The European Commission has accused the United States in unleashing trade wars

48
The US State Department said that Russia uses the "gas issue" as an instrument of pressure on Ukraine. The official representative of the US foreign ministry, Heather Nauert, said that Washington expects Russia to resume gas supplies to Ukraine "in the near future."


Against this background, the United States itself was accused of trying to exert economic pressure in circumvention of the rules and regulations of the World Trade Organization. She accused the United States of the European Commission.

EC Vice-President Jyrki Katainen said that the United States, by its actions in trade with the European Union, is provoking a real trade war. The reason for this statement by a European official was a significant increase in Washington's import duties on metals and alloys from Europe.

The European Commission has accused the United States in unleashing trade wars


It is about the introduction by the United States of new import duties in the amount of 25% for steel and 10% for aluminum. Trump said that such measures are related to the protection of the domestic American metal market.

The Vice President of the European Commission said that this step by the United States could lead to the opposite measures. According to Katainen, "and other countries can use the example of the United States to close their markets for import."

Katainen:
What will all this lead to? I suppose to trade wars. And these wars are easy to start and extremely difficult to stop. This is a blow to the global economy.

    What will all this lead to? I suppose to trade wars. And these wars are easy to start and extremely difficult to stop. This is a blow to the global economy.

    This is one of the goals of the concept of controlled chaos in the United States. Russia seeks mutually beneficial partnerships with everyone. China-buy up entire sectors of the economy. Go to any hypermarket, I'm not talking about bazaars and markets. The US is striving for global dominance, to bend everyone. Europe understands this, they began to move, only the leaders of the European Union countries prepare for themselves alternate UN airfields and other warm places after the end of their careers.
    The GDP made it clear that it’s dangerous to talk with Russia from a position of strength, he proposed negotiations on equal terms with mutual responsibility. The states understand this, only: the Fed distributes candy wrappers with portraits of presidents from the US Treasury in the USA and around the world and is a private structure. The military-industrial complex in the USA is in private hands. These crocodiles will never calm down. Kennedy tried to take away the function of the wrapper distributor from the Fed and where is Kennedy now? On the third day after his assassination by at least two snipers (Oswald doesn’t count, he’s a scapegoat), Kennedy’s successor immediately canceled Kennedy’s decree regarding limiting the function of the Fed. B. Baruch, who created the Fed with W. Wilson, met with Kennedy, but Kennedy was not inclined.
    It’s not the first year that the Amerzians have been accustoming the world to the idea of ​​the possibility of a local nuclear war, because those who are in the US at the helm, people who are dark and uneducated, are not aware of the consequences. Thirst for profit overshadows the mind.
    The GDP statement is a clear signal to everyone who touches us, that will not last long.
    Yesterday I looked at the “debates” of these clowns, oh, I'm sorry, I had in mind the presidential candidates and thought, does someone really seriously think that it’s so simple without the specialized education, competence, experience in the civil service at least at the regional level, these same cranks and can the media freak do it? fool
    I am not a supporter of the LDPR, but to their legislative initiative, if I could, I added my own:
    The President of the Russian Federation is the highest state official, the presidential candidate must meet additional requirements:
    -Service in the armed forces or special services, even if ordinary, because the duty of the President of the Russian Federation is to protect the interests of Russia;
    -Special higher legal and second economic education or procurement;
    -Specialty thesis as confirmation of competence in the field of macroeconomics, political science or optimization of public administration;
    -Academy of public administration;
    -Successful experience in public administration at the regional level;
    -Lack of vicious ties, incl. with the State Department and NGOs in the past;
    Trumpampam is a businessman, and how with foreign policy does the USA seek peace and mutually beneficial relations with partners? Prosroshenko is a businessman, how are neighbors doing?
    Enough with us gorlopanov and Krasnobaev, let them hang out away from Russia. angry

        Brother, don't be upset. I’ll venture to suggest that those young people who have replaced governors and other officials in regions and at the federal level in regions across the country, having gained experience in senior positions, will become real, trained and competent candidates for the President of the Russian Federation in 6 years. Almost all of them just meet the requirements that I proposed above. We do not choose the captain of the yard football team and not the chairman of the house committee. I about it. As for the eccentrics and the media freak from home-2 that joined them, I expressed my opinion. This is a laughing stock, a market, only slogans. Do you believe that at least one can handle it? Me not.
        If I were the host of the debate, I would ask each “candidate” a simple question: what has he done or is doing from his campaign promises at least around himself, where he lives. That's all.
        And with respect to Grudinin-Lugovoi, he’s absolutely right: a government official who has real estate or accounts abroad is vulnerable at any time, being on the hooks of the tzarls will become controlled by “sworn partners”. You don’t have to go far for examples: Gorbachev-video with raikin trips to diamond stores, plastic cards for 100 thousand bucks from President Yu. Korea Rodeu did their job. EBN - the same video, strangely winning the tender for the repair of the Kremlin Albanian swindler B. Pacioli-transferred money to terrorists in Kosovo. And how did the modest assistant of EBN take 5% of the shares of the famous Swiss jewelry company, really for his modest salary?
        And the tranche of 3 lard from the IMF, from which only 800 lyam got to Russia. EBN promised to investigate the camera of journalists, and how did you find the money? The mysterious death of a Lyon banker with his whole family in his own house ??? In the presence of security ??? Burned out in the bunker ???, Through the bank of an unlucky Frenchman, lards were supposed to come to Russia, but after Berezovsky’s visit, the investigation came to a standstill due to the banker's death. And Berezovsky himself threw a scarf or helped, or it’s not Berezovsky who was buried — the funeral participants look very cheerful. Something like this.

It is more important to respect yourself for an honest, professional, conscientious attitude to your business, that you didn’t lie, you didn’t steal, you didn’t take, you didn’t kill and you are not ashamed to look at yourself in the mirror.

    All the wealth of the West is built on trade wars, usury and robbery.
    But Gorbachev’s economists are blabbering about the failure of a planned economy and market impeccability, where there has never been fair competition in real life. A continuous war for resources and loans for pre-agreed goods.
    And then scoops with the naive belief that they would buy their goods for "the market is free." Fools

      Quite right. All developed countries went through these stages, but in order to prevent other countries from becoming rich, they prohibit these methods. And they impose methods that conserve backwardness and poverty - this is the so-called "Washington Consensus" - a free market, free movement of capital, privatization, etc.
