Germany considers nationalization of subsidiaries of Russian companies

The uneasy relationship between Germany and Russia threatens to become even more complicated. Ministry economics Germany announced that the issue of the nationalization of enterprises owned by Gazprom and Rosneft is being worked out.

We are talking about Gazprom Germania and Rosneft Deutschland. The former is responsible for managing underground natural gas storage facilities owned by Gazprom and trading in gas, including liquefied gas. The second deals with the promotion and supply of Russian oil in the German direction.

The reasons for this decision are the fears of the German authorities about the threat of stopping the supply of Russian energy resources, including in the absence of payments in rubles. How the German Ministry of Economy imagines further trade cooperation after such a step remains a mystery. Most likely, these conversations are simple blackmail, since even the nationalization of these enterprises will not affect the supply of gas and oil in any way, since the subsidiaries do not produce energy resources, and their operational capabilities are limited to what is already in storage or contracted for the near future.

Presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said:

such a plan by the German authorities would very seriously violate international law and all conceivable and unthinkable rules and laws.

It should be reminded that on April 1, a decree of the President of the Russian Federation on the transfer of payments for gas supplied to unfriendly countries from foreign currency to rubles came into effect. Operating accounts in rubles, according to the text of the decree, consumers are required to open in Gazprombank. In the absence of money in the accounts, gas supplies are stopped.

      Well, why kaput. They realized that we helped them solve a primary problem. Now they are obliged to fill the storage facilities with gas by at least 80%, now they are nationalizing them. And now they should, as it were, switch to the ruble and pay for April gas in May. Such a cunning model to get gas storage and also save face.
      I don’t understand one thing: - These ghouls constantly come to Russia to rob. then kill. They count on our humanity, and for some reason we show it every time, giving them hope next time to definitely come and win and not win, so at least save face.
      THEN why all this humanity and understanding, why steps to meet the ghouls????

        Dear zloybond (steppenwolf)!

        You are right - if Germany is not kaput, then ... And then who is kaput?

          I don’t know yet to whom ... but I’m sure - this step forward, this humanity and understanding - this is a chance for them to return again and again.
          But I think that it is necessary to press by all available means so that they feel our love so that there are no other interpretations. Squeeze as much as possible, there is nothing to be gracious about. We are hated, crushed without regret. They insult the president, the country. There is no reason to be sentimental.

    Step forward in paying for gas through the "Gazprombank" gasket, the Germans realized how weak Russia was and therefore began to become impudent. It is better to force them to pay in rubles through the Central Bank of Russia. Better yet, gold or machine tools.

    let the chances take away empty storage facilities and gas stations - shares in refineries, the Russian Federation will take German factories in the Russian Federation

    Despite the fact that all international agreements have been violated, one violation less or more, I think it is not essential for Germany.
  8. the Germans are impoverished - they just stare, wherever they can slam! Shame!

    On March 31, the Gazprom Group terminated its participation in the German company GAZPROM Germania GmbH and all its assets, including Gazprom Marketing & Trading Ltd," Gazprom added.

    Gazprom has already spat and is leaving this zoo, now let the storage facilities themselves fill yes
    Surely Rosneft is next in line.

    ...Germany wants to cut down the branch on which she sits. More precisely, it is already sawing with might and main!)
