Military Review

Russia needs to learn how to win without war

196

Today, another, unprecedented Russophobic campaign has been launched in the world, based on a complete review of not only the results, but also the causes of the Second World War, leveling the significance of the victory of the USSR in the Great Patriotic War, the blackening of the state, the successor of which is our country. At this moment, the issue of Russia's ability to adequately and effectively withstand such machinations, to defeat enemies without the use of formidable force, becomes particularly relevant and important. weapons.


The invincibility of Russian soldiers, their ability to defeat any enemy, to survive in the most bloody battles and fierce battles is well-known and not subject to any doubt, as well as the power of the army. However, it must be admitted that with non-military power our situation is far from so unambiguous. The events of 2017 can be cited as not the most pleasant, but, alas, a fairly typical example. Then the complete defeat of the ISIS terrorists (a group banned in the Russian Federation) carried out by the Russian Aerospace Forces in Syria and the disqualification of our Olympic team suspended from participation in the 2018 Games in Seoul for allegedly using doping almost coincided.

A brilliant military operation far from the homeland and a grave failure in the international sports arena. But victories at the leading world competitions are considered to be one of the most significant ways of popularizing a particular state and gaining international prestige and authority. And let everyone perfectly understand that this decision of the IOC was politically motivated, that this organization was almost “openly” conducted from Washington by this organization, inclining to the “necessary” decision - all this is little consolation. After all, in the end, we turned out to be the losers, and the image of Russia (and not just sports) was dealt a very heavy damage.

The non-military power of the state is, of course, not only its “advancement" through sport, culture and diplomacy. Most developed countries use primarily economic leverage to achieve their goals, especially without even hiding it. The United States itself has long turned the economic sanctions they imposed at their own discretion into a lever of influence more seriously than their own aircraft carriers. Our country, of course, will not succeed in anything like this: after all, the world currency is the US dollar, not the Russian ruble, alas ... Retaliatory sanctions against countries of the same EU will certainly harm their economic interests, but we also benefit do not go. Yes, and they certainly do not add a good attitude to Russia.

In the post-Soviet space


Much wider by Moscow throughout the newest Russian stories another method was used. How many times have we tried to “tie” former “brothers” in the Soviet Union to ourselves with the help of various economic preferences, especially preferential energy tariffs and the most favorable conditions for their receipt. What this usually leads to is perfectly demonstrated by the example of Belarus, whose leader took such a policy for granted and, at the very first attempts by the Russian side to translate relations between states into a somewhat more pragmatic plane, turned into almost an inveterate Russophobe.

In this context, it is better not to recall Ukraine in this context. What ended the many years of flirting with the Kremlin rulers there, both seemingly pro-Russian and obvious enemies, we all know. The consequences of the supply of Kiev almost free of gas go sideways to this day - in the form of problems with transit, enslaving contracts and continuous lawsuits. Again, we were able to save Crimea from the threat of a civil war, to prevent the destruction of the Donbass ... But we lost all of Ukraine.

Failure in this direction is precisely the most, perhaps, the saddest example of problems with the non-military strength of Russia. Instead of creating corresponding pro-Russian structures in a fraternal country at least at the level of non-governmental organizations, which at a critical moment would become an antidote to the covertly but steadily cultivated Russophobia there, Moscow provided cheap gas, loans and supported politicians who turned out to be either cowards or traitors. Today we are trying to say something about “protecting the Russian-speaking population” in Ukraine, but Russia was not able to even get Kiev to amend the discriminatory law on education that Budapest “squeezed” out of it in favor of the Hungarian communities.

The concept of "soft power"


The concept of “soft power”, put forward and voiced by the American Joseph Nye, has long been rejected and fiercely criticized in Russia for a long time. Like, these are unworthy methods ... Nevertheless, modern realities force the use of this tactic, since military methods in their conditions to solve global problems to advance the interests of our country are unacceptable.


