The Russian military department is waiting for an explanation of the Pentagon’s position in connection with the statement by US Secretary of Defense James Mattis about the need to conduct a dialogue with Moscow from a position of strength, the channel reports RT.



We are ready to restore cooperation with the Pentagon. But attempts to build a dialogue from a position of strength towards Russia are hopeless.
, quotes the channel of the Minister of Defense of Russia Sergey Shoigu.

Recall, on Wednesday, the new head of the Pentagon, James Mattis, during a meeting with NATO allies, said that Washington was open to restoring relations with Moscow, but added: "At the same time, we are realistic in our expectations and recommendations to our diplomats to negotiate from a position of strength."

Shoigu recalled that on February 16, Baku will host a meeting between the Chief of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces, Valery Gerasimov, and a US counterpart, Joseph Danford. And at this meeting, Russia will wait for an explanation of the position of the Pentagon.

As previously reported, at the talks in Baku it is planned to discuss "the current state and prospects of military cooperation between the Russian Federation and the United States, as well as issues of preventing incidents in connection with the military activities of the parties."

          What hawk is he? So-so - a torn crow, which became famous for not sparing its soldiers. It’s just that naphthalene doesn’t want to quickly change his uniform to a pensioner's jacket and drives what the European “victims of the occupation” want to hear from him.

          “For a long time it was already possible to predict that this frantic hatred, which is growing stronger and stronger every year in the West against Russia, will ever break the chain. This moment has come ... This whole West has come to express its denial of Russia and block its path to the future."
          It was written .... in 1854, about the Crimean War (1853–1856) by the Russian poet and diplomat Fedor Tyutchev. Why do we need cooperation with the Pentagon? Let this "mad dog" bark over the ocean and howl at the moon in Europe.

        it’s funny to watch the statements of these rat snouts that never really had a serious conflict with an equal opponent (not to mention defeating such an opponent), always stick to the winner’s side, take off political, economic and other creams and scream loudly that they’re the main the participant and the winner, amerzot in a word, are not in vain on the coat of arms of the vulture, only in modern realities they can’t sit behind a puddle, although they are still looking for fools who will carry chestnuts out of the fire for them (for example, Europe, which has not lived with its head for a long time)

        There is a wonderful rule: WANT PEACE - PREPARE FOR WAR.
        Hitler began the war because he was sure of the inability of the USSR to resist his army.
        And if people like Mattis have confidence in the possibility of starting a war with impunity, believe them they will unleash it.

      This topic was imposed on everyone, according to the principle that everyone knows - "....... (at the discretion), it will restore order." Trump and his team are the president of the United States, that’s it, and Putin is the president of the Russian Federation. And after the meeting, nothing will change. In my opinion, for too long we have called them "partners." You need to call a spade a spade - and you will be happy. We were stuck in surprise, and for a very long, indecently long. So we get now according to our expectations. Respect the strong, as a rule.

        If now we recognize them not as partners, but as open enemies, you can slip into a war, but the current Russian elite does not want this, because much will be lost.

    This old dog, they say, has never been pleasant with diplomacy. Diplomacy is not a military craft. But apparently in a different way they do not know how to declare themselves and are not particularly trying. In principle, nothing new. Without such rhetoric, they are quickly put on the list of Kremlin agents and dismissed. But it will be interesting to look at this elderly cowboy at a personal meeting with Shoigu. When will it take place?

      When we (instead of or together with our current GDP leader) have the same industrial-economic GDP as the hongfuz, then we will also speak with them through the lip ...
      And with 12 places, it’s hard to “look into the eyes” of the global industrial giant. To do this, it is necessary to “run ahead” somewhat, or at least equalize in industrial production and the level of population consumption ... However.
      And the fact that we have an effective nuclear club gives us the opportunity to not be afraid of the threats of Mr. Bully. Because both he and we know for sure that the Yankees can “swing rights” to a certain limit, until we “frown sternly eyebrows” and the jokes run out ... They know this well.

    Drugan serves in Sevastopol and was in Syria, says five modern ships at our one modern ship at NATO, our propaganda is not worth a damn, and we still have ships from the USSR.
    And if you take the whole mess and the blasphemy that reigns in economics and politics, then in general, in the ass, right now we are not Stalin in power and we are far from the USSR. Before starting a company in Syria, it would not hurt to restore order in Ukraine, otherwise we will bomb in Syria, and in the Donbass thousands of Russians will bomb and kill us.

      I don’t know where he served, and if your friend served at all, but you’re definitely singing or serving with the State Department.

        As recalls the search for "Kremlin agents" ...
        Give you, uncle, the state an instrument with the help of which you could fearlessly slander your neighbors, agree, you would use it with pleasure, huh? Even the percentage would not have to be unfastened from revenue when seizing the property of the accused, huh?)

    You know, the position of the authorities regarding ... surprises me what to call it? Influences through various organizations?
    Why are there only sluggish attempts to fight back from the accusations, but almost never, loud, vivid accusations of anyone, anything from various stands, in various media, and not only those that operate within the country?

    As these warriors are already sick of it, but seriously, this is probing Russia with the new Trump team, which is not very pro and even less so from diplomacy, we will see.

    One hundred percent will say, do not pay attention, this is for the internal audience. For so long ago, the Turkish leader also spoke in the same spirit. And then they apologized.

    A handsome man swam: “I see no reason to respond to Russian statements. I can only say that NATO is an alliance ready to defend its principles and our way of life, ”Mattis said.

    My question is: will our government play for a long time an innocent dowager bride who has squandered her inheritance on an alpha-groom? So you can lose everything in the world.
    Or is faith in the “good king” not uprooted?
