How does the government respond to sanctions? Work in your own country!

81
Less than five years after the “Crimean aggravation” of Russia's relations with the West, the sanctions against us began to be really targeted. The new list included people and companies that were once called untouchable. But this is in Russia, I would very much like to sign up for American and European lists of untouchables, but they don’t take them. Until now, they did not touch those, without whom, as it seemed, Europe and America could not live.




Now they are touched because the so-called list of special national structures and citizens (Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons, SDN) this time also included Gazprom CEO Alexei Miller and VTB Chairman of the Board Andrei Kostin, and Renova’s owner Viktor Vekselberg and actual Host UC Rusal Oleg Deripaska. Behind them are the chairman of the board of Gazprombank Andrei Akimov, the general director of Surgutneftegaz, Vladimir Bogdanov, and also the senator-businessman Suleiman Kerimov. Many regarded the appearance of Central Bank deputy chairman Alexander Torshin in the list, which, incidentally, may be due to his previous political activities as deputy chairman of the Federation Council, as a very disturbing call.

In addition to them, the names of high-ranking officials were expectedly included in the list: here Interior Minister Vladimir Kolokoltsev, Director of the Russian Guard Viktor Zolotov, and Head of the Department of Internal Policy of the Presidential Administration Oleg Govorun and former head of the FSB Nikolai Patrushev the presidential bodyguard, and now the governor of the Tula region Alexey Dyumin. In total, the Americans decided to write to their sanctions konduit twenty-four more Russian citizens and fifteen companies associated with them.

Among the eight companies, including En + and UC Rusal, are Oleg Deripaska, at least three, not including Rosoboronexport, Igor Rothenberg, and Renova Group of Companies behind Roman Vekselberg. At the same time, the Americans still couldn’t refuse “selectivity”, leaving behind Gazprom itself and the same VTB.

The most painful, according to most experts, can be a blow to the aluminum industry, and it will affect not only Russia, but also all those who continue to buy volatile metal from us, and not only in the form of raw materials. And among these are numerous European companies that are capable of actually very actively lobbying for opposition to American sanctions. However, in the end, everything can eventually result in a trivial increase in costs for Oleg Deripaska’s structures, for which the treasury will have to pay, and in the end, for ordinary Russians. And they, as usual, are no strangers.

No, all sorts of personalities in the sanctions lists were abundant before, but there were lists of purely “politicized” ones, which are unlikely to really affect the very essence of our entire system of government. At the same time, in the spring of 2014, it was not “personal”, but “sectoral” sanctions directed against the financial sector that caused a real panic in the ranks of the business elite. However, despite the heavy losses in the TOP-lists of banks, Russia managed to wrap financial sanctions quite cleverly in their favor. Even a nearly two-fold fall in the ruble exchange rate in the fall of 2014 did not prevent the Central Bank today from reducing inflation to a level of stabilization — below 4 percent.

Yes, it cost the majority of the population quite dearly: real incomes of Russians fell by almost a quarter, but in conditions when the economic decline changed, albeit small, but by growth, income growth must recover quickly enough. Of course, provided that Russia is able to cope with the new portion of Western sanctions. For our executive authorities, the preparation of countermeasures and all sorts of anti-crisis scenarios has become a kind of sport in general. At the same time, it cannot be excluded that those characters and structures that were on the last sanction list could, and in general should have expected, something like that. It’s not for nothing that Professor Yuli Nisnevich immediately noted that “everyone was waiting for these sanctions and that this was only the beginning of the process”. So you waited! And that means they could, and should have prepared for this in advance, not counting on the fact that everything will resolve itself somehow.

Of course, binding, more precisely, the dependence of the Russian economy on the world, and hence on the American, is much stronger than the American from ours. But at the same time, the dependence of the European economy, and very tangible, on the Russian one, is taking place, and in the foreseeable future it cannot noticeably decrease by definition. Based on this, Russia will now have to act. We cannot fail to take advantage of the facts that are available simultaneously with the introduction of new sanctions. We are talking about the trade war between the Americans and China, and also about the fact that China not so long ago made the decision to switch over to calculations in yuan in a large part of its trade (read - purchases) in oil. At a time when the United States is actually pushing many of its potential partners to search for detour business routes, they thereby only stimulate the process of reducing their own dominance in world trade. In this case, is it worth proving at all that Russia simply needs to follow the path when the United States itself will, even partially and indirectly, pay for the sanctions imposed by them.

