Europe wants to be left without Russian tourists. And gas?

74



Both Russian and European experts say that there is no need to hurry with the introduction of sanctions against Russia: thoughtless actions of the West will cause harm, first of all, to the Western states themselves. But politicians with the stubbornness of a six-year-old child insist on their own - we want and we do. Because of this, in the near future, many foreign companies may lose business ties with their Russian partners, and European travel agencies will not be able to serve tourists from Russia.

Europe declared war on tourism

The European Union intends to impose visa sanctions on Russian citizens: due to the escalation of the conflict in Ukraine, Western representative offices will temporarily stop issuing visas to Russians. True, it is not clear how the Ukrainian crisis is connected with ordinary people in Russia who are not interested in politics: Russian citizens are not responsible for the events in Ukraine.

Justice and decency - overboard: in an effort to annoy the Russians, the West has become the embodiment of double standards. Who, no matter how Western politicians, constantly talk about human rights, about the need to strengthen business ties, constantly demand from other countries to open maximum access for Europeans and Americans - and at the same time prohibit citizens of these states from entering the territory of the United States and the European Union?

However, having closed the borders for the Russians, Europe itself is at a disadvantage: now there are sales of tour packages for the high season, and many tour operators are investing a lot of money to promote their own services in Russia. Reckless visa policy of Western leaders can lead to the fact that European companies will throw a lot of money down the drain, because their customers simply can not get to a place of rest.

The EU tourism industry, which is extremely vulnerable and dependent on Russia, will collapse like a house of cards. Thus, the increase in entry flow from Russia to Spain amounted to 32%, and to Greece - 70%. Last year about 1,15 of millions of Russian citizens visited the Greek Aegean coast. The same can be said about Austria: during the 2013 year, 709 thousands of Russians visited overnight in Vienna. Russian tourists were ahead only of the Austrians themselves and travelers from neighboring Germany - 2,3 million and 2,5 million overnight trips, respectively.

But the economy of Cyprus will suffer the most. Recently, this small Mediterranean republic has suffered from a powerful banking crisis, and the previously prosperous offshore backwater has decided to re-engage in the development of tourism. At the same time, Russian travelers are the target audience of Cyprus travel companies.

The fact is that the British, Germans and Greeks (yes, the people of Greece are also going on holiday abroad!) Have lost interest in Cyprus resorts in recent years. If you close the borders with Russia, Cyprus will be on the verge of an economic catastrophe: there is no industry on the island, and offshore banks attractive for foreigners are ruined.

In general, Russian tourists are very generous by European standards: employees of the Spanish Ministry of Tourism calculated that an average Russian citizen spends an average of 159 euros per day during a holiday, and guests from other countries only 108 euros.

From politics to economics

But visa sanctions for Europe are still half the problem: European companies will have to be much worse if Washington and Brussels also want to implement the economic blockade of Russia. Then not only travel agencies, but most enterprises will be left without important Russian partners. Thousands of deals will be broken, unforeseen losses will lead to a fall in stock markets of Western countries.

It is worth recalling that the cheapening of securities for Europe and the USA is not an empty phrase. In Russia, the state of the stock market has almost no effect on the real sector of the economy; while in the West, numbers are believed to be fanaticism, and panic in the stock market is guaranteed to be the beginning of a new crisis. Of course, the “subsidence” of the economy will not be as large as in 2008-2009, but many ordinary Europeans will feel it.

Closed Russian market will be a disaster for European and American corporations engaged in the production of cars, since so many factories are focused specifically on Russia. But the disappearance of cars from the Russian market will play into the hands of the domestic auto industry.

Breaking up contracts with Russian companies is unprofitable for many of those European enterprises that cooperate with Russian oil workers. In general, the extraction and purchase of energy resources is a painful topic for Europeans: left without Russian gas, Europe will quickly die. Even during the Cold War, NATO countries were not prepared to cut off the supply of “blue fuel” from the Soviet Union; What can we say about today's times when business relations between Russia and Europe have already become very close, and sacrificing them to politics is nonsense.

The European economy can still survive the lack of tourists; but without gas and the Russian market, a united Europe will not last long: according to expert estimates, it will take at least 20 years for European countries to completely abandon Russia's energy resources. Germany is most dependent on Russian gas: if sanctions are imposed, Berlin can initiate a review of relations between members of the European Union, or even seriously think about the elimination of this organization, which has become a burden for the German economy.

