French press: Can Russia create anything other than hindering others?

117

In recent years, Russia has made significant progress. But the country's future plans are still difficult to predict.


Frederic Chariyon writes about this in an article published by the French edition of L'Opinion.

He is trying to find out whether Russia today is capable of giving the world "anything but hindering others?" Is it capable of becoming a factor of stability? Actually, the author has no doubts about the capabilities of our country, but he is not sure whether Moscow wants this.

Shariyon believes that Russia began to be viewed as a world power again after it defended South Ossetia from Georgian aggression. This was followed by the annexation of Crimea, the war in Donbass, the return of the Russian Federation to the Middle East, the Mediterranean and Africa.

The French author notes that our country has no allies. She does not fully trust China, and she is not doing very well with the former Soviet republics. Some warming of relations with European countries is noticeable, but you cannot yet call them allied.

The strengthening of Russia's position in the world is obvious, but it is not yet entirely clear why it needs this? So far, the "hand of Moscow" is visible everywhere, but more often as a hindrance to someone's plans.

After the adoption of amendments to the Constitution of the Russian Federation, theoretically, Putin can remain in power until 2036. Shariyon sees several scenarios for the further development of events in Russia and options for its foreign policy. According to him, one of the scenarios for Russia could be a repetition of the Brezhnev stagnation with the country's aging leader.

As another option, the Frenchman is considering the possibility that Putin has a long-conceived geopolitical project, the implementation of which he will continue. In this case, Russia may run into sharp opposition from other powers that do not want to compromise their interests.

As the third option, he considers the Russian Federation's focus on domestic politics and the strengthening of the presidential power. In this case, according to Shariyon, Putin will try to relieve external tension. The French author considers this option to be the most acceptable, but not the most probable.

Now the United States and Europe can only try to guess in which direction Russia will move so as not to be mistaken in their own strategy.

      Objectively??? Are you kidding me, sir?
      He is trying to find out whether Russia today is capable of giving the world "anything but hindering others?"
      Besides interfering with others? For a long time, it is us who have been hindered, and not we who have been someone!
      So far, the "hand of Moscow" is visible everywhere, but most often as a hindrance to someone's plans.
      Again the hand of Moscow? And that legs, or other organs are not visible beyond the cordon?
      Now the United States and Europe can only try to guess in which direction Russia will move so as not to be mistaken in their own strategy.
      How else ?! Usually, only the USA and Europe are moving. And what about Russia, continue to sit on the priest exactly ??

        I grew up in a time of "stagnation".
        Then came the times of settling down - perestroika, the collapse of the country, the robbery of the country's population, the sale of the country's resources, and the cherry on the cake - raising the retirement age ...

        I am for "stagnation". The time when there was stability. The time when we could build our future.

          I think the term should be given to officials.
          You serve as an official for a certain period.
          Then a full check - the compliance of the family's well-being with the official's salary, the fulfillment of the assigned duties.
          In case of unsatisfactory results, the state will be reimbursed for the funds spent on the official. Return the z.p. to the treasury.
          And then to the people.

          Are there many willing to serve the state?

              This thesis is already outdated. In the era of computerization and the development of neural networks, this is a solvable problem. And it seems to me that the program will cost no more than half of what was stolen during the construction of the Vostochny cosmodrome.
              However, I can be wrong in both directions.

            Here is a colleague, for example, rejoices at stagnation. Let's define what stagnation is. For all of us, our beloved and respected colleague, St. Petrov (Soldier of the President - what is the level of valor!) I have derived three axioms (postulates) of economics. I have to repeat them.

            1. If the economy does not develop, it gets worse.
            2. If the economy develops, but worsens faster, then it gets worse.
            3. If the economy develops faster than it worsens, then it develops.

