West suffers Russia with "international" isolation

Western leaders have found something to their liking: to practice how to behave with countries that have, let's say, their own, different from the western and pro-Western, point of view. In particular, on the situation in Ukraine. For obvious reasons, the main focus on finding a “hard answer” is placed on the Russian Federation. We will try to deal in more detail with the measures that our “partners” are going to take in our (Russian) attitude.

To begin with, I would like to point out a state that is “concerned” in such a way that it “cannot eat” - if to paraphrase a hero of a remarkable Soviet film a little. This, as the absolute majority of readers guessed, is, of course, the most democratic, the most humane, the brightest and smelling exclusively of violets, the state of the world - the United States of America ...

The other day, US Secretary of State Mr. Kerry made a sizzling critic of the Russian position on the situation in Ukraine. Kerry noted that the United States and "some other countries" (we guess which ones) are determined to isolate Russia in the international arena due to the possibility for the Russian President, the Federation Council, to use Russian troops on Ukrainian territory.

All the foreign ministers with whom I spoke yesterday, including representatives of the G8 countries, have a common view on the situation: they are going to isolate Russia and not deal with it as usual
, - expressed the chief diplomat of the United States.

After such a statement, Mr. Kerry would like to ask him when, for the last time, he even glimpsed his progressive democratic view of the globe? Which country is Kerry and other "representatives" going to isolate "internationally"? Russia? With Burundi or Ivory Coast is not an hour confused (forgive the people of Burundi and Cote d'Ivoire). Russia is like not only within the Garden Ring ...

In this regard, for the US Secretary of State and other “insulators” I would like to provide a small geographical reference: the total length of the border of the Russian Federation (according to the Frontier Service) is 60900 km. With China alone, more than 4200 km ... “Isolator” did not grow.

However, the United States is determined ... The same John Kerry threatens:

Russia may lose the G8 summit in Sochi. If the situation does not change, it is possible that this country will even be excluded from G8.

Immediately after the statement by Mr. Kerry, information came from other representatives of G8 that they, they say, all of them suspend their preparations for the G8 summit in Sochi, which is scheduled for the summer. So, on a visit to Putin, having expressed his principled “fi”, representatives of such states as the USA, Germany, Canada, France, Great Britain, Italy will not deign to go (and this state is still doing something in the G8 - maybe or pens paint ...) and Japan.

So, so, so ... The Russians are offended by this demarche ... Well, we will not be able to contemplate in Sochi such democratic lights as Barack Obama or Canadian Prime Minister Harper (and there is such ...). What a tragedy, however ...

True, by agreeing not to prepare for the summit, representatives of far from all the G8 countries expressed their determination to exclude Russia from G8. One of those countries that declared the need to maintain a direct dialogue with Russia was Germany. Whether it was after Putin and Merkel talked on the phone, or if the high-ranking German politicians still have more gray matter in the skull boxes and, accordingly, more pragmatics than some (will not show a finger ...) others. In general, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Germany Frank-Walter Steinmeier spoke out about the Kerry proposal impartially. He stated that he saw no reason to exclude the Russian Federation from G8, presenting his arguments:

I rather belong to those who say that G8 is the only format in which we, the representatives of the West, can still speak with Russia without intermediaries. And should we really sacrifice this format?

Probably, Steinmeier took such a position, which does not fit Washington, for the reason that he, as the Russian proverb says, has a stigma in a cannon. After all, it was Steinmeier who was one of the “guarantors” of the February 25 agreement from 2014 between Viktor Yanukovych and representatives of the so-called Ukrainian opposition. As everyone knows, the guarantors of Steinmeier and his two colleagues (representatives of France and Poland) did not come out. And if it did not, then the German Foreign Minister, in fact, is one of those who actually condoned the escalation of the conflict in Ukraine. Well, if Harr Steinmeier realizes this, then we can consider it a step forward from his side. But will the position of the head of the German Foreign Ministry be heard in the rest of the Six? ..

Although on the other hand - and what is, in fact, G8? Have you ever resolved important issues in this organization, did you take into account, say, Russian interests? Sorry, but the phrase “The Big Eight” does not cause anything other than irony, if only because it has Italy, not China, for example, if it has Japan, but not India or Brazil ... So, that today's G8 is a peculiar concentrate of pro-American geopolitics, which, by a misunderstanding, is diluted by Russia. But if the guys there are “well concentrated” - to the level of vigorous acetic essence, then whether Russia needs to marinate with them, persistently “add as friends” to this narrow circle of impassable debtors (the national debt of Japan alone today is more than 12 trillion (!) dollars)? .. A question from the category of rhetorical.

