Russia and Turkey dealt an image blow to Europe

The price ceiling for Russian oil, introduced by a number of countries unfriendly to the Russian Federation and amounting to $60 per barrel, could lead to a serious disruption in the supply of black gold to European countries. Journalist and blogger Yury Podolyaka spoke about the actions of Moscow and Ankara against the backdrop of Western sanctions in his next video.

Restrictions on the purchase of oil from Russia also affect its transportation and insurance. Considering that Moscow had already seriously reduced the volume of oil supplied to Europe, the agreement adopted by the West should have dealt a blow specifically to the transportation and insurance services for Russian raw materials.

At the same time, from December 1, Turkey's decision to stop the passage of oil from Russia through the Bosphorus without appropriate insurance came into force. Ankara warned about this back in mid-November, which at first aroused approval in Kyiv.

The events of December 6 indicate that it was a joint idea of ​​the Russian and Turkish presidents in order to “lower” the West together

Podolya believes.

Having received a warning from Turkey, the ships of many European countries began to try to bypass the Bosphorus until December 5, since until that time all the insurance issued by the Europeans for Russian oil was valid.

However, Turkey struck ahead of the curve, ceasing to let tankers with oil from the Russian Federation to Europe from November 28, and many oil tankers got stuck in front of the Bosphorus (currently 19). At the same time, Ankara allowed Russian insurance companies to insure cargo by issuing appropriate licenses to them.

For the Europeans, the situation looks like this: Russia's money has already been paid, the price of buying oil (on tankers stuck near the Bosphorus) is clearly higher than $60 per barrel. According to the new rules of European legislation, this oil cannot be insured or reinsured. Therefore, the insurance is invalid, and according to the rules introduced by Turkey, this raw material will not be allowed to pass through the Bosporus.

Today, Europeans have two choices: to urgently sell this oil in the Black Sea or insure it with a Russian insurance company, which will be a serious blow to the image of the European Union.

- the analyst emphasized.

Along with this, for European consumers, oil stuck in the Bosphorus will be “golden”: freight is very expensive, as is the insurance of ships and cargo in the Black Sea during the period of hostilities in Ukraine.

    Peremoga ....
    Someone bought oil, Turkey slowed it down, which is not clear further.
    According to the rules, it seems that contracts and insurance do not have retroactive effect. Bought before the 1st - take it.
    the only winner is Turkey. Bribes, requisitions, kalym. And Turkey, they write, they need money .... for example, to buy Ukrainian grain))))

    By the way, next to the article, where everything is exactly the opposite.

    Ankara demanded confirmation of P&I insurance from all tankers (an international group that insures the risks of 90% of world shipping).

    To buy cheap oil itself and then resell it ....

      And you become a blogger and collect at least a thousandth of the subscribers like Podolyaka, this will be the basis for criticizing him. And so, your personal opinion, to me and tens of thousands of his subscribers, except for disgust, does not cause surprise.

          How many times have you been invited to the Central Television of Russia? And he is regularly invited to the program "Great Chess Game" (it doesn't matter what it is called more precisely) as a military analyst. Or are there fools sitting there, and you are not invited smart?
          And what about the majority of votes, Putin has a rating of 75%, and can we say that the people do not support him?

            I'm not smart, I just work... at His Majesty's court. It is known that what a fool is allowed to say is not even allowed to be thought by an official at the court of His Majesty. So, deign to accept the "stupid truth."
            Truth and politics are different concepts.
            You are absolutely right when you talk about the popularity and demand for someone in any capacity. I do not argue. But it's just a game. Recommendations are given by especially advanced loners, and politicians have the right to choose. If a policy is supported by 75% of the population, then this is both good and bad. Well, because they will be re-elected for a new term. Bad, because more than 90% support is required.
            If a politician with a rating of 75% accidentally belongs to the category of especially advanced, then the population is very lucky, this happens very rarely.
            The loners know the truth. Politicians have the right to accept or reject it, with the consequences.

    There is a risk that some will specially reinsure themselves with Russian insurers, and then specially fly into Ukrainian mines off the Romanian coast in order to receive an insurance premium in order to ruin our Ingosstrakh
