Abduction of Europe. Russia

65
German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel made a visit to Kiev, where he made a “pro-Ukrainian” statement about the need to introduce an armed “strong peacekeeping mission” to the entire territory of Donbass, calling the situation very dangerous. As for the decision to supply the US lethal weapons In the conflict zone, official Berlin expressed only doubt about their expediency. Considering that Sigmar Gabriel had previously held quite adequate joint press conferences with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, this is a clear bias of Berlin’s policy towards Washington, and a departure from the Minsk agreements, as indicated by Russian political analysts.




Here you can say, of course, that Sigmar is a “lame duck” from the old government of Angela Merkel, that Merkel cannot form the German government after the last election, that this pause was prolonged scandalously. However, this pro-American statement by Sigmar says that the German government crisis itself is a consequence of the struggle to choose a political course in the face of growing pressure from Washington on Europe, already supported by sanctions against European companies for relations with Russian counterparties, primarily for construction "Nord Stream - 2".

Germany wants to get cheap Russian pipe gas, and show Atlantic solidarity to Washington. The settlement of Sigmar and the German circles behind them is simple: if Russia agrees to bring peacekeepers to Donbass on American terms, followed by its capture by Bandera, then there is a chance to continue the construction of the joint venture 2 and, in general, to maintain current economic relations with Russia.

What Sigmar Gabriel and the company are counting on is not clear: Vladimir Putin has already said that Russia will not allow a repetition of the Srebrenica massacre in the Donbas. For Russia, this is unacceptable. The hopes on the “strong” peacekeeping mission of Zigmar and other Western politicians are meant to relieve this concern of Russia, but after they have given Kiev the fulfillment of the Minsk agreements, Moscow will give that answer to their own arbitrariness. Strategically, it is ridiculous to think that Washington will be satisfied with the concession of Russia in the Donbass, he will consider this a manifestation of weakness and continue his policy of stirring up conflicts on the borders of Russia itself.

For Europe, and especially Germany, in Donbass there comes a moment of truth in their relations with the United States. Recall that President Trump calls Germany a “bad country,” and this is not only his personal opinion: his adviser and Nobel laureate in economics Stiglitz and part of the American economic elite also believe him. Germany has become a serious economic competitor of the United States, the trade balance between the countries has long been not in favor of the United States. Deliveries of liquefied gas from America to Germany, instead of Gazprom’s pipe, could smooth out the current trade imbalance between countries.

In Germany, they understand what Trump Washington wants, and Angela Merkel makes a sensational statement that from now on Europe should rely only on her own strength. The leader of the SPD, Martin Schulz, although a formal political opponent of Merkel, says that the United States of Europe needs to be built, Merkel's protege in the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, has long spoken about the need to create a European army, and today we see the first steps to create it, slightly disguised. What does Russian gas have to do with it, and Nord Stream - 2, in particular?

The open secret is that the competitiveness of the German economy rests on relatively cheap Russian pipe gas coming under significant long-term contracts. Therefore, it is cheaper than gas supplied to Poland and to other countries in relatively small volumes, this is a common economic practice.

Replacing Russian gas with American liquefied gas, which is about 30% more expensive, makes Germany, and Europe as a whole, not competitive. In the future, the European economy will face the fate of the Ukrainian economy, which has already been bent without Russian gas. Germany is fighting not only for the joint venture 2, but for the competitiveness of its economy, and the United States wants to bend the German economy under itself, so they need to break Europe’s energy relations with Russia and impose their liquefied gas on Europe.

Russia, selling its energy resources, buys technologies in Germany and Europe of a general nature, without dual use, however, it can buy such technologies in Asia, for example, in China. It is quite possible to find Chinese and other analogues for high-speed railway trains, for Siemens turbines, Russia needs only to arrange energy supplies to Asia, which it is doing now. But whether Germany can find a similar Russian market for its turbines and trains is a big question.

Germany has to choose between its purse with the remnants of sovereignty and Atlantic discipline, most likely, this is the reason for the post-electoral “uncertainty of Merkel”, which in no way can form the new German government. In the German elites there is a struggle over relations with Russia and the United States. Washington calls it the “subversive activity of Russia”, as if “the abduction of Europe by Russia” from the American sphere of influence, but, we note, by mutual consent of the parties.

    “For Europe, and especially Germany, in the Donbass there comes a moment of truth in their relations with the United States.” This is not for Europe a moment of truth. But for the Kremlin. What is most important is gas revenues or the lives of people in the Donbass.

