"The Russian power could and wait". Why Moscow hurried with trade sanctions against Kiev?


The Cabinet of Ministers of the Russian Federation expanded the inventory, forbidden to import from Ukraine. It is rather wide: from household objects and clothes to oil and oil products Dmitry Medvedev. Photo: Dmitry the Government of the Russian Federation expanded with Astakhov/TASS the list of goods which are forbidden to be imported from Ukraine. Among them there are bras, dresses, tights, sweaters, footwear and also the enameled ware, ropes, pipes, cardboard, packages and bags. The head of the government Dmitry Medvedev declared new restrictions for trade with Ukraine. Introduction of the actual ban on export to this country of the Russian oil and oil products and also coal will become one of the main measures — since their June 1 it will be possible to take out only on separate permissions. Why restrictions are decided to be introduced right now? New sanctions are imposed by Russia three days before elections in Ukraine. As the prime minister Dmitry Medvedev said, it is the answer to trade sanctions which Kiev imposed on April 10. But, probably, if desired with the answer it would be possible and to wait until the end of vote. What did not begin to be waited looks as a signal to one of candidates: Moscow does not promise Vladimir Zelensky any mitigation. The situation is commented by the political scientist, the director of Institute of global strategy Vadim Karasyov. Vadim Karasyov is the Ukrainian political scientist, the director of Institute of global strategy "Russia will demand not some partial concessions from Zelensky, and concessions largely.

Russia will try to influence parliamentary elections before parliamentary elections, for example, Medvedchuk and Boyko brought from Moscow not only reduction of price of gas, not only prisoners of war and seamen, hostages, but also cancellation of this sort of the bans. The Russian power could and wait for the end of presidential elections and taking office of Zelensky, but, as you can see, they do not wait, and give any signals that Zelensky's victory almost means nothing. So, Russia will demand from Ukraine not some partial concessions, not search of compromises, and enough serious concessions, shifts". However, as political scientists note, situationally sanctions from Russia play into the hands of Poroshenko, strengthening his basic message about the Russian threat. Professor of MGIMO Valery Solovey skeptically estimates expediency of new sanctions, he pays attention to one more aspect. Valery Solovey professor of MGIMO, the doctor of historical sciences "From the point of view of the United States which conduct private consultations in Moscow now a problem of Ukraine is paramount for improvement of the Russian-American relations. They formulate the position approximately so: if Russia does any gestures of good will concerning the new Ukrainian power, then Americans perceive it extremely positively and are ready to the organization of a meeting of Putin and Trump this year. When I heard this American position yesterday, and today saw is announced
