The war in Ukraine will stop in two months: Russia has been told how the West can curb Putin

The war in Ukraine will stop in two months: Russia has been told how the West can curb Putin

Due to the indifferent attitude of the West to the situation in Ukraine, there is a hope that Russian aggression will be suppressed in a couple of months.

Such a view was voiced by Russian philosopher Igor Chubais of Radio Liberty.

"Europe does not throw Ukraine, these issues are discussed at all international meetings, the European Union retains its sanctions, it did not cancel and did not give up sanctions, and the UN resolution on the Crimea also sounded very convincing." Actually, no one agreed to change the status of the Crimea. - this is the outcome of the year. If to formulate it briefly, this is the position of the West, "says Chubais.

He also mentions the US decision to supply lethal weapons to Ukraine. According to the philosopher, this step proved that there are levers of influence on Russia in the West. At the same time Chubais points out the need for an active fight against corruption in Ukraine.

"I think that if the West continues to defend its line, and in the West in this respect huge untapped resources, then the war in Ukraine will stop in two months." The West can increase pressure. "Russia is almost at the brink of its economic potential, as it is not already there to keep our education, our health and that is still very important in the long run - in order for the process to take place, and it is quite possible next year to start moving in the right direction, Ukraine needs to make compelling steps in the fight against corruption"- said Chubais.

In 2018, Washington will increase pressure on Moscow through a series of extended sanctions - Stratfor

In 2018, Washington will increase pressure on Moscow through a series of extended sanctions - Stratfor



In 2018, Washington will increase its pressure on Moscow through a series of extended sanctions aimed at Russia's financial stability, its oligarchs, reputation and defense industry.

This is stated in the material on the site of the analytical company Stratfor, reports Tsensor. NET with reference to Gordon.

It is noted that there are no signs of tension reduction between the US and Russia.

In February, the US Treasury Department will provide details on the possible extension of sanctions, but it is already known that new restrictive measures will target Russian sovereign debt and oligarchs, analysts at Stratfor say. This is due to an investigation into Russia's interference with the US presidential election, according to the materials.

Stratfor predicts that in 2018, the United States is likely to impose sanctions against Russian defense companies that provide technology or development that violates the 1987 Interim Nuclear Weapons Treaty.

"The US Department of Commerce is preparing a list of companies that are believed to be involved in developing weapons that violate the treaty," according to the material.

Stratfor emphasizes that for the US and Russia 2018 will be another "troublesome year".

"While Washington is planning what instruments can be used against Moscow, Russia is preparing for even tighter relations, isolating its economy and creating bridges from the Asia-Pacific region and the Middle East," analysts of the company write.

Recall that as of February 1, 2018, the US Department of the Treasury, with the support of intelligence, is preparing a report on "individual sanctions" against Russian oligarchs and officials - "financial services" of the Russian authorities. A group of international experts has formulated the criteria for selecting "faces" of the forthcoming "Kremlin Report", which, according to law No. 3364 "On Resistance to American Americans with Sanctions" (CAATSA), may await the freezing of financial assets and a ban on entry into the United States. Article 241 of this law states that the report should consider the connections of these persons with Vladimir Putin, establish their involvement in corruption, estimate the size of their wealth and source of income.

One of the signs of "proximity to the regime," experts note, is the involvement (open or hidden) of "aggressive (and illegal) acts of the Putin regime." These include Russia's intervention in the 2016 US presidential election; "Military aggression" against Georgia and Ukraine, including the annexation of Crimea; bombing civilians in Chechnya and Syria; the murder of Yuriy Shchekochikhin, Anna Politkovskaya, Alexander Litvinenko, Sergei Magnitsky, Boris Nemtsov and other opposition politicians, public activists, journalists, and lawyers.

As previously reported, on August 2, US President Donald Trump signed a law on new sanctions against Russia. On July 25, the House of Representatives of the United States of America voted for a bill that provides for additional sanctions against Russia, Iran and the DPRK. The Senate followed the House of Representatives approved this law. US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said that the almost unanimous vote on the draft new sanctions in Congress suggests "the desire of Americans to see that Russia is taking steps to improve relations with the United States." He also expressed the hope that cooperation with Russia on key global issues will continue, and sanctions imposed against the country will no longer be needed.

In particular, the law requires the United States financial intelligence to provide within 180 days information about the assets contained in the West, Russian politicians and businessmen close to the Kremlin.

