Geopolitical mosaic: the EU believes that Russia should stop fearing the Balts and reconcile with Poland, and the Americans were afraid that twenty Russians would take over the United States


The release of Homs is near. In Syria, completing the liberation of Homs from terrorist groups. As one of the officers involved in the military operation in the Khalidia region reported, the centers of resistance that remain on the northern outskirts of the city will be eliminated "within two days," "Vesti" with reference to ITAR-TASS.

In the mosque of Khaled ibn al-Walid was the main base of the militants and a large warehouse with weapons. Now Syrian soldiers hoisted a national flag over it.

Homs is the third largest city of Syria, located in 165 km from Damascus. The battle for him was of great importance for both parties. The opposition called the city "revolutionary capital."

Syrian expert Hassan al-Hassan called the release of Homs "a strategic success." He believes that this victory of the army may affect the whole course of the further military campaign.

We wish success to the Syrian government army!

West, get ready for the victory of Assad! Con Cofflin ("The Telegraph"; source of translation - Mixednews.ru) notes that Assad wins civil war. Proof of this is the fact that hundreds of former insurgents lay down their arms and accept the government’s offer of amnesty.

The combination of disagreements in the ranks of the rebels, the declaration by Al-Qaeda of the war of the Syrian Free Army, and the tangible support that Assad receives from Iran and Russia — all this means that the incentive of the rebels to fight is lost, the journalist writes.

Finally, the possibility of high-tech Western weapons falling into the hands of Islamic militants was enough to dissuade the governments of most Western countries from following a similar course.

As a result, the opposition accused the West of betrayal, and the Assad government is getting stronger every day. Announcement of the victory by Assad is only a matter of time, writes a British columnist.

The victory of Assad will weaken the position in the world of Cameron and Obama, and at the same time strengthen the influence of Iran and Russia: these countries are not bowed to international pressure.

Against such an almost triumphal background, the oppositionists also suddenly announced their victories.

Victories on YouTube. Syrian "rebels" claim to have gained the upper hand over army positions in the north and south of the country. They launched an offensive, during which 51 soldiers of the Syrian regular army were allegedly executed.

Recently, the rebels have focused on taking isolated outposts of the army, mainly in rural areas, reports mignews.co.il.

A video posted on YouTube on Wednesday by the rebel group “Supporters of the Islamic Caliphate” shows a pile of bodies of young people heaped up against a wall. There are about thirty of them. The wall is spattered with blood. The man behind the scenes says that "dozens of Assad soldiers were killed." Shots were taken in the northern city of Khan al-Assal.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights claims that in the area of ​​this city on Monday and Tuesday, insurgents killed about 150 soldiers, including 51 soldiers and officers who were executed.

Weapons! Weapons! The Syrian opposition urged the United States as soon as possible to begin supplying arms to opponents of the Assad regime, reports newsru.co.il.

NKRS said that the United States should start arms supplies as soon as possible so that the fighters of the armed opposition groups could protect themselves and civilians, reports CNN. Representatives of the opposition leadership met with John Kerry and discussed the possible supply of weapons.

Jihad tourists from Russia. The number of Russians fighting on the side of the rebels in Syria, in the hundreds. Those who want to fight in the ranks of supporters "for the purity of Islam" and the creation of the "Syrian Emirate" undergo training (SAS instruction) in the training camps for militants in the western regions of Syria and Libya. About it IA "REGNUM" told the director of the Center for Islamic Studies of the North Caucasus, Ruslan Gereyev.

Missionaries are funding and sending mercenaries from the North Caucasus to the war in Syria, as well as from the North Caucasus diasporas in other regions of Russia. For travel to Syria from Dagestan, transit routes through Adjara, Azerbaijan, and Turkey are used.

Comrade Gereyev said: “The most active and qualified part among the Dagestani, Ingush, Chechens and people from other republics of the North Caucasus fighting in Syria are representatives of various radical“ Jamaats ”. These are people who took part in military campaigns in Chechnya, Abkhazia, South Ossetia, as well as people who are on the federal wanted list for serious and especially serious crimes that are not subject to amnesty in the Russian Federation. ”

The sites of radical Muslims, as well as in the Western media, openly discuss the market of living military force, Gereyev notes, where shadow schemes operate, and where "tens and hundreds of our compatriots are represented as mercenaries who are just waiting for a chance to go to other wars.

The question is, the expert says, what measures the state will take, because “upon return, these people trained in armed conflict will conduct similar recruitment work in our country, call for the overthrow of constitutional authority and the establishment of an Islamic caliphate.”

Usman Ferzauli, one of the leaders of Chechen separatists in exile, said that in Syria, more than 100 Chechens recruited by Wahhabis are participating on the opposition’s side, reports newsru.co.il with reference to Kommersant.

Ferzauli calls himself the “Foreign Minister of Ichkeria”. He states that Doku Umarov calls on Chechens to go to war in Syria. His brother Isa Umarov directly recruits fighters.

On July 26, it became known that a local resident who had returned to Russia from Syria was detained in the village of Novosasitli of the Khasavyurt district. This man fought there against the army of Assad. The reason for the return was injured.

Negotiations between Israel and Palestine. The US authorities said that the delegations of Israel and the Palestinians will meet on Monday and Tuesday in Washington to resume a peaceful dialogue after a three-year hiatus. Reports about it RIA News" with reference to the Reuters agency.

