Gathered and talked. About Russia

85
On March 14, the foreign ministers of the EU member states were going to brainstorm. The subject of discussion was chosen Russia. It has become fashionable to talk about Russia, about sanctions and “normalizing relations” in the EU. Eurobusiness incurs multibillion-dollar losses due to sanctions, capitalists complain, budgets receive less taxes. And therefore, the foreign affairs agencies of a dependent Europe, acting with an eye on the overseas hegemon, would like to somehow get closer to the Russians so as not to quarrel with the said hegemon. Well, they began to formally converge: the ministerial meeting adopted five principles of the EU policy on building relations with the Russian Federation.

At the planned meeting of the EU Council in Brussels, the foreign ministers of the European Union states approved five principles of “building” relations with Russia, reports TASS.

"All 28 member countries unanimously adopted the five principles of the European Union policy for building relations with Russia," the agency’s senior representative for foreign affairs and security policy Federica Mogherini quotes the agency. According to her, the discussion showed the unity of all states of the union.

What basic principles were adopted at the meeting?

Principle number one: “the full implementation of the Minsk agreements as a key moment in our relations” (in quotes, the words Mogherini are given).

Principle number two: “strengthening relations with our Eastern partners and other neighbors” (talking about the continuation of Eastern Partnership projects aimed at Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, TASS notes).

Principle number three: ensuring “EU sustainability, particularly in the area of ​​energy security”.

Principle number four: the development of cooperation with the Russian Federation on specific vectors of the international agenda, of particular interest to the EU. The need for cooperation with Russia on international issues (Iran, Syria, the Middle East region, migrants, the fight against terrorism, climate change, etc.) was noted.

Principle number five: “support of the civil society of the Russian Federation and relations between people in Russia and the EU”.

As for the extension of EU sanctions against Russia, this issue 14 March was not discussed. Nevertheless, TASS writes, the head of European diplomacy did not manage to avoid this topic: the journalists insisted.

Mogherini said that the issue of economic sanctions "will be discussed at the EU summit in the summer" (talking about the EU-Russia summer summit in June 2016 of the year).

As noted by "Russian newspaper"Europeans have long lost their unity in the assessment of relations between Brussels and Moscow. A number of European states are opposed to restrictive measures against Russia, and against the “automatism” of their extension. Such a position was voiced by the representatives of Italy, France, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Austria, Slovakia, Greece, Cyprus. Meanwhile, there is in the EU a group of states “with a strong Russophobic lobby”: they insist on continuing the current course in relations with Russia.

However, in Brussels they know that the EU’s damage from sanctions against the Russian Federation only in 2015 was expressed in the sum of 50 billion euros.

The Kremlin suffered a “period of anger”, and now it is waiting for the EU to decide on the conditions for future cooperation, says analyst Gevorg Mirzayan ("Expert"). In the best case for Russia and the EU, the author believes, we can talk about the development of common rules of the game in the post-Soviet space and a clear definition of red lines: the parties do not overstep for them.

Probably, these rules of the game will be the filling of the “Five Principles of the EU Policy towards Russia”, which were voiced by Federica Mogherini, the expert notes. He also points out that in the five principles of the EU “there are no unacceptable requirements or conditions for Russia, in particular, regarding the return of Crimea to Ukraine”.

Mirzayan’s special attention was drawn to the fifth principle concerning “support of the civil society of the Russian Federation and relations between people in Russia and the EU”. And indeed, it is curious: how will such a point be interpreted in Brussels?

Mirzayan recalls that Expert magazine has repeatedly written that the EU should liberalize visa regime with the Russian Federation for such support of relations. As for the "support of civil society", then you need ... to lift the sanctions. After all, they are damaging the Russian middle class as the basis of civil society, and at the same time the European image.

The expert does not exclude that the euro sanctions "may be canceled in the foreseeable future." No wonder Mogherini promised to hold a political discussion among EU leaders before the June summit. “Actually,” the analyst writes, “she had nothing else to do: the ministers of a number of EU countries (in particular, Italy and Hungary) openly stated that they are not going to renew sanctions automatically.”

It is unlikely that the European Union, we will add, dare “unilaterally” (that is, without the approval of the United States) not to extend the sanctions automatically. There are no suitable conditions for this: the hegemon of the refusal of sanctions will clearly not approve.

