They said they need just 9 billions PER month to balance budget. And potentially 750bilion for reconstruction.

Ukraine GDP was 180 bilion. 

According to Russian Forbes war cost Russian budget 400 milion per day. Even using as much old weapons as possible and just all 200.000 soldiers.

Take your conclusions.

 

 

 

 

400 million of what? Bucks/EUR - no way. Rubles? OK.

The next chapter.

If I understand correctly tweet by von der Leyen.

Maidan was about choosing European Union instead of Russia.

So in Aprill EU have them 1 bilion euro donation.

For next two months Germany simply blocked additional 8 billions.

So today they finally made a decision.

Check Twitter of von der Leyen.

So Leyen is boasting  boasting that additional maybe note 8 but still 1.59 was given.

Twitteratii are celebrating.

Its written something Like that this additional help od 1.59 bilion euros  INCLUDING 1 bilion grom Aprill.

Nice wording I must say.

This is Western Europe against Russia over Ukraine.

It will help rebuild infrastructure and resume services. And support energy, transport and education projects for the future.

Seems kinda premature fixing what they haven't finished breaking yet...

In fact, the current situation scares me a lot

Personally I hope the gas will still flow to Europe.

Only with all due respect I am terrified also of people's stupidity.

As you know, Gazprom cut off supplies to my home Poland.

Only if Poland has handed over 480 tanks to Ukraine as of today, apart from assessing whether it did the right thing or not, would it not be a little bit absurd in such a situation to still send gas to Poland?

Gazprom cut Poland off after it nationalized their share of the Yamal-Europe pipeline (49%?) I think the plan was to get the gas from Germany via reverse flow and pretend it wasn't Russian, Ukraine-style.

Shouldn't you be out collecting twigs? Apparently, your government just legalized it. (I sense another brilliant plan brewing right there)

So, you've got no tanks left? Maybe they should be worrying about that next :)

~$12 billion a month, more than it costs to run the entire Ukraine? ~60K per service member involved? This seems like a lot. Still under the $20 billion oil and gas windfall...

Kyiv has launched a counteroffensive in Ukraine's south, as it attempts to recapture the strategically vital port city of Kherson. The city fell to the Russians on March 3rd, after its defenders fled without putting up a fight. The last few weeks have seen increased activity by Ukrainian forces and partisans operating in Kherson province.

Now it appears they have succeeded in scoring a major victory against Putin's "demoralised" forces on their march to Kherson.

 
 

Around 1,000 Russian soldiers are reported to be trapped in Vysokopillya, having failed to evacuate in time.

Their only possibility of retreat is along a corridor that is under Ukrainian fire control.

Michael McKay, a Ukraine expert, tweeted: "The Russian invaders are trapped in Vysokopillya in the north of Kherson region.

 

"Ukrainian defenders liberated Pot'omkyne on June 30 and had control of Ol'hyne by July 5.

"The Russians didn't withdraw the garrison from Vysokopillya and failed to reinforce it. Now they're doomed."

Oleksiy Arestovych, an adviser to the Ukraine President, said Vysokopillya would become the Russians' very own Ilovaisk.

Ilovaisk is a city in the Donetsk province, where a deadly and notorious battle took place in 2014 between Ukrainian forces and pro-Russian separatists.

Hundreds of Ukrainian soldiers were killed as they tried to retreat after being cut off by the Moscow-backed fighters.

It was the biggest loss of life suffered by Ukraine's army during the 2014 war.

Arestovych said in a YouTube interview: "There, in fact, is a repetition of Ilovaisk for Russian troops.

"Not two thousand, but more than one thousand. They are in tactical encirclement.

"Yesterday there was an attempt to break through, but it was stopped by our fire.

"The Russian command is demoralised by what is happening in Kherson region."

He added: "We have a great temptation to bury them all in this cauldron."

However, he hoped the Russians would be given the opportunity to surrender and "stay alive".

Ukrainian military officials are confident that a turning point has ben reached in the war after the delivery of US supplied HIMARS.

As for impact of sanctions I read an article by famous economist Adam Tooze and another one by Ben Aris from bne intellinews how Russia prepared for confrontation with West over Ukraine for last 15 years.

They started just after Putin speech in Monachium in 2007.

You can probably still found it in net.

If we talk about capping Ural at 40-60 according to Kommersant today it looks like this

https://www.kommersant.ru/doc/5480516?from=top_main_9

How much is a Russian barrel now The price of Urals rose in July, it is unknown how

Quote

 

According to Kommersant, the price of Urals oil in July could be much higher than previously thought. According to Argus, as of July 20, Urals' discount to Brent more than halved to $15 per barrel. Back in April, it exceeded $30 per barrel and has not been revised since then, since data on real transactions with Urals were not available. Other price agencies Platts and Reuters still estimate the discount in a fundamentally different way: at $30-40 per barrel. The closeness of the Urals market as a result of sanctions even more sharply raises the question of the representativeness of quotations, which are also used to calculate taxes.

