Russian author for the US press: "Russia needs a new Gorbachev"

The American edition of The Nation publishes material in which the author discusses the protests in the Russian Far East. At the same time, Nadezhda Azhgikhina acts as the author, who called her article “Russia needs a new Gorbachev”. Nadezhda Azhgikhina previously worked for the Ogonyok magazine, as well as for the Komsomolskaya Pravda, Nezavisimaya Gazeta, and others.


According to the author, who prepared material for the American press, protests continue in Khabarovsk, which are unprecedented for Russia over the past twenty years. Apparently, in recent years, Mrs. Azhgikhina has something with memory, because the protests in Khabarovsk for Russia of the last 20 years are definitely not "unprecedented". There were also much larger protest rallies and processions. One example is the famous events on Bolotnaya Square in Moscow.

Further, in the material for the Western reader, the author reports on the reasons for the Khabarovsk protests, who Sergey Furgal is, why he was under investigation and who was replaced as the head of the region.

After that, Nadezhda Azhgikhina, who is currently the executive director of the PEN-Moscow organization, switches in her material to topics related to Vladimir Putin. In particular, with reference to the data of the Levada Center, it is stated that the popularity rating of Vladimir Putin "dropped to the lowest level - 23%." The author of the material in The Nation claims that the protests in Khabarovsk "caught the Kremlin by surprise" and, summing up, writes:

Propaganda cannot resist the influence of the Internet.

At the same time, in her article, Ms. Azhgikhina does not explain why Russia “needs a new Gorbachev”. If it is about glasnost, then there is more than enough of this glasnost and freedom of speech in Russia and about Russia - an example is the article by Azhgikhina herself for the American media. Or is it a transparent hint that Russia needs a "leader" under whose leadership the state will again find itself on the brink of extinction? Then let the "new Gorbachev" be better recommended for the USA itself ...

        Russia needs statesmen at the helm, people who put state interests above personal ones. And naturally socially oriented statists, not in words, but in deeds. We need an ideology that will unite society .. This will be enough to move forward.

            We are not greedy, we have enough of one for our eyes.
            We will concede the second Gorbachev (with the new Yeltsin in the collection) to the United States - let them enjoy the belly and do not deny themselves anything.

          First, it is necessary to clearly define what "state interests" are. Moving in a direction without knowing where is a dangerous path. Let's remember the history of 1981991.

          Yes, Svarog, we need someone else. No, I am not calling for the ouster of Putin, I am not averse to him changing, becoming something like Peter the Great or Stalin.
          But how can a person who owes everyone around him change? And he owes friends, and enemies, and overseas partners, and neighbors, and the people get confused under their feet, demand something there, and ... As such an anxious person, bound hand and foot by countless obligations to an endless series of different groups of the population, can do something that would satisfy everyone at once?
          For example, in order for friends to continue to perceive their positions as a sinecure for gigantic salaries from the budget, the oligarchs could take that budget away with impunity as help in pumping out subsoil, science and their own industry on its basis would suddenly bloom by themselves, people would get high-paying jobs in In the amount of at least one for each worker, small and medium-sized businesses would swell and grow like leaps and bounds, and demonstrations with chants would go through the streets one after another, “Long live Putin, our dear father! And whoever disagrees, it sucks! "
          I would like to...
          But Peter had only one priority - a mighty Russia, and Stalin had a mighty USSR.
          When there are too many commitments, nothing comes of it. Or, more precisely, developmental lag.

        Neither Tagged nor the new EBN of Russia resisted for nothing. They were not reformers, but were provocateurs, traitors to their country and people and puppets of Western forces. Point.
        That is, this journalist advises again to destroy the country in essence and bring it to its knees. It seems to me alone that this lady, as a girl with reduced social responsibility for fifty dollars, sold out?
        Quote: V1er
        Russia needs a new Stalin, Peter I, needs reformers

        Russia does not need a reformer. The reformers have been bullied, "we will build our new world, and so on ... maybe we just need an adequate sincerely loving Russia and not a leavened patriot at the helm? And then with these reformers, the people either starve or are spiritually and educationally impoverished ...
        Reforms, revolutions, perestroika ... so with the reformers and we will sit and wait for a bright future to the grave and hell it will be. Just instead of breaking it, can it try to preserve, build something new and increase what is? Not? We messed up in the 90s ... did it help us much later?

