Victor Bondarev: US sanctions will not undermine the Russian economy

According to Viktor Bondarev, head of the Federation Council Committee on Defense and Security, the economic blockade of the West served Russia in "good service."

“The US sanctions will not be able to undermine the Russian economy and industry,” said Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on Defense and Security Viktor Bondarev (an electronic copy of the statement is available at the Military Review editors).

Bondarev reminded that in the conditions of sanctions the country lives not the first year: “It is not the first year that we live in conditions of sanctions. And Russian President Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin rightly emphasized that in many respects the economic blockade from the West served us well. ”

According to the senator, the real sector of the economy began to actively develop in the Russian Federation, and import substitution programs are being implemented. The domestic defense industry complex, the senator noted, over the past 3 of the year “has become significantly stronger”. In 2016, OPK "became the leader in industrial production growth, surpassing 10%."

Western states have been putting pressure on Russia since 2014. At the same time, Russia has many partners, in addition to the United States and their satellites, the head of the committee emphasized. As a result, despite Western pressure, Russia's export figures are growing. “We find a more favorable market,” said the senator. - In 2015, Russia's military exports amounted to 14,5 billion dollars, and in 2016, it exceeded 15 billion dollars. We are actively exporting weapons to our partners in the SCO, BRICS, EAEU, ASEAN. ” As an example, Mr. Bondarev brought the latest deal with the Philippines.

At the same time, he acknowledged that the new potential anti-Russian sanctions would affect the interaction of the Russian Federation with the United States in Syria.

“Political cooperation between Russia and the United States, of course, will suffer. I think there will be even less constructive interaction in the fight against terrorism in Syria. But before that it was a little bit, because we are fighting against terrorists, and the Americans use the Syrian tragedy for their own purposes, throwing firewood on the fire of war. ”

The topic of sanctions raised is not easy. According to the newspaper "New York Times", D. Trump's administration sent a list of new possible sanctions against Russia to the congressmen. This was done "under pressure from both Republicans and Democrats," the publication said.

Congress received a list of Russian-related organizations that are likely to fall further under new sanctions related to Russia's actions in Eastern Europe, Syria, and in the US presidential election in 2016. Officials explained to lawmakers that they intend to impose sanctions on individuals in the United States (and not only) who conducted “significant” business with Russian enterprises.

The list, the newspaper notes, was “an attempt to appease the critics” of Trump’s team, including Senators John McCain and Benjamin Cardin. A copy of the list is available at the New York Times.

The document points to the Russian defense and intelligence sectors. The United Aircraft Corporation, the Kalashnikov Concern and Rosoboronexport (United Aircraft Corporation; Kalashnikov Concern; Rosoboronexport) are included in the “black list”.

McCain and Cardin have already said that this list of administration "is a step in the right direction."

These two, we add, tormented the Trump team in full compliance with the law he signed. 2 August Donald Trump signed the law on sanctions against Russia, Iran and the DPRK, which stipulated that no later than 1 of October the White House was obliged to provide a list of persons and organizations in the defense and intelligence sectors of Russia to be included in the black list. Team Trump, as we see, was late with the black list for almost a month.

Few people in the West believe in the effectiveness of the notorious sanctions, but the notorious “corporatism”, dependence on the puppeteer and the toothlessness of the rulers of “Europe” do not make it possible to get rid of this “appendix”, which threatens “peritonitis” and troubles greater for the EU than for Russia .

      In 2014, after the imposition of sanctions, our president told the people that this is a year and a half and everything will be settled. Did not come true. Now another mantra - the worse we feel, the better. But why, who was rich became even richer, and the poor became poorer? recourse If nobody canceled the law of conservation of matter, then something is wrong in our control system.

        Maybe he said (I don’t remember). About the poorer and richer I do not know (did not consider). Mantra is not a mantra but ours are pulled up (the same fact). And he is not Cassandra. And if you have resisted and got out somewhere (I think) with control more or less (not ideal). And if you look in retrospect, then everything happened as if evolutionarily, by itself. The Americans did not immediately react. And about the poorer and richer I did not notice, maybe they themselves live and give to others.

