European farmers destroy crops and close production due to electricity prices


Crisis processes in Europe continue to grow. This can be seen from the change in the protest of European farmers, who moved from rallies, blocking roads and throwing manure at officials to more serious actions. Now they have begun to destroy their crops and close production because of too high prices for feed, fertilizer and electricity.


European agriculture is now in shock. Local farmers are on the brink of survival. Previously, they were worried about the new “environmental agenda”, now an energy crisis with astronomical price tags has been added to it. Therefore, farmers, in order not to go bankrupt, are trying to draw public attention to their problem. As long as there are a lot of products on the shelves of European stores, they are unlikely to be heard and understood. In this regard, they decided to take extreme measures, and the supply of cheap food from Ukraine is unlikely to greatly help the European bureaucrats to get out this time.

In Norway, farmers have destroyed crops in the bud, as harvesting and storage will cost more than the production itself. Nordic Greens, Sweden's largest tomato grower, is shutting down production before warmer weather arrives due to unsustainable energy costs. Maintaining the temperature regime in greenhouses (160 thousand square meters) with tomatoes has become impossible, and they will not be grown in the winter of 2022/2023.

In the Netherlands, meat and milk producers have been literally living on the streets of cities for several months, along with their technique, periodically arranging brawls with the police. In a small kingdom known for its hardworking farmers, 11,2 thousand farms will be closed due to government commitments to reduce methane emissions into the atmosphere. The minister of agriculture there recently resigned, but this did not affect the situation.

    For that fought for it and ran!
    We have not yet introduced specific targeted retaliatory sanctions in response.
    Let them deal with their greens, governments and others...

    European farmers from 15 countries poured about 15 liters of milk in Brussels in protest.

    Tsimes is that news from 2012.
    Over the past 10 years, the EU has not starved to death. I don't think it will die in the next 10 years.

    Sorry, for expressing, a mine to the light bulb, what will happen in Europe if the Ukro-Europeans are under the Urals. It turns out that some of them didn't talk, they were aware of what Russia could do. Apparently they were present at meetings on the game, who will get how much from that fat. And people, keep it up. Shameful, very shameful. You don't have tsarist generals, you don't have Suvorov, you don't have Kutuzov. Even Zhukov is not there, sitting on a horse and waiting for the enemy troops to enter Moscow. It will no longer be fun here, they will use everything, they will slam the door so that in Moscow all the skyscrapers will fall apart and the towers will fall on their faces. Everything will start again, who are not lucky from the caves. No one will wait for Russia to get out of where it has spun. So many millions of people died in vain during the Great Patriotic War. Lenin is so ashamed that he hides himself with plywood. Hitler won!

      Something you started the waste early. A few successful slaps in the face, not yet a victory. And what Russia can do, we'll see.
