How Washington "Assessed" Russia

How Washington "Assessed" Russia

The threat is not there



Donald Trump asked for $ 700 million to counter the influence of Russia, but received only 290. When the country suffered losses (greater than in world wars), it has no time for external enemies.

However, from stories It is well known that it is common for Americans, even traditional, to fund democracy, especially if it is in its infancy. They even did not hesitate to invest in Britain (from the first years of independence from it).

Soon, the Great French Revolution was helped as best they could. And then the first two Russian revolutions. Through Trotsky, they even venerated the October coup.

Despite all the objections of the isolationists, they got involved in two world wars for democracy. Even here - only business, nothing personal.

Already in the third millennium, the United States did not miss a single color revolution. But at the same time, millions of dollars were spent with enviable regularity just to counter the influence of specific countries.

Russia in the list of such - has always been and remains in one of the first places. Only in recent years has it been seriously supplanted by China. However, the Russians are just tired of proving to the world that they are not any threat to it. They should sort out their problems and support their friends.

Apparently, it is no coincidence that for items such as those addressed to democracy in Russia, the amounts have always been lower. Not least because they must be officially recorded in the budget, and even accountable.

Nevertheless, the funds allocated for the democratization of Russia were about to reach almost a billion. The pandemic prevented. Although President Trump initially demanded an amount of 700 million - already quite close to a billion.

To underestimate - do not overestimate


Scanty 290 million - this is all that the all-powerful State Department will give, already without Trump, for

"Countering Russian influence and its attempts to sow distrust of democratic institutions around the world."

The state budget also contains a ban on financing activities that may contribute to the "strategic goals of the Russian Federation" and threaten the interests of US national security, and the "support for programs for the development of democracies in the Russian Federation" so beloved by our liberals.

And at the same time, the taboo on financing any activity to recognize Russia's sovereignty over Crimea was extended.

Agree, 290 million, even dollars, is modest.

"It will not be enough"

as the hero of the plasticine cartoon said.

However, this amount will not be limited.

It seems that Washington is ready to spend much more generously on not some abstract "democracy", but on quite specific sanctions. Needless to say, during the years of reforms, the Americans invested heavily "in us" not with the goal of "against", but definitely "for".

Plus to minus changed as soon as the "gathering of lands" began, which spun off from the former Soviet republics. Ossetia and Abkhazia, Crimea and Donbass. You can add Transnistria to the list.

Isn't that why with more specific "minuses" overseas everything is much simpler: billions (targeted, mind you) were immediately contributed to the defense budget. And the new 2021 fiscal year, which, in fact, will begin only in October, is no exception in this regard.

State the amount in words


But with the amounts in words in this colossal document, everything is not easy. The defense budget (an eternal feeding trough for corporations loyal to Washington, whether American or transnational, it doesn't matter) has always been made up with gaps.

Nobody wanted to tie their hands. Not recipients of budget billions. Not those who distribute them - congressmen, senators, and after them - arbiters of destinies from the Washington Regional Committee.

Isn't that why the almost uncontrolled sums under the "against" items are written down in the defense budget? And it is there (as a carbon copy with sanctions), as a rule, it is about specific people, companies, banks and organizations.

And in the first place today - not the FSB or some "Rostec" and the S-400 sent to Turkey, but "Gazprom" and "Nord Stream-2". In the latest US budgetary schedule - the NDAA-2021 project, new sanctions only supplement the existing ones.

As a reminder, until now, it was only about deep-water pipe laying and related services, up to insurance and certification.

The new package of restrictions will cover everyone who promotes the “sale, lease or provision of pipe-lay vessels for the construction” of gas pipelines, or provides funds or services for the modernization and installation of equipment on pipe-layers.

However (sorry for repeating) no amount in words that may be required to implement such sanctions is not spelled out in the defense budget. Hands are really untied.

There will still be Mr Trump

The outgoing president received with the defense budget, most likely, the last batch of negativity from the political establishment, including from his fellow Republican party. He harshly criticized him for the lack of important points, which plays into the hands of competitors - China and Russia, by vetoing the project.

