In a corner of the sky, in a corner of the sky... How Sergey Lavrov ended up there

Diplomacy without barriers



Blocking the sky to the Minister of Foreign Affairs of a state with which diplomatic relations have not even been broken off is not just nonsense. This is something that goes beyond the elementary beat.

But what are we talking about. Such concepts as tact and politeness in the West, which stubbornly calls itself civilized, have long been replaced by the notorious tolerance and liberal delirium. Instead of honor, our opponents have arrogance, swagger and complacency.

And local politicians have long preferred permissiveness interspersed with stupid vulgarity to traditional values, however, without even having a clue what it actually is.

Abduction of Europa


A well-known mythical story is, one might say, about the system of socialism. The Soviet Union liberated Europe, at least Eastern and part of Central Europe, and it was stolen from him. A sort of western Zeus. Over forty years later.

The term is not the longest. Socialism itself lasted almost twice as long in our country. But what happened to Sergei Lavrov's plane can be considered in a historical context, if desired. Moreover, everything painfully resembles the well-known song of one of those who have now fled from Russia - “Do you remember how it all began ...”.

Many years later, someone, not without reason, will consider this just another illustration of the consequences of the voluntary (if not paid) exodus of the USSR from Eastern Europe. And a record-breaking speed.

Already at the end of 1989, Moscow decided to quickly curtail humanitarian and, in general, cultural exchange with the countries of Eastern Europe. All Soviet organizations involved in this exchange were withdrawn from Poland, Czechoslovakia, East Germany, Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria in a matter of days.

Joint film decades, music festivals and book weeks, as well as exchanges between scientific institutions, primarily in the field of social and humanitarian disciplines, have ceased. Such measures confirmed that Moscow was withdrawing from Eastern Europe, surprisingly quickly at that.

When did they wash their hands in Moscow?


Everything happened in full accordance with the promises of Secretary General M. Gorbachev to George W. Bush in Malta (December 1989). However, such tendencies in the Eastern European policy of the USSR were growing since the beginning - mid-60s.

So the fertile ideological and information ground for anti-Sovietism in these countries was created in advance. Moscow, on the other hand, did not care how and with what the cultural, humanitarian and, accordingly, informational niche in these countries would be filled.

Accordingly, already from the last months of 1989 - the year of the Velvet Revolutions, Western and pro-Western propaganda began to quickly capture the former pro-Soviet space in the same countries. Suffice it to say that, for example, already at the beginning of 1990, the first large-scale "Soros" symposia were held in all these countries on the issues of revising previous interpretations of the results of the Second World War.

In parallel, the identification of the "dictatorial" nature of "pro-Soviet" socialism proceeded. Moreover, with calls for mass restitution and lawsuits against Moscow for "long-term occupation." As a result, according to the generalized data of the Soviet embassies in these countries, in 1989-1990 alone, the number of anti-Soviet-anti-communist publications in the media of the same countries increased more than 10 times, and such events tripled.

According to the same data, since the second half of 1989 television and radio programs in those countries abounded - almost daily, and soon almost hourly - with criticism of socialism, the ruling communist parties, Soviet policy in Eastern Europe and in the whole world.

The apotheosis of the aforementioned campaigns and events was the dissolution of the CMEA initiated by Moscow - the Council for Mutual Economic Assistance (February 1991) and the Warsaw Pact (July 1991). And all the countries of Eastern Europe that participated in these structures were already associated with the European Union in the spring and summer of 1991.

Of course, with the appropriate ideological background. But the crawl into NATO had to be postponed, and for a long time. When the Soviet leadership in 1989 suddenly decided to admit that the disintegrating USSR, it turns out, was a chronic debtor of the same countries and therefore would pay these debts - $ 40 billion - anti-Soviet propaganda did not even shout "Hurrah!".

By the middle of 1990, she had simply finally won in the "ex-brotherly" countries of Eastern Europe. Moreover, with the rapidly increasing Russophobia at the same time in the aforementioned countries. Everything anti-Soviet became simply anti-Russian.


I don't want to be "for example"


Now the half-forgotten insult of the cartoon elephant is very relevant today. The shameless attack against the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry is so revealing that it raises concerns about the adequacy of those who did it. And it’s clear from the hint where it came from.

What, Biden didn't say that? Well, it is not required of him, although the politicians themselves in Sofia or Podgorica would hardly have decided on this. Although if they look at Moscow now, as we once looked at London and Washington, one should not be surprised anymore.

And yet, in the era when the USSR existed and, in general, when an elementary political culture still existed all over the world, in principle there could not be such excesses as with the plane on board of which Sergey Lavrov was.