2 March 2016 US administration extended for the year of the sanctions against Russia "because of the events in Ukraine."

Russia responded to this with a comment from the Information and Press Department of the Foreign Ministry. In the document it is said: “It is regrettable that the United States continues to play with enthusiasm in sanctions against Russia, and for two years now they have been trying to ward off responsibility for the coup d'état in Ukraine, and now for the dire consequences of the rule of their Kiev clients. It is clear that the settlement of the Ukrainian crisis, which has stalled because of Kiev’s unwillingness to fulfill the Minsk agreements, doesn’t help at all, but it has a devastating effect on Russian-American relations. ”

However, Washington is not going to stop there. In the evening, 15 March, it became aware of the new hegemon sanctions plans.

The State Department is considering the introduction of new sanctions against Russia because of the Crimea, reports RIA News".

The State Department will study what other sanctions can be imposed against Russia because of the “annexation of the Crimea,” said Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland.

“We will continue to study what we can still do,” she said at the Senate hearing.

According to her, notes "Lenta.ru"Washington "will never recognize the occupation of the Crimea and its entry into Russia, and the sanctions will remain." In addition, the United States is “concerned about human rights in Crimea, especially minorities,” and the militarization of the peninsula.

As we see, in the current conditions it is very difficult to count even on any kind of easing of the policy of US sanctions, not to mention their lifting. As for the European Union, he always followed Washington in foreign policy. And even if “obstinate” states like Hungary or Greece even spoke out against sanctions in due time, they somehow continued to support them. After all, to extend the sanctions regime, we need the votes of all EU members, without exception. Is it true that Brussels will break up with Washington in the summer? The legend is fresh, but it's hard to believe.

        Moreover, we ourselves need to impose sanctions against the United States and Europe! These are the enemies of Russia who are making plans to destroy us completely and settle in our vast expanses of Siberia! In the end, the world did not come together in the West, but there are friends in Cuba, Venezuela, Brazil, good relations with Vietnam! And it's time for the president to change to a domestic car, recently, by the way, a deep modernization of the "loaf" was done, and the finished limousine was slightly modified! Well, it's time for Dima to throw out his iPhones and switch to domestic developments! How much you can bend! Russia has already risen from its knees!

              Some groundless fears. Europe is afraid of us, and the United States is afraid of China. Just some kind of cowards ... No, I didn’t notice that they were afraid of something. PPC Europe is self-sufficient, unlike us. Here WITHOUT Europe, it will be awesome for us how hard, well, we don’t have technologies and machines. Do you think why there is so much talk about the lifting of sanctions, because there is no development, not even maintaining a level in the economy without Europe. This is a stupid fact. China somehow turned a booty, something we did not switch to lending from there.

                Yes, it will be difficult for us with and without Europe as long as the Russian economy is at the helm of the Medvedev government, which is commissioned by Washington. Why is the financial block still under the control of the US Federal Reserve, the Central Bank of RUSSIA is pursuing an anti-Russian financial policy,
                why neither the State Duma nor the Federation Council will amend the constitution
                on the nationalization of the Central Bank.

      So there was already material on this topic, well then, and I repeat, I quote:
      Strange, they are hybrid fighting with us. And what do they want - they are sanctions against us, and we are their migrants? With terrorists - is Russia an aggressor and supports Donetsk terrorists, or are they not terrorists? Then let's determine who is engaged in terror and who attacked whom. And in the Minsk agreement, Russia did not sign anything. Well, if according to the effect of presence, then Germany and France, for their part, also let them be carried out, especially since everything rests on Kiev, or can’t we manage Kiev? Then why shift from sore to healthy.
      Well, in order not to be strange - then all this is formulated as follows: the guys and girls just decided to play independent European politics.

    On the evening of March 15, new hegemonic sanction plans became known.
    The State Department is considering introducing new sanctions against Russia over the Crimea,
    will study what other sanctions can be introduced against Russia because of the “annexation of Crimea.


    Well, the Crimean question haunts them. And the question is already 2 of the year. Serious sanctions are difficult to expect, for them it is a matter of principle - that’s what they will suck from the finger. The first sanction is pressure on the Crimeans, on the erosion of interfaith relations in the Crimea, on the erosion of their confidence in the authorities. But, Crimea under any sanctions and a squeal around it will not be asked back and we will not give it back.