But, let's continue about the measures. One of the measures that should happen to this, is again expressed by Mr. Kerry. Not otherwise, all night in his notebook, breaking pencils, made notes.

So, the next measure against Russia from Mr. Kerry personally. According to him, citizens of Russia who are going to come to the US in the near future or, attention, to Europe, may be denied visas. We remind you that this seems to be said not like the Supreme Pharaoh of All Europe and America, but the head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of a single state. In this regard, the question arises: do the words of John Kerry mean that decisions on issuing or not issuing visas to the European Union are made to Russian citizens in the United States of America, or under the “sensitive guidance” of the diplomatic services of this state? The world, of course, guessed that the European Union did not know what independent politics was, but so clearly ...

By the way, on the ban on entry and other demarches. The US side refused to receive visas to representatives of the Rosselkhoznadzor, who were supposed to arrive in the US to discuss work in the WTO (in particular, on the possible accession to Kazakhstan of the WTO). Considering the “bright future” that can be expected when joining the World Trade Organization, most news the delegates from the Rosselkhoznadzor were probably delighted about Kazakhstan being banned from entering America ... The Americans thought it would make Astana indignant - they say, “Russian militarism” does not allow honest Kazakhs to join the WTO humanly, but honest Kazakhs responded much more restrained ... The Kazakh delegation, by the way, was admitted to the United States. And now, her (the Kazakh delegation) representatives think - maybe in vain we were “let in”, maybe before it is too late - well, this is her WTO ...

In general, the isolation is mind-blowing, nothing to say.

By the way, in this regard, it would be important for the Russian Foreign Ministry to mention all those Russian citizens to whom the US Embassy is going to issue visas without any problems - there is reason to think. Especially, given that the average Russian in the United States is hardly going.

Other “our” partners, hot Finnish guys, for example, represented by Finnish Defense Minister Carl Haglund, decided to apply their sanctions against Russia. Mr. Haglund, O Mother of God, TAKEN and POSTPONED the trip to St. Petersburg, where he was to meet with Sergei Shoigu! Here is a demarche, so a demarche ... The main Finnish military man explained his “postponement” with the situation in Crimea. And how after that exist St. Petersburg people? The northern capital was waiting, you know, getting ready ...

New Zealand also decided to isolate Russia. The question is heard: “where is it?”

So the New Zealand government will suspend negotiations on the conclusion of an agreement on a free trade zone with Russia. In this regard, it is interesting to look at the person who in general thought up to conclude such an agreement with the NC. A closer just no one to conclude? For reference: the distance from Moscow to Wellington (the capital of New Zealand) in a straight line is more than 15 thousand kilometers. Another would be the signing of the border treaty refused, pranksters ...

Well, and the “world community” is threatening to boycott the Paralympic Games, recall its ambassadors from Russia (Lithuania and Canada have already withdrawn), freeze accounts in Western banks and other “horrors”. In this regard, the question-proposal to our authorities: maybe, after all, we will reformat the contents of the Reserve Fund, removing about 100 billion dollars from the "use" of the banking system of Europe and the USA? Wow, how will these systems be “delighted” ... Is there enough political will in Russia itself? ..

The Iranian ambassador to Russia, Ihdi Sanai, expressed support for the Russian Federation regarding the moves being taken by the West and said that it is hardly necessary to fear for a country like Russia:

It seems that the psychological impact of sanctions and the pressure of the United States and the West on economic institutions exceeds the sanctions themselves. I urge the Russian trade and economic institutions to increase their work with Iran.

Chinese edition "People's Daily" (in fact, the main press organ of the Chinese Communist Party, expressing the position of official Beijing) writes that the United States was finally bogged down with arguments about its sanctions "in the Cold War worldview."

From the article:

The complexity of the current system of international relations lies in changing the balance of the real strength of large countries; international rules have entered a period of regulation. Thus, the states of the world should renew mutual understanding about each other, abandon inert thinking, take advantage of opportunities in order to create a space for cooperation. The existing problems between the West and Russia can be solved only by relying on concrete cooperation and trust.

It is necessary to abandon the ideological shackles of the Cold War, the only way to reduce the force of unnecessary resistance, improving international relations.

A British company British Petroleum, according to its management, lost only 1 a billion dollars in just one day of “international sanctions” against Russia due to falling Rosneft prices ... Analyst Andrew Neff says this:

The deterioration of Russia's relations with the West puts British Petroleum and Exxon in an extremely difficult position. They are waiting for a relatively difficult period, but they are unlikely to leave the Russian market.

Who said anything about the international isolation of Russia? ..

