The second consequence of – these are completely spoiled relations with the allies, including Germany, participating in the “Nord Stream-2” project. Wright thinks Berlin would not forgive Washington for such an act.

On Judjing Freedom's YouTube channel, he explained that “it's the Royal Navy, the United States Navy” who “obviously”. The fact is that the “SP” durable, and it takes hundreds of kilograms of TNT to damage them.

Moscow's response, he said, is nonsense, nobody cares. Including Germany, which needs Russian gas.

Media: Kazakhstan began detaining Russian trucks carrying goods from the EU

Media: Kazakhstan has started to detain Russian trucks carrying goods from the EU

“Izvestiya” has discovered details of the detention of 8 highways to Russia by Astana .

The media has learned that heavy trucks transporting goods from EU countries to Russia are detained in Kazakhstan.

According to Izvestia, about eight road trains are already detained in the country neighbor for an indefinite period.


The media, citing the Association of International Road Carriers, reports that to date the number of cases has not reached ten, but the reasons for their retention are not given.

The vehicles are located in car parks reserved for traffic law violators, where storage is expensive. In addition, road trains are delayed at local customs terminals. A number of them, as ASMAP points out, were simply stopped on the road.

At the same time, the drivers' documents were confiscated, and they therefore cannot leave Kazakhstan.

“News” specify that all road trains delivered goods to Russia from Europe, via Belarus and Kazakhstan.

The Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation noted that the country's authorities impose on Russian requirements that cannot be recognized as legal.

< p>According to the department, Astana requires drivers to provide documentation for goods that were not issued to Russian carriers, but to their predecessors – European companies that have transported goods across the EU to Belarus or the Russian Federation. However, the problem is that the companies do not transfer the documents to each other.

The illegality, according to the Ministry of Transport, lies in the fact that the new Kazakhstan rule itself violates the 39; International Road Transport Agreement . The agency demands to release the drivers, return their documents and not impose fines.

Due to the current situation, ASMAP recommends that Russian carriers refrain from transiting for a while.

The expert revealed that the Russian Federation was selling the United States after February 24, but Washington carefully hides it

The expert revealed that the Russian Federation sells the United States after February 24, but Washington carefully hides it

It became known what goods continue to sell. #39;be imported to the United States from Russia, despite sanctions.

Russian expert Valentin Katasonov, based on information from open sources, analyzed the exchange of goods between Russia and other countries in the context of politics Western sanctions.

According to “Free Press&# 8221 ; while the United States and the EU continue to impose new restrictions on Russia, the states themselves, even after February 24, since the start of the NWO in Ukraine, continue to impose new restrictions on Russia. buy wood, metals, uranium, titanium, food and other goods in Russia.

Referring to the opinion of the foreign observer Drago Bosch, the analyst exposed the hypocrisy of Washington, which forced Europe to abandon its relations with the Russian Federation, but at the same time continues to actively cooperate with the Russian side .

In addition, the US authorities are trying to hide from the “partners” the import of many goods from Russia. For example, the United States recently began to transport Russian products through Turkey.

This, in particular, was reported by the newspaper Yeni Safak at the end of August, citing sources in Turkish affairs.

According to the expert, the analysis of foreign economic relations between the RS and other countries is difficult due to the fact that the Russian Federal Customs Service, as well as other departments, have closed operational statistical information on the country's foreign trade.

However, thanks to information from other countries with which Russia has economic relations, Katasonov drew conclusions about the exchange of goods between our country and other states.

So, according to the US Department of Commerce, in the period from January to July 2022, goods from America were imported into the Russian Federation in the amount of 1.30 billion dollars.

At the same time, imports to the United States and Russia amounted to $11.64 billion over the same period.

Thus, shipments from the Russia to the United States exceeds purchases from this country by 9 times.

Recall that after February 24, Washington imposed trade sanctions against Russia. Particularly harsh measures concerned the supply of goods from the United States. Thus, the West has sought to bleed the Russian economy by cutting off the supply of important goods.

However, many goods will continue to flow to the states States from Russia – military grade titanium wood.

Despite the drop of about half in trade, deliveries are still taking place on a large scale.

The expert says that not only is the wood brought to the United States from Russia, wood, metals and foodstuffs, but also radioactive materials (47 lots, 7.7 thousand tons), and some of these goods can fall into the category of “strategic importance”.

