Direction & Animation: http://www.juppijuppsen.com http://www.facebook.com/juppijuppsen.illustration LTD Box incl. CD & Flag: http://tinyurl.com/RusskajaSpecial CD: http://shop.napalmrecords.com/russkaja-energia.html LTD Red Vinyl: http://shop.napalmrecords.com/energia-red-vinyl-gatefold-download-code.html A metal-head dancing the Kazatchok with a polka fan might be an unusual sight, but high-speed musical sensation Russkaja offers the perfect soundtrack to just such an event. Serving up a mixture of wicked polka beats, trash metal, world jazz and Zappa-Rock, Russkaja are probably the most successful innovators in what they call "Russian Turbo Polka Metal". Russkaja are very Russian, but always with a wink. That's what happens when a group of Russians, Ukrainians and Austrians decide to start a band in the world capital of classicism, Vienna. The band's third album "Energia!" is an explosive mix: Thrash Metal, Funk, Worldmusic - all combining to create songs which make you want to dance. Made up of skilled and charismatic musicians with varied cultural backgrounds, Russkaja spread their postmodern version of Russian folklore -- a version that screams into your ear: "dance, dance, dance!" Band founder Georgij A. Makazaria was born and raised in MoscowGeorgij's voice, mixed with a rock band setup, plus a violinist and an incredible brass section including an instrument called "Potete" (a unique hybrid of trumpet and trombone) already suggests the lunatic nature of Russkaja's sound. The Sojusrocket is launching! With Russkaja, Kasatchok dancing becomes a brawl: the brass section is a Kalashnikov and the stage outfits a mixture of Genghis Khan and the Red Army.....with compliments of the Tzar, of course. With two successful albums, 300 concerts on both sides of the Iron Curtain, the band has more than deserved the title of "Working Class Hero" including a golden badge of honour. The first five-year-plan has finally been fulfilled, some comrades would be proud indeed! The next one starts with "Energia!"!

A number of cooperation documents were signed by Russia and Saudi Arabia on Thursday, after President Putin met with Saudi Prince Mohammed in what was one of the most anticipated meetings at the international economic forum in St. Petersburg. The pair has signed six agreements in total, Al Arabiya News Channel reported. A cooperation agreement on a peaceful nuclear program was among the documents, the press service of Russia’s nuclear agency, Rosatom, said. According to Rosatom, the document is the first in the history of Russia-Saudi relations to create a legal framework for cooperation between the nations in the field of nuclear energy. Future joint projects might include construction of nuclear power reactors, provision of services in nuclear fuel cycling, including those for nuclear power stations and research reactor facilities.

These projects will be introduced to our companies, including the ones involving the construction and upgrade of railways and building underground railway systems,” Novak said, adding that the Gulf kingdom plans to build metro systems in four cities in the near future. Russia’s state space agency, Roscosmos, and Saudi national center for science and technology KACST signed papers including agendas for future cooperation in space exploration. On meeting Putin, the 30-year old deputy crown prince Mohammed bin Salman, who is Saudi Arabia’s Defense Minister, announced that his father, King Salman, was inviting the Russian leader to visit the Gulf state. “I have the honor to pass on an invitation to visit the kingdom of Saudi Arabia, as we regard Russia as one of the important states in the contemporary world, and our relations have roots in the past,” Prince Mohammed said, adding that Russia had been the first country to officially recognize the Gulf kingdom. “We will aim to develop bilateral relations in all sectors,” he added.

Although the ruble-denominated MICEX and the dollar-denominated RTS combined their businesses, stocks continue to be listed in both currencies, and the two indexes keep trading separately. The merger is part of the Russian government's plan to encourage Russian and foreign equity issuers to IPO their companies in Moscow, rather than London or other global financial centres. "We should make the Russian market convenient for equity issuers and create technologies that will make investment easy and convenient for the domestic investor," Sergei Shvetsov, deputy chairman of the Russian Central Bank, said at the merger ceremony. This is the first step that Russian authorities have undertaken to make Russia's financial markets more investor-friendly. Russia is also about to open a central securities depositary which will allow foreign funds to own their own shares directly, which will open the market to a larger pool of foreign investors. Officials have also announced plans to allow Russian companies to float 100 percent of their stocks abroad - up from the 25 percent allowed now.

