Russia as an energy power of a new type

62
The definition of Russia as an “oil state” is only partially true, an American expert believes. The fact is that Russia is an entirely new type of energy power. It has global energy influence, surpassing the influence of OPEC, because it occupies a strong position in the oil, gas, coal and nuclear power engineering.




In the American edition "Morning News USA" They write about the "big return" of Russia to the Middle East. According to analysts, Moscow intervened in the Syrian war with a long-range view and is now preparing for a "shake-up" of the world political system.

While Obama, who does not want to link up in the Syrian conflict, focused on Asia, Putin has successfully proved to the world that participation in an antiterrorist operation does not at all lead to such a “linkage”. Obama's pessimistic predictions about the Russian operation in Syria have not come true, and it is Russia that today can advance the process of political settlement. In addition, Moscow helped out its ally Assad.

This is not the only thing that should indicate the growing role of Russia and the decreasing role of the United States in the world. The other day there was a "meeting" of an unarmed Russian fighter and warship "USS Donald Cook" in the waters of the Baltic Sea. The European command of the United States in a panic reported that the "Cook" was faced with "aggressive maneuvers" of the Russian aircraft.

All this is impressive, but the main thing in the growth of Russia's power is by no means a military component, and certainly not the “aggressive maneuvers” that the Western press likes to talk about. The main thing is Russia's global energy strategy.

Scott L. Montgomery, a professor at the School of International Studies at the University of Washington, believes that Russia’s characterization as an “oil state” is only partially correct. Russia is an entirely new type of energy power. It has global energy influence, surpassing even the influence of OPEC. This expert told on the pages of the publication "The Conversation".

“Russia is not what you think,” the author writes. - Most of the discussions about its energy impact are conducted around oil and gas, mainly gas, and Russia can be described (and usually described) as a petro-state. But there is only a part of the truth in this statement. ”

The expert is convinced that today's Russia is being formed as an energy power of a completely new type, and its global influence is even greater than the influence of OPEC. The fundamental reason for such an elevation of Russia is that it occupies strong positions at the same time in several energy sectors, especially in the oil, gas, coal and nuclear industries.

Its multi-faceted energy strategy - from fossil fuels to new nuclear power programs - leads to geopolitical and economic results that affect Russia's neighbors in Europe and developing countries around the world.

Over the past few years, Russia has been the world's largest exporter of hydrocarbons (oil and gas combined). Despite numerous predictions that this cannot continue, there are no signs of change. An important point: export includes not only crude oil and natural gas, but also refined petroleum products (gasoline, diesel fuel, aviation fuel, etc.) that are exported to Europe and Asia. Russia has been a leading exporter in this key category for almost a decade and supplies more to OPEC.

We also have to admit that this country is much richer in hydrocarbon resources than previously thought. However, due to a strong decline in prices, the long-term forecast for Russian hydrocarbons remains uncertain.

The analyst also notes the high dependence of “export customers” of Russia in Europe on its supplies. European countries depend on Russia for an average of 30% of hydrocarbons received from outside, especially gas. Almost half of these countries (including Germany) receive hydrocarbons from Russia in the range from 40 to 100%.

Dependence on Russian supplies from East Asian countries, in particular China, Japan and South Korea, is growing more and more. Previously stated official statements that such a relationship would be overcome or reduced, turned out to be empty. The weak economic situation made Europe prefer Russian gas as the cheapest one. East Asia is still at an earlier, but already significant degree of dependence. Japan, the world's largest LNG importer, currently receives 10% of the total volume from Russia, and is ready for new deals.

The bottom line: Russia’s oil and gas have become vital energy sources in most of the most economically developed countries in the world. If the forecasts of the International Energy Agency and other similar organizations are correct, then the demand for natural gas will increase over the next few decades.

And that's only half stories!

King Coal and King Atom - this is Russia now.

In Russia - huge reserves of coal, which are inferior in volume only to American. Russian coal exports are growing steadily from 2000 of the year: during this time, shipments have tripled, from 45 million tons to more than 150 million tons (third place in the world after Indonesia and Australia).

As in the case of oil and gas, exported coal goes to Europe and East Asia. The volume of supply falls primarily to China, Japan and South Korea (more than 40%, and deliveries continue to grow). Demand in China is falling, but it is growing in India, South Korea, Turkey, and a number of countries in Southeast Asia.

It is also worth noting that Russia is very well geographically located for export along sea and railway routes both to the west and to the east.

Finally, the Russians successfully export their newest nuclear technologies to the world.