            What is a deteriorating economy? Aging of fixed assets, turning them into non-repairable;
            lack of modernization due to backwardness or underdevelopment of science; bankruptcy and, as a consequence, the closure of enterprises with their subsequent destruction;
            and so on.
            On this issue, experts can say a lot.
            The economy is always destroyed. Simply due to the natural aging of technology and, as a consequence, the lack of demand for its products. The process of economic destruction can only be resisted by a counter process - by development through the construction of new industries and the introduction of new technologies. Or modernization of old production facilities. Remember how Mr. Medvedev was buzzing our ears about modernization? Apparently there was something weak. Axiom No. 2 has been fulfilled. Yes, colleagues, we are stagnant, and we seem to be breathing. But read this axiom carefully. We live by it. Investigations are not far off. It's time to move on to axiom N3. Lagging behind in the economic process is like death.
            1. For example

              Young lady, smart is not the one who comes up with a bicycle again.
              You threw a lecture here ...
              Only this has already passed.
              And more than once.

              As for economics, you wrote everything correctly ...

              Never heard of - economy for people?

              You, like many before you, are trying to convince people who lived in the USSR of the opposite.
              The postulate "people for the economy" does not suit us who lived in the USSR.

              I do not accept.
              Accordingly, all your arguments are down the drain.

              As a result of your economy, we do not drink milk, but rubbish with milk flavor.
              We eat rubbish instead of sausage, butter, cottage cheese.
              Making more steel, but making steel shit.

              Technological progress has led to mental regression. It is a fact.

              Your economy needs consumers. Let them consume shit.

              In Russia in the last century, people built and lived in a state where the economy worked for people, and not vice versa.
              Of course, there were many mistakes, for this is a new thing in human history.
              BUT there were goals to build a state for the people.

              And in your opinion, people are for the state. Remember the chaos in the heads.
              I think it is in the heads of those like you that stagnation lives.
              Stagnation of the human soul.

            Stagnation has no future.


            Stagnation of stagnation of strife, in one case it is stagnation with subsequent degradation, in the other it is a calm and progressive development without wars, revolutions, etc.

              Stagnation has no future.

              That light time was called stagnation later.
              When the hunchback decided to sell the country to him, they whispered to him that it was necessary to call the time stagnation, which in fact was comfortable for a person's life.

              This is the Western way of calling white black and yelling everywhere. that so is the network. And who does not agree to the sanctions.

              So, Brezhnev's stagnation suits me.
              The trouble is that no one will be able to repeat this stagnation in my lifetime.
              The kinka is thin.

              God willing, children or grandchildren will return the country to a human track.

              From this point of view, you are speaking correctly. I agree. But, do not forget about who and how much honestly plays. For example, we are building SP-2 in agreement with Germany, proceeding from common financial interests. How does the USA work? They cannot interrupt our proposal, but they can direct half of the world at us in order to prevent the implementation of this project - they can and do this. So who's stopping whom, and in this case? No, of course, of course we are also hindering the United States, but we are hindering them only by the fact that we can make a more favorable offer, in contrast to them. And this happens in all areas. Moreover, they also prevent everyone from acquiring independence within countries. Everywhere their puppets are shoved. They arrange coups and overthrows of the current government. Yes, if you look from the point of view of the United States, we are also very hindered by them, for example, by removing the President of Syria, by hindering the robbery of us further (as they have been accustomed to doing since the 90s), hindering them in Ukraine, hindering them in Europe. Yes, there are many more where we interfere with them. And we are not the only ones who interfere with them. But, if you look from this side, then it will also be a view from the vulture, and not the creator.

                You mean that the Revolution would have happened anyway. Not in Russia, but somewhere else. And the USSR in one form or another, but it would have formed.

                And the facts are such that it was in Russia that the Revolution took place, it was Russia that became the existential nucleus, so to speak, of a great country.
                History, as you know, does not favor the subjunctive mood. And to reproach Russia for the fact that it is not the USSR is to renounce its past, and hence the future.

      And in fact, she introduced her into the circle of the victorious powers of Nazism.

      But the perplexed phrases sounded yes :
      And these, what, also defeated us?

