Military Review

America's sunset. Dawn of Russia?

Project "ZZ". In the United States, political and economic contradictions, directly related to attitudes toward Russia, have matured and have already borne fruit. On the one hand, Washington is crushing Moscow with sanctions, ramping up the arms race and is ready to continue its aggressive policy in the future. On the other hand, the current USA is the largest investor in the Russian Federation. Moreover, in recent years, American politics has hardly been a team game: the “players” on the field demonstrate confusion and staggering and ignore the orders of the “captain”. Russia is a different matter: here the tops are united, they talk about future growth and even promise an economic miracle. Only one thing interferes with his creation: "sastoi."




American money - to Russia!


Mathias Bruggmann, Head of Foreign Affairs «Handelsblatt», an experienced correspondent specializing in Eastern Europe, the Arab world and Iran, in a new analytical article not without irony notes that the United States wants to subject Russia to sanctions, but is its largest investor. Countries that deal with Russia, the United States threatens severe penalties. But they themselves are pumping more money into this country than previously thought! "Sometimes big stories hiding behind small statistics, ”the analyst says and moves on to the facts.

US President Donald Trump does not hesitate to punish states that are politically challenging American interests. This also applies to Russia, the journalist notes. Washington’s sanctions policy toward Moscow has been ongoing for several years now, and the White House is “paying close attention” to how the sanctions regime is respected “in third countries, for example, Europe.” And Washington is threatening punishment for countries that shy away from the regime. An example for Europe is the 2 Nord Stream pipeline dispute.

And all the more surprising, continues Bruggmann, that "American companies are the largest investors in Russia!" According to official statistics from the Russian Central Bank, Americans have invested just 3,1 billion dollars. But in fact, the figure is 12,6 times greater: 39,1 billion dollars. This is confirmed by current data from UNCTAD, the UN Conference on Trade and Development. And this amount is more than the investments of German companies that maintain close relations with Russia traditionally. German investments amount to 33,2 billion dollars, the analyst notes.

And this is only foreign direct investment (FDI) without taking into account the additional billions invested in Russian financial markets.

When you see such investments, you ask yourself: Are Americans really taking their own sanctions regime seriously? However, this is not the most important question. Here, politics is more important. According to UN experts, investment indicators have "potentially far-reaching policy implications."

Analysts cite the opinion of Ivan Tkachev from the Moscow business agency News Rosbusinessconsulting. It is very important how much money the United States invested: only 3,1 billion dollars, or several times more. This just explains why the Trump government did not impose sanctions on many Russian industries.

“Official statistics have always underestimated US Russian investment,” experts at EY, an American consulting company, said. Significant amounts of FDI that came to Russia from the United States, as well as US government bonds worth at least 15 billion dollars, again did not allow the US Treasury to tighten Russia's sanctions in January 2018, experts recall.

As for the current financial realities, recently the most important Russian ruble bonds issued with coupons of almost seven percent have been exempted from strict US sanctions. A good third of Russian OFZs are owned by foreign investors, and these are mainly pension funds and insurance companies from the United States. At the same time, the US government included in the list of sanctions Russian government bonds denominated ... in euros. American investors are no longer allowed to buy them.

If in the distant 1998 year Russia was forced to declare a "default", because it could not service the debt on federal loan bonds for 40 billions of dollars, now the situation is completely different. The sanctions imposed by the USA and the EU in 2014 “because of the Russian annexation of the Ukrainian Crimea and the military intervention of Moscow in eastern Ukraine” have practically no effect. This is indicated by Gunter Deuber, an analyst at Raiffeisen Bank International (Austria). According to him, the situation with Russian banks, financial markets in general, or the exchange rate of the national currency gives the impression that "Western sanctions no longer apply."

Moreover, for the first time, Russia was able to announce on August 1 that it has no net debt. The obligations of the Federation, territories and cities amounted to 16,2 trillion rubles (in terms of - 250 billion dollars), which is almost 15 percent of GDP. Foreign exchange and gold reserves, reserves in the National Reserve Fund, budget surplus and other reserves amount to 16,2 percent of GDP (about 270 billion dollars), according to the calculations of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation. Russia, whose economy grew by only 0,7% in the first half of the 2019 year, has now become one of the few countries where there is no net public debt.

