In the United States, they came up with a new way to reduce Russian budget revenues


Washington has taken care of the problem of reducing the budget revenues of the Russian Federation, which have grown significantly since the beginning of this year due to high energy prices. According to Bloomberg, Russia's oil revenues increased by 50 percent.


In this regard, the Minister economics USA Janet Yellen proposes to create the world's first cartel of Russian oil importers, which will include the GXNUMX countries. Within the framework of this organization, it is supposed to fix a price ceiling that could reduce Russia's income without significant losses for Western countries.

This requires a large cartel: perhaps the EU alone will not be enough. The idea of ​​applying secondary sanctions arose. An alternative approach could be the idea of ​​tariffs instead of price caps

- said the head of the US economic department (quote from The Wall Street Journal).

Earlier, Yellen urged European countries not to impose a large-scale ban on the supply of black gold from Russia. In her opinion, such an embargo will not harm the Russian economy too much, while at the same time, importing countries will suffer heavy losses due to rising world energy prices.

At the moment, the G7 countries have not reached a consensus on the issue of sanctions against Russian oil imports.

    Cartel buyers - it's kind of ridiculous. If the seller refuses to sell, then where to get the goods? Take from the seller?

    Do I understand correctly that the right to set the price for the goods is proposed to be given to the buyer?

    A Russian and a Ukrainian got lost in the desert. They roam for several days. Suddenly they see 2 bags. Open in one food and water, and the other full of gold. A Ukrainian grabs a bag of gold, a Russian takes it with food. Ukrainians count gold, but Russians ate and drank. Lies in the sun basking. The Ukrainian counted, counted, but he wants to drink, eat something. He says: "Come on, Russian, play in the market. You will lay out food and drink, as in the market. I will buy." Russian agrees. Spread out: lard, meat, sausage, various drinks. Ukrainian approaches, looks.
    Ukrainian: "And how much does this piece of fat cost?"
    English:"A bag of gold!"
    Ukrainian: "What's so expensive???"
    English:"Walk around the market, maybe it's cheaper somewhere!"

    To be honest, this is beginning to fit the description of the Russian markets of the early 90s of the last century, when cartels of skinhead buyers in leather jackets, led by a cartel head in a raspberry jacket, began to bargain with the seller of the goods they needed.

    Do I understand correctly that the right to set the price for the goods is proposed to be given to the buyer? If so, then a natural question arises - WHAT THEY SMOKING THERE? I WANT THIS TOO!

    Obviously, "they" expect that the seller will have nowhere to go and he will be forced to agree to "their" conditions (after all, it is easier to drive oil and oil products to the West than to reorient them to the East, where, by the way, they also want discounts taking advantage of the situation) ...

    They forgot to ask Russia about this cartel and about our conditions, we also have no fools and will make it so that all the same, geyropa and those who sit behind a puddle will envy Russia and will always depend on it. Well, after the defeat of the crests, we will see how all these figures will begin to look for ways to normalize relations with Russia ...

    I think the option of the final collapse of the EU has been invented. Suspicion in the underground and undercover conspiracy of SEPARATE, the most hungry, will force the creation of control bodies and methods of sanctioning the recalcitrant.

    In the event of an embargo, as some people related to this say, the Russian Federation prepared itself and judging by the statement of Yelen (the embargo will not harm the Russian economy too much, at the same time, importing countries will suffer heavy losses due to rising world energy prices) this is so .
    The creation of a cartel, the core of which will be the GXNUMX countries, is already serious. It will be cooler than Gazprom and OPEC - a super monopolist that will determine world prices for energy resources, and its edge will be directed against the Russian Federation and this is serious.
