The unimaginable will happen to oil prices in the world - Medvedev

USA (, - Today, December 5, the decision to ban the supply of Russian oil at a price above $60 per barrel came into force in the West. Let them stock up on schnapps, wadded blankets and boilers, the unimaginable will happen to prices. This was stated by Deputy Head of the Security Council of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev.

“These actions of our ‘friends’ remind me of a crowd of burghers who have been on a spree, who, having eaten schnapps with sausages and beer, climb into ice water for the first time,” he wrote in his Telegram channel. - We want to cool off. Some of them will quickly sober up and jump out. Some will learn to swim in cold water, but very poorly (it is difficult to learn in an ice-hole). And some will sink. And they will be buried, raising dreary toasts that they fell in an unequal battle with the Russian bear and General Moroz. Well, there they go! What is good for a Russian is death for a German.”

As the deputy head of the Security Council emphasized, "it's simply amazing how humanity likes to constantly step on the same rake, trying to regulate prices to please the political situation."

“These attempts always end with the disappearance of the product or the rise in prices for it. After all, nobody canceled the law of value. So it will be with oil. Of course, it will not disappear, but the unimaginable will happen to prices. Which, by the way, no one knows for sure, but I really want to try to get into cold water, so that later I can show off my decisiveness in the elections. One thing is clear - there will be no good for the consumer, that's for sure. So let them stock up on schnapps, quilts and water heaters. Still ahead, winter has just begun, ”he commented on the decision of Western countries.

On February 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a special military operation in Ukraine in response to the request of the leaders of the Donbass republics for help. After that, the US, EU, UK, as well as a number of other states imposed sanctions against Russian individuals and legal entities. The EU has already approved eight packages of restrictive measures against Russia. In addition, the West has increased arms supplies to Kyiv by billions of dollars.
