New Putin? People are waiting for the Munich speech on our home themes.

97
A book by Anatoly Salutsky, a longtime author of the Literary Gazette, is published: “Putin and Fourth Russia. Will the president have enough hardness for “soft power”? ”

The collection of articles written over the past 10 years and published, including in “LH”, does not pretend to be sensational when publicists are competing who have gathered more fried facts or details from the personal life of the characters. The book is intended for those who reflect on the meaning and dynamics of change in the main triangle of the Russian political scene "Putin - the people - the elite". The author seeks to understand the identity of Putin himself, the changes that have occurred during the years he was in the highest posts of the state.

The book comes out on the eve of the V.N. 60 anniversary. Putin and puts before him, as the president of Russia, a number of critical questions, the answers to which must be given by all of us.

New Putin? People are waiting for the Munich speech on our home themes.TOT, YES, not TOT

This book does not belong to the category of solemn, festive publications, does not contain biographical details about the life of the head of state. It seems to me that it largely clarifies the answer to the famous question asked at the very beginning of his presidential journey: “Who are you, Mr. Putin?”
I have never communicated with Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin, I have not even seen him, as they say, “live”, and therefore my conclusions and assessments are unbiased. But I very carefully watched the actions, statements, style and, I would say, the habits of supreme power from the side, without being included in the turbulent whirlpools of specific political events.

In general, it seems to me that the book recreates the complex and controversial image of Russia in the first twelve years of the XXI century, when the main role in the development of the state belonged to Vladimir Putin. At the same time, from the very beginning of my writer's interest in his personality, I was most attracted by precisely the sphere of his activity, which the president himself recently called "soft power." And, looking ahead, I cannot help expressing great surprise that this very important component of government efforts was “addressed” by the head of state primarily to international relations issues, although in solving internal political problems today, it’s “soft power” that has I would say it is of exceptional importance, which prompted me to put this topic in the subtitle of the book.

Today, President Putin is noticeably different from the one we knew before. In my, perhaps, subjective opinion, undoubtedly, for the better. And by the vague notion of “better,” I mean the new, heightened interest of the head of state in matters directly or indirectly related to the final formulation of the state ideology of the new Russia, which I wrote many times ago many years ago. In other words, all to the same "soft power."

Zero years of the XXI century, coupled with the upcoming period of the presidency of V.V. Putin, taking into account the path that Russia has already followed after the disaster of the 1990s, and the extent of the distance it has yet to go, will inevitably raise the question of historical the role of Putin, who led and continues to lead the country at a very crucial, crucial stage in its historical development.

TWO LINES

Soviet periodization began with a ten-year reign of the left-radical Leninist guard, which launched a great country on brushwood for the fire of the world revolution. The next seven years were transitional: picking up “household” stones scattered in the political pogrom was combined with the continued denial of Russian identity and leftist leaning into international culture. But the country's growing economic power inevitably had to come into conflict with spiritual nihilism, which hindered the rise. This was announced by the shot of Mayakovsky, a truly talented poet, stuck in the dead ends of leftist art. As in economics, the authorities suggested a vector for the spiritual development of society: in 1934, they introduced a new course of history at school, created the Academy of Architecture, the Writers' Union.

Third Russia begins

It existed until the mid-fifties, when the passionate energy of the red hundreds, whose numbers were undermined by the war, dried up. And the faithful Leninist, Khrushchev, began squandering national wealth (Crimea), demolishing churches and blaspheme Russian antiquity. The vicious idea of ​​a worldwide triumph of socialism re-emerged on the agenda, and the USSR got involved in a cold world war, squandering resources to support the so-called progressive regimes, in essence, reviving the fanatical idea of ​​Bolshevik messianism.

The place of the red hundreds was taken by the philistinism, about which Gorky wrote: "This class consists of people deprived of stable form, amorphous, easily taking any form ... Yesterday - a socialist, today - a fascist, just to eat hearty and irresponsible to command." It is not difficult to understand that these were precisely those educators about whom Solzhenitsyn lamented.

The system that emerged under Khrushchev was initially unstable. Politically, it was considered the basis of the CPSU, performing state functions. But in order to understand the causes of the third civil war, its consequences and the Russian historical path in general, it is useful to divert from politicized assessments. In fact, the CPSU was only a shell for the amorphous bourgeois mass that dominated the USSR in the post-Stalin era. This shell, the bourgeois flesh of flesh, holding within itself what was called Soviet society, took different forms - depending on the moods of the educated, increasingly tilting towards the well-fed West, in competition with which Khrushchev got involved. When the list became critical, the shell broke, existing only formally in the years of perestroika. Diverse elements of society that have fought for domination have fallen out of it. The property question, allegedly the main one, was simply used as an incident belli - a pretext for war. If the political left won, the country would also go to the market. But - in the Chinese way.

