The unsupported banknote printing created much more liquidity than Iran's low 3 percent production rate. After much fanfare about "fighting corruption," Raisi's government removed the official exchange rate.

Iran’s Nationwide Protests Over Rising Prices Enter Their Seventh Day

Inflation has become rampant in Iran as a result of the country's liquidity rate exceeding its production and employment rates, causing prices to steadily rise.

Inflation has become rampant in Iran as a result of the country’s liquidity rate exceeding its production and employment rates, causing prices to steadily rise.

 

On Tuesday, protests in various Iranian cities entered their seventh day. These anti-regime protests are the most visible manifestation of a volatile society. Since 2017, Iran has seen numerous protests and at least eight large-scale uprisings. Following the rapid rise of consumer goods, particularly bread and pasta, a new wave of protests erupted in Iran. While prices had been rising in recent years, they soared after Ebrahim Raisi’s government removed the preferential exchange rate.

People in Iran have stood firm and powerfully against these calls for the uprising.

 

While protests over soaring food prices spread from province to province, state officials’ systemic hypocrisy speaks volumes about the regime’s grave concerns.”Obviously, the enemy has tried and is doing and will continue to work hard,” Iranian Interior Minister Ahmad Vahidi told state television. ” Of course, the enemy is showing its enmity, and this is their job. This is the only effort they can make. But, thanks to God, our people have stood firm and powerfully against these calls for the uprising.”

Europe aims to reduce Russian gas imports to 50 million cubic meters per day in the first year of the plan, and to 80 million meters in the third year (55 percent of last year's average daily imports).

Will Iran Usurp Russia’s Energy Dominance over the EU?

The energy crisis in Europe caused by the conflict in Ukraine has prompted policymakers to consider alternative energy sources, including green energy. Russia is critical to Europe’s energy security because it supplies roughly 40% of Europe’s natural gas, coal, and a quarter of its oil needs. Two short-term measures are being used by the EU to reduce its reliance on Russian gas exports: increasing gas imports from countries other than Russia and reducing gas consumption. Europe aims to reduce Russian gas imports to 50 million cubic meters per day in the first year of the plan, and to 80 million meters in the third year (55 percent of last year’s average daily imports).

 


As Russian tanks marched through Ukrainian cities and oil prices began to rise, many regime analysts and even officials urged the regime’s leadership to seize the moment and elevate Tehran as the major winner of the Ukraine crisis. Many headlines in Iranian state media used the term “golden opportunity.” But how golden is this opportunity in practice?

Iranian gas production capacity is currently around 800 million cubic meters per day, which is not equivalent to the country’s daily gas consumption. In other words, due to disproportionate domestic consumption, the country with the world’s second-largest gas reserves and third-largest gas producer lacks the ability to produce more gas for export. If the Iranian regime decides to reduce domestic use in order to increase exports, it will face serious domestic opposition.

Iranian gas production capacity is currently around 800 million cubic meters per day, which is not equivalent to the country’s daily gas consumption.

 

Iran has experienced severe power outages in recent years, both during the cold winter nights and the hot summer days, with the government blaming a gas shortage as the primary cause. The crisis has sparked a series of major protests and uprisings, making it a security concern for Tehran.

Despite the fact that mazut causes environmental issues, experts and ordinary citizens have expressed concerns about how the state’s solution is only exacerbating the already severe air pollution problem.

Iran’s oil and gas industry has been subjected to harsh sanctions over the last four decades as a result of its foreign policy and nuclear program. Iran has a hard time supplying gas for domestic use during cold seasons of the year due to a lack of infrastructure and sanctions on its oil, gas, and petrochemical industries, and it has also cut off exports to Iraq and Turkey, Iran’s main natural gas export destinations.

The so-called Peace Pipeline was built at the start of Ahmadinejad’s presidency at a cost of more than $7 billion to supply 150 million cubic meters of gas per day to Pakistan and India (roughly half of current European gas imports from Russia). However, the regime caved into Russian pressure while the US persuaded India and Pakistan, and the pipeline now rusts beneath the ground.

