Winter Is Coming. Joseph Biden threatens Russia with "sanctions from hell"

Four years of confrontation


The multi-day and obscure bustle around the presidency of the United States seems to have supplanted the covid news the agenda. The lack of congratulations from President Putin added to the severity of the situation. Even the sworn enemy of the United States, Venezuelan leader Nicolas Maduro, officially acknowledged the unofficial election results:

I congratulate President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris on their victory.

And congratulations never came from Moscow. This appears to be a fair reaction to the belligerent attitude, bordering on hatred, displayed by the aging American Democratic candidate. One of the signature phrases, repeated many times in Biden's campaign speeches, was the impending "hellish sanctions" against Russia and its assets. How can the President of the United States scare Moscow in five minutes?


Let's imagine a hypothetical situation that Biden will nevertheless keep his promises and direct most of his efforts against the Russian Federation. Incidentally, this is not the most likely scenario for the development of the situation - the pre-election rhetoric does not always coincide with the actual presidential work. But Russia has long been not held in high esteem by the "hawks" from the Democratic Party, and they can take certain steps towards escalation. Common sense dictates that there is nowhere to expand too much: the United States has imposed 46 sanctions of various kinds against Moscow over the entire period. But in a war, albeit a cold one, all means are good. First of all, personal sanctions are assumed related to the "poisoning" of Alexei Navalny. But Moscow has long been accustomed to such things, and they are perceived purely symbolically. The likelihood of the appointment of strict sectoral sanctions because of Navalny is low - it was a long time ago, and they have already begun to forget about it even in Europe, not to mention the Americans.

The United States, as the largest economy in the world, can afford to influence other countries with the dollar, and Russia is no exception. And at Biden's headquarters, such steps have been considered quite seriously and for quite some time. Michael Carpenter, Biden's adviser known as an outright sanctions hawk, said in 2019 regarding Russia:

To have a real effect, sanctions must target the economy as a whole.

The first idea, in this regard, may be a ban on the purchase of government debt securities of the Russian Federation. This, of course, is tangible, but not in the interests of the American elite, which is investing in Russian debt. In a society that is actually split in half, and even against a nervous pandemic background, this can be perceived ambiguously. Moscow's retaliatory action will be the sale of American debt securities, which is also quite tangible for the US budget. In general, in this game, Biden can only have double-edged steps with ambiguous consequences.

Already, real investors from the United States are building pseudo-legal multistage schemes for making money in Russia. For example, the American Honeywell built a plant in the Lipetsk region through its Singapore subsidiary, and on paper the money did not come from the United States at all. In the event of an exacerbation, such multi-moves will become more and more common. No matter how hard they tried in the West, they did not succeed in bringing Russia's potential to financial toxicity.

The outcome of the formation of the Congress will be completely inconvenient for Moscow. If the majority is behind the Democrats, they will be able to push through the sanctions packages against Russia even before Biden. The most unpleasant thing is that the Congress, it seems, will be precisely democratic.
The DETER plan "On containing foreign interference in the American elections" has long been hatched, and its authors will not give it up so easily. Just a few weeks ago, a group of Russian hackers, allegedly officers of the GRU, was put on the wanted list in absentia, accused of interfering in the American elections. Isn't there a reason to launch DETER? Or DASKA "On Protecting American Security Against Kremlin Aggression", in which the word "sanction" sounds five times and twice - "restrictions".

The following were selected as the targets of the sanctions: RF sovereign debt; persons involved in “illegal or corrupt actions in the interests of Vladimir Putin”; investments in oil and gas projects in Russia; the shipbuilding industry and the banking sector. If it is still possible to come to terms with individual sanctions, then the blow to the banking sector can be tangible. Sberbank and VTB Biden, of course, are not able to close, but it is quite capable of blocking transactions in dollars - for this it is only necessary to add them to the toxic SDN (Specially Designated Nationals List) list.