Well, the Russian public, who actually realized a long time ago, that the country's leadership in many respects perceives the oligarchs in power as a certain reality, of course, I would like to know what it is to fear. And it is better to learn this from the lips of the "victims" themselves. In the meantime, gentlemen Deripaska and Vekselberg remain silent, obviously trying to maintain the appearance that nothing terrible has happened, but Mr. Kostin is smiling at the camera at all nicely, repeating, like a spell: "We will work."

Recall that once, at the height of the 2008-2009 crisis, the current "victims" were on a completely different list - the list of recipients of anti-crisis billions, for the return of which no one even asked them. Few people have doubts that even now the Kremlin "will not abandon its own." Moreover, now the possibilities for all sorts of asymmetrical answers have become not less, but rather more. We will not repeat what Maria Zakharova, Deputy Head of the Russian Foreign Ministry, has already announced. Let's try to call something of our own: “a turn to the East” and “atomic romance” with Turkey, active trading with her, and along with Iran about what to do with Syria and how to restore it later. But there is also a vast Russia itself, where, besides the world football championship and the Crimean bridge, there is a lot of work!

Interestingly, Iran in the context of sanctions has already been remembered by the speaker of the lower chamber of the Russian Federal Assembly, who arrived there on a visit today, who believes that this is just one more attempt to contain the development of Russia. And even political scientist Dmitry Orlov, famous for his extraordinarily liberal views, did not by any chance react to new sanctions lists with a hint of irony:

“Yes, there are certain limitations that were before, mainly related to borrowing terms in Western financial markets, which makes it necessary to create new schemes to overcome these difficulties. Russian banks and companies have mastered these schemes. I do not see significant risks. ”


The irony here seems to be precisely in the last sentence, since the structures of Deripaska have already managed to lose billions from the sanctions. Perhaps a lot of this will be able to return later, but, as the stockbrokers say, it’s not the quotes that are important, but the trends. In the meantime, they, alas, are not in our favor.

How does the government respond to sanctions? Work in your own country!

              From the beginning of the zero to 2017, 50 thousand enterprises of various technological processing complexity were closed in the Russian Federation.
              Yes Long live the policy of market reforms to "integrate into all the respiratory tract" of the population!
              The authorities continued to defeat the country through the “entry not at the door, but at the window” into agreements such as the Kyoto Protocol (Russia and Ukraine did not sign, but pledged to maintain average annual emissions in 2008-2012 at the level of 1990. Developing countries, including China and India, they didn’t take any obligations.) Are we not a developing “democracy”, why didn’t Putin refuse? request
              2012, the Russian Federation "entered the WTO, which finally finished off what remained in industry and agriculture, including the seed fund.
              In 2015, the Russian Federation, with a calm soul, “waved” the Paris climate agreement, since harmful emissions were already reduced by the collapse of its own industrial base.
              Peremoga! Democracy! Eurointegration from Lisbon to Vladivostok! And so in all directions without exception.
              These “heroes from the reforms” were so eager to explore new horizons that they did not notice how they defeated their own territory in a European breakthrough. Or maybe they noticed, but the defeat was a fee for admission to the European lobby.
              Now they have kicked out of the Euroblock for obstinacy. Who now shove the liberals into pushing Russia to China, China?

                    Yes, according to the documents, the enterprise was closed, but in fact it just changed the sign ....
                    And there are many, they just avoid taxes every three years.

                  I forgot it for sure, thanks for reminding me.
                  On the example of one ship-repair plant: instead of a closed joint-stock company, in the signboard they changed to PJSC and instead of carrying out the main activity, turned into a transshipment point of grain. Guess why? I’ll tell you - it’s more profitable, and there is less “hemorrhoids” with people and equipment, certification, again, cost optimization. Only now the ships began to sink more often, but nothing. After all, the state is not responsible for the private owner with its market laws, right? Is this how you will “take into account” how you simply changed the sign or how you lost your specialization class?
                  If there are more transshipment points for the export of raw materials for export, but there are fewer shipbuilding and ship repair plants, does this reassure you? Is the economy pre, or not pre?

