Ukrainian crisis as a trap for the EU and the US


An article appeared in RBC today signed by financial experts Ivan Tkachev, Evgeny Novikov and Elena Malysheva. The essence of the study is that Mr. Putin laid a huge mine under the Ukrainian crisis, which our “partners” did not notice in time. This is one small phrase in the 200-page agreement on the provision of 15 billion to Ukraine in exchange for Eurobonds ...

In the prospectus of two-year Eurobonds for 3 billion dollars, it is said that while the securities are in circulation, Ukraine "undertakes to maintain the total amount of public debt and state guaranteed debt at no more than 60% of annual nominal GDP." As Mitu Gulati, a professor of law at Duke University in the United States, points out, one of the authoritative experts on such transactions that this clause actually repeats the provision of Article XXUMX of the Budget Code of Ukraine. But, according to Gulati, his inclusion in the terms of placement of Eurobonds could be done at the insistence of Russia. In case of violation of this obligation, Russia will have the right to demand early repayment of securities from Ukraine. The bomb exploded yesterday ...

The article has a lot of abstruse terms, you can read them here:

I will try to translate into accessible Russian.

1. If I understood correctly, before borrowing money from someone, the Ukrainian government is obliged to pay Russia's debt - these are 2 billion for gas, 3 for eurobonds and 12 a penalty for gas - total 17 billion. Only after that Ukraine can receive tranches and billions from other sources. Therefore, talk of money the IMF and the United States with the EU, together, hung in the air.

2. If Ukraine gives 17 billion to get something, then she herself needs at least 15-17 billion for life ... That is, the EU or the IMF or the United States or all together should give Ukraine at least 30 billion. Neither the EU nor the United States has such money. You can take money only from Russia or China, no one else has it.

And then in China, if Russia agrees, and without it, again, China will not give ...

That is, we get that in order to get Ukraine, the EU should borrow at least 30 billions from Russia. And for what? To prove to the people of Ukraine that the people who took power are capable of doing something?
Knowing Europe, I doubt it very much. Moreover, recently there have been signals in serious publications that the Europeans are extremely dissatisfied with the situation in which the United States is simply impudently telling their governments what to do.

As an example: today in France, in business and military circles, Hollande’s unconditional desire to follow instructions from Washington — to declare sanctions to Russia — has provoked outrage. This is despite the fact that the neighbor through the English Channel clearly expressed that she was not going to take part in this “bedlam”. Well, there is an example of a sanction on the arrest of Rogozin's accounts, etc. That is, it is a fiction, because government officials have no accounts.

3. In the USA, it may be that kind of money, but how to explain to taxpayers that they will have to be given to Russia for some incomprehensible Ukraine? This is against the background of today's scandal over the hacking of congressmen computers, in which they accused the CIA. For all the documents that denounced this office disappeared. The senators were from the CIA investigation committee. Making a fuss in Congress about sanctions and other things - a pugalovka ... It was not for nothing that two congressmen introduced the resolution, whose names were heard for the first time in Congress itself.

4. Russia initially advocated territorial integrity, if anyone remembers. The West at that time, supporting the western regions, literally inspired their separation. Recall how independent rads appeared like mushrooms after the rain and announced insubordination to Kiev.

Then Russia, when the West reached its feet in Ukraine, began to show external uncertainty, somehow incomprehensible to rush about, Putin altogether went silent ... In the Southeast, the attempts were weak ... And in general, the Crimean crisis was somehow not planned ... The EU and The United States triumphed, throwing off Yanukovich. Russia again was silent, with a goat kid, however, it was bleating about some kind of international norms. West chuckled.

5. At this time, the new government of Ukraine, reassured by the West, began to behave oddly. The first laws - on the abolition of the ban on propaganda of Nazism, the abolition of the law on languages, the abolition of the law on the autonomy of the Crimea - literally blew up the Crimea and Russian-populated areas.

But more or less normal leaders were found only in the Crimea. Dobkin and Kernes disappointed me very much ... There were a lot of strokes with spread fingers, powerful bubbles, and as a result, zilch ... My opinion - having provoked the Russian community, these leaders, stepping aside, simply surrendered everyone.