Moscow’s Nuclear Essence is the state-owned company Rosatom. Since 2010, Rosatom has signed agreements and cooperation agreements with more than two dozen countries. True, these countries are not the richest: Vietnam, Myanmar, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Armenia, Turkey, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Egypt. Developing countries are interested in nuclear power for several reasons: the rapid growth in electricity demand, the desire for zero carbon emissions and concerns about national energy security. In March of this year, the World Nuclear Association reported on 65 reactors under construction and planned 173. Most of them are in China, India and Russia itself. But that's not all: there are still 337 proposals for new reactors from fifty countries (of which 31 is the country running nuclear power programs), and most of them have already entered into any agreements with Russia. There are other countries in Africa, Southeast Asia and South America that have shown interest and may well join the “new nuclear era” later.

Conclusion: Russia's importance as a supplier of nuclear technology and fuel will only grow, and this will give Moscow a “powerful presence in many parts of the developing world,” and even more than the Soviet Union has ever achieved.

Probably, over the next decade, Russia will become an energy power of a new type, whose influence will go far beyond the economy, the expert suggests.

As for oil, we can add that a bright future may not happen here. Sergey Glazyev, an adviser to the president of Russia on regional economic integration, spoke out on this topic the other day.

According to him, oil ceases to be the primary energy source; the future belongs to renewable energy. “Regardless of how a cartel of oil countries will behave, with the consumption of oil as an energy carrier, the prospects for some growth are not foreseen, either now or in the foreseeable future. Of course, the consumption of oil and gas as sources of chemical raw materials will grow, but fundamental changes have taken place on the energy market, ”Glazyev told the correspondent TASS.

He recalled that the oil-producing countries could not agree in Doha on the “freezing” of oil production, and noted that the world is now moving to a new technological mode: “The growth of a new technological order will be accompanied by an increase not of thermal energy, but renewable sources. The development of solar energy is booming, which at a specific cost of power looks better than thermal energy. ”

There is a contrary opinion on this.

Otkrytie Broker commodity market analyst Oksana Lukicheva at an online conference “Meeting in Doha: what is important for oil and what is not” She said: “Possible withdrawal from the use of oil and gas, as well as alternative energy sources, is another myth, promoted under the“ cut ”of budgets of Western countries.”

“I admit only one possibility of avoiding the total use of hydrocarbons - the invention of a completely new energy source, possibly with the participation of an atom or something like that,” she noted.

According to her, the “scourge” of civilization is a lack of energy, which is why the West, in campaigns for cheap energy, unleashes wars. The same West looks at Russia.

Head of Operations at the Russian market of Freedom Finance IG George Vashchenko reminded: “Oil is not only gasoline, it is the same rubber for Tesla tires. And the majority of electricity is still being extracted from non-renewable sources. Without oil, the economy will not go anywhere. The demand for hydrocarbons is dictated by the laws of physics: their energy density is orders of magnitude higher than that of batteries. For this reason, there will never be mass electric passenger aircraft and the like. Electric transport is a good way to improve the environment in cities, but not to reduce the production of oil and gas. ”

Thus, experts doubt the "drastic changes" in the energy market. Oil and gas will continue to play a crucial role. Probably, the share of nuclear energy will also increase. Renewable energy is still very far from the so-called primary. Therefore, one must assume that Russia will retain its global energy influence.

      What's the point? How much do ordinary citizens have from our energy resources? Given that Russia is an "energy superpower", the cost of electricity and fuels and lubricants inside the country is constantly growing. This has a most detrimental effect on the incomes of the population and ruins production.

        These are all the costs of joining the WTO.
        Raising domestic electricity tariffs is one of the conditions of the WTO ...
        supposedly cheap electricity gives competitive advantage to our products.
        Of course, I consider such actions of our government as sabotage to my people ... however, what can’t you do to please the capitalists both in RUSSIA and in the world.
        The same applies to the Russian ruble ...
        a cheap ruble is beneficial to business ... industry but absolutely not beneficial to the ordinary population of RUSSIA ... such is la vie ... and I won’t be surprised that our unfortunate ruble will once again lower our native government.

              exactly.

              I am fucking sick - again the same rake. Well, how much can you stupidly hope for raw materials? it doesn’t matter - oil, gas, ore ... - all this has a small level of redistribution and added value, large jumps in prices on the world market and experience the same Dutch disease. Only the production of electricity can be taken out of this series.

              maybe it would be better in Russia all the gas and oil and coal would be over soon, maybe then engineering, pharmaceuticals, chemistry, electronics will develop ...

