Russia and England have no common borders, geographically distant from each other. It would seem that two great powers can be, if not friendly, then neutral. England practically did not wage a full-scale war against Russia itself (excluding the Crimean War), but the secret war (inciting neighbors against Russia) did not stop for centuries. London has always been in unfriendly relations with Russia: tsarist, Soviet and democratic.
England is our main enemy
Over the past centuries, England has been the most terrible and dangerous enemy of Russia. She did us more harm than Napoleon and Hitler. In the XX and XXI centuries. England shares this place with the United States, which has continued and developed Britain's policy of creating a world empire. If you look at history Germany, France, Turkey or Japan, here you can find objective reasons for the conflict with Russia: historical, territorial, religious, economic or diplomatic. Most often it was a natural (biological) struggle for a place in the sun.
The ongoing conflict with England was different. It is caused by a conceptual deep confrontation. It is prompted by the desire of England (and then the United States) to rule the world, embodying the ancient strategy of Rome: divide and conquer. The Russian world on Earth has the mission of maintaining a measure of balance. Therefore, any attempts by one center of control (throne) to take on the role of "king of the mountain" (planet) provokes resistance from the Russian people. As a result, for centuries London has been trying to solve the "Russian question": to dismember and remove Russians and Russia from the historical arena. Russia is still resisting this onslaught.
Russia and England never had common borders, did not claim the same lands. Russia expanded its borders, made the new lands Russian. Britain was creating a world colonial (slave) empire. Russia and England gave the world two examples of global projects-orders. The Russian order is the unity of people, regardless of race, religion and nation. A life of truth, conscience and love. Orthodoxy is the glory of truth. Spirit is higher than matter, truth is higher than law, the general is higher than the particular. The western order dominated by London is slavery. The world of masters-slave-owners and "talking tools". The domination of matter, the "golden calf".
It was London that created the world slave empire, which became an example for Hitler. The British were the first to create the ideology of racism, social Darwinism and eugenics. They built the first concentration camps, used the methods of terror and genocide to subdue the "inferior" peoples and tribes. For example, in North America, South Africa, India and Australia. The British skillfully used the tribal, national elite (elite) to subjugate huge masses of people.
If it were not for this conceptual confrontation (at the level of “what is good and what is bad”), the two powers could well have lived peacefully and cooperated. At least not to notice each other. For example, this is how the Russian kingdom and Spain lived, the great colonial empire (before it was ousted from the world arena by the French, Dutch and British). Russia is a continental power, and England is a maritime one. The bottom line, however, is that London claims world domination. And Russia stands in the way of anyone who claims to be the "king of the hill." As a result, Foggy Albion is definitely to blame for all the conflicts between Russia and England. It is difficult to find a country in the world that the "Englishwoman" has not done wrong. These are Spain, France, and Germany, with which England fought for leadership in Europe, and even a small Denmark. You can also remember the atrocities of the British in America, Africa, India and China.
"The Englishwoman crap"
For the first time, interest in Russia in England appeared during the Great Geographical Discoveries. In fact, at this time, Europeans discovered the world for themselves and raped, robbed it (the initial accumulation of capital). England was looking for an alternative route to wealthy India and China across the polar seas. In the XNUMXth century, Europeans made several expeditions to find the Northeast (around Siberia) and Northwest (around Canada) passages and to obtain new passages to the Pacific Ocean. Captain Richard Chancellor was received by Tsar Ivan IV the Terrible. Since that time, diplomatic and trade relations between Russia and England began. The British were interested in trade with Russia and the exit through it along the Volga road to Persia and further south. Since that time, Britain in every possible way prevents Moscow from reaching the shores of the Baltic and Black Seas.
So, under Peter I, London, on the one hand, developed trade with Russia, on the other hand, it supported allied Sweden in the war with the Russians. Also, the British stood behind Turkey in almost all Russian-Turkish wars. For this reason, the English ambassador to Constantinople (like the Dutch and French) tried to thwart the conclusion of peace between Russia and Turkey in 1700. England wanted to destroy the germs of Russian shipbuilding in Arkhangelsk and Azov, to prevent Russia from breaking through to the Baltic and the Black Sea.
This hostile London policy continued in the future. The British were behind Russia's wars with Turkey, Persia and Sweden. Prussia acted as "cannon fodder" of England in the Seven Years War. During the reign of Catherine the Great, Russia was able to inflict two "pricks" on England: with its policy, it supported the American Revolution (War of Independence) and proclaimed a policy of armed neutrality, which led to the creation of an anti-British alliance of the Nordic countries. Under the onslaught of almost all of Europe, the British lion had to retreat. On the whole, Catherine skillfully avoided the traps of England and pursued a national policy. As a result, huge successes: the annexation of the West Russian lands and the reunification of the Russian people, a wide access to the Black Sea.
After Catherine II, England was able to take revenge. London pulled Petersburg into a long confrontation with Paris (How Russia became the figure of England in the big game against France; Part 2). This led to a series of wars and heavy human and material losses in Russia (including the Patriotic War of 1812). Russia had no fundamental contradictions and disputes with France. We had no common boundaries. That is, Petersburg could calmly leave the conflict with revolutionary France, and then with Napoleon's empire in Vienna, Berlin and London. Emperor Paul realized his mistake and withdrew the troops. He was ready to conclude an alliance with Paris, to oppose England, the real enemy of Russia. But he was killed by aristocratic conspirators. English gold killed the Russian emperor. Alexander I could not get out of the influence of his "friends", pressure from England, and Russia fell into a trap, into a fierce conflict with France. Russian soldiers in the anti-Napoleonic wars (except for the Patriotic War) shed blood for the interests of London, Vienna and Berlin.