      Unfortunately, the collapse of Ukraine is inevitable. It’s not possible to completely drag it into NATO, it’s not Lithuania, Ukraine is twice as large as the former Yugoslavia. Russia now can only protect the Donbass Wedge (the DPR and LPR do not fully control their areas). hi

          Trump calls Germany "Bad country"
          A defeated and occupied Germany with a controlled Merkel in peacetime suited the States. Now the Rockefellers have decided that a third War is needed to "eliminate" the public debt and further development. Clinton, like a shaman, called on her and Trump, as he did not rest, they "twisted". He was made clear that he would be faced with the fate of Kennedy if he did not unleash a conflict. Germany is the geographical and economic center of Europe, and the States will do everything to actively participate. Weapons are being imported by the States and still being delivered. The main question is where find Hitler. Napoleon will definitely not be there anymore, in France 50% of the energy is nuclear power plants and it is far from Russia. War is not a woman’s business and Merkel, the daughter of a pastor is not suitable. But the main, big work to unleash the conflict has been done - the theater of war has been shifted far east, under Rostov itself. They are preparing the first echelon of the Armed Forces with the "Maydanut", the second - the Poles and the Baltic states, the third Bundeswehr, the detachment - the US Marines. If Russia now introduces its peacekeepers to Donbas, there will not be much blood there, they will be afraid to attack. Surely the year will squeal, as after 080808, then they will get used to it. If they provoke and launch a massive attack, a lot of civilians may die - Donetsk is not Tskhinval and the shock fist is many times more. And Donbas will have to be saved anyway.

      How would you correctly rephrase, or rather even correct it ... can you please answer what Donbass wants? Yes, everyone knows very well what Ukraine did many years ago ... independence, freedom ... and with what fright, let me ask the country should sway huge grandmothers to defend the Donbass, if the Donbass is not eager to return to Russia, and with what fright then restore it .. in order to get the same thing in Ukraine in 20-23 years, you say .. so brothers, and Ukrainians were once brothers .. and the bulbs of the weathervane are still those! Why Donbass He doesn’t hold referendums, doesn’t vote for entering the Russian Federation, but there’s no friend, the princes need their kingdoms there ... Vanya help, protect, restore, and leave alone ... And not one sensible politician, in such an open war he’ll climb, and I consider Putin to be the one who owns the situation! But you probably would have bled your country in order to save a couple of regions with the population ... which you would stab in the back and don’t need to tell me about the Russian inhabitants of Donbass, there are the same Ukrainians .. just a little talk from zapadentsev another!

    if you don’t shove the cards, you get a Yankees vassal. the deck is speckled. in my opinion, almost all the less or less significant geyropi policies are hooked by the NSA. and does Merkel herself want an acute crisis with the Yankees? in my opinion she wants to eat carrots and climb on the Christmas tree. the sunset of its popularity is felt, no matter how different analysts smooth out the corners, but the right in the geyrop is already a force. the only question is whether they can deploy the “hut” back to the Yankees, front to us? and in the wake of the Donbass, all Wishlist of the West are crumbling before the iron arguments of GDP. this year in general will be decisive, I think so.

    then a clear roll of the policy of Berlin towards Washington, and a departure from the Minsk agreements
    So Berlin is constantly at a loss to Washington, even at a loss, and they immediately departed from Minsk after signing the agreement. It is disgusting that a German in such a position offers a deliberately non-passing option and "fakes" (pretending to be concerned about the situation) in front of Kiev.

    Germany showed its rotten gut with a statement about the need to introduce an armed "strong peacekeeping mission" throughout the Donbass, but the author did not finish the speech. Fritz will do this under one condition, the complete elimination of the DPR and the LPR as republics. To make such ghettos as with the Indians, or Palestinians. And then cut it, as Bandera said.

    Yes, I liked the article ... but some questions appeared .. how dependent is Europe on Russia? Can it really not exist without Moscow and be the 3rd economic center? Has the author really suffered? After all, comparing Europe and Russia is not comparable finance, neither economics nor prospects.
    Gas contracts strengthened Europe and not Russia, the profits from them are still not used for the development of the country, but as a rule it leaves again to Europe or America.
    Russia today can offer nothing but raw materials, and the market is extremely vulnerable, China is not particularly eager to implement gas contracts with Moscow, and Europe can and does dictate its conditions, and Moscow can not oppose them.