The document also reduces the maximum term of lending to Russian banks subject to sanctions, up to 14 days, and for oil and gas sector companies - up to 30 days. The US president can impose sanctions on individuals who intend to invest more than $ 5 million per year or $ 1 million in construction of Russian export pipelines once. The law obliges the US president to agree in advance with the Congress any mitigation or abolition of sanctions. The head of the White House will not be able to remove the restrictive measures by a personal decree, as it was before.

According to a new document, the US President's ability to lift sanctions is limited, and previous restrictions are fixed at the law.

Putin extended the restrictions for six months during transit through the Russian Federation from Ukraine to Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan



]The President of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin, made changes to the decree of the head of state of January 1, 2016 "On Measures to Ensure Economic Security and National Interests of the Russian Federation in the course of international transit transportation of goods from the territory of Ukraine to the territory of the Republic of Kazakhstan or the Kyrgyz Republic through the territory of the Russian Federation."

"To add to the Decree of the President of the Russian Federation dated January 1, 2016, No. 1" On Measures to Ensure Economic Security and National Interests of the Russian Federation in the course of international transit transportation of goods from the territory of Ukraine to the territory of the Republic of Kazakhstan or the Kyrgyz Republic through the territory of the Russian Federation "(Meeting Amendments to the Law of the Russian Federation, 2016, No. 1, Article 215, No. 27, item 4466), replacing in paragraph 4 the words "until December 31, 2017" with the words "until June 30, 2018", - stated in the document placed on of touch on social portal for legal information, reports Tsenzor.NET referring to and nterfaks-Ukraine.

This decree came into force on December 30, 2017.

The Presidential Decree of January 1, 2016 stipulated that international transit car and rail transportation of goods from the territory of Ukraine to the territory of Kazakhstan through Russian territory shall be carried out only from the territory of Belarus "subject to the use of vehicles (compartments) of vehicles and railway rolling stock, premises, capacities and other places where goods are or may be located, means of identification (seals) which, in particular, operate on the basis of the technology of the global navigation satellite system the theme "GLONASS", as well as in the presence of drivers of vehicles, carriers, account coupons. "

In early July 2016, V. Putin amended the Decree No. 1 dated January 1, 2016 "On Measures to Guarantee Economic Security and National Interests of the Russian Federation in the Implementation of International Transit Transport of Goods from the Territory of Ukraine to the Republic of Kazakhstan within the Territory of the Russian Federation". According to the changes, the rules of import of goods from the territory of Ukraine through Russia apply not only to Kazakhstan but also to Kyrgyzstan.

Ukraine, in mid-September 2016, sent a request for consultations with Russia to the WTO on restrictions on the transit of Ukrainian goods through the territory of the Russian Federation, but consultations that took place in November did not lead to consensus.

Submitting a request for consultation is the first stage of filing a lawsuit, the failure of consultations within 60 days gives the opportunity to initiate the creation of a panel of arbitrators, which Ukraine used in mid-February 2017, but the RF then blocked the convening of the panel. In the case of a repeated application, the decision to convene a group of experts is taken automatically.

In its complaint to the WTO, Ukraine estimated exports of Ukrainian goods to the markets of Central, Central Asia and the Caucasus in the first half of 2016, due to such actions of the Russian Federation at 35.1%, in particular to Kazakhstan - by 45.5%.

Putin's propaganda "victory" in Syria has turned into a shameful farce, - Turchinov

Ukrainians are urged not to go to Russia: the Foreign Ministry spoke about the provocations that the FSB is preparing

It is becoming more and more dangerous for Ukrainians to go to Russia, as there are more cases of their detention
This is reported by the press center of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine in its Twitter account.

The department reminded the SBU of the fact that Russian special services committed another anti-Ukrainian provocation, illegally detaining a citizen of Ukraine, a participant in the anti-terrorist operation Oleg Nehoda, who traveled to his relatives in Moscow.

This means that the Russian FSB hunts Ukrainians on Russian territory and trips to the aggressor country are extremely dangerous.

"The trip of Ukrainians to Russia is often a one way ticket, it is confirmed and documented, is it worth risking their own freedom and causing torture to their relatives?", The MFA stressed.



-On January 2, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine appealed to Russia to confirm the fact and clarify the circumstances of the detention of a participant of the ATO Oleg Nehoda in Moscow. In late 2017 he left for Saratov to his sister. The media reported that Negot was allegedly detained in Moscow on December 24-25.

-Valerii Lutkovska, Parliamenter for Human Rights Commissioner, said that cases of unjust lawsuits against Ukrainian citizens who work there and were about to go back or terminate the contract became more frequent in Russia.
