Military Review

The coup everyone knew about

71

The beginning of February 2021 for the citizens of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar was marked by another change of government in the country. Around the morning of February 1, the military arrested President Vin Myin, State Councilor Aung San Suu Kyi and other leaders of the ruling National League for Democracy Party.


The reason for the arrest, judging by the statement of the military, was interference in the political situation - falsification of the voter lists during the parliamentary elections held in the country last November. The election commission, according to the military, was unable to resolve the controversial issues, unrest began in the country, so they decided to take power into their own hands.

Naturally, as is most often the case in such cases, a state of emergency was declared in the country. The military took control of all important infrastructure facilities. Reinforced military patrols appeared in the streets. In the same statement, the military announced that the state of emergency would continue for one year to prepare for fair elections in the country.

Vice-President Myint Shwe became the acting president of the country. In fact, the country was led by the commander-in-chief of the armed forces of the Republic of Myanmar, Min Aung Hline. The nearly 60 million-strong country entered the state of emergency calmly, without any serious public protests.

"Rake", on which many have already stepped


Did you notice the oddity in indicating the population of the country? "Almost 60 million country"? In some sources you can read about the 53 million country. Simply put, no one knows the exact number of the population. The census was carried out quite a long time ago, and population growth is calculated by approximate figures.

Why it happens? It is worth remembering about stories and geography. The old name of the country is Burma. Myanmar's neighbors are China, India, Bangladesh, Laos, Thailand. All countries are multinational, with many religions and lifestyles. Naturally, Myanmar has not escaped exactly the same problems. Remember the last news from this country. They were somehow connected with religious or ethnic contradictions.

For example, the commander-in-chief of the armed forces of the Republic of Myanmar, Min Aung Hlain, who actually became the head of state, is better known not as an outstanding military leader, but as the organizer of the massacre of Rohingya Muslims in Rakhine state. It was this massacre that caused Muslims to flee to Thailand in 2012-2013.

Any coup must have a reason. It can be invented, it can be real, but it is impossible to carry out a coup without reason and without motivation of the performers. The coup in Myanmar is no exception.

The reason for the coup was the falsification of the voting results in the parliamentary elections in November 2020. Immediately after the resounding victory of the National League for Democracy (NLD) party, led by Aung San Suu Kyi, the military announced the planting of 8,6 million ballots! It was this circumstance that led to the fact that the NLD took 396 out of 476 seats in parliament. The military received only 30 seats.

Doesn't this technology remind you of what happened recently in the elections in another overseas country? The elections have passed and the government-controlled election commission recognizes them. Violations are considered insignificant.

It is impossible to speak unequivocally about the rigging that took place in November. Ultimately, this is the business of the Burmese themselves. However, it is not worth rejecting the arguments of the military immediately. This "rake" has worked in more than one country in the world.

A neat and predictable coup


Quite often I hear the opinion that the military carried out a coup in Myanmar suddenly, and therefore the government could not do anything to protect the legitimate leaders of the country. An interesting opinion, especially considering that the military did not hide the fact that there would be a coup. Even the number to which he was appointed was known from publications in the press.

And it is also worth remembering the recent relationship between the leadership of the Russian Armed Forces and Myanmar. The military was very interested in our weapons and really wanted to buy it. And in the Western media there have already been a lot of critical materials on the relationship between the military and the civilian government of Myanmar. And the reaction of Western governments to the coup was instantaneous.

So why February 1st? The answer is simple. It was on this date that the first meeting of the new parliament was scheduled. And that would mean the emergence of a new legal government. The new parliament at its first session approves the composition of the government! If this does not happen, the government is not considered legal. That's all the arithmetic.

Why it was not possible to interfere with the military is also understandable. Vladimir Lenin wrote excellently about what needs to be done and in what sequence when seizing power. Burmese are good students. The same telephone, telegraph, train stations and so on. In most of the country, the Internet, telephone communications and TV channels were turned off. Only the military-owned Myawaddy television network operated without interruption.

Banks were blocked in the same way. It is clear that in the event of an emergency, the population will begin to feverishly withdraw money from accounts, which will cause chaos in the financial markets. Therefore, the military immediately banned any financial transactions and turned off the ATMs.

At the same time, the owners of shops, cafes and other enterprises that ensure the normal life of the people are obliged to work as usual. As a result of these actions, life in the country practically did not change. The coup turned out to be soft, in the style of South Americans of the late 20th century.

