What left 2019 in the history of world and domestic


Goes to history another year of our lives. Let's try to recall what significant things he brought, which will leave him in the history of world and domestic?


First about war and warriors


Since our publication is called "Military Review", it would be right to start with the military results of the outgoing year.

The great war did not happen, which is very good. Little wars did not end, which is very bad.

There were defeats, but there were victories. What is one grand breakthrough with the supply of Turkey to the Russian S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems!

A worldwide scandal, a slap in the face to the American leadership, a serious crack between the two NATO allies and a big victory for the Russian military industry: if NATO countries and US allies began to buy its products, it says a lot! Yes, and a new market seems to be found, and the market is attractive: Turkey is a wealthy country, it has a large army, the desire for permanent re-equipment and rearmament is also present.

In 2019, the U.S.-Russian Middle East and Shorter Range Missile Treaty (INF) was limited, limiting the deployment of missiles in Europe. This decision, in fact, was very symbolic, although the Americans did not particularly hide that they were conducting new developments for a long time. Nevertheless, the demonstrative termination of the Treaty confirmed the US course towards a new arms race - not hidden, but quite official.

Syria. Here are a few key events. Firstly, this is the beginning of the withdrawal of American troops. Donald Trump nevertheless achieved his goal, and for little, he did not give the Kurdish allies to be eaten by his opponent - the "Sultan" Erdogan.

In fact, the withdrawal of troops is a recognition of US powerlessness in this conflict. They made the porridge, but failed to eat. And rightly so. Leaving Syria, America recognizes that the Middle East direction is no longer the highest priority for it. And who is replacing? Russia and to a lesser extent Turkey, which did not hesitate and sent its troops into the border areas.


Secondly, terrorists continue to be crowded in all directions. In fact, it was the Russian armed forces in 2019 that allowed the Syrian government to return a significant part of the country to the control of Damascus.

There are also many positive aspects in domestic military policy: the Russian army continues to receive new weapons, but there are also fly in the ointment.

So, the tragedy in the military unit in Transbaikalia, where Private Shamsudinov shot eight colleagues, became a severe blow to the reputation of the army. It seemed that such excesses in the armed forces were over, but no, not everything was so smooth in our own army. Shoigu, of course, took duty measures: contract soldiers will go on guard for many days, only this is unlikely to affect the general order of the troops.

Big economic victories and big social defeats


There are several of them and almost all of them are in the field of transport and communications. First, the Power of Siberia gas pipeline was completed in 2019, through which blue fuel will flow to China. China is a very voluminous market for Russian gas.

Secondly, the Turkish Stream and Nord Stream 2 gas pipelines are almost complete. On SP-2 passions boiled all year. Whoever did not try to interfere with the Russian gas pipeline under the auspices of the USA, but in the end common sense won and even the Kingdom of Denmark surrendered, giving consent to the construction of the gas pipeline.

The Moscow-St. Petersburg M11 Neva High Speed ​​Road was officially opened on November 27, 2019. Now from Petersburg to Moscow it will be possible to get even faster. True, Russia cannot be reduced to two capitals and the gap between them. But here the government did not blunder.


As promised, they launched the movement of trains on the Crimean bridge. Now it will be possible to come to Simferopol and Sevastopol by train. The trains will leave for Crimea immediately from several large cities of Russia. For the peninsula, this is a huge plus in terms of economic development, construction of new infrastructure, attracting tourists and new residents.

But in the social sphere, not everything is going so well. On January 1, 2019, the notorious law came into force, providing for a phased increase in the retirement age. Ultimately, Russians will retire at 60 and 65. And this despite the fact that most Russian men barely cross the 65-year line and go to eternal rest, and many do not even live up to this age.

Pension reform is the toughest miscalculation of power, which brought her enormous image losses. No matter how economists try to explain the need to raise the retirement age for ordinary Russians, it is very difficult to do this, especially considering the growing social polarization and resistance to the introduction of a progressive taxation scale. Here will be a fat aunt from the federal department, who worked with papers, albeit in a shirt with epaulettes, to retire at 40, and not bad at the same time, and uncle works at work in his 64s. Right?

However, the pension reform did not cause any mass explosion of social indignation. The population did not go out onto the streets in droves. Is it good? Maybe yes, or maybe not, because it signals yet another very worrisome moment: sociologists write that a significant part of young people do not expect to live up to 60-65 years, and therefore are not interested in pension reform as such. Optimists, however, believe that they will be able to collect "retire" on their own, regardless of the state.

