Vladimir Putin: Russia cannot single-handedly feed Ukraine’s 45-million



The “straight line” with Vladimir Putin was shorter than in previous years, but in some places richer. There were fewer inclusions from places with specific questions for individual regions: although, of course, it was impossible to bypass the Far East, which was so hard hit by the flood, and Sochi, where the amazing Olympiad took place. But the main thing, of course, is Ukraine and the Crimea. It is now interested in all. And there were several statements that after the end of the “Direct Line” “Vesti on Saturday” asked the President to translate it.

- Vladimir Vladimirovich, you said for the first time that after all, the Russian military stood behind the forces of self-defense of the Crimea.

- I already hinted at it.

- Has the rain of awards already spilled? Or will we never know who it was?

- I think we will not find out in the near future, but of course there will be state awards.

- You understand how it is deployed in the West? Like, the referendum was held at the barrel of Russian automata?

- No, I know, and deliberately spoke about it, that if we are honest and objective, then it will become clear to everyone that it’s impossible to drive people out of the house at gunpoint and force them to go to the polling station to vote, and turnout is 83%.

- The same applies to a possible change-over question when they listen to your argument that you can’t quit Tanks on civilians. They will also recall the counter-terrorism operations in the North Caucasus. They will say: "There is also an anti-terrorist operation."

- The difference is huge. It lies in the fact that in the North Caucasus we are faced with the aggression of international terrorism. In fact, they were formed and well-prepared gangs that were supplied and armed from abroad. This is a big difference.

- It is rumored that Viktor Yanukovych may appear on Easter in Ukraine. It's true?

- It is necessary to ask him.

- You "threw" one very interesting calculation: May 17 you will return to the topic of payment for gas for Ukraine, that is, eight days before the elections announced there. Does this mean that you acknowledge the election of 25 May or will you prepare a surprise for them?

- It is generally not connected with the election. We do not associate the economy with the political process in Ukraine. We just had to get money for the supplied gas in March of 7 in April of the current year. We did not wait for them. This is 525 million dollars. Zero! This, by the way, in accordance with the contract, at the lowest price, with all the discounts. But, as we agreed, if Ukraine does not pay current payments, we turn to the original pricing formula. Today, in accordance with the contract, it is 485 dollars per thousand cubic meters. We could do it right now, meaning even the accumulated debt of 2,2 billion dollars, but we will not do it. We do not want to undermine either the Ukrainian economy or question the reliability of transit to Europe, therefore we urge all European countries that are interested in supporting the Ukrainian economy to join the process of helping Ukraine and develop measures aimed at financing the budget. Ready to wait another month. But we cannot wait forever, we cannot shift the entire tax burden on the maintenance of the 45-million country to the Russian budget and the Russian taxpayer.

- Maybe start selling Russian oil and gas for rubles from Ukraine?

- By and large, it does not matter much - anyway, Ukraine will need to take these rubles somewhere.

- You told an amazing history about how the then Danish Prime Minister Rasmussen visited you.

- This is not he came to me - I went to Denmark.

- It turns out, recorded this conversation.

- Yes.

- And are you surely familiar with the future new NATO Secretary General, Mr. Stoltenberg? This is the former Norwegian premier.

- We have very good relations, including personal ones. This is a very serious, responsible person. Let's see how the relationship will develop in its new capacity.

- Will relations between Russia and the West change by the end of the year?

- It depends not only on us, but also on our partners. I believe that there is nothing that would prevent the normalization of these relations and adequate cooperation.

      It’s cheaper not to supply gas to Ukraine for free, but to join New Russia to Russia.
      It will cost much cheaper than releasing gas to the wind of the Maidan.

        And how much, dear man, will such a pleasure in Russia cost? This is the first, second, but there is confidence that some military men will not shoot in the back of our military, because they are there. Third, and perhaps most importantly, ALL the rest of Ukraine will immediately join NATU. And we will have on the western border a hostile state, not comparable with the Baltic in terms of aggression.

            De jure, yes. De facto they spit on it. Examples Romania-Ukraine (Black Sea shelf), Georgia-Russia, before the 08,08,08 war. Estonia still has not resolved a territorial dispute with us.

              Romania made a claim and won the trial, there was no conflict as such, the border with Estonia was not defined, again there is no conflict, and Georgia is not a NATO member until 08.08.08 or after

                Dva. Romania had territorial claims, just like Estonia came to us, and not an agreement on signing borders. Is the Pechersky district a disputed territory for you?
                Already in the middle of the 1990, the border treaty between Russia and Estonia was ready for signing, but at some point Russia began to delay the signing, hoping to complicate Estonia’s accession to NATO, since one of the requirements for new members of the bloc is the existence of undeniable external borders, backed by international agreements. However, the unsettled borders with Russia did not prevent the Baltic states from becoming NATO members. After that, delaying the signing of border treaties lost all meaning for Russia.
                They wanted to invite Georgia to NATO, because they did not take it, this is the second.