State Department spokesman Jen Psaki officially stated: “Today, US Secretary of State John Kerry held talks with the head of the Palestinian National Authority, Mahmoud Abbas, and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and personally invited them to send high-level delegations to Washington for the official resumption of direct negotiations on final status.”

She clarified that meetings are scheduled for Monday evening and Tuesday.

Egyptian path to democracy. The attitude of the world community to the new government of Egypt and the army may not change for the better after the riots in Cairo and other cities on the night of July July 27. The Muslim Brotherhood claims that the number of victims has already reached 200, and the number of injured is thousands. This was told by Andrei Fedyashin ("Voice of Russia").

Cairo physicians working in field hospitals claim that most people are injured or shot in the chest and face. This means that they were aimed fire.

Regarding the outbreak of violence in Egypt, the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon expressed concern. He stated that "violence cannot be an alternative to a political solution." Approximately the same calls were made by the EU leadership. US Secretary of State John Kerry and US Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel phoned to the leadership of Egypt and the command of the army and urged to prevent the recurrence of bloody clashes. The US Embassy suspended work on Sunday.

The head of the World Union of Muslim Theologians, Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, demanded that the UN and the Arab League support the overthrown President Mursi. The Sunni cleric called for the Muslims of the world to “go to Egypt and accept the martyr’s death there in the name of the Muslim Brotherhood.”

As the president of the Russian Institute of the Middle East, Yevgeny Satanovsky, believes, in Egypt we must wait for a complete ban on the activities of radical parties: otherwise the new government will not last long. The expert says: “We are now talking about whether the military and the groups that joined them will retain power or not. In the conditions of the political activity of the Islamists on the permitted legal field, they (the military) will certainly not be able to do this. ”

The Turkish embassy in Somalia is blown up. 27 July suicide bomber detonated an explosive device in front of the Turkish Embassy in Mogadishu, reports "Lenta.ru" with reference to France-Presse.

It clarifies the "Reuters", as a result of the accident killed two people, not counting the suicide bomber. Nine people, including the Turkish police guarding the building, were injured.

Responsibility for the action was taken by the Al-Shabab movement close to Al-Qaeda, which is displeased with the Turkish support of the secular Somali government.

In the attack on the embassy participated three. Two during the shootout eliminated the guards. A third terrorist hit a car filled with explosives at the gate of the building where the embassy staff lived, and activated an explosive device.

In Italy, do not appreciate the food. Cecile Chienge, the first black minister in Italy, was thrown into bananas at a meeting of the Democratic Party. The head of the department for integration has previously caused outrage among right-wing groups that led a campaign to simplify the procedure for migrants to acquire Italian citizenship, reports RBC with reference to Reuters.

None of the abandoned bananas reached the goal. Ms. Kiengé commented on what happened in her Twitter account: she called the incident “sad” and said that it was a vain transfer of food during the economic crisis.

S. Kieng and earlier was the victim of a racist scandal. In July, the senator from the right party "Northern League" Roberto Calderoni compared it with an orangutan.

House arrest is not an option for Berlusconi. Silvio Berlusconi is ready to go to jail if he fails to appeal a conviction for tax evasion. In an interview with Libero, the politician said that he would not exercise the right to a reduced penalty in the form of house arrest or community service, "Lenta.ru".

“I’m almost seventy-eight years old, and I’d get the right to house arrest,” said the former prime minister, who was sentenced to four years in prison for tax fraud in his company Mediaset. “But if I’m found guilty, if they take that responsibility, I’ll go to jail.”

Berlusconi also said that he would not go into “exile,” as Bettino Craxi, the former prime minister of socialism who left Italy because of the threat of arrest for corruption, did.

Berlusconi’s appeal in the Mediaset case will be considered by the Italian Supreme Court tomorrow.

Ukrainian difficult choice. The representative of Ukraine in the Eurasian Economic Commission Viktor Suslov said the need to deepen cooperation between Ukraine and the countries of the Customs Union, reports Interfax-Ukraine.

"We need to intensify work with the Eurasian Economic Commission, interaction with the authorities of the CU countries and I am sure that we should not wait for November, when either the Association Agreement with the EU is signed, or not, or it is later ratified, whether or not, ”V. Suslov said on Saturday at the international conference“ Orthodox Slavic Values ​​are the Basis of Ukraine’s Civilizational Choice, ”organized by the Ukrainian Choice public movement.

According to him, the Ukrainian side should not wait for further development of the situation in relations with the European Union, but to deepen cooperation with the CU. According to the representative of Ukraine in the EEC, Kiev should join those CU agreements that are economically beneficial for the Ukrainian side.

Suslov said: “As for the statements of European politicians about the incompatibility of developing cooperation with the CU and the prospects for membership in the FTA (with the European Union), I think it is appropriate to refer to article 39 of the draft Association Agreement between Ukraine and the EU, which certainly gives Ukraine’s right to be a member of other customs unions, other FTAs ​​and other border trade agreements. ”

Lukashenko caught a traitor. In Belarus, an employee of local special services, who worked for foreign countries, was detained. About this, as transmits "Lenta.ru" referring to the BelTA, said Alexander Lukashenko.

“What is it called? From our point of view, betrayal, ”comrade Lukashenko summarized.

