"South Ossetia can cooperate with the Customs Union without membership in it"

35
"South Ossetia can cooperate with the Customs Union without membership in it"The entry of South Ossetia into the Customs Union is hampered by a number of factors. The key ones are the special status of the republic in the international arena and the position of Belarus and Kazakhstan. However, Tskhinval can cooperate with the CU countries in some economic projects and without fully joining the entire package of documents of the association, said Alexander Karavayev, a researcher at the Institute of Economics of the Russian Academy of Sciences.


Entry into the Customs Union is a priority for South Ossetia. This was stated by the head of the republic Leonid Tibilov at an extended meeting with the presidential aide Vladislav Surkov. She became the second in a row. Prior to this, politicians met in a narrow composition.

The theme of the accession of South Ossetia to the Customs Union has been discussed for more than a year. Earlier, at a meeting of the Inter-Parliamentary Assembly of South Ossetia, Abkhazia and Transnistria, a corresponding appeal was made to the Russian president. While this issue is at the stage of study.

When South Ossetia joins the Customs Union, the Voice of Russia was told by Alexander Karavayev, a researcher at the Institute of Economics of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
- The main obstacle in the way of South Ossetia to the Customs Union is its status: Belarus and Kazakhstan still do not consider it an independent state. How realistic is the accession of the republic to the Customs Union in this case?

- Of course, there will be difficulties, moreover from Kazakhstan even more than from Belarus. For Minsk, relations with Tbilisi are not as significant as for Astana, which has quite diverse and diverse economic ties and projects, and is interested in a number of transport projects in Georgia.

Naturally, Tbilisi will try to lobby for the braking of this possible decision on the accession of South Ossetia to the Customs Union. Actually, this will be a great diplomatic difficulty.

- And can, in principle, Kazakhstan and Belarus make concessions? Is recognition of the republic from their side possible?

- Understand what it is. If Astana and Minsk become aggravated with Tbilisi and these aggravations will be very significant, then I think they will postpone it indefinitely, as it was in September 2008, when they were asked to implement the international act of recognition after Moscow.

But, if we succeed in some kind of informal diplomatic consultations, maybe trilateral between representatives of Russia, Kazakhstan and Georgia, it is impossible to get around this issue, because it is obvious that it is impossible to remove it, because so far Georgia’s strategy is the reintegration of these territories, but somehow remove the sharp corners - then, in principle, nothing is impossible.

But I would note here that it is possible to implement a number of economic projects of the Customs Union on the territory of South Ossetia without full adherence of the republic to the entire package of documents of the CU.

- If we imagine that South Ossetia still gained membership in the Customs Union, what will it give to the republic?

- First, it will give impetus to local producers to enter more distant regional markets. The problem of South Ossetia is that it is in rudimentary macroeconomic development. There are many problems with transport infrastructure, almost a low level of industrial development.

If you can show opportunities for local regional business to sell products not only in the Caucasus and in Russia, but also in those countries that are members of the Customs Union, this will give an additional impetus.

And if they find partners in Belarus and Kazakhstan, then an increase in the direct investment of these countries into the territory of South Ossetia is possible. This is very important, because the republic still lives on 90 percent at the expense of Russia.

- And what can South Ossetia offer the countries of the Customs Union?

- In addition to their products almost nothing. It is necessary to be realistic, South Ossetia differs not only in status, but also in its scale and weight. This is not a typical public education. This is a microregion, which is not an important element for such large economies as Kazakhstan, Russian, Belarusian. Therefore, the question can not be put.

Here, rather, we need to think about how we can help South Ossetia. I have already said how we can help her. First, it is an investment. Secondly, it is the possibility of output of products manufactured in South Ossetia to the markets of the countries of the Customs Union. This will be a very significant contribution to the development of South Ossetia.

      Fair.

      South Ossetia can cooperate with the Customs Union without membership


      Another trump card for European integrators in Ukraine. They say there are no clear criteria and standards for the CU, there is a political desire of Moscow.

      I would say from a strange position. The well-being of ordinary people living in South Ossetia (God forbid anyone have suffered) directly depends on this "position", and then there are political and economic games. Are they afraid of something? Well, let's take at least the recognition of independence: those few countries that were not afraid to recognize how they suffered? What is the fear from? And if it is about material benefits .... Well, do these politicians have an elementary conscience? And they are not asking for handouts, but for the right to work in equal conditions with the rest of the CU members.

    Even in South Ossetia they understand that it is necessary to cooperate with the Customs Union, and it is better to join it altogether. And only our Ukrainian European integrators, like sheep rammed into this EU. Evil is just not enough! They also do not allow our communists to hold a referendum in order to find out the opinion of the common people, do they want their country to be given to plunder Europe or not.