                  As far as I remember, this region belongs to Russia, NATO will fight with the aggressor, but there will probably be enough brains not to allow Estonia to take this region by force, this is ridiculous, and Georgia has problems with the territory for 20 years, they would never have accepted it and would not accept it, just Russia was dripping on the nerves.

          First, it will cost Russia a new industrial and mining region. Moreover, industry is already working for Russia.
          The second one. With arrows in the back there are polite guys in green.
          The third.
          Nobody can enter into nature, if there is a conflict on its territory with a neighboring state (I say it in my own words, for the simple reason) But nature can also reign on its own rules, everything is natural to it.
          Fourth.
          Put on the share and enter the payment for oil and gas in rubles.

            Nice man
            The first, as far as I remember, all these enterprises belong to certain people, will Russia nationalize them? I doubt very much that no one needs such a precedent, let alone the capitalists of the whole world about "unite.
            The second, i.e. you propose to shoot people without trial, and if by law, how many will have time to shed blood.
            Third, the territorial dispute between Turkey and Greece did not prevent both from being accepted.
            Fourth and most interesting, how long will it take to switch to paying for minerals in rubles, and where can others just take such a ruble mass?
            Not everything is so simple, although I strongly agree for the part of Ukraine joining Russia and not only the southeast, but also the Poltava, Chernihiv, Sumy and some other areas.

              To ensure Russia's national security, we simply need to actually nationalize oil companies, albeit in a mild form, by acquiring a controlling stake. Moreover, such examples are already available (Rosneft).
              As for admission to NATO, they have declared principles, and there are vital interests. When principles conflict with interests, then principles, of course, are pushed aside.
              The transition to payment in rubles is possible, but the ruble is not very resistant to speculation, so they are afraid to switch to it. And so - buy rubles for dollars on the interbank market - and pay off. Especially if you stimulate discounted purchases for rubles.
              NATO in Ukraine is our nightmare. Only the events of recent years show that Putin has already outlined the boundaries of the alliance's spread - these are the borders of the Union (except for the Baltic states) and is firmly on its own.

          2) Ukraine should not be included in Russia at all. Ukraine should be reborn as Kievan Rus, as part of the Russian World, independent but fraternal. And without a stupid anthem about "has not died yet." PPT is complete. It's humiliation to sing about your country.

          In general, now, Ukrainians alone must explain to others that the uprising against the junta and against the Natsiks is the same thing that their ancestors did at the time - the Zaporozhye Cossacks, having thrown off the power of foreigners who destroyed the culture (through the union) and the henchmen that worked for them.

          Accession to NATO primarily leads to the transition of the new member's army to NATO standards, i.e. on the transition of small arms under the NATO cartridge, the restructuring of the frequencies of military radio electronics, etc. In the case of the Baltic states (probably saw a parade of a powerful Latvian army), this is a penny and the alliance did not cost anything at all when they do not have their own military aircraft, tanks (one where - then in Lithuania) and of course the fleet, but actually the army is simply not there. Let me remind you that now there is a systemic crisis in the EU and everything rests on Germany and only on Germany, but the old woman is already starting to creak. In general, the armament of Ukraine and the creation of an army, the EU simply will not pull, even discarding all the possible advantages with the approach to our political and economic centers. Even in the alliance, a strict division of labor was outlined, in particular, the role of cannon fodder was assigned to the psheks, who had proved their loyalty to the Russophobic issue several hundred years earlier. Do you also think in Galicia all such Russophobes are ready to lay down their heads in a righteous battle with the Muscovites? By no means, a noisy aggressive group of hereditary Bandera shortcomings operates there, which determine the course of history, but the voting in the elections shows that the majority is far from them (they vote for Yulia, not Yushcha-Bandera). And in the army of the alliance such rabble as the activists of the "Rvanovo Sphincter" simply will not be accepted, these people are not able to maintain discipline and order - they are a gang of robbers, moreover, without any useful profession. The army now is highly qualified specialists, and banderna is not even suitable for "meat".

    That is a question for Ukraine. Where will she get the money to pay for gas?
    Europe and the US are more likely to bite their tails, but will not give money for gas, knowing that Russia will take them.
    This is equivalent to having just been raped.
    If they wanted to have a problem with Ukraine - chew, but you still pay money. No matter how muddy it is, capitalism lives by the formula: "Money-commodity-money."

    independence, the population is to blame. You can talk endlessly and a lot,
    but for today, the country is bankrupt and its future is unclear.

    future state of the left bank, will remain independent or enter

    I remember how in 1991 at the Republican (then) stadium at the Dynamo-Kiev-Barcelona match, leaflets were handed out (in Russian!) With a table comparing industrial production indicators in Ukraine and Great Britain, the numbers there were approximately equal. Well and, accordingly, the conclusion why we live worse than the British, because we feed the Russians. By the way, it was not impressed. And where did all this go? I'm already disgusted to hear the whining of the Svidomo, about the fact that Russia prevents them from living, all 23 years of independence, like these 23 years were "fake" independence, but now we will finally break the bonds of "mos ... th occupation" and will live together with Europe, so that the Russians are jealous.

    Will relations between Russia and the West change before the end of the year?