The head of state reported on the arrest of an employee of the Belarusian special services, commenting on the situation with Edward Snowden. “I wouldn’t strain myself especially on the Russians’ place, but would give him political asylum, ”Lukashenka said in connection with this, adding that America“ sheltered hundreds of Russian traitors. ”

Ivanishvili would be “nice" if he was advised by Condoleezza Rice. The Prime Minister of Georgia denied that Condoleezza Rice would be his adviser, noting, however, that he would be grateful for that. With the appropriate statement, as reported "Lenta.ru" With reference to Georgia-Online, the head of government delivered a speech on July 25.

“I would be pleased if a politician like Condoleezza Rice would be my advisor. I would welcome this, ”Mr. Ivanishvili said.

Lenta reminds that the information that the former US Secretary of State could become a consultant to the Georgian prime minister was distributed by the Izvestia newspaper. According to this publication, Rice offered assistance to the government of Georgia so that the new authorities "better understand the Washington situation."

“The initiative to use her experience and knowledge came from Rice herself,” Chairman of the Georgian Parliamentary Committee on Foreign Relations Tedo Japaridze told Izvestia. The other day, he, as part of the Georgian delegation, met with Rice at Stanford University, where she works as a professor of political science.

(...) When you read this, of course, we are preparing for the saddest scenario. ”

Russians, do not be afraid of the Baltic states and make peace with Poland. The incompleteness of the process of historical reconciliation between Russia and the Baltic countries with Poland prevents the conclusion of a Russia-EU agreement on a visa-free regime, said the head of the European Socio-Economic Committee, Henri Maloss.

“Some members of the European Union - you understand very well who we are talking about - demonstrate a lack of goodwill on this issue. The Russian government also bears its share of responsibility, ” Rosbalt the words of Malossa, which he said in response to a question about the reason for the lack of progress in the negotiations on a visa-free regime.

“After all, why is there such a confrontation, such an anti-Russian stir in the political elites in the Baltic countries, Poland? Because the process of reconciliation between nations is not finished, ”Mr. Maloss believes.

“The reconciliation process will not cost anything, and Russia has nothing to fear from Lithuania, Estonia, and Latvia. Make an effort, step towards reconciliation. Admit the mistakes of the Soviet Union, because these are not the mistakes of modern Russia, ”recommended the President of the EEC.

The Khodorkovsky case as a tactical victory of the Kremlin. The Wall Street Journal has published an article entitled "The tactical victory of the Kremlin." The victory refers to the decision of the European Court of Human Rights, which on Thursday ruled that Russia had legal grounds to prosecute Mikhail Khodorkovsky and Platon Lebedev, the channel said "RT".

True, the judges noted "a number of gross violations of the right to a fair trial" and the attacks by the authorities on defense lawyers.

The trial of Khodorkovsky was a turning point in the Putin era, according to the American edition.

The review of Western newspapers from "Foreign Press".

The ECHR delivered a verdict on the first Khodorkovsky case, reports The Financial Times. The court found that within the framework of the trial against the former Russian oil magnate 2004-2005, the authorities harassed Khodorkovsky’s lawyers and did not attach evidence of some experts and audit data to the case.

“But the court rejected the central statement of two Yukos leaders that the Russian court restricted their freedom for a purpose different from the observance of the Criminal Code, in other words, that the case was politically motivated,” said Neil Buckley. The court ruling states that the charges against Khodorkovsky and his business partner Platon Lebedev had a “sound grain”.

This court decision allowed both parties to proclaim at least a partial victory, the correspondent believes, citing comments.

Lyudmila Alekseeva, the head of the Moscow Helsinki Group, said: “I would say that the decision is not only soft, but also cowardly. If they did not see the political component in this process, then they have something with a vision. ”

One of Khodorkovsky’s attorneys, Karina Moskalenko, called the standards for evidence, necessary for the ECHR to recognize the case as politically motivated, “prohibitively high”, but stressed that the court’s decision was “of paramount importance”.

“The Putin regime prefers radicals and punishes the moderates, hoping that this will prevent the resistance of intellectuals. But Putin will not be able to hold anyone back. Moreover, we will have to restrain ourselves in order not to follow in the footsteps of the radicals, ”said Mikhail Khodorkovsky in April 2012, addressing Adam Michnik, a well-known Polish dissident of 1970-1980. The American magazine New Republic publishes letters that Michnik and Khodorkovsky exchanged in 2012-2013.

Mikhnik compares Khodorkovsky with his friend Vaclav Havel, and Khodorkovsky touches upon the problem of Russia's democratic development. “I believe that our nation has the right to a decent life. Alas, the right as such is not enough - it must be achieved. We need to "get out of the trenches." The events of winter and summer of 2011-2012 proved that in today's Russia there are people who want it, ”wrote Khodorkovsky in August of 2012.

Khodorkovsky also sees another problem: Western democracy is “lame”, many have questioned the universality of the democratic model, citing the successes of China, Singapore and other authoritarian regimes.

Michnik suspects that Putinism is “a way to adapt the Chinese model to Russian realities.” Putin's “sovereign democracy” means that Putin can imprison Khodorkovsky or Magnitsky, and neither Brussels nor The Hague will intervene.

The former dissident agrees with Khodorkovsky that Putin is the ideal figure of a stagnant leader. “You also wrote that you once looked like him, but then you matured,” Michnik addresses Khodorkovsky. He draws parallels with Poland: in his opinion, Walesa was a bit like Yeltsin, and Putin was like Yaroslav Kaczynski.

What did the peacemakers. The source of the cholera epidemic in Haiti could be the UN peacekeepers. This conclusion was made by an international group of researchers studying the causes of the disease, which thousands of people were victims of in the 2010 year, the channel "RT" with reference to the BBC.

