Russia Cuts Off Finland Electricity Since They Didn’t Get Paid

Russia will halt the power supply to Finland on Saturday. According to Reuters, Russian utility Inter RAO will suspend the power supply to Finland due to non-payment since May 6th.

The Finnish President and Prime Minister announced they will apply to NATO right away. Turkey doesn’t want them. Turkey, however, has torn loyalties.

“We are forced to suspend the electricity import starting from May 14,” said RAO Nordic, a Finland-based subsidiary of Russia’s Inter RAO, adding that it “is not able to make payments for the imported electricity from Russia.” They want to get paid in rubles.

Fingrid said “There is no threat to the adequacy of electricity in Finland,” noting that power from Russia accounted for only 10% of Finland’s total consumption.

The Finnish grid company said it can replace the Russian electricity supply by importing more electricity from Sweden.

Sweden and Finland are both looking to join NATO.

REUTERS REPORT

Reuters reported that Russia will stop exporting electricity to Finland beginning today at 2200. It’s only for “the time being” the Russians say until they can get paid.

“There is no threat to the adequacy of electricity in Finland,” the grid said. The power from Russia accounted for some 10% of Finland’s total power consumption.

They can also replace some of it with “domestic production” or with imports from Sweden.

Russia promised retaliation against Finland, but this probably isn’t it.

That would explain why Finland yesterday wanted to join NATO…

This is just the beginning of sanctions against the Finns for threatening to violate the carefully crafted treaty and policies that ended the Russian Finland conflict in the 1940’s. Mannerheim I assure you would not approve of joining NATO, especially a NATO led by the geniuses who masterminded the Afghan debacle. Finland gets 100% of its gas from Russia. That, I assure you will be next. Hope they have plenty of firewood cut and stacked.

I bet the contract does not specify payment in rubles. Russia unilaterally change the rules to force a default. You disparage the Finns based on that, good one Ivan.

If biteme hadn’t told ukraine they could join nato russia would not have invaded. Joey was just looking out for his retirement fund but poked the bear. We would not allow canada or mexico to accept russian military and advisors on our borders either. There is a treaty and if you do not honor your treaty this is what happens, everything is on obiden.

This just shows how foolish it is for a Country not to be self sufficient. As soon as Traitor Joe went to war on the Petroleum Industry he should have been Impeached. Anyone supporting Traitor Joe should be considered at best Un-American. Make no doubt about it, America is already in a war for it’s survival against Tyrants who stole the 2020 Elections to get into Power..

Globalism and it’s interdependence makes the World a Very Dangerous Place because it creates a World of Mod Rule Democracy run by a handful of Oligarchs. Over the the last two years, we saw how the American Oligarchs were able mobilize the Deep State Bureacracy to scare 80% of America in summission over what was just a very bad Flu. Today America is primarily a Nation of Ball-less Wonders!

People are scared to resist because they are worried the Bureaucrats might cut off their electricity. Welcome to the Green New Deal!
