What not Buying Russian Commodities Will Mean for Europe?

I just love how our beloved European Union tries to prevent local consumers from buying oil, gas, wood, you name it from Russia. If the gods want punish anyone, he takes away his sanity. I am pro-Russian troll, so all I can do about this is try to survive in Europe and laugh as things around me go to shit…

You see, Europe produces junk with an added value. This is not to say the products are bad but these products depend on primary commodities more often than not coming from Russia, they depend on deliveries made by trucks, which all run on oil. Their makers eat bread which requires Russian gas.

Banning these commodities may cause Russia some problems but in the end, the Russians will find new customers. Their gas and oil prices will not rise, and Russian producers will not suffer from their break with the West. Same cannot be said of us Europeans.

The result of this is nothing but impoverishment of the local population, and the closure of local industries. Out of desperation, they will probably return to burning coal, we have plenty of that still.

UPD:

But in the meantime, Brudermuller described that “It’s not enough that we all turn down the heating by 2 degrees now” given that “Russia covers 55 percent of German natural gas consumption.” He emphasized that if Russian gas disappeared overnight, “many things would collapse here” – given that “we would have high levels of unemployment, and many companies would go bankrupt. This would lead to irreversible damage.” He continued:

“To put it bluntly: This could bring the German economy into its worst crisis since the end of the Second World War and destroy our prosperity. For many small and medium-sized companies in particular, it could mean the end. We can’t risk that!”

As for my home country, the Czech Republic, the Czech economy acts as a subcontractor of the German economy. So, if Germany goes to shit, they will drag us fully into it.

British Sanctions Response Shows UK is Governed by Complete Morons

So, the British political class decided to sanction Russian oligarchs, and instead they went after essentially British businessmen of Russian origin.

I don’t know much about Fridman but the guy is a relic of the nineties, and from what I have heard, he transferred most of his assets from Russia to the UK. He lives in London for fuck sakes! I have to ask, is Boris working for Putin? Because for a while, people in Russia held a grudge against what they call a “compradore elite” that makes money in Russia and spends them in locations such as London. Fridman said he has no sway over Putin, and the people making decisions in Britain haven’t got a slightest idea about how Russia works.

By sanctioning “Russian oligarchs” Boris’ government has threatened iconic British businesses, like the football club Chelsea. The football club has been the property of Roman Abramovich, another relic of the nineties that lives in the UK. Roman Abramovich has been very good to Chelsea, he has invested heavily into the club and made it win big. Now Chelsea is facing insolvency…

Chelsea fans know this…

The Chelsea fans were also allegedly booing when there was a minute of silence for Ukraine. You can’t make this up, they must be laughing all the way to the bank in the Kremlin.

The whole sanctions response has made our utilities bills higher, commodities prices are through the roof, businesses are suffering. We have to suffer because the brave Ukrainians are suffering. We have to do it for battalion Azov, Vita Zaverukha, Igor Kolomoysky, Rinat Akhmetov, Arsen Avakov, and Dmytro Yarosh. Pay up bitches, FUCK! Maybe Zelensky will play a tune with his penis at our funeral. Meanwhile enjoy the media feeding you Ukraine 24/7.

Also, in the light of absolute shambolic reporting that we have witnessed in recent days about the Ukraine crisis, we have to question the wisdom of calling every wealthy Russian guy an oligarch. Do you call Elon Musk or Jeff Bezos an oligarch? Do you journalists even know what the word means?

China Sent a Business Delegation to Crimea

Ukrainian Member of the Rada, Vadim Rabinovich wrote the following on his Facebook:

China’s reply to Ukraine’s stance on the “Motor Sich”.

The Chinese have long maintained their neutrality on the issue of Crimea. However, they have suddenly “changed their mind” and have dispatched there a representative committee headed by the members of the Beijing Export-Import Commission to “establish partnership”. The Chinese businessmen have, together with local authorities, agreed to establish contacts with local companies, they have presented an action plan in the area of tourism and health tours for Chinese citizens. They are also ready to invest in the hotel industry.

RIA Novosti reports the Crimean Minister of Economic Development confirmed a visit of Chinese businessmen took place.

Motor Sich is a Ukrainian factory that makes engines for airplanes. A large share in the company was recently sold by its private owners to Chinese investors. The Ukrainian government, likely under pressure from America, sanctioned the Chinese investors, and said this is a matter of national security.

It begs a question, whose national security? Ukraine’s or America’s? The governments of the East European countries seem to have made American economic and security issues their own. A perfect colonial relationship.
