The expert called the possible response of Moscow to the sanctions of Brussels

On Sunday, January 30, the head of European diplomacy, Josep Borrell, wrote in his blog that Brussels plans to impose sanctions on Russia that will affect its strategic industries. That is, Russian production may lose high-tech machine tools, turbines, microchips and other products supplied from Germany, France and other EU countries.

If the EU takes such a step, Russia may partially or completely refuse to comply with patent law

- said economist Anton Lubich in an interview with the newspaper LOOK.

According to the expert, the Russian Federation, in response to sanctions measures, may waive patents when using the intellectual property of the EU countries, which will allow Russians to copy European products. China followed this path in the 90s.

However, realizing the rejection of patent rights, Russian manufacturers will need time to provide the country with the necessary goods and technology. In particular, the production of drones, the provision of the Crimean peninsula with water, and other important infrastructure and military projects may suffer due to new restrictions.

New European sanctions will also affect the general population of Russia, since foreign equipment is involved in many business areas (coffee machines, combines, meat processing equipment, etc.).

    in the West, they do not understand that Russia is adapting to sanctions. The next sanctions will make Russia even more independent. When Russia no longer has anything significant to tie to the West, then Russia will be able to respond on the merits without risk to itself.

    The fact that our economists are discussing possible responses to possible sanctions from Borrell's twitter is wonderful. There are no sanctions, but there is something to talk about. Will they still be a grandmother in two ... Sitting in Brussels, of course, you can speak for Germany, France and others, but it’s not a fact that it will work.
    It's a little unclear what you mean...
    How can it hurt

    providing the Crimean peninsula with water and other important infrastructure and military projects.

    Do you mean desalination and plan to buy equipment in Europe? What other projects may suffer and how is not clear. Well, since it became interesting what kind of economist, I looked. Here, in case anyone is interested.

    This has been talked about for a long time. Getting out of the patent agreement is something like "sanctions from hell."

    1. machine tools, turbines, microchips and other products supplied from Germany, France and other EU countries do not change every day, and import substitution has significantly reduced the dependence of the Russian Federation on the supply of machine tools, turbines, microchips and other products supplied from Germany, France and other countries EU, plus there are workarounds and other providers.
    2. New European sanctions will not greatly affect the population of Russia, since foreign equipment (coffee machines, combines, meat processing equipment, etc.) will easily replace China, Taiwan, Japan, India, Indonesia, Thailand and other state entities, and the EU will lose the largest market for its consumer goods in Europe.
    3. Patent law initially serves as a subject of trade, strengthening the dominance of some over others, dividing the world into masters and slaves, hinders the development of developing state entities and serves as one of the tools for their political and economic enslavement and robbery.
    If the PRC had at one time observed patent law, environmental standards and other Western restrictions, it would never have achieved an economic breakthrough and would not have become what it has become today.
    4. A really big problem for the Russian Federation could be disconnection from international payment systems (the existing Russian analogue is intended for internal use, with which only about two dozen foreign banks work without much enthusiasm), a ban on exchange transactions and the use of the dollar and other reserve currencies - pounds, euros, francs, yen, arrest of gold reserves and accounts of legal entities, other measures aimed at undermining the economy and destabilizing the internal situation of the Russian Federation.
    5. The Russian Federation is a gigantic pantry of all existing natural resources in unlimited quantities, and therefore has its own levers to counter imperialist aggression.
    The only problem is that in the domestic market, incomes are subject to state regulation, and the lion's share of the profits is received by big capital in the West, and this is a time bomb under the Russian Federation to undermine which all Western sanctions are aimed at.

    There are few markets for high-tech production of means of production. She, due to the low exchange rate of the ruble, is several times more expensive in some places and somehow produced in the Russian Federation, and this despite the fact that the pledged depreciation period is only 8 years. In general, the transition to prom. Western technology undermined its own base and decently increased operating costs, nullified its own promising developments. And back this long and difficult road is not paved. It will not be easy to overcome the consequences of the politics of the 90s with the 2000s.

      Get out of "patent law"? And How? Like say we're waiving patent rights? In principle, the right direction is that Russia hasn’t patented anything lately anyway, and the few patents that do appear sometimes are sold because it can’t protect its right anywhere.

    Twenty-five again. Again intimidation, threats. But what about Putin? And we do not care, we will only become stronger! Well, why don't we? If it were not for the Soviet "galoshes" and there is nothing to answer.

    Privatization. The cost of the largest Russian enterprises is more than $1 trillion, the treasury received $7,2 billion. According to the conclusion of the Accounts Chamber: "Privatization contributed to the establishment of control by foreign entities over strategically important enterprises of the defense complex

    (BosogonTV - Mikhalkova)
    But one has only to say: "Wait to continue imposing sanctions, we will recognize privatization as illegal and return it to the state!" But what is it really?

    It is envisaged to privatize <...> federally owned shares of 186 joint-stock companies, 86 federal state unitary enterprises, the participation of the Russian Federation in 13 limited liability companies, more than one thousand objects of other property of the state treasury," the order published on Cabinet website
    In fact, the more sanctions are imposed, the more they intensify trade with the Motherland .. And we all hope that the West will go crazy?