Subsequent events with striking literalness, prompting them to raise their eyes to heaven, reproduced what happened after the revolution of 17. The decade 1990-x was a period of unchallenged power of right-wing neo-Bolsheviks and leftists from art, who sought to strangle the Orthodox Church with unbridled sectarian freedom. (Everyone remembers the desperate struggle around the law that limited sectarianism.) The next seven years, up to the global financial crisis, also turned out to be transitional, and in a familiar pattern: picking up “economic” stones scattered by non-Bolsheviks, who dissolved Russia in “universal human values”, combined with neglect of the values ​​of national culture, the increase in propaganda of immorality, bad tastes.

Meanwhile, in 2008 Russia came to a turning point - the presidential election, the inevitable change of the “king”. And the question: “What's next?” - rose to its full height.

Responding to it today after the fact, it is necessary to take into account that in the national, depoliticized system of coordinates, the historical movement of Russia proceeds along two autonomous lines. One of them was designated clearly: Lenin - Khrushchev - Yeltsin. All three periods have similar features and are characterized by the impairment of national Russian traditions, the impoverishment of the spiritual life, neglect to the basic interests of Russia, attempts to “internationalize” it and, as a result, rapid or deferred (Khrushchev) economic decline. The heroes of the day were internationalists or general human beings, which is the same thing culturally detached from the people (Khrushchev’s attacks on abstractionists and the dispersal of the “bulldozer exhibition” made the representatives of left art the heroes of the day).

The other line includes periods when Russian interests were put at the forefront, relied on a system of national moral and cultural values, respected Russian antiquity, without giving up the best European trends. At such times, the sovereign power sharply increased, and the “Russian Europeans” became the role model - Moscow people (by the way, of many nationalities and geographically unattached to Moscow) of the pre-Peter warehouse, who remained faithful to the roots, but ready to perceive and creatively enrich modern world achievements. This line leads from Alexander III to Stalin.

What is the trajectory of the historical movement that Russia went after the presidential election of 2008 of the year?

Recalling that election cycle, it should be noted that initially the overwhelming majority of the people preferred the simplest and clearest option: it is necessary to change the Constitution and leave Putin for a third term. It is a mistake to assume that this point of view was rooted in any “pleasures to the authorities,” a flattery of officialdom and other purely tactical circumstances. If not with the mind, then, as they say, everyone knew in their heads: the country once again approached the historical fork, and did not want change. Putin’s refusal to run for a third term led to the fact that society, the authorities and the people were in a psychological dead end.

Most of the "augurs" agreed that Putin would propose a weak or ill successor to return to the Kremlin in a couple of years at the request of the people ...

In order to get out of the difficult fortune-telling of that period and realize what is actually happening, it is necessary again to move from politics to understanding the ethno-cultural shifts going on in the country. Even Stalin could not arbitrarily determine the historical movement of Russia, he only guessed the mentality of the red hundreds and headed them. Apparently, in the zero years of the 21st century, the authorities also felt the increasing pressure of multinational common people, dissatisfied with the devastation of 1990's and the overwhelming dominance of foreign trends.

The collapse of the CPSU and the collapse of the USSR, the third civil war, which took the form of perestroika and a change in the social system, when, according to Blok, “the law broke about the law”, the former Soviet society shook up much. The abolition of all sorts of restrictions, including the institution of registration, career dependence on membership in the CPSU, led to the fact that analogous blacks (with innate religious consciousness) and red hundreds, who dream of climbing to different levels of regional and federal authorities. In addition, opinion polls have long shown the growing discontent with oblivion of moral values, in connection with which large claims are made to television.

However, the spread of new means of communication, above all the Internet, has had a special, exceptional effect on the people's speculation. According to the experience of color revolutions, especially Egyptian, it is considered that network methods of communication lead to an increase in the role of the advanced, read, protest-minded strata of society. But in Russia, the opposite is true: it is the Internet that has greatly influenced the growth of self-awareness of the deep, common people, allowing millions of ordinary poor, but ambitious young people to break out of the humiliation of everyday life with their minds and hearts to join the newness of the current “IT-friendly” life and urge them to its peaks - first municipal, and then higher ...