      Europe’s dependence on Russian gas has risen to 40%. As for comparability - this is a great secret and is covered with a financial bubble, for which the production of steel, the production of smiles in the service sector - does not make a difference. If we discard the production of smiles, then in steel and other such assets Russia is in the top five countries. This confirms the VKS - can not "incomparable economy" to create comparable in quality and power of weapons! In this miracle, all close their eyes, but it really flies and shoots.
      The financial bubble may burst, many are talking about this, but the real production will remain. Russia has become a leading producer of grain and weapons, after the United States, the great USSR did not have such achievements, this is a serious fact.

        And in my opinion with Macron, then everything is as clear as God's day. What can he think strategically there? His business is just to voice in long form the wishes of those "who brought him to power", and these are people who do not want either Mitterrand, Strauss-Kan, or de Gaulle. The utilitarian task of .Mkaron is to “keep and not let go,” - to keep France by all means under the heels of the Brussels clerk and the Washington governor, to the glory of the world liquidocracy. Macron is just “anti-Marin Le Peng,” and no more, he went to the polls, hastily snatched from the gang of globalism agents around the Champs Elysees.

    This is true: the American market for Germany is almost closed - everything that Germany produces is also produced in the USA, at about the same prices and with the same quality. The American neocons, in order to somehow keep Germany and therefore all of Europe in check, came up with the so-called "transatlantic partnership" during the Obama era - that is, they tried to "quote" the production of certain products manufactured both in the USA and in Europe, so that move it between both markets. However, nothing came of this, as it turned out that it was “technically” very difficult to do because of different conditions and because Europe had ceased to believe any treaties with the USA, because the latter had stopped them comply or began to interpret them only to the side beneficial for themselves. The Americans tried to “lure” Germany with a “carrot and stick”, demanding additional contributions from Germany to NATO, and then said that it would be possible to “forgive” these contributions and give some more tax preferences to German companies trading in the USA if Germany will switch to American shale gas, and the price of this gas will be "acceptable." However, the Germans already understood what the United States was "reliable" partners and that the main task for the United States is to break the contracts between Germany and Gazprom, and as soon as this happens they will immediately raise the price of their gas and demand to pay for NATO, etc. But even, Despite this understanding, Germany is still very close to accepting the American proposal. In Germany, there is a very large lobby for those who advocate giving up the United States altogether and becoming their complete puppet, they say it is more profitable and more convenient and calmer .... But there is one "BUT" - this is .... The Chinese Silk Road " In Europe, they understand that if only China paves this "path" (through Russia or something else) and the entire economy of Europe comes, the European industry will simply die under the influx of cheap Chinese products (if you do not put protective duties, but then the Ambassador comes to the WTO), Russia But in general, on the drum to whom to sell their gas, if the bending industry of Europe stops buying Russian gas, then China’s developing industry will start buying it in increasing volumes .... And here you’ll think about what to do: about to preserve the workplace mentality and prevent the Chinese from paving the direct, cheap way to Europe for their cheap goods and not to quarrel in the powerful USA .... This is the dilemma for the Fritz .... wink

      This is true: the American market for Germany is almost closed - everything that Germany produces is also produced in the USA, at about the same prices and with the same quality.



      Yep ...


      "... According to the results of 2015, the United States became Germany’s most important trading partner, ahead of France for the first time in 40 years, Deutsche Welle reports.

      Russia took 13th place in this ranking. In 2015, trade between the Russian Federation and the Federal Republic of Germany amounted to 51,5 billion euros. At the same time, Germany imported more from Russia (29,8 billion euros) than exported to the Russian Federation (21,8 billion euros).

      According to the Federal Statistical Office (Destatis) of Germany, trade between the US and Germany in 2015 amounted to 173,2 billion euros .... "

      In the first half of the 2017 year, Germany delivered 55 billion worth of products to the United States. France in the United States supplied products for 53 billion dollars. Cool USA closed their market. Especially regarding the supply of industrial equipment and other high-tech products. For the pyrmer in 2017, an agreement was concluded in the amount of almost 50 billion dollars:

      Airbus Aircraft Corporation has agreed to supply aircraft to Indigo Partners 430; the transaction value, based on catalog prices, is 49,5 billion dollars, the aircraft building concern said on Twitter.

      This is the largest deal for a European company in its history.

      The agreement includes the supply of 273 A320neo aircraft and 157 A321neo airliners. The catalog price of A320neo is 108,4 million dollars, and A321neo is 127 million dollars.

      “Indigo Partners has been a major customer and buyer of Airbus narrow-body aircraft for many years. This order for 430 aircraft is impressive,” John Leahy, chief operating officer of Airbus Commercial Aircraft, said in a statement.

