Military Review

Tsar and boyars

111
Probably, all of us, as patriots of our country, should demonstrate optimism and instill in others the confidence that everything goes perfectly well. But if you are by nature not a completely stupid person, you still unwittingly notice that the situation in Russia is not developing in the best way, and the less reason for optimism, the further into the future we try to look.


Yes, we have a good army, which is actively developing and only getting better from year to year. But the USSR also had a good army, and where is the Soviet Union now?

Yes, new types weapons, Krymsky Bridge, good roads in unprecedented quantities, perpetual budget surplus, trade balance surplus, inflation at a record low ...



But somehow all this does not convince, understand? Here with the same inflation: I would understand pride if the Central Bank provided the current record low inflation at the refinancing rate of 2%. And with 8% and above this, sorry, any fool can. Or a budget surplus: perhaps it can be useful for a year or two, during the period of fighting hyperinflation. And what is he talking about now? Yes, except that the government is not smart enough to count its revenues and properly manage the money. The ideal is a budget in which revenues with expenses do not diverge a penny. And on the scale of a country like the Russian Federation, it would be wiser to have a small deficit, covered by borrowing in the domestic market. True, provided that the money is spent wisely. And this is almost fiction ...

And nevertheless, I absolutely do not share the point of view that is gaining popularity, that our power is somehow treacherous, completely corrupt, the Central Bank submits to the American Fed and so on. Our minds are really sparse, and the power is our own, flesh of the flesh.

I often have to read in the comments to my articles ironic attacks in the spirit of "again, the king is good, and the boyars are bad." And the people are probably right in something: the boyars are still picked up by the “king”, and a certain part of the blame for the boyar incompetence lies precisely with him. But let's still try to separate the wheat from the chaff, and the need for change - from the thirst to carry everything to the ground.

The assertion that all the boyars are bad in our country does not stand up to criticism, if only because it seems to be good. Here, for example, Sergey Viktorovich Lavrov. It is difficult to say whether he always manages to achieve the highest possible result. But we have someone to compare: remember Shevardnadze or Kozyrev. Against their background, Lavrov looks just great, and indeed, by the general results of the work, it seems that it was simply impossible to achieve more.

Or, say, Sergey Kuzhugetovich Shoigu. Well coped with the post of head of the Ministry of Emergency Situations, and even now, it seems, does not give reason to doubt that it is in its place. And, again, there is someone to compare with - remember the recent head of the Ministry of Emergency Situations, who replaced Shoigu in this position, Vladimir Puchkov. Yes, at the post of Deputy Shoigu, he somehow managed to cope with it, but as soon as he gave the reins of government to the department, “something went wrong.” An interesting example of the predecessor of Shoigu as Minister of Defense, Anatoly Serdyukov. Although he is credited with the authorship of some positive changes in the Russian army (which is still a controversial issue), it’s still clear that he didn’t have a position like this: after all, people from his closest circle were blatantly stealing a matter of time, when they were recruited by foreign special services on such compromising material.

There are other "boyars", less significant and noticeable, coping fairly well with their duties. The head of the FSB, for example, whatever you say, and now terrorist activity in Russia is even less than in Europe itself. Or take the same Zolotov - literally until yesterday, the person coped well with the duties assigned to him and did not discredit the system and the "king." And the devil pulled him to call Navalny for the garages to fight with his fists ...

That is, hand on heart, we must admit that we have different “boyars”. There are also those that do not spoil the mass, and they are regularly pulling their “burlatz strap”.

But lately, more and more others are heard: illiterate, arrogant, self-confident. And this concerns not only the so-called economic bloc, but also various “politicians” of the Duma spill, all of whose activities, it seems, boils down to “stamping out” new laws and creating the appearance of political activity and pluralism.

Probably, we could demand from Putin (well, how “they could demand” - Navalny, too, so it seemed) to be more cautious in choosing advisers, assistants, ministers and other “service people”. But let's still not forget that he, despite his high position, is still a living person. And unfortunately sometimes it is human nature to make mistakes ...

Putin demonstrates a good selection of personnel where he himself is more or less well versed in the subject: in politics, geopolitics, in matters of internal and external security. And I do not agree with those who shout that his foreign policy allegedly led Russia into a sanctioned impasse.

The fact that our foreign policy position is far from ideal is a fact. But the point here is not Putin, but the quality of the challenges he faced.

