The West intends to strike at important for Russia as for any other state, sector
The US and the EU in the next few days will consider the practical question of introduction of sanctions against Russia.
We will talk about the economy of the aggressor. A new “portion” of the limitations associated with the consequences of Russian actions in the Kerch Strait on the Ukrainian military.
About this in Facebook wrote Eugene Platon:
“The tightening of anti-Russian sanctions in the coming months, warned the international rating Agency Moody’s. As the Financial Times reports from diplomatic sources, the new sanctions against Russia for aggression in the sea of Azov, where Russian border guards fired on and arrested the ships of the Navy of Ukraine and detained 24 sailors, will be discussed at the meeting of foreign Ministers of the EU next Monday, February 18”.
So the author States:
“New sanctions have been agreed upon by Brussels and Washington and will be introduced simultaneously, States and the European Union. They will be aimed at individuals responsible for the incident in the Kerch Strait, and also on a number of Russian companies, and will come into force before the end of March. In addition to the sanctions for refusal to release Ukrainian sailors, which has repeatedly demanded the US and the EU, will add significantly more sensitive sanctions against state debt and state-owned banks, who are currently preparing the Congress of the United States.”
It is known that we are talking about the law of S. 3336, which received the support of both parties and combined seven sanctions proposals in the Congress last year:
“Document number S. 3336, entitled “Law on the strengthening of NATO, the fight against international cybercrime, and the introduction of additional sanctions against the Russian Federation”, has the short version names: “the Law on the protection of America’s security from the aggression of the Kremlin.”
In addition to the new sanctions against Russian officials and oligarchs, the law requires that seven state-owned banks: Sberbank, VTB, Gazprombank, VNESHECONOMBANK, Bank of Moscow, Rosselkhozbank, Promsvyazbank has been disconnected from the possibility to conduct settlements in dollars, and foreign investors are allowed to buy new government bonds of the Russian Federation”.
The tightening of anti-Russian sanctions in the coming months, warned the international rating Agency Moody’s.
So says Moody’s: “sanctions against Russian government debt can then be extended to the secondary market – in other words, foreign investors are forbidden not only to buy new government bonds of the Russian Federation, but also, in principle, have bonds of the Russian government. The same measures can be applied to bonds issued by Russian state banks,” warns Moody’s.
The author concluded “sad” statistics for Russia:
“Meanwhile, according to the CBR, net capital outflow in January 2019 were $10.4 billion versus $7.1 billion a year earlier and increased by almost 1.5 times.”
“We need to make sure that the non-observance by Russia of international law and a violation of the rules-based order, which for decades was the basis for peace and security for all NATO allies, will have a price and consequences,” – said Stoltenberg.
