    Off-topic news: the United States intends to send its peacekeeping contingent to the border of Russia and Donbass. This was stated by the official representative of the State Department, Heather Nauert. This is kooky.

      Wanting is not harmful, but nothing good will come of it.

      Labuden is ... When placing a contingent, in addition to the UN mandate, warranties of the warring parties are necessary to ensure the security of the peacekeeping contingent. If dill play up mattresses, then LDNR is unlikely. Of course, the "wise" will insist that Russia guarantee security, but we are not a party to the conflict and it is also unlikely that we will subscribe to this initiative. this will entail recognition of our participation in the conflict. Do we need it?

    Good tidings! The base, almost forever given to Russia. It can be considered that - this is complete control over the Mediterranean Sea and almost all of Central Asia. good

      No almost forever, and while the pro-Russian leadership was in power. So for Assad, naval base of Tartus (and VVB Khmeimim) is not as profitable as it is for us. smile

            why then with a smile. I wrote about two years ago that the GDP at the meeting of the security forces said so that we would not give Syria up to joining the Russian Federation.

    Great news, every Great Power should have bases (allies) around the World. Of course, we are not quite, Great, but we must strive for this.

    Good news.
    The main thing is that some new “Gorbachev" or "Yeltsin"
    did not come to power. And then, again, they will destroy everything ..