This government (and in fact the junta) by its actions, as well as loud statements, completely cut off all the ways for normal communication with Russia. Even Tymoshenko decided to be noted, "partisan" with a scythe.

By the way, as far as I own the information, today an application has been submitted to her at the Prosecutor General’s Office. The essence of it - please give a legal assessment of her performance in Germany, where she, putting in an uncomfortable position and Germany itself, and Angela Merkel in particular, promised and called for guerilla actions on the territory of the Russian Federation ...

Another junta announced to the people that the West is about to help now, but the West has not yet decided how to do everything, so far only talk, the same as about 1 billion from the United States. And Ukraine has announced its entry into NATO, the EU, in general, where they will accept, will go there.

6. Russia calmly, without fuss and fanfare sheltered Mr. Yanukovich, who is legitimate from the point of view of international law. Well, and voiced permission to use the Armed Forces to protect the Russian-speaking population. Olympics brilliantly held, while in Kiev held a Sabbath.

7. As soon as there was organized resistance in the Crimea with pronounced charismatic leaders, the junta, with the hands of Avakov and Nalyvaychenko, with Poroshenko’s involvement on March 1, tried to arrange a "crystal night" in the Crimea. The planes with the ministers had to turn around, and Poroshenko wiped off the Crimean spit from himself, since 30 minutes before time H (by the way, many Ukrainian military in Crimea confirm the fact that their parts were raised on March 1 without an explanation for the alarm) both airports and all military units of the Ukrainian army, including the runways of military airfields, were blocked by unknown persons who received the nickname “green men” by the people.

Putin had no choice. If they didn’t use force, there would be a bloodbath, for local self-defense at that time was already partially armed. Applied - Russia is still to blame ... Something like that ... Although I think it’s excellent to figure out what the junta's gift is doing, which used and still uses the factor of the Russian troops to inflate hysteria in Ukraine. In order to distract people from economic mayhem and rally them against an external enemy.

8. The European Union, in fact, publicly supported the coup d'état in Ukraine. I promised everything, but ... I cannot yet give money, because a restrictive article has been revealed. And now great minds are looking for a way out of this situation. Take Ukraine as an associative member - stop, and who will feed all these millions, who will build roads for them, pay pensions? They are waiting and hoping ... NATO? And according to the Charter of this organization, its member can not be a country with unresolved internal problems. Crimea ... Ha ha ha ...

And on the horizon, the prospect of a final quarrel with Russia looms ... Sanctions are threatened with terrible, terrible ... I listened, since I speak the language, and I don’t know what to do - cry or laugh. No one, except France, is in favor of widespread sanctions ... Point, directed against certain individuals. Suppose Britain, knowing full well that, according to the law of the Russian Federation, state officials do not have the right to have financial accounts abroad, calmly suggests arresting accounts of members of the Russian government. We stopped fussing around visas, while loudly stating this ... It doesn’t matter that the negotiations went unsuccessfully for 7 years.

The most interesting thing is that Putin is again silent. Slightly spoke to reporters, and again he was silent that the West was already annoyed at all. I think so, time is playing on us ... And it will all end in a trite way - the West will have to, after trying to do something, turn it to Putin, behind whose back China is quietly looming.

And then the GDP will speak ... In fact, the GDP and its advisers threw the West into such a dup, that it will have only one way out - to ask Russia to resolve this situation somehow.

Therefore, I ask you not to hysteria and not to insult the representatives of Ukraine, who are visitors of our resource. Believe me - they are a hundred times worse than you ... Respect each other.

What was written above is the essence of my personal vision and the result of the analysis and may not coincide either with the expressed official position or with your opinion.

        Only there is one "but", but will they adhere to this agreement? While we are going to defend the courts that they will already saw the money of the US and the EU. True, then (maybe in a month, or maybe in 10 years), the court will issue an order on the immediate payment of debts, then a default. And this gang will already be overseas.

