Stratfor: European unanimity on anti-Russian sanctions under threat

66
In the EU, there is no consensus on the extension of sanctions against the Russian Federation, and although Kiev will actively lobby for this issue in Europe, it will be difficult for him to achieve results, the intelligence and analysis company Stratfor noted in its report.

Stratfor: European unanimity on anti-Russian sanctions under threat


“The EU consensus on sanctions could be at risk. Despite the fact that earlier the EU countries unanimously voted to maintain sanctions against Russia, now some of them (for example, Italy and Hungary) indicate that they can come out for the lifting of sanctions during the next discussion. ”- quotes the report Expert Online.

According to researchers, some European leaders, "especially loyal to Russia, are skeptical of Ukraine" because of the lack of positive changes there.

«In fact, a number of EU countries have accused Ukraine of dragging out economic and institutional reforms, despite Poroshenko’s recent promise that the political crisis in the country will be resolved before the end of this month ”, - analysts emphasized.

    Until the Americans are allowed, no sanctions will be lifted from us. Well, even if they remove it, the price tag in the store will not fall, the housing and communal services and the cost of gasoline will not decrease.

      The EU is no longer unanimous on the issue of extending sanctions against Russia

      This we hear every time after the adoption of the next extension of the sanctions. It's time to stop fantasizing. Sanctions will extend as cute.

          This Stratfor information is not so valuable as it does not change much. Namely.
          Intelligence and analysis company Stratfor - or the so-called The “Shadow CIA” - with this semi-objective forecast publicly - only in fact - only states the US State Department that “consensus in the EU on sanctions against Russia could be in jeopardy for the US in Europe.” Moreover, the OWNERS are to blame for more than Ukraine itself (!) - because of its economic and political insolvency, as such, in the reforms it has designated in the eyes of some European states - and not so much through the fault of Russia. Which, naturally, will complicate Washington’s actions in Europe against Russia. However, at the same time, in the report, causal involvement in this negative process in Ukraine by the United States itself - i.e. the answer, from where the “legs grow”, is prudently sly for the world community to drop.
          Naturally, the US strategy in Europe against Europe itself and against Russia, according to the Stratfor report, does not even imply any fundamental changes in Washington’s policy, but only assumes the need for adjusting the CIA’s tactics to achieve Washington’s previous goals. That's all!
          Therefore, there is absolutely NO new information about this Stratfor information as such. Then why did Stratfor announce its "forecast"?
          Yes, only for self-promotion in the sales market of its intelligence and information services to other countries. Since this Stratfor Intelligence and Analysis Company is officially a private company, it must find new customers for itself in the intelligence market. Business!

          Running in a circle or a snake devouring its tail ...
          Not so long ago, they made a statement that the sanctions of Europe could not be lifted until Russia returned Crimea.
          And how now do they intend to get out and get out of the sanctions regime when they drove themselves into a deadlock? The word is not a sparrow - it will fly out, you will catch such .....
          I believe that we will not definitely return Crimea)))

      Well, even if they remove it, the price tag in the store will not fall, the housing and communal services and the cost of gasoline will not decrease.


      Sanctions are primarily loans. They hinder national projects. Housing and communal services are not affected. In theory, house partnerships should be created and under the guidance of a military pensioner to conduct their affairs. Then prices can be balanced and disciplined by suppliers. The management company will squeeze all the juices. Gasoline may have a governmental resource of pressure, but there will be no positive changes, there are too many narrow interests. And the price tags in stores depend entirely on sellers, which they will reduce only on the excess of goods.

