In the French press: Russia will not attack NATO countries

37

A material has been published in the French press, which examines the possible final reaction of the United States and NATO to the demands put forward by Russia and voiced by Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov. Atlantico writes that Russia has long been making statements about the unacceptability of NATO's eastward expansion, but the United States and the alliance ignored these concerns of Moscow. The French edition notes that as a result, Russia itself went to the formulation of specific requirements and proposals on security issues, including those points that were voiced in 2008 by the then President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev.


The French media indicates that the United States in this case found itself in a difficult situation. On the one hand, it is in the interests of Washington itself to limit the expansion of NATO, but on the other hand, there are promises made to partners. But the fact is that promises were made to the Soviet Union at one time, but they were repeatedly violated, now preferring to declare that Gorbachev was not given any promises of non-expansion of the North Atlantic Alliance. Therefore, they can also break the promises made to those who were promised to join the alliance. Only this will damage NATO's reputation.

A French expert from the Institute of International Relations at Atlantico notes that there is no military threat from Russia to Western Europe.

In the material:

Russia will not attack NATO countries. But it is quite possible to resort to hybrid, informational methods.

At the same time, the publication writes that Russia "could choose the ultimatum form itself, so that later it would legalize its invasion of Ukraine." The newspaper says that the new paradigm, when faced with Russian interests from Eastern Europe to the Middle East and Central Africa, takes some getting used to.

The expert points out that, by and large, neither Europe nor the United States today have effective levers to contain Russia. Local sanctions do not help, and serious restrictive measures, such as disconnecting the Russian Federation from the SWIFT system, can cause enormous damage to the collective West itself, even given the fact that Russia has managed to build its own payment systems and options for carrying out international transactions.

    ... The expert points out that, by and large, neither Europe nor the United States today have effective levers to contain Russia.


    And thank God. The West is duplicitous to the point of insanity. The West is asleep and sees how to turn us into a colony, like Ukraine. It is trying to create these levers.
    ... The EU demanded to recover 290 billion euros from Russia for damage from the import substitution policy. The corresponding appeal was sent to the WTO. Earlier, similar claims were voiced in the United States. According to experts, by doing so, Western countries want to put Russia in the trade and economic position of Ukraine. To what extent are their demands justified and what can Moscow oppose to this?

    The European Union has sent an appeal to the World Trade Organization (WTO) demanding to recover from Russia 290 billion euros for "discrimination" of European goods through the policy of import substitution. "In 2019, the cost of published tenders for Russian state-owned enterprises amounted to 23,5 trillion rubles, or about 290 billion euros, which is equivalent to about 20% of Russia's GDP," RBC quotes the WTO commentary.


    In this regard, the European Union called on Russia to lift the restrictions or bring them in line with the WTO rules. In response, the Federation Council announced that the WTO had no right to put forward such requirements and put forward their own.



    “The European Union has neither the moral nor the legal right to demand compensation from Russia for damages. If, within the framework of the policy of sanctions, they refused to supply us with products, we have the right to produce them ourselves, "RIA Novosti quotes the words of Senator Sergei Tsekov. But the West, according to the parliamentarian, must "pay Russia about a trillion dollars for the losses we have suffered because of the sanctions."


    Economist Anton Lyubich also believes that the sanctions imposed by the European side against Russia since 2014 violate WTO rules. “In order to introduce legal restrictions, a UN Security Council resolution is needed. As far as I know, there are no UN Security Council resolutions imposing sanctions on Russia, ”the expert said in an interview with the VZGLYAD newspaper.

    According to him, the European Commission unilaterally with the United States, Canada, Australia and a number of acceding countries, in violation of the WTO procedure, introduced restrictive measures against Russian goods and legal entities. And Russia's actions are of a protective and compensatory nature.

      Fake after all.
      Nobody demanded anything.
      The article was invented for incitement.

      The Ministry of Economic Development called false information that the EU demands € 290 billion from Russia
      The ministry noted that the WTO rules themselves do not imply the possibility of paying any compensation

          I was able to watch a film the other day .. "April 9" is called .. about how "valiantly" the Danish army fought .. all day long, and then I saw how many "results": 2 dead and 10 wounded Fritzes .. In fact, they these losses were entered into one film in 10 minutes .. But then we typed interviews with the participants in the battles, what great fellows they are and how hard it was for them ..

      Well, first of all, the mercenaries of NATO countries and NATO countries are still different things. And about the right to destroy ... and who is there in battle will figure out who is who, the Ukrainians even have a uniform now in the Western manner. You can distinguish between civilians and military personnel, and if they are in uniform, then no one will check anybody's documents.

      Because any variant of a definite answer is bad for them: if they agree, they will lose face; if they disagree, this very face will bury its back, because Russia will turn its face to China.

      I wondered many times - why ?! How did it happen that in the 90s the West loosened its grip? After all, under EBeeN, all that was left was to push us with a shoulder, the Ural francs, Nizhny Novgorod German prints, etc. were already printed ... Well, now, do not excuse yourself, gentlemen partners, if it suddenly hurts!

Only she loves him to the point of madness, is ready to give him all the money, buy a car on credit, freeze her ears and even get sick with syphilis - just to please him.

    neither Europe nor the United States today have effective levers to contain Russia
    With its proposals, Russia has put the United States and NATO in an uncomfortable position. In reality, they are afraid to fight with us, but "pride" does not allow us to meet. There remains a tried and tested way out - to chatter while continuing to solve their problems. At the same time, they understand that the Russian side will not buy into this trick again and they do not quite understand what can be done in response. But the fact that today the Americans are ready to discuss some of Russia's proposals already speaks volumes, since before, there were only threats in various versions.

    It is not profitable for the Russian Federation to own Ukraine in the current situation. RF is not profitable invasion of Ukraine. But the threat from the territory itself cannot be ignored. This is a difficult task for the RF. Point bombing is quite possible. Perhaps physical. elimination of leaders .... It is strange that the Russian Federation hesitates, does nothing. Why are the sites in Romania and Poland still not blown up? The film "Saboteur" ended so interestingly .... and on those .... What did all this FUFLO turn out to be? What then FUFLO?
