The State Duma responded to Russia's position in the Western rating of "power"

104

The State Duma commented on the results of the rating, according to which the Russian Federation ranks second in the world in power and influence. The list on the eve was compiled by the US edition of USNews.


Russia today returned to protecting national interests in the international arena, retains a certain economic potential for influencing world processes ... Of course, it would be important to maintain this position of Russia in the top three leading powers

- concluded the first deputy chairman of the State Duma Committee on Foreign Affairs Dmitry Novikov. His words are cited by RT.

According to the US News ranking, the five most powerful countries in the world are the United States, Russia, China, Germany and the United Kingdom. Next in descending order are France, Japan, Israel, Saudi Arabia and South Korea.

When compiling this list, a number of indicators were taken into account. In particular, the impact on global politics and the economy, presence in the information space.

It is noteworthy that the same publication has a “rating of the best countries”, where the first three are Switzerland, Japan and Canada, and the United States is only in eighth place. The Russian Federation in this list was located at 24 place, between the UAE and Thailand.

      "Russia is the second country in the world after the United States in terms of international influence. And this is the opinion of the authoritative American publication USNews. The experts took into account the state of the economy, political and military power, the personality of the leaders. Plus, there was also participation in international alliances."
      On the personalities of leaders and military power, they got prize-winners. For the time being, economics unfortunately are far behind the same 10th place. feel

            This is not about the peasants, much less about the French kings.
            The thing is that many on top do not care deeply for those who are below.

            Tell me, weren't the barons allowed to walk "in one of the residences of the French kings"? laughing

                Vladimir16 he did not correctly reproduce the rhyme, there was: "King Louis loved to walk in the old park of Fontainebleau, and that the peasant was starving, the monarch was ..." in general, did not care ..
                There is as much cynicism in this rhyme as there is humor in your post ... That is zero.
                Regarding starving or non-starving peasants, "If they don't have bread, let them eat cakes!" Attributed to Marie-Antoinette, wife of Louis (Louis) XVI ... so that "that many from above do not care deeply about those who are below" is true.
                Of course, the fact that Dmitry Novikov, the first deputy chairman of the State Duma’s Committee on Foreign Affairs, is following the publications of the USNews, rather than wasting time trying to solve sudoku and watching social networks inspires cautious optimism.
                And as far as this rating reflects reality, this is a question for discussion, I agree that reinforcing military power and the diplomatic influence of the economic component would give us completely different positions than those that are at the moment.

                  All these statements are a classic example of cynicism.
                  Just do not talk about the cynicism of representatives of the current government. Yes he is. It manifests itself under any authority. Remember the Novocherkassk shooting of 1962 in the USSR. Then, in response to the demands of the workers, the director of the plant Boris Kurochkin, to the replica of one of the workers: “Children don’t see meat or milk,” he said to the newcomers: “Nothing, you’ll kill yourself on pies with liver!”
                  The Soviet nomenclature also showed cynicism towards the common people, as did the royal.

                    In citing famous historical expressions, there is no cynicism, especially once again I will single out the major basic message Vladimir: many on top do not care deeply for those who are below. What manifested it here: Vladimir "cynicism"? But was there any cynicism in the above statements .. So attributed to Marie Antoinette or according to Rousseau, this phrase was uttered by a young French princess, so they could blurt out and naivete, but the plant director Boris Kurochkin, most likely knew about the existing problems and here is his can be accused of cynicism.

          All ratings are calculated for some purpose desired by those who consider. Do not be very upset! The influence of Russia as an energy superpower on the world economy is much more significant than all those who sell diapers (even cars) for a similar amount.

              See export articles if you are exclusively interested in it! And the indicator of production is not at all equal to export, but includes it. Offhand - cars, incl. Kamaz; trams, agricultural machinery, medicines, various metals (processing from ore); gold jewelry, amphibian aircraft, underwater vehicles, medical robots, etc. and import has changed a lot - more raw materials and billets, and less finished products!

        If we compare various ratings of the economic power of countries, then Russia "floats" in them between the 3rd and 11th places. All of these ratings are relatively inflated. The calculation methods are different, the internal purchasing power of currencies is different. etc. The annual IMF rating, which takes into account PPP and the volume of "gray", that is, the economic activity of companies and enterprises evading taxes, the economy, puts Russia in 4th place along with Japan, excluding the "gray" economy in 6th place, after Germany. Macroeconomist, statistician, academician of MAM M.L. Khazin. states that the real GDP of Russia is about $ 8 trillion, while the real GDP of the United States, calculated using the same methodology, is not 19 trillion. and only $ 14 trillion.
        In general, Russia is inferior to the USSR, in comparison with the US economy. The USSR’s GDP in the best years was 80% of the US, but the current Russian 55% of US GDP wasn’t sneezed either.

        This influence is not quite Russia, as a state (although its size gives an advantage in many matters), but our political and financial elite.
        And if you look closely, then on the issue of economics we are not even in the top five. On the issue of medicine, social programs are also not in the forefront. By the level of salaries, and pensions generally keep quiet.
        So what are we, as a state, the best? The army ... and then, only the land part and especially the Strategic Missile Forces section. But even the rearmament of our army is crooked for all legs and arms. The Navy is aging and decrepit, the VKS also requires special attention, which is absent, starting from schools and ending with the terms of equipping with new equipment. The satellite constellation is also not shaky and swath. There are some gaps in all of this, but at the same rate, we will be updating the fleet a hundred years ago.

It must be self-sufficient, balanced in order to provide people with a good standard of living, development and defense of the state, and not profit by any means. Many people forget that under capitalism (from crisis to crisis), the higher you climb, the more you fall (the richer you are, the more you lose). What's the use, from the huge economies of China, the USA, South Korea, Japan, when the next Black Thursday breaks out, and these economies fly from the high bell tower. They are now on horseback (and they are already moaning), let's see what happens in a year or two. Moreover, this has happened in our world more than once.

    The main potential of ANY country is its CITIZENS !!!

      But the MFC is always full of people who want to be citizens of the Russian Federation.

            Now they provide services, and what grows up should not concern anyone.

              It depends a lot on the teachers. I went to school with several political systems, as they say, before and after, the difference is small with what is now.
              Teenagers are now far from the ones that were five, ten, twenty, thirty years ago.
              Because the world does not stand still, constantly evolving. Therefore, the value system of today's adolescents is different than the one you are used to. Therefore, it seems from the height of past years and personal experience that something is wrong, and young people are degrading.
              But this is not so. Everything is normal with them.

              That teaching young people some skills is commendable; I personally would not begin to teach official skills.

    - level of education.
    - longevity.
    - The presence of a modern economy.
    - The willingness of citizens to sacrifice a lot for the sake of the country.
    With the latter, we have always been fine.