This conclusion can be a serious argument in favor of a lawsuit filed in the US court against the UN by relatives of the victims of the epidemic. The amount of compensation required reaches several billion dollars.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention stated that, according to DNA analysis, cholera vibrio strains in Haiti coincide with South Asian strains. The medical statement has increased the confidence that the infection was carried by Nepalese soldiers. This was also indicated by the fact that the majority of cases of infection were observed in the lower reaches of the Artibonite River, on one of whose tributaries the UN base was located.

“RT” recalls that units of the international peacekeeping forces arrived in Haiti to assist in the aftermath of the earthquake that occurred on the island 12 in January 2010 year.

Bombs at the eighth wonder of the world. US Navy will begin searching for four unloaded bombs in the Great Barrier Reef, reports "Russian newspaper" with reference to Interfax.

On July 15, two Harrier attack aircraft dropped bombs during exercise because they had little fuel left.

The leadership of the US Navy reported that "the US armed forces are aware of all the responsibility for the consequences of the exercises." To this, the Americans added that they “pledge to promptly eliminate all the adverse effects of the incident.”

Airships will appear over America. America lives with the knowledge that it can be attacked at any time. The military will continuously improve the country's defense systems. The turn of Washington has come: he will receive defense airships, writes Gearmix.ru with reference to gizmodo.com.

The JLENS system from Raytheon is not just airships. These are flying spy-sized fortresses the size of a house. They can identify threats that even the most powerful ground-based radars will not notice. Airships can track flying cruise missiles, ships laying mines, armed drones, and in general, “virtually anything, approaching from a distance of several hundred kilometers in a field of 360 degrees, and react to it in real time.” The system can be airborne for up to 30 days without the need for refueling or maintenance.

Airships have been successfully tested in Utah and are on their way to Washington.

In 2014, the Department of Defense will deploy a pair of JLENS airships over Washington County to monitor the US capital. From a height of three thousand meters above ground, JLENS will see the terrain to the Atlantic Ocean.

Last visit to the "Lighthouse". At the end of July, the final visit of the American observers to the Mayak chemical plant under the HEU-LEU agreement will take place, the press service of the governor of the Chelyabinsk region said.

As transmits correspondent ITAR-TASS Evgeny TkachenkoDuring the visit, the US observers will summarize the work carried out at the plant within the framework of the “Agreement between the Russian Government and the US Government on the use of highly enriched uranium extracted from nuclear weapons” signed in February of 1993 of the year and calculated for 20 years.

This program provides for the dilution of highly enriched weapons-grade uranium to the level of low-enriched for subsequent use as fuel in the US power nuclear reactors. The volume of HEU to be processed is 500 metric tons.

The American Attorney General decided not to torture Snowden. On July 26, US Attorney General Eric Holder sent a letter to his Russian colleagues. According to ABC News, Holder promised that the United States would not torture Edward Snowden and would not seek the death penalty for him.

“As we understood from the press reports, Mr. Snowden applied for temporary asylum in Russia on the grounds that if he was returned to the United States, he would be tortured and threatened with the death penalty,” he said. "InoTV" text of the letter. “These statements are completely unfounded.”

Regarding the death penalty, Holder indicated that charges of espionage “do not provide for such an opportunity.” According to him, the States "will not seek the death penalty, even if Mr. Snowden will face new charges involving the death penalty."

Snowden is considering employment in Russia. Lawyer Anatoly Kucherena, helping Snowden, said that an American remains in the Sheremetyevo transit zone. “He intends to stay in Russia, intends to study the culture of Russia, and he would like to look at Russia,” the lawyer said. He also added that Snowden intends to look for work in the country, reports "RT".

Snowden has already started learning Russian. “He spoke with me a few words and phrases in Russian today. He said: “Hello”, “Bye-bye” and something else, ”said Kucherena.

The lawyer answered journalists' questions about how the American lived for about a month at the airport. According to Kucherena, he didn’t have any financial difficulties: “There’s not much money, but for the first time there’s enough.”

“As for life, his situation is more or less normal,” the lawyer added. “In the shirt in which he flew in, and in the jeans in which he flew in, this is how he comes all the time.” Anatoly Kucherena brought Snowden new clothes and presented him with several books: “Crime and Punishment” of Dostoevsky and Chekhov's works.

They will stop drinking Stolichnaya. As Denis Puzyrev writes (RBC Daily), the American LGBT organization “Queer Nation” distributed a manifesto, in which it called on its supporters and all those who share a tolerant attitude towards sexual minorities to boycott Russian vodka.

Here is a piece of text:

“In the light of the latest attacks by Putin’s regime on the LGBT community, Queer Nation calls for a global boycott of Russian vodka brands, including Russian Standard and Stolichnaya. Tell the boycott to all your familiar club promoters, DJs, cafe owners, so that they exclude Russian vodka brands from the menu of their establishments. It's time to answer Russia. "


LGBT activists urged consumers around the world to stop buying Russian vodka. “We must respond to any attempt to use violence against members of the LGBT community around the world,” said in a statement to the Queer Nation.

Queer Nation was established in New York in 1990. The organization has offices in many major US cities.

As Denis Puzyrev notes, “Queer Nation” was able to spoil the business of the restaurant chain “Cracker Barrel”, whose owners allowed homophobic and racist statements. The result: a massive boycott of restaurants, constant protests at their doors, fines that exceeded 2 million.

