New US sanctions could be beneficial for Russia


On Thursday, April 15, the President of the United States signed a decree on the introduction of new sanctions against Russia, prohibiting American financial institutions from buying debt securities on the Russian market. However, are these measures hitting Moscow as hard as Washington expects?


According to the head of the Center political Research Institute economics RAS of Boris Shmelev, such restrictions can, to a certain extent, hit the Americans themselves, who already own Russian assets. The sanctions will complicate the work with Russian debt securities within the American market. After the ban on their purchase, they will sharply lose in value in the United States, which Russia can take advantage of.

The central bank will be able to redeem these securities at a lower price than the price at which they were sold. That is, in a sense, it is even beneficial for Russia.

- said the expert in an interview with reporters radio Sputnik.

The ban on attracting funds from the United States will also not hit the Russian economy too much - according to Shmelev, the Russian Federation has a sufficient amount of reserve funds. And although the state is deprived of the opportunity to obtain inexpensive loans in the West, this will not be a disaster for the country's financial system.

    - Well, well ... - It's time to seek profit ... - Hahah ...
    - Like Vasisualy Lokhankin from the novel by Ilya Ilf and Yevgeny Petrov "The Golden Calf" ...; who was ultimately whipped and he had no choice but to come to the sad conclusion: "Maybe this is the great homespun truth." ... - Well, what else remains ... - to relax and only the truth and to look for profit ... -Hahah ...

      Right! Exactly. Relax and have fun ... And what else the elite, averaged between Kozyrev and EBN, can offer, besides the cornucopia of "breakfasts"? ... Right! Do not piss on wheels - it's already good. And not just good, but even in grabbing the falling handles - extraordinary and wonderful, OOO! ..., and they themselves are outstanding managers! Isn't that "happiness"?

      It's just not clear - where does such a puppy delight come from? Now what? The bottom line is that. Now, even thinking about canceling or at least worthy resistance, say, zeroing the Russian anthem and flag at the Olympiads and championships - will it not be decent already out loud ?!

      How unnatural is the behavior? Under the circumstances.

      Life has come ...!

    If the Russian Federation has funds, then why all these bonds at all?
    I am a bit of a financier, but I cannot understand: the yield on Russian OFZs is about 5-6%, having sold these bonds, Russia buys American bonds with a yield of 1.5-2%.
    In parallel with this, it is de-dollarizing, trying to sort of get rid of dollars, and this imaginary getting rid of the pernicious influence of American imperialism leads to even greater losses.

      Are you a bit of a financier in the sense of counting a trifle in your pocket? The financier needs to explain what the bonds are for?

      A ban on raising funds from the United States too won't hit the economy hard Russia - according to Shmelev, the Russian Federation has a sufficient number of reserve of

      A little the financier did not understand the meaning of the proposal? You yourself quoted and did not understand?
      Why do you not understand why bonds are bought? Doesn't it seem strange to you to sit down at a casino table without chips? I mean, since people carry out some kind of operations, there must be at least some means, what is there to do with empty pockets?

      In parallel with this, it is de-dollarizing, trying to sort of get rid of dollars, and this imaginary getting rid of the pernicious influence of American imperialism leads to even greater losses.



      In general, citizen designer, you are the same financier as I am a ballerina. winked

      Inflation in Russia, according to preliminary data (2020) - 4,9% (most likely more), that is, the fat gain from bonds is virtually zero (maybe 0,5%), the USA (2020) - 1,3%. That is, a more profitable profit. Plus the dollar is a more profitable currency: for trade in the world - 44%, against 0,26% in Russian rubles.

    All the sanctions against Russia are useful to us ... Demshiz either changed her shoes or in the process ... We'd better drive the owners of the country into the house and live ...

    By the way, pay attention to how quickly the US Administration sang along in Warsaw, demanding the departure of three Russian diplomats from Poland.
    In turn, five hyenas of Europe will be expelled from Russia.

    I wonder why they hadn’t asked earlier that sanctions be imposed since they are so beneficial to the Russian Federation?
