Project "ZZ". With the Russian kings need to get tough!

131
Donald Trump pointed to his intransigently tough position on Russia. Like, he's not some Obama there. The hard-hitting trump was spoken by press secretary Sarah Sanders, who told the world that her boss in the White House treated Russia "much tougher" than Mr. Obama did in all eight years of government. Trump and his team do not take the current Russia under any sauce, and therefore they arm Ukraine and fill weapons European NATO states. Western analysts explain the hard line by the fact that the “tsar” rules in Russia, and the current Russian era is even darker than the era of the Politburo of the CPSU Central Committee - at that time decisions were made collectively.



Vladimir Putin, February 2018


The President of the United States, in his outrageous style, walked around Obama and his former administration and said that he himself, Trump, was taking a much tougher stance towards Moscow. Trump reported this to the world through Twitter.

According to Mr. Trump, Obama "thought that dishonest Hillary was going to win, and he [Obama] did not want to rock the boat." However, it turned out that the electors "easily won" Trump. And then "the whole game has changed," and the Democrats began to justify themselves "Russian."

A few days earlier, Mr. Trump accused his predecessor Barack Obama of not preventing "Russian interference" in the elections. The mention of such an intervention is probably related to the latest scandal in the United States, when the Justice Ministry and the jury recognized twelve Petersburg trolls, as well as restaurateur Prigogine, by the very persons who carried out the “intervention”.

Not only President Trump declared toughness against Russia. His official spokeswoman, Sarah Sanders, developed the topic on the same day at a briefing at the White House.

"In his first year [as president], he [Donald Trump] showed himself much more harshly towards Russia than Obama during all his eight years," the channel quoted Sarah Huckabi Sanders. "CBS".

The channel mentions in this connection the high-profile case of “thirteen Russian citizens”, which, along with three organizations (including the Petersburg “trolley factory”), were blamed by special prosecutor Robert Muller. All thirteen defendants were accused of “intervening in elections” in 2016 and in conducting “information war against the United States” (quoted by Deputy Attorney General R. Rosenstein).

At the same time, it is noted in the material, President Trump “ambiguously” criticizes Russia and its President Vladimir Putin. For example, the other day he “attacked” Mr. McMaster, his own national security adviser, who told the public about Russia's intervention at the global security conference in Munich.

"The evidence is irrefutable," said McMaster. And Mr. Trump said later that Mr. McMaster "forgot to say that the results of the 2016 election of the year were neither affected nor changed."

Sarah Sanders also said that Mr. Trump does show a tougher approach to Russia than Mr. Obama: after all, Trump supported the sanctions imposed by President Obama, and also signed legislation requiring the introduction of new sanctions. True, these sanctions have not yet been introduced.

Some foreign analysts explain the hard line with respect to Moscow by the fact that the “tsar” rules in Russia. The current epoch in Russia is even darker than the Soviet epoch of the Politburo of the Central Committee of the CPSU — at that time decisions were at least taken collectively. Now, only Putin decides everything.


Yuri Andropov, the beginning of 1984


On the subject of the new Russian tsar, Michael Thumann argues in the influential German newspaper «Die Zeit». His material begins with a promising phrase: “Das russische Reich hat wieder einen Zaren” (“The Tsar is Again in the Russian Empire”). His empire is television. “Tsar” managed to completely disable collective thinking in the empire. Such is the “Putin system”.

Not so long ago, Putin declared the collapse of the Soviet Union the largest geopolitical catastrophe of the twentieth century. But after all, the USSR (the Country of Soviets!) Is inherently completely alien to the one-man Putin. Putin rules Russia not at all as a Soviet leader.

Michael Tumann recalls that under the "dictatorship of the proletariat" the carrier of powerful collective thinking was the Politburo. That is not one person. The Politburo included people who were not elected by the people, but who made decisions collectively.

Not at all mister Putin. This ruler depicts electoral "democracy" in the country, and in the meantime "rules alone". According to Tuman, Putin even "avoids the Kremlin." Behind the walls of red brick, he just made the scenery for receptions on the occasion of the arrival of foreigners. He prefers to hold personal meetings in Novo-Ogarevo and in the Konstantinovsky Palace near St. Petersburg. "Sochi palaces" are also suitable for this.

