Since last week, Ukrainian troops raid the nuclear power plant, attacks that represent an act of nuclear terrorism, according to Russia, whose deputy director of the press department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Iván Ne-chá-yev, reiterated the accusations against kyiv on Thursday.

Ne-chá-yev warned that the actions of the Ukrainian regime could cause a catastrophe, of a far greater scope than the consequences of the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant.

From Washington, the Russian Embassy warned that the Ukrainian Armed Forces do not disdain any means in their eagerness to discredit Russia, by creating a real threat to nuclear security not only of the Ukrainian territory itself, but also of Europe.

In a statement, the diplomatic representation pointed out that it has paid attention to the disinformation campaign in the United States media, to attribute to Russia artillery attacks on the territory of the Zapo-ro-zhie nuclear power plant, when the real situation it is exactly the opposite.

The Russian embassy in the US capital denounced that the Ukrainian bombardments against the plant are deliberate and are not the first provocation of kyiv in installations with radioactive danger.

The mission called on the UN and the International Atomic Energy Agency to condemn the criminal actions of kyiv and take immediate measures to prevent provocations at Ukrainian radioactive risk facilities.

The columnist for the American outlet ‘Bloomberg’, Javier Blas, He pointed out that the oil production of the Slavic nation returned in July to the levels observed before the Russian special military operation in Ukraine, by extracting about ten point eight million barrels per day.

Blas stressed that Russia has found new customers for the approximately one million barrels a day that European oil refineries have stopped buying, due to self-sanctions against Moscow.

The energy and raw materials specialist said that most of Russia’s crude now goes to Asia, particularly India, as well as Turkey and other places in the Middle East.

Blas stated that since Brent crude, a reference in Europe, is around 100 dollars per barrel, Russia can sell its at lower discounts, and the country receives enormous funds, so the energy sanctions against it do not work.

In addition, Blas highlighted the political success of Russia, since in March and April Western politicians thought that OPEC, led by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, would abandon its oil alliance with Russia, but the opposite has happened.

According to Blas, despite the tour of the president of the United States, Joe Biden, to the Middle East, the Russian president, Vladimir Putin, maintained his influence within the so-called OPEC alliance plus other exporters outside the bloc.

The columnist for the American media ‘Bloomberg’, emphasized that Russia can afford to forgo revenue by restricting sales of natural gas to Europe, while the old continent prepares for a massive increase in retail energy prices and a possible shortage.

The specialist ruled that Vladimir Putin is winning the energy battle, and commented that, while in public, European governments remain determined to get rid of Russian energy, in private, they must be acknowledging the difficulties of a position that threatens to hit their economies.