            That's it. The world payment system belongs to them and is controlled by them. And even the Russian payment system is a branch of the world. We can’t seize or block anything. Judge? But the courts can last for years, the more the courts are controlled by them. Close the ventil? We’ll be in the priest. We are very much integrated into the global economy. The stick is always about two ends.
            So I would not say "Ha-ha", as the author, they say, "they are all trapped." You should not underestimate your opponent. They did not "eat one dog" on financial fraud.

    How joyfully the voices in the West sounded when the value of our securities fell (although in this case too, Russia was able to emerge victorious). Now there is sobering in the minds (again through holes in wallets or budgets). And if Russia gives an answer (as always mirrored) on the issue of sanctions, then he (the West) will move away from such a blow for a long time. And it is necessary to strike (at least half-power) in order to put in place the presumptuous Western world. Bravo Russia !! Keep it up!!

    The West infuriates Putin’s silence, the guys from the West, unlike you, are a man of business and not an empty bell, you promised Ukraine castles in the air, and now you don’t know how to arrange it all, and in general we’re thinking to hell with the Slavs. We Slavs will understand ourselves here without you.

    Alexander Pushkin


    What are you noisy about, folk-like?
    Why anathema threaten you Russia?
    What angered you? unrest in Lithuania?
    Leave: this is a dispute between the Slavs,
    Home, old dispute, weighted by fate,
    A question that you will not solve.

    For a long time among themselves
    These tribes are at war;
    More than once bowed under a thunderstorm
    Theirs, then our side.
    Who will stand in an unequal dispute:
    Puffy Lyakh il faithful Ross?
    Will Slavic streams merge in the Russian sea?
    Will it run dry? here is the question.

    Leave us: you have not read
    These bloody tablets;
    It’s incomprehensible to you, alien to you
    This is a family feud;
    The Kremlin and Prague are silent for you;
    Pointlessly seduces you
    Fights of desperate courage -
    And you hate us ...
    For what? answer: for whether
    What is on the ruins of flaming Moscow
    We did not recognize the brazen will
    Who were you trembling under?
    For the fact that they plunged into the abyss
    We are idol over kingdoms
    And redeemed with our blood
    European liberty, honor and peace?

    You are formidable in words - try it in practice!
    Or the old hero, deceased on his bed,
    Unable to screw up your Izmail bayonet?
    Is the Russian tsar already powerless to speak?
    Or should we argue with Europe new?
    Il Russian weaned from victories?
    Or a little of us? Or from Perm to Tauris,
    From the Finnish cold rocks to the flaming Colchis,
    From the shocked Kremlin
    To the walls of immobile China,
    Shiny bristles,
    Do not get up the Russian land ?. .
    So send us, vitias,
    His angry sons:
    There is a place for them in the fields of Russia,
    Among the coffins that are not theirs.
    “Slanderers of Russia” - a patriotic poem-ode by A. S. Pushkin, published in 1831 and arising in connection with the Polish uprising of 1830-1831.

    If the author read his own link in the article "double", then everything is described in more detail and the risks for Russia are great regarding the return of debts. And where did the $ 12 billion fine in the gas debt come from? Can he explain? In the same article of RBC, to which the author refers, it is written that, in aggregate, Ukraine owes 10 billion dollars to Russia, taking into account private debts, which cannot be returned "automatically"! So too optimistic I would say.

    Guys celebrate victory early. Everything would have been like a note, but on the other side there is now a problem and it is that there are no Churchillies of Roosevelts and De Goleys. Decisions are made by semi-fanatics or half-rags with very low professional training, and idiots are hard to calculate. The main mistake of Stalin was that he considered Adolf to be a more or less competent strategist and came to the belief that he would never risk it, because for him this death basically happened, but what the Fuhrer’s incompetence cost us was not necessary.
    PS For two years, the main specialist and adviser on Syria in the State Department was a woman who bought a diploma and had nothing to do with it.

    So I would not say "Ha-ha", as the author, they say, "they are all trapped." You should not underestimate your opponent. They did not "eat one dog" on financial fraud.

