The warming of relations between Moscow and London: from oil to apples
The warming between Britain and Russia, the title of this article, includes several components. The weather changed from cloudy to sunny after last year’s lawsuit, in which the disgraced oligarch Berezovsky was declared Elizabeth Gloucester “not credible” and “dishonest” (he had previously been known as such in Russia). The climate between the two countries has improved in the course of the Litvinenko case, which, as it turned out, worked for the British special services, who are now interested in lowering the case on the brakes - that is why the “Russian trace” lost its actuality. The March Strategic Dialogue (Lavrov, Shoigu-Haig, Hammond) was also a kind of favorable weather forecast, promising a hot friendship between the British and the Russians in the 2014 th “cross year of culture”. Significantly influenced the warming of relations and the economic component: British Petroleum has recently become a minority shareholder of Rosneft (19,75%). Finally, the climatic changes have reached the point that the British this season demanded not only somebody, but Russians to harvest vegetables.



Let us briefly describe the geopolitical components of international warming.

At the beginning of December 2012 of the year One political character, very well known in Russia and even proposing to make it a monarchy, lost outright against Roman Abramovich and found himself in a difficult financial situation. The disgraced oligarch B. A. Berezovsky even sold real estate in Surey County, acquired by unsustainable oligarchic work, stopped transferring money to his own “Civil Liberties Fund”, and did not give money to Alexander Litvinenko’s widow. Before - gave, and a lot.

Once Mr. Berezovsky led and financed an entire campaign to discredit the Russian authorities. “Ironically, the decision of the English court did what the 10 years had failed the Kremlin: put an end to Boris’s anti-Putin activities in London,” - with a bitterness in his voice сказал one friend of Berezovsky, who wished to preserve anonymity.

In addition, Judge Elizabeth Gloucester very unpleasantly responded about Boris Abramovich. The court decision will remain in the annals storiessince what is said by the judges in England is being recorded. Mr Berezovsky was branded as “not trustworthy” and “dishonest”.

Later, on March 23 2013, Mr. Berezovsky died mysteriously, which gave rise to reports of a “Russian trace”. It seemed that between Britain and Russia will become colder again. But no: Western journalists gossiped, gossiped - and, observing the authorities' disregard, were silent.

Same march London hosted the first meeting of the Russian-British Strategic Dialogue. The delegation from Russia was headed by Sergey Lavrov and Sergey Shoigu, and the British were represented by William Hague and Philip Hammond. This high-level meeting aroused heightened interest among politicians, experts and journalists, recalls "Century"since Moscow and London’s relations have deteriorated sharply since the mid 2000, including due to the “Litvinenko case” and London’s position during the short Georgian war (2008).

The closed conference mode did not give an opportunity to judge it in full. But something positive about the upcoming cooperation between Russia and Britain became known after the meeting.

S. Shoigu told the press that Russia and the United Kingdom "agreed on further steps to establish not only military, but, possibly, military-technical cooperation."

Another result of the meeting was an agreement signed by Lavrov and Haig on holding a cross-year culture in 2014. “This is in line with the dynamics of the development of our relations,” said the Russian minister.

Commenting on some of the contradictions that exist in relations between Moscow and London, Comrade Lavrov pointed out that "problems will always exist in relations between any two countries, especially countries with regional and global interests." The main thing in this question "is to make sure that artificial problems are not added to the existing ones," he believes.

That March contact of Moscow and London in the format “2 + 2” (with the participation of the foreign ministers and the ministries of defense) was called unprecedented by the observers. The British Foreign Office suggests that in the future such negotiations will take place on an annual basis. The following will most likely take place in Moscow.

In a recent review from "Inopressy" are given materials of American sources on the Litvinenko case.

The Wall Street Journal reports that the British inquiry into poisoning in 2006, the former KGB agent Alexander Litvinenko, is under question, because on Friday the judge supported the British government’s demand to hide classified documents from the public. The coroner said that without these documents relating to the possible involvement of the Russian state in the death of Litvinenko and to any facts of the British Government’s prior acquaintance with the threats of his life, the inquiry would not be “complete, honest and courageous.” The author of the article, Jeanne Whalen, points out that Owen supported the government’s demand to keep secret documents, but not all. He reviewed the materials provided by the government in closed preliminary hearings. He cannot publicly state their content.