A look at the real economy shows that FDI continues to grow in Russia. Not only American. According to the calculations of the Russian-German Chamber of Commerce (Moscow), US sanctions would cost several billion dollars to German companies involved in Russia. But in 2018, German companies invested 3,2 billion euros there, which is the largest amount in a decade! German-Russian trade also grew: last year, growth was 8,4 percent, trade increased to 61,9 billion euros.

Not all data displays growth accurately. Investment statistics are complex. Whereas UNCTAD indicates the volume of German investments in Russia in 33,2 billion dollars (by the end of the 2017 year), then the Bundesbank at the same time totaled 21,3 billion euros (25,6 billion dollars), and the Central Bank of Russia - only 18,1 billion dollars. According to UNCTAD economist Bruno Casella, official Russian statistics overestimate investments from offshore zones and does not distinguish between the “true origin of investors”.



America lacks stability


The sanctions of the White House described above are rather soft than strict, and in reality give green light to American investments in Russia. The wayward Germany is not inferior to America in its desire to invest in Russia: investments, trade, and gas cooperation are growing. Everyone in the West sees what kind of games Washington is playing. Those who do or have done American politics also see this. As long as Western money, circling the winding shores of sanctions, flows like gold rivers to Russia, American politics is losing stability.

A. Krylov in a business newspaper "Sight" He spoke about the violation by the American diplomat of a direct order received from the leadership of the state. In case of refusal to carry out the order of the head of state, the diplomat armed himself with an excuse in the style of "my mood was different." This diplomat was the representative of the United States at the UN Samantha Power, whose book "School of the idealist" has recently been published.

Power told the world that in 2016, when the election of members of the Human Rights Council was held, she was ordered in Washington to vote for Russia. However, Samantha voted for Hungary and Croatia! These countries received 144 and 114 votes respectively. Russia got 112 votes. And here is what Samantha herself wrote about her personal decision:
“But that day my mood was different. From the moment I arrived at the UN, too much has happened so that I can afford not to vote in accordance with my conscience. ”


Power admits that it was her voice that decided the case. If Russia had received a vote more, a second round would have taken place, and Moscow would have won “threats and bribes” (Power).

This initiative of the UN representative gave reason to analyst A. Krylov to conclude that the erosion of American statehood. After all, not only S. Power behaved so defiantly. As you know, contrary to official instructions, Clinton used personal rather than official mail for secret correspondence.

And so far it has not been heard that Hillary was somehow punished. Instead, we recall that the scandal about the intervention of "Russian hackers" was fanned.

To this can be added the instability in the administration of Mr. Trump. Only in the chair of the Minister of Defense for two and a half years, three people were replaced: James "The Crazy Dog" Mattis, Patrick Shanahan (six months was in the status of acting.) And Mark Esper. The other day, John Bolton took off from the post of National Security Advisor. It is symptomatic, by the way, that both Bolton and Mattis, to put it mildly, did not have a love for Russia. And Mr. Bolton was particularly prone to put forward “proposals” that were contrary to the ideas of the president.

In a word, the team game of top US politicians did not stick under Obama, it falls apart under Trump.

Russia is a different matter: here the tops are united, and even the name of the party that brings them together speaks of unity in ideas and decisions.



Miracle of a brighter future?


The Western press recalls the promise of V. Putin to perform an economic miracle. This is written by Christian Steiner in the Swiss edition "Neue Zürcher Zeitung".

Steiner is not new to analyzing the Russian situation. This man has traveled more than once in Russian open spaces - from St. Petersburg to the Far North, from Siberia he reached the distant Sakhalin. He knows very well that Russia is huge and much more diverse than can be imagined from the cliches that are usually associated with this country. Great is the economic potential of Russia. True, the political leadership remains less and less likely to use the existing potential. Raising the economy of present-day Russia is truly a Herculean task, Herr Steiner notes in his Moscow report.

Real incomes have been falling for years, and even optimists expect the economy to grow by a little over 2019% in 1. Since 2013, the real disposable income of Russians has fallen by about 10%. The term "stagnation" ("sastoi"), which describes the stagnation and lack of political and economic dynamism of the Brezhnev years, is in use and at present, the correspondent says. In addition, people’s incomes are consumed by higher taxes, and pension reform “enrages the masses.” These events put pressure on the president’s popularity. After all, Putin "promised his people a good life in return for renouncing political freedoms." And if he is not able to fulfill his promise, he must fear for his power, Steiner said.

