Why the Russian elite opposes the special operation

166

The goals of the special operation are gradually being realized, while somehow inconsistently and uncertainly, they constantly look back at the reaction of the "Western partners", no decisive measures are taken to strike at the decision-making headquarters and the enemy's logistical communications are not destroyed.


For the entire period of the operation, except for the Mariupol pocket, not a single encirclement of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was carried out (although it was already possible to organize five pockets), they are squeezed out of their positions, retain their strength and retreat to pre-prepared lines, where they continue to resist. The strategic turning point in the special operation did not come, the enemy did not lose heart and is even planning a "counteroffensive" on the southern front.

Many are wondering why this is happening and what is holding back the Russian military-political leadership from making a decision to defeat the Armed Forces of Ukraine and aggravate relations with the West, without whose help Ukraine would have been over long ago.

Of all the factors influencing such a position, I would like to focus on one - the attitude of the Russian ruling class to the special operation and its interests in the implementation or non-realization of the goals of the special operation.

The consensual nature of the Russian elite


It is no secret to anyone that the ruling class, which came on the “privatization” wave of the 90s, and the bureaucracy and intelligentsia serving it, pursuing the line of surrendering state interests and defending Russia’s integration into the Western community, basically retained their positions in power structures. and try to realize their clan interests. For them, Russia is just "this country", and it is not a pity to waste it.

Yes, purges have recently begun in this environment, some of them, such as Chubais and many former deputy prime ministers and top officials of state corporations, have already fled to the West, Mau, the ideologue of liberalism, is under arrest, but such pillars of Russian liberalism as Gref, Kudrin, Siluanov, Nabiullina, remained in their places and continue their destructive activities. For example, the Accounts Chamber, headed by Kudrin, recently proposed to write off $330 billion frozen in the West from the National Welfare Fund. It was with their help that we lost our gold and foreign exchange reserves, and now they are offering to forget about them and give them to the West!

There is another group in the ruling class, headed by the president, who defends the sovereignty of the Russian state and initiated the NVO. It should be noted that the president came to power not on the basis of some powerful popular movement. He ended up there by accident, he was put forward by the then ruling elite, and if they knew where it would lead, they would hardly have taken such a step.

As a result, a consensual nature of power was formed in the ruling class, implying a balance of interests of groups. The elite group of compradors, which placed their stolen assets in the West, united the pro-Western elite groups with all their expert, propaganda and bureaucratic apparatus, is responsible for the economy, finance, foreign trade and relations with the West.

An elite group of "sovereignizers" headed by the president, which united the military, special services and statesmen, is responsible for the sovereignty of Russia and defends the development of the state independent of Western influence. Any attempt to break the consensus threatens to revolt the losing part of the elite.

The elite group of compradors acts as a fifth column in power, deliberately working for the West and leading to the defeat of Russia in the global confrontation. The second elite group is still afraid to touch them and massively remove them from power, this can lead to the collapse of state administration and provoke uncontrollable processes to destroy the state. Compradors are slightly “thinned out” and their activity is limited, without taking drastic measures against them.

The latent confrontation between the two groups lasted quite a long time, and the hidden split between them sharply escalated in 2014 over Crimea and Donbass, the political system could no longer be in a consensus balance. The decisive step was taken by the President, who announced the NWO. It is difficult to say who and how convinced the military-political leadership of the possibility of a blitzkrieg in Ukraine and a quick change in the ruling regime, it was a mistake that led to the Istanbul talks.

Encouraged compradors achieved the humiliation of Russia, she agreed to leave all the occupied territories and be content only with the recognition of the Crimea and Donbass. But the United States and England did not allow the implementation of the deal, besides, the Russian society was categorically against it, and the deal did not take place. The special operation has switched to a sluggish regime, in which there are no strategic victories, and the troops are slowly solving the tasks of liberating the territory.

In the current situation, the compradors did not give up and are convincing the president that Russian society is tired, the economy will not withstand a long war with the West, and it is urgent to negotiate a truce with a freeze on the conflict. They are trying to prove the danger of mobilization and centralization of government, that the people are tired and can get out of obedience, while the army is ready to abandon the front and raise weapon against power. Their goal is to push the country to "Minsk-3" and hand it over to the West with giblets.