How state leaders reacted to the coup


It is clear that we are primarily interested in Russia's reaction to the coup. The reaction of our Foreign Ministry was quick enough. In the evening of February 1, the official position was voiced by the representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Maria Zakharova:

We hope for a peaceful settlement of the situation in accordance with the current legislation through the resumption of political dialogue and the maintenance of sustainable socio-economic development of the country. In this regard, we drew attention to the statement of the military authorities about their intention to hold new parliamentary elections in a year.

There are about 70 Russians in the country today. All of them are warned about safety measures in case of emergency. They are under constant control of the embassy.

The reaction of Myanmar's neighbors is interesting. Complete calmness and no serious statements condemning or approving the actions of the military. Economic and other ties remain. In short, nothing has changed for the relationship between these countries and Myanmar.

The UN Secretary General on duty condemned the coup and

called on the military leadership to respect the will of the people of Myanmar and adhere to democratic norms, as well as resolve any differences through peaceful dialogue.

The United States took the most active position in condemning the coup. Jennifer Psaki has already noted the next

The US is alarmed by reports that the Burmese military has taken steps to undermine the country's transition to democracy.

By the way, the United States continues to use the old name of the country in its documents - Burma (Myanmar abandoned this name in 1989). It is clear that traditional “terrible punishments” in the form of sanctions have also been voiced.

Life goes on


We are used to the fact that coups are always evil. Perhaps this is our inner confidence in the fairness of the people's choice. However, in the case of Myanmar, I have no such confidence. On the one hand, a crime. On the other hand, this crime was caused by another crime. It is easy to judge from the outside.

I do not think that today Russia should take any drastic steps in relation to Myanmar. A change of power has taken place. But life goes on. The people accepted the new government. Therefore, we just need to carefully understand the situation and only then decide.

    We do not need to go there with our charter, the Russians do not live there and there is no particular reason to interfere. And the United States, if it wants to have another sworn enemy, let them introduce their own sanctions. Myanmar and without the United States will live before and on.

          I think in order to understand what the US is up to, it is enough to read the latest statements of the Americans. It was openly announced yesterday that the United States will make every effort to get Beijing and New Delhi to join in condemning the coup. In fact, this means that the United States does not want to give up Myanmar's mineral resources.
          What will come of it? I think zilch. Beijing will definitely defend its own interests. And New Delhi is also not particularly amenable to pressure.

              - with such a level of reasoning, it makes no difference at all which coups to condemn and which to justify.

              - a universal wording to justify any coup, in general, anything. You can take a quick glance at any coup that the author condemns, and make sure that he completely fits into it.

        it is always necessary to consider the phenomenon in balance, and not from one side.
        The United States, whatever one may say, organizes trade on a global scale, the dollar is also their tool for oppressing peoples and a tool for reviving trade.
        Of course, the United States does a lot of harm to the world. But not only harm, otherwise everyone would have refused the dollar and their other offers long ago. In addition, it should be understood that the United States does not act on its own, it only concentrates many properties of the world order - capitalism.
        There will be no US, England or something else will appear. Just treat it like a cancer and in the US it is just the most visible matastases.

      There is one more small point - General Min Aung Hlain, in whose hands all the full power has passed, openly sympathizes with Moscow. This fact is taken into account on Capitol Hill and very infuriates the entire State Department leadership! They are especially concerned about our supply of weapons and the training of military specialists in our military academies ...

      Absolutely.
      Burma has an amazingly interesting history. The Americans, compared to the Burmese, are simply historical midgets. The British Empire did not exist yet, and the Burmese armies conducted campaigns of conquest, in which there were up to 150 thousand soldiers. The military has been the mainstay of foreign and domestic policy for thousands of years. Therefore, it is naive to assume that the last decades will change something ...
      Myanmar is now (despite the strong influence of the PRC in the north of the country) is more independent than all other states in the region. Russia should take advantage of this and increase political and economic ties with this very unique country that has not yet revealed its potential ...

    It was this circumstance that led to the fact that the NLD took 396 seats out of 476 in parliament. The military received only 30 seats. Doesn't this technology remind you of what happened recently in the elections in another overseas country?
    Doesn't remind. From the word at all. There, parties in parliament are approximately equally represented. But the numbers "396 seats out of 476 in parliament" remind me of our country very much. And, by the way, I will not be very surprised if the edros even after the autumn elections suddenly "gain" a majority in the Duma. Perhaps even constitutional. So what? Get used to it, or what? Just think - the people of EdRo can not stand. But from above there is such a support!
    Py.Sy. Why should we react to a coup in some kind of Myanmar, to which you can't get there in a year on a bad goat? If even her closest neighbors look at what is happening with a wise equanimity? Well, maybe Ramzan will get a little hot - he, I remember, was very offended by the Rohingya massacre.