    The EU has completely lost touch with reality. They act according to the Ukrainian principle - let it be worse for us, but we will punish Russia.
    However, they left a loophole for themselves:
    Principle number five: “support for civil society of the Russian Federation and relations between people in Russia and the EU”


    But here it is:

    Principle number one: “the full implementation of the Minsk agreements as a key moment in our relations”


    complete isolation from reality, shifted from a sick head to a healthy one.

    That's the way the EU has sharpening pockets, a stone in the bosom, and NATO troops in the Baltic states, and soon will be in Ukraine. And they want friendly relations with them?
    It's bad that our youth will be lured away. This is really bad. Not only will there be a brain drain, but in the end, the fate of these young people will cripple these mogherinis. I do not believe that for Russians there will be a decent job in the EU if they leave there for permanent residence, and not as citizens of their country of Russia and delegated by it. Units, perhaps, will be knocked out into people. So an intelligent, assertive and honest person will always find his way and place. Unless, of course, he sets the goal, having learned the "good" in Europe, to overthrow the government, destroy everything to the ground, and rest on the laurels of the winner. The world today is different than 100 years ago. This will not work, or besides, we will come again.

    For a country to be independent, it must become self-sufficient in all areas.

    If the sanctions are lifted and the current exchange rate is maintained, I don’t think that European business will restore its performance here. It is enough to look at the prices of cars, I think about two years ago, about a man who said that the matiz would cost 500tr - they would twist it at the temple, but now it is a fact. What can we say about the Germans. You can look at the list of manufacturers announced at the Moscow Motor Show 2016, in fact, this is a failure. The real drop in purchasing power can only be compared with 1998; everyone already recognizes this. So it is thought that China, India, etc. will remain the main producers with a real price level for us. The goods and services of European brands will sharply sag.

    Nobody and not when will not invest in the Russian economy except ourselves. Any production in Russia will be more expensive simply because of the cold climate and the conditions of "risky farming". Goods and products from abroad will always (until the climate changes) be cheaper. Only domestic production can saturate the domestic market. Even more expensive. And to everyone who believes that domestic policy is primary and external is secondary, I would like to recall the times of the 90s when, in fact, all of Russia's policy was in external control. How was our economy doing there?

    Russia has always been under sanctions, so that some more, some less, the main thing now is to establish and restore its production, infrastructure, as well as return to normal, Soviet education, despite the efforts of the liberals with their Western partners, grantors. And as I think all this will be very difficult to do without introducing progressive taxation, and reducing the interest rate of the Central Bank on loans for Russian producers, and the Central Bank should become state

    Any production in Russia will be more expensive simply because of the cold climate and the conditions of "risky farming".

    "The United States is" concerned about .... and the militarization of the peninsula. " But, in the words of the hero of the movie "The Diamond Hand" Semyon Semyonovich Gorbunkov - "I should have been in his place!"
    It's a shame all the same ... So everything was going well - American bases in the Crimea, where the Russian coast of the Krasnodar Territory is visible from the KP window! The flight time of cruise missiles is 5 minutes ... A fairy tale, and nothing more! Here on the street Vasily Ivanovich raced on a tachanka!
    In general - a complete bummer !!! Russia, return Crimea dill for subsequent transfer to the Americans! Then we will abolish the sanctions will dramatically increase the supply of sneakers, diapers and tamps to Russia !!! And you will live happily and carefree according to the American laws of shit democracy! And there will be HAPPINESS to you!

    Let's remember Cuba - they applied sanctions to it, applied - and even refused. Blown away. The sanctions help us a lot, now it is becoming obvious. And in another 3-5 years, even Kasyanov and Kasparov will begin to demand the lifting of the sanctions. Right at Venediktov's, they will throw a tantrum at Echo of Moscow.

    We are the richest country in the world. Our whole problem is that over the past 26 years, by hook or by crook, deception and bribery, we have been plunged into the turnover of transnational corporations controlled exclusively by the Naglo-Saxons. THIS IS KABALA! They will cancel the sanctions, do not go to the grandmother, BUT ON WHAT CONDITIONS ?! Currently, WE trade in raw materials, the welfare of our unborn grandchildren and great-grandchildren, for a pittance, and we rejoice like crazy that we are building another wire to the West ... Are you, Kudrin's "economists" not ashamed of the country? YOU, you bastards, have long forgotten about people! Eh ... then everything is unprintable ....!

