Brennan: Anti-Russian sanctions have become "extremely painful"

Former CIA head John Brennon believes that anti-Russian sanctions have become "extremely painful" for Moscow, reports RIA News

I believe that these (sanctions) are extremely painful and I am sure that one of the priorities (of the President of the Russian Federation) Vladimir Putin is to try to reduce the sanctions. His strategy is to separate European countries from US efforts to impose sanctions.
- he said, speaking at the Senate hearing -
Mr Putin wants sanctions lifted as early as possible


Brennan: Anti-Russian sanctions have become "extremely painful"


Russia and the West have deteriorated over the situation in Crimea and Ukraine. In late July 2014, the EU and the United States from the point of sanctions against certain individuals and companies have moved to the measures against entire sectors of the Russian economy. In response, Russia restricted imports of food products from countries that have imposed sanctions against her: USA, EU, Canada, Australia and Norway.

Moscow has repeatedly stated that he considers absurd to link the sanctions of the West with the implementation of the Minsk agreements on Ukraine, since Russia is not a party to the conflict and the subject of internal Ukrainian agreements on the settlement. Also, Moscow has repeatedly said that to speak with the Russian language of sanctions is counterproductive.

        Brandy is dissatisfied with the fact that Europeans are no longer paying attention to America. Sanctions are preventing them from putting pressure on them, because it turns out they also want to eat.

              And the bearded ones didn’t leave there .. For many years there has been a guerrilla war, mainly in the southern part of the Philippines. Now everything has become aggravated ...

          The sanctions are already sickened. Just today I thought: to do this, to throw off a clearly defined tummy. Then he saw the dumplings on the table and decided that I would think about it tomorrow. Not, well, really, the impression is that they feed me in spite of sanctions. Sanctions are sick of it!

      To the benefit and most importantly, we are not going to establish an "iron curtain" and isolate ourselves from the west .. In vain they hope so! It is difficult of course, especially to ordinary people in Russia, but let them not count on confusion and rebellion (all this has already happened ..) And the authorities would be reminded of 100 years 1917! We can repeat it again ... soldier This also applies to the West!

          Why did you get this? Just do not make analogies with the Civil War! Workers and peasants fought there (among the masses) with the Cossacks. And now who will fight against whom? Who will stand up for the oligarchs? Will you go for them? Yes, even no revolution is needed, just move them away from power.

            And that moves easily? Half the country brains compiled.
            No displacement from the power of the snickering elite will not pass without a lot of blood. Putin understands this and therefore the processing is "piece by piece." Berezovsky, Khodarkovsky, Nemtsov - these are the tip of the iceberg that caused a stir in the media. And so you look - here the governor was removed, there the corrupt official was imprisoned.

            What a smart stas you are! You want a small victorious revolution (probably following the example of a small victorious war). It's just that usually such wars end in defeat, and small revolutions develop into a universal bloody massacre.
            So if everything goes according to your scenario, then it would be better for everyone to quickly execute the revolutionaries - for edification.

      If oil prices were $ 100, as before, I think everyone would just laugh and not understand what kind of sanctions this is. As for theft, they began to do more, work, more, and live worse. In April, our income decreased by 8% in comparison with 2016. But this is not a problem of sanction, but of oil prices, since we are a commodity economy. And our leadership is to blame for this, which makes little effort to change something. For at least 17 years they haven’t done a damn thing. And the most annoying thing is that DAM is still the prime minister.

                Sasha, I was given the special distribution of a hedgehog. He brought it home, shouted at home “cook a frying pan”, took out a hedgehog and what do I see?

                I poured him milk. Night has come. He stomped around the apartment until morning. In the morning, two of my cats looked at me viciously. He ate their monthly supply of feed. I realized that I would not die by my death and carried the hedgehog to the forest. Right now we are in correspondence.

              MOSCOW, May 18, 2017, 14:24 - REGNUM The funds available in the Russian Reserve Fund will end in 2017, after which the spending of the National Welfare Fund will begin, Russian Finance Minister Anton Siluanov told reporters on May 18.
              “In accordance with the budget, the Reserve Fund will be spent,” the Minister of Finance said. “We will begin to use the funds of the National Welfare Fund, this is stated in the budget.”

              In 2018, the Reserve Fund is planned to be restored. So, it will receive income from the sale of oil and gas in the amount of 623 billion rubles.
              Recall that the Reserve Fund of the Russian Federation was formed in 2008. The size of the fund is annually approved by federal law. Revenues to the Reserve Fund come from the oil and gas revenues of the federal budget.

So they planned a lot of things 18 mil. jobs etc Trump plans to sell US strategic oil reserves, if he does, oil prices will collapse. And the USA will become the largest sellers of oil along with s.arabia and Russia. So when our government is planning, you need to listen and be sure that it will be exactly the opposite.

        We have enough fields in the field of sowing, there is more grain than now, there’s nowhere to put it.
        The areas of orchards and vineyards increased sharply, but this began even before the sanctions.
        But after the sanctions with the introduction of counter-sanctions, the area of ​​hotbeds increased, therefore it is impossible to cancel the counter-sanctions - from the word completely - otherwise the people will go bankrupt.

