Turkish President: Western leaders did not timely assess the situation with hostilities in Ukraine

The President of Turkey has sharply criticized his Western counterparts. According to Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the leaders of the Western countries did not timely assess the situation with the fighting on the territory of Ukraine.


Turkish President:

They themselves could not give an adequate assessment of what was happening, and now they are thinking what kind of winter it will be - cold or relatively warm in order to survive it.

According to the President of Turkey, a new era is coming, which may become an era of conflicts, but not a century of development and prosperity.

Erdogan noted that against this background, the rich are getting richer, and the poor are getting even poorer, which leads to a scaling of social inequality.

Erdogan:

This looks like a really bleak picture. Just look at inflation. There were no such indicators for 60 years. And even in Western countries, which have always stood at the pinnacle of economic success.

At the same time, the Turkish president did not specify that it was precisely by deepening inequality, unleashing wars and interfering in the internal affairs of other countries that the West managed to be on this very peak. While the Western powers were pursuing a colonial, essentially predatory, policy, people in dozens of countries around the world were barely making ends meet. Therefore, the words about the ended era of prosperity from Erdogan are somewhat sly. Billions of people on the planet - in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya, the countries of central and southern Africa, central Asia, South America - have problems with economic well-being for a long time. While they bathed in unsecured money, others were, and, unfortunately, still forced to look for something to feed themselves and their children with. Therefore, the term "an era of development and prosperity" is a cynical word for them. For the past decades, they have been living in endless conflicts, most of which were provoked precisely by the prosperous West.

    Yes, the collective West was not going to give an adequate assessment. They pursue their goals

      And how long ago did we see the light in Russia and began to give an adequate assessment? Not so much time has passed since we did not give a damn about the poor and destitute African and Asian peoples, how we sang along with the same collective West, supported sanctions against the DPRK, which, despite this, today has friendly feelings for us and offers help. And while the West brazenly, with contempt, did not spit in our face, we preferred to consider it a partner. They understood, of course, that this was far from being the case, but they were afraid to admit it to themselves.

        We saw the light for a long time, but in order to give an adequate assessment, we must firmly stand on our feet. But this happened not so long ago.

          Very rare people do not give a damn about what is happening somewhere far away, and they will not be affected.
          In words, yes, they can sympathize. But as soon as they are asked to spend their time or money for the benefit of someone unfamiliar there, for nothing - most will show the fact.

          There are so few people indifferent to Russia's actions in the world because inflation and shortages will affect them all.
          And in Russia, too, people live, and not holy unmercenaries. The only thing is that since the times of the USSR there are more of those who are ready to sacrifice their own for the benefit of strangers. So in the USSR they tried to educate people.
          But the majority even now do not care how people live there in Ethiopia. And if you say to such that there are almost the same number of people as in Russia, and more than 10% below the poverty line, you will only shrug your shoulders condemningly.
          Although, if a deputy starts a campaign to transfer grain to save Ethiopia from starvation, the majority of the people will support the deputy, but only as long as they themselves have bread in the shops.

        You should have thought for yourself first. And then with the light hand of the "communists" the country was lowered to the level of the 3rd world. There was no time for feeding the countries of Africa. You had to feed yourself first.

        He understands trade. we bring him coal. grain. he resells it all. an example - a month ago, several Russian ships brought coal to Trabzon. then comes the Turkish bulk carrier. loads sold grew. an ember and takes him .. to proud Bulgaria! With this, we transported coal to Varna back in May, without Turkish mediation. And now--you have to pay for ambition. pay the same Turks.

      The Turks have always been our enemies. Even when there was no war between us. Relations between countries are purely mercantile and "friendship" does not smell here

        Were there enemies even under Ataturk? If it were not for Soviet Russia, Turkey, as a state, would not have existed at all, there would have been an English colony

          Political expediency. In defiance of the Entente, the Soviet government tried to establish relations with the countries that lost in the First World War, the same Germany and Turkey. But it quickly became clear that for the time being

    Judging by the panic among the car dealers, the owners of gas stations shamelessly fill up fuel and ask Russia to repeat it for an encore in the evening

    Well, no, I don't trust Erdogan
    Even spit in the face, even if the eye
    Chamomile cannot grow in a field
    If the roots are all solid feather grass

    He is our neighbor, and in a neighborly way
    We need to lead a cautious "politician"
    After all, our Crimea is sideways on his, on Erdogan's heart
    His bull ran into him with a horn

    And all the politics of the east
    Appreciated the power, the power of gold and lead
    And on the tail brought me a magpie
    On the Crimea hangs there with Botox lip!

      Whatever Erdogan is, Turkey is our window in international trade. Erdogan is a real partner - you can do business with him when there is mutual benefit, but it's better not to turn your back.

    Obviously! I agree with you, Obama also spoke about "American exceptionalism." And it is so exceptional that even European prosperity, which Erdogan is talking about, is ready to be put on its altar.

    So America also has three allies: the idea of ​​"democracy", the army and the dollar. And this fact is becoming more and more obvious. So the G7, that is, America and its "sixes", mean less and less in this world. The only unpleasant thing is that the striped monkey with a nuclear grenade is getting angrier and more dangerous!

    It's funny to hear from a descendant of the Ottomans, for whom the slave trade and robbery for half a thousand years were the basis of the economy. wassat
    The "socialist" Erdogan, in his "westernized" country, has a rather large difference in income between the cities and the hinterland. And he does not save on military ambitions.

    Taipych also underestimated Russia, when his fighters filled up the drying over Syria, bullied at first, then sent compensation and apologies.
    He knows what he is talking about, he is already beaten, but for one beaten they give two not beaten, but sometimes three.
