American diplomatic corps in Russia is reduced by two thirds

80
According to information RIA News, Russian President Vladimir Putin reported a reduction in the staff of US diplomatic missions in the Russian Federation to 755 people. As a result, 455 employees should remain, which is similar to the number of domestic diplomats in the United States.

As for other possible measures or whether this is a lot or a little, from the point of view of the work of the diplomatic department, it is quite sensitive. Because more than a thousand employees - diplomats and technical workers - have worked, are still working in Russia, 755 will have to cease its activities in the Russian Federation. It is sensitive. The question is whether you need or not to do (something) and what set we have. We have a small volume of trade and economic ties with the United States. It doesn’t compare with the volume of trade relations, say, with China, with the countries of the European Union, with many other countries of the world. The possibilities are great, but due to various circumstances the volume is small.


American diplomatic corps in Russia is reduced by two thirds


As pointed out in Washington, Moscow’s actions in this direction cause regret and reciprocal steps.

This unjustified measure is regrettable. We assess the impact of such a reduction and how we respond to it. At the moment, no other comments are given.

- Said the representative of the US Foreign Ministry.

        So Vladimir Ilyich was mistaken?
        1. And on the other hand, the result is on the face. He just can’t do it, he can’t save what is beneficial to the USA. Our blow to their diplomatic corps is a blow to the sub. There will be no cookies in the bulk.
        2. As additional measures, it is time to introduce restrictions on their missionary and "educational" activities on our territory.
        3. Close 4000 NPOs with total funding of 70 billion rubles.

          Lenin wrote far from this: "We are not utopians. We know that any laborer and any cook are not capable of immediately taking control of the state. In this we agree with the Cadets, and with Breshkovskaya, and with Tsereteli. But we differ from these citizens in that we demand an immediate break with the prejudice that it is to run the state, to carry out the everyday, daily work of the administration, only rich or from rich families officials can take ...

            For some reason, I have a firm conviction that everything is not so simple in the USA as it seems to us. In my opinion, the US is undergoing a fairly deep process of redistribution of power, or more correctly, the change of elite.
            Trump, at the moment, is cornered, at least everyone thinks so, but ..... Trump is far from being, and so just will not be given into his hands.
            A peculiar forecast for the future:
            July 4, 2018 will be a significant event in the life of the United States, and not only a historical holiday Independence Day, but also real events in honor of this holiday.
            On July 4, 2018, the U.S. Senate will be dispersed. And this procedure will be conducted by the current President of the United States Trump.

            Prerequisites for this action:
            - At the moment, well, in the future, all the projects submitted by Tram to the Senate for consideration are “hanging” and continue to “hang”. All of these Trump projects were voiced in his campaign company, these and other projects aimed at improving the life of an ordinary average American.
            - Tram, at the moment, is securing the support of the army and the military lobby, and is also trying to enlist the support of special services. He "bought" the army with the opportunity to increase the budget for military spending, military lobbies by concluding large contracts for the production and sale of weapons, both in the US Army and outside the United States (one amount with the Saudis of 110 billion, which costs)
            - Support for the special services "is bought by the fact that these same special services are given many powers that they either took away from them before, or they never had any. Special services for the most part get more tactical freedom and freedom of maneuver.
            - Constant pressure on Trump, cannot but lead to the fact that this pressure itself will lead to the reverse process (action is equal to counteraction)
            - Tramp's constant accusations that he (most likely) did not commit, of course, spoil Trump's reputation, but at the same time spoil the reputation of his opponents. And if Trump does not lose so much in glasses, then his opponents, with constant punctures, lose enough.
            - The threat of impeachment to Trump in the near future is just a threat, the Republicans (the majority in the Senate) are well aware that the impeachment of the President (Republican) will inflict huge damage on them in political glasses. And that’s why impeachment is postponed until the next Senate election in November 2018.

            So. Why is it all the same on July 4, 2018?
            1. Trump is essentially a showman, and it is in connection with this that this date will be chosen Independence Day from the elites leading the country in the wrong direction
            2. From July 4, 2018 to November 2018 (Senate elections), about 4 months, ample time to calm down the unrest. The necessary time for a new Senate election to take place is likely already on new conditions and according to new rules
            3. Will Trump remain president after such events? Most likely not, at the beginning of the events, Trump will most likely announce his resignation from the presidency, but after the Senate elections. That is, the departure of Trump will be in January 2019 (2 years of rule). Acting president will take the place of Trump (for the remaining 2 years), and here there are several possible solutions:
            - either Trump will appoint his own receiver (high probability)
            - either the new Senate will appoint him (medium probability)
            - either, full presidential elections will be held (low probability)

            Perhaps I am not right in assessing events, perhaps this will not happen, but in my opinion there are a lot of prerequisites for this.
            And let it not be exactly the way I described, but the fact that in 2018, the USA will be shocked by political cataclysms, this is unambiguous and I think this simply can not be avoided.

