    Pay the Russian Response to Sanctions: Pay the Price!

    Thursday, August 7, 2014
    You wanna be Uncle Sam’s bitch? Pay the price!
    Dear friends,

    I just took a short break from my life in “meatspace” to comment upon the great news of the day: Russia is introducing a full 12 months embargo on the import of beef, pork, fruits and vegetables, poultry, fish, cheese, milk and dairy products from the European Union, the United States, Australia, Canada and the Kingdom of Norway. Russia is also introducing an airspace ban against European and US airlines that fly over our airspace to Eastern Asia, namely, the Asia-Pacific Region and is considering changing the so-called Russian airspace entry and exit points for European scheduled and charter flights. Furthermore, Russia is ready to revise the rules of using the trans-Siberian routes, and will also discontinue talks with the US air authorities on the use of the trans-Siberian routes. Finally, starting this winter, we may revoke the additional rights issued by the Russian air authorities beyond the previous agreements. This is such an interesting and major development that it requires a much more subtle analysis than just the crude calculation of how much this might cost the EU or US. I will attempt no such calculation, but instead I would point out the following elements:

    First, this is a typically Russian response. There is a basic rule which every Russian kid learns in school, in street fights, in the military or elsewhere: never promise and never threaten – just act.
    Last, but most definitely not least, this trade-war, combined with the West’s hysterical russophobia, is doing for Putin a better PR campaign than anything the Kremlin could have dreamed of. All his PR people need to tell the Russian population is the truth: “we did everything right, we played it exactly by the book, we did everything we could to deescalate this crisis and all we asked for was to please not allow the genocide of our people in Novorussia – and what was the West’s response to that? An insane hate campaign, sanctions against us and unconditional support for thegenocidal Nazis in Kiev”. Furthermore, as somebody who carefully follows the Russian media, I can tell you that what is taking place today feels a lot like, paraphrasing Clausewitz, the “a continuation of WWII, but by other means”, in other words a struggle to the end between two regimes, two civilizations, which cannot coexist on the same planet and who are locked in struggle to death. In these circumstances, expect the Russian people to support Putin even more.

    Yes, that IS a typical Russian response and it is one that the US / UK / EU KNEW was coming. It will hurt Russia more than it hurts the West. Russia is not exactly an ag paradise. Other than wheat, rye, potatoes, and beets, what else grows in abundance in Russia? Not a lot.

    But this whole sanctions things is just so much BS. All Putin has to do is shut off the flow of Russian gas and oil to the EU UNTIL THE SANCTIONS AGAINST RUSSIA ARE LIFTED. He does that and those sanctions will disappear pronto. Russia does not have to sell its energy products to the EU. They pay well and it is convenient but it is not a “need” for Russia. There are PLENTY of paying customers in Asia who would be thrilled to get Russian oil and gas… and, unlike the West, Asians are creditors, not debtors.