Alas, miracles do not happen, and in a situation of confrontation with the real, without fools, masters of the world, possessing almost unlimited resources, it was just silly to count on an easy and quick victory. But it was impossible not to accept the challenge to us in Georgia, Ukraine or Syria.

As for Georgia and Ukraine, everything is simple, if you know how starfish eat. If you do not know, I will tell you. They, having grasped the victim with thousands of small legs on their rays, dumped out the stomach and simply digested the still living and fluttering prey. So the events at our borders were so enveloping us with an insatiable American stomach. Those who think that we needed to keep quiet in order to “carry it through” are mistaken - just in the absence of resistance, the digestive process in starfish goes the fastest.

According to the events in Syria, the situation is slightly different, but, nevertheless, our inaction there, too, could cost us dearly.

Incredibly, but the fact is that the Syrian campaign is the most profitable investment for Russia for all (probably) its history. And this is not about some abstract benefit, but about very specific money - rubles, dollars, euros, and so on.

After the start of the Ukrainian crisis and referendum in the Crimea, one of the ways to strangle Russia and pacify its ambitions was the collapse of energy prices. And this process even began to begin - we all remember how oil rapidly fell from more than a hundred dollars to thirty-six at the end of 2015. Although even earlier, at the end of 2014, the drop exceeded 50%, and the price was kept at the level of 50-55 dollars per barrel. It seems that during this period one of the Saudi princes in one of the social networks wrote a boastful post that his grandfather had helped to ruin the USSR, and now they will help to ruin Russia.

But as soon as the operations of the Russian VKS in Syria began, the situation on the oil market began to gradually but steadily change. And members of the Saudi royal family were suddenly noted on a visit to Putin’s Sochi residence, and the SA king himself made a state visit to Russia for the first time in history. And the OPEC + agreement was signed, and oil production began to be amicably reduced. In general, by some strange coincidence, the more they thrashed Saudi henchmen in Syria, the more expensive oil became. Is it really a coincidence?

No, do not believe those who pour crocodile tears for each of our bombs, allegedly spent aimlessly in Syria. Yes, for the price of another bomb, you can really buy a tram for the municipality. But this time, the opposite is true - every successful hit of our land mine brings the country tens, hundreds of millions of dollars. And collectively, we can talk about at least tens of billions of net profit. And this is without taking into account the increased demand for Russian weapons ...

Therefore, let us be objective - Putin is good in politics, and we need to be a completely stupid person so as not to notice.

But in the economy, unfortunately, the selection of personnel is disgusting. And there will be no references to external risks - after all, the sane economists should have seen a couple of decades ago the country's position in the area of ​​providing the population with their own food, medicines, clothes, consumer goods and cars. All the more obvious were the problems in the machine-tool industry, electronics, aircraft industry and many more of the most diverse industries. And the fact that our entire “economic strategy” was reduced to the commonplace “sell oil - we buy the right product” just now led to the difficult situation in the country, to put it mildly.

Just in case, I want to advise everyone who starts to shout, how well we all have in agriculture, search in open sources, how many seeds we import, how many breeding eggs for our poultry farms and what dependence we still have on beef, for example. Armed with this information, you will surely be able to understand with what reservations we are all “good.”

Putin’s problem (besides the fact that he is not strong in economics) is that we simply do not have sane economists. The reason for this lies in the legacy that we inherited from the USSR.

Alas, Soviet economists understood Marx better than economics. By the end of the eighties, this somehow became very clear. And when the greatest Soviet “economist” Nikolai Ryzhkov fired the USSR in the leg, transferring trade with the former CMEA countries to dollars, the system naturally collapsed.

On the shoulders of these economists, the “young growth” of the illiterate MNF rooted in, who did not have enough knowledge to break through during the Soviet competition, but the Komsomol chuyka was enough to understand how the wind was blowing. And they quickly declared themselves to be marketers, were brought to the surface by the muddy waters of the nineties, and so they were fixed there, still holding their positions firmly.

Putin’s trouble (and all of us) is that he simply has no one to choose from. Before him, a dense line of stand or all the same Komsomol eighties, or they have learned graduates of the Higher School of Economics. And this, sorry, as the choice between horseradish and radish ...

