In Russia , a new species of the armed forces – Aerospace
This will enter the Air Force and aerospace defense and will appear very soon, it will include the Air Force and Army Aerospace Defense (ASD ). This was announced on Thursday 8th May 14, by a senior official of the Defense Ministry.
” The decision to form a new kind of Armed Forces adopted at the highest level, now is actively working to create a new structure by merging the Air Force and aerospace defense.”
A source in the ministry said that the nomination of the new Commander of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation is still under discussion .
” Issues relating to the division of the new structure of the armed forces to be discussed this month (May) at a meeting, which will discuss the further development of the Armed Forces.”
The structure of a new type of force
According to the interlocutor, it is assumed that the Air Force as part of a new kind of Russian Armed Forces will retain the current structure, as well as troops of ASD. “It is expected that the new commander will alternates troops between EKR, EIF, on missile defense and air defense. As childbirth will also feature altogether new anti-aircraft missiles, radar troops and so on,” – informed the source.
It is being stressed that the specific structure of the new species has not been determined in full and is under consideration, as to be expected, but there is very high probability that it will include artillery and rocket forces, including missile complexes- Iskander, which are able to more effectively engage the European missile defense elements, than are our assault and bombers. “
” The idea is fast becoming reality, all is being worked through and meticulously, all options calculated, even given the complexity of the whole research project.“
It is expected that the documented decision to create a new kind of Russian Armed Forces will be formed in 2015.
Intellectual, programmable detonators
Russia’s defense industry is developing new delayed-action detonators, which will allow for more effective strikes against ships.
Russia’s NIMI (Engineering Scientific Research Institute) is developing artillery shells with intellectual, programmable detonators which allow naval artillery to destroy enemy ships with one shot, – institute department head Valery Lebedev.
When the shell hits a ship, it first penetrates its hull and then detonates the shell following an optimal delay, delivering irreparable damage to the ship. The US Navy is also known to be developing a similar system within the framework of its MEMS microchip project.
“The international trend that we follow is the creation of intellectual detonators which allow for the explosion of the shell in optimal temporal and spatial coordinates.” – Lebedev
The new shells will vastly increase the effectiveness of gunning at naval, coastal and aerial targets by reducing the expenditure of shells needed to devastate targets.
In addition, the creation of low-sensitivity explosives and gunpowder, is another prospective direction for the institute. The explosives will greatly reduce the probability of unintentional detonation, during situations including fires at armories and combat zones.
Watchkeeper: Our next generation Unmanned Air System, Watchkeeper, has been cleared to begin military flight training with the Royal Artillery.
Up until now, the unarmed Watchkeeper, has been trialled by industry but approval has now been given for the Army’s own pilots to begin live flying from Boscombe Down in Wiltshire.
Porton Man is an animatronic mannequin designed to test protective suits and equipment for the UK Armed Forces.
The MOD has invested £1.1m in the new state-of-the-art robot, which is named after the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) based at Porton Down, Wiltshire.
Porton Man is able to walk, march, run, sit, kneel and can even lift its arms to sight a weapon like an infantry soldier.
More than 100 sensors all over the body record data during tests enabling scientists to carry out real-time analysis on equipment such as chemical and biological suits in a realistic but secure environment.
The MOD has decided to replace the GPS with new ‘quantum compass’
The MOD is investing millions of pounds in developing its own navigation system, ‘quantum compass’ .
Scientists from Porton Down and the National Physical Laboratory announced their readiness to proceed with the development of ‘quantum compass’ that would be able to locate on the basis of subatomic effects of the Earth’s magnetic field.
Quantum Compass does not need satellites and other additional equipment, it is sensitive to fluctuations in magnetic fields.
Technology that does not require satellites and radio, is of military interest worldwide because of the restrictions that space navigation systems do have.
The MOD has been considering the new technology in nuclear submarines, which must be moved with great speed and accuracy, without the need for communication with the outside world.
Without regular settings even the most sophisticated navigation systems may not be entirely accurate, hence the requirement to seek and develop alternative navigation systems.
Scientists believe that the technology in ‘quantum compass’ may have civilian applications, as GPS, and may eventually be available for use in smartphones. To develop a ‘quantum compass’ may take three to five years.
At the end of April, the head of the Kremlin administration Sergei Ivanov said that Russia also intends to increase international cooperation in the field of satellite navigation. Land measuring segment of GLONASS abroad in the future will include 50 stations in 36 countries. Now there are only two such stations – in Antarctica and Brazil.

