Rouhani, Putin, peaceful atom and C-300 for Iran

37
September 13 at the SCO summit in Bishkek, Vladimir Putin met with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani. They talked about Syria, the Iranian nuclear issue, Iran’s good neighborliness and Russia, as well as the issue of supplying something in return for the C-300PMU-1 SAMs - for example, C-300ВМ “Antey-2500”. Earlier, the Iranian side made it clear to Moscow that the outdated Thor systems, which the Kremlin proposed as a replacement, are not “comme il faut”. As for “Antey”, Tehran can agree to such a proposal, as “Kommersant” wrote on the eve of the summit.


Rouhani, Putin, peaceful atom and C-300 for Iran


In a material from September 11, Elena Chernenko and Ivan Safronov (Kommersant) wrote that the Russian authorities decided to meet Iran on two issues: the supply of modified C-300 anti-aircraft missile systems and the construction of the second power unit of the Bushehr nuclear power plant. According to an unnamed source of a newspaper close to the Kremlin, Vladimir Putin ordered both agreements to be worked out on the eve of the Bishkek summit.

It is assumed that the Russian Federation will supply Iran with five divisions of the Antey-300 C-2500BM air defense system, and Tehran, in response, should withdraw the lawsuit against Rosoboronexport for 4 bln. Medvedev ban on the supply of Iran C-2010. The reason for the then sanction was the UN Security Council resolution banning the ban on the transfer of modern weapons to the IRI.

As for "Antey", then it should go to Iran. “This complex is even better for Iran than C-300PMU1,” it’s more effective with missile attacks, ”explained Vladimir Evseev, director of the Center for Socio-Political Research. - And if Iran strikes, then the rocket will be used primarily. So "Antey-2500" is great for the defense of Iran. "

However, details about the agreements, and even more so about the upcoming deal in the press there. If you scroll through different sources, you will find only assumptions and conjectures, as well as doubtful statements about what Rouhani should think hard before agreeing to such a proposal.

As noted by Kira Latukhina ("Russian newspaper"), on the margins of the Bishkek summit, Vladimir Putin addressed Rouhani with the following words: “I am glad to have the opportunity to personally congratulate you on your election as President of Iran and to wish you success.” Further, the Russian leader stressed: “We know how many things today in world affairs revolve around the Iranian nuclear problem, but we also know something else in Russia: Iran is a good neighbor for us, but they don’t choose neighbors. And we have a very large amount of cooperation, there is and there will certainly be. "

In response, the Iranian president said: “Russia is our big neighbor, and relations with your country have always been the subject of attention of all governments. The more actively the consultations between our countries on regional issues are carried out, especially taking into account the sensitive situation in the Middle East, the more it will contribute to solving problems. ”

Love Lyulko (Pravda.ru) believes that Russia sees in Iran a potential partner for the purchase of nuclear power plants (talking about the second stage in Bushehr).

The press also wrote that on September 24, the Russian Federation should commission the first power unit of Bushehr station. Now the reactor passes the last stage of testing.

If you look at the site of Rosatom, then on the second block no News in the relevant section no. Earlier, various analysts noted that Iran has low solvency due to existing international sanctions and that it simply has nothing to pay for a new power unit.

This is probably why there is no news about the planned agreement on the further construction of nuclear power plants as part of the peaceful atomic program - on which the Iranian president is counting.

In the West, they do not believe that the meeting of Rouhani and Putin on the margins of the SCO summit was "cloudless." On the contrary, despite statements about good-neighborliness, there was some tension, including with the 4 fine of a billion dollars for disrupting the air defense system in Medvedev's time.

For example, Marie Zhego in the article “After Syria, Russia plays the Iranian card” («Le Monde», France; source of translation - "InoSMI") writes:

“Now, when Western governments, who are either hot or cold, are in indecision, Vladimir Putin is taking advantage of the open opportunity to the maximum. Russia is once again returning to the geopolitical game in the Middle East, for the first time since the collapse of the USSR in 1991. The Moscow-Damascus-Tehran axis is becoming stronger, and Putin intends to play the first violin in it.

Be that as it may, Vladimir Putin’s meeting with his Iranian counterpart was not rosy. Tehran requires Moscow to pay a fine of 4 billion dollars for non-fulfillment of the C-300 missile system: President Dmitry Medvedev annulled the agreement in the 2010 year because of the new UN sanctions against Iran and its nuclear program. ”


The journalist said that during a conversation with Rouhani, the President of Russia “tried to calm down the awkwardness” by proposing to put the Antey-2500 complexes on condition that Iran removed all legal charges. An agreement on the construction of the second reactor at the Bushehr nuclear power plant is also referred to by the correspondent as “smoothing down”. According to experts, she notes, we are talking about "a political step, because this project is unprofitable for the Russian nuclear industry in economic terms."