"Sovereignizers", on the contrary, defend the need to continue the special operation to the bitter end and achieve the goals set. The West, in turn, shows its readiness for a long confrontation and convinces everyone that Russia got involved in the war with its complete unpreparedness, counting on a failed blitzkrieg, and that now it must look for ways out of this hopelessly lost war as soon as possible.

The confrontation between the two elite groups has escalated into a cold civil war of the elites, and who wins will determine the future of the Russian state and its degree of participation in the inevitable reorganization of the world. In fact, at stake is the question of Russia's sovereignty, whether it is able to defend its identity and independent path of development, or is it ready to disappear as a civilization and dissolve in the Western community.

The Need for Russia's Sovereignization


It should be emphasized that the sovereignty of the state is an absolute value and, in addition to technological, military, economic and political sovereignty, it primarily implies the spiritual (conceptual) sovereignty of a society that reproduces a passionate elite capable of organizing a mental war with the enemy.

The Soviet elite of the 80s did not consider sovereignty an absolute value and sought to integrate into Western civilization, while discrediting Soviet (Russian) civilization. The Russian elite of the 90s set as its main task not the preservation, but the destruction of Russia's sovereignty, and made a lot of progress in this matter. Moreover, in the colonial Constitution adopted then and still in effect, a ban on spiritual sovereignty was imposed (any ideology is prohibited), Russian society was cut off from spiritual development.

In the XNUMXs, first of all, Russian society (and only a part of the elite) came to an understanding of the vital need to restore sovereignty, but this did not become the prevailing idea. The special operation put the question point-blank - without comprehensive sovereignty, Russia as a state and civilization will not survive, for an all-out clash with the West, a sovereign national elite is needed, which does not yet exist. Now, a small elite group headed by the president is trying to implement the national strategy of sovereignty, but without the predominant part of the ruling class, which has set itself the goal of resisting the expansion of the West and developing its civilization, it is impossible to achieve spiritual sovereignty. This idea has already taken hold of the masses, but has not yet been accepted by most of the Russian elite.

Russian society has moved towards understanding the need to defend its sovereignty and gather Russian historical lands, and the main part of the ruling class, experts and officials are stubborn and do not want to become winners in the global battle with the West. The people literally by force on their hands bring them into the winners, but they do not want this victory, they resist and strive to escape. The time has come for the total replacement of the old elite, but there is no counter-elite yet, among the old elite there are only individual representatives with an alternative idea.

The two parts of the ruling class have different fates and different survival strategies. So the intra-elite struggle will inevitably intensify depending on the pace of the special operation and the results achieved. The issue of a possible truce, for which the compradors are fighting so hard in order to achieve political destabilization with a subsequent economic downturn and a surge in protest activity, will become fundamental. They seek to create an atmosphere in which the sovereignty of the country and the mental values ​​of society can be reformatted in the interests of the victorious West. This elite group feels its instability, and the people no longer consider them an elite.

With all this, the Russian leadership gives the West signals that it is not against a truce after the liberation of Donbass, despite the unpopularity of this idea among the masses. Apparently, an attempt to negotiate is not ruled out, although in this case, the denazification and demilitarization of Ukraine will have to be forgotten, moreover, a political crisis will immediately begin in Russia, and there will be no way to “sell” a truce as a victory.

In the current situation, the Russian sovereignty elite is between the possibility of a revolt of the compradors to remove it from power and a revolt of the masses after a lost victory, which will be considered stolen. The goals of the special operation will not be achieved and the sacrifices made will become in vain, and the compradors will receive a trump card for their revenge.