    In 1998, the West demanded immediate repayment of debt from Russia, and Russian Eurobonds went under the hammer, causing a terrible internal crisis - I hope they remember.

    Ukraine has at least one loophole. In theory, the government can refuse to repay the loan, citing the "odious debts" doctrine. This is a legal concept according to which the new government, which considers the previous government to be a corrupt dictatorship, can refuse the debts of the ousted regime. True, this will still have to prove that the money raised by the government of Viktor Yanukovych was directed not for the public good, but for the personal enrichment of people in power.

    In the case of Ukrainian Eurobonds, the application of this concept is doubtful, according to Western experts in the field of law. Most likely, most of the funds received from Russia went through the Ukrainian treasury, and not its elite, said Eric Pozner, professor of law at the University of Chicago. If so, then Ukraine will have to pay the bills of the former government, the expert said.

    The general principles of international law are that governments inherit the debts accumulated by their predecessors in power. For example, even the new Iraqi government, following the overthrow of Saddam Hussein's regime, decided not to resort to the "odious debt" doctrine and instead restructured the dictator's debts within the Paris Club.

    The new Minister of Economy of Ukraine Pavlo Sheremeta said in an interview with RBC daily in early March that Kiev was not going to give up its debts to Russia. "The possibility of default is not even spoken out. We are already negotiating with the European Union and with other countries. It is thanks to the attraction of money from them that we will not allow default," Sheremeta said.
    In any scenario, Russia will be able to "quietly" sell problem Ukrainian Eurobonds to foreign investors - for example, "vulture funds" specializing in just such debts. Formally, Ukrainian Eurobonds are international securities registered on the Irish Stock Exchange and regulated by English law. Russia "is not bound by any restrictions on the sale of some or all of the securities on the market at any time," as stated in the Eurobond prospectus.

    The author Elena Malysheva gave this answer via the link I provided ..... BUT apparently you did not familiarize yourself with her ..

      I won’t argue. Time will tell. All that we are now observing is only the beginning of the master plan for restructuring the world.
      I am more and more convinced that they play from one center. All the rest are just "bots in the hands of gamers."

    Bayan, it was already.

    I saw this article in RBC and considered it necessary to convey the essence to everyone. And the fact that maybe it was like that - maybe at the same time who wrote. Administrators know better.

    Bendera simply fascists and have nothing to do with real Ukrainians.

    But I strongly disagree ... They are Ukrainians ... Born, raised and live in Ukraine. Just a different level of thinking, perception and education. Yarosh began with charitable sports clubs, where, according to an ad, he recruited boys and girls from dysfunctional families, where not only coaches, but also experienced teachers worked with them. This did not last a year or two, but practically the last 11 years. The first business trips of club members to the same Estonia took place 8 years ago. And now these young guys (as shown by the video and the Air Force investigation) lead dozens and hundreds of newly created ones.

    But where the local SBU and the Ministry of Internal Affairs looked - that’s the question. I am sure that they reported, but the politicians who ruled Ukraine, including Yanukovych, considered this a normal phenomenon. Because all of them, without exception, consistently led Ukraine into the trenches of confrontation with Russia. And the surprised eyes of Yanukovych were surprised not because he was promised personal preferences .... He was shocked by the meticulous performance of all that was prescribed by overseas owners, and he was famously taken and thrown like a used rag .... Although this was a lesson and for ours in the 5 column, see how many dramatically changed the tone.

    Alas, I am far from euphoric, like "We gave the United States a blow!" In my humble opinion, the USA is in chocolate anyway! Here, at a glance:

    (1) Instead of a huge neutral or pro-Russian Ukraine, they will, at a minimum, get the territory of western Ukraine under a missile defense system, their military land and naval bases, with a population that you don’t have to spend money on to maintain hatred of Russia (these Nazi aborigines can take money for the opportunity to fight with Russia)

    (2) AGGRESSOR will again be tagged with a noose in Russia to justify future decisions beneficial to the USA

    (3) The US needs to return the investment in the production of shale hydrocarbons, and they found political a reason to force Europe to make an economically unjustified decision to switch from Russia's energy resources to US energy products (for the USA this is a lot of money, and the growing dependence of Europe on the USA)

    (4) The United States needs conflicts in order to justify the costs of military lobi and its aggressive foreign policy, and it easily received the necessary conflict for little money.

