Ukraine risks losing its last trade with Russia


Economy Ukraine looks extremely sad. If you imagine the country as a large enterprise, then you can easily notice that some of the workshops are no longer working, and some are simply destroyed. There is a relatively small number of them, a significant number of which are owned by anyone, but not the state. At the same time, Kiev risks losing the remnants of trade relations that still exist with Moscow. The head of the Ukrainian NGO Strategic Group Sofia Andriy Ermolaev said this on the NEWSONE TV channel.


According to the ex-director of the National Institute for Strategic Studies, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky is only creating an imitation of activities. He was lucky to be elected only because the population and elite are tired of Petro Poroshenko. They didn't know who to bet on, and then a famous actor turned up.

He stressed that the idea of ​​the "Crimean platform" did not appear in Zelensky's head. It was simply slipped to him by the most interested external players. Probably the United States and Great Britain, perhaps also Turkey, which is trying to play the card of concern about the fate of the Crimean Tatars. These countries seek enmity between Ukraine and Russia, as well as the termination of trade relations between them.

Only a very narrow-minded man in the street does not understand that as soon as two different problems (Crimea and Donbass) merge into one political position, this will lead to the finalization of the historical rift with Russia, with which, instead of the promised negotiations and frank talk about the future, there will be another round of the real Cold War (I exclude a hot one for now) and a sharp change in even the current specific "hybrid" economic regime

- he explained.

Despite the suspension of various agreements, sanctions and "legal paralysis" of the treaty of friendship and cooperation between Ukraine and Russia, multi-billion dollar trade continues. But Ukraine will lose everything that is left if it follows the path of the "Crimean platform". Even patient Moscow cannot bear such an attitude towards itself.

2021 may be the last year for the supply of Russian diesel fuel, gasoline and other necessary products. The gas hub in Slovakia, where the Ukrainian elite earns colossal money on Russian energy raw materials, will cease to exist.

    From January to August 2020, Russia became a major trading partner of Ukraine, according to the State Customs Service of Ukraine. According to customs officials, trade with the "aggressor country" rose to $ 3,79 billion.

    And this is the tip of the iceberg. I doubt that the "prikardonniks" calculated the turnover through the "blue-eyed" and other countries. I cannot vouch for the accuracy, from memory, I came across estimates of the turnover of about 40 billion a year.

      I remember 1973. Also a coup, as in 2014, only not a gang of gopniks, but an army trained by the Americans. Allende took the AK, which he had not held in his hands before and died like a hero. So in my memory and remained. How did it happen? Helicopters to Rostov. In Odessa, people were burned, Lugansk was bombed, no, they did not hear. Is the President Poroshenko now? As you say. FIFA World Cup on the nose,

      handsome men from New Zealand will arrive.

      Shame !!!

    They will continue to trade. Russia has long been no longer a COUNTRY, but a trading company. Fiercely hated America has a law prohibiting any action with enemy countries. There is a law - there is responsibility. In Russia - the dollar is god! Sell ​​everything, don't give a damn about everything. In Donbass, people are dying with the words "Russia ... help". POFIG. For 30 years in Transnistria they have been suffering from non-recognition (humiliation at the border, double taxation, non-recognition of documents, etc.), only because they are for Russia. POFIG.

      Of course I understand, it's boiling and all that. I understand you a lot. Only there is a question. Transnistria with whom and how does it trade? With Mozambique through space? Whom you will not listen to, all correct and principled, only Russia is corrupt, only money in mind. In Transnistria, when did the corridor have to be cut? Immediately when the turmoil began or when the Ukraine seethed? As for Donbass, again, in many ways, you are right, but how long would it last without help? It is also interesting how they came to such a life. The same Donbass needed Russia until they started bombing? Do Belarusians need it now? Or are they also waiting until they wash themselves with a bloody little boy, then they will start demanding help from Russia?
      And with America you have an example not to say that it would be successful.

    I think Russia is equally profitable trade with Ukraine, as well as Ukraine with Russia. The time has come to sit down calmly and think about how to live for both states. It's time to stop recriminations, to resolve the issue of Crimea and Donbas, because lose both sides. Well, is it really difficult to understand: as it was before, there will never be any more!

      Who is against? Pick up the punishers from Donbass, stop whining about Crimea. What could be easier? Only about what it is possible to agree with other people's lackeys is a big mystery. Yesterday in Ukraine, the use of the Russian language in the everyday life was officially banned.

      Well, is it really difficult to understand: as it was before, there will never be any more!

      And here you got excited. Don't even hope. The foam will subside, the Nazi jackal will be disposed of and the graves will be sprinkled with salt. All efforts are in vain.

        If everything is as you wrote, then Russia and Ukraine will NEVER come out of the crisis. Germany has inflicted much more damage on the world than Russia has inflicted and continues to inflict on itself, but the whole world talks and trades with Germany!

          Did you expect a different result? Will you whine for a long time and the residents of the Crimea will be handed over to you like cattle, and the residents of Donbass will start teaching MOV and broadcasting portraits of Bandera? Are you seriously? sad No, no. request Well, so be it. This means that not only everyone will survive. Is the hint clear?



          Germany has inflicted much more damage on the world than Russia has inflicted and continues to inflict on itself, but the whole world talks and trades with Germany!

          What is this nonsense? What harm is Russia doing to itself? Before they started talking with Germany, there was a denazification.

          How is the situation in 2021 worse than the situation in 1945?

              Do you understand exactly what is the name of the place where Ukraine is now?

    Yeah, in seven years the number of Nazi militants has only increased. They are able to suppress any manifestation to common sense. Ukrainian. people understand everything. but how to resist? There is no weapon or organization. Just go outside to protest. They'll arrest you immediately or disappear without a trace.
    In Crimea, too, nothing would have happened without the help of the "little green men". Hundreds of bandits would just come and drown the Crimea in blood. This is then. And now everything is even better. They are able to gather thousands of militants in any critical region in a day or night.
    You need to start from the southern part of the Odessa region. There are only two bridges for communication with the rest of Ukraine, plus a completely loyal population. Recognize as a republic immediately. With a sales market in the Crimea and Russia and ports on the Danube, they will not be lost. In a short time, Gagauzia will join them. There is Odessa, etc.

      Was it easier in 1942?

      Who's in the way? Is it difficult on the spot? We left for Russia, Transnistria and so on, get organized, train for health. This is your country and no one will do anything for you.

      It was necessary to start earlier, as soon as the Banderites began to appear. As you are interested ... immediately recognize the sales markets. You don't have to think about that. The ground should burn the floor with the feet of the Nazis. How can you tolerate these creatures?

    Vile bureaucrats - litter nations, not people among themselves! Vile lies from TV, mass media, Internet pouring like waterfall! There are problems, but not as they write. And trade between countries is going on, not the same as before 2014, but it is going on! Confectionery, medicines and many others. The Russian Federation buys from Ukraine, and Ukraine also buys N goods from the Russian Federation. The Russian Federation will not sell to Ukraine, Belarus does and will do this, and the Russian Federation does not want what would happen? Then you need a real border unnecessarily STABLE - RF to the moon! It's just a cash cow.