Pan from fire to tent 10. Various of Russian dignitaries leaving STORYLINE Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi hosted Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin in Moscow on Saturday in a dark-green Bedouin tent that was pitched in a Kremlin park. Gadhafi, who last visited Moscow during the Soviet era, arrived on Friday with an entourage of defence and energy officials for three days of talks. Libya was an ally of the Soviet Union, but relations withered after the 1991 Soviet collapse. Gadhafi's visit highlights Russia's efforts to bolster relations again. The Libyan leader said earlier Saturday he hopes to increase energy ties with Moscow. Russia has hoped to persuade Libya to back its plans for a gas cartel that would also involve Algeria, Iran, Qatar and the countries of Central Asia. Such an OPEC-like organisation could strengthen Moscow's energy leverage over Europe. Gadhafi is also expected to clinch a series of major arms deals on his visit. He held talks with Russian President Dmitri Medvedev and Putin earlier Saturday. Gadhafi described the talks as a "continuation of the progress" made by Putin when he visited Tripoli in April. During his visit, Putin, who was then president, agreed to write off 4.5 (b) billion US dollars in Libyan debt in exchange for lucrative deals in energy and arms. In return, Russia's gas monopoly Gazprom signed a deal to develop six prospective oil and gas fields in Libya. In the 1980s, Libya was a major customer for Soviet weapons. But Russia now faces competition from other former Soviet republics for supplying arms to Libya. After leaving Moscow on Sunday, Gadhafi is expected to visit Belarus and Ukraine.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi described Russia as its "most loyal partner" during a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the Kremlin in Moscow, Thursday. During the meeting Putin said "what is important to do now is use all the opportunities for diversification of Russian-Indian relations." The President then laid out the areas of interest in which both nations are set to work together on including "hi-tech, innovation, energy, aviation, engineering, medicine, and the diamond industry." Other political issues such as the UN, the economic situation of the BRICS, and the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) were also on the agenda of Modi's visit to Russia.

(7 Dec 2018) Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov brushed off suggestions on Friday that Russia could exchange the 24 Ukrainian seamen captured in last month's confrontation in the Sea of Azov. Lavrov said it was too early to speak about any offers of a prisoner swap until Russia's investigation of the incident was completed and the servicemen are put on trial for violating the Russian border. Speaking in Milan at a ministerial meeting of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe, Lavrov said that "maybe we will talk about alleviating their condition" once the court hearings have taken place. Lavrov also reacted to a suggestion by German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas to expand the OSCE monitoring mission to the Sea of Azov, saying that Russia "has no need" for any intermediaries or monitors in the area.

English/Nat Moscow share prices tumbled so fast on Tuesday that Russia's stock exchange temporarily suspended trading. The prices fell during panic-selling sparked by fears the Russian government is too broke to cope with another run on the market. The government, trying to prove otherwise, reiterated it had the resources to pay its debts and urged tax collectors to keep up the pressure on companies that owe billions in unpaid taxes and fines. Russia's fledgling market has been falling steadily for several weeks, but on Tuesday the fall was particularly bad. Trading was suspended for 45 minutes late in the session, when losses exceeded those allowed under trading rules. After trading reopened there was a slight rebound. The once booming emerging market which last year was the toast of foreign investors is now one of the main victims of the fallout from the Asian financial crash. SOUNDBITE: (English) \"In the words of great economists we are dealing with the animal spirits of the markets now. Basically it doesn't have a lot to do with the fact that Russia has a low inflation rate, it doesn't have a lot to do with the fact that we have probably got the best government we've had in a long time, with a clear plan for implementing the I-M-F's austerity package. What it has to do with is the fact that investors don't believe the government will implement the plan and they are basically waiting to see some tangible results.\" SUPER CAPTION: Charlie Ryan, Director of the United Financial Group It comes just weeks after the I-M-F granted Russia a 22.6 (b) billion U-S dollars bailout package. But that money is dependent on the government conducting a tight fiscal policy and improving tax collection. Investors are now waiting to see whether the government keeps its word. Many blame the 9.1 per cent market drop on external factors. SOUNDBITE: (English) \"Obviously the Dow sold off heavily so far today and there is continuing concern about Japan, so effectively what you have now is a situation where the Russian government seems to be doing everything it can to get a handle on the situation and yet external factors are putting our market into a worse posture.\" SUPER CAPTION: Charlie Ryan, Director of the United Financial Group Russian bond prices plummeted on local and international markets, and the ruble also closed lower. The Central Bank was forced to dip into its dwindling foreign exchange reserves to keep the currency from falling further.