In this situation, neither Russia nor the West achieve their goals, and therefore there can be no talk of any peace in Ukraine. To achieve victory, Russia will have to really reformat the political system and completely clean up the elite. Peace in Ukraine is possible only with an unconditional military victory for Russia or the West, and the results of the NMD will determine not only the fate of Ukraine, but also the fate of Russia and the future world order.

        rather with the beginning of SVO,
        1000 companies closed out of 970
        house renovation tenders were 50 million steel 4 million
        the number of tenders for 50 million was 1000 became 4 million 10
        construction tenders for 1-2 billion was 1000 became 2
        only 1 Moscow metro hangs on the state defense order for wagons worth 50 billion rubles
        and so, yes - they snickered - closed - tightened their belts - and went to look for work
        and loans and interest on companies remained - until you go bankrupt you won’t get a job
        stalemate situation

        More in 2009 year in one of the interviews American political scientist Zbigniew Brzezinski (1928-2017)), who has long been one of the leading ideologues of US foreign policy, said the following words:

        "..Russia can have as many nuclear suitcases and nuclear buttons as you like, but since 500 billion dollars of the Russian elite are in our banks, you still figure it out: is this your elite or already ours? I do not see a single situation in which Russia will use its nuclear potential....“ bully
        Here one of the brightest confirmations of the words of Zbigniew Brzezinski. In an interview with Forbes magazine, Mikhail Fridman (a Russian entrepreneur, owner of Alfa Group, the largest financial and industrial association in Russia), said frankly:

        "Our projects in the West are a completely new life" repeat
        For information: Mikhail Fridman is a UK tax resident and an Israeli citizen. belay

        Another notable example. Chairman of the Board of Sberbank of Russia German Gref actually joined the anti-Russian sanctions of the West, refusing to open branches of the state (!) Sberbank in the Crimea and Sevastopol. bully

        Such a position of representatives of our "elite" is surprising even among Western politicians. Enough to remember the words бformer head of the IMF (Rothschild fund) Christine Lagarde, which stated:

        "If your largest state-owned bank does not recognize that Crimea is Russia, then why are you demanding this from us?"

          Sber in a place with G. Gref stole funds from my account. Confirmed by the savings and tax. I am trying to initiate a criminal case against G. Gref. I wrote a statement to the General Prosecutor's Office on January 10 or 11, 2022. There is still no answer. I am writing to Putin V.V.: "there is no answer from the prosecutor's office, corruption is rampant." Answer: "The President has no right to interfere with the actions of the prosecutor's office." I answer: “there is no need to interfere in the actions of the prosecutor’s office. There was a statement about the theft of funds. Putin V.V. calls people who stole pensioners’ funds scum. Where is the answer from the prosecutor’s office, the Constitution of the Russian Federation gives me this right. MY CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS, but protects as he himself says: "persons who stole the funds of pensioners are bastards" G. Gref. Remember once on KVN the phrase "serfs live better than their owners" was heard. Let me remind Putin V.V. about Article 2. and Article 3 Constitution of the Russian Federation.

      Have you noticed the change in the author's rhetoric?
      Previously, Yuri wondered where to install the banner of victory, and now:
      Peace in Ukraine is possible only with the unconditional military victory of Russia or the West, and the results of the NMD will determine not only the fate of Ukraine, but also the fate of Russia and the future world order.
      That is, it already allows options?! ...

        A strange article. Compradors and "sovereignizers" Compradors are traitors to the Motherland and spies with saboteurs, saboteurs. They only have an execution with Kolyma and have nothing to write about them. does nothing to eliminate traitors, but shuffles around in positions? Who always looks back at the West and bargains with it? Yes, damn it, "sovereignizers". Mat is not enough. Well, since the informer and enemy of the people Solzhenitsyn was written down in textbooks, then everything is clear with the "sovereignizers". So there will be a mess and irresponsibility in the country with the sale of everything and everything from Russia.

The result is the reality in which we live. And I do not see the explosive development of not only industries, but even individual enterprises (probably there are isolated ones). In order for a country to start developing, a lot of people (primarily in power) are needed who think about this, and not about some personal or group interests, and do things, not PR.