        Russia needs a new Stalin, Peter I,

        I partially agree. That's just, there would be such a strong leader who used all his charisma not to expand his power and satisfy personal pride (as it was with Stalin and Peter), but to create a strong, comfortable and stable country in which I would like to live to any foreigner and who would not start to crumble immediately after this strong leader leaves.

        God forbid. One more Russia cannot bear.
        And among the people Gorbach enjoys such great "popularity".
        Russia needs a strong government, which will have to toughly, but fairly, govern all sectors of society, while developing industry, creating jobs, and much more. It cannot be explained in three words.

        Each historical figure - Peter I, Stalin, not only ruled the situation "for themselves", but also sagged under the situation themselves.
        Peter 1 built ships by hand, being an apprentice in Dutch shipyards.
        He personally studied nautical science.
        And he formed a personal opinion on many issues and began to drive the rest of Russia with a whip and an ax in the direction that seemed right to him.
        The point of view of the "rabble" - ie. common people, he was absolutely not interested.
        Yes, he would never have thought of asking the opinion of a simple plowman.
        Stalin is a party functionary who, as a result of a certain set of circumstances, became the head of the party and the leader.
        First, we are the leader of a certain group of persons - the same party functionaries.
        And only then, after removing from the path of various groups and persons hindering him, he began to implement exactly the policy that was optimal for this historical moment.
        I think that Dzhugashvili, who robbed banks, and Dzhugashvili, who determines the fate of the world in Potsdam, are completely different personalities, although one and the same person.

        This passage above is necessary for understanding what I will say next.
        Finding in the history of Russia a person who would correspond to the current moment in time is not difficult.
        But, first of all, we will not get full compliance.
        Second.
        As a person, she not only professes service to the country and people.
        Often a personality makes the country and people start changing their traditions, customs, habits and much more.
        And I don’t think you or I would like that.

        The main problem of Russia is that having destroyed some of the bonds - the construction of a classless society that excludes the exploitation of one person by another, we did not give new spiritual bonds accepted by the majority of the people.
        Not shackles, but spiritual bonds, I emphasize.
        Those. in order to unite, albeit essentially different people, into a single community - the people.
        And here we can say that the lack of state ideology is the main evil that harms us today like nothing else.
        But neither United Russia, nor Putin, nor Zyuganov, nor the pygmies - Zhirinovsky and Mironov, will be able to form a coherent national idea.
        Some of their statements should not be taken seriously.
        And such uncertainty leads to very serious excesses.

        The example of Ukraine, and now Belarus, is a very formidable warning.
        But I think that those in power, these lessons will not be understood.

        The presence of a national idea is a guiding star.
        But the achievement of this goal, determined by the national idea, can happen in different ways.
        The result is important, not the method.
        This means that the power in the country can and must change. New faces, new heads, new thoughts must come.
        But the goal remains the same.
        It is determined by ideology.

    Journalists are slowly becoming the 5th column of the State Department. Here in Minsk, Semen Pegov was screwed up and all the brothers howled, screamed - they were beating ours. Magazine Ogonyok under the notorious Russophobe Korotich, who, together with the editor of Moscow News Yakovlev, worked for the State Department, humiliating the honor and dignity of many generations of Soviet people, praising Gorbachev and his policy of destruction ... This lady did not go far from them. And for such an article you have to ask - what kind of Gorbachev do you need, who is Kortavi or who has Israeli citizenship or, at worst, Spanish citizenship. This is the purpose of these pseudo scribblers fed by foreign influence funds.

    “The protests in Khabarovsk took the Kremlin by surprise.” Yes, just for the first time in the Kremlin they acted wisely - if they walk the streets peacefully, do not make riots, then let them walk until they get bored, as in any state that considers itself a civilized one ...

    Ms. Azhgikhina never explains why Russia “needs a new Gorbachev”. If it is about glasnost, then there is more than enough of this glasnost and freedom of speech in Russia and about Russia today.

    Freedom of speech - as the main part of a rich and prosperous state, as I understand it, Mrs. Azhgikhina? But the paradox is that some of the states where there is no freedom of speech in principle, the population lives richer than in Russia (Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, etc.)

      God bless her with freedom of speech, we have a low economic culture of the population and a wide state-controlled sector, including the media - in this situation, you can at least get around freely, it will take forever to cover and comprehend any of the most insignificant problems in the inspired ocean of lies and disinfections.
      What we really need is the transparency of government spending at all levels, at the end of each presidential term, public hearings "opposition against the president" before the new term, and finally - a culture of responsibility of the highest officials of the state, which implies that every high-ranking official should not go away from acute issues concerning his property or activities - and this should be done in the State Duma and also publicly. What we usually call "freedom of speech" is simply a pluralism of opinions for the most part. And we need exactly the Right.