However, Putin is not “defeated” at all, Steiner develops the theme. Shortly after the inauguration, he set an action plan. Here is what a journalist writes:
“In the coming years, Putin has prescribed an economic miracle for his country. He wants to make the country one of the five largest economies in the world and raise economic growth to an indicator that exceeds the global average. ”


“Putin attaches particular importance to increasing the life expectancy of his citizens, major infrastructure projects and technological progress,” Steiner continues. “At the heart of the new growth policy are infrastructure investments of billions of euros.” True, what seems to be rational, “upon closer examination” often turns out to be a demonstration of “megalomania”, the correspondent ironically. And even those who were planning in the Kremlin should have understood that the “planned bridge to nowhere” would bring nothing but high costs.

Along with this, Steiner paints Moscow with bright colors.
“There are two worlds in Russia: Moscow and the rest of the country. The capital has a magical appeal and continues to expand. The whole city is a large construction site, and new housing estates are being built on its outskirts ... According to unofficial data, up to 16 million people live in the city. Every day, new restaurants open their doors in the city, and it is estimated that more Maybach limousines drive along the roads of Moscow than in all of Germany. From time to time, startups come up here, and if there is innovation somewhere in the country, then this is in the capital. ”


But nationwide, stagnation. And Steiner believes that Putin is responsible for her. “The Kremlin gentleman failed his foreign policy and isolated his country,” the author of the article said.



If the country's leadership wants everything to be produced inside Russia, then such a desire is not aimed at restoring production, not at participating in the international division of labor, but only at internal security, the analyst notes. As a result, consumers will receive a higher bill, which will result from higher prices and lower quality.

The main question, Steiner believes, is whether Putin will be able to overcome the "sastoi".

Will American and German investments not help to overcome it?

    Yeah, here the tops are one. They say so and promise that you don’t have time to shake the noodles from your ears. And for some, it even grew to the ears.
    And the fact that the Americans are the main investors, so this is surprising. Most TNCs come from America, they are registered there, and bablos are pumped there. Type, business, nothing personal.

        Well, well, don’t do it so harshly, YasenPen, - about us)) We remove the noodles, but it’s not our fault that the machine for its production works without stopping, we do not have time.
        For example, at the annual economic forum Chubais explained to us why "sastoi". In his opinion, for the success of the economy of our country, only two pedals are needed - gas and brake. You press the gas - an economic breakthrough. The brake, which refers to the power and control departments, is a stop. And the government, they say, presses on both brakes. There is smoke, no movement. And this despite the supposedly best monetary policy over the past 28 years.
        And German Gref, pushing aside the rival for hanging noodles, then explained that in fact both pedals are a lack of liquidity and an excess of liquidity. True, he did not specify which of these is gas, and what is the brake.
        So knowledgeable people, one of whom is competent, and the other is even more competent, explained everything to us (they justified the expected economic growth of 1% for 2019). And it turns out that the power departments have nothing to do with it. There remains a lack of liquidity and its excess. And even there is no question who presses the pedals on THESE.

And for these experiments such a salary, such income? But nothing that during this time destroyed enterprises in 2 times more than during the Second World War? At the Moscow socio-economic forum in April it was said that 35000 factories were destroyed during the Second World War, and 25 factories were destroyed over the past 78000 years, production is not growing .....

            And over the past 25 years, 78000 factories have been destroyed, production does not grow ..... Not factories, but enterprises, factories, factories, state farms, collective farms, etc. - and who actually deduced this figure 78000? Most likely, the Communist Party invented it.

        There is an opinion "If only there was no war" and who, if not Putin, will save us from it. And it's not a joke. I myself heard more than once from adults, pensioners, before the elections, when I campaigned for Grudinin.