The widow of Litvinenko accused the coroner of refusing to “search for the truth about the responsibility of the Russian state for the death of her husband,” says The Huffington Post. A statement by lawyers for Marina Litvinenko says: "This is a very sad day for Litvinenko, a tragedy for British justice, which until recently was respected around the world and tried so hard to expose the crimes committed by the collusion of organized criminals operating from the Kremlin."

William Dunkerley, whose article is published "Voice of Russia", says that there is probably something more behind the case than we see at first glance. British authorities in this case may receive a conflict of interest.

First, the issue of prevention: the ability of the authorities to prevent a crime. Litvinenko worked for the British intelligence services. Did they know about the circumstances that could lead to his death? Could they have prevented his death? If the secret services could not save their agent, did they escape responsibility for this? If any fault lies with the British government, then it may be subject to legal claims from the widow of Litvinenko.

Secondly, another area of ​​conflict of interest is the previously sound baseless accusations against Russia. They seem to be largely based on the accusations voiced by Mr. Berezovsky and his supporters. The author of the material told about this in the book Litvinenko's Fake Murder.

“Has the British government been deceived by Berezovsky? And is it now trying to avoid a well-deserved humiliation due to the fact that this fact will become public? ”


Following fact already talking about energy warming between Moscow and London.

According to RBC, employees of the central office of TNK-BP Management, in large numbers, went to work at Rosneft. Of the 1600 employees, the corresponding statements were written by 90%.

The transaction for the purchase of 100% of TNK-BP shares from its shareholders, BP and Alfa-Access-Renova (AAR), was completed by Rosneft at the end of March. The Russian company acquired 50% from TNK-BP from BP in exchange for 16,65 billion dollars and 12,84% of Rosneft shares. British Petroleum bought 5,66% of Rosneft shares from Rosneftegaz for 4,87 billion dollars. As a result of these transactions, BP received 12,48 billion dollars in cash and became the owner of 19,75% of Rosneft shares ( taking into account the previously owned 1,25% of Rosneft shares).

The Russian oil giant also announced the completion of the acquisition of 50% from TNK-BP from AAR in exchange for 27,73 billion dollars.

Rosneft has consolidated 100% of TNK-BP, becoming as a result of one of the world's largest public oil and gas companies in terms of production and hydrocarbon reserves.

“We welcome BP as the largest shareholder of Rosneft, who through a representative office on the board of directors will participate in shaping the company's strategy,” said Igor Sechin. He noted that the production of the combined company “Rosneft” - “TNK-BP” in 2013 will amount to 206 million tons of oil, and the revenue - 4,9 trillion. rub.

This summer season Russian guest workers can certainly be found on farmland in Britain in very large quantities. Russian, as well as Ukrainian specialists will show a master class in the collection of fruits and vegetables.

Yuri Matsarsky ("News") in the article “Britain wants guest workers from Russia” recently noted the fact that the Migration Board at the UK Border Service recommended the government to introduce special quotas for attracting seasonal workers from Russia and Ukraine.

In the next two years, the country will face significant labor shortages in the agricultural sector. As a member of the Migration Board, Jonathan Wadsworth, told Izvestia, citizens of Russia and Ukraine are already working in Britain, albeit in small quantities. These people cope with the work, according to the official, better than, for example, people from Pakistan and other Asian countries. The latter are simply not familiar with traditional European crops.

The expert noted that, according to the Migration Board, the salary of an unskilled agricultural worker in the English outback is about one and a half times higher than the maximum income of Russian or Ukrainian peasants. Labor on British farms is paid for by the job, and hardworking Russians and Ukrainians are ready to gather or sort fruits and vegetables all day long, separating turnips from potatoes, and apples from cabbage.

