Putin's interview with leading Chinese media


On the eve of his visit to the People’s Republic of China, where the APEC forum economic leaders will meet, Vladimir Putin gave an interview to leading Chinese media.

QUESTION: A regular APEC summit will be held in Beijing soon. How does Russia evaluate the role of this union? What does the Russian side expect from the upcoming meeting? How do you think Russia and China can strengthen their cooperation in this forum by promoting peace, stability and prosperity in the Asia-Pacific region?

V.PUTIN: The ongoing development of APEC over a quarter of a century is convincing evidence of the relevance of this authoritative association, within which the general “rules of the game” in the trade and economic sphere in the APR space are agreed.

It is important to note that all decisions developed within the framework of the forum are made on the principles of mutual respect, taking into account each other’s interests, what is called the “APEC spirit”. In modern conditions, when some countries prefer to act in the international arena, resorting to methods of political, economic, and often pressure, the role of APEC as an effective coordinating mechanism in building a new regional architecture of relations is simply irreplaceable.

Russia is actively involved in the work of APEC. The full-scale involvement of our country in regional integration processes contributes to the development of the national economy and social sphere, and contributes to the solution of the tasks of raising the regions of Siberia and the Far East.

The next meeting of the leaders of the APEC economies 10 – 11 in November in Beijing will certainly become one of the central events in the life of the APR this year. As chairman of APEC-2014, China has prepared a solid package of initiatives. So, it is planned to adopt a roadmap to promote the creation of an Asia-Pacific free trade zone. A plan of concrete steps has been developed to strengthen the complex interconnectedness of the region, promote innovative progress and structural reforms.

I would like to draw attention to the continuity of today's agenda in relation to the issues that we proposed for discussion in Vladivostok in 2012. I believe that this reflects the coincidence of Russian and Chinese interests in the joint development of the region in order to achieve comprehensive, sustainable and innovative growth.

We are committed to the traditionally close, constructive interaction with the Chairman of the People’s Republic of China, Xi Jinping, in the course of the forthcoming discussions, as well as in the implementation of the summit’s decisions. I am convinced that the APEC leaders meeting in Beijing will make a significant contribution to the further build-up of an equal and mutually beneficial partnership in the region.

QUESTION: At present, Russian-Chinese relations are developing particularly dynamically. The parties have achieved an important breakthrough in cooperation in the gas sector, and events are successfully taking place within the framework of the Years of Youth Exchanges. How do you assess the development of relations between Russia and the PRC at this stage? How is the Russian side ready to deepen the relations of a comprehensive strategic partnership with China?

V.PUTIN: Strengthening ties with the PRC is Russia's foreign policy priority. Today, our relations have reached a new level of comprehensive equitable trusting partnership and strategic interaction, are the best for their entire life. history. We well understand that such cooperation is extremely important both for Russia and, I am sure, for China.

In international affairs, we are united by the proximity or coincidence of positions on major global and regional issues. Our countries effectively interact at multilateral sites, closely coordinating their actions to resolve pressing international problems.

Russian-Chinese relations have become the most important factor in ensuring the foreign policy interests of the two countries in the 21st century, playing a prominent role in shaping a just, harmonious, secure world pattern. At the same time, our bilateral relations have a serious prospect of further progressive development.

I would especially like to note that today our countries face similar tasks. First of all, it is improving infrastructure and stimulating high-tech sectors. In many ways, our industry priorities coincide: energy saving and energy efficiency, the development of new information technologies, transport, nuclear energy, space, environmental protection, the production of modern medicines and medical equipment.

Noticeably intensified cooperation in the energy sector. An oil pipeline from Russia to China has been built and is operational, and agreements have been concluded on increasing the supply of oil. In accordance with the agreements reached, energy exports to the PRC are growing, joint ventures have been established for the exploration and production of oil and coal in Russia. Chinese companies have joined gas production projects on the Russian Arctic shelf. The construction of a large joint refinery in China. Successfully implemented projects in the field of peaceful atom.

The unconditional breakthrough of the current year is a large-scale gas agreement. In May, we agreed on natural gas supplies to China via the eastern route. The contract is for 30 years and involves the supply of 38 billions of cubic meters of gas per year. This is the largest long-term deal in the history of bilateral relations and the entire world trade. In addition, we have a mutual understanding on the opening of the western supply corridor. Many of the technical and commercial parameters of this project have already been agreed upon, which provides a good basis for reaching final agreements.