              In Germany, there is almost no horseradish, bl .., from raw materials. zero point, hell of a tenth. In the summer, Germany exported $ 2014 billion in 1500. 3 times more than Russia and 5 times more than Saudis.

And in the reports !, that is, this oil is not from a well, it is virtual! That's where the excess of oil in the world comes from. The need of the world economy for oil is X ton, and 2X ton was bought, the conclusion is an excess! How much real oil is produced can be calculated! But who will consider the real need for oil in the global economy? Statistics cannot be trusted!

                      Can you sell your virtual oil to a refinery? If not, then do not spread this nonsense. The price of oil determines only real demand and real supply! The fact that this hour is an overabundance of oil is understandable, it is at the peak of production. And the fact that this hour has reduced oil consumption is also obvious. It can be assumed that oil consumption is difficult to calculate. But you know for sure that in China (and in Europe) the economic crisis, in connection with this, consumption has decreased. So, despite the upward rebound, the price of oil will again decline.

          hi I, as a person working in a company, including gasification of Russian regions, will tell you how this system works in order to remove some questions:
          1. Gazprom allocates money for the construction of gas pipelines and infrastructure (gas distribution stations, compressor stations, etc.) - the UGSS is being created - a unified gas supply system. It is impossible to connect consumers directly to it - the pressure there is up to 7,5 MPa.
          2. Distribution networks usually go after distribution networks up to 1,2 MPa - they are divided into inter-settlement and intra-settlement (urban, rural - it doesn’t matter). Inter-settlement projects are being built according to gasification plans, which are jointly approved / approved by the heads of regions / regions with Gazprom, and are also built on Gazprom money.
          3. Intra-village ones are built at the expense of the budgetary funds of administrations, that is, the head of the district must knock out / plan this money from the leadership of the region, province, etc.


          Therefore, if there is a relatively UGSS nearby, but there are no inter-settlements, this is how "wonderful" the regional leadership works in terms of gasification of the region, if there are inter-settlements, but there is no gas in a specific area of ​​the town, etc. - it means that the local administration has no money or desire to build networks. request
          UGSS is not everywhere - because it is difficult, expensive and in the absence of "good" consumers it makes no sense, somewhere it is cheaper and easier to heat with coal or fuel oil, especially if it is produced nearby.

          For gas, everything is much simpler. In Russia, on average, gas is $ 70 \ 1000 cubic meters, and in Europe 200 dollars \ 1000 cubic meters .. And this despite the fact that 200 is wholesale , but 70 retail.. And if you take into account extent and complexity operation of infrastructure in our country, it is possible to interest gas workers to supply their population, provided 300-350 dollars \ 1000 cubes... Will our people pull such payments? Not sure .. And the gas industry understands this very well, the standard of living will increase, we will be able to pay for comfort and convenience, then yes, gas to every house .. But how to raise the standard of living is a completely different matter ..

            If 100-150 would have already been interested, but the point here is not only the insolvency of the population. Although for all the solvency of a particular person, administrations and, in general, settlements (without the presence of large consumers in the district) have huge debts. For interest, take an interest in power engineers - they will tell about it.
            The plus is that most of the purchased equipment is bought over the hill and with "foreign money". Our banks give loans at extortionate interest rates - this is already a question for our Central Bank and the government, therefore corporations take money for various projects there and give them away in rubles.

Imported equipment - I agree, but is it really impossible to establish production in Russia? With pipes, the issue seems to be resolved-Chelyabinsk, with shutoff valves, too, but compressors, pipe layers, excavators, telecommunications ... I don’t know request

          Coal boiler room - an anachronism. But fuel oils are quite modern, automatic, without maintenance staff. It is clear that in general the equipment is more expensive and more difficult to operate, but if there is a railway line nearby and there is no gas nearby, it is economically justified.

          What are excise taxes? All these Marxian things that he wrote so well in "Capital" do not work for us !!!! We have one "excise" - greed! Snatch more now, immediately. And tomorrow - even a flood!

          What are the economic justifications, what excise taxes, what rate of return can, for example, have a cheburek in the market selling potatoes? Took 15 bags at the wholesale market. I brought 10 bags to the Central Market in 5 km in my Zhiguli. Put it up for sale at 35. That's all political economy. Isn't that how 99,9999% of our trade works? And chain stores are wrong?