        Moreover, to our great regret, this is also characteristic of a significant number of "sovereignizers": where and with whom are the daughters of the first one now, how are things going with his "talking head", how the loving father of a Colombian University graduate constantly talks about the "necessity of the negotiation process", which with the kids of the former first...? And this list can be stretched to half a sheet only by those who are well-known ..., and there are still a bunch of little-known to the public, but very important in their fields "cogs" in politics and bureaucracy, as well as "grant-eaters" from academic science and media ... And most importantly, the differences between "sovereignizers" and "compradors" are often extremely situational and very conditional, and the "sovereignizers" are much more afraid of the revolt of the people and the army than the "comprador counter-revolution" ... See for yourself what has been done "sovereignizers" since 2014 in ensuring the actual economic, industrial and technological independence of Russia? But there are no results, everything is just blah blah blah ... And who was held accountable? A dozen small fry who grabbed "out of order" and did not share ... And what about the military and production failures in the NWO? And with the "negotiated betrayal"? Who bore the responsibility? And no one is unlikely to bear ...!

        It is strange at all to divide into two opposing factions. The president is a representative of the comprador elite, which he himself has shown and admitted more than once. Most likely, after the failure of the original plan, they found themselves in a stalemate, and it is impossible to quit and continue to be fraught, they also stepped on their business interests, so it was no longer possible to endure. One thing is clear, they certainly did not expect this.

        I am a former German officer and was born in Baden-Baden. Officially, about 2 Russian citizens and about 600 Ukrainian citizens live there. Both groups display wealth and live at a level that the vast majority of ordinary Germans and EU citizens also living in Baden-Baden cannot afford.
        For example, more than 2 years ago I had to buy a house for my family in neighboring France (Alsace, ex-Germany) because real estate prices in Baden-Baden were completely inflated by numerous Russian and Ukrainian millionaires.
        I fully agree with the author of the article. The preservation of Russia's sovereignty can only be achieved by reducing or eliminating the influence of "compradors" / "individualists" / "internationalists".

          Do you want an anti-Western elite? But they have the main, and in principle the only difference from the pro-Western one - they want to be the sole owners of the country, its population, resources, and categorically do not want to share all this with foreign competitors.

In fact, the authorities are going to give the green light to various "black realtors" and other crooks who will start taking away people's property. The result of this can be massive unrest and upheaval.

      About the coup, this is quite powerful! What forces? Well, okay, not our topic, high secret services are watching.
      But the question is why the hell are there no encirclements (the author Anzhik counted five possibilities) Here the elites somehow have nothing to do with it, just like scrap, everything rests on the fact that there are few troops, there are no actions of formations (about super BTG it’s not worth it no higher than tactics and to strategic actions of the BTG attack do not hold out).
      There are no breakthroughs for another simple and well-known reason, any lieutenant knows the width of the breakthrough front about it, but 1-2-3btg do not provide this width.
      I don’t know, maybe the charters have changed dramatically and now the battalion should advance five kilometers along the front, I don’t know, maybe someone will tell you.
      Well and then it is possible and about elites.
      Although, again, the elite used to be warriors - the military class, no matter how the buyers and sellers and other characters from different directions. Okay, let's see what's next.
      although I think among the buyers and sellers there are no cretins who believe that the West will no longer rob them.
      How not to treat the current type of elites, there are no clinical idiots there, nerds will not survive among such elites (we are silent about morality)

    Gref, Kudrin, Siluanov, Nabiullina remained in their places and continue their destructive activities. For example, the Accounts Chamber, headed by Kudrin, recently proposed to write off $330 billion frozen in the West from the National Welfare Fund. It was with their help that we lost our gold and foreign exchange reserves, and now they are offering to forget about them and give them to the West!


    There is another group in the ruling class, headed by the president, who defends the sovereignty of the Russian state and initiated the NVO.