The main grade of Russian oil Urals has risen sharply - the discount to the North Sea dated (Argus North Sea Dated) on July 20 fell to $15 per barrel from the previous $31-35 per barrel, follows from the data of the international agency Argus dated July 21 (a copy is available from Kommersant). ). Argus North Sea Dated is a benchmark for light North Sea oil, it includes the cost of Brent, Forties, Oseberg, Ekofisk and Troll grades.

Since the imposition of sanctions, Urals has been trading at a significant discount to Brent.

This was due to the fact that many European buyers refused Russian oil for reputational reasons, and others because of the difficulties caused by sanctions in settlements, ship insurance and increased freight rates. In April, the world's largest traders Trafigura and Vitol refused to buy oil from Rosneft and Gazprom Neft, which fell under blocking EU sanctions.

The cost of physical shipments of oil is usually determined by quotations from price agencies, of which the most authoritative are Platts, Argus and Reuters. They publish quotes on the appropriate bases (shipping points) based on open data, tender results, as well as closed surveys of participants in transactions (employees of the trading divisions of oil companies and independent traders). Although the representativeness of the quotes formed in this way has repeatedly raised questions from regulators (for example, the European Commission conducted an investigation in 2013-2015), this system has been operating for decades and is recognized by the market.

However, deals with Urals have become almost completely closed as a result of sanctions - tenders are no longer held, the spot market for this grade has disappeared, European traders are not involved in operations, and Russian companies hardly talk about the terms of selling their oil to Asia.

As a result, Urals quotes are formed on the basis of the latest known data on the size of the discount to Brent and change in accordance with the dynamics of Brent.

In the case of Argus, this latest data is from April 4, when the discount was fixed at $34.85/bbl for Rotterdam CIF basis and $31.9/bbl for Augusta CIF. “But more recently, demand for Urals has picked up in Europe as well, which likely helped boost Russian oil prices, and traders have started to share information again,” Argus said in a July 21 report. Argus declined to comment.

Oil refining in July may recover to last year's levels

According to Kommersant's data, on July 25 Reuters estimated the differential between Urals and Brent at $32.5 per barrel. As of July 21, Platts estimated the Urals discount to Brent on the European market at $40.76 per barrel.

Quotations from Argus are especially important, since they are used by the Ministry of Finance to calculate key taxes - MET, AIT, export duty. Information on the average price of Urals oil is published by the Ministry of Economy: for example, in June it was $90.2 per barrel. Russian oil companies complained in March that Argus quotes do not reflect the real discounts Urals is being sold at, and companies are overpaying taxes. The government discussed the transition to domestic indicators, but the Ministry of Finance has not yet supported this. At the same time, the head of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation, Elvira Nabiullina, said on July 22 that the regulator, together with the government, is working on an oil price index.

This never actually happened. No Russians are surrounded, You should generally ignore anything sourced to the fellow named Arestovych or at least sit on it for a couple of days. He is the official Scheherazade of Ukraine. As far as anybody can tell, the impeding Ukrainian counterattack on Kherson is not real. Come to think of it, did you really expect real news from a British tabloid?

The HIMARS have punched a few neat holes through a major bridge leading to the Russian beachhead towards Nikolaev, which have already been repaired. It is just some old MLRS launcher which got GPS-guided munitions, OK? You could do that with the old Soviet stock, too. Now that would've been a true force multiplier, because they are so many of them. HIMARS are what, a dozen? Whatever happened to all the previous Western Wunderwaffeln that were gonna save Ukraine, like Bayraktar or Javelin, you know?

It is an invasion as any other, progressing at a steady pace, in case you didn't notice. What's up with this holier than though attitude? If it were one of yours, you'd carpet bomb all of Ukraine's civilian infrastructure into rubble first thing. With Russians, do local stilllargely  enjoy electricity, cell phones and water mains, at least.

I am not "hiding" I live here. It is not entirely impossible that I'll be heading back to Russia (or postwar Ukraine) soon enough. If I were any younger, I would be gone years ago. No really good reason to prefer Austria to Russia anymore, but personal inertia. I can tell you've never been. Do visit for an informed opinion, then, yap? Russia is an amazing place these days.

it should be because some how the Russian Oil comes to market so oil price should come down. Also China is lockdown too. Oil should come to $100 now especially Brent

Futures contract on commodity exchanges and actual oil (or any other "commodity" principal, for that matter) are transacted entirely differently. I am pretty positive anybody who needs actual oil avoids the exchanges like the plague. Those establishments are for "investors" (gamblers)

This used to be the authoritative scoop on Urals pricing

https://www.neste.com/investors/market-data/urals-brent-price-difference

maybe still is? Most of it has never been handled on the spot market. -$31.7 discount seems very similar to what Tomasz dug up. It is only about twice as much as usual (always expect ~10% discount on Urals to Brent)

Entirely true. The futures are there to support the derivatives market. Anybody taking deliveries will negotiate long term contracts with the producers directly.

