The European Parliament raised questions for Ursula von der Leyen due to the record growth in Russian LNG imports

The European Union decided to discuss issues related to publications in the American and British press regarding the record growth in the volume of purchases of liquefied natural gas from Russia. This issue has become especially sensitive for Brussels against the backdrop of statements by European officials that “Europe has gotten rid of its dependence on Russia for raw materials.”

It became known that French MEP Mathilde Andruet appealed to Ursula von der Leyen, head of the European Commission, so that she could clarify the situation with the increase in gas supplies from the Russian Federation.



The MEP who sounded the alarm said that amid “measures being taken to reduce dependence on gas supplies from Russia, there is evidence that European companies are increasing imports of Russian LNG.”

Andruet:

It turns out that in 2021 we imported 15 million cubic meters of LNG from Russia, and from January to July of this year, imports increased to 22 million cubic meters. And if the global average growth in Russian LNG imports is 6%, then our figures are significantly higher.

The European Parliament is now demanding that officials present a list of companies that have increased their gas purchases from Russia and “take appropriate measures.” In fact, we are talking about a typical “stick” method, when, in order to end profitable economic cooperation with the Russian Federation, European politicians are ready to crack down on their own business. This is already affecting the economies of a number of EU countries, for example, in the form of a recession.

Andruet:

According to the Institute of Energy Economics, demand for liquefied natural gas in the EU could reach 190 billion cubic meters by 2030. Does this mean that we are going to continue to increase the volume of purchases from Russia?

        Parallel imports will help you) Pay the intermediary a 20-30% markup and buy “non-Russian” gas. Moldovans are already clapping their hands because they have finally gotten rid of the “Russian yoke” by buying Russian gas from the Greeks with a 30% markup. And we are so glad. The Greeks at least prepay for supplies, unlike Moldova with their constant delays and disputes over debts.

        Yesterday, the United States imposed sanctions against Novotek's Transshipment project against the ships Saam UGH and Koryak UGH, a tanker with a displacement of 2,5 American aircraft carriers, each. Saam UGH will work for countries in the Atlantic Ocean. Experts - sanctions on the Transshipment project will not have an impact. The ships have been crewed since August - the shift is 77 days every 77 days. We are looking in Ura Bay to see who will come for the first LNG and when. This is for those who are interested. Yes, and Novateka still has zero duty - the project is very expensive. But The money goes to the budget through other taxes. The United States has been sharpening its grudge against Mekhelson for a long time.

          No, Mikhelson is too tough for the states - in the pre-Covid 2017-2019 (emnip) the old Rothschild himself spoke out (and he did this very rarely) and called for investments in Novotek. There is so much money in Novotek from two R - that the topic is not disputed, moreover, there are insiders that he himself keeps in touch with RR through Mikhelson.

      So this trade in gas (as well as other resources) is beneficial to everyone except the Russian Federation.
      They will make good things out of that gas from resources and часть they will sell here, receiving surplus value, jobs, and new resources in exchange for the goodies sold.
      But the Russian Federation will receive current dollars, with which it will buy those same garbage goodies. Well, inflation.

          At least in some ways they “caught up and surpassed” the USSR. sad
          But essentially yes.
          We are also destroying the exchange rate (but in the USSR this was hardly noticed because the ruble inside the country and outside were weakly connected, because everything was our own).

        The Russian Federation will not receive anything. Now gas and oil in the EU and even in the USA go through intermediaries. The same goes for calculations. Naturally, the bulk of the funds do not reach home, but end up in the secret accounts of oligarchs and officials.
        From the point of view of the laws of economics, when selling our resources for rubles, as the President spoke about, the national currency exchange rate should be around 30 rubles per dollar, but in fact it is 3 times higher. Hence the delay in the time of the SVO. It's just super profitable. Once again it confirms the postulate that any war is fought over money.

          Well, yes, I’ll correct myself - “at best, the Russian Federation will receive dollars (or maybe not).”
          In other matters, whether there is a dollar or not.
          Well, they won’t sell us a plant for the production of machine tools. Also, the production of silicon circuits, processors and the like will not be sold. And even more so a plant for the production of machine tools for the production of those same circuits/processors. The medical equipment plant will also not be sold.
          And they will sell the goods. The same one that will be made from our raw materials.

          It would be easier to counterfeit dollars at the state level than to sell resources.
          Same inflation, but no damage.

      Well, it’s not the deputies who will put something in their pockets, but “some kind of campaign.” So they are indignant. Besides the fact that their “sanctions” were ignored. )))

      All that remains is to impose severe sanctions against their companies purchasing Russian LNG and worsen the economic situation in the EU countries. The flag is in the hands of Ursula, who is in the background.

      On one of the trains d stations, in western Belarus I was amazed by the number of railway stations. d tanks for transportation of liquefied gas. Question for experts: “Whose gas is in them? And where is it going?” Actually the idea is so-so. This is if, due to a conflict with the gas supplying organization, you would disconnect the gas pipeline connected to the house and buy gas in cylinders from it.

      Europe is still a collective farm. If you earn a little more than others, you will be dispossessed.

      Many thanks to Mathilde Andruet for her attempt to develop the Russian economy. Thanks to such MEPs, Russia will be able to transform from a banana republic selling its natural resources to the delight of oligarchs into a country selling final products with high added value. So let Europe “to spite its mother” gouge out its own eyes and freeze its ears. I approve.

      Thanks to Biden, for using a specific example of undermining the joint venture, they explained to us that Gazprom is not the property of Russia, but the property of the European Union. Gazprom paid 1-2 trillion in taxes per year. rubles, and the losses of the European Union in 2022, with a decrease in Gazprom supplies, in the form of increased prices for electricity, compensation, etc., amounted to about 1 trillion. euro. Clearly, the calculations are approximate and rough. But they show how much Russia earned from Gazprom’s supplies to the EU, and how much the European Union. And it became clear why Gazprom employees in the Far North received a salary comparable to the allowance of a migrant in Paris. And it became clear at whose expense the banquet was.

It is clear that the calculations are approximate and rough.

        Moreover, these calculations are also stupid. In addition to tax deductions, Gazprom invests part of its turnover in the construction of the same Northern, Southern, Turkish Streams and the Power of Siberia. Or do you think that they are financed exclusively from the Russian budget? So if you undertake to compare and measure, then do not operate with a single tax. And yet, yes, when taking into account the EU’s benefits, you miss the fact that their losses are much higher because are calculated not only by the price of electricity and compensation, but also by the fall of the industrial complex. In Germany alone, 50 thousand enterprises have closed, gone bankrupt, or are in the process of going bankrupt. So the situation with the refusal of Russian energy resources has a delayed effect, and it will only kick in soon.

        It wouldn’t be bad here if you gave a breakdown of where exactly at the CS it sucks with the salary. If you take the gas workers I know in the Komi Republic who work at compressor stations, then none of them are buzzing about bad salaries.

      What about the salary in the north in Gazprom, report both the migrant's allowance in Paris and the source?

      Or else it will happen when their plans for a trans-Aharan gas pipeline from Nigeria to Europe are finally and irrevocably ruined.
      True, Israel and Cyprus are stirring up something with their gas pipeline, which even Turkey is not against joining. Despite all the hassles with the same Southern Cyprus.
      But only God knows how things will turn out there.