    And who, excuse me, appointed the "first group" to the cleaning subdivision?
    To whom is the FSB, the Investigative Committee, the prosecutor's office subordinate?
    Who has not recognized the LDNR for 8 years?
    Who released the bearer of state secrets Chubais abroad?
    Who again nominated Nabiulina for the post of chairman of the Board of Directors of the Central Bank, after the loss of 300+ billion dollars?
    Who reported in the superbly conducted import substitution program?
    And so on ... there are no groups in power that have different goals, objectives, and use different methods to achieve. These are just two sides of the same coin that coexist beautifully together.

    why this is happening and what is holding back the Russian military-political leadership from making a decision to defeat the Armed Forces of Ukraine and aggravate relations with the West

    In my personal opinion, by and large, everything is quite simple and cynical. While the NWO is going on, energy prices are cosmic. Therefore, the proceeds from their sale over the hill more than cover the costs of the war and the government's obligations to the budget and all sorts of different national megaprojects. And the soldiers ... so the women still give birth.
    PS Maybe I'm wrong, and everything is much more complicated? But this NWO has too many oddities.

    Russia has already lost. My mother-in-law told me about this. Just don't laugh, the one who laughs last laughs. Most people have stereotypes that mothers-in-law only cook soups and look after their grandchildren. Mother-in-law worked at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of her country from 1982 to 1999. Prior to that, she worked in embassies in France and the United States. In short, the alignment is as follows: 1. In Kherson, a referendum-the majority for Ukraine. We'll have to return - the will of the people. 2. Donbass gets autonomy, naturally as part of Ukraine, like Quebec in Canada. Russian language is on a par with Ukrainian. 3. Crimea is still part of Russia. Nobody recognized him anyway. So that Russia does not lose face, then sluggish hostilities will be until the beginning of September. And then as I wrote above. By the way, back in November 1976 I was at a reception at the Soviet Embassy in Wellington. The embassies spoke respectfully of the United States, saying that the Union was 10-15 years behind. A day earlier, NASA began training flights of the Shuttle.

              Greetings. I served as an officer in the triangle of Germany, the Czechoslovak Republic and Austria during the "wild" border opening in late 1989. After that, I helped to disband parts of the GDR army. During this time, only a few officers of the GDR were transferred to the Bundeswehr. For example, as a company commander, I took a former officer of the GDR for retraining in our reconnaissance systems (radar, (-wheeled reconnaissance tank and Leopard 1A5). This person had previously been a very young lieutenant colonel and had already completed the first courses at the Frunze Academy. it was , by far the most trained officer I have ever met.In addition, he quickly gained popularity among our soldiers, because he agreed with everything and had great charisma.This clearly spoke of a good combination of training from the GDR and the USSR.

    Why the Russian elite opposes the special operation

    Because there is no Russian elite. Or rather, there is, but it is not represented in the structures of power.

    There is nothing wrong with a successful person having overseas property. But not the main one! Where it is held 2-3 months a year. You need to live in your own country, where the main real estate and assets should be. If you want to move to permanent residence or get a passport, for example, from England, there are no problems, but then get out of the civil service.
    But it should be the same for everyone. An example of the hypocritical Brilev, but there are hundreds of them.

    There is no consensus character of elites in the Russian Federation.
    The article confuses cause and effect.
    "There was no strategic turning point in the special operation, the enemy did not lose heart" - the SVO ended back in March, a protracted bloody war began, for which the elite and population of the Russian Federation did not prepare.
    Hence the panicky search for "traitors and the fifth column" in an attempt to absolve themselves of responsibility. Note that in 2014 there were people in the government for you and they did not prevent the return of Crimea.
    This is a normal reaction. So it was in 1905 and in 1917 and during the war with Finland and at the beginning of the Second World War.
    This is not our unique feature. All governments have done and will continue to do so.
    You just need to admit the obvious, get together and win. And talk of betrayal will end in an instant.
    And so, yes, it’s much more pleasant to say that “we were betrayed”, instead of
    "we did not calculate", "we did not purchase", "we did not prepare", "we did not equip", "we mastered and sawed" ...

    —- The author believes that the actions of Russia, including the NWO, are accompanied by some agreements between the antagonists: the "state" and "globalist" parts of the elite.

    —-And that the defeat of Russia is beneficial to the “globalists”.

    — No, the defeat of Russia (forbid and save!), is not beneficial to the “globalists”. They will be told, “Sign here and get out! Do not call…” - because traitors once are always traitors. Assets, etc. that are arrested by the West will not be returned. They won't let you into Londongrad. "Globalists" went into circulation.