        If they could isolate Russia, without serious consequences for themselves, then they would do so in August 2008. Isolation of Russia is a bluff. But Putin has not yet turned all the levers, only the most obvious ones, made it clear that he will do everything for Ukraine, and as far as it needs to, and he has the embargoes of America.

And as a result:“The Chinese side expressed understanding of the analysis presented by Russia of the causes of the deep political crisis in Ukraine, the role played by external forces in supporting EuroMaidan, as well as the consequences of its actual failure to fulfill the agreements on the Agreement on the settlement of the crisis in Ukraine of February 21 from .g. ”, the message says.

            I agree with the West and am happy to introduce all possible sanctions, but we cannot, because in return we can withdraw from many agreements, start deliveries of X-NUMX to Iran and Syria, and possibly Iskander. And then if they use all their sanctions capabilities now, then what they what will they do if in response to these actions we introduce troops and annex Abkhazia, South Ossetia, Crimea, and southeast Ukraine to Russia? what will they then answer if they have already used everything? so that they may hold some sanctions, especially the gas valve on our side)))

          Then they were not ready for such a turn of events and were on the eve of action. Now they had prepared and were counting on such a development of the "outskirts" question.
          They will introduce sanctions like "Jackson-broom", "Magnitsky list".
          All "lards" of gold and foreign exchange reserves, the accounts of the Aligarhs will be "frozen". The property of the aligarchs and officials will be nationalized.
          Include all resources and all possible leverage.
          They also have nothing to lose.
          Either they will pacify the BEAR or all the others will follow the BEAR and the collapse of the "golden lard" is not far off.

A bunch of nurtured neo-fascists are given out for the Ukrainian people, they are trying to present their crimes with lawful actions, and lawful actions of the defended lawfully elected government as a crime. At the same time, the blood that people shed according to their instructions is being dumped onto the defending side.
        In this slanting top ten, both the American president, and the English prime minister and a bunch of smaller vassals. And it became clear that all of them - without exception - are complete villains.
        It is time for all of us to understand that under the real - totalitarian - democratic regime, it is the selection of such outcasts, essentially criminals, to power. And think about a return from democracy to the Soviet democracy.

The banking sector alone will lose about 60 billion dollars, in addition, the capitalization of Russian companies is falling, this is without taking into account the fact that the top Russian enterprises are credited by international organizations (Lukoil, for example).

        And do you propose to raise the paws before the nasty and so filth? Are you aware that even with us, in Latvia, 58% of Ukrainians are on the right (or rather, in disempowered status) of non-second-class citizens? And this is the EU country, which announced the support of the Ukrainian people (Bandera and other similar cattle), which, along with the rest of the stars in the United States, screeches about democracy and other mutoten. It is a matter of honor for Russia itself - whether it has taken place as a truly independent and self-sufficient state or whether it should nevertheless turn into our likeness of reluctant mongrels in front of the Master. This is an elementary question - to be a People or a people, a State or a certain territorial unit under an actual protectorate.

    Isolation is to a large extent dangerous for the Russian "elite". But for most of the Russian people, threats to the elite are like a threat from a Finnish minister. Perhaps we will survive. But, on the other hand, - in principle, it is not necessary to shake things up. Food prices will affect many.
    It seems reasonable to use the results of the night session of the UN Security Council. There they demanded "to return Russian troops to their places of permanent deployment." Yes! The self-defense forces in Crimea have co-organized, the government of the autonomy is acting reasonably and decisively. In principle, IMHO - you can really place a group of polite people with weapons and in uniforms without identification marks on the territory of the Black Sea Fleet base in Sevastopol. Under the control of international observers. And the UN requirement is fulfilled, and the necessary forces are within 2 hours on armor to any point on the peninsula. And the quota of 25 personnel is far from being chosen.
    And do not escalate anything.

