Russia was visited by two Americans from Donald Trump's entourage: Carter Page and Jack Kingston. The common thread through these visits is the topic of the possible lifting of sanctions against Russia. In the US, there is a whole industrial “lobby” that opposes restrictive measures against Russia.


Americans are often in "isolated" Moscow


Former congressman from Georgia Jack Kingston, one of Mr. Trump’s assistants, admits that the new White House administration should consider lifting sanctions against Russia. This Kingston said in an interview with CNN, transmits TASS.

According to him, “the new administration has the opportunity to look with new eyes” on the key topics of relations between the US and Russia. He is skeptical about the results of the sanctions: “I don’t think that it can be said that the sanctions brought about the results people were hoping for.”

Also, Trump's assistant stressed that “in the conditions when Americans do business in Russia for 50 billion dollars, it would be possible to maintain opportunities for good communication with Russians”.

Obviously, Trump and his assistants are committed to a pragmatic business approach. “Some Washington’s rhetoric may not be as productive as someone thinks,” a former lawmaker said in an interview. - We should study together Syria, Ukraine, all these are very important topics. However, it is necessary to maintain relations in business when these military issues are resolved. ”

In Moscow, Mr. Kingston discussed with representatives of American and Russian business the possibility of lifting the sanctions. At the same time, he did not hold meetings with Russian officials.

As the former congressman, elected President Trump "is not obliged to follow Obama's foreign policy" and can "start from a new list."

He visited Moscow and the adviser to the election headquarters of Donald Trump Carter Page. According to Page, история the events of recent years in Ukraine and the Crimea is one of the egregious examples of “fake News».

“I’m sure there will be new opportunities for overcoming these misconceptions and the wrong vector that has been set for Ukraine,” Page said in an interview with RIA "News", answering the question of whether, in his opinion, the new US administration will implement the policy of recognizing the annexation of Crimea.

The agency recalls that in the election campaign, Trump promised, if elected, to consider recognizing the Russian status of Crimea.

As for the purpose of the visit to Moscow, Mr. Page did not hide it. He noted that the possibilities of cooperation with the private sector of the Russian Federation in the near future will be as favorable as possible, and therefore he is working on a number of projects.

“American, as well as European, companies are highly interested in returning to the Russian market. Their interest affects a wide range of sectors, ”the agency quotes Page.

Neither Page nor Kingston held official meetings with government officials. Known comment of Page's visit to Moscow, given by the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Russia Sergey Ryabkov.

Russia does not perceive Page’s arrival as a signal from future US authorities, Ryabkov said in an interview TASS.

“He is an economist who has come on his own business,” the diplomat noted. - He worked for a long time, and, as I understand it, continues to work in Russia. As far as I know, he has investment experience. Therefore, we, of course, welcome if foreign investors come here and work on their questions for investing in certain sectors or on the stock exchange, or anywhere. ”

According to Ryabkov, Paget was not accepted in state structures. “We did not perceive and do not perceive his arrival as a kind of signal from Trump: it simply could not be,” he said.

The same is the same page confirmed TV channel "RT". Let's quote a fragment of the dialogue:

- Just for the sake of curiosity: what status are you in now and what opportunities do you have in order, as you say, to move the situation in a different direction? What can you do?

- I personally believe that business cooperation can be the main driving force. A lot of attention is now being paid to security, issues of war and peace, and especially mediated wars ...

- In other words, you work here on your behalf ...

- Absolutely.

“... as a businessman who wants to make his own business agreements?”

- Of course.


According to the head of the presidium of the Council on Foreign and Defense Policy, Fedor Lukyanov, whom he shared with Gazetoy.ruBoth visits should be considered as networking. “There is a short period until the new president’s team has yet been formed. Then there will be officially authorized persons, ”Lukyanov told the publication.

As for Kingston, his visit to Moscow was organized by “the company in which he works,” Inessa Grikurova, a representative of the American Chamber of Commerce, told Gazeta.ru.

This is the lobbyist organization Squire Patton Boggs. Kingston became her employee in February last year. He himself explained this decision by the desire to help businessmen “to find the shortest path in the web of federal laws and various norms in order to better develop business and create jobs”.

One of the partners of Squire Patton Boggs is the former leader of the Senate majority Trent Lott, who is closely associated with Moscow. In 2015, Bloomberg noted that the company earned a lot of money on contracts with energy firms affiliated with the Kremlin. Squire Patton Boggs worked under contracts with a number of large American energy companies that run their business in Russia. Among them is the oil and gas giant Exxon Mobil, whose head, Rex Tillerson, Trump recently offered to take the post of state secretary. According to "Bloomberg", which leads the "Gazeta.ru," Tillerson seven times talked with the head of the US Treasury Jack Liu about sanctions against Russia.

In the meantime, we add, the FBI and the CIA continue to force computer hysteria in the US about Russia's “interference” in the American elections.