      Western culture we have with a slide. You won’t be surprised. Overflows over a cloudy stream. But we should plant genuine Russian culture among Europeans (a kind of small vaccine to restore immunity from eurotolerasty), about which they have almost no idea or have a rather distorted one.

          We read between the lines - we need immigrants from Russia and Ukraine of the European type, instead of immigrants from Asian countries.
          Not only that, some of our beautiful girls are felled to live abroad improving their gene pool, smart heads in the Silicon Valley in America, but they are still not enough. Seeing the demonstrations and pogroms of immigrants from Africa and Asia in Europe reasoned who they sheltered, and so they decided to pull Europeans from the east.

You have to raise your salaries to people, and to your private traders - to indicate: "Take an example from Europe!" laughing (Ukrainians can also add: "You are so eager to go there")

      The quote from the British Ambassador to France, Lord Francis Bertie, in his diary from December 6 on 1918, expressively, cynically and unequivocally expresses the age-old attitude towards Russia:
      “There is no more Russia! It broke up, and the idol in the person of the emperor and religion, which connected different nations of the Orthodox faith, disappeared. If only we succeed in achieving the independence of the buffer states bordering Germany in the east, i.e. Finland, Poland, Estonia, Ukraine, etc., and no matter how much they could be fabricated, then, for me, the rest can be removed to hell and boiled in its own juice. The Russian Republic would not be able to rule the Mohammedan khanates in Central Asia and the Caucasian principalities ”(Bertie F. Behind the Scenes of the Entente. Diary of the British Ambassador in Paris. 1914 – 1919 / Translation and notes by E. S. Berlovich. M. – L., 1927. C.191).

      Russia was, is and will be an enemy for the “Western” world, so that they do not hypocritically proclaim and no matter what curtsies towards Russia, languidly smile or “do not build eyes”. The whole historical experience of relations with them shows this. We, for our mentality, are aliens to them, incomprehensible and unpredictable - wild Asians in European clothes - this is terrible (and not the army). And those who are afraid of that and are at war. And no matter what Russia is — a monarchy, a Soviet of Deputies or a democracy. To paraphrase a classic - only that nation is worth something if it knows how to defend itself!

    Yes, it was already like that. The Britons simply begin to radiate friendliness when they become uncomfortable on their islands, or when they really need something very much.
    In World War I they dreamed of seeing Russian soldiers on the Western Front, in World War II, when the Luftwaffes tried to bomb the islands, they simply begged Stalin to strike, and then politely invited to jointly occupy Persia.
    AND! They also asked Catherine for a soldier to suppress a riot in the American colonies - she didn’t.
    Now they need Slavic migrant workers - as opposed to Muslims? Like, let each other fight for the right of honor to sort apples for local squires.

    Warming with England is the same as congestion with the United States. It's all about oil. Severomorskaya, with a high sulfur content, is accordingly expensive to process, and in production too. It's a long way from the USA. But the "Nord Stream" is very close. We will buy oil from them, and for this we will allow them to sort out our rotten apples.

    Rapprochement with England leads to great bloodletting in Russia. It is enough to recall the First World War and its outcome. For me personally, this rapprochement is very worrying. Surely arrogant Saxons prepared Russia a huge dirty trick.

    Something I did not find in the article any prerequisites for a warming of relations. The British simply poked their noses into their own dirty linen left after the "poloniymen" and BAB. The massive migration of hamsters from TNK-BP to Rosneft only indicates that the latter has more salaries. Arguments about hardworking Slavic peyzan are greatly spoiled by the comparison of income, excluding the cost of living, which is much more than these "one and a half times". The British have driven themselves into a corner and want to get out of there on someone else's back, but they won't get shit!

    citizens of Russia and Ukraine are already working in Britain, albeit in small quantities. These people do the job better, according to the official, than, for example, people from Pakistan and other Asian countries. The latter are simply not familiar with traditional European crops.
    Anyone who wants to go to London for agricultural work? Not really in my native land there is no work. And there you will be equated by rights with a resident of Pakistan and other Asian countries. Unemployment in the UK rose in March to 7,9% (http://telegrafist.org/). The local population is also not familiar with European agricultural crops. Their vegetables immediately grow in supermarkets.

