By canceling Nord Stream 2, Europe struck the first blow, the second came from Russia


Despite the fact that Europe plans to reduce gas consumption by 15% and is developing energy saving, blue fuel reserves in European UGS facilities may run out by January. The head of GazDay Enerji (Turkey) Mehmet Dogan said this in an interview with the Turkish Anadolu agency.


In his opinion, Europe itself is to blame for the current crisis situation in the energy sector and high prices for raw materials. He recalled that at the height of the coronavirus pandemic in 2020, the cost of Russian gas in Europe dropped to $60-70 per 1 cubic meters. Moreover, Russia daily supplied 385 million cubic meters of gas to Europe through Ukraine, Poland and along the bottom of the Baltic Sea using the Nord Stream pipeline.

He clarified that Russia fulfilled all its obligations, supplying as much gas as was prescribed in the contracts. At the same time, the price of gas in the European market was $200 per 1 cubic meters. Traders simply profited from the resale at a higher price of purchased Russian gas. At that time, many small European buyers of raw materials thought that an uninterrupted supply of gas from Russia would be eternal. But they were wrong.

Dogan noted that gas prices in Europe continued to rise and many were waiting for the launch of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline. However, the constructed gas pipeline, unfortunately, was never put into operation. Therefore, by the beginning of 2022, the price of gas in Europe was already $1500 per 1 cubic meters.

By canceling Nord Stream 2, Europe actually struck the first blow. This step was the first blow in terms of energy distribution. What does this cancellation mean for Russia? Imagine that you have negotiated with Western buyers. Thousands of kilometers of pipes have been laid along the bottom of the sea, large-scale investments have been made. And then suddenly the other side cancels this project. I suspect this caused great discomfort in the Russian Federation

Dogan explained.

      The last one won't. They will simply close their factories, reduce consumption. And we will continue to sell gas to China at a price less than half what it was before the operation. China will pay us less than other suppliers, sometimes even at times, and resell gas in the form of LNG to gay people and profit. Nothing personal, it's business.

    It seems that God did not give you the opportunity to think. Close factories. What about getting paid? Have you been unemployed? How?


    Look at the picture. What is the share of gas energy in the EU. Further, on the second, what share of energy goes to transport, production, life? What will stop first because it consumes more energy? That's right, TRANSPORT. Then, factories, because the supply will stop, and then millions of unemployed ...... What would you start saving in the first place?

    And by what route will China resell our gas to Europe?

      By no route will China resell our gas. But the fact that even before the special operation we supplied gas to China practically for thanks is a fact. Now I think the prices for China are also very cheap, the contracts are long-term, I think they are tied to oil, as we like, and even with a discount to friends and comrades. But in order to make money on our cheap gas, it is not necessary to resell it. It is much more profitable to make cheap products in China and sell them all over the world.

      I will add a little: in addition to the loss of work and wages, the closure of factories leads to a decrease in taxes. and these are all "Western goodies" for the population ... and everyone will be VERY sad. and everyone who lived on subsidies will go to look for a new "promised land", and the locals ... well, xs, how will they survive. products will be less
      and more expensive

    Millions of unemployed and this is non-payment of utility bills. All transport will stand behind the factories, and this is plus cargo transportation, why carry something if millions do not work and enterprises are standing. Well, etc., there will be a chain reaction and we will see what will happen to this winter Europe next winter. And the Anglo-Saxons will buy it in the bud (industry) and then lift all sanctions on energy carriers. The price for them will fall and the competitor in the form of Europe will disappear from their field of vision.

    Such articles should carry the new gospel, the thieves' news to the people, or scare those who behind the cordon do not know how hard it is for them now. But they need to tell you now it’s hard, like during the Second World War, and you should be gloomy with teary eyes and sit at home and read a divine book, and not hang around clubs, ride on the sea, or rivers and moan, moan, that’s so will be, as it will be, but they will hold on. They are prompted, but they do not read Russian articles, they have become completely insane. Do not cry and do not walk the streets in black.

    And by the way, is it really impossible to revise the gas price for China due to world inflation, or does Gazprom not want to offend the Chinese comrades? Even long-term contracts in this case are very unprofitable.

    Think about the welfare of the Russian people. In Russia, 1% of the population owns all the wealth of Russia, and 99% of the Russian people are poor. We should not worry about Europe, we need to be pragmatists, the EU will not survive the winter, fine, then there will be less negativity towards the Russian Federation, it will be easier for ordinary Russians to live. Oligarchs, hucksters, officials will reduce their arrogance and steal less. Proceed from the fact that the countries of the NATO bloc are the enemies of Russia.

    Guys in Russia, you overeat "henbane" there, or what? Or the consequences of covid .....
    Yes, Europe does not care about your gas. These information stuffing that Europe will freeze has already been sprinkled.
    You better look at your feet and start thinking.
    The Baltic States demonstratively spits in the "soup" to you every day, and you supply them with gas ....? Oh well...
    Maybe Borrell became non grata after his words?
    And about the red lines, only the lazy did not laugh ......
    They started the NWO, they encouraged their own RUSSIAN people in Ukraine, and then they threw them under the rink of repressions, murders and filtration .... Tomorrow you will leave everyone in Kherson and Energodar. Just for the sake of saving the lives of soldiers and regrouping somewhere in Rostov.
    And what will happen to those who have been encouraged is not important, even though they will be burned and buried.
    According to some kind of bastard plan, everything is going with you. Rasherachit, bomb all Russian-populated regions and dump? Like we accidentally ended up near Kharkov and Chernigov?
