Three big differences. Attitude to power in Russia, Belarus and Ukraine


One historical legacy - different political cultures



An interesting point: the fundamental difference between political cultures in Russia, Belarus and Ukraine. It’s just as though many would not understand this in one direction or the other, automatically transferring the realities of one country to another and making very far-reaching and, at the same time, very erroneous conclusions from this. So, the political culture and attitude to power in Kiev, Moscow and Minsk is very, very different!

Some may like this, some may not, but it is precisely in Russia that the culture of a European political compromise has taken root. When the first president of Russia won a decisive victory in the autumn of 1993 with a bad memory, he suddenly faced a certain political vacuum around him. Russia is not Latin America, and it doesn’t work for us like that.

Somehow, even Belarusians painfully recall the first victory of their main politician in 1994. And, they say, it was all over - stability began. Well, yes, but in Russia in 93 the glorious counter-revolution took place. And people were killed. But for some reason this did not lead to dictatorship ... It's strange, isn't it? It is worth recalling that the 90s for Russia is the era of two Chechen wars and numerous terrorist attacks. But for some reason, this did not lead to dictatorship either.

Despite the wild recession in the economy, gang violence and terrorist attacks, Russia was moving towards democracy. The strange thing is life. Nothing like the power of the guys "with heavy shoulder straps", as in Belarus, did not arise in Russia. How there was no lawlessness of “heroic” battalions-nationalists, as in Ukraine. Despite the fact that Russia really decided so many complex problems of national security. In very difficult conditions, but the dominance of certain heroes of “visible / invisible” fronts in Russia did not work out.

Although, for example, in the USA the “Patriotic Act” was adopted by Congress in much less dramatic conditions than the Russian 90s. They blew up two towers ... But the Act was passed. In Russia, the construction of democracy was carried out in some extremely difficult conditions, as far as possible from optimal. But it was done.

And here it is necessary to pay attention to the fundamentally different attitude to the very institution of power in Russia, on the one hand, and in Belarus and Ukraine, on the other. We understand this very differently. Almost immediately after the coup in Kiev, Lugansk was bombed, which caused a truly shocking reaction in Russia. By the way, in Ukraine this step is still no no questions. The approach there is very simple: if you seized power, then you can do anything. Power justifies all your actions.

There are no internal brakes. They are simply absent in the political structure of the state and society. That is why the struggle for power takes on such a fierce character, and that is why power behaves so shamelessly. That is, in our logic, the actions of the Maidan children are a national catastrophe, but from the point of view of the Ukrainians, everything is fine. You just need to seize power, and then do whatever you like. They have simply not yet reached the art of certain political compromises.

The power in modern Ukraine looks approximately as if everything in Russia would be decided by the FSB and the fighting squads of pro-government nationalists. A fairy tale sight. The fact that the economy of Ukraine after Maidan-2 dived sharply down is well known to everyone, but the fact of serious political degradation is much less noticeable. But for some reason this does not cause serious questions in Ukraine itself. Which is strange enough.

In Belarus, thank God, there were no wars, no revolutions, no uprisings, but in some strange way a very tough regime was formed, where any form of democracy (even Soviet) was not provided for in principle. Purely authoritarian regime. That is why in Belarus they react extremely painfully to любые proposals for political reform. This is impossible. An attempt to give more freedom can lead to the complete collapse of the entire watered. system. It is clear that no political compromises are and cannot be discussed. Initially, it didn’t. The country was very early divided into those in power and everyone else.

No dialogue between them is possible. If some are going to hold power indefinitely and rule, generally reckoning with no one and with nothing, while others have to meekly carry out their decisions, then any model of democracy is not interesting to anyone in the broad masses in principle. How the most important Belarusian likes to talk to the public: here, they say, when will be in power, and then you will make such decisions! Despite the fact that all elevators to power are tightly blocked, and elevator shafts are shot round by snipers around the clock.

That is, no dialogue and no compromises are provided for initially. And power is seen as a kind of holy grail. In such a system, democracy cannot arise in principle. And even hints of her. The system is pupping. The goal is not the achievement of certain political or economic markers, but the power itself. And everything else is beautiful fairy tales for fools who are endlessly led in a circle.

And by the way, above and below, a certain state of hopelessness and doom grows. Say, but in a different way you can’t ... Only this way! And no dialogue in such conditions is possible in principle, no joint work is possible.

In Belarus, a similar system developed back in the 2000s. In Ukraine, it finally took shape after Maidan-2. This is where the fundamental difference lies in the perception of power in Russia and in the two neighboring republics. In Russia, the seizure of power alone does not bring any holiness and infallibility.

By the way, this is precisely why both Kiev and Minsk make compromises in foreign policy relations. Because for them just power is not a compromise at all! Faced with the impossibility of a military victory in the Donbass, Ukrainian politicians continue to wave their fists and endlessly shout threats. In Russia, this is perceived quite oddly, but in Ukraine it is just quite normal. Even German generals during the WWII and WWII at some point began to lean toward a compromise. But not Ukrainian!