            Z.Y. All thoughts, all conclusions, all comparisons are my personal opinion, and do not claim to be true

              You do not quite imagine the mechanism for exercising power in the United States. And why in your discussions there are no such important components of the American state system as the House of Representatives of the US Congress (it is she who has the decisive vote in matters of approving the country's budget and it is in it that the vast majority of bills are put forward) and the US Supreme Court? The latter body, by the way, has unquestioned authority and may even cancel laws passed by Congress and signed by the President if they, in the opinion of its members, are contrary to the US Constitution. In the United States, the judiciary has tremendous authority. At the same time, paradoxically, most judges do not hide their sympathy for the Democrats or Republicans.
              In general, in the USA, the President does not have the right to dissolve either the Senate or the House of Representatives. In no case. Not once in the history of the country have there even been attempts at this kind of action. True, the chambers of Congress are not eligible to resign from the President. Impeachment is the removal of the President from office for the crimes committed, and not for his policies. And this process is very complex and multi-stage. It involves both houses of Congress and the federal judiciary.
              It would be easier for Trump to try to influence the change in the composition of the Congress during the upcoming elections. Fortunately, the House of Representatives as a whole is re-elected every two years, and the Senate is replaced by a third every two years.
              By the way, most senators and congressmen have been sitting in Congress for almost decades. And the backbone of the state apparatus (except for political appointees) is also in the service for many years. Presidents are changing, and officials always need to find a common language with congressmen.

                Sorry, for the possible lack of knowledge of the entire structure of the legislative branch in the OSHA, but this does not change the essence. In fact, the Senate, Congress, the House of Representatives, there is a difference in clerical work, but in the events I have described, this is completely different.

                And who is talking about legal dissolution? I just described the illegal dissolution, in fact a power seizure of power. The fact that this did not happen before that, well ... there were a lot of things, and then it appeared. The presidency of Trump can also be considered one of the wonders of the world.

                      The bipartisan system in the United States and used in the elections to representative bodies at the federal level and in the vast majority of states, the majority system of the relative majority does not allow those forces to be represented in them, which can hold a quarter and a third of the population across the country or state, but which there is no chance to go first in the vast majority of single-mandate constituencies. But the US political elites do not want to introduce a proportional system, or at least its elements, or even the election of at least a small part of congressmen on its basis.

                        As for your scenario, when Trump can change the composition and get more supporters in Congresses, in the Senates, then this scenario looks even more utopian

            Sorry to correct you a little. But the Senate is the second, upper house of Congress. And the lower house is the House of Representatives. The laws of the chamber are adopted jointly. Only the Senate is involved in the approval of the President of the United States for senior positions. But in financial matters, the House of Representatives has priority.

      So this is not a response to sanctions. This is bringing the relationship into an equivalent position. And this is a belated reaction. It was precisely such parity that the dip of workers was under the USSR, and only with EBN did the parity change. To punish a partner, you need to deprive him of something more.

      In this case, please note, this is a half measure. So far, there is just an equalization of the number of representatives of the diplomatic mission on both sides to 455 people. The United States itself gave rise to the possibility of cutting off their numbers, which earlier Russia simply could not do in view of the fact that it was necessary to find (invent) an excuse to reduce their mission. It is interesting that even now, they have not yet answered for the expelled 35 of our diplomats. In which case, from the 455 remaining Americans, we can take away another 35 for Obama’s December sin.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a decrease in the staff of US diplomatic missions in the Russian Federation by 755 people. The result should be 455 employees

    The places of the departed mattress diplomats will be replaced by our valiant Navalny, Sytins, Gozmans, Kasyanovs and other respected people in the mattress State Department.

      Nope. Nifiga they are not respected there. A servile servant can never arouse respect from the owner. He is simply an instrument, a thing, an asset.

    For once, EXCELLENT news!
    Still, they would start supplying trampolines instead of the RD-180 - and in general beauty would be. Some figs, trade between the Russian Federation and the USA is really small, so we will manage without their dollars for the engines and not even notice, but they will learn trampolines. Well, or ask the Chinese mega-slingshot with an elastic band. And so pulled.

    There has already been talk that the reduction will affect primarily Russian citizens working in the US embassy. One way or another, but with espionage, subversive activities of the Americans in Russia must be stopped. And we must ensure that the Americans do not harm our citizens. A wounded beast is doubly more dangerous.

      Is this really the answer to the sanctions? In my opinion, the answer to sanctions is yet to come, and this is a response to the endless expulsion of Russian diplomats and a ban on the use of real estate owned by the Russian diplomatic corps, which occurred some time ago and remained unanswered.

    The main thing is to bring the matter to an end and really reduce it by 755 people .... And now they will again “back up” in the spirit: “We, having conferred with Comrade Tillerson, decided to limit ourselves to the rotation of 35 diplomats” ...

    Responses, of course, were needed, but compared with the actions of the United States, they look very faded. It’s the same as a neighbor took half of the land, and I broke a vase for him. But, unfortunately, we cannot answer with something more serious.

To win over planned and according to results - unscheduled inspections. In nature, there is not a single thing (enterprise, foundation, organization, at least commercial, at least not), which cannot be attached.

    The position in terms of the number of US deep corps in Russia should be further tightened. The population of the Russian Federation is 144 mil. people, and the USA is 328 mil. person. The US deep corps should be half of the Russian, i.e. the US deep corps should not exceed 220 employees. It is necessary to close the Center of the Alkash, all political NGOs, Ekho Moskvy. Deprive Russian citizenship of Kozyrev and other "Americans" who left to live there. Often in the 80s I had to go to the USA on official business. I received visas at the US Embassy and there was nothing to worry about. I have the honor.

    Diplomatic relations between the USA and the USSR were established in November 1933. Bullitt, the first US ambassador to Moscow, wrote to the State Department in 1936: "Under no circumstances should spies be sent to the Soviet Union. There is no more effective or more disarming means in relations with the Communists than absolute honesty."

    However, during the expulsion of Soviet diplomats, embassy drivers, all employees of the UPDK (Office for the Maintenance of the Diplomatic Corps) went on strike and this paralyzed the work of the embassy. After that, the mattresses did not try to practice the expulsion of diplomats.
