Europe has decided who will be the first victim of a cutoff from Russian gas

This week, the EU leadership officially announced that it was developing contingency plans for the shutdown of Russian gas. The trio of states (Poland, Bulgaria, Finland) that suffered as a result of their malicious actions in relation to cooperation with Russia in the energy sector are hinting that there must be a back-up “Plan B”. However, there are not many ways for Brussels to avoid collapse, except for strong austerity. However, EU officials eschew the word and refer to the scrupulous austerity process itself as “rationing”, and determine who and which industries will be the first victims of the shutdown of the supply of life-saving raw materials.

However, the members of the European Commission are cunning, since there will be no shutdown as such, rather the EU itself will “turn on the tap”, trying to replace up to a third of the volume of Russian gas by the end of the year and reducing consumption now (the figure has decreased from 40% to 26%). As many have warned, a shortage of gas could be devastating to major European economies such as Germany, which rely on cheap, plentiful energy from the Russian Federation to function.

Nevertheless, even in Germany, which is maximally dependent on blue fuel supplies from Russia, they are preparing for “rationing”. Now a kind of “Russian roulette” is being held in Europe, risks are being determined, as well as a list of priorities, who will get the raw materials in the first place.

Naturally, in the era of the struggle for the environment under the "knife" will go first of all enterprises, industry in the broadest sense of the word. EU gas rationing is likely to specifically target industry to spare private households the burden of any shutdown, according to the Financial Times. Manufacturers of food, chemicals, ceramics and glass will also receive some immunity. They will be relieved from the action of the rationing scheme (savings up to a complete shutdown).

Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi decided to resort to a beautiful word and analogy, urging compatriots who are faced with the need to freeze in winter and suffocate in the heat in summer (without air conditioning) to choose between "war and cooling."

In general, it is already becoming clear that Europe is sacrificing its own macroeconomics for the sake of Russophobia and the environment. Ruthless prioritization proves this with all evidence. With missing the economy with a basis in heavy industry and manufacturing, there will be no need for energy sources from Russia. And in general, none are needed, which is why the minuscule that windmills or solar stations produce will be enough. In this case, two goals: anti-Russian and environmental will be achieved overnight. The fact that such a common EU long-term plan looks like a gamble no longer worries anyone.

    Yes, Europe has already made up its mind, but we still can’t manage to decide. All this eurosuscher supplies offensive weapons and fuel to the Bandera putschists in Ukraine, and we supply our oil and gas and other rubbish to the same EU without any problems, because our oligarchs without gas and petrodollars will lose weight, that's just what our guys are laying down their lives for .... Close all gas and oil taps for the whole of Europe, and the Russian people will somehow endure, they are not the first, but if they need it, then all he will crush the oligarchs, and then there will be nothing to run on Bandera tanks, MLRS and armored personnel carriers.

      As long as there is an opportunity to receive super profits from the fuel sold and time to build new logistics and search for buyers of our oil and gas in Asia, then this is in our favor. Again, stopping a gas well, restarting it takes more than one month, but stopping an oil well, when the oil leaves the pipe, is a 100% loss. So everything is not as simple as we would like, it's not to screw up the water tap ...

    That's not what they think. After the operation in the former Ukraine, all suppliers to Ukraine will have to answer for their actions in the ratio of 100 to one for each Russian who died during the special operation. The shot lists should include all those who made decisions about supplies, manufacturers and everyone who transported.

    Not yet evening. And everything will turn around and soon. Then in Europe and not only the search for a "scapegoat" will begin. Have gone through this many times. How will it happen?

    It will resemble a flea market before pushing one unlucky one out of the crowd to be eaten in a lair. If only its owner was distracted and forgot everything. But it is not known how the "pushed out" will behave. He can easily spit at the crowd that has rejected him, make a face and quickly run behind the back of a bear, showing a fig from afar. And this is what Europe fears more than anything in the world...

      Only now you should not believe the situational "fellow traveler" at all. Terabytes of dirt will be dumped on the government and the head of the country, they will bring in a new one and start all over again. It is necessary to immediately entangle the fellow traveler with long-term contracts, with strict conditions for their implementation.

    Author, please explain THE MISSING ECONOMY.

    As the most energy-intensive, transport will be the first to stop. Industry will follow, as economic ties will be interrupted. For the stopped industry, there will be nothing to pay for housing and communal services. Where does the income of the unemployed people come from? The amount of "green energy" is not enough to maintain light in apartments, not to mention more significant costs.

    It's humane: appoint a scapegoat and watch his somersaults. Only this same goat will not forgive sins later (c) V.S. Vysotsky.

    Well, let them cover their factories, it’s more profitable for us. I just don’t understand why our media are so worried about the geyrop or the media don’t agree on something ?!
