UK lifts effective sanctions against Russia

The war of sanctions, if not yet over, is already beginning to approach its logical and physical end. We must pay tribute - the Europeans for quite a long time and stubbornly held out in harming themselves, rejoicing in the hope that they influence Russia. In August, Great Britain, the best friend of Ukraine, could not stand it. London significantly weakened the most important sanctions against the Russian Federation, which had the highest hopes for effectiveness.

To begin with, the UK government has eased the sanctions in the aviation field. Now it is allowed to provide insurance and reinsurance services for aircraft, aircraft, components for them to those counterparties that are connected with the Russian Federation. A few days ago it was forbidden. This was stated by the UK Department for International Trade.

Under the condition of lifting restrictions, these actions are allowed under the general license for the insurer in the event that "the regime of other sanctions is not violated." The last reservation was made to save face and not to show that the decision was forced, more necessary for London than for Russia.

The decision concerns a wide range of aviation nomenclature: aircraft, spare parts, aircraft turbine engines, components.

As a single precedent, this step to ease the sanctions regime was very revealing. However, as it turned out, he is not the only one and not the last to confirm the trend. For example, the Financial Times has learned that Britain will also delay a ban on oil insurance from Russia. Although it is this measure that is considered the most effective in Europe, it should hit Moscow.

It was previously stated that the ban on insurance of ships with Russian oil would come into force in the UK at the same time as similar laws in the EU, but London at the last moment decided to change its position and postponed the implementation indefinitely “due to the crisis.”

It is noteworthy that in the case of the oil and aviation industry, the UK only followed the EU, which did almost the same back in late July 2022. Thus, the European continent left in place secondary and minor sanctions, which are “terrifying” only in number. The truly effective restrictions that hinder the export of Russian raw materials and international air traffic have been removed, and by the West itself.

    The decision concerns a wide range of aviation nomenclature: aircraft, spare parts, aircraft turbine engines, components.

    The British keep their nose to the wind and realized that if they continue to supply spare parts for their aircraft, then in Russia the moment of launching Russian aircraft into operation will be postponed. The fact that Russia will produce aircraft for itself is not so bad. It will be worse for the West if Russia starts exporting civil aircraft, which will be cheaper than Western ones because of the cheapness of energy resources in Russia. Perhaps this is the main reason for the lifting of sanctions.

      The British are cunning and insidious, and "indulgence" is only a benefit for themselves and nothing for the Russian Federation. Therefore, this is a blow to our aviation industry and a few profits for their aviation industry and nothing more. The same for the insurance of oil carriers, to temporarily cover the shortage of oil before reaching other suppliers. The article is clearly over-optimistic and does not correspond to reality.

    Well, since "the European continent has left in force secondary and insignificant sanctions that inspire" horror "except perhaps in numbers," then now Medvedev and K will stop "hating and hating" them, and will open their arms again, send children abroad and instead of their own aircraft will begin buy Western?

    Les multi-milliardaires qui règnent économiquement, et donc politiquement et médiatiquement sur l'otaneuro zone sont frappés à la caisse en boomerang de leurs caprices sanctions contre la Russie. Soucieuse de prospérité dans ses propriétés préférées du nord de l'Europe, d'abord le Royaume-Uni, puis en Allemagne, Autriche, Pays-Bas, Luxembourg, Pays Scandinaves..., la jet set va y faire annuler les sanctions contre la Russie. Mais elle va exiger que ses propriétés latines, dont la France, et slaves continuent à les appliquer mordicus, afin qu'elles restent affaiblies par des contre-sanctions russes. Les cadors de la jet set ont très majoritairement des aïeux originaires de l'Europe du nord, et considèrent les Latins et Slaves comme un lignage inférieur
