The West can "push" on Moscow with new sanctions

99
Russia and the United States the other day will hold talks on Ukraine. Reports about it "The Wall Street Journal". If the negotiations are unsuccessful, the West will increase the pressure on Moscow: write out new sanctions. It looks like “sanctions” is a favorite word in the vocabulary of US politicians.




Interviewed by correspondents "The Wall Street Journal" diplomats said that the key issue in scheduled meetings is to restart the peace process. If the parties do not come to an agreement in the coming months, Washington and its allies will increase pressure on Moscow through new sanctions.

In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, notes "InoTV", US officials said the Kremlin’s response to the announcement of the supply of US arms to Kiev is characterized as “restrained.” However, officials allow, it is this circumstance (about the supply weapons Ukraine) and helped “push” Moscow to return to negotiations.

"There is an opportunity to deal with Eastern Ukraine, if Moscow wants it," said one of the representatives of the American authorities. US officials believe that the Ukrainian initiative is a “test case,” the course of which will show whether Moscow really wants to take steps to improve relations with the West.

At the same time, the United States intends to put pressure on Moscow in order for the Kremlin to implement the arms control agreements. Another reason to put pressure is on Moscow’s help in making a political transition in Syria.

However, American and European diplomats doubt that Putin will make a deal (especially on the eve of elections in the Russian Federation). Yet, bilateral meetings will allow Americans to “scout the plans of the Russians and their desire to negotiate now or after a vote” [in March 2018].

Recall that in the foreign ministries of the leading states of the European Union (Germany and France), the question of easing sanctions against Russia is already openly discussed. This is, of course, not specifically about the level of the two countries, but about the whole of the EU, since the decision on sanctions is taken by all member countries. However, conversations have been going on for a long time, but there are no shifts and are not expected. The stumbling block is Kiev. The European Union is not going to give up its idea to support Ukraine. Nevertheless, the situation in Europe shows: Europeans do not want to "put pressure" on Moscow. But the Americans are doing exactly the opposite: for those "sanctions" is a favorite word.

        - We have already removed our pants! Sanctions would be worthless if our corrupt elite did not keep deposits over the hill. It is through these contributions that the West keeps Russia behind the Faberge! Why do you think we have such a strange reaction to the lawlessness of the IOC and PACE ???

          There, not only the top holds money, there all reserves lie. And the Central Bank also increases the withdrawal of funds to the west. Under the guise of concern about the fate of the Russians and their economic well-being. The fate of such investments in Libya, Iraq, Iran, and the same Kazakhstan (which has frozen a third of the national fund, which is also stored in the "reliable" west), does not teach anything in this country. Everyone spits in our face, they openly scoff at us, and we all smile, put up with it! Like God endured and ordered us. He didn’t tell us this, he told the Jews it. It is time to calm all these creatures and show them their true place. And it’s better to delete from history once and for all!

        Yes, it’s not just about leadership. Get the athletes out. Yesterday I had a real pleasure listening to how and who was removed from the games at the last moment. To say that I was pleased is to say nothing. Traitors always get what they deserve, ALWAYS! Not a single traitor ended his life in luxury and abundance; most ended it on the gallows. Our athletes betrayed, if not a country, then the people of Russia, agreeing to go to these shameful games on conditions of complete surrender. Well, now get the full program.
        And this has just begun to humiliate you, the greatest humiliation is yet to come.
        So, not only the top of us has rotted, the lower classes have also not gone far. Capitalism was originally a rotten system, because it turns a person from MAN into an animal.
        I look forward to a further circus with the adventure of a bunch of athletes out of nowhere under a white rag, I rub my hands, I don’t recognize popcorn, I’ll run for the seeds ... laughing

            The namesake, Rodchenkova is not waiting for an enviable fate. I do not want to vang, but with a probability of 90 percent I can assume that Rodchenkov will be used in this Olympiad, well, at least one more, and then they themselves will be beaten, of course blaming the Kremlin’s long arm. However, this nits there and the road.
            Well, if Berezovsky did not avoid such a fate, then this laying of Rodchenkov will certainly not benefit anyone.

            You know, I would agree with you, if not for one BUT. The fact is that the Russian national football team, in itself, is already a humiliation of Russia. So if they are not at the World Cup, there will be less shame for Russia. Not a single player in the world celebrates his victory, as our ***** I do not even know what to call, not a single censored word is suitable, they mark their defeat.
            Do we need SUCH football in general?

            P.S. I propose to the IOC, to bring the matter to its logical conclusion with the Russian national hockey team. After removing two key defenders, I propose that the IOC remove both goalkeepers and the main and the spare from the team ... Then everything will be logical and the result is logical. Respected Znarka, respected hockey players, right up to the moment when they did not agree to participate in this booth.

              It’s certainly good that they won’t let me in, only they say that they have a good spoon for dinner and don’t wave their fists after the fight. The fight had to be taken yesterday, and it was even better to lead the battle, the bells were long ago, back in Salt Lake City, when the Amersos themselves issued the second set of gold medals. Already then it was necessary to at least make claims, but then they did not say anything ..., but in vain.