Minutes of the meetings are not kept, Putin prefers an informal atmosphere, and he likes to announce decisions himself, continues the journalist.

In the USSR, it was different. Then there were the Politburo and the Committee itself, the Central Committee of the CPSU. For these party institutions, the protocols were mandatory red tape. After Stalin’s death, Soviet leaders gathered at meetings of the Presidium, which consisted of twenty-five people. They were appointed by the Central Committee. Later, the Russians returned to the form of meetings not of the Presidium, but of the Politburo. What is important here is not these formal changes, but the essence: decisions were made collectively at that time. And after Stalin, and after Khrushchev, the “triumvirate of functionaries” rules in the Union, writes Tuman. It was a series of "equal leaders" in some way. And later, when Brezhnev reigned, power in the Union was concentrated in his hands: he had more power than the chairman of the Presidium of the USSR Supreme Soviet Podgorny or the head of the government Kosygin.


Brezhnev and Kosygin, 1976


But even Leonid Brezhnev did not rule alone. In foreign policy, the most important decisions were made, for example, by an experienced minister, Andrei Gromyko. In addition, Brezhnev constantly hesitated between different forces in the party and the government and made decisions not one but in the circle of members of the Politburo, as well as his advisers. An example of a collective decision is the decision of 1979 of the year to introduce a limited contingent of Soviet troops in Afghanistan.

But the “decision to annex the Crimea,” the German author further reports, was taken personally by Putin.

The Russian president generally loves to show his “determination”: then he “pacifies” the oligarch, then “makes a suggestion” to the bureaucrat — and all this, of course, in front of the television cameras. Russian television regularly shows this. And in this, Tuman believes, Mr Putin leaves the Soviet canon and resorts to the imperial tradition. He portrays himself as a "good king", concerned about the welfare of the people. It is he, Putin, who puts the presumptuous "bad boyars" in place.

It’s funny that the favorite front of activity for Putin is not foreign policy, but foreign policy. Putin, the journalist points out, wants to be judged by decisions not internal, but external. There is, of course, Minister Lavrov, but he is only a “good performer” of Putin’s policy. This is not a man like Gromyko, who knew how to "bend his line." And therefore, in foreign policy with respect to, say, the United States, Europe, China or Ukraine, everything depends “on one Putin.” As for domestic politics, he is “bored” in it, the author mocks. And, as a former political adviser to Putin, political analyst Gleb Pavlovsky, correctly notes, the crisis in the country, the economy, budget problems — all this is not interesting for the president. Putin “in case of something” should always have the opportunity to inform the people: they say, I “did not know about anything like that”. That is why in Russia the necessary reforms are not carried out.

Finally, there is no ideology behind Putin. In the Soviet Union, the personality of the leader meant far from everything: the CPSU and the ideology of Marxism-Leninism existed. Both the party and the ideology experienced the personality cult of Stalin. Already later, after Khrushchev, the Central Committee and the Politburo built a structure that prevented the adoption of early political decisions. And as a result, the USSR over the past three decades of its stories became predictable, including in foreign policy, as evidenced by international treaties.

But Putin, according to Tuman, is moving "in the opposite direction." State institutions in Russia lack meaningfulness: they are emasculated and, in fact, replaced by “personal relationships.” Does anyone consider the Russian Duma a real parliament? And what is United Russia, if not a one-day firm? And where is the ideology? Instead of Marxism-Leninism, now only loyalty to Putin: it seems like “there is no alternative to Putin”. As a result, the country has reached the point that if Putin’s few days are not shown on TV, “everyone is starting to worry.” Not so much for the “missing” president, but for the country itself!

* * *


That is why the West is pursuing a “hard line” against Russia. It turns out that it is not Mr. Trump who is considered unpredictable, but Putin, who likes to make decisions alone, without protocols, extra witnesses and in special rooms. If during the Cold War, the United States and Western Europe learned how to conduct diplomacy with the Russians, then under Putin, this skill somehow absorbed itself in history.

The “hard” line, from which the United States will not retreat, is explained by the fact that Western experts and politicians, including the militarist Trump, have no doubt: for the next six years, the Tsar will rule Russia again. Obviously, he will next appoint a successor - after all, this is the custom of the current kings.