    —-The author's model is an echo of Western ideas about the internal driving forces inside. The fact of the SVO is the victory of the “statists”. There was no consensus on the NWO. What are the leaders of Kudrin and Co.?? - they are "white collar", work for wages, do not own the means of production.

    —- The NWO is proceeding as it is, not because the “globalists” are slowing down, or because they are against mobilization ... It will be when the President and Shoigu understand that without mobilization, the tasks of the NWO are not feasible. It goes as it is because they don’t know how to do it differently and it doesn’t work out with the funds allocated for the NWO.

    —- The Russian Armed Forces are waging the FIRST serious war as a capitalist society (Syria is an expeditionary campaign ...) - NWO is a test of Russia's capabilities after 91 years.

    To achieve victory, Russia will have to really reformat the political system and completely clean up the elite.
    Yuri Mikhailovich, you were in Ukraine when the "Russian Spring" began, the entire southeast gave signals to the Kremlin, waiting for help from Russia. President Putin requested and received powers, troops were drawn to the border ...

    But, Didier Burkhalter arrived in Moscow, and the president's resolve dissipated like a morning mist. Many people remember the hysterical video on TV channels - "Putin send in the troops", where they explained to the people why this should not be done, that there would be a war with NATO, there would be sanctions and isolation of Russia. Our authorities did not recognize the referendums in the Donbass, which were no less legal than those in Crimea, after the coup d'état in Kyiv. Moreover, the farce with the elections in Ukraine is admitted, which was organized by those who sponsored the coup, the CIA and the US State Department. So the Nazi regime in Ukraine received legitimacy, despite the fact that the legitimate President Yanukovych and Prime Minister Azarov were with us.

    It was not necessary to send in troops, at least to recognize the LPR and DPR, telling the Kyiv junta that you are nobody and there is no way to call you, demanding an all-Ukrainian referendum. Alas, "Let them just try" remains the words behind which are the "Avenue of Angels" in Donetsk and the monstrous crime of the Nazis in Odessa. Our government chewed snot for 8 years when Russians were killed in the Donbass, having already obtained sanctions and the actual isolation of Russia.

    Now our military operation, which is stuck, where the initial statements about the complete denazification and demilitarization of Ukraine have been retouched, starting negotiations with Kyiv, starting to flirt with the West again.

    Do not deceive yourself, renegades and thieves and bandits legalized in power, who stuffed their pockets with bourgeois euros and dollars, are the lackeys of the West, and only create an appearance, puff out their cheeks, depicting some kind of resistance. If they want anything, then only to squeeze a fatter piece from their owners, in the robbery of Russia.
    They are not the enemies of the West, but the residual Soviet potential, primarily nuclear missiles. Russia is still the only country in the world that can destroy the United States. Don’t be afraid, the bad guys of their people, they would have surrendered everything to the West long ago, but the lessons with the failed Yeltsin make them pretend to butt so that their people and army don’t raise bayonets and pitchforks for outright betrayal, so they support, pull up the rating.

    We will not win against the traitors, we will not survive Russia without truly people's power and socialism, and we will not create any independent, "parallel capitalism" in Russia, with a planetary, world master of capitalism, represented by the Anglo-Saxons and transnational monopolies.
    A "multipolar world" without an independent socialist pole of power is a utopia.

    Well, it wouldn’t be too late, so, you see, with piece production, we may soon be left without a stock of anti-aircraft and operational-tactical missiles, while the West will continue to pump Ukraine with weapons and mercenaries. Will the bourgeois, actually henpecked authorities, decide to use nuclear weapons, as they threatened, or, in the name of peace, humanism and tolerance, will they surrender the country with nothing?

    Now the fate of Russia and the whole world is being decided, finally defeat the Anglo-Saxons, the world's ghouls, billionaires with transnational monopolies, dark times await our civilization.

    What a revolt of the masses, Compradors? no preconditions

    Nobody asked any masses.
    All the former elite that successfully optimized electronics, aircraft manufacturing, space, shipbuilding, export of everything abroad, and everything else - locally.
    For 7 years, they prepared a fry in money transfers so that they would not be cut off, and happily guessed the moment - the energy crisis.