This option is quite probable and, which is especially important, has long been considered by Russian analysts. At the beginning of 2019, the Bank of Russia, according to Forbes calculations, had accumulated 390 tons of dollar cash, which amounted to more than 31 billion. The problem is that by this period the Russians kept $ 90,4 billion in foreign currency deposits. In the case of a ban on transactions and with a massive closure of deposits by the population, the shortage would simply not be taken from where. Now there is no open information from the Central Bank on the account of real foreign exchange savings for a "rainy day", which causes some concern. This can be perceived as hiding information from the analysts of the US "hawks", or as a disguise of the remaining shortage from depositors. Be that as it may, Trump managed to block the launch of the DETER and DASKA projects until recently. Now all the cards are in the hands of Biden and the Democratic Congress.

Winter Is Coming


By the age of 77, Joseph Biden had accumulated a bunch of inclinations and preferences, many of which can indirectly influence Russia. First of all, everyone is waiting for a thaw in relations with China. In this regard, the new president is the complete opposite of Trump, who almost sympathized with Putin, but hated Xi Jingping. The normalization of American ties with Beijing is not at all into Moscow's hands - this may, in turn, lead to a cooling of Russia's contacts with China. Biden's special relationship with Ukraine is also potentially negative. First, the United States will continue to put pressure on Nord Stream 2 and thereby increase the role of transit countries for Russian gas. Secondly, the new administration may decide to supply Kiev with a lethal weapons... Experience shows that the presence of hotbeds of tension along Russia's borders has a very bad effect on the exchange rate of the national currency, which cannot but rejoice Biden's hawks.


Another "feature" of the democrat-president is the energy-friendly environment. Biden plans to invest $ 2035 trillion to move to clean energy by 2050. And by XNUMX, the plans are to move to zero emissions. The president will not see the results of his "green revolution", but he is quite capable of upsetting the established balance. First of all, the world oil production with oil refining will suffer, and Russia will be one of the first to incur losses.

According to some experts, Biden will demand from OPEC to lower prices, threatening to lift sanctions from Iran and Venezuela. When these two players fully enter the oil market, the current $ 40 per barrel will seem like heavenly manna. However, here Biden has an option to play around, dump oil quotes and devalue the achievements of his own "green revolution". When hydrocarbon fuels cost mere kopecks, few will dare to switch to expensive renewable resources. The president's trump card may be a specific carbon tax (Biden's initiative), which increases the costs of producing countries. However, it is not known how the Gulf countries, friendly to the United States, will view this.

In this situation, Russia does not have many choices. We don't sell to Americans so much, but we buy enough. Moreover, some products are unique, and at first there will be nothing to replace them. For example, biotechnological products that neither China nor Europe can offer us. At the same time, since 2018, there has been a law on counter-sanctions on the part of Russia (it has not yet been enacted). One of the variants of this project considered restrictions on the export of rare earth metals from Russia to the United States, an embargo on the import of pharmaceutical products, a ban on hiring foreign workers, an increase in payments for American and European airlines for flights over Russian territory, as well as stopping the export of titanium to the United States.

It seems that the outcome of resolving this confrontation is now in the head of Joseph Biden - unfortunately, the strategic initiative is now on the American side. Hopefully, the potential of Moscow's asymmetric responses will impress the authors of the notorious "sanctions from hell."

    So it seems that they have not yet decided who in the next 4 years will crap in our entrances and raise taxes for us - Trumpamps or e-Baydn? Or has someone already decided? Chuchu who Chigrakov, already need to remake the song in "Baydnom will be", or isho not?

            As for the people, they asked him (the American) if he understood Trump. Although one should ask those 243 deaths from coronavirus in the United States due to Trump's ill-considered policies.
            The survivors answered quite clearly, giving Biden their 5,3 million living votes plus.
            The electoral votes will be sorted out, Arizona has already sorted out.

And yes, about the survivors - everything is still ahead, if the congress knocks its heels in the chest about "satellite v" and makes vassals knock in gamerope.

          Because this is Russian truth and does not work in the United States. If you look at the next 20-30 years of events, it turns out that in the United States, after a fight, you can very much even wave your fists, and quite effectively. In 2000, Bush Jr. became president by court order. We will not remember the Olympic Games by nightfall. When a state skater finished in fifth place, but due to good legal support, he got a medal. Then another anecdote appeared that instead of a national team of athletes, it was better for the States to immediately send a national team of lawyers. So anything can be.

          Although, IMHO, looking at what is happening in the United States, Trump should have accused his opponents of attempting to illegally seize power, introduce an emergency, attract the National Guard and pack them in full force somewhere in Guantanamo.

