As the world sees the true crisis that is the result of a lack of being energy independent, Shell Gas company is sticking to its morals saying it will no longer buy Gas from Russia. Average gas prices have hit their highest in fourteen years, and are approaching all-time highs.

On Tuesday, Shell announced it will immediately stop purchasing Russian crude oil. The company, based in the U.K., also said it would be willing to close its service stations in response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

In a statement, Shell said the move follows last week’s decision to end investments in Russia and that it is “aligned with new government guidance.” “We will do this as fast as possible, but the physical location and availability of alternatives mean this could take weeks to complete and will lead to reduced throughput at some of our refineries” said the statement.

Shell CEO Ben Van Beurden went so far as to apologize for the company’s purchase of a cargo of Russian crude for refining into gas and diesel as recent as last week. “We are acutely aware that our decision…despite being made with security of supplies at the forefront of our thinking – was on the right one and we are sorry” he said.

On Monday, the Kremlin threatened to cut supplies of natural gas to Germany for its decision to end Russia’s Nord Stream 2 pipeline project. Russia also threatened that oil prices could hit $300 a barrel if the West bans Russian oil.

National Review reports:

The company will also start shuttering its service stations, aviation fuels and lubricants operations in Russia while kickstarting a phased withdrawal from Russian petroleum products, pipeline gas and liquified natural gas…

…The company pledged to donate profits from the remaining barrels of Russian oil it processes to a fund to help the people of Ukraine.

    If the rest of the story of the Russia/Ukraine saga got any media coverage these companies & countries trying to destroy Russia would know how ridiculous their actions are.

    NATO & The US under Obama started this mess % & The EU joined the party.

    Putin is no “Choir Boy” but NATO, The US, & EU have violated every treaty ever made with Russia & have installed their chosen leaders in Ukraine & raped the country just like Biden & his son.

Putin has said in recent years that Finland is considered friendly so long as they do not join NATO. Finland’s President Sauli Niinistö confirmed Sunday he has applied for NATO membership.

MetroUK tweeted chilling video and reported the following:

Russia has started moving nuclear-capable missiles towards its border with Finland hours after Moscow vowed not to tolerate Helsinki’s plans to join Nato.

The Kremlin issued a chilling warning that plans for both Finland and Sweden to sign up to the Atlantic alliance were a ‘grave mistake with far reaching consequences’.

Russian deputy foreign minister, Sergei Ryabkov, said: ‘They should have no illusions that we will simply put up with it,’ and insisted ‘the general level of military tension will rise’.

The video was reportedly taken on a road leading to Vyborg, around 24 miles from the Finnish border, showing the deployment of mobile Iskander missiles.

“Seven launchers are thought to be en route according to commentary on a dash cam video broadcast by Russian media.”

A person on the video can be heard saying: ‘As soon as the president of Finland said they were joining Nato, a whole division of Iskanders, seven of them is moving towards Vyborg.

‘Looks like a new military unit is about to be formed in Vyborg or the region.’
