Estimation of Russian losses from sanctions


There is an idea that Russia has already adapted to Western economic sanctions. Many people have the impression that these restrictions do not so much interfere with government and business. The occasionally flickering assessment that Russia's damage from sanctions amounted to about 100 billion US dollars, already, it seems, does not shock society. Are sanctions "not so noticeable" in reality?


Pipe at the bottom of the Baltic


At the end of January, the deputy chairman of the board of Gazprom, Elena Burmistrova, at a gas forum in Vienna, said:

Russia alone will complete the Nord Stream -2 gas pipeline. True, it will take several months, perhaps more than six months.

Later, the media, citing the environment of Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov, reported:

The construction of Nord Stream 2 may resume on February 1. This will be done by the Russian pipe layers Fortuna and Defender, whose work in the territorial waters of Denmark is already seemingly coordinated with the authorities of this Scandinavian country.


The deadline indicated in the message has long passed, and the trunk pipe worth 11 billion US dollars still lies at the bottom of the Baltic. Moreover, Gazprom was forced, on conditions not very favorable for itself, to conclude an agreement with Ukraine's Naftagaz on gas transit to Europe, escorting the transaction by paying a previously imposed fine in the amount of almost 3 billion US dollars. These are the consequences of restriction alone on Nord Stream-2.

Non-frigate hulls


Another major damage from sanctions is associated with Ukraine. In response to the reunification of Crimea with Russia, the post-Maidan authorities banned the Zorya-Mashproekt Nikolaev company from supplying gas turbines to Russian shipyards.

The ban was very sensitive. At the shipyards of Russia, half a dozen hulls of warships under construction hovered. It took about four years for the Rybinsk NPO Saturn to be able to replace Ukrainian turbines.

As a result, the construction of the ocean frigates of project 22350 moved strongly “to the right”. Now in service only one of them - “Admiral fleet Soviet Union Gorshkov ”, and three frigates of project 1156 remained in the hulls. With great difficulty, the Russian shipbuilders managed to agree on the completion of these frigates for India.

Because of the sanctions, plans to upgrade the Navy fell through. In addition to frigates, the construction of ships of the near sea zone was delayed (for example, missile launchers of the Buyan-M project), Chancellor Merkel tried to stop the delivery of German engines for them.

Many enterprises of the defense complex experienced difficulties with components and assemblies. However, in public space this topic was not particularly discussed due to its delicacy and certain secrecy. In the past year and a half or two, the defense industry has come to life a little. But the problems still remain.

Western financiers returned their money


After the so-called sectoral sanctions were introduced by the United States and the European Union in the summer of 2014, the Russian financial system faltered. Investors became worried and began to export capital from Russia in droves.

By the end of the year, approximately 75 billion US dollars flowed from the financial market of Russia to the West. The ruble depreciated by almost 10 percent. Import goods rose even more. President Obama boastfully stated that "Russia's economy is torn to shreds."

This was prompted not only by the collapse of the ruble and the financial market. Serious damage was suffered by Russian corporations and banks. Having borrowed funds in Western markets, they were forced to quickly repay debts.

Banks of Western countries were banned from providing financing for a period of more than 90 days to Russian counterparties that fell under sanctions. Thus, as the London Financial Times wrote, Russian banks and state-owned companies repaid approximately $ 33 billion in foreign loans and borrowings over the year, and private companies and banks - $ 87 billion.

Then the Minister of Finance Anton Siluanov, speaking at the forum of the Financial Academy under the government, for the first time publicly called the official estimate of Russia's losses from "geopolitical sanctions" - about $ 40 billion a year.

Specialists argue about damage assessment


So how much has Russia lost due to sanctions?

Siluanov’s assessment was then disputed by many officials and politicians. In August last year, the RBC portal, citing Rosstat data, cited a very ridiculous figure of losses from sanctions - 800 billion rubles in 2011 prices.

This example shows that confusion over the assessment of damage from Western restriction will be a matter of debate for a long time to come. Someone underestimates losses to show the stability of the Russian economy, while others, on the contrary, overestimate, frightening the average man with the politics of the authorities who do not want to make concessions to the West.

