Putin ordered to sell Russian energy resources for rubles

Vladimir Putin, during a meeting with the government, instructed the relevant ministers to implement a set of measures to sell energy resources to "unfriendly countries" for rubles.

The Russian president recalled that the US and the EU had actually defaulted on their obligations to Russia.

Now everyone in the world knows that obligations in dollars and euros may not be fulfilled. Under such conditions, it makes no sense to receive payment for Russian goods in European and American currencies.

- said Putin.

In this regard, the leader of the Russian Federation decided to sell Russian products to these regions of the world for rubles, and gas will be the first such commodity.

Against the backdrop of the decision of the President of Russia, the dollar exchange rate against the ruble fell, and the American currency began to cost less than 100 rubles.

Meanwhile, in recent days, gas prices in Europe have remained stable - the cost of April futures for "blue fuel" in European markets fluctuates between 1100 and 1140 dollars per thousand cubic meters. This is noticeably lower than gas prices in early March, when they rose to $3900 amid a possible halt in Russian energy exports to Europe.

It is quite possible that after Moscow's decision to sell Russian gas for rubles, its prices will seriously change.

      we need to go further - Russian importers of EU goods should buy euros for rubles on the EU exchanges (and not in Russian banks), and only then buy EU goods. if the EU does not want to sell euros for rubles, then it is necessary to stop buying euro goods

    Well, for now, these are just words. The authorities talked about the mechanism of such payments many times, but quickly forgot, since it is not easy and not very convenient. In this situation, such a step is justified, but the mechanism has not yet been developed. That's when the payments will start, then we'll see. Again, if we manage to push through this topic, this will be such a serious victory. Moreover, the entire population of Russia will feel this goodie. Probably the first and only step of the Russian authorities that can have a positive impact on the lives of ordinary people ..

        oh lee .. Our authorities are very funny people, they can say anything, but they will not blackmail "partners". And they don't say it openly. Do you know what might be happening now? Europe will receive gas and pay some subsidiary of Gazprom that is legally in the EU and block the ability to transfer money to the Russian Federation. So the authorities of the Russian Federation will pump gas so as not to look like blackmailers and wait and hope that the money will be unlocked when the thread is unlocked and will make it possible to pay in euros and dollars. and in order to buy rubles, you need to sell euros or dollars, but this is forbidden to do ..

            I tell you again that if they strain, they will find ways to transfer money to some Gazprom subsidiary in Europe so as not to violate the contract, but it will not be possible to transfer money from the daughter to Russia. There are many options for solving problems, just as it is very unlikely to force people to buy rubles, but some buyers can be swayed. But the same Germany is unlikely ..

      In the meantime, there is no such mechanism, we stop all deliveries of energy resources to unfriendly countries and calmly work out this mechanism. I am more than sure that in a week the European Reich will turn to Russia with its proposals for help.

        Why?! .... Only today I was puzzled by the question in the sense of continuing deliveries when, in response, we reboot into all the cracks. And here it is - the meaning. Deliveries have not stopped and continue. If you want - buy, but already for rubles. If you don't want to, walk around the market, look for something else.

    A good way to replenish foreign exchange reserves and domestic economic stability.
    It would be quite nice if this course was supported by the EAEU and the SCO, S. Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, and other state entities.
    If the Russian Federation, by its decision, contributes to the emergence of some kind of international currency within the framework of the EAEU and the SCO, then the West will greatly regret this.
    In the meantime, you can’t do without dollars and euros, you can’t buy anything on the world market for rubles and national banknotes.

    And here is what a politician from Ukraine, who is not at all friendly to us, wrote:

    Now the Europeans must sell the euro, so necessary in the current conditions to the Russians, and buy rubles for it. And this will be done through Russian banks. Next year's volumes are at least 400 billion euros, based on current gas prices. The EU simply cannot refuse Russian gas in 2022-23. Putin's logic is very simple: the economic and political battle must be won now. And what happens next will be dealt with later.

    ..... Yes, and the dollar immediately began to fall in price. Already less than 100 rubles at the auction. And it will be even cheaper.

    After the war, the whole world was built around the dollar. Now this is not authority, but paper, and even without a gold equivalent. Recall, finally, the time when the Ruble of the Russian Empire was needed by the world. And now everyone who needs goods from Russia - gas, then uranium, fertilizers, nickel, polladium, wheat and the entire periodic table will be purchased for rubles. Goodbye dollar and euro!

    rubles will be bought for euros (bucks), which means junk cash will accumulate, and it will still have to be disposed of by exchanging it for gold, precious metals, technologies, etc. it is impossible to accumulate Western candy wrappers
