How the Turks built their empire and were the geopolitical enemy of Russia

In Russia, one of the most popular foreign countries, not only for recreation, but also for discussion, is Turkey. The reason is connected with the relatively inexpensive opportunity to visit Turkish resorts without a visa, to see the sights of this country with your own eyes. It is also a media wave related to the Turkish strike on the Russian air force bomber, the Syrian and Libyan crises, and energy cooperation.


Turkish series, which are shown on Russian TV, add to their contribution.

Moreover, the vast majority of Russians, even those interested in Turkey and Russian-Turkish relations, are completely unfamiliar with history Turkey

On the Day TV channel, historian writer Vyacheslav Manyagin:

Getting acquainted with the Turks, with these cheerful and optional people, sometimes you absolutely do not understand how these people could have been our geopolitical enemy for centuries.

The author of the plot notes that, in fact, the Turks are different, since, in fact, this is a mixture of nationalities with different pasts.

Vyacheslav Manyagin:

There are many ethnic Greeks who today consider themselves to be Turks. There are still many ethnic Armenians.

The program on the specified channel tells how the Turks built their empire, which for centuries remained one of the most powerful and richest in the world, which in separate periods extended from.

    Incomprehension. It would be necessary to fix it. From the borders of Persia to the borders of Morocco, from the Rostov region (inclusive) to Yemen (inclusive). Something like this, if you do not take the Seljuks into account. (for some reason, it doesn’t show me “if you got an error ...” Help, who can laughing )

      There have been 12 Russo-Turkish wars throughout history. In 7 wars the winner is Russia, in 3 Turkey, in 2 wins the winner is not determined. Total 7/3 in favor of Russia. And even then, you can call the Turks the winners in the Crimean War and the WWII with a very big stretch. Because and there and there the winners were the Anglo-Francs. The only war that Turkey won against Russia can be considered the war of 1710-1713 and, again, with the reservation that Russia at that time was drawn into a much more serious and protracted Northern War. As a result, after each Russo-Turkish war, Turkey only became crowded, losing territories and influence.
      Conclusion: do not FIG fight with Russia, more expensive!

        Actually, in 1698. a truce was signed with the Turks for 30 years ... And, I must say, it was mainly observed on both sides ...

    Of course, Turkey has a very interesting and instructive story. This nation itself has absorbed the blood of many of its neighbors and bears the striking features characteristic of them. However, the desire to keep these peoples in their power and became the main reason for the collapse of the great empire. Moreover, this collapse was more catastrophic in its results than leaving the political map of the world of the Russian Empire and the USSR. hi

      It may not be more catastrophic, but we still feel the consequences, Syria, Iraq and other fragments of the Ottoman Empire.

        It is Britain and France who divided the Ottoman Empire, signing the Treaty of Lausanne in 1923, defining the borders of the Republic of Turkey.

          If only one Ottoman Empire, but three more Great Empires fell under the hand.

    -But personally, I’m absolutely not interested in reading or watching about Turkey ... -I didn’t watch this video too ... -surely another stereotype ...
    - My personal opinion ...- Turkey is the real antichrist for the Orthodox Christian world ... -and for the Christian Catholic world to a lesser extent ...
    -There is absolutely nothing attractive and unique in the whole existence of OI ... -No positive, creation, humanity and progress ... -And do not need here ... here ... here ... here to cite and set as an example any "mehmet" (at least disgusting, at least "magnificent") and mention all kinds of "Roksolan" and others like them (the current "Natasha", etc.) ...
    -Moreover, the OI fought wars of war for almost 500 years, but it was the Christian Orthodox states that suffered the most (this is simply not comparable with the losses suffered by Arabs, Persians, etc.) ... -You can say that it’s in Christian Orthodox blood of the OI and existed for centuries) ... -In the OI itself, labor was not welcome -All slaves and slaves did, even the necessary products ...- Grain, vegetables, fruits, meat, fish --- all this was imported into medieval Turkey from enslaved states ... -In Turkey itself, nothing was sown and cultivated ...
    - And OI has always widely used and applied the most sophisticated, insidious and cruel methods in relation to Orthodox Christian peoples ... - they can even be called prohibited methods ... -Over the centuries, OI has systematically taken from their Orthodox Christians their strongest, healthiest and the most complete sons and daughters to turn them into Turks; and with this she constantly renewed her rotten blood ...
    -Well, and then the OI was defeated by the not very successful politician Jan Sobesski, after which the myth of the invincibility of the OI was dispelled ... -Yes, it was Jan Sobessky who finally defeated the OI troops, saved Western Europe from the invasion of the Turks and finally set then the point on omnipotence OI ...
    - Surprisingly, the OI still managed to escape from the real retribution from the Orthodox states ...
    -And today Turkey exists quite happily and with impunity ...- And no one blames her for the almost "500-year-old Holocaust" over Christian Orthodox peoples; Moreover, even the recent genocide against the Armenians, too - no one blames Turkey ... -Strange things ... -But this is only IMHO ...
