What is the strength, Vladimir Vladimirovich?

Project "ZZ". Putin’s power is not at all as strong as he himself believes, Garry Kasparov writes in the overseas press. The trouble is that Western leaders forgive him. Take even Trump with Macron - both continually cajole the Kremlin boss! But how not to cajole? Analyst D. Bechev in the influential journal Foreign Policy recalls that V.V.P. strong in his trolling. As soon as Washington quarrels with whom, Moscow extends an outcast hand of friendship. Putin’s geopolitical humor and there’s nothing to be done about it!




Do not forgive Putin


В Washington Post an article by Garry Kasparov, chairman of the Renew Democracy Initiative.

Mr. Kasparov believes that on 8 of September, the Russian elections to local authorities did not go the way laid by President Vladimir Putin. He (Putin) didn’t really like it: after all, “Putin’s United Russia party has lost seats throughout the country, especially in Moscow,” notes Kasparov. And four days later, Putin "launched the largest security operation in his twenty-year rule." “The raids were carried out in forty-three cities across Russia,” the author of the article says. “The police broke into the offices and homes of opposition groups and activists, confiscating documents, computers, and even coffee machines.”

Having outlined these scenes, the publicist concluded. In his opinion, this demonstration of power testifies: Putin’s power in Russia is not as strong as he (Putin) shows. Putin has gone from propaganda “to a campaign of violence,” Kasparov notes.

Putin’s popularity has already fallen. Economic stagnation in Russia is exacerbated by Western sanctions caused by the "war against Ukraine."



“Whenever Putin is confronted with internal strife, he turns his gaze abroad,” Kasparov points out. A problem is being formulated against which Putin can "portray himself as a brave defender of the homeland." Meanwhile, Kasparov is convinced, "an increasing number of Russians are now openly questioning his deadly and costly adventures in Syria and Ukraine." In the current dangerous confrontation between Saudi Arabia and Iran, “Putin will be happy to rekindle the flames of the conflict, knowing that it will raise the price of oil,” the author remarks in passing. This is a blessing "for the oil-dependent Russian economy and for his [Putin] retention of power."

Kasparov then highlights a certain oddity: despite the fact that Putin’s position is becoming “more and more unstable," the leaders of the "free world", namely President Trump and President Macron, throw Putin a "life buoy".

“Inexplicable cajoing” by Trump Putin is too well known. France, led by Macron, "increased trade with Russia despite sanctions, and Macron recently repeated Trump's words, expressing support for Russia’s return to the group of leading industrialized countries." A similar idea confuses Kasparov (he writes just that). Indeed, Russia, he reminds Trump and Macron, was expelled from the Group of Eight in the 2014 year “for the invasion and annexation of Crimea, the Ukrainian peninsula that remains under Russian rule”!

Kasparov calls such a geopolitical strategy "all-forgiveness." And when the West once again “forgives” Putin, Putin immediately uses the message and shows the Russian elites that he is still a “big man”.

“Pacification” of Putin, Kasparov continues, gives him a clear signal: there are no reasons to turn off the chosen path.



Peacemaker with humor


Not only is Putin pacified, but he is pacified. Yes, and with humor. This is told by Dimitar Bechev in "Foreign Policy".

What do you think of Russian President Vladimir Putin? That question is being asked by Mr. Bechev. No matter what they think, this person has an “ironic sense of humor." Trolling is his distinctive feature!

What arguments does Bechev put forward in favor of his point of view?

He gives examples.

As Putin hinted very recently, on 16 of September, of Saudi Arabia, if she only wants to protect herself, a wise decision should be made and the example of Iran and Turkey, which bought the Russian air defense systems, should be followed. C-300 and C-400, according to Putin, can protect any infrastructure of Saudi Arabia from any attacks. In essence, the Saudis only had to make a choice. Between C-300 and C-400.

Thanks to military intervention in the Syrian war, Russia is seen in the Middle East as an influential player. The Kremlin’s reaction to the attacks on Saudi Aramco’s oil infrastructure perfectly illustrates Moscow’s new role in the region.

And Russia does not have a “side” in the Iran-Saudi confrontation. The essence of Putin’s policy is to try to have good relations with everyone: with the Iranians and their worst enemies - Saudi Arabia and Israel, as well as with Turkey and the Kurds, with the Bashar al-Assad regime in Damascus and its opponents. As Bechev notes, Russia “does not play in local sheriffs” and “avoids alien quarrels”, seeking “to obtain geopolitical and commercial benefits without excessive risks”.

