A military expert said that Britain has developed complexes due to the power of the Russian Navy

Great Britain is experiencing a certain inferiority complex, because in the line of the navy, London today will lose to many countries of the world. About this in an interview FAN said a well-known Russian military expert, captain of the first rank of the reserve Vasily Dandykin.

Daily Express reporters said the largest navy, led by flagship aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth, embarked on a “seven-month world odyssey” to showcase “the country’s protection, diplomacy and prosperity.” Ten British ships carry 3.7 thousand sailors, pilots and marines. The flotilla must take part in the Strike Warrior maneuvers and visit several dozen countries.

However, in the waters off North Scotland, the British flotilla was intercepted by two Russian ships. The British lament that this is the first time in 40 years. Analysts suggested that the Russians might be interested in the fifth generation F-35B fighters based on the aircraft carrier.

“The British flotilla was intercepted by Russian spy ships after going to sea for the first time in 40 years,” the PolitRussia reports.

It is also noted that reconnaissance ships, presumably belonging to the Northern Fleet of the Russian Navy, were spotted by the US Navy P8 patrol aircraft. Military experts believe that the ships of the Russian fleet will accompany the British aircraft carrier group throughout the seven-month voyage.

As military expert Vasily Dandykin told the Federal News Agency in an interview with the Federal News Agency, the British ships will have to meet with the Russian Navy more than once in the future.

“Russia does not hide the fact that it has reconnaissance ships, including new ones – Project 18280. It is their regular job – to know what’s what. Moreover, Great Britain is our neighbor in the North Atlantic, and this is the area of ​​responsibility of the Russian Northern Fleet. I think that we will still hear such statements from the British, given the fact that the British flotilla will one way or another collide in the Mediterranean with our ships from the task force, which is based in the Syrian port of Tartus. There they will be able to see our submarine, too, ”said the FAN interlocutor.

Also, the captain of the first rank of the reserve said that Great Britain had developed an inferiority complex due to the fact that England had lost the status of a maritime superpower, which the United States, China and the growing power of Russia claim today.

“As for the UK campaign itself, I can say that this is a PR campaign. In addition, the British want to send two of their ships from the navy to the Black Sea in order to support Ukraine in this way. This is how London intends to show that Britain is still an empire. But where is England and where is the Black Sea? This is no longer the military campaign that was at Margaret Thatcherwhen the British dealt with Argentina. Now the situation is different – Great Britain is experiencing a certain inferiority complex, because in terms of the navy, London is now clearly inferior to the United States and China. Now even France and Japan have more opportunities to build up their navies than Britain. So the British want to show that there is still gunpowder in the flasks. For this, they assembled a flotilla on the bottom of the barrel. And the main message: Great Britain is the main vanguard in the fight against Russia. Therefore, we are waiting for new messages about “insidious” Russian submarines and aircraft that will intercept the British fleet. And all because of the fact that the Russian Navy, despite all the obstacles, is gaining strength from year to year, ”summed up Vasily Dandykin.

Earlier, the Federal News Agency reported that the Russian Navy frigate “Admiral Makarov” armed with “Calibers” entered the Mediterranean.


The captain of the reserve of the Russian Federation told how Russia will respond to uninvited guests of NATO in the Black Sea

Russia has two loyal allies – the army and the navy, which will not allow anyone to dominate the Black Sea. This opinion with FAN shared a well-known Russian military expert, captain of the first rank of the reserve Vasily Dandykin.

The Times, citing sources in the British Navy, reported that the destroyer and anti-submarine frigate of the Royal Navy of Great Britain will enter the Black Sea in May in solidarity with Ukraine. The Turkish Foreign Ministry confirmed that London has sent Ankara a notification that its ships will pass through the Bosphorus to the Black Sea in the first week of May.

The Russian Foreign Ministry believes that the entry of British warships into the Black Sea is aimed at intimidating the Russian Federation, in addition, the West is trying to influence Moscow’s course. At the same time, the department recalled the Montreux Convention, which determines the maximum number and mass of ships of non-Black Sea countries, which can simultaneously be in the Black Sea.

