Retaliatory Russian sanctions against the US will become a laughing stock for Moscow


In recent years, we have been told a lot about how confidently we “rose from our knees”, cleverly replaying everyone and winning at “distant approaches”. Both professional propagandists and their voluntary assistants are engaged in this. But from time to time, events occur that break the imposed patterns and disperse the "hassle".


From the recent one, remember how the media and popular bloggers covered the Normandy format meeting in Paris? If you believe them, in the "geopolitical judo" Ukraine was defeated and "put in place." A week and a half later, Gazprom agreed to a new transit agreement for 5 years for Kiev, an increase in transit payments and the payment of the fine awarded by the Stockholm arbitration. On the eve of the monopolist paid it, and, taking into account the penalty, the amount from $ 2,6 billion rose to 2,9. A drop in the ocean for some ...

And what did they tell us about Nord Stream-2, which supposedly cannot be stopped already? President Donald Trump signed the defense budget, which provided for sanctions against Russian gas pipelines, and the European contractor immediately quit his job. If the pipeline is completed on its own, the launch of Nord Stream-2 is postponed until the end of 2020, and this is in the best case.

These unpleasant examples clearly demonstrate the break in the pattern of the "former" superpower "rising from its knees". Unfortunately, we are more likely to "half eat."

The question is, what's next? Continue to keep a good face in a bad game, while specially trained people explain the next "multi-way" to the population, or, finally, accept the reality, as it is, without pink glasses, "grow up" and begin to act accordingly?

Yes, you can soberly assess the current situation in the economyexternal policy, science and education, astronautics, defense and, finally, begin to clean them from amateurs, to carry out systemic reforms. You can diversify the economy, restore the industry, make it more competitive due to cheaper electricity. Why in Germany, for example, the "green revolution" and inexpensive "blue fuel" in large quantities are needed, but we do not? For example, the gas that Gazprom now forcibly forgets Europeans for dollars can be burned in Russia, producing environmentally friendly kilowatts for its own enterprises and population.

You can do this and much more. The industrialization of Russia and the withdrawal of our international reserves from the economies of Western countries would be the best response to American and European sanctions. But, apparently, we will continue to "roll around." The Russian Foreign Ministry prepared Washington’s “sanctions from hell”, and here’s what they look like, according to Ministry spokesman Sergei Ryabkov:

The answer will be found, it can be in the form of expanding our stop lists for entering Russia ... Those people who were most active in promoting this particular decision of the administration and other sanctions initiatives, and there are many of them, more than a dozen different kinds of projects are circulating in Congress ... But they will learn about this, apparently, at the moment when they will request an appropriate visa.


Yes, they punished so punished. Today, there is not enough Russian diplomacy, since Moscow cannot really give a tough answer, because it will be a “shot in the foot”. This situation eloquently testifies to the true level of our country's dependence on the West. “Those people who were most active in promoting this particular decision of the administration” have never been to Russia and are unlikely to ever come to us. Therefore, the sanctions measures of our Foreign Ministry are like a dead poultice.

But then it will only get worse. Obviously, the following sanctions will be directed against the Kremlin’s European partners, and this is a much more serious threat. The choice between Russia and the United States for Europe is quite obvious. Despite this, some fundamental changes in our country have not yet been observed.

    We got into a "raskoryaku", in my opinion, is more suitable.

    Got off your knees? Yes, we are not even allowed to kneel down! Just do not let starve to death! That there were no hunger riots. And humiliation and spitting pour in from all sides. They know that the Russians will rub off and not answer. At the youth World Cup, they did not play the Russian anthem and played nothing. And our TV still pays for the broadcast. Or maybe it's for the better? By 2024 we will spit, as on EBN?

    This, of course, is all good ... But before you engage in economics and politics, you need to understand what we are, who we are and why we are. And this is done by ideology, which, in turn, is engaged in the implementation of the national idea.

    Putin recently said:

    We all know that one of the main tasks in this area is the fight against increasing the income level of citizens, especially among those categories that receive the lowest incomes. This is task number one.

    Already ceased to hide the true goals of all ongoing reforms.

    IN THE BEGINNING WAS A WORD

    (imitating Leonid Filatov)

    In the beginning was the word!
    The word uttered Vova.
    And he said it very severely.

    Of course, do not be King Vova
    They would explain to him sensibly,
    That today is not the basis
    And to punish, it will not work ponto.