Once again, shamelessly and loudly, I declare that in Russia there are simply no sane economists. And do not rush to sort out the names - I went through them dozens of times, but the result is always the same. They are neither on the right flank, nor on the left, nor in the center, if we still have one. Believe me, there is no difference from which side an economist has an extra chromosome ...

It is very difficult to say how it will end. We look pretty good on the external fronts, but all successes discredit the failures and weaknesses on the internal ones. Maybe GDP will make a miracle and find somewhere a couple of sane economists. Or maybe General Zolotov will challenge Maxim Oreshkin and will beat him behind the garages until he wiser (smiling for nothing, not such a hopeless option).

While one thing is clear: if Vladimir Vladimirovich “does not abandon his own people,” he should decide who his own is for him: the people of Russia or some of his worthless “boyars.” Because somehow it happened that the boyars themselves were no longer a people. And now "either - or."

And Putin, we probably still come in handy. It is like a tooth - it can be pulled out, it can be cured. But to pull out both more painfully and more expensively (it will be necessary to insert a new one) and more dangerous - the patient, that is, the system of state power in Russia, is not very healthy and may simply not survive such an operation.

With all the consequences, as they say ...

      The article is a speech by a lawyer, to explain to the court that the offender is not to blame, the environment and circumstances are to blame, and too trusting ... (exaggerated) GDP is not the successor to the throne and if it fails (for at least ten years now, the people are impoverished) down from carts, let him try another, no, still look, in Russia there will be hundreds suitable for replacement ... Yes, here is the whole guard of corrupt officials, and the Rosguard created by that will be protected and held for another five presidential terms .. That’s with age 80 years, as befits dictators in power ....

        Unbelievable, but true - the Syrian campaign is for Russia the most profitable investment money for all (probably) her story.

        Really absolutely unbelievable! And further in the article there is an explanation of this thesis:
        Both the OPEC + agreement was signed, and oil production began to be amicably reduced. In general, by some strange coincidence, the more they beat the Saudi henchmen in Syria, the more expensive the oil became. Is it really a coincidence?

        Dear author, please clarify the issue of "the most profitable investment". For me this is not at all obvious. Moreover, I'm sure the opposite is true! That the Syrian company with incomprehensible goals is an unreasonable burden for Russia, the money spent is gigantic and irreplaceable ... Therefore, it has classified the budget of this company!

        Maybe I'm wrong? Therefore, without any trollism, sincere request - you wrote an article, so clarify in more detail why do you think that the Saudis raised the price of oil because of Russia's participation in Syria? And how exactly could the Saudis raise it? I do not see a direct connection.

        How cool everything is with the author. That's politics, they only deal with politics, but economists they only deal with economics. With politics it’s good, but not with economics. And if there are problems with the economy, then they are economists, and they don’t have to touch politicians very much. and Shoigu, and Lavrov with Putin will come in handy more than once.
        But you’re the author completely misleading people in vain. This division is false, artificial. Because it is correct to call this science political economy, as it was called in the USSR. This means that politics dominates the economy, politics determines how you earn, spend, and in whose the interests (in the interests of which class) the economic policy is being pursued in the country as a whole. The bourgeois capitalists, they are the oligarchs who have usurped power, adopt laws that are beneficial for the business they are headed by. Economy-private business drives resources abroad, money is in the pocket of a private oligarch, and if there are problems that the state, which has become an obedient puppet, will allocate money to the oligarchs for support or modernization from the budget, and people who simply drive these same resources, pipe, scout, etc. get crumbs from the master’s table. Here’s a good example of how politics controls the economy, and the fact that spending is carried out primarily in the interests of the oligarchy.
        PS Do not also forget that "our" home-grown oligarchs are in a kneeling position in relation to Western capitalists and therefore they allow them to do whatever they want in Russia as long as they continue to be allowed to plunder the country. For example, the Perm Territory has been a pilot Justice in Russia. Now, for example, such an order has been adopted by the KDN (Commission on Minors and the Protection of Their Rights) dated 2008/15.09.18/30 in the Perm Territory. The essence of this is to oblige teachers to go from door to door and assess the standard of living of the family, even to the point of looking into refrigerators to give a certain point to the family. When a minimum of XNUMX points are set, they are registered. The requirements are drawn up in such a way that almost anyone can be registered. You can find more details on the RVS website (All-Russian parental resistance).

