Germany is on the verge of the biggest crisis since World War II


The embargo on Russian energy carriers can greatly harm the European the economy, since a very significant part of the demand of European countries for fuel is satisfied by supplies from Russia.


According to the head of the chemical company BASF Martin Brudermüller, the ban on the import of Russian gas, oil and other goods will hurt Europe. He is confident that such measures will lead Germany to the largest crisis since the Second World War.

A certain concern about what is happening is also expressed in the Czech Republic. The Minister of Industry and Trade of the country, Josef Sikela, believes that in the event of a cessation of Russian gas supplies, the Czechs will face certain difficulties in ensuring the uninterrupted operation of the relevant infrastructure.

At the same time, Deputy Minister René Nedela believes that in this case, most EU residents will experience fuel shortages, since in some states of the region the share of Russian supplies in the gas structure is more than 40 percent. Only two percent of the gas it needs is produced on the territory of the Czech Republic itself.

Meanwhile, Nedela considers centralized purchases of blue fuel by the European Union with subsequent rationed distribution as a definite solution to the problem. The Czech Republic, on the other hand, could resume investment in its coal enterprises and stimulate energy security programs.

    Germans!

    When you were friends with Russia - in different centuries - then everything was "zero gut" for you.

    Think ...

    But Scholz already started to laugh. And a certain protester put a saucepan on her head and jumped .... Yes, figs with them. Let them neigh, jump, and howl. Stand up on all fours, etc., etc. They themselves agreed to become this flock.

      Scholz is the US gasket, protecting the interests of Washington, and not his country, in which, due to the Russian embargo, the industry of Germany can be covered with a copper basin.

    It seems that the remains of the brain are still visible:

    The German government has obtained from the EU the exclusion from the sanctions list against Russia of certain metals needed by the German industry, reports Das Erste.
    Germany, in confidential talks with the EU in mid-March, successfully campaigned to keep certain metals supplied by Russian state-owned companies from being included in the draft list of new sanctions against Russia.
    According to the TV channel, the restrictions did not affect the supply of nickel, palladium, copper, iron ore, aluminum and titanium. The ban on their import will immediately affect the industry of Germany until the shutdown of entire industries.

    This is where Russia needs to remember the cunning of the West. They are gradually resetting the composition of our embassies - we are in response to them.
    recourse BUT - the time will come and we will stay face-to-face with the representative office of the united Europe in Moscow. bully First of all, Russia needs to reset the EU representation to zero - close it completely and board up the windows with boards - and it is better to immediately give it to children for school. Then the truncated embassies of each individual country will be forced to conduct their own sovereign policy with Russia, each separately.
    And as a result of the fuss that is happening now - we will just collide with a united Europe if we do not block this cunning feint with them. A herd is not so scary and even beneficial for them than one by one.
    Nobody canceled one simple truth - "Divide ...." hi

    Centralized purchases of energy resources in the European Union are the beginning of its collapse, which is what Washington is trying to achieve.

    Such, here is the picture. If the meaning of the two graphs is added up, it turns out that there is nothing to replace the EU's dependence on Russian energy carriers, and nothing for a long time. Since the total share of energy consumption for gas, oil, coal, taking into account Russia's share in the total energy flow is 20%. Add here the ruble payments for all exports from Russia, the matter will be aggravated many times over. Of course, different countries receive different amounts from Russia, and Germany, for example, depends on Russia much more than many others. Since the same gas receives three times more than it consumes itself. Making money on resale. For her, not only will the energy supply stop, but the ability to resell will also stop.