Meanwhile, Jego writes further, Russia's support strengthens Iran’s position in the upcoming talks in the group of mediators on the nuclear issue.

“On Sunday, Barack Obama reported on the correspondence with Hassan Rouhani through the Sultan of Oman. "The Iranians understand that the nuclear issue for us is much more important than the chemical weapons", - said the president on the TV channel" ABC ". They should not come to the conclusion that "we will not strike at Iran, since they did not strike at Syria": they need to learn a lesson about "the existence of the potential for solving these issues by diplomatic means."


Here is the strategic key for the Kremlin. Marie Zhego calls this the “key strategic map” of Moscow. With the rise of radical Sunni currents in the North Caucasus and Central Asia, Russia, the journalist said, considers Iran to be a buffer country in the way of a growing threat.

Thus, the dependence is somewhat mutual. Without a threatening judicial fine of four billion, Russia's dependence would, of course, be less. But in the conditions when Moscow frustrated the fulfillment of a large contract on the air defense system (about eight hundred million dollars), the “neighborhood” with Tehran becomes, if one can say so, extremely good - both politically and economically. It is not excluded that Russia will have to build the second power unit of the Bushehr nuclear power plant, even if the IRI is not fully solvent and asks for a Russian loan for construction. Alas, “Rosatom” to build nuclear power plants for loans is no stranger.

Although, if you look through the archived notes on the corporation’s website, then 12 Aug material We will find an expression of a clear reluctance to take on unprofitable projects:

“As for the construction of new units of the Bushehr NPP, this topic was previously discussed, but the real negotiations can begin after the transfer of the first unit to the Iranian customer,” Rosatom reported.

“At the same time, in order to make any decisions on the continuation of cooperation, two conditions must be met: such cooperation must be economically advantageous and comply with Russia's international obligations,” the state corporation emphasized.


Like this. Must be "cost effective". The Kremlin is left with one thing: to work with Iran to achieve, if not withdraw, then at least soften international sanctions against Tehran. Iran, which sells oil fully and openly, and not from under the floor and limited, will be able to increase its solvency. Moreover, unlike Rouhani, in contrast to Ahmadinejad, they are waiting for some progress on the nuclear issue.

          but I believe that Putin did not meddle in Medvedev’s affairs, sent yes, prompted yes. It’s just that Putin is a much more experienced politician and I’m sure that what he prompted was well-reasoned and it would be difficult to disagree with his position.

          In confirmation of my words, we can take the situation with Libya, then Putin openly said that it was against establishing a no-fly zone (because he knew that the West could not be trusted), but the bear felt that the reset changed states, and now they have become kind and fluffy and allowed to throw on Libya is a noose.

          In my opinion this is a great example of Medvedev’s independence, although this example is the only one.

      It is assumed that the Russian Federation will supply Iran with five divisions of the S-300VM Antey-2500 air defense system, and Tehran should retract the $ 4 billion lawsuit against Rosoboronexport filed with the Geneva Arbitration Court in 2010 due to the president’s introduction in 300 Medvedev's ban on the supply of Iran S-XNUMX.

      The main thing is not to delay delivery, it is still not clear whether Syria has the S-300. Why are the authorities so cautious? Is the influence of the West and Israel so strong on our power?

    it is strange that for all the time after the failure of the S-300 supply contract, the Chinese did not offer Iran their copies of the Russian air defense system. It’s good that they will be delivered to the Iranians. Maybe they will refuse a fine of 4 billion - they are not offered modern SAMs every day.

      The Chinese copies are not the Antaeus that Putin offers. This complex ensures the defeat of aerodynamic targets (aircraft) by the first missile, and ballistic missiles were destroyed at a cost no more than two SAM
      No wonder in the West they call him Gladiator

      The S-300V / VM (9K81) air defense missile system is designed for the defense of groupings of troops and the most important front and rear targets from massed ballistic missiles of operational-tactical use (such as "Lance", "Pershing") aeroballistic (like SRAM) and cruise missiles (like ALCM ), strategic and tactical aviation planes, barring directors of active interference, combat helicopters in difficult air and jamming situations, while conducting covered maneuvers of military operations. The S-300V air defense missile system is the first mobile universal missile and anti-aircraft defense system.