Since 2013, with the filing of Vladimir Putin, the methods and technologies of “soft power” have been officially included in the foreign policy concept of the country as a comprehensive toolkit for solving its problems. One of the most visible incarnations of this approach to life is the activity of such an organization well known to all as Rossotrudnichestvo. Its role is undoubtedly great: this is evidenced even by the fact that under the blow of the Russophobic scandal that is now being fanned in the Czech Republic, this was also a federal agency.

Nevertheless, the current level of promoting our country's own interests in the world is completely insufficient. A couple of years ago, in the ranking of countries that successfully use “soft power” to achieve their own goals in the international arena, Russia was not only lower than China, but even below the level of Poland or Greece. On top of the list of the United States, Britain, France and say no. We can defeat any enemy on the battlefield. But it would be better for Russia, so that it doesn’t come to that, still learn to win without war.

      To do this, you need to revive the USSR with its power and weight in the world!

          So don't suggest it, Dr. No. Except for you, no one said this. In addition, the new USSR would have done just fine without "fraternal" countries, the union of Belarus, Ukraine and Russia would have been enough. The rest as they want. We will come to the unity of the Slavic republics (with all the peoples of our countries), an imputed power and a socially just system will come, we will revive both the power of the country and respect for it.

        Alexander, indeed, will not work differently.
        Ilya Erenburg. Kukryniksy. Yuri Levitan were PERSONAL enemies of Hitler. And who is the enemy of the West now?
        And what today:
        - There is no ideology.
        -Media (print media. TV, rambler and Co.) in the hands of the "elite" Ie Nothing STATE
        actually not.
        - To a journalist / reporter. If that, in the West, they will not give a visa under ANY far-fetched pretext.
        -NO SCHOOL, NO CONTINUITY.
        Unless concern and deep regrets. And cancellation of debts.
        There is no economy. There is (yet) REALLY powerful sun. For Russia has only two allies. As Alexander 3 said.
        As the Anglo-Saxons say "A rolling stone gathers no moss".

    Nevertheless, the current level of promoting our country's own interests in the world is completely insufficient.

    I absolutely agree ... when you constantly hear the regrets and perplexities of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs over the filth of the Anglo-Saxons ... you think My God and these people represent our country.
    We cannot protect our citizens from theft by the Americans ... what can we say about soft power ... we cannot stop the war in LDN ... we cannot stop the bacchanalia of the demolition and destruction of monuments in Eastern Europe ... while our country is economically weak so apply soft power to our neighbors.

    The author touched on a topic that is very multifaceted.
    In the Soviet Union under comrade Joseph Vissarionovich Stalin, there was personal responsibility for the acts and for the lies.
    Then they did not hesitate to conduct even violent actions against imported figures, and somehow this, almost magically, made them behave almost decently. This was especially noticeable against the background of the first half of the last century, when in general no norms even of decency were observed.
    Impunity corrupts.

    A high standard of living in the country, decent remuneration for work, equality of all citizens before the law, regardless of their material condition and position, implementation by the state and a guarantee of all the rights and freedoms of citizens, as well as protecting them from encroachments by anyone, taking into account the opinions of citizens when developing various laws and regulations, protecting citizens with the full power of the diplomatic corps and military power of the state, no matter where they are, etc., are the main indicators of "soft power" that would work for Russia better than any intimidating "cartoons". Unfortunately, in this regard, Russia has nothing to boast about, except for "leavened patriotism" and "the whole world in dust" - it has nothing to offer either its citizens or anyone else beyond its borders ...

            Yes. But right now I'm more interested in "creating a really meaningful society", in the interpretation of comrade rocket757. The fact is that I do not know of any way to create a really meaningful society that does not attract the unhealthy interest of the "competent authorities". Both to the method and to the society itself.

                And what did it show ..?. That godlessly stupid, unprofessional people are engaged in all these conspiracies, and the system is in good professional shape ... But like any good system, it works well against single targets in an easy jamming environment and when there is no shortage of required resources and there are not a large number of professionals from another parties (which increases the uncertainty) .... i.e. in a stable, slowly developing and predictable environment ... And it also showed that the people are mostly shy and quite happy with the situation.

