Military Review

Readers of the Polish publication unflatteringly evaluate arms exports from Russia

74

The Polish press is haunted by Russia's successes in defense and military industry. This time, Defense24 published an article on Russian military exports, and the Polish audience tried to give their assessments of Russia's positions on the world market weapons.


As you know, Russia is one of the world's largest exporters of weapons and military equipment. Positions on the international arms market were won back in Soviet times, but even after the collapse of the USSR, they remain very strong.

Vladimir Putin announced the amount of arms exports in 2019: $ 15 billion. The head of state noted that military-technical cooperation with many countries of the world is developing very successfully, although there are certain risks associated with the coronavirus pandemic, which has a negative impact on the entire world economy.

The main buyers of Russian weapons are still the same - China, India, Vietnam, Algeria and several other Asian and African states. The Russian-African summit held in the fall of 2019 also brought Russia several new contracts in the field of military-technical cooperation: African countries are long-standing buyers of Russian weapons and are not going to abandon this tradition. After all, Russian weapons are not only high quality, but also more affordable than American or European-made weapons, cost.

Naturally, an article about the success of Russian defense exports was affected by the audience of the Polish publication, which burst into numerous comments. The anti-Russian sentiment in Poland is so strong that any article about Russia's success provokes only two kinds of audience reaction: either mocking, with the assurance that all success is blown, or panic, with statements that Russia is about to attack unfortunate Poland.

So, one of the readers recalled that the value of Russia's exports, if you subtract oil, oil products and gas, is less than the Polish: 220 billion dollars against 264 billion dollars. And if Russia exported weapons worth $ 15 billion, then Poland supplied furniture and lighting systems for the same amount ...

I wonder how to compare Russia with Bangladesh? Verification: Bangladesh exports only clothes for 25 billion euros,

- the person writes under the nickname "Dull".

He also remembered the Polish automotive industry, which exported $ 30 billion worth of goods last year. True, compatriots immediately besieged the “fiery patriot”, recalling that Poland is essentially just an assembly shop for foreign automobile corporations and that the profits go into the pockets of General Motors, Volkswagen, Toyota, but not the Polish state. In contrast, by the way, from the Russian defense industry, the income from the export of products of which comes to Russia.

Another commentator recalls that Russia will lose arms buyers in the future, as China’s products are more competitive due to their low cost. Of course, they recall the coronavirus too, sarcastically asking how much money Russia will spend on the fight against the epidemic and its consequences, if the per capita GDP of the Russian Federation is lower than that of Poland.

At the same time, there are other comments.

Very sad! Putin shows clearly and unambiguously that he is focused on provoking or endorsing a major war in our world. Otherwise, it would not make sense to develop arms production in the Russian Federation. It also proves that the years of sanctions against Russia did not have much impact on Putin’s policies,

- Someone writes Zbigniew.

                        So it’s Gorbachev and Eltsin who, even under the Union, tried to throw the Baltic out. In January 1991, Eltsin, as Chairman of the Presidium of the RSFSR, signed an act of independence with Estonia, and on September 6, 1991, the Supreme Soviet of the USSR recognized the independence of Estonia, and in December 1991, the USSR played a giveaway. Which Union, and from which Union did someone break that already burst at the seams? And which is no longer there. Or do you still live in the Soviet Union?

                        I think that Gorbyty sold everything when he met Reagan in Reykjavik. When there was an all-Union referendum, Moscow instructed not to hold a referendum in the Baltics, but we ourselves staged a referendum and collected 1,5 million votes for the Union, but this was recognized as invalid. And then Eltsyn finished it off, our Intermovement tried to stop this "Tallinn Conspiracy", but there were not those weight categories. Or maybe it’s for the best that we left the Union 4 months earlier, and everything went without bloodshed, as in Belarus, and blood was shed in the rest of the republics.

    I often think, is the theory of evolution really right? And among close peoples the most intense competition? Both now and for centuries, there has been high tension and frequent military disputes between the Polish-Lithuanian ethnic group (where some modern Ukrainians can be included) and Russians.