According to statistics of the World Bank: China will overtake the U.S. economy in size this year. What do you think? (article)
Sanctions-Russia. According to Bloomberg, the fear response is above all felt by such companies as American Exxon Mobil, which has several major projects with Rosneft.
“Six U.S. and European officials on condition of anonymity said that they are exploring the potential risks for the economies of their countries and companies, if Putin take retaliatory measures,” – writes Bloomberg.
Possible economic problems do not stop the EU from discussing further sanctions against Russia. Nevertheless, Britain fears for the consequences of sanctions for financial services, France – for sale of military equipment, Italy – for sales of luxury goods , and Germany – for total trade with Russia.
As of March 1, Russia’s international reserves reached 493 billion dollars, but by May 1, decreased to 472 billion dollars of these funds accounted for most of the debt securities of foreign governments, especially the United States.
In addition to Russia , the list of the largest holders of U.S. Treasury bonds includes mainland China, which owns 1.27 trillion dollars, Japan with $ 1.2 trillion, Belgium, which owns 381.4 billion dollars, ‘the state in the Caribbean’ – they account for 312, $ 5 billion oil-producing countries with 247.4 billion dollars, Brazil with U.S. $ 245.3 billion, Taiwan holds bonds of $ 176.4 billion, the United Kingdom – to 176.4 billion dollars.
As of the end of March 2014 Russia is on the 13th place in the list of the largest creditors. Ireland is second with 113.3 billion dollars, but ahead of Singapore, which owns bonds of $ 91.3 billion.
Total in March, foreign investors reduced their investments in U.S. securities, including Treasury bills, at 126.1 billion U.S. Of this amount, U.S. $ 115.5 billion accounted for an outflow of private capital, and $ 10.6 billion – the means, belonging to foreign states and state organizations.
The head of the Defense Intelligence Agency ( DIA ) Michael Flynn and his deputy David Shedd leave office before the end of 2014. Reasons for the decision on the resignation were not disclosed, however, according to The Washington Post, the pressure exerted on Flynn was because of a disagreement. While the director of Intelligence and his deputy continue to work. Powers they lay away, most likely in early autumn. In a statement, the agency said that Flynn and Shedd helped change the style of the DIA, allowing the agency to respond quickly to critical situations without creating special units and shuffling personnel. It is not known who will succeed Michael Flynn, but The Washington Post said that it will be Lt. Gen. Mary Leger. If this happens, the Defense Intelligence Agency will be headed by a woman for the first time.
Siberian scientists say they have ‘proven the right to expand its Russian part of the Arctic continental shelf’.
Scientists at the Institute of Petroleum Geology and Geophysics (IPGG SB RAS) collected a ‘large evidence base’ to support Russian claims to the Arctic continental shelf.
This was stated on April 29 by Head of the Laboratory of Geodynamics and Paleomagnetism IPGG , Corresponding Member of Russian Academy of Sciences, Valery Vernikovsky. The first application of Russia to expand its hydrocarbon-rich Arctic shelf in the early 2000s was rejected by the UN due to poor knowledge of the matter. he argument is that part of the Arctic seabed is composed of continental blocks, which substantiates Russian claim to the underwater Lomonosov and Mendeleev ridges, voiced Valery Vernikovsky of IPGG. In 2012 rock samples were collected from the Mendeleev Ridge from a depth of more than two and a half thousand kilometers. Their age shocked many apparently, the rocks were approximately 460-470 million years younger than originally considered. Thus ‘cThe shelf is considered part of the ocean floor, which is adjacent to land and is in common with the geological structure. The To realize this right a country must apply to a special international body – the UN Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf. In the Arctic Ocean shelves occupy more than half of the territory. (Arctic Eye, preamble-link)
Two defense regiment have taken up on combat duty in the Moscow region
Two anti-aircraft missile defense regiment land forces have taken up on combat duty in the Moscow region from June 8, (office of the Western Military District WEST).
“This decision was made after the defense units Kantemirovsky Tank Taman Motorized Rifle Division and showed good results during tactical exercises with live firing at the Kapustin Yar in Astrakhan region” – said representatives WEST.
Defense regiment returned after reconstitution and Taman Kantemirovsky divisions, which from 2009 to 2013 were reorganized into brigades.
