Military Review

US senator said that the issue of Crimea is in the past

76
The representative of the Committee on Foreign Affairs of the US Senate, Robert Menendez, representing the Democratic Party, said that the question of returning Crimea to Ukraine is no longer discussed today. RIA News cites a statement by Robert Menendez:


We are no longer talking about the Crimea. I believe that this is already in the past.


US senator said that the issue of Crimea is in the past


The senator noted that during the hearings, to which representatives of the US foreign affairs and military departments (State Department and Pentagon) were invited, the situation regarding Crimea was not discussed. The main topics related to Russia, which were discussed by US senators and officials invited to parliament: “a probable threat” in the Baltic States, the situation in the Donbas and questions about the INF Treaty.

At the same time, Victoria Nuland, who represents the US Department of State, noted the other day that sanctions against Russia will continue until Russia “does not return the Crimea to Ukraine.” According to Nuland, Russia "has already spent billions of rubles on the militarization of the Crimea." At the same time, Ms. Nuland did not dwell on how much the US spends on militarization around the world, ranging from the Romanian Deveselu and ending with the military presence in the South China Sea and on the Japanese Okinawa.

            Yes, Russia without sanctions, as without gingerbread! lol Well, if the Americans are no longer discussing the problem of Crimea, then why should they not recognize its accession to Russia! It would have turned out, albeit crumpled, but still a gesture of goodwill.

          If the sanctions of the West are "high" for us, then why did we not impose such on ourselves before their introduction? laughing Our government and officials have always been high and high without sanctions.

          For Russia, this is not just normal, it is what we need! A way to put our country on its own feet, and those countries which put forward these sanctions, put in a missionary position, well, or another, even more preferable, put on all fours!

          In general, pressure is unacceptable in politics, we must defend our point of view, otherwise they will cease to reckon with us at all. Against this background, the behavior of Gref, Aeroflot and other companies who are afraid to come to Crimea looks defiant

          For whom? For those who impose them or who impose them?
          WTO rules are based on several fundamental principles. One of them is the principle of most favored nation, prohibiting discrimination of goods from member countries of the organization. In other words, if we agree to import goods and services from country A, we cannot restrict trade in similar goods originating from country B. The second fundamental principle is the refusal to use the so-called quantitative restrictions, such as trade embargoes or customs quotas.

          Stalin, under the conditions of the "iron curtain" (if this concept can be applied, referring to later times), rebuilt the country twice, after two bloody and destructive wars. And did not bow to anyone, and Roosevelt (in a wheelchair laughing) We stood at attention with Churchill, and nothing ... We were rebuilt, and how, we still "eat through" the "Soviet" stock. And the ruble was GOLD, not like today's pieces of paper!

      The United States played with Ukraine precisely for the sake of the Crimea and now, having finally realized that they would try to leave with great-power American dignity! Whatever they say publicly, but in the silence of the State Departments there will never be forgiveness for the Ukrainian junta - for this failure, therefore, everyone will be merged gradually into toilet bowl of history! Poroshenko also understands this - he did not do the main thing - he did not bring Crimea on a silver platter! And without it, in every sense of the diamond, Ukraine turns from a precious necklace into a brass chain of flushing mechanism for a .. closet!

    The Americans could not help but calculate the consequences of the loss of Crimea to Ukraine. Rather, on the contrary, they waited and prepared an answer in the form of sanctions and an increase in their presence in the Black Sea. But Anyway, something went wrong, namely, Russia withstood the blow, and even won this round.

    Unfortunately, the propaganda of the Aglosakians is bearing fruit ... request plus a snickering party, and even the top believes everything goes the way ... and people because of this start to resent Putin’s policies and the return of the Crimea, the imposition of sanctions ... + the top elite openly posing that they drive cars for tens of millions - when they save nearby last penny. and conversations begin that everything is for the tops ..., cutting back on the Ministry of Health, education, culture .... and again, conversations that there is no need to annoy the Westerners and Aglosakians - we can remain isolated, the money goes only to the Military Commissariat .... a large territory of the Far The east with the bowels was leased to China ... the people will extinguish the structure of the Ministry of Internal Affairs ... what Supreme’s analysts are working poorly ... repeat

    I personally am for the return of the Crimea; for sanctions, and for sanctions against Russia to continue, but our sanctions in response continued to apply. In the future, I believe this will benefit the homeland. hi

    "... And the one who stays here,
    Will see the sun rise
    And the New Age is born,
    Whoever stands here will understand
    That he is a man.

    The sun goes west
    And run after him
    Those who do not know
    That everything in this life
    It has a source.

    The sun goes west
    But to be born again,
    Hastens to the East
    To the East.

    "... who conquers himself - he will live after life ..." (I. Talkov Jr.)
    you can cite many more poems and songs of our poets and singers to understand that Russia and the people living in it live according to a different scenario and are not going to live according to the Aglo-Saktsevo scenario. "they" do not understand us, and whoever understands and wants to direct his life activity for the good of our Motherland can be safely considered "Russian"

    We look forward to a referendum in small Britain, and then in Scotland, there will be a third precedent (Kosovo, Crimea, Scotland) for the reorganization of territories by the will of the people. Kosovo is somewhat drawn out, like a project of amers.

    Well, if the Americans no longer discuss the problem of Crimea,

    Such statements and their replication by our mass media are very unnerving. Believe it is not ordinary senators, not former ministers, chancellors, not the parliaments of Venice and Bavaria that determine the policy of states. Not statements by "authoritative" writers, correspondents, advisers, etc. do not affect the OFFICIAL COURSE STATE. And every day we have news whether a representative of an opposition party in a certain parliament has spoken out, or a regional parliament or a former activist has expressed HIS opinion. THIS IS WHEN THE OFFICIAL POSITION OF THE MFA (State Department, or otherwise called) or the HEAD of another state will change- then notify us, and so only the shaking of the air! tongue hi

    All this is a disguise, when it will be profitable for them, they will again raise the fuss around the Crimea and begin to water Russia with water without batting, it’s like a cycle of water in nature ...

    They do not need us strong and whole, they need us weak and fragmented. Therefore, the American senator said nothing new in essence. There they will not "remember", and elsewhere they will voice the exact opposite. So - words, only words. And Nuland - let him rummage in his wallet, and not look at strangers. What we spend money on is our sovereign business.

    God forbid, the sanctions be lifted, our wise businessmen will again rejoice at the possibility of turning Russia into a raw materials appendage of the West.

    Not all. Not everyone. For reasonable businessmen THIS is a chance.

    I didn’t understand something. Do you think that sanctions are normal !?

    And what do sanctions prevent you personally from living? Have you taken property abroad? Or have they been blacklisted and not allowed in the USA?
    Ordinary people do not care about sanctions. The crisis in the country is not from them, but from the liberal economic policy of the government, from the fact that they do not want to put industry on its feet, and the people have long been waiting for it to be possible to work at their native enterprises again, and not by managers involved in bringing this to one another .
    Or is this Menendez the one that our Brother re-educated?

    Even Senator Menendez already realized that there was no need to break a spear regarding Crimea, and that it was necessary to deal with world problems. But alas, people like Nulland either do not get it, or she just pretends to be a fool, counting our billions, would count her own how much striped them all over the world have spent precisely on the military, brainless chicken. You can’t name her anymore.
