Europe goes back to basics: EU uses UGS facilities at a record high

The European continent entered the strip of records. But these extraordinary states that go beyond the limits of indicators do not bring joy to Europeans, since they lie in the plane of bad News and negative achievements. A record of low temperatures has been reached, which is bad for the EU energy sector, and then the maximum rate of emptying underground gas storages (UGS).

Now, as if confirming the trend towards disaster, it has become obvious that Europe cannot and does not want to save, trying to maintain its former privileged, familiar way of life without saving and looking back, selects record volumes of fuel from reserves for a comfortable existence, which is why the tanks are still empty. faster and leave no chance for a successful heating season next winter.

On December 13, the maximum, record for this date, gas volume was withdrawn from the underground storage facilities in Europe in the entire history of observations - 738 million cubic meters

— said in his Telegram channel "Gazprom" with reference to the data of Gas Infrastructure Europe (GIE).

UGS extraction, which is extreme for the current crisis conditions, was also recorded in Germany - 250,1 million cubic meters, in France - 117,6 million cubic meters, in the Czech Republic - 36,5 million cubic meters. At the same time, Germany and France have the largest gas reserves in the EU, recalled Gazprom. The company has previously warned that the load on European UGS facilities could be higher this winter, as routes and sources of supplies have changed this year. Savings instead of 15-20% decreased to 5% maximum.

Returning Europe to its roots (when high consumption of raw materials was the norm, providing a high standard of living, comfort and needs of industry), to how it was before, when spending was not considered, and Russian gas was plentiful and cheap, will cost EU citizens dearly and national economies. All dubious records, their inertial impact and consequences will converge at one point next winter. With such consumption and habits from prosperous times that have come to the surface, without Russia and its fuel, Europeans will not shine (in the literal sense) in the near future.

    It has long been clear that the Pindos will fight with Russia, but if possible by proxy, so that they do not fly over a puddle. And according to this, they turned into a club against us, a dead-end branch of the Slavs - the Ukro-Shumers and low-caste Catholics of the Poles, also, by the way, the Slavs. In order to prepare the next in line for the war with Russia, the Europeans, they are first degreased, turning them into rogues, so that later, they can easily be sent to slaughter again, like eighty years ago, beckoning to the east like a "buridan donkey" with carrots, fat black soil, an abundance oil, gas, clean forests and lakes. Now they are being frozen, then unemployment, lack of food, and so on. It was not in vain that they voted against the resolution on the ban on the propaganda of fascism, which will be very useful to them in order to indicate to the lumpen who and where their enemy is.

    Objectively, it is better to spend gas at a level that ensures minimal social disturbance.
    They will survive the winter normally, and then "either the donkey dies, or the emir dies, or ..."
    And about Russia and its gas for the EU - this is a forecast that "is written with a pitchfork on the water."
    And Russia should not behave like an economic prostitute, with a detailed description of this fact in various publications.
    Self-esteem in Russia, in the EU, in the United States is the basis for mutually beneficial economic relations.
    When the US eyes open wide, they will see that their wishes come true,
    but the results give bitterness and something else unpleasant.