                  Is logical. Social network is a whistle through which excess pressure comes out of the system .... noisy, not pleasant, but for most, it is completely safe.
                  At the expense of self-sacrifice and circumstances, that's right. I always wrote that the upper, quite competent advisers work. And the science of controlling the crowd and other masses, if it has not reached perfection, is not far from that! And they use it to the fullest.
                  Butting, of course, goes, but more verbal.
                  Therefore, they do not bite, i.e. talkers do not touch us, we do not pose any threat to the upper ones. Society, now, is difficult to ignite with "fiery" speeches, and no one really strives for real deeds!
                  It should be like a butt on the head, and even more abruptly, if the "refrigerator" will have to be hit, BUT, this is what the upper ones understand and take the necessary steps so that society does not stir up immediately and specifically.

          Well, these people in the central part of Russia are more or less law-abiding, because they still have at least some opportunity to find a job and live more or less securely, and therefore they "protest" only "on the couch", but on the periphery, where people do not have work and people live mainly by "illegal methods" - poaching, illegal logging, unauthorized mining of gold and precious stones, etc. there no one really talks with the authorities and their supporters, they seem to be tired of it already:

          "In Siberia, the camp site of the ex-prefect of Moscow was burned and the gamekeepers were killed." A tragedy happened at a well-known hunting camp in the Tomsk region last night. On Khardikovaya Zayimka, unknown persons killed the gamekeepers and burned all the buildings. The founder of the capture, businessman Yuri Khardikov, a former prefect of the Moscow Central Administrative District, announced the tragedy.

    High standard of living in the country
    So now in Russia the standard of living is much higher than in the RSFSR
    decent remuneration for labor
    The remuneration for work should not be "worthy" but fair. Those who want to work make good money, and let the mediocre ones look for more useful applications.
    equal rights of all citizens before the law
    And this is in Russia.
    State exercise and guarantee of all rights and freedoms of citizens
    Oooooo! Yes, monsieur liberazd, however. Today you have "freedom and consideration of opinions", and tomorrow you will start dancing about the Garden Ring in pink gay parades.

    Secondly, their slander against the Soviet period is the only justification for the capture of Russia in 30 years, and their ideology, their history of their country.
    Thirdly, the enemies of the communists in the world are evil totalitarians, they want everyone to "walk in formation", do, speak, write only what the enemies of the communists need, and they severely punish each other when one of them themselves " goes out of order "like Yanukovych and Putin.

And unite, looking for common ground. And this is the most important thing - not to let the country disappear and revive it.

    First, how can the enemies of the Communists who have captured Russia

    But how did the Communists invade Russia in 1917 ....
    if they are not even able to defend themselves, they can only whine in chorus that they have nothing to do with it.
    just like your favorite communists in 1991. Even snot about "we have nothing to do with" you repeated as Gorbachev and company
    Secondly, their slander against the Soviet period is the only justification for the capture of Russia in 30 years, and their ideology, their history of their country.
    Just like a criticism of the provisional and tsarist government after the coup in 1917. They say that the king was bad and Kerensky bad, so we overthrew them ...
    Thirdly, the enemies of the communists in the world are evil totalitarians, they want everyone to "walk in formation", do, say, write only what the enemies of the communists need,
    Just to write "what is necessary" your communists loved. And those who wrote "what is not necessary" they planted.

                Yes, as I already wrote here, the people on the territory of the USSR all 100 years after the October Revolution are divided into Soviet and anti-Soviet. And if the Soviet people, both 100 years ago and now, had and still have the same convictions, then your anti-Soviet people always pretend to be those who are beneficial to you at the moment. And there is no difference between those of you who pretended to be communists and their supporters under the communist rule for the sake of profit, and under Gorbachev, and since him, proved their fierce hatred of the communists, and all of you who, for the sake of profit, in your anti-Soviet regime, pretend to be "great philanthropists", and in relation to the people in the Russian Empire and the republics of the USSR you captured, they proved your real inhuman nature.