For "there is no such letter!" People just do not know how to do it. This, in any case, gives the impression. “Minsk-1” and “Minsk-2” were signed just after the defeat of the Ukrainian army and in the conditions of the collapse of the Ukrainian economy, but no real There was no inclination for compromise among Ukrainian politicians and generals. Although for objective reasons just them and a compromise was needed when the army, and the economy, and the state rolled into a compost pit. But no! We only need a victory!

The frank failures of the Lukashenko system in the field of economic planning and the growing discontent of the population generally had no consequences for the state course of the Republic of Belarus in the field of economics. This is something. In general, no compromises, no "NEP." Well, imagine: in peacetime (!) The economy is crashing openly, the population is rushing from poverty, but you refuse to make very obvious market decisions!

The simplest steps to privatize industrial giants and unprofitable collective farms would dramatically relieve the budget. Refuse from large government investment in the economy through external lending. And that’s it. Would not be such debt! But the authorities make any (generally any!) Decisions, without consulting anyone in principle. There is a certain principle of its sacredness, holiness and non-jurisdiction. And her reality from above ...

Mechanistic management approach


How can I still look at all this? Purely mechanically. Modern man constantly creates some automatic, self-regulating systems, and some of them work well, others are worse, and others are peddling. This refers to a variety of mechanisms - from a steam engine / windmill to homing systems for air-to-air missiles.

And when you look at the processes taking place in Ukraine and Belarus in the last thirty years, it becomes crystal clear that these countries cannot be successful. In principle, they can’t. There is no feedback as such in the system. A country can get poorer, an economy can fall apart, a population can run away, industry can degrade, but it does not directly lead to any consequences for the government and the state.

Some naive young men of pre-retirement age in Russia were sincerely convinced that failures in the economy and finances would force Kiev and Minsk to reconsider their course. But that did not happen. And why? But because Ukraine and Belarus are not small Russia, it is something completely different. No one asks bad questions like “What will happen to the Motherland and us?”. Already in the 2010s, the full and final de-industrialization of Ukraine and Belarus and the transfer of these powers to the “third world” took place. Which was accompanied by a wild decline in living standards and the complete dismantling of the remnants of the social system.

But damn it, it didn’t lead to any fundamental shifts in politics! The fierce fight for power on the deck of the sinking Titanic continues with relentless force. No Internal There are no prerequisites for changing the situation either in Belarus or in Ukraine. One hope is for a kind foreign uncle who will come and ruin everything and arrange a solid South Korea.

Here and there all the efforts of political players are aimed solely and exclusively at seizing and retaining power or its remnants. I would like to upset both the residents of the Republic of Belarus and the inhabitants of Ukraine: their countries themselves never will not be able to move up. It's impossible. It is absolutely useless for them to help and give loans (even irrevocable!). All this will be eaten and flushed down the toilet. Even if Russia had thrown another 180 billion dollars into Ukraine, this alone would not have allowed the Ukrainian system to develop. Money would be eaten and plundered.

The same goes for RB. Enormous direct assistance from Russia did not lead to any development. For a very long time, Belarusians had some kind of social guarantee in the “third world” country precisely due to this gratuitous help. Help ended - warranty ended. "Third World" remained. No foreign aid will ever make Finland out of them. This could be done only by the citizens of the country of Belarus.

The difference in the availability in Russia (historically!) Of internal mechanisms of demand from the government. It's not a joke. And even Ivan III (standing on the Ugra!) Contemporaries (including of despicable origin) openly reproached for the inability to solve foreign policy problems (nobody was happy with them). These charges were thrown almost in the face ... Failures in foreign policy (and this is inevitable in the event of a weakening state) inevitably called into question the legitimacy of power in Russia.

Nicholas II was hit very painfully primarily by the defeat in the Russo-Japanese War and the inability to organize an empire for the First World War. In many ways, this undermined his legitimacy. As a result, the overthrow was very easy. During that great war, a mass of facts that were frankly shameful for the ruling dynasty was revealed. And that was the verdict.

And Yeltsin did not give up power voluntarily. Not that he was a man. By the way, Gorbachev also did not want to give up power to the last. But overt failures in governance and especially in foreign policy completely disavowed them. But Poroshenko, having lost (and drunk!) Everything that is possible and impossible, remained the pan president until the very end. And no one kicked him out of the residence with a boot in the ass, no Ukrainian patriots bayonets against Kiev. Mr. Lukashenko, having completely lost the economy and driven the country into a dead end domestic and foreign deadlock, retained both power and regalia! A person continues to maintain power when everyone already hates him.

Looking at all these failures and catastrophes, we are waiting for an internal click when the citizens “there” already realize that they are openly fooled and begin to act accordingly. And not a damn thing like that! Although it looks like Russia, it’s still not Russia ... The main thing there is to seize power at any cost, and then at least a flood, at least Konotop, at least grass does not grow. There is no internal correction mechanism. Well, look at Lukashenko (about Ukraine, and so everyone has heard): industry is gone, gold reserves are gone, the army is gone. The population flees from the country. The king is naked.