      It's not evening yet, it's not evening yet ... (c) It's too early to recognize the mummy as the President. The courts are still under Trump, and decisions on key states have not yet been made.
      But in fact, it does not matter who will be the nominal leader, both domestic and foreign policy will be determined by the same persons as before.

      A little off the point, but also on the case, for example, Biden is 78 years old, Trump is 74 ... The Senate, if you count by the average, will probably also go deep beyond 60 ... - in short, the Politburo of the late Brezhnev! About which then wrote in the American press: "Kremlin gerontocrats have a sclerotic finger on the trigger ..." We boldly replace the word "Kremlin" with "Washington" and voila - the realities of today, and the real realities, not propaganda! laughing

        In principle, neither Biden nor Trump are able to pursue their personal policies, just as the congressmen carry out the actions to which they are directed by the circles that financed their election. With the change in the names of the presidents, the tactics of our confrontation may partly change, but the strategy is determined by those who are not on TV. We don't even know all of them by name. It is possible that the insanity of the deep state is much more terrifying than the visible part of American gerontocracy.

          I have always argued that the United States is not a state in the classical sense, but a mego corporation, therefore it is controlled by those who hold a controlling stake, and not by those who perform the role of CEO. 2 parties, these are 2 organized crime groups fighting every 4 years for the right to put a "roof"!
          Somehow, one fellow by the name of Kennedy wanted to "own everything," on the FRS, the local common fund wanted to lay a paw, then the kids from one organized criminal group, who were roofing the White House at that moment, made him brainwash the leather interior of the limousine

                Colleagues in the comments above have competently referred to the American Deep State. However, other participants in the discussion may not know what this concept means and what an important role it plays in the life of America and, in fact, the whole world.

                For those who are not in the know, I will explain so that there is an understanding of what was mentioned above. For example, there is the Pentagon, or some other smaller military department, and there are many of them. Or some industrial corporation, there are also many of them. There is also a closed club for employees in each such establishment. Somewhere in a quiet place. But the club includes everyone "who deserves it" - high-ranking military men, businessmen, industrialists, congressmen, senators, owners of large media outlets, bankers, and others. That is, the monetary and political strata of society. They gather in such a club, ostensibly to take a break from their arduous affairs, but it is there, in an informal setting, that important political issues are jointly resolved, important negotiations on business projects are being conducted, and decisions are being developed that affect the politics of the whole world. And then the results of such fights are formalized in the form of state laws and even the opinion of the White House.
                And if there was only one such club, there would be many. Every serious politician, military man or industrial representative is a member of several clubs. Moving from one to another, club members work out common decisions at their parties, and the population can only believe that the Congress or the Senate worked out these decisions at their official meetings. And when we hear about lobbying, we think: how is it carried out? Are bags of money being dragged into Congress or the Senate? Do lobbyists open secret accounts to politicians? No, it is in the form of contributions to any charitable foundations, one of the organizers of which are politicians or their relatives, or friends, but these funds are managed by dummies. And, as you know, the lion's share of the contribution to any fund goes into the pockets of the true owners of the fund, they know how to draw up this. Therefore, there are a great many funds in America, as well as closed-type clubs, and the "skid" in the form of cash to a politician or a secret contribution to his account is a bribe, fraught with scandal and trial. Everything is done through charitable foundations. And the main thing in all this fuss is the joint development of a decision by politicians, the military and business outside the walls of the Congress and the Senate. A congressman or a senator comes to these walls with a ready-made decision on a particular issue.
                These numerous closed clubs are the system that governs the state.
                Permeating all of American life, the activities of closed clubs are not visible to the common man in the street. Only sometimes, thanks to the sly paparazzi, he can notice a party attended by some celebrities, but he will never know what actually happened there. And more often he does not even know that someone "great and terrible" has visited some quiet closed club. It's like grass and its roots. The grass is visible, but the roots are not visible, they are in the depths of the earth. Therefore, the system of closed clubs, which in fact controls the life of the country, is called the deep state. It is hidden from the eyes of the average man.
                That is, this is not the Bilderberg Club at all, it is a powerful, widely ramified root system. Trump thrust a shovel into her.

