Reshetnikov urged to solve logistics issues for Russia’s “pivot” to Asia

According to the head of the Ministry of Economic Development, the current supply chains with Asian countries are more suitable for trade in raw materials, and for the development of mutual trade, Russia needs to “solve issues with logistics”

For a successful turn of Russian foreign economic activity to Asia Russia needs to solve logistics issues in a new way. About this “RIA Novosti” said Minister of Economic Development Maxim Reshetnikov.

“If we are talking about the development of trade [with Asia], then we will also have to solve logistics issues. The logistics chains that exist now are suitable for trade, relatively speaking, in grain, trade in petroleum products. And as for, for example, the supply of fertilizers, here the logistics are already more complicated— where to carry, how to ship»,— the minister explained.

According to him, it is problematic to transport such cargoes through the north-west of Russia, therefore, at present, the authorities are developing the corridor north— south using the infrastructure of the southern neighbors. “There are also opportunities to use the Eurasian infrastructure, the potential of our neighbors as transit countries,” he added.

In addition, Reshetnikov announced an increase in the capacity of Russia's Far Eastern ports. “We are evaluating how ready our ports are to export all this— These are the questions we are currently working on. We need new opportunities there, including an increase in container handling,— he said.

Since the end of February, many Western companies have announced the suspension of activities in Russia, as well as the suspension of supplies. Such a decision was made, for example, by the world's largest container operator Maersk and the American logistics company UPS. Sea lines MSC, Hapag-Lloyd and Yang Ming have also suspended vessel bookings (bookings) in the direction of Russia. In addition, several dozen countries closed the skies for Russian airlines, which forced them to stop flying to the EU countries, the USA, Canada, etc.

Ex-ambassador reported about US deception regarding Ukraine’s accession to NATO

Former US Ambassador McFaul: American diplomats deceived Ukraine about joining NATO

For several years, United States diplomats promised Ukraine to join the North Atlantic Alliance (NATO), which turned out to be a lie. This was stated by former US Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul, speaking at The Munk Debate.

Thus, the moderator of the debate, Radoslav Sikorsky, reminded McFaul of the promises made by Washington to Kyiv on the country's accession to NATO and asked the question— “Did the [American] diplomats lie?”

The ex-ambassador answered in the affirmative, adding that this is how the “real world” works.

McFaul served as US Ambassador to Moscow from 2012 to 2014. In November 2016, he came under Russian sanctions. The diplomat claimed that this was due to his close ties with former US President Barack Obama. According to the Russian Foreign Ministry, McFaul came under restrictions due to “targeted damage to Russian-American relations.”

In March 2021, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky approved a national military security strategy. The document envisaged measures to strengthen integration with NATO for further membership in it.

He also repeatedly criticized the position of Western countries on Ukraine's membership in the alliance. In September, the Ukrainian leader also discussed this issue at the talks with Joe Biden, and, according to Zelensky, the US President announced his consent to Ukraine's entry into NATO.

Zakharova spoke about attempts to recruit diplomats by Western intelligence agencies

Psychological pressure is being exerted on Russian diplomats abroad, some of them have faced recruitment attempts by the secret services of Western countries. This was stated by the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova, reports TASS.

“In Western countries or countries where the corresponding influence of the special services is high, they [Russian diplomats] received specific proposals not at the level of single approaches, but at the level of specific letters, addressed to personal mail, personal messengers. At the level of blackmail and threats about what they will receive in the form of bonuses, if they, feeling their conscience awakened, follow it, go outside the embassy and begin to interact with the relevant special services, — she said.

In addition, according to Zakharova, Russian diplomats face “psychological violence” on a daily basis, and diplomatic property is “damaged.” “These are all kinds of” creativity ” in relation to our embassies, these are attacks on cars. <…> Diplomats really live on the front lines,— she added.

The official representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs believes that one of the goals of such a “political campaign” against Russia is the exclusion from the international community of the Russian diplomatic service.

Earlier, Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov said that the Russian embassy operates “in a hostile environment”; and threats of physical violence against its employees. “American intelligence officials flit around the Russian embassy, ​​handing out FBI and CIA phones that you can call to establish cooperation,” — the ambassador said. He also clarified that politicians publish in the American media calls for embassy staff and the military to “go over to the side of the so-called democracy.”

In mid-April, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that “virtually terrorist acts” had been carried out against Russian institutions abroad. Lavrov added that not only diplomats are being threatened: Russian citizens, he said, are regularly attacked. He recommended employees of diplomatic missions abroad “not to walk alone.”

Blinken joked about relations with Russia with a line from a Taylor Swift song

US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, speaking to alumni of Georgetown University, quoted a song by American singer Taylor Swift, hinting that Washington might not restore relations with the Russian leadership. The broadcast was hosted by the Reuters YouTube channel.

According to the diplomat, such a move on his part would be “undiplomatic and cringeworthy.”

After launched a special operation in Ukraine, many Western countries, including the EU and the United States, imposed sanctions against Russia. The restrictions included foreign exchange reserves, financial and industrial companies, as well as high-ranking officials and the military. In addition, in April, the United States expelled 10 Russian diplomats from Washington, bringing the number of diplomatic workers from Russia to a historic low.

At the same time, he promised to create an attractive investment climate for foreign companies. He also called on the countries of the world to take patronage over the Ukrainian regions, cities and industries affected by the hostilities in order to ensure their full recovery.

At the end of March, the EU announced the creation of a solidarity trust fund with Ukraine, inviting international partners to participate. The union promised to provide assistance to the country even after the end of hostilities in order to contribute to its restoration.
