Military Review

The US State Department called the counter-sanctions imposed by Russia "escalation" and promised a response

160

The United States reserves the right to respond to Russian-imposed restrictive measures against the United States. This was stated by a representative of the US State Department.


Washington did not like the Russian counter-sanctions, the introduction of which the Russian Foreign Ministry announced yesterday, April 16. The State Department has already said that they "lead to escalation" and expressed regret over Moscow's actions.

The Americans are convinced that the sanctions imposed by the United States were consistent with Russia's "harmful actions" and were applied correctly, but the subsequent retaliatory measures from Russia, as follows from their statements, were "clearly superfluous" and should not have been. In other words, in Washington they are perplexed, but what is their reason?

Our recent actions have been proportionate and appropriate. (...) we reserve the right to respond to any retaliatory Russian measures

- said in a statement by the State Department.

Recall that on the eve of Moscow introduced counter-sanctions against the United States. This time, the Kremlin did not wait long, and the answer came out quickly and, what is important, productive. To the "mirror" actions of expelling exactly the same number of American diplomats, Moscow added the expulsion of US Ambassador John Sullivan, who was advised to "go to Washington for consultations."

In addition, the Russian authorities have banned eight high-ranking members of the administration of the incumbent President Joe Biden from entering Russia, banned the hiring of Russian and third-country nationals in American diplomatic missions, and also intend to terminate the work of American funds "interfering in Russian politics."

      Bans on hiring at the embassy and "other joys" had to be adopted immediately as soon as the Negroid barrack accepted the first sanctions against Russia! Now it is necessary to expel five more diplomats from the United States on a preemptive basis, this may discourage them that Russia is able to act, and not just speak.

                The impudence of the State Department is boundless and eternal! "The Americans are convinced that the sanctions imposed by the United States were consistent with Russia's 'harmful actions' and were applied correctly, but the subsequent retaliatory measures from Russia, as follows from their statements, were 'clearly superfluous', they should not have been."
                And it is great that the Russian authorities, discarding illusions, began to respond adequately!

        That is, as I understand it, now the snow in the courtyard of the embassy will be cleaned by an American janitor, an American plumber will be cleaning the sewers, and an American woman will be doing paperwork on issuing visas. I wonder if the blacks will be invited? How does BLM feel about this? After all, in terrible Russia it is cold in winter - the negroes do not deserve this. It is also impossible now to hire plumbers from third countries, and that would be wise, otherwise, I can imagine how much excitement for the right to take the position of a plumber and a sewer in the American embassy in Moscow would rise in Ukraine. Still would!

              But with the cleaning of toilets, everything will be different. To rescue democracy, fearing counterintelligence, having deceived the enemy cordons, a savior, a major of the SBU, will enter the embassy building. For his feat, he will receive gratitude personally from Zelensky. And on behalf of the President of the United States, he will be awarded the highest award, the Congressional Medal of Honor. Zelenskiy will demand immediate NATO membership. Boring girls!

              Maybe I shouldn't be like that? in fact, in my life I had to deal with blacks - I can not say anything bad about them. Most likely, my current attitude occurs because I see how they (blacks) are imposed, sort of like writing a synopsis for a seminar in Soviet times. In our hostel there lived a Negro named Wanzugu. He was respected in our company, because he could distinguish between ports, in the present-day, "brands" 777 and 33. Moreover, he did not want to take 33 in his mouth, but he loved 777. Such was the esthete.

                No wonder, colleague, don't worry! I ran into one in Soviet times, standing in line for another "deficit". So the Negro I gently pulled from the queue (I was standing with his back to the audience, I thought that my friend went))), and he stood in my place. He had to popularly explain that it was not worth doing this, but a persistent prejudice against them remained. Then they had to hurry to hide from the police - foreigners were strongly protected at that time.

          I went into the yard. There are no people.
          Suddenly a stern cop: "Don't spoil the fence!"
          The American is a little alive:
          "I need och'en, och'en pissat!"
          "Let's pass," the guard replied.
          Here is a big house. Around everything is clean.
          Looks like janitors are throwing here!

          "Here, - he says. - Write here!"

            BUT a third of Russians work at the UN and have nothing to do with the embassy.

          So that the money earned in Russia remains in Russia. This applies not only to the bourgeois, but also to ordinary citizens who annually take out about 30 billion rubles on vacation and to Turkey, a NATO member country, who dream of destroying us. Many are worried about Donbass (and I am the same), but Turkey supplies UAVs to Ukraine, which were also built at the expense of our tourists ...

          The more Putin "quarrels" with the West, the more the West imposes sanctions against our bourgeois at home, the more our bourgeois understands that it is better to keep money at home. The more money there is in our economy, the better we all will live.