Readers of the British newspaper Times commented on the decision of the authorities to send warships to the Black Sea. Opinions were divided. Some say that Crimea is a suitable place for war, others that sending ships to Russian shores is a stupid idea, since Britain will not dare to use them anyway, and Moscow is well aware of this.

“Crimea is generally a suitable place for war,” says the user under the nickname Disgusted Tunbridge Wells.

“It seems to me that our five ships should be in the English Channel and patrol our shores. Rule Britain over the seas, ”said David Grant.

Military expert Vasily Dandykin, in an interview with the Federal News Agency, commented on the UK’s decision to send warships to the Black Sea to support Ukraine. The specialist recalled that the elite of British society died in the battle of Balaklava.

“This is the expected reaction from UK residents. Probably, in part, every Englishman has a nostalgia for the British Empire. They honor their colonial traditions, which are also associated with Crimea. There are many places on the peninsula where the British were. I want to remind you that the elite of British society, including a relative, died in the battle of Balaklava. Winston Churchill… But in England there are also descendants of The Beatles who advocated world peace. They understand that the cruise of the British ships will not end with anything – they will walk around and go home. If the British have decided to go to the shores of the Crimea, then they need to remember the Yalta Conference. The world is still holding on to the decisions that were made at this meeting, ”said the FAN interlocutor.

Also, the captain of the first rank of the reserve told how Russia will respond to the uninvited guests of NATO in the Black Sea. According to him, the Black Sea Fleet is the sole master in the Black Sea region and will not allow anyone to dominate here.

“Unfortunately, Britain nevertheless decided to send two of its ships to the Black Sea, following in the wake of the Americans. I think that with each such campaign, more and more people in the UK will look negatively at the actions of their authorities. Now the country already has a lot of problems associated with Brexit, pandemic, internal separatism of Scotland, Northern Ireland and so on. But for some reason, the British authorities are confident that these two ships, which they sent to the Black Sea, can somehow influence Russia, that, they say, after that the country will become more accommodating. Those days have already passed. If in 1999 the change in the course of Russia and the growth of Russian self-awareness were a timid bell, today there are loud battle bells, which indicate that our country has two loyal allies – the army and the navy. They will not allow anyone to dominate the Black Sea. In my opinion, the Black Sea Fleet is the master there, and all [остальные] – only uninvited guests, ”summed up Vasily Dandykin.

Earlier, the Federal News Agency reported that Sohu analysts have revealed how Moscow will respond to US provocations near Russian borders.

Due to the improvement in the climate of South America, there was a general drop in grain prices in Chicago

The prices of grains in the Chicago futures market closed today with general falls, among which the falls of US $ 8.54 in soybeans and US $ 5.97 in wheat stood out.

In the case of soybeans, the contracts agreed for January fell 1.95% (US $ 8.54), ending at US $ 429.35, and fell 1.94% (US $ 8.53) in the sales agreed for March , which were traded at US $ 429.72.

The Rosario Stock Exchange indicated that the drop was based on “that doubts persist regarding Sino-US trade.”

“There is expectation regarding the possibility that China will resume important purchases of the bean this week, compared to last week with a much slower rate of purchases. The import of soybeans by Brazil from the United States could have cut losses”, added the Rosario entity.

With a similar trend, soybean by-products accompanied the decline with a decrease in oil of 2.11% (US $ 18.08) to US $ 835.10, and a decrease in flour of 1.35% (US $ 5.95) to $ 433.31.

The December corn contract ended the day down 1.35% (US $ 2.26) to US $ 165.25.

Recent rains reduce the impact of the drought in Brazil and Argentina, improving production expectations. The declines are lessened by external demand that remains strong for yellow beans, indicated the BCR.

Meanwhile, wheat in its position in December ended today’s wheel with a fall of 2.72% (US $ 5.97) to US $ 213.21.