    This is called a "false target." Matrasia is convinced that the sanctions were "torn to shreds", and every morning we begin with a prayer for lifting the sanctions. And they build their behavior based on this paradigm. But this is a mistake. The sanctions "shook" Russia, gave rise to sharply deal with corruption, the "cut" of the defense budget, etc. Improved the financial system, really reduced INFLATION.

    Dear, sanctions against Russia, according to the United States, certainly harm economies like Russia and the EU, but trade with the United States itself has grown, so the question is who needs them more. But for the sake of justice, it was the sanctions that showed our dependence and that means vulnerability, despite the fact that money is leaving the country, and the government is dreaming of foreign investment. So who is right? Sanctions are Russia's chance to reach a new independent level, if we pursue the right economic policy. And our leadership is all rushing towards the West, then to Asia

    These sanctions against Russia-will be a sword against the United States. They will still regret why they introduced. Already today they will bite their teeth together - why Russia is producing highly technological weapons, much faster and more precisely than American ones. Already today, the Allies are in a panic, why they got in touch with America and these sanctions. What Russia lost is only increased its production and agriculture raised. Already today they began to feed others. A few more years and wake up to feed ourselves. We must also award the Nobel Prize for the sanctions to America, as they helped us a lot, otherwise they would slip. It comes to pass - they quickly began to get to their feet, they will still envy us.

      We do not have this on arable land. But I see no reason for pride here. The land in vast Russia is full of high-quality dredges. And very few people live on this huge Russian land. Under the USSR, wheat was imported into the USSR, but now, on the contrary, Russia exports wheat, which means that Russian agriculture is quite efficient. And the fact that everything in the photo is overgrown with grass is good, nature is resting from man.

          We have a lot of unaccounted for territories that do not belong to collective farms, but are seeded, this can be observed along the routes, all because of the desire to increase productivity indicators. Here is just such land, which would have been expropriated by the collective farm for the sake of indicators. And there would be this wreck in the middle of an earshot field.

    Sanctions blocked access to cheap money, and this really affects our economy. "The problem in the financial sector is that all major world banks necessarily have either a branch in the US or operate through the dollar. And, therefore, they somehow deal with the US market. The main financial sanctions against Russia are imposed by the United States. Even if Europe if he decides to abolish them, the American sanctions will remain in force. If, say, some French bank gives loans to a Russian company that is under American sanctions, then it gets a gigantic fine in America and generally for closing a business there. Not a single Russian loan It’s worth banking business in America, so even if the Europeans lift their sanctions, Moscow doesn’t feel better at all.
    Be that as it may, sanctions harm Russia: while foreign concerns shifted to other markets, Russian banks were unable to find alternative sources of financing. Sanctions also prohibit large state organizations from selling new shares abroad.
    Investors from other countries also keep a distance from caution - maybe this does not jeopardize the existence of banks, but it contributes to the buildup of capital deficits and more expensive investments. "

      It seems to me that the Crimean option is possible, when special banks were created to ensure the operation of enterprises there, which are not related either to the United States or to Europe. If some large company wants to deal with Russia, there are, for example, Total, then no one bothers to create its own bank to ensure financing of the transaction, capitalizing it partly from the company’s funds, partly in the share of future profit from the customer’s funds. Yes, such a bank will not bring profit, but it will pay off by increasing the share of profit of a foreign company after the completion of the project. Yes, at the same time, our country incurs a loss (of what size - how did you manage to bargain). But it will still not be a bonded deal, such as Sakhalin.

    I quote: "Moscow has repeatedly stated that speaking with the Russian language in the language of sanctions is counterproductive". It is necessary for our authorities to change the rhetoric. Maybe I quibble, but I always tried and demanded from others that they should be expressed so that there was no room for other interpretations. Two blunders of our authorities in one sentence. Talking with the sanction language with Moscow is counterproductive for who? It’s just productive for them, otherwise they would not have imposed sanctions. And secondly, why is this word counterproductive, it just hints that we are very ill from the sanctions. We need to be more clear.

    This is not Mr. Putin who wants, but those who are used to selling Russia’s bowels for Western tsatskis, because they really don’t want to work and do not know how! And he who wants to work for his own benefit and the people is only happy with these sanctions! The technological lag in some areas of industry, destroyed with the help of Russian liberal friends of the Brennans, is being overcome, although not as fast as one wants. But for this it is necessary to adopt a whole package of economic laws, which are opposed by these very friends of the brendans! angry

    If the sanctions were really painful for Russia, it would be all the more extreme - no Brennans would have to talk about this) As for lifting the sanctions, almost 3.5 years have passed. Russia did not hit a finger in order to at least discuss with someone the conditions for lifting sanctions. But European politicians go to Russia en masse and beg to lift sanctions from them) Therefore, as Wasserman said: “we should not give the West a reason to decide that the sanctions are ineffective, because then they can really be lifted and there’s nothing good Russia will not bring "