          That's it. If only there was no war. If not Putin, then who? If not Ivan Ivanovich, then who will lead our district, city, village .... And so we look at the Power from the bottom up with open mouth. So used, it always has been, with rare exceptions. An exception is the end of the 80s - the beginning of the 90s and, probably, the temporary circumference of 1917.
          People stand in line to give their denyuzhki for housing and communal services. In line is worth it! In order to give the money to the Management Company, which no longer knows how else to get out of the way, add a bigger count to the receipt for any repairs to basements and lighting of underground heating mains. What would their lovers on the sea often carry. And then merge in quiet. The LLC was closed, the new LLC was opened at a non-existing legal address. And the grannies are standing. Used to ask a little and pay on time.
          So throughout the country, Moscow may be an exception. Everyone is silent. A pie cost 10 rubles yesterday, today 12 rubles. Just think for 2 r rose in price, a trifle! But, just in case, it went up by 20%. Do you often get your salary raised by 20%?
          My suggestions? There is no alternative to Putin, no opposition. So Putin is our everything. Putin’s economic bloc is absolutely zero - he is not capable of providing any breakthroughs. Therefore, we are content with what we have. But it’s time to SIT and SHOOT. Planting those who are mistresses in resorts for our money carries and shoot those with ballpoint pens worth a billion.

The National Status Fund of our crooks has accumulated so much fat that it is about to crack. That's just the point ... You read the press and you wonder: depending on the context, the same thing is interpreted diametrically opposite. If we are talking about living standards and growth rates, then they immediately recall sanctions, de because of them we are stagnating; in all other cases they will say that sanctions are like an elephant to us.
      But meanwhile, the growth, which the leaders and their vitia have been talking about, is such that the Africans, who have been wearing grass skirts not so long ago, are already catching up with us, while the others have rushed forward and are about to hide behind the horizon. Yes, I have a mobile phone (Chinese), a TV (Korean), a bicycle (Polish), and pants (Turkish). Yes, I am not starving. But ... But glass beads and cans have changed since colonial expansion.
      But I was under seventy - and saw something. Khrushchov promised quick communism and the transformation of the United States into a maize republic with an excellent jazz band. It didn’t work out. Brezhnev promised "even further growth and prosperity." Not fused. Then Andropov flickered with Chernenko, promised something there and threw off his bast shoes. Then Misha promised restructuring and acceleration - and we foolishly believed, but only rotting accelerated. Yeltsin appeared, and again promised bagels with poppy seeds and pies with onions, spoiled everything he could - and ordered him to live long and hard. And for two decades now, every day I hear: “Tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow ...”.
      And if only they promised ... No, we plowed. I gave my home state more than fifty patents without getting a penny. Work twelve hours? You are welcome. To repair tram tracks (at night), and to carry out scheduled work in the defense research institute during the day? Easily. After all, tomorrow will be great. Work where the number of poisons of the first hazard class exceeds the norm by hundreds of times? Well, if you have to ...
      Why am I doing this? But to what. I do not believe these promises. Life taught. Does anyone here still believe in future prosperity?

        I gave up literally last week. An aunt from the city executive committee came to my wife to work, so she checked some unnecessary magazines, made them introduce a couple more items that no one needed, there are not enough graphs in some, everything is wrong, everything is bad, picking a ton of orders (absolutely unnecessary for the common sense) meaning). Then I imagined how in the General Electric office a senior office manager from the municipality was looking for orders to transfer the loader Johnson from workshop 4 to 6, or in the same place the head of the supply department was turning in his hands an FBI order stating that now all offices should purchase bearings manufactured only in USE, and if they find something not from USE, then specialists from the NSA and the CIA will continue to deal with them, because they have no other business. laughing I listened to it all, remembered how a fire inspector came to me and ordered me events - at a cost of 10 times the damage from the theoretically worst fire in the history of my office and realized: NEVER we will live well, such aunts in the city executive committees - a whole army, and there are also regional and regional executive committees. And they ABSOLUTELY do not need you to do something useful, necessary, they need MAGAZINES in form and with the necessary graphs.
        And so I made a decision. Children must learn 2 languages ​​in any way, get a normal engineering specialty from the field of energy and get the hell out of it. There is no need to repeat the papkin path. You can’t endure forever. You can at least minify. I sat down.

