Foreign Ministry: Putin already has options for action proposed by military experts on his table


Amid tensions on Russia's western borders, the Kremlin is considering plans and possibilities for a force-based scenario. About this in an interview with the TV channel Rtvi said the deputy head of the Russian Foreign Ministry Sergei Ryabkov.


Military experts, as was officially said, constantly offer the President options in case the situation deteriorates.

- said the deputy minister.

However, according to Ryabkov, such plans should not be discussed in detail in the media - this can shake an already turbulent situation. The diplomatic services must do their utmost to ensure that problems are not resolved by military means.

During the interview, they also discussed the possibility of Russia's "return" to Cuba and other Latin American countries with regard to the construction of military bases and the supply of weapons. At the same time, Ryabkov avoided answering the questions directly and stressed that he would not like to confirm or exclude anything.


Formerly political scientist Yevgeny Satanovsky allowed the likelihood of a military conflict between Russia and NATO if Ukraine and Georgia are admitted to the western bloc. Meanwhile, the secretary general of the alliance, Jens Stoltenberg, believes that Moscow has no right to veto the entry of other countries into this organization.

    Cuba, Latin America. God! What are you speaking about! We can't figure it out under our noses. They entered Kazakhstan with a whistle and flew out in the same way. Everything has become even worse than it was. US missiles will be not only in Ukraine, but also in Kazakhstan. That's it, you can't hide in Siberia already! It is still possible beyond the Arctic Circle, but they will get it there. And everything from the indecision of the Russian authorities, yes, something, the outright betrayal of the Russians, starting from Transnistria and Donbass ending with the Baltic states.

      How are you going to hide behind the Arctic Circle? There has always been defenseless territory. Even the Germans in the Second World War roamed there.

    One gets the impression that no one in Moscow had any illusions about negotiations with the United States, NATO and the OSCE, and the whole idea of ​​​​negotiations was required only in order to receive a documented refusal as a historical justification for any actions of the Russian Federation.
    In a week, the United States will give an answer in writing, and in a month or two after that, we may find out the decision of the Russian Federation.

      The US most likely will not give a clear answer on paper that could be considered a definitive yes or no. Most likely there will be vague wording that they are a defensive bloc and all actions are related to the fear of Russian aggression.
      On the merits of the answer, of course, we will be able to interpret, but this will be our interpretation, no matter how. But they can always answer that it was an intermediate, not final position in the process of negotiations on a very complex set of issues.

      What were the suggestions for?
      For thirty years now, they in the West have not understood why NATO is exactly what, why, for what purpose, against whom, etc.

      There is, as it were, a position: NATO IS NECESSARY, why, so don’t ask stupid questions, everyone knows that NATO IS NECESSARY!
      Now the process of reflection and discussion will probably be launched for a deep clarification of what it is for. If you go into specifics on all aspects, then there will be different opinions and disagreements.

      It's like a story about a centipede that successfully crawled forward until it was asked how it manages with 40 legs and does not stumble. The centipede thought for a moment and stood up.

      There were no illusions. But at least they heard something, their analysts are working on the material. What will be the conclusions - we'll see.

    If we (Russians) can only guess how much money stolen from us lies in Western banks, then they know the exact figures. And sources of enrichment. And encourage theft and export of capital.
    Until we see decisive measures to curb the export of capital, while citizens of other states sit in the government and the State Duma, while outright enemies are in charge of the financial system of the Russian Federation, until it is possible to kill citizens of the Russian Federation (Donbass) with impunity, mock them in Transnistria and the Baltic States (yes, everywhere) - there will be no sense. At least crap yourself, from your own pouting on TV.

    Am I the only one seeing this? And where are Putin, Bortnikov, Kolokoltsev?

      Well, you got excited about Chukhonia! Do you propose to destroy Estonia (because the rest of the Baltic is Livonia), as well as Finland, Karelia, the western regions of the Leningrad region to Yam-Izhora (and, by the way, to Kolpino), the Podporozhsky district, the west of the Vologda region?
      You must follow the words!
      I did not lose sight of what was said "the destruction of fascist regimes .."

    Apparently, another ultimatum lies on the President's desk. The question is which one? There was an ultimatum to withdraw from the plutonium treaty with the United States, there were cartoons with "Peresvets", "Petrels", "Poseidons" and other terrible threats, there was a hope "that they should listen now." DO NOT LISTEN!!! Even the most recent ultimatum (which is not yet on the table) - by analogy with the latest Chinese warning - will probably be listened to, but "will be beaten", as they say in Russia. And not only is it not scary for the West, but it's just FUNNY!!! (FOR OUR SOVIET MOTHERLAND)

      It seems that they called it "offers from military experts." Kuzhegotovich brought his proposals in a RED folder)

      In general, specific actions can be different, in Ukraine, one of the first that cannot be played back later, even if the West agrees with the requirements, is the recognition of the LDNR.

      If the United States decides to announce sanctions for this, then the answer is mirrored.
      In terms of economics, we can also give a serious answer to all companies in Russia, demand that shares be re-registered on foreign exchanges (New York, London) for Russian ones. This is a blow to the dollar (the number of dollars remains the same, while the number of assets denominated in them is reduced, going under other currencies). Taking into account the general crisis in the United States and the fact that even the lever for managing the economy in the form of a discount rate has broken down, where they do not pull it, the desired effect has long been gone, this can generally finish them off.

        The question is not the actions of the United States, but how the President will once again puff out his cheeks. Regarding the deployment of the RF Armed Forces in Latin America, the United States replied that they would deal with this harshly ... AND I BELIEVE THESE WORDS. HERE IS PUTIN'S ULTIMATUM .... 20 years .. and I don't believe

          It is called an ultimatum in the West.
          From our side it was called a proposal.

          With regard to specific actions of a "military-technical" nature, our Foreign Ministry did not make a single specific "promise".
          What is actually right, there is no reason to limit yourself in the steps that you are going to take or, on the contrary, to take on the obligation to do something. The situation may change, some options may become better or worse. There was no deadline for a response. It is also correct that the "partners" should not be given a breakdown of their actions so that they can prepare for them, for example, carry out informational propaganda pumping.

          About the deployment of missiles in Cuba, obviously, it also did not come from our Foreign Ministry. As already mentioned, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs does not specifically specify, i.e. The answer can be whatever we see fit.

          As far as I understand, there was a press question to the Foreign Ministry about missiles in Cuba, of course, ours answered that if we decide that the answer can be anything. Those. they just didn't deny it. Why limit yourself again? Suddenly, something really appears in Latin America, and they will tell us that you promised not to place it or it won’t appear, then again they will say that they were afraid.

          Just like with the "attack on Ukraine", the West and Ukraine themselves came up with and rang out, now if there is some kind of provocation in Ukraine and they receive an answer, they also warned that Putin had an insidious plan, if nothing happens, they will say that they were frightened.

    How will they convince the Cuban authorities to approve the deployment of missiles?