But the power system is still, in principle, quite stable. Its stability with the results of the board is in no way connected, which is why. In Ukraine, no theft and defeat at the front led to a political crisis or a change of power either. I.e история It unfolds slowly, and life is short, so you still need to be able to look abstractly at this situation. We cannot endlessly wait for the result over and over again.

So, it is purely abstract: if the system lacks responsibility for the results of the board, then there will be no development and no course correction. Neither in Kiev, nor in Minsk over the past quarter century have invented anything clever. And they will not be able to do this. The deplorable situation in which the former USSR and BSSR found themselves was absolutely inevitable under the very system of power organization. The fall could go along a different or completely different trajectory, but in fact it was absolutely inevitable. Good decisions are hard to make; bad decisions are easy. So, if there is no responsibility for a series of bad decisions, then good ones simply will not materialize. Nobody will accept them. Drinking is easier than preparing for an exam ...

The suicidal policies and very emotional rhetoric in recent years both in Belarus and Ukraine are explained by just a frank panic in the highest echelons of power. The system is peddling, but they simply don’t know what to do there.

      “The bourgeoisie is forced to be hypocritical and call it“ nationwide power ”or democracy in general, or pure democracy, a democratic republic, which in fact is the dictatorship of the bourgeoisie, the dictatorship of the exploiters over the working masses.“

        You see, democracy and democracy are two different things. We, in the old Soviet habit, believe that demos are the people. Demos are those who have something. For example, a car is not taken on credit, and they can afford an apartment, and fly somewhere for the weekend. But these are not oligarchs, they just periodically have millionaires.

          As V.I. Lenin said comparing bourgeois democracy and proletarian dictatorship:
          democracy, true democracy, is not applied in practice in any country. Democracy is just a screen obscuring the dictatorship of capital

            Legalized “sleight of hand” in 2 states out of 3 mentioned in the article. In contrast to the prosperous countries, where, when trying to fool, citizens beat these "hands" who are justly not satisfied with the "profitable" comparison with the standard of living in the Central African Republic.

        That's right. He began to read the article and stopped after saying that Russia is (is) building democracy. And in Russia, like in Ukraine, everything is allowed to the authorities. The authorities write laws for themselves, for their mercantile interest. The dictatorship of the bourgeoisie, what we have, what is in Ukraine. And between them, by and large, there is no difference.

          The fact that there is a nickname instead of your name would not prevent the relevant authorities from talking face to face with you. In Ukraine, this happens periodically. Belarusian political scientists on the pretext of "diarrhea" refuse to come to meetings with colleagues in Russia. You are being tolerated with your critical comments about senior management. At least any person from the local administration will come to any delusional note in the President’s office and ask what you would like to say with this note. Verified by personal experience. It’s just fashionable today to grumble about and for no reason. Our power is far from ideal, but we must bear in mind that 1. we are already a capitalist country; 2. we are heavily pressed by the "golden billion". And no matter how we rumble, the power of the Anglo-Saxons, nevertheless, is higher than ours. And the fact that we are not yet a colony of the type of "some beyond the western border" is achieved by incredible labor and serious economic costs. One quite competent literate comrade once said that the state was called not to make heaven on earth, but to prevent hell. I think - not baseless ...

Then shoot the bribe takers too! And then the owners of the billionth property were covered in Rosreestr, replacing the owners of the Russian Federation in the row, the quadrocopters practically banned, so as not to remove these palaces from the air, now they want to shut their mouths to the people. So that the people do not blur out that the king is naked.

                I think you know everything yourself, but prefer to troll. The receiver is clearly from the catechism of the Jews -
                Your self-confidence will be perceived as conviction, ambition - as the exaltation of the mind, the manner of teaching and correcting - as superiority. TURN THE BRAINS THEM, SCREW THE NERVES! Suppress the will of those who object to you. Compromise upstarts and screamers, set the crowd’s vanity on skeptics. In conversations and disputes, use rhetorical devices that are on the verge of decency. Ask for the name, place of work, position of the doubter and protester. This tends to shock and intimidate them, and they retire. Demand answers, and having received them, repeat, not analyzing in essence: "This is not so, it is not at all!"
                Do you recognize yourself?

              Exactly where you are. As we strengthen it, so it grows stronger. If we carry all nonsense instead of an active interest in the one we choose, then the result will be the same. Having planted burdocks, do not wait for the pineapple. Without giving birth to children, it is difficult to wait for an increase in the number of pensioners working per unit, without raising a child, it is difficult to wait for him to overcome the USE and become useful to society. And no one except us will make the economy strong. And sitting on the couch and asking where it is, the economy and power, you will not see this power until you yourself create it.

                      And exactly the same. They worked. But the whole “working day” does not mean that they did not have enough time not to be interested in my school affairs. In the 10th grade, we spent almost the entire second half of the year exam tickets. Plus, in the evenings I went to preparatory courses at the Polytechnic. My parents, who did not buy me a stick for 3,60, on the first sentence gave twenty if only I pulled up what I was missing. You want to say that all 70 million working parents plow from dawn to dawn without seeing the light of God and their own children? Nonsense all this .... and excuses.

