Russia is at war with a nation and the west is supporting that nation to wage war and kill Russians. The west seizes all of Russia’s FX reserves, even $100b in gold, and then balk at the idea of Russia demanding payment for gas in Rubles.
What sort of hubris is this?
Do they believe Russia should just lay down and roll over — starve to death, permit NATO to takeover Moscow and subjugate their people with CRT classes and gender identity freedoms?
Markets are beginning to sour, but nearly reflective of the potential dangers of having the petrol-dollar destroyed. While it’s true, Europe is making arrangements for alternative sources of gas for 2023 — it’s also true they cannot import all of that LNG without incurring immense expenses. One could argue the people of Europe are suffering more than Russians — who now have to deal with the pangs of toxic western culture removed from their airwaves and shopping malls.If you enjoy the content at iBankCoin, please follow us on Twitter
