Washington disrupts Biden's proposed meeting with Putin


The story of the correspondence confrontation between the Russian and American presidents continued. Recall that Joe Biden in a scandalous interview with the media called Vladimir Putin a "killer", to which we all were justifiably offended. In response, President Putin ironically wished his overseas colleague "health", clearly hinting at his venerable age and related problems, and also called "Sleepy Joe" to some kind of public discussion on the air. And this is how it all turned out now.


First, the White House invited both China and Russia to take part in the international summit on climate change. Due to pandemic restrictions, the meeting of the heads of 40 states is to be held at the end of the month of April online. Then, on April 13, a telephone conversation took place between Biden and Putin, during which the American president proposed to hold a personal meeting of the two countries and discuss all the problems of our difficult relationship, which was announced in an official press release:

President Biden reaffirmed his goal of building a stable and predictable relationship with Russia in line with US interests and proposed a third country summit meeting in the coming months to discuss the full range of issues facing the US and Russia.

US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken spoke of the need for a bilateral presidential summit in the next few weeks. Later, famous for her inimitable style, White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki announced that this meeting could take place in the summer. However, the Kremlin is clearly not inclined to rush with it, which was directly stated by Dmitry Peskov, who refused to name a specific date. And now Washington has made a new move.

According to The New York Times and Reuters, the United States intends to impose sanctions on Russia's sovereign debt. A ban will be imposed on the purchase of federal loan bonds from the Central Bank and the RF Ministry of Finance. This will be a very tough restrictive measure, since a quarter of Russia's sovereign state debt belongs to foreign investors, including American banks, and our financial institutions expected to place securities worth 1 trillion rubles to cover it. Sanctions against OFZ should be part of the so-called "hellish" ones that have been scaring us for the past few years. And this, apparently, will finally happen.

But restrictions in the financial sector are far from all that awaits Russia in the near future. According to the respected Bloomberg agency, due to "interference in the American elections" another 20 Russian legal entities and 12 individuals will be sanctioned. Also, 10 more Russian diplomats will be expelled from the United States, and some media outlets allegedly controlled by our special services and "caught" in spreading disinformation will fall under the gun of the American Themis.

Hmm, so we "talked" about building "predictable and stable relationships." "Sleepy Joe" instead of a public discussion, defiantly held out his right hand to his Russian colleague, and hit him in the stomach with his left. Will a reconciliatory meeting between the two presidents take place against such a political background? It is highly doubtful. Then why is Washington openly ready to aggravate relations with Moscow?

At first, the leadership of the US Democratic Party is clearly determined to continue to put pressure on Vladimir Putin personally. It is no secret that a black cat has long been running between them, and the "globalists" are ready to continue to put pressure on the Kremlin in order to get the Russian president to leave and be replaced by a more comfortable pro-Western one. policy... If the White House wanted to really normalize relations with Russia, then there would be no public statements about the "killer" and packages of tough sanctions before the announced meeting. Undoubtedly, after the introduction of new restrictions, Moscow will not be able to respond to Washington with any positive step. The personal meeting between Joe Biden and Vladimir Putin has been postponed indefinitely, while the American authorities have done everything so that the Russians appear to be guilty of this in the eyes of the world community. Well, how is it? Did "Sleepy Joe" hold out the hand of friendship? He held it out. But Putin himself refused. Sanctions against the sovereign state debt of the Russian Federation? So something else, and for other things.

Secondly, the general geopolitical context should be taken into account. In fact, China is today even a greater adversary for the United States than Russia. The main goal of Washington is to weaken the PRC, and also not to allow the formation of some kind of real alliance between Beijing and Moscow, where the first violin will objectively play the Celestial Empire by virtue of its economic power. The Americans clearly intend to weaken China from within, using the Taiwan factor. Note that just the day before, a representative delegation from Washington went to Taipei, to which the continent reacted extremely negatively. The Chinese media are now actively discussing the topic, why not try to return the island, as Russia returned the peninsula. The PRC naval forces are being concentrated not far from Taiwan. It is clear that while on the part of Beijing this is so far a demonstration of determination, and not a real preparation for an amphibious assault.

Why is Washington preparing to introduce a package of severe restrictive measures against Moscow at the same time? Yes, so that the Kremlin emphatically stayed away from a possible conflict, not being too zealous as a reliable "rear" for the Celestial Empire. If so, then the United States is killing two birds with one stone.

    An invitation to a "meeting" is a Hollywood action-style trap. To accept such an invitation means to find yourself in a deliberately disadvantageous, possibly even dangerous situation, since it is at this time that the United States may start a war in Donbass.

    Bad conclusions. It is not clear what the author's logic is:
    with one blow to Russia to kill two birds with one stone. The scheme of rallying China and Russia in the face of a common, really enemy looks logical. And these constant strikes, now at Russia, now at China, only add to the determination in this rallying.