                      And what do you mean "degraded"? After graduation, not everyone can read and write here? How is it in the USA? Yes, I had questions for the school my children attended. And not a little. I think my parents also had them no less. I do not presume to evaluate the entire education system. I do not work in this area. But when my children studied, I knew at what level their knowledge in specialized subjects, I knew what should have been, and I knew where to send them in order to be acceptable for entering a university. What I wanted was what I got in the end. Maybe you are from the Ministry of Education and have the ability and competence to evaluate them? I don’t have one. Therefore, I try to solve feasible tasks.

                        This is now you and your wife’s assessment as parents set. I see no reason for pride. My son graduated from school with gold, today is a Ph.D., with a decent salary, wife, children and a mortgage. And also passed the exam. The daughter also passed the exam, also with gold, at school in a small Siberian town. A decent university, on a budget. I think the main thing is to set parents' priorities in life on time and follow plans a little.

                        That's it - to supplement, but not replace. But, in general, you just need to love the children .... without reference to the inscriptions on the fences .. In the last years of my daughter’s studies at school, I read the main books on literature (which I didn’t do in childhood), so that there was something to discuss with her. You will not believe it, but they, our children, know how to think, and sometimes are subtler than us, the old conservatives.

                        Yes, school and parents should complement each other. That's just the majority of modern parents perceive the school on the principle of "Give birth to yours, bring up yours." My son graduated from the gymnasium in 2007 in physical education. The class teacher and part-time one of the strongest mathematicians in the city of 23 people received graduation with 5 silver and 5 gold medals. All the children went where they wanted. Then she took the next 4 or 5 class, got confused in these transitions. Released. And on this her teaching ended. Now she is a head teacher. Somehow I brought her up and asked why. She replied that, compared with us, current parents do not help, but only demand. Children have only rights, but they did not hear anything from the word about duties at all. And the result of such upbringing begins to show up in grades 10-11, when mothers like mad begin to run around tutors and scribble complaints about teachers, as it turns out their "golden and crystal" children do not know anything. But the school and the teacher are to blame for this, but not the parents. hi

        The suicidal policies and very emotional rhetoric in recent years both in Belarus and Ukraine are explained by just a frank panic in the highest echelons of power. The system is peddling, but they simply don’t know what to do there.

                    There is no crime. The owner increased the area of ​​the store, which of course is a violation. But why demolish?
                    Everything is much simpler. Officials regularly took bribes. This time, too, they took it, but one high official, incidentally being temporarily in his position, was quick to demolish. They say that personal insult, on the owner of the store.

                        Well, let's put a high official acted accordingly time. In the 90s, he would have hired bandits.
                        And then it didn’t collapse very much, they broke for almost 10 days.

                        I apologize, but what I read is so enchanting that I could not resist. This whole tale, about the store, is a typical story of the Rain channel. 200 store employees, a high official who made a legal decision. Judging by the number of unemployed - demolished a hypermarket? Someone illegally built a store. To avoid his demolition, he gave bribes to petty officials until an honest man was found who made the legitimate decision to demolish. But of course, the motive for this decision was not the law, but a personal hostility to the owner. To accept the fact that a legal decision can be made with the only motivation - compliance with the law, does not occur to our professional lovers of Russia. All stores are demolished, 76 thousand enterprises are closed, collapse everywhere, chaos, but there is one high-ranking official observing the law on the basis of personal hostility to the store owner. Russia is flying into the abyss.

    Three big differences.
    No dialogue between them is possible. If some are going to hold on to power indefinitely and rule, generally reckoning with no one and nothing, while others have to meekly execute their decisions, then any fake of democracy to anyone in the broad masses is uninteresting in principle.

    Is it about Belarus or about the Russian Federation? belay And what is the difference?
    The whole difference between the republics is the presence on their territory of hydrocarbon deposits, energy facilities and natural resources. And the authorities in our independent states act according to one scheme: they are not going to live AFTER the “WISE” MANAGEMENT together with us in one country. Even if you have to stay because of insurmountable obstacles, they are fenced off from us by the closed territories of cottage villages, face guards and armored (and not so) cars.
    Therefore, it is not worth making a distinction with different heaps of manure from one barn (all these are former members of the CPSU !!!). And then the wrong impression will be that we (in Russia) will soon go to heaven, and they (in other republics) will simply die ...

    The only exception is that in the 90s, Kuchma won the election while already in power.
    In all other cases, the power loses the election.

      Just in Ukraine there was one specific opinion:
      From all possible solutions, the Ukrainian government always chooses the worst.
      Always.
      A series of failures, mistakes, catastrophes do not teach the Ukrainian authorities absolutely anything.
      She is uneducable.
      and continues to stupid endlessly, burning the country.

      It's clear?
      The change of well-fed physiognomy in power does not affect the result in any way.

      Yeah, their power is changing ...
      No, panovoe, all the same.