By the way, Russia is the first in nuclear energy and at the forefront in space and military, and these are some of the most important sectors in science.

            SOCHI, October 15. / TASS /. Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Russia will take certain steps to return domestic scientists who have gone abroad.
            On December 19, 2016, President Putin signed into law on the federal budget for 2017 and the planning period of 2018 and 2019. The costs of civil science will increase markedly compared to last year: approximately 2017 billion rubles are planned to be spent on these goals in 336. from the federal budget, compared with about 268 billion rubles. in 2016. However, such a sharp increase in spending on civil science compared to last year is associated only with the restoration of the level of funding for applied research and development in the framework of the space program, which decreased by about 5 times in 2016 compared to 2015.

            It is worth recalling that in 2014, 437 billion rubles were spent on civil science from the federal budget. Thus, even without inflation, budgetary spending on civilian research will be almost a quarter lower than three years ago.

            That's it, not farting. Do not watch the TV box!

            In 2015, 350 thousand people emigrated from Russia. This is ten times more than five years ago! Even in the midst of the economic crisis of 2009, the number of emigrants did not exceed 32 thousand people a year. Moreover, the most educated and highly qualified specialists are sitting on suitcases. Among people with higher education, 23 percent want to leave the country. Among youth, 38 percent, and among top managers - 42 percent. Only immigrants from the "Muslim post-Soviet countries" are ready to come to replace them. Russian Deputy Prime Minister Olga Golodets, who oversees the social block, recently reported that “according to various estimates, more than 1,5 million Russians with Russian passports, good training, and completely competitive personnel work outside the Russian Federation. Today it is difficult to find a university in the world, a company where Russians are not present, where Russians do not work, and this is a dangerous trend. ”Deputy Prime Minister Olga Golodets suggested that the brain drain abroad is due to low salaries in Russia. “If we are underpaid for work, and our market is open, then we encourage our youth, the most creative and mobile workers, to travel outside Russia.”
            Learn materiel, woeful patriots. You do not have the maximum knowledge in this area, at the very most capable of stigmatizing and broadcasting labels. Rudeness is a sign of weakness. You, and I, do not represent value for foreign companies, but at least I read books and soberly look at life.

            In early November, a report on science in 2030 was presented at UNESCO headquarters in Paris.
            According to data provided by national statistical organizations, Russia ranks 7th in terms of total expenditures on research and development of science (R&D). The amount of expenditures on the development of science in the Russian Federation in 2013 exceeded $ 40 million, which is 10 times less than the leader of the US rating. China ranks second in terms of spending, with $ 333 million invested in science. Also, the Russian Federation on this indicator was overtaken by Japan, Germany, South Korea and France.

            A similar but more correct indicator is the share of R&D expenditures in total GDP. Here, Russia has already taken 25th place with an indicator of 1,13% according to data for 2012-2013. For comparison, the leader of the rating - Israel - this figure reaches 4,21%. At the same time, according to statistics presented in the report, this figure has decreased over the past ten years. China showed the greatest growth: over the same period, the country increased its indicators from 1,13 to 2,02%. Positive dynamics were also shown by Germany, the USA, Brazil and Turkey.
            In addition, the number of publications by Russian scientists since 2005 has shown slow growth. Their number increased over 9 years from 24 to 29 thousand. For comparison, in South Korea, the indicator almost doubled (from 26 to 50 thousand), as in Brazil (from 17 to 37 thousand). Among the most cited publications, the share of Russian studies is 3,8%, and the citation index of Russian scientists is only 0,51 with an average of 1,02 among G20 participants. The share of Russian publications in collaboration with foreign partners is 33% with an average of 24,6% for the G20. In the modern world, it is almost impossible to claim innovative development without the development of computer technology. The share of Russian publications on this subject is insignificant compared to physics, for example, the UNESCO report shows that at present the role of Russia in the global innovation market is not so great, while the country lags behind in most respects, not being a leader in terms of technology even among countries BRICS: However, success cannot be denied either: development is occurring, albeit at a slow pace. Based on the report, we can conclude: in order to change the situation, it is necessary, first of all, to change the economic structure. If in most countries it is economic growth that determines innovative development, then in Russia this trend does not work. This is due to resource dependence, which pulls science down.

