The United States has completely abandoned energy raw materials from Russia

Washington imposes a ban on all energy imports from Russia. This was announced on March 8 in a speech by US President Joe Biden, speaking at the White House about the situation around Ukraine.

Today I announce that the United States has targeted the main artery of the Russian economics. We are imposing a ban on all imports of Russian oil, gas and energy. This means that Russian oil will no longer be able to enter US ports, and the American people will deal another powerful blow to the Putin war machine.

the American leader said.

Biden noted that this decision is supported by both Democrats and Republicans, i.е. In the United States, there is a “bipartisan consensus” on this score. With its move, Washington wants to show domestic political cohesion and strong foreign policy support for Kiev. He clarified that the United States would not participate "in subsidizing Putin's war" and had previously held close consultations with its allies around the world, including in Europe.

Washington knows that the Europeans, for certain reasons, cannot yet join the boycott of Russian energy raw materials. At the same time, Biden understands that the decision will also hit the United States itself, ordinary Americans, but there is simply no other choice. Washington is obliged to take this step - to create additional problems for the Russian Federation, regardless of the costs.

Gasoline prices will rise after the ban, but we will not be tolerant of Russian aggression. We must be energetically independent

Biden added.

The President of the United States also addressed American entrepreneurs. He stressed that Moscow's actions cost everyone dearly, so now is not the time to cash in on speculation. Biden warned that his administration would not tolerate this.

    Lie! Who is preventing Russian oil from being "reloaded" from the "sanctions" tanker to the "correct" tanker under the "banana flag" to take this oil to the States?!

    The United States itself fell under its own sanctions. If they forbade Russia to use dollars, then why would they buy energy in Russia? They have already lowered the gold - they even tried to foist a fake one on the Chinese. And they no longer sell them for American cut paper. Now only shale oil remains to be extracted - to spoil and poison their own lands. It's called ecology!

    The President instructed the government to determine in two days the lists of foreign countries where the import of certain products and raw materials will be prohibited.

              I do not understand........

              The government has determined a list of goods and equipment previously imported into Russia from abroad, which are temporarily prohibited from being exported from the country. The decision will be valid until the end of 2022. It was adopted in pursuance of the Presidential Decree “On the Application of Special Economic Measures in the Sphere of Foreign Economic Activity for the Purposes of Ensuring the Security of the Russian Federation”.

              The list includes technological, telecommunications, medical equipment, vehicles, agricultural machinery, electrical equipment - more than 200 items in total, including railway cars and locomotives, containers, turbines, metal and stone processing machines, monitors, projectors, consoles and panels . This measure is necessary to ensure stability in the Russian market.

              The export of these goods is temporarily restricted to all foreign countries, with the exception of the member states of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), Abkhazia and South Ossetia. In relation to the latter, a permitting procedure for export, approved by a separate government decree, will apply. It implies that permits for the export of goods to the EAEU countries, Abkhazia and South Ossetia will be issued by the Ministry of Agriculture, the Ministry of Transport, the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the Ministry of Digital Development and the Ministry of Natural Resources.

              In addition, the Government Decree temporarily restricted the export of certain types of timber from Russia. It is banned in states that have committed unfriendly actions, according to the approved list. This decision will also be valid until the end of the year.

              and it's all?!

                This is bad. Some are not even half measures. Complete lack of will and determination.
                Johnson, Biden openly say that they seek to cause irreparable damage to the Russian economy. And in response, a ban on the fact that the West itself produces in huge quantities and of much better quality.
                The outcome of the war will be decided not by the soldiers, but by the economy. And just in the economy, I do not see anything. This is how you can lose the war. Regardless of the course of hostilities.

                  they were banned from exporting

                  from its own - "the export of certain types of timber from Russia is temporarily limited"

              I didn't notice at the beginning "previously imported to Russia from abroad". This list apparently refers to the fact that Western companies will not be able to return their equipment.

                  Now this is more serious

                  the amount of compensation is 0 percent of the person's actual incomewho has exercised the right to use an invention, utility model or industrial design without the consent of the patent owner, from the production and sale of goods, performance of work and provision of services for the production, performance and provision of which the corresponding invention, utility model or industrial design is used.

                  In fact, piracy is being legalized. At one time, the United States and China followed this path.

                  PS I will immediately say that I did not find this document on the website of the Government of the Russian Federation. I don't know why.

                    a simple example: it was worth warning and putting the nuclear deterrence forces on high alert - NATO immediately "sat down" like mice, and do not rock the boat
                    why not "warn" in the same way in the economic sphere?!

                      The abolition of patent law is a very, very strong blow to the entire system of the West. Patent law is one of the main methods of limiting the development of many countries.
                      So, if this is correct information, then the response from the West will be much stronger than at present.

After all, the game is already going on without any rules, out of lawlessness .... Turkey is also forbidden to drive gas further than itself .. Why try to "observe" something else!????

    Mattress covers are cunning, they brought uranium out of sanctions.

    He clarified that the United States would not participate "in subsidizing Putin's war" and had previously held close consultations with its allies around the world, including in Europe.

    But we are already hearing responses to your proposals from your allies regarding oil production.

    Saudi Arabian Prince Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud and Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan have refused to contact US President Joe Biden over oil supplies. This was reported by The Wall Street Journal, citing sources.

    Toyota is returning to the Russian market, like the logistics are broken and we weren’t going to leave everything, but just stopped a little. Shell also doesn’t leave and doesn’t break long-term contracts. McDonald’s allegedly closed and new outlets opened in Vladik and Khabarovsk. 2 months and we’ll laugh at their excuses. I think both Intel and AMD will soon return with excuses with the same logistics that were violated. laughing