    And Yeltsin did not give up power voluntarily.
    ... And how did he resist ...? He rested, like Zhikharka, when they tried to bring him into an office in which he said to the whole country: I'm tired, I'm leaving .. smile The strengthening of democracy in Russia was that when the candidate “against all” decided to win the election, they decided to remove this candidate ...

      They made an offer to Yeltsin that he could not refuse: a voluntary transfer of power in exchange for the safety of the "family". It was not in his interests to rest.

    The author probably wanted to say that power in Russia is closer to the people, but it seems to me that the bourgeoisie cannot in any way reflect the interests of the proletariat, it lives off of exploitation and is not ready to give up its privileges. Our nouveau riche is not ready to allow new people to power, the resignation of the ministers only confirmed this, no one is offended, the seats were rotated and that’s it. And how else will the bourgeoisie not allow the review of the results of privatization and the rules by which they rob the people.

If that were so .. then to this day Russia would be a small feudal state, fragmented into principalities ... and would have long been under some kind of Poles. Our strength is in unity. And the enemy is the one who is trying to split us up .. First, Ukraine and Belarus, and then the domestic Russian subsidized regions, offer to give to the Chinese? They are unprofitable and there mouths .. how do you deign to express yourself ..

          Actually, the main question that Yegorov calls on you to ask yourself, but it still won’t reach you. Do the residents of Ukraine and Belarus consider us theirs? Russian subsidized regions are at least located in Russia, but why should I care about the well-being of those who fight in Russophobic hysteria? How do you propose building relationships with them? They have been offered various forms of integration 100500 times, they don’t want to, because then they will lose the opportunity to plunder these territories with impunity. For some reason, it still doesn’t reach you that Russian capitalism is interested in a strong Russian state, and it will finance science, the army, and so on. But neither Ukrainian nor Belarusian feudalism is interested in this. They argue solely in terms of time to grab more now, and then what will happen, no matter. And exactly the same thinking is inevitably inculcated in the population.

          Naturally, the 17th century is already reminiscent of when, how is it that, under the tsar of Moscow, you will have to pay taxes and comply with the laws, but do I need it?

          Ukrainians will want to be Russian, not savages, then we'll see.

            They want / do not want ... this is a liberal-naive approach .. and if tomorrow some kind of subsidized region does not want to? By your logic, “Take sovereignty as much as you want” (Yeltsin) ..
            The Slavic peoples are not at all against being together, against the elite ... and with an appropriate policy towards Belarus and Ukraine, one can very quickly move towards unification ..

              Here everything will be according to the law. But our law is valid only on our territory. And yes, if the independence of certain territories cost us more than their feeding, then they would be reluctantly, but fed. But for now, in relation to some kind of Tajikistan, we can confine ourselves to a military presence larger than the entire local army, without being engaged in providing local housing and communal services and schools, we will limit ourselves to this.

        And who split it? Is it in the USA who invented to teach the dialect of Poltava villages in Little Russia, like some kind of “Ukrainian language”? Or maybe they came up with the United States to admit to Moscow universities according to the order and quotas of immigrants from the republics? Of course, I understand everything, but there is a school obligatory for everyone, and there are prestigious universities where only the best should be accepted, and look at school certificates and exam results, and not in the nationality column. Or maybe in the USA they came up with indulging in different small-town traditions, when if some kind of Uzbek has something “religion does not allow”, then you need to understand and forgive, and only from Russian there is always complete demand.

        If feeding only leads to the fact that "once we will not be brothers," then we must not feed. Success in national construction will come only when every Tajik, Chechen, Kyrgyz, and anyone else wants to become Russian. If he doesn’t want to, and prefers backwards in the mosques to bow 5 times a day, or to indulge in a mov, then free, as they say, will. Separate states have given everyone, let them live, as they know how, by force they do not drag anyone back.

    About Ukraine we will not be so clear. In Belarus, people live the same way we do. Putin wants to recreate the Union in a new form and to subjugate Belarus for this, which from the point of view of a statesman is a normal solution.
    Lukashenko - as President, he won’t be subordinate, there are too many ambitions ..
    The result was already in our History - when Gorbachev and Yeltsin divided the throne and torn the country because of their royal Wishlist ...
    And so Putin is right - you want to have Russian prices - go to the Union, but no - buy like everyone else .. For military cooperation, you need to give discounts, but ...
    And yes, if we separate those 48% of foreign owners-partners from Gazprom Pie, the gas will be several times cheaper ... for Belarus too .. But this guide will not do it because it clearly said that the Russian economy will remain liberal with free capital flows .. Hence the conclusion - 48% of the profits from the national gas heritage of the people flows into the pocket of world capital ..
    Sobchaks integrated the Russian Federation into the world economy through the WTO and other agreements.
    Aluminum has already sailed to the west, with time it will float away and that’s it ... Question of time.

    (continued) is a fact. This is also evidenced by the wild desire to create mononation in Ukraine at any cost and the Republic of Belarus’s unwillingness to fulfill the agreements reached earlier with the Russian Federation, if it at least seems to offend sovereignty, for example, the creation of joint ventures. Oddly enough, multinational Russia in this regard has never set the task of assimilating someone by force. So learn to take someone’s point of view even when you don’t really like it. Conviction of one’s rightness does not mean obstinacy, in contrast to which it is built on knowledge and proven facts.

