The bill on sanctions against Turkey for the S-400 introduced to the US Congress

The US Congress has introduced a bill introducing sanctions against Turkey for the acquisition of the Russian Triumph S-400 anti-aircraft missile system. This was reported on the website of Congressman Adam Kinzinger, who is the author of this initiative.


Document on sanctions against Turkey, dubbed the Russian Export Suppression Act weapons"According to the record, he entered Congress on Thursday. Congress authors Adam Kinsinger, Abigail Spanberger and Michael McCall became the authors of the document. They propose that the deal on the purchase of S-400 air defense systems be" substantial ", which, under US law," requires sanctions. "

The bill indicates that restrictions against Ankara are planned to be introduced on the basis of the American law "On countering the adversaries of America through sanctions" (CAATSA). The text itself is not given in the document, so at the moment it is not known what kind of sanctions the US lawmakers want to impose on Turkey.

Recall that Turkey, which is a member of NATO, has acquired four divisions of S-400 air defense systems from Russia. Deliveries of complexes began in mid-July last year. This deal provoked a negative reaction from the United States, demanding to annul it, and instead of purchasing the S-400, purchase American Patriot systems. After Ankara’s refusal, Washington expelled Turkey from the fifth-generation F-35 fighter program, and also threatened to impose sanctions. Apparently in Washington, they considered that this time had come.

In turn, Ankara warned that in the event of the imposition of sanctions, Turkey will retaliate against the United States.

    I’m wondering what the US will do when the sanctions are over and there is no one else to impose on them?
    I think even sixes like Ukraine and others will understand that they put it on a dead nag.
    The only bad thing is that they can start a war from powerlessness.

      Nothing bad will happen.
      There will be a settlement system / monetary system - a different one - without the dollar as a universal settlement instrument.
      Or rather, there will be 2 systems + gray zone.
      USA and satellites, China / Russia and satellites, and even "undecided" or trying to fish ... on the border of two worlds.
      In the gray zone, local conflicts of varying intensity will occur. No one will dare to receive unacceptable damage in response, so a hot world war will not happen.
      They will try to strangle each other "peacefully".
      Nothing new.
      In other words: The United States, which is still trying to play the role of world leader, does not have enough brains (or “creativity”) to propose a new program / agenda to the rest of the world.
      And therefore, they are now actually reproducing the system of the bipolar world during the Cold War of the last century.

    Now, like in chess, the move of the Turks. As an option, not to let US warships into the Russian Sea, closing the straits for them, ideally not to participate in NATO exercises for the next six months at least, to show the US that the Turks do not obey them. ...

      The Turks, according to the Montreux Convention, cannot close the straits for the passage of ships of other countries, if they are not at war with them. The limitation is associated only with their displacement. It also seems like the ban on the passage of gas carriers is in effect. if the gazul in the strait explodes, it will not seem to anyone.
      It seems that these "sanctions and counter-sanctions" will be limited to personal sanctions against a number of officials on both sides, in order to demonstrate that words and deeds do not differ and everything will settle down. In general, this is an unusual situation when the NATO Chief Staff introduces sanctions against a NATO member country.

      Here is one example.
      The Turkish lira in 2018 has repeatedly updated historical lows against the dollar and euro, it depreciated against these currencies more than 30%. The situation escalated after US President Donald Trump announced that he had authorized a doubling of duties on aluminum and steel from Turkey - up to 20% and 50%, respectively.

            Several years ago in Turkey 1 dollar = 3 lira, now it is 6,5 lira, in the Russian Federation 1 dollar = 30 rubles, now = 71 rubles, in Azerbaijan 1 dollar = 0,80 kopecks, now = 1,7 manats. The currencies of these countries have depreciated in about the same way, that is, the tendency is the same, and if you laugh at this, then at everyone, or not be malicious, try to understand the reason for everyone.

