Middle East edition: Russian President beat the West even without attacking Ukraine

74

Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to the Israeli publication Haaretz, managed to demonstrate to his neighbors the strength of the Russian weapons and a willingness to take action. As a result, the West believed in Russia's ability to launch a large-scale armed conflict in Eastern Europe. As the newspaper writes, in 2021 Russia, China and Iran showed the whole world that it is possible to act contrary to the rules established by the United States. And Putin has outplayed the West, according to the author, even without attacking Ukraine.


We will remind that earlier the Russian mass media reported about the return of 10 thousand servicemen who took part in the exercises near the Ukrainian border to their places of permanent deployment. However, the statements of the Russian press, as the Israeli newspaper writes, do not mean that the risk of a Russian attack on Ukraine has completely leveled out.

The author of the Middle East publication believes that Moscow's statements may not correspond to reality: the troops can be sent to their deployment sites "for show", and at any moment they can quickly return to the border. In addition, 10 thousand people are only a small part of the total number of Russian troops concentrated on the Ukrainian border, which is estimated at about 100 thousand people.

At the same time, the Israeli newspaper doubts that President Putin really could have planned an invasion of Ukraine. But, in any case, writes Haaretz, the Russian side has demonstrated the success of its strategy. Moscow managed to identify the weaknesses of both Ukraine and the NATO bloc as a whole. The North Atlantic Alliance was "obscenely frank" in its unwillingness to provide military assistance to Ukraine and to enter into a conflict with Moscow over Kiev.

As the Israeli newspaper notes, the Russian president still perceives Ukraine as part of the "Russian empire", but everything rests on the material side of the issue: Moscow fears that the conflict with Ukraine could cost it dearly in every sense. The Russian economy does not need war, since it only comes to its senses from the consequences of the pandemic. The Russian society will not approve of the growing flow of planes with "cargo 200", the Israeli newspaper writes.

Nevertheless, the blow to the world order has already been dealt, and in this regard, Putin rather won. He showed the world community that he can launch an offensive against neighboring countries. It is interesting that the Israeli edition writes about a certain monopoly of Russia on external invasions, forgetting that the United States in the twentieth century and in the twenty-first century was the leader in the number of invasions of other countries. Reproaching Moscow with Georgia and Syria, Haaretz for some reason forgets about Yugoslavia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and in the same Syria, American troops are also present, as well as Russian ones.

In addition to Russia, the Israeli newspaper accuses China of an open demonstration of military power. Although China, unlike the United States, does not participate at all in external military adventures, this does not prevent Haaretz from suspecting Xi Jinping of undermining the rules established by the Americans.

Finally, the Middle East media could not ignore Iran, its main enemy. According to Haaretz, the Islamic republic, with the support of Russia and China, has shown that it is able to withstand pressure from the world community and develop its own nuclear potential.

          In fact - no) but if you read his biography, as Andropov several times actively tried to introduce him into the KGB for leadership positions)
          This I mean that Gorbachev is a public person and in plain sight) it remains only to guess how many of the same “non-public Gorbachevs” Andropov was still able to smuggle into the ranks of the KGB)
          And why, precisely through the KGB during the domination of Andropov, the conflicts in the "national outskirts" of the USSR were "shaken"

        Already under Khrushchev, the KGB was limited, forbidding to conduct an investigation of high-ranking party leaders. So a priori Gorbachev was omnipotent at that time. The earth is glassy for him for the future, like his advisor cancer rais (how many people died because of their vanity)hiZucco, contributed to the collapse of the state by his actions. Guilty! hi

In 1919 she became the spokesman for the views of the Zionist socialists who emigrated from Russia, and in 1937 she was bought by the Schocken family.

    Ukraine has been part of the Russian Empire (Russian State) since 1654. Now there is no need to take Ukraine into Russia as a powerful, industrially developed country - it is practically "import substituted" here. We need a neutral, friendly, independent Ukraine - someday it will come to this.

        Lenin - Stalin - Khrushchev consistently annexed new lands to Ukraine (Ukrainian SSR). And Ukraine, as the Outskirts of the Russian land, appeared, apparently, after the Batu invasion, in the 13th century.

    Middle East Edition ...

    How quickly the "Middle East" Israeli edition changed its shoes in the air. As soon as in the eyes of the overseas (how to call it, so as not to offend the “heroes” of the Middle East) “partner” there was fear and uncertainty about NATO’s ability to put Russia at attention, the “non-member” country immediately began to philosophize about the combat capability of Russian troops.
    Finally, the Middle East media could not ignore Iran, its main enemy. As Haaretz writes, the Islamic republic, with the support of Russia and China, has shown that it is capable of withstanding pressure from the world community. and develop its own nuclear potential.

    The other day, I remember they boasted that they would do the underground centers of Iran, like the god of the tortoise.