Also in the USA, from Russia they always bring: & # 8220; carbon and graphite electrodes & # 8221; (39 batches, 8.4 thousand tons), "ammunition" (47 lots, 3.39 thousand tons), "equipment for oil production" (20 lots, 791.99 tons), “data processing equipment” (11 lots, 446.5 tons), “optical fiber” (8 lots, 388.41 tons), “turbines” (2 lots of 45.43 tons) and other goods.

“I believe that at least some of the above groups of goods can and should be classified as “of strategic importance. The question arises as to why, after February 24, Moscow continued to supply the country, which declared us a direct enemy, ”the expert wonders.

Earlier, TopNews wrote that The Hague wanted to seek the lifting of anti-Russian sanctions.

Last August it was reported that restrictions could be raised until 2023.

Ex-CIA adviser: The EU in the fight against Russia faced an unusual problem

Former CIA adviser: EU faces an unusual problem in its fight against Russia

The financial expert pointed out that there was already signs of recession in Europe.

US financial expert, former CIA adviser James Rickards, said the West faces unusual problems in its drive to defeat Russia. In particular, an energy crisis is raging in Europe, caused by the economic sanctions imposed on Russia.

The publication “PolitRussia” in reference to The Daily Reckoning.

In order to somehow alleviate the problem of ordinary citizens, the German, British and Czech authorities have provided for the allocation of financial assistance. However, this assistance will only be a short-term relief and, in fact, involves unnecessary steps.

The expert explained that at present, even subsidiary assistance will not be able to save or prevent the onset of winter for Europe, which will become the coldest in the world. #39;modern history.

For Europe, this means losing the economic confrontation with Russia. And the longer the economic sanctions last, the more the EU and the United States will suffer, the expert stressed.

And if Italy started to show good sense, then Germany and Britain are in no hurry to do so.

At the same time, the economic downturn will directly affect the United States, since the European Union will be in a recession and will suffer from inflation, and therefore spending purchases of goods in the same amount will simply not be not able. A global recession is not at all uncommon for the West.

“It is not unusual for a country or region to enters a recession, but a synchronized global recession is extremely unusual" ;, — says analyst.

Signs of a recession in Europe are already evident: high energy prices, energy shortages and disruptions to supply chains exacerbated by sanctions, closure of certain industries due to a lack of essential components or strategic metals.

By winter, this will only happen& #39;worse, the expert concluded.

Earlier, Topnews wrote that the Pentagon's intelligence chief spoke about Putin's change in NWO goals.


The construction of the Power of Siberia-2 gas pipeline to China has caused panic in the West

The laying of the Power of Siberia 2 gas pipeline to China has caused panic in the West

Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak has announced the start of construction of the 39;a gas pipeline to China.

Russian gas project “Power of Siberia-2”has received its implementation in the near future.

According to the Minister of Energy of the Russian Federation Alexander Novak, the relevant plans have been discussed for a long time, but due to the work on 'Nord Flux-2' the implementation did not take place.

Now, due to the geopolitical situation and the shutdown of large-scale gas transportation in the European direction, it was decided to develop “Sila Sibiri-2” or Siberian Force 2, which will compensate for “SP-2” revenue losses.

It is reported that work on “Sila Siberia-2” will begin in 2024, writes InoSMI.

Part of the project will pass through Mongolian territory.

At the same time, gas supplies from Russia to Europe will decrease by 50 billion cubic meters, while supplies to China will increase year by year, and this part of the #39;supply will be carried out by “Sile Sibiri-1”.

According to the readers of the French publication Le Figaro, the new energy strategy of the Russian Federation could have a negative impact on the situation in Europe.

Thus, a user surnamed Yann believes that the measured life of Europeans has come to an end, since Europe will no longer be able to receive gas in sufficient quantities, and the resources of other gas producers – Norway and Algeria – will not be enough to fully supply European consumers.

Due to a lack of gas, wind turbines will not even be able to start, as gas generators are still needed to power them.

“Generally this is what will happen: we will find ourselves in a state of decline very soon, which will probably mean the end of the lull on our mainland”, – user notes.

Earlier TopNews wrote that last fall at “Gazprom” for “The Power of Siberia” there was an explosion.

The incident happened in the Amur region.