        = his and wrong = And yours, Victor, analysis, of course, is "him"
        Once, the one you mentioned, Shevardnadze said, I quote from memory, I can’t vouch for the accuracy of the words, but I’ll convey the meaning for sure - “it’s not difficult for me to talk to the“ West ”because I have all the economic and military might of the USSR behind me.” Of course, he was cunning, it was easy for him, because step by step he purposefully gave up positions. Well, it's not about him.
        It would also be much easier for the darkest if the Russian Federation were an economically powerful state. And V.V. he understands this, but ... For some reason, he continues to keep people in the government who are not able to move the economy of the Russian Federation off the ground. Why? You say there is no one to replace. Oh, is it? Or maybe it's not just the personalities? Although personalities mean a lot. Well, for what such merits was Oreshkin appointed to one of the key positions? And if you look at his track record? Is his brilliant career the result of his remarkable intelligence and organizational skills? Or maybe everything is more banal - connections? When V.V. offered this candidate for this post, he, at least, should have been alerted by Oreshkin's youth. Either genius or connections. But he "waved", I suppose, without thinking. Why? There are two options: 1. The economy is not yours - sign. 2. They are all in one team and follow the same plan.
        All failures, these are not government mistakes, this is a plan that dooms Russian industry to stagnation.
        And the point here, most likely, is not the absence of "real" economists, not economists should prevail in the government, together with lawyers, but industrialists.
        And the point, I repeat, is not only in personalities, but in the concept of the development of the Russian economy.
        And V.V. he understands this, cannot but understand, but does nothing in order to change the situation. Why? Because it is not in his (their) plans.
        You will notice how he speaks politely, in a fatherly way with the members of the government who have made a mistake. So respectfully asks them to fulfill their duties that you are amazed. But for the "blunders" t. governments human grief, tears, diseases, premature, and not only death. And he is with them so in a shame ...
        Is it easy to be good at someone else's expense? Seen - easy.
        In my opinion, the government's task is to prevent a complete collapse of the economy, otherwise there will be a revolution, civil war and other delights, and, secondly, to prevent economic growth. development of Russia. It is from here that a huge number of construction of factories of "screwdriver assembly" and the continuing closure of their own full cycle production facilities. An example is the recent closure of a tractor plant in the city of Vladimir. But he produced "indestructible" tractors T-25, supplied to 50 countries of the world. The Chinese are very pleased with the opening of a plant for assembling Chinese diesel engines in Russia.

        The author naively believes that the president is ignorant. He knows everything, and the economic elite is quite coping with its task - to prevent the development of production in the country and the independence of the ruble. True, there is a puncture in their work - state corporations, but Rogozin has already been removed from the military-industrial complex, and Borisov has already said that we do not need new types of weapons. So the process is going on.

      GDP shows the maximum where it is interested: exterior and defense. There are failures, but successes are obvious, efforts are noticeable, positive dynamics, search and selection of personnel, which can not be said about the economic bloc, which is over! During the presidency, the GDP carries out liberal reforms, despite the fact that the military-industrial complex functions well on planned principles, even creates its own education system, parallel to the general education - cadet corps. Those. the tsar has a successful example of another type of economy before his eyes, another successful example is the Primakov-Maslyukov anti-crisis measures. In my opinion, all this speaks not about the lack of personnel or sufficient competence of the GDP for their selection, but about the unanimity of the president and the government in the economy.

            You "fell for" the thesis of the timing of the election for a second term. It was then that he was actively played. They say that he destroyed Berezovsky, Gusinsky, Khodorkovsky, etc., and "built" the rest. I also took a bite then, I really wanted to believe. And now the bottom line is that it was not Putin who expelled these adventurers who were not living with the main pack of adventurers, but pack. And it was she who, having completed the division and showdown, established the rules of coexistence within herself. She also appointed a screen - Putin. At least Putin’s entire domestic policy aimed at respecting the interests of the oligarchic elite is an excellent confirmation of such a hypothesis. Moreover, this is characteristic of any capitalist country. Why is our sudden exception?

And Berezovsky and Khodor just flooded into the wrong steppe. Do you really naively believe that the Potanins and Vekselbergs simply handed over the power that was torn out in the struggle to some captain (albeit the KGB), without putting on a “strict” collar? Just remember how he went on stage. And where then they shoved the same Primakov, who only slightly pressed his tail down (posthumously praising)

      The analysis was conducted one-sidedly from the perspective of domestic and foreign policy, but if you look from the other side? What if the policy is whole? that is, it is done in the interests of a certain group of people producing oil? Oil is extracted from us, in the future, and in Syria, for this we need an army to defend the interests of that part of our people that owns the oil field wink as well as that part of the people who owns gas.