Division antiaircraft battalions of motorized infantry and tank regiments, as well as anti-aircraft missile regiments Kantemirovsky and Taman divisions WEST first participated in similar exercises. Armed with these units of air defense forces are SAMs and short-range melee “Thor”, “Wasp”, “Strela-10” portable air defense systems “Igla” anti-aircraft missile and gun complex “Tunguska”.
Taman Division and Kantemirovsky They were formed in 1940 and 1942, respectively, from 1946 participated in all the Victory Day parade on Red Square. In addition, their unit was introduced in the capital during the funeral of Stalin and Beria’s arrest after and during the events of August 1991 and October 1993.
СБ Р. Proton rocket. FSB discovered sabotage
An FSB investigation found that employees at Khrunichev Center committed acts of intentional harm, that caused the PROTON rocket to fall. The Ministry of Internal Affairs opened a criminal case on the basis of materials submitted by the FSB.
In April last year in the reservoir that feeds the engine air to the second stage were found several unused aluminum seals. If they were not seen in control, the engine would go out of service in flight. About 15 employees of the manufacturer were later interviewed and passed a polygraph test. FSB, “The information obtained will confirm intentional action and to identify the perpetrators,” -whose names are not disclosed here. In July last year the cause of the crash of the Proton satellite Glonass-M was due to an incorrectly set the angular velocity sensor. Installation of the sensor upside is extremely complex, but the particular employees at Khrunichev coped with this task, and regarding any version of an intentional nature to sabotage the action is bound with the employee’s partial sanity. This is also a criminal case.
It is said in certain parts of the world that Americans tire of the same names at the top of the political Olympus (a little like Hollywood movies, you could say and whether true is open to more scrutiny). However, Barbara Bush, the wife and mother of former U.S. presidents – recently responded to the question regarding the possibility of the participation of Jeb in the presidential race in 2016 . “America is a very great country, and if we can not find more than two or three families to participate in the fight for the top jobs, it’s stupid,” – she said.
The organizers of the current study asked of participants that they express agreement or disagreement with her words, and in the context of dynastic traditions and plans not only the Bush family, but the Clintons too. It also emerged that Hillary Clinton, who has fought for the presidency and can in two years stage a new attempt and in general she appears (at the moment) more popular than the former Florida Governor Jeb Bush. Reviews about her split in the ratio of 48% to 32% in favor of the affirmative. None of these politicians have yet firmly decided on plans for 2016. But Hillary Clinton is considered in the ruling Democratic Party as being the undisputed favorite at the qualifying stage of the race. At the Republican opposition side, there is no tacit leader as yet. (picture link)
‘In the media, there is information regarding deliveries to Germany of semiautomatic firearms of Ukrainian production.

Israel: It may seem strange that there are pilots suffering from fear of heights, but such complaints are regular and in the IDF there are experts dealing with this problem. Often there is a question of banning them from flying, but such a decision is taken very carefully – there is a danger of exacerbating an already depressed psychological state of the pilot, who can plunge into a kind of fear. However, tIn Israel, there is a company that organizes special courses for people with a fear of heights . The IDF use its services, as do IDF Air Force pilots. The course participants group discuss this problem with a psychologist, and then they make an extreme high altitude parachute jump. To quote Ziv Kochba, vice president, “People get rid of this fear when they step out of the plane. Uncertainty is no longer tormenting them, and they all talk about the incredible lightness, felt while deciding to jump. ” !
British troops will not intervene if Russia uses the armed forces on the territory of Ukraine, said a source in the UK Ministry of Defence . British Defense Secretary Philip Hammond made this statement yesterday during a meeting with senior military leadership of the country. The minister said that British troops would not intervene if Russia uses force.
Such a position actually means abandoning the UK from the conditions of the Budapest Memorandum , signed in 1994. The Memorandum on Security Assurances in Ukraine in connection with the accession of Kiev to the NPT nuclear weapons was signed on December 5th, 1994, between Ukraine , Russia , the U.S. and Britain.

Germans not pleased with photograph!
The photograph of former German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder and Russian President Vladimir Putin, hailing each other a hug, was made in St. Petersburg on April 28. The main purpose of the trip to Russia for Schroeder were talks relating to joint Russian-German gas pipeline Nord Stream. The investigation conducted by German journalists, found that after the talks, Vladimir Putin gave a reception at the Yusupov Palace.