The author of the material reminds that homosexuals drink more and more often consumers with traditional orientation. According to a study conducted by scientists at the University of San Jose, 75% of homosexuals in the US regularly consume alcoholic beverages (among people with heterosexual orientation, such 59%). Vodka in the United States is traditionally popular among homosexuals.

The first LGBT promotion strategy used was the Swedish brand Absolut (1981 year). In 2006, Stolichnaya Vodka (produced by Yuri Shefler’s SPI Group) followed the path of gay marketing. The brand supported gay festivals and moved to gay bars. On the eve of the legalization of same-sex marriage in the state of New York, a map of New York appeared on the official website of vodka: bars were marked there, where each visitor was poured a glass of vodka at the entrance - “for the health of the young”.

Rustam Tariko’s “Russian Standard” also uses gay practices. This vodka is a partner of gay parties that are held under the motto “Russian Standard vodka represents ...”

Alec Lun («The Guardian», Great Britain; source of translation - "InoSMI") writes that in the world there is nothing "more Russian than vodka." Therefore, it seemed quite reasonable for representatives of sexual minorities to target a famous drink.

American writer Dan Savage, who became famous for his online campaign against homophobic senator Rick Santorum, called for a boycott of vodka to draw public attention to the new Russian law that allows police to arrest tourists and foreigners on the basis of suspicion of homosexuality or its propaganda. Here is what Savage wrote in his blog:

"To express our solidarity with Russian homosexuals and their supporters and to help attract the attention of the international community to the persecution of gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transsexuals in the increasingly fascist Russia of Vladimir Putin, give up Russian vodka."


He highlighted the Stolichnaya and Russian Standard brands and created the #DumpStoli hashtag for his campaign, which was then supported by Queer Nation and the Russian-American group Rusa LGBT.

Savage believes that the harassment of people of non-traditional sexual orientation continue to gain momentum in Russia.

According to the Chicago newspaper Windy City Times, six bars in Chicago have already announced that they will stop selling Russian products, and the owners of another bar have said that they will no longer sell Stolichnaya.

Obviously, the journalist writes, the campaign managed to achieve immediate results: after all, Stolichnaya’s producers criticized the restriction of Russian rights to gay and lesbian rights.

In an open letter, Val Mendeleev, the head of the SPI Group, condemned the Russian government for “restricting the rights of the LGBT community” and also noted that the Russian government does not control the production of this vodka: it is made in Latvia.

On the Facebook page, the company has already published a banner: “Stolichnaya Premium Vodka supports the international LGBT community in the fight against the actions and position of the Russian government.”

The article notes that in the 2000s, after attempts by the Russian authorities to regain the brand, SPI Group (Luxembourg) began producing Stolichnaya vodka in Latvia using Russian ingredients. At the same time, the Russian state-owned company Soyuzplodoimport produces almost the same vodka in Russia.

“They all messed up. Stolichnaya is not Russian vodka, ”said lawyer Nikolai Alekseev, head of the organizing committee of the Moscow gay parade.

Thus, let us add, the new American LGBT campaign will hit Latvia.

"Giant offensive stereotype." "The perfect lie, full of fraud история Russia and its methods of war ", - such reviews of the game" Company of Heroes 2 "overwhelmed the forums for gamers, lowering the rating of the game to almost the minimum. A flurry of comments fell down after a review of this game was made by the user Bad Comedian, notes "InoTV" with reference to the Polygon website.

According to critics, the developers selectively approached the development of scenarios. They took the facts of unprecedented barbarism and rejected what is considered to be a noble sacrifice in Russia — the one that played a far greater role in saving the world from Nazism than the efforts of Western troops led by the Americans. The game focuses on the brutality of the generals of the Red Army, repression, etc. “The game uses almost all the myths about Russia: the Gulag, the army without weapons, the Russians, shooting their backs. By the third mission, I was seriously hoping to see the soldiers riding on bears, - quotes Polygon game developer Sergei Galyonkin. - History creates an image of the army, prone to self-destruction. In this mission, the Soviet people killed more of "their" than enemies. Nobody does that, not even the Russians. It’s just pointless. ”

“This is, roughly speaking, one giant offensive stereotype. Events on the Eastern Front are probably the darkest four years in the history of mankind. There is nothing wrong with trying to restore them. It is bad to reduce them to a simplified stereotype about the struggle of the German “superhuman” Wehrmacht and the SS against the Soviet hordes. There was no such thing that one rifle was for two, except for cases of complete collapse with logistics, ”says the Pole Lukash Markevich.

But the developer of the game - the company "Relic" - argues that the game reflects the historical realities. Project leader Quinn Duffy said that the campaign was based on works by Vasily Grossman, who spent three years on the front lines and had “unrivaled access to command on various fronts”. According to Duffy, his novel "serves to illustrate the unprecedented courage among the soldiers on the front line, but also cruelty, petty disputes, rivalry and vanity, which led to clashes at all levels of the military hierarchy."

In the opinion of David Stone, a professor of Kansas State University in military history with a specialization in the USSR, sending soldiers into battle without rifles is “more likely from the history of Russia in World War I, and not the USSR in World War II”.

"Russians are coming!" "Russians are coming! Russians are coming! - writes journalist Frank Mazzaglia in his column in the American newspaper “Wicked Local”. - Yes, last week there was information that the Ministry of Defense and the Russian government signed a special agreement. And after that, rumors spread that 50000 Russian soldiers had already arrived in the US for training exercises. ” This tells "InoTV".