          It is high time to just cancel all elections. All the same, they do not solve anything and only distract funds and muddy the people. There must be a king or president who appoints the government and is responsible for everything with his head. The people should not have the right to choose, which is essentially a fiction, but the right to condemn and control. This he can: evaluate the work of the government. In ancient times, this system worked perfectly.

        The absence of alternative politicians and parties reduces the popular interest in the elections to zero. The USSR was much more honest: the choice of the only candidate. As long as the people have something to eat, the authorities do not need to worry, and if the enemies press us with sanctions, the people can take up the pitchfork, as in 1917. There are so many elite houses in Moscow: I can imagine how "revolutionary sailors" will gut their residents.

      Speak for yourself. If "United Russia" did not enjoy the support of the peoples of the Russian Federation, then the power is still in power, as in the 90s were the communists, who never fulfilled their promises during their time in power ....

      It turned out that I first learned about this coup in the story of Minaev. He was sent a video of a fitness trainer from Myanmar against the background of technology, then I began to watch it online. And the girl, dancing against the background of technology, did not know. ... Or maybe such a clever informational step was request winked

      The Burmese already had it all. And Maidan, and saucepans and cookies. And the military dictatorship, and non-violent resistance, and the revolution. Burmese harness slowly, and do not drive fast. They write that no matter what, Aung San Suu Kyi continues to enjoy authority among the Buddhist population, and it is no coincidence that the military announced that new elections will be held in a year.

        Well, I just put it ... Prepared. gathered. We calmly discussed who would be in charge. The population was notified not to worry. Overthrown. But as decent people, they did not pour any dirt on the ousted leader of the country. They probably even thanked for the work. Clever girls! As G. Vitsin in Gaidai's film said: "everything is decorous and noble" I am simply in awe of the revolutionary culture of this people. Well done! I respect intelligent people!)

    On the eve of the military coup, January 21-22, Sergei Shoigu visited Myanmar. According to the press service of the Russian Ministry of Defense, during the visit, Shoigu thanked the general for participating in the parade in Moscow in 2020 and said that the two countries fought together against fascism.


    Following Shoigu's visit, Myanmar decided to buy Pantsir-S-1 anti-aircraft missile-cannon systems and Orlan-10E drones from Russia.


    A technical service center for aircraft and armored vehicles supplied by Russia operates in Myanmar. Moscow supplied Myanmar with 30 MiG-29 aircraft, 12 combat training Yak-130s, six Su-30SMs, 10 Mi-24 and Mi-35P helicopters, 8 Pechora-2M anti-aircraft missile systems, as well as radar stations, armored vehicles and artillery systems.

    Six thousand soldiers were educated in Russia.

    There are more Chinese economic interests in Myanmar, the border is common, the Chinese want to ensure the economic outlet of their province of Yunnan through the territory of Myanmar to the ports of this country at sea, Russia mainly cooperates with Myanmar in the field of military-technical cooperation, the lobbyists here are the Myanmar military, so our interests are not suffer

    Since the coup is "soft", then, most likely, it is associated with the arrival of China. For China, Myanmar is not only a source of raw materials, but also a way to enter the Indian Ocean, bypassing the Strait of Malacca controlled by the United States. If so, the construction of roads and ports will soon begin. In addition, the problem for India and for the entire states of Indochina.

    1) Isn't Kadyrov involved here, who officially declared Jihad to Burma? ))))
    And about which then neither a rumor nor a spirit, as well as about the popular Echen buggies.

    2) Some sort of double standards. They have stuffing and a coup - well, it happens.
    For others, all the agents of the State Department have invented it. 80% of the dad and 60% of the edra - they deserve their tireless work ...

    3) The main conclusion. The time is coming for stuffing in elections.
    If before the aunts were caught under the cameras, throwing a stack of leftist limsts with impunity, now, with the Internet voting for the president and the party, nothing can be proved.
    On public services, etc. they will clean up the last traces (there are different endings, steps in time), and that's it.
    The majority is secured, it is anonymous by law, and will not be undermined.

      They have been accused for years, and Aung San Suu Kyi is the same. I do not exclude that the military went to the coup also because they feared a change in the government's course towards Muslims. And there, and before responsibility for the genocide of civilians is not long.