          I bought a jigsaw in "Merlin". For one time. Per 350 rubles. Just cut it and throw it away. Jigsaw was surprisingly successful. The next time such a relative was put into a basket by force. The next visit, I wanted to take myself for 350 in reserve - there was not enough money - I spent everything, but he already 700. After 4 days I arrived, I wanted to buy for 700 - and he 1490 already... The question is - if "Merlin" received some profit for 350 rubles, then how does its profit from 1490 agree with "Capital"? (There were no crises, promotions of dollar jumps and other cataclysms in the country, everything is calm. Just a jigsaw and just a price)

          K. Marx nervously smokes on the sidelines .........

          This is only told to us on TV about economic theories, cunning plans, smart strategies and social responsibility of business .... But in reality - hucksters and grabbers ...

              Yes, I do not forget about it - I have been going to this market for 25 years, I know everyone in the face. And everyone knows me. And how much does it cost - I know, and who pays to whom in this market - I also know. Only if it was easier and more profitable to carry iron on the hump, they would carry iron. And if they sell potatoes, then it’s more profitable.
              It turns out that in many countries of the world, including the USA, the maximum trade margin is established by law. In the USA, it is 17% of the producer price. If potatoes cost 5 rubles per kilogram, then 17% is 85 kopecks. In some states, the restrictions are even more stringent: in New York and New England, for example, the maximum trade allowance for milk cannot exceed 50–55 cents per gallon, which is about 11% of the final price.
              Why do we take from our "partners" only all rubbish, such as the habit of living on THEIR dollars or the habit of speculating on the stock exchange? Why not take something good?

              Here is an example of our pricing. Found the story of one of our clothes huckster
              The company orders clothes of its own design, from T-shirts to coats, in Guangdong province, where one of the Chinese light industry clusters is located. In the same factories, clothes are made for inexpensive European brands Zara and H&M. The selling price of a skirt, for example, is about $5. Logistics costs, or delivery to the hanger in a Russian store, add about 12%. At the border, the product rises in price more than 40%: paid 20%duty and 18%value added tax. After that, the trade margin of the order comes into effect 300%, and in retail the skirt is already $ 31 (895 rubles).

              Multiplying the price tag by four looks like a super-profitable operation. But this, of course, is not the limit. In Moscow stores under the Zara brand, a skirt costs 1499 rubles.
              Do you know why, in boutiques selling Chinese consumer goods, there is a 300-400% markup? Because for any price there are idetes who will buy. I myself knew a man who in Italy bought women's jeans at sales for 10 euros and sold for 500 dollars. And what overhead can justify this price increase?

      And the truth is as follows
      There will be no escape from oil and gas in the near future, neither the infrastructure nor mentally the world is ready for it yet, but the shale revolution in gas and oil has limited the cost of the product to the maximum 40-50 bucks and brought the United States to first place in the world in production, construction LNG fleet (ordered about 70 ships) brings the United States and Qatar to export volumes comparable to Russian ones) Europe has become almost independent in choosing a partner, and therefore can easily play suppliers and prices, as for atom, they leave it and close the stations it’s a strategic decision in Europe and it’s a fact, the future for renewable energy sources is the same act — it will take time, but according to analysts, 2030 accounts for up to 35% of electricity generation.
      In general, such a gas and oil will be consumed, but both its quantity and price will never increase as it was, the carbohydrates burned in the share of electricity production will decrease, the future will be with electric vehicles and hydrogen cars (tayotai nissan have already begun mass-produced)
      Pr in electricity will go to renewable energy.
      Those countries with oil and gas reserves as the basis of the economy will not be able to dominate economically and dictate their conditions -Russia needs to differentiate its economy, rather than catching on a new mantra about a new type of energy supply.

      Let it out! The state allocates considerable money for food and agricultural development programs.
      But there is one snag. To raise cows and pigs, it’s not even at the machine stand. This is not even slave labor. This is worse. This is super heavy work. This is a year-round work. An irregular working day, from dawn to dusk literally. this is 365 * 24 = 8760 hours per year of work. And if you will be the boss of all this, then you can forget about the Maldives. The agricultural process takes a lifetime.
      Therefore, few are willing to devote themselves to such complex work. Therefore, they sat down and were depopulated.

    At the end of the last century, physicist N. Tesla, a Serb, was one of the first Nobel Prize winners, whom he refused to receive. In 1885, he demonstrated the operation of his transformer, and from a turbine of the Niagara Hydroelectric Power Station (power 5000 hp), he lit carbon incandescent lamps within a radius of 25 miles without wires and switches. After that, one of his energy projects received support and was funded by Morgan. N. Tesla at a special training ground created his own power plants operating on the principle of "free energy" (today we would say - based on vacuum energy). When Morgan got acquainted with their work in 1898, he ordered all the installations and the landfill to be destroyed, because he realized that if they were given the way, mankind would never need organic fuel again. Since then, the world has been “seeking energy” ...

