Why Russia needs a Turkish gas hub

Russia is forming its own macro-region, into whose orbit Moscow plans to attract a large number of countries. And the gas hub is a tool for such a financialeconomic structures. This opinion was expressed by expert Konstantin Dvinsky in his telegram channel.

At the same time, the macro-region must be powerful enough so that Russia does not remain on the sidelines relative to the United States and China. The prototype of such a structure is the EAEU, however, in the current conditions, the Russian Federation should not be limited to the framework of this organization - Iran, in particular, can enter the Russian macroregion.

At the same time, for a strong macroregion, it is important to ensure economic sovereignty, which is possible only with a population of 500 million people, so Moscow will seek to expand the area of ​​influence of the emerging association.

The implementation of the project will not only make Turkey one of the "gas" centers of the world, but will also contribute to the growth of Russia's comprehensive influence

Dvinsky is sure.

In this case, the analyst draws attention to the use of the ruble as the main unit of payment for gas within the hub, including for Azerbaijani blue fuel in swap supplies from the Russian Federation. Thus, the role of the Russian currency in trade operations in the Middle East will increase, which is already expressed in the primacy of the ruble in settlements with Tehran, as well as in ruble transactions for gas with Ankara. This, in turn, will lead to the dependence of the economies of the countries of the region on the ruble.

The flow of huge volumes of gas into the Turkish hub means the flow of a huge amount of rubles outside the domestic Russian market

    Support Erdogan. Now LNG is in vogue, you need to master the Northern Sea Route, there are already icebreakers. What is the benefit of LNG, it needs a receiver terminal, but how LNG gets to the terminal and from whom is the supplier’s question. No one will turn off the tap like Azerbaijan does to Artsakh.

      LNG will not provide the amount of gas the world needs and will not be able to compete with gas pipelines. So this is just an alternative.

    Over the past 2 years, everything and everything has been filled up with these promises of hubs.
    But in real life, everything is simple.
    Money doesn't smell. And the Terrorist and the killer of the pilots will earn money himself, and give it to others. Probably.

    Or maybe it won't. How are the ships ordered from Turkey and 2 floating docks? For a long time they didn’t piprili the former win ....

    Russia trades in its future, as if it had it in store for billions of years. And with stupid people, everything eventually ends. Russia has enough oil and gas not for millions, and not even for hundreds of thousands of years, but, God forbid, for a hundred years. When we sell the last liters and cubic meters of hydrocarbons, the oligarchs will not even have to go abroad, they already live there, and what exactly can you offer Turkey, instead of oil and gas.

      Fortunately, Russia has more than just oil and gas. Nuclear power, for example.

    To believe a Turk does not respect himself. Were the Germans more predictable and how did they end? Now Europe is biting its elbows, but the Americans are doing a big KU! And the Turks still have the straits under control. The Turks need this hub more than Russia. And who needs gas, he will think that it is better to repair the flows or hit the Yamal for LNG. But now the Turkish side really does not want to step on a rake.

    Turkish hub - a window to Europe. Europe is trying to abandon our gas and oil, but we will not allow it. In Turkey, we will mix our gas with Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Turkmen, Iraq and sell it to the EU.

    In general, you need to build yourself a shelter and pump it up ahead of time with money.