This behavior "sharply contrasts" with the actions of the United States, which remain the hegemon in the Middle East and therefore "bear the costs of maintaining order."

And if Putin was joking in Ankara, then only half. In the end, the Egyptian government, funded by Saudi Arabia, has just signed a $ 2 billion contract - a contract to buy fifty Russian MiG-35 fighters. “Gulf money is already pouring into the treasury of Russia,” says Bechev.

Putin is also considered a peacemaker in Yemen.

And with Iran everything is not bad: despite the ongoing rapprochement between Moscow and Riyadh, Iran remains the "chosen Russian partner." The interests of the two countries sometimes do not coincide, but diplomatic, defense and trade ties with Tehran are better than ever. Moreover, together with the Europeans, Russia is the guarantor of Iran’s nuclear deal.

Washington’s current warlike rhetoric against Iran is likely to bring Moscow and Tehran closer. “Of course,” the author notes, “if tensions get out of control and the United States starts a war against Iran, the Russians will stand by. However, given the Trump administration’s tendency to rattle weaponsand then back off, then I must say: Putin may well take another opportunity to raise his image of a rising star in the Middle East. ”

* * *


The political opposition, who prefers the overseas leaflet The Washington Post, to his native newspaper Pravda, calculated the source of Putin’s strength. An analyst from Foreign Policy assented him.

Trump should be missed somewhere - Putin is right there. And then Trump and Comrade Putin, hurrying to the rescue of Macron’s help, have to cajole until he pierced the entire Middle East with his missile defense, like a map with pins.

Putin was once criticized in the West: they say his strategy is passive, he only responds to attacks.

Excuse me, why does he need an active strategy? If by activity we mean the phrase “break firewood”, then let the White House guest do this.

      But it turns out that Putin is strong! It is not surprising that the long-term transmission of Dom-2, where everyone just does what they’ll do each other, is one of the most popular programs on Russian TV. But there are jokes for black PR, and the head of the country for what it does? Maybe in this form, he decided to show his patriotism?

      And yet I would like to hear more examples of this trolling itself and how it really helped Russia. If we consider under trolling, the US proposal to sell Russian hypersound, a threat to the Turks about tomatoes, and to Ukrainians - which will not offend the Russians in the Donbass, then this is some kind of dubious trolling. And I do not know more successful examples.

        The strongest foreign policy is when other, weaker countries are drawn to the country, trying to become its satellite, they see in it a defender against the aggression of a predator country. To do this, you need to be an economically powerful, well-armed power.
        Is that Russia?
        Well, so far it is unlikely.
        Putin just picks up foreign policy crumbs from the table of the USA and the European Union, forgiving the USSR debts in the amount of hundreds of billions of dollars and not receiving in return the gratitude and devotion from the former borrowers; then, tearing off funds from their own not very well-fed population to provide free aid to the former Soviet republics, and they stubbornly glance in the direction of China and the United States, then gently erasing with a handkerchief the spit from Turkey, and then there is much more that can be listed.
        I agree - it's hard to be president!
        It is hard to be a trolling president in foreign policy if you are zero in domestic.
        And it doesn’t matter for what reason this grandiose zero was drawn, either from a lack of authority, or from the fact that a small handful of truly powerful people are pushing and trolling you inside the country.
        But having an atomic bomb in your pocket, you can troll. Including - own population.