      We can not say that the Chinese FD-2000 (clone S-300) is not supplied to Iran repeat Moreover, according to the characteristics declared by the Chinese themselves, it “falls short” of the S-300PMU-1. And all the Chinese "clones" are much worse than the Russian "originals". And besides, China is perhaps the only country (of the major players), well, besides America, to whom these sanctions are economically beneficial.

    Iran is one of America’s main opponents in the region. And that means an ally of Russia. Through the efforts of the United States, many former allies of the USSR and Russia became vassals of America. Therefore, economic and military cooperation, with countries such as Iran, should not constantly be interrupted, but develop. Moreover, such activity brings considerable income to the state treasury. Russia's concession to the Americans in banning the supply of C-300 to Iran did not bring any benefit to anyone. The USA does not reckon with the interests of our country. And we should observe only our interests!

    Undoubtedly, Syria is the first obstacle on this path for Western and Arab globalizers! Iran is the last and last obstacle, so, as they say, there is nowhere to retreat, Russia is behind! It’s time to shut up the grubbers of the Western grandees — homegrown liberals — and, until it’s too late, to correct the undoubted NONSENSE (equivalent to WRITTEN to the interests of Russia), which our demons previously admitted to the Western democrats, and begin to strengthen Iran as a buffer zone!

    The reason for the sanction at that time was a UN Security Council resolution banning the ban on the transfer of modern weapons to Iran.
    The aforementioned UN resolution deals with the prohibition of the supply of shock and offensive weapons (tanks, planes, missiles, artillery) and there is nothing about air defense systems. So the non-delivery to Iran of the S-300 is Medvedev’s pure deflection at the request of his American friends.
    The United States expressed gratitude to Russia for “restraint” in the implementation of the contract for the supply of S-300 air defense systems to Iran. The representative of the State Department, Philip Crowley, noted that "the resolution adopted by the Security Council urges all countries to exercise caution and restraint in the sale of any weapons." However, he agreed that the sale of the S-300 is not prohibited by the decision of the Security Council. Nikolay Kolchugin, based on: Institute of the Middle East
    In addition, China “sneezed” on these sanctions and continues to do so as it bought oil from Iran. And because of the sanctions, on more favorable terms for themselves. And the freezing of the Bushehr station is Iran’s response to the position of Russia that supported the UN sanctions and refused the S-300 contract, but because Rosatom is not profitable as the Frenchwoman Marie Zhego thinks. I would have asked this hack for Kirienko to be better "Rosatom project or not.

      So, maybe it’s worth agreeing on the creation of a base of the Russian Navy in Iran?

      There is no certainty - tomorrow another Ayatollah will announce jihad and the base will be covered with a copper basin

        hi The east is a delicate matter - Iran needs Russia more than Iran of Russia. Knowing the nature of the authorities, I dare to assure you that Iran is not with you in all matters. just look at Iran’s stance on the Caspian. Khamnei is too old, and it’s still unknown who will be the supreme leader of Iran. It is not known how the new will behave. And the variability in Iran’s position is not uncommon.

    residual look at Iran’s position on the Caspian.

    A very important issue to which Russian politicians pay much less attention than the long-term good neighborly relations require. Recently, China bought the American oil package in the Caspian on the development of Kashagan fields as a basis. Given that China is the main supplier of naval weapons for Iran, which in terms of total displacement is significantly higher than Russia, it is easy to understand that Iran will very easily gain the support of China in the division of the Caspian. Well, the actions of Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan are not difficult to predict.
    This growing threat can be defused only by joint projects and mutual investments in the development of the Caspian fields and the construction of oil pipelines. And for some reason, these issues of strategic stability are not paid either by Medvedev or Puteny.

    Medvedev does not "try" to steer, he is played as a child by the country

    Good afternoon, dear Ivan!

    Let me disagree with you. In my humble opinion, Comrade Medvedev is only played with iPhone. winked
    Well, all the rest of his actions in one or another state post
    - So this is just obedient execution of instructions, "advice" and "wishes" of puppeteers from Russia and abroad. negative

    As the old proverb says: To live with wolves, howl like a wolf!

    Since Gorbachev’s times, Russia has always been inferior to the West in geopolitics, it’s time to stop it before it’s too late. Apparently Putin realized this, I hope that firmly. Although Medvedev relied heavily on Putin in his presidency, that there was no need to prove it, this did not save him from all the mistakes he had made. By this he signed a sentence to himself as a politician. For the failure of contracts with Iran, the S-300 at one time, it is really very embarrassing.

    Less need to fraternize with the eastern countries! They always have a knife behind their backs, and not a gift or flowers (whoever likes it). We must think, and then act! To sell and give is the last thing for any fool! Let Medvedev and Putin think not for themselves, but for Russia!
