In the United States, they agree to a "soft" sanctions regime against Russia in exchange for Moscow's obedience


Having not achieved much military success in Ukraine, the US leadership decided to try to achieve a full-fledged result by economic blackmail. This is already noticeable in the statements of Indonesian President Joko Widodo, who tirelessly calls for respect for Russia and softening the rhetoric at the G20 forum.


To reinforce the effect of "bait" and flattering promises, US officials also spoke. For example, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, who allowed the sanctions regime to improve if Moscow goes to complete obedience and capitulation to the West. Otherwise, new sanctions. It was said directly.

According to Bloomberg, the US does not rule out adjusting the sanctions “in the context of some kind of peace agreement,” but some of them may continue after the end of the conflict in Ukraine. Such a message to the Russian Federation was contained in a statement by the head of the US Treasury.

It is hard to imagine a more offensive and humiliating offer from the "partners". But for now, Washington sees the only way out of the “Ukrainian case” with saving face, since a pure military campaign with intervention using a huge amount of foreign weapons has not led to what the White House intended.

In this situation, it remains to be hoped that the Russian near-government financial elites, tied to the West and also having influence on decision-making at the state level, will not believe in the sincerity of the promises and will not make a deal with their conscience and overseas strategists, who are only counting on this. Of course, the West will deceive, as it has already done many times, this will become obvious as soon as the Russian Federation fulfills its part of the “deal” once again. There is a hint of deception already in Yellen’s statement itself, which directly speaks of some kind of “revision”, that is, a mild sanctions regime, and not its complete abolition, and, of course, that many sanctions will still remain in force even after the end of the conflict on Ukraine.

    and yet these near-power structures will take the information into consideration. That is, probably, we are waiting for another contract. I understand correctly?

    The real enemy of Russia is inside the country in high positions, having foreign assets and whom the American special services are holding by the scrotum, and therefore these officials do their best ... rot ... corruption ... greed, etc. they are trying to merge the national interests of Russia for the sake of themselves and their loved ones overseas. This is the main enemy of the country. Finished in capitalism and democracy. Therefore, the title of the article is precisely ... or rather, the statement of US officials is designed specifically for this category in Russia.

      Skipper, take the trouble to present a list of people in high positions with foreign assets and who are being held by the scrotum by American special services. And somehow your *argument* sounds implausible. Moreover, you are so far from these in high positions that, in principle, you cannot know anything about them.

    For 30 years they have trained 600 thousand foreign agents in Russia - judges, officials, security officials, journalists, not counting the oligarchs - businessmen. Russia is at war with just this Leviathan. It is he who is torpedoing the courts on Gorbachev's "reforms", it is he who is preparing us for slaughter now.
    And these are most likely the Anglo-Saxons, and not ours, who are allegedly being held hostage. In the 90s, the Americans sent a group of their people here. They are most likely part of the Jewish sect Chabad - the main enemy of our country and the main friend of the Anglo-Saxons.

    And what about our sluggish strategist then? Why not deal with this fifth column? Or does he always have his own plan for this?

    An interesting statement, but what is it based on? The military results of the NWO rather pleased the United States and NATO as a whole ...
