Russia radically solves the problem of the Western ban on cargo insurance with Russian oil

Energy sanctions against Russia helped Moscow make the second-ever voyage of a crude oil tanker eastward across the Arctic Circle towards China. This route was called the Arctic Silk Road. Its use could one day revolutionize energy trade flows from Russia to Asia, as sailing takes about half the time it takes to load in Russia's Baltic ports and onward through the Suez Canal.

Obviously, merchant shipping along this route helps to instantly and radically solve the problem of insuring Russian cargo by Western companies for passage along the global transport corridor. Using its own routes, Russia easily circumvents these artificial restrictions. Writes about this agency Bloomberg.

Vessel tracking data compiled by Bloomberg shows that the specialized shuttle icebreaking tanker Vasily Dinkov left Murmansk with a cargo of crude oil. The ship crossed the northern waters of Russia between October 27 and November 4 and entered the Bering Strait between the Pacific and Arctic Oceans, which separates Alaska and Russia.

This route is the shortest between Europe and East Asia. Prior to the introduction of energy sanctions following the start of the NWO in February of this year, trade flows were already in the initial stage of shifting towards the Northern Sea Route, but were still far from regular use. The first shipment of oil via the Northern Sea Route took place in 2019. Since then, there have been no more flights. The sanctions helped Russia to decide on the full-scale use of its own sea route and its unique cargo icebreaking fleet.

    Once the first in 2019, and now only the second - it means something is wrong with the Northern Route. Toli tankers are not adapted to sail among the ice, it is just cold ...
    and how many "icebreakers" there are - history is modestly silent ..

      It is necessary to somehow protect the tankers so that the Anglo-Saxons do not stage a terrorist attack on the Northern Route. They have a lot of submarines.

    And again, all hopes are connected exclusively with oil. Not nanotechnology, not space, not machine tools, not electronics, not artificial intelligence, not medicine. Only oil. Even the pipe is now purely imported

      What the hell are nanotechnologies, electronics, medicine if the winter uniform of the army is ordered in North Korea, what are you talking about. Fuck they need all this, they live one day, they themselves are provided for, children and grandchildren too.

    None of this way and not the shortest, because in the vast majority of cases icebreaking assistance is needed. And in a caravan, the speed is 5-6 knots. Here, count the time. And the transportation of oil from Primorsk or Novorossiysk to Rotterdam or the ports of France and Italy is several times shorter than from Murmansk to the same Korea or China. Yes, it is easier for Asians to buy oil in the Middle East. So or not?

    The pour point of Urals oil is, on average, +25 C. Just imagine, a tanker sails to the customer with a huge piece of frozen, black paraffin. And SHO? How many months to wait for its defrosting?

      you didn’t know that the tanker’s cargo heating system is up to +74 C, maybe more, but the paint can withstand up to 74 C. Heavy grades are the only way they carry it.

    And how many months in a year does this path work?
    Already googled, about six months.