      The phrase was uttered by Wilhelm Keitel, pointing to the French representatives at the signing of the Act of Surrender (since France was under German occupation for most of the war, which, in fact, Keitel accepted)

    Of course, if some position themselves as enemies, then they will not get anything but "interference" (to put it mildly) from Russia. And if they are very greyhounds, then "hindrances", for some, will smoothly grow into a specific "kirdyk". Thank you, in the 90s Russia was already friends with everyone. I barely got out.

    Closed, it's not literal. The goal is for everyone to hate and fear us.
    What do we broadcast from all screens? There are enemies everywhere, enemies inside Russia (especially if you listen to Solovyov).
    For example, we have 340 thousand Rosgvardia. Isn't it too much to contain such an armada for internal protests?

    How many respected independent news channels in the country? ;) I only know one, the rest are a stretch.
    Internet not with coupons? No ... but of course we will keep silent about the Yarovaya law, about SORM-2, etc. too :)
    And the population does not need to be totally controlled, it is enough to keep it at bay and frighten it with external and internal enemies, and do with it what you want. And for the most daring, there is an article.

    But honestly .. I do not understand why our stubborn rulers, century after century, come the same rake. We must grab everything in one hand, and rule until you move the horses. Of course, then a revolution, a lot of victims, and again everything in a circle.

    For this, democracy has long been invented, only those who are in power are robbing, but robbing so as not to shine, and do not allow to rob local mayors, governors, cops, etc. And calmly rule, putting any idiot in the place of presidents , who, if the elites so desire, will not be able to do anything if they decide to kick.
    And the people are fed, and the government is not in poverty.

    Yes Yes. It is Russia that is creating obstacles to the Nord Stream, it is it that introduces sanctions (obstacles), and the sanctions are exclusively lobbyist. Regarding France itself, perhaps Russia is to blame for the fact that instead of cooperation in the field of ship construction, Russia is independently building helicopter carriers? The geopolitical project of Russia, which, according to Frederic Chariyon, is being built by Putin, is the restoration of sovereignty (so far attempts), which, in turn, France has lost and takes important decisions on orders.

    Well, yes, it would be great if the permanent Putin did take and for once wrote some opus called a plan for Russia, which could be discussed, but it (like one belt - one way) is not, and most likely will not be. Putin is not a theoretician, he is generally weak in terms of the role of the father of nations and the thinker of our time, as happened in the past with the leadership of the USSR, albeit with hired ghost writers. The person is of the wrong kind. And bringing theoreticians closer does not. There is no need, as it were. For many years now, international affairs officials from all countries have been trying to scrape at least something about his thoughts from the ceiling, but the Kremlin ruler is insidious and does not want to help them in any way. Was there a boy ?! We are all in captivity of stereotypes, since a statesman, so he is entitled to this and that. Well, at least a couple of lines on Twitter !!! Not so, even ignores the debate.

    It is ridiculous to hear such statements from a representative of a state that over the past 60 years has lost most of its overseas territories, at least some influence even within Europe and has turned into one big camp for migrants with an off-scale crime rate. Let there be no France tomorrow - no one will remember.

    Now the United States and Europe can only try to guess in which direction Russia will move so as not to be mistaken in their own strategy.

    So far, the "hand of Moscow" is visible everywhere, but most often as a hindrance to someone's plans.

    Throughout its history, Russia interfered with plans, moreover, it was and remains a bone in the throat and it is known from whom. These global planners around the world have decided that they have the right to rule the whole world, including Russia, at their discretion! Today, whether they like it or not, like it or not, they have to and will have to continue to reckon with Russia's interests in their plans!

    This is when Putin said that he would stay until 36? All three described options have nothing to do with Russia. The Frenchman farted once again and ruined the air.

    The Frenchman regrets that they did not trample us. And now he's delusional in his own way. And this has nothing to do with Russia. Well, what to take from him, they would have accepted him on Echo of Moscow. It's full of scavengers.

    The usual barking of the French lapdog does not interfere with the movement of the Russian bear.