For Russia and China, countries with rich traditions and original culture, humanitarian ties are of particular importance. In the course of unique projects: national Years (in 2006 - the Year of Russia in China, in 2007 - the Year of China in Russia), Years of Russian and Chinese (2009 – 2010), Years of Tourism of Russia and China (2012– 2013 years.) - Our contacts in education, science, culture, tourism, sports, and health care have significantly expanded.

After the successful holding of the National Years, we approved a list of the most successful and high-profile events. Now they are held on a regular basis. In particular, we are talking about economic, political, and scientific forums, tourism fairs, cultural days and film festivals, rectors' forums and educational exhibitions of Russian and Chinese universities, youth gatherings, and sports competitions. The ten-year Action Plan for the development of Russian-Chinese cooperation in the humanitarian sphere, adopted in December 2012, is being consistently implemented.

In 2014 – 2015, a new large-scale interstate project is being implemented - Years of friendly youth exchanges between Russia and China. In its program as a whole about 600 events. As part of the opening ceremony of the Years in March of this year, the first performance of a joint Russian-Chinese youth symphony orchestra and student choir under the direction of V. A. Gergiev took place in St. Petersburg.

QUESTION: Next year marks the 70 anniversary of the Victory over fascism. Russia and China will hold a series of events dedicated to this event. What, in your opinion, does the joint celebration of this date by the two countries matter for maintaining historical memory, suppressing attempts to deny the results of the Second World War and promoting global peace?

V.PUTIN: 9 May 2015 in Russia will mark a significant anniversary - the 70 anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War. September 3 2015 will be held in Beijing on the occasion of the 70 anniversary of the end of World War II and the victory of the Chinese people who expelled the invaders from their land.

During the talks in Shanghai in May of this year, we and the President of the People's Republic of China, Xi Jinping, agreed that we would celebrate these memorable dates together, which was recorded in the Joint Statement.

During the war years, the Soviet Union and China were allies, fighting shoulder to shoulder against a common enemy. Our countries with honor passed the severe tests, bore the brunt of the resistance to the aggressors. At the final stage of the war tens of thousands of our compatriots gave their lives for the liberation of Northeast China. I would like to thank the Chinese friends for the careful attitude to the memory of the heroes, to the graves of the fallen, war memorials.

The blood-clad fighting fraternity and mutual assistance of the peoples of our countries laid a solid foundation for modern Russian-Chinese relations. Today, Russia and China are interested in strengthening global stability and developing broad cooperation based on international law and the central role of the UN. We oppose a return to ideological confrontation in world affairs and strongly condemn any attempts to falsify the history of the Second World War.

I am confident that the upcoming celebration of the anniversary of Victory in Russia and in China will further strengthen bilateral understanding and cooperation.

QUESTION:
What factors, in your opinion, led to a drop in world oil prices? Can this process have a significant impact on the Russian economy? How does the Russian side cope with its negative impact?

V.PUTIN: Of course, the objective reason for the decline in world oil prices was the slowdown in economic growth, and hence energy consumption in a number of countries. In addition, both strategic and commercial oil reserves in developed countries are at historical highs. Innovations in the technology of oil production, which led to the emergence of new volumes of hydrocarbons in regional markets, are also having an impact.

At the same time, the political component in oil prices is also always present. Moreover, in some crisis moments, there is a feeling that in the pricing of energy resources, politics prevails.

Another negative factor is the lack of a clear direct link between the physical markets of oil and the financial sites where trading is conducted. At the same time, derivatives are widely used, which multiply the volatility of oil prices. This state of affairs, unfortunately, creates the conditions for speculative actions and, as a result, for price manipulation depending on someone's interests.

Of course, we cannot ignore the emerging conjuncture in the oil market, taking into account the important role of revenues from fuel and energy products for the budget revenue. The steps we take are complex and long-term. They provide for further diversification of the structure and sources of growth of the Russian economy, as well as reducing excessive dependence on the European market of hydrocarbons, including by increasing exports of oil and gas to the APR countries. At the same time, they intend to optimize budget expenditures, monetary and tax policies.

It is obvious that the risks associated with the new situation in the global oil market affect a very wide range of states and companies. Therefore, we maintain an ongoing dialogue on this issue with leading producers and consumers of energy resources.

QUESTION: Recently, significant progress was made towards the establishment of the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Some experts believe that Washington is seeking to counter the new APEC union in the light of the growing influence in the region of Russia and China. How do you assess the prospects for APEC in the event of a TTP?