However, that did not stop lawmakers surprisingly easily, at the expense of a qualified majority in both houses of Congress, from turning the bill into law. Donald Trump was not only pointed out to his current place, but also made it clear that they would not allow him to leave, not only as a winner, but at least with dignity.

As expected, the American sanctions were criticized not only in Russia (where they were described as a manifestation of unfair competition), but also in Europe. They note that the EU is not going to become dependent on anyone for gas. Be it Russian Gazprom or American LNG producers.

However, neither Russia nor the EU began to focus on how much the United States is ready to spend on ensuring any effective sanctions pressure.

Meanwhile, expenses in this case are almost the main thing.

After all, you need to understand whether they will be justified at the expense of future profits?

                  If PREDATOR W is the name of a gaming computer, and SHAMIL is a nickname, then the mistake is in the choice of "rattles": he knew that Shamil was the head of the mountaineers fighting against Russia, but did not know that Shamil surrendered to the governor of the Caucasus, Prince Baryatinsky.
                  Once Imam Shamil was drinking tea with Bishop Gregory of Kaluga, and the following dialogue took place between them: - Why do we and you have one God, and yet He is good for Christians, and so strict for Mohammedans? The bishop asked.
                  - This is because Isa is your kind. And our Prophet is angry, and our people are violent, and therefore they should be treated severely, - the imam answered.

            Why are you doing this? You grew up in St. Petersburg. They fed themselves, drank at someone else's expense. After all, they didn't work to say what kind of education and medicine they shouldn't? I understand that the service provided is no longer a service. This is the idea of ​​"strong and courageous" people. Natural and gratitude for the hospitality, so appreciated in the Caucasus. Nobody has done anything bad to you personally. And you personally did not have time to do the same (I hope). Of course, it's nice to have a strong enemy, it increases your own importance. So imagine how they listen to you here ... And the Caucasus? Well, what about the Caucasus. The place is complex and people are different. Do you agree? As in St. Petersburg ... As in Europe. Like everywhere else. Someone is happy and does not think differently. Someone hates. The same is with us. What is there to do? But I hope you don’t dream that your, hmm ... small homeland will turn into a place where those who come to visit will be killed laughing?
            However, in one thing you are right. It’s probably good that you left Russia. To live in peace with each other, forgiving and protecting each other is the lot of the strong. It must have been hard for you. I understand you ... It's easier there.

    Yes, you fought for money, because greed is a characteristic feature of the Caucasian peoples:
    Greed and betrayal became Shamil's main enemies. Now he saw how wrong he was when he did not believe the rumors that reached him that some naibs were abusing their power and became worse than the khans. Oppressing and robbing their people, they turned their anger against Shamil himself. Many were deposed by the imam, sent into exile and even executed. But it was not possible to see behind everyone. Sometimes the bravest warriors lost their minds in the pursuit of wealth. Some even killed innocent people, who allegedly did not give the due part of the trophies to the state treasury, and took possession of their property. Therefore, many societies passed under the rule of the king, just to get rid of their hated naibs. The traitors-naibs, who had managed to make many enemies among the people and hoped to find protection from Baryatinsky, were in a hurry to curry favor with themselves.

    Yes, and Shamil himself sold out for the title of nobility, which the king gave him after the capture:
    On August 26, 1866, in the ceremonial hall of the Kaluga provincial noble assembly, Shamil, together with his sons Gazi-Muhammad and Muhammad-Shapi, took the oath of allegiance to Russia. In the same year, Shamil was a guest at the wedding of Tsarevich Alexander, then the third meeting with the emperor takes place. On August 30, 1869, Shamil was elevated to the hereditary nobility by the highest decree.

        Yes scum, of course rare. A product of modern education and national politics. I have never met such people live. I live in the Kuban, I am in constant contact with our Circassians (Adyghe), a kind of people, of course, but definitely deserves respect, if only for the fact that they always keep their word. They do not have such nationalism, although the Russians killed the Circassians well in the Caucasian war (some clans up to 80%), however, they did not lag behind us.

    but all the same, only Russia is to blame.

