Putin threatened to stop the supply of all energy resources: the West is not in a position to dictate terms to us

Vladimir Putin, during the Eastern Economic Forum, commented on the possibility of the GXNUMX introducing a price ceiling for Russian oil. The President noted that the Russian Federation would not supply the West with energy resources at prices that run counter to previously signed contracts.

We will not supply anything at all if it contradicts our economic interests: neither gas, nor oil, nor coal, nor fuel oil. We will fully comply with our contractual obligations ... Those who impose something on us are not in a position to dictate their will to us. Let them come to their senses

- Putin emphasized.

Earlier, the G7 countries agreed to introduce a ceiling on prices for Russian crude oil from December 5 this year and for oil products from February 5, 2023. This, in particular, was reported by The Wall Street Journal. Journalists of the publication also mentioned the doubt of a number of European officials that such a step would affect world prices.

The authors of the price ceiling idea emphasized that the measure would be effective if countries that buy Russian black gold in large quantities begin to comply with this restriction.

One of them is India. The day before, Indian oil and gas minister Hardeep Singh Puri said that New Delhi would closely monitor the situation on the oil market and comprehensively assess the plans of the GXNUMX.

    Up to 30% of the budget is formed by oil, the cessation of supplies will deal a severe blow, especially since the “partners” in the east will certainly take advantage of the situation and demand significant discounts, or even completely reduce purchases under pressure from the US and the EU, their premium trading partners who have levers of influence on all consumers without exception - China, India, Japan, not to mention others, and on suppliers - S. Arabia, Kuwait, Iraq and other OPEC members.
    If it comes to a reduction in budget revenues from oil exports, this will raise the issue of financing grandiose import substitution projects, and most importantly, it can provoke a revolutionary situation through a drop in the income of big capital and the standard of living of the population when the tops cannot manage in the old way, and the bottoms do not want to squeeze their budgets.

      That's right, but who will offer them the best price? This Indian-Chinese scam is easy to omit, only ours are afraid that the Arabs will not keep their words and will hand over a competitor like flaking seeds
      The most correct thing is to put oil products on the domestic market - the profit is not large but stable, and this is during the period of inadequacy of the decisions of European comedians with bug-eyed