V.PUTIN: The conclusion of regional free trade agreements of various formats is one of the global trends. It is not by chance that this practice has become widespread in the APR, which is becoming the center of global economic and political activity. Today, there are already about 70 agreements of this kind here, a number of projects are still underway. These include the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the Comprehensive Regional Economic Partnership.

Russia is interested in deepening regional economic integration. At the same time, we presume that free trade agreements should not fragment, but complement the multilateral trading system, promote its consolidation and increase interconnectedness. It is also impossible to oppose, pushing together regional associations. It is necessary to build such agreements on the basis of openness, equality, taking into account the needs of each economy. Regional integration should be transparent and ensure the exchange of information between all negotiation processes.

We pay particular attention to this approach in the course of work on the integration project of priority for us - the Eurasian Economic Union. The parameters and principles of this association are transparent and implemented in full compliance with the rules and regulations of the World Trade Organization.

It is still not easy to assess what is actually achieved in the framework of the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Promotion of this initiative is carried out in private, even for business and the public of the contracting states themselves, not to mention other countries. Over the past five years, during which negotiations are underway, periodic statements of success are then refuted. The last time was before the APEC Summit on Bali in November 2013. According to reports, it’s rather a matter of agreement to continue the negotiation process, which has been frozen for more than a year. Terms of its renewal have not yet been announced.

It is obvious that the Trans-Pacific Partnership is another attempt by the United States to build a profitable regional economic cooperation architecture. At the same time, I believe that the absence of such major regional players as Russia and China among its members is unlikely to allow building effective trade and economic cooperation.

The multilateral system of economic relations in the APR can be strong only if the interests of all the states of the region are taken into account. This approach is reflected in the draft Beijing road map to promote the formation of the Asia-Pacific free trade zone, which will be discussed at the upcoming meeting of the APEC leaders.

            Although I’m not a DRA, will I throw a couple of cents, Mona?

            - loans (which, incidentally, must be returned. Inevitably.) Russian companies took .. in the currency .. including and in dollars
            - it is impossible to re-credit now in Western banks - sanctions
            - a question: where to get dollars? The answer is in the domestic market for rubles.

            We guess three times - will the ruble weaken or grow stronger from this?

            PS: It is clear that this is not the only reason. They just got the screams that "it's all to blame .. (no matter who, but always - someone alone".

            Everything is much more complicated in reality.

        Ruling Russia, rules the world and this is only the beginning ...

        That is unlikely. Let's take a sober look at things. To control the world, you need to have a management tool. In Russia today there is no such tool. He is in the USA. Dollar. And no matter how much we declare our significance, the facts speak against it.
        Our economy is not sovereign. The ruble depends on the dollar and, moreover, the Russian government cannot effectively influence not only the rate of its currency, but also such key parameters as the money supply in the country, discount rate, inflation rate, etc. And without being able to influence this, how can we say that our ministers manage something in our country? Maybe someone else controls?
        Have you ever wondered why in the states they print trillions of nothing more than unsecured paper, merge it at zero percent, and there is no inflation there? And we are limiting our money supply, our rate is 9%, the trade balance is in positive territory, and real inflation at ten percent and the ruble / dollar exchange rate for half a year collapsed by 50%? What kind of government are you talking about?
        We have not been crushed so far only because Russia over the past 15 years has been very tightly integrated into the American world system and it is very difficult today for us to quickly replace someone. For example, 50 percent of all wood in Europe is our wood. 80 percent of global titanium is our titanium. Well, oil and gas and other gifts of nature. And yet we are a large market, and this is important.
        Today we are a significant part of the Western economic system, because we cannot be demolished at a time. It is not difficult, but not profitable. And note, we sell all our resources for dollars and we keep our savings not even in dollars, but in treasuries, American receipts. So why destroy the one who follows the rules set by the owner? If a serf has gone too far, it can be punished (what we feel today) but to kill is wastefulness.

        Now for the good. The ruling elite of Russia does not like being the serf of the West. It is not profitable and does not really allow you to earn a LOT. Yes, and being a slave, there is always a risk that the owner will simply take away everything acquired by back-breaking labor. Cyprus is an example. Even transferring assets to Hong Kong won't help much. That will decide tomorrow pen.dosy change the dollar for some sort of "amero" and that's it. Start from scratch. And they can simply block accounts due to the "lack of democracy" and write letters. Therefore, for ten years now, work has been underway to undermine the Western system. We ourselves, of course, we will not master this, but we have many supporters and the main one is China. Here, in conjunction with a number of large "developing countries", we can really deprive the states of the instrument for managing the world - the dollar. And there is movement in this direction. But very carefully. Whatever the owner has nailed. Step by step, there is movement. And there is a result. The states today are no longer the states of ten years ago. They are weaker. But they can still destroy any of their slaves.

