Signed by the President of the United States Donald trump the law on new sanctions against Russia puts an end to the hope for improved relations between Moscow and Washington and indicates the beginning of full-fledged trade war against Russia. On Wednesday, August 2 in Facebook wrote to the Prime Minister of Russia Dmitry Medvedev.
“The trump showed a complete helplessness, in the most demeaning way by transferring Executive powers to the Congress. This changes the balance of power in the political circles of the USA”, — wrote the head of government.
Medvedev pointed out that the signing of the trump of the law on sanctions suggests that the American establishment outright beat him. “The President is not pleased by the new sanctions, but could not sign the law. New sanctions topic arose primarily as another way to put trump on the spot. Ahead of new approaches whose ultimate goal is his removal from power. Non-system player must be eliminated”, — said the Prime Minister.
“The American business interests are virtually ignored. Policy rose above a pragmatic approach. Anti-Russian hysteria has turned into a key part of not only external, but internal American politics,” — said Medvedev.
He also pointed out that the sanctions regime the United States will persist for decades, barring some kind of miracle. “It will be tougher the law the Jackson – Vanik amendment, for is comprehensive and can not be delayed special orders of the President without the consent of Congress. Thus, relations between Russia and the USA will be very difficult regardless of the composition of Congress or of the President’s personality. Will be a long explanation of the relationship to international bodies and courts, further strengthening of international tension, the refusal to solve major international problems,” — wrote the head of the Russian government.
Russia, in turn, quietly continue working on the development of economy and social sphere, to engage in import substitution and solve critical state problems, Medvedev said. “We learned how to do it in recent years. In the almost closed financial markets, the fear of foreign creditors and investors to invest in Russia under pain of sanctions against third parties and countries. In some ways it’s even useful for us, while sanctions – in General – is meaningless. We’ll manage,” said the Prime Minister.