    The export of weapons is not always directly a profitable financial venture .... sometimes it is necessary to equip the army to maintain the regime, so that there is no change of power, which could prevent domestic companies from doing business in the country. In any case, civilian exports should be several times greater ..... so that after such military supplies there would be someone to come to loyal territory and make money and pay taxes to the Russian Federation.

    When you are up to the tonsils in Russophobia, you can only "grow dim" and further pouring out your bile and hatred towards the country that saved yours from fascism. But who is provoking a war, in particular in Europe, is Poland with the Balts under the tacit approval of the United States. Let's see how the Polish economy will "flourish" after the end of EU subsidies.

    Well, yes, "bad" Russia only does what it arms itself and arms its friends and partners, but the "poor things" NATO members do nothing of the kind, and Abrams in Poland just stand there as it is the cheapest parking in the whole EU.

    I am also not very happy with only $ 15 billion in arms revenues, and I would have better known that the same amount is added to them from "stools" and another 30 billion from car exports. Or will one of you refuse it?

    This pshek does not know that the export of grain and food products from Russia exceeds the export of weapons.
    "We have bypassed both the United States and Canada." "They have more production, but they consume more, and we produce so much that this allows us to occupy the first place in the international market for the sale of wheat," Putin explained. He added that the growth of agricultural production is 46%. "Our exports have grown exponentially - 2,6 times, for $ 24 billion we sold agricultural products on the foreign market, including not only grain," the president said.

    Poles, as always in Russophobian frenzy))).

    Why does it not occur to them that Russia, developing an army and defense industry, is only responding to the threat from expanding NATO and the growing military power of neighboring China ?!

    Poland, with its huge GDP, huge exports and "powerful" production, had been making corvette for 10 years, but a patrol ship came out, don't understand for what tasks))). And all the same cheeks inflate that they are more powerful than Russia))).

    The export that Poland, that Bangladesh is for the most part exported not by these countries in the face of local business, but by foreign companies that have captured production and sales markets in these countries and export goods through them to other countries, but do it for various reasons - convenient location, cheap labor, preferential taxation, etc.

    Poland constantly lives with a negative trade balance, like most of the countries of the world, more and more increasing debts, except for Russia, Germany and several other countries. Because to assemble and sell Volkswagen Poles, they first need to buy an engine and units with wheels and other things in other countries for this and all other cars))). So it turns out that the cash flow through Poland goes, but it settles not in the budget and in the pockets of the Poles, but in the pockets of foreign businessmen.

    When Cuba was the actual colony of the USA, they exported a huge amount of sugar, providing half of the world's consumption of this product, but only all the profits from this went not to Cuba, but to US companies, also from Poland and Bangladesh and other countries. That is why the Poles are running around Europe in search of work, since she is not at home, she does not have her own factories, but there are imported goods. Just what good is it if you are forced to abandon your family and wander around the world trying to get settled in this life.

    So it is with GDP, if people spend more money on various services and resources - this is reflected in the growth of GDP, they raised the price of gas and gasoline in Ukraine - here you have the GDP growth. If a taxi in Russia costs $ 2 to drive 10 km., And in Poland 10-20, then when you buy such a service, the contribution to Russia’s GDP is $ 2, and Poland 10-20, here’s the difference in the nominal value of the GDP, a factual service one and the same, but the cost and contribution to GDP is different. Many people simply do not understand this.

    Russia does not need to be compared either in Poland or Bangladesh or the United States. Russia should be compared with Russia 5,10, 20 years ago and look at trends. And today we have only one trend - moving forward, we are becoming stronger and better in all directions, no matter what.

    Well, in order for Russia to produce better goods and be in demand, private business must make an effort, everything that is required of the authorities is done, our market is protected by duties, a move has been announced towards import substitution, there are production clusters, etc. - Work and provide for yourself and prosperity for your country and your people. No need to run abroad, there you will always be strangers and they will sacrifice you as soon as the need arises.

    To be honest, who is interested in the opinion of the inhabitants of such a peculiar country as Poland? Poland is an absolute puppet of the United States, Poland traditionally hates, at all levels, everything Russian. For me, that's enough to ignore the "barking behind the fence"