FBI Director James Komi and US National Intelligence Director James Clapper agreed with the position of the CIA authorities regarding the hacker "interference" of Moscow in the course of the presidential elections in 2016. This was supposedly done to “help” Donald Trump to take the post of head of state.

Mr Trump responded to these statements with a short tweet. “If many of my supporters acted in the same way and threatened people, as do those who lost the elections, they would be scorned and called them terrible words!” - wrote Republican.

On the website Change.org hanging A petition aimed at collecting 6 of millions of votes and convincing electors to vote not for Trump, but for Clinton. On noon, December 19 collected less than 5 million votes (4,913 million).

Recall, the vote of the electors will be approved by the US Congress 6 January 2017. The inauguration of the newly elected president will take place on January 20.

      And here and guessing is not necessary. There is a probing of the mood of our officials and it seems that the EU may fall into one of the traps that the United States suits Europeans. The meetings are unofficial, but such meetings can cause such a blow that it will not seem enough. As a politician, Trump is not strong, but as an economist and businessman, he is talented, otherwise he would not have crawled out of 4 bankruptcies. http://infomanagement.ru/statya/donald_tramp

          I agree! But here we can talk about something else. As stated by G. Kissinger, Americans have leverage to hold our tongues and fingers together.

            Some say "what is bulo", others - what is not. Here, I read that one black-skinned president, called on the "red line" and threatened Putin (!) With military confrontation, if such hacker attacks take place ...
            In October 2016, US President Barack Obama used the so-called "red telephone" - a special dedicated line of communication - to call Moscow. The parties discussed "the possible consequences of interference with the presidential election in the United States." This is reported by Rambler / News with reference to NBC News.
            In a statement, American journalists cite a senior official. The channel’s informant emphasized that during the conversation Obama said the phrase “armed conflict”.
            “International law, including laws relating to armed conflict, extends to actions in cyberspace. We will evaluate Russia's actions based on these standards, ”Obama said.
            Answering journalists' question whether the words of the American president had an impact on the Russian side, the source emphasized that “nothing happened on election day, which means it worked.”

    It is difficult to say whether the United States will lift the sanctions or not, but the fact that for lifting their own sanctions they will want to get something is a fact.
    It seems that it will be more difficult for us to agree with Trump, since he has experience of ups and downs, which tempered him in life and taught him a lot. Clinton in this regard was more predictable, which means that her actions could be calculated in advance. On the other hand, Trump is not as stubborn as his rival in the presidential race, and so he will bargain and possibly compromise.
    In general, next year will show what to expect from Trump.

      So you need to review all contractual relations, taking into account any sanctions towards Russia.
      Introduced sanctions, pay losses with% -ty. After that, not one .. the science will not dare to introduce them without thinking 10 times and without calculating its losses.

    Let them first pay compensation in gold (preferably with a large tonnage).
    Then maybe we will forgive everyone, but let them remember, whoever removes the last one will pay the most ...

    Russia was visited by two Americans from the environment of Donald trump: Carter Page and Jack Kingston. The theme of the likely lifting of sanctions on Russia goes through these visits.

    This is good news before taking office of the newly elected US President. yes
    In the United States, there is a whole industrial “lobby” that opposes restrictive measures against Russia.

    I think ours took advantage of this in advance. What to say..? Well done our government and all the services under its control. The resulting outcome of their work is obvious. Liberasty in the Russian Federation even want to object? belay
    As the former congressman, elected President Trump "is not obliged to follow Obama's foreign policy" and can "start from a new list."
    He visited Moscow and the adviser to the election headquarters of Donald Trump Carter Page. According to Page, the history of the events of recent years in Ukraine and in the Crimea is one of the most glaring examples of "fake news."


    Former Georgia Congressman Jack Kingston, one of Mr. Trump's aides, admits that the new White House administration should consider lifting sanctions against Russia. This Kingston said in an interview with CNN, reports TASS.

    It seems that ours finally figured out how to use it repeat
    Very promising. I tend to believe Trump. This man is capable of much. He will surprise the stagnant American elite more than once! In this regard, I fear for his life.
    In the USA, such reformers strive first to bang request
    This is not good, at least!
    I wish Trump a normal, fruitful presidency. I think he is a normal, adequate man yes

    I do not idealize Trump, however! He is an entrepreneur who knows how to count money. And now the USA are in crisis. The decline in production and the transfer of production capacities to China (Detroit is not talking about anything?), Growing poverty, stratification between national groups ... He will most likely focus on internal problems, and all sorts of Bandera, Spratia and Pshekia until the bulldogs will be. And Americans will never be friends with Russia - but in vain, they would have slammed the Islamists together and put the English in their place (forgot to see how our Baltic Fleet squadrons stood on the roads of Philadelphia and New York, if I am not mistaken, during the war for independence in the XNUMXth century).