    S. Shoigu told the press that Russia and the United Kingdom "agreed on further steps to establish not only military, but, possibly, military-technical cooperation."

    But this is neither with them, otherwise again, 1917, civil, etc. The Aglichans, in principle, do not know how to truly be friends, they would only shit to someone - especially Russians, but with the wrong hands, and to be themselves in profit, to be - well, not Kazlah! And to be friends with Kazlah - you can’t see cabbage as your ears, unless of course you yourself are Kazel.
    “We welcome BP as the largest shareholder of Rosneft, which, through a representative office on the board of directors, will participate in shaping the company's strategy,” said Igor Sechin.

    In this, you see, the main thing is how the aglikans will get rich - "patriots" damn it, one "family of Simpsons".

    There is a saying about the British - "It is bad to have the Anglo-Saxon as an enemy, but God forbid to have him as a friend!" The phrase belongs to our Russian military historian Major General A.E. Edrikhin. She completely correctly characterizes this nation and is confirmed constantly throughout the existence of Britain. And the warming of relations with RUSSIA can only be alarming, and not cause any positive emotions. And in general, I don't want to have any relations with them, since there can only be temporary one-way directions and nothing more.

    Anglo-Saxons are the eternal enemies of Russia. And this warming is a kind of regrouping of forces on their part. for further warfare. Putin and his comrades understand this very well.

    There is probably more to the global confrontation between Russia and Great Britain than we see at first glance. British authorities in this case may receive a conflict of interest.

    "The ship of the British political crown moved 0 miles from the shores of the United States. But did not come close to the Russian coast and not a mile."
    The raging financial crisis has changed the owner,
    British Petroleum recently became a minority shareholder of Rosneft, which was perceived in the UK with a gnashing of teeth.
    England has no friends; there are national interests. The difficulties experienced by the island kingdom correspond to this postulate, as was the case with Berezovsky and Litvinenko. So it is with British Petroleum and the so-called apple pickers.
    Russia cannot calm down. The Anglo-Saxons are not the people who forgive, and therefore gathers the "fifth column" of dissatisfied, but rich former.

    PS The Telegraph: “Russians spend around 310 million pounds annually in the country. The oligarchs breathed new life into one of the oldest industrial sectors - the production of yachts. Russians are ready to spend and always demand the best goods from the best raw materials. The emergence of a giant fountain of new money launched entire industries, creating new jobs. Chauffeurs, security guards, gardeners - now in London there are almost more butlers than during the time of Queen Victoria. The city has become like a big club for those who are able to make membership dues ”...

    A paradox, but a fact. On the one hand, Britain invites our people to "harvest", and at the same time
    In the UK, half a million people are starving
    In Great Britain, the number of hungry and needy people who turned to the country's "food bank" for help exceeded 500. This is stated in a joint report of public organizations Oxfam and Church Action on Poverty.
    “The shocking reality is that hundreds of thousands of people in the UK are seeking food aid. The cuts in social support have gone too far and led to poverty, deprivation and hunger on a massive scale. It is unacceptable for this to happen in a country with the world's seventh wealthiest wealth. "- said the head of Oxfam Mark Goldring.
    As it turned out, rates increased last year by at least three times compared with previous years and, according to some estimates, will continue to grow.
    According to leading charitable organizations, in the UK because of the economic downturn, as well as cuts in wages and social allowances, the number of families who have to seek help to feed themselves has increased significantly.
    The food crisis, in their opinion, is caused by higher prices for food and fuel. According to them, over the past 5 years, prices for basic foodstuffs increased by 35%, and for heating - by 63%, while some people's incomes did not increase at all.
    Recall that the "food bank" in Britain collects products from manufacturers and suppliers and transfers them to those in need.
    As previously reported, the World Bank plans to overcome poverty around the world over the next 17 years.

    Warming will come only when their journalists are allowed to write the truth about us and the rest of the world, and not prejudiced and sweeping articles dictated by the government. This will be a real step towards.
