Trump advisor: the US has almost exhausted opportunities for the introduction of anti-Russian sanctions

The United States has practically nothing to subject to sanctions in Russia, and every day it is becoming more difficult to find targets for imposing restrictive measures. This was stated by the American President's National Security Advisor Robert O'Brien.


Speaking to reporters at the Pentagon, the adviser to the American president said that so many large-scale restrictions have already been imposed against Russia that there is practically nothing to be sanctioned at present, and some efforts have to be made to find objects for this.

The problem with the Russians is that there isn't much to sanction. I think we sanctioned 300 organizations and oligarchs in Russia, we sanctioned all energy companies

- said Robert O'Brien, adding that there is little the United States can do about Russia on the sanctions front. According to him, this is becoming more difficult due to the "constricting nature of the existing sanctions."

Recall that the United States imposed sanctions against Russia in many areas. Among them, in particular, sanctions for the annexation of Crimea, "interference" in the US presidential elections, the invasion of the armed forces in Ukraine, the construction of the Crimean bridge, the poisoning of Skripals and Navalny with the help of Novichok, etc.

Note that a number of sanctions against Russia, for example, due to the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, have not yet been introduced and are under consideration by the US Congress.

        Thank you for the sanctions "gentlemen", at least Russia has woken up from a rosy democracy, and so on.
        Gone are the politicians who quite seriously stated in the central media that why does Russia need to produce something on its own when it’s easier to buy equipment in the west ..
        There is a lot of oil, gas, etc.
        Russia is too tough for the West .. The amers have broken their teeth, not everything in the world is bought for money and a military threat .. The whole world is now looking at Russia at our confrontation between Good and Evil (I'm a little pathetic, but)
        These are the things going on with us guys .. We passed the first stage! But the most difficult thing is ahead ... Either Russia exists or it does not exist. hi

            I don't believe in O'Brien's sincerity! American Russophobes are so inventive about nasty things! And what is easier than anything, sucking it out of the finger or taking it from the ceiling, weighty to declare a reason that all the mongrels will immediately support? Or by ordering some mongrel to publish ...

        They were late with the swift. An alternative payment system has already been created and tested in case of disconnection from swift. And the shutdown itself will play against the United States. they will lose control over the financial transactions and the purpose of payments.

      And "FSE they don't give up"!

      And this is an indicator of our self-sufficiency and independence (in general, there are exceptions) in matters of critical infrastructure, defense, food security, etc. Maybe not everywhere is glamorous, but there are all opportunities for survival and development!

      That is, crude blackmail is not effective enough. It is impossible to grab by the throat and strangle ... The maximum is to grab the leg, but there the second heel marks the forehead laughing while pushing, maybe in the eye wassat

      It remains to impose sanctions against the railway track, it is not tolerantly wider than the European one. Against the territory, it is not tolerantly the most diverse, the largest and richest. There were many other things that could have been sanctioned. He's getting dark, is he really going to give up, it's too early for our import substitution to be completed, so let's put some effort into it, think of something, are you an adviser to the president, or who, if nothing comes to mind, we will send Kudrin or Gref, or better Chubais.) ))

    And you just impose sanctions against all of Russia, only for its very existence, and don't worry, otherwise it's funny for us to look at your attempts to make our life worse, under the pretext that "this is for our own purposes"! Here the government is in the lead, passing laws that do not work, because there is no one to control their implementation. ..

      Why look there? Russia has everything in terms of natural resources. Swift will not help turn it off - Russia will organize itself with China very quickly, everything has already been tested and is working. And there ... this ... as if Swift, as a payment system, did not stay in the ass as a result.
      Russia is by no means North Korea or Iran, take a look at the geographic map :))

    This is another enticement. Type already FSE there is nothing to enter. And then once and cut off from SVIFT. And voila, minus 15-20 percent of the profitability of any business working with foreign countries only on an increase in operating costs.

      2. Late, in principle. In Russia, the Russian analogue of payments has already been introduced on the interbank market. Looking at us and China began to create a similar system.
      3. Operating expenses will not increase by 20-30%. You have only set the deadline for payments and that is insignificant

      There is already a replacement for SVIFT. This is not a problem at all ... A terrible blow for hamsters will be the cutting off of the Internet ... Well, an autonomous Russian network will appear ... like in China. Why does Hong Kong boil periodically? And there the Internet WORKS. The rest of China has its own network.

          And not only this. The fact is that by "turning off" the Internet, they will leave Russian citizens face to face with the Russian media and TV. Therefore, not only will they not turn it off, but they will also strive to cram it into each iron.

            Yes, they even refused to block North Korea and Iran, although the United States asked .. not to mention that the Internet is the basis for "color" revolutions and is beneficial to their organizers ..
            Also, I quote- "Even if the US president had control over the main server - which he does not have - deleting the .ru zone files would be pointless, as they would continue to exist on other root servers and on mirror servers. Perhaps sending electronic letters would have been delayed by a few milliseconds, says Kleinwechter. But how could the Americans have made the files disappear from the mirror server in Moscow for political reasons? "
            the communication channel remains, we will go by ip .. "The delay in translating the literal addresses of domains into IP, when instead of the usual address in the command line it will be necessary to dial a certain number, will increase the access time to sites by a negligible time, in a few milliseconds"
            And in general, I will say as a signalman - with a working communication channel, to figure out exactly how to transfer information - this is already the second thing ..
            "Pseudo-top-level domain" is a term used to refer to domain names of computer networks that do not participate in the official global domain name system, but can use a similar hierarchy of domain names. Such domains include bitnet, csnet, exit, i2p, local, onion, oz, Freenet, uucp and zs. "

    The problem with the Russians is that there isn't much to sanction. I think we sanctioned 300 organizations and oligarchs in Russia, we sanctioned all energy companies
    Well, it’s the trouble with these Russians. I give a hint - to impose (impose) sanctions for the hatred of Russians towards the American "establishment." Sanctions on all Russians - 146 million by name (liber ... v and p ... exclude - these are your creatures).

    at present, there is practically nothing to subject to sanctions, some efforts have to be made to find objects for this

    I was always sure that the USA suck come up with sanctions from the finger, and now the evidence is in the form of the words of President Trump's adviser)

    The sanctions due to the construction of the gas pipeline are the apotheosis of course.

    There are only sanctions left for sanctions ...


    They have the opportunity to strengthen the already imposed sanctions. Most of the restrictions apply to US companies. They are trying to extend only part to other countries and partly it works. In this direction, they can increase pressure, potentially much tougher than purely American sanctions for Americans. But their allies are beginning to dislike it, you can rip the thread. Therefore, more new MH16s, skripals, bulk, newcomers, election interference, etc. are required. etc.
    Before tightening the nut at the allies, you need to lubricate the threads.
