He came, looked and won (Handelsblatt, Germany)



If Donald Trump would like to do a great favor to Vladimir Putin with his supposed relationship with Russia, then at least in the Persian Gulf he does it. Because the ruler of Russia became the main winner in the global geopolitical struggle, during which the Kremlin for a long time looked like a loser.

Before Trump’s delicate Middle East initiative, the situation was as follows: Western sanctions imposed in response to the annexation of the Crimea should have isolated Russia. The Russian economy has fallen, billions from the Moscow Stabilization Fund quickly burned out. In Syria, Russia's last ally, the dictator Bashar Asad, was forced to defend himself, since he was on the verge of overthrow. During the bombing of Libya by the West, Moscow was outraged that the ruler of Muammar Gaddafi was overthrown, contrary to the UN mandate. According to the Kremlin, a regime change organized from outside occurred in Libya. According to allegations from Moscow, NATO increasingly pressed a huge empire. Vladimir Putin was angry, relations with the West darkened. For more than a year, the concept of “new cold war” in Europe remains a popular expression.

Today, the situation looks completely different - only partly due to the actions of the Kremlin’s host, Vladimir Putin. And above all, because he took over the tactics that his rival Angela Merkel successfully applied, and which has now also benefited him: wait and let the others figure it out. This, coupled with several active independent steps, once again brought Russia to the leading position in the global hierarchy, which has already been written off by historians, political scientists and some Western politicians. And its value will continue to grow - including thanks to Trump.

Probably, in reality, the intervention of Russian hackers in the course of the election campaign in the United States in order to bring Trump to power will never be proved. As well as the assumption, which still remains a topic only on CNN - as if cybercriminals from Russia falsified reports on the website of the Qatar news agency that other Gulf countries have isolated a small country because of this.

But the fact is that the United States and Europe have as passionately fallen out as the Arab world. The head of the White House spent his first trip in the Royal Palace of Saudi Arabia. In Riyadh, Trump enthusiastically praised despots, not realizing that because of their stubborn behavior, they were often the culprits of the riots in the region, which were called the "Arab Spring". While Trump is in Arabic dancing with sabers in Riyadh, Western intelligence agencies blame Sunni Islam leaders for supporting Salafi groups, funding radical mosques in Europe, and patronizing criminals who perpetrated the September 11 attack at the World Trade Center in New York. But Iran and Qatar are found guilty of financing terrorists.

With his policy, Trump split the Arabs, whom they really wanted to unite against Iran. And he supports those who rely on the army, and not on diplomacy, although the Sunni alliance under the leadership of Saudi Arabia has repeatedly won the fight for Yemen from a military point of view from a military point of view. Even without the help of logistic and intelligence support from the United States, Britain and Israel.

Trump fired a dangerous flame, and Putin warms his hands on it

When the West wanted to isolate Russia, China and Iran were on the side of Moscow. Since the military rose in power in Cairo again, Russia has again been a welcome partner in Egypt. The current conflict in the Persian Gulf is driving not only Qatar to the Kremlin, who has already secured a stake in the Russian oil giant Rosneft. Turkey, a NATO country, has turned its back on Europe in this dispute. Anti-Russian sanctions never concerned a truly important gas industry and Swift payment system was not turned off. Increasingly loud cries even from the West, calling for the lifting of sanctions, join the craven policy.

In Syria, Russia resolutely stood with Iran on the side of the dictator Assad, and now has again become one of the decisive forces in the Arab region. Turkey, which turned away from Europe, has long seen Russia as a close partner. Iran is firmly on the side of Moscow.

China, which Trump insulted with its attitude to climate issues, is already close to Putin. In Libya, the Russian energy concerns have long been firmly established and are politically much more closely interacting with the new regime than the European competitors. The countries of the Persian Gulf are currently politically disconnected themselves. And Trump cannot turn his back on Russia when it comes to finding partners in the fight against international terrorism. Today we can say about Putin by a variation of the quote by Julius Caesar: he came, looked and won.

      As long as the salary of the nanny in the kindergarten (and their equivalent workers) remains in the amount of 3500-4500 rubles, and the managers and officials will be fattening, there can be no question of any victory!

      Moreover, over whom !?

        1. By presidential decree, the average salary of a teacher per month should not be less than 62 rubles, below this threshold serious proceedings in the flesh begin before being removed from their posts!
        2. Teachers 67 rubles. (sometimes the situation for the teacher is 000 hours a week, but the organization has to pay him 3 so as not to spoil the statistics)
        3. The salary of the sales manager on average 30-000 rubles per month
        4. Do not write such nonsense anymore.

