We expect the ship 4-5 February.
This ship should be a ship that from the OTHER hemisphere will deliver 85 thousand tons of coal to Ukraine. The price of South African coal for Kiev, if you believe the same Demchishin, is 57 dollars per ton.
The second Peremoga: the price of reverse gas from Europe. According to Demchishin, this price will be about 190 dollars per thousand cubic meters. As the Ukrainian Ministry of Energy proudly reports, “this is 20 dollars cheaper than offers from Gazprom.”
However, the Ukrainian Energy Ministry is again silent that peremoga, to put it mildly, is doubtful, and not only in terms of buying coal from South Africa.
The fact is that money for the purchase of gas by Ukraine in Europe goes under the credit line of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development. After Ukraine refused to repay the debt to Russia, and after another downgrading of the credit rating by the “independent” international agencies, the EBRD raised the interest rate on the funds allocated to 18,5%. Simple mathematical calculations can be obtained that, by purchasing the actual Russian gas in Europe at the aforementioned $ 190, Kiev will be forced to return to the EBRD on 35 more than dollars for each acquired thousand cubic meters. As a result, “reverse” gas for Ukraine turns out to be more expensive than Russian. Its real price for Ukraine is 190 plus the same 35 with more than dollars - 225 dollars per thousand cubic meters. Europe is clearly not at a loss, and Russia is also ...
Russia simply uses its chance to supply gas to Europe at a contract price, and the EU gets the opportunity to accumulate the “take or pay” formula to send to Ukraine at prices that actually add up to interest on the allocated Ukraine loans. As a result, the Ukrainian taxpayer will pay everything from his own pocket, if there is, what to pay ...
So Demchishin will tell the Ukrainians about the real "Peremog"? ..