 

Under the leadership of Ebrahim Raisi, the Ministry of Oil has taken steps to address the problem of domestic blackouts by cutting off gas to industrial plants and increasing mazut deliveries to power plants.

The pressure drop in the South Pars field, which supplies 70% of Iran’s natural gas, is the most significant threat to the country’s natural gas industry’s future. If this problem is not solved with advanced foreign technology, Iran will become a natural gas importer in the medium term if domestic consumption continues to rise while production capacity declines.

Even if the Iranian regime had the will, technology, and intelligence to invest strategically in the oil and gas sector, political reservations would have prevented Tehran from cutting Moscow off from its main source of revenue. “Under no circumstances does Russia want Iran to enter the European energy market,” the state-run Tejarat News reports, “because in that case, Russia’s (energy) supremacy over Europe will be broken.”

 

Simply put, if all sanctions against the Iranian regime are lifted, and Europe is trying to find a replacement for Russian oil and gas while reducing Russian energy influence in Europe, the last option that may come to mind is energy dependence on Tehran.

Iran: Raisi’s Economic Breakthrough Isn’t Happening

Ebrahim-raisi

Raisi has failed to produce any positive results after eight months. Meanwhile, the country’s economy is experiencing unprecedented crises such as inflation and unemployment, with a growing portion of the population living in poverty.

 

President Ebrahim Raisi of the Iranian regime blamed his predecessor Hassan Rouhani’s government for the country’s high inflation and economic crises during his inauguration ceremony in August 2021. In his first speech as president, Raisi, while blaming Rouhani, resorted to his tried-and-true tactics of making hollow promises of “major developments” and “changing the status quo.

The UN Human Rights Council is meeting this week for its 49th annual session, during which a resolution to prolong the mandate of Javaid Rehman, the UN Special Rapporteur on human rights in Iran, was passed. In response, Kazem Gharib Abadi, the regime’s judiciary deputy for international affairs and secretary of the mullahs’ so-called “Human Rights Department,” met with Michelle Bachelet, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, to air his grievances about the Iranian opposition, thePeople’s Mojahedin of Iran (PMOI/MEK), and their actions and revelations, which have proven costly to the mullahs’ regime.

Iran’s State-Run Media Warns of Further Unrest as the Country’s Crises Worsen

Even the tightly controlled official media has begun to acknowledge some parts of people’s difficult lives and how the regime produces and exacerbates crises.

 

The Persian New Year of 1400 is about to conclude, and one state-run media outlet, Mardom Salari, said on March 1 that “it was a year full of coronavirus suffering, an unstable economy, high and persistent inflation, rather than good days for the people.”People from all walks of life are protesting across Iran because they are unable to make a living. Because of the regime’s systemic corruption, incompetence, and mismanagement, the country’s economic crisis is worsening.

MEK Iran: Regime’s Parliament Approves ‘Internet Protection Bill’ Behind Closed Doors

bazar workers .teachers

As a way of cooperating with Tehran to expand online surveillance, the proposed measure requires international technology businesses to have a legal agent in Iran.

After months of debating whether or not to adopt the so-called “internet protection bill,” the Iranian regime’s parliament has quickly passed the bill’s general provisions. This bill, contrary to its name, would not protect millions of Iranians who use the internet and social media platforms, but will instead restrict their individual freedoms.

MEK Iran: Regime’s ‘Cyberspace Users Rights Protection Plan’ has Significant Hurdles

Talk about internet

Under the guise of “managing internal and foreign traffic,” a draft of the Cyberspace Consumers Rights Protection bill would place even more restrictions on Iranian users’ access to internet services.

 

There have been multiple complaints in recent weeks of Iran’s internet speed plummeting, causing huge disruptions in the daily lives of millions of Iranians. The regime’s Minister of Information and Communications Technology characterized the situation as a legacy of the previous administration’s infrastructural issues. However, some technical analysts and even some state-run media are claiming that the slowing internet is an intentional throttling carried out as part of the “Cyberspace Users Rights Protection” plan, an internet censorship bill that has been circulating in recent months.