The reason for the rumors, continues Mazzalya, was a message in the media that the Russian Emergencies Ministry and the US Federal Emergency Management Agency agreed to exchange experts during joint rescue operations.

The rumor itself was sold, as the author suggests, from the Infowars website, where a note appeared that the 15000 Russian military would soon arrive in America. The site “Inquistr” developed the theme, having already informed about hundreds of thousands of foreign military in the States.

The US Department of Defense decided to deny rumors. It reported that in Russia military men from Russia were participating in the exercise - and there were twenty of them there.

Remember everything. American scientists managed to create artificial fictitious memories and implant them into the brain of a living being, transmit "Vesti" with reference to ITAR-TASS.

The object of the experiment was the mouse. The essence of the technology - the introduction of additional information in the areas of the brain containing memories.

Experiments with mice offer opportunities for applying the method in humans. Artificial memories implanted in the human brain can be used to treat severe mental trauma or bad habits.

With the help of new technologies, we will add, the White House workers could really carry out a “reset” with Russia. For example, Barack Obama should have written positive information about his happy Moscow student body to the brain. Well, hawk congressmen could be cured of aggression towards Russia by implanting memories of a carefree barefoot childhood on the Volga.

        Dr. Abbas Khalaf: “The West in the Middle East uses Islam as a Trojan horse”

        The events taking place today in the countries of the Middle East are a real chaos, which was, first of all, the result of US interference in the internal affairs of the region.


        - The events taking place today in the countries of the Middle East are a real chaos, which was primarily the result of US intervention in the internal affairs of the region. This chaos led to rampant radicalism, various terrorist organizations. Today, the Middle East has become an “attractive arena” for various kinds of radical groups, a camp for training and retraining of terrorist groups. I repeat, the United States of America played a huge role in this.

        They are instigators for creating another hotbed of tension in the Middle East. And, of course, America uses this chaos for its narrow interests. The US wants to act as the only superpower, to dictate its rules everywhere. So the Middle East has been declared the region of vital interests for the United States and its Western partners. The worst thing is that with this chaos there is a complete discredit of Islam. The rush against "Islamic terrorists" at the level of the average man occurs against the backdrop of the revitalization of radical Islamic fundamentalists in various parts of the world.

And so they portray themselves as a buffer, but we must raise our self-esteem.

      sending soldiers into battle without rifles is “more likely from the history of Russia into the First World War, and not from the USSR into the Second World War”

      Probably there were no rifles, it was unlikely to be mass among the soldiers, but there could have been a popular militia near Moscow in 1941.
      There were detachments.

      But ... this is unlikely to characterize the army that survived in Stalingrad, which broke the Germans (at the zenith of strength) on the Kursk Bulge, conducted Bagration, the Wisla-Oder operation at a pace equal to or greater than the achievements of the German Blitzkriegs.
      Well ... it is unlikely that such an army would be able to pass through Manchuria like a knife without a break. The Japanese were not the weakest warriors, and in our experience Halkin-Gol and the experience of the Americans.

I am not inclined, perhaps, as some, to appreciate the beauty of the syllable of the novel, the spiritual lamentations of its characters. His goal is different, and at least the whole Western community writes praise about the “great novel of the 20th century” and other ...

              No, the agents were different. They still argue whether Ulyanov-Lenin was a German agent, or just threw the Germans just like then all the other fellow travelers. However, the Germans and other parties threw money. Who let Finland and Poland go for free bread? Because he had a principle - the right of nations to self-determination. Well, then he laid a mine for many years to come, creating national republics and telling some nations that they are now titular. Well. and nations then self-realized and self-determined, as you know. They argue about Beria, they suspect that he was an agent of the Musavatists. And what? It was necessary to cause such damage to the country - they put Tupolev, Yakovlev, Grigorovich, Korolev (the future and pride of Soviet aviation and cosmonautics). The future Marshal of the Soviet Union Rokossovsky sat and received ribs. This is so, surnames for example, there were much more. Damn, solid agents around. And whose agent was Khrushchov, who planted corn in the country, cut ships and planes for scrap, banged artillery and drove out a lot of sensible officers from the army? Apparently the USA? Well, those who, as you write, rocked the boat all their lives, only got on the head, because then it was impossible to get money from anyone, how to spend it. Where it was better to support the boat - you and the car, and money, and the cottage. All kinds of literary funds, orders and special rations. Grace! And no camps and asylums. And the country, ours, respected, the Communists and pros ... whether, and I was among them. Nicholas II is accused of weakness, so the Communists were no better - one ruler was weaker than the other after Stalin. Like spiders in a bank, they came to power through conspiracies and coups according to the old Russian tradition. Why did they create such a strong system that Grosman managed to break it down with Solzhenitsyn?

And I, too, did not want to stand up for the falling power. Why? Yes, because the party and Soviet bosses with the Komsomol felt the taste of money in the second half of the 80s. Previously, they converted power into special rations, but they liked the money better. So I then said to one person: "That's it, krants. The authorities tasted the taste of money." Here the power, in my opinion, still cannot wake up from this taste.

And the fact that functionaries of different levels of the party, Soviet and Komsomol rushed for money, betraying their own ideals (which, however, it turns out a long time ago).

