A condition that the US and Russia can agree on in Ukraine is named

on Sun Jan 21, 2018 11:30 am
A condition that the US and Russia can agree on in Ukraine is named

Western countries are ready to enter into an agreement with Russia on sanctions and conflict in the Donbass, if Russia develops flexible behavior in foreign policy and holds back the degree of aggression.

This was stated in an interview with "Apostrophe" by Russian political scientist and publicist Andriy Piontkovsky.

According to him, the United States had previously not been opposed to the fact that Russian oligarchs invested in the American economy, but everything changed after information on Russia's interference in the election.

"If the foreign policy of Russia changes, then the Americans will be ready to agree. Why? Because the process of confiscation is long and timid, and Americans will be ready to respond to the flexible behavior of Moscow, but as far as I judge insider information from Moscow, under Putin's living politics, to change Foreign policy will be very difficult, and if the Russian top will change the brand - instead of Putin there will be some Pupkin - then I think they can quickly agree with the Americans, "Piontkovsky said.

In Russia they were told about the real attitude of Putin's environment to his war in Ukraine

In Russia they were told about the real attitude of Putin's environment to his war in Ukraine

Approaching President Vladimir Putin wants Russia to withdraw from the conflict in the Donbas.

This was stated in an interview with "Apostrophe" by Russian political scientist and publicist Andriy Piontkovsky.

"Ask tomorrow the same Putin, he will say that they will gladly leave the Donbass, if at least somehow recognize the annexation of the Crimea, while the Western powers will never legally recognize it. Such an agreement can not be ruled out - the exit from the Donbass and the suspended state with the Crimea. After all, all the basic sanctions imposed on the Donbas, and just Crimean ones - they are generally ridiculous, as if [Sergei] Aksonov and some other crooks are not allowed to travel across Europe", - says Piontkovsky.

At the same time, the expert virtually eliminates the radicalization of Russia's position on this issue.

"I will tell you that more radical people are screaming on television shows, and real people who control Russia, who are millionaires and billionaires, understand that Putin has burst and they want to somehow jump", - summed up a political scientist.

Trump may not go to Davos because of the suspension of the government: he had plans to meet Poroshenko at the forum

Trump may not go to Davos because of the suspension of the government: he had plans to meet Poroshenko at the forum

The trip by US President Donald Trump to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, is currently in question because the Senate was not able to approve the draft government budget.

This was reported by Reuters.

Head of the White House Budget Office, Mick Malveyney, said Trump suspended the work of the US government to cancel his visit to his private residence in Mar-a-Lago, Florida, where he was going to spend the weekend.

The World Economic Forum in Davos should begin on January 23. It was expected that Donald Trump would become the main guest of this event.

We would like to emphasize that the Ukrainian president, Petro Poroshenko, will also be present at the event . There he has planned about 20 meetings, in particular, with Donald Trump.

For the first time, President Poroshenko met with Donald Trump in June last year: then Poroshenko visited Washington.

This happened again in September 2017: then during the visit of Poroshenko to the UN General Assembly in New York, the United States supported the idea of ​​introducing peacekeepers to the Donbas.

On January 19, representatives of the Democratic Party blocked the draft government budget because they could not find a compromise with the Republicans on a law that protects the deportation of migrants, after which January 20 US federal agencies suspended work due to lack of funding.

By the time the government is suspended, "uncritical" services stop work, and hundreds of thousands of workers go on unpaid leave.

This does not only apply to critical services such as the Ministry of Emergencies, and those that directly provide security for the state, namely the army. Some federal institutions may continue to work for a while, a prison officer, a Meteorological Service or an air traffic control service.

However, due to the fact that budget expenditures are set by the decision of the Congress, it is possible to stop financing and work of any state organization.

In Russia, create a bank to finance the defense industry bypassing sanctions

In Russia, create a bank to finance the defense industry bypassing sanctions



The central bank of Russia announced the creation of a "special purpose bank for servicing military-industrial enterprises", which will be used to finance Russia's "defense" bypassing sanctions.

As informs Tsensor.NET, this is written by Financial Times.

According to the newspaper, the "special purpose" bank will become Promsvyazbank - the ninth largest bank of the Russian Federation.

At the end of last year, the Central Bank of Russia introduced a temporary administration in Promsvyazbank. According to preliminary estimates, a "salvation" of the bank will require up to 200 billion rubles (about $ 3.5 billion) of recapitalization.

According to Alexander Danilov, an analyst at Fitch Ratings, Promsvyazbank will lend to the defense sector instead of Sberbank and VTB.

"They do not want them to be sanctioned. That's obvious," said the analyst.

The publication points to the fact that the Kremlin is really discussing the issue of evasion from new sanctions in the United States, in particular through the creation of a new bank.

Russian "Sberbank" and "VTB" are subject to restrictions on the attraction of capital in the West, but, unlike most of the defense sector of the Russian Federation, do not fall into the black list.

According to the expert, "Promsvyazbank" will face the same restrictions as "Russia" and "SMP", which belong to friends of the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin. They can not use Visa and MasterCard and carry out transactions in foreign currency.

"We all know about the contacts behind the secret services, and this suggests that there is a potential and he is very rich. It's just that we have to bring the entire complex of bilateral relations with the peak, in which he entered and still does not work out," Peskov said.

He also suggested that the relations between the leaders of the Russian Federation and the United States could be even better, if not for the domestic political situation in the United States. "Obviously, the internal situation in the US is unfavorable to our country," - added Peskov.

He specified that Putin's contacts with Trump could take place in the second half of 2018.

Read on "Tsensor.NET": "In case of unconditional return of Russia to the PACE, Moscow's policy will not change, but the Council of Europe will become different", - Kulleb

This is not an immediate prospect, it's the second half of next year," Peskov said.