Just a few examples of this:

- Taiwanese politicians flew freely to Europe and back through the European socialist countries, the PRC and / or the USSR;

- freely "non-Soviet" Albanian and Chinese leaders flew to each other through the same countries;

- Nicolae Ceausescu and the organizer of the mass genocide in Cambodia-Kampuchea, Pol Pot, exchanged visits without hindrance - also through the same countries;

- the leaders of the PRC, changing at different posts, flew freely through the USSR to Romania and Yugoslavia, the heads of these countries flew to the PRC along the same routes;

- through the EU-NATO countries, the leaders of Cuba and the USSR flew to each other without complications;

- European politicians freely visited Iran through Iraq during the Iran-Iraq war;

- The leader of Libya, Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, flew freely to Iraq and back even through Israel;

- Pakistani leaders just as freely exchanged - through almost hostile India - visits with the leaders of the PRC;

- Zairian dictator Mobutu Sese Seko flew freely to the SFRY and Romania through Albania and Bulgaria, as well as back;

- during the years of the Soviet-Yugoslav confrontation (1948–1953), neither Moscow nor Belgrade put obstacles in transit communications to each other;

- The USSR did not close its airspace for non-military transit to and from Israel.

This list could go on and on. So there is something to remind and what it would be useful to learn from modern politicians and countries ...

      The speed with which the socialist camp collapsed, the former socialist republics of Eastern Europe, the CMEA and the Warsaw Pact, once again confirms that it was the USSR that built socialism and created the socialist camp, including the CMEA, the Warsaw Pact, the developed economy and social standards of these countries, and they were essentially freeloaders and hangers-on who did not even make any effort to preserve all the good things that Russia and the USSR brought to them.

      What we don't remember is how Bulgaria closed the passage of our troops to Yugoslavia in 1999 to help her, or her subsequent "friendly" masterpieces in relation to Russia.

      We have what we have, and apparently the Russian generals were right when they reported to Alexander 2 that while our troops were liberating Bulgaria from the Turks, the Bulgarians at that time robbed the Turks and did not fight with their troops, advised him not to shed Russian blood for such "brothers" of the Slavs.

        The USSR was the main country around which the CMEA and the Warsaw Pact were built, our country controlled all the processes in these organizations and these countries. To say that they were freeloaders in the late 80s were such as Chubais. These countries produced a lot of the products that we bought and consumed a lot of the products that we produced, our economies were interconnected and complementary to each other.
        These countries, their leadership found themselves in a very difficult situation after the betrayal of Gorbachev and his gang, no one asked their opinion, the USSR, as the dominant country, simply put them before the fact.

    There was a "rumor" that they were going to steal the plane with Lavrov, and then blackmail the Russian Federation. If so, then the country that banned the overflight quietly went against it. Maybe this is for the best, given that the US and the EU have gone completely off the rails.

        Brad is not nonsense, but there is something!
        Serbian media, in particular Informer, reported that Western intelligence agencies were preparing a major provocation against Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.
        According to the source of the publication, the essence of the plan was to force the government aircraft of the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, flying to Serbia, to land at the airport of the unrecognized Republic of Kosovo with the help of NATO fighters. In the future, the Russian minister was to be used as a hostage and at the same time accused by the International Criminal Court in The Hague, by analogy with the former President of Serbia, Slobodan Milosevic.
        According to the same source, the main instigators of this plan were members of the British intelligence services. According to their plan, the capture of Lavrov in Europe was supposed to aggravate the current confrontation and lead to an escalation of the conflict between the EU and the Russian Federation.
        However, as noted by the sources of the publication, not everyone in Europe is ready to play along with London. Montenegro, North Macedonia and Bulgaria chose to close their airspace to the plane of the Russian Foreign Minister, so as not to be accidentally involved in a major international scandal.

    Everything anti-Soviet became simply anti-Russian.
    This is very subtle. I work with one person from Mariupol, last year (when I met him) he simply did not like "everything Soviet" (he, for a minute, is 50 years old), today, he does not like everything Russian, although he is Russian. Yes, his high-rise building is partially destroyed, but all relatives are alive. He is going to move to the Baltics, somewhere. I tell him today: soon the Baltic states will become part of Russia. The answer is: soon Russia, only beyond the Urals will remain.

In other words, in short, send Biden to retirement first, and then we’ll look.

        And what is the quality work of the Foreign Ministry? Not so long ago, Lavrov allowed himself very inappropriate remarks that the Kremlin had to apologize to Israel.
        Or here's another example for you, there is a department of international information security in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and it is headed by 70-year-old doctor of historical sciences Krutskikh Andrey Vladimirovich. This is the same swamp as in many other areas where leaders sit for 15 or more years, forming around themselves an advising team.

        This is more of a showcase for his personal qualities rather than his work. It is very difficult to call the work of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs unambiguously positive. Work in the post-Soviet space, the "ring of friends" formed on our borders, and finally the war in Ukraine. Is war a success or a failure of diplomacy?

          And the Foreign Ministry and personally V.S. Lavrov are to blame for this?! But don’t you think that this is the result of the collapse of the USSR, with the subsequent weakening, almost the collapse of Russia in all areas, and that in this state Russia had no opportunity to influence the situation either economically or militarily. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs fought this diplomatically as best it could - what can a diplomat do if his service is not backed up by the force of arms that will support him from the back!

