US Department of State: We call on foreign countries to refuse to buy weapons from Russia

74
The spokesman for the US Department of State, Heather Nauert, during a briefing, said that Washington had turned to foreign partners about the need to abandon deals in the military-technical sphere with the Russian Federation. First of all, we are talking about the fact that the United States is “discouraging” third countries from purchasing weapons and military equipment from Russia.


If you believe Nauert, then to date, "some countries" have already abandoned transactions in the military-technical industry in the amount of about 3 billion dollars. It was noted that this is due to the previously imposed sanctions against a number of Russian defense companies.

US Department of State: We call on foreign countries to refuse to buy weapons from Russia


Heather Nauert:
Our embassies abroad received directives from the State Department on the need to dissuade the government of the country from cooperation with Russia in the defense industry. Today we are satisfied with the results.


These statements prove that the US uses its sanctions as an element of unfair competition, including for this kind of competition in the international arms export market, where Russia holds a strong second place. Earlier, the Russian defense industry shared information that the export order portfolio is about 47 billion dollars for several years to come.

    Here it is an economic war. At the same time, the country's leadership is investing in the economy of the main adversary.

      Plaster is removed, the client leaves. What to do?!!!!

      The main thing is not to panic!

      And do not succumb to provocations!

      In particular, false patriots and false Russians.

          What are the criteria for evaluating patriotism?

          Probably for such:
          Patriot is not the same
          Who does not lie, does not steal, does not drink
          Just with all my heart for the people
          Patriot, patriot

          Since people steal and drink
          That steals and drinks the patriot
          How can you betray your people
          Patriot, patriot?

          If a jamb happened somewhere
          The enemy is solely to blame
          Expects sabotage from the "State Department" (US Department of State - Editor's Note)
          Patriot, patriot, patriot

          That he himself didn’t hammer a nail somewhere (he scored)
          He forgot about it immediately (he forgot)
          He doesn’t sweep rubbish from the hut
          Patriot, patriot

          Natural as beets in borsch
          He hates gay people
          But, at the same time, he sings with a tear
          Songs with Russian pop

          Here it’s like: if gay, but for us
          He’s not quite ...
          He sings well for Russia!
          Says patriot, patriot

          He rides an old Moscow
          On the broken-up in the trash "beemve" (brand of German cars BMW - approx. Editor)
          But you find yourself in a traffic jam behind him
          And you read on the glass "To Berlin!"

          And the whole family goes to the cinema (he goes)
          On ... a film patriot (patriot)
          And popcorn hates but eats
          Forgotten patriot
          ...
          Accident "Patriot"

      Calm down ... And look at everything wider ... Russia (the Central Bank, whose 80% of the profits go directly to the budget) invests in US government bonds and makes money on it !!! So, 106 billion in US government bonds now bring about 2,3-2,4% per annum, that is, the United States annually pays Russia $ 2,5 billion of coupons alone, which is enough for example for 1000 T-90 tanks a YEAR !!!
      In addition, an increase in investments in US bonds (as in other countries) occurs automatically, since the gold reserves of Russia are constantly replenished, with one gold per 200 tons per year, investments in bonds of foreign countries (but not all, but only reliable EU countries, are proportionally growing, USA)...
      In general, we need stocks in dollars, simply because for example we buy the same equipment for our enterprises, including the military-industrial complex, for currency !!!

      The United States must be destroyed, at least in the form it currently exists, at least for the support of the terrorists, for which we lack the courage to blame them. And since it’s already in any way that we are being sanctioned, it is necessary to use the hackers to influence the United States more actively and plunge the local political processes into chaos.

          Is this a little trickle of freebies from weapons? Yes, what are you ??? If in the state defense order it goes to the left a lot, and in general it’s a Klondike in export. Everything can be scrolled in different ways. And how much I underpay for workers. Moreover, the person who forms a military-industrial complex comes from the tax component, but not from the enterprises ’own funds. This is an incentive for design, but within reasonable limits. For our cave capitalism, nevertheless, the main goal is a personal naive top !!! And not otherwise.

    Here it is the face of the "standard" of democracy. US political power has always been and is in the hands of oligarchic clans, including those related to the production of weapons. The United States is conducting an “sanctioned” struggle precisely with those areas where we are in real competition with these clans. In the absence of the US holding back force, which was the USSR, this hotbed of criminal capitalism came out of its shores and began to wreak havoc around the world, especially where Russia (the Union) provided assistance in developing the economy, culture and education. Anglo-Saxon capitalism is now openly acting like evil spirits.

    The purpose of the latest sanctions was announced right at the time of introduction.
    Their main task is to ensure the supply of American weapons in the world by non-competitive means. Everything else is all fuss and decay.
    But I see no reason to worry. C-400 fly like hot cakes along with T-90, Sunflowers and other complexes. In addition, after all, we still don’t know everything, and at the exit there are many units and structures capable of leveling any amount of adversary with any amount of land.
    Onet was late in general. Before the Syrian events, or better, a decade ago, something else would have happened. Now it’s impossible. Moreover, payments can now be made not only through bucks and euros, but also through the yuan. The sanctions sector has narrowed sharply. Let the snot and drool wipe away.

      Well, about the yuan, you are careful. The Chinese are actively buying land around Lake Baikal, somewhere around 20% already ride their tourists with comments: While Russians still live on these shores, but in general it is Chinese land.

    What has changed? That in Soviet times, that in the 90s, we always discouraged, buy our weapons and buy your own. And so it will be in the 20s and 30s and 100s, we have always been enemies of the Anglo-Saxons, we will always remain them.

    I am not ready to gloat over and without reason. But: I quote the article "Ethese statements (State Department MK) prove the fact that the US is using its sanctions as an element of unfair competition ". Who would doubt it. It is time for our authorities to stop exposing what everyone has long known. After all, the elections are on the nose, and the position of the cat Leopold, they say, is spreading rot, but we are smarter than many, and I, among others, are tired and dislike, it is time to explain our intentions to the people, and not in the form of general slogans.

      If the pilot was accountable to the passengers for each of his actions ... They would fly away nearby .. And what would the bus driver answer you? It’s scary to even think ... smile

        The pilot analogy does not count, because passengers in Russia will choose a pilot. And if the pilot is not clear, then the chance is great that the passengers will choose some eloquent cadet. I have a shameful fact in my biography, I hope the only one. Once yielding to random advice, he voted for Sobchak in the Lenin Executive Committee.