              A little more and nothing imported (food) really will not be necessary. And there, at least cancel it, it will not be necessary anymore - we will fill up ourselves. China is quietly opening up the market (half a mil. Tons of grain in the Republic of Kazakhstan and the Russian Federation); recently, the green light has been given to our people. oil. Sweets, cookies, pasta, etc. judging by our media find their customers in China (in-kind). It was high time to tackle food security - there was enough land.
              But the Germans just need to cut off the supply of cars not assembled in the Russian Federation. Oh, and howl, those Mercedes and Porsches with Audi. They wrote that the German market for them caught up with the Russian one in sales. And for the Russian Federation, stimulation of its own car production. I see GDP has long ceased to fly to the EU intensively - they themselves arrive or call. It is high time to squeeze the maximum out of these sanctions - let the Europeans strangle themselves. They do not want "streams" - to build gas pipelines in the East. Only the PRC needs 100 billion cubic meters of gas with further growth. Korea, Japan, etc.
              Another interesting fact. Previously, because of cheap labor, everyone built enterprises in the PRC. But now we have it (average salary) below the Chinese. Here, too, you can squeeze something. And the location is just in the center. In the west of Europe, in the east of Asia.
              The only splinter is the world fin. system. Something the SCO countries (RF, China, RK) are actually buying gold (judging by the media) - muddied something for three !? The Germans and others are also trying to drag the gold home. "Sow the wind, reap the storm." It seems very soon that trade in the SCO will go to the national. currencies. There could be more further.
              Politically, both internally and externally, the EU is failing - terrorist attacks and refugees, which only increase tensions. The authorities in the EU will fly off in the next elections - the probability is at least high. Therefore, a split can also be made in this "field". Support some, ignore others. Well, that Le Pen was given credit for example. "Buy" there who needs to be - as the Westerners did in the 90s - in bulk, in lots, let them be mouthpieces.
              After the VKS demonstration in Syria, they won’t go to war, and Kiev is unlikely to want to support it (an empty idea).
              So their sanctions could hit them hard. They probably haven't calculated everything, even a couple of steps ahead. And if the Kremlin strongly "puts pressure" on the EU (economically and politically), they will immediately feel who is a regional and who is a superpower. I don’t quite understand why the GDP is “fiddling” with the Europeans - it should be tougher with them, especially after Ukraine. They ruined and bankrupted the country with their Euro-association and empty promises - let them answer. hi

      Cuba: Obama does not feel the stench of dictatorship
      Cuban leaders haven’t even met Obama at the Havana airport, but he is oblivious to it, he’s so enthusiastic about his mission. Cristofaro Sola writes about the visit of the American president to Cuba in an article published in the newspaper L'Opinione.

      For the worst president in US history, a trip to Cuba has become a kind of moon landing. All that was missing was for Obama to utter a phrase by Neil Armstrong, the first astronaut to land on the lunar surface: a small step for man, but a huge step for humanity. Strange things can make money even with the most powerful people on earth. Dear Barak came to see his new friend Raul Castro, accompanied by a whole retinue of industrialists and entrepreneurs. Cuba is a tidbit for all of them, because it is beautiful, has excellent potential for the development of tourism, and Cubans are so in need of everything that they would like to revel in Western materialism. Thus, it is quite natural that Mr. Obama sees in the Cuban dossier opportunities that cannot be missed, for the sake of which you can close your eyes to some of the sins of the local authorities. So, for example, they put dissidents in prisons and suppress any sources of free information. At the heart of all this is real politics. Therefore, it is impossible to blame the current owner of the White House, who, fortunately, remains to be such for long, the author of the article writes.

      Why, then, does the same Mr. Obama accuse Italians of inappropriate relations with Putin and his leadership? “Russians love Italy and everything that is produced in our country. If they could, they would buy everything from our enterprises, but they cannot do this, because there are sanctions imposed by Washington and its European henchmen,” the author notes. articles. America proclaims the slogan: have nothing to do with the Russians, because they are imperialists who deny the freedom of people and nations.