For many centuries, breeding was carried out on the cultivation of supreme rulers, managers and slaves. The idea of ​​class superiority has been adopted! So what? What results did this lead to? It turned out that the explosive growth in living standards and the economy occurred under a social order! Then capitalism came again, and growth began to stomp around zero! So what is evolution?

          Because Grudinin:
          1) political dwarf. Not only not known to the majority of people, but also not having support among politically strong circles.
          2) not an accurate person, poorly prepared for a political confrontation with a stronger opponent.
          3) the party was represented by the leader of which completely discredited the communist idea.
          PS You can still find a bunch of reasons why Grudinin was not interested, but lastly I want to note - well, now he is not trying to remind himself in every possible way of himself as a political figure and a possible contender for governing the state? He was a dummy, like other candidates, so she remained! He is a wimp, and a wimp in power is a guaranteed mess in the country.
          PPS Most of my friends voted for Putin, I voted for another candidate as a counterweight, but no one had a chance. Putin won enough votes in one round. That’s the whole price of other candits - dwarfs and frank dolls.

              Under paragraph 1, - gross domestic product when appointed as prime minister (EBN), no one knew him

              Not a convincing argument. The Prime Minister is not elected, but appointed, and after that everyone recognized him! Having displaced Yeltsin, Putin showed outstanding ability as a leader, diplomat and politician! The fact that Yeltsin was moved without resorting to a coup and revolution is aerobatics for the politician, it was these qualities that the politicians lacked in the 90s. He was able to take advantage of the existing politicians, military, special services and business, who provided him with support. And this is not an ode, but a fact!
              For GDP stretched a train of dark affairs in St. Petersburg

              For whom, then, did not trails of dark affairs reach for? Our entire large business of the 90s was formed on illegal frauds, and in politics there were people mired in intrigue and a free understanding of both the laws and the meaning of their existence. Grudinin, by the way, also belongs to the businessmen of the 90s, both in mentality and in political views. He does not have the main thing for a high-flying politician, what Putin had, the ability to unite and place the people he needs to him. It is they who prepare his image for the rest and close his failures. You cannot go ahead in politics, and Grudinin did just that, intentionally or such was his role, but it happened.
              Zu and his party did not try too hard to promote

              It would be better if Zu simply appointed a representative of his party, exposing a businessman, thereby convincing those around him that he and his party have the same relationship with the Communists as the Zhirinovsky party!
              Grudinin went into big politics recently, but in the Moscow region was known

              In the Moscow region, this is not the whole country, there are tens of thousands of such unfortunate politicians in our country, and this is precisely what speaks of its insignificant value and the corresponding result for it in the elections.
              Now six years of stagnation and "no money" - to the people, and until the new elections

              Yes, you are an optimist! What stagnation ?! There will be a continuous "entertainment" with further economic degradation of the bulk of the population, the political decay of the elites and the ever greater transformation of legislative and political life into a theater of absurdity.

    "And when the greatest Soviet" economist "Nikolai Ryzhkov shot the USSR in the leg, converting trade with the former CMEA countries to dollars, the system naturally collapsed." ... before writing, the author should have studied the history of the issue ... "" At the CMEA session in Sofia in 1990, the Soviet delegation, in a speech by the head of government N. Ryzhkov, proposed introducing the dollar as a unit of account in trade turnover between the CMEA countries, and then, after a 3-5 year period, switch to real dollar settlements. This was a sober and justified approach, however the omnipresent innovator Mikhail Gorbachev gave the command to immediately switch to settlements with the socialist countries in dollars. The system of economic relations with the eastern countries of Europe was dealt such a blow that it could not withstand "
    Minister of Foreign Economic Relations K.F. Katushev, Collections "Foreign Trade of the USSR" of different years of publication.
    So it's not about N. Ryzhkov.

      In him, darling. In the nuances you can dig for a long time. The bottom line is that he was the prime minister when this decision was made. Without his signature, no Gorbachev would have done anything. In a pinch, he could retire. But no, not gone. So do not tell anyone else about the great Soviet prime minister - he finished off the USSR, and this is the only thing you need to know. Thank.

