V.V. Putin on Western sanctions

38
In the continuation of the “Direct Line”, V. Putin answered questions related to Western sanctions against Russia. In particular, he said that Russia always lived under sanctions, they were introduced when they felt the competition.


When our partners in the world felt in the face of Russia a serious competitor, so under various pretexts some restrictions were imposed. It has been throughout our stories, I don’t even talk about the Soviet era, but it was before. There is nothing surprising
He said during the straight line.

V.V. Putin on Western sanctions


The US Senate is trying to expand sanctions against Russia from scratch, the president added.

Now we know that the US Senate has again raised a bill to toughen these sanctions. Speaking of which, why? After all, nothing extraordinary happens. In this connection, they began to talk about these sanctions from scratch?
- Putin said.

This is evidence of the ongoing domestic political struggle in the States. But nevertheless, it happens, and I think, from scratch
- stressed the president.

The US Senate on Wednesday overwhelmingly approved an amendment to expand anti-Russian sanctions. This amendment is included in the sanctions bill against Iran.

The proposed sanctions against Russia imply a reduction in the maximum term of market financing of Russian banks under sanctions to 14 days, and sub-authorized companies in the oil and gas sector to 30 days. In addition, within 180 days after the introduction of the amendments, the head of the US Treasury must submit a report to Congress describing the possible consequences of extending sanctions to Russia's sovereign debt.

At the same time, Russia lost 50-52 billion dollars from sanctions, and those who entered 100 billion dollars
- Putin said -
The fall in GDP due to sanctions was about 1 percent


When asked about the lifting of our retaliatory sanctions against Western countries, V.V. Putin replied that if the "partners" would lift the sanctions, then Russia will begin to remove: -
If our partners start lifting sanctions, Russia will also do it, otherwise it will face problems with the WTO


Speaking about how the sanctions affected Russia, Putin noted that thanks to them, production in a number of complex industries actually increased in Russia.

We have restored competence in electronics, in aircraft manufacturing, in the missile area, in pharmaceuticals, we now have good processes in heavy engineering
- noted the president.

And I am not talking about agriculture now. We all know, the growth is somewhere around 3% (agricultural production - approx. VO), Russia has become the number one country, the leader in the export of cereals, wheat. We have significantly reduced purchases of imports, our own production of, say, pork meat, poultry meat covers almost completely our needs.
- He said, noting that Russia is looking for markets for them, in particular, to China.

      Yes, unfortunately, until the thunder strikes, but it is possible, and it is necessary to think about it earlier.

        - Putin said -

        We have nothing to lose FORWARD Moscow ..! But in the provinces, these sanctions are ridiculous and incomprehensible to us ...
        I judge the sanctions when they begin to whine and organize bulk meetings in Moscow! And so everything is usual! ..

      Yes, you mean roosters.
      When the growth rate of the Russian economy begins to grow. The West is right there with its concern
      So it was in Ukraine. Maidan 2004 and 2014, since there were economic growth rates.
      Maidan 2014 and the subsequent simultaneously hit both Russia and the European Union economy.
      Here is the Iron Lady about the same: "" The Soviet Union is a country that posed a serious threat to the Western world. I am not talking about a military threat. In essence, it was not. Our countries are quite well armed, including nuclear weapons.

      I mean the economic threat. Thanks to a planned policy and a peculiar combination of moral and material incentives, the Soviet Union managed to achieve high economic indicators. The percentage growth in gross national product was about two times higher than in our countries. If we take into account the enormous natural resources of the USSR, then with the rational management of the economy the Soviet Union had very real opportunities to oust us from world markets.

      Therefore, we have always taken actions aimed at weakening the economy of the Soviet Union and creating internal difficulties for it.
      The main was the imposition of an arms race. ..!

    This has been throughout our history, I am not even talking about the Soviet era, but it used to be. There is nothing surprising
    Naturally, the only surprising thing is that despite all the sanctions, our government continues to invest in US debt obligations! I don’t remember this in our history before

    Putin, stop lying! A loss of 50 billion fell to Russia alone, and a loss of $ 100 billion spread out in 30 countries, against which we introduced counter-sanctions. So who has more losses? But I personally, like many, were ready to endure further, if not for this endless lies and the screening of "fat cats".

        You know, I wanted to do it. But then he began to listen further and realized that it was useless. On the whole, this straight line is beneficial when Putin acts as Tsar Father and those who get through to him will benefit. It’s just unpleasant that at the same time he boasts just like it was during the CPSU, they say, we overcome difficulties and confidently go forward, but there are some drawbacks. But with regard to general issues, it begins to wag (whether to take at least the high cost of loans) or to build a sort of cat Leopold from itself, as in the issue of Ukraine. Leopard change his spots. Only others are even worse, that's annoying, so it's useless. I just wrote that it was really a lie ..

    Presumably the economies of these 30 countries are in no way interconnected? It seems to me that you slightly “distorted” ... Globalism does not exist and the sovereignty of these countries is complete?

      You claim that the economies of 30 countries are interconnected. Suppose you are right and there is a common market within our opponents, although this is not so. But then I’m all the more right, because the loss of 100 billion that they suffer on the scale of an interconnected economy is spread out over the entire colossal amount of their economy, that is, it is even more minimal.

    It’s a pity that the Western partners cannot understand that you can’t solve anything with sanctions, and they impose them on us even more. When Russia weakens, they will still crush us and finish off them; Russia is not important to us, we have always been great competitors for them and will remain them.
