    This is the third time the EU has quietly lifted sanctions on Russia.

    First time was ammonia and fertilizer
    The second time was aluminium
    Third time is coal and timber

    Bloomberg reports that the EU is secretly lifting a ban on coal and timber from Russia.

    This is very easy to explain:  dollars and euros were printed in trillions out of thin air because of quantitate easing.  Yet neither coal nor gas/aluminium you can print so this only shows real value of money printed in ze west.

    The puzzle is Hungary given that they are still buying gas at contract prices. They should be making out like bandits.

    It is very easy to 3D print coal, if you are a developed technological industry, like the EU is, not some middle ages cavemen like the Russkie!

    Step one : take the coal.
    Step two : .... of wait ? scratch

    If the EU had a spine and actually stuck to their sanctions Hungary could become a heat and light and production centre for Europe... a gas hub for Europe... Hungary orders gas for everyone at their reduced rates and sells it on to the rest of Europe charging enormous transit fees obviously... the rest of the EU can pretend they no longer buy Russian gas... but I don't think Russia is going to tolerate that... I suspect the gas taps will be turned off to countries supplying weapons to Ukraine in the middle of winter where it has the strongest effect.

    We should check who owns these Hungarian plants. Maybe it is just "you can't do better than the mother is".

    You make an interesting point.

    Norway, as part of their single market deal, is not allowed to sell energy to its own companies or peoples at less than EU market prices, hence their plants shutting down and them having the most expensive petrol/diesel in Europe. Maybe it is the same for Hungary and it is the State pocketing the profit.

    Hungary are also limited in the amount they can get from Russia by their share of Turkstream capacity.

    Actually, it is the opposite, John.
    Hungarian govt has regulated and frozen the fuel prices already in March, at the level of some 400 forints.
    Now it does not impress much, but in the summer peak it was about 60 cents cheaper than in the other countries.
    Price was about the same everywhere, I was traveling in Austria, Czech, Slovenia, Hungary and Croatia those days.
    It brought a rage in the neighboring EU countries, as the offer was exclusive for Hungarian citizens, and all the visitors had to pay normal prices Laughing
    Gazprom supplies about 90% of a whole Hungarian demand, there was additional volume contracted in August, added to the existing contract. They are buying gas hell cheap at the moment, rumor say $280 a bcm.
    The latest actions made by the EU commission pretending to be anti corruption are nothing else than a punishment.

    When you don't benefit from it it is profiteer ism... when you are making the big money it is market forces dictating the value of the product and consumer demand elevating the price.

    Putin made an excellent observation in his speech at the former Ukrainian oblast returning to Russia ceremony. He noted that the
    west got trillions of dollars worth of stimulus from the breakup of the USSR. But that its fundamental economic crisis keeps on
    returning. We see this clearly today from the inflation and recession->depression developing in the west over the loss of Russian
    cheap energy and minerals.

    So apparently there is a new website set up in Russia where viewers can watch videos from Netflix for FREE.

    https://zetfix.online/



    Since the entire NATzO has declared an all out economic war against Russia, perhaps its time for Russia to disregard all copyright agreements from hostile NATzO companies russia

    Another good move is to launch persistent cyber attacks (with the aim of causing mass disruption and stealing tech/ blueprints) against companies like Microsoft and Apple who are working with NATzO governments to sabotage Russia's own tech sector. attack

    Economic situation of Europe is absolutely bleak. Winter has yet to arrive but people are already struggling to cope with the rising inflation. People are living paycheck to paycheck as they have to spend all their salaries on food purchase & energy bills. Crime rates are also getting higher as a byproduct of the economic disaster. This is the current situation of Austria which is a prosperous EU country. Now you can guess what the conditions of other less prosperous EU nations.

    By the way this woman is a survivalist & she has been making some really good survival contents for many years. But even she is also worried about the future. You can also read in the comments- people are actually storing firewood & buying wool blankets & also resorting to DIY tricks-methods to warm their houses for this winter.
    This is not some Russian propaganda.