                  It is, but even these are not the main decision makers. The military, financiers, media tycoons are still interested in income, capital gain, financial and political. Hard workers, in a way. There is an even deeper power, which is already rooted in finance and power as such. With the temporary departure of a competitor, the socialist bloc, their ability to control world processes became unlimited, through the machine of cut colored paper.

                  Lyudmila Yakovlevna, in general, everything was noted correctly. But I will add a little from myself. The concept of "deep" came to us from the IT sphere, where it meant, first of all, the basic mechanisms that form a system that is used by a wide segment of users, but which at the same time have neither the capabilities nor the appropriate qualifications to influence these mechanisms. Indeed, we all know how to use the tools of a ready-made operating system (be it Linux or Windows), but only a few are free to navigate in DOS, and a very small number have ideas about binary code, i.e. about the things that underlie any operating system.

                  With the advent of the Internet in our life and its establishment as one of the main channels of communication, the concept of "deep" also transformed (more precisely, it acquired another definition). Now, on the contrary, it began to be understood as a wide user community, which forms a moral and ethical assessment of materials published on the network, but at the same time remains anonymous. Something like local minus musicians who, by tacit agreement, support some authors and actively put pressure on others.

                  When applied to politics, the concept of "deep" was superimposed on two terms at once: "behind the scenes agreements" and "informal institutions." In essence, both of these mean approximately the same thing, with the only difference that "behind the scenes agreements" by and large represent the process itself and its results, while "informal institutions" are already a higher degree of organization of this process. That is why “behind-the-scenes agreements” can be both interpersonal and intersubjective, while informal institutions are always subject-object relations. It is noteworthy that even in this case, individual personalities can act in interactions, but already in the role of "authorized representatives" of informal organizations that have delegated the appropriate powers to them, and not as independent subjects of the political process. However, in both cases we are dealing with manifestations of the non-public sphere of decision-making, the resolutions of which are reflected in the official bodies of power and are imperative for the entire population.

                  Strictly speaking, given such an extensive terminological toolkit, it is necessary to introduce new concepts in the form of a "deep state", etc. no, and therefore their use has been tested as nothing more than a tribute to modern trends, designed to put a certain veil of mystery on a number of quite ordinary processes. The same backstage agreements have always existed, but for some reason no one talks about the existence of a deep state in the Roman Empire, although even then, within the walls of baths and brothels, many decisions were made that influenced the life of the Empire as a whole.

                    Frankly, I somehow did not think about the existence of the second form of the deep state as an informal association of ordinary citizens via the Internet. But although the deep state, which directly shapes politics and the economy, is able to control and limit the deep state of ordinary citizens, to introduce its own bots into it, you can't outweigh everyone, can you?)))

      Not a very good situation ...
      One of the versions of this project considered restrictions on the export of rare earth metals from Russia to the United States, an embargo on the import of pharmaceutical products, a ban on the attraction of foreign workers, an increase in payments for American and European airlines for flights over Russian territory, as well as a halt to the export of titanium to the United States.

      1. Rare earth metals, and who will buy them then? The enterprises will have to be stopped until a new market is found.
      2. Embargo on the import of pharmaceutical products. This is a joke? Sick people where? Should they pay with their lives for someone's trampled pride?
      3. Ban on the attraction of foreign workers. Well, that's it, the Americans will stop sweeping the streets and work at construction sites. Everyone will be dumped back into their beggars USA.
      4. Increase in payments for American and European airlines for flights over Russian territory. Aeroflot, which takes this money for itself, will stop flying and die. Well, there will be an answer.
      5. Can't you export titanium? VSPMO Visma has a powerful income from the supply of not only raw materials but also finished products to the same Boeing. Who will support the company?

      No need a smarter approach. Something needs to be done, our economy is being systematically stifled.

        1) If friendship with China is chewing gum, then the share of Russian rare earths is minimal. And mostly situational - that is, it is more convenient for the customer to work with a Russian supplier.

        5) VSPMO has 70% of production export. And in Russia so much titanium is simply not needed.
        The corporation recalled that it produces a third of the world's titanium for the aviation industry and 70% of products are sent to the world market.