Any statements by Western leaders that Europe is about to give up the "blue fuel" from Russia is a bluff. If the EU countries actually did this, then this could be considered a geopolitical suicide of European civilization.

What is the maximum price Europe is willing to pay?

Europe has a limited set of tools for “punishing” Russia for its attempts to stabilize the political situation in Ukraine and save the Russian-speaking population of the country. Visa sanctions, freezing the accounts of individual officials, the rejection of military cooperation, some small demonstrative steps and statements - in fact, the entire arsenal of Europeans.

The US can boast a lot, because they are not dependent on Russian gas. But Russia doesn’t depend on the States either: although business ties are established between countries, parity remains when none of the states can have a decisive impact on the economy of the other. Unless with the use of coarse military force — but, apparently, it will not come to that, since Europe is not interested in aggravating the diplomatic crisis and will do everything possible to prevent US armed intervention.

However, the people of the States themselves are at a loss - why fight with Russia? American public opinion is not prepared for the country to climb into a new conflict with an unpredictable result. That is why American politicians will behave very carefully, and they will not move from words to deeds in order not to lose the trust of voters.

In general, everything is in favor of Russia: the West is not ready for sanctions, much less for war. The introduction of visa restrictions - almost ceiling; under unfavorable circumstances, the accounts of individual officials can be frozen - but one should not expect a massive withdrawal of assets, since Western investors have invested heavily in the development of their business in Russia, and they are unlikely to want to feel the effect of the Russian government’s response.

There are finite unique niches, especially in commercial vehicles, for example, truck tractors, but this is not so bad, there is a Volvo plant near Kaluga that produces almost the entire line of trucks. So far, Korea, Japan, and China, of course, will support the entire construction.

            Yes, the EU sanctions against Russia is the same as throwing a noose around your neck and knocking out a stool yourself, and who will force the EU to engage in masochism, the United States does not make people laugh, in the EU elections in May.

              I would have closed the topic of sanctions at the forum, they would not take such measures even if Russia begins to fight with Ukraine, they need gas, and our market, and they understand that Asians (China, Korea, Japan) will gladly replace, and gas with oil and cars.

              And the sanctions from the United States ... They have cars in inches, who bought an American car usually swears and draws conclusions, this also applies to Fords and Caterpillars and metal cutting machines, and almost everything.

              Let them think better what the Chinese will say, they have already promised to throw US debt securities into the market, after that the US will have a credit rating like Ukraine - CCC with a default trend.

          It depends on what is meant by the word "better". In terms of the quality of the materials used in the decoration, the "Germans" and "Swedes" are better (I do not take into account the premium segment of the Japanese car industry, designed mainly for the American market), in terms of sound insulation, they are definitely the same. If we take reliability into account, then the "purebred" Japanese woman definitely wins.

          I work in the structural division of the Japanese automobile industry in Russia. Nobody even stuttered about any sanctions from Japan. If Europe and the USA go crazy and impose sanctions, the Japanese, Korean and Chinese auto industries will jump to the ceiling and clap their hands !!!! 45% of the German automobile industry goes to Russia. In the United States, a fairly large number of plants are concentrated, stamping spare parts for conveyors of the European automobile industry. And it will be very difficult for the Americans to explain to their hard workers that they closed the plant because Russia captured some Crimea (99% they will not find it on the map) ...

      South Korea has already said that it will not impose any sanctions. Japan through G8 / 7 will be squeezed. China will not impose sanctions. It is very doubtful that Renault, say, or BMW will close their automotive centers in Russia - now the car market has not yet recovered after the crisis and then give such a market. And the United States is unlikely to close the citizen - a military commissar and a double for sure.

      That's right, vassals sing in chorus ....
      About five years ago, when the "boom" about the lifting of the visa regime with the EU began, I on the AllRusskie website expressed the idea of ​​issuing Diplomatic passports to all Russians - this would immediately remove the @ VISA @ MODE - in fact, every citizen is a representative of Russia abroad .. ..

      And there would be no "Buta" case, no one would take the children of the Russians in Finland and France. People would be more responsible abroad. Nakosyachil-ordinary passport in "teeth" - and enjoy the delights of RELATIONSHIP TO YOUR GOS-wu))))

      But then they beat Ambassador Titorenko in Qatar, landed and searched the plane of a "real Indian" in Vienna, when he flew from Moscow - and I realized that you can wipe yourself with the Vienna conventions))) - both had Diplomatic passports with diplomatic immunity and the possibility of free movement ...