The BCR explained that a very favorable climate in Australia improves production expectations, which expects a 10% increase this season, reaching 31.17 Mt. Likewise, a rise in the export quota of Russia, an important exporter, is expected. which would lower prices even more.


A hard Brexit would be a massive burden for agricultural markets | Chamber of Agriculture

LK is pushing for an EU free trade agreement with Great Britain

Great Britain left the EU on January 31st of this year, but the British economy is still part of the EU customs union or the EU internal market until the end of the year. In order to continue to enable close trade and economic relations between the remaining EU countries and Great Britain, a free trade agreement has been negotiated since the formal exit. So far, however, hardly any significant progress in negotiations has been achieved. “The Chamber of Agriculture is pushing for a positive conclusion to the free trade talks soon in order to avoid a threatening double blow for the agricultural and food markets as a result of Brexit and the renewed worsening Corona situation in Europe. The Brexit negotiators must now do everything in their power to ensure that economic and trade relations are maintained even after the UK leaves the EU internal market at the end of the year, ”appeals LK President Michaela Langer-Weninger.

Great Britain is an important EU agricultural and food export market

Great Britain occupies a special position within Europe insofar as it only has a self-sufficiency rate of around 60 percent for agricultural goods and food. In the past year 2019, agricultural goods and food with a value of 58 billion euros were exported to Great Britain from other EU countries. This primarily involves dairy products, meat and processed foods. In the event of a hard Brexit, i.e. in the event of an exit from the customs union without a free trade agreement, the WTO rules would apply in future to trade with Great Britain and therefore considerable tariffs would apply to dairy and meat products in particular. In addition, there are so-called non-tariff trade barriers, such as different production standards, veterinary and phytosanitary controls as well as clearance costs would make exports to Great Britain even more expensive in this case. The main aim of an EU free trade agreement with the UK must be to ensure a level playing field between the EU and the UK. As a result of interdependencies in the EU internal market that has grown over decades, agricultural trade in particular, and with it the entire agricultural and food sector, would feel the effects of a no-deal Brexit.

Uncertainty as a burden for the markets

Less than four months before the end of the Brexit transition phase, the conditions under which agricultural and food exports to Great Britain can take place from January onwards are currently completely open. Direct exports of Austrian agricultural and food exports to Great Britain do not play a major role, but in the event of a hard Brexit, Austrian producers would also be massively affected by the indirect effects of the strongly increasing market and price pressure on the EU internal market. “Time is of the essence and the Chamber of Agriculture is therefore calling for a willingness to compromise on both sides of the English Channel in the ongoing free trade talks, so that, in addition to overcoming the current Corona economic crisis, another major market problem can be effectively prevented,” emphasizes LK President Michaela Langer-Weninger .


Dry weather drives wheat and soybeans to multi-year highs in Chicago

US wheat and soybean futures rose to multi-year highs on Tuesday, supported by concerns about dry weather in key production areas, traders said.

* Corn futures, meanwhile, reached their highest level in eight and a half months, after the pace of the harvest in the United States fell below expectations despite ideal weather for field work.

* Dry conditions in South America could boost already strong demand for US supplies as farmers in Brazil struggle to plant in parched soils.

* “A delayed planting means a delayed harvest, delaying the start of Brazil’s export season,” Arlan Suderman, chief commodities economist at StoneX brokerage, said in a note.

* November soybeans on the Chicago stock market closed up 22.5 cents at $ 10.44 a bushel. The most active soybean contract peaked at $ 10.5375 a bushel, its highest level since May 3, 2018.

* The lack of rain in the next few days should further delay Brazil’s planting, consulting firm AgRural said on Monday.

* July soft red winter wheat ended the session up 8.5 cents to $ 5.9275 a bushel. The most active contract peaked at $ 6.0175 a bushel, its highest price since June 30, 2015.

* The drought in Argentina will add stress to the development of the wheat crop of that key exporter, said the firm Commodity Weather Group in a note.

* Chicago corn for December rose 5.5 cents to $ 3.85 a bushel, and the most active contract reached its highest level since January 24.
