MI6 chief worried about "recklessness" of Russia "heading for decline"

115

Richard Moore became the first in stories the current head of the British intelligence service MI6, who dared to talk to the press. For the first time in history, London did not hide the name of the head of this secret service.


Moore was interviewed by the British newspaper The Sunday Times.

As it turned out, the head of MI6 (MI6) is worried about the "recklessness" of Russia, "heading for decline."

From an objective point of view, Russia is in decline both economically and demographically. And, obviously, the way they treated Alexei Navalny, as well as the way thousands of people took to the streets of many cities, not only Moscow, show that Russian society is dissatisfied with Mr. Putin.

- he said in an interview with reporters.

Moore said that one of the main problems facing the British intelligence service was Russian President Vladimir Putin and his "reckless regime."

The head of MI6 mentioned the withdrawal of approximately 100 Russian servicemen who had recently arrived at the Ukrainian border, where military exercises were taking place. He said that before that the Kremlin had received a warning from London that if Russia attacked Ukraine, it would "pay a great price for it."

In an interview, Richard Moore also admitted that he is a fan of James Bond films, although they have little to do with reality.

                In vain did Richard Moore give an interview to the press: now everyone in the world knows that the head of MI6 is the dreamy D.W. rocher! All the arrivals of Britain have been dreaming of the decline and collapse of Russia for many hundreds of years. And she still stands "for the joy" of all enemies! laughing

                Until 2030, more than 100 trillion rubles of public and private funds will be invested in the Russian economy in all spheres, infrastructure, industry, science, space, ecology, and so on, plus another 2033 trillion for the military-industrial complex by 22. So stagnation will definitely not be possible to safely count on economic growth of at least 5% per year.

                  And mainly from the revenues of the oil and gas sector.
                  This will be associated with either stagnation or slow growth.

                      In 2015, an Armenian company supplied equipment to Crimea for a plant with a capacity of about 25% of what you declared. It was a job for a family company of about 7 people for about 9 months with a budget in the prices of that time of the order of 3 to 5 million rubles. It does not pull on an epoch-making event in the field of scientific and technological progress. An ordinary thing not only for Israel, but also on the shoulder of the industry of Nagorno-Karabakh.
                      I wonder if the DPRK's proposals were considered. You can see similar factories there. For example, for a performance of at least 50% of the Chinese one, it will be something like this. https://vk.com/uriminzokkiri?z=photo469579262_457382669%2Fphotos469579262

                        "The Armenian company has supplied equipment to the Crimea for a plant with a capacity of about 25% of what you declared." What did the Armenians supply - equipment for the production of polyethylene terephthalate?
                        "It was a job for a family company of about 7 people for about 9 months with a budget in prices of that time of the order of 3 to 5 million rubles." And they produce 15 billion liters of bottled water a year? Sorry, but you wrote some kind of garbage.

                        The profitability of a half liter soda plant starts at a labeller capacity of 6000 bottles per hour. That's 50 million bottles a year. The smallest production should have 2 lines per force majeure. In addition, bottling is widespread except for half a liter in 0,75 liters, 1 liter, 1,25 liters, 1,5 liters, 5 liters. There is carbonated and simple water, fruit, cola, kvass, tea. In light of the above, 25% may be an exaggerated figure. But the figure of 5% of your declared capacity of 5 billion belongs to the smallest profitable plant in modern Russia. And this plant in covid times is rarely more than 10% utilized. Russian factories produce this equipment quite successfully and can outbid the Chinese in prices. However, instead of stimulating Russian enterprises to invest in the development of more productive machines, the Russian ministry scares them by paying for the supply of Chinese products. By 2030, Russia will most likely not need so much bottled water. A country with a population of 100 million and a nurse's salary in a military hospital of 22000 rubles a month cannot drink 600 liters of bottled water (one and a half to two liters per person per day). Unless the people who have signed a contract with the PRC prohibit the Russians from drinking water that is not bottled at a Chinese factory in Kabardino-Balkaria.

                We have already gone through these huge plans. Strategy 2020 was approved by the order of the Russian government on November 17, 2008, headed by Vladimir Putin. The most important of his promises. The goal was to increase the real disposable income of Russians by an average of about 7,5% per year. In reality, 6% for the entire time. By 2020, the incidence of poverty will be reduced to 6,2 percent (8,9 million people). In fact, 2019 is 20 million people. By 2020, Russians will receive an average of $ 2700 per month, have at least 100 square meters for a family of three, and the middle class will make up more than half of the population. and not from sunflower oil.

                  “The need to develop a second version of the KDR-2020 was due to the global financial and economic crisis of 2008. Despite the fact that until the fall of 2008 it affected only developed countries, the KDR was approved after the economic crisis broke out in Russia itself. The CRA turned out to be irrelevant immediately after its adoption.The crisis led to a sharp and deep drop in economic indicators and made it impossible to achieve most of the quantitative indicators expected from the CRA-2020 of the first stage calculated for implementation for the period 2007-2012. CRA assumed:

                  increase in life expectancy by 2,5 years;
                  GDP growth by 37 — 38%;
                  labor productivity growth by 40–41%;
                  reducing the energy intensity of GDP by 17-19%;
                  growth of real disposable incomes of the population - by 53-54%;
                  growth of investments in fixed assets by 80-85%, etc.
                  Thus, Strategy 2020 is the second version of the concept of long-term development of Russia until 2020.
                  As of 2018, none of these targets have been met. Due to the departmental nature of the development of the CRA, which entailed the blurring of its number of provisions, it only indicated the quantitative indicators that were supposed to be achieved. The problems directly facing the Russian economy and society, as well as specific ways or steps to solve them or to achieve the goals set have not been identified and analyzed. ”It was no longer based on unjustified wishes. The 2030 program is real and down-to-earth based on real projects production of economically justified infrastructure development, etc.

