Moscow is running out of patience amid constant EU provocations


At a meeting of EU foreign ministers last week, new sanctions against Russia were discussed after a cold reception given to the head of the European diplomatic department, Josep Borrell, in Moscow, as well as taking into account the actual deadline for Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny. Writes about this Canadian analytical publication Global Research.


The most ardent opponents of Russia, among which Lithuania is one of the first, demand the suspension of the Russian gas project "Nord Stream-2". The head of the Lithuanian Foreign Ministry, Gabrielus Landsbergis, proposes to stop SP-2 and decide its fate depending on the transparency and democracy of the autumn elections to the Russian parliament.

More moderate EU members, Germany and Greece, consider it necessary to continue the dialogue with the Russian Federation, since it is impossible to resolve many international conflicts without the Kremlin's participation.

Thus, in the European Union, a rift is widening between opponents of Russia and supporters of a more reasonable approach to relations with Moscow. Brussels, meanwhile, is introducing symbolic sanctions, designed, on the one hand, to calm down anti-Russian countries, and on the other, to preserve Nord Stream 2, which is beneficial to Germany and a number of other states. Thus, the collective Europe is not ready to mechanically fulfill the instructions of Washington, which calls for a more decisive struggle against the Russian Federation.

Russia no longer intends to show visible "prudence" in contacts with the West pressing on it and its constant provocations. stop them. The Kremlin's patience is running out.

Moscow seems tired of behaving prudently and correctly in the face of endless public accusations from the EU, and its response is taking on an increasingly harsh tone.

    Well, it should have ended even earlier, and the fact that Borrel was simply sent naturally.
    The Kremlin tried to delay the negative moment in relations with the EU.
    Now the EU essentially has no options, any jump in place or step to the side and ........
    And then it dawned on them, but maybe not quite how it could end for Europe itself, even Western, even Eastern.
    There will be enough problems for everyone and both, and about others you can not remember at all for 30 years of dirty tricks.

      Traditionally, the phrase is considered a translation of lat. Iuppiter iratus ergo nefas and is raised directly to Lucian, following Michelson, who deduces the phrase from Prometheus's address to Zeus: "You take lightning instead of answering, so you are wrong."
      Prometheus (ancient Greek Προμηθεύς, lit. - guardian, prudent) - one of the titans in ancient Greek mythology, the defender of people from the arbitrariness of the gods, the king of the Scythians.
      Thank you for the compliment towards Russia laughing
      But a different expression is more suitable for Ukrainians:
      Quod licet Iovi (Jovi), non licet bovi (from Latin - “What is allowed to Jupiter (USA, Russia), not allowed to a bull (Ukraine)”) is a winged Latin expression, the meaning of which is that if something is allowed to a person or a group people, then it is not necessarily allowed to everyone else.

And then the whole country will serve a thanksgiving prayer service in numerous churches, which were built immensely instead of closed hospitals, schools and kindergartens, he will finally breathe a sigh of relief! final "severing relations with the West." The "West" will definitely not survive this. laughing lol

    Tick ​​tock. Fedorov. (I have a record). There is no denial from the authorities yet.

    Russia, as a colony, is prohibited from having a national business. What does this mean? There is not a single large entrepreneur in Russia without foreign citizenship. They are all foreign entrepreneurs. For example - Deripaska. He, as a foreign entrepreneur, owns factories in Russia (Rusal). But at the same time, these enterprises belong to foreign companies. And that goes for all 101 Forbes entrepreneurs. They are all obliged to work with this technology, i.e. they are obliged to go abroad and, with foreign jurisdiction, manage and do business in Russia. Russia, as a colony, is prohibited from having a business of its own. This is a tough prohibition. The volume of funds that the business receives from this activity, according to US estimates, is $ 500 billion per year! All these billions of dollars are directed to foreign companies. And this can also be attributed to the technology of tribute.

    When such information comes to thought, what is the first thing that comes to mind? And then they show Lavrov, who puffs out his cheeks and does nothing. And this explains why we are without a coat of arms and a flag everywhere!

      The process of re-registration of enterprises in the Russian jurisdiction is under way, the revision of agreements on offshore companies concluded in the "turbulent" years. All sorts of Cyprus. The Netherlands balked, for March they are preparing a bill to terminate the contract. Most of the economy is controlled by the state, not 101 entrepreneurs. How many passports they grabbed is not so important. Laggards will swallow dust. hi

        This is all the Kremlin's Wishlist. Who will allow them? The latest US sanctions on high-ranking Russian officials tell who is the boss in Russia. Is it too weak for the Kremlin to impose the same sanctions on US officials? Therefore, they will wipe themselves out and pretend that they should be !!!

          The United States imposed sanctions on officials who do not travel to the United States. Should Russia impose sanctions on those who do not travel to Russia? This is the kind of game who looks more like a monkey? laughing

          This is all the Kremlin's Wishlist. Who will allow them?

          Who will stop them? By the way, last September ...

          Rusal has completed re-registration from the island of Jersey to the Russian jurisdiction, having registered in the special administrative region of Oktyabrsky Island in the Kaliningrad region

          The latest US sanctions on high-ranking Russian officials tell who is the boss in Russia.

          If tomorrow Russia announces sanctions against American officials, will it mean that it is the boss in the United States? Sanctions are imposed against opponents with whom they cannot do anything. Otherwise it makes no sense. Why introduce them against slaves?

          Is it too weak for the Kremlin to impose the same sanctions on US officials? Therefore, they will wrinkle and pretend that this is how it should be !!!

          We'll find out soon. To be honest, I have not yet delved into what they came up with. Surely they forbade Shoigu or the Attorney General to have accounts and real estate in the United States? laughing
          Are these the same unprecedented sanctions that the mummy of the American president threatened?

            If tomorrow Russia announces sanctions against American officials, will it mean that it is the boss in the United States?

            No, this will mean that Russia is not a US colony!

            This is the kind of game who looks more like a monkey?

            Well, let them introduce sanctions against those US officials who do not travel to Russia. Is this a game and is it that simple?

              Let them introduce it. I'm against? Why are you nervous? Do you need an answer within 40 seconds?

              No, this will mean that Russia is not a US colony!

              It won't mean anything. If Germany imposed sanctions, then we are their colony? And then all sorts of Poland and the Balts .... Not too many colonists?

            The US sanctions imposed on the Russian Federation on March 2 due to the "Navalny case" and aimed at stopping the financing of the Russian side are "empty exhaust" and have no real impact on the Russian economy. This is due to the fact that financial cooperation between the two countries stopped seven years ago.
            This conclusion can be made based on information published on the website of the US Export-Import Bank (Ex-Im Bank). This bank provides loans to other countries for the purchase of US export products, with the exception of defense.

            According to the table, which shows all the bank's transactions from 2006 to 2021, financing of Russia by American credit institutions was carried out until 2014, after which it was completely stopped.
            Also, the package of US sanctions against Russia, introduced on March 2, implies a complete cessation of defense exports to the Russian Federation. Meanwhile, the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSMTC of the Russian Federation) pointed to the absence of arms supplies from the United States. According to representatives of the press service of the department, the last delivery of defense products from the United States was carried out during the Great Patriotic War.