        “More than 30 years of partnership with the world's leading aircraft manufacturers and an excellent business reputation of the corporation have made it an integral and significant part of the global economy. Disruption of cooperation ties, unfulfilled business obligations can for a long time, if not forever, pull our company out of the dynamically developing titanium market. In addition, over 20 employees in the Urals region will find themselves in a crisis situation", - the message says.

    Why Trump is convenient? Because he says that he will get along with Russia, but the State Department and the Pentagon did the opposite? It is not the president who leads the policy there, but the elite divided by two parties. Give them a reason, they will devour Russia and not choke. Alexander III was right. Russia has only two allies - army and navy.

    But when all sorts of bills and penthouses of wives, daughters and "nieces" go under the sanctions, there will be a stir. The legion of "Russian" Benders will aggressively persuade the political leadership of the Russian Federation to surrender.

    Well, the author began in the spirit of "The Diary of a Madman" by Nikolai Gogol - on congratulations or not congratulations from Mr Putin to everyone in the United States, it was completely purple, but then he described the possible sanctions well. Only the order of their real significance is different
    1) Sanctions against persons from the Cooperative Lake and, in general, limiting all the purses of Putin and others. This is the most painful. It is clear that most of them are registered as dummies and the nephew's mother-in-law, but you can still find them. And then, how and why should they live after that? It was in vain that they worked so patriotically in the field of stealing these assets.
    2) A further collapse of oil prices will be extremely difficult, the modern Russian Federation will not withstand prices of $ 20 even within 2 years and no Rosgvardia will save it here. But this is not so easy to do, there are many factors and for the sake of the Russian Federation no one will strain so much.
    3) Sectoral sanctions. There will be no special problems here. Well, another dollar will rise, prices will rise, the economy will fall. But for the authorities this is not a special problem. As long as there is money for Rosgvardia, manipulators from TV and Rosstat and the minimum loyalty of the regions, they will keep the situation.
    They will say that the time is difficult, military, we must rally in front of unprecedented external pressure and support the patriots.
    P / S. But so far, Biden is not at all up to the Russian Federation. There are problems that are much more important: first, we must win while Trump still resists and although he has not many chances America still comes out of these elections in a split form, then we need to somehow consolidate it and begin to deal with Trump's legacy, coronavirus PRC and issues of two economic partnerships. It's hard to say when Biden will get his hands on the Russian Federation.

      Further collapse of oil prices will be extremely difficult


      A few months ago, a Royal Duch Shell report came out which said the oil era was over. Yes, only here they laughed at me ... and in the meantime:

      Several large car companies have stopped projects for new diesel engines.
      England, France and several other countries from 2030 ban the sale of cars with internal combustion engines. Germany decides from the 30th or from the 35th.
      In some places in Scandinavia, everything is worse - and in general, from 2025 they will not sell cars either on gasoline or on diesel.

      So in Europe the trend is clear. The fuel is changing. Hydrogen, electricity ...
      And yes - the money allocated for green energy is simply huge, and this is a central topic in the new EU budget.

    One of the variants of this project considered restrictions on the export of rare earth metals from Russia to the United States, an embargo on the import of pharmaceutical products, a ban on the attraction of foreign workers, an increase in payments for American and European airlines for flights over Russian territory, as well as a halt to the export of titanium to the United States. ...

    China is the leader in the extraction and export of rare earth metals, to close the road to imported medicines, but we do not produce our own (what will we replace?), The increase in fares for flights for airlines is ridiculous (because it is passengers who will suffer first of all), but titanium is mined not only in Russia (South Africa, Canada, India and Norway may well satisfy the US demands for this metal).
    The time has come when 30 years of industrial and scientific stagnation led to a sad result - there is nothing special to put pressure on the United States ... unfortunately ...

      They probably mined or can get it, but there is a problem in some kind of titanium processing. An enterprise that can handle it somehow exists only in Russia. Of course, I could be wrong, but as far as I know myself. Our enterprise (avsmpo) also seems to have big problems now, but it still exists and works a little.

    well, titanium is mined not only in Russia (South Africa, Canada, India and Norway may well satisfy the demands of the United States in this metal).