An increase in VAT from 18% to 20% will inevitably affect the increase in the cost of goods and services, since the entrepreneur will not miss his. And that too is not good. The population is buying less and cheaper anyway, because purchasing power is falling, and here, in this way, it’s also gotten a bit of money.


It turns out that at one pole is the Power of Siberia, Turkish Stream, Nord Stream 2, the sale of S-400 Turkey and victory in Syria, and at the other - non-gasified settlements, a poor population, early mortality. The presence of two children automatically transfers to the category of the poor even those people whose wages are very high by Russian standards. It seems that it is growing, Russia is developing, but for whom, if the basic layer of the population does not live well?

Another very troubling problem is the lack of a clear understanding among the people where and why our country is moving. No ideology, no development paradigm. Ura-patriotic slogans cannot be replaced by a real ideology and program, and the absence of a change of elites and blocked vertical elevators begin to strain even convinced patriots. No matter how effective the leader Vladimir Vladimirovich may be, there are limits to everything, including human life. And who is the successor? Where is he? Among whom and by what criteria should he be selected? Nobody can give a clear answer to these questions.

About scary and sad


Immediately a number of high-profile and extremely cynical crimes marked 2019, especially its second half. And this is not only the execution by ordinary soldiers of their colleagues in Transbaikalia. In Saratov, a 9-year-old girl was strangled who, by her misfortune, was walking past garages, where 35-year-old Mikhail Tuvatin, previously convicted, did not like something. This wild incident made many people talk about the revival of the death penalty, as well as the tragedy in the kindergarten in Naryan-Mar. There, over a six-year-old boy, the chronic alcoholic Denis Pozdeev cracked down.

In St. Petersburg, the 63-year-old assistant professor of the university, a brilliant scientist-historian and master of the Russian military-historical movement brutally cracked down on his 24-year-old girlfriend, dismembered her body and came across when trying to get rid of the remains of an unfortunate girl. What is this general insanity?

A bill on domestic violence has appeared in the Federation Council. It is highly controversial, since it implies increased state attention to the previously taboo family sphere. The family in Russia has always been considered a private affair, no one in a hurry and did not seek to get into the relationship of husband and wife, parents and children.

Now the situation may change. For example, categories for a protective order may be introduced that are new for Russia, which prohibit a home tyrant from approaching his victim, living with him on the same territory and even communicating by phone or the Internet.

The public, both Orthodox-conservative and feminist, was alarmed in earnest. To feminists, the bill seems too humane to domestic aggressors, and conservatives are convinced that it is aimed at destroying family values. Although what family values ​​can we talk about where one of the spouses systematically humiliates and harasses the other, do parents mock children or do old people become victims of obstruction of younger relatives?

By the way, Vladimir Putin said that he has a dual attitude to the bill, which means no less than its further development. After all, the president’s word in this case will be the main argument. And, of course, it will outweigh the opinions of representatives of the polar camps - liberal-feminist and Orthodox-conservative.

And a little about sad things. In 2019, several iconic people for our country did not become. The actors Vladimir Abramovich Etush, Elina Avraamovna Bystritskaya, Alexei Ivanovich Buldakov, directors Mark Anatolyevich Zakharov, Marlene Martynovich Khutsiev, George Nikolayevich Danelia, the scientist Zhores Ivanovich Alferov, cosmonauts Valery Fedorovich Bykovsky, Andrei Arkhipovich Leonov (singer) left.

Of the politicians, the most striking personalities who left this year are: Yuri Mikhailovich Luzhkov, Anatoly Ivanovich Lukyanov. The bright journalist Sergey Dorenko crashed on a motorcycle. This year, Alexei Alekseevich Kadochnikov, the founder of his own hand-to-hand combat system, passed away. The list could go on and on, but still our article is not an obituary. However, the departure of such iconic people could not be noted.

What will bring us the new year 2020, we still do not know. But we guess that he will be no less, but more intense, than the passing year. The world situation will remain tense, the socio-economic situation of the population will hardly become better. And most importantly, the question of building the future of our country, its ideology, who will take the helm after the departure of the incumbent president and whether the people will live better, remains open.

Happy New Year, dear readers!

        At the inner circle - too. Russian billionaires are record-breaking rich on a non-growing Russian economy. The most successful - Potanin, added $ 8,5 billion per year! But according to the law of communicating vessels, if some increase sharply, then of course it decreases in others. The answer to the eternal Nekrasovskoye: Who should live well in Russia? Obvious.