With such an unpleasant Russian behavior, Washington remains only a monotonous harsh reaction. And this means that the United States and the European Union do not have an exact, appropriate strategy for contemporary Russia. This can be proved by the fact that Trump with respect to Russia as a whole is copying Obama’s policy - the policy of endless sanctions, conflict diplomacy and the armament of Europe. Scolding and calling Obama and members of his team, Trump does exactly the same thing in foreign policy.

        Ta wi sho? Straight Russia one to one USA? In Afghanistan, our soldiers not only brought REAL order, but also built infrastructure. They built hospitals, schools, tunnels, roads. What did the USA build in Afghanistan?
        US policy has always been one, invade and rob! And Russia's policy will be “invaded" and built up, moreover at its own expense, and then also to forgive debts. To whom have Americans forgiven debt at least once? And this applies not only to the Americans, but to the entire so-called "collective West." So there is nothing to compare) I (opu with a finger, you are our pro-American. negative

            Learn Russian
            First, for yourself, learn to write in Russian yourself!
            Secondly, if it is bad with humor, then this is not treated.
            Thirdly, you write, and I write.
            Fourth, I didn’t drink with Brudershaft and didn’t switch to “YOU”. However, one cannot expect a high level of culture from a clear pro-American troll.
            The policy of Russia is to send young children to death and then run away from there.
            Where to run from? If you are talking about Afghanistan, then no one has escaped from there, do not lie. Was the withdrawal of troops carried out or did we have to sit there before the seventh flood?
            Die and leave ...
            Are you "dying"? I strongly doubt that you even served in the army, warrior damn it.
            Oh yes, I forgot, we will forgive everyone all the debts. Awesome interests of Russia, right?
            But what, the interests of Russia should consist only in robbing another people, as your overseas masters do? This is what distinguishes Russia from the West in that it comes not to rob, but to help. However, for you, the main value is to rob someone, then gobble up this loot and, as a result, either gobble up the bullet, or get offended.
            Tell us better in numbers, how the well-being of the Russian people increased after our “real order”. NO.
            A truly Russian person, among the values ​​in the first place, is the desire to help others, rather than enrich themselves at the expense of others. This is your desire to fill your stomach at the expense of another, is a value and the first thing. This is the difference between us and you.
            This is a truly unique country.
            The country is really unique, since such an abomination as you still lives in the world and crap in this country!
            Maybe you should go with a gun to Syria already, you’re unique ... and die heroically for the Syrians
            It will be necessary, I’ll go, while no one has called.
            I would have missed a glass for this.
            Well, alcoholism is no longer curable.

            “what our soldiers did with captured spirits — and how they threw them down from the turntables,” dear about this phrase, “threw from the turntables,” if you took part in the database, you probably know “Remember?” that war is dirty , and those who threw off probably had a good reason, in Chechnya I also saw such “numbers”, but once again I repeat “from Balda and entertainers” no one does this, it means it was necessary, or they did this before their Comrade, that fly away from 200 meters from the board, this is just a little.

          Well, offhand I can say that right now the Afghan company in the United States brought electrification in the country from 4 to 12%, repaired and built about 12000 schools, but I can’t say for sure, the data from the Latvian website, when there was a freeze, the number of girls in schools increased from 8k to 350k.may have something else, but I didn’t look very hard. And most of the construction projects in the USSR fell on the period before the Afghan company. It’s not worth it to wishful thinking.

            Did they tell you this on Rain? Or did he come up with it? Ah ha ha ... And how many times poppy crops and heroin production increased did not say there ??? But they didn’t tell you about the fact that the United States grows terrorists there, educates them and protects them there ??? So you (and people like you) do not need to know this ...

          6 March 2009 year Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in Geneva gave a symbolic start to a reset of relations between Moscow and Washington, worsened in eight years previous board republican US administration. Hillary Clinton at the beginning of the first bilateral meeting with the Russian Minister gave Lavrov big red button as a symbol of the desire of the American administration to produce reboot relations between Washington and Moscow. True, then a funny thing happened, because, as it turned out, the button was written in English "reset", and in Russian - "overload". "You are mistaken, - Lavrov told the US Secretary of State. - Here it was necessary to write "reboot", and you used a completely different word. " Clinton laughed and promised that she would try to prevent "overload" in Russian-American relations.
          Interesting scheme: 8 years old right "republican", hand uncle Sam presses, then left democratically offers "friendship", luring the last "allies" of Russia. And another change of hand. No wonder they say - "God save us from such friends, but we can handle the enemies ourselves." For Russia, such a “left” friendship has always come out sideways. An open, aggressive attack by an adversary has always led to "consolidation" and moral "mobilization" Russia.