    In the subject of education:
    Konstantin Semin with Alexander Ivanov. Lively

    It is interesting about the cadet corps, the high cost of training to educate the elite for the army.
    The rest of the education intentionally remains so that the EG system could not, according to Mikhailo Lomonosov:
    "What can own Platons
    And fast with the mind of Neutons
    Russian land to give birth. "

    It seems that a parallel education system is being created, the only question is
    to whom the graduates of the cadet corps will swear allegiance - the working people or the "new nobles",
    ruling elite?

    You cannot find economists ... Well, why is the author sure that Putin is looking for them?
    It seems to me that absolutely everything suits him on the internal front! His entire economy is geared specifically to serving the boyars, i.e. inner circle.
    Put him on the people, otherwise the retirement age would not increase, but really was looking for options to boost the economy.

    The author "drove" the reader into the delusional opposite. Then he writes: [i "] Incredibly, but the fact is that the Syrian campaign is the most profitable investment of money for Russia in its entire (probably) history. And this is not about some abstract benefit, but about completely specific money - rubles, dollars, euros, etc. Further."
    [/ I]
    Then he writes:All the more obvious were the problems in machine tool building, electronics, aircraft manufacturing and many other different industries. And the fact that our whole “economic strategy” boiled down to the banal “sell oil - buy the right product” just now led, to put it mildly, to a difficult situation inside the country.
    The author, on the one hand, defends the idea of ​​intervention in the Syrian conflict in order to maintain a high oil price, on the other hand, criticizes the authorities that they are on an oil needle. All the billions that the Aerospace Forces "knock out" in Syria are not "visible" to the average man in Russia.
    "Once again, shamelessly and loudly, I declare - there are simply no sane economists in Russia."
    This is a lie! There are many. Only they are not needed. Because the task of the authorities now is to fulfill the requirements of the IMF.
    As for the personnel ... Yes, PERSONALLY Putin has no personnel. But the Russian people have enough of them.

    The country has a very strange tendency: Putin arrives in a certain locality, and there something immediately moves off the ground, thefts are opened, construction projects that have hovered before, governors and mayors are being removed, salaries are being issued ... Remember the Primorsky Oceanarium and the Vostochny Cosmodrome . Therefore the words The trouble for Putin (and all of us) is that he simply has no one to choose from somehow they do not convince. Could Putin have figured out everything in two or three days and identified the culprits? Of course not. Everything has already been identified and documented, but for some reason the competent authorities did not touch the perpetrators. Apparently they were waiting for a command face. "And this, excuse me, already looks like a kind of management organization system. It is possible that the president, according to the old KGB habit, trusts only those on whom you can dig up compromising evidence. It is very convenient - you can pull all sorts of strings, get bored, then pull harder.

