      If Trump is not a stupid fellow, he will now transfer troops against Salafists and South American drug lords. Capturing Arab oil will give the United States enormous opportunities, put all Islamic terrorism into cancer, depriving it of finance and giving the opportunity to put pressure on Russia to control oil prices, and from the debt hole will help get out. As for Japan and others, these are expenses that the US does not need today ... If not stupid guys gather in Washington, then they will do so.

        I hope that Putin is not a monkey to blindly imitate a stranger's demonstrative-demagogic and manipulative example of the United States on revising WWII results by victorious countries regarding defeated Japan in the issue of the Kuril Islands belonging to Russia.

            I’m here next to these islands, so I worry most of all that the Japanese will just appear there, but I’m generally silent about the transfer. Even you write while does not give. I won’t write further, there is already one point. We will wait for what the management says, a little remains. hi

              The recent economic crisis has greatly changed the picture of labor migration in Russia. Many qualified foreign specialists left the country

          The conflict with Japan will never end, because this state has always attacked all its neighbors throughout its history. A peace treaty with Japan is not even worth the paper on which it can be written.

            First of all, we need to increase the strength of the Pacific Fleet, as the Japanese are building their fleet at a good pace. And so that they do not have any illusions, it is necessary to introduce new ships and certainly the ocean zone into the Pacific Fleet as soon as possible.