    EU nominated Russia
    ultimatum in Ukraine
    3 March 2014, 23: 55
    EU Foreign Ministers held
    in Brussels an emergency meeting,
    dedicated to the situation
    in Ukraine. Accusing Russia
    in exacerbating the crisis in the Crimea,
    European diplomats
    put forward an ultimatum to Moscow:
    if until March 6 she
    will not take steps to
    “De-escalation of the situation
    on the peninsula ”then there will be
    punished. First thing
    proposed to collapse
    simplification negotiations
    visa regime between the Russian Federation
    and the EU
    The European Union threatened Russia
    sanctions in case of
    “Continued escalation
    in Crimea". The situation in Ukraine
    EU foreign ministers
    discussed on Monday
    at an unscheduled meeting
    in Brussels. Following the meeting
    they put forward Russia
    ultimatum: before emergency
    EU summit scheduled
    on Thursday, Moscow should
    take steps to
    “Termination of military
    activity ”in Crimea - in another
    in case she faces sanctions.
    Firstly, it is
    on curtailing negotiations
    visa liberalization
    regime between the Russian Federation and the EU. On the
    at the moment the parties are
    dialogue in two directions -
    visa facilitation
    formalities and complete cancellation
    visas However, it is worth noting
    that talks on both tracks
    started to skid yet
    before the appearance between Moscow
    and Brussels disagreements
    regarding the situation in Kiev.
    Collapse Dialog
    visa liberalization
    regime will hit the plans of the Russian Federation -
    in Moscow hoped for progress
    at least one
    of directions already this year.
    Secondly, the EU threatens Russia
    suspension of negotiations
    by signing a new base
    Partnership agreement
    and collaboration. Without basic
    cooperation agreements of the Russian Federation
    and the EU have been living since 2008. Former
    1994 agreement (entered into
    in force in 1997) acted
    ten years and by 2007,
    According to the parties,
    hopelessly out of date. RF and EU
    hoped to quickly develop
    new document in return
    former, however, the process is
    and the case was interrupted due
    unforeseen circumstances -
    trade war with Poland,
    political disagreement
    with Lithuania and general cooling
    relations with the EU due to war
    in South Ossetia.
    The last hurdle
    the adoption of the agreement became
    protracted negotiations
    on Russia's entry
    to World Trade
    organization. But also after
    Russia's entry into the WTO process
    did not budge. The EU has become
    insist on making
    in the agreement of a number of paragraphs,
    not covered by agreements
    RF with the WTO (we are talking about trade
    competition law
    and public procurement mode). Moscow is
    accused Brussels that he
    "Wants everything at once." Lately
    EU time showed much greater
    in intensifying negotiations
    on this topic than Russian
    side. So it’s rather a “goal
    into their gates. "
    About additional measures
    which the EU can resort to,
    Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov
    on Monday night should
    had to tell him German
    colleague Frank Walter
    Steinmeier (immediately after the meeting
    German Foreign Minister in Brussels
    flew to Geneva, where on that
    moment was mr
    Lavrov). Tuesday or wednesday
    head of Russian diplomacy
    will discuss the situation in Ukraine
    with the EU Foreign Minister
    Katherine Ashton (meeting will be held
    in Madrid).
    March 3 leaders of member countries
    "Group of Seven" (G7) - Canada,
    France, Italy, Germany,
    Japan, UK
    and the USA - condemned Moscow for
    “Apparent violation
    sovereignty and territorial
    integrity of Ukraine ”,
    pausing preparation
    to participate in the upcoming summit
    in Sochi.

    military ties with Russia over
    events in Ukraine
    4 March 2014, 5: 02
    WASHINGTON, March 4. / ITAR
    TASS. US freeze
    military ties with Russia over
    events in Ukraine. About it
    it is said in common
    March 3 Pentagon statement
    “In the light of recent events
    in Ukraine we suspend
    all military contacts between the USA
    and Russia, ”says
    in the document.
    It is worth recalling: 1
    March US Secretary of Defense Chuck
    Hagel announced that Washington
    intends to settle contradictions
    with Moscow in Ukrainian
    issue diplomatically.
    “We are trying to act,
    keeping the spotlight
    diplomacy. It is proper
    responsible approach, ”said
    Pentagon chef in an interview
    CBS channel.
    Hagel walked away from a direct answer
    to the question of what measures
    can take washington
    if saved by him
    disagreements with Moscow
    on the situation in Ukraine. "We have
    many options like
    from any other country, ”said
    he specifying what the US is doing
    bet on diplomacy.
    However, the head of the American
    military department expressed
    opinion that may develop
    “Very dangerous situation” if
    events in Ukraine "will continue
    develop provocative
    way. "

    So suppose I have 1 billion. You have a bank. It's all so cool. But I know that this bank can freeze any of its depositors' accounts at the request of the government. Will I carry my money to this bank? I think the answer is obvious . The bank seems to me the identity of happiness will not increase from this.

    1 The broadest autonomy of Crimea
    2 Implementation of agreements of 21.02.14
    If Russia achieves this, then there is gunpowder in the flasks, and the berries ....
    Then it becomes clear, the era of the dictates of the West has exhausted itself

    The screams of Western politicians are nothing more than screams !!! Foreign companies / investors have been fruitfully working in Russia for a long time, earning quite a decent profit, incomparable with Europe and America. Take only one auto industry: sales of new cars are growing only in Russia and China (I speak competently). Western business is very pragmatic. For the sake of some kind of Ukraine (which not everyone can show on the map), they will not wind down their projects, close factories and enterprises. And the fact that the ruble is "storming" is banal speculative mega-operations of Western and our bankers !!!