        Now about military power. I thought for a long time why it is so urgent and even forced, Russia is rebuilding its Armed Forces. Well, not for a war with the West, after all. There is no chance. Not militarily, but financially. Well, except for mutual atomic annihilation. So that's it. Only one conclusion suggests itself. After the destruction of the instrument of world domination, chaos and anarchy will inevitably reign on a planetary scale. And now, to counteract this world chaos, so that it does not destroy our country, a new army is being hastily created. Modern, well-armed, capable of operating quickly and efficiently. And not only we are creating. All countries that are in the "topic" do the same. This means that a big BOOM is not far off. But this does not mean that we will rule the world. We will just cease to be "junior partners" of the Western elites. Which is also not enough.

          so it may be necessary to break this system, the dependence of our Russian economy on dollar pressure, because the American economy is bursting at the seams, they are lying everywhere, the US authorities manipulate statistics by falsifying data on GDP, jobs, inflation, incomes, and soon This massive scam will unfold. This statement was made by billionaire Paul Singer, head of the hedge fund Elliott Management.
          In his letter to investors following the results of the third quarter, Singer called into question the reliability of the data on the US economy published by the American authorities. A copy of the letter was made available to Bloomberg.

          Paul Singer, CEO of Elliot Management

          No one knows when reality will prevail over rhetoric, lies, fake statistics, imaginary hopes, fabricated prices and these tiresome dudes pretending to be world leaders. No one can predict how long the authorities will get away with this supposed economic growth, false money, false financial stability, fake jobs, and understated inflation and income figures. In our opinion, confidence, especially when it is unwarranted, can quickly evaporate. And when confidence is lost, it can lead to serious, dramatic and simultaneous consequences for a whole range of markets and sectors of the economy. "Note this says the American billionaire. It is worth noting that suspicions about embellishment of economic statistics in the United States in the post-crisis period have significantly increased and moved from discharge conspiracy theories to the next level.

          In 2014, the US authorities "made a mistake" with their estimate of the GDP indicator for the first quarter by almost 3%, initially publishing the figures at 0,1%, and then revising them to -2,9%. Last year, the NY Post published a study , in which it was stated that the authorities deliberately overestimated the indicators for the US labor market in order to show the success of the Obama administration and thereby tip the scales in his favor in the 2012 presidential elections. Perhaps knowing this, the leaders of China and Russia are creating new alliances BRIGS, SCO, Ates, payments are made in rubles and yuns for the delivered goods.

In accordance with the agreements reached, the export of energy resources to China is growing, joint ventures have been set up for the exploration and production of oil and coal in Russia. Chinese companies joined the projects for gas production on the Russian Arctic shelf. Construction of a large joint oil refinery in China was launched. Projects in the field of peaceful nuclear energy are being successfully implemented. "
      Are you sure that this will lead to the strengthening of the Russian economy and the development of our industry?

    "The fiscal schemes of thousands of corporations, which allowed them to save billions of euros, were revealed in Luxembourg. Russian companies - Gazprom, Sberbank, Evraz, Alfa Group - also resorted to the services of the Grand Duchy, which allowed them to legally evade taxes in Russia , follows from documents leaked to the Western press "

    For whom are these tax evasions?
    Funny if that's all.
    The same double standards - politics and your own pocket.

    Ugly it turns out.
    Putin, as a "boss", should be responsible for such tax evasion of state corporations.
    If everything is really so with Gazprom, etc. - it may be disinformation, but the representative of Gazprom seems to have said - we did not violate anything!

    At the 22nd meeting of the APEC Forum, Putin and Xi Jingping will "synchronize their watches" on two important issues ... One of them, Putin said: "The Trans-Pacific Partnership is another attempt by the United States to build a beneficial architecture of regional economic cooperation. At the same time, I believe that the absence among its participants such major regional players as Russia and China will hardly allow building effective trade and economic interaction "... The second problem was outlined by Mikhail Delyagin:" Now Europe and the United States want to profit from Russia again in order to prolong the life of their own societies of unrestrained consumption. The main goal is still the same - to destroy a potential competitor or completely subjugate him, after which the Russians will be prepared for the "honorable" role of cannon fodder and ramming against China. A bit like the Ukrainians are now ramming against Russia. "
