"With the lifting of sanctions, the" Russian bear "will become a monster"

59
In the United States are afraid that the lifting of sanctions will lead to a sharp increase in the Armed Forces of Russia, writes Defense One.



“A number of military experts in the United States have concerns that the possible lifting of anti-Russian sanctions by Donald Trump will allow the Russian defense industry to gain access to some of the most important technologies, which will significantly enhance Russia's military potential,” the article quotes RIA News.

The publication notes that the Russian armed forces are considered second only to the US, emphasizing "the perfection of Russian air defense systems, armored vehicles, as well as fifth-generation fighter aircraft under development."

In addition, the Russian army is growing quantitatively. So in 2014, the First Guards was recreated tank army stationed in the west of the country.
This army affects the situation in Europe by the very fact of its existence: it forces the units sent for reinforcement to the Baltic states to shudder, and Eastern European countries are scared to death,
quotes the publication of the head of the Independent Potomac Institute for Political Studies, Pentagon consultant Philip Carber.

According to the author of the article, "access to technology from the list of US military products will increase the already significant Russian military power, turning the" Russian bear "into a real monster." However, he notes that although the existing sanctions do not constitute an insurmountable obstacle to the development of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, they nevertheless "seriously complicate the obtaining of military-important technologies."

But if all restrictions are removed from Moscow, this task will be greatly simplified, the publication concludes.

        Unfortunately it will be difficult. The economy is at war. Influence expands the economy. Weapons only reinforce the existing economic power, and expanding it with weapons is inefficient. Capturing something else does not mean getting something from it. To master the occupied territory is much more difficult and more expensive than just to occupy. Therefore, the army in the modern world is secondary to economic influence. Without economic power, a military will always be like a cart in front of a horse. The US is more concerned about China, as its military power is combined with economic power. And the troops in Europe are only to calm the allies.

            Taiwan is the rebellious province of the PRC, which, in turn, considers the territory of the PRC occupied by "communist rebels."
            Vietnam, with all the disputes and disagreements, considers China to be an ideological ally and almost an "elder brother." The official position of the SRV is this - territorial disputes with the PRC are a sad misunderstanding. The PRC has the same position regarding disputes with the SRV.))

          This is partly true, but no one excludes such an “insignificant” property of the army as to dust someone’s developed economy and thereby raise their own, by seizing equipment and technologies, as well as honestly redistributing other assets and gold and foreign exchange reserves the winner’s favor))). By the way, Russia never plundered the defeated enemy to the last line and allowed the defeated side to rebuild its well-being. Even Germany did not receive full compensation for the damage caused to the USSR. But parasites and our generosity do not appreciate ..... You must admit that the European economy in 1941 was more developed than the economy of the USSR, and the Wehrmacht army, in terms of technology, was an order of magnitude higher than the Red Army. However, we won. I'm not talking about the economy of the United States and Vietnam ..........

            You make a mistake when you evaluate the "Europe" of 1941 as a whole and contrast the USSR. There was none. Each country in Europe had its own economy; it was not united. In terms of industrial production, the USSR really lost in many things, but this was due to the collapse of the country, the civil war and restrictions on international cooperation, which prevented the penetration of new technologies into the USSR. However, the USSR did not completely curtail international cooperation. Many large industrial enterprises of the country were actually built by foreigners. The Stalingrad Tractor Plant was mounted by an American contractor. The plant was manufactured in the USA, assembled, then dismantled and transported to the USSR by ships and mounted in a new place. Therefore, the industry of the USSR in the prewar years was created in many respects with the involvement of Western experts, despite the politics. And economically, the USSR was gaining strength, but the administrative model of the economy itself and the war certainly crippled us. Lend-lease helped a lot in this regard. Opponents of its significance say that the overall percentage of deliveries was small compared to general production in the USSR. But they are cunning, since Lend-Lease supplied a lot of critically important raw materials and goods without which the production of many items of military products was simply impossible physically. For example, the mobility of the army and the rear was almost completely ensured by foreign trucks.

              You climb into the wilds. Definitely - in 1941, evaluating the economy in conjunction with the army, the USSR was weaker than Germany. As for the Lend Lease, he went only when it became clear that Germany would not win this war. And yet, yes, Western support in the provision of goods and materials and Lend-Lease Armaments was not free of charge, not as a goodwill gesture, but for voiced yellow metal that the USSR shipped in exchange for supplies. I also remember that after the war we returned to our “partners” the surviving equipment delivered according to Lend-Lease, including the trucks you mentioned, which they immediately turned into scrap metal and sent for re-melting. Everything is conditional and not so simple, but of our "partnership" relations.

                It is difficult to say here, in terms of military production the USSR was significantly ahead. Even if you look at the performance indicators of the main military products. We have always surpassed Germany in the production of tanks and self-propelled guns, we just lost them very quickly, but this is a different story. Before the war, in general, we had 13 tanks in the border districts, and there were about 000 new models that exceeded all that the Wehrmacht had, but we could not apply them correctly, and the organizational structure of the Mehkorpus arr. 2000 was extremely unsuccessful, cumbersome, uncontrollable in a real battle, which largely predetermined the rout.

        Do not confuse completely different situations! Rejoice at gas flows, gum convoys and “world respect”, having a collapsed currency of 100% (in other oil-producing countries, the national currency fell by 13% max) gas is more expensive than in Belarus and so on!

          I had already heard this. Like, we won’t fight for Abramovich’s yachts and Vekselberg’s diamonds. It only says that these people are not going to fight for anyone and for nothing. And they will always find a beautiful excuse for themselves. You know, it smells ..
          And the patriot protects first of all his country, people, home, family, and then everything else.

      Schizophrenia - do not go to the polls, and then scold the authorities from the sofas, who came up with your tacit connivance.

    "This army influences the situation in Europe by the very fact of its existence: it makes the units sent for reinforcements to the Baltic states shudder, and it scares Eastern European countries to death"

    I wish this were true. Only here, for example, residents of the Baltic states are more afraid of the presence of American tanks in their countries than Russian tanks, albeit at the western borders, but standing on their territory.

    Are they seriously afraid, afraid? Or is the defense industry paying them for this?
    Judging by all the sources gone, heard, read, so at tea, spent time ... high-ranking "alarmists" and "experts" money row such that Serdyukov is as equal to them as a gopnik compared to a thief in law .. Well, Mr. McCain, as one of the oldest in terms of bullying, knocking out and distributing, has so much kickback ... In general,. If he pretends to be a nuclear war, then he will need paper candy wrappers, empty plastic cards and even gold ... In that world, clean food and non-radioactive drink will be appreciated. AND! Also a great personal weapon ...

    it shudders units sent for reinforcements to the Baltic states, and scares Eastern European countries to death,

    And if this army is a militant step, but on the parade ground ... then these units will die to death?

    Just some kind of nonsense: "A number of military experts in the United States have concerns that the possible lifting of anti-Russian sanctions by Donald Trump will allow the Russian defense industry to gain access to some important technologies, which will significantly strengthen Russia's military potential."
    Fears, concerns, sanctions have nothing to do with it, access to technology can always be obtained, and not only legally. wink

    In the United States are afraid that the lifting of sanctions will lead to a sharp increase in the Armed Forces of Russia, writes Defense One.

    It was necessary to be afraid in 2014, when all this bodyagie from the American pitch started.
    And now, upon the sharp increase in Russia militarily, there are two options.
    Or by your opinion after the lifting of sanctions, the Russian armed forces will increase dramatically, or after tougher sanctions on the fact of 14-16 years, the Russian armed forces will increase even more.
    The result is the same - so relax and have fun.
