news from the story

Sanctions against Russia in general and the Urals in particular

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov met with President of Algeria Abdelmajida Tebbun, during the meeting the parties discussed the situation with gas. Tebbun assured that “Algerian gas will not be a substitute for Russian gas.” The Arabic-language edition of Rai Al Youm considers this a great achievement for Moscow.

“The country will be very true to its friendship with Russia. Algeria and Russia are moving towards establishing a deep strategic partnership,” the Algerian leader quoted the media as saying.

Separately, it was noted that in this case, Algerian gas will not be a substitute for Russian. Thus, if Russia were to impose a gas embargo on EU countries, these states would not be able to buy it from Algeria, which is one of the few countries (along with Qatar and Iran) able to compensate and compete with Russian gas. The reason for competition is large fuel reserves and proximity to European capitals.

Western countries, the United States, Japan and Canada have imposed tough sanctions against Russia due to the forced Russian special operation in Ukraine. EU countries are discussing a collective embargo on Russian oil and gas. The European Union will spend an additional 195 billion euros in the next five years to get rid of energy dependence on the Russian Federation. However, states that want to impose such restrictions have themselves suffered from this decision. Thus, a possible embargo on the supply of Russian energy resources will cause irreparable damage to the German economy: half a million Germans may lose their jobs. London is also having difficulty moving away from Russian raw materials, despite its relatively weak dependence on it. In addition, Western sanctions against Russia’s oil and gas industry have led to losses in the EU, while higher energy prices have already played into Moscow’s hands.
