Military Review

The Empire Strikes Back? ("Uwazam Rze", Poland)

The Empire Strikes Back? ("Uwazam Rze", Poland)Fear of revolution and the onset of Islam - these are the main factors that determine Russia's foreign policy today. Moscow is trying to increase its military presence wherever possible. Contrary to logic and in defiance of world powers, she tries her best to keep the regime in Damascus and is increasingly trying to play the first violin in the internal politics of Ukraine.


According to some Russian political analysts, the new presidential term of Vladimir Putin and the “militarization” of foreign policy that began with him are rather a defensive reaction and manifestation of phobias of the Russian leader than a real manifestation of the power and great-power position of the Kremlin. One of the leaders of the Russian opposition, chess grandmaster Garry Kasparov, predicted a few days ago in an interview with the Spanish newspaper El Pais that radical changes were coming in Putin’s Russia. “This is agony, the regime has become less flexible, it has less room for maneuver, it enters the last phase. I believe that in the next two to three years we will observe a massive explosion, which will cost the country very dearly, ”said Kasparov. However, before it comes to this, Russia can still pull the nerves of its neighbors.

“Unlike Dmitry Medvedev, Putin looks at all the events in the complex: for him, foreign policy is a single whole. He, like his predecessor, has already come to terms with the fact that Russia will not be a global power, and agreed to the role of a regional power, the scope of activity of which extends from Europe to the Pacific Ocean. However, unlike Medvedev, Putin does not refuse to influence events that occur beyond the narrow sphere of interests, since for him every element of the world order has a direct impact on the situation in Russia, ”said Russian political analyst Fyodor Lukyanov.

Syria, or how to protect the underbelly

For many years, the USSR was an influential player in the strategic space of the Middle East: it supported the Palestine Liberation Organization, almost 30 years actually contained the only "people's democracy" state on the Arabian Peninsula - the Democratic Republic of Yemen, maintained excellent relations with Iraq, which was ruled by an iron hand Saddam Hussein and the Baath party. Now, from the Kremlin’s once extensive sphere of influence, there remains only Syria, torn apart by civil war, and there the only Russian military base outside the former USSR is the port of Tartus on the Mediterranean Sea.

It is not surprising that Russia (in essence, completely alone) supports the regime of Bashar al-Assad and blocks in the UN Security Council the project of imposing sanctions against Damascus. The Kremlin sets three conditions: a change of power should occur only through elections, no state should arm the opposition or carry out an armed invasion of Syrian territory, and the international community should refrain from any kind of sanctions against the Syrian leadership.

According to experts, Russia fears the domino effect: the Kremlin perceives the struggle for the overthrow of the Syrian regime as another (after Tunisia, Libya and Egypt) stage of the “Arab spring”, the development of which could be the overthrow of the Ayatollah regime in Iran and new revolutions: “The soft underbelly of Russia,” that is, in the authoritarian countries of post-Soviet Central Asia.

A firm stance on Damascus may be an attempt to regain its previous position after Libya’s easy return: Russia's passive stance against Gaddafi under the presidency of Medvedev and the consent to the ban on flying over the country, which allowed the rebels to win, did not bring Moscow any benefit. Quite the contrary: the new authorities have ceased to reckon with Russia's economic interests, culminating in the gap of $ 4 billion in contracts for the supply of Russian weapons.

Political analyst Fyodor Lukyanov believes that Russia has already reached the ceiling in Syria. The regime in Damascus will fall sooner or later, so it's time to decide how to complete the game in order to extract more benefits from it. In exchange for contracts, the Kremlin can simply sell the Assad regime, or it can act as an intermediary guaranteeing the Syrian leader security if he leaves, and take part in the formation of the new leadership of Syria.

One way or another, the West will still have to fight for the Kremlin to change its position. Since the collapse of the USSR, Moscow has failed to achieve any success in the Middle East. The victory of the opposition and the overthrow of the regime in Damascus will open the way to new coups - already in Central Asia, and then Russia will face Islam one-on-one. If we add to this Putin's phobia in relation to revolutions, the conclusions become obvious.

