The introduction of sanctions against Russia was the biggest miscalculation of the administration of the President of the United States Barack Hussein Obama, says financial analyst Robert Burke. In his article he writes that as the US itself has pushed Russia to establish friendly relations with China, And it is contrary to the interests of the country.

Burke points to another aspect of the agreements: China will Finance most of the cost of construction of a gas pipeline from Siberia to China. So, says the Creator, the Chinese authorities solve the problem of energy dependence on U.S. energy supplies by sea, one of the key levers of pressure the United States to Beijing.
This analyst recalls that the Russian Federation and China before the introduction of the sanctions regime were not even military companions, Now Russia plans to supply Asian partner modern ballistic missile systems that will make the sea and airspace of China in practice invulnerable.

Also Burke speaks about the fact that China, with $4 trillion in foreign exchange reserves, will be able to displace American investors with space development and processing of oil fields in Russia. Thus, argues analyst, billions of dollars were invested in the Russian energy sector company ExxonMobil. Now it will be replaced by Chinese investors, which will lead to the loss nested American investment company.