Russian President Vladimir Putin says Moscow plans to build stronger ties with Asian countries and to become a reliable energy supplier for them. Putin said Russia has historically exported most of its hydrocarbons to the West, but it now plans to enter Asian markets. He added that Europe's growth is slow and doing business with Europeans is risky, while the economies of Asian countries are growing rapidly and have attracted Moscow’s attention as the new destination for its energy exports. Putin's comments come ahead of his planned visit to India for talks with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and at a time when tension is high between Russia and the West over the Ukraine crisis.

CROSSROADS | Russia's role in the unfolding events in Venezuela is the subject on this week's diplomatic dispatch. i24NEWS' Correspondent Christian Malard reports from Paris. The ongoing events in Venezuela put its president Nicolas Maduro at the center of a cold war style showdown between Russia, an ally that has shored up his government with billions of dollars and the US which has denounced him as a corrupt autocrat with no legitimacy. Even if the opposition leader Juan Guaido, the incumbent president of the national assembly and self proclaimed interim president, seems to have the momentum, the situation is far from being clear. Guaido still hopes that key members of the armed forces will break ranks with Maduro after large demonstrations across the country and international pledges of support for him. Some experts don’t discount that military leaders may ultimately flip but they add it would possibly happen, if the rank and file were signaling clearly that they did not want to crack down on protesters and if Trump’s latest decision to impose sanctions on Venezuela's state-owned oil firm encouraged them to accept a peaceful transfer of power. Vladimir Putin, even charged the US with promoting regime, change with catastrophic consequences ahead. In late December, Russia dispatched aircraft to Venezuela in a show of solidarity with Maduro including 2 Tupolev 160 nuclear capable bombers that flew more than 6.000 miles. Moreover, Vladimir Putin has given Venezuela 10 billion dollars in financial assistance. In exchange, Rosneft the Russian state oil company, has acquired a stake in Venezuela's energy sector. China has also been a supporter of the leftist government in Venezuela, since Maduro’s predecessor Hugo Chavez first came to power. The relationship has been undergirded by china’s growing appetite for oil partly paid for, with tens of billion of dollars in loans to Venezuela.

The post at SPIMEX is now now the largest natural gas trading post in Europe. The step may lead to the formation of new market approaches and a decline in gas prices for consumers due to consumers being able to buy gas directly from the company and not via a broker.

Politics continue to affect oil traders’ mood with crude prices weighed down. Primarily, it is worth paying attention to the Brent crude price. It broke through the level of $71 a barrel, plunging below $69.50. The US Energy Information Administration said in its weekly report that US crude stockpiles fell by 5.296 million barrels last week. This data provided no support for oil prices. Probably, oil prices would have continued to grow, but the report by the Energy Information Administration showed an increase in global oil supplies to a record level of 100 million barrels per day. Only shale oil traders hit the panic button following the release of the report, while Brent crude price remained flat, trading within the range of $80 and $79 a barrel. The price was backed by the news that India, which has given heed to the recent US sanctions on Iran's oil exports, now told Washington it was unable to fulfill its pledge in full. In the meantime, commodity-sensitive Russia’s ruble is showing signs of strong resistance. The greenback/ruble pair is approaching the level 68.2, having lost more than 1% since the start of a trading week. Despite uncertainty surrounding new US sanctions against Russia, markets await tomorrow’s meeting of the central bank. Some analysts are sure that the bank will adjust its monetary policy; however, some experts think there will be no changes. It seems that crude oil and some commodity currencies have gone their separate ways again. But still, some currency strategists believe that the current oil and forex market situation is temporary and is subject to external influence. https://www.instaforex.com FX Analytics - https://www.instaforex.com/forex_analytics Forex Calendar - https://www.instaforex.com/forex_calendar Forex TV from InstaForex - https://www.instaforex.com/instaforex_tv Forex charts - https://www.instaforex.com/charts Instant account opening - https://www.instaforex.com/fast_open_live_account Forex Trading Contests - https://www.instaforex.com/forex_contests List of official InstaForex blogs: https://www.facebook.com/instaforex https://www.instagram.com/instaforex/ https://twitter.com/InstaForex #oil #ruble #forex