                  Nooo, let's not confuse concepts and not mix flies with cutlets). Soviet power is the power of "soviets", that is, elected bodies and with this slogan (among others) the Bolshevik Party seized power. And only then came the "Leading and guiding force", became the only real power in the country, and the role of the "councils" proper was completely emasculated. And if the "soviets" had real influence, the very "decomposition of the party nomenklatura" might not have happened. That is why the Communist Party receives full responsibility for the collapse of the USSR.

    Good morning, dear forum users!
    Here is the topic of "soft power" or information war. That we are losing this area.
    Tell me, what prevents you from being more aggressive in politics? Maybe enough to pretend to be so righteous and honest? Who needs this?
    Mok say offended? And why not substitute them with anything? And to spread to the whole planet, what kind of chmyry, hoopoes?
    Ukraine about ..... whether? So what prevented there from the beginning to remove a few odious ones by substituting it on the Internet or the media?
    What prevented doing so as enemies do?
    What prevents the response to the demolition of the monuments of our Great Patriotic War to answer all the mongrels by the demolition of all desecrated places on our land by their presence.
    How much time has passed to understand that in a pack of jackals there are no principles and norms of behavior. As they are, so are we. And reinforce by other methods. What, well, it’s not for me to teach power. They (the authorities) know how to substitute the people, but they don’t know how to answer the bastards?
    Or DO NOT WANT?

    The world has been using methods of "soft power", as it can be called, since the beginning of the First World War. Daniel Estulin - Tavistock Institute writes about this well in his book ".

    The Tavistock Institute, located in Sussex, England, is a global center for brainwashing and manipulating society. In this sensational book, Estulin exposes the Tavistock network and reveals methods of controlling consciousness that are constantly adapting and nowadays take the form of large-scale projects of social engineering.

In the 70s I had to visit the shipyards of the GDR, and often over a glass of "tea" I had conversations with old workers. So practically no one condemned Hitler, his method of government and the unleashing of WWII. About the Second World War, they said that Adik had to stop after the capture of Ukraine, and return everything else to the Soviets. This is the result of a scientifically formulated ideology.

          Old German workers do not always understand geopolitics.

          It would be interesting to see how events would unfold for Germany if the Nazi forces stopped the attack after the capture of Ukraine.
          It seems that in this situation, by the year 43, the "old workers" who at that time served in the Volkssturm began to shoot in Berlin

    The US is crushing sanctions not because of the dollar. Currency is only a consequence.
    The United States has a large domestic market, has patents and rights to produce key technologies, and also it is American universities that issue the world political elite, with an already formed love for the United States.
    But I would not agree with the author, US sanctions, this is not soft power.
    That is American culture. At the moment, the most powerful are American TV shows and American video games. It seems funny, but it is. People between 15 and 50 are hooked on American TV shows. And all young people are stuck in American video games.

    The author wants something strange. Neither more nor less, he wants from power, just count from all, mind! It is absolutely impossible, author. The concept of "development" adopted by our state is a simple two-tier structure. Namely - from below "population". Above are the rulers.
    What is required of the population? Sit on the priest evenly, pay when they say and not bother the rulers with their existence, that is, do not interfere with the division of income from minerals. It would be possible to exterminate this annoying population altogether (attempts are made periodically), but there is a catch - the country must be protected. So the main requirement for the population is compliance with ingenious PR technologies, such as pressing a button and the population immediately becomes "unpretentious and courageous", ready to die for the wealth of the rulers.
    What is required of the rulers? To share, and unitedly try to increase their share in the division of minerals, while not killing each other if possible .. Where did the author see the mind, skills, education, broad horizons, patriotism and other indisputably excessive fighting qualities? All this has absolutely no place in the governance structure of our country.
    No actions of those that the author finds desirable are simply impossible by the composition of the people that rule us ...