        No, astepanov, we do not believe. But we, the older generation, without realizing it ourselves, are still in shock unloaded by psychologists and therefore are not capable of active political actions.
        Here are the facts.
        When the cruise liner, it seems, "Armavir" crashed, few of the rescued for a long time could not recover from the horror they had experienced, and some fled away from Novorossiysk on foot, wandering around the cities and villages. They were found and somehow returned to normal life. When a truck with explosives blew up in Rostov-on-Don, a man who arrived at work in the morning got out of the car, saw a giant crater at the site of his enterprise, and then found himself standing in the same place in the evening - such was the shock ...
        I remember how in 92 I got out from the inside of a giant military aircraft, and how I got the whole day from the airfield to the final destination, I don’t remember at all. Shock.
        Someone was made responsible for the family out of the shock of breaking the country, someone turned out to have a strong psyche. But many of those who, unable to cope with the situation, drank too much, became homeless, went to crime, died ...
        We are KNOWLEDGE what noodles are and how they are made. But we are a shocked generation. Our general psychological fatigue is huge and does not create the prerequisites for action.
        And the Kremlin is well aware of this. Therefore, noodles are made in the expectation that it will conveniently lie on the ears of younger generations who have not passed through hell.
        Judging by the behavior of some visitors to the VO site, apparently, lies down. Manufacturers have great experience. Since the days of Aristophanes, from the theater.

          That generation shock ---- yes. But not only that. The decline in fertility in the post-Soviet space speaks of national humiliation. Like some other features ....

            Why not believe? You believe that the omnipotent Bear, with an evil state fool, is pushing sticks into the wheels of good and sweet Pu with all his might. And Pu can't do anything about it. Although in 2004, no one bothered him to remove Misha 2%, who was, like Be, in share with the powers that be. Prior to that, he knocked Birch from a perch (a personality even more odious than Kasyanov, and much stronger), and at the same time Khodora also sent mittens to darn into the zone. So there is much more reason to believe in Putin’s omnipotence than to believe that he is white, fluffy and infallible.

          In principle, they are both two boots of steam. But Medvedev is much dumber and less loyal to Russia, unlike Putin. And there is a reason for this. LADY has where to escape and where to take refuge.

          So, for example, Medvedev, as chairman of the government of the Russian Federation, in 2011 wanted to get a second citizenship - namely, Israel. In world practice, this is generally nonsense!

          As for the transfer of the Kuril Islands to Japan allegedly under the 1956 Declaration between the USSR and Japan, Abe now reassures Japanese nationalists that Japan only has to wait.
          Like, Japan should only now wait for the moment when Putin’s term expires and DAM will again become president of the Russian Federation. What is more, it will be much easier to agree with Medvedev on the transfer by Russia of the Kuril Islands to Russia.

          And so - yes! The oligarchs are at the top of the power of the Russian Federation, and the dictatorship of the bourgeoisie is carried out in the country. GDP is divorcing among them.

        Surely there is, if you look. In 1999, no one knew Putin either. And in 96 they reasoned about the same: "Is there a worthy candidate to replace Yeltsin?" And they voted for EBNa. And after a couple of years he awarded the country with a terrible default. I had to call Primakov and Maslyukov to rake them. Hence, even then there was a worthy candidate, for the time being pushed into the shadows. And now, I'm sure there will be such a candidate.

    Everything is mixed in one heap. Politics is a continuation of the economy. In order to bring the country out of "stagnation", its economy should be centralized according to a military scenario, and the West is doing everything to make this happen. The stronger is external aggression, no matter what , the stronger the power. This is a simple historical law that the West for some reason ignores. All the great empires were falling apart from the inside. The Yankees say we won the Cold War! But nifiga! The Russian Empire, you can call it differently, Muscovy, Russia, the USSR is not the essence importantly, carried out an internal regrouping. Threw off the freeloaders and conducts a concentration of forces. For her opponents it always ended the same way and this can be expressed in one question that the British Queen asked U. Cherchel in April 45

      "Thucydides' trap
      Graham Allison: When a rapidly growing rival power challenges the power of power, adversity comes. In 11 out of 15 cases where this happened in the last 500 years, the result was war. The great Greek historian Thucydides identified these structural tensions as the main cause of the war between Athens and Sparta. He is often quoted as saying "The rise of Athens and the fear caused by this rise in Sparta made war inevitable."
      In the program "Big Game" 9 from 15 09 19) Graham Allison answered questions (from 20 28 minutes of video)

