"The USSR in such a diplomatic conflict with the United States did not give offense"

"The USSR in such a diplomatic conflict with the United States did not give offense"



A diplomatic scandal continues between the United States and Russia, which could escalate into a diplomatic war. The recent searches of the American side in the Russian consulate in San Francisco have called the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation a "hellish clownery" as well as an "unprecedented, aggressive action." US charges denied, insisting on "arrangements."

At the same time, it becomes clear that this is a response from the United States to the “proposal to send” hundreds of American diplomatic staff from Russia, and it probably came as a pretty strong blow, on the basis that something was urgently burned at the consulate. Will our country be able to answer now? It was necessary to answer in 2016, but now the USSR’s experience will have to be repeated, the USSR people's deputy (1989-1991), ex-deputy of the State Duma of the Russian Federation, retired Air Force Colonel Viktor Alksnis is sure. He told about this in a conversation with Nakanune.RU.

Question: Can this conflict grow into a diplomatic war, in your opinion?

Viktor Alksnis: Already, the situation has shifted from a diplomatic conflict to a situation of diplomatic war. It is sad to admit, but, in fact, we have unleashed this diplomatic war. This is due to the biggest mistake in our relations with the United States. As it is known, one of the most important principles of diplomacy is the principle of reciprocity, mirroring - if one country performs some actions that damage the other country, the other country takes mirror response measures.

But our leadership in this situation decided to abandon this principle and go its own way. As a result, the United States, in fact, beat us.

Question: When did this happen?

Victor Alksnis: This conflict could end as early as December last year if our side mirrored the expulsion of our diplomats in the number of 35 people and the arrest of our diplomatic property in the United States. But, expecting, apparently, that Donald Trump will soon be in power and that our countries will have excellent relations, the Kremlin decided to pretend that nothing serious had happened and not to respond in the same way.

But, unfortunately, the situation with Trump's arrival has not improved. And then our management decided to answer - but to answer not in the mirror, sending 35 diplomats and arresting several objects, and go the other way. It was decided to equalize the number of American diplomats. And this already goes beyond the principle of reciprocity. Americans know this very well - then they used this error.

It would seem fair - if there are some of our diplomats in the United States, then the United States should have the same number in our country. Then the United States requires - close one consulate and bring the number of consulates to the number of American ones. After all, they have three in Russia, and we have four consulates in America. And now we have nothing to answer.



Question: Are extreme measures possible - a break in diplomatic relations?

Viktor Alksnis: Breaking Diplomatic Relations? It is unlikely that this will go, and it is hardly necessary.

Question: Then what could be the answer?

Victor Alksnis: There is a way out of this situation, and it is quite serious - 1948’s experience must be repeated. Diplomatic conflicts occur constantly and in most cases end up with one side taking some action, the other side taking the same — the conflict is exhausted. But here the situation is completely different.

Our position is much more serious than that of the United States, in the sense that we have, in fact, no way to really answer this. To do this, one must show political will and respond in such a way that the Americans understand that further stirring up of this conflict will not lead to anything good.



In 1948, three years after the war, when our country was in a very difficult economic situation, half of the country was in ruins, we did not have a nuclear weapons at that time - nevertheless, the Soviet Union in a similar situation took rather tough measures.

In August of 1948, we began to reduce the number of our diplomatic staff in the United States, because relations were deteriorating every day, including because of the crisis in Berlin. And it was decided to reduce the number of our diplomats, to close the school at the US Embassy, ​​and to return teachers and schoolchildren back to the Soviet Union. It turned out that the director of this school and their family refused to return to the Soviet Union and appealed to the American authorities for political asylum.

At the same time, the school teacher Oksana Kasenkina disappeared. The Americans said that she allegedly also sought asylum in the United States, but at the same time her letter was received by the Soviet consulate, in which she wrote that she wanted to return home. It became known that this teacher was on the territory of a public organization that had been created by the White Guards, where refugees from the Soviet Union lived. Our consul went there, to this organization, managed to meet with her, she confirmed that she was there not against her will, that she was, in fact, kidnapped. Accordingly, she confirmed her desire to return to the territory of the Soviet Union.

They arrived on the territory of our consulate, an urgent press conference was held at which she was represented. There she confirmed that she wanted to return to the Soviet Union, her letter was shown. It would seem that the question was settled, but the United States went to a dramatic aggravation of the situation, it was stated that Soviet diplomats had abducted this teacher, the American court decided to question her at the court about whether she voluntarily wanted to return to the USSR.

And then something incomprehensible happened: according to our side, representatives of the American special services entered the consulate building and were simply taken away from there by force; according to the American side, she allegedly jumped from the third floor, wanted to escape. After that, the Americans accused our Consul General of having kidnapped a person in the United States and expelled him. There is a record in the memoirs of the then American ambassador to the USSR that at one o'clock the then foreign minister of the USSR, Molotov, summoned him, a very difficult conversation took place, during which Molotov accused the American side of rude political provocation.

Afterwards, he read out to him a note in which it is said that the Soviet government closes two consulates located in the USA — in New York and San Francisco (the one around which all the hype is now) —and demands from the American side to close the only consulate in the USSR in Vladivostok. Plus, the Soviet side breaks the agreement reached with the United States on opening another consulate in the United States in Leningrad. This is what happened. And before 1972, there was no consular relations between the United States and the Soviet Union. They were resumed only in the early 1970's. in the period of "discharge".



