Washington called the conditions for improving relations with Moscow

Improving bilateral relations between the United States and Russia is possible only if two conditions are met - Moscow’s implementation of the Minsk agreements and refusal to intervene in the "American democratic processes." This was stated by US First Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan at a meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, the US State Department said in a statement.


First Deputy Secretary of State Sullivan confirmed to Foreign Minister Lavrov that improving relations depends on Moscow’s fulfillment of the Minsk agreements and refusal to undermine our democratic processes

- said the head of the press service of the State Department, Morgan Ortegus.

As the State Department explained, the meeting between Sullivan and Lavrov took place on the sidelines of the G20 summit ahead of Sullivan's assumption of the post of US ambassador to Russia. The parties discussed a wide range of issues, including North Korea and Syria.

Earlier, Russia has repeatedly stated that it is not a party to the conflict in the Donbass and, accordingly, a party to the Minsk agreements. The parties to these agreements are the people's republics of Donbass and Ukraine, and it is they who must fulfill their obligations. Russia, along with Germany and France, is only a guarantor of the implementation of the agreements.

      And will they also stop interfering in our affairs?

        Che these sheep are constantly proving and making excuses to them, they do not want to understand and do not need to. How many times they intervened in the affairs of Russia to count, they had to be strangled for a long time. It is necessary to send the wretched with their conditions and requirements.

Ensuring diplomatic and consular relations of the Russian Federation with foreign countries, relations with international organizations, meetings, discussion of problems, making decisions on pressing problems, finding compromises is his job.

          This is you about the minister whom all US secretaries of state love to hate, each of whom Lavrov managed to annoy. With a kind word, only Madeleine Albright recalls him, who was “lucky" not to work with Lavrov. Where exactly does he make excuses? Or to solve the numerous problems that have accumulated in the relationship, while proving your point in your "deep" opinion is called to make excuses?

          It’s just that Lavrov is trying to explain to these rams one simple truth, which is that Russia is not a party to the conflict. Nothing else, in terms of excuses, is written in the article.
          PS-mattresses put forward precisely such conditions that cannot be met a priori, because there are no such conditions, and therefore there will never be improvements with Moscow. It’s like in a joke about a traffic cop and a sandblast driver;
          - I stop you for the tenth time and ask what is streaming from you?
          - And for the tenth time I’m explaining to you - winter, road, ice, sprinkle.

        It is better to formulate the problem right away, then extinction may not be necessary. Just as overly belligerents are forced into peace without their complete destruction, other pests can be forced to refuse to do harm in many ways, without them infiltrating us with sympathy. Although this is longer, it is also impossible to accept destruction as the most effective way to solve problems. It is fraught with the transfer by people of this method to solving personal problems, in addition to the fact that, as a rule, it creates new problems.

    Washington called the conditions for improving relations with Moscow

    Interestingly, is the opinion of Washington so important for Russia itself, without which it is impossible to sit or stand up? Or do they hope in the Washington regional committee to keep the Russian people in a state of constant amazement?
    Not for business, gentlemen Americans! With Russia it is necessary:
    “Do not hope that once you take advantage of Russia's weakness, you will receive dividends forever. Russians always come for their money. And when they come - do not rely on the Jesuit agreements that you have signed, supposedly justifying you. They are not worth the paper on which they are written. Therefore, it’s worth playing with the Russians honestly or not at all. ”

    Read between the lines.
    - do not expect to improve relations;
    - We will continue to use the Minsk agreements against you.
    - we need a constantly smoldering war on the borders of Russia, for
    of this we organized a coup in Ukraine.

    It's time to set counter conditions. With us they are more justified.
    Geth from Ukraine, Syria and Georgia. Unlock Venezuelan accounts. Withdraw bases from Japan. Leave the territory of the former ATS countries, including the territory of the former GDR. Repeal Magnitsky’s Law without any conditions. Bring to equality the number of diplomats without taking into account our mission to the UN. To extradite all illegally captured and convicted citizens of Russia. Stop the paid media libel campaign. Get out of the Shevarnadze line in the Pacific Ocean, since it has not been ratified by us (as well as the transfer of Crimea to Ukraine). Eliminate all biological laboratories near the borders of Russia in a week.
    And not afraid to go on an aggravation, stop licking them and fondling them.

      Decision makers do not come from the fears you draw, unhealthy drives, or servility. Assume that the situation is exacerbated as much as is appropriate in this situation, given our capabilities. Now look for arguments that refute this assumption. Of course, this is for discussion. Most of the local opponents of the regime act within the framework of another discourse: they will throw the ball on a fan aimed at power, then secretly minus those who justify Putin's actions.

    First Deputy Secretary of State Sullivan confirmed to Foreign Minister Lavrov that improving relations depends on Moscow’s fulfillment of the Minsk agreements and refusal to undermine our democratic processes

    Py.Sy. According to Zadornov: "Well - these are stupid Americans, well - stupid ...".

    The case when the Foreign Ministry may not respond at all. Or just say "we do not agree." And with what specifically we do not agree - with the wording in Minsk or in the "democratic processes" in the USA - let their head be guessed.

    Improving bilateral relations between the United States and Russia is possible only if two conditions are met - Moscow’s implementation of the Minsk agreements and refusal to intervene in the "American democratic processes."


    Improving relations between Russia and the United States is possible only with the complete refusal of the United States to intervene in events around the world. Instead, the United States will only engage in its own democracy on its territory, and not poke its nose anywhere.

      And what do you think the Foreign Minister should do?


      Do not make excuses like a ram, I repeat again. And she took the girl Zakharova as an assistant, who stated in all the hearings that they say we are Russian Christians and we need to turn the other cheek up under the blow .. Isn’t that a fool?

    Decision makers must solve the challenges they face. And do not be sad then that “they deceived me,” because this is no longer a personal matter (although for any alpha leader who deserve to rule it, at least insulting), we all suffer losses, both moral and material.
    And at the very least, there must be an answer for the “deceived”, so that it would be disgraceful. And if for this it is necessary to promise some kind of punishment, sanctions or steps - this must be done, otherwise we just invite and provoke to continue with us in the same way.
    Moreover, the global task is to warn against any military steps against us, seriously and seriously, and what kind of expressions to find it is necessary to find - in my opinion harder than now.
    In response to the show with the Skripals, we were supposed to kick the British ambassador into the neck, and not then react to their actions. This is so, for example. And in response to the lack of contacts with the daughter of Skripal, a Russian citizen, the British citizen should disappear, until the issue is clarified. An eye for an eye, otherwise - we are the second grade, it is possible with us, it is not with them.

    So let the United States not climb onto the borders of the Russian Federation and everything will be OK ... otherwise weary with its Russophobia and anti-Russian politics ...

    Washington called the conditions for improving relations with Moscow[Quote] [/ quote]
    Every time I find out about the conditions for improving relations with Moscow or the lifting of sanctions, I involuntarily recall a joke:

    A possible American ambassador to Russia should not expose ANY conditions of Russia, but it’s nice to be kind and appease (at least in words) Russia. And he was immediately rude - that means he should not be an ambassador!