02-18-2009 Russia, China sign $25 billion energy deal Beijing signed a deal with Moscow Tuesday to lend $25 billion to two Russian oil firms, which in turn will sell 15 million tons of crude oil a year to China for the next 20 years. The agreement will ensure the long-awaited extension of Russia's Siberia-Pacific coast pipeline to China, too. The pipeline project, agreed on late last year, will see the extension of the pipeline from the Siberian city of Skovorodino, 70 km north of the Sino-Russian border, to China. China will lend $15 billion to Russia's state-owned oil firm Rosneft and $10 billion to pipeline monopoly Transneft. China Development Bank (CDB) provided the credit for the deal, according to the Associated Press (AP). The Russian firms, on the other hand, will ensure China gets 300,000 barrels of crude a day for 20 years. China and Russia signed seven agreements on energy cooperation package programs, Xinhua said, quoting a Foreign Ministry official. The $25-billion deal is seen as a boost to Russian energy firms because the global financial crisis and a drastic drop in the crude prices have left them struggling to raise capital, AP said. The agreement was signed by Vice-Premier Wang Qishan and Russian Deputy Prime Minister Igor Sechin in Beijing at the third round of energy talks between the two countries. "We hope the two sides will give full play to the bilateral energy negotiation mechanism to promote bilateral energy cooperation," Wang told Sechin. Sechin replied that the two countries should intensify cooperation in fields such as energy and finance, and make joint efforts to guarantee that the agreed projects are implemented on time. A memorandum of cooperation in the energy sector signed in Moscow in October said Transneft and Rosneft could get loans from China in exchange for long-term oil sales to Beijing. But the talks were suspended on November 12 because of divergence of views on lending rates and loan guarantees, industry insiders said. Russia, the largest oil exporter after Saudi Arabia, is seeking to shift its exports focus from the West, and eyeing China as the main new market. Last year, trade between Russia and China increased 18 percent to $56.8 billion. And Premier Wen placed cooperation in resources development on top of his five proposals on economic cooperation when he visited Russia last year. The two countries have agreed to work jointly in oil production and processing, natural gas production and in chemical industries. They have agreed to expand cooperation in nuclear energy, too, including the construction of nuclear power plant in Tianwan, Jiangsu province, uranium mining, and post-processing of spent fuel.

Today crude oil is trading higher, following a weekly report from the US Energy Information Administration. According to the government data, US commercial oil inventories dropped less than expected by 5.8 million barrels in the week to August 17. In response, West Texas Intermediate gained 2% to trade at near 68 US dollars a barrel. Later, the North American benchmark grade made a downward correction and settled down at 67 dollars 80 cents. Market participants are braced for official statements from the trade talks between the US and China. Meanwhile, the parties completed the first round of the low-level talks with little progress, despite the mutual intention to settle the trade dispute. Earlier, Donald Trump had expressed skepticism about an efficient and fair trade deal with China. Since today the US and China are imposing 25% tariffs on 16-billion dollar worth of each other’s goods. Brent international benchmark is also trading in the green, having climbed almost 2% since yesterday. Brent crude oil is trading at around 74 US dollars 50 cents a barrel. Commodity analysts expect the oil rally to be short-lived. Citing Kuwait’s oil minister, Kuwait is likely to sign deals on the development of oil fields that it shares with its neighbors Saudi Arabia and Iraq with the aim of increasing oil output. The news is going to trap the oil rally. No wonder, commodity currencies have come under pressure. The Russian ruble is no exception. The dollar/ruble pair is heading upward to 69.00. Today the Russian currency slumped after the Bank of Russia had announced its plans to raise a volume of forex interventions. Apart from it, the ruble has been weighed down by new US sanctions against Moscow. Analysts say that crude oil could extend its rally today and finish the trading day at the highest level in about two weeks. However, the ruble is on track to be the worst-performer of the week. https://www.instaforex.com FX Analytics - https://www.instaforex.com/forex_analytics Forex Calendar - https://www.instaforex.com/forex_calendar Forex TV from InstaForex - https://www.instaforex.com/instaforex_tv Forex charts - https://www.instaforex.com/charts Instant account opening - https://www.instaforex.com/fast_open_live_account Forex Trading Contests - https://www.instaforex.com/forex_contests List of official InstaForex blogs: https://www.facebook.com/instaforex https://www.instagram.com/instaforex/ https://twitter.com/InstaForex #oil #ruble

