NATO should no longer count on any concessions to Russia

On Wednesday, January 12, a meeting of the Russia-NATO Council will take place. On the eve of this event, Deputy Foreign Minister of the Russian Federation Sergei Ryabkov announced the increased role of Moscow in the European and world policy and called on the Alliance to take into account the new realities.

Even a layman understands that demanding concessions from Russia ... will no longer work. NATO needs to collect money and go to the borders of 1997

Ryabkov stressed.

At the same time, the deputy minister noted that the Western bloc has been trying for several decades to push Russia back into secondary roles and undermine its security. Now, after Moscow's return to the first roles in solving global problems, the West is no longer able to dictate its terms to the Russian Federation.

Sergei Ryabkov recalled that Russia will continue to insist on guarantees of its own security. The United States, with the support of its European satellites, is trying to throw the Kremlin out of balance and hardly accepts the position of the Russian side.

Earlier, the vice-speaker of the Federation Council, Konstantin Kosachev, expressed the idea that negotiations between Russia and NATO will end with a visible result if the members of the Western bloc and the Russian Federation discuss on equal terms.

    Do not hope that once using the weakness of Russia, you will receive dividends forever. Russians always come for their money. And when they come - do not rely on the Jesuit agreements that you have signed, supposedly justifying you. They are not worth the paper on which they are written. Therefore, it is worth playing with the Russians honestly, or not at all.

    It is likely that, in addition to the very resonance of Russian demands on the US and NATO, which fundamentally changes the perception of Russia by other countries and limits further "unfriendly" US moves in Eastern Europe, Russia is using NATO's rejection as a pretext for deploying new weapons. Apparently, these will be missile strike capabilities like the Dagger, further modifications of the Zircons (ground-to-ground), a possible quantitative increase in Calibers (also in the ground-to-ground modification) and the build-up of anti-satellite systems (S-550) and Peresvetov. All of these systems are new, in small, purely test quantities. To start a large-scale deployment of all this stuff, you need a reason. NATO and the US have kindly provided Russia with this excuse with their "no concessions!" what was required of them. Now you can safely and justifiably scale the quantitative composition of new developments. Without all this diplomatic gambit, it would have been more difficult to do.

      On its territory, Russia has long been free to shove all these terrible things in all corners, without asking permission from Uncle Sam, because he himself got out of all the treaties that were embarrassing him.
      Presumably, Putin's statement, which NATO, and first of all, the United States, will not approve of nirazu, obviously serves only one purpose - to untie the hands of Russia for the dashing trade with a stale loaf of anyone whom God will send.
      Serbia will receive Russian weapons, don't go to a fortune-teller, Syria will receive carte blanche to squeeze out pndses, and will also receive Russian weapons.
      Anyone who wants to plant a handful of Sam will receive Russian weapons.
      Venezuela will suddenly build factories for the production of Russian tanks and fighters, and in Caracas and Havana they will hang license plates of the 96rus series on cars.
      An ultimatum blackout will happen throughout the United States, and gasoline and diesel fuel in the tanks will curl up like milk, the satellites of the railroad cars will sprinkle peas from the sky, and in general it will become very sad to live in a country where everyone has a lot of weapons and the dollar has fallen sharply below the baseboard.
      Well, this is so, fantasies, of course.

      further modifications of Zircons (ground - ground)

      Zircons are ready to replace the Onyxes in the Bastions.
      And Iskander will easily accept Caliber. Is everything ready. hi

    pretext for deploying new weapons

    To the point of it, if the US missiles are in Ukraine = 0. There is no need for an excuse to strengthen its own defense, but Ukraine needs a solution now (yesterday). Tomorrow might be late. They will come in at the request of Zelensky and become bases. And then what?

    Let's see what happens on the 12th, well, I think it is pouring from empty to empty again. New weapons are good, but they are few. Maybe it's already worth doubling the offensive at least. (I served in 19956-1997) 25 years ago with us at 3! times more than it was .. under Yeltsin. Or the ultimatum could be the stamping of low-yield tactical nuclear weapons.

    What is the point of making unrealistic demands? Either the Russian leadership lives in its own world, or initially it is not going to come to an agreement. Then what is the point of negotiations?

      So call Putin and ask! In general, our president is always responsible for the bazaar, which means we need to untie our hands ...

    And you noticed Lavrov was pushed aside from the negotiations. And they appointed him as his deputy Ryabkov.

    It is not clear what the Russian Federation was counting on when putting forward deliberately unrealistic demands on the United States and NATO.
    It is unclear what Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov meant when he spoke of Moscow's increased role in European and world politics. The Russian Federation was considered an enemy as it is. They continue to spread rot with sanctions. As they dictated their terms, they continue. There were no political and economic concessions from the "West", and there are still no, except for those that are in the interests of the Western partners.
    The only thing that can be considered a success is that if in the pre-Putin period the Russian Federation was not considered at all, then with his arrival the Russian Federation improved its economy and defense capability, and, accordingly, independence. It outlined the sphere of its ambitions in the post-Soviet space and reached the level of a regional power, which made it difficult for the neocolonization of post-Soviet state formations and became across the throats of its Western partners.
    It would be nice if the vice-speaker of the Federation Council Konstantin Kosachev and other statesmen at least somehow substantiated their idea that the negotiations between Russia and NATO would end with a visible positive result for the Russian Federation, despite the fact that the members of the Western bloc are not going to discuss on equal terms , significantly surpassing the Russian Federation in all spheres with the exception of the military. Somehow I don’t remember when and with whom they discussed on equal terms.