    About the thoughts of colleagues. First. Is the Russian people tired of the Stalinist economy? Definitely. And do not repeat again. A lot of good people overstrained. Second. Can (have experience) an FSB scout (a loner according to the rules of intelligence) create a team? Whole team. Hardly. Wherein. The third. Does the foreign intelligence officer have a bright head? In most cases, it has (always selected "for business"). Fourth. Does MOST have a program? Definitely there is, and something tells me that ITSELF had thoughts exactly after the Kursk tragedy. Moreover, the program is ambitious - put the States in their place. By the way, the families and the Rockefellers, and the Rothschilds and other "Saxons". He negotiated with some. But then they did not understand what was seriously interpreting. And now they understand and shit as they can. But somehow it turns out that BB and checkmate puts them :). There are many examples. I don’t even want to list. The fifth. Has he adopted (drafted and implemented) the current Constitution of the BB? No. At the same time, he is inclined to act within the framework of the law. Under the new Constitution, bowels DO NOT belong to the people. Hence the "Russian" oligarchs. At the same time, did he make the oligarchs reckon with his opinion? Made ... Or someone does not know that at first, for example, Abramovich invested in Chukotka, and then he was allowed to take off? The sixth. The main thing the CIA played under Gorbachev and Yeltsin is the CPSU’s stupidity. For example: disregarding any losses of Russia, to support - to plant socialism in the "fraternal" republics. Both near and far. In fact, at the time of the collapse of the USSR, for example, the Baltic states skated like cheese in oil. The main thing is industry and infrastructure. And Russia provided them. Ports, factories, roads, food (food), resorts and brick houses with attached garages on state farms. On the contrary - across the border of Pskov. Off-road, rotten houses and shops are empty. Therefore, all young people left for big cities. And until now the Pskov region has not recovered from such fraternal "equality" of the peoples of the USSR. So. Why the CIA? Example. ALL engines for helicopters (in particular) were given in series to Zaporizhzhya Plant. Now Motor Sich. Although they could at factories in the RSFSR. Gift ukram. Or another example from the same aviation. The USSR needed a medium-range aircraft. Instead of AN-24, Yak-40 or TU-134. Intercity bus. To fly often, economically and from bad airfields. But at the same time the most modern in the world. And so "Ilyushin" on his own initiative designed one. IL-114. 60 seats and no flight attendants. We sat down and flew. The engines for it were developed and brought to mind by "Klimov". The CPSU decided, when they brought the plane to mind, to give its production to Tashkent. And yet they began to do it there. What happened when the USSR collapsed? Russian shots ran to Russia. There was no one to do the plane. Enough of the examples. This was called cooperation. That connection collapsed and war is not necessary - all the equipment, areas, machines, test equipment - abroad. And abroad or Natsik or boobies. The CIA is happy. Why have I been talking about this garbage for so long? Yes, because THIS is also ECONOMY! And it’s impossible to deploy the entire economy quickly. During all the years of the construction of capitalism in Russia, the government's economists put up with the "division" of labor. Freight trains were sent to the Baltic states at ports, they bought engines from ukrov and aircraft from Boeing and Airbus. The problems started. To begin with, the Balts were thrown with sprats :). Then with the ports. The production of engines has settled at home. They took out from Tashkent what was left and now we are deploying the release of IL-112 and IL-114. The production of arrays for sights of reconnaissance complexes of armored vehicles was returned from France. We got rid of purchases in the States of electronic components with radiation protection for "Sarmatov" and "Federation", etc. etc. Thus, despite the roars of the decrepit lion, the aging white-headed eagle and the howling jackals, global affairs in the economy are being made in Russia. And now about the Tsar and the boyars. Viktor Kuzovkov, the boyars are to blame for everything? And who is the king? Did he build capitalism in Russia with his friends Chubais, Kudrin, Gref and others, faithfully believing in the IMF, WTO and exchanges? Is he. So he needs to break himself first. Probably sooo hard. And probably he himself knows that. Therefore, he is indulgent to his Komsomol members. And about Lavrov with Shoigu. The first mumble, so it’s ridiculous to look at our excuses, toothlessness. For example, the Chinese were shitting in a forest in the Far East. Or in the fields they took 3 (three!) Crops per season and nothing else grows on the scorched earth. Local authorities pinned them. They immediately call our ambassador in Beijing and give him a spell: do not touch our abarmots! And everything is quiet. The second is always "with the money." Therefore, at first the Ministry of Emergency Situations swelled, and now the armed forces are falling from the pie. And WHAT A GOOD Fellow ... Of course, he took into account the mistakes of the former Minister of Defense. Cleaned up. As without it. With a sly Asian frame. Well, that’s it. In short, at the moment of history, it is not about the king and the boyars. And in the successors of the elders commies - Komsomol members. Here the dog rummaged, as the General Secretary Gorbachev used to say. He is also a passionate Komsomol member in his youth. And nothing good came out of the Komsomol members. Neither in production, nor in economics, nor in science. Some studied as engineers, designers, while others learned to write slogans with a slogan pen. They are neither lawyers, by the way. Hence the conclusion. So far, no replacement is visible. Komsomol members are everywhere in power. But the ship is slowly turning in the right direction ... VV decided so. What should be done in the economy? Yes, in such a situation, only vary in taxes. Nothing else. A tram appeared in the former capital of the Russian Empire. And the Government approved ticket prices very high - higher than in Europe. And nothing. We went. And in Moscow, Sobyanin took and canceled the general fare for commuter trains for pensioners with their capital subsidies. Is this normal? So POOR ... And in other cities they cannot - there is no money. In general, Moscow is a huge financial vacuum cleaner from all over the vast Russia. And young people from Orenburg, Tyumen, etc. DREAMS to settle there. In a normal country, such a phenomenon is being fought. The capital is transferred to another place and life is made more expensive. If you want to live in the capital, please, but you will give the money. And in Russia it is different: "We will make Muscovites happier than everyone else and for Muscovites we will take another half of the Moscow region for the expansion of the capital!" And we will bury billions of dollars in the construction of New Vasyuki (Moscow). What are your plants in Cheboksary-Yekaterinburg-Pskov? What are you speaking about... Therefore, Sobyanin well done (for Muscovites)! He sat down on a GOLD vein. Nothing Magadan in the pope? Well, not Moscow ... And a decent retirement pension is not expected. No money left.