I still wonder how the Kremlin propaganda has made Putin almost a genius in world politics, a great multi-walker and grandmaster amid obvious defeats. As people cannot or do not want to understand that neither the war in Ukraine nor the deaths of our military in Georgia, this could not have happened if this soft power had somehow worked there! Putin and Co. simply left all neighbors to the mercy of fate, who were immediately taken up by caring hands. What is the foreign policy in the post-Soviet space? yes no! Hence these two wars, the color revolutions, the crowding out of the Russian language, the migration problem. This damn complete failure! The creation of a union state with fraternal peoples is a real victory, at least for me. If the CIS is such a madhouse, then what can we say about distant frontiers ... I have only two conclusions from all this mess: either Putin was simply bought with cheap covers of glossy magazines or he has some other goals and soft power is simply not needed by anyone there.

The people in power are the same people who betrayed their country, who killed the state to satisfy their own ambitions and philistine needs, surrendered the country to plunder without a fight and brought the people to their knees before the enemy. Therefore, these people, more like a puppet colonial administration, under the leadership of external instruments of neo-colonial administration of the Central Bank and the Higher School of Economics, concerned exclusively with making a profit from this territory, spitting on the people, their history and in no way connecting their future, are not capable of creativity and development, and tb uncompromising struggle to defend the interests of the state and its people, everything is measured by the loot and personal preferences of the overseas owner, everything else is an imitation of the state and democracy.

    The concept of “soft power”, put forward and voiced by the American Joseph Nye, has long been rejected and fiercely criticized in Russia for a long time. Like, these are unworthy methods ...
    And what are these methods if, for example, Gorbachev was promised not to expand NATO to the East? The Soviet Union was just ruined by the naive hope of peace and friendship with the antipode, the mortal enemy that the USSR and generally strong Russia only wanted to see in the grave. We were outplayed in propaganda and advertising, we were cheated by the political cheaters of capitalism.

    Now about the curtsy of the author.
    Again, we were able to save Crimea from the threat of a civil war, to prevent the destruction of the Donbass ... But we lost all of Ukraine.
    Ukraine, not just lost, but mediocre, "sorry", pissed away. This is despite the fact that practically the entire South-East of Ukraine was for Russia, gave signals, waited for action. This is despite the fact that Putin was delegated the right to take decisive action to protect the constitutional power in a neighboring CIS member. This is despite the fact that the legitimate president of Ukraine and his prime minister were with us. What prevented the US and the CIA from organizing an anti-constitutional coup, what prevented, if not bringing in troops, then at least not recognizing the farce with the elections organized by the junta under, again, the tune of the CIA and the US State Department? We recognize the referendum in Crimea, we do not recognize the referendums in the Donbass, and, again, recognizing the "elections" in Ukraine, we help to legalize the Bandera, anti-Russian government. “Let them just try!”, They remain words, they tried, in Donbass they have been killing Russians for 6 years, and different “talking heads”, such “devil's advocates” are finding new arguments for the “cunning plan”.

    There is capitalism, into which Russia has climbed, in capitalism there is a world master. So, it was enough for Didier Burkhalter to come to Moscow in May 2014, and it became clear who had the money of our powers that be, where their "feeding hand" was. Everything else from the evil one is "officially included as a comprehensive toolkit for solving its problems, methods and technologies of" soft power "." Our government has learned to puff its cheeks, raising the falling ratings, but having picked up capitalism, it will be forced to listen to those in whose pole of power it is, under whose laws and rules it has climbed, finally remembering in whose currency and who has their treasures acquired in Russia backbreaking work. So, what is the "bazaar" about, against whom will we have "soft" or "hard" power?

It's not only renegades, they weren't communists, opportunists, careerists, politicians lost, our propaganda lost. As I already said, the USSR died because we all believed that a peaceful existence with the West was possible, that they deceived us, they did not tell us. Finally, the majority simply wanted "jeans and chewing gum", generally the sweetness of the forbidden fruit from the ostentatious gloss of the West. Well, now there is something to compare with, and capitalism has thrown off its sheep skins, showed its true identity.

