US media: Washington is very serious about imposing new anti-Russian sanctions

The US administration continues to develop additional sanctions against Russia, reports TASS Post by Bloomberg.

According to sources in the US administration, "the decision to impose sanctions should not be politicized, and therefore the discussions on this matter are being held behind closed doors."

New sanctions can be taken in respect of persons caught in the so-called "Kremlin list". The administration also believes that in the matter of new restrictions, the United States should come out in a united front with its European allies.

We work a lot (in this area), we take it very seriously, it is a matter of national security,
said a senior government source.

Recall that in late January, the US Treasury Department published an open version of the “Kremlin list”, in which almost all members of the Russian government, as well as businessmen with a fortune (according to the Treasury) $ 1 billion or more, were included. The USA then stressed that the list is not a sanction, but later restrictions may be imposed on these persons.

          February 19
          Turbo · Due to the aggravation of the situation around Ukraine, the United States has several times imposed sanctions on Russia and Russian citizens, experts comment. “Since 2014, there have been approximately 45 reports that sanctions will be introduced or those measures already in place be strengthened. ... Foreign companies began to include in the agreements with the Russian side the so-called “sanction clause”, according to which, if it suddenly opens up that the counterparty was under sanctions, the other side has the right to terminate the contract, ”says Alexander Bazykin. In February, Dmitry Pumpyansky, an American subsidiary of TMK, postponed an IPO on the New York Stock Exchange. Hide

          Sanctions (from the EU) were imposed on the largest Russian financial institutions, such as VTB, Sberbank, VEB. In particular, since the beginning of August, EU citizens have been prohibited from purchasing certain types of securities of these institutions. According to analysts, in practice this means only one thing - these Russian banks cease to have access to capital markets. ... Consider the aspect relating to the most serious, according to experts, countermeasures of the Russian authorities - the ban on the import of products from the EU. Many analysts believe that European agricultural producers suffered from the embargo very significantly. Deliveries to Russia for many of them were a guarantee of profitability, and for some businesses it was the main sales channel. Hide

      They all know how, even better than the Prosecutor General’s Office of Russia, now these nouveau riche people will rush around and bargain for freedom, everything that’s “earned by overwork” cannot be legalized anywhere, like you don’t spend a lot of money, it’s strict in the West. By the way, these are the only sanctions that I unconditionally support, it’s a pity the stolen from the Russian people that will not return to the country.

Personally, I am deeply disgusted to defend the thieves who robbed the country under the guise of patriotism, when they stole they didn’t think about the people.

      Putin commented on the proposal to introduce new sanctions against Russia. The initiator of anti-Russian measures this time was the United States Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.
      Vladimir Putin answered the question of journalists clearly and clearly.
      "Yes, sanctions are harmful to our economy, it’s stupid to deny. But it’s even more stupid to think that we are not adapting. At the moment, there is an active restructuring of the economy under the domestic market and building ties with our Asian partners. Remember my words. The time will come when the USA will regret his choice, this is not a threat, but a reminder. "

    I’m sure that honesty has long been ripe, without diplomacy, because diplomacy is the ability to hide one’s intentions, the explanation of the authorities with the people about our foreign policy. This is not indifferent to the people, people, not fat cats, suffer from sanctions. The reference to the fact that the pilot is not obliged to discuss his actions with passengers is incorrect, because soon passengers will choose a pilot. and if the pilot ignores the passengers, it is likely that instead of the pilot they will choose an eloquent cadet. No details needed. it is necessary that everyone understands that our leadership can and is capable of taking sanctions in the war.

    sanction decision should not be politicized
    This cannot be because it cannot be in essence. The imposition of any sanctions is already a political action - putting pressure on the country's economy to achieve its goal. I wonder how the Americans manage to decide on the imposition of sanctions without politicizing it? The poor started talking that they themselves were losing the meaning of what was happening.

"Hello comrade, Anarchist, are you feeling bad ?! Sanctions have strangled you ?! Take care of yourself and don’t think about it, we’ll turn off the Internet for a month!

      Power without criticism becomes, at best, loose, and may not become viable.

