Russia left reserve and "very sensitive" sanctions against the United States


Moscow is still keeping in reserve painful and "very sensitive" countermeasures against Washington for introduction next anti-Russian sanctions. On April 16, 2021, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov mentioned this in the process of a joint briefing with his Serbian counterpart Nikola Selakovic.


Lavrov explained that the measures mentioned relate to American business. He recalled that the Russian Federation found a normal way out of any difficult situations. Then he clarified that Moscow will do this in the future.

For obvious reasons, we do not have comparable levers of influence on the United States of this magnitude (on entire sectors economics - Ed.), Although this scale (American impact - Ed.) Is estimated by our experts as absolutely on the shoulder of our economy. I think it will be so

Said the minister.

The head of the department has no doubts that the calculations of the Russian specialists are correct. At the same time, he did not even hint about what kind of impact on American business could be discussed. However, this is understandable, since Lavrov's sphere of activity is foreign policy work.

Regarding foreign policy, Lavrov was more specific and verbose. The functionary described in detail the future problems of the Americans in the diplomatic field in the Russian Federation.

Lavrov said that Moscow is denouncing the "open land" treaty with Washington, and that it will soon become very difficult for US diplomats to travel across Russia. In the Russian Federation, mirror measures will be taken for the expulsion of 10 Russian diplomats from the United States. Moscow will begin to restrict and terminate the activities of US funds and organizations that interfere in Russian affairs. The hiring of citizens of the Russian Federation and third countries in the US diplomatic missions will be prohibited, the number of business trips of employees of the State Department and other US departments to American diplomatic missions on the territory of the Russian Federation will be limited. In addition, 8 US administration officials will be included in the Russian sanctions list.

      We are not strong in such matters; last summer there was a stall with strawberries from the state farm on the Yasenevo metro station. Good, people tried it, took it with pleasure ... I also took it ... I confirm ...

    In my opinion, all these "body movements" are caused by internal problems in the United States. This is dubious legitimacy for numerous violations during the elections and migrants.
    "Debriefing" on the elections continues, all sorts of inconvenient details come to light. Hence all these tales about Russian hackers, they say, they are to blame for the SolarWinds jambs. To say that the software in this sharashkin cantor is such that the numbers on the number of voters changed by themselves on the air, they simply cannot. After all, this is a hail on a hill, the technological leader of IT giants, Google, Tweeters, and here is how to do it
    The fact that in this situation it turns out that Biden was appointed by the Russians, apparently it does not occur to them lol
    At the same time, they substantiate the work on "ensuring cybersecurity", within the framework of CYBER FLAG 21-1, these figures will shake our Internet. Interestingly, they will work from Britain, France, Denmark and .. Estonia laughing These radishes have been built up on the farm right at our borders. sad
    They will stop letting in migrants, and they will say that Putin is to blame. According to the legislation, during the period of the State of Emergency it is impossible to enter the country without vaccination. By the way, now you can shave anyone into the army, and if you get out of the country, you can deprive you of your citizenship. But this is most likely just an interesting detail.

    As for the sanctions themselves, we are missing interesting details. Any actions now come under scrutiny

    misleading or structured transactions or transactions in order to circumvent any US sanctions, including through the use of digital currencies or assets or the use of physical assets

    That is, any financial transaction that is considered an attempt to interfere with or circumvent the sanctions imposed by the United States entails the seizure of accounts and property, including those belonging to spouses or adult children.

    And this is the most interesting

    Section 1. All property and interests in property held in the United States, which subsequently passes to the United States or which or which subsequently comes to the possession or control of any person in the United States of the following persons are blocked and cannot be transferred, paid for, exported , withdrawn or otherwise processed

    If I understand correctly, the seized property becomes the property of the United States and in the future can be transferred to any person in the United States.
    Will rob yes Now all the property of the account, any property of the Russians and their relatives is mining. If desired, Kirkorov's apartment can be taken away laughing I will observe with interest the body movements of cunning fellow citizens. After all, now all that remains is to smile through tears and make patriotic speeches. After all, you won't even complain to anyone about taking away undeclared property laughing
    And after the cancellation of the state of emergency, the restrictions are not automatically lifted. How you need to please the Americans to appreciate the efforts and return everything is anyone's guess. winked
    So there will be serious bickering. I do not exclude the introduction of such measures already in Russia. It's a shame, after all, when they take away everything that is acquired by back-breaking labor wassat
    As far as I understand, this also applies to the property of companies.
    Follow Biden's petition link.

      the United States deprives itself of the opportunity to attract Russian officials and entrepreneurs to its side. rob indiscriminately, like on a high road, and that's it! Naturally, the nouveau riche will now sell their properties in the states and spend "vacation pay" in luxury countries. Who benefits from all this?