IPHONE AND CAPTURE

The extraordinary similarity of the phases of the Russian historical movement is a non-random chronological coincidence. In a country with a rich historical past and deep cultural roots, it is not right-wing political fights that have a decisive influence on the course of development, but the confrontation between two ethnocultural types of people formed in pre-Peter the Great and Peter the Great. This feature, unknown to Europe, gives our dialogue with the West the character of a civilizational dispute, and our spiritual values ​​- extraordinary vitality, even in conditions of total television pressure.
Russia has always been able to find answers to the challenges of the time that are new to world practice. And it was precisely such an absolutely non-standard answer that was found in 2008: a fundamentally new mechanism of transfer and preservation of power was created, ideally fitting into the constitutional framework, absolutely legitimate and democratic. This mechanism is called "tandem".

There is no need to talk in detail about how many stinging arrows were fired against the Putin – Medvedev tandem, how they blasphemed and continue to blaspheme him in Russia and other parts of the world. But these arrows are poisoned solely by political poison, the current world-wide Internet party is not accustomed to taking into account the trajectory of the historical movement of great states, did not understand that this is not just about someone's personal agreements, but about the mechanism of transfer of power - and not in the name of power as such, but in order to preserve the country's sustainable development.

Political thought immediately began to chew on the topic of the liberal Medvedev and the traditionalist Putin, although it later turned out that Medvedev always turned out to be a conservative, and this deeply disappointed his supporters. However, as always, much more important differences between the members of the tandem were overlooked: Medvedev fits very well into Petersburg, in other words, Peter’s ethnocultural type, which, of course, has nothing to do with his Leningrad origin, and Putin clearly belongs to the ethnocultural type of black or red hundreds, that is, before Peter the Great. (Putin himself understands a more precise definition of his type, since at this historical stage the vital interests of the black and red hundreds coincide.)

And it was precisely these very significant differences between Medvedev and Putin with striking, truly frightening similarity that led to the repetition of the confrontation that arose during the second civil war between the Red Hundreds and the Leninist guards of the radical Bolsheviks. Fortunately, this time it was not and could not go about repression, but from the point of view of political mutual aversion and rage began to go off-scale.

The similarity is not external in nature. The so-called protest movement of disgruntled townspeople, whom Medvedev and Surkov rashly called the advanced part of society, largely consists of descendants of the repressed Leninist guard, who especially defeated Stalin, and if again distracting themselves from political categories, from supporters of Russia's universal path, rejecting its dominion . It is no coincidence that the Ekho Moskvy website, which became the ideological inspirer of the protest and where Putin is violently annihilated, does not say a word about the disastrous Yeltsin decade: in the ethnocultural sense, Yeltsin’s line on dissolving Russia in the world supranational space is quite consonant with Lenin’s international plans. The Leninist-Khrushchev line was also clearly manifested in the far-overlapped atheistic criticism of transcendent attacks on the Russian Orthodox Church. But the strongest evidence on this point is, perhaps, the leftist leader of Udaltsov, the grandson of the inflexible Leninist, after whom one of the Moscow streets is named. Here the similarity is truly literal. A descendant of the Bolshevik revolutionary calls Putin an impostor, refusing to recognize his presidency ...

In this connection, it is interesting to recall the history of the creation of national anthems. Stalin was attracted in the Mikhalkov version of the word "Russia", and Putin used Soviet music in combination with the old Russian coat of arms and tricolor flag, trying to emphasize the continuity of all stages of Russian history. By the way, the absence of the word "Rus" in dozens of other versions of the text submitted to Stalin reflected the secret protest of the "Kataev" intelligentsia against the sovereign course. And we all remember the hot bouts, right up to the demonstrative exit of some deputies from the State Duma meeting hall, when Putin proposed the current national anthem.

It is interesting from this point of view to assess the fierce struggle around the exam, at one time approved by Putin. With all the imperfections of the Unified State Exam, he widely opened the way to higher education specifically for the children of the provincial “Red hundred”. And steep assaults on the USE by the protest intelligentsia, perhaps unconsciously for her, reflect her final disengagement from the new type of Russian people (again, not in an ethnic sense), which is being formed in provincial Russia.

These and other discrepancies between Putin and Medvedev led to a very curious phenomenon. An admirer of Western pop groups, arch-promoted on the part of the Internet Medvedev, whom the network community dubbed Ayfonchik, saw in modern means of communication only a useful technical innovation that facilitates Russia's entry into the world family of civilized nations. (I forgot, Medvedev forgot wise Pushkin, who bequeathed: “Enter Europe, but stay Russia!”) And Putin, who deliberately met Obama with a Russian samovar, boot and a man in a red shirt, managed to see on the Internet a powerful means of awakening provincial Russia ...
Barely enthroned in the Kremlin, in his first presidential address, Vladimir Putin said: “The development of society is unthinkable without agreement on common goals. And these goals are not only material, spiritual and moral are just as important. The main thing is to understand: what kind of Russia we believe in and what kind of Russia we want to see. ” Alas, the socio-economic and political routine, the personnel roundabouts of the following years, put Putin’s first intuitive sentiments into the background. But today life itself demands a return to them ...

