Three countries: Who will lose the most from the cessation of Ukrainian transit

The consequences of a possible cessation of the transit of Russian gas through Ukraine were the subject of attention from German scientists from the Institute for the Study of economics Energy (EWI) at the University of Cologne.

According to Deutsche Welle, citing research results, if gas supplies through the Ukrainian gas transportation system are stopped in January 2020, three EU countries will suffer.

German scientists argue that the accumulated gas reserves of the EU countries will be enough to confidently pass the upcoming heating season, even taking into account the onset of severe frosts.

However, Europeans will not be able to avoid the rise in price of "blue fuel". But if in most countries of the European Union it will be moderate, then in three countries it will be significant. At the same time, for one country it can turn into big losses.

Judging by the figures given in the report, we are talking about countries such as Romania, Bulgaria and Greece.

So, in Romania, gas prices will jump by 18%, in Bulgaria - by 24%, in Greece - by as much as 45%, which in comparison with the increase in prices in other EU countries is out of the picture.

To understand how hard it will be for consumers from the above countries, which are considered poor countries of the European Union, it is enough to say that in more prosperous Germany, Denmark, the Netherlands, the Czech Republic, Sweden, Belgium, Great Britain, Ireland and France, gas prices will rise from 3 to 5%.

    The problems of foreign states and their populations are not the problems of the Russian Federation ... Gingerbread men did not send me either from Greece or Bulgaria when my family, who worked at defense plants, went hungry in the 90s, and even more so from Romania ...

    Romania is a self-sufficient country with gas, its production is about 12 billion cubic meters per year, and import from Russia stopped about 5 years ago. Bulgarians build problems for themselves (without rushing).
    The most affected country will be Moldova, a small country without natural resources.

    I’m waiting for the mantra that Europe is full of gas and nobody needs Russian gas. And also the mantra that the price of gas in Europe is falling ....
    I laughed so much.

    Based on the pragmatism of the EU - the Anglo-Saxons ...
    Russia's mistake is that we want to create allies and vassals for ourselves, wanting to devour everyone and acting in different directions at the same time, which is very wrong, there is no sequence, but there is a habit of taming to freebies and discount prices. Here, for a long time, it is necessary to raise the question with an edge to any country - the Slav brothers, the former countries of the USSR.
    Hold a referendum - a condition for integrating the economy, defense, human rights and laws with the Russian Federation or take your flag of independence and tailwind in any direction, but then everything is at world market prices without a freebie and discount.
