The Lichterfelde gas-fired power plant in Berlin. Archival photoMOSCOW, 26 May. The EU is increasingly suffering from the energy crisis, the population and businesses are panic-stricken, while Europe recognizes that the rejection of Russian energy resources will cause even more harm, according to an article by the Chinese Xinhua News Agency. Large-scale indiscriminate Western sanctions against Russia have had a serious negative impact on energy, food and society, and on the European economy. Restrictions have become a “heavy burden” that Europeans have to bear as tensions in the field of energy supply and food security increase, while the United States, as the initiator of conflict and restrictions, watches the fire from the opposite bank and reaps its benefits, the article says.In Germany, they found a mistake in the anti-Russian sanctions of the West “European society is sinking deeper into the energy crisis, businesses and the population are seized with panic … Moreover, sanctions against Russia are not turning out in the best way for her. The situation in the European Union is becoming more complicated day by day, and its response do not solve the problem at all and only benefit the US government and energy companies,” the agency emphasizes. Companies from various European countries shared with Xinhua reporters about “how much anti-Russian sanctions hurt them.” For example, the company Zwiesel Kristallglas, located in the south-east of Bavaria and famous for high-quality glass products, is heavily dependent on Russian gas imports, and therefore suffered greatly after the escalation of the crisis in Ukraine. “Our electricity costs have increased by about five times. Without a significant increase in prices, we will not be able to survive,” said Andreas Fas, head of the supply chain department. Xinhua notes that the dilemma faced by this production reflects the current energy situation in European Union. The head of the French transport company, Cyril Piola, is concerned about the sharp rise in fuel prices, as a result of which fuel costs have increased by 17,000 euros (about a million rubles – ed.) over the past two months compared to the same period last year. is already becoming a luxury item, many businesses and people are in the same situation as Piola. The sharp rise in energy prices under the influence of anti-Russian sanctions affects all industries,” the agency emphasizes. In addition to inflationary pressures, the European economy is facing more serious problems in production and supply chains. Thus, the German Association of the Steel Industry warned that without Russian energy resources, steel production in Germany would be suspended, which would lead to serious problems in the construction industry, metallurgy and electrical engineering, the automotive industry and other industries, the article says. Western countries are facing severe economic problems – rising prices for energy resources and a surge in inflation due to the imposition of sanctions against Russia after the start of a special operation to demilitarize and denazify Ukraine. The measures mainly affected the financial sector and the supply of high-tech products, but in Europe they began to call louder to reduce dependence on Russian energy resources, and many brands announced their withdrawal from the country. The Kremlin called these restrictions an economic war, but noted its readiness for such a development of events. 66340563b005239baf12a4562cd987bd.jpg” />Geopolitika: Europe will fall apart and pay a high price for the Ukrainian crisis