Will there be a Munich speech on internal topics?

In the first half of 1990, some assistant (or adviser?) Yeltsin, apparently in charge of humanitarian issues, convinced his patron that the new Russia, which had replaced the rough Soviet-communist skin with like market covers, badly needed a new national idea. This ridiculous propaganda idea failed very quickly. Someone else jokingly, or seriously, in the absence of other sprouts of public interest, would not mind coming to national unity through football hockey and other sporting passions.

But one way or another, it seems that the national idea in its classical understanding in the new Russian open spaces is not expected. And in this regard, the sacramental question suddenly arises: does it really need this national idea? After all, if we ignore the approaches of the former Yeltsin advisers and current communist leaders who tried to redefine the famous triad of the XIX century in a new way, we will have to admit that in all the centuries-old history of Russia, what is now called the national idea was only twice. This is “Moscow is the Third Rome!” Of the elder Philotheus and the Uvarov formula “Orthodoxy, autocracy, nationality”. In other periods of our history, very, by the way, bright - for example, under Ivan the Terrible, under Peter I, under Catherine II - was this clear, well-rounded national idea? And aren't these two formulas forever stamped on state tablets and gold script drawn in the minds of all Russian generations, only a special case, just a very successful verbal reflection of some other, more important and deep-seated state-historical processes that can successfully to develop in the absence of slogan support?

This comment is directly related to President Vladimir Putin. And even formally, given the sufficient length of the period during which Vladimir Vladimirovich is already and will still be at the helm of the Russian ship. Meanwhile, the answer to the question: “Is the leader of the nation or an employee?” Has a very deep and not at all formal meaning.

For the essential concept of “leader of the nation” imposes special obligations on the president, far beyond his personal preferences, and special responsibility. When they say that we need a king, this phrase must be correctly understood. This is a deep historical tradition, which, changing its internal content, nevertheless remains extremely important and in demand for the people and the development of the country as a whole.

The centuries-long autocracy that forms the basis of the tsarist tradition ended in March 1953 with the death of Stalin. And the further gradual decline of the country was not least connected with the uncertainty that the Supreme Ruler personified in the eyes of the people.

The president, who declared himself an “employee” in 2002, is not needed by Russia. And Putin’s then super-modest self-denial of self-denial can only be explained by one thing: Putin accidentally, by coincidence, found himself at the highest state post and internally, with his inherent decency, he still couldn’t believe it, not realizing that it was not his personal perception now what happened, but about the attitude of the people to the supreme power in general ...
Putin only today, after difficult elections for him, got a chance to become a true king - in the sense of a true national leader, burdened with the greatest obligations towards the entire people of Russia. However, does Putin himself fully understand what responsibility now lies on his shoulders?

Meanwhile, time is not waiting. The royal authority arises precisely in the first, major, defining days. And responsibility to the people should be higher than personal obligations. The people are tired of diarchy, from the endless struggle under the carpet. The people are waiting for the Munich speech on our home themes, and not about “tightening” the nuts or loosening them, but about abruptly, with one blow of the royal word, do away with the bureaucratic fuss, take all the responsibility on ourselves - and in the sphere of power solve everything in your own way ...

Putin will be able to become such a high moral authority - everything in Russia will go fine, like clockwork. It will continue to be tactful in dealing with personnel issues, it is too vigilant to take into account all sorts of side interests, and in fact, to share with someone the supreme power - does not recognize its people as king, and those who overwhelmingly elected him as president will refuse it.

NO, NOT A “HUNDRED WORKER”

The fact that Vladimir Putin, who returned to the Kremlin, began to change, is noticeable by many factors. I once wrote that Putin of a second term (2004 – 2008) locked himself in the bureaucratic circle, and today we see that the president invites governors for talks - with the whole team, and by no means bureaucratic, he carefully listens to people from the bottom of life. He calls miners to Moscow - not just for a holiday, but for advice. This, of course, particular, minor details, but they are combined with other important innovations.