Air fist over Central Asia

It was precisely fears of impending revolutions that could incite Moscow to embark on expanding the military structures of the Collective Security Treaty Organization established at the beginning of the 90s. This organism includes Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Tajikistan. Uzbekistan and Russia, for many years remained essentially dead. Now the Kremlin has suddenly decided to modernize the military structures of the union: it even speaks of creating an air "fist" that hangs over Central Asia and will defend local regimes from revolutions. “We are ready to fulfill our mission as a guarantor of stability in the Eurasian space,” says Vladimir Putin. “The creation of crisis response mechanisms within the Organization provides for the use of its potential in the event of internal crises in the territory of the member countries,” said Marat Tazhin, former secretary of the Security Council of Kazakhstan.

According to experts, the Kremlin drew conclusions from the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya, which showed that in the current armed conflicts the forces of one infantry cannot ensure victory. In favor of strengthening aviation structures speaks also the specificity of the region, the mountainous relief of which complicates movement on land.

Thus, Russia relied on a radical increase in air strike forces. fleet... If in 2011 the aviation received 20 new aircraft, then a year later - already 35, and in 2013 the allied forces will receive at least 40 Su-30 and Su-35 fighters, as well as Su-34 bombers. It is also planned to modernize several Russian long-range bombers and at least 140 fighters and attack aircraft. The first of them will go into service with the Moscow strike forces this year. Their main location will be the 999th Kant airbase on the territory of Kyrgyzstan. They will become the air fist that will come into action if a revolutionary wave from North Africa and the Middle East hits post-Soviet Central Asia.

The fifth column goes to the Dnieper

It is impossible to imagine Russia in the role of a regional power without control over Ukraine. Contrary to the conviction of some European politicians, this is not about creating an outpost for a hypothetical attack on Western countries. Even if one imagines that the Kremlin decided to make some kind of war with Europe, it would have had enough of the missiles aimed at Western targets, as well as the troops deployed in the Kaliningrad region and in the territory of Belarus. Ukraine is first and foremost a giant breadbasket capable (despite predatory farming methods) to feed Europe. Control over Ukrainian black soil is a guarantee of a leading position in the world in the face of the projected food crisis.

Not surprisingly, the Kremlin called its great success an agreement to base the Russian Black Sea Fleet in Sevastopol, which, wanting to appear before Moscow in a positive light, gave the team of Yanukovych to Putin shortly after his victory in the 2010 presidential election of the year. In late April of this year, Russia declared that it plans to increase its military presence in the Crimea. Soon the fleet will receive a new frigate, the Admiral Grigorovich. “It will be launched this year and will be the first in a series of six patrol ships of this project equipped with long-range missile systems,” said Vice Admiral Alexander Fedotenkov. In addition, six new submarines and seven combat boats will appear in the Black Sea.

However, the military guarantee for the position of the Kremlin in the region is not served by warships, but by the mechanized troops in Crimea, which are ready to start active operations at any moment. This kind of expeditionary corps, consisting of one and a half tens of thousands of soldiers, serves as a scarecrow for Ukrainian politicians who seriously think about rescuing the Crimea from Russian guardianship, as well as support for the political fifth column, the creation of which has already been officially announced on behalf of Moscow by Konstantin Zatulin (member "United Russia" and the director of the Institute of CIS countries, which the Ukrainian authorities after the Orange Revolution three times called persona non grata, accusing them of subversive activities). The new pro-Russian organization must become a competitor for the ruling Party of Regions. The Russian Movement began work on 14 in May in Odessa, discussing at the program conference “the issues of creating a union of Russia, Belarus and Ukraine - at least its eastern and southern regions”.

      There is one oddity on the Internet recently: trolling and similar articles no longer bring any effect, but rather the opposite, but the activity of their holders still continues. What is it? Inertia? Or just a commonplace habit. Most likely the degradation of Western ideology. With Iran, it was completely stolen (by the ears) in Syria, a protracted bloody massacre does not give the expected effect. Dee, with the appearance of three hundred there, makes all bets on the no-fly zone an illusion.
      And the article is an ordinary cheap Russophobe.

