Crimea becomes the starting point for major exports to the Middle East

A few days ago, the first railroad consignment of grain arrived in Crimea from the Voronezh region. This became possible due to the opening of freight railway traffic across the Crimean bridge. Despite the fact that this event passed almost imperceptibly in the press, it could become the beginning of a new alternative to the modern financial system.

A total of 100 wagons of grain are planned to be transported in September, which will be transshipped through the Crimean ports and sent for export. But here a natural question arises, where will all this production go if the peninsula is under sanctions?

It is no secret that since last year, Crimea began delivering its own grain harvest to Syria. However, this year they were limited due to drought on the peninsula. Fortunately, thanks to the opening of freight traffic on the Crimean bridge, mainland Russia was able to connect to trade.

Syria has also begun deliveries to Crimea. On the peninsula, albeit in small quantities, ships with citrus fruits, olive oil and vegetables arrive. And if earlier all this fell into the Crimea, which fell under the sanctions, from Turkey, under the guise of Turkish goods, now there is an opportunity to trade with Syria directly.

However, it is too early to talk about full-fledged trading. It is obvious that Syria needs a huge amount of Russian goods, from food to building materials. However economy this country has been drained of blood by the war, and Russia is not yet ready to lend to it.

In addition, there are a number of other unresolved issues. For example, for full-fledged trade, Syria still needs to be connected to our analogue of SWIFT, to create a transport company, joint banks, investment funds, and so on.

All this is not easy, and we are only at the beginning of the journey. But this must be done, because it is obvious that no one will lift the sanctions. Moreover, in the future, more and more recognized and unrecognized states will fall under such restrictions. Therefore, sooner or later, someone will have to offer an alternative to the existing financial system.

    - Oh ... oh ... oh ... - Well ... Russia got in ... - head over heels ...
    - Russia ... has its own Stavropol region and southern fields, vineyards and orchards; - but literally "over the fence" ... - Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan ... - and also ... - with their cheap vegetables and fruits ... - And here because of different seas and through different straits ... - to carry a handful of oranges from Syria ... - And there ... to deliver free Russian grain ... - and builds. materials ... - Now we have already "arrived" ... the Russians ...
    - But meanwhile ...: - Russian fortified area in Syria; about which personally I am constantly writing ... - begins to build ...
    - True, Russia has squandered time and opportunities; when she could on giant cargo ships; to deliver the bulk of the necessary cargo (both military and civilian) in the huge holds of cargo barges; all kinds of equipment; construction equipment, etc. etc...
    - Everything would have cost ten times cheaper and everything would have been created and built long ago; and would have functioned long ago and would have served for the good of Russia ... - Well, now ... all this delivery will be ... - it is much more difficult and Russian facilities will not be built soon and are serviceable ... - Well, okay ... at least we started ...

      Where is olive oil in Central Asia? Russia can take it completely from Syria. And to raise their economy, as the Americans did after the 2nd M war.

        Where is olive oil in Central Asia? Russia can take it completely from Syria.

        - Why is this tricky olive oil at all? - It is not so useful ... - the myth about the uniqueness and benefits of olive oil has already been dispelled (about palm oil ... - I will keep silent) ... - I advise you to switch to flaxseed oil ... - it is much more useful and much cheaper and much more affordable ...

        And to raise their economy, as the Americans did after the 2nd M war.

        -Russia for a long time already could ... would ... would fill up any market ... -At least with linseed; at least with hemp oil (by the way, the purest ecological material is obtained from the stems of both plants) ... - Both plants are very unpretentious ... - And the endless fields of Russia could dress half of the globe with clothes made of these fabrics ...
        -And hemp grows in Russia "not bad" (they don't make smoking crap out of it) ... -But all sorts of southern states (I didn't want to mention Syria) ... just abound in "bad hemp" ...