    The thing is that the policy of sanctions is quite applicable to them themselves. Interestingly, they somehow posed this question for themselves? ..

    Nothing new actually happened. You can't wash a black dog to white - folk wisdom, as always, is 100% right. Any adequate person should remember that the greatest folly would be to assume that it is possible to convince with the words of an inveterate scumbag, which is the United States along with a crowd of its satellites, among which our "good" neighbor Finland is also noticed. This is also about the question of the next groaning, for example, about the loss of the information war in Ukraine. And how was it conceived to win in it, if Russia is simply not allowed into not only the Western pseudo-demacratic media with any information or explanation that does not fit into their matrix, but in the same Ukraine they are jammed as they can. You need to know your history and remember that the Crimean War of 1853-1856. was fought against Russia by England, France, Turkey and Italy, which had been forced into this company. So the words about the unceasing aggression for a thousand years (in any of its manifestations) against Russia is not paranoia, but just a statement of historical facts, that you want peace - get ready for war. As they say, God save me from such friends, and I myself will get rid of enemies.

    But it seems to me that the point is what.
    Obama and his administration have lost, for obvious reasons, all the points and percentages of confidence in their population.
    Like a drowning man grabbing a straw, they are trying to switch the population to foreign policy.
    Their hysteria regarding the huge state. debt and actually impending default and caused these chewing snot.
    Look. After all, Russia has not even brought a single regiment or brigade into Ukraine, but acts only in units from the Russian Black Sea Fleet, and Kerry is already howling: Occupation, 19th century. Pi ... t to world peace. The Russians are coming (apparently seen enough videos about Crimea and the "Russians are coming" on YouTube impressed him with mi-8, mi-35 and mi-24 filmed on the phone). Aaaaaa. Urgently and urgently isolate, quickly and quickly ban all visas. Immediately, I said, immediately the European Union stand at attention. Listen to battle order from Washington:
    1. Do not issue visas to Europe - let them feel how unbearable it is to live without trips to Europe-Latky, Lithuania, the Czech Republic, Germany-France.
    2. Break military ties. Let them - like their ships, when the solarium ends, hang out at our shores and eat raw fish. We will not refuel them and will not swim to them ourselves. Ish cho! Give Crimea to the invaders.
    3. Agricultural workers from Russia are not allowed. Let them themselves lose crops without our "technologies".
    4. Russian accounts to freeze. Let them print their wooden ones and depreciate them, but we will not be paid.
    Then Putin will sing, here the Russians will kneel down and pray.

    Do not be like that. Drive banerovtsev and destroy! Without looking back at NATO and the states to bring in cases of troops in Ukraine. Yarosh at the stake, the controlling clique of the leadership of Kiev - in prison.
    We are barbarians, you yourself brought us up for 20 years, get it.

    Russia is the only country in the world that, at least on the perimeter, close everything we have from Milk to Uranus))))) Strictly fill us. For example, an Automobile plant of some sort — well, let's say Ford — they closed the cash flows, the plant was actually selected with equipment, etc., and we’ll order everything we’ll need from friends in China)))) they learned how to copy well !!! And one more moment I vote for healthy eating on this Fuck MacDonaldzzzzz !!!!! I think everyone will survive without burgers and cola, oh - yes iPhones, iPods also go in the forest - The late Steve was a creator, and now Samsung has come forward 6th iPhone will be even worse 5 .......

    If our industry and agriculture could fully meet the needs of our country and our allies, then we could shout that we should isolate them to one place ....
    If our Armed Forces were ready to repel external aggression, then it would be possible to ignore the cries from behind the hill ...
    But what the authors of numerous articles on this site warned for so long and in detail, began to take on distinct forms.
    For such a case, we need the combat-ready Armed Forces, our own industry and our own agriculture. But do those who recently deliberately destroyed it all understand this? And if you understood, then for whom did you work?

      All right. Now the moment of truth has come.
      Shout Isolation? - then we are doing everything right.
      Agriculture will have a chance to revive. And the military, you see, it will work as it should.

    What kind of isolation can we talk about, the largest country and under normal government it can be self-sufficient, without bananas we will live. China is still supporting, so whoever just needs to be sent to the Russian member. They flew into space without them.
    The United States does not know what they are doing, it was in 1941 they stayed overseas, in which case today does not work. So they’ll fly and stop. Only liberals can give us a shit, to nail them like lice.