        No matter what the year is, I thank him for being alive and to some extent healthy. hi Well, with regard to the upcoming one, there is a special hope that he will not only be better, but will be able to correct some of the distortions of this year. How did this happen with pension reform. The fact that people did not take part in the demonstrations is what our people now have in their mentality. He was weaned from revolutions and riots, now he just looks with indifference his future. Communism does not shine there. That's for sure. hi

          Bessmertniy, well, you really are a pessimist! )).
          We will be optimistic!
          According to Yandex, over the past year, our billionaires have increased their combined fortune by $ 52,9 billion. This is a record of all previous years. The most successful of their billionaires - the co-owner of Norilsk Nickel Potanin also earned a record $ 8,5 billion!
          Doesn't that inspire you? laughing
          What if he takes it and invests these billions in national projects?!?
          Dream!

And tell me in what offshore and on which economies their billions work, so that I can really call them "ours" and love them like Brezhnev Honecker !? recourse I would also invest my billions of bucks about something worthwhile. However, I just can not understand why I do not have these billions, but they have !? request It seems that he has worked for more than 40 years, and has not overgrown with billions or millions. request

              You do not have these billions, Immortal, because your father was not a diplomat, like the billionaire Potanin, did not serve in the USSR Ministry of Foreign Affairs. I can only assume that while working in Turkey, papa established contacts between some Soviet leaders and offshore companies, where a part of the money allocated to African kings who headed the "progressive" regimes flowed away. That is the "party gold". Otherwise, how would a son rise so quickly?
              But it is, speculation.
              But if the success of Potanin does not please you, let us rejoice in the success of EP. In all the 2019 elections, EP, according to recent data, won 70% of the vote, which is 10% more than in the past.
              So forward to the victory of communism, if other “isms” do not defeat it on this endless path wassat

      Can this be considered normal? Here is what below?
      Real income has been declining for 5 years in a row.
      Gazprom barely keeps afloat and goes to sign any contracts with Ukraine.
      China threw gas and will now take several times less. This is despite the fact that in all likelihood we will drive him through the Power of Siberia at a loss, because the price of gas is stubbornly not announced, a military secret.
      Unique float drowned.
      Kuzya burned out.
      Accident in the White Sea.
      The accident with Losharik.
      SP-2 is stopped and there are no options to continue its construction yet.
      The only serial Su-57 crashed.
      Retirement age raised. Along with it are taxes with fines.
      Russian athletes have nothing to do in world sports. They kicked us out of it.

      Is this normal?
      Can you start to sing "all is well, beautiful marquise!"?

    The main thing is to prioritize correctly. The Turks were given loans to take the S-400. Credit out of habit can be written off. And that they quarreled there, the grandmother said in two.
    About the joint venture, the author forgot the last sanctions against Switzerland.
    About the bridge. For people who do not know the history of geography, it’s certainly a joy. And I still don’t understand why Crimea is more ours than Donbass.
    Most importantly, what have they done for the people? Or if you are interested in people, then immediately an American spy?

      A certain Mr. Volodin believes that no one: "There is Putin - there is Russia, There is no Putin - there is no Russia." Everything according to Saltykov-Shchedrin - the concepts of "Homeland" and "Your Excellency" are completely confused.

        I sat at home and, as usual, did not know what to do with myself. I wanted something: either the constitution, or the stellar sturgeon with horseradish, or to take and to rip someone off. To get a good jackpot - and to the side. And then, "looking at the time", either bite stew with horseradish, or dream about the constitution.

            Usually such people are not noticeable. Yes, and I consider candidates on the basis of whom I would appoint. For example, Grudinin, the Moscow mayor, let him clean this viper.

                I know one thing is not Putin, not Medvedev, not Volodya, not Vyayno, in short, none of the current elite.

              I, of course, understand that we have a different climate, but in winter all vegetables and all fruit and berries are getting more expensive. And berries --- who is this? We probably have such ----- melons, imported watermelons, grapes, plums, kiwi? And about fruits it is clear.
              And seasonality is completely different. The other day I bought sweets, chocolates ---- all sorts of stocks, sales. Lures, in short. winked

    The New Year is a holiday of positive. Unfortunately, often the info tends to be negative. Lately we are losing in Culture. We are used to the fact that on New Year’s they don’t show new films, they don’t sound new songs. If you remove Soviet cartoons, then there’s nothing Everyone talks about market relations. They exist on the foreign market. There is no market inside. FAS protects only big business. But no matter how, we will celebrate the New Year anyway. Even if we feel worse. Happy New Year, friends !