      But if the Qatari gas carriers were blown up by "terrorists" -which They earn money, and the eternal "Munich72" began in Austria, then no one would think about sanctions ...

      Since how are you for PEOPLE, so are they for you))))

      What is most interesting in all this talking from the US about sanctions against Russia, Europe will suffer more.

      In addition to shame, America is not in danger. Yes, and Obama will write off the shame, and the next black will not soon stand at the helm of the United States. Economically, America will not suffer under any circumstances - it is self-sufficient. But the weakening of strategic partners in Europe is even for her. Well-known principle - divide and conquer!

    according to experts, in order to completely abandon the energy resources of Russia, European countries will need at least 20 years.

    The funny thing is that the same Khodor ukrokhokhlam said at a lecture in Kiev, for which they were offended by him.
    And the Americans have already begun to take action - the US Congress adopted an appeal to Barack Huseynovich to expel Russia from Ж8 and to suspend the supply of NATO weapons to Russia (something like sclerosis defeated me, which of the NATO weapons do we use?). Everything is gone, now the Russian army soldier will collapse. laughing

    It’s high time to introduce these sanctions: we have already forgotten how to even make nails and sew pants, all imported, not to mention more complicated things. And I will only be glad to relax in my own country, last summer I spent 2 weeks lounging in Greece, there is nothing to do there.

    One of the tasks of the Americans in Ukraine is chaos and fracking, the gas that will fill the Ukrainian pipe, because they are so dismissive of Russian gas, if we just finish building the southern stream, they can already start their fracking, as a result, a few percent of the market is in the pocket of sodomites.

      And the South-East and Crimea do not want any development of shale gas ... let them try to "dig" something, especially after March 16! laughing

      And about tourism ...Maybe the residents of the Russian Federation will basically go on vacation to the Crimea (after known events)? Honestly, people there will try to receive you at the highest level! And let Europe wait !!!! hi

          I was on vacation in the Crimea at 98 .. I really liked everything until it came on August 19, to be honest, I did not expect such a change in attitudes towards Russian tourists, if yesterday you were "the best guest for rubles", then after 19.20 they looked at you like a pathetic beggar , with arrogance and disdain, for all the arguments that a little later your hryvnia will go the same way, they only grinned contemptuously .. time showed who was right. Honestly after this I didn't want to go there again. I don't like duplicity and hypocrisy.
          RS: I will never forget how the conductor yelled at the whole station -Gotovte hryvnia !! I won’t let go of laundry for rubles, but a miracle! The closer we came to Belgorod, the more polite and sweet it became, and the ruble regained its loyalty and grew stronger right before our eyes ..

    One thing is interesting - the Poles, having become part of the EU, support outright Bandera, who took power in Kiev. But the Poles destroyed these creatures as mercilessly as Jews or Slavs. Israel can be blamed in many ways, but they cannot be denied the consistency of the policy of rejecting Nazism.

    Geyropa thinks western. By imposing sanctions, they suggest that our people will blame Putin for everything. But our people are unpredictable for them, they will unite, rally in a difficult moment around their president. They rendered us a great service, otherwise we relaxed, went limp, began to grumble at the authorities, and expressed dissatisfaction in everything. I want to say, thanks Obama, not a single patriotic slogan will unite us as a danger for our country! Guys, not too Komsomol?

    All the same, we have taken the correct course (taking into account the experience of the 90s) - they cannot even impose sanctions, but piss to fight. So enough "probing" - it's time to act. Vaughn and China seems to be already in litigation with Ukraine because of grain shortages.

    The economic bloc is to the detriment of everyone, especially the "blockers" themselves. Sly tortured China will immediately try to drop prices for gas and oil, but I think this will be compensated for after the Europeans again want to warm up and eat in a warm place.

    If someone has not noticed, such a tendency in Europe is that the people are against, and the leadership is stubbornly doing its own thing, and after some time it has abruptly stopped and as if nothing had happened - it has been going on for several years. More precisely, with the beginning of the Arab Spring!
    The conclusion is probably the following: the entire European leadership is subordinate to one person and executes the orders of this one.
    I’m not sure that they themselves (the government) support this, but the order is the order.
    Probably it is necessary to direct all actions to the destruction of the root cause, and not the symptoms of this disease.