It is clear that the managed subsystem, in these conditions, can affect the subject of management only by radical methods (they do not voluntarily give up power). But the counter-revolution was preparing in a quiet (under the guise of perestroika) and what happened happened. The people were simply not ready for the betrayal of the elite. By that time, the GKChP no longer had power, and not only political (like the ability to carry out violence, dictating its will), but any other (the ability to influence people's behavior).

                Well, now about the future. If someone declares that he knows what bright future the people need to lead to, then the tenth road must be run from him. It always ends with a collapse and a mess. Here the French Communards knew where to lead the people, and led to terror and Napoleon. The Bolsheviks knew where to lead all of humanity to the world revolution, and they led to terror within a single country with the subsequent weakening of their power and the collapse of this very country. Now the United States knows where to lead humanity, the result will be the same.
                Nobody in the white world designed and built a slave system, followed by the feudal system, then the capitalist system. Humanity grew, matured, mastered new forms of mutual existence and economic life. Finally, it has grown to capitalism, and so far has not created anything new. All sorts of "isms" are invented in the silence of academic offices. I am generally silent about communism - if you demand from every pig whenever possible, and give her everything according to need, then the pig’s possibilities will sharply decrease, and she will wallow in a warm puddle for a day or two. But we did not have socialism at all - there was state capitalism in which the state owned the means of production. It took away surplus value and disposed of income itself. True, there were also elements of feudalism such as the attachment of collective farmers to the land through the seizure of their passports. For the seized income and income from the sale of minerals, the state armed itself, as it considered necessary, and gave money and weapons to half the planet.
                There is no way to return to this, capitalism remains, although today it has begun to transform through a crisis. And where is the wise guy who reports, what will capitalism be tomorrow? We already have capitalism, only it is ugly so far, because there are no real capitalists, and where do they come from after 80 years of state management of the economy? So what about what future am I? To paraphrase Lenin, we must learn capitalism in the present way, learn to earn as much money as possible in our country, participating in the world division of labor. After all, money is in the global economy, and you can get it from there only by offering the desired product to the world market. In the meantime, it turns out to sell only gas, oil, wood and weapons. With the rest of the problem.
                We must learn to win in market wars, educate commanders-in-chief, generals, officers and soldiers of these wars. There will be a lot of money, there will be education, and medicine, and science, and industry. And ships, and planes, and missiles, and powerful aircraft. And without money, these are all beautiful dreams.

                  "And without money it's all beautiful dreams"

                  It’s a pity, but the post began so beautifully, a very instructive example with a pig, especially for livestock specialists. And in the end, complete disappointment, it turns out the whole thing, corny, in money. You didn’t try to contact Bernanke, he had already spoiled so much paper and green paint. It seems that ships, and planes, and missiles, and powerful aircraft are education, and medicine, and science, and industry, too, not frail, but there is still no happiness. Can you tell him, instead of one machine, put two.

                    The whole problem is that Bernanke can afford it, but we do not. We did not arrange the financial world according to our patterns, but the United States, no matter how sad it is for me to admit. Well, the States did not invent commodity-money relations and money. By the way, money is simply the result of the economic success of a person and a country. The USSR was strong in tanks, but not in the international economy. It would be necessary for the USSR to learn how to make money, as after Deng Xiaoping, China began to do it successfully. Result: soon China will have many tanks, but we have few. We all do not know how to get this money, like the USSR. Do you know what is the most powerful weapon of the USA and China? Corporations and effective market managers.

Each of your statements is either a lie or a half-truth pulled out of specific historical situations, which is worse than a lie. According to John Reed, one should not study the history of his country (as well as Solzhenitsyn-Mlechin-Radzinsky-Svanidze, etc.), since this is clearly not enough (and here it is even harmful to the thinking process).

But what could have been done without such leaders in capturing mail, telegraph and telephone? This is just a historical document, an eyewitness account.

    the game developer, Relic, claims the game reflects historical realities. Project manager Quinn Duffy said the campaign was based on the work of Vasily Grossman, who spent three years on the front lines and had "unrivaled access to command on various fronts."


    Mr. Quinn Duffy should learn history not from the fiction of offended people, but from historical documents, and the fact that he carries it is just cheap excuses. The game is made so that the hands itch to explain to him why my grandfather died from the effects of injuries after the war. You are brainless.

    I think the FSB should take control of a stake in jihad tourism. Open in all major cities and republics of the Caucasus "reception centers" and training camps in Russia. Only when the bus wakes up to bring a new batch of "tourists" high up into the mountains, should it turn out that this is not a training camp, but a small factory for the disposal of biological material. Whom at once in expense, whom to organs ...
    For me, so perfect. Relatives and so often know that their relative went to fight in some country, and let them think that he died there.

