Sanctions: Norway loses $1 billion without access to Russian seafood market

Norway could not find a substitute for the Russian seafood market. This was stated in Oslo today by the extraordinary and plenipotentiary Ambassador of Russia Teimuraz Ramishvili. According to him, this issue is painful for the fishing industry of the kingdom.

In 2014, Moscow introduced retaliatory measures against the anti-Russian sanctions of the European Union and the EEA. Norway has lost about a billion dollars in revenues, as a result.

The minister of the fishing industry of the country stated that new markets were accessed in China, Japan and Vietnam. However, he stressed that he hopes that in the near future he will be able to “return Norwegian salmon to Russian stores.”

While Washington is busy twisting the arms of the elites to adopt certain policies – it is ordinary people who pay the price, in this case the Norwegian fishermen. In this light, the Norwegian government is not sanctioning Russia, which largely replaced imports through other suppliers, but its own people.

To be frank, nowadays 1 billion is peanuts for Norway. But still it it shows Russia’s stance. In the 30s Norway had to banish Trotsky from its soil when the USSR threatened to cut seafood imports demanding his expulsion.

You wouldn’t think so if you look at the price of fish in the UK!

It is sad, but it is true. Washington has twisted Bulgaria’s hands too for the sake of harming Russia, this, that they have hurt Bulgaria with it, they really, really do not care about. I recently read a poll in Bulgaria regarding the expulsion of Russian diplomats for the Scripal case. Well an order from the west was given to the Bulgarian government to expel Russian diplomats, however the prime minister B. Borisov realized this would be extremely negative for him and his party, and a meeting was held and they decided not to expel any. For me, even having the meeting about it should not have happened in the first place. So in that poll over 85% of the Bulgarian citizens were against it. Note in Bulgaria live about 10% Turks, who we all know why do not like Russia, and then there this 5% of low lives, who would vote for Satan to rule the world if there is such election. The good thing is I think, the average Bulgarian is pro-Russian, the bad thing is those 15% are very noisy in their Russophobia, and are often exploited by the west to damage the relations between both countries, and they have succeeded a lot in doing damage. How damaging the relations with Russia is good for Bulgaria, no one ever managed to give me a reasonable explanation for it to this very day. The truth is it is anti-Christ who always destroys, they (the Russophobes) are working for the Devil, and they don’t even realize it.

It seems US promoted sanctions against Russia, are not really harming Russia, but European allied countries. Difficult to believe US think-tanks do not see that fact. As they are messing with Europe, affecting them in serious way. Contributing to a climax of instability, through economic disruption and trade imbalances. I can add here mass immigration, huge deficit, and the unsustainable social policies and subsidies of the public health care system. Do not forget the constant threat known as ÔÇ£international terrorismÔÇØ. An ideal environment for an unprecedented crisis to take place. So Europe can be completely reshaped. Maybe as a true Federation of States. That could easily be linked as subservient regions to the US(A). The idea of a United States of Europe has been circulating for very long time.
