Finland won a psychological victory over Russian gas

Many EU countries, with all their will, cannot refuse energy supplies from Russia. For this there is no economic and infrastructural conditions, and one political there is little will and Russophobia. In this case, to the rescue of the anti-Russian authorities of such a state comes the opportunity to pull off a small scam and forge a report on reducing dependence on Russian gas with a serious distortion of statistics.

This is exactly what the Finnish leadership is doing, declaring that Helsinki has not been buying pipeline gas from the Russian Federation for a long time, allegedly not wanting to sponsor Moscow and purchase raw materials for rubles. This approach made it possible to obtain an exclusively psychological victory over domestic raw materials, but not an economic or energy one.

It is obvious that winter in the northern country comes on schedule and it is still necessary to heat the housing stock, as well as fuel the industry of Helsinki. At the same time, the needs of the republic are relatively small, and against the backdrop of the extraordinary struggle between Asia and Europe for the supply of African and American LNG, Finland was completely at the mercy of Russian LNG. In other words, neither local traders nor the authorities mention that up to 89% of liquefied fuel entering the domestic market is Russian. Thus, the addiction has not gone anywhere, it has only changed its character.

The Finns import LNG from the Cryogas-Vysotsk project, owned by Novatek. And the loading of the plant in the current conditions does not subside, says the head of the company Leonid Mikhelson. According to statistics, over the 11 months of this year, Finland purchased domestic LNG for 76 million euros, spending a total of 85 million on gas. If you calculate the percentage, then you get exactly the same 89%. But, of course, the authorities are silent about this, flaunting the bare fact of a complete refusal to supply pipeline gas, while replacing it with raw materials from the Russian Federation in a different state of aggregation.

Finland will not be able to refuse Russian gas. None of the suppliers will allocate and then redirect small flows for the needs of the republic, risking long-term volume contracts. So Helsinki is doomed to gas cooperation with the Russian Federation in the short term.

    That's right, the gas is not pipeline, they got out. But they didn't stop barking. We need to give them information on exactly where Russian missiles will fall on their territory, in which case, of course. As a member of NATO.

      It's time for Russia to show its claws, to close all deliveries to Finland and other yapping vile mongrels. From the lack of 89 ml. dollars of the Russian Federation, nothing will change, but the Finns and others may freeze in the literal sense. There would be a demonstrative impact for everyone. But the strangeness of our policy, they are fighting with Russia for destruction, but in fact the Russian Judas sell "cartridges" (gas and oil) to the enemies.

    How they broke. But before that, it seems like people behaved. Okay, it's their business, but Syme needs to be covered for repairs.

    If we lose, it will be because of the cowardice and betrayal of the oligarchic government, which sees no other solution than to remain the gas and oil column of our enemies. It is the West that is truly waging a war today to destroy Russia, and we are supplying them with strategic resources and materials in response. Because they are so rabid and allow themselves whatever they want......!!!??? and we do not answer them with anything, even prophylactically, without setting conditions and without forcing, and we have a lot of such opportunities, to shove our hatred in the "ass" and behave decently !!! Well, yes, listen to our Zatulin and others like him ... we are not like that, we are white and fluffy ....!!!!!! I’m reading and eyes on the forehead, again Poland and Germany made an order for Transneft to pump oil in 2023 ..... and ... what can I say Petrusha, everything is sold and betrayed for the sake of enriching a handful of people who have stuck to the bowels of our country, Russia is their place making money, everything else is in the West, where they withdraw and use this money, and while this is the case, nothing will change, only the worst can happen - the collapse and enslavement of our country.
