Energy crisis: Russia has already lost more than 1 trillion rubles


World crisis the economycaused by the rampant COVID-19 and falling demand for energy resources, hurt Russia’s export opportunities - companies selling oil and gas abroad suffered. In total, the Russian Federation has already lost more than 1 trillion rubles.


From January to April this year, exporters missed about $ 16 billion in supplies of oil products, oil, coal and gas compared to the same period in 2019.

During this time, revenues from the sale of "black gold" fell by about a quarter (up to $ 30 billion), coal - by 36,7 percent (up to $ 3,7 billion), gas - by 52 percent (up to $ 8,3 billion) , as well as petroleum products - by 16 percent (up to $ 19,5 billion)

- reported in the documents of the Federal Customs Service of Russia.

The crisis situation was most pronounced in April, when revenues from the sale of “blue fuel” decreased by 26 percent, oil - by 40 percent, and oil products - by half.

In May, the head of the Russian Corporation of Nanotechnologies Anatoly Chubais, in an interview with Forbes, expressed the view that the hydrocarbon era was coming to an end and that Russia could no longer be at risk due to the raw material model of farming. According to Novaya Gazeta experts, the era of gasoline and, as a result, oil could end very soon. Moreover, this end will not be gradual, but quick and painful for the resource-oriented economy of the Russian Federation.

    World trade volumes will fall in 2020 due to the coronavirus epidemic by 13-32%, experts at the World Trade Organization (WTO) forecast.

    Export and import have practically decreased in all countries, but all sorts of red-cauliflower and fake leaflets offer us to do epilation of the tailbone and sprinkling ash on our heads, because the demand for oil and gas has fallen. I would not be surprised if an article about the losses of Russia due to the onset of the heating season, a detailed description of the average monthly temperature and hysteria about the high heating costs appear in the fall.

    This ...... offers to organize the export of nanosmartphones from the nanocorporation headed by him? Salvage, which he has VERY MUCH, is ending? Who interferes - let him begin. But, without contributing to the budget.

    1. Oil sales fell for all.
    2. But I looked at the current prices. Brent - $ 38,87, Urals - $ 39,67. As the saying goes, a trifle, but nice.
    Oh yes: WTI $ 36,7.
    Not so long ago, I explained why the "Brent is the standard" is a misunderstanding. Here is the market and decided.

    In total, the Russian Federation has already lost more than 1 trillion rubles.

    I recall how, in distant childhood, we, in order to impress someone, spoke with bulging eyes, words for importance, such as: Siksilion!
    It seemed so cool.