    The phrase "sanctions imposed in response to the annexation of Crimea" scratches with deceit.
    In this historical episode, the truth is:
    "The Russian Federation, having organized, in accordance with international rules, a national referendum in the Crimea and forcing out the Armed Forces from the peninsula without firing a shot, thereby ensuring its security:
    1) depriving the United States of the opportunity to deploy an American military base in Crimea, to control the entire European part of the Russian Federation and the entire Black Sea.
    2) deprived the EU of the opportunity to seize the domestic market of the Russian Federation, transferring Ukraine to the "most favored nation" regime.
    This violated the plans of the United States and the EU for the intensive destruction of the statehood of the Russian Federation, Western sanctions were introduced as punishment for protecting the interests of the country, which they seek to erase from the world map.
    This is the truth and it is necessary to rely on it, predicting the further development of events, for the United States will not abandon its plans for complete control over the Black Sea and the European part of the Russian Federation.
    Among the measures taken in the future include propaganda of the "injustice" of the entry of Crimea into the Russian Federation with all kinds of lies and provocations. Sanctions will not be lifted, only feints on this subject are possible. The United States, as a hegemon, simply needs a military base in Crimea and will use any means to achieve its goals. Crimea-like resort place is not important, it is an important geopolitical bridgehead. In any case, it may belong to a leading global player, a regional country because of the Crimea will only lose its sovereignty. This is what everyone who argues about changing the status of Crimea should understand.

      By organizing a national referendum in Crimea in accordance with international rules and displacing the Armed Forces from the peninsula without firing a shot, it ensured its security:

      Well, not really, the rules require a referendum in Ukraine itself (for example, a referendum in Scotland). Yes, and the shots were .. 2 killed .. (this is in addition to the blockade there with all sorts of flagships, Ochakov’s flooding - well, all according to international rules, in general, smile )
      then a collection of myths where the value of Crimea is ogogo, and more than 90% of the territory of Ukraine is ... dust on the map and the fact that they are closer to the center of the Russian Federation is not scary.
      An article in the style of #Putin Five has done everything right.
      And such a terrible set of stamps, outdated .. and nothing new. The main victory on all fronts, cheers comrades, you can sleep - we won again ..

        Yes, but you are silent about the fact that Comrade Yanukovych was "incorrectly" moved. And to such an extent it was incorrect that he had to hurry strategically to evacuate. Therefore, the issue must be looked at in the context of events. And the events in fact were force majeure. Or I'm wrong? Initially, the Crimea left the structure (if you remember, but I remember) and there was no question.

        Rudeness in the morning speaks of an incorrectly carried sober, possibly even with the use of alcohol-containing liquids.
        The comment says "loyal style." And the Germans wrote so, or the translator tried, I don’t know. The fact is clear.

    The author carefully hangs all the dogs on Trump. All this looks ridiculous and touching, the impression is that negligent children are now leading propaganda. But the impression, of course, is false. This is the level of the current audience - the analysis of the masses is no longer available.
    Trump is to blame, as follows from the article, mainly in the policies pursued by his predecessors. And Putin is that he declared our position and continues to hold on. We thought that he controls our country, but it turns out - this is all the cunning tactics of Merkel! The hacker theft of the election "probably will not be proven." That is, the theft is driven into the wooden heads with nails, despite the fact that nothing will be proved. "It’s your fault that I want to eat!" The level of the article is very low.
    However, our campaigns, regularly appearing on the site, are also no higher than ...

    I listened to some part of Putin’s conversation with the People. Figs with those who tried to adjust the questions in the right way, but the president himself feels that he has passed. Some moments even caused disgust. Although, in general, I relate to Putin so far rather positively than negatively ... Nevertheless, the main problem is not in the president but in those who rule locally ...

    While Putin is silent, everyone is shaking. When Putin speaks, everyone is listening. And the words, as they say, are not at odds with the matter. Here they are listening. Where is Syria-2, the President has not yet said. But assumptions are already being made on other sites.

    In Syria, Russia resolutely sided with Iran on the side of the dictator Assad and now has again turned into one of the decisive forces in the Arab region.

    Why is it so unprofessional and deceitful ??? What Assad-dictator-if he was chosen by the Syrians and the people of Syria? Assad is not a dictator, but the president legitimately elected by the Syrians and people of Syria. The legitimate and legitimate ruler of Syria. But not a dictator.
    That's why such a lie and a lie to write?

      Yanukovych, no? After all, it was also declared a “dictator” and overthrown by the “impoverished” people during the reign of the “dictator”. Now skaklov has a complete "rethinking."
      "Peremoga" in Russian sounds like "endure" - the whole piss of the Skaklyak people in a nutshell - "overstate" - endure and "zrada" - secret joy.

    Why do you Russian write a lie ??? Why write about Assad, that he is a dictator ?? Do you already believe the lies of Western slander that you subscribe to their words? That is, you are already playing under their tune.