All voters in democracy countries, especially the powerful ones, should realize this:

1 You  voted for generations  of governments, then they went out and created international organization such as UN, EUC,ECB, IMF, World Bank, ,WHO etc and joining club like WEF (mostly originated from Europe, even with the Eurodollar system) . Then they pretend they have to have a duty with these self voted organizations for the greater goods, and come back to control you with propaganda, at the cost of your increasing taxes now or in the future.

Especially US voters: every international  finance institutions can create USD nominated debt out of thin air, but the debt of Government to spend on these foreign missions will only be paid back by past, present and future taxes.  Yes, theoretically you can be rich with stock trading and have a sense of wealth increasing in bull market, but in the long run,  most of you and your family are in the losing side because of uneducated financial skills, misinformation, market manipulation, mainstream, increasing income tax, property tax, inflation (sale taxes) ,death fees, higher healthcare cost or reduce quality, federal students loan for higher tuitions for all degrees (many of them have no industrial values)   yet it was your fault to make sell or buy decisions or even worse, leverage.

Bonus: foreign folks and politicians, friends or foes  blame US voters 's product for this despite most of them, from Europe to Russia to China were greatly benefit from peaceful and booming economy since the end of Cold War up to 2008. With US Allies during the Cold War, right after WW2. What do you imagine a world now without the US guarding trading routes and hot spot, funded by US voters' taxes and benefited by  Western and Eastern elite class?  Surely there would be not a WW3 among World Elites again?  For the Eastern Bloc folks, would you enjoy your current living standard in your comrades club? 

We wouldn't have current living standard which we are now all afraid it would be reduced. And the elites will blame everything on our greed., not theirs.

And in Western Countries,  they can benefit from trading US assets as well, a giant casino with unfair conditions of investments, compares to large institutions with cheap interest rates, connections, technology and insider information (Not very easy to prove and worst case they will have a slap on the wrist with small fine to legalize the gain, googling "jp morgan spoofing gold" for example ). 

2 You cannot held your politicians responsible for their PAST decisions, pretended they made mistake with their political wills or the world missions for greater good, because of the end of the day, they won  in normally "fair" elections (with the help of media and misinformation)  which mean a large majority of voters and for decades voted for them. With the democracy system, you handed them the "out of trail" cards for any "mistakes" or "naivetes" they made with "good" intention, with a dream of big brother or nanny to look after you, they know what is good for you.. 

Unlike in dictatorship or totalitarians countries where the GOV made the decisions, for better or worse, and the people can fully blame their ruling class for their failures (despite of what they can do anything about it, mostly not until the regime collapsed and bear all the consequences). 

3 Beware of any politician that put the international organizations and clubs above your countries in your future elections, or promise something when they are long gone. If you vote with love or hate, not out of rationing for your own benefit, make sure to do self reflection where are these love/hate came from and remember short term gain may give you to long term pain and vice versa. 

At the end of the day, life is all about making decisions and enjoying/enduring consequences. . Democracy is not something can be taken for granted and governments are the products of the your social moral. 90% of your fearful consequences doesn't exist or at least not as bad as you expected. The hardest thing is to know is which one does. I would say the same for 90% of your greed .  Stay stoic and keep your ego in check if you truly want a better world, much less money printing from creating debt and carbon footprint, and it helps you make decisions that you will benefit from. Modern social media ,marketing and politicians will always want to study how to stir up your ego to get what they want.

I appreciate your global viewpoint of economics very much! I agree with all you have mentioned. You may not understand that America is run by dishonest elites. Most of the wealthy are now Democrats but many Republicans are no better. Our elections are no longer as honestly run as they once were. Many tricks have been used. The Biden administration is now letting unlimited immigration of poor people so that the wealthy can benefit from cheap labor. Crime is being allowed to proliferate to weaken the entire social structure and create chaos. I could go on and on. The next two elections are critical to the future of America and the world. Our Deep State is evil and runs things for the elites. They have now been revealed and the "swamp" will hopefully be drained. Meanwhile the Democrats are spending as much funny money as possible.

The Biden administration is now letting unlimited immigration of poor people so that the wealthy can benefit from cheap labor. Crime is being allowed to proliferate to weaken the entire social structure and create chaos. I could go on and on. The next two elections are critical to the future of America and the world. Our Deep State is evil and runs things for the elites. They have now been revealed and the "swamp" will hopefully be drained. Meanwhile the Democrats are spending as much funny money as possible.

So you claim your gonna vote? So you won’t support a Trump Coup? Would you jail him for trying? If you gonna support a Trump, don’t bother voting or paying taxes. By the way, stay off our streets.