Let's look at the estimates of Western experts. At the end of 2018, Bloomberg experts calculated that due to sanctions and related factors (for example, a slowdown in global growth) since 2014, Russia's GDP has been 6% below the possible level.

Given that the nominal value of our GDP, according to the IMF, was then $ 1657 billion, it is easy to determine the possible losses of the Russian economy - about $ 100 billion.

The numbers are impressive. Obvious for everyone: sanctions are by no means a blessing. They hinder the development of the economy and the country as a whole, but you can still adapt to them, for example, by focusing on the domestic market and developing your own industry.

    It is not so deeply swallowed bait. And if to the rectum, any sanction would be equal to a torn sphincter. So who contributed to swallowing the bait ?! I think everything is clear.

      The Russian sanctions were always useful to us .. We start to scratch the back of our head ... As the saying goes, "Until the thunder strikes, the man will not cross himself .." ..
      And the most interesting thing in this matter is that the Anglo-Saxons began checking our thieves in their land .. they require confirmation of the legality of the state! Otherwise, confiscation ..)) 0 As they say, they created the conditions for them to run away with stolen money, and then they waited and confiscated .. Excellent plan! That's just Abramovich and others outside this plan ..
      London will gather a good harvest from runaway Russians .. Well, that’s what they need ..
      We have repeatedly offered them an amnesty if the capital is transferred and repent ..
      Now in Great Britain there will be a new term "new poor Russians" laughing Do not mind them .. But such money will go away.

          Sanctions against us have always been and will be! And in order not to notice the smaller damage from these sanctions, or in general their sanctions, one must have its own production. Can't we let out planes and cars ourselves? Can't we build ships?
          They will tell me now that we are behind in the field of electronics. It is possible that this and how. But if you just buy, then you don’t learn anything.
          The notorious "import substitution" in me, personally, causes irony, instead of developing our own, we buy in China. All!

        Please rave? From a disease called monetarism? 1.5 decades Russia spends less than it earns. And inflation is several times higher than American. Although the Fed does not suffer from complexes at all. Draws money as much as he wants. And the IMF's scarecrow - "denieh print, no inflation, and all kirdyk", helps remarkably. From excessive economic growth.

          Spending less than earning is another story, and if it is connected with the printing of money, then remotely.
          I repeat: If you print money without earning it, this will lead to the fact that the money will turn into pieces of paper. Learn the classics: Money is a measure of value, not a product of a printing press. Yes, actually this is not a classic, but the basics of economic knowledge.

    Losses are not small, but inevitable. Along with the strengthening of Russia, the pressure on it increased. Long before the Crimea. On the other hand, import substitution is already saving the country's currency and even entering foreign markets brings it. In the future, it more than compensates for losses and strengthens, diversifies the economy. One can not speak about the price of Crimea and the Russians living there, all this is priceless. Yes, and the authorities, for once, thought about the economy, and not just finances, imposed a restriction on the property of officials abroad, and ceased to kiss the West.

    sanctions are far from good. They hinder the development of the economy and the country as a whole, but you can still adapt to them, for example, by focusing on the domestic market and developing your own industry.

    Yes, sanctions are not good for the country. And who will develop the domestic market?
    The Communist Party proposed a lot of different programs and solutions for the development of the country's domestic market. But no one in the government paid attention to the proposed programs.
    Here is what G.A. Zyuganov said in an interview on February 6, 2020:
    We proposed the formation of a government of public confidence. But this did not go. And they did not even accept our proposal for the implementation of the sustainable rural development program, which was supervised by Gordeev. Kashin proposed this program and actively supported Volodin. In my opinion, this is a strategic mistake of the president ...
    The second topic that bothers us extremely is the bowels. You and I have the only Constitution where you can trade in mineral resources. Where 15 ghouls were planted on the body of the country, and they captured 10 thousand mines. And they do not want to pay normal taxes. I looked at the statistics for the last three years. They sold your raw materials for almost 20 trillion rubles. The budget has never been more than eight. Even when there was a Horde yoke, they took one tithe from the yard. If they took more, then the bribe-taker's head was chopped off. And here they take more than half and do not want to pay normal taxes. We believe that all this should belong to the people

