Russia can stop gas exports to Europe through sanctions

on Tue Aug 08, 2017 10:48 am
Russia can stop gas exports to Europe through sanctions

The law on new US sanctions against Russia may create difficulties in servicing existing and under construction Russian gas pipelines, as well as causing a temporary suspension of gas supplies from Russia to Europe.

This conclusion was reached by analysts of the international rating agency S & P, reports Russian edition of RBC.

At the same time, according to experts, in the new US law on sanctions against Russia there are no direct restrictions on Russian pipeline projects for the supply of energy. This, according to analysts, gives Trump and his allies the freedom to act in the application of sanctions in each particular case.

First of all, we are talking about limiting the financing from export-import banks, as well as imposing a ban on the supply of equipment and currency transactions.

In addition, sanctions may restrict access to the technologies or services necessary to complete the construction of the North Stream 2 pipelines and the Turkish Stream.

Recall that on August 2, US President Donald Trump signed new sanctions against Iran, Russia and North Korea . The same day the document came into force.

It should be noted that American sanctions will apply to all those who cooperate with Russia. Therefore, a number of countries have criticized the document.

In particular, the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that it sees a threat to European firms in new US sanctions against Russia.

Russian expert predicted revolutionary sentiment in the Russian Federation

Valery Fedorov, General Director of the All-Russian Center for the Study of Public Opinion (VTsIHD), believes that in the Russian Federation, revolutionary sentiments may soon become active.

Tass reports.

According to Fedorov, the economic crisis has ended in Russia, but there has been no widespread economic recovery, therefore, there is a new phase in Russia - "insecurity in the future", which is "dangerous", since "revolutionary sentiment does not appear in a crisis situation, but When the crisis is over and it's getting better. "

"In this situation, people cease to tolerate and begin to demand. And in this situation there is a request for change," - said the expert, adding that "today the demand for stability goes to the periphery."

Valery Fedorov noted that today the political struggle in the Russian Federation "goes for whose image the wins will win."

"This is a struggle for the future now unfolding and it will soon end in the final phase, because after six months we have the election of the Russian president. Moreover, the issue of the 2024 elections will also largely be resolved by the 2018 election," the head of the HCTS said.
