US congressmen intend to extend the ban on Pentagon’s cooperation with Rosoboronexport, reports RIA News.


US Congress to extend the ban on cooperation with Rosoboronexport


The draft US budget for 2018 fiscal year states that budget funds "cannot be used to enter into contracts, memorandums of understanding or cooperation agreements, as well as grants, loans or guarantees for loans to Rosoboronexport and its divisions."

As conditions for easing the ban, “the cessation of Russian deliveries of lethal weapons Syria "as well as the" withdrawal of Russian troops from the Crimea. "

A similar prohibition was contained in the budget laws in previous years.

Recall, the US budget for the 2018 fiscal year implies an increase in military spending by $ 80 billion. The draft document has already been agreed by Republicans and Democrats. The fiscal 2018 year ends on September 30. For a long time, the United States lived on temporary short-term budgets due to differences in congressional parties.

The budget must be adopted by both houses until Friday, then it will be passed on to Donald Trump for approval.

        why am I surprised .. are they Mi17 helicopters for Afghanistan through whom they delivered? then the Americans could get around the sanctions .. so it's all a linden ... we’ll live without their grants and loans, and they are a moot point without our helicopters.

    "The cessation of Russian deliveries of lethal weapons to Syria" as well as the "withdrawal of Russian troops from the Crimea."
    Insolence and cynicism rolls over. It remains only to put forward the condition of the sea base in Sevastopol to transfer to the Americans according to the statement and with the ships.

    The conditions for easing the ban include "the cessation of Russian deliveries of lethal weapons to Syria" as well as "the withdrawal of Russian troops from the Crimea."
    Initially impossible conditions do not imply dialogue. And any “lifting” of sanctions will almost immediately entail the imposition of new ones - they will always find a reason, and if necessary, they will organize it. The US goal is to return us to ruin, our goal is to try to weaken the hegemon in different fields and to ensure our own development under pressure. In general, this is a long time. But from my point of view, the United States makes a long-lasting strategic mistake - the course towards our isolation and denigrating us in the eyes of the world, and ultimately turning us into something like S. Korea is meaningless in the sense that it is impossible with our poison. weapons + resources + cultural code. And the USA is no longer the only center of power in the world ... And this shortsightedness and silly straightforwardness in politics is a direct consequence of the loss of an equal opponent by the Americans at a certain stage and is very similar to the process of decaying empires ..

    Well, what about the ISS, there is clearly everything in uniform. How are they friends there? Everyone understands the confrontation of politicians fucking.
    Sell ​​titanium, Nuclear power plants under Yeltsin-is it normal? Engines? There seems to be no sanction. Plus there is still all sorts of different saltpeter and stuff .. copy King Solomon from Siberia. And cargo tankers broadcast everything successfully.
    And in return for the iPhone Medvedev? and some members of the government for old age.

    To put forward counter conditions for them: We will begin to consider American “conditions” only after the withdrawal of all American troops from Alaska and the cessation of all military supplies to Israel!
