Japanese press: Russian oil price cap is offensive, it distorts the market


The anti-Russian coalition struggled to agree on a forced price ceiling for Russian oil. Even in the most useless and unacceptable (for the West) high configuration, the limit was adopted at the very last moment. However, the leaders of the coalition failed to achieve a consensus on the controversial measure, some media from the pool, which are considered to be committed to market relations and democratic values, still wrote the truth about the ceiling on the price of oil from the Russian Federation.


The decision of the West to impose a price cap on Russian oil is an "insulting" and unacceptable "distortion" of the market. Writes about this information portal Yahoo News Japan. According to the authors of the material, the intention to introduce a price ceiling is dictated by the desire to protect themselves from oil price fluctuations (which is rather the concern of OPEC), and not to deprive the Russian Federation of income. Yahoo News Japan believes that the new measure "causes nothing but conflicting feelings," and the design of these sanctions looks controversial.

To prove their words, resource experts argue in favor of the idea that the limit is a selfish decision that protects only the US and to some extent the EU from price spikes, leaving the rest of the world subject to price inflation and the danger of shortages, rising costs, jumps in market prices for everything. energy carriers in general.

The authors of the article argue that in the agreement between the EU and the US, there is an uncivilized cartel conspiracy to control the market. And this is very outrageous and will certainly lead to negative consequences in the near future, the publication concluded.

    The introduction of a price cap is not only offensive. It completely abolishes the concept of the free market and goes against the foundations of capitalism. In particular, the rules of the WTO. By themselves, sanctions (especially secondary ones) are already a violation of the basic provisions of the WTO. Russia is simply obliged to withdraw from this organization.
    Regarding oil, the answer must be tough. Regardless of the size of the ceiling, the immediate cessation of the supply of oil and petroleum products. As well as other goods. Those countries that agree to buy oil must pay market prices. Without any discount. First of all, this applies to India. Well, Japan and China too.

      was it worth shaking the air into an empty one? those who introduced the ceiling will not receive oil from Russia. The Arabs will not reduce prices and will not increase production. There will simply be a shortage of oil products from donkeys from NATO. and what they can buy will be at an increased price due to the exchange. they won’t last long ... All answers have LONG LONG been voiced without any "shoulds".

        Answers have been voiced, but not yet implemented. And the literal answer looks like this: "Russia will not sell oil at a loss." Considering that now URALS oil is being sold to India for $52 (at the exchange price of $80 for BRENT), Russia should LONG AGO stop deliveries to India.

          For India to turn its back and turn to the US? what kind of concern for the interests of Russia ... Maybe Russia SHOULD NOT do something with respect to Azerbaijan? Well, for example, to supply weapons and take a pro-Armenian position? Give advice to Turkey. they concern you PERSONALLY. Only the Turks will not listen hi
          PS At the same time, Russia is ready to feed blacks with its grain for FREE but leave Ukrainians without grain. The USSR is over, times are different and people too. but about the "brothers" this is for suckers.

            As always, not to the point.
            By supplying India with cheap oil, Russia is supplying Western countries with oil. Is it understandable or not? India, in all cases, will remain in the Anglo-Saxon camp. Whoever does not understand this does not understand anything in this world.
            What Russia is doing in relation to Azerbaijan and what Azerbaijan is doing in relation to Russia you do not understand. I can say that relations are quite normal and pragmatic. Azerbaijan is helping Russia bypass Western sanctions and is cooperating to bypass the Bosphorus. That is, he is trying to bring Russia into the Indian Ocean.
            You can, of course, take a pro-Armenian position. That is, to harm yourself. But this is your own business.

            For those who can read. And most importantly, understand what you read. GXNUMX Statement


            Particular attention should be paid to the last sentence. India is in the Anglo-Saxon camp and any other options are simply wrong. Russia supplies the West with oil through India. And even below the "price ceiling".

          Not everything is so simple if other consumers are not particularly visible, and money is still needed for a special operation.

            Everyone needs money. In Russia they are. As of December 1, 2022, the reserve fund of Russia is 11,3 trillion. rubles.
            In addition to money, resources are needed. Russia has them too.
            In the West there is virtual money and no resources. In any case, they are not in Europe. Of course, the wedge on Russia did not converge with resources. There are many in the world and oil and gas and metal and coal. But for them there is a serious struggle.

    The West, led by the United States, always refers to their rules and their own order ..... but when it is beneficial for them ... and when the same rules and order are harmful to them, they are like gopniks and scammers and lawless people immediately cancel these rules and order and try play without rules and restrictions at their own discretion as it suits them. Therefore, you have to be weak-minded to play with such people according to some rules. There are no rules... not at all.

    Personal sanctions against the RSPPers did not spur them to a coup d'état and raised the bar.
    The price ceiling does not affect market relations. is targeted selective in nature, aimed at initializing the conflict of interests of political and economic power, undermining the economy and decolonization of the Russian Federation.
    If this measure of influence proves effective, similar restrictions will be imposed on other goods.