    The simplest steps to privatize industrial giants and unprofitable collective farms would dramatically relieve the budget.


    And where did you get that it’s easy? Soviet industrial giants can reach several tens of thousands of workers, and literally, cities were built around them. You are now arguing from a Russian perspective when “it already hurt”, and frankly useless factories have long been closed, and those that were valuable have learned to work in the new conditions. And the collective farms, which Khrushchev turned into a major increase in the production of machinery without any clear result for the population, have long been replaced by larger agricultural holdings. The population has also been updated. Both the economy and society have reorganized. At the same time, we did not have intelligible capitalism either, or not. And will not be. The state is forced to have shares in everything that is more important than a flower shop.

    You can not even privatize, but implement the very slogan about factories by workers, the main thing is that the plant itself exists at its own expense. Without the redistribution of income from more successful enterprises in his favor. It will be interesting when his leadership begins to count and it turns out that at some MAZ it is necessary to dismiss 20 percent.

    At the same time, Russia would be much larger than the Republic of Belarus, and, unlike the Republic of Belarus, which was the final assembly workshop in the Soviet economy, it has at least resources, such as oil.

      So all the same, what is more important: factories - workers or "so that the plant itself exists at its own expense"?

      What is more important?
      By the way, not every capitalist can make a factory commercially viable.


      It will be interesting when his leadership begins to count and it turns out that at some MAZ it is necessary to dismiss 20 percent.


      And what’s better - to put the plant on its feet (to make it profitable) at the cost of reducing 20 percent of staff
      or wait for his complete bankruptcy?

      Lukashenko has far from retained all the factories; on the contrary, almost all the factories have anyway been damaged.
      At the same time, staff was reduced (as well as staff salaries!) Gradually, but this, alas, did not lead to recovery.

      So maybe it was easier to sell the plants for good money and let the bourgeois at their own expense move production?
      When a plant is bought for serious money, closing it is unprofitable.

That Rutskoi immediately went to the world, and Lebed was the governor of the Krasnoyarsk Territory, that is, he was engaged in quite a civilian household. activity, and, it seems, even not bad. And Putin from the special services, however, did not take any totalitarian measures in Russia. Moreover, Putin is now trying to do what Stalin failed to create a normal state due to the Great Patriotic War. management tied to a system, not specific people. Or do you think that Putin is such an immortal princess Celestia from My Little Pony that she spent 1000 years backward on the throne, and nothing?

    Our patience is not to be surprised. From all sides, Russia is skillfully surrounded by enemies, not without talented participation in the process of our native power - it knows what it is doing. Or skillfully creates the appearance of an enemy environment. Well, here I’ll dig a tire out of the flowerbed and, having bought a glass of vodka in a store (such is for sale!), Pour a flammable mixture over the tire and set it on fire in the village square - in protest against this and that. As they would have done. "Abnormal! - people will tell me. - Why are you rocking the boat? Enemies all around! The country will be torn to pieces in pieces!"
    Maybe they won’t say it, they just think, and when they think, they call the police. And she will tell me the aforementioned, cramming into a padlock. Because of all the Slavic peoples, Russians are the largest statesmen, and this is in everyone’s subconscious. It was we who built the Russian Empire, and then the USSR, and now we are holding Russia in one piece. We are obliged, as it were, to our ancestors and are afraid of harming the collapse of our people, scattered throughout all parts of the vast Motherland - there is sad experience. Neither Ukrainians nor Belarusians built anything. I admit, they took part. But only in this aspect is participation. Therefore, their identity is different. Patience with them and with us has a different basis. They just stand on the sidelines and see what happens, protect their health. Realizing that no one will attack them. And even in agreement with NATO, so that for sure it would be possible to comfortably endure further. And we, grinding our teeth, are in solidarity with the authorities in the confrontation with everyone around us - this is how the political map of the world laid down.

    Somehow, the author did not open the topic of democracy in Russia. Democracy - (dr. Greek δημοκρατία "democracy" from δῆμος "people" + κράτος "power"). That is, the power of the people ... did people promote pension reform? Yes, and a lot of questions to the new laws and requisitions that were adopted in 2018-2019, for the "good" of the people. There are also a lot of questions about the political system of Russia and the system of appointments of governors and other higher officials, if we are talking about democracy. The cleansing of the political field in Russia, when only the manual opposition remained in the State Duma, but the real opposition which represents the interests of the people was never seen. In general, do not look, but to call the political system in Russia a democracy, my language does not turn. In Belarus, there is a dictatorship there, but we also have one person’s power, now the truth is there are new amendments to the constitution, but even so, the current government will find loopholes and make it beneficial to it. those. to stay in power. And in Ukraine it’s even sadder ... they don’t have a stable political system, every election is some kind of circus, and even the country itself has come under external control, and now their appointment is being coordinated with the West. In general, do not look, everywhere there are problems.

