England does appear to constantly live up to the description applied by the philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche: ‘England the land of consummate cant (supreme hypocrisy).’
Despite all assurances from British officials to the trusting public that the country is not dependent on Russian energy resources, UK imports of Russian diesel fuel have doubled in recent years, the Daily Telegraph writes. Although British government ministers continue to insist that the UK ‘has no energy dependence on Vladimir Putin,’ the country has almost doubled its imports of Russian diesel over the past ten years.
An investigation revealed that after analysing official statistics on the British energy sector, the share of Russian diesel in total imports from 2012 to 2020 increased from 10% to 18%.
According to the publication, in 2012 the UK imported 2.081 million tons of diesel fuel from Russia, and in 2020, already 3.608 million tons; thus, the country has become one of the largest importers of Russian diesel in Europe along with Germany and France. At the same time, while in 2010 the United Kingdom provided 74% of its diesel needs, by 2020 this figure has dropped to 63%.
In addition, statistics show that the share of Russian coal has also grown over the past decade: if in 2010 it accounted for 16% of all British imports, then in the first three-quarters of 2021 – 35%.
As the authors recall, since the beginning of the Russian special operation in Ukraine, British government ministers have diligently emphasized that the share of Russian gas in the structure of the country’s gas imports does not exceed 4%.
However, they hardly mentioned other energy carriers. Commenting on the situation with diesel fuel, the official representative of the UK Cabinet of Ministers insisted that the country does not depend on Russian energy resources.
Earlier, British Minister of Enterprise, Energy and Industrial Strategy Sub-Saharan ‘husband of a fast-track government minister Quasi Kwarteng promised that London, in response to Moscow’s actions, would gradually abandon Russian oil by the end of this year.