      This is a trade war - it is no coincidence that the heads of energy and metallurgical companies were included in the sanctions lists. Trump does what he promised the Americans - boosts the economy while strangling competitors with sanctions. I have an Internet-familiar Russian-speaking long-range truck, so he writes that with the advent of the work trump, his number of cargoes for metallurgists and power engineers increased many times, there were many flights to Alaska - so draw conclusions and there is no need to panic

      What does it mean to “shake”? And what does sanction have to do with the price of oil? You can’t summarize the losses from sanctions with the losses from falling oil prices! Then they would consider oil prices at 98 prices - in December 1998 it generally fell below $ 10 per barrel! After all, 120 dollars per barrel is also an absurd price, you can’t focus on it, it was generally a couple of months - but they consider the losses from it. Then we would at the same time consider Russia’s losses from the export of capital — to the heap, so to speak! bully In reality, the losses from the sanctions of both Russia and the Western countries are approximately the same - about 40-50 billion euros. hi

    All this looks like an agreement to destabilize the situation in the country, to prevent the president from taking office and to hold the World Cup-18. But the most important thing is to leave everything in the government as it is. For this, an attack with sanctions and more. We can say, "Swamp 2.0" on a global scale. Instead of “hamsters”, rats, rats, ferrets, skunks, chameleons, animals in one word.

      You do not pay the bills of the oligarchs, but this is the price of friendship with the West. If you want to be friends with the West, live according to its economic model, please pay the rent to Western countries. It doesn’t matter how they personally robbed you, whether they depreciated the national currency, carried out frauds with shares of large companies, or simply stole the hands of our crooks traitors. The mechanism of this action is not important, the result is important. Money from our pocket with you invariably migrates to the accounts of Western banks, and the tool that produced this action is given as a reward to smell the “newcomer”, hung on a tie or a dog leash. When you people understand that it is not local bankers or authorities that are robbing you, that Western civilization is robbing you, but those for whom you are evil, are just an expendable tool of this Western world. It is time to change the entire economic system in the country, to abandon the Western model of the economy. The West will not let us live richly, as we have robbed and will continue to rob.

    it’s a financial war, and we have to fight, physically we’re fighting well, economically ...., leaves much to be desired, the legacy of the late communists and thieving liberals, we need not speculation, we need investments in the country, but it’s doubtful, the country's leadership has never considered the country as an investment project, neither before the revolution nor after. Convulsive attempts by individuals like Peter the Great or the Communists were partially successful, but we won the battle, but lost the war, it’s a pity if this time it ends sadly ...., eternal rake

    “The Central Bank didn’t prevent inflation today from actually falling to a level of stabilization - below 4 percent.” Seriously, what?! “Does the author” sometimes pay attention to prices, or does he simply quote?

      So no one argues that these are lower than 4 percent - something real. "Declarative", "poster" declaration of stabilization. But it’s still better than in 90 when no wages keep up with prices

      You do not pay the bills of the oligarchs, but this is the price of friendship with the West. If you want to be friends with the West, live according to its economic model, please pay the rent to Western countries. It doesn’t matter how they personally robbed you, whether they depreciated the national currency, carried out frauds with shares of large companies, or simply stole the hands of our crooks traitors. The mechanism of this action is not important, the result is important. Money from our pocket with you invariably migrates to the accounts of Western banks, and the tool that produced this action is given as a reward to smell the “newcomer”, hung on a tie or a dog leash. When you people understand that it’s not local bankers or authorities that are robbing you, Western civilization is robbing you, and those for whom you hold evil are just an expendable tool of this Western world. It is time to change the entire economic system in the country, to abandon the Western model of the economy. The West will not let us live richly, as we have robbed and will continue to rob.
      Strange! First, say that those with the help of whom the traitors and puppets of the West withdraw money

    Churchill's Fulton Speech and Stalin's Opinion about It, Expressed in an Interview with the Pravda Newspaper (1946)
    1. "Question. Can it be considered that Mr. Churchill's speech is detrimental to the cause of peace and security?