    Mdaaa ... if Putin were criticized by a respected person, then there would be a reason for him to assent. But when Putin is criticized by such "kavnyuks" as Navalny and Kasparov, the desire to support them disappears! We must not forget that apart from Putin, Medvedev, Gref and other "sharashka", there is Russia, there is the Russian nation! Putin's regime can be presented with many "minuses" in domestic politics, economics, legislation ... but, after all, there are "pluses" referring to the sovereignty of the state, its defense capability, Russia's influence on the international "sphere" ... (you can, of course, belittle this influence ... criticize it ... but it is there and it will not be possible to deny it ...)! Replacing Putin would be good, but by whom ??? . I don't trust the current "non-systemic" opposition! To a large extent, it is destructive! A significant part of the "oppositionists" are "masters of yelling" down with Putin, down with the Putin regime ... " but is not able to put forward constructive, concrete proposals! "We will destroy the whole world of violence, and then ..." And then what? What in return? What did Russia destroyed in 1917 cost? the world and its restoration? Where is the guarantee that one type of violence will not be replaced by another ...? There is a phrase that deserves thought: "The people make the revolution, but scoundrels and swindlers use its fruits"! Have you really forgotten the "revolution" of 1990-93? ? What did the people want and what did they really get? What did he lose? Are you satisfied with the results of that "victorious revolution"? Who will lead the state after the removal of the current government? Navalny and Kasparov? Those "scoundrels and scammers" mentioned by the famous phrase !? I am far from sure that such a group will "improve" the economy and legislation in the country, but I am sure that the country's sovereignty and defense capability will suffer ... Russia will not only remain a country of poor people and an undeveloped economy, a "raw material appendage"; but it will become a "bedding country" for the US, EU, with a foreign policy: "what do you want? "! Not in Russia now is the "Bolshevik party" that could take power in the country and keep the country from further collapse! So far, what I see in the present tense is one evolutionary path! But evolution evolution is different! There is a slow, there is a faster ... The fact that more and more people boldly come out with protests (constructive!) Is good! In the elections, "edrosov" and other similar "shushara" are "rolled" - great! Massive popular protests against flagrant political persecution (illegal ...) of constructive opposition, illegal actions of "law enforcement" bodies (Ivan Golunov!), Decisions of the "supreme" government and regional "governments" that infringe on the interests of the people - great! The only trouble is: will the people have enough natural wisdom, experience, education, ingenuity to separate the "grain from the chaff"? In order not to allow (or at least make it difficult) "scoundrels and swindlers" to take advantage of the protest activity of the people! I'm not sure about that! On YouTube, for example, I had to repeatedly meet "lascivious speakers" and read numerous comments in support of them ...

        Was it Putin's case? First of all, he took advantage of EBN! Another popular phrase: "liberals" came to power ... But will WE know who actually "came to power"? Putin took advantage of it? Well, to some extent you can say: yes, I used it ... afterwards. But do not forget that Putin is someone's "labor resource", someone has put "in office"! Maybe someday it will become clear who actually seized power, and therefore Russia ... and whose servants: Putin, and the notorious "liberals" ...

              You should think first of all for yourself .. So in vain you forgive ..

              That was a specific question. They are cleared, which means that we therefore did not recognize these unknown heroes.

              They answered you specifically .. That's the way it is !!
              UUUU what a bloodthirsty Terran! Oooo, Putin!

              And then the bloodthirsty ?? Do you think that competitors are killed when you are already in a political race with them .. But Putin may not be bloodthirsty ..
              He's just not stupid !! He put Bear on the prime minister’s chair .. the whole people spit .. but no one touches the bear and doesn’t clean .. And why ?? You didn’t think again .. but in vain .. Because it’s convenient when, against the background of the same prime minister, the president looks more worthy .. Even if both do nothing ..
              But you can still hold a meeting for the look .. and even scold the Bear .. And you can also scold some Mutko .. etc. The people hate all these faces .. and Putin is happy with them here ... That's where - UUUUU .. And all these friends graze in power for decades, everyone knows their place .. starting from the Bear, ending with Zhirik .. You’re a lot of new do you see people there ?? Or are you expecting some kind of comrade to appear .. ready to fight corruption, boost the economy .. and they put him in Medvedev’s place, right ?? And then he begins to compete with Putin ??)
              Putin himself from where and how got out, remember first .. And when did the people know about him at all !!
              Six months before the appointment, there was no rumor or spirit about him ..
              And if somewhere now an honest person appears on the sidelines, he will be weeded out at an early stage .. And they don’t come there from the street, but all “their own” ..
              So .. cleaned up .. and ironed !!

              I want to laugh when the "genius of economics" Grudinin is being moved here.

      Non-systemic liberals (except for the systemic liberals from the ED) have no support whatsoever. There is nothing to worry about here. The Communists are a systemic and even rather tame opposition. The current government has done everything to "replace Putin with no one." There is no need to fall for the bait, because now it will always be so that "with all the wealth of choice there is no other alternative" as long as ED is in power.

      By analogy, yes, Putin is a thief, but this is our thief ..))

      It is on this that Putin remains in power !! That those who do not like him are "forced" to support .. fearing "kavnyuk" ..

      We must not forget that apart from Putin, Medvedev, Gref and other "sharashka", there is Russia, there is the Russian nation!

      Nobody seemed to offend the Russian nation in the article .. This is purely about Putin ..

      there are also "pluses" referring to the sovereignty of the state, its defense capability, and Russia's influence on the international "sphere."
      And who needs it ?? This is only necessary for Putin and his friends ..