      Why like sheep?
      “Akhmetov, Firtash, Kolomoisky, Zhevago bought abandoned metallurgical,“ dirty ”enterprises in the European Union during the“ zero ”years, transferred their business to Europe, and equipped their enterprises with the latest equipment there ...
      At the same time, in Ukraine they deliberately got rid of the production of high alloy steels and products with high added value in order to make it easier to import raw ore into Europe ......
      The EU very successfully uses the tariff escalation policy: the more products with high added value are imported into the EU, the higher the import tariff rate. Ukrainian oligarchs easily responded to this policy. And at their own enterprises in Britain, Italy and Hungary, Ukrainian oligarchs create the final product with high added value, and they already sell it there. And this structure leaves no doubt why and who lobbies Ukraine’s orientation towards the EU - these are narrow business interests of six to seven people .... When signing the associative membership of Ukraine in the EU at the Ukrainian mining and metallurgical complex, which is already fully integrated into the European Union , you can put an end to ".....
      “There will be separate productions that will be included in the EES division of labor, hundreds of thousands of workers will be freed. This is a colossal social shock for Donetsk, Dnepropetrovsk, Dneprodzerzhinsk "

            many voted for Yanukovych. I even remember that all the information potential of Russia worked for him. The open support of the Russian leadership played a big role in his choice. But now that they miscalculated, no one wants to admit. Who is to blame?

            There will be no real integration, while one looks down at the other, not recognizing equal rights. Here and they flee to the EU. And interestingly, no one specifically says what the benefits of the CU and the disadvantages of the EU are.
            EU associate only by the fact that
            1) Europe will rob Ukraine
            2) go to Europe, become LGBT and that’s all. No more arguments.
            Well, the fact that in Europe not all LGBT people are likely to agree, and you are Elena))

            but about the robbery, I will say with a phrase from the movie "Operation Y and other adventures of Shurik"

              Why doesn't he speak? The benefit in the CU was long ago and clearly indicated - the cost of gas at domestic prices of the Russian Federation, i.e. three times less than now + 10 billion dollars of annual profit, + reduction (or cancellation) of all kinds of customs fees ... But the EU, except for "European values" has not yet offered anything. It is only Yatsenyuk who can try to hang on to his ears that salaries will increase 5 times, pensions - 5 thousand bucks, and all that garbage. When the association is signed, 10 thousand enterprises will be closed. People - to the street. I doubt that they will find work in Europe. But what the EU clearly said is that the grain pool, which Ukraine wanted to create with the Russian Federation and Kazakhstan, can be given up. The EU does not allow this.
              The EU benefits only (maximum) 7 oligarchs. And they lead Yanukovych. Well, the whole oppa, which has money in reserve in Europe, pulls the whole country there.

              What for? It will completely destroy its economic potential so that they cannot restore industry. In this way, it will only tightly hook on EU products and products. It will receive a huge market for its chemical and expired goods. And at the same time a wonderful springboard for NATO. One of the requirements of the EU is to remake all railway tracks to the European standard. And at his own expense. Will this country stretch if it is now in debt like silk? And the warning that from 2015 of the year it will be impossible to sell meat and dairy products in the markets, as well as all kinds of pickles? THOSE. what our villagers live? Only in supermarkets !!! Schaz! Even if they sign this association, there will be a riot. Although, I personally hope that because of Julia, this year everything will fail. And then it will be possible to talk about this only after 7 years.
              And with the fact that not everyone in the EU loves and belongs to LGBT people, I completely agree.

    Russia recognized the independence of South Ossetia, which by the way currently lives up to 80% of residents with Russian citizenship (apparently, the entire population of the republic except ethnic Georgians) and this recognition occurred only after the Georgians tried to bomb, cut out the entire population, including our peacekeepers. Here we are not talking about accession, and if it did, then to the North Caucasus Federal District, not the South.

    Not soon. Immediately after August 2008, the president of South Ossetia announced his firm intention to join the Russian Federation. DAM categorically rejected this possibility. Which is logical, we can be accused of armed invasion with the aim of annexing part of the territory of Georgia. And so we are waiting for the recognition of South Ossetia by other states. And you need to work in this direction. After international recognition (at least by our allies, but by everyone), it is possible and necessary to begin reunification.

      Well, not Sergei Markov, but Igor Markov, a former deputy of the Verkhovna Rada, who was deprived of his parliamentary mandate in September for falsifying the election results. During his term in office, he was in the faction of the ruling "Party of Regions", which promotes "Eurointegration". In the 90s, this fighter for the Russian people was known by the nicknames "Maradonna" and "Celentano". And he was detained not for a rally in support of the Customs Union, but for another beating of people. Fortunately, he and his activists have already done this more than once - in 2007 at a rally, in 2008 - they were detained for beating up the SBU officers, then for beating the head physician of the sanatorium.

        "On September 12, the Supreme Administrative Court ordered the Central Election Commission to cancel the registration of MP Igor Markov, recognizing the election results in the 133rd majoritarian constituency in Odessa as falsified. Speaker Rybak ordered to block Markov's voting card and stop calculating his salary. Markov himself believes that the charges his election fraud is connected with the fact that he opposes the European integration of Ukraine and does not intend to vote for bills promoting the signing of the Association Agreement with the EU.

        Does it not seem strange to you that when Markov defiantly declared that he would not vote for Euro laws, it immediately turned out that his election was rigged. Previously, no one had stuttered something about this. We had problem areas, by-elections will be held on them now. But in the area where Markov was chosen, there were no questions.
