    Imports, the Ruble and Oil

    Some info about Russia's petroleum exports and a chart showing import statistics.

    And something about the Ruble:

    Some fraying of EU unity about purchasing Russian petroleum, in hard currency and Rubles.

    For some reason I unloaded the chart twice in the previous comment and can't get rid of one of them.

    Russia is making more money from selling less oil, meaning Russia took in more money this year at this time than last year. The ruble hit 62 to the dollar, the ruble/euro is at a 7 year high. I like how the WSJ article shows an old sign with a rate much higher. The ruble went back to 66 because the central banks lower interest rates but overall Russia is doing great, prices on some foods are going down and people are shopping.

    This kind of thing is not happening in Russia, but it is in Britain.

    It couldn't be that some media organizations are lying about how Russia is doing could it? You know, to justify their own country's stupidity.

    IN Austria and Germany,METRO has rationed sunflower oil, fat for deep fryer,flour, garbage bags and alu foil.
    waht surprised me though, germany is a -wonder - collector of plastic waste. and aa lot is being exported to CHINA: Now the port of SHANGHAI is congested, there are not enough containers, freight costs have exploded.
    EVERY excuse is being used, of course also the situation around Ukraine.
    Is there ANYTHING that is still being produced in Germany or Austria?
    Another AUSTRIA strawberry grower is whining, cant harvest the strawberries.
    No Ukrainian workers...
    AUSTRIANS of course will not do that. THEY want to work 9 to 5, 1 h lunchbreak, tea or coffee break, smoke break. and of course Monday to Friday only. And because it is Strawberries that grow on the ground, it is backbreaking work, so working like that is of course IMPOSSIBLE: Not for them.let the -cheap labour- do it.
    And the Ukrainian -refugees - they have there? THESE refugees are not the kind that will do THAT type of manual labour....
    There is no greater treasure then pleasure....