Question: So we should also end consular relations?

Victor Alksnis: Obviously, yes, we have no choice but to repeat our Soviet experience and stop consular relations. We need to officially declare the termination of the activities of our three consulates in the United States and to demand from the American side that all consulates in Russia be terminated. I don’t see any other way out of this situation, because if we go the other way, it will again be a violation of the principle of reciprocity, it will again be the US claims and some new measures.

And here the whole situation will be brought to its original position, that is, we close the consular relations, but we respond according to the principle of reciprocity.

      First, for today we need to understand, including experts, that comparing the USSR with Russia is not correct! Especially since the USSR after World War II, when, as Marshal Konev put it, we had an army "capable of storming the sky"! Therefore, a balanced foreign policy of GDP is correct - we need time to reach the same level with the Western powers. Secondly, all this American fuss is, in fact, a sign that they themselves do not know what they should do with Russia now! They still lived in a world of illusions, as under Yeltsin, saying their own manual prez, but they were told in Munich in 2007, guys, don’t hound! They did not hear this and fell into the trap of their own megalomania ... Therefore, I repeat, the GDP is right, not exacerbating events, but simply throwing a problem after a problem at the Americans! Crimea, Donbass, Syria, and their own different position on the DPRK, plus it worked well with the Turks, the leading European power in the army plan in NATO, good relations with China and India ... The Americans lost their strategic initiative, so they beat dishes from the kitchen despair! laughing

        Yes, in the USSR, state leaders did not keep their savings and capital in the West, in the USA, their families did not live there with households, as they are now in Russia, and therefore they were personally independent.
        And now the ruling "elite" is completely personally dependent on the West, where their fundamental, "overwork" acquired interests are.

      Well, if they wrote that, then specifically what is pragmatism? that besides external noise and window dress who is the boss in the us, is it too late to talk about the world? we can answer absolutely adequately, but who will win by closing the consulates? In this case, not Russia. to reduce their service by 155 people with the seizure of property by the amount seized (or in proportion) is the answer of a worthy equal partner.

Well, the consulate was closed at our request, then what? - what is the answer to today's realities? We live in 2017, not 1948. Now we can show how hysterical and powerless the United States is in matters of diplomacy in their exceptional theory. what we will have when closing consulates. to write telegrams? stupidity. diplomacy serves to show the world its worldview and strength, and what will we achieve by closing the consulates? how will cube wait for better times? or start to shoot missiles like that?

              Consulate and embassy - services are different functionally. The consulate is more concerned with the "household" issues of our citizens abroad, and the embassy represents the political interests of the country. So this does not provide for the recall of the ambassador.
              By the way, why closed the comments on the post "Israel is preparing an invasion of Syria?"

With whom and with what will they meet the election of our president? This is not just a powerful blow, it is the collapse of all strategy and tactics. But then you need to completely mirror.

      Here are just checking the number of banned.
      It is estimated that the number of United States (diplomatic representatives) in Russia is now up to 1200 pieces.

    Yes, in the USSR, state leaders did not keep their savings and capital in the West, in the USA, their families did not live there with households, as they are now in Russia, and therefore they were personally independent.
    And now the ruling "elite" is completely personally dependent on the West, where their fundamental, "overwork" acquired interests are.
    And what do you want from them? To step on your own "Faberge"? Yes, this will not happen.

    But this did not stop them from selling to the US elites for money. Mb, that they had no money and served as their betrayal?

    The Soviet Union was an independent state with an independent economy, all the money was kept in their homeland ...
    Compare with what we have at the moment. I admit absolutely not sure that we will retaliate in the event of a nuclear strike against us. Do you think this elite will kill its children living in the US and Europe and will destroy banks where it stores its savings?

    The weak are not only beaten, but also humiliated. This story has nothing to do with diplomacy.

    The article is not correct. The author of the article finally puts Russia in the position of zugzwang (compulsion to move). Our move should be extremely extraordinary, confounding Western analysts.

      the Foreign Ministry’s moves should be transparent and understandable if the country is sovereign then mirrored if not, then it’s possible to wipe silently and like we don’t see anything humiliating. but the moves of the General Staff should confuse the enemy. it is extraordinary moves that lead to zugzwang.

    One of the sober and correct understanding of reality good and even a little was fed up with the prolonged hysterical cries of nutritious idiots of all stripes: "wiped off, give in the face, money and children over the hill", these defective degraders don’t bear only paranoid garbage, how many polymers have been laid over since the crisis in Ukraine and Syria, buried ten times. Yesterday, Putin and the oligarchs have their industry, the army, Russia collapses every year, and today, according to their well-groomed logic, a ruined Russia must answer, and I would like to ask what and if? These cretiks would decide at the end of something, either remove the cross or put on their underpants. Db fool

      Well, if the olergachic blot knows in advance the time of the strike, it can and will run to the money. but all events confirm the opposite, in the West and the United States there is someone to put a hand to them. so either you have to fight now, or the western savings were crying.

    Since there is a stalemate situation, it must be resolved as soon as possible. The solution is real and tested, it’s enough to just show your will and declare to the Americans: “We are not getting diplomatic relations with you, let's cover everything and start negotiating again.” Under this brand, all their public institutions and human rights organizations from Russia can breathe. And do not say that we are weak, that we need to catch up with someone - this is not economics, but politics.
