Putin's geopolitical genius: We are in the Mediterranean

Russian President Vladimir Putin met in the Kremlin with Russian military personnel who were particularly distinguished in the Syrian conflict. All of them received state awards. Putin stressed that the whole country was following the operation in Syria, while the military itself felt the sincere support of all Russian citizens.

The head of state compared the Syrian war with the 19 and 20 wars of centuries and said that, like in the past, the Russian army had fought back barbarians, freeing millions of people from oppression.

President Putin said that in spite of the order to begin withdrawing troops from Syria, the country remains a self-sufficient grouping that will be able to protect the interests of Russia in this country. At the same time, the logistics center in Tartus will be substantially expanded and will become a full-fledged base of the Russian Navy. It will become a guarantor in ensuring the security of Russia in one of the key areas.

    ... with the Russian military ... All of them received state awards. Well, it’s good that those who participated directly did not regret the awards.

    In general, the Soviet Union was still in the Mediterranean Sea ... So what is the present genius?

      It is likely that he left Vietnam, Mongolia and Cuba, and at the same time wrote off tens of billions of dollars of debt ... Brilliant !!!

      The genius of today is that it did not allow the States to play their own game ... And most importantly - the economic one. Preserving the regime of B. Assad, he did not allow Qatar, Saudi Arabia to extend its pipe to Europe and thereby put an end to the exclusive position of Gazprom in this region. Again, oil prices buried the Yankees shale fantasies. And if Gazprom collapsed, then we wouldn’t have to talk about any development strategy today, nor about re-equipment, salaries for teachers and doctors, a pension for old people ...

      It was so. Only now for 49 years and you do not need to pay millions of dollars every year. (They have already been paid during the anti-terrorist operation of the airborne forces and the military contingent in the SAR. But at the same time, we tested 145 models of new equipment and weapons, gave practical experience in planning and conducting modern military and logistic operations ...)
      And so, (of course, who argues, - from the sofa it is much more visible!) Nothing gen - al but - NO!
      Long live your liberoid views, colleague! HOORAY !!! laughing

        A look of wretched and near! The stronger the positions on gas and oil, the stronger the power of bribe takers and thieves! The more chaos in relation to ordinary people. The less opportunities for the restoration of a normal economy. Also an expert was found :)

      It may be that the Soviet Union ceased to exist and, accordingly, almost all positions in the world were lost ... Modern Russia is restoring everything from scratch. And then how this is done is truly ingenious.

        genius will trample ONLY AFTER 10-20 YEARS-when Syrian children will be the second or third to learn Russian.
        in the meantime, as the paper on the bases was signed, the new rulers of the SAR will tear it.
        still to come. we are only investing money, sweat and blood in a future rooted presence in the Mediterranean (eastern only).
