Russia represents one of the most serious dangers for vital US interests, especially given the fact that American power currently tends to decrease, The Heritage Foundation analysts report leads The Washington Free Beacon.


American analysts again called Russia one of the most serious threats to the US


Moscow, with its “permanent presence in Ukraine, military intervention in Syria and provocations by US allies in NATO, represents the most serious threat to Washington’s interests around the world,” the report said.

It is noted that Russia is one of the 6-ty threats that have intensified in the world recently. The remaining five are China, the DPRK, Iran, terrorists in Afghanistan, and also terrorist groups in the Middle East.

“Russia seeks to expand its strategic position in the world at the expense of the United States. It also seeks to undermine the influence of the United States, oppresses the forces of Washington and NATO, "the newspaper quotes the article Look.

VKS RF “allowed Bashar Asad to remain in power,” which “undermined American policy in the Middle East,” the authors note.

In addition, it indicates the nuclear potential of the Russian Federation and its increased capabilities in cyberspace.

According to analysts, today, the US armed forces will not be able to cope with two rivals at once, being able to "meet the demands of only one major regional conflict." The reason for this is "the lack of financial resources and the reduction of the armed forces in recent years."

“America’s leading role remains in question, perhaps more than ever after the end of the Cold War,” the researchers said.

The analysis of the institute is made against the background of discussions about how Donald Trump intends to approach the issue of relations between the United States and the Russian Federation.

              If the Soviet production, then it should be 16 faces in the number of republics.

              September 11 marks the 70th anniversary of the famous Soviet faceted glass.
              This integral attribute of Soviet life was first made in 1943 at the oldest glass factory in Russia in the city of Gus-Khrustalny exactly in the form in which we are accustomed to see it.
              A classic of Soviet-era dishes, today a faceted glass is becoming a rarity.

              The Soviet faceted glass was created by the sculptor. At least, it is believed that the design for this glass was developed by the famous Soviet sculptor, creator of the famous monument “Worker and Collective Farm Girl” Vera Mukhina. According to one legend, she created this “masterpiece” of glassware together with the author of the “Black Square” Kazimir Malevich in besieged Leningrad in 1943.
              The cost of a glass depended on the number of faces. Glasses with 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, and 20 faces were produced. There were 17 more, but the issue with an odd number of faces is more complicated, so we settled on the most acceptable and convenient - with 16 faces. The first faceted glasses were with 10 faces and cost 3 kopecks. The classic 16-faceted - 7 kopecks, and if it is more corrugated, with 20 faces, then 14 kopecks. But the capacity of the glass remained unchanged: to the glass rim - 200 ml, to the edges - 250 ml.
              The appearance of a faceted glass is due to scientific and technological progress. This form and structure of the glass was dictated by the production necessity, and not by the artist’s imagination. Even before the war, Soviet engineers invented a miracle of technology - a dishwasher in which dishes of only a certain shape and size could be washed. It was such a glass that was very suitable for this unit, and besides, it was very durable because of the thickness and a special method of manufacturing glass.
              The Moldavian historian calls the Soviet faceted glass as the reason for drunkenness in Moldova. According to Vyacheslav Stavile, until 1944, until the Soviet troops liberated Moldova from the Nazi occupiers, they drank 50 ml of small glasses from the country. Soviet soldiers brought a faceted roomy glass, steady against falling and durable. After that, the Moldavians began to drink more.
              In the 80s of the XX century, Soviet faceted glasses began to explode en masse. There were rumors among the people about a new anti-alcohol campaign, about the machinations of the capitalists, who encroached on the "holy" and chose the most successful object. But everything turned out to be much more prosaic. An imported glass production line was delivered to the plant and they no longer took into account the exact manufacturing technology. As a result, the glasses began to crumble, burst at the seams, their bottom fell off. One woman "exploded" the table set for the holiday. This fact was noted in one of the issues of the satirical newsreel "Wick".
              (I myself witnessed such a case, the glass pulled like a pomegranate when boiling water was poured into it. But the reason is simple, when cooling quickly in the glass, tension arises and in order not to break it, it was necessary to withstand glasses in an oven where the temperature dropped gradually)

      Meanwhile, Xi Jinping is proposing an alliance of Russia against the NATO bloc. And this is more serious than the Warsaw Pact. It is a pity that India is not friends with China, so the union of the three powers would become that force, in comparison with which NATO would appear to be a macramé knitting circle.

    “Russia seeks to expand its strategic position in the world at the expense of the United States.

    A very interesting statement. Somehow in public transport I saw the situation: a burly woman sat on a double seat, took almost all of them with her "fifth point" and when another woman entered with a child and tried to put him on the remaining free strip of the seat, the road lady also began to be indignant that children can and stand. For some reason, the indignation of the United States resembles that very expensive woman with very large volumes. For some reason, there is a desire to say: "You need to eat less, then others will stop interfering!" Where is the USA and where is the Middle East? Maybe it will be enough to consider the whole world as its fiefdom, so as not to be surprised and not indignant that somewhere the United States is beginning to "infringe" ?!

Russia and China do not fit into this concept and are not going to support it.

    And 2-3 months ago, Russia was the first or second of the THREE threats ...

    “Russia seeks to expand its strategic position in the world at the expense of the United States. She also seeks to undermine US influence, oppresses the forces of Washington and NATO "

    Wah, poor wretches. Russia really seeks to expand its influence in the world, but not "AT THE EXPENSE of the US", but on the basis of a pragmatic desire to protect its strategic interests. She (Russia) has repeatedly stated openly about the zone of these interests, to which she received sarcastic answers in the spirit of "regional dwarf", "country-gas station", etc. So it is not a trace of "an exceptional country-gendarme" to be offended by that she is being moved from a pedestal. Even in the comments on Russia's decision to withdraw from the Rome status of the International Criminal Court, the United States got off with a crafty half-truth, while they themselves did not join this "club" and did not recognize its powers.

    In a short time, Russia had a big account for NATO.
    1. The military component of NATO approached the borders of the Russian Federation.
    2. The military coup in Ukraine.
    3. An attempt to unleash a war between Georgia and Russia.
    4. Discriminatory attitude to Russian business.
    I wonder that Finkinton is not yet a radioactive desert. There was no military coup in Berlin, and small Britain was not under water. They don’t understand a good word, and it’s impossible to have a good word with them. They woke the bear and cry in horror. Cook a lot of gold, it may still turn out to pay off!