      The United States has the so-called "deep state."
      This state has no representation, but has real power.

      At the moment, we are witnessing the struggle of the US state for sovereignty against this deep state.

      Based on the foregoing. US Foreign Policy is not subordinate to the US State.
      Nevertheless, the US state is fully responsible for its foreign policy processes.

      What to do with it? Watch and wait. Help the weak continue to look.

        In recent years, before Trump, the US president was set by the financial elite, and controlled through it the Pentagon. The peculiarity of the current situation is that Trump seems to be a Pentagon creature, who thus seized control levers from financiers and turns into a powerful independent player in American (and therefore world) politics. And the blow by the Tomahawks to Syria, it was more of a political blow to the US financial elite (a wave of indignation among congressmen and senators - they say, Solely and ... unanimously!), They say, I can initiate a war with Russia, so it's quiet. And it seems they heard him. So in the US elite, a split is increasingly taking shape: the financiers and the Pentagon. For us neither one nor the other is a gift.

    Some kind of mess in the head of the bourgeoisie. If a country is a parliamentary republic, then decisions are made collectively, and their prime minister expresses them, all the more so when the coalition of different parties is manifested. If a presidential form of government is available, then the president takes decisions individually, as it should be. And how these decisions are prepared, with whom they are being discussed, is already the tenth matter.

              What taxes alone are worth!
              Do you propose to completely cancel them? By the way, in Russia there are still not the biggest taxes, if that.

              In Russia, the majority incomes are not encouraging, and pensioners .....
              On the site, fake patriots shout that the laws in the 90s were written by enemies and the GDP is still struggling with this and will win. But not one enemy in 90 did not think of taking a tax from a greenhouse on a summer cottage, and the current government introduced this tax. So where are the enemies ???

                Let me remind you, liberal woman, that the pension in the 90s was less than $ 20, since you love measuring everything in dollars so much. The salary is also somewhere nearby. Do you have to remind how the population died out at that time (90s), when your beloved critters ruled whom you so longed to return to power? And taxes in Russia are currently the lowest in Europe. So shut your liberal mouth better ...

    And in this, Tumann believes, Mr. Putin is moving away from the Soviet canon and resorting to imperial tradition.

    That is why the necessary reforms are not being carried out in Russia.

    I am somehow wary of the reforms that, in the opinion of Western political scientists and economists, are necessary for Russia.
    And as a result, the USSR over the past three decades of its history has become predictable

    I believe this is one of the reasons for the death of the Union.
    Does anyone consider the Russian Duma to be a real parliament?

    Does anyone consider American democracy a democracy?
    Trump towards Russia as a whole copies Obama's policy - a policy of endless sanctions

Not .., I understand that the average European, American deep down to the stars, Russia and the whole world. What they said on TV or wrote in a newspaper (for literate people) is the ultimate truth. But people, people, without straining the brain, believe in it. Next is a quote from Lavrov. Although, as Dr. Goebbels said: “A lie should be primitive.

      Understand ... Russian people are interested in politics and self-development. No matter what. Against all odds. And why? Yes, because politics periodically comes to our doorstep and discharges trunks in our faces. Here is my Smolensk regularly demolished to the foundations of the next political game. The city was over a thousand years old, and the only historical buildings from the foundations were raised by captured Germans, who planted them in gravel in 41.
      And therefore it is necessary to develop and hope that the neighbors are also growing - we, together with the ranks, stand, shoot from one trench. And the little people there ... First, they always hope to escape. Secondly, they were so convinced that "specially trained people" can decide everything, that they allow themselves to almost completely lose their human appearance. So ruminants ...