    However, to prove something to Vova ...
    The logarithm is easier to explain to the cow.
    Therefore, eyebrows have fallen -
    how to spoil the United States as much blood as possible.

    But only an intelligent idea appeared,
    Immediately the theme of the residence of children in the United States was reset.
    It’s impossible to offend the staff
    So as not to stay in the underpants then!
    The task is not solved, and Vova’s patience is over.

    The minds of those who were not great were taken,
    And so the laws were ironed.
    And grace descended on them,
    Punish so that there is something to tell.
    It doesn’t matter what is the use of these retaliatory sanctions,
    As much as from ritual dances.

    And they bowed to Vova’s house,
    Report - sanctions on the United States are thought up and ready.
    Here, they say, with all the "proletarian" hatred,
    We forbid senators - mental algae,
    Swore that the "Stream" is not happy for our hell,
    Cross the borders of the Russian Garden of Eden.

    May torment in anger numbness!
    Writhe in the throes of our contempt for them.
    And there will be no forgiveness for them,
    And that means a Russian visit.

    The whole world flinched, imagining the consequences.
    As if all the oligarchs deprived children of their inheritance.
    The US has not experienced such "humiliation."
    That's just in the minds of democrats fermentation -
    If this is a response to “sanctions from hell”,
    So maybe the Russians already do not need to build?

    With its statements about the answer, the Kremlin will only make people laugh ... it would be possible to answer if the country had a leadership defending the honor of the country, and not showing super tolerance for all insults ...

    And so shame after shame. Why then "cheeks"? Americans understand only power and nothing but power. Everything resembles the policy of the Tsar of the loser Nicholas II. They also threatened the liberals with a finger, they were also afraid to offend the Western allies. Here are the "allies", hiding behind the liberals, and they started a coup ... Well, then everyone knows. Civil war (with the feeding of one of the parties "allies") - the devastation ......

    You are absolutely right. Cons are absolutely undeserved. However, it is clear who is minus.

    Judging by the reaction of those who have not been allowed to enter the Russian Federation from this list, it is painful and humiliating for them ...
    Maybe this is already not enough, but it’s better that way than nothing ... because we’ll always be in time to the nines?

    The trouble is that the advice to "clean the economy from amateurs" is given by exactly the same amateurs.
    Type - burn gas here and make products of the second redistribution. Can. Only it will be more expensive than any import. At least due to the peculiarities of geography and climate.
    Manufacturing a processor on Novaya Zemlya will always be more expensive than manufacturing it in Malaysia.
    And we simply do not have those economists that the author dreams of. Highly professional and highly moral elite cannot be grown in one generation - the roots are pulled back.
    Ukraine tried to get into the bright future with one leap. In the hope that you can change the essence by changing the headings. We see everything that came of it.
    Therefore, the "dream come true" tomorrow morning and never happens anywhere, for this you need to work long and hard, and not panic about any natural setbacks.
    It is annoying when there are no daily breakthroughs to the dream, but who is easy now?

    I am an ardent anti-Putin. But judging by the cons 50/50. Where did Putin get 70% support? On the Internet, 70/30 was in favor of Grudinin. And how can one not believe Navalny?

    Why exaggerate? What is the share of email. energy in production costs? If you burn gas with us and build nuclear power plants with us, and also open production facilities not in Novaya Zemlya, but in the Central and Western parts of Russia, everything will be fine. Why go too far?
    There are normal economists in the country, they just are not in demand.

    Ukraine with its consent to transit, thoroughly banged on American LNG. Russia's share in the European market from this year will be 45%, instead of 33% in the past. Gazprom, through Ukraine and Austria, can supply gas to Italy and the south of France without any restrictions. The Americans in Europe have two clients left - Britain and Poland. fellow laughing And the Americans plowed the way to China well - LNG imports fell from 36 million tons to 18 - only from Australia and Qatar.
    Trump - American Gorbachev.

    Oh, these mriy. Well, they stopped the SP-2. However, Europe is full of gas due to the warm winter. A transit agreement has been concluded with Ukraine to lift the seizure of Gazprom’s European property. A year can be pulled, and losses can be recovered from the USA by a favorite contractor. After all, too, there was something to lose, Trump threatened with confiscation of money and property. But the company is at least Swiss, and its headquarters are in the USA. And how does the venerable author view US sanctions on the port of Riga? To ruin Latvia is also a punishment for Russia lol ??
