Forbes: Sanctions against Russia for oil collapse dangerous for USA


The United States should not interfere in the oil "quarrel" of Russia and Saudi Arabia by coercive methods, writes the English-speaking Forbes, noting that there are a number of important reasons for this.


Thus, the publication responds to a new article in the Wall Street Journal. It says that the US authorities are considering introducing new sanctions against the Russian oil and gas industry, which is guilty of a collapse in oil prices. These measures supposedly should increase the price of black gold, since its current level is devastating for oilmen in the United States.

One of the reasons for the danger of such a "sanctioned" approach in the Forbes note is its purpose. Obviously, Washington intends to use leverage primarily to support its own oil industry, and not to protect democratic values ​​or human rights in the world.

US trading partners will see this and will be less likely to believe that the Trump administration is interested in fair trade principles. It would be much more difficult for the United States to claim that other countries, such as China, are violating these rules.

- notes Forbes.

The publication also draws attention to the fact that the Iranian, Venezuelan, and partially Russian oil producing sectors are already under sanctions, which also hit the trading partners of these countries. Further expansion of restrictions may result in US bans being simply ignored by companies around the world.

    So it is necessary for the amers to declare sanctions: why did they start to increase oil exports? After all, this leads to a drop in oil prices!

    The United States should not interfere in the oil "quarrel" of Russia and Saudi Arabia.

    - Again ...- twenty-five ...- Yes, there is no "quarrel" and the US has already "intervened", prompting Saud. Arabia provoke this oil crisis ...

    The publication also draws attention to the fact that the Iranian, Venezuelan, and partially Russian oil producing sectors are already under sanctions, which also hit the trading partners of these countries.

    - For Russia, only one thing is valuable in this ... - that the "Iranian oil sector is also under sanctions" .... - And here the Americans can stumble very much .., because China does not at all need any sanctions imposed on the Iranian oil sector ... - Here, China plans to dispose of itself ... - for this, China has signed long-term agreements with Iran ...
    - Today, China made a big mistake that it so zealously supported the US sanctions against Rosneft ...
    - China could even wait a bit with such "gestures" ... - And if today the Russian leadership was much tougher and bolder in relations with China, then Russia could put forward a number of reasonable demands on China ... - But, unfortunately ...- today Russia is looking at China ... like ...- a rabbit at a boa constrictor ... - the will is completely paralyzed ...
    - But China and the Americans may very soon have a serious conflict because of American sanctions imposed on Iranian oil ... - And China simply has nowhere to go ... - and it will go into conflict ...