    THINKING OUT LOUD. The dawn of Russia - even a question mark brings a smile ... A smile of disbelief that such a "dawn" will come here. Forgive me for the pessimistic optimism !!! Economists should "rule" in the economy, politicians - in the state. In the Russian Federation, economists rule in the state under the leadership of two "lawyers"))) Therefore, economists save wherever possible, but here you can save only by increasing the growth of the population's well-being ... On the state apparatus, it is impossible (officials understood this and began multiply), on the army, too (the experience of such savings was in 2008, when even small Georgia allowed itself to attack the Russian peacekeepers, count on Russia, in South Ossetia), on the income of the oligarchs - it also does not work (these "patriots" run away with their own " loot "towards foggy Albion). So economists save on the population. But our country is big - we cannot do without governors. But what do the "rulers" of their governors make to think about? Are you thinking about how to make life better for the population living in the provinces by increasing their standard of living? There is no main indicator of the "success of the governor" - how many foreign investments he attracted to the region, and so that the lion's share of these foreign investments "settled" in the capital. And the capital is one of the "offices" of the American firm called "Globolization". And the "office plankton" always lives better than other strata of the population until it is eaten by a "whale" passing by ... But every "plankton" firmly believes that, because of his personal "importance" in the ecological chain, the "whale" will not touch him , therefore they huddle around the "foraging grounds", forming flocks of the EP type - "United Crustaceans"))) Naively believing that if not for them, then all the "whales" died ... This is how we live ... I really don't know how to say correctly: whether from dusk to dawn, or from dawn to dusk ???? Although the "result" does not change from changing the places of the terms!

              Look for production, not for the population.
              Konstantin Babkin, chairman of the board of directors of the Rosagromash association, which includes the Rostselmash Combine Plant, published on his Livejournal page an answer to Vladimir Putin to his question - why does Rostselmash not transfer tractor production from Canada to Russia. The businessman gave a full alignment, which was clearly not in Russia's favor. 1. The average salary of a highly skilled worker (welder or assembler) in Rostov-on-Don is 67-69% of the Canadian worker in Winnipeg. But at the same time in Canada, the payment to the pension fund is 3,5 times lower and the social insurance fees are 2 times lower. In fact, at 1, the ruble of salary in Russia must pay taxes on the 81 penny, and in Canada only 72 pennies. In addition, in Canada, the value added tax is 12% (against 18% in Russia). 2. Electricity tariffs in Canada for industrial enterprises are about 1,7 rubles per kW ($ 0,055). In Russia - 2,2 times higher - 3,7 rubles. That is, the tractor plant’s electricity costs when it is transferred to Russia will increase by $ 2,1 million 3. Growth in freight costs of similar production in Russia will amount to $ 4,2 million, and taking into account the cost of paying for services of natural monopolies, it will amount to $ 5,6 million per year. 4. A key factor in business development is the cost of loans. In Canada, interest rates on loans are 5,1 times lower. For the Canadian and Russian tractor plants, the difference is $ 14,4 million (3,5 million against 17,9 million). 5. The biggest article is taxes. A factory located in Winnipeg pays $ 26,1 million less in taxes than its counterpart in Rostov. 6. Even the costs of guarding the plant in the Rostov region will be about $ 1,05 million per year, which is $ 0,898 million higher than now at the Canadian plant. 4 man is used to protect the Winnipeg plant, and 150 is needed to protect the Russian plant. In addition, Babkin cited examples of powerful state support for manufacturers in Canada, in particular, various programs to offset the costs of energy conservation, the development of innovations, investments in staff training, and much more. Of the Russian advantages, the businessman singles out only lower wages for workers and the cost of gas, the difference in which is not so obvious.

                I won’t tell you exactly. It seems that in Russia and Canada, comparable electricity prices.
                In China, more expensive and no one complains

    USA is the largest investor in the Russian Federation

    Invest - leave without cover, without clothes. In (lat.) - without. Vestire (lat.) - to dress, cover.
    With the economic weakness of the Russian majority, created by privatization (privatization - privation (lat.) - deprivation, deliverance) and supported by all sorts of "optimizations", ups and downs are impossible.

    The main question, Steiner believes, is whether Putin will be able to overcome the "sastoi".

    Stagnation is a deliberate result of the "elite's" activities, not an unexpected problem.

    39,5 billion dollars - all investments. It is interesting to recall what they have for that kind of money. 49% of Sberbank in the aggregate, control of the aluminum industry ... - you can continue and not continue.
    39,5 billion dollars how many years? with the flight of capital from Russia annually at 120 billion dollars?
    Author, are you laughing? "The decline of America? The dawn of Russia?" You roll it up somehow uncertainly, you don't finish talking a lot ...