      "resting on our laurels" will lead to dire consequences for our country in the future.

      this has already led to such consequences on December 16, 2014, the economy is still falling, which Peskov recently spoke about.
      Quote: Monster_Fat
      we have a colossal "failure" just in the field of modern energy - "renewable energy sources" - solar, wind, tidal

      By and large, one should be careful with these types of energy, one way or another they lead to man-made climate changes on Earth, for example, mass construction of wind generators takes power from air flows, they will not reach where they used to go; solar radiation will no longer heat the earth as before, until the construction of solar stations, etc. etc.
      In addition, it would be nice to calculate the efficiency of all these semi-exotic installations, moreover, not the generation of electricity itself, but the energy and materials spent on the manufacture of exotic plants to generate electricity. Something tells me (maybe because the power engineer?) That the efficiency will not be in favor of any windmills, PES and solar panels.

    For 10 years, money flowed into the budget as a river. So what? There was probably a plan for how to increase them, rebuild the economy, improve health care and education? There was only enough brains to create a reserve and invest it in American securities, and the rest stupidly pull away. We managed a piece in the army well, but to throw it at the defense industry.

    If you remember, in the Eltsin constitution, the subsoil was a national property, and then, magically, already in the second edition they became an object of purchase and sale. What's the use of the people from the fact that the lion's share of sales is deposited on the offshore accounts of a handful of sneaky dark-skinned people and regular officials helping to plunder the country? And those crumbs that remain inside go to support the budget trousers and current repairs of all sorts of suckers, scoops and diggers in order to dig, suck and scoop everything that can still be sold for the Bugaga hillock, I imagine how "grateful" descendants will call our era. great squandering?

    It becomes disgusting when they try about renewable sources!
    The same solar energy is effective when more than half the year is sunny! Moreover, the angle of incidence of sunlight plays a big role. And our country has a high latitude, polar night, for example, lasts 9 months in some northern regions. What solar energy can be here?
    The same goes for wind power. The same Holland is geographically the size of a large Russian province, and there are constant coastal winds that are not in, say, the central part of the Russian Federation or in Siberia.
    What is it all about under such conditions?
    All this talk about renewable sources is just populist nonsense, but for the nuclear energy industry, I’m sure the future, including for mobile nuclear power plants based on offshore platforms - this is relevant just for the Far North and the regions of the Far East. And then to bring coal, as is now practiced, is a very expensive pleasure.

    It is also cool that 60% of the country is not even supplied with gas in our country, the world's "energy power," and Gazprom has already said that it will not be supplied with gas, let whoever needs to buy gas in cylinders. Just recently, the prime minister boasted that our gasoline costs "only" $ 0,5, and in Germany it costs "as much" $ 1,5, like look how the government works well - keeps the price of gasoline so "low". And now let's calculate how "rosy" we have with the price of gasoline. It turns out that gasoline in Germany costs three times more than in Russia. The average salary for 75% of the Russian population does not exceed 250-300 euros. In Germany, the average wage is about 2000-2500 euros, that is, 8-10 times higher than the Russian one, and gasoline costs only 3 times more. It turns out that the population of Germany can buy significantly more of their "expensive" gasoline than most Russians. "Energy Power" you say ... well, well ...

    "Russia as an energy power of a new type" ///

    It was this bluff that Putin got when he became president.
    He proclaimed that he would make Russia an "energy superpower."
    And he did, he did not deceive.
    Only here on the resources you will not leave anywhere. Profitability is very low,
    Compared to industry. And all other industries except
    energy workers are dying ("Dutch disease"), since resources
    require less effort, training, research and development, contributions.

    That left Russia with the first place in oil production, and in the end
    on the latest technology.

Consciously, although not, half-consciously, that is, by the principle, nothing good will come of it, or maybe we will slip through, we have come to the situation that we now have and in which we live.

    The Americans missed a very important factor. Unlike all other oil and gas countries that live solely on the sale of hydrocarbons, in Russia the income from their export is currently about 40% and is constantly decreasing - it turns out that there is actually no oil and gas needle.

    The positions of energy corporations are too strong in the world, so I don’t think that they will make it possible to have at least some significant breakthrough technology in the field of renewable energy sources. So this will be contrary to their interests, and lobism and other instruments have not yet been canceled.