              The strengthening of the shekel is taking place against the background of positive changes in the economy. On November 17, the CSB released its first estimate of Israel's economic growth in the third quarter. Contrary to the forecasts of the Ministry of Finance, which promised growth of 3-3,1%, in three months the country's GDP grew by 4,1% on an annualized basis, and in the private sector - by 5%. Export volume increased by 3,6%, consumption volume - by 2,8%.
              The Governor of the Bank of Israel is trying stop shekel growth since products that go overseas give businesses less dollar income.

    the project was submitted by three senators. There are more than 400 people in the congress. Any of them can introduce any bill. They could introduce a bill to repaint polar bears black.

      The trick here is that if Congress approved the bill, then this is - for a long time.
      Presidents cannot cancel it in the future either.
      Let's say Trump makes peace with Erdogan after the sanctions law is approved
      against Turkey (peace-friendship-NATO), and nothing can be done ...
      Therefore, Erdogan risks playing the geopolitical games between Russia and the United States.

    The project is interesting.
    A country that is a NATO member becomes officially, on the basis of US law, an adversary of the United States.
    We see the states disintegrate deeper and deeper.
    If the bill is passed, the aspen stake will be driven into NATO's grave thoroughly.

        On 2 January 01, the United States imposed restrictions on Israeli visa periods for Israeli citizens. Israeli businessmen are most dissatisfied, Russians have a visa twice as long. The signal for Israeli business is enough to earn money in the USA. The United States already has hundreds of billions of dollars assists Israel.

          2 US imposed visa restrictions on Israeli citizens

          Innovations touched primarily the most common work visa category L-1, intended for employees of international companies transferred to work in the United States. For holders of such a visa, the duration of their stay in the United States has been reduced from 60 to 48 months.(4 years).
          The main goal of innovation is the fear of Americans that unwanted visitors in the future will burden the American health care system.Foreigners cannot get an entry visa without medical insurance (in some cases, expensive American insurance). Its cost exceeds the flight by 1,5-2 times.
          Russia provides American tourists with a visa for a period of up to 3 years old Russians wishing to visit the United States will be issued permission to enter exactly for the same period.
          Pay attention! Israel 4 years, Russia 3 year.

          Israel receives 3,7 billion annually under peace treaty with Egypt ONLY for the purchase of American weapons with the approval of the list in Congress. Which is 0,9% of Israel's GDP. Egypt and Jordan are 1,8 and 0,9 respectively.

            For now, I will answer 3,7 billion. Only in 2025 will you start spending all the US assistance 100% on the purchase of weapons only in the USA. You have only been cutting off since 2019. Before that, you bought oil with this money, part of it was converted into shekels. Find the exact amount. aid is not possible. But the publicly available amount is more than $ 1 trillion. The figure is 49, excluding inflation.

              In 2016, the US and Israeli governments signed a new 10-year-old Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on military assistance covering the period from 2019 to 2028. Under the terms of the memorandum, the United States pledges to provide Israel 38 billion dollars of military aid ($ 33 ​​billion in grants for foreign military funding plus $ 5 billion). This memorandum of understanding replaced the previous $ 10 billion 30-year agreement that was in effect until fiscal 2016.
              Spent 2018 3,100.
              2019 3,300.

    Americans fight in hysteria, which once again proves that they are confidently losing their influence in the world. Previously, one word of the American ambassador to any country was enough for everyone to stand at attention. Now they have to impose whole packages of sanctions on everyone and everything, including cats and dogs. Maybe these are big words, but I would call it the beginning of agony. Moreover, the American sanctions, for the most part, laid a bolt.

      After the sanctions imposed in August 2018, the economic losses incurred by Russia amount to about 0,5-1,5% of GDP growth

    Interestingly, how many more sanctions will be imposed on the Turks? For the purchase of the S-400, the Americans refused to supply the F-35, broke the agreement on the production of spare parts for the F-35 and again sanctions. As I understand it, this is something of a punishment, even if the Turks give up the S-400, they will gouge for another 20 years.
