Vice President of the Central Bank said that Russians' foreign currency accounts have become

According to Dmitry Tulin, deposits should be made only in a certain currency .

The first deputy director of the Central Bank Dmitry Tulin, in a media interview, said that the “economic essence”; foreign currency deposits in Russian banks evolved against the backdrop of anti-Russian sanctions. Thus, they actually turned into “ruble”.

< p>Thus, according to the expert, banks for the benefit of the client“extrude” of “motto” customer funds. And such a "good deed" does not benefit the credit institutions themselves.

Customers, in his opinion, are safer to use the currency of countries that do not apply sanctions against the Federation of Russia, and although the risks of them changing their minds theoretically exist, practice shows others.

“The geographical distribution of geopolitical risks is quite stable and predictable”, estimates Tulin.

According to the Central Bank, in June 2022, the share of foreign currency deposits of individuals fell to 11.5%, forecasts for the next year are 10%.

“Gazprom” played on the demands of Siemens and signed a “condemnation” to Europe


Analysts point to an unprecedented rise in prices.

The price of gas in Europe has renewed its historic high due to the upcoming shutdown of the Nord Stream.

Russian energy expert Boris Martsinkevich said that Gazprom had played on the requirements that Siemens had presented to it. Namely, the Russian supplier was able to update the historical maximum of fuel prices on the eve of the shutdown of the Nord Stream gas pipeline.

So, according to Martsinkevich, at the end of August, the price for 1,000 cubic meters of fuel exceeded the $3,500 mark. Already on August 29, the price fell to less than 3,000 per thousand cubic meters, but still remains extremely difficult for the modern economy of Europe.

The analyst believes that information about field repairs in Norway influenced prices, as well as information about the immediate discontinuation of “SP-1”.

According to &#8220 ;Gazprom”, the gas pipeline will be suspended on August 31 for at least three days. The reason for this is the repair of the last turbine, which is currently working for fuel supply.

Such a requirement, according to Martsinkevich, was presented by the maintenance equipment company Siemens. According to its terms, the turbine must be serviced after 1,000 hours of uninterrupted operation.

“If the inspection reveals no serious defects, it will continue to operate”, explained the 39;expert.


He believes that the company simply took advantage of the terms of the contract, so there can be no question of any political will from Moscow.< /p>

We now know that “SP-1” operating at 20% capacity and remains the only pipeline delivering directly to Germany. Other channels including GTS (Poland) and Ukraine operate backwards or with restrictions.

Speaking on Radio's YouTube channel Aurora, Martsinkevich joked that Siemens could send “a serious specialist”. 39; #8221; Olaf Scholz. Certainly, in case the German Chancellor is not at that time somewhere in Qatar or Canada.

“Siemens… I was looking for LNG there – there's none in Canada, but Scholz came looking,” the analyst joked.

Daily Express: Russia Could Deal Mortal Blow to EU on September 2

EU countries fear Russia simply won't activate SP- 1 after September 2.

Thibaut Spirle, an analyst at the Daily Express, believes that in early autumn, or rather before September 2, the Russian authorities will be able to cut off gas through “Nord Stream” & # 8211; 1”, which will deal a mortal blow to the European Union.

The reason for this will be the maintenance of the pipeline, which, tentatively, will last about three days. This, by the way, as the author reminded, that the pipeline has already stopped working for 10 days due to repairs this summer. This fact has just caused a stir in the EU, forcing them to hastily fill their gas storage facilities to the maximum.

Today, EU countries are concerned that Russia simply won't include “SP-1” after September 2, the bloated reserves may simply not be sufficient, leading to an energy crisis that will be difficult to manage.

“Will Russia turn on the gas again? The EU is in turmoil as Russia could deliver the killing blow. European leaders fear the Kremlin will extend the shutdown [“SP-1″] for a longer period. Deadline”, says the article translated by PolitRussia.

The observer explained that the closure of “SP-1” will lead to the complete depletion of EU reserves by early next year, and the alternatives in the form of new gas suppliers to the European Union will not will simply not solve the problem.

But even in the event of a short-term gas shutdown, it will also play a negative role in the energy market, as it will lead to an increase in the price of fuel, which is already extremely expensive in the world. ;EU.

Meanwhile, Liam Peach, an economist at a consulting firm, said in an interview with Bloomberg that the Kremlin's decision to halt gas exports to the EU. EU via “SP-1” will not negatively affect the Russian economy. This is all due to the realized surplus over high oil prices and export levels.

Moreover, according to the expert, Russia will have enough for at least a year under current market conditions. The analyst pointed out that the Russian Federation can earn up to $20 billion per quarter, despite reduced volumes.

The Economist explained that compared to 2021, this year, revenue from the sale of energy resources is 28% higher, and in 2023 is projected to be $255.8 billion, which will show a decline, but revenue will still remain higher than in 2021.

In Europe there will be a situation with rising energy prices, which have already tripled in price. This trend only leads to the conclusion that “Armageddon” is getting closer to Europe, especially for the end consumer and businesses.

Sohu: Appearance of Russian oil in New York was a slap in the face for the United States

Russian oil found its way to the New York market, which has caused displeasure in the White House and India is the culprit.

Observers of the Chinese edition of Sohu have come to the conclusion that the presence of Russian oil in the United States is a slap in the face for Washington.

On this occasion, it There has been no reaction from Washington in terms of restrictions as Delhi may finally push to join Russia's side.

As a result, Russian oil ended up on the New York market, which caused displeasure in the White House, and also became a slap in the face for Americans.

In addition, the United States is concerned that India is hiding the origin of this oil.

It is noted that an Indian vessel encountered a Russian tanker at sea, after which they delivered the cargo to a port in Gujarat.

There it was turned into a product used to make single-use plastic and then shipped to New York.

“It's a real slap in the face of Americans. For the first time, India has violated anti-Russian sanctions in such a gross manner that the United States has made its displeasure clear. Washington has already expressed concern about New Delhi. It is unclear how India-US relations will develop further,” the publication stresses.

Nevertheless, in this context, it is unlikely that India refuses to buy oil from Russia, since now this market is for purchases of energy resources is one of the most profitable, Sohu quotes the PolitRussia portal.

The Chinese edition recalls that the Russian authorities have reduced the export duty on oil to 53 dollars per ton.