Iran news in brief, January 22, 2019 Pompeo and Bolton Fully Supported Germany for Banning Iran Regime's Mahan Airliner Johan Bolton in his message stated: We fully support the action today by Germany to counter Iranian-sponsored terrorism in Europe by banning Mahan Air flights. Mahan Air exploits commercial air to support Iranian terrorism by transporting operatives, weapons, and funds throughout the Middle East and beyond. Mike Pompeo also said: “The U.S. welcomes Germany’s decision to deny landing rights to Iran’s Mahan Air. The airline transports weapons and fighters across the Middle East, supporting the Iranian regime’s destructive ambitions around the region. We encourage all our allies to follow suit,” On Monday More Than 5 Protest Gatherings Were Held in Iran More than five protests were organized in Iran on January 21, 2019. The workers of National power distribution Company in Tehran, the municipality workers in Lowshan, the investors of Caspian financial institution, and the customers of its branch in Mashhad, Badr Toos institution have held separate protests requesting their demands. Moreover, 300 workers of Nishabur municipality have 30 million Toman [approcimately 3000 USD] unpaid wages, each. They were protesting multiple times in January. Members of Persecuted Baha'i Faith Arrested and Deprived From Education Iranian Intelligence agents on January 20, arrested Baha’i woman, Atoosa Ahmad-Aei, in her home in Tehran. The Intelligence Ministry agents raided her home and taken away her books, computer, and other personal items. Two Baha’i women, Kimia Mostafavi and Kiana Rezvani, were also arrested in Kerman last week on January 19, 2019, by the state security forces. No information is available on their fate and whereabouts. Iran Fails to Find Any Buyers for Crude Offered on Exchange Iran failed to find any buyers on Monday in its latest attempt to sell oil to private companies for export on the energy exchange, state media reported, in a setback to Tehran’s efforts to bypass U.S. sanctions. Crude oil trade is state-controlled in Iran, but to try to work around U.S. sanctions, the government last year started to sell crude to private buyers through the exchange. However, there were no buyers on Monday for the one million barrels the National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC) offered on the exchange at a starting price of $52 a barrel. Iran Not Invited, Russia Snubs Meeting Over Iran Concerns Poland’s foreign minister says Iran has not been invited to an international conference on the Middle East next month in Warsaw, while Russia has declined the invitation. Minister Jacek Czaputowicz said in remarks published Monday that Iran’s presence would have hampered talks because the language that Tehran uses is “hard to accept.” He said Russia has advised that it will not participate, either. Czaputowicz insisted the conference could help solve the impasse over the international agreement on curbing Iran’s nuclear ambitions.

Russian/Eng/Nat The Russian rouble continues to drop against the U-S dollar, falling 0.105 in trading on the Moscow Interbank Currency Exchange (M-I-C-E-X) today to close at 6.99 roubles to the dollar. Brokers say the situation remains difficult even though the financial markets seem to have stabilised following Monday's de facto devaluation of the rouble. Meanwhile Russia's Central Bank has introduced limits on currency exchanges in a bid to stop speculators. Moscow's Interbank Currency Exchange or M-I-C-E-X has become the focus of furious rouble trading. This is not merely due to the Russian Central Bank's Monday decision to let the rouble float because it no longer had reserves to hold the currency steady. But the M-I-C-E-X has become the focus also because a simultaneous crisis in the banking sector trading on the major interbank market was suspended last week. The M-I-C-E-X opened for trading for just 35 minutes with the rouble falling to 6.99 to the U-S dollar. Dealers say the situation is uncertain. SOUNDBITE: (Russian) "The situation remains difficult. It's a crisis but the situation is not getting worse. If the situation on the financial market does get worse then there will be grave social unrest and both the government and the financial institutions are concerned about this." SUPER CAPTION: Andrei Sorokin, Broker Some money exchanges on the streets have been taking advantage of the situation by charging higher rates of up to 10 roubles to the U-S dollar, taking advantage of the desperate demand for U-S dollars and the ignorance of the population. To mitigate the confusion Russia's Central Bank announced rules setting a 15 percent limit on the spreads between buy and sell rates at exchanges. But people still feel aggrieved. SOUNDBITE: (Russian) "The rate has gone up and the price to buy roubles is also going up. But people's wages are staying at the same level as before. In all aspects it's very unpleasant. First of all the pensioners are suffering and those who earn very little money anyway." SUPER CAPTION: Mikhail Kupnetsov, Vox pop Previously the rouble's stabilisation had been a source of pride for the Russian leadership . Political analysts say this economic disarray is just a sign of how little President Yeltsin and the government are managing to cope. SOUNDBITE: (English) "The problem is that the government isn't in control of the situation. President Yeltsin doesn't control the situation. The situation is simply not controlled in Russia. So all that the government has done, it has unleashed a series of events. I don't think that the government and the people who were working out this decision they have correctly forecasted all the consequences." SUPER CAPTION: Viktor Kremenyuk, Political Analyst One consequence many expect is a rise in food prices. This will only happen gradually as new stocks of imported goods come onto the market. Many people shop at the markets where prices for fresh produce tend to be cheaper. But in recent years Russians have got so used to living through financial hardship, many of them seem unconcerned about the latest crisis. SOUNDBITE: (Russian) "Nothing has really changed in people's life. They are calm and are not too worried. There is some uncertainty right now but I think it should be sorted out soon and there's no reason for great concern." SUPER CAPTION: Larisa Vorobyeva, market stall holder However if food prices rise dramatically President Yeltsin will not only have a financial crisis on his hands, but a social one as well.