      According to the White House, Western democracies should have nothing to do with the enemy. But let's see: Cuban Communists are good, but Russians are not? How does this principle work? Italy can't buy oil from Moscow so as not to threaten the whole world? But can American bigwigs go to Cuba and fill their pockets there? The truth is, the author of the article writes, that the blind submission of little Italy to a powerful overseas ally is already tired. Now devotion to a principle that operates in a variable flow regime no longer makes sense. Many Italian factories have closed due to sanctions against Russia. Others are looking for loopholes to still deliver their products to the Russian market. Italian energy group Eni has been forced to abandon a lucrative partnership with Russia's Gazprom in the South Stream project. "These unbearable sacrifices are motivated by the defense of the ideals of freedom, but the champions of these ideals, mocking them, sit down at the table set by the bloody communist regime of the Castro family. Who do you want to deceive?" - asks the author of the article.

    By applying sanctions, the EU has demonstrated its attitude towards the Russians.
    Stratfor may not be hysterical - sanctions against the Russian Federation will never be lifted, the Russians understand this, as well as the true attitude towards our country.

    MP is ready to destroy the crystal house of Gropa.
    The goal is world domination and the transformation of all people into dust and morlocks ...
    The plan is being implemented before our eyes.
    They will not spare anyone.
    I doubt that we can stand, taking into account the five-column in all branches of government.
    They, too, by the way, are disposed of.
    I hope.

    When Russia was torn to pieces by the bombers trained by the Americans, they did not notice. The wine was by definition ours! Now let it come to "perfectly protected" European eggs what it is like to shrink to the state of a pea! And let the sanctions remain on their conscience ...

    Empty chatter. Hungarians and Italians hope for their nonsense to get some preferences. It will be as the overseas lord says, but he really needs these sanctions. By them, he and the EU are bending into an arc, and it is harmful to us.

    And who is Kiev, and what does it have to do with Europe?

    Like this?! Ruin is the most militarized country in Europe. And the front line of the confrontation between Europe and Russia! If not for her, the Buryat tankers would have already washed their feet in the Lamansh.)))

    Gropa's "unanimity" is ensured by the occupying forces of the MP,
    total dirt
    financial dependence - bribery,
    lack of spirituality of elites and population.
    This is the End
    as predicted by Malachi.
    Amen!

    I am very curious - What eggs are they being held for, if they do not have unanimity and some even "love" Russia, and the sanctions continue and continue?

    I’ll tell you a little secret. The most anti-Russian sanctions are hitting ... Ukraine !!! I myself live in / in Ukraine. What is the most, the most, the European government of Ukraine has succeeded. The level of life of the population has fallen nowhere (?). Or is there still where? request

    Agriculture needs to be built up. And then the fields are empty. We have grown beets and carrots and radishes near St. Petersburg ... now everything is overgrown with weeds. Maybe something will move off the ground ...


    I do not want to offend anyone, but you yourself dealt with this issue about which you write? I have a small farm near St. Petersburg 15 horses, goats, sheep, rabbits, poultry, do you know how much feed has risen in price? And the fields were not overgrown with weeds, enterprises were sown in normal quantities, I’m not talking about summer residents, a couple of years ago the land was empty, and last year all the plots were sown. Even people who were more interested in clean lawns and then put greenhouses and made beds. But unfortunately prices are rising, what grandmother would buy a pack of cucumber seeds in which 8 pcs. for 90 rubles, and sometimes even more expensive, I'm not talking about the industrial scale. And besides, the north-west is a zone of risky farming.

    All this pluralism will evaporate immediately after being threatened by sanctions from America against these daredevils from Europe. All this chatter is just an illusion of some supposedly independence. They will support the sanctions as nice as long as Dr. Sam needs it.

    Being surrounded by European countries, Italy and Hungary, well, they will not be able to refuse sanctions against Russia. Their neighbors will simply "peck". So, enough fantasies about sanctions, already bored with European bullshit! angry

    One call from Biden and all those who disagree obediently change their position. I understand that in the Western world, even a hint of disagreement with the opinion of the United States requires special courage. But still, I would like more meaningful actions by Europeans to protect their national interests.

    Everything is right, it should be so, especially in the light of recent events, striped far away, and they are not used to risking their lives for others, their own shirt is closer to the body. So the Europeans themselves will have to spin and head off their dumb brain.