      There are no former communists, and those who betrayed an idea are more than traitors. As the saying goes, "May everyone be rewarded according to his deeds," and socialism will return, we simply cannot survive without it.

    Figuratively speaking, the West directed our country to the wrong path, where ambushes were located. While smart people were swearing at the Soviet Union, they were waiting in the wings. But half-literate people spoke, and the West decided, Our time has come. Even very smart people started talking that The people brought the USSR victory. And not a word about the Red Army. As if it did not exist.

    The power of the country of 3 components: army, economy and diplomacy. Anglo-Saxon war, implies all these areas, in contrast to the Russian war.

    Winning without war is best done using the example of the Life Level of Your Citizens. Officials (including vip) should be the first (equal in responsibility for their affairs) among equal (according to their rights) citizens of the country, and not use special rights as an exception to the law- even at least personal emergency lights ...

    The enemies of the communists who have seized Russia do not respect their country and people, the history of their country, they, to the detriment of the reputation of their country, rush "with their breasts" to defend the enemies of their country - White Finns, White Poles who seized the territory of Russia, and others, to justify Hitler and the Nazis who our country, to praise the collaborators of their country in the Civil and Great Patriotic War. They do not even respect themselves, they have a bunch of show-off, but they have no self-esteem at all, for 30 years they cowardly whine that they have nothing to do with responsibility for their seizure of Russia and for everything they have done with Russia and its people. So who, then, in the world will respect them and the State created by them?

    Learn how to spit in the history of your country. The West does not know how.

    But it would be better for Russia, so that it doesn’t come to that, still learn to win without war.


    The methods and methods of action of soft power often contradict our spirit, the spirit of truth and justice, and therefore we cannot use it as Western countries.

    Why are we losing? Because there are such scribblers about a certain “soft power” and other non-scientific crap. There is propaganda, agitation, counter-propaganda. Since the days of the USSR, everything has been at the highest level. US diplomats were withdrawn at the request of the USSR, when he blurted out something wrong. Just stupid people came who ruined everything and now every European mongrel has us.

    I support your opinion.
    And here it is // Simply stupid people came who ruined everything and now every European mongrel has us // at least disrespect for professionals. ..Logic, my friend ..- either you are stupid, or they are. And all at once, well, that’s already ... I don’t know.

    In order for the so-called "soft power" to operate outside the country, one, but very important condition is necessary:
    - the country that uses it should be an example in the most important part for the vast majority of people on earth - the standard of living.
    In a broad sense, from material wealth and the possibility of obtaining it by one’s own efforts, to the guaranteed guarantee by this country of the rights and freedoms of its citizens.
    Without this, all possible boltological methods of "Russia Today" and so on are meaningless and cause only a smile.
    And if the leadership of this country adheres to the principle "love us as we are, otherwise we will bang", then it will not give anything good.
    Love for something, but first of all for a positive example.

    We have no attractive idea. And there is no globally personal example that our way of life is correct (both materially and socially). And there is no soft power, there is not enough power for economic coercion (we ourselves are dependent), there is no really frightening military force (everyone talks about it, but no one is afraid in the depths). Therefore, we can neither attract allies, nor win without war. All these are empty, unrealizable fantasies in the foreseeable historical perspective. Well, what victories, even if we are not able to articulate anything intelligible and put into practice even in a crisis situation? (see fight against a pandemic). We have all beggars allies beggars (who are ready to betray us at any moment and certainly will not fight for us), everyone runs away from us, as if from a plague.

    Honestly, the policy of the Russian Federation in Ukraine has failed.
    The bet was on the elite and financial infusion, it did not work.
    Anglo-Saxons worked with the population (youth), since the 80s emissaries from Canada went to Ukraine. He himself was driving from Moscow to about Lviv.
    You can talk about Uniates and their churches for a long time, about aiding the Nazis, usw.

      The policy achieves its goal. And we were told what was the goal? Let's see what has been achieved: Ukraine is not only the "former USSR", it is also the "former Russia".