      With Zyugano-m, it’s not very there either. You can talk a lot of things. A business - a mosquito dripped. He won over from a neighboring country with a torn constitution — he promised, made a “kina, for the execution and chose, if only he wasn’t a valtsman. But how he turned around, ALL was blown away. I’m not me and not my hut. Judging by cases, not blabble.” And what matters is Zyuganov?

        This is a blablabla, Zyuganov just does not deal. The Communist Party proposed and is offering, as I have already said, a lot of different programs and decisions on the development of the country's domestic market. And it’s not the Communist Party’s fault, including Zyuganov’s, that they don’t want to hear them.
        A small list of proposed laws but not adopted by the majority of the State Duma:
        Increased funding for municipal and local self-government sufficient to carry out their functions;
        State regulation of prices for tariffs, goods and services;
        The allocation of funds to pay off state debt for pre-reform savings of citizens in the Sberbank of the Russian Federation is two times more than established;
        On providing disabled people and families with disabled children discounts on payment of housing, regardless of the housing stock;
        Tighter measures to combat corruption (bribery) and the responsibility of officials of internal affairs bodies for crimes, including corruption abuse;
        Strengthening responsibility for holding public shows and propaganda that offend public morality;
        The draft law introduced by the Communist Party No. 624870-6 “On Amending Certain Legislative Acts of the Russian Federation in order to Prohibit Certain Officials from Owning Real Estate Abroad” was rejected.

        15 points that the Communist Party proposes in connection with changes to the constitutionare those.
        1. To introduce into the Basic Law a provision on the state-forming role of the Russian people in the multinational family of equal peoples of the Russian Federation.
        2. To fix the belonging of natural resources of Russia to its people, to guarantee to all citizens of the country a decent share of income from mining.
        3. To secure the retirement age as the most important guarantee: 60 years for men, 55 years for women.
        4. Make mandatory the indexation of pensions, social benefits and scholarships by the value of the consumer price growth index for the previous year.
        5. To establish that the minimum wage and pension payments cannot be lower than the subsistence minimum, which should guarantee the satisfaction of a person’s basic needs for housing, food, clothing, medical care, access to education and cultural values, and travel by public transport.
        6. To fix that payments for housing and communal services cannot exceed 10% of the total family income.
        7. To expand the powers of the parliament to control the work of officials, fixing in the Constitution the concepts of “parliamentary inquiry”, “parliamentary control”, “parliamentary investigation”.
        8. To give the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation the right to decide on trust or mistrust in the Russian government, its individual members, and the heads of federal executive bodies.
        9. To consolidate the election of members of the Federation Council of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation, governors, mayors of the population by direct secret ballot without any “filters”.
        10. Guarantee the real independence of the judiciary, consolidate the election of magistrates, districts and city judges.
        11. Introduce a norm according to which falsification of voting results is considered an encroachment on the foundations of the constitutional system and is strictly punishable in accordance with criminal law.
        12. To determine that the most important function of the Bank of Russia should be to ensure economic growth in the country and increase the welfare of citizens.
        13. Assign to local governments the right to such a share of tax revenues that guarantees them the ability to exercise their powers.
        14. To ensure a deep, systematic, holistic reform of the Constitution in the interests of the popular majority. As soon as possible, adopt the law on the Constitutional Assembly and proceed with its implementation.
        15. Adopt a new referendum law reflecting the principles of democracy in the Russian Federation. The proposals for the reform of the Basic Law developed by the Constitutional Assembly shall be approved at a nationwide referendum.

        These are the proposals of the Communist Party, which fully comply with the anti-crisis program of the party.