        It depends on how you look, on the one hand, Lavrov is one of the most experienced diplomats in Russia, and his knowledge and skills are quite consistent with his position, but on the other hand, there is no general work of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs .... there is no soft power, there is no pro-Russian influence even in the CIS space, which let alone talk about other regions of the world ... our Foreign Ministry is not considered, the interests of Russia, to put it mildly, ignore everything (infringement of Russian speakers in the Baltic states, in Ukraine, in the EAEU ... the status of the Russian language, the demolition of our common monuments, the destruction of history, the infringement of Russian culture, etc.).

        Can such work of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs be called successful? Definitely not ... for comparison, you can take the work of Turkey and the UK, who are masters in spreading their influence in the world, from soft power to infiltrating their agents in the governments of other countries.

          "Definitely not ... for comparison, you can take the work of Turkey and the UK, who masterfully spread their influence in the world, from soft power to infiltrating their agents in the governments of other countries." Soft power is the competence of Rossotrudnichestvo. The fact is that the competence of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is legal diplomacy, soft power functions in a gray zone. Rossotrudinchestvo is led by Nikonov, I agree - there are no successes there. As for the introduction into governments, this is a matter of money, or rather their quantity In this operation, the embassy can function at the last stage, like the US embassy on the Maidan, however, the dirty work was done not by legal diplomacy, but by a complex of shadow or illegal functionaries.

    The only problem is where the Foreign Ministry will put the "kids" who hang out "in the foreign missions of the Russian Federation and receive a handsome salary for this. Well, they "make some extra money" slowly by selling secrets to Russia.

    This is not a lack of tact, but an act affecting the honor of the state (there used to be such a concept). So in one of the ports of Austria-Hungary they refused to salute the Russian flag with artillery salvos. The captain of the Russian ship said that he would open fire to kill if there was no salute.
    In short, Lavrov should have flown to Serbia.

    There are two, even 3 parts.
    1) When the USSR curtailed cultural cooperation, the Russian Federation did not resume it.
    Chernomyrdin, Lavrov pumped gas through Ukraine, defended offshore Rusal, the oligarchs saturated nationalist movements with money - but somehow I didn’t hear much about festivals. Here is the result.

    2) Planes with diplomats seemed to be forbidden. Yes, and it’s hard to believe that some Mongolian / Chinese communist could easily fly through Italy to the Second World War - red China and black Italy don’t fight

    3) The media have already begun to write that the crafty Britons wanted to capture the plane ... but this is on the conscience of the media.

    And I think that Comrade Lavrov deserves this overflight ban. Deserved!!! With their many concerns, instead of an adequate response. How long can you endure humiliation and wipe the spit of these Western half-wits? In any court, if you do not respond to an insult, you will not be respected even by those who are obviously weaker. And let him leave all these fables about diplomacy to half-educated students. After all, everyone understands perfectly well that it’s not about Lavrov, it was Russia that was boorishly humiliated, and boors must be put in their place harshly and boorish behavior of anyone, it is not fitting to endure great Russia. A boor, in the yard, in politics, remains a boor and should be treated accordingly.

    In a corner of the sky, in a corner of the sky... How Sergey Lavrov ended up there

    "The visit to Serbia by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, scheduled for June 6-7, put Belgrade and Serbian President Vučić in a difficult position, so it's good that it was postponed," Zorana Mihajlovic, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Mining and Energy of the country, said.

    Based on this, it is possible that the sky was closed for Lavrov at the secret request of Vučić himself.

    Such things must be painstakingly memorized, and each time the representatives of these states are poked into it as in G, the face of the representatives of these states in the future. Now it makes no sense to angrily bawl at this - it is the exploitation of casus beli that works here, which we did not create.

    ramzay21 - stop blaming only one Gorbachev - a fairy tale about the "miracle worker" Nils, drowning rats ...
    ALL TRAITORS - CPSU, KGB, MINISTRY OF DEFENSE, MVD, VLKSM. Betrayal developed shortly after 1953. Yes, and in the leadership of the socialist countries there were similar "communists" also shortly after 1953. THIS is also recognized by "Western" experts, Eastern Europe. emigrants, etc.
    Why was the Russian ambassador to Bulgaria recalled? - Gas, my friend, the role of a raw materials appendage must be preserved, and even strengthened, which the Russian Federation is proudly doing today. Pipes run through Bulgaria to Turkey, Serbia, Greece - what if the Bulgarians turn off the tap and the ubiquitous Gazprom runs out of new profits?
    In the current situation in Moscow, they will endure any insults (for Zakharova, Konashenkov's diplomatic colleague, will always answer something ...), - only so that gas and oil flow upwards there, and not only there ...
    By the way, even during the years of the Sino-Vietnamese war, hands. and the military leaders of Vietnam and the USSR exchanged "air visits" through the PRC. To the authors - RESPECT unconditional.

    Interestingly, if the plane with Lavrov continued flying to Belgrade, what would happen? He would have been shot down, imprisoned, Lavrov arrested?!