London set Iran and Turkey against Russia in 1826-1829. He did not let Nicholas I occupy Constantinople. Britain acted as the organizer of the Eastern (Crimean) War; in fact, it was one of the rehearsals for the future world war. True, it was not possible to knock out the Russians from the Baltic and the Black Sea, as planned. Then there was a big game in Central Asia. The Russo-Turkish War of 1877-1878, when London managed to take away from Russia the deserved fruits of the victory over the Turks, including the sphere of influence in the Balkans, Constantinople and the Straits. The British lion allied with the Japanese dragon against China and Russia. With the help of England, Japan defeated both China and Russia. The Russians were pushed back from the greater Far East, Port Arthur and Zheltorosiya (Manchuria) were taken away. At the same time, the British special services were actively fanning the fire of the First Revolution in the Russian Empire.
Britain successfully dragged Russia into a confrontation with Germany, although the Russian Tsar and the German Kaiser had no serious reasons for much blood (England vs Russia. Getting involved in World War I and “help” during the war; England vs Russia. Organization of the February Revolution). The British skillfully rounded up both the Germans and the Russians, pitting them against each other. Destroyed two empires. England supported the February Revolution, which led to the collapse of Russia and turmoil. The British did not save Nicholas II and his family, although there were opportunities. The big game was more important than dynastic ties. London took an active part in unleashing the Civil War in Russia, which led to millions of victims. The British hoped that the collapse and weakening of Russia - forever. They captured strategic points in the Russian North, the Caucasus and the Caspian Sea, consolidated their positions in the Baltic and Black Sea.
World War II and the Cold War
London's plans to destroy Russia have failed. The Russians recovered from the terrible blow and created a new great power - the USSR. Then London relied on fascism and Nazism in Europe. British capital took the most active part in the restoration of German military-economic might. British diplomacy so "pacified" the Third Reich that it gave him most of Europe, including France. Almost all of Europe was gathered under the banner of Hitler and thrown against the USSR (Hitler was only a tool to crush the USSR). Then they waited when it would be possible to finish off the Russians and Germans, who had been bled out of the mutual massacre. It didn't work out. At the head of Russia-USSR was a great statesman and leader - Stalin. The Russians emerged victorious in this terrible battle.
The British had to play the role of an "ally" of the USSR in order to take part in the division of the inheritance of the Third Reich. After the fall of Berlin, the head of Britain, Churchill, wanted to start World War III almost immediately (in the summer of 1945). The war of the Western democracies against the USSR. However, the moment was recognized as unfortunate. It was impossible to defeat the Russian troops in Europe, which at first retreated to Leningrad, Moscow and Stalingrad, then went forward, took Warsaw, Budapest, Koenigsberg, Vienna and Berlin. But already in 1946 in Fulton (USA) Churchill made the famous speech that marked the beginning of the third world war (it was called "cold") between the West and the USSR. In the course of this war, England almost continuously started "hot" local wars. In 1945-1946. - intervention in Vietnam, Burma, Indonesia and Greece. In the 1948-1960s - the aggression in Malaya, the war in Korea (in terms of the number of soldiers and aircraft England was second only to the United States in the western ranks), the confrontation in South Arabia, conflicts in Kenya, Kuwait, Cyprus, Oman, Jordan, Yemen and Egypt (Suez Crisis). Only the existence of the USSR on the planet did not allow England and the United States to establish their own world order during this period, which would be approximately the same as Hitler's.
In the 1917th century, Britain twice managed to push their heads against two great powers, two peoples who were a threat to London: Germany and Russia, Germans and Russians. The British twice crushed their main enemy in the Western project - Germany. Russia was destroyed once - in XNUMX. For the second time, the Soviet empire learned a lesson from previous defeats and won a great victory. The result was the collapse of the British Empire itself, over which the sun never set. England became the junior partner of the United States.
However, this does not mean that England has ceased to be an enemy of Russia. First, London has retained some of its global influence. This is the Commonwealth of Nations (over 50 countries), led by the British crown. This is British finance capital. This is British cultural influence. Secondly, England has retained its particular hostility in relations with Russia, even "democratic". Britain's relations with Russia are significantly worse than with other NATO members, for example, with Germany, France, Italy and Spain. This was shown by the hysteria of England during the Georgian aggression in South Ossetia in 2008, and the "Crimean spring", and the war in Donbass.
Recently, London has again intensified its policy in connection with the "Russian threat". Thus, from the parliamentary report in the UK of the Intelligence and Security Committee on July 21, 2020, it is clear that London is again targeting Russia. The report notes that Russia is a priority for the British special services with the allocation of additional resources; a special group is being formed to develop a national security strategy in relation to Russia, which consists of representatives of 14 ministries and agencies; attention is directed to Russia's alliances with other countries; refusal to effectively use ordinances on unexplained welfare in order to seize property of the Russian elite acquired with unconfirmed income. That is, the British special services realized that the seizure of capital and property from the Russian oligarchs does not lead them to cooperation, on the contrary, it repels them. Therefore, the British removed the threat of seizure of property and accounts. The real estate and accounts of Russian oligarchs are inviolable in order to create a network of British influence in Russia. Part of the Russian "elite" is guaranteed immunity under the British crown after fulfilling its mission in Russia.
Thus, England shows that in the context of the current global systemic crisis, the West is again interested in creating the Maidan Troubles in Russia.