          Not criticism, not constructive. I just don’t believe the whole current system. I do not believe that elections can change anything. The grumbling of the old ... is shorter than the former in fact.
          When I see that criticism can change something, I will speak objectively, constructively.
          At the expense of banning what is unpleasant, at the old rake, there will be no benefit.
          Criticize in the case, there will be more benefit. We have the right to grumble, this is a bonus to age.

              And the previous system kicked me specifically. I myself advise everyone not to step on the rake, but I have fallen under the present, though a long time ago, in those dashing 90 years.
              So there is something to compare ... the secretary of the city party committee (not the first, the department of something there) could complicate life and a career \ ditch at a time. Later I was convinced that I can deprive the servicemen and the judges of everything!
              Well, in the past, I evaluate then and now according to my own understanding and years lived.
              Then it was bad, but more good, most importantly kinder, more human as it was!
              Now the bias towards the bad is bigger and about kindness to the person everything is much worse.
              Not to say that there is or will be unbearable, but I would prefer to transfer what is good now in those days, and not vice versa!
              That is my feeling. I do not impose an opinion on anyone, but if they understand, I will be glad.

    To say that sanctions in no way negatively affect our economy is a fallacy and self-deception. They influence, but not at all in the same way as the "sanctioners" expect from us. They hoped that we would follow the path of the USSR of the 80s or let go of inflation and our economy would drown in it, as in the 98th, and our “partners” counted on a lot. In fact, the steps taken by the Russian authorities to overcome the crisis can be called successful, but there are a number of “tar spoons” that entail fair outrage among the people. Russia is trying to ride on the rails of capitalism with one foot, and the second on the rails of socialism. It is good to continue this ambivalent situation with the risk of not only tearing your pants, but also “stretching”, you can earn time to lose masks and embark on the path of socialism. The West expected from our business that prices and tariffs would be inflated, but broke off. Of course, there were attempts, but through state-owned companies and controlled oligarchs, the government besieged the market, starting to cut purchase prices from last year - a smart move, you can’t say anything. But in the end, the pressure ends not only with a reduction in the revenues and losses of contractors and subchickens, but also with the ruin of many of them, as well as of the services that lived on their "fat" incomes until 2014. It is necessary to measure the reasonableness of pressure and accompany this with the creation of real jobs for the redundant staff of a bankrupt business so that they can wait out this difficult period. Without this, the economy works for us, but everything is somehow crooked and oblique, and we grow the “fifth column” ourselves. Since we are more inclined towards socialist development, then we need to move on to state regulation, with the exception of a certain sector of free enterprise, which, if possible, can be supported.
    PS: I immediately say to the pro-communist comrades that our former political elites had the opportunity to cope with similar difficulties in the 80s and 90s, but they became interested only in the selfish interest for which they merged both the Union and its legacy. What is sad - I did not notice much change in this environment - all the same desire to live according to the laws of the chicken coop: to sit higher, peck at our neighbor and us ... at the bottom. I don’t see any ideological among them, only feigned ones - apparently, by criteria, they don’t crawl into the party ranks ...

      Oh, I wrote a lot, in principle it’s true, but in short - What kind of bastards are they, they almost ruined such a country.
      Today, we have a big bias hybrid and it goes further and further. The old generation will leave, and the new one will get used to living under capitalism. I do not believe that the fat belly will give everything and go to the popular, working masses. The authorities will support them, because that's why it is clear.
      What kind of capitalist future awaits us, I won’t guess, but consider all countries to live like this, in principle, this is also possible. We will probably have to leave the last illusions, not live in the past, but build life in a new way.
      Otherwise, only a radical option as in October 1917. Someone wants this, and most importantly someone can do it?

        Greetings! hi
        A little boiled up - let the steam down. Unfortunately, maybe fortunately with us historically everything depends more on the leader. It is a pity that far from always strong leaders leave strong successors. I try to look at the past only as a lesson from history. We must look for new options, taking into account old mistakes. I very much hope that Chinese socialism will also become a definite example, so that Russia does not slip into capitalism.
        We will believe in the best. Life without faith is disgusting.