After the appearance of the photo in the press with comments regarding the ‘scandalous and despicably dangerous embrace’ were several representatives of the Bundestag. Gerda Gazelfeld, one of the leaders of the parliamentary majority party, the Christian Social Union, who hailed it as ‘repulsive’.

Re; DPRK Missile System
The White House chief stressed that Pyongyang’s provocative behavior would lead to further isolation
SEOUL, April 25. U.S. President Barack Obama said that North Korea is a direct threat to the United States. “>White House chief stressed that Pyongyang’s provocative behavior would lead him to further isolation.
In turn Pak Kin Hyo stated that South Korea and the U.S. will do everything necessary to deter provocation by the DPRK . South Korea and the U.S. agreed to make compatible its missile defense system (NMD).
Addition – An odd use of language and rhetoric out of the DPRK !
First secretary of the WPK , chairman of the DPRK National Defense, First Supreme Commander of the Korean People’s Army Kim Jong Un respectfully directed artillery drills at the site of one of the artillery units 681 st Military Unit KPA .
Our dear Supreme Commander closely followed the strict teachings for units in readiness for battle.
Saying that today, when never far from confrontational struggle against ‘the U.S. imperialists’, we are faced with incomparably important issues, we continue to respect the Supreme Commander, and do today what can not wait until tomorrow, and then put forward a software problem arising in strengthening the capability of the People’s Army. !
The limits of one’s language? Language can be used to conjure thoughts based on propositions that are fabrications, subsequently these can be reinforced when taken up by target groups. It is a powerful tool for propaganda. Bind this with creative (Shakespearean) metaphors such as describing opponents as; ‘running dogs’ ‘filthy dog vomit’ ‘pandering to imperialist pimps’ etc. helps (arguably, depending upon the receivers) to stage in living dramas, the original message.
The DPRK recently referred to the South Korean leader, Ms. Park as being; “a vile and wicked sycophant and traitor, a dirty comfort woman for the US and a despicable prostitute selling off the nation”.
North Korean state media have carried personal attacks on South Korean leaders on many occasions during the past, but the rhetoric directed at Ms. Park – the first female president – appears to be becoming more illustrative of this.

Poland is interested in expanding its military presence. Polish Defence Minister, Tomasz Semonyak talked about on what assistance from the United States is expected by Warsaw
April 22, the U.S. announced in the direction of Poland and the Baltic countries about 600 troops to participate in the military exercises. On Polish territory would be placed the 173rd Airborne Brigade, as part of the U.S. 150.
“Thanks to the crisis in Ukraine, we understand what is needed after the NATO mission ISAF, – said Semonyak. – Alliance should concentrate on traditional mission – to ensure the collective security of its members.”
“After the Cold War, the U.S. military presence in Europe has decreased, – the Minister regretted . – From the military point of view, no matter how many U.S. troops are in Europe and where they are deployed, placing them now just in Eastern Europe would be warranted ” .
The trade department of the U.S. government has banned the delivery of Russian spacecraft American-made vehicles and those that use American “filling” , the launch of the relevant satellites was also banned , according to the American expert Peter de Seldinga .
In addition, the sanctions will affect companies who planned to launch spacecraft under contract with International Launch Services, which is owned by Space Center. Recall that in late March, the U.S. space agency suspended most contacts with Russia , except for the ISS project .
Global climate change represents a serious and growing threat to world security, and may be a catalyst for conflict in the resources-rich Arctic region as the ice shield shrinks, a group of retired top US military officers say in a new report.
The Center for Naval Analyses (CNA) Military Advisory Board says in the report – titled ‘National Security and the Accelerating Risks of Climate Change’ – that melting sea ice in the Arctic will open shipping lanes for energy exploration, setting off public and private competition for untapped reserves that lie beneath the historically forbidden region.
“Things are accelerating in the Arctic faster than we had looked at,” said General Paul Kern, chairman of the CNA military advisory board. “The changes there appear to be much more radical than we envisaged.”
Russia and China will especially vie for access to oil and other natural resources, the report states.
“As the Arctic becomes less of an ice-contaminated area it represents a lot of opportunities for Russia,” Kern said, adding that budding conflict there is accelerating “faster than we had looked at seven years ago.”
As a new era of resource-pilfering begins in the Arctic, a separate study recently released says that public and private entities are not at all prepared for an oil spill in the region.
Approximately 30 percent of the world’s undiscovered natural gas and about 15 percent of its untapped oil lies in the Arctic. But the majority, 84 percent, of the estimated 90 billion barrels of oil and 47.3 trillion cubic meters of gas remain offshore.