        Nothing but nastiness and crap from the politicians and the leadership of this country should be expected. We are also waiting for the British Union to fall apart. As for the "reasonable regimes", we have already gone through this with the Gorbachevs and the Yeltsins.

              And what is the contradiction? After all, it seemed to all of them that everything - the next stage after the USSR would be the disintegration of Russia into parts. But it didn't work out. But hope lives on, judging by the statement of the head of the Mi-6. And Gorby is the personification of this hope. That is why he is so loved in the West.

Year after year, a surplus budget, $ 25 each, economic growth under 8%, the kindest relations with the West ... It was truly the golden age of modern Russia, only a very short one. From 2001 to 2006. Just a full five-year plan. But then the person from scratch went to aggravation. As he blurted out his Munich speech, so everything began to roll. Unsuccessful Olympic war, crisis, Bolotnaya-Manezhnaya, this smelly Crimea ... A decade comparable to the nineties. Completely on the conscience of the uncritical, for whom you leavened ones are ready to kill. So I see how joyfully you will run into the bayonet, behind the palaces and yachts of the oligarchs, to whose immense enrichment (and, by a strange coincidence, the sharp impoverishment of the people without economically justified reasons) sinless, of course, has nothing to do with it.

Question: Who else did not have time to speak out about the fact that everything was lost with us? The diplomats have already noted themselves in chorus, the heads of governments and parties of countries hostile to us, even Ukrainian schismatic priests, and then the journalists threw political statements at us. Well, how is it without British intelligence? No way! And recently, their queen asked the Minister of Defense: are you fighting the Russians? He said: how we are still fighting! Yes Yes.

    .. the head of MI6 (MI6) is worried about the "recklessness" of Russia, "heading for decline" ..

    From an objective point of view, Russia is in decline both economically and demographically.

    This person is right - we are degrading and moving where he indicated. Only 150 million people live in this huge country, the presence of a Slavic majority among whom is extremely doubtful statistically and has already been questioned in the border regions in the Far East by not Slavic population groups at all. Our large territory is a rag that everyone will soon begin to tear. It will not be necessary to have nuclear weapons for this ...
    There is absolutely no one to defend our country in the highest echelons of power, all power for today, with some very few exceptions, consists of the most selective degenerates, faces with hands that are still here, and seats with legs already over the hill in the same England, including.
    ... The imbeciles of the nineties. Long ago matured and gave birth to "witnesses of the Unified State Exam" (according to Zadornov) and several incorrigibly mutilated generations up to and including today's youth, who are completely inert intellectually and spiritually. This causes undisguised joy and hope for our soon end in the same MI6, including ... and pride, of course ... for the fact that the collapse of a great power was a success.
    .... The defense shield of our country rests on unique specialists of a very old age, for whom there is no replacement and there will be no replacement, just as there will be no replacement for the Soviet education and upbringing that raised these people.
    Nobody is going to correct this situation, therefore .. the result is already there and will only "improve". That's what the head of MI6 was talking about.

Restraining economic growth (by sanctions) seriously affects the Russian economy + numerous bans / restrictions on the sale and trade of technologies, + restrictions and pressure on the financial market of the Russian Federation ... other countries in the world do not have this (with the exception of Iran, North Korea, Cuba, Venezuela). And the fact that the Russian economy is still growing, albeit 2-3%, is a huge achievement. Of course, there is an option, to surrender your sovereignty, as Germany did with Japan, but the fate of Russia will be completely different ... even in the 2000s it became clear that the role of Russia in the West is a supplier of natural resources and that's all, about no other products supplied from Russia to the West is out of the question (on an industrial scale), i.e. there is no place for Russia, all the places have long been occupied and divided. The same applies to demography, the containment of the Russian economy, affects the standard of living, salary, etc. ... + there is a very powerful, anti-Russian wave in countries such as (Ukraine, Belarus) and where an ethnic group is close to us, and the West is quite successfully changes the consciousness of people, they no longer want to leave to live in Russia or consider themselves Russian, i.e. all this also affects the fate of Russia.

      And I searched the Internet about found this: "Last year, the UN made a forecast that by 2050 the population of Russia will decrease from 146 million to 135. According to the RANEPA report, the drop may reach 113 million, while a study by the University of Washington by the beginning of XXII predicts a population of only 106 million.
      Therefore, the West believes that Russia is already doomed. In 2020, we lost more than 500 thousand people. This is slightly less than the population of the Pskov region. And according to Rosstat statistics, Russia is gradually disappearing at an average rate of minus 400 thousand people a year.
      Under Nicholas II, Russia came out on top in the world in terms of natural population growth. Growth during his reign amounted to 50 million people "

    "A man is judged by the greatness of his enemy." - used to say J. Bond. Probably, Britain is sincerely afraid of losing its most "great and dangerous enemy" in the face of Russia.
    If Comrade Moore is a fan of films about J. Bond, then he is well aware of these words spoken by his "hero" in one of the recent films - "Quantum of Solace".
    Such fears are understandable. Suddenly, with the loss of Russia, Britain will have a really real enemy who will not tolerate rudeness, empty accusations, imposing sanctions and putting spokes in the wheels of development, work to destabilize the situation inside the country and will truly respond to all these intrigues of the British. That is, a real and dangerous enemy. What then will fans of "spy" stories from Britain do?
