Russia must respond to new sanctions by expanding into Ukraine


So it began. The Democratic Party, which has returned to power in the United States, is starting to intensify sanctions pressure on Russia. The Americans are going to make our country "pay" for the "malicious activity" that it allegedly was engaged in. How will Moscow have to respond to this Washington?


What specific claims are being made against the Kremlin, explained Jake Sullivan, President Joe Biden's national security aide:

This includes the intervention in American democracy, the poisoning of citizens on European soil with chemical weapons, the hacker attacks and the [computer] break-ins you just mentioned. And much more.

"Intervention in democracy" is, presumably, the situation in the 2016 presidential elections, when the Democrats unexpectedly lost to the Republicans and did not find anything smarter than to blame Russia for it. "Poisoning on European soil" is the case of the Skripal family, who in an incredible way survived the attack with the most terrible domestic chemical weapons and feel surprisingly well after that. "Hacking" is a recent large-scale cyberattack targeting leading US government agencies and companies. Shame on the American secret services and computer security specialists, whoever is really behind this hack!

“Much more” is, apparently, also the poisoning of the well-known Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny by the same Novichok who figured in the Skripals case and his imprisonment following his return to his homeland from abroad. Also in Washington, they recalled the already quite forgotten case of the murder of opposition leader Boris Nemtsov. The US Democratic Party intends to respond to all this by introducing additional sanctions, which should become "more effective." But what can they really be?

A problem pointed out by the American policy, is that the arsenal of non-violent restrictive measures is almost exhausted. The United States is very practical and tries not to do anything that is detrimental to itself. Disconnection of Russia from SWIFT, sanctions against domestic banks or an operation with the state debt of the Russian Federation are possible, but our country will eventually survive them, and foreign investors themselves will suffer to one degree or another. More likely are targeted sanctions that undermine the stability of the ruling regime.

First, the This is a continuation of pressure on the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline under construction and new obstacles to the export of hydrocarbons in general, which are the basis for the receipt of foreign exchange revenues in the federal budget.

Secondly, these are the sanctions that hit the closest circle of Vladimir Putin, which owe much of their rise to personal friendship with the president.

ThirdlyWhat can be considered a further escalation of the Cold War-2, these are some measures against the Russian president himself. The first step in this direction has already been taken when he and former Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev were banned from attending international sports events for several years. Now the US is calling for a report on "the personal wealth of Vladimir Putin and his family." Presumably, this is a continuation of the story with the "palaces", but here the investigation will be brought to a much higher official level.

How can the Kremlin respond to this? Freeze the accounts of American politicians in Russian banks? Deny their closest relatives a residence permit in Russia and take away luxury real estate in Sochi and Crimea? Ban the supply of oil to the United States? It is clear that all this is not serious. If Moscow wants to give weighty back to its ill-wishers from the US Democratic Party, then the response should be asymmetric.

No, not to ban the import of American corn, but, for example, to put things in order in neighboring Ukraine, which is considered the fiefdom of Joe Biden himself. In the event of an escalation of Cold War-2, recognize the independence of the DPR and LPR and conclude an agreement on military assistance with them. If Washington and Kiev respond with an offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, then take these territories into the Russian Federation, and at the same time expand the zone of Russian influence to the Dnieper, or better - to Odessa. At the same time, there will be options with Transnistria, the problem with the water supply of Crimea will be solved, and Ukraine will approach its historical borders, being cut off from the sea, becoming more negotiable.

Will new Western sanctions be imposed for such an expansion? Of course, yes. So they will still be introduced, let it be better for the cause.

    In general, the hope is still alive that Russia will also impose sanctions not in response, but as an initiator, for example, interference in the internal affairs of other countries, proactively due to attempts to pressure other countries, imposing political will, but you never know the reasons. Otherwise, these concerns are already internally rejected.

    While in our power structures there are followers of Yeltsin's liberal ideas, in which it is beneficial for them, as in the 90s of the last century, to surrender our country to the Yankees' needs, to ditch the economy that has begun to rise again with the next impoverishment of the people, to destroy the second army of Russia in the world, and only then hordes of Japanese from the east, Chinese and Turks from the south, Poles, Galician and Balts from the west, and from the north all the European Entente will rush across our borders. Our moneybags-oligarchs have long been sold to Washington and Brussels, and they will no doubt sell and betray Russia without any hesitation, warming their raking hands on this, and the fate of the Russian people will be like the fate of the North American Indians.
    Biden has already today accused Russia of all mortal sins, and made direct threats against our state, and we, guilty without guilt, will again swallow all this, and will curry favor, fawn at them, and cave in? Explain, Mr. President, how the whole bureaucratic army will behave now, we will surrender, or we will find new Minin and Pozharsky,
    so that our people know that Russia stood, stands, and will stand, and will not become like Ukraine and the Baltic farms.