          Sir, to offend the opponent who asked a simple and direct question - meanness and cowardice. And the minus people - you can see the same field of berries with you - are not used to thinking.
          Once again the question: can you confirm your words with facts (but not with speculation and far-fetched "arguments")? Or did you have enough courage to blur out in the comments, and explain your statement - the veins are shaking? I think it's not about the beads, but you understand that they made a puddle on the floor, and pride does not allow to admit.

            so that there are no empty copy-paste of dubious texts from liberal newspapers, we clarify what is control over the activities of a company - a joint-stock company
            This is the ability to determine the results of voting at the annual general meetings of company shareholders. Any person or group of people who own more than 50% of the company's ordinary voting shares can effectively control the company

Read his comments in the account - one idle chatter on political topics. Why he rubs on in - is not clear. I would crawl to my like-minded people on Rain. And all the rest would be captured, who made a bird's hubbub here

    Only gold reserves of Russia exceeded $ 520 billion. Where does this data come from:
    Foreign exchange and gold reserves, reserves at the National Reserve Fund, budget surpluses and other reserves account for 16,2 percent of GDP (about $ 270 billion), according to the CBR.
    . What has already been stolen, drank and paid tribute? Doubling of GDP in 5 years by 2007? year, sort of. Here is a doubling of prices every 5 years, with 4-6% inflation, this is a fact. PS It would be better to consider why and for whom Medvedev cancels a pile of Soviet laws and state standards. The USSR ends de jure, the deadline is coming out. A year later, in a year and the current Constitution of the RSFSR will be abolished and the UN will begin to re-enter.

    I didn’t even read nonsense, but some kind of paranoid nonsense. It already smells not of mushroom mushrooms for dinner, but of synthetic drugs. How can this be published at all? Compare the subcolony that sells raw materials and then gives money to the one who buys the raw materials and the Empire.

      Yes, it's time to change the alignment. The state has quietly turned into a commercial structure with all the costs of such an institution - theft, concealment of income, nepotism, hooking up, skimping on official duties, incompetence and, most importantly, with a contemptuous attitude towards the people - their employer. It would seem unambiguous to dismiss. How to dismiss? If somehow it so imperceptibly happened that the state structure, being privatized, became independent from the employer. It's time to officially refuse services and announce: "We will hire the state. Do not offer second-hand!"

    A collection of pessimists.
    In my opinion, not everything is so bad. Just look at car manufacturing. Russia has learned to make cars! The same Lada Vesta is just a cool car. GAZ rose well. Aviation industry.
    Yes, a lot of things got better. Cities what beautiful steel!
    As for salaries, of course, not very, but for the most part the merit of the dollar.
    In Russia there is no intelligible economic policy, only slogans. What prevents, for example, the authorities from restricting exports to duties on, say, wheat, oil, gas. To make it profitable to sell them inside Russia, and not just abroad. Therefore, our prices rise to world prices. Who wants to sell their own, domestically, at a cheap price?

    Nothing, soon it will be even more fun!
    We live in a country whose bins are bursting with money (the NWF is crammed even more than the IMF requires).
    Such is the paradox of the impoverished people in the richest country, and the living elite, which makes up less than 1% of the population of the whole country.

    NWF
    "designed to become part of a sustainable mechanism for providing pensions to citizens of Russia"
    as indicated on the website of the Ministry of Finance, now it has changed its function - at the moment, our NWF provides the printing press of the US Federal Reserve, supports the Euro (60 yards of euro from our NWF are in France, tens of yards $ in the USA, etc.).

    Our government has been pumping ALL extra profits over the hill for decades, and people are being blown into the ears about the need to raise the retirement age.
    Raised, what's next?
    It turned out that a huge mass of people would be without work.
    On the blue eye, these ghouls declare that it is necessary to shorten the working week in order to take care of the people.
    But even in the remote villages they understand why this is done, in such a dull way, the colonial government is trying to smash the new masses of the unemployed in old jobs.

    Frozen and cut the funded part of the pensions, now they have swung at the insurance - they are throwing the vile idea into the people about the need to save for retirement on their own and deposit money from poor salaries into personal pension accounts.
    Yeah, they did.
    At first they campaigned for the funded component, then it turned out that these funds were reduced and froze.