    - It depends not only on us, but also on our partners. I believe that there is nothing that would prevent the normalization of these relations and adequate cooperation.

    A joke in the subject perfectly illustrates the situation:
    So, a car drives up to the courtyard yard, passengers get out, the hohol sits in the courtyard, in the middle of the courtyard is a well, near which a hefty dog ​​sits. Passengers ask:
    - Master, can I get some water?
    - It’s possible, why not, there’s a well!
    - So there is a dog.
    - Well then!
    And the Kiev junta in Geneva turned out “well,” it was only necessary in this anecdote to replace the West, passengers with the junta, and the dog with Russia.

    Volodya did well, although he pleased me, I thought I would not live to see the time when Russia would begin its self-serving policy!

    Yes, indeed the President with a capital letter. And he held the Olympics, and the Crimea joined, and quite adequate and reasonable person. I am not a big fan, but there’s no one else to vote for! At least for now.

    - Vladimir Vladimirovich, you said for the first time that after all, the Russian military stood behind the forces of self-defense of the Crimea.


    - I already hinted at it.

    - Has the rain of awards already spilled? Or will we never know who it was?

    - I think we will not find out in the near future, but of course there will be state awards.

    And no one needs to know about this, such people do not need advertising ...

    And how much, dear man, will such a pleasure in Russia cost? This is the first, second, but there is confidence that some military men will not shoot in the back of our military, because they are there. Third, and perhaps most importantly, ALL the rest of Ukraine will immediately join NATU. And we will have on the western border a hostile state, not comparable with the Baltic in terms of aggression.

    First, it will cost Russia a new industrial and mining region. Moreover, industry is already working for Russia.
    The second one. With arrows in the back there are polite guys in green.
    The third.
    Nobody can enter into nature, if there is a conflict on its territory with a neighboring state (I say it in my own words, for the simple reason) But nature can also reign on its own rules, everything is natural to it.
    Fourth.
    Put on the share and enter the payment for oil and gas in rubles.
    Point by point:
    No. 1. "new industrial-mining region" MUST half of the debts of the independent state of Ukraine, since the population of this region is about 20000000 people (out of 45 million of the total population of Ukraine), which is ruinous for our country.
    # 2. "With arrows in the back, there are Polite guys in green." Have you looked at the map, WHAT are these areas ??? Where will there be so many "polite" ones to block all cities, villages, roads, etc.? Or do you think that ordinary civilian cops can fight the saboteurs? So I dare to notify that there is not enough preparation, not only to detain the group, but at least to UNDERSTAND what they are doing and how, committing a sabotage ...
    3. "No one can enter Natu if there is a conflict with a neighboring state on its territory", in order to HELP with weapons, instructors, BOMBING EVERYTHING, etc., you do not need to join NATO at all ...
    4. "Take care of dolyar and introduce payments for oil and gas in rubles." Have you read the RF CONSTITUTION? Maybe you've heard something about Art. fifteen:
    "4. The generally recognized principles and norms of international law and international treaties of the Russian Federation are an integral part of its legal system. If other rules are established by an international treaty of the Russian Federation than stipulated by law, then the rules of the international treaty apply"?
    At the same time, you heard something about the Federal Law of July 10, 2002 No. 86-FZ ("On the Central Bank of the Russian Federation (Bank of Russia)"), which is NOT subordinate to the Russian government and does not allow buying anything without first selling it all for dollars ...
    So BEFORE doing anything, you will have to change the Constitution of the Russian Federation and the Law on the Central Bank. Only after that it is possible to "send" America (on a pedestrian erotic journey), together with dollars, and switch to trade with other countries for national currencies.

    from the independent side, the whole story of gas is an outright blackmail with the support of Europe. Moreover, the blackmail is of Europe itself. It will accuse Russia all the same. Because Russia will accuse Russia. Although everyone knows that the problem is in Ukraine
    I am not going to teach, but I have to remind you that the names of countries are written with a BIG capital.
    Please take an interest in how much Russia sells gas and oil to Germany, France and other countries, perhaps this will turn out to be unexpected for you (compared to the price of the same gas, for Ukraine) ... At the expense of blackmail - Russia has the right to sell its resources at a price that other countries are able to pay so much that it suits Russia. So far, they have nothing to replace our energy resources with and we, of course, are using it now (to make it clear who is blackmailing anyone). Another thing is that Europe itself needed to be reminded that living with Russia in peace and harmony is FAVORABLE rather than going to a direct confrontation. Ukraine, however, will have to learn where its place is in order to minimize the results of its awkward demarches in relation to Russia in the future.

    I dare to recall that the ALL population of Russia (according to the latest census) does not exceed 145000000 billion people and an additional burden of 45 million will hit the Russian budget very hard.
    In addition, what can you say about the DEBTS of the "nezalezhnaya", do you also suggest that the Russian Federation pay them (if you decided to annex Ukraine)?
    What will be the reaction of ALL countries, even our allies, if we first declared about the "territorial integrity of the borders", and then COMPLETELY take over a foreign country? etc., that is, there are a lot of nuances that cannot be solved so easily.