    You forgot to mention our closest partner in the CIS - in the East Kazakhstan region, the Ust-Kamenogorsk Titanium-Magnesium Plant, which supplies not only titanium "sponge", but also titanium ingots ... and if Russian TMK refuses to supply "titanium" for " our partners behind a puddle ", the volume will increase, incl. and our allied friend and comrade in the CIS - RK.
    Everything is interconnected, and with our liberals in power, headed by a guarantor and an oligarchic plowman in managing the economy, we can only be outside observers as the Russian economy continues to fall into the abyss with great speed. Nobody and nothing can change the situation in Russia for the better.
    And the kremlebots (patriots "sufferers" for the Motherland) rely on the army and the navy !? It's funny, however. At the moment and in the coming years, "the salvation of drowning in the hands of the drowning themselves" is impossible a priori, the "Cooperative" did not have a lake, it is not worth and will not have the task of making Russia a self-sufficient state, there simply cannot be such a task.
    And, in general, I think that our friends "the army and the navy" are performing only the task of preserving and increasing the assets of the Kremlin Pahanat under the patriotic slogan of defending the Motherland.

    This is the main answer to all, PEOPLE, high inmates. Since the 90s, smart people, politicians, analysts, experts have been talking and talking about the need to develop their own economy as quickly and efficiently as possible. It was not done, stupidly, stupidly looked at the ass of the West. Although there is a historical example before your eyes, STALIN during the period from 1928 the beginning of INDUSTRIALIZATION to 1940 raised the industry and brought the country to the 2nd PLACE in the world. Until we raise the economy qualitatively, we will continue to rake in various sanctions. If the economy was developed in all spheres and directions, it could be put on sanctions, a threaded bolt. Given that the country possesses from 30 to 40 %% of the world's natural resources, this is how you need to be NOT a PROFESSIONAL in order to develop your economy with such advantages that they impose sanctions that harm the country. China has turned its country upside down in 30 years, and we are moving towards degradation, starting with EBNts. A financial and oligarchic capitalism, cynical, thieving, corrupt, was created, but they had to create a socially just state, it turns out NORTHERE PEOPLE, NORTHE DIRECTION OF DEVELOPMENT.

    Biden in 1972/3 became the first senator at the age of 30. Having lost his wife and daughter in an accident
    and while in the hospital with the surviving boys, he abandoned the oath procedure.
    The party organized that he took the oath, without leaving the children - in the hospital! What's wrong
    was it valuable to the Democrats in Biden in 1973? Further, throughout his career
    Biden rushed into the race for the presidency THREE TIMES, the last result -
    vice-president of the country TWO terms. What's so valuable to the Democrats in Biden in 2014?
    And the main question - is Biden a fighter or a brat? If he spat and said I've had enough
    I'm tired, I'm old- You would say yourself - not a fighter, a slob. Biden stubbornly walked for many years
    to the goal of life - AND WIN! He became PRESIDENT! Are you 77? Until even at 107!

    Instead of building a strong and independent state, the officials and presidents of Russia were engaged in personal enrichment, destroying all the potential left over from the USSR. And now they are surprised. For example, I used to have a very positive attitude towards Russia, but after Putin supported and supports Lukashenko (who lost the elections), I consider Russia to be nothing more than a trading partner. At the same time, Russia continues to actively interfere in the affairs of Belarus, trying to lend a shoulder to the falling Lukashenka. Therefore, the sanctions will not be superfluous. Maybe the people of Russia will quickly understand that its leaders think only of themselves.

    We, of course, cannot ourselves threaten with US sanctions. But it is possible through the UN Security Council to warn them and begin work on Russia's withdrawal from all sanctions regimes and treaties, in particular "on the non-proliferation of missile technologies ..." and begin cooperation with China, Iran and the DPRK on their work on ICBMs. It will threaten us less risks than the Yankees.

    Apologies for interfering in your sandbox, but the first States are currently much stronger than the Russian Federation, even if we do not take into account the natural and purchased allies. And if desired, the sanctions will be painful. The Russian Federation has nothing to say, although there was time and TD. Well, while the second after any sane Western leader will do a lot so that the successor of the Great could not achieve at least what it was. Therefore, sanctions and the like have been and will be. The Russian Federation needs to develop, let's say, average opportunities for self-sufficiency. Only after that, it can lay down on most of the rest of the world players, but considering that very many, leaders ,, have assets over the hill ... You understand. ((
