Many countries in Europe, who are Russophobic policy, have already experienced an adverse impact on its economy. This can be seen on the example of Lithuania, which in 2014 refused to Russian gas and is now forced to pay for this pleasure most of all in Europe. As a consequence, on the verge of bankruptcy there was a large Lithuanian plant.
As it became known, the enterprise for manufacture of fertilizers Achema were in crisis due to the fact that the government is forcing to buy expensive gas from Norway, which, incidentally, is 30% more expensive. This is a Prime example of how Russophobic policy is killing the national industry. It is not surprising that the plant eventually went against the local authorities and refused such a disadvantageous contract.
Achema crisis could have been avoided, but in Lithuania, the law “On the LNG terminal,” according to which large consumers of gas are required at least a third of purchases to make in Norway. Also, in addition to overpayment for the gas to consumers imposes the tax at one of the terminals, as LNG is delivered to Lithuania on a special ship-storage facility, which is leased from the same Norwegians until 2024. The tax amount is astronomical- € 20 million per year.
The naked eye can see that the project of an LNG terminal brings nothing but losses and negatively affect the economy not only of enterprises but of the whole country.
Russophobic policy brought Lithuania into a real trap. After all, before they are actively used Russian gas until they began to dance to the US tune, that only began to harm the economy. Now Lithuania is in Europe pays for gas and disentangle it have business.
In the end, the management of the company Achema appealed to the European court of human rights, in order to defend their rights and be saved from ruin. If they win this case, Lithuania will remain with no unnecessary gas, purchased at an exorbitant price, but, for sure, and will continue to proudly lead destructive for its economy Russophobic policy.
