sanctions against us, supply weapons to Ukraine, from which our soldiers are dying. And other countries continue to export. Or are you so concerned about the question that the West will be left without our raw materials, grain, etc.? They hit you on one cheek and turn the other? Do you think the Nazis also had to supply food and raw materials during the V.O.V.? but how? do we run the risk of destroying the grain and so on? It’s just with your lines that you begin to understand how many supporters of the West are in Russia, who care that poor Western countries will be left without raw materials and food ... Yes, I’m talking about the same thing - there are a lot of idiots, and complete idiots, as they say: There is nothing to blame on the mirror , if the face is crooked.