    (5) Russia, instead of investing in its own economy, will be forced to increase its military budget and lose the ability to attract foreign investment, i.e. will slow down its economic growth


    So, unfortunately, IMHO, while the whole world is playing in a casino organized by the USA, which, in any case, remains a winner.

    All hope that Europe will get tired of this, that the BRIC countries will be able to organize an effective counterbalance to the USA and this casino will be covered ...

      Let me disagree with you:
      (1) The more complex the system, the more it is prone to failure, both for internal and external reasons (influences). The Americans already have a crisis of control - this is evident from their throwing like a drunk on the panel ...
      (2) The indicated label is already firmly hanging on their neck. Even schoolchildren in the Congo know about this ... And it is unlikely that Russia's restrained and legally honed policy will correct this physical flaw ... There needs to be something like Hiroshima on our part, and this, as Comrade Sukhov said, is unlikely ...
      (3) All more or less intelligible economists have already calculated the time and financial costs of replacing Russian hydrocarbons. As it turned out, communism in Europe is cheaper and faster to build ... hi
      (4) Do not forget that Nechea is not like just now ... At the Yankees, the state hung on their feet with cores. debt...
      (5) It is still unknown how the difficult international situation will affect the export of capital from Russia - maybe even the flow will weaken, or they will install a thinner filter ... Again for greyhound oligarchs - an oil painting ... angry

    If the author read his own link in the article "double", then everything is described in more detail and the risks for Russia are great regarding the return of debts. And where did the $ 12 billion fine in the gas debt come from? Can he explain? In the same article of RBC, to which the author refers, it is written that, in aggregate, Ukraine owes 10 billion dollars to Russia, taking into account private debts, which cannot be returned "automatically"! So too optimistic I would say.

    I do not know about the double article ..... I wrote below - this is my personal opinion. Calculated taking into account the falling hryvnia exchange rate (it has fallen by 11% since the beginning of the year), as well as according to Standard Bank analyst Timothy Ash, now the debt ratio conditionally exceeds 50%, taking into account the devaluation of the hryvnia and Ukraine's guaranteed obligations of Naftogaz Ukrainy to Gazprom. So it's not 10 billion ... By the way, this is indirectly evidenced by the fact that both Turchynov and Yatsenyuk voiced the funds that Ukraine needs in the amount of 35 billion, which at that time surprised me very much. Combine the facts now available.

    2. If Ukraine gives 17 billion to get something, then she herself needs at least 15-17 billion for life ... That is, the EU or the IMF or the United States or all together should give Ukraine at least 30 billion. Neither the EU nor the United States has such money. You can take money only from Russia or China, no one else has it.

    And then in China, if Russia agrees, and without it, again, China will not give ...

    Comrades, let's smoke only legal drugs! laughing with all the love for the motherland, we are like cancer before Beijing, so far, so that China would be allowed or not to lend someone.
    By the way, there is not a word about this in the original article.

    "1. If I understood correctly, before borrowing from someone, the Ukrainian government is obliged to pay off Russia's debt - this is 2 billion for gas, 3 for Eurobonds and 12 for a fine for gas - a total of 17 billion. Only after that Ukraine can receive tranches and billions from other sources. Therefore, talk of money from the IMF and the US with the EU, taken together, hung in the air. "

    Finally, they did not write contracts on their knees and calculate the guarantees of return. The Americans and the EU will still flutter. Credits in cash are possible, here the former head of the SBU described how the "aid" for the "revolution" came.

    Of course, I'm open to sharing thoughts. drinks

    I am ready to agree that your arguments have a right to exist. And at the same time, they do not cancel the dividends I have indicated, which the United States receives in any case. Those. The USA has made / carries out a combination from which it will obviously win. The only question is what they could have gotten more if it were not for the uncontrollable right-wing sector, which began to change "the performance as the play progresses" ...
