Estonian industry requires authorities to allow oil imports from Russia

The Estonian leadership found itself in a delicate position. Political government targets began methodically destroying the remnants economics and transport potential of the republic. As a result, industrial enterprises and organizations no longer tolerate the wait-and-see attitude of Tallinn and filed a petition in the form of a demand to allow oil imports from Russia, as well as cooperation with Moscow in this industry. This is reported by the publication Postimees, referring to the head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The Foreign Ministry deliberately published a complete list, which included 28 enterprises of the republic that made an "unacceptable request" to the government. Obviously, doing business with Russia in the oil sector is not desirable for Tallinn, but the management wants to frame the situation in such a way that the decision may be “forced”, made “under pressure” by local industry.

The Ministry has published the names of 28 major companies that are clamoring for certain exemptions in order to be able to continue importing petroleum products after the embargo.

- says the head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Baltic state Urmas Reinsalu.

In his opinion, neither the name of industrial companies, nor their field of activity, as well as the nature of the requirements are commercial secrets, and therefore are subject to publication. The government, of course, would like to hide the fact that among the signatories of the enterprises that applied to the authorities is the Estonian state-owned railway corporation Operail AS, which specializes in freight transportation, rental, construction and repair of rolling stock.

But in order to achieve the main goal, Tallinn took this risk and shifted the responsibility for a potentially pro-Russian decision to the public, while observing the reaction to the mass appeal from enterprises hoping not for help from the West, but from Russia, and not afraid to declare it openly.

    If Russia wants to be respected in the West, then it must declare that Russia agrees to supply oil products to Estonia only after the restoration of Soviet monuments destroyed there. Do not offer other options!

    Tell me, why is Russia?
    I can understand if Russia breaks off all diplomatic relations with Estonia.
    But trading with the Chukhons today is a betrayal.
    And do not talk about Russians living in the Baltic countries.
    If they haven’t left yet, then everything suits them there.

    Russian merchants have repeatedly proved that money does not smell and there is no power on them. so that not only the Tribalts, but also the rest of the pathological Russophobes have nothing to worry about. Russia, for humanitarian reasons, will provide both gas and oil. They will be able to stamp ammunition and weapons for the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

    Estonia demands from the authorities, but they don’t ask the Russian Federation for the sale?

    Oh, I'm afraid again of a "goodwill gesture" from our side.