      I will say a couple of suggestions about Belarus and Ukraine. The problem of Belarus is not in the political system, the dictatorship has its advantages, and in the long run this problem will happen when the Old Man leaves and the question arises with the system itself. But the current problems are of a slightly different kind, namely the lack of resources in Belarus and a seat on two (or even three) chairs. When it’s good to decide which economic union it will join and not turn off the path, if the Old Man didn’t cling to power, then there would be no problems with gas / oil, scandals, etc., since now the root of the problem lies in further integration of the Union State and its unwillingness to continue. And Ukraine had the same problem, a seat on different chairs and endless throwing from one economic block to another (EU - Customs Union), now they seem to have decided but no one is waiting for them in the EU and opening markets has gone far to the benefit of Ukraine. If Ukraine went to the CU (2014), then the state’s economic situation would have improved significantly and the people would have felt better, and the political system would be much more stable, but they would have made the wrong choice. As for independence in general and Lukashenko’s statements, it’s worth noting that there is no such independence for small states (unless you are of course Switzerland), no one has canceled global processes of integration into various economic blocks and associations, you want to be competitive in the market and have share (and various buns) you need to accept the rules of the game.

    but in Russia in the 93rd there was a glorious counter-revolution. And people were killed. But to for some reason it didn’t lead to dictatorship... strange, right? It is worth recalling that the 90s for Russia is the era of two Chechen wars and numerous terrorist attacks. But for some reason, this did not lead to dictatorship either.

    Despite the wild recession in the economy, gangster lawlessness and terrorist attacks, Russia was moving towards democracy.

    I did not understand: The author is so ironic or seriously "/ \ oshapuka turned on"? ..........
    for some reason, this did not lead to dictatorship ...? And what dictatorship should be shown to the Author so that he can clearly see that this is a dictatorship? belay Show balsa portrait of a bad uncle with the words "dictator"? And the fact that after the shooting of the “then-parliament”, a dictatorship of an anti-people regime, defined by an ideological orientation (or Yeltsin’s dictatorship ...) was established in the country, does the author ignore his own (!) Notions about the signs of dictatorship? By 1996 Yeltsin’s rating ranged from 2% to (no more ...) 5%! And suddenly - “crushing victory” EBN! Does the author know that in 1996 the EBN was planning to establish its personal dictatorship by force of arms, without encryption, if organized political cheating for some reason would not succeed? And in 1993 The shooting of the Moscow "white house" was carried out with a gross violation of Russian law and international law, is this not the dictator's manners, not the manifestation of a dictatorship?
    Moving towards democracy side by side with "gangster lawlessness"? belay Does the author consider this a natural process? But yak! Democracy "dissolved" the "gangster lawlessness" in itself! There was no "gangster lawlessness" because there were no "gangster-chaos"! Because, the "lawless bandits" democratically mutated into businessmen, deputies, and state structures! The more bandits were “reforged” into businessmen, deputies, and heads of government agencies, the more democracy has become in Russia? And there weren’t many examples of bureaucratic lawlessness, lawlessness of snickering rich people who imagined themselves masters of the country, law, people ...?

    If some are going to hold power indefinitely and rule, generally reckoning with no one and nothing, while others have to meekly execute their decisions, then any fake of democracy

    In my opinion, this is quite reminiscent of the situation that has developed now in the Russian Federation ..

    And Yeltsin did not give up power voluntarily. Not that he was a man. By the way, Gorbachev, too, did not want to give up power to the last. But overt failures in governance and especially in foreign policy completely disavowed them. But Poroshenko, having lost (and drunk!) Everything that is possible and impossible, remained the pan president until the very end. And no one kicked him out of the residence with a boot in the ass

      The whole difference is in mentality, although it would seem one people. Yes, not one. Like the Germans living in Germany, Switzerland and Austria. The Russians were able to create their own state, become the main ones in the Horde, in fact we are the Horde. It is impossible to do this without the support of the people, including the “vile” origin. Of course, the state’s social structure is not fair, the USSR was no more fair system than it is now (they ripped off the Russians and fed the “brothers”), therefore it collapsed. The people, first and foremost, the Russian, did not begin to support the government in attempts to maintain it. Plus, power, or rather the leader has in Russia has a sacred character, provided that he performs his functions, if not then it .... that happened more than once. And the power (leader) knows this. I can’t say anything about the Belarusians, I actually talked a little, but I can say about the inhabitants of Ukraine (I studied for 3 years), they sacredly believed in the USSR that Muscovites ate the whole sausage. All their independence from greed, purely farm thinking, they have no culture (technology) of state building. The state has always come from outside of Novgorod, the Poles, Moscow come and rule. Therefore, now this is an attempt to cling to the European Union, it seems more satisfying than in Russia, at the same time they will tell what to do. The author tried to find the difference in attitude to power, but the topic should be considered from an earlier period, probably from the collapse of Kievan Rus. Regarding democracy, this profanity in its purest form is not possible, with any social structure. Trying to realize it in its pure form is a path to disaster, so you do not have to be naive that we choose honest and incorruptible and live. The authorities should have pragmatic prudent professionals without unnecessary emotions, whose fate is tied to the fate of the country (there is nowhere to run), it’s another matter that the ranks must be cleaned periodically. First of all, it is necessary to clean non-professionals.

