russian bear usa sanctions

Gli Stati Uniti d’America hanno deciso effettuare sanzioni contro la Federazione Russa e contro i suoi cittadini per dissuadere le autorità Russe dal proteggere le popolazioni di lingua Russa che hanno deciso con referendum democratico di non essere più parte di uno stato ukraino dove vengono violati i più elementari diritti civili e dove chi non è di etnia ukraina viene ammazzato e torturato brutalmente.

Gli Usa fanno pressioni enormi sulle loro colonie dell’alleanza Nato per spingerle ad effettuare sanzioni ancora più pesanti contro la Russia, e già l’Europa invece di sanzionare il governo golpista Ukraino lo supporta non solo militarmente ma addirittura economicamente acelerando il processo di integrazione Europea, che sappiamo sarà disastroso per l’Ukraina in quanto porterà all’esodo di massa di tecnici e forza lavoro Ukraina verso l’Europa, svuotando di fatto l’Ukraina.

Lo stato italiano si oppone all’incrudimento delle sanzioni, ma non per uno spirito elevato di moralità e per supportare i diritti civili, ma solo per puro interesse economico, in quanto buona parte dell’export made in italy, finisce in Russia, perchè colorifici, mobilifici, maglieria, profumeria, scarpe, macchinari… vendono decine di miliardi di euri in Russia. Milioni di turisti dalla Russia spendono nello stato italiano. E poi che dire del gas e dei contratti che l’Eni ha? Che fine faranno tutte le mazzette che Renzi, Berlusconi e la Lega Nord hanno preso fino ad oggi con il gas Russo e con i gasdotti costruiti con il denaro pubblico?

E poi che dire di Unicredit che sta facendo affari d’oro a reciclare denaro e a fottere la popolazione Russa, dopo aver fottuto i risparmiatori italiani?

Dove venderanno la pasta Balilla e pomodori Ciro se le sanzioni aumentano?

Ecco che cosa preme a Renzi, al Pd e alla banda italiana. Tutto fuorchè la questione morale.

Eppure, pur per ragioni immorali, lo stato italiano con l’opposizione alle sanzioni contro la Russia, sta aiutando milioni di uomini e donne che subiscono un genocidio a Lugansk, Donetsk. Senza volerlo fanno una buona azione.

Un pò di numeri? Lo sapete quanti soldati mandati da Kiev sono caduti durante il genocidio delle popolazioni civili a Lugansk e Donetsk? Circa 30! Sappiamo invece che le vittime civili sono di poco inferiori al migliaio e tutti di lingua Russa. Questo è un genocidio!

A Donetsk e Lugansk sta avvenendo un genocidio e l’Europa ha una grande responsabilità. Le sanzioni andrebbero fatte contro gli Usa, contro la Germania, contro Kiev, solo così si ferma il massacro.

Vi lasciamo ad alcuni articoli di recente pubblicazione sul Financial Times.

Italy leads calls to slow sanctions against Russia

Petro Poroshenko, the new Ukrainian president, says the ceasefire is under intense strain

Italy will lead countries seeking to curb US and German attempts to broaden the scope of western sanctions against Russia at an EU summit on Friday.

Washington is pressing the EU to threaten Moscow with sanctions against entire sectors of the Russian economy, including energy, finance and defence. Dan Fried, the US envoy for sanctions, visited Brussels on Wednesday to signal that the US was ready to proceed with these “level three” measures but would seek to do so in lockstep with the EU, diplomats said.

“The US message was: we do not expect level three sanctions on Friday but expect to go quickly, at short notice, if necessary. We want you to send that signal,” said an EU ambassador, adding that there was now growing consensus that Europe’s sanctions could have to stretch beyond restrictions on individuals.

Germany, the most significant driver of EU policy, has in recent days hardened its position to favour issuing a threat of wider sanctions against Moscow, frustrated by the continued violence in Ukraine and the flow of troops and heavy weapons from Russia, despite conciliatory gestures from the Kremlin.

“Progress has not been as clear as I would wish, considering the truce has been in place for almost seven days . . . We will have to talk about how we need to go further with sanctions or to what extent there is progress in the next few hours,” Angela Merkel, German chancellor, said at a meeting in Belgium before the summit.

Petro Poroshenko, the new president of Ukraine, on Thursday expressed his fears that the ceasefire was under intense strain. “In less than a week of ceasefire, 18 Ukrainian soldiers have been killed; 27 injured,” he said. He also called upon Moscow to back his peace plan with action rather than words. “Strengthen control over your border. Stop the inflow of heavy military equipment. Stop the inflow of your mercenaries and, finally, pull back your army.”

Meanwhile, the leadership of the breakaway People’s Republics of Donetsk and Lugansk declared that they had united to form a new confederation called “New Russia.”

Oleg Tsaryov, chair of the newly formed confederation’s parliament, told the Financial Times on Thursday: “We want Ukraine’s army to leave”.

He also said consultations may take place on Friday with Kiev’s representatives to prolong the ceasefire which is due to end at 10am on Friday.

Pro-Moscow separatists in eastern Ukraine have escalated the political turmoil that threatens to tear the country apart. Germany’s stance on sanctions would put it at the head of a group of nations now seeking tougher action on Friday in Brussels: Britain, Sweden, Denmark, Poland, Romania and the Baltic states. France, the Netherlands and Ireland would also be seen as likely to follow Germany’s lead, diplomats said.

Italy is leading a robust challenge to sanctions and is seeking to avoid setting a trigger for punitive measures. However, draft conclusions for Friday, seen by the FT, revealed some threat to Russia, warning that Moscow would face “targeted measures” if events in eastern Ukraine “so require”.

Rome is arguing that the EU’s diplomatic focus should be on helping Mr Poroshenko secure a peace deal and supporting Kiev’s gas price negotiations with Gazprom. Italy also argues it would be unwise to present Moscow with a “trigger point” for sanctions as that would raise the political temperature just as Kiev is due to sign a contentious trade deal with the EU on Friday.

Federica Mogherini, Italy’s foreign minister, has been the most vocal proponent of not rushing into sanctions on Russia but she has support from Austria, Spain, Cyprus, Greece, Slovakia, Hungary and Bulgaria. “Italy’s opposition [to sanctions] is getting stronger and more self-assured,” said one diplomat.

In general, EU nations are worried about the consequences of an economic showdown with Russia, which supplies 30 per cent of Europe’s gas. The EU’s trade ties to Russia are almost a dozen times the size of the US’s. But Italy’s critics say that the government is particularly sensitive to the effect of sanctions on companies such as Eni in the energy sector and UniCredit in finance.

Leading US business groups are also expressing their opposition to sanctions on Russia by taking out advertisements in national newspapers.

Ukraine on Friday will be joined by Georgia and Moldova in signing trade deals with the EU. The two former Soviet states will also sign association agreements with the bloc – which Kiev signed in March.

The refusal last November of Ukraine’s then president Viktor Yanukovich, to sign the agreements with the EU was a major factor in triggering the protests that led to his downfall and the current crisis

  1. Nel mentre qualcosa lo abbiamo già portato a casa: revisione a tutto campo dei contratti “take or pay” sul gas russo. Bisognerebbe vedere in cambio di cosa….
