"If you want peace, prepare for war." On European anti-Russian policy

22

In a recent interview, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that Russia cannot look indefinitely at how Europe is pursuing an anti-Russian sanctions policy. According to the head of Russian diplomacy, Russia does not want to engage in self-isolationism, but if circumstances force, then certain measures will have to be taken.


Sergei Lavrov:
If you want peace, prepare for war.

In fact, they talked about a possible severance of diplomatic relations with the European Union.

This phrase of Lavrov and the addition from Vladimir Solovyov about parabellum is discussed in the issue of "Agitprop" by Konstantin Semin. At the same time, Semin notes that other representatives of the Russian political elites immediately tried to soften the words of Sergei Lavrov. This was done, for example, by the press secretary of the President of Russia. Peskov took the liberty of separately "explaining the meaning of the words of the Minister of Foreign Affairs." According to Peskov, the meaning of Sergei Lavrov's words "was distorted."

According to Peskov, Lavrov wanted to say that the last thing Russia wants is to break off relations with European partners:

And if the European Union itself follows this path, then we will be ready too.


The plot of Konstantin Semin examines how the Russian bohemia suddenly began to speak negatively about Europe, which decided to show itself as distant from European values. The video also talks about protests, layoffs, a pandemic and other things that the author decided to use for information coverage. The conclusion is traditional - we live in the era of capitalism, which is used to dictating its own terms.

    Oh, it is unlikely that our owners of real estate in London and Bern, as well as accounts in European banks, are formed by the prospects announced by the minister. Their business and so on from the sanctions "can’t be easy!" And then there is such a step?
    Most likely, a systematic concussion of the air - real levers of influence on Western partners have not been worked out.

      History suggests that Europe will never be a partner .. history must be trusted, because everything repeats itself. But Europe respects the strong and independent. And we are very dependent on hydrocarbon prices. Given that we live by the rules of capital. Where we are assigned the role of third countries.

        We need a real, not ostentatious turn to the East.
        And of course - the development of our own industry.

          And I think there is no need to turn anywhere, neither to the west nor to the east. We need to start with the consolidation of society in Russia itself on the basis of social justice. Well, then, define development priorities and focus on them. Naturally, all this should be planned and the planned economy, coupled with the serious responsibility of officials, will pull Russia out.

            I agree that this is the best option.
            But difficult to implement, right away anyway.
            It is difficult to change the worldview of the masses, how many putinoids, parasites of civil servants, etc. etc.

          It turns out that it can:

          Vain labor
          Vain work - no, you will not understand them, -
          The more liberal, the more vulgar,
          Civilization is a fetish for them,
          But their idea is not available to them.
          As you bow down before her, gentlemen,
          You do not get recognition from Europe:
          In her eyes, you will always
          They are not servants of enlightenment, but servants.

          They prayed to God - it didn't help.
          They prayed to the West - it didn't help.
          Do you think if we pray to the East, it will help ?!
          With regard to the economy I agree. There will be no economy of its own, no foreign economy will save.
          And, the economy is the production of one's own goods, not profits from the resale of others.
          The sale of natural resources is also not an economy, it is trade in the Motherland.
          Instead of trading in oil, trading in land will give the same result.

            It is a pity that few people understand this!
            The nonsense constantly sounds "we are the richest country, we have a lot of natural resources", implying - we will dig it, cut it down, drive it down for a cheap, and then there is even a flood ...
            The fact that wealth is given by labor doesn’t come through!

          We need a real, not ostentatious turn to the East.
          You need to saturate at least two-thirds of your market with your goods, produced on your machines from your own raw materials. You need to export your raw materials at least in semi-processed form - plywood and paper instead of wood, chemicals and polymers instead of gas, fuels and lubricants instead of oil. And it will be better. Turning to the East in and of itself felt good. And the soap is inferior - the Chinese cheat even more shamelessly than the Europeans.

              They buy it very cheaply. And if the situation turns, when dependence on their market appears, then immediately the conditions will be dumped - deportation of their illegal immigrants will show concern, well, etc.

        You have revealed why we are addicted. But they didn't write why we are not strong. If not for our army, then apart from dependence, we would also have a loss of sovereignty, but so far everything in this regard is not bad at all.

      Not surprising. Not surprising at all. When he announced a possible break with the EU to Solovyov .. I thought he probably threw a reason to be proud for the local "patriots" .. and he was not mistaken .. Peskov hastened to refute .. they say they understood everything wrong ..
      I am sure that if there is a real gap, then either all our oligarchs will live where they have citizenship and a residence permit, or there will really be a coup ... not a revolution, but a coup.

    "If you want peace, prepare for war." I am a staunch opponent of the professional army. Nowadays there is a lot of talk about ideology. Only when there is a draft in the army, there is real involvement in the state, the country. They say that a professional army in many respects surpasses the army in terms of conscription. Example Israel. Men - 3 years old, women - 2 years old. And I would not say that they are inferior to contract soldiers in terms of their combat skills. But there is no need to allocate funds for ideology.