    NATO has come close to the western borders of Russia ... of course, Russia is to blame.
    But there was no need to unite the GDR and the FRG and withdraw their troops from Eastern Europe and rely on an oral promise ...
    Secretary of State James Baker, Texan and an old friend of President Bush: on February 9, 1990, in the Kremlin, he said that if the USSR agreed to NATO membership for a united Germany, then "NATO troops would not advance an inch east."

    The United States has enough "leverage" to screw us "oxygen" without money - what kind of chorus they "sang" from the "mongrels" - the owner should "growl" and run faster than the wind to carry out the order of the master - yesterday I read that De Norske Veritas refused certify the SP-2 for fear of US sanctions. And so everywhere. And the allocated $ 290 million can, too, greatly spoil our "pike", if they are applied correctly, "pointwise", and what, but the Americans are able to "distribute" correctly ...

      And what do they demand in return ??? Crimea in Orcainu, America's henchmen to the Russian government (as was the case with the fall of the USSR and the blue Tsar Borisk), and to remove Putin? Otherwise, sanctions!

    When a country has suffered losses (greater than in world wars), it has no time for external enemies.
    when America receives losses due to a war of several tens of millions of people, only then will their warriors and state corporations stop poking their noses into the affairs of other states around the world!

    ... Plus to minus changed as soon as began "collecting land"that spun off from the former Soviet republics. Ossetia and Abkhazia, Crimea and Donbass... You can list and Transnistria replenish.

    Crimea is the only one from the entire list collected. And now Donbass, once the richest Ukrainian region, has already turned out to be beyond its strength.

    If there was a really realistic plan for collecting land, all these lands would have been part of Russia yesterday. Except, perhaps, Abkhazia. There, using the material support of Russia, they categorically do not want to unite with anyone.

    As expected, the American sanctions were criticized not only in Russia (where they were described as a manifestation of unfair competition), but also in Europe.

    The topic of US providing Russia with "another batch of shit" is not new. I would like to be specific in the field of criticism of the manifestation of unfair competition by European countries (which ones, for what reason and how many times) ...
    Forgive me, but the negative from the fact that not only Russia, but also the Russians themselves (with the exception of the Russian rich) are for Europe - what incense for the devil.

    Again, I wonder who from the list, besides Crimea, was accepted into Russia? When were South Ossetia, Abkhazia, Transnistria and Donbass accepted into the state? They want to become part of Russia, but only our authorities do not accept them.

    Soon, the French Revolution was helped as best they could.

    The author looks narrowly at the history of the 18th century !!! The entire 18th century is the century of confrontation between the two superpowers of that time, England and France !!! All major geopolitical events of that era revolve around this great confrontation between the giants. All - and the 7-year war and the formation of the United States and the Great French Revolution and the assassination of the Russian Tsar Paul and the Napoleonic wars.

    The Americans helped the French because the French helped the very process of creating the US state !!! France supplied all the necessary forces of the rebels (weapons, food, military specialists). And if not for the French, then Washington would never have enough resources to fight the British !!!

    By the way, the Americans, by the way, in many colorful programs and books on the topic of education in the United States - either ignore the topic of French aid altogether or only mention it in passing. And yet this is one of the central events of the entire US war of independence !!! Still, to recognize the serious help of the French is to some extent to recognize the fact that the United States as a state was formed at the whim of the French kings !!!

    How many people still adore America. And still. Or rather, not even so much America, but its state system. Moreover, this adoration manifests itself even when America is scolded with the last words. But at the same time, it is impossible to squeeze out a secret admiration for the power projected by the system. People who treat the enemy with a similar reverence, in which there is a genuine respect for the system, strength and power, will not be able to win. Only the infinite can win, i.e. one who will deny the adversary the right to exist, deleting him from his picture of the world. In this regard, Great Britain, like the United States, may not be afraid of the Russians, who are in love with the great imperial systems erected by them. Russia is fascinated by America to the point of self-denial, to, in fact, some kind of lethargy. And in nostalgia for the USSR, for the most part, there is a longing for the lost greatness, which was the result of a real confrontation with beloved America around the globe.

    Hahaha, if the West wanted to bury Russia, it would have done it back in 90. He did not do it because he believed that now our ally and in the future will become a springboard for confronting the impending power of China. But the Russians outplayed everyone (no)
