It became known which goods continue to be imported into the United States from Russia, despite the sanctions.
Russian expert Valentin Katasonov, based on information from open sources, analyzed the exchange of goods between Russia and other countries against the backdrop of the sanctions policy of the West.
As “Free Press” writes, while the US and the EU continue to impose new restrictions on Russia, the States themselves, even after February 24, since the start of the NWO in Ukraine, continue to buy wood, metals, uranium, titanium, food and other goods.
Referring to the opinion of foreign observer Drago Bosnich, the analyst exposed the hypocrisy of Washington, which forced Europe to abandon relations with the Russian Federation, but at the same time continues to actively cooperate with the Russian side.
Moreover, the American authorities are trying to hide from the “partners” the import of many goods from Russia. For example, recently the United States began to transport Russian products through Turkey.
This, in particular, was reported by the Yeni Safak newspaper at the end of August, citing sources in Turkish business.
As the expert notes, the analysis of foreign economic relations between the RS and other countries is difficult due to the fact that the Russian Federal Customs Service, as well as other departments, have closed operational statistical information on the country's foreign trade.
However, thanks to information from other countries with which Russia maintains economic relations, Katasonov drew conclusions about the exchange of goods between our country and other states.
So, according to the US Department of Commerce, in the period from January to July 2022, goods from America in the amount of $1.30 billion.
At the same time, imports to the USA and Russia amount to $11.64 billion over the same period.
Thus, supplies from Russia to the USA exceed the purchase from there by 9 times.
Recall that after February 24, Washington imposed trade sanctions against Russia. Particularly tough measures concerned the supply of goods from the United States. Thus, the West sought to bleed the Russian economy by stopping the supply of important goods.
However, many goods will continue to be brought to the United States from Russia – from wood to weapons-grade titanium.
Despite the drop in turnover by about half, deliveries are still on a large scale.
The expert states that not only timber, timber, metals and foodstuffs are brought to the United States from Russia, but also radioactive materials (47 lots, 7.7 thousand tons), and some of these goods may fall under the category “strategically significant“ #8221;.
Also, they still bring to the USA from Russia: “electrodes made of carbon and graphite” (39 lots, 8.4 thousand tons), “ammunition” (47 lots, 3.39 thousand tons), “equipment for oil production” (20 lots, 791.99 tons), “data processing equipment” (11 lots, 446.5 tons), “optical fiber” (8 lots, 388.41 tons), “turbines” (2 lots 45.43 tons) and other goods.
“I believe that at least some of the above groups of goods can and should be classified as “of strategic importance”. The question arises why, after February 24, Moscow continued to supply the country, which declared us a direct enemy”, & # 8211; the expert wonders.
Earlier, TopNews wrote that The Hague wants to ask for the lifting of anti-Russian sanctions.
Last August, it was reported that restrictions could be lifted until 2023.
