Volker called the conditions for easing anti-Russian sanctions

39
Mitigation of Western sanctions against the Russian Federation will be possible if Moscow contributes to achieving peace in the Donbass, reports RIA News Statement by State Department Special Representative for Ukraine Kurt Volker.




At the same time, Volker noted that “the easing of restrictive measures would be insignificant.” But even this, in his words, “will help the relations of Moscow and Washington, by demonstrating their ability to negotiate.”

However, at present there is no progress in achieving peace in the east of Ukraine, including "due to the diverging positions of the parties on the issue of introducing a UN peacekeeping force," the special representative complained.

Volker also questioned the possibility of the invasion of Russian troops in Ukraine.

Ukraine is a much more stable country than it might seem
he noticed.

In addition, the diplomat said that America would not allow Russia to "join the new territories of Ukraine."

If you would lift the sanctions, repent of what you did, pay Russia a hundred billion for the inconvenience, then of course. wassat

          Walker called the conditions for weakening anti-Russian sanctions
          You can immediately discard and not read about weakening anti-Russian sanctions, because this is just Washington’s “carrot” suspended by it at a distance from the “face” of the so-called Russian “donkeys”, if people still naive in Russia are still there.
          But what Washington and the collective West of Russia want to read is possible and necessary. Firstly, in order to make sure that the disease of the "exclusivity" of the USA and Co. is still ongoing and, moreover, is gaining momentum. And secondly, so that the Russians and the Russian Federation do not miss the moment when they should be immediately "isolated" from society, so that they do not cause another global disaster in the form of TMV.

      Why in 45?

      Someone took Prussia (Odessa) - stands at Berlin (Kiev)? Or maybe ukrovermaht stands near Leningrad (Lugansk) and without binoculars watching Moscow (Donetsk)?

      Colleague, Walker is not the level of "Hitler" - this is laying, negotiator.
      The message of the article is incomprehensible.
      We will now discuss the threat of sanctions from all the stupid merinovskih liquidators?

            Hekate (dr. Greek Ἑκάτη) - the ancient Greek goddess of moonlight, the underworld, all mysterious, magic and witchcraft, in ancient Greek mythology, Hekate was not a negative character. Hekate grants wisdom in public gatherings, happiness in war, rich prey on the hunt, etc. .d. As the goddess of the underworld, she was also considered the goddess of everything mysterious.
            The Statue of Liberty has the face of either a French model or Isabella Boyer or the wife of Isaac Singer, the creator and entrepreneur in the field of sewing machines. (Bartholdi did not take Hecate)
            Between them, similarities are not enough for specialists.

            Walker bends the American line, playing long. The West knows how.

          I wonder what they got that the Americans want to get out of this (what kind of this?) Situation in Ukraine and why did they suddenly get tired of it. They didn’t invest billions for many years in order to leave Ukraine at the first difficulties. On the contrary, the emergence of the Walker-Surkov format, the actual exclusion of Europe from the negotiation process, while increasing pressure on Russia, suggests that the United States has taken on the solution to the Donbass problem. Ukraine is slowly but surely moving westward, reforms are underway, including the reform of the army, and Western standards and regulations are being introduced. Naturally, this process is not one year, not even 5 years, and the results will not be visible immediately. You can certainly gnaw over the Armed Forces of Ukraine, but it is stupid to deny the obvious strengthening, saturating it with weapons, including modernized ones, this is far from the scum that was in 2013. They adopted the law on languages, again, the results will not be soon, but they will be mandatory, now TV and the media are dominated by Ukrainian, which several years ago did not exist, Russian is being squeezed out of all areas, first of all, it is aimed at the younger generation, and this is the future country. The biggest problem for the West in Ukraine is the slowdown in reform, the resistance of the oligarchs and the corrupt political class of Ukraine, the worsening economic situation of the population and, accordingly, the increasing dissatisfaction and disappointment of Ukrainians.

      They are funny. They constantly talk about the conditions under which they are ready to lift the sanctions, and Russia, under the sanctions, does not make a single proposal to cancel them. As they say, whoever hurts, he says that.

    America will not allow Russia to "annex new territories of Ukraine."

    If people in any territories want to join Russia or create, together with Russia, for example, a new Soviet Union, then who will ask this America?

      This is not a “carrot and stick policy”, this is a “sucker divorce” policy. You do what we say we, we then we'll see if we can do something good for you, or maybe we won’t do it. "Exceptional," damn it. Therefore, you can’t follow their lead, because it immediately puts you in a subordinate position.

    Walker noted that "mitigation of restrictive measures will be negligible." Then there is nothing to bazaar about. In other words, the game is not worth the candle. So, the guy moved his brains.

    America will not allow Russia
    If necessary, Russia will not ask permission from the United States. As for the Crimea, the Americans did not ask permission, and they are saddened by powerlessness and resentment.
    “Mitigation of restrictive measures will be negligible”
    You (Russia) will make concessions, and we (USA) will see if it is worth giving thanks.

    This Walker is either deaf or type. Lavrov has long and clearly said that we will not conduct any negotiations to ease sanctions. And this American misunderstanding began to bargain again and set conditions.

    Volker called the conditions for easing anti-Russian sanctions

    Russia in general is a little worrying fact. yes
    They themselves entered, now they themselves set some conditions for cancellation. Yes, even as you please, but Russia will not ask for their cancellation. And to hope that after some retaliatory steps of Russia someone will express a desire to lift the sanctions? In Russia there are very few of them, and all of them are in the “fifth column”. yes
    Moreover, someone spoke out that sanctions against Russia were imposed for the "capture" of Crimea. Russia will not give up Crimea, which means sanctions forever, so why do any “body movements” be done to lift them?
    And do not beg, we will not yield. yes laughing

    Ukraine is a much more stable country than it might seem

    If this verbiage means that Ukraine is already under the United States, then yes - the situation is stable - there is nowhere to fall below ...
    And the sanctions ... where are they? Rat race. They are threatening everything with their bare ass. They even threaten to disconnect them from the “swift” - which is already the height of their idiocy.

    As I understand it, they (America), in this case, need to save face, because as it is, there are sanctions, but there is no result, so they are trying to give the appearance that everything is in work, everything is working, and the Russian Federation is bending ... supposedly they render us a service by mitigating their sanctions.

    One gets the impression that this and that (and, in general, this is a whole) must be proved that if "the Russians do not surrender, they are destroyed," they are deprived of the flag, anthem, and they will be deprived of their own country and territory, if we are not satisfied with the role of the clerk personnel of oil and gas fields, test tube cleaners and programmer slaves, biomaterial, and God knows what, invented in the bowels of the perverted European-American mind. In 1991, when we were deprived of food, many spat on their country, the USSR, and were left without it. Well, if in the suburbs. And if not? If not, then in every such place in the United States there was a wolf, from which do not expect mercy, because it is a beast. We are trusting people, this trash takes advantage of this.
    Elections on the nose. Over the next 6 of the following years, they will either work for us, or, spitting on this whole bunch of loafers and parasites, whose place is in the Gulag or behind a taxi steering wheel in Paris, we will again sleep peacefully and raise our children and grandchildren.
