It is better to trade with Russia than to fight



... unexpectedly for all, Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite said, assessing the future of Russian-Lithuanian relations. And thus caused the widest resonance in the media, which immediately alerted its audience about the "change of orientation" of Lithuania in its perception of Russia. But is it really? Were the media in no hurry to make conclusions, after all, let me remind you, it’s about Lithuania - the republic that criticizes Russia the most consistently and harshly of all the Baltic countries. Or, perhaps, the journalists have forgotten how the same Grybauskaite called Russia "the fiend of hell" and the "terrorist state"?

As for me, this is not a change of orientation, but only a slight change in rhetoric to please, but rather under the pressure of the recent economic changes in the region (and in the world as a whole). In fact, all the recent statements by Ms. Grybauskaite can be generally described as extremely pragmatic. This is a kind of attempt to win back, to try to catch up at the times when political considerations took over economic gain. For example, from the first Nord Stream, Vilnius, unlike those who supported its construction at that time, does not receive a cent. It also does not have any income from oil and gas transit, because at one time, again, for political reasons, he repeatedly refused to lay a "pipe" over its territory.

It is good that the economy of Lithuania is still supported from the European treasury, but it will not continue forever. In fact, today we can talk about light at the end of the tunnel: very soon Europe will no longer feed the Baltic States, and then ... But should we wait for this “then”, they thought in Vilnius and ... stopped noticing the “harmful” component of the Nord Stream- 2 ". In particular, during the recent meeting of the Prime Ministers of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia in Tallinn, a statement was made that the project "if implemented, must fully comply with EU laws and the principles of the Energy Union". And yet, no mention of the threat to the security of Europe, on which Vilnius had always insisted.

I repeat, in my opinion, this is only about the realization of the obvious, about the awakened feeling and instinct of self-preservation before a quite possible future economic catastrophe, no change of course towards Russia here and does not smell. After all, Mrs. Lithuanian President especially focuses on the conditions under which cooperation between Vilnius and Moscow is possible, and this is attention, Russia's refusal from the “occupied” territories, which Lithuania considers Crimea and South Ossetia, to stop bribing politicians and interfering with elections in other countries, refusing to force their own interests.

Is this a real requirement ?! No, of course, that’s why all the talk about a "turnaround" towards Russia is at least premature. At best, we can talk about some signals that indicate the possibility of dialogue in the future. Vilnius understands perfectly well that Russia can safely do without Lithuania and the Baltics as a whole, whereas the latter is unlikely without economic cooperation with the Russian Federation. The question is how to combine one with the other and not lose face. I believe that all of the above is some such attempt to find a way out. And I would also consider the recent demarcation of the Russian-Lithuanian border in the same context.

        I completely agree. They do not yet believe that they are being removed from allowance. Although, maybe the Baltic states are right. They really have a geographic location to attack our country. So it is likely that they will still throw another piece to them.
        Here are just an experiment with a “land carrier” when the United States inflated Japan economically, and yesterday it would seem an inflatable ball, a frivolous ball almost bought the inflators themselves (and the Japanese had to arrange an economic hara-kiri, which hit the United States painfully) will not be repeated.
        Limitrophs should barely stand on their feet, staggering from hunger. Then handouts can be thrown insignificant, and no risk. The United States is now mirroring our new (but very wise) proverb: Friends do not need to have friends with friends. Well, the Americans have. With violence and in a perverse form ...

        It just understands that transit deliberately runs out, but more fin. flows from the Russian Federation are not expected. Belarusians will also be given, one way or another, preferences for export through Russian ports. With a liquefied gas mini-hub flew by. And you need to live. But for the opportunity to eat, you need to work out, and not talk about "commitment and readiness." Questions: 1) READY-WILL 2) LET IT ALLOW?

      It is necessary and still necessary, so that later there is something to twitch when the leash is released and the “dog” begins to behave improperly. they don’t understand other words, only on a hard leash and no democracy. But again, trade on our extremely harsh conditions in our direction and +1 in them.

      Why only Lithuania ?? !! All goods !! Only import substitution, only Lada and disk phones !! I’m serious, while they themselves did everything, they were great, as they began to trade, they are a kapets to the country. Only the iron curtain and coupons in the "Birch", otherwise we can not survive !!!!

      They will always be fed. And they will always feed tasty enough. In the same way, Russia would feed any small country near the United States, if there were Russian missiles. Well, and Dahl ... - what difference does she say.

    .. "In Vilnius, they perfectly understand that Russia can easily do without Lithuania and without the Baltic states as a whole, while the latter is unlikely without economic interaction with the Russian Federation." ..

    Here, a little wrong, though. Lithuania, just the same, calmly (if it does not do the next nonsense) will be able to "cut coupons" from transit from Greater Russia to Kaliningrad. And here, proud Chukhons and Latvians, in flight (a feather in their ass)

      In one transit, the whole country will not survive. Our government would have preoccupied and given preferences to Belarusians to transfer their cargo from the Baltic ports to ours. There will be no losses from this, as our enterprises will be loaded.

    No, the doctor said - to the morgue, then - to the morgue! The only option is to give the automobile and railway corridor to Kaliningrad. So, approximately, the width of kilometers 300. And without the local population, so that they would not have to be shot back through the forests.