And yet, what is happening now very much resembles the deepest epiphany of the unforgettable Mikhail Saltykov-Shchedrin Evgrafovich, who wrote the famous cycle called “In an environment of moderation and accuracy”. Carefully, step by step, Putin goes to his goal - almost the same way he did it ten years ago, when the country was balancing on the verge of non-existence and any wrong move could again throw it to the abyss. But the situation has changed dramatically since then. And not only in terms of strengthening the Russian state, but also in terms of popular speculation. Having recovered from the 1990's ills, buying annually more new cars than in Germany, but still remaining in the tenacious embraces of “domestic slavery”, policeman, Zhekhehovsky and other lawlessness, people are increasingly perplexed: well, now what prevents to hit the fist on the table? ..

It is clear and obvious for people who are closely observing state affairs that Putin is making great efforts so that our Western partners (and actually competitors!) Do not drag us into any international conflicts using external force.

And indeed, some people in the West would very much like to drag us into a hot conflict like Afghanistan. However, these "someone" more and more clearly understand: it will not work! will not work! Today, for Putin, the main task is to collect lands: the strengthening of the Customs Union, the creation of the EurAsEC. And at the same time - the arrangement of a powerful defense shield, so that it would not come to anyone’s heads to try us for strength, using missile defense and so on. And it is precisely the futility of trying to draw us into an external adventure, coupled with a radical, super-modern renewal of the defense shield, that prompts our eternal western partners to resort to the only remaining, but well tested, method of weakening Russia - the creation of internal instability in the country.

It can not be that Putin did not understand this. But if he understands, then why does he allow himself to insult himself on the Internet with almost vulgar abuse? In general, what kind of national leader, who is covered in the world, being covered with network anonymity, is thrown with words from side to side, like a matchbox?

Yes, you can be above this, do not pay attention to this nonsense, and sometimes paid calculation. But these are personal, human considerations, the philosophy of the “hired worker”, despite everything, and despite everything, persistently and conscientiously doing his work. But is it possible not to think about how bitterly the people perceive merciless insults to the national leader? And this is not the point to prohibit, censor and so on and so forth.

But answer!

To answer so calmly, firmly and with dignity, so that people deeply respecting and electing their national leader would be proud of their chosen one.
How proud in those days when Russian President Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin spoke with his famous Munich speech, announcing to the whole world about Russia's full-fledged return to the geopolitical scene, announcing our active participation in solving complex international issues of the modern world, which is at a turning point in its development, associated with the completion of the centuries-old Western dominant and the movement of the global center of gravity to other regions.

That “soft power” in international relations, about which President Putin spoke, speaking before Russian diplomats, is now coming to the fore in the internal political life of the country, acquiring a new, modern meaning and sound.

But will the president have enough hardness for “soft power”?

      and the descendants will give him an assessment of how personality. the story

      And why the descendants? Each year, each country is rated by contemporaries. There are achievements - there are!
      Rating of Russia 2012
      The overall rating of Russia in the ranking of the countries of the world is 59th place, between Romania and Mongolia. This year, the standard of living in Russia grew by 4 points. It should be noted that last year Russia took 63rd place in the ranking of countries of the world, in 2010 - 69th.

      In terms of economic indicators, Russia dropped in the ranking from 64th place to 72nd.
      Opportunity for entrepreneurship - 50th place.
      The level of corruption and the effectiveness of governing the country is 96th (there were 101).

      The quality of education in Russia is 34th (there were 38).

      In terms of health, Russia ranks 42nd in the ranking (was 47). Life expectancy in Russia is still quite short - 60 years. (average life expectancy in developed countries 70-75 years),
      Russia also remained 82nd in the security rating. But still, 48% of Russians feel safe, moving around the streets at night - this is a low figure on a global scale, but it is higher than last year (35%)

      Freedom of citizens - 87th place (was 88th) in the overall ranking of the countries of the world.

      Social life. In the ranking, Russia rose to 48th place (from 53rd). Russians trust relatives and friends, but do little to help strangers.

      And yes, today I saw the news. Prices for seats in reserved seats will increase by 60%, but why, why in reserved seats? And they explained to us - for the sustainability of their business activities carriers

              Easy to settle: MONEY IS VERY NEEDED!
              Last summer, Russian Railways made a decision to reduce the number of commuter trains and is persistently implementing it, despite the fact that it was said about the inadmissibility of this at different levels. And what do you think, how did they explain it ?! Low collection rates for commuter trains .... Yes, just imagine, top managers believe that deteriorating service conditions will increase collection rates. What "radishes" are they after ?! I always bought a ticket, but because now I have to "drive" into the train carriage every morning, I no longer think about buying a ticket, I think about the question of where to get up in order to get on the carriage and go to work.

            So they will soon become unavailable with such prices either. A ticket to Moscow on Transaero 4500 (two hours of flight, plus food and drinks on the plane). Russian Railways - reserved seat 2500 (!!!) Coupe even about 4000 (on the way 25 hours, food at your own expense), so count, plus you still need to rest after the train ...

