Only talk - about the sanctions that have been introduced, will be introduced, or may not be introduced by our dear Western partners. So far it is obvious that all these point attacks, visas, bills, exclusion from informal clubs and parties are ritually emotional. Type offense for insult.
At the same time, the offended, with anguish in their eyes, stipulate that for the time being ... there is no question of any actual economic sanctions.
“We are well aware that in the case of economic sanctions, our companies will also be affected, because Russia is an important global economy. Therefore, we will work on sanctions that would have the least impact on the outside world,” said Barack Obama.
That's it. This is what the legendary American trader Jim Sinclair says about such possible consequences.
"I firmly believe that the imposition of sanctions against Russia is tantamount to shooting oneself in the leg. You are asking for the creation of a new system of international payments and the introduction of retaliatory sanctions against Western companies, which will be as heavy for the Western powers as any of their actions against Russia," says trader, financial consultant Jim Sinclair (US).
That is, of course, serious severe sanctions will be sensitive for the Russian economy, especially in its current form. But such sanctions hit all the advantages that America is now showing some chances for recovery. In the end, the crisis hit dollar financial system. According to the same Sinclair, they are able to simply bring down.
The so-called “third package” of sanctions threatened by Russia in the event of some possible Russian expansion includes severe restrictions on Russian energy exports, blocking bank accounts and investments, and Russia's disconnection from the global payment system. In essence, an attempt to cut Russia as far as possible from the modern global economy
Note once again: it is extremely difficult to do. All this is painful, almost fatal for the authors of the ideas themselves and therefore extremely unlikely. But! Wait a minute! Who do these sanctions beat in Russia? For those elements in economics and politics that are maximally built into that very global system. First of all, for those forces and groups in the establishment and the opposition, which are completely focused on the West. They just block the oxygen. They do not even have to push - they wither.
In fact, this is a rare chance to get rid of our "fifth column". Maybe it's time?
