    Germany and Poland keep running Yamal pipeline in reverse flow mode and then complain Russia doesn't send gas through it to Germany.
    Silly buggers.

    Perhaps Poland needs to do some "virtual reverse flow" BS like Ukraine does. Laughing

    There's no problem for UK if it is banned from buying Russian gas through sanctioned Gazprombank: they can always resort to Bojo's LNF (Liquid Natural Farts) from his humongous arse.

    Which they are doing through a Russian bank which sets the exchange rate and the fees for the conversion from Euros to rubles... and denies that to a western bank or organisation.

    Further weakening the US dollar the Russians were happy to use before they were robbed and sanctioned.... they even bought US debt because it was profitable before the US started playing stupid games with its money and using it as a weapon.

    Take a fine Samurai sword with a super sharp blade and give it to a stupid teenager and after "cutting" everything in the garden with it including rocks and brick walls when he gives it to the next in line it is more blunt than a hammer.

    The thing is that a large portion of the wealth and power that family had was based on the sharpness of the sword, that might be used very occasionally to keep others in line but was never intended to be used like that... people are losing confidence.... should they accept money that is just printed when it is needed.... how much gold is there at fort knox?

    The Baltic chihuahuas were full of bravado about never using the ruble. They folded faster than a wet noodle.

    Latvia said they are not importing any Russian gas. Because the gas pipeline is under maintenance. Laughing
    They claim Russian gas is more expensive than LNG. Well, not for long. Once they compete with the gargantuan needs of countries like France, and eventually Italy and Germany the price will go up. Way up.

    The spot market price that Russia does not sell on if it can help it is way up, long term contract prices are very reasonable considering the situation... if the roles were reversed and Russia was dependent on western energy it would be cut off completely.

    We don't buy a single fart of Russki gas for rubles!
    There is a much better option, the biggest gas supplier in Europe, Switzerland!
    With just a small provision, and triple currency conversion!
    EU can't lose on that, agree?

    Gazprom has cut all ties to Gazprom Germania. The company is just an empty shell right now.

    One is quite serious.
    Gazprom Germania was a co-owner and operator of most of the gas storage infrastructure located in Germany.
    That includes Rehden with 4 bcm volume.
    Some other are co-owned in Czech as well.
    But you need two for a tango - as long as Russkies won't pump gas, those storages are just old mines or caverns with valves. You can bring all the population of Germany asking them politely to fart into it.
    So yeah, they have nationalized in a way some serious storage volumes, but have nothing to fill it.
    And the second end of a stick is, that all that storages were a co-ownership with BP and Wingas, and both have waste assets in Russia Twisted Evil
    Nationalization is a two end stick.