    for sanctions against the defense

    Following the expansion of the food embargo by the Russian government, prices for a range of products will skyrocket. According to the interviewed by URA.RU experts, new restrictions were lobbied by domestic manufacturers. Among the first, sausages, semi-finished products and various types of minced meat will go up in price.

    On Friday, October 27, the Russian government expanded the list of foreign products that fall under the food embargo. “The list of agricultural products, raw materials and food banned for import into Russia includes live pigs, as well as certain types of food by-products and fats of farm animals,” the cabinet said. The government emphasized that the expansion of pro-embargo would not affect the provision of these products to Russians. However, according to Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich, the government, expanding the pro-embargo, closes the gray supply channels.

    What is our mistake?
    These sanctions are forever, they are only children and democrats, they can entertain everyone with the thought of an early end to the sanctions. But the sanctions are designed for decades, for decades! At the moment, sanctions have the opposite effect, consolidation of society and a breakthrough in financing the military-industrial complex. But technological parity will be collapse and the gap will deepen over time, as in the Soviet Union. We are behind in technology and will be behind due to sanctions.
    There are not many options.
    1 Go to repentance to the West, I suspect that this will end very sadly for us.
    2 Invest in R&D
    The second is practically impossible. Our positions of Chubais-Kudrin in the government are strong enough, and we will hang between ............................. ....................

    So that Russia Russian Orthodox, Russian Orthodox, the people of Russia Russian Orthodox, develop, grow stronger and bloom and smell without sanctions. That push, kick to this, there should be no sanctions. And all this was done, the development of Russia Russian Orthodox, Russian Orthodox, the people of Russia Russian Orthodox, by the Russian Orthodox themselves, the people of Russia, the Russian Orthodox, without sanctions, so that not the sanctions were the impetus and the engine, but the desire and will and actions of Russia itself, the Russian Orthodox, Russian Orthodox, the people of Russia the Russian Orthodox.

    Judging by the enormous tail of the line at the American embassy in Moscow and by what is written on the faces of people standing in this line, one can say that they don’t affect anything (sanctions). Those who are in this queue, they are not people, are garbage that decided for some reason to go to the USA. But to be honest, the "real" sanctions of the type for both Iran and the DPRK are still very far away.

    Nobody ever managed to destroy Russia from the outside! But Russia itself was often temporarily destroyed due to slurred, weak and anti-people power! Therefore, only our power can destroy us.

    I would like to think with your head before shouting "Hurray." And it turns out like in the Duma: did you drink champagne for “Trumpnash”? We drank. What is the result?

    When our government begins to live according to the thesis - "sanctions against Russia, this is forever," so you just need to restore the economy and science in the country! !! sad

    What a weird one. 25 years, all plans for the future of our elite is the west. Now, if the West prohibits the entire elite from traveling to all the neighbors from Russia to any country, then a revival of Russia is possible.

    I don’t need to tell such passions, because I myself had to go hungry, but I didn’t blame anyone for that, especially the state (Yeltsin and the 90s were excluded, he “tried” there), each person has hands and a head, and that’s enough. The state is not a kindergarten for sexually mature children, which should lead them by the handle, but for some reason many have illusions on this. Basically, these are the "liberals" of the 21st century who have not seen the 90s, but they know everything and give advice in their 20-25.
    Therefore, again, by :) If everything is measured by satiety and money, this does not mean that everyone needs to be aligned on their own. :)
