Rosneft Head Sechin Explains, Europe Is Committing Energy Suicide

June 18, 2022 (EIRNS)—As the trans-Atlantic world rushes headlong into Prince Charles’s “vast military-style campaign” for Global Britain’s “fundamental economic transition,” things don’t appear to be going so well for the Green fanatics. Charles’s call at last fall’s COP26 meeting in Glasgow for a “war-like footing” to implement global green suicide, by marshalling the “strength of the global private sector, with trillions at its disposal,” appears to be underway—however, without the population of Russia, China, India and a few billion others. It would appear that Charles may have been caught off-guard by recent events in Ukraine, given that the windmills and solar panels do not exist to replace the hydrocarbons from Russia after the brilliant sanctions campaign by his mother’s government. It is possible that those agents of his government, who crossed Russia’s red line by pushing Ukraine towards NATO and giving Zelenskyy the green light to say that Ukraine should have nuclear weapons, did not consult him or his mother before acting. Or, it could be possible that the brilliant economic and financial advisors of the City of London had intended to sanction Russia to its knees, thereby allowing Her Majesty to borrow a tiny bit of Russia’s resources until its green utopia could be realized. Whatever may be the case, the green transition didn’t quite happen in time, and the trillions of the global private sector to make that happen also appear to be vanishing.

Igor Sechin, the head of Russian oil giant Rosneft, commented on the sanctions and green policy at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF). Sechin said that “Europe is committing energy suicide by imposing sanctions on Russia.” European states that have gone along with this policy, he said, “lose their identity and competitive power to the U.S.” Sechin is likely referring to the fantasies that Russian oil and gas will be replaced by U.S. liquefied natural gas (LNG), which relevant infrastructure will take years to build. In the meantime, European states, including Poland, are encouraging their citizens to gather wood to burn in lieu of Russian oil and gas—perhaps in the mud huts they will also soon be encouraged to build.

According to an article in RT, Sechin also said that the sanctions have done away with the “green transition,” as the European leaders no longer need it for “market manipulation, since more blunt and radical approaches are being applied.” He noted the fraud of what he called the “green rhetoric,” given that those nations partaking in sanctions still access Russian resources through end-run methods.

Perhaps the wood gathered in the forests of Europe may soon end up being fashioned into pitchforks, and the political class will then emerge from their British-directed fantasies.