Ordinary railway workers have a salary of 15-20 thousand locomotive drivers, depending on the road, 30-60 thousand. The salary of the head of the depot is 200-250 thousand, the heads of departments of the road 300 thousand, the head of the road - 1 million, and the above is not measured. And how many steal.

          Once again, the poor are still poorer. Well, they’re not used to it. It's only the beginning.

          The state has long realized that the easiest way is to take money from the poor. Of course they don’t have much money, but the poor - to hell.

        The people have already heard a lot of speeches from GDP, by the very tomatoes! But the Munich affairs, something is not visible, however, the people have already figured out what to expect from GDP.

        Roughly speaking, I did not care about all sorts of international ratings of his presidency there. I have one, personal assessment of his work - Since the time of his first term, a huge hole in the asphalt shines in the courtyard of our house, and to this day has not been patched up and I do not care about the geopolitical reasons for this situation. If you failed to create normal conditions for the life of citizens of the country, then the price is worthless.

        Ratings are one side of the coin. But after reading the article, I caught myself thinking that some time ago I began to look more closely at Putin "version 2,0". And here I agree with the author of the article - the GDP very carefully, almost indistinctly moves our monstrous management system, with its corruption, nepotism and arrogance, towards a more civilized one, or something. More transparent, more strict, more legal.
        I don’t think that at least one person (except our shit, of course) seriously believes that the whole system can be changed in a year. Or for five. In general, the education of the elite is a historical process. Therefore, dozens of years.
        In general, I somehow began to feel that Putin has changed. He became different. A little, but distinct. He began to treat the West more sharply, more attentive (but without naivety) to the East, began to tighten up and change ministers. These trifles are actually not trifles at all - remember that under Putin "version 1,0" absolutely any idler sat in ministers quite calmly, not worrying about his fate.
        The situation is similar to the development of Stalin - he did not touch his own while there were strangers. And when everyone became their own, each sister received her earrings. Without hesitation and excuses.
        Maybe we come to responsible management today? Not in the 30's version, of course, the wrong world, and we are not the same, but still?

      Serial production of the promising fifth-generation fighter T-50 (PAK FA) will begin by 2020. About this, as reported by RIA Novosti, on Wednesday, October 10, said Russian Minister of Defense Anatoly Serdyukov.

      Previously, serial production of the aircraft was planned to begin in 2015., And small-scale production - already in 2013. The arrival of the first aircraft to the Ministry of Defense was expected by 2016. What caused the delay in the start of mass production of aircraft, Serdyukov did not specify.

I remember Ivanov long ago said that the first T-50 squadron will be with us in 2012. In short and in the end, what do we stay with? pathos, how much URA was on the site, but the point of this is 0.

But I respect him, for the fact that he turned his neck to Bolshevism and thanks to this, among other things, he won the Second World War? for the fact that he returned much from the arsenal of the Empire, abolished the commissariats, returned the ministries, screwed one-man command into the army, returned the "golden shoulder straps" to an almost tsarist uniform, and stopped the persecution of Vera. restored the industry to the level of the Empire, albeit really at the expense of the poverty of the people, but he did not destroy the industry during the period of Jewish omnipotence, and without it Guderian tanks would have reached the Urals in 41

                    2. The Ten Commandments have been given to us; there is not just one excuse for their ideological violation, including robbery-looted and he is also a thief! and the like about do not kill and stuff
                    3. Women are primarily mothers! everything else that prevents them from being mothers is evil!
                    4. Need help, for those who for some reason can not work! But we must proceed from the fact that I didn’t borrow from him (unlike the military, he borrowed the protection of life from him).
                    5. Idler should not be at my expense!
                    6. For Faith! Tsar (president)! And the Fatherland! not an empty phrase! And all three concepts are single and not separate for me! I do not want to become a Bolshevik or hairy or red.

By the way, before the presidential election, I tried to find information about this case on the Internet. And I didn’t find anything, links to sites gave errors or the sites themselves were full of viruses and pop-ups.

    The author draws interesting analogies: he puts Lenin-Khrushchev-Yeltsin in one line, the second is Alexander 3-Stalin, and Putin seems to be asking for it. This is not correct, to put it mildly, if only because Stalin himself considered himself to be the successor of Lenin's cause, which has been repeatedly If we are talking about "collecting and squandering" lands, then such analogies do not work at all. For 12 years, nothing has been collected yet, and it is not a fact that we will collect at all, We can do this if our society, our the political and economic system will be attractive to other peoples. But if practically the same thing is happening throughout the post-Soviet space, the meaning is where. Of course, somewhere is worse, somewhere is better, but the system is the same. And to equalize Stalin and Putin, as the author is trying to make hints, it is BSC, or simply does not matter what equates horseradish with a finger.

