Your words tell me you have almost zero knowledge of economics.


Please explain to me what is going on here:

Well, depreciation in Rubble is actually good for Russian business because Russian biggest companies are mostly paid in Dollars and Euros but they still pay to the government in Rubbles. So it is good for Gazprom and other giants.

Thats a blogs opinion its Germany thats pushing for the sanctions and yes Merkell is fully aware it effects the German economy. Russia is doing severe damage to international relations at this point. Countries that were favorable now consider Russia a rogue state and unreliable.

So true youll wind up broke by the end of the week. But more importantly anyone can write for them its not hard. What i found the funniest is you can tell it was written by a Putin fan since they are convinced germany is doing sanctions because there forced to. But Germans overwhelmingly support sanctions against Russia they see them as a direct threat to Europe. Thats why they have been leading the fight to further sanctions. Usually its the UK that takes the lead in Europe but Merkel jumped in and took over. Shes even got Obama following her lead. I guess Margret Thatcher has been replaced and now Merkel is leading Europe just like Thatcher used to. I think she was the wild card Putin didnt count on when he started this land grab he figured Germans like us they wont do anything.

Are you kidding? What you wrote is complete bull# and it is clear that you are not from Europe. German business is furious because they are losing with sanctions against Russia and with sanctions against them. Siemens even said they will boycott sanctions or move their headquarters from Germany. German population doesn't want sanctions against Russia and supports Putin (by almost every research made in Germany) more than Obama and US.

So again. What you wrote is complete BS. Come to Europe and see for yourself or just ask people from Germany.

Just wait till reality kicks in in Germany, the people in Germany have been overly optimistic because they haven`t been hurt by the crisis till very recently (I know this from first hand), but will be also from now on. Once economy gets hurt more and more, mood will shift with it. ...the vast majority isn`t supporting it, only a small majority atm., and this was right after the MH17 crash (with anti-Russia propaganda still in full force in Germany).

Take in the mood shifting about who`s responsible for the MH17 crash and EU/US involvement in Ukraine, economy going downhill, and support will go down to.

And don`t count on much support for the US. Only 35% of Germans see US as reliable partner, so the support for US is also weak and means shift can come easily.

But more likely, they will simply sell more to other EU countries.

No way, too much food already over here, prices are dropping already on fruit and vegetables, workers are getting support from our government, so it`s a double whammy :

"The situation is quite dangerous … because the blockade not only targets Lithuania but the whole EU. It would be difficult for producers to re-direct their exports toward the West because markets there are already awash with their own local goods that are now not going to Russia," Stancikas was quoted by Russian news agency RIA Novosti as saying.

So the food will go to China to replace the food Latin American countries will sell to Russia for higher prices.

EU supports fruit and vegetable growers

The European Commission allocates 125 million euros to reduce surplus of fruit and vegetables. Producers can through their organizations rely on the fund.

Growers and farmers may distribute their products for free, by destroying them or by harvesting immature product earlier. The goal is that fewer products come on the market to prevent further prices falls.

The fund was set up because of the Russian boycott. The EC has earmarked 400 million euros for "acute market disruptions." Until the end of November, 125 million is available.