The CEO of France’s oil and gas giant Total, Christophe de Margerie, was reportedly among four people killed in a business jet crash at Vnukovo Airport in Moscow after the aircraft hit a snowplow on take-off. Total’s chairman and CEO was the only passenger in the Falcon 50 business jet besides three crewmembers, LifeNews cited a source as saying. Another source confirmed to TASS that de Margerie was the only passenger who checked in for the private flight to Paris, adding that the 3 crewmembers were also French citizens. “I can confirm that the passenger was Total's head de Margerie," airport spokeswoman Elena Krylova told Reuters. Total has so far not confirmed the reports of its CEO's death. “To date, I have no information that I could tell you. When and if it appears, you can get it from the press secretary or read the communiqué," a representative of the company told RIA Novosti. During take-off at around 0:10am Moscow time on Tuesday, the light aircraft, according to preliminary data, hit a snow-clearing machine with its landing gear. Due to the damage, the pilot reportedly decided to turn back and land. While still in the air, the plane was sending distress signals and reporting an engine fire and fuselage damage, LifeNews reports. Upon crashing on the runway, the aircraft was immediately engulfed in flames, killing everyone on board. Debris from the aircraft was scattered up to 200 meters from the crash site, according to the rescue services. The engine was found some 50 meters from the crash site, while one of the landing gears was ripped off and discovered nearly 200 meters from the main mass of debris. Vnukovo Airport temporarily suspended all flights following the incident, but by 2 am all operations were restored. While initials reports suggested four people died in the tragedy, unconfirmed reports said that five bodies were found at the crash site, one allegedly being the driver of the snow-cleaning vehicle. “A criminal investigation has been opened into the violation of safety regulations after a light aircraft crash in the capital's Vnukovo airport,” transport official Tatyana Morozova told RIA. An investigative group is working at the crash site, Morozova added. Earlier in the day, due to bad weather conditions at least 18 planes were diverted from Vnukovo to other Moscow airports, Itar-tass reported siting a source at Vnukovo. Flights landing at Moscow airhubs operate “on factual weather” conditions, meaning that a crew commander decide themselves about the possibility of landing at the destination or preceding to alternative landing routes at the capital Some 12 planes have been received by Domodedovo airport while 6 landed at Sheremetyevo as dense fog and winter weather conditions make landing difficult. According to the source, 80 percent of the diverted races were private business jets. De Margerie, 63, joined Total in 1974 after graduating from the École Supérieure de Commerce in Paris. He served in several positions in the Finance Department and Exploration & Production division. In 1995, he became President of Total Middle East before joining the Total's Executive Committee as the President of the Exploration & Production division in May 1999. In May 2006, he was appointed a member of the Board of Directors. He was appointed Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Total on May 21, 2010. Despite Western-imposed sanctions on Russia that prohibit western financing and technology transfer to some Russian energy projects, Total is continuing to pursue a natural gas project in Yamal, a joint venture with Russia's Novatek and China's CNPC. “Can we live without Russian gas in Europe? The answer is no. Are there any reasons to live without it? I think – and I'm not defending the interests of Total in Russia – it is a no,” the Total boss told Reuters back in summer. Meanwhile, another Total project, with Russia’s sanctions-hit Lukoil, is “definitely stopped,” de Margerie said in September, but since the project had not started it did not have “any impact” on Total, he told the Financial Times. De Margerie had recently expressed his support for a wider use of other currencies in transactions outside the US – for oil purchases in particular – after the scandal involving France’s largest bank, BNP Paribas, which was slapped with a record $9 billion fine and a 1-year dollar trading ban. “Nothing prevents anyone from paying for oil in euros,” de Margerie said in July. “The price of a barrel of oil is quoted in dollars. A refinery can take that price and using the euro-dollar exchange rate on any given day, agree to make the payment in euros.” READ MORE: http://on.rt.com/txhsld CEO Daripada Total Perancis yg MATI dalam KEMALANGAN Jet di Moscow Vnukovo AIRPORT BACA lanjut . . .