        I read the first sensible comment (as I understand it from Belarus)
        In fact, you will not be able to break anything with such methods, you need to elect your representatives to power, only in this way, having a legislative initiative, you can change the rules.
        In the meantime, I see an attempt at another "revolution", do you yourself understand that?

          God bless her with Belarus, I am not worried about the problems of the now sovereign fragments. That's what sovereignty is for them to decide for themselves. I am from Russia and I am worried about Russian problems - why do we live in 2020 (like "strategy 2020", etc.), where are the results of the verbiage that has been pouring from every crack of the year since 2008 - and who will be responsible for it. Usually, in any activity, success is determined by a very specific set of parameters - they also show the scale of success - small, medium, large, grandiose. Discussing problems in society is certainly great and cool, but now we are at the point where the state denies the existence of problems and indulges society with it - and society eats and does not delve into it. There is nothing to discuss if there is no adequate statistics, one solid linden and lured institutions for compiling this linden, which spend taxes. For "linden" should be tried and imprisoned, the opposition should criticize, success should be determined by the volume of milk and meat and not by the roar of fanfare - this is what we can come to without revolutions.

        So they are transparent today. Duma members receive 400K rubas, they do not drip over them, and they are ready to vote for this amount for any law that the current government offers them. So please think about what is more important to us than transparency, colleague! hi

          How much tax money has been spent on a senseless heap of constitutional amendments? What amounts of funds have been allocated for the Russian Lunar Program, who made the plans, why the deadlines "went so far" and were such "gliders" punished? What amount of funds is allocated for benefits of all types for deputies of the state? duma, members of the Federation Council in excess of their official salaries? What funds are allocated to the official parliamentary parties for political activities - who determines the allocation of these funds and by what criteria and from what funds? And there are many more similar questions on the sidelines - they will not find an articulate answer. There are a lot of noodles, but the numbers generally don't agree. When the numbers do not agree - in a normal society this is a reason to start a good, big business with a showcase auto-da-fe - and in our country it is in the order of things. It shouldn't be ..

            You're looking too far, colleague! First, see who pays our parliamentarians and you will immediately have fewer questions! You can see the amount of funds for the Duma here http://duma.gov.ru/finances/costs/ almost all the questions you are interested in are in the public domain, but why these costs are so huge and uncontrolled by anyone, it is much more interesting and important!

              That is why I point out that public institutions should have the right to form such questions. The existing political system has a sufficient number of people for this, sufficient funds and a fully saturated structure - however, it does not provide for such a function. Why is understandable. Good questions are followed by "who is to blame?" followed by the famous "What to do?" ... However, questions tend to accumulate until the moment when you no longer want to ask any questions, and then disintegration or revolutions begin. We went through this, now (for the umpteenth time, ah, history does not teach anything ..) at the top there is a temptation to hold the situation in hybrid ways - through information control, dissipation of protest sentiments, generation of shock content and distraction, high-targeted and branched power apparatus with good funding - but this is an illusion akin to building the Tower of Babel to the sky. Not being able to take a constructive or destructive form, the protest will simply take on new forms, sooner or later leading to a natural result - revolution or disintegration. This can go along the path of the withdrawal of capital and minds, the ramification of kleptocratic and clan tendencies, the expansion of local tools for the production of a statistical "lime tree" - there are a lot of options. The bottom line - we have already passed to 1991. This is not a question of satisfying the liberal itch in the loins - it is a question of the viability of our state now, it seems to me.

                You are right, this is certainly true, but GRU Colonel V.V. Kvachkov, in his book "The Russian Revolution is Inevitable", which he wrote in prison. Briefly, you can find it here https://knigago.com/books/nonf-all/nonf-publicism/255243-vladimir-vasilevich-kvachkov-russkaya-revolyutsiya-neizbezhna/ Unfortunately, he is right on almost every point. Unfortunately, because we would like a peaceful, evolutionary transition of Russia to prosperity, but the existing government has destroyed peaceful ways to implement this - there are no independent courts and no independent electoral system.

He promised, but failed .. EBN, as that also promised more, but fell on a glass and dashingly left the answer , and the next one, in general, put his Munich speech on all the contracts .. it turned out ugly .. I need a new Juda .. like Chubais .. he is ready to sell everything - if only the gesheft was normal ..