        And where is the difference in mentality between Muscovite and Khokhl? Same.

    Moving towards democracy side by side with "gangster lawlessness"? belay The author believes that this is a natural process? But yak! Democracy "dissolved" in itself "gangster lawlessness"


    Shoba is not to be unfounded - please study the history of the creation of democracy in the USA
    You will be very surprised
    Finding out who settled Australia (undoubted democracy)
    You will be surprised even more ...

    Not everything is so simple Komrad, not everything is so simple ...
    Politics is not done by angels and for angels ... alas request

    And what, the story of Malchish / Kibaltish and Malchish / bad is not true?
    And the damned bourgeoisie does not roll?

    I distinguish more simply, three types of "democracy":
    1. American - the president felt the girl for the ass - they broke a rag like an ace, without pants left-
    responsibility means coming
    2. Asian / Turkish - the citizen said the "hunchbacked" word against the president / government - disappeared
    together with sisters / brothers, responsibility again comes.
    3. Ukrainian - the president steals / thumps / walks - anyway, nothing will happen to him, a citizen / many citizens yell on all channels that the president, ministers are scum and he / they will not have anything either - no one
    no responsibility - it is to see the highest degree of democracy

    A lot of words, but the essence is much simpler. Both that and other republic remained, in a sense, in the USSR. In the sense that they (like the same Balts and the Caucasus) are used to living off subsidies. The industrialization of Ukraine was done by the whole country. The rise of Belarus, after the Second World War, was made by the whole country. And the whole country, this is essentially the RSFSR. It's just that the Union republics are used to living like that. Like the same Kazakhstan. The support from the Russian Federation decreased, immediately they shook the US handle. The same Caucasus. Until they were given free tax and subsidies for raising the economy after two wars, they were all looking for a thread for a new sponsor, at least for the same Saudis.
    Those. IMHO, everything is simpler and there is no need to dig to the depths of Ivan Vaksilievich. Under Ivan Vasilyevich, there were no such countries as Belarus or Ukraine at all, not to mention the rest.
    In general, the author’s impulse was noble, and the conclusions seemed to be correct, but the argument did not convince me.

    The author, apparently, is preparing to take an annual certification for loyalty, therefore, without hesitation, pulls an owl on a globe.
    The answer to the question of the attitude to power in Russia was very clearly formulated by Schearchimandrite Barsanuphius in his "Cell Notes in 1892-1896.
    “The devotion of the Orthodox Russian people to their Kings is not at all the same as the devotion of Western peoples to their sovereigns. According to modern Western concepts, a sovereign is nothing but a representative of his people - and Western peoples love their representatives and willingly obey when they faithfully fulfill their purpose. In the West, in their sovereigns, peoples love only themselves. If the king by his personal nature is not able to be a faithful reflection of the aspirations, ideas and passions that dominate the people, then they limit and compress his will If the king does not succumb to these efforts and is unable to give in to the taste and character of his subjects, then he will lose not only the people's love, but also the throne, as was the case with Charles X and Louis Philippe and the Sardinian king Albert “Not at all in Russia: our Tsar is a representative of the will of God, and not of the people. His will is sacred to us, like the will of the anointed of God; we love him because we love God."
    Since then, nothing has fundamentally changed, just the king on the European "manir" began to be called the president.

    Good and competent article. As a former citizen of Ukraine, I completely agree with the thesis of the author.

    "The construction of democracy in Russia"
    The author likes this expression so much that he repeats it in almost every paragraph, but someone in 30 years can finally explain what it means on the fingers and in fact. As an ordinary layman, I just see that an inherited estate society has been created, the community of people has been destroyed, the education and upbringing system, the modern system of providing general education services have been stamping several generations of "advanced consumers" without honor and conscience, studying according to Sorov textbooks, whose graduates frankly they despise their country and people, history and culture, and from here everything else “showered”. The “upper class” by chance, breaking through to power through ties, arrogance and licking, killed the power and monetized the power itself, for the most part were inept, inert and ineffective, engaged in imitation and sale of the country for the most part, recalling more, but rather and there is a colonial administration with limited powers, under the strict control of the instruments of the external neocolonial administration of the Central Bank and the HSE. This bureaucratic-oligarchic class lives and “works” according to other laws of another state, written by themselves and their overseas curators, fundamentally different from the laws for citizens of the state with which they have nothing in common with which they will immediately betray at the slightest threat their well-being, as has already been betrayed more than once, like the very same Deripaska, who sold the whole industry, ministers and deputies, traitors and defectors. With complete irresponsibility and encouragement of the leadership, where any crime is possible by the measure of everything and all the loot, it’s brazen and cynical, even not hiding its contempt for the country and people, shows the same red-haired “Honored Adventurer of Russia”. Such, in the opinion of the layman, I see “democracy” built over 30 years, where everyone is free, from conscience, from livelihood, any kind of education, etc.