In general Boris .. what are you naive ..
            And yes .. the interests of Russia, they are that the citizens of the country would feel protected and happy in this country .. and proud of the Motherland .. Do you think the citizens feel that way? Just do not take those 5-8% who are at the trough .. The country does not produce anything on its own .. they only pump out resources, rip off people with taxes, fines and all kinds of extortions .. as a result, the population is decreasing at a record pace .. Is not this an indicator, not their main indicator activities .. when people do not want to multiply and live significantly less than the officially drawn numbers ... when optimizers have optimized everything to death ..

                To do this, the state must create conditions for recreation in its own country at affordable prices .. and now, as Turkey was closed by 50%, the holiday in Sochi has risen in price .. taking into account the sharp drop in income, it is difficult to make a choice in favor of rest in its own country .. The state is absolutely stupid policy towards their own people and at the same time trying to play on patriotic feelings in order to get even more into the pockets of their own citizens and make money on them ..

              When an ambassador is made clear that he needs to go home for a consultation, he has three options.
              The first is to swallow the resentment and stay on the principle, thereby drastically lowering the authority of your country. Of course, the FMS in the Presnensky District of Moscow will not come to expel him from the country, but it looks like a glove thrown in his face, which he silently picked up, wiped off and pretended that nothing had happened.
              The second is to gather in silence and leave the country in English.
              The third is to leave the country beautifully. Make a declaration of love for this country and people and express regret. Well, how beautifully it was done by us - the invitation of the GDP of the children of diplomats to the Christmas tree together with their expulsion on New Year's Eve.

              As I understand you, you would have acted in the ambassador's place for the first option?

                  Those in power will swallow dust, as Putin VV prophesied to them, if there is a choice between the interests of the Russian state and some kind of real estate. Duma members reported no more, 50 have real estate abroad. If there are dollars, those who want to study abroad, the West loses their minds. Give an example. when a child was expelled, a sanctioned official from a western university. A person made a career in government, he can provide him with any education. What kind of black envy you have for successful Russian people, they will find where to spend their money without you. What problems do you have in Israel. no, I don't have it in Russia. And you in Israel have a Russian-language website to teach your school of slander

            He can sit here quietly. They just won't turn to him, they won't invite him anywhere, ignore him. And then he will have problems with work.

            There are categories of people who do not understand hints. :) Often these are people associated with trade - professional deformation, or people who consider themselves "above this" - people with hypertrophied ego. For commercial affairs (aggressive), a self-confident person is initially suitable, since he has no doubts about the correctness of his actions. The Americans are a trading people and they need to explain everything in a popular way, otherwise they will not understand. In principle, I admit that they cannot understand exactly, but can only calculate

    As schoolchildren of elementary grades - did you give me a shalban ?! I'll knock you one shalban too! And yet! And if you knock on me again, I'll knock you two! ... Expulsion of diplomats is all that Russia can now. Since we have nothing else to painfully hurt the United States. When Putin has been told for 10 years in a row - fight corruption, with embezzlers and werewolves in uniform, fight for real, and not for show - he did not hear. He played his games, trying to raise Russia's prestige in the West with the help of expensive Olympics, economic summits, disaster relief and other things that the West did not appreciate and was quickly forgotten. Even rocket engines have been riveted to this day for the United States. Meanwhile, inside the country, corruption and thieves, officials continued to rob the budget and hinder the development of the economy. Plus, the sanctions are making themselves felt. And in the end, we came to the conclusion that despite the obvious success in the export of certain goods, such as food, grain, the Russians did not feel anything from this. Oil, gas, timber and so on - the profit from them goes to the budget, to the companies themselves and to the pockets of the oligarchs in this industry. The people do not see it, but they see rising fuel prices at gas stations. The pandemic also did its disastrous job in 2020, and now it is still pressing. And with this whole soup set - a weak economy, wild corruption, thieves by officials, dissatisfied people - Russia decided to enter into an economic confrontation with the United States ... Naturally, the State Department welcomes this, and counts on it. The US plans include an arms race and an economic blockade, which destroyed and ruined at one time such a giant as the USSR. Of course, Russia is not the USSR now, but the population, the youth of Russia is not Soviet, already spoiled by Western pranks and values. In addition to a weak economy, corruption and theft of officials, our young people are also a weak link in the confrontation with the United States. A generation of YouTube tick-tokers who crave fame and money with the help of antics and antics on videos on social networks, and do not really want to work for the good of the country - this is the worst thing that could be taken from the West as an example ... I do not understand the abruptly changed tone of our diplomats and politicians, who have endured sanctions and humiliation for 7 years from the United States and its vassals, from Ukraine, Turkey, etc. And now, when everything is far from good in the country, they suddenly woke up and decided to give at least some kind of rebuff. Is it possible that the understanding that the population is really dissatisfied with the government, theft, corruption, rising prices and low salaries (in the regions, because Moscow is already a separate state institution with its own salaries) - all this finally reached the Kremlin, and they resorted to their favorite method of mitigation the anger of the people is to switch its attention to an external enemy, to a call to unite around the beloved leader, to give battle to the overseas hegemon and naturally suffer economic problems. Tighten the belts ... On the one hand, everything seems to be true. But as I wrote in the beginning, the Kremlin had at least 10 years to actually cleanse its ranks of thieves, officials, corruptionists and other enemies inside the country. But in this, only an appearance was made with single landings for show. The country was plundered. And now, when forces are needed to confront the United States, they are not. Because there is no place to get it. For 10 years, hundreds of stolen billions of dollars have flowed abroad. Late. It remains only to angrily bang on the table with his fist and arm the National Guard.