    A line flashed in the news - VVP offered to organize its own human rights court. One thing is that the state court cannot be higher than the state. And here the union state will help ... What are the extra organs of the RF-RB for? Come up with 378 positions of the Kama Sutra, how a super-duper court will confront the rotten ECHR. And at the same time in a dominant position! Consider a couple of million lawsuits against the United States for the bombing of Yugoslavia and the Middle East - but there, the amerovsky lawyers will have calluses on their hands.
    An excellent answer in my opinion. You can also impose sanctions - to force McDonald's to rename hamburgers into sandwiches (we are still friends with the Germans).
    And most importantly, I almost forgot - WADA offended us, does not allow us to perform under the Russian tricolor and the anthem ... Any music, any flag, except yes? We don't mind - red with hammer and sickle, and the anthem too (I remember the old words better) will do?

        and how do you imagine the nationalization of Sberbank? 52% and so the property of the Russian government, the rest are scattered among the shareholders, even I own a hundred shares through a broker because it is more profitable than keeping money on a deposit. what are you going to buy back or just take away? then this banal theft will turn out, the more immediately a bunch of lawsuits and foreign assets of the savings bank will also be squeezed out to compensate for the losses of other shareholders. and to redeem - well, good luck to carve out money from the budget from other programs, including social ones - and this is a considerable amount for a minute. but gref, that gref, sooner or later he will get what he deserves, and it’s not a hack from a yellow website, but the investigation and the court

      Yes! It is with Ukraine. Purulent acne must be squeezed out even if it hurts (about losses). A clash with the United States is inevitable one way or another, and the defeated Nazi Ukraine is an excellent EU warning about the risks of a military confrontation with Russia.

            I don’t know, I don’t know. Numerical superiority in manpower in modern warfare is a necessary thing, but not necessary. And there is a precedent, for example, the 6-day war between Israel and the Arabs. Just like the events in the Far East under the USSR. The PLA army is good because it is developing rapidly and is well funded, but the results are not yet obvious. Actually, so far they have only their J-20, everything else is in the image and likeness of the USSR in the late 80s.

              You can compare the fleets.
              The number of tanks.
              And they will definitely surpass in industrial production.

      There is no war without losses. This is constantly forgotten by the cheers of the patriots.

      Probably think others will die for them request

    If Washington and Kiev respond with an offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, then take these territories into the Russian Federation, and at the same time expand the zone of Russian influence to the Dnieper, or better - to Odessa. At the same time, there will be options with Transnistria, the problem with the water supply to Crimea will be solved, and Ukraine will approach its historical borders, being cut off from the sea, becoming more negotiable.

    Your words, yes to God’s ears.

          First, I used the word expansion, not bloody battles.
          Secondly, expansion can be different. The war is hybrid, and it is not the Russian military that can go as far as Odessa, but local forces supported by Russia.
          PS
          I'm not a bloodthirsty monster, I just adequately assess the situation and look at it from the bell tower of Russia's national interests. I understand that in Ukraine they look at it differently. In my personal opinion, the war between the Russian Federation and Ukraine is simply inevitable, this problem was created in 2014. The later the issue is resolved, the bloodier it will be. Personally, I do not wish harm to the Ukrainians, but they are puppets in the hands of foreign puppeteers.
          It was necessary to solve the problem in 2014-2015, when the Armed Forces practically did not exist, and the price of the issue would be minimal. Why it was not done - questions to our Commander-in-Chief.

            I don't know how they look at this in Ukraine, but it is strange for me to hear declarations of love and dreams of starting a war as soon as possible. No one else has done more than Putin did to tear Ukraine away from Russia. There will be no war, no one needs it.

    All this is chatter for the internal consumption of the Yankees. In fact, only the signing of START-3, which does not fit in any way. We will judge by actions.

    How will Moscow have to respond to this Washington?

    Take Washington by storm?
    You can still stop selling hydrocarbons to Europe .. request

    Freeze the accounts of American politicians in Russian banks? Deny their closest relatives a residence permit in Russia and take away luxury real estate in Sochi and Crimea? Ban the supply of oil to the United States?

    Great idea. Let them feel on their own skin what it is good

    Disconnection of Russia from SWIFT, sanctions against domestic banks or an operation with the state debt of the Russian Federation are possible

    You don't even need to disable SWIFT. If the encryption protocols for the sites of banks, governments, etc. are withdrawn, they will all stop working. Such a pullback in 1990 sad

    and at the same time expand the zone of Russian influence to the Dnieper, and better - to Odessa

    They can provide the Armed Forces of Ukraine with weapons and equipment to make this seizure as bloody as possible for the attacking side.
    And the sanctions are different.
    A ban on trading in shares on most exchanges, an embargo on the purchase of hydrocarbons (here China will help out - it will always buy for 30-50% of the market price), revocation of Internet encryption protocols. Russia is NOT autonomous and will not be able to function normally as it.
    You can, of course, propose to solve material problems by conquests (like Germany during WWII), but this is a road to nowhere.

    For Alaska I will not say, but for Ukraine I can.
    There will be no bloody battles. After a week of active work by the Aerospace Forces on the military infrastructure of Ukraine, its army will scatter across the farms. Having changed into civilian or women's dress, they will still greet the passing columns of the Russian army with flowers. Then they will try to shit, but everyone is registered and will go to remove snow in Siberia. All. Create people's republics or one big - Novorossiya. For the main positions - the military of the Russian Federation. No former ukro-managers. You can trust the housing office and then under supervision. Restore economic ties that were severed during the collapse of the USSR (ports of Odessa, factories in Nikolaev, Zaporozhye, Dnepropetrovsk, etc.). If there is work, they will live. After some time, it will be possible to think about the federal (confederal) district.

    Author, will you personally go to Odessa by tank? Or, as usual, will you send the burnt Buryats? The Ukrainian Armed Forces today is not an almost non-existent army of 2014. How many Russian soldiers are you ready to put there for your non-imperial show-off? One thousand one hundred?

      Unlike many of my compatriots, I am not inclined to underestimate the Armed Forces of Ukraine. But also overestimate - too. Someone will fight to the death, and someone will run. The latter, I think, will be more.

      Those who are entitled to go to Odessa. And you shouldn't turn to this stupid propaganda technique like, why are you in a trench near Donbass? The one who is supposed to sit in the trench.

      One thousand one hundred losses - you turned it down. smile