            Few ? "Red Governor" Levchenko increased the income of his region from
            The governor cited the situation in the forest complex of the region as an example of successful work. Tax revenues to the consolidated budget of the Irkutsk region from the activities of timber industry enterprises increased from 3 billion rubles in 2015 to 10,3 billion rubles in 2018. At the same time, the volume of illegal logging fell from 1,1 million m3 in 2016 to 569,8 thousand m3 in 2018.

            In general, for the period 2015 - 2018, tax and non-tax revenues of the regional budget increased by 54,3 billion rubles, or by 65%, which is the eighth largest value among all regions of the country. The growth of own revenues continued in 2019 - it is expected that tax and non-tax revenues will amount to 144,9 billion rubles, which is 5,3% higher than the same indicator in 2018.
            I made everyone pay taxes. Not everyone likes it. But we increased the gross regional product by 7%, and the revenue side of the budget - 2,5 times. All this suggests that we are forcing businesses to pay taxes and live by the law.

            Levchenko FORCED the unfortunate deripaska to pay taxes not 200 million, but ONE BILLION. And this is only in one area.
            And if in the country?

    It is interesting that there are those who are naive who believe that we do not care about sanctions? Of course, they slowed down the growth of the Russian economy, but we must understand that they have always been (against the USSR) and always will be (against Russia), because our country is pursuing a course independent from the USA, there are few such countries in the world. Some sanctions will be lifted, others will be introduced, because the hegemon and his minions will do everything to slow down the development of Russia. Not sanctions are important, but how we adapt under their influence!

Thanks to them, agriculture has risen, machine-building plants are being created and have already been created .. And if you count, then the lost 100 billion. pay off and make a profit in the future.

    Let's look at the estimates of Western experts. At the end of 2018, Bloomberg experts calculated that due to sanctions and related factors (for example, a slowdown in global growth) since 2014, Russia's GDP has been 6% below the possible level.
    Given that the nominal value of our GDP, according to the IMF, was then $ 1657 billion, it is easy to determine the possible losses of the Russian economy - about $ 100 billion.

    If you read the text carefully, it follows that Western experts do not even have a methodology for assessing Russia's damage from sanctions over the past years, and this is obvious. And their attempt to link the overall losses of our country with a slowdown in global growth rates suggests that they have no idea what Russia suffered the most damage from and what is the ratio of these losses.
    In general, based on the text, we can say that the “experts” are highly politicized in their assessments, and given that Russia has developed the latest weapons systems in these years and created infrastructures for the sale of hydrocarbons, it can be argued that we have not all developed so badly this time, since such programs were pulled without foreign borrowing. Otherwise, where would the finances come from for such large-scale projects, and besides this, supporting New Russia and Syria all these years, or buying gold - apparently Western "experts" did not think about it.

        It is possible and necessary, and this requires income from the export of hydrocarbons.

    In my opinion, the sanctions were useful for Russia:
    1. Agriculture since the days of the USSR has been a bottomless black hole, and now in a huge plus.
    2. They began to revive their industry, and not the industry of dependents-brothers (and other fraternal peoples).
    3. Bank speculators cut off easy money and they are forced to invest in real sectors of the economy. If they had not limited access to Western loans, the dollar would now cost 150-200 rubles.
    4. The most important thing is that they started to get off the oil needle, which no one has ever succeeded in (in the USSR - the Russian Federation).

    Yes, there are costs. But you have to pay for everything. For so many years they have ruined their own economy, and now it is urgently necessary to revive.
    But I would bring Obama to the Nobel Prize in economics with pleasure - for solving Russia's economic problems.

        Salary is NOT paid by the STATE! And your director (or who he is there). am And if the management of a company (enterprise) does not think about its development and employees, does not establish production and sales, actually ruining it, what does the STATE have to do with it ?! I do not go into other issues of economic activity ... hi

      I agree with everything, except that the dollar would be worth 150-200.
      It could well have cost less than now.
      However, the example of neighbors shows that its own expensive currency is also not always good.

    fortunately, we have a large country with the remains of Soviet legacy, fortunately we can feed ourselves, fortunately we have enough of our own energy resources and rare earths. So it’s impossible to “strangle” us, we can only be slowed down.
    But we need to draw long-lasting conclusions from this situation - taken into account when interacting with countries that have thrown us so easily in connection with these sanctions. And proceed from additional legal protection measures in major transactions with these countries in the future. If necessary, even prescribe it in the form of an internal law a la Jackson-Vanik. Let them think before you do it later ..

