    Such castling probably means something. Quite unexpectedly.

    To replace a 70-year-old official with a significantly younger one, no secret reasons are needed. At this age, you can work when everything is quiet, calm, measured, and not in an era of turbulence. And given that Xi himself is not a young man, he needs more energetic people in the team - there is, of course, a chance that the young and the early ones will sit up, but the total gerontocracy ends up removing the entire team, and harshly. And for the state, this does not end very well if the renewal is delayed.

      We see this in Biden, Trump, Nancy Pelosi. Madam Clinton and other prominent US politicians .. hiAnd also to the elders Soros. Rothschild, Rockefeller .. Now you, tell them personally! I'm sure you won't live long.

        First of all, pay attention to this phrase of mine:

        not the one you quoted. The great statesmen you have listed belong to countries and structures whose task at present is to maintain the status quo that suits them. They have a colossal accumulated margin of safety, and they do not yet consider what is happening in the world to be some kind of cataclysm. China is another matter, they need to gnaw out their own (what they rightfully consider their own), and for this, the peers of Soros and Biden are not very suitable, the psychology is not the same.

        So 73-year-old Netanyahu joined them. But the Finns elected the 37-year-old Sanna Marin in troubled times. Cool girl at parties lights up and then repents.

      A good diplomat is not one who puts someone "in their place", but one who will deal with anyone and in a way that will bring maximum benefit to his country, even if he himself will have a gag reflex from these "partners" overcome. The results of Mr. Lavrov's work are visible in the number of allies Russia has.

        Be so kind as to give an example when we had more allies? In the examples, do not forget to indicate the number of deployed Russian divisions and artillery batteries of a specific period of abundance of "allies"

          They might not have hinted at the fact that it is easier for the strong to acquire allies, but simply say, I immediately agree with you. But this idea can be further developed - if there are not enough real forces, then the employees of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs should ... slightly increase their level of diplomacy. You can afford to be a cowboy, having behind your back the divisions and batteries you mentioned, and even then - in a limited version, because then the Foreign Ministry is not needed, one MO is enough. And a good diplomat just reduces the need to use divisions, and in case of engagement, provides them with allies and reduces the number of opponents, and hence the number of opposing divisions. And what of this applies to the current Russian Foreign Ministry?

            Have you heard that Russia has a special become? And how should our diplomats be humiliated and cunning when we have the size of a continent, a country, a periodic table and a nuclear triad behind the back of the Foreign Ministry? Don't you think that the cunning of diplomats in such scenarios will seem stupid to any side? And what about the times of Shevardnadze and Kozyrev? Something they loved us only in words in the end, so we caved in by the whole Ministry of Foreign Affairs notably then, right? And how many allies have we acquired? As a result, in any negotiations, a country like ours must first be given a sheet listing the divisions and capabilities of the Strategic Missile Forces. That's all diplomacy. As before, the diplomats only showed on the map where Suvorov’s regiments are now located and the specifics and constructiveness began

        I agree with your phrase and as an example I want to cite S.Yu. Witte as an example:
        In 1905, the successful signing of the Treaty of Portsmouth with Japan made it possible to retain rights to the northern part of Sakhalin Island. Japan claimed the entire island, but received half. After these events, Witte received the title of count, and his contemporaries gave him the nickname "Count Polusakhalinsky".

      Based on this logic, did all the ambassadors of the USSR in Western countries need to be shot after a year of work?

    I read somewhere that Wang Yi consistently opposes a sharp rapprochement with Russia. And the Ambassador to the states has established himself as a steadfast and unbending conductor of the interests of the CCP in the states

    From such a comment, Ellochka would definitely go crazy! It should be so simple to explain all the ins and outs. This is in second place after boxer Emelianenko's answer to a question about R. Kadyrov's state of health. The athlete replied that he did not know anything about this.

    Not certainly in that way. Not all, but those who really lit up. Not a year later, but how the folder has accumulated. it is not necessary to shoot, especially since the law does not allow it. But to cut down the forest - it would be useful. Remind me where Kozyrev, Shevardnadze, Pankin and some other foreign ministers ended up? About ambassadors - there is a list of five sheets ...

      This is strange - our ambassadors in the West, it turns out, almost all became traitors (I trust your comment), and the ambassadors of Western countries were rarely noticed in promoting the ideas of socialism in their countries. And at the same time, socialism is the most advanced system in the history of our civilization (according to modern Russian historiography / mythology, cross out the unnecessary). Somewhere there is a discrepancy, don't you find it? Somehow, socialism did not have a very good situation with competitiveness - at the slightest opportunity to choose, its citizens of the USSR (who were traveling abroad) sent it away, it turns out, preferring capitalism that was rotten through and through and forever continuing to rot incessantly.