      Dear, salat. I understand your irony. But really not funny. For 25 years, our Government has been implementing the recommendations of "our partners." As a result, our government, through its action or inaction, is involved in the destruction of our industry. While our industry was somehow "breathing", sanctions were not applied to us. As our industry, including mining, became completely dependent on Western friends, the "partners" understood "the fish swallowed the bait and sits firmly on the hook." Now we can dictate the conditions.
      P.S. I watched the transfer to RBC. One of the invited guests said sanctions against Russia are just beginning. Today, the level of sanctions against Russia can be estimated as 10% of the 100% possible. Still to come. We still bitterly regret that we spent so stupidly the money received from the “oil rain” that suddenly spilled onto Russia. Time since 2001 to 2012 it will be called the time of missed opportunities for the country (the oligarchs did not miss the opportunity, from 7 people their number increased to 97 people).

        Why such pessimism? During the sanctions period, the ruble was kept from falling, and inflation from a gallop. In the same 1998, without any sanctions and in the period of polite relations with the states, the liberal-oligarchic ruling elite of Russia with the hangers-on pulled the Russian people to a crack. In 2014, there were screams that sanctions would kill us, Putin absolutely did, so where is this end of the world? Our grandfathers and fathers after the Second World War not only held out, but also restored the country, without whining! And if one of the oligarchs has gotten enough of our problems, let them choke!

            I would say more precisely: due to the difference in the cost of production (production) of hydrocarbons within Russia and the cost of selling in foreign currencies, due to pressure on business through state corporations to reduce the usual percentage of profits that are common for Russian business, counter-sanctions, etc. . It looked very risky in 2014-2016, but the balance was kept, the country was saved from the worst and even managed to benefit from it by undergoing stress therapy. For us, this period is also not sweet, but not fatal

          Visibility of stability and stability in fact are two different things. A lot of things can drown us. Think about the pension fund, the level of our education and medicine — they will not teach us to read, and will not let us die from appendicitis. Everything else is as if for the money. God forbid to get seriously ill.

    the question is in the trade balance with China and Southeast Asia - there are EU and US losses.
    you need to put pressure on the weak.
    "they will clamp us down" I wrote in the fall of 16. "pressure" will continue to intensify, until the balance of payments of the "press countries" is evened out ... or their surrender to the claws of the new owners

If there had been Ukraine, they would have immediately found another reason - from the INF Treaty, Syria to Pid ... in, I apologize to the LGBT community (remember Sochi). Therefore, either on our knees or living as we ALWAYS lived before. As long as the Washington – London axis exists, sanctions are eternal.

      Under the Union, they lived under constant external pressure, and what successes, scientific breakthroughs, and socialism were built so that the envy of the whole West was a struggle of ideologies with an external demonstration. Half of the states of the world have created and pulled on themselves.
      External pressure mode is our standard life mode.
      And, they press the oligarchy, and force the authorities to "work" for their native country. And then they lit up the "buy-sell" and other financiers ...

    As Professor Preobrazhensky said - devastation in the head ... These sanctions against whom? Against the country that lived behind the Iron Curtain and defeated the European Union in WWII. It is the European Union, since then all of Europe worked for Germany. We will be self-sufficient. And finally, let's stop looking to the West.

    I think everyone understood the hint. But the authorities, neither in the oil, zero, nor after 2014, did anything for the country's independence. The ideology of the current rulers is simple: we will sell oil, we will buy everything we need ...

    Sanctions will not be lifted and pressure will increase - 100%.
    But here it is necessary to transfer our liberalists and liberoids from the government. To impose, so to speak, on them (liberals) sanctions of 10 years with confiscation. Here is the import substitution.
    And the fact that Medvedev is eyeing the shock absorbers, so these are springs for the covers of nano-smartphones ...

    If the parties do not come to an agreement in the coming months, Washington and its allies will increase pressure on Moscow through new sanctions.

    Those. for the USA, the meeting does not matter, the result is known in advance: either Russia makes concessions or sanctions. Because 90% of concessions will not be, then - sanctions. But now there is someone to send away.

    Yes, until their death, the Americans do not need Ukraine, they need to spread rot Russia. Kiev does not comply with the Minsk agreements, and instead of forcing Ukraine to implement them, the State Department begins to invent a new agreement and this will be endless, and therefore - only Minsk - will be fulfilled and we will look further and no compromises.

    Where is the USA and where is "Eastern Ukraine"? What did the Americans forget here?
    While we are humiliatingly knocking on the closed doors of the USA and the EU, while we suffer bullying of our youth in sports, science, culture, while our old people are deprived of their Victories, idols, while the able-bodied population of the country suffers losses from sanctions, from unstable oil, unsecured dollar bills, etc. Western "values", until then we will be afraid for our future and the future of our children.
    Therefore, no contact is needed with the Americans. Generally! "The subscriber’s device is turned off or is out of range of the network." I am sure that a month after hearing this message, they will either start hostilities against us, or Trump will come to Moscow as President of the United States. At least there will be clarity in all matters.

And they will tell us what a heavy heart they have to go to these hated USA / EU for work, to send their own children to God-free universities in Great Britain with tears, and their wives, instead of a wonderful vacation in Anapa, are forced to guard secret houses on the Cote d'Azur. ..

I do not want to vang, but with a probability of 90 percent I can assume that Rodchenkov will be used in this Olympiad, well, at least one more, and then they themselves will be beaten, of course blaming the Kremlin’s long arm. However, this nits there and the road.
    Well, if Berezovsky did not avoid such a fate, then this laying of Rodchenkov will certainly not benefit anyone.
