American diplomat: Russia needs to pay a high price for closing the Kerch Strait

96

The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation has repeatedly stated that the closure of three areas of the Black Sea in the territorial waters of Russia does not imply the closure of the Kerch Strait. But foreign insinuations on this topic continue. Without listening or trying to hear what Moscow is saying, various politicians and political scientists in the West are already discussing "how to punish Russia for closing the Kerch Strait." Among them was one of the famous Russophobes, John Herbst, who at one time worked as the US Ambassador to Kiev.


Not paying attention to the fact that the ships continue to calmly pass through the Kerch Strait, the American diplomat has already come up with a "version of Moscow's punishment."

According to Mr. Herbst, "in response, the United States, Britain, Canada and the European Union should close their ports to Russian ships." This statement was made by Herbst during an online conference on the "security of Ukraine."

Former US Ambassador to Ukraine:

We must collectively force Russia to pay a high price for the escalation in the Black and Azov Seas. Moscow needs to be shown that it tolerates a high level of pressure on Ukraine in these waters.

According to the American diplomat, the more actively the United States and partners react, the less chances Moscow will have to put pressure on Kiev.

For obvious reasons, during the online conference, there was no one who would demonstrate to the ex-ambassador the data of any portal that monitors sea traffic.



Herbst had an excellent opportunity to make sure that ships (including Ukrainian merchant ships) were sailing in the Black Sea, as well as through the Kerch Strait, and continue to go. Or would Herbst, for some reason, want to send commercial ships and warships to precisely those areas where the Russian Defense Ministry limited shipping until October?

      Recently Baranets suggested: What are we waiting for? How long can we postpone the resolution of the military-political crisis when NATO and US troops surrounded us along the borders and put pressure on us with sanctions? Where are the Iskanders in Cuba and Venezuela? Where is the demonstrative rejection of nuclear tests with a nuclear explosion test on Novaya Zemlya, for example?

            "Agreement between the Russian Federation and Ukraine on cooperation in the use of the Sea of ​​Azov and the Kerch Strait" 2003
            "Article 1
            The Sea of ​​Azov and the Kerch Strait have historically been the inland waters of the Russian Federation and Ukraine.
            The Sea of ​​Azov is delimited by the state border line in accordance with the agreement between the Parties.
            Settlement of issues related to the water area of ​​the Kerch Strait is carried out by agreement between the Parties.

            Article 2
            1. Merchant ships and warships, as well as other state ships flying the flag of the Russian Federation or Ukraine, operated for non-commercial purposes, enjoy freedom of navigation in the Sea of ​​Azov and the Kerch Strait.
            2. Merchant ships under the flags of third states may enter the Sea of ​​Azov and pass through the Kerch Strait if they are sent to or returned from a Russian or Ukrainian port.
            3. Warships and other state ships of third countries, operated for non-commercial purposes, may enter the Sea of ​​Azov and pass through the Kerch Strait if they are sent on a visit or a business call to the port of one of the Parties at its invitation or permission agreed with the other Party . "
            Question: Is the contract canceled? - No. Then why can't Ukraine conduct its ships to the Sea of ​​Azov and back?

      ... We spent many billions of dollars on bringing Yeltsin to power, but they paid off with interest, we knocked out the competitor-Russia and for negligible prices pumped out from Russia 20 thousand tons of copper, 15 thousand tons of aluminum, 2 thousand tons. cesium, beryllium, strontium and more.

      And he needs it, "make sure"? You can't prove anything to a Russophobe, just for the stable.

      Yes. Besides them, we have someone in the world to talk to. yes
      Not to mention that our domestic politics and tasks are much more interesting than dogging with these geopolitical pygmies.

    USA are scammers. Like tradesmen in the bazaar. As if there is some kind of warehouse in the Russian Federation where the Kuriles, the Kerch Strait, Kaliningrad lie, the list goes on. So they are gundos, they say, give us the Kerch Strait, otherwise you will pay a high price. I would call the United States not so much as an unfriendly state. Rather they professional neighborswho, by their behavior, want to force the Russian Federation to give them their living space.

    American diplomat: Russia needs to pay a high price for closing the Kerch Strait
    ... Closed, not closed, it does not matter to them what to cling to.
    They will shit wherever they get.
    The striped authorities are the enemy, across the board.
    I hope we finally came to this understanding.

    close their ports for Russian ships. " Herbst made such a statement during

    Worst of all, even the highest-level American politicians, apparently, were brought up on Hollywood action films - every day, they are trying with all their might to bring the war closer, which, apparently, in their minds, will pass for them in the form of a parade across our territory. Apparently, realizing that the United States is starting to slide into the abyss, they are trying to drag the whole world away.
    He does not even think about the fact that Russia can block the strait for ships and then the Ukrainian Mariupol will simply lie down. And this is one of the main internal donors of the ukrobudget. Nor does he think about the fact that Russia can declare exercises on the NSR in response .... that's how it pulls them in the direction of war.
    By the way, given that the United States is seriously hooked on Russian liquefied gas, how will it solve this problem? Or - "is it different" and getting to America our gas automatically turns from aggressive to democratic?

    In short, we ourselves have not yet reached the point that we are great powers and should not live by the rules that were written by others and certainly not for our benefit.
    There are also commercial cases, different, many, where would it be without them.

    I agree with the idea of ​​tackling the issues of free passage of channels. And you need to start with the Panama Canal. Remove all 12 US naval bases from this country and ensure the possibility of a referendum on Panama's self-determination after the country is removed from state control. bully

    We must collectively make Russia pay a high price

    This is how it usually happens in our entire history .. In the 90s, the drunken EBN already paid for everything (territories, money, political concessions, etc.) They almost choked with blood and in fact were already on the verge of collapse ..
    What does the West want from us again? No specific requirements, but the persecution is intensifying .. What do they want to see instead of Russia?
    Yes, we already understood, watching our Liebers .. They need SMUTE and so that even the word Russia is not mentioned anywhere ..
    Well, let's see who and what will remain in the world?