    The author asks whether there was a national idea in Russia and whether it is now. It was, of course, there is, but the country's leadership so far pretends that it does not exist. The idea was Russian, with all the features inherent in Russian philosophy, politics, culture and economics. In the XX century, the Russian idea was transformed into a communist one with some differences, but on the whole retained the main core. In a nutshell, the core of the Russian idea is justice for all. The Russian idea was implemented by the Russian nation and all the peoples of the Russian Empire, the communist idea was implemented by the Soviet (Soviet = Russian + the same peoples). Without an idea, a modern state (let alone an empire, whether Russian or Soviet) cannot exist for a long time, the tops of the Russian Federation feel this and are trying to find this idea. It is easy to find an idea, it is lying underfoot, but Putiners are not trying to pick it up, at least for the time being they are afraid, and it is clear why. The people in Russia (as opposed to the leadership) are 85% Russian by blood, and spiritually, all 95% are Russian. The Russian people are now removed from power, both economic and political. But controlling the economy and politics, the temporary workers have no power over the national idea. Statements about the absence of a national idea are an attempt on the blue eye to replace this very idea. But you can only replace a sign, and not the idea itself. At the beginning of the XNUMXth century, ideological sabotage was committed - the Russian people were called the Soviet people. But the idea remained the same, even with Jewish revolutionaries at the head of the state. The signboard can be changed, but, as in the joke, where do you want to put your thoughts? The national and national idea comes from the Russians. The national ideas of other peoples within Russia, with all due respect to them, uniting ideas that suit everyone, cannot be offered. And the Russian nation is now divided within various state entities - the Russian Federation, Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan, and the countries of the Baltic. Therefore, the vanguard of the national (Russian, Russian) idea is now the reunion of the divided Russian people. This will be realized either with the current government, or without it, or in spite of it. The power can join the idea of ​​the people or not, but the historical pattern cannot be stopped. Any artificially invented national idea is not viable. Having reunited, the Russian people will surely raise to the shield the ideas of peace and justice, which all the peoples of the Earth so lack now.

    There is really more positive leader in the board, especially in foreign policy as opposed to his upbringing ... But things in domestic politics leave much to be desired .... The external enemy is strong, but not so much as to exert pressure with the help of military power , and that is why they, pretending to be friends or strategic partners, do everything to undermine Russia from the inside ... It’s enough to look at the impudent physiognomy of McFaul and the actions of people who hate Putin who communicate with him and the whole course of enemy thought to capture the Russian state becomes clear. .. It is necessary to stop the promotion of Western democracy (namely, Western) in the country, especially to prevent the development of liberal juvenile justice that destroys Russian families and our foundations, it is necessary to prevent the promotion of pederasty and lesbianism with feminism, to stop incitement of hostility on ethnic and religious grounds. Along with this, I think it is necessary to raise the status of special services, the army and the navy, being guided not only by raising salaries, but by a real legal base and real political will .... I think that Putin will succeed in this during my lifetime and will not make him change his mind about him as a leader, people who gave him a credit of trust for the restoration of great Russia ...

            Well, the turnout was 65%. Many did not come just because all the candidates were not satisfied. 35% of the voters are many.

    As a citizen of the Russian Federation, I don’t see any real achievements of Putin’s gang in foreign policy !!!
    And, the events of 080808, as well as the annual problems with gas supplies through the neighboring Soviet republics vividly showed the "achievements" of Putin's comprador power

      Russia has never had any friendly countries ... Everyone always needed something from Russia ... Russia should have only three friends: the special services, the army and the navy ... This has been the case at all times, especially under the communists ... After the traitorous communist Gorbachev destroyed the USSR and the Warsaw Pact, all pseudo-friends began to look for shelter from our potential enemies ... What kind of friendship are you writing about here? Further, what agreements with these countries could there be when Yeltsin and his gang had already sold the country and we had nothing to support these "friends? And what does Putin have to do with it? Learn history and find out that NATO's advancement to the East happened thanks to Gorbachev. It was verbally promised him that this would not happen ... It happened, but even before Putin ... Only after Medvedev's departure, they began to listen to Russia in the international arena, which was not the case in the era of Gorbachev, Yeltsin, or Medvedev. ..Operation 080808 was carried out during the reign of Medvedev, and if it were not for a timely kick in the ass to Medvedev, then we would have an enemy under our belly ... You are not a patriot ... You are a provocateur .... By the way, I in 96 he was for Zyuganov, until he realized that this person once again surrendered the government to Yeltsin and the democratic west ... Putin, the only one who did not chicken out and did not allow the collapse of Russia to the state of which you so dream ... You are a false patriot, and worse than that, a provocateur ...