      I don’t know what hordes of Russian invaders stand ready near Kaliningrad, but in Belarus, in addition to the personnel serving the communication with the nuclear submarines, there are no Russian troops.
      If they are enough to capture Europe, then the company of the airborne forces will be enough for the rest of the world

    Yes, Russia is slowly modernizing its army. what is this about? State defense should be at a high level. this is clear to the baby. and the fact that modern models are coming into service cannot but rejoice (more would be).
    support for Syrian government forces is part of Russia's foreign policy. and the fact that the direction of this policy does not coincide with the policy of "general democrats" is their problem, not Russia. Russia defends its interests. what's so terrible about this? Note, it simply protects, but does not impose its policy by force (in contrast to the most democratized countries). and still, no matter what they say or write, Russia remains one of the world leaders! and all these Western "pugs" let them keep barking (barking means they are afraid)

    It is impossible to imagine Russia in the role of a regional power without control over Ukraine. Contrary to the conviction of some European politicians, this is not about creating an outpost for a hypothetical attack on Western countries. Even if one imagines that the Kremlin decided to make some kind of war with Europe, it would have had enough of the missiles aimed at Western targets, as well as the troops deployed in the Kaliningrad region and in the territory of Belarus. Ukraine is first and foremost a giant breadbasket capable (despite predatory farming methods) to feed Europe. Control over Ukrainian black soil is a guarantee of a leading position in the world in the face of the projected food crisis.

    This is precisely what Hitler reasoned when he spoke to his generals about the importance of Ukraine. Where did the author get these ideas about living space for geyropa? Not from the Kampf Mine?

    What can I say? The Psheks in their repertoire: the evil Sauron (with a black judo belt), sits in Mordor (there were towers, an obvious analogy to the Kremlin!), Dreams of enslaving the Universe. you won’t deceive them (Poles, that is)!

    Everything is everyday and predictable.
    Each time, while reading articles from the Polish press, I envy psychiatrists and psychoanalysts on psychology, not a dozen doctoral doctors can be defended. Not a nation, but one continuous inferiority complex.

    there are people who, looking at Black - will gnash their teeth and prove that it is white ... so this author thought ... Russia - a world tyrant - wants to capture Ukraine, fur divisions are ready to move at any moment !? where!? just .... and the Alkaida terrorists are Democrats - and Gaddafi and Assad are ghouls ...!? Iraq - they were directly ruled by despots - they are felts now - the heyday of democracy ... Putin behaves as if Russia is a world power !? - Author Michal Kozak (Michał Kozak) is a Pole, an unfinished man - Russia is a world power, and the state of Russia affects the whole world, but I won’t say anything about Poland ... because it’s not Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth .... like a pan - although the slave himself paid ....

    I read with pleasure. For some time I have been perceiving such Russophobic vysers as a Moskino bark. The reasoning that Russia will sell Assad for contracts is generally amusing. Please note that everyone is looking from their bell tower. Pshek cannot understand how it is to refuse to sell an ally. They always sold each other and bought in batches. So from the bottom I slammed a minus.

    My wise mother said about the Poles that they have a saying: "A boot, but Russian. Lapot, yes Polish." This means that they have a lot of arrogance, ambition. And for the soul, often, not a penny, not the soul itself. They took the help for granted, as a duty of local residents. Maybe she met too angry about the deportation of 39 from their pan-Polish one? But she is from the dispossessed Old Believers, but not angry. And among the Old Believers there were almost no kulaks, they themselves “plowed” at the level of MTZ-80, it was unfair to lose, it was something to get angry with.

    In such articles, there is a stubborn desire to expose Russia as an odious loner on the field of world politics and economics. In fact, Russia, together with China, does not allow breaking Syria, and this is all the same an alliance that no one in the world will bring down. I don’t even want to spread about the economy, the whole of Europe is in the hands of Russia through energy carriers (probably they are angry because of this and slander articles).