    The Germans are most annoying! Americans are understandable, their rudeness has long been predictable, you can converge at a reasonable price for iPhones. But the Germans are our eternal geopolitical enemies. By the way, one can see how ethnic Germans pursue an extremely anti-Russian policy in the United States: the Bush family, for example, was still such a secretary of state Schulz and there are many more who are rooted in the depths of European campaigns for the Germanization of the Slavic tribes led by Barabarossa. For the withdrawal of our troops from Germany, for the betrayal of the millions of victims of the Great Patriotic War 1941-1945. citizens of our country, there can be no forgiveness to those who have implemented all this. Now we are reaping the benefits. It is time to put these Germans in the framework of decency.

    And, as political analyst Gleb Pavlovsky, Putin’s former adviser, rightly notes, the crisis in the country, the economy, budget problems - all this is not interesting for the president. Putin "in which case" should always have the opportunity to inform the people: they say, I didn’t know anything like that.

    "Experts and politicians" of the West are now working in an emergency pre-election frenzy. They need more dirty material to defame Putin and extol the Communist Party of the Russian Federation (from which Grudinin is nominated in collusion with Zyuganov). Since the name of Putin is rinsing in dirty water, opposing the CPSU, it is gradually implied that Grudinin will come, create a State Council, and Russia will again be ruled by a collective. But! The name of Grudinin is never mentioned. Only hints of it. And here it is worth thinking seriously: it is not for nothing that the West slips this dubious figure into the minds of the Russian electorate. It turns out that Grudinin & Zyu sniffed with our "sworn Western partners".
    As a conclusion: an instructive article. One must be careful with Grudinin, in no case trust him and his promises.

    "the jury recognized the twelve Petersburg" trolls ", as well as the restaurateur Prigozhin, as the very people who carried out the" intervention. "
    This refers to interference with the 2016 US presidential election! It has long been clear to everyone that there was no interference, but the commission was created, the money was allocated, the goal was announced, but what about so many actions without results ?! Of course, there is a result! Huge, by American standards. Already 13 people who do not live in the United States and do not vote can affect the election results in this country. So they have everything else - bacteriological weapons in Iraq, chemical weapons in Syria, nuclear weapons in Iran. Maybe it's time to start not paying attention to them? In any case, we will not be good! Oleg, as always, thanks for the article, but the article by Mikhail Tumann that he cited is called "There is one more king in the Russian Empire. His media is television. How Vladimir Putin managed to disconnect the team." For our liberals, it’s just a treasure, not an article "taken from their tongues." True, in it the author represents Putin as a kind of lazy ruler who does not like the Kremlin, not because it just has an official situation, but because it is necessary to work there (in the Kremlin). To be honest, the article is rather vile, although some facts are really facts, and not fake, especially concerning the USSR, only from the point of view of a modern liberal. In short, the article is clearly custom-made, to the need of the ruling class of the EU, but it can be discussed as an informational occasion.

    Judging by the comments on the article, there are a lot of patriots here (on the site). Only here patriotism, if you rely on the definition, moral and political principle, social feeling, the content of which is the love of the homeland and the willingness to sacrifice their interests for its sake. Patriotism implies pride in the achievements and culture of one’s homeland, a desire to preserve its character and cultural characteristics and identification of oneself (a special emotional experience of one’s belonging to the country and one’s citizenship, language, traditions) with other members of one’s people, the desire to protect the interests of the motherland and one’s people. Love for one’s homeland, country, people, affection for one’s place of birth, one’s place of residence.

    Well, now, essentially. I do not see any patriotism in the fact that against my homeland, all the more so peace-loving, other states are embroiled in hostility, without much respect. If earlier the USSR was a worthy rival, and thanks to this rivalry, a man flew to the moon, the Internet appeared, technology developed and science progressed ... Now it’s embarrassing to look at how people dance on the bones of a great industrial and scientific complex in a cassock, absolutely not involved in this progress, but in their depths even despise him and fight with him. Now we cannot be proud of what we are building ourselves, our generation cannot be proud of how our ancestors were proud of the flight of Gagarin, the unmanned flight of the Buran ship, the largest submarine in the world, and many more.

    Why did it happen? Weakness of ideology? The weakness of the economy? Political weakness? No. This is the weakness of the people themselves. Weakness is responsible for one’s future, weakness in supporting one’s aspirations, weakness in responsibility for one’s development. There is no independence, no discipline. And that means there is no law protecting the rights of a citizen, his work, his achievements.

