Brussels called on all Europeans to save energy for the sake of anti-Russian sanctions

During the plenary session of the European Parliament in Strasbourg on March 9, the head of European diplomacy, Josep Borrell, called on European countries and their citizens to reduce gas and electricity consumption in order to impose sanctions against Russia.

According to Borrell, the Europeans should take effective measures to reduce dependence on Russian energy supplies. And this needs to be done at different levels. At the macroeconomic level, the European Commission has decided to cut gas supplies from Russia by two-thirds by the end of this year, which will require many different technical measures.

Citizens should also use the heating system less. Individual efforts are needed to reduce gas consumption

Borrell noted.

At the same time, the head of the European diplomatic department compared such measures with saving water during a drought and using a mask to protect against coronavirus.

At the same time, Josep Borrell complained that after the reunification of Crimea with Russia, the Europeans did not reduce the volume of purchases of Russian gas, but, on the contrary, increased them. Now Brussels is determined to cut this financial and energy umbilical cord with Moscow.

Meanwhile, gas prices in European markets on Monday March 7 reached $3900 per thousand cubic meters. According to the London-based ICE exchange, on Wednesday, March 9, the cost of "blue fuel" fell to $2000.

    How can one not recall the sweet songs of past young reformers and current liberals about market laws that regulate everything and everything.
    By the way - it would be nice to take care of our liberals from the economy, and their liberalism - in the same place. Until the porridge in the pot is cold

    My uncle has a day and a half left. When will the list of countries be announced (most likely all "unfriendly" plus someone else) and the list of raw materials / products prohibited from exporting there from Russia.
    And then he will be more concerned with answers to the mass questions - "what are we for" and "what should we do now" ...

    Now they will screw the valves - they will freeze. Then they will not buy anything else ... And what is the result? There is no gas. And why should he? After all, they hardly grow their own wheat, which means they don’t need to bake Borrell will tell you the way out: fasten the belts on your skinny bellies .... Then the transport will stop .... Well, no gas or oil .... And also fertilizers for vegetables ... And if the laboratories also release their product.... What an interesting time we live in.

      Exactly! Ukrainians infected by American military bacteriologists will boldly enter the European Union as refugees, and then just hold on. Apparently, we should expect the growth of contagious diseases of Europeans. And the States are far away, overseas, they do not feel sorry for the EU.

    hello from Spain without much knowledge of your language, I am studying Russian. We live in a so-called democracy where the "mainstream" media say what America wants. The media say that everything is bad in Russian. If we hire Netflix or Amazon Prime or any other payment platform, they give us Hollywood "ads". So understand that it is normal for Europeans to think this way, Europeans (Spaniards) do not seek information, but only get it by "usual" means. But, I mean, we are NOT all following official thinking. And no one needed "Josep Borrell" when he was a government minister in Spain, and now no one needs him in Europe, but these gentlemen cannot be taken out of institutions, they cling like pincers to the post. Thank you.

    Let them reduce at least half, the main thing is gas only for rubles. Russia needs to raise the status of the ruble. It is necessary to start selling goods, raw materials for the national currency. Let them buy rubles if they want gas... Having set the USS condition - uranium for rubles, the rate will definitely at least stop. And if the world finds out that the US is buying rubles to buy uranium, the rate will begin to strengthen.
