Kick off SWIFT? So what?

张丹枫 2 小時 ·

实际上,俄罗斯敢对西方傀儡乌克兰开战,事先早就做好两手准备,根本不担心西方制裁! 第一手准备当然就是紧紧捏着西方液化天然气供应的脖子。整个欧盟超过40%以上的液化天然气和石油供应,就在俄罗斯手中。西方逼得急了,普京就敢敢派兵进入乌克兰开战;西方敢制裁俄罗斯,俄罗斯就跟你鱼死网破,直接断掉天然气供应,让大部分的欧盟去人民断电断粮! 第二手准备更足够令俄罗斯没有后顾之忧!就在北京冬奥开幕前夕,普京和中国国家主席习近平正式签署了规模前所未有庞大的天然气供应合约;这项合约期限30年,总金额高达4000亿欧元!如果欧盟敢动俄罗斯,就丢掉欧元,改以人民币结算!

俄罗斯是全球第二大石油生产国及供应国,更是全球最大液化天然气出口国!形势所逼,强如美国在刚刚宣布的制裁俄罗斯名单中,也不敢加入石油天然气这一项,还是死死气的让俄罗斯留在SWIFT系统,以美元结算天然气和石油买卖。

这样看就明白了!俄罗斯背靠中国,还有许多前苏联的盟友支持,西方的所谓制裁,最多只能掀起一点波浪;根本不会对俄罗斯伤筋动骨,普京怕个毛!

Western sanctions on Russia won't work. EU leaders have been clear that the sanctions will harm their own economies, especially when it comes to energy.

Russia is the world's 2nd largest oil exporter and the largest natural gas exporter. Even the US bank sanctions, while tougher, still allow for energy payments.

Russia and China have built up our own version of the payments system, which will benefit from any extra Russian business that would be rerouted away from SWIFT. This is what the West doesn't want to see.

China has been Russia's top trading partner for 12 consecutive years. Trade between China and Russia reached a record high of $146.9 billion in 2021, up 35.8% year-on-year, according to China's customs agency. China's energy imports from Russia surged 47.4% to 334.29 billion yuan ($52.93 billion) last year.

Russia is also the world's top wheat exporter. China will soon become a big buyer of Russian wheat as well. China has been Russia's top supplier of imports, with smartphones, computers, telecommunications gear, textiles, clothing and electronics parts among top categories. More sanctions will only accelerate de-dollarization of China-Russia trade. Gazprom Neft, the oil arm of Russian gas giant Gazprom, has entirely moved away from the US dollar to China's yuan in settlements for fuelling planes in China. As the world knows, China has been one of the most sanctioned countries by the US since the New China was founded in 1949. Sanctions make us better and stronger!