    We consider taxes on the treasury from the extraction, transportation and sale of raw materials, as well as shares of these mining companies, which are in free trade, to be our national heritage - if you want a share of the public domain, buy shares.
    I will reveal a little secret of Punchinelle - in the free market circulation in general, both in our country and in the world, there are less than 9% of the shares of the same Gazprom. Yeah, buy stock. And 90% of SHARES ARE NOT DISPLAYED ON THE MARKET and not withdrawn, they were redistributed among "their" people and partly between state funds.

    Here is such a national treasure ...

They only trade in quotas and "permits", consider "profit", pump taxes, fines, excise taxes, etc. such as "non-market" measures and like manna from heaven waiting for "investments" and hoping for the "invisible hand of the market" which will do and regulate everything for them.

      - ADR holders (28,392%), other registered persons (21,376%). Where you found 9% is incomprehensible.

    How much do ordinary citizens have from our energy resources? Given that Russia is an "energy superpower", the cost of electricity and fuels and lubricants inside the country is constantly growing. This has a most detrimental effect on the incomes of the population and ruins production.

    Citizens of the Russian Federation do not have anything from our mining companies, 90% of all that is mined - oil, gas, coal, and now food is being driven over a hill. Everywhere except Moscow and the Moscow Region, houses are heated with wood, in some places coal, but this is rare. Despite the fact that gas is produced unmeasured, it does not reach Russia. Even coal somewhere in the regions is impossible to buy. We live like in the Stone Age, well, at least during the USSR we managed to connect electric energy everywhere - so where the substations did not manage to turn into scrap metal even though there is light.

    The economy of the Russian Federation is mainly based on raw materials. The population of the Russian Federation from these resources, which are in the depths, can only count on the minimum subsistence level. The "commodity powers" are run on behalf of the consumers of the raw materials by the compradors. This worries me very much.

    The fact that less than 9% of Gazprom's shares are traded on the free market is a concrete fact from stock exchange practice. What some reports say is fiction. Just look at what these "other registered persons" are and who their ultimate beneficiaries are. laughing If you can, of course, which I seriously doubt.

    Quote: sergeybulkin

    This is generally true. For example, if you divide the PUBLISHED profit only for one of the legal entities of "Gazprom" for the entire population of Russia (as if it were a "national treasure"), then each person should receive 6100 rubles. And there is a whole bunch of legal entities, such as Gazprom Neft, Gazprom Nord Stiam, etc. I’m already silent about the fact that there is Rosneft ... Earlier in the Western press there were estimates that until 2013, if Russia adopted a system for dividing national incomes in the style of the Persian Gulf countries or, say, Norway, then every resident of Russia would have roughly $ 2240 at minimum estimates.

    How much is now is unknown.

    Is it a lot or a little? I don’t know ... It depends on how you evaluate.

    Just as a fact, every Alaskan native receives 1000 $ monthly for oil production alone.

    However, do not forget that with this money our country maintains an army, a navy, law enforcement agencies, partly pays pensions, erects Olympic facilities, partly builds roads, and earlier put it off to the National Welfare Fund.

    The expert is convinced that today's Russia is being formed as an energy power of a completely new type, and its global influence is even greater than the influence of OPEC. The fundamental reason for such an elevation of Russia is that it occupies strong positions at the same time in several energy sectors, especially in the oil, gas, coal and nuclear industries.

    Bullshit. As usual, a Western expert correctly indicates the real conditions, after which, instead of conclusions, he begins to move either directly beneficial to the owners, or tries to obscure the reader’s head to fulfill a political order. Yes, Russia is an energy superpower. And why? Because multi-energy? You're lying, uncle. Because a superpower.
    What were energy suppliers before? They were cash cows. Completely defenseless territories in which the captured local bandits were declared kings and emirs. Screwed them with screws on the aphedron "ancient pedigree" and let's "rule" - that is, ensure uninterrupted pumping. What is OPEC's "influence"?
    Yes, no. Do what they say to you, or we’ll crush it, the same Anglo-Saxons say in OPEC, that’s all the influence. Chavez squeaked slightly against what? And that’s all. And Russia is the first energy supplier country that cannot be robbed and cannot be ruined and decomposed like the USSR. Which has a qualitatively growing army, which maintains a perfectly balanced foreign policy ... there is something to be afraid of.
    If we (as we know how) do not trample our own feet, the external enemy will not be able to do anything to us. And our influence will only grow. We need a solution to internal contradictions. Then we will become invincible.
