Washington has promised to continue the hard line against Russia

39
The US administration will continue its “tough” policy towards Moscow and will take various measures to protect against possible interference in future elections, reports RIA News statement by the representative of the White House, Sarah Sanders.




We will continue the hard line with respect to Russia, as we did in the first year (of the work of the Trump administration),
Sanders told reporters.

According to her, the White House "is considering a number of different actions to prevent" the intervention of Moscow in the upcoming American elections.

Sanders added that "President Trump is tougher towards Russia than his predecessor (Obama)."

Recall that in the US Congress there are independent investigations into the "Russian interference in the US presidential election," which Donald Trump won. In addition, a similar investigation is conducted by Special Prosecutor Robert Muller.

Moscow has repeatedly denied the allegations of interference with the American elections, the press secretary of the Russian president, Dmitry Peskov, called them "absolutely unfounded."

    The statement looks especially vivid against the backdrop of a ban on holding sports competitions in Russia.

          Take the money, they are at 0.8%,

          To begin with, the yield on US Treasuries is about 2,65% per year.
          The largest lender to the United States is China. Since January 2017, he has been holding about $ 1,246 trillion in US bills. In second place is Japan with its $ 1,122 trillion. A little further - Ireland ($ 295,8 billion) and the Cayman Islands ($ 265 billion). Russia with its $ 108,7 billion is only in 13th place.
          Can the United States or any other country, in the event of a sharp aggravation of relations, seize Russian-owned bonds?
          This is possible only in one case - if treasury bills purchased by the Central Bank of the Russian Federation will be stored in America. But such a practice is a very rare case. As a rule, governments of different countries use their own depositories to hold securities. Or rent them from other states. Serbia's reserve securities, for example, can be kept in China, and Chinese - in Singapore, etc. Information about where which state holds its budgetary savings was not disclosed.
          The Russian Central Bank invests not only in US bonds. Most investments are made in France (26,3%). The second place is occupied by the United States of America (21,6%), the third - by the securities of domestic companies (14,1%), and the fourth - by Germany’s treasury bills (12,3%).

            And what did you mean by that? Well, even if 2% income per year .. You think you can not find a more profitable investment in Russia. As an example, the whole world is sitting on American software (software), you probably have Windows installed .. now they tear 4 tons per year for official office programs. Moreover, we have the most powerful programmers in the world and this is a fact. So what prevents you from investing part of the money here? It will be 1000% per annum, at least, plus its own security .. And this is just one example ..

                It is not possible to make money if you do not take risks at all, and it’s another matter that the risk should be minimal. In the case of our investments, there is also a risk that they will be frozen. And the risk is pretty high. Money should work and work for our economy.

                    This is what annoys .. 2.8 mlr .. This is a very small amount, given the size of the investment, it’s simple, you need to work, responsibility again, but why? The government does not want to strain again.

        Starting July 1, the National Bank of Belarus withdraws the Russian ruble from the gold and foreign exchange reserves and completely switches to international standards

        The transition to international standards, according to the regulator’s statement, will help to improve the management of foreign exchange reserves, as well as the experience gained “in the course of participating in the World Bank’s Resource Advisory and Management Program, IMF recommendations and the practice of managing official reserve assets by central banks of other states.”

          That is the wording. Distortion is obvious. This text at one time was simultaneously carried out by ukro-resources and the US-sponsored pseudo-opposition Belarusian media.
          In Belarus, from 2004 to 2017, the calculation of the value of international reserve assets was carried out according to 2 methods - national (where the Russian ruble was taken into account) and international (where it, of course, was not). Now there is only one technique, as in the whole world. By the way, the Chinese yuan since 2016, the IMF has included in the basket of currencies used for calculation.

    La, la, poplar. The same thing from the Americans every day. They have already oversaturated us with their constant "hard lines", sanctions and everything else attached to this package. Introducing sanctions, they naively assumed that now the people would turn their backs on the president and demolish the hated power. But it turned out the opposite. Most of the people, in addition to indignation at American actions, are already beginning to express contempt and hatred of the United States.

    Doping, hackers, elections, Crimea - these are just unfounded propaganda pretexts to justify their actions. Such pretexts can be invented on the fly, because the USA itself is also involved in interference in the elections, or even demolish power, as in Kiev. The United States conduct military incursions around the world on completely far-fetched occasions - Iraq, Syria, partly Libya, Afghanistan. The United States conducts cyber operations around the world, for this they have about 1300 high-class so-called IT specialists on staff, and in fact first-class hackers and cybersecurity specialists. Moreover, the same state sits in Europe, Germany and Estonia. Unbridled propaganda through media like CNN, actually American Wochenschau. Trump has already tried on Adolf Aloizovich's tunic, speaking about citizens from black holes - Africans, Muslims, Russians. Surrounded by Trump, it’s all generals, the budget for the “reboot of the United States” is entirely on military orders. USA - the modern Fourth Reich.
