According to NYT fake news on Monday, G7 regimes (pretend to be able) to impose price caps on Russian oil” sales.
Everything they’ve thrown at Russia backfired on their own economies in the form of soaring inflation, disrupted supply chains causing shortages of essential goods, and a looming economic/financial crisis.
In early June, Russian lower house State Duma Speaker, Vyacheslav Volodin, explained the following:
On all things sanctions imposed by Western regimes on Russia, they “cho(se) between a bad and a very bad scenario for the economies and citizens of their countries,” adding:
Curbs on Russian oil sales to Europe will likely cost the state about $22 billion in 2022 revenue.
“But (with much higher) energy prices (because of) sanctions and redirection of Russian oil sales to Asian (and other) markets, the costs can be fully compensated.”
“(P)erhaps our economy will even be ‘in the black’ ” by yearend.
Because of its harebrained policies, EU regimes “will pay an extra of more than 250 billion euros annually,” for energy this year — plus additional costs of transitioning their refineries to new grades of oil.
Hegemon USA “is doing everything to ensure that the main burden of the implementation of sanctions falls on European countries.”
“It’s deliberately weakening the economies of EU states to make them even more dependent on the” the empire of lies and forever wars on invented enemies.
“It wants to govern countries that previously sought greater independence.”
“Now these states can hardly even think about it. They have more problems.”
“By overcoming all sanctions, our country will only become stronger” than already — the benefit of becoming largely self-sufficient.
Russia no longer needs the West.
In stark contrast, most Western regimes are greatly dependent on Russian energy and other key commodities.
If cut off, their economies would collapse.
Russia earlier warned about how embargoing Russian energy and other commodities would backfire on Western economies.
As they concoct more harebrained schemes to harm Russia, they harm their own economies instead.
So-called Biden regime Treasury Secretary Yellen’s aim to limit how much revenue Russia can earn from oil sales most likely will harm European economies more than already if they go along with what demands rejection.
According to the IHS Market consulting agency, oil prices may exceed $135 a barrel on average this year.
Last week WaPo editors bemoaned about “booming” Russian oil revenues, adding:
US/Western regimes “acknowledged that…efforts to block oil imports from Russia are proving ineffective.”
“Europe has no easy alternatives” to Russian oil, gas and other commodities.
According to the International Energy Agency last month, Russian oil revenues increased about 50% since January.
And this WaPo fake news on Monday:
“Russia launched a missile strike against (an) Odessa…5,000-square-foot residential area…on Sunday night (sic).”
Throughout its SMO, Russia struck Ukrainian forces and military targets alone, no residential ones to avoid harming civilians.
And this MSM fake news — falsely claiming that Russia defaulted on its foreign debt for the first time since 1918 (sic).
No Russian default occurred.
Moscow accused the empire of lies of trying to artificially manipulate a default.
Russian Finance Minister, Anton Siluanov, said Moscow is servicing its debt in rubles.
Hegemon USA and its Western vassals are cooking up fictitious ways to falsely pretend that Russia is defaulting.
Last week, Russia’s Finance Ministry serviced two issues of dollar-denominated Eurobonds, ones maturing in 2027 and 2047 “in full.”
A total of 12.51 billion rubles ($234.5 million) in coupon payments were sent to the National Settlement Depository to pay creditors amounts due them.
“Thus, obligations on servicing the state securities of the Russian Federation were fulfilled by the Finance Ministry in full,” a statement said.
Claims by Western regimes and their MSM press agents otherwise are fake news — part of daily Russia bashing.
And this rubbish from Britain’s owned and controlled BBC propaganda operation:
“Russian forces (are) stealing grain from Ukrainian farmers (sic) as well as other crops such as sunflower seeds, along with fertilizer and agricultural equipment (sic).”
Russia is “stealing grain on an industrial scale (sic).”
Not a shred of evidence supports the above fake news.
Just the opposite! Russia offered to aid Ukraine export grain, what it’s withholding on orders from its US master.
No Russian theft of its grain or anything else occurred, other than holding onto Western and other weapons and munitions abandoned by retreating Ukrainian troops as Russian forces advance.
Separately according to the Biden regime on Monday, more sanctions are coming on Russia.
If agreed to by European vassals, their economies will be hurt more than already, not Russia’s.