      And for the people it is akin to how a hard worker from a factory hires a personal security guard for half of his own salary .. Immediately appears "sovereignty, defense and influence" in a dispute with drinking companions ..
      Are pensioners supposed to be glad that they are being protected, and for this they have forced them to work another 5 years ?? After all, it’s funny ..
      That's really why these "pluses" should be mentioned .. Although, it's not for nothing that you put them in quotes ..

      So far, what I see in the present tense is one evolutionary path!

      But I see only the revolutionary path .. For this abomination itself will not go anywhere, and its appetites will not decrease .. As a result of evolution, the gap between the rich and the poor will only grow ..

    The essence of Putin’s policy is to try to be on good terms with everyone:

    Such a rac-sack, but the position is very useful in many respects, in such unstable regions.
    The political opposition, who prefers the overseas leaflet The Washington Post, to his native newspaper Pravda, calculated the source of Putin’s strength. An analyst from Foreign Policy assented him.

    When the Editor-in-Chief writes articles, it is worthwhile to carefully reread them "with a pencil".
    What is the strength of explosives?
    In his ability to hold a punch?
    Probably - this is necessary.
    But if it was only about the BB itself.
    And if we are talking about the country, which he leads since 2000?

    In the martial arts, it is not how you hold the punch that is more valuable, but the ability to make the opponent "hit in the air".
    Those. prediction of where the enemy is going to strike, until the last moment show that you will be in this place, and exactly at the moment when the strike is delivered, go to the side.

    Politics is the same martial art.
    Offer the "partner" to beat himself, make him concentrate his efforts, and then watch how he wasted his efforts.

    But this cannot go on forever.
    Ring or tatami have borders.
    You cannot marry them.
    And the opponent is not one, but several.
    And the rules, the organizers of the battle, change during the battle.
    How to win?
    Or, just to survive?

    The answer is clear.
    It is necessary to choose one from the pack and "knock" out of the fight.
    It is necessary to choose those who, through their frenzy, create the most problems.

    Let's call a spade a spade.
    There is a semi-state - Poland.
    There is a non-state - Ukraine.
    Here we have to start with them.
    Must IT WAS start off!

    Kasparov's opinion is of course "strength". This surname alone already arouses certain feelings towards someone who has been throwing mud at Russia from abroad for many years and flashing at the Baltic gatherings (sabbaths) of the Russian liberal handshake party. Where direct calls for the overthrow of power, the fragmentation of Russia and the transfer of control powers to the Americans are loudly voiced.

And because everyone in Russia does not respect him, from the liberal to the communist. But if Kasparov does not like Putin and we do not love Putin, then what? are we together with Kasparov? That is precisely so that we ask ourselves such a convenient question for Putin and the bucket and write this article. Look at the root.

    Yes, I can understand the dissatisfaction of colleagues with my top post. In the 90s, our army was in terrible condition, and many regular visitors to the VO site were military and retirees, and they see that Putin has done a lot for the army and, most importantly, raised its prestige to the extent that circumstances allowed it and the team of government managers he had assembled. And therefore many visitors to the site are grateful to Putin as commander in chief for this. For all their criticality in certain issues, they see Putin as the savior of the army, and they are unpleasant when someone speaks impartially of him. They feel humiliated. And they feel the same way when someone mockingly speaks of Putin’s foreign policy, in which, as they think, he is quite strong. Indeed, in this case, they subconsciously associate Putin with Russia ...
    But my question is: did Putin assemble a team of government executives that I mentioned a little higher? Or is she someone imputed to him initially, and he can say that he has no other team for us? And it’s really bad if he picked up the team himself. This gathering of self-righteous, cunning mediocrity and opportunists is convenient for him with the gratitude that it should feel for him as a benefactor. Over the years, Putin has studied this bunch, and knows how to manage it. But I also studied them. And I see that it’s not circumstances - the tail spins the dog, but the gratitude there is zero. These people have already forgotten that they were no one and would have remained so if they had not entered the state managerial cage. They are completely wispy and, by now, have been assured that Putin should be grateful to them that they tolerate him. And for some reason it seems to me that his foreign policy steps, not always successful, are dictated not so much by political expediency, but by the desire to appease the worried vanity.
    For example, I open the news today, and there is a message about the forthcoming dismissal in the next month, 51, 6 thousand workers - as Kommersant explained, the business no longer pulls their earnings. But what is the official motivation! Just listen: we need money for national projects ...
    Is this not a spit in the face of the benefactor, not a mockery, not an open mockery of the person who suggested these very national projects? Even in my imagination, such a justification for the dismissals could not have crossed my mind. Which side?
    But it’s really bad if everything is as it was said.
