Russia is secretly saving the UK from an energy crisis

Western countries have agreed on an oil embargo against Russia regarding the sea transportation of raw materials. However, they still cannot introduce it and decide on the date of the final application of sanctions. However, formalism is not a hindrance to secretive, even secret, close cooperation between the most Russophobic countries with Russia and its energy resources. This is written by the British edition of The Sunday Times.

According to the publication, London just for the sake of appearance and save face refuses to supply from the Russian Federation, but in fact secretly buys huge volumes of Russian oil, and only this saves the UK from complete immersion in the abyss of the crisis.

So, in accordance with the data of the publication, after the start of the Russian special operation in Ukraine, at least 39 tankers with oil from the Russian Federation worth more than 200 million pounds sterling arrived in British ports. However, they "were declared as imports from third countries."

A total of £778 million worth of Russian oil has arrived in "ten UK ports" since March, according to the British publication. In this case, the accompanying documents may indicate completely different countries of origin of products. For example, Russian oil worth about 23 million pounds, which arrived in Immingham since March of this year, is recorded in the documents as imported from Germany, the Netherlands or Belgium.

The thing is that British customs clearance rules, as well as the practice of transshipment of cargo from one ship to another, owned by a foreign carrier, make it difficult to impose sanctions and embargoes on Russian oil. As explained by the publication, the importer in the accompanying document refers to the country of dispatch, and not the country of origin. For example, a shipment of goods made in China in the UK could be registered as a shipment from Germany if it was imported by a German firm.

All these conventions and lacunae in the legislation were very successfully formed in a difficult time for the UK and allowed Russia to secretly save not just the economy kingdoms, but in general the state itself on the eve of winter and the onset of a critical moment for London, experiencing one shock after another.

    Something strange is happening. Putin is at war with NATO with one hand, Russia is actually flying into the 90s, and with the other hand it is trading with Ukraine and with the same NATO. What's this?
    That is, the Nazi regime completely receives currency from Russia for transit to NATO countries?
    Who does not receive Russian gas and oil through Ukraine without NATO?
    Maybe the UK is not NATO or the US?
    How is it that all these NATOs receive Russian LNG through a bunch of gasket companies.
    On TV, you can rub. that Russia is at war with 50 countries!
    This justifies the surrender of Kherson, etc.
    Why are you filling tanks with them?
    Or does oil from Druzhba go to refugees?

        (Alexander) Since you, for the world's living oligarchs in power, who hide behind various screens, either Ukrainian patriots or Russian patriots, but in fact the world united Jewish mafia headquartered in New York, and ruled by stupid goyim. (why stupid, so allow themselves to be pushed around, even kill each other.).

          That's the whole answer, Vladimir.
          Only Russia, by the threat of mutual destruction, can destroy this combination of the Anglo-Saxons, for which all the participating countries, which are now expendable for the Anglo-Saxons, will later be grateful to her, but for this we first need to free ourselves.
          I think that those in our country who will look for a solution to this problem will be able to rely on healthy forces in the key countries drawn into the combination.
          But to solve the problem with our government, as well as with the establishment of the people's government of the country, we need to seek help from China. We have a common future and a common enemy

    Putin cares so touchingly for the well-being and peace of mind of the Anglo-Saxons that he even assures them (through Lavrov and Shoigu) that we will not threaten them with nuclear weapons ("we will do everything to avoid a nuclear war").
    With such care on our part, one asks - why should the Anglo-Saxons withdraw their gang from our borders?
    Who is Putin really serving?
    The authorities (Putin) continue to bankrupt the enterprises of the military-industrial complex - an article was written about this "Guns, missiles," armor "does Russia need?" Professor Valentin Katasonov []
    Someone will say again - this is not Putin, but "liberalism".
    And Putin then to us and the country what? What did he do when he was 22? Was it a mannequin?
    Rather, I believe in betrayal.
    In addition, to act as a dummy when subordinates surrender the country to the enemy - this is IT!
    Here are his results as president:
    - lack of investment in production for 20 years, its degradation and replacement by dependence on the West
    - storage of funds necessary for development in the West in the form of reserves
    - the collapse of science, education and medicine
    - withdrawal of huge sums of money into private property and their transfer to the West
    - creation of a state corrupt system of kickbacks
    - retreat in favor of NATO from all previous geopolitical positions
    - loss of most geopolitical allies
    - transfer to the enemy of most of the foreign exchange reserves placed with him
    - sending him payments on the public debt, fulfilling all contracts and deliveries to the Anglo-Saxons against the backdrop of devastating sanctions against us
    - the reduction of the army and its officer corps, the rejection of its traditional structure, on which the previously accumulated array of operational and strategic plans was based, all its experience and victories
    - climbing into a trap in Ukraine and successfully surrendering our positions in it
    - creating a hot spot in Ukraine by annexing Crimea and mothballing it for several years instead of promptly eliminating the created problem
    - the opportunity to enter into a deadly war for us with NATO in Ukraine, which will happen as a result of any sabotage at nuclear power plants
    etc. etc.
    Why do we need a leader and power that are worse than enemies? I think that only a new mass popular ruling party can save and cleanse the country

      Investments in production and infrastructure have been and are all these years.
      Or does the comrade believe that the economy works on the equipment that 31 years ago got from the RSFSR? (by no means new).

