MOSCOW, September 30 – Novosti. Despite the incidents at Nord Stream, as well as the expected introduction of a ceiling on gas prices from Russia, the EU will have to fully accept the conditions of the Kremlin on the issue of fuel purchases, Sabah author Melih Altinok said.
In his opinion, the United States is behind the state of emergency on the Russian pipeline , which openly “hit the liver” of its European allies, and are also responsible for the failed energy policy of Brussels to abandon Russian energy. The Turkish journalist also added that the head of the European Commission , Ursula von der Leyen , sets conditions for Moscow as if Europe is selling fuel to Russia, and not vice versa.
“If you need energy, you will pay Putin, the only seller you provoked, the price he wants. And not even in euros, which are rapidly melting against the US dollar, but in rubles, as Germany agreed . And then you You will pray that Biden, who during his recent speech was looking in the hall for Congresswoman Jackie, who died a month ago in a car accident, and asking where she was, does not hit you the way he hit Germany,” Altinok said.
Western countries are faced with rising energy prices and a surge in inflation due to the imposition of sanctions against Moscow and the policy of abandoning Russian fuel. Against the backdrop of a rise in the price of fuel, primarily gas, the industry in Europe has largely lost its competitive advantages, which also affected other sectors of the economy. Also , the United States and European countries are facing record inflation in decades.