    “The reconciliation process will not cost anything, and Russia has nothing to fear from Lithuania, Estonia, Latvia. Make an effort, a step towards reconciliation. Recognize the mistakes of the Soviet Union, because these are not the mistakes of modern Russia ”

    Well, first of all, they need not be afraid, but they.
    Secondly, confess what? The fact that they did not evict tenants, built infrastructure, made an exhibition window from the Baltic states during the Soviet era. If we satisfy the request of Estonia and Latvia to remove from their territory all the structures (supposedly due to their ugliness) built by the Union, then we will get an almost ecologically clean virgin landscape.
    Regarding the above-mentioned tenants, a brief excursion into history:
    Today's Baltic states did not have limotrophs until the collapse of the Russian Empire, their statehood (meaning Estonia and Latvia). These territories wandered from hand to hand. After a long Northern War (waged by Peter I and Sweden), a peace agreement was concluded in Nishtadt, according to which Livonia and Estland (present-day Estonia and Lithuania) were transferred to Russia, for which 3 million "efimoks" were paid to Russia in favor of the Swedish crown ( at that time in Russia the so-called silver Swedish thaler).
    So in essence, this is the territory that we bought from the legitimate owners of the Swedes, which can be lost only in two scenarios - either a defeat in the war with the transfer of these territories, or a sale in the image of Alaska. None of these scenarios were implemented if my memory serves me right.
    That's why I ask, explain to me a fool how a tenant can demand something from the owner of the apartment without paying for the rent. Evict the hell.

Tell the boycott to all your familiar club promoters, DJs, cafe owners, so that they exclude Russian vodka brands from the menu of their establishments. It's time to answer Russia. "

    Excellent review, invigorated since Monday, it’s only a pity if it is true in Syria that the soldiers were executed.
    Poles burn as usual .. they remind you of a mentally ill person who picks himself up a wound over and over again, enjoying that it does not heal
    Alec Lun (“The Guardian”, UK; source of translation - “InoSMI”) writes that there is nothing "more Russian than vodka" in the world. Therefore, it seemed quite reasonable for representatives of sexual minorities to target a well-known drink.

    Us on them on these "Russians" "Stolichnaya" (produced by the company "SPI Group" Yuri Shefler)
    The Russian Federation represented by FKP Soyuzplodoimport won a landslide victory in a nearly ten-year-long litigation over international rights to vodka brands Stolichnaya and Moskovskaya. The Court of Appeal in The Hague on July 24 confirmed the decision of the first instance, recognizing that the Dutch Spitits International BV, part of Yuri Shefler’s SPI Group, obtained the rights to Soviet vodka brands in an unfair way. Lawyers call this verdict a precedent that could entail similar court decisions in other countries.

    and then, as usual .. Russian Russian .. and they rule is not completely different.

    The victory of Assad will weaken the position in the world of Cameron and Obama, and at the same time strengthen the influence of Iran and Russia: these countries are not bowed to international pressure.

    Such countries are immortal; it is impossible to persuade them; this proves that not everything is decided only by money. Do not have a hundred rubles, but have a hundred friends.
    Ukrainian hard choice. The representative of Ukraine in the Eurasian Economic Commission Viktor Suslov said the need to deepen cooperation between Ukraine and the countries of the Customs Union, reports "Interfax-Ukraine".

    Ukraine needs to spit on these geyropeytsy and grind. Just yesterday, two nations celebrated two large-scale events at once, the Baptism of Rus and Navy Day. Festive events were held in Sevastopol and other cities of Russia and Ukraine, and at the parade in Sevastopol warships sailed under the flags of Russia and Ukraine. Here it is happiness, this is one brotherhood and unity, so be it forever.
    Russian, do not be afraid of the Baltic states and make peace with Poland. The conclusion of an agreement between Russia and the EU on a visa-free regime is hindered by the incompleteness of the process of historical reconciliation between Russia and the Baltic countries with Poland, said the head of the European Socio-Economic Committee, Henri Maloss.

    Only if the abovementioned countries leave NATO membership and agree at the legislative level to prohibit LGBT communities, as well as withdraw from the Heroes Union (GES).

    Who should they apologize to? For what?
    For the construction of roads, bridges, factories and factories!
    For the fact that under the USSR the standard of living in the Baltic republics was higher than in the RSFSR.
    For the fact that the level of people with higher education was one of the highest in the USSR, or for leaving industry after declaration of independence?
    The meaning of such a transparent idea is quite simple. After recognizing the mistakes that have occurred with the USSR, you can safely rewrite history and ask for compensation !!

    ... during the visit of US observers, the results of the work carried out at the enterprise under the "Agreement between the Russian government and the US government on the use of highly enriched uranium extracted from nuclear weapons", signed in February 1993 and designed for 20 years, will be summed up.


    The main result: the local uranium enrichment industry in the United States has died safely, peace be upon it ...

    Moscow. 29 July. INTERFAX.RU - Metropolitan police conduct operational preventive measures in the markets after the incident with the beating of their colleague in western Moscow.

    Last Saturday, a clash of citizens with the police occurred at the Matveyevsky market: about two dozen immigrants from the southern regions tried to recapture an 15-year-old girl suspected of rape from operatives. As a result, one of the policemen received a severe head injury and was hospitalized in intensive care.

    “At the direction of Anatoly Yakunin, the chief of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in Moscow, police officers are conducting preventive measures aimed at decriminalizing the capital’s markets,” the press service of the Moscow Main Directorate told Interfax.

    See the original material at http://www.interfax.ru/russia/news.asp?id=320771

        the topic went to them .... at the time of arrest they say that they don’t know the language ... a person who knows the language is 95% “local” with whom they will either negotiate or threaten .. because the criminal group is face-to-face.

    I think that the majority is somehow with both hands for, but here are the outposts of the Baltic states and Poles for .. tired of it.
    Although it should be noted that many Russians are waiting for an apology from the Balts for Nazi tricks, and as an apology I think you can be satisfied with the ban on Nazi symbols and propaganda and compensation to our veterans who live in the Baltic states for the insults they inflicted. And the lifting of the ban on the Soviet esseno.