    It’s they who have not yet taken over our farm industry, from imported raw materials, on foreign equipment, but our people. Up to potato starch (which is part of many drugs, the tablet swells and tears in the stomach), all from abroad. So if that, we will be treated with plantain and moonshine

    “The figures are impressive. It’s obvious to everyone: sanctions are by no means good. They hinder the development of the economy and the country as a whole, but you can still adapt to them, for example, by focusing on the domestic market and developing your own industry.”
    And who says sanctions are buzzing? Sanctions, then sanctions, to poison all hard labor to a working person. No one doubted that.
    Here a question for a moment, in another. As it turned out, never rely on some friends. And relatives by the way, too! Bo everyone has his own selfish interest. And for this very interest, you will be sold and bought. As Comrade Panikovsky taught in a famous book. In what other year ?!
    And then, draw conclusions. Unfortunately, the country began to draw conclusions a minute later. That is, as long as the face in the substance did not dunk seventy-two times.

      And who previously prevented the development of the domestic market? They hoped that the West would help us or were they forbidden us? It seems to us that there was a slogan ** Enter the world economy even with a scarecrow, even with a carcass! **. And ** the West will help us and will do everything for us! ** Slogan ** Nobody except us! ** was only with Stalin! But the slogan ** Nobody but us! ** anathematized and ridiculed. And who are we blaming now? Is it the West's fault that we abandoned our self-reliance? Why are we looking for the guilty abroad if we ourselves were eager for this, losing slippers !? Uncle is to blame !? You don’t want to hammer a nail at home, but your uncle is to blame! Well, we have wonderful logic! Ugh on her! Let's look at ourselves first. What have we done?

        As I understand it, the logic was initially logical.
        What is the point of developing / maintaining your engine for example. If there is no demand for engines. Let’s say about ship, it’s closer to me. General trends are similar.
        Ships / ships ceased to be mass-built (I just at that time finished my training and went out to work as a full-fledged worker).
        Duck here. Demand for diesel ship for example, no. What to do with the factory that produced them? Who will support three thousand employees, pay them salaries for simply going to work and playing chess ?!
        Hence the conclusion, to close the plant, to dissolve the people. And this plant served another forty-two plants. There is the same picture.
        One or two steamers in ten years cheaper and easier to buy a motor from the capitalists.
        And to think so, it’s easier to buy the whole ship from them.
        And then it suddenly turns out that our comrades are not comrades for us at all, but rather, on the contrary.
        But time has passed. There are no factories, professionals, some retired, some on the hill. There are no new ones. They must be grown for years.
        Here are such problems encountered right yesterday.

    "Assessment of Russian losses from sanctions"
    Hato Forbs and others regularly report an increase in the number of billionaires and millionaires.
    And the incomes of the top management cause a rash and envy even among Amer’s officials ....

        Well, agent Trumpov’s laurels are still far from him, and, ironically, the more often you assure Amers that this is not so, the more they are convinced of the opposite. lol

    Another simple opinion. The positive effect, at least, is that it is possible to understand that “Abroad will help us” should remain a quote and a winged expression in a comic sense, and not a guide to action. What is hopeless is the fact that they gave hope to our production, and the same one was corrupted by new taxes, inspections, and price increases through the same taxes and duties. In 15th, grocery vendors were opening at every step, and now all this has collapsed and again they have been replaced by networks like the "farmer's shop" and so on. Probably need another shake.

    It is already clear that sanctions have become a blessing for the Russian Federation and there are no real costs, only the pluses in the form of import substitution for the military commissar, Crimea, new domestic economic ties, the rejection of the dollar, etc. Sanctions are a vaccine for the economy.
