Russia Overtly Threatens US Over Latest Round of Sanctions


Anonymous expert compilation, analysis, and reporting.

It is interesting to see Yevengy Prigozhin added to the list. I thought he was on the list previously. You remember him. Putin’s chef, finances the Russian troll farm in St. Petersburg, and owns Wagner PMC.

Chinese “outrage”  over the sanctions falls into the “crocodile tears” category – Chinese industry now has an excuse to reverse engineer every spare part they might still be buying in Russia, and screw the Russians for IP rights. China’s actual volume of equipment purchases in Russia has declined dramatically in recent years, the only significant recent procurements being several S-400 batteries and a small number of Su-35S fighters.

Russian frothing at the mouth is more easily explained, as global application of these sanctions will make exported Russian weapons toxic in the wider market – only pariah nations already under US sanctions will be able to buy Russian. What we will see is the Ukrainians and Chinese taking over a large fraction of the global market where users of Russian equipment will abandon procurements of Russian made spares, maintenance, munitions etc. to avoid exposure to sanctions. China’s defense industry wins twice out of these sanctions – at Russia’s expense.

A very smart play by the US. A really dumb play by the Russians to maneuver themselves into these sanctions.