The CNA report echoes a recent cascade of studies and official reports that declare, more unequivocally than ever before, that global climate change poses vast, complex security risks, especially given the inevitable competition for resources amid rapid population growth.

RUSI: London. Since 1990 $60 billion spent on military intervention now recognized as errors (RUSI)
According to a report, ‘War in time of peace’.
Most of the amount – 84% – due to the intervention Iraq (2003) and Afghanistan (since 2005), which , as stressed by analysts , were subsequently deemed strategic failure .
According to their calculations, a further 30 billion pounds (50+ billion dollars) for long-term care for veterans.
Given the material costs incurred in connection with the death of the British or their wounds , including the subsequent compensation , participation in military conflicts in the period since 1990 has cost the UK an estimated up to 42 billion pounds (almost $ 75 billion), excluding care costs for veterans.
The above amounts represent the net additional costs of the kingdom – that is, it is a cost in excess of current expenditure on the armed forces , which in any case would be incurred during the period (such as the cost of fuel, training sessions and salaries) .
According to the specialists of RUSI the report noted that
“Rather than lead to a weakening of international terrorism, the invasion of 2003 (in Iraq), in fact, it has stepped up” – “strengthening of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula” (AQAP) reaction to that intervention, and followed it a marginalization Sunni population of Iraq.”
Army aviation brigade and helicopter regiments , which had not been in the Russian army began to form in the structure of the Army Air Forces . ” Now the process of increasing its ( Army Aviation ) combat strength , formed the Army Aviation Brigade , which was not previously in the structure of the Air Force, as well as separate helicopter regiments,” – Shoigu said at a meeting of the departmental board .
On the state of the helicopter fleet and problematic issues related to the delivery of new aircraft and its operation , as well as measures taken to maintain the staffing of military units in aviation at a closed meeting of the collegium of the Ministry of Defense reported to the Minister of the Russian Federation Air Force Commander Lt. Gen. Viktor Bondarev.
Dmitry Medvedev signed a decree approving a state program “Development of the aviation industry in the years 2013-2025 .” ” The total amount of funding the state program in the 2013-2025 CAGR of 991.64 billion rubles (in prices of the respective years ), of which the federal budget 714.18 billion rubles and extra-budgetary sources – 277.46 billion rubles” , – the press – In total, the program is planned to produce about 6,100 helicopters, 3,450 aircraft, more than 36,000 aircraft and other engines.
” ….. If, indeed, the current regime in Kiev has begun to use the army against the population in the country, it is without doubt, a very serious crime against the people .

Black Hornet Military Drone
The Black Hornet ( black wasp ) weighs only 16 grams and resembles a tiny toy helicopter. But in fact it is a nano-sized masterpiece of military equipment.
Personal reconnaissance system PD- 100 Black Hornet was first presented to the public in Washington. This UAV (or rather, a pair of drones), which bears the soldiers and use on the battlefield. It can be managed as easily as a radio.
British Marines operating in Afghanistan are already using the Black Hornet for a variety of tasks – ranging from tracking over the road for the upcoming ambush and ending peeping over the fence of the neighboring building. New drone designed specifically for small offices that need quick and quiet ‘camera in the sky’ , says Ole Aguirre, an employee of the Norwegian manufacturer Prox Dynamics AS. And indeed – Black Hornet is almost invisible and inaudible. Full set of PD- 100 includes two drone, charging station , remote control and mobile 18 -centimeter screen onto which images and broadcast camera drones. All this in a watertight case which weighs just 1.3 kilograms. Drones fly by GPS points to the desired goal. There they begin to transfer videos and photos to the operator. One charging them enough for 20-25 minutes, so that the range is limited to 1200 meters. The Black Hornet is also too small to carry a camera , working in the medium -infrared (MWIR), and is therefore unable to night surveillance . The smallest MWIR- sensor on the market today – FLIR Quark, which weighs twice as much of our helicopter.
In the arsenal of the British Army , there are more than 300 ‘black wasps .’ The manufacturer is not going to stop there – will be equipped with new UAV sensors and improve its performance characteristics.

Today features a strong power – nuclear weapons and powerful missile defense systems. The main module warning of an attack is radar.