    One of the leaders of the Russian opposition, the chess grandmaster Garry Kasparov, predicted a few days ago in an interview with the Spanish newspaper El Pais that radical changes are coming in Putin's Russia. “This is agony, the regime has become less flexible, it has less room for maneuver, it is entering the last phase. I believe that in the next two to three years we will see a massive explosion, which will cost the country a lot, ”said Kasparov.

    even if we assume that this will suddenly happen, then the “explosion” will be “red-brown” and Mr. chess player will be among the first to be rolled into asphalt

    Russia can still pat the nerves of its neighbors.

    And not only nerves. Well, you don’t build a goat to us Michal Kozak, gently spread wheat - Russia is like a bone in your throat. It’s your business to sing along, and ours to bend.

    One of the leaders of the Russian opposition, the chess grandmaster Garry Kasparov, predicted a few days ago in an interview with the Spanish newspaper El Pais that radical changes are coming in Putin's Russia.

    This gentleman once played chess well. Then, under the influence of his "brothers" from Israel, he decided to retrain into politics. To begin with, Israeli colleagues ripped off the poor fellow as sticky, suggesting participation in dubious projects. Harry fled to the United States, where he cultivates bread in the field of the "leader" of the Russian opposition. Moreover, staff members stubbornly spread this rumor around the world. When I was in Germany in 2010, I was surprised to learn that Kasparov was the leader of our opposition ... Harry also occasionally had to maintain his image. He will come to the Russian Federation and bite the riot police, then he will swear at the GDP, and then again he goes to the USA quickly. In general, a difficult job ...

    for all the author’s subjectivity, he has one sensible thought about the role of Russia in Syria. indeed, it is quite possible to benefit from the current situation.
    I believe that Russia should support the proposal for the introduction of international forces in Syria and, moreover, try to lead the process to some extent, namely, agree on the division of Syria and determine "its" zone of influence - Tartus and Latakia, cad, part of the idlib, maybe something else. those. Alawite-Christian region. instead of supplying a futile war for free. In this way, Russia will be able to maintain its base in Tartus. get a completely independent small state without the "extra" Sunni population. and let the Turks take Aleppo and Kurds, Qatari and Saudi Homs and other semi-desert regions (for the construction of pipelines), let Israel take care of the Druze.

    What pathetic people in the West that form and launch political projects! After all, these are the Cossacks and they have power. Well, what is it: "is it rather a defensive reaction and the manifestation of phobias of the Russian leader"?
    As you know, there are two ways, two ways of behavior, when there is some kind of problem that needs to be solved. You can think over the problem and try to solve it. And you can go another way. You can falsify the facts, deceive the authorities, subordinates and an uninvited public, imagining yourself a powerful and powerful "solver of the problem." What is the difference?
    In the case of the first model, you need to have a variety of knowledge and a set of skills. You need to do a lot of work, and also come to terms with the fact that in the decision process there will be "roughness" - that is, new enemies will appear, negative consequences will arise (such as built many tanks - spent a lot of armor) for which they will criticize you.
    In the case of the second model, you need to be able to at least, and from knowledge you need only vile tricks, referred to in power circles as "practical psychology." The deceiver out of any situation comes out all in white, throwing the blame for all the mistakes and problems on others, those stupid and non-modern mugs who really work. That is, the approach to any task, from fashion to defense, they have in the field of purely psychological.
    So in the article - that phobia, another fear, the third greed ... Undoubtedly, if you don’t get into the hatch, you won’t get shit. That's just ... They are ALL there! All these miserable authorities are cunning hunters! Well, as a result, nothing is really done. Only money is transferred from accounts to disappear ... Europe crumbles into rotten pieces. SGA is still holding, but ... and these combinators only know how to deceive each other! They succeeded in a brilliant operation - they drove out the workers in general. No one now shines with his clumsy competence. What about work? Everything is in order with the work - the reports are more beautiful than ever. In my opinion, the chances of the West in its current form are negligible. All this cunning kingdom of psychologists is doomed ...