    We must pay tribute to the "Washington regional committee", they set serious traps. If we follow the logic, after the appointment of the date of the meeting, and the Americans are in a hurry, there will be an offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, or a serious provocation on the border of the Crimea or LDNR. The Russian Federation answers - the meeting was disrupted, we are the aggressors! With all the ensuing consequences.
    The ball is still on the side of the Kremlin.

    predictable relationship with Russia in line with US interests

    From this position, only slaves can meet with the owner. And it’s good that they didn’t agree. There is a small hope that the brains, without concussion, will stand in the correct row.

    so we "talked" about building "predictable and stable relationships."

    First, you need to return your own, and then you can talk.

    A ban will be imposed on the purchase of federal loan bonds from the Central Bank and the RF Ministry of Finance.

    Yes, I dream about it. We will quickly nationalize all enterprises and build a socialist economy with a different government.

    The United States intends to impose sanctions on Russia's sovereign debt.

    Why not pay off this sovereign debt with US dollars before the digital yuan has been earned? Throw off toxic assets.
    And regarding the meeting - you need to agree to a meeting in Beijing! Well, not in a NATO country to hold a meeting?

    Putin does not look like a donkey running after a painted carrot, but on the Capitoline Hill, apparently, they think differently.

    Well, you shouldn't cry about the state debt - sanctions will make it cheaper and it won't be difficult to buy it out. In addition, it is not large and is taken only because of the high internal rates and unwillingness to spend their resources. It's cheaper this way, but no more. In the country, a frenzied budget surplus and unused money are not pecked by chickens. The country lends to the left and right. But the ruble should be strengthened by at least half. And this is just the desire of the economic bloc - which needs a cheap ruble - What to do - here we have our clans of traders (the so-called elite) weld on these movements of the national currency - This is not patriotic - but it is good for them.

    oh, those evil American dwarfs!) such actions are more likely to indicate self-doubt and lack of a clear position on Russia. 100 years is the same! nothing new ... boring, gentlemen. Do we need such a toxic relationship? and for the United States itself, all this may end not in the same way and not in what they predicted for themselves there)

    You do not take into account one important nuance, which I mentioned in the text.
    Only equals can unite. The economies of the PRC and the Russian Federation are so incomparable in favor of China that there will be no rallying, but absorption. This is the first thing.
    And the second, which is not directly mentioned, but is always present between the lines. Not all representatives of our so-called The "elites" need a mortal, principled confrontation with the United States, and even more so, absorption by the Chinese. They would gladly find a compromise and come to an agreement with the Americans. Democrats are working for this audience.

    This implies not only a change of government, but of the entire socio-economic system. Our "elites" will definitely not agree to this voluntarily.

    when deeds differ from words, you should not expect good. Biden created the appearance of the US commitment to de-escalation of the situation, but immediately ruled out the possibility of this de-escalation by deeds - sanctions, thus booking himself the role of the protagonist in this drama. Consequently, Russia, having renounced "peace", will become an antagonist, which will allow the US administration to use tougher measures against our country in subsequent incidents. Is the US ready to really fight with Russia in Ukraine? Not. But they may well give the green light to Ukraine at the beginning of hostilities, with the expectation that we will merge Ukraine, but we will get a cold war with Russia, which will be the beginning of a more global process of developing confrontation, at the end of which the world will receive either a tough cold war with China, or a real war where the US debt will be zeroed and the entire system will be reformatted again.
    But there is still a hope that he imposed sanctions because he could not but introduce them, the public would not understand such a turn. In essence, the sanctions are not so serious. Perhaps Biden will end the policy of containing Russia, since he is aware that the country has serious challenges on the horizon - China, the dollar (debt) and other problems, such as the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, etc. To be deprived of Russia in this chaos, a completely adequate country, maybe even the most adequate on the world stage, given its involvement in resolving conflicts around the world, its influence and capabilities, will not meet the interests of the United States itself.

    By the Sshasov authorities, everything was done in such a way that in the eyes of the world community, the Russian

    That is why he will go, Putin is not Khrushchev, who, in response to the rudeness of his Western “colleagues” at the UN, said that the USSR could go off so badly that then there would be no one to get out.

    Why is Washington preparing to introduce a package of severe restrictive measures against Moscow at the same time?

    War of annihilation. As former Sshasovsky secretary of state Clinton said, the strategic task is to defragment the Russian Federation.
    Through sanctions on wealthy people and their assets, remove them from the circle of the elite, reduce incomes and cause dissatisfaction with Vladimir Putin's policies.
    Stagnate the economy and make it spend the NWF and other available resources to maintain pants and social stability.
    The most powerful party of the Russian Federation, the RUIE, had its own separate opinion on many aspects of financial, tax and other policies before, and external pressure and internal extortions in favor of the poor are clearly pushing for behind-the-scenes intrigues and tacit support of the “democrats”, creating a classic situation when the upper classes cannot to govern in the old way, but the lower classes do not want to live in the old way.
    The PRC understands the threat posed to them in the event of “defragmentation” or destabilization of the Russian Federation, and this is the guarantee of our “friendship”.
