Late epiphany: the EU did not impose sanctions against the Russian Federation, but almost lost Russian raw materials

The “boomerang” effect from the sanctions imposed against the Russian Federation, hitting Europe itself, has become so obvious that Brussels has to play a double or even a “triple” game in order to somehow save the economy.political the integrity of the EU and not quarrel with the US. The direct result of what is happening is not only a global crisis on the continent, but also the failure of the sanctions process. The sixth package was not agreed upon by the permanent representatives of the EU member states. However, this is a late insight, since the irreversible processes of destruction of the former world order, markets, and global logistics have been launched.

As expected, Hungary continues to block Brussels' proposals to ban Russian oil imports. Moreover, the EU leadership expects just the same from Budapest. But the crux of the situation is that even such a game on two fronts has brought defeat - Russia is rapidly withdrawing from the energy markets of Europe, looking for clients in other parts of the world. The European market has almost lost Russian raw materials. This applies both to the oil "leaked" to Asia, especially India, and the supply of "blue" fuel, which is likely to be even more popular in the Asia-Pacific region than "black gold".

The same fate awaits the gas sphere of cooperation. Brussels is well aware of this, therefore they do not want to allow a second, “gas strike” on their the economy, which is unlikely to recover even after the first, oil.

The sixth package of sanctions includes a variety of measures and restrictions for Russia, but the embargo is an important point for which there is a fight. This is the key point of all domestic economic policy in general. The EU understood the real "rules of the game" too late, realized how it is possible to play a secret profitable game so as not to be left with empty hydrocarbon storages. But now it doesn’t matter, the Old World almost lost Russian raw materials, although it didn’t impose sanctions, having carried out a cunning plan to use the active position of Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban.

The mutually beneficial relations between Russia and the West, which have been developing for decades, have been destroyed at the base. A return to the old foundations and stable trade is no longer possible; the frank desire of the parties in this case does not matter. The only beneficiary of the impoverishment of European countries, ordinary Europeans, as well as Russia's departure "to the East", is the United States. Following the lobby of the military-industrial complex of America, the oil and gas industry of this state also received its niche tidbits.

It is believed that the main enemy of Washington will be China or Russia. However, in reality, the White House wants to see Europe weakened and with a constant outstretched hand. And this plan is almost carried out.

    It is believed that the main enemy of Washington will be China or Russia. However, in reality, the White House wants to see Europe weakened and with a constant outstretched hand. And this plan is almost carried out.

    - What kind of "plan is almost carried out"??? - This plan could be implemented only then; when Russia would show a categorical iron will - and would simply stop all supplies of gas and oil and other raw materials that are fossils of the vast natural resources of Russia to Western Europe (and to the USA too) - and even - and with all this, Russia is very would loudly and very clearly announce that she (Russia) is ready in "this season" - to also stop the supply of wheat (cereals, vegetable oil, cake, feed grains, vegetables and leguminous fodder crops, etc., etc.) to Western Europe !!!
    - That's all !!! - But this requires will and determination - this is all that Russia must show !!!
    - And what about Western Europe??? - And Western Europe constantly says and sincerely assures the USA: "I hate Russia so much that I can't even eat!" And for the sake of the USA, it harms Russia in every possible way !!! - But it is she who now speaks and plays naughty; because I am sure that Russia will continue to supply gas and oil and wheat and so on !!! - But when a problem suddenly strikes for Western Europe - both gas and oil and wheat, cereals and other components necessary to maintain the life of little men - will become "not quite available" - then the "Western European little men" will "wake up prudence"! !!
    - And Russia will not suffer even without these supplies !!! - Oh, yes - after all, Russian oligarchs can suffer - how could I have forgotten that !!!
    - After all, the oligarchs can remain without profit! - And the national idea of ​​Russia is "Die yourself, but help the oligarch and save"!
    - Nu, here perishing - without comments!

    This was not trade ... It was the plundering of Russia by the oligarchs together with the West, with the connivance or direct assistance of robbery by the Russian authorities ..... And now, only profitable acquirers will change .... The essence will remain the same .... Naebullina and Siluanov "proudly" carry the banner of the robbers of Russia

    Finding other markets with oil is incomparably easier than with gas. Here our dependence on Europe, unfortunately, is mutual. We will not be able to build the required number of LNG plants even in five years, and it’s better to keep quiet about pipelines altogether. But even Europe will not be able to find the necessary quantities of gas (the price is out of the question now) and will not be able to in a few years, and a decade is clearly not enough for a "green transition".

    again demagogy.
    complete failure is a matter of time because this is a self-sufficient goal.