    GDP pointed a finger, everyone nodded, it began. Many were repainted on the fly, like Medvedev and son.
    A minimum of people - they spat on careers, money, connections, dachas in elite places and went aside.
    He pokes the GDP with his finger - we won, we are finishing, - everyone also nods, and the media will explain everything as it should.
    As it was in Syria, for example

    And "the elite resists ..." - does anyone seriously think that she and her children will go in the forefront and with weapons in their hands? She is engaged in the usual thing that she can do under capitalism - she makes herself power and money.

    Do you feel the collapse of the economy? A sharp deterioration in the standard of living? What, no?? This is due to the measures taken by the above comrades.
    The Accounts Chamber, headed by Kudrin, recently proposed to write off $330 billion frozen in the West from the National Welfare Fund. It was with their help that we lost our gold and foreign exchange reserves, and now they are offering to forget about them and give them to the West!

    About 500 billion dollars of Western assets frozen in the Russian Federation, the author is modestly silent.
    It is difficult to say who and how convinced the military-political leadership of the possibility of a blitzkrieg in Ukraine and a quick change in the ruling regime, it was a mistake that led to the Istanbul talks.

    Did someone talk about blitzkrieg? Where? When? The operation of the Czechoslovak 1968 model failed (the one was against an ally, this one against the enemy, that is, as expected), combined arms operations began.
    The special operation has switched to a sluggish regime, in which there are no strategic victories, and the troops are slowly solving the tasks of liberating the territory.

    The trouble is that the army was built without looking back at churning out drones with high-precision and preoccupied with the rapid suppression of air defense through, incl. aviation, West. Now we are fighting, throwing iron artillery at the Petliurists, but, unlike past wars, saving the lives of our own soldiers.
    The confrontation between the two elite groups escalated into a cold civil war of the elites

    To achieve victory, Russia will have to really reformat the political system and completely clean up the elite.

As for me, I would note that our "elites" (the word for livestock breeding, by the way))) are very dependent on each other because one has real power, and the other has real money! The latter must be corrected and immediately! There are a lot of levers for this, one of them is the reprivatization of strategic enterprises, as well as compensation for the 340 billion stolen by the West at the expense of Western assets in our country!

    It doesn't happen. The formula is simple: power is money. And not vice versa. In other words, whoever the security forces are for, has power. Of two people, one has a revolver, the other has a wallet. Which of them will become the owner of both?

    Yes, there are no elites and stop using this term. In my understanding, the elite is a group of people superior to all others in the best sense, they are wiser, bolder, fairer and more experienced. More masculine and private. More than patriots of their country and servants of their people. And what the author writes about is a grouping of persons convicted of power who have achieved power in various illegal ways. And there are no contradictions and trends there. Everyone blows the same tune and feels great. Who is in power to remove the aforementioned Siluanov, Gref, Naebullina and other liberal shushara from their posts? That's right, the President of the Russian Federation. So everyone has an absolutely reasonable question: WHY hasn't he done this yet?? And many many more. Deniska Manturov, with a bang and a failure, flunked the entire import substitution program and showed in 2021 only an official income of 700 (!!) million rubles. instead of a bunk bed, a good pick and a quilted jacket for many long years in permafrost zones, he receives the chair of the prime minister from the hands of the president. So what else can you talk about? What are the elites? What movements and where? All of them there are smeared with one world and they all have absolutely one goal: power and money. But not the power of the country, its independence and not the prosperity of the people inhabiting it.

    For example, the Accounts Chamber, headed by Kudrin, recently proposed to write off $330 billion frozen in the West from the National Welfare Fund.

    In fact, “the control agency (Accounts Chamber) recommended to analyze the current structure of the NWF funds and make changes to it, providing for the exclusion of the share of funds placed in foreign currencies of the states that applied sanctions against Russia.” "Exclusion of a share from the fund" is not a "write-off" at all. Question: Is the reference to the proposal from the JV as "write-off" instead of "exclusion" unprofessional or deliberately misleading? In both cases, the price of the article drops to zero....
