Russian retaliatory sanctions: European airlines cancel flights and fire pilots

Many Europeans have been hit hard by the anti-Russian sanctions and subsequent Russian countermeasures. By their actions, the EU authorities have deprived citizens of their usual lives. Now residents are gradually beginning to understand what a global economy and how important the Russian Federation is for their countries as a whole and for each of them individually.

For example, the Finns stopped flying to Asia. It turned out that flying around Russia is very expensive and unprofitable. Finland's state-owned airline Finnair has announced that it is laying off 200 pilots and 450 flight attendants.

At the same time, rising fuel prices have become the main irritant in the European Union. Transport workers are protesting in Spain. In France, it came to the capture of an oil depot. In Italy, the authorities decided to regulate the cost of fuel, but this only led to the paralysis of the work of local gas stations, near which giant queues lined up.

The International Energy Agency (IEA) recommends that Europeans reduce their speed by 10 km/h on the roads. However, they are already reducing the speed, as they see regularly rising prices at gas stations.

As for food and utilities, the situation is no better. In France, the price of fish has doubled. German functionaries Recommend save on heating, drink tap water, buy only seasonal fruits and vegetables, and buy promotional items in stores. The people of Germany are already warnedthat the cost of bread could rise tenfold, to 10 euros per loaf.

    nothing bad happens. Let the euro and dollar fall further. Was it normal to humiliate the Russian economy? Maintain the worthlessness of the European currency and the dollar. Maintain the exchange rate of these currencies??? This is generally a crime and sabotage against the Russian economy. It is not clear why all of a sudden only now some kind of patriotism began to wake up among the monetary authorities? Why didn’t they promote the sale of goods for export for rubles before??? Why didn't they set this as the main condition before???7 Because they couldn't get enough of dollars and euros??? Or because they worked in the interests of a foreign economy???? Let Gevropa get used to it. And the attempts of our monetary authorities to seek compromises in favor of a foreign economy must be regarded as a crime against Russia. hi

    The boomerang law works. The atrocities of Western functionaries in relation to Russia must be punished, unambiguously.

    German functionaries advise saving on heating, drinking tap water,

    Drinking from a puddle or from a river is even more economical. And the Finns can fly to Asia on Chinese planes.

    How many Russian pilots and flight attendants are left without work?
    At least due to the cancellation of all international flights to Europe?
    Or are we glad that a neighbor’s cow died? ....

    The day before yesterday, on Sunday, I was talking with a cousin from Düsseldorf, he was surprised that we are talking about empty shelves in German stores. Everything in the shops is the same.
    He said that he had not yet heard of any increase in the price of products, although they have such things, when in different stores and in different cities the price of products may differ slightly.
    Well, about the rise in price of bread by 10 times, this is of course the association and guild of German farmers and bakers, turned down to attract attention.
    Germany does not buy wheat and many cereals. Their farmers fully provide the country with cereals and all vegetables.

    And also, walk more slowly, breathe less often, eat once a day, do not go to the toilets at all. This is what you are doing us very badly.
