How British sanctions will save Russia

29
On the eve of the meeting of EU foreign ministers, the Foreign Office revealed cards regarding the key decisions to be taken during the event. Representatives of the EU members will sign a document providing for the introduction of new sanctions against Russia due to the use of chemical weapons in Syria and Salisbury, developed by a tandem of London and Paris.


How British sanctions will save Russia


Despite the fact that the official decision has not yet been made, the press release of the British Foreign Ministry can actually be considered as such. First, the less influential countries of the European community are too susceptible to pressure from Albion, which is the main US ally in Europe. Secondly, now for other EU leaders, which are experiencing far from the best of times, it is critically important to demonstrate unity before “external threats,” even if contrived.

Western Europe has much more significant risks from economic sanctions than the United States. The economic relations of the USA with Russia are not so significant considering the volumes of trade between the countries. Another thing - the countries of Central and Eastern Europe, such as Germany. According to existing estimates, German exports to Russia declined by about 15-20 percent. In the future, only the deterioration of this indicator is expected.

The impact of sanctions is measurable not only in terms of quantitative export and import actual flows, but also in the amount of cash investments that are harder to measure, but, nevertheless, is real. European countries are really beginning to feel the negative effects of sanctions, which have not yet reached their peak.

The ability to resist the European Union is reflected in the counter sanctions imposed by Russia, which so far apply to the agricultural sector. Moscow is gradually moving forward in expanding counter-sanctions. Nevertheless, Washington is insisting on expanding restrictive measures covering an increasing number of areas of cooperation between Russia and the EU.

Sanctions will force Russia to trade more with BRICS and emerging markets, which will have a stimulating effect on Russian industry and technology and will reduce the impact of the dollar by switching to settlement in national currencies. US policy in the long run is very short-sighted in economic terms. Obviously, the US has aggravated the situation in Ukraine for political reasons. Probably, the victims of this short-sightedness will be primarily European citizens.

However, this short-sighted strategy has clear advantages - for Russia. Over time, it will become more and more noticeable that Russia is developing trade and economic relations with other countries. In the long run, this will have a favorable effect on the Russian economy: any diversification is always good.

    Hmm what these sanctions are like a double-edged sword ... the opinion of the author is encouraging of course ... but what about then the statements of Mr. Kudrin ... who powder our brains by declaring the following ...
    Today, Russia's foreign policy should be subordinated to reducing the tension in our relations with other countries, and, at a minimum, to maintaining or lowering the sanctions regime, rather than building up.

    But this is the head of the Accounts Chamber ... a person placed in one of the key positions in RUSSIA.

        As if for the first time. Europe in the last century "recovered from the ashes" twice, the States were rapidly "swollen with fat."

      Kudrina listen to not respect yourself. He always made statements to undermine the economy. His forecasts come true or not, he does not care at all. I won’t be surprised if he shouts tomorrow: citizens, rather buy buckwheat! I do not understand why this henchman again on the state. service

      In vain do you think that if he is the head of the Accounts Chamber, then he has seven spans in his forehead. The usual one bugged like 95 percent of all who are at the top of power. What is the Accounts Chamber - a regular accounting auditing office with the ability to analyze the activities of enterprises, with the subsequent processing of these data in the form of an analytical document on the expenditure of funds allocated by the state for various purposes. And how to use the results of his work, he does not decide. He only reports, and the decision is made at the very top: the President, the Security Council and the government.

        The Central Bank did not rule out continued sanctions and a drop in oil prices to $ 35.
        “In addition, we are also considering a risk scenario involving a drop in oil prices to $ 35 per barrel and increased sanctions.” - Ksenia Yudaeva, Russian economist. Kommersant, 12/10/18, 17:36

          Interviewed by Izvestia, experts believe that no drama happened: the crop can be considered good, and the Russian Federation remains the undisputed leader in the world grain market. True, it is impossible to exclude the increase in prices for grain, and, consequently, for bread within the country.

          i.e., agrarians will not burn out without sanctions, and jamon, prosciutto, Roquefort, foie gras are not relevant for most Russians (expensive), apples and pears (fruits in general) - imported (most), our cheeses or Belarus, only our meat. growth sanctions will no longer give (or minimal).

    On the one hand, sanctions are certainly not sugar, but on the other, they finally gave impetus to work to develop their industries (the same as agricultural). In principle, we have always been under some kind of sanction since the days of the USSR, but we live. But this axis of Washington - London - Paris is already tired of the order and directly begs for big troubles that could easily arise in the world from the activities of this three and they sang along.

      Very correctly noted - troubles will arise: the same Italians will remember Libya for them - they have torn the country apart without consulting the "allies", provoked a flow of refugees to Italy and "threw" it safely. The Italians are very dissatisfied, and they are really tired of the sanctions: there is no help from Europe, and they also do not give money. And in Libya, the Italians were all seized and the top type, but the "allies" decided differently ...

    It was said from the very beginning, "sanctions are only beneficial."

    In the long run, this will have a beneficial effect on the Russian economy: any diversification is always good.

    The most important effect - Britain will be forced to squeeze our thieves in London. Itself will inevitably come to this if it does not stop.

    As for salvation, it will be seen further. Who, and how, will save. It is important to know how the Government, and how, in what time frame will respond to British sanctions. So far, there is a jump in the pace of withdrawal of funds to British offshore.

    Sanctions will be paliative for an imaginary chemical attack. There will be no influence on Russia - good or bad. In the EU, all the sanctions have already bothered everyone and everything is done just to do something, but not harm the economy, but also to repel such splinters as England and Poland, so as not to spill onto the moon.