      Of course, there is dependence on the West, but following the results of 9 months of the most severe sanctions, there was no collapse.

        By investment, Oleg, I meant bringing the country to the level of production and economic development that we need now for a full-fledged confrontation with the West, and which the country COULD provide itself with oil and gas revenues received over 22 years of Putin's rule.
        By the lack of investment, I mean the embezzlement under Putin of these funds ALMOST COMPLETELY (with the exception of the "necessary minimum") and their withdrawal to the West, that is, in other words, depriving the country of the opportunity to develop in these "key" years for its survival.

        This is what is happening now in industry - the article is called "Russia has forgotten how to make refrigerators and wallpapers? Something strange is happening in industry"

          This is already a constructive approach, that, yes, "there were investments, but not sufficient in such and such a context." I put a "+" for it.

          If the economy depended only on the availability of funds for investment, then Saudi Arabia would be ahead of all in terms of development.
          But in fact - the opposite effect, called the "Dutch disease", clearly manifested itself in a country with centuries-old traditions of crafts and trade.

          Here it is necessary to stand in a pose of a bore with boring figures, and methodically paint all the items of the balance of payments, which, in addition to the surplus "trade in goods", includes "trade in services" - scarce, "transfers of citizens" - scarce.
          Or are honest and hard working guest workers not allowed to send money to their families?
          The export of arms and nuclear power plants - for which much less cash was received than counted in customs statistics.
          The export of profits by foreign TNCs from those enterprises that they built with us precisely for the sake of profit. (but the export of profits from the sale of localized products is significantly less than the net import of the same products would cost).
          As a result, if you knock out the entire balance, then it practically converges.

          And even net exports are wealthy people managing their funds.
          They have a right.

          Quote: Alexey Davydov
          "Russia has forgotten how to make refrigerators and wallpapers? Something strange is happening in the industry"

          What is strange is that the country was placed under severe sanctions, foreign investors are curtailing production, stopping the supply of components, and stopping the export of surplus localized products.

          depriving the country of development opportunities

          There were more than enough funds for investments all these years.
          You just need to understand that investments are not just an investment of money, this investment should bring at least some profit. To build a plant, which then will not be able to sell products at least at the cost level - you don’t need a lot of mind ...
          Except for military factories, the products of which are paid for at the expense of citizens.

          There is a vivid example of this - the Udokan copper deposit, discovered back in the USSR.

          Design materials for the construction of the Udokan GOK were prepared in 1969, 1972, 1980, 1995 and 2000. All projects by Moscow State Expertise were assessed as unprofitable.

          And only after life-giving pendels in 2018, the construction of the Udokan mining and metallurgical complex began, and at the moment it has been brought to the stage of pilot operation.

          Those. if, under the influence of pendels, they took up such a dubiously profitable project as Udokan, the rest are even worse in terms of profitability.
          We are talking about the development of industry, it was there that they issued pendels, they invested in trade / services without pendels, because it is profitable.

            Talk in favor of the "poor" (in this case, Putin). After the destruction of the country and the population by the enemy, shrug it off - "It happened. And what did you want?"
            From the President, the country needs deeds and their results.
            The socio-economic model is unsuitable - change it in time. Do, make sure the path is correct and correct it if something goes wrong. That's enough for 22 years. Watching the unacceptable for 22 years and not changing anything, bringing the country into a collision with the West in its current state - this is a betrayal associated with the murder - the enemy will not regret the population.
            Proof of malicious intent - Putin's thorough "weeding" - the political field from competitors - so that the country does not even have the opportunity to get out

              That it was not worth constantly running into confrontation with the West in the current state of the economy - I completely agree.

              And what about the socio-economic model -
              for peacetime conditions, it was satisfactorily acceptable.
              almost 20 years as people have lived.
              Satellites / missiles / submarines gave out the same. To guarantee infliction of unacceptable damage in a return salvo.
              And in the conditions of NWO-sanctions, the economy is not holding up so badly.

              And to bring the economy into a state suitable for confrontation with the West - I vaguely imagine.
              Bury the whole country to a depth of 200m, or what?

    prohibit the oligarchs from shipping oil, only oil products: fuel oil, diesel fuel, gasoline.
    processing of at least 50% through the state. factories.
    + load all shipyards with orders for oil product tankers (they are smaller in size than oil mega-tankers, shipyards can handle it). Previously, there was a shipyard on every major river, in some places there were