        It seems to me that dialogue with this gentleman is not constructive. He lives with his truth, someone else's opinion is not interesting to him.
        He then knows how to make listen to the opinion of Russia in the international arena - he will probably remember the atomic bomb.
        In my opinion, such "patriots" are worse than Navalny and Udaltsov - at least they work for money, and these are just crazy.

The increase in salaries, first of all, not to doctors and teachers responsible for the physical and moral health of the nation — you know yourself.

    If you have nothing to answer on the essence of the above points in order to whitewash the honor of this enemy, then do not talk nonsense. In your opinion nonsense!
    If on the way to these successes he had to destroy many competitors, dissenters and bring to the grave not a small part of the country's population, then to hell with such successes.
    If the success of the gdp is in weakening and destroying the country, then I personally don’t need such successes.

    you know, you look at Russia and ask yourself why one person is trying to do something, but the people are waiting (at the same time), really not doing anything, that tomorrow will be fine. This is called laziness. For 12 years, much has changed and now Russia has begun to indicate that and how to do it. My opinion is that everything is not enough for people, although there can be no limit. History shows that Russia can have only one owner, and if there are many, then Yeltsin serves as an example. Of course, I do not live there, but the opinion is parties that the gdp will raise Russia to the proper level ...

    - 62nd in terms of technological development
    - 127th in terms of population health

    - 3rd in the dissemination of child pornography
    - 2nd in number of murders per capita
    - 2nd place in the number of emigrants
    - 1st place in terms of growth of dollar billionaires

    We take 1st place in terms of national wealth. Both in absolute value and per capita ...

    Comrade P. has an answer to the question - Why is the income of the population so low, with such national wealth?
    Why comrade P. so humiliates his people?
    Why with comrade P. there is no price reduction, as with Comrade. Stalin?
    Why with comrade P. the country is unbearably long in many respects along with the most backward countries?
    And many more. Why ...
    Than comrade P. wants to please the people? Another promise again?

      Then my friends threw off a link to a very interesting video. Some meeting, as I understand it. It was when the figure put in place for Mr. Putin. No, I saw photographs of Dmitry Anatolyevich in which he looked like not quite mentally healthy, but I didn’t really believe in them, well, you never found a person at the wrong time. And I was struck by the reaction of the so-called Goebels ER, Mr. Surkov at the very end. Although Mr. Zyuganov, as if someone did not belong to him, said things that were sore. look, then minus the health. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kZrGwYGyCHo

    "The vicious idea of ​​the worldwide triumph of socialism was again on the agenda, and the USSR got involved in the cold world war, squandering resources to support the so-called progressive regimes, in fact, reanimating a fanatical idea of ​​Bolshevik messianism."

    Nonsense, it was a real geopolitical struggle.
    I do not agree with the author of the article. In particular, I note: Putin is just a Westerner, he inherits the line of Peter, the course towards Russia, as a great European country.
    So why is Khrushchev unequivocally credited with the category of destroyers? And so on, in general, not a very thought-out article.

      Are you serious???
      In his article “Democracy and the quality of the state” Putin, referring to the events of the 90s, writes about “oligarchic elites” who “shamelessly used the state” and “shared the public property”. The phrase about the division of the “public property” causes special emotion and could even make it cry if Putin willed and canceled the results of secured auctions by a patriotic decision. However, instead, he simply stated that "we have dealt with the oligarchy." Here are the results of the reprisal against her (in some places of the scheme there have been changes, but in general, it is still relevant):

      The question is interesting ... What can I say?
      First, not everyone can think and analyze (a property of the mind).
      It’s much simpler and easier to pick up someone’s idea and not bother.

      Secondly, propaganda is a terrible force. This can be seen in the example of fascist Germany. The propaganda minister was, as you know, Paul Joseph Goebbels.

      Thirdly, cowardice. People are afraid of the punishment of the authorities. The instinct of self-preservation makes us refuse criticism of the powers that be, and the best option is to become their friend, support, share their views and beliefs.

      Fourth, fear of change. A change of ruler (if it is not a tandem) always generates a change of course. In our country there was everything. And people want confidence and stability.
      Remember, the declared GDP rate is stability. Although - this is complete nonsense and utopia. But it worked.

      Let me remind you, on the topic, the words of G. Ford - "The hardest thing in the world is to think ..."