    Answer. Of course, yes. In fact, Mr. Churchill now stands in the position of the arsonists of the war. And Mr. Churchill is not alone here - he has friends not only in England, but also in the United States of America.

    It should be noted that Mr. Churchill and his friends are strikingly reminiscent in this respect of Hitler and his friends. Hitler began the cause of unleashing war by proclaiming racial theory, declaring that only people who speak German represent a full-fledged nation. Mr. Churchill begins the process of unleashing war, too, with racial theory, arguing that only English-speaking nations are full-fledged nations, called upon to decide the destinies of the whole world. German racial theory led Hitler and his friends to the conclusion that the Germans, as the only fully-fledged nation, should dominate other nations. English racial theory leads Mr. Churchill and his friends to the conclusion that the English-speaking nations, as the only full-fledged, should dominate the rest of the nations of the world.

    In fact, Mr. Churchill and his friends in England and the United States present an ultimatum to nations that do not speak English: recognize our domination voluntarily, and then everything will be all right, otherwise war is inevitable.

    But nations shed their blood for five years of brutal war for the sake of the freedom and independence of their countries, and not to replace the rule of Hitlers with the rule of Churchill. Therefore, it is likely that nations that do not speak English and constitute at the same time the vast majority of the world's population will not agree to go into new slavery.

    The tragedy of Mr. Churchill is that he, like an inveterate Tory, does not understand this simple and obvious truth.

    Undoubtedly, the installation of Mr. Churchill is an installation for war, a call for war with the USSR. It is also clear that such an attitude of Mr. Churchill is incompatible with the existing union treaty between England and the USSR. True, Mr. Churchill, in order to confuse the readers, in passing declares that the term of the Soviet-English agreement on mutual assistance and cooperation could well be extended to 50 years. But how to combine a similar statement by Mr. Churchill with his installation on the war with the USSR, with his preaching war against the USSR? It is clear that these things cannot be combined in any way. And if Mr. Churchill, calling for a war with the Soviet Union, considers at the same time the extension of the Anglo-Soviet treaty to 50 years, then this means that he considers this treaty as an empty piece of paper, which he needs only to cover with it and disguise your anti-Soviet installation. Therefore, one cannot take seriously the false statements of Mr. Churchill's friends in England about extending the term of the Soviet-English treaty to 50 years or more. The extension of the contract does not make sense if one of the parties violates the contract and turns it into an empty piece of paper. "
    2. “I don’t know whether Mr. Churchill and his friends will be able to organize a new campaign against the“ Eastern Europe ”after the Second World War. But if they succeed, that is unlikely, because millions of“ ordinary people ”guard the cause of peace, - it’s safe to say that they will be bits just like they were bits in the past, 26 years ago. "

But then it was necessary to turn on our brains and to develop our economy at a rapid pace, to raise the standard of living of our PEOPLE, and we looked at the back of the West thanks to such a policy. Ugh, it's disgusting to watch and listen to all this in the media, especially the speeches of any talkers from the authorities.

    What is the result of this? The products of sub-sanctions enterprises will become cheaper. The enterprises themselves will become cheaper. Profit from enterprises (if any) will collapse. Well, all these oligarchs will outbid them. Gradually, in shares, maybe through Total / Wangward / BlackRock.
    The government will give money to the oligarchs, as the bankers had before. Our money. No options.

    Friends, this is what Paul Craig Roberts, Ph.D. in Economics, former US Under Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy in the Ronald Reagan administration writes about our government. "There is no other reason for creating a long list of false accusations against Russia, except to prepare the careless peoples of the West for war. If the Russian authorities do not realize that Washington is fighting Russia, then the Russian authorities threaten the survival of Russia. If "the Russian authorities continue to believe that" the doors to dialogue are open, "the Russian authorities are in incurable hallucinations." Literate people even in mattresses understand where their legs grow from! And our government decided to support the ruble of private companies! How long can this go on ?! Buy 51% of the assets of companies, gentlemen from the government, in favor of the state, at the price at the time of their privatization! And all will be happy! And help companies, and the state in the future support! I just think that if 51% is bought back at those prices, then the current money will not be enough by 1,5% - Mr. Chubais at that time gave everything either for nothing or "for the ruble."
