Who is damaged by the "gas gun"?
For the time being, Moscow has not been able to bring half a dozen packages of sanctions to its knees, while the response is hurting Europe more and more.
Péter Szijjártó's statement is perhaps the best of many, here is the video:
Fortunately, we have a responsible government because we made a responsible decision in the election!
Thank you for not supporting the sanctions on the energy sector in Brussels.
In addition to the desperate struggle on the battlefields and the campaign raging in the information space, the opposition between the West and Russia has also intensified in the economic sphere. For the time being, Moscow has not been able to bring a half-dozen package of sanctions to its knees, while the response is hurting Europe more and more. Brussels is now preparing to sever ties with Russia in the energy sphere. The coming weeks could be decisive in the “gas and oil war” between Moscow and Brussels.
Brussels has succumbed to sanctions against Russia. The sixth package is already being discussed this week, with oil and gas being phased out of oil imports by the end of the year. Meanwhile, after the Swedes, the Dutch also refused to unload Russian oil from the tanker Sunny Liger flying the Marshall Islands flag. Russia is not interested in the Russian compromise proposal either, and most Europeans are unwilling to settle the bill in rubles. However, this could even lead to a coalition crisis in Bulgaria, and in some Polish regions there is no hot water or heating.
But gas shortages could also develop in Germany. Sebaj, the government says a sacrifice must be made for freedom: in the cooler apartment in winter, you have to fight Putin with a sweater and sweat without air conditioning in the summer. In an international atmosphere that is partly consciously and artificially hysterized, no one dares to confront the globalist mainstream and stand up for European values by making rational decisions. He showed this well when the Ukrainian president called the presence of German head of state Frank-Walter Steinmeier in Kiev undesirable. A little pouting, but Berlin has swallowed this humiliation and is now supplying heavy weapons to Ukraine. Where is it when you were still fighting for North Stream-2!
The Germans, who have been cautious so far and unwilling to break away from Russian gas and oil for a long time and are protracted under pressure from Brussels and Washington, are now so enthusiastic that Politico reports sector, in particular uranium imports. In doing so, the European Union is bidding even on the United States, which has been careful not to shoot itself down, so that it continues to buy Russian uranium. Just as oil was stockpiled of black gold before it went on the sanctions list, increasing its imports to Russia by 40 percent. If it goes on like this, Europe will put titanium on the list as well, and Airbus may scratch its head to make up for its needs. But not only the aerospace industry is in trouble, but also the chemical, steel and fertilizer industries. Not to mention how the release of energy prices will affect the population and Europe's competitiveness.
Gazprom's decision not to supply gas to Poland and Bulgaria, which refused to pay in rubles, burst into this hysterical mood. The irony of fate is that it is precisely those who have so far wanted to break away from Russian fuel that are protesting loudest against the decision. Boasting a rupture from Russian gas and demanding it from others, Mateus Morawiecki has now called Moscow a blockade of energy from Poland. The Polish prime minister said Russia was pushing the boundaries of its “gas imperialism” and accused Moscow of attacking the European economy with inflationary measures.