Any missile defense system has to be efficient, streamlined in its use of space and computer technologies on land, water, underwater and in space. The development of a missile defense system is the most important task of modernizing an entire defense complex. Military space technology is now the area of special attention of advanced nations.

>Russian diplomatic demarches After March 1st Federation Council accepted the offer of President Vladimir Putin to send troops to Ukraine for the ” normalization of the political situation ” in the country, against Moscow -blown diplomatic war. Canada has decided to recall its ambassador from Russia. Chapter domestic embassy called “on the carpet” the British Foreign Office. Ottawa, Paris, London and Washington halted preparations for the June G8 summit in Sochi. In addition, the West began to talk about the possible introduction of political and economic sanctions against Moscow. In particular, the site of the White House began collecting signatures for a petition to exclude Russia from the WTO, the abolition of visas for members of the Russian government and their families, as well as the freezing of their bank accounts in U.S. banks. It was signed by more than 5.8 thousand people, Private Moscow promised to prepare a response and the European Union, the foreign ministers of member countries which are going on March 3, an emergency meeting in Brussels. In response to Obama’s statement offensive, senators offered to withdraw the Russian ambassador in Washington. – In fact, all this hysteria EU – no more than a PR bubble, timed to coincide with elections to the European Parliament on 25 May. According to forecasts, in the next part of it would be a large number of Eurosceptics and the current European commissioners headed by Chairman Jose Manuel Barroso will be forced to resign. New members of the same European Commission is unlikely to continue after the May elections to venture into policy toward Ukraine. According to the senator, they are too well aware that such a freeloader as Ukraine, EU members just do not feed them. – While Russia is facing a kind of diplomatic demarches, ie demonstrative actions symbolic meaning . According to experts, even China, which like Russia’s policy on discarding the Euro-Atlantic expansion, it is not necessary to wait for support. First of all – because of the rather fuzzy tenets of public international law. <p>”>At the same time, said Lukyanov, neither the U.S. nor the EU is not going to draw parallels with their own invasion “for the sake of peace” in the internal affairs , such as Iraq or Libya , as well as appeals to restore order in Syria. – Double standards have been and will be the basis of international relations. <p>”>Guided by such reflections , the U.S. and Europe at some point supported the new pro-Western government in Ukraine – eyes closed on the legal aspect of the change of power occurred , the chairman of the Moscow Bar Association ” Nikolayev and Partners” , a specialist in international law , Yuri Nikolaev. – Yanukovych was thrown out of the presidency by means of physical force . According to Nikolaev, neither Russia nor, notably, the European Union still has not submitted official documents, which would recognize the new government as the only legitimate. So, the legitimate head of Ukraine still Yanukovych . – According to Ukrainian law, Yanukovych would have to get parliamentary support before make such a request to the Russian. But here he had no choice – because people legitimately elected parliament no longer exists, – says Nikolay. Such logic is responsible positions in Moscow, which still insists on its debt. Namely – the general historical past with Ukraine and protect living on its territory of the Russian citizens. Only in the Crimea about 60 % of the population is Russian. At the UN, as a referee, too, should not count. Even if other countries try to navigate through the organization sanctions against Russia, Moscow, which has veto power, never let them miss and can block any decision by Ukraine. – Currently, these issues move from international organizations to individual States. So , contrary to the UN , the U.S. and Britain earlier decided on their own to carry democracy to Iraq on bayonets , – says Nikolay . And the interests of Ukraine in Washington no less than in the Middle East, he said. In the past year there has opened the largest diamond mine in the Kirovograd region. And the opportunity to get a military base nearby at Russia USA would be quite pleased. – This “punishment” by Brussels and Washington would be painful for Russia, – said Lukyanov . <p>”>According to Senator Andrei Klimov , the U.S. today have virtually no serious trade with Russia , but because economic sanctions Washington High Moscow will not bring harm . In particular, for Europe to replace the incoming gas from Russia will be nothing. For this reason, the EU may well begin negotiations with Russia apart from the U.S. . . – In this situation, I would generally recommend Brussels and Washington to impose sanctions against each other. With respect to the United States – for inciting civil war and explosive situation in Europe. In this economically Russia may well survive in a situation of economic sanctions from Brussels and Washington. Currently, Moscow is increasing economic ties with the BRICS countries. According to the senator, they are home to 40 % of the population. Its gold reserves in the group ahead of the European Union times. A combined GDP within the BRICS states exceeds the GDP of the U.S. and EU. 3rd March. 2014