    Nonsense. A bunch of competent economists in the country, take any academician-economist of the Russian Academy of Sciences (they certainly were not former Komsomol upstarts) and put him as Minister of Finance, Chairman of the Central Bank. The same Glazyev or Katasonov (of those who are by ear). Create an economic council under the Government, which includes scientists, production managers, economists from the same PRC, South Korea, and Japan. Nobody just needs it. The main task of the authorities is to maintain a margin for large hydrocarbon exporting capital, plus not to offend contractors - all sorts of Rotenbergs who are fattening on government orders. The real economy and raising the living standards of the population are uninteresting.

    I remember that the book "The Legacy of Tsar Boris" describes the situation when Yeltsin in the early 90s was offered to listen to one well-known guru of the Japanese economy, almost the author of the Japanese economic miracle. So, after listening to this old Japanese, Yeltsin said, like, we will not do as the Japanese advises, he is offering us to return communism. Like this. What has changed over the years? The same people are in power, with the same approaches, goals and objectives. In the 90s, they did everything to ensure that all the economic power of Soviet Russia passed into the hands of the oligarchs - yesterday's Komsomol members and foreign capital. With the advent of Putin, everything is done to ensure that the loot remains with the oligarchs, and their incomes multiplied. Just kill me, but I do not see a single step of our government, directed for the prosperity of the people, for their well-being. I would be glad, but I do not see. Can someone open their eyes?

You don’t need to look for this bottom anymore. A pillar of the same scale should appear next to Putin, but with knowledge of economics, not by theory, but PRACTICE!

    Dear fellow citizens, Putin can be treated differently. It has many pros and cons, like all people. But everyone is judged by the deeds done and how we began to live better or worse. That's the whole analysis of his activities. My opinion was that he didn’t have to go to the presidential elections, he was exhausted and there would be no benefit from his further rule. There would be stagnation and everyone understands this and he sees

    Ah ha ha, yes, the USSR will soon be gone for 30 years, how much can you dump everything on it? !!!!!
    From the official data (Rosstat) it is clear that during the reign of Putin and Medvedev, Russia lost 26,3 thousand schools. That is, every year 1,65 thousand schools were closed in the country. For comparison: under the "ghoul" Stalin, before the war, 5 thousand new schools were built every year. Compare that to a record 94 schools to be built this year. 5060 against 94.
    Temples
    And here everything is fine. The number of Orthodox churches in the country is close to the number of schools. Over 26 schools have been closed in Russia, but 000 churches have been opened!

    Alas, Soviet economists were better versed in Marx than in economics.

    to understand economics and in Marx these are synonyms. The trouble is different. There was no development of doctrine. According to Marx, if labor is added to raw materials, a product is obtained, that is, money is a stroke. This very stroke was appropriated by the capitalist. and the proportion of manual labor at that time was very serious. even the definition was - value is labor embodied in the product. Nowadays, the share of labor in the cost is scanty, much more much more energy is present there. And wars are now going for Energy - oil and gas. Soviet economists were deprived of freedom of thought; all problems were obliged to be let down and explained from the standpoint of the class struggle. Soviet leaders were more versed in party nomenclature than in life. Now economists also do not understand either Marx or the economy. Philosophy is not fashionable. And in order to understand all parts of Marx’s Capital, you need to deal with Hegel’s Logic, and this is already Fantastic !! but the only way to create a competent economist and win the economy.

    But seriously, without a guarantee for new elections, a kayuk, if for example with health like EBENE, they will put some kind of AI, and again hello the saints of the 90s, this is not a hunt.

    For example, the fact that they began to talk about Stalin only not long ago, but what kind of protection did he have? Doctors with an impeccable reputation worked at enterprises, prescribed medical procedures. upon receipt of work-related injuries, permits to a sanatorium, then further training, etc., and so on, before the treatment of the leader of the peoples, they matured and didn’t keep track of poisoned, someone got through, although they officially deny it.