    Today, to be a well-read person, to know the history of a kind and one’s state, to rely on scientific facts, to have a good knowledge of mathematics, physical culture is shameful. To look to the future, to consider various points of view - to be a State Department official. Today, to offer the best alternative and talk about problems in the country, to incline to solve problems, means to be an outcast, to be either a political prisoner or a forced emigrant.

    Officers who must protect the people from bandits either admit to being powerless (nothing depends on me, I do not decide anything), or they themselves become patrons and bandits. Officers, who must first of all protect the constitutional system, protect the interests of their country, not only the military! But both strategic and economic, they become mercenaries and die without a name under the flags of others.

    There have been many examples in the history of Russia when true patriots raised more power than their rulers. So why, when it is time to get up and shake off, all patriots whine like puppies? I am not a man of strong build and not a great mind, but I can’t stand injustice, even from the highest standing mongrel, I quietly wage my struggle for my homeland. It’s not difficult, it can even be me - no one is a citizen, but who are you?

    But even Leonid Brezhnev did not rule alone. In foreign policy, the most important decisions were made, for example, by an experienced minister, Andrei Gromyko. In addition, Brezhnev constantly hesitated between different forces in the party and the government and made decisions not one but in the circle of members of the Politburo, as well as his advisers. An example of a collective decision is the decision of 1979 of the year to introduce a limited contingent of Soviet troops in Afghanistan.
    But the “decision to annex the Crimea,” the German author further reports, was taken personally by Putin.
    Western oniAliteGs burned down: in fact, this is an admission of the long-known fact that the USSR after 1953 survived what is called the “control take-over” and became controlled by the target vector that was formed in the USA, but under Putin, the opposite process takes place, the same take-over, only depriving the world of plutocracy of governance in the Russian Federation)))

    You are only GERMANS, who are really in small numbers in America, do not mix with crypto-Jews - the so-called "werewolves" who really came from Germany, with all their frank physiognamic characteristics that betray them, they implicitly declare that. that they are "Germans". But there was an opinion before the First World War that it was precisely the political and economic alliance of Russia with Germany that could give unprecedented stability and economic prosperity. History must be handled carefully, as with an unrecoverable mine - it is very simple to cause an “explosion” ...

    Dear, I do not "mix" anything. That you divide the Germans into "minority" and "majority". And a nation is one if it lives within the borders of its state. In addition, modal verbs of the “could” type in history just do not work. Please read the classics carefully.
    I know one thing: if there weren’t our Iskanders in Kaliningrad (apparently the old name of the city is closer to you), the Germans would have long ago begun to capture this region of Russia. Look at the unfortunate Ukraine that fell into the hands of the Germans four years ago.

    I am not a fan of GDP, during the reign I could, or rather I had to do much more for the simple PEOPLE, namely for the simple PEOPLE, I did not. But, this is our president, and if all these liberals of all stripes are screaming, that means we are moving correctly in some area, we must be tougher and more cunning, just look at them as “partners” - they are not our partners, ENEMIES, Anglo-Saxons have always been and will be -the political whores of the world are who they are, they only worry about their rotten, rotten ass. We must see them in the grave!

    Is it possible to call decisions of psychos in the House No. 6 democracy (the US State Department and the Senate, "with accomplices" from various intelligence corners), if the "doctor (time and history)" does not intervene yet? ... But when it intervenes, then it’s bad will not only be to the states, but also to their slander in Europe ...

    Interestingly, but Putin knows more about the situation in the country-world than we do? winked

    How subtly and wisely, Vladimir Vladimirovich, with his smiling policy, put the world hegemon on his ass! We can now hear so much interesting about our country and its leader (together with the team, visible and invisible), how many have not heard of anyone else in the world. If you want, you don’t want, but you remember pride in the fact that you are a RUSSIAN!

    Trump, you're not stiff in the wrong place! Many tried to talk harshly with Russia, the RSFSR, the USSR, Russia, and what happened, didn’t forget? Show your toughness in your USA or in your family! And to boast that you are tougher than Obama, it means that he was a little smarter than you! If you want to go down in history as a tough politician, then the best action would be to end all gang bombings, close all your military bases, establish good relations with all countries that disgust American ambitions!