    For a correct understanding of the situation.
    1. The number of diplomats. In fact, we have a diplomatic corps representing the interests of the Russian Federation in the United States - 300 people, and the striped ones - 455 people. Only when we add our representatives to the UN in the amount of 155 people (Nebenzya and the team), we get 455. So I would not talk about parity.
    2. Compared to 86 (when the striped workers were deprived of Soviet workers), we acted more thoughtfully (the ban applies to third parties). Then the Americans hired workers from the Philippine Embassy - because "it is not a matter of washing urinals." quit.
    Our Foreign Ministry answered well. Especially with regard to the curtailment of NGOs - we do not need "striped freedoms". They have racism in their country against non-black people and heterosexuals.
    Society is changing a lot.

    Why do we need this? Get out, you nasty ones.

        I am not afraid that, personally, it will become worse and harder for us if our leadership is able to defend the interests of the STATE !!!
        For a long time already, it hurt me for POWERING!
        You can survive, overcome everything when everyone is together! But somehow it is hard to believe that our fat belly are ready to lose something when the "honor of the family" is at stake.
        In general, let's wait and see!

    "" If our "exchanges of courtesies" continue, then we will ask the Americans to bring the number of their diplomats who are involved in bilateral relations in Russia in line with the number of our employees working in the embassy and two consulates general (in the US - Ed. ) ", - he specified."
    Unfortunately, this is only if they continue. And so - everything is the same.
    "... on duty - for short-term business trips. And by doing so, they significantly - two or even more times - strengthen their ability to work in the Russian Federation, whose goals are not always plausible. We know this well."

    Yes, take all our diplomats out of the AI ​​and that's it. Leave a minimum amount at the UN and that's it. and send them all home.
    And we don't need so many ambassadors in Europe. Leave one in the European Union who represents. One dog on their part, not a single issue is resolved without looking back at the EU. The consuls will cope with the rest of the tasks.

    and also intend to stop the work of American funds "interfering in Russian politics."


    These funds and NGOs should have been closed a long time ago, there are no Russian funds on the territory of the United States ...

    Well that's right, only exceptional sanctions can be imposed. And when sanctions are introduced against the exceptional, it is escalation.

    RadioSvoyoda on Facebook, 16.04.2021/21.00/20 at XNUMX:XNUMX published the following notice: "" Putin is moving troops, exhausted, straining to secure a negotiating position. It was enough for Biden to call and immediately give a slap in the face. The effect is exactly the same. What is the difference between the primitive Kremlin policy with its decisions of the mid-XNUMXth century and the American one - efficiency in terms of investment of resources is simply incomparable. "
    Social networks are commenting on the new US sanctions and Biden's speech - and thinking about how the Kremlin will respond. "
    I had to comment :)
    The answer to the pathetic body movement of the "decrepit old man", which RadioSvoboda pompously called "slap in the face". Perhaps, from such a "reciprocal mirror flick" on the foreheads of "stoned true democrats" many will not be happy. Including the "boobies-bureaucrats" from online publications.

    The one that we introduced there? "... and this is not much, but almost nothing"
    Why be offended there?
    Can't the population be recruited to work in American consulates?
    So for me personally, this is generally nonsense!
    I had no idea that such a mess was taking place! ..
    What a twist!..
    Right now, a lot more will become clear. What ordinary users did not even suspect ...

    Don't you understand that this is a specific mockery. They just scoff and do the right thing, how much you can chew snot and call them partners. We let them all down, like Ukrainians. The merchants make money and they don't care about the policy of the state.

    The US State Department called the counter-sanctions imposed by Russia "escalation" and promised a response

    Offended Amrikans laughing A trifle, but nice smile
    This means that our counter-sanctions are working on them.