    More and more we are becoming independent of the state. There were once hopes ... disappeared. Pension and VAT paid off last. Who lived in the USSR will understand me, then significant calls also sounded ... catch up and overtake ... the food program ... five-year quality plan !!! And to the train more and more cars were stuck to Moscow ... it reached the 24th! In stores, a ride away ... and in refrigerators - there was always something to celebrate the New Year, and other holidays! Spin, turn, LIVE to our enemies smile Erupt !!! Happy New Year, everyone!

      I would say a little differently - "More and more the state is becoming independent from us ..."

    What left 2019 in the history of world and domestic

    He left a complete loss to Russia, Ukraine, WADA, etc. The resulting pluses do not outweigh, and do not even equal the minuses gained.

    Everything that has been done by the authorities of the good has been crossed out by a pension scam. Why were people forced to work to the grave? This is only redneck, not even greed, because they have everything. They just consider the people of Russia not to have earned pensions, they all created it. As Putin said, besides galoshes, nothing was produced in the USSR.

    What do you mean do not know? Raising housing and communal services tariffs, increasing prices in stores and gas prices, new taxes and requisitions, further impoverishment of the population and the growth of dollar billionaires from the circle of associates, and certainly "further work to increase the welfare of the population"))). Holiday greetings!)

    And what year did you leave? That we have become smaller. There will be even less. This is the main result.
    Constant population decline. I am embarrassed to ask what will happen when the pension action comes into full force. Everything will increase at times.
    The natural decline in Russians will be a record for 11 years. Why Russia continues to lose population
    The natural population decline in 2019 will be a record high for 11 years, it follows from the estimates of the Federal State Statistics Service. The influx of migrants does not compensate for it, the population of Russia, as last year, will decline, demographers say
    In January-October 2019, the natural decline in the population of Russia, i.e., the excess of the number of deaths over the number of births, amounted to 259,6 thousand people, follows from the data of the Federal State Statistics Service. This means that according to the results of the current year, the decline in the country will be the highest in 11 years, this indicator was higher only in 2008 - 362 thousand people.

    In fact, the withdrawal of troops is a recognition of US powerlessness in this conflict. They made the porridge, but failed to eat.

    VTsIOM: According to the citizens of Russia, the pension reform has become the main event of 2019. The reform led the rating of top events on a national scale - this is how 10% of respondents rated it. In addition, she entered the top three scandals of the year (4%), along with the doping scandal (7%) and corruption (4%).
    According to a Levada Center poll: pension reform and its consequences are in first place in the ranking of the most important events of the outgoing year with a result of 1%. The opening of the railway part of the Crimean bridge only in fourth place (44%), and the doping scandal - in the sixth (29%).
  23. I do not want to upset anyone, but in 2019, some “overslept”. For what? Why? Who better to do? It has become "fashionable" not to notice the year and the five-year plan. "" Already in 2030 we are LIVING for sure! ... "" Heal ", yeah ... Even this coming one still needs to be survived. It’s not a simple year. He is a GIROLE. He is a" year of summing up. "Let you are not fooled by the “ordered” and harmful chatter of idiots that “statistics do not confirm ...” As it confirms! And “separately taken” homo sapiens and entire states in the coming year to undergo a “comprehensive check” on the appropriateness of further earthly life. Is everyone ready? "Sea knee-deep?"
    It would be good not to “move away from the abyss,” but to “jump off,” “abruptly run away.” Something urgently needs to be "depicted" that there is a MEANING for the existence of this state. "Well, there will be another state, think!" No, not like that, you won’t "think" ... Historical experience tells us that with the dismantling of a particular state in a given territory, the country itself and Russia and its people suffer losses. Dismantled the "Russian Empire" - lost territory, lost millions of citizens, dismantled the "USSR" - lost territory, lost millions of Soviet citizens .... Amusing a little.
    But “Muscovites and guests of the capital” do not have a sense of danger, they do not see the light of the “Bikford cord”. To put it out ... But they don’t even see it! Yes, nervousness is felt. She is already noticed by many. So what? What is the use of this “nervousness” for the country of Russia?
    The upcoming anniversary year is the 75th anniversary of the Victory. Will we study? In general, both the 1941 campaign and the 1942 campaign were FAILURE for the Red Army, for the state of the USSR. What did Stalin do? He returned Russia to the Soviet people, returned the Tradition, returned the Russian ENDURING VALUES. And the time has come for victories! And they successfully completed Stalingrad, and in the Kuban, they piled in the air a little, and the citadel was destroyed to the ground, and the “mother of Russian cities” Kiev was taken before the November holidays. Will we study? Or will we continue to "test our fate"?

    I believe that the Americans in Syria fulfilled their tasks: control over Syrian oil. And all the rest is ballast for them, which they dropped
