The golden loaf of Yanukovych is childish nonsense, against the backdrop of the achievements of American generals and the military-industrial complex of the most advanced power of the planet. The Russian General Staff is horrified by the realization that "we do not have to live like this".
To immediately dot the "E" and stop the crying of Yaroslavna over the flying squadrons of squadrons of "golden loaves", the statistics of Transparency International, the belief in which is absolute and infallible:
The US at 18 place with the index of corruption perceptions 74, and "unwashed Russia" as much as 131 with 29 points. I do not even want to say with whom she shares this shameful place, so everything is bad with corruption. But in the US everything is just fine. This is confirmed by the most authoritative institution in the world, engaged in public opinion polls:
CNN correspondent Drew Griffith рассказал that 78 senators have officially registered lobbyists among family members:
“There are hundreds of such lobbyists, and, according to the Legistorm organization’s follow-up to the Congress, the total amount of their lobbying contracts is 2 billion dollars. Russians are well acquainted with simple bribes - envelopes with money, etc. We in the USA specialize in “soft bribes” - you care for the relatives of the legislator, and the legislator cares for you. ”
Now do you understand how everything is bad for us? Even the Yankees write about it. And here are concrete examples of what all underdeveloped regional gas stations should strive for.
To the gas station American. Built at least in Afghanistan. Head of the General Inspectorate of the American Office for the Reconstruction of Afghanistan reported that 43 million was spent between 2011 and 2014 over the years for the erection and maintenance of fueling - according to official financial documents. The original price turnkey-500 thousands!
But this is a small gesheft of some captain. Colonels earn other money. The famous USAID in the same Afghanistan mastered billions. In 2006, funding of 1,4 billion US dollars was started for a period of 5 years. In 2010, the special commissioner stated that most of the money was stolen, and some are invested in projects that Afghanistan can not exploit.
But there is also the generals in the Pentagon, who also wants to eat black caviar with spoons and, due to age, also feed grandchildren. Well, the senators above are already mentioned. For them, too, there are projects that are not measured by pathetic billions of lobbyists.
Here, too, everything is simple. In the spring of this year, Amnesty International published information that the US Armed Forces somehow lost in Iraq weapons over a billion dollars. With this money you can build an aircraft carrier!
However, to blame, the error came out. Already can not. A dozen nuclear-built aircraft carriers of the Nimitz type at the expense of wholesale cost only for 4,5 - 6,2 billion apiece. The truth here is not taken into account the cost of repairs, accidents and other indecencies, because of which the dollars literally drain into the toilet. In all 423 toilet bowl. That is how many of them have the last in the Bush aircraft carrier series. History he doesn’t say how much it cost to re-equip the battalion of latrines into vacuum toilet bowls, but the money was washed away forever - regularly all 5680 crew members and aircraft wings run to the leeward deck.
But even this is a bad smell, but still a story. Much more interesting is the next series of aircraft carriers Gerald R. Ford, laid in the far now 2005 year (cut off the first piece of the future building) as a modernized "Nimitsy." "Fords" had to be cheaper to operate due to more automation and a smaller crew. But this mythical economy has so far led to the opposite result.
This year he (in 12 years!) Was introduced fleetbut to the already spent 12,8 billion dollars, another 4,7 billion R&D expenses and a couple billion to bring the new Ford to mind should be added - not everything on the supermodern ship works as it should, but something does not work basically. Again, it is necessary to solve something with space toilets so that the crew does not fly out into the vacuum. It is believed that the Ford will be fully operational only in 2020. This is a success! From 12 to 15 years of work and almost 20 billion dollars !!
Compare with the price of "Bush" in 6,2 billion. Even without R & D and future spending, the new Ford is more than twice as expensive!
And now in the Pentagon "they scratch their turnips" and think about how not to confine themselves to an aircraft carrier in the series. Not from a great desire to fight corruption, they just realistically understand that "Bolivar will not endure two." Not to mention the ten necessary. A project is necessary in all senses.
On research Watson Institute for International Studies, Brown University, 2013, the United States spent more than 4 trillions of dollars on the war in Iraq and Afghanistan alone. Soon the costs of the current wars and related expenses will be calculated - payments for old obligations, expenses for people with disabilities and other things, spending of the defense budget, which Donald Trump is about to sign.
And involuntarily pity is the state of corruption in Russia. Lagging behind the United States in this hopeless race, instead of the handsome aircraft carrier, they are forced to adopt the cheap and primitive hypersonic Zircon rocket, which in a matter of seconds can put 20 billions of US taxpayers to the bottom. And 5 thousands of taxpayers themselves.
This is the reason for the extremely negative attitude of the advanced powers in relation to corruption to Russia, which is underdeveloped in this sense.