    Remember the striped once and for all, never Crimea will not leave Russia, never your fleet will not stand in Sevastopol, and cut it on your nose.
    Regarding sanctions, we are “concerned about the human rights in America, especially minorities,” especially the violation of the rights of the Native Americans of the Indians. We demand the immediate closure of all reservations, the removal of all restrictions and the granting of all rights to them throughout the United States.

    The fifth principle, more accurately formulated in the royal decree by Charles VII: "Don't give pardon (mercy) to the Russians," after the battle in 1706 at Fraustadt, when Swedish troops defeated the corps of the Saxon general I. M. Schulenburg. In this corps, along with the Saxons, Poles and French, Russian soldiers fought. So after the battle, the Swedes exterminated 4 thousand disarmed Russian prisoners, "swearingly put a man in two and three on each other stabbed them with spears and baguettes" (from the report of General-Field Marshal Prince A. I. Repnin).

    we will not lift the sanctions, but to the Russian market through the CIS countries, etc. we will climb. We will buy gas, but the EU should support the EU's pocket regimes. They will crawl into internal affairs and inflate protest moods on the basis of "democracy and the protection of human rights", as well as sow seeds of discord between the Russian Federation and neighboring countries.

      Why do we need to lift the sanctions? According to Putin, the time has come for opportunities. Time for the development of domestic production. Moreover, we do not need their ideology of liberalism and consumer society. It is time to close all borders and relations with them, so that "partners from abroad" would not penetrate our spiritual world in any way. One evil from the West and the USA! It's time to either destroy them, or break off diplomatic relations and economic ties!

    Let them discuss. It is not clear why, for the sake of completeness, they were not added to the first paragraph: and until Russia stops shooting down the Boeing.

    The sanctions will be lifted, the borders will have to be opened for their products, and this is death like for our agriculture. For 15 years, our Medvedchuk has been raising it with loud promises and slogans, but things are still there. (I just want to shout "Comrade Stalin, and Medvedev is a deversant, he is sent"). We would change Medvedev with our gadgets for a person who is closer to the Russian land, who will see the future of Russia in the people, and not in the oligarchs. Then there will be no need to replace imports either.

    All these servants of America will become even more unbearable when they finally make sure that only they suffer from their sanctions. And we are just fine! Then we will look at their moods and laugh. And in a hurry to return everything back at their request will be too greasy for them .Russia should have trade and economic ties with countries of the entire globe, and not just with miserable Europe, which on the globe without a magnifying glass, you’re not looking at magnifying glasses.

    European politicians are strongly pressured by their local businessmen, and this is money, lobbies, jobs that are left without a sales market. Of course, I want it to be like 3 years ago. But, for another couple of years, there will be a full import substitution, other countries are tightening up as suppliers and our business is being built ... The Europeans understand that when the system works, it will be very difficult to return to the Russian market. I remember the "Gogol" widow who whipped herself.

    What basic principles were adopted at the meeting?
    Principle number one: “the full implementation of the Minsk agreements as a key moment in our relations” (in quotes, the words Mogherini are given).
    Principle number two: “strengthening relations with our Eastern partners and other neighbors” (talking about the continuation of Eastern Partnership projects aimed at Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, TASS notes).
    Principle number three: ensuring “EU sustainability, particularly in the area of ​​energy security”.
    Principle number four: the development of cooperation with the Russian Federation on specific vectors of the international agenda, of particular interest to the EU. The need for cooperation with Russia on international issues (Iran, Syria, the Middle East region, migrants, the fight against terrorism, climate change, etc.) was noted.
    Principle number five: “support of the civil society of the Russian Federation and relations between people in Russia and the EU”.

    I paraphrase:
    1) Return the Crimea and Donbass and leave Ukraine alone.
    2) The economic and military-political expansion to the east will continue. CIS countries do not belong to the sphere of Russian interests.
    3) The reliability of gas supplies from Russia to Europe is a common problem that should be addressed by Russia with strict observance of the sovereignty of Ukraine and the opinions of third countries (Bulgaria, the Baltic states, etc.)
    3.1) Ukraine is also Europe, and therefore its energy security must also be ensured at the expense of Russia.
    4) Russia must solve the problem of migrants using leverage over Assad. Let it spell bomb civilians.
    4.1) The EU is a full participant in the peace settlement in Syria.
    5) Subversive activities on the territory of the Russian Federation will continue, and attempts to resist it will be condemned by "the entire world community."

    In general, nothing new. Was it worth it to pack up?
