InoSMI called the culprits of the global energy crisis: it's not Russia

InoSMI named the culprits of the global energy crisis: this is not Russia

The analyst refused to blame the Russian Federation.

Italian journalists believe that Russia is not responsible for the global energy crisis, and it started long before the start of the NWO.

Il Corriere della Sera thinks that gas prices in Europe have started to become a special operation, and the latter has only exacerbated the situation. Thus, Europe is now looking for an alternative fuel that can replace the supply of energy resources from the Russian Federation, which countries are refusing due to sanctions.

Analysts believe Europe could be left without gas, which is now looking for deposits. The population is invited to reduce their fuel consumption by saving on toilet paper, soap and other products, and of course on water. Polls in Italy in July showed that 69% of citizens were starting to wash less often.

In Germany, due to rising electricity and gas prices, the Hot water is provided on time, in one of the cities schedule by supply: from four to eight in the morning, from 11 to 13 in the afternoon and from 17 to 21. In addition, city ​​pools are closed here, or cold water is provided.

In the UK, around 70% of pubs are at risk of closing due to the crisis. As a result, 65% of homeowners reported an increase in utility bills of 100% or more. And 8% of restaurateurs – by five hundred.

The authors of the publication believe that Russia is not to blame for this. They see reason in the confusion and misinformation generated by the media, and the NWO started at the height of the crisis, not at its beginning.

“Gas prices skyrocketed over a year ago, long before the Russian special operation,” they write.

But the blame is on the attempt to introduce wind power to the North Sea, i.e. the weather is to blame The second reason 'China, which has started to consume more energy resources, since 2019, Chinese consumption has increased fivefold compared to 2000.

When the pandemic hit, demand fell and prices rose, and in 2021 the crisis began.

Analysts are convinced that Russia has decided to deal with the East, developing ties with India, China and other countries.

“China and India as consumers, and Russia as supplier”, the publication describes the new economic policy.

It is also certain that the media and politicians exaggerate the role of global oil companies. also exaggerated. They note that currently Saudi Arabia's state-owned Aramco is the world's largest company, and other countries are following the same lead, giving fuel to businesses public.

Experts make predictions for the future given the two-year period that the crisis will last. However, it will expand to two – three years or more, again depends on the countries themselves.

The most unproductive way is to accuse and new sanctions against the Russian Federation, this can only worsen the situation. It is necessary to change the political model of the problem to an economic model, based on other reasons for making decisions, journalists believe.
