Putin threatened Biden with a complete break in relations with the United States


On Thursday, December 30, telephone talks were held between the presidents of Russia and the United States. The main topics of conversation were the situation around Ukraine, anti-Russian sanctions and relations between Moscow and Washington.


Joseph Biden pointed out to Vladimir Putin the possibility of introducing new large-scale sanctions if the escalation on the border with Ukraine continues, of which the United States blames Russia. But, according to the aide to the Russian president, Yuri Ushakov, Putin in this case allowed a complete break in relations between Russia and the United States. At the same time, relations between the Russian Federation and the West in the general sense will also suffer greatly.

According to the Russian leader, it is not so much compromises with NATO or the United States that are important for Moscow as ensuring its own security. As Ushakov noted, Biden was sympathetic to this thesis of the Russian side and voiced its intention not to deploy offensive strike weapons on the territory of Ukraine. Putin emphasized that this is a very important point included in the demands of Russia, which were transferred earlier to the American partners.

During the talks, the US President also stressed the "unacceptability" of the movement of Russian units near the border with Ukraine. In response, Putin said that the Russian Federation would behave in the same way as the Americans would behave in a situation where offensive weapons are stationed near their borders.

    Generally expected, Biden sent Putin on an erotic journey. At the same time, he threatened with sanctions from hell. That is, we were told - you must sacrifice your safety for the sake of McDonald's, Pepsi-Cola, iPhones, trips abroad, the loss of famous brands in Russia. Now Putin will be under tremendous pressure from the Russian elite, who live in the United States and Europe and have real estate and bank accounts there. Now all this can really be lost .... What Biden said orally that they would not deploy offensive weapons is a lie. Systems deployed in Romania and Poland can easily fire cruise missiles, which are offensive weapons. It is alarming that Putin spoke two weeks ago about the impossibility of deploying NATO forces near our borders. Now we are talking about the impossibility of deploying NATO strike systems. That is, NATO personnel in Ukraine and in Eastern Europe can be located.

      Do not count your chickens before they are hatched. So far, we are reading a free retelling of the extract published in the media from what Ushakov saw fit to tell.
      Judging by our actions before the January talks, we are taking a position adequate to the situation in which we were put. Otherwise, we would have calmly celebrated the New Year and waited for a meeting with "partners".

    If it starts in Donbass, you can breathe, breathe out and boldly start doing what needs to be done - in Ukraine, Kazakhstan, etc., regardless of the sanctions that have been, are and will be.

      I think you are right. We cannot prevent Biden from issuing instructions to Zelenskiy on January 2.
      But we can use the situation to our advantage, to the fullest

    Who will benefit more from this and who will lose more? What will happen to the USA? "Will be covered with a copper basin"? Or will Russia impose sanctions on them ?! wink

      You are trying to obscure the straight line with "curves". Ancient Chinese wisdom says it's impossible.

      Teaser. Not only sanctions can be imposed on America, but something that America will start to stink indefinitely and for a long time.

      If you have real estate in the United States, it's time to sell it. Those who have nothing in the US have nothing to lose. Putin warned - you will be tortured to swallow dust.

    To give a direct answer, of course, "the tongue does not turn," or, more precisely, "the fingers do not bend."
    So GDP broke off relations with the United States - and calculate further, what will happen?

      Nothing will happen. If ... Yes, there is always an "if". But there are fewer and fewer of them. Perhaps this is the right direction. When we tear it apart - then we'll see?)

    It turns out that for the sake of continuing the war and supporting the separatists, Putin is ready for anything, even for a break with the United States. So this is a no brainer.

    At a time when the US is not doing very well and it faces a confrontation with China, Russia declares that it is ready for a Cold War in Europe if the US does not recognize its concerns. In general, the United States was striving for this, creating provocations, but relied on its European allies, wanted to drag them into the Cold War against Russia. Now, apparently, the European heavyweights are not ready for this. The United States is calculating its options with those countries that are ready - Poland, Romania, the Baltic States, England. If it seems to them that this is enough, the negotiations will proceed according to a negative scenario. Or they will agree on the status quo, where Russia will not side with China in subsequent events.
