Turkey refuses to join European sanctions against Russia

42

Turkey will not join the European sanctions against Russia, Ankara believes that the situation with Ukraine cannot be solved by imposing restrictions on the Russian economy. This was stated by Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu.


The Turkish minister, speaking at a diplomatic forum in Antalya, said that Turkey would not impose sanctions against Russia because of the special operation in Ukraine. According to him, the Turkish government does not believe that the introduction of restrictions will somehow change the problem. At the same time, Cavusoglu noted that Turkey's position is clear and open.

Meanwhile, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that the NATO command expects all members of the alliance to impose sanctions against Russia, and he warned Turkey almost personally, bringing this position to the head of the country's Foreign Ministry.

The new package of sanctions from the European Union will come into force today, March 13, 2022. According to French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian, the new sanctions provide for a ban on foreign investment in Russia's oil industry, and luxury goods will also be banned from being imported into Russian territory. It is planned to expand the circle of Russian businessmen who fell under the sanctions, and the introduction of restrictions in other areas is not ruled out, various options are now being considered.

Earlier, Moscow said that Russia was preparing to impose sanctions, so it takes them calmly, while preparing retaliatory measures against the United States and Europe. It will take some time to develop response measures, but they will be introduced in the near future. At the same time, the West has already felt the consequences of the introduction of its own restrictions, which hit it like a boomerang. The Kremlin assured that Russia has a large margin of safety, and the European economy is largely tied to Russian energy resources.

      Sanctions-sanctions, but how could you squander $415 billion. foreign exchange reserves by placing them in enemy countries?

      Can already start with salaries to calculate? There is not enough law on sabotage and responsibility, wars are not won with white gloves.

              You need more than one, and more than one will fit into the article. It feels like a planned operation. If we simply assume (and now it has been announced) that it was planned to start the database on the part of Ukraine (read NATO), then even then the plans were to create financial difficulties for Russia and it turns out that the implementation was entrusted to specific performers. Let's say the rudely preventive start of the operation against Ukraine did not make it possible to withdraw funds in a timely manner. Here, if you unwind (I hope they will unwind), a lot of things will be highlighted and apparently you will even have to classify it. It's hard to believe that before such an event, they simply accidentally forgot about such funds. Not a single banker and others of this kind, never aroused sympathy in me, and precisely because of venality and self-interest, and not for some other reason, every single muzzle does not inspire confidence.

              In general, more than 500 tons of gold were exported in two years.
              The Central Bank did not buy gold from gold miners at all during these years.
              So it turns out that gold mining is growing from year to year, and everything is in London - "mother".

        Already 415? It started with 250, then Siluyanov reluctantly voiced "well, a maximum of 350". Although a month ago the press cheerfully reported that the wise government hid everything and "if sho", then the bourgeoisie will get gulkin's nose ....

        And where did you get the idea that they were squandered? I kind of doubt this. And there is a simple reason for this. Time was a wagon. We prepared for a long time. Nevertheless, this part was left. In my humble opinion, this is planned. You can consider our economists liberals and other words as much as you like. But there are definitely no outright fools there.

        They blew less, 300 lards (but also money is not superfluous). Siluanov was warned, but he stubbornly saved up dollars, euros, and treasuries. Although all this was with Iran, North Korea, Libya ..... And the rise in prices (inflation), it is possible to stop in a simple way, but an adherent of the FRS sect is not capable of this. And they keep him, for his ability to "comb" social spending. After his implementation of the orders of the President of the Russian Federation, the authority of the latter, to put it mildly, is lowered. hi

        Yes, everything has already been calculated, they simply will not pay the public debt, or they will transfer it to the reserve account. There amounts are comparable.

      Russia does not refuse obligations on the state debt and will pay it in rubles until Western countries unfreeze their gold and foreign exchange reserves, Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said.
      According to him, in such a situation, it is "absolutely fair."

    Turkey has been the largest importer of grains and oil from Russia since 2012, as well as from Ukraine. Taking into account the fact that there is little that will break off from Ukraine this year, we are their only guarantor of food security. So, "they're not going anywhere from the submarine."

    Until now, around 20 people have been disappeared in Crimea. They were abducted by the security services and they are most likely dead....Analysts say that repression of Crimean Tatars is partly due to religion....The policies aim to remove all the traces of Tatar identity and culture and thwart any civil movements....There are over 100 Crimean Tatars that we consider of conscience in Russian prisons with long prison sentences. The majority of these people are religious Muslims....In some cases, people were imprisoned for merely possessing a Quran

    They have a calculation that we will howl without gaskets and go to overthrow the government, we have a calculation to stop the industry of Europe in principle and all. We are hardened in the 90s, they are not, we know what fascism is on our land, they are not, because they themselves are racists (well, Eurocentrists are the same shit). And we have not yet gone to the part of the answer with our trump cards. And wait until the fall, where the Arabs and blacks will grapple with the Ukrainians on the basis of the lack of nishtyaks with benefits, plus their fat gentle population and howl from both camps, plus unemployment plus winter on the nose plus nem gasoline. Just a couple of months and the fun will begin and the further the more. And then there will be no time for puffing up the cheeks in Europe and the states. They will race to lift the sanctions so that they don’t hang their own on a pole. And here we have to choose what to take away according to the reports for the inconvenience. So it’s not so long to sit without tampex.