        In my opinion they are trying to do what they can. They are looking for how and on whom to put pressure on, they have simply forgotten how to act differently. So you want to feel like a hegemon, but it doesn't work, such a sweat is a sad story crying
        Well, for officials, businessmen and simply believers in the city on the hill, good luck in evacuating property acquired by back-breaking labor. Warned 2 years ago.

          Well that was recalled. Soon 20 years will be "dust" .. And it befell the same as other promises ...

          Abramovich from Chelsea was straightforward to look for dust .... Usmanov and his colleagues managed to visit the record residents of the Britons' dust. Suing in London among themselves for the "non-Russian" Norilsk Nickel.
          The children of deputies and politicians have managed to grow up over the hill, like in the dust ..

            First, 2 years ago, not 20 years ago.
            Secondly, what kind of court are we talking about? Metalloinvest sold all 1,79% of Norilsk Nickel in 2017.
            https://www.vedomosti.ru/business/articles/2017/07/24/725437-metalloinvest-nornikelya

            Thirdly, how many and what children did the deputies and politicians manage to grow up in 2 years? What do they feed them with?
            I suppose you invented a period of 20 years yourself, solely for tying to Putin, rolled a ball in your pants and show it. Did he let everyone go offshore?

    And everywhere they sounded already. Garbage, Russia has nothing to answer. Will Titanium stop selling? So the Americans will quickly buy from others. And the grandmother is sacred. Titanium was sold to Ukraine.

        Acceptable price - i.e. just cheap. I looked in the internet, YUSA itself and extracts and produces and buys and sells the largest pile of titanium.
        And on steel, aluminum, etc., the Americans also raised their duties earlier. oligarchs drove podshovke, take, take, take ...

      So what? The Russian economy is not afraid of the depreciation of the ruble, since the trade balance (foreign trade balance) is positive. Well, Russians travel less abroad, developing domestic tourism and thus saving money inside the country. And the fact that foreign-made electronics have risen in price is damage to foreign business - they buy less equipment. In any case, there is no crisis.

    The same song. Already in the title of the article, there is again a cheerful and cowardly wording:

    Russia left reserve and "very sensitive" sanctions against the United States

    Why "left"? Why did the Chinese show the horseradish to America the next day after the kipish in Anchorage, and Laurel "left something in stock" there?
    As in that film: "Yes, I'll give it up, give it up. Half. Then" ...
    Well, and then, the usual phrases from the category of "as always" are already flowing:
    - diplomats from the USA COMING SOON it is very difficult to move around Russia;
    - in RF WILL measures were taken to expel 10 Russian diplomats from the United States;
    - Moscow Will start restrict and terminate the activities of funds and organizations from the United States that interfere in the affairs of Russia;
    - will the hiring of Russian citizens at the US diplomatic mission is prohibited.
    Well, and so on. As in an ordinary courtyard quarrel among punks: "I'll show you later," "you'll wash yourself with blood," "tomorrow my bro will tear you to pieces." Most of all, the wording of future obligations (I hope not only me) - "it will soon", "measures will be taken", "we will begin to limit", etc. But for the last 10 years, this sounds CONSTANTLY UNFACTORY. They threw out a bucket of shit on Russia, and Laurel - "we will arrange for you (tomorrow) ...". They shit on their heads again - "Moscow will take action tomorrow (but tomorrow) ..."
    Try not to sell titanium, nuclear fuel, rocket engines to America. Look at the reaction (there is nothing to lose anyway), and then we'll see ...

      Are you normal or not? Probably, you think that such activities are completed in 1 day? We snapped our fingers - and voila, everything appeared! It's time for you to return from heaven to earth. Sanctions against Russia have been worked out for a long time, prepared, and then introduced. Accordingly, the answer must also be worked out - it will take time. For example, all funds and non-profit organizations funded by the West cannot be closed in a week.

      Why "left"?

      To have a trump card in the sleeve. Without trump cards, the likelihood of losing a confrontation rises sharply.

    Lavrov announced everything correctly. Let them be tormented by conjectures. He only mentioned the countermeasures, and they already fucked up. Biden introduced an emergency mode. Made an address to the nation. Is it just that? Our nerves will be stronger.