      Leahy also told reporters on the sidelines of the Dubai Aerospace Salon that the planes are for low-cost airlines from the United States, Chile, Mexico and Hungarian Wizz Air. According to Leah, the supply of aircraft will begin in the 2022 year.

      Airbus Group is one of the leaders in the aerospace industry, defense and related sectors, combines three key divisions - Airbus, Airbus Defense and Space and Airbus Helicopters. The concern was founded in 2000 by the merger of the German company Daimler-Benz Aerospace AG, the French Aerospatiale-Matra and the Spanish CASA, and until January 2014 was called EADS. The headquarters is in Toulouse.

      Indigo Partners LLC is an American private investment fund specializing in investments in air transport. The headquarters is located in Phoenix, Arizona.

    The decision to bring peacekeepers to the Donbass, not on the line of demarcation between Ukraine and the Donbass, namely to the Donbass, will actually mean recognition of the Russian Federation as a party to the conflict, an aggressor. Very bad. If Putin allows this, then he simply will not have any rating. None at all. And not only inside, but also outside the country. Therefore, it is likely that the Russian Federation will be drawn into the conflict - which is what the West is seeking by all means.
    If the EU manages to take Ukraine under its control, then what the hell is the joint venture for them? At least 2, but at least 1.
    China is under the control of transnational corporations. Without TNCs, China will bend instantly. Even what is not covered by TNCs, China can only sell the United States and Europe. We can’t buy such a quantity of any rubbish from them in any way, with all our desire. In something important (machines?) They are most likely licensed. Not even because it’s licensed because they won’t be able to copy, but in order to keep them under control.

      if the author hinted at the termination of the “Ukrainian economic miracle” under Kuchma, yes, gas prices influenced, but then there were the most expensive prices for the largest consumer (after Germany) with a minimum delivery leverage ..
      Russian gas for Ukraine was not the cheapest (for the price)

    The Kremlin, unlike you, thinks about the economic stability and development of the country, otherwise the Donbass will be covered, and not only the Donbass. Remember how quickly Russia collapsed in the 90-e years in the tar.

    Victor! I like reading your articles. Even if I do not agree with your conclusions. Ukraine in NATO (until you “put out the conflict in the Donbass” (dsk) cannot be dragged out), I agree with my colleague. The conflict in the Donbass has been predictable since 2004. Perhaps the words of one political scientist were true - "as long as Russian tanks meet with flowers there is the Russian border." Maybe there was another “politoluh” (the beginning of the “Maidan”): “It is necessary to give all the areas“ gravitating to Russia ”to them and leave“ true patriots ”from the Western regions. After the“ Muscovites ”learn all the value of life from us - they themselves will be asked "(close to the text). Somehow without the "Riflemen" they met a "Friendship Train". Someone had to "like to fight." I doubt that (“the Kremlin” and the locals), they received “hemorrhagic." Half of the arms would not have been taken into our hands if we hadn’t been leveled with the ground. With the "Natsiks" - on the "fists" would be sorted out. As they used to say, “We are not starting the war, we are ending”! Merry Christmas, Victor you personally! All "members of the forum"! We’ll be alive, don’t die, don’t die, so we will discuss everything!

    The great chessboard, as Comrade Brzezinski used to say, remains hopeful that the gdp and co will calculate the moves ahead and several options for the development of the situation of choice, the gdp doesn’t know what the west is going for and he won’t forgive him, but for the common people it’s left to support the guarantor with a word and in the foreseeable future, there is no matter what options the liberals offer in the Donbas, it all started for Russia there and ends, or pan or disappeared

    As for the Chinese turbines, the author, to put it mildly, got excited. All “Chinese technologies” grow out of European technologies, lured into “joint” production and projects, as well as from the banal stolen goods in the States and Europe. For a long time later, China can “use” these technologies and decorate them with “Chinese gardens,” but it is still not able to make any candy, for now. The main trend is the Chinese simplification of the received, cheaper products for competitive confrontation in the consumer market. The industry of the "West" got a firm blow through the skull, placing its production in China, but before that, Western financiers are completely violet. At the same time, if China creates something high-tech, it values ​​it, keeps it as the apple of an eye for itself, its beloved, and does not intend to distribute / share. In any case, in China you can scoop only yesterday / yesterday technologies. And with the desire of Russian managers to "optimize budgets" and the product itself of Chinese origin will be of slag quality, you do not need to go to a fortuneteller.
