Russia only plays great power ("Delfi.lv", Latvia)



Russia plays a great power, although in fact it is not. The director of the Latvian Foreign Policy Institute, Andris Spruds, spoke about this in an interview with the First Baltic Channel.

Spruds himself in Russia is banned. He became a persona non grata in response to the blacklist of the political consultant Modest Kolerov and some other Russians.

По мнению Андриса Спрудса, взгляды Латвии и России в historical и стратегических вопросах расходятся, но между странами нет никаких проблем в сфере экономики. «Россия играет в большую страну. Это для нее важно. Но Россия больше играет, чем на деле таковой является», — отметил политолог.

According to him, Russia remains great in production. weapons and energy. “But look at the competitiveness and attractiveness of the political and economic model. Here I will say that Russia is not a great power, - Andris Spruds considers. - Who would like to become a member of some organization in which Russia heads? You will see, Belarus, perhaps, even Kazakhstan, Armenia to some extent forced. And to Ukraine they say: “If you do not enter, then you will have a cold winter”.

      Sprats in a tantrum laughing You see, dear colleague, very important hospods from the Baltic Limitrophy really want to show their zeal in licking the master's Phashington ass ... only here one trouble in their efforts, these degenerates have already reached their maximum, and so they have driven their tongues in the ass .. .but the desire to curry favor remains even more ... Only radical measures can help here, and their V.V. Zhirinovsky incidentally recently very well voiced.

            A philosophical and historical study of the spirituality of the Turkmen people - “Rukhnama” (“Book of the Spirit”), the author of which is considered to be Saparmurat Niyazov - was first published in 2001. According to Niyazov, the Turkmens are the leaders in a number of inventions, for example,for example wheels and carts. They were the first to start melting metal. Also according to his version, the ancestors of modern Turkmens founded more than 70 states on the territory of modern Eurasia.

              In Turkmenistan, the secret of the origin of human culture on all continents of the planet Earth has been revealed and scientifically confirmed. As the honored worker of science and technology of Turkmenistan, academician, professor of geophysics and geology, Odek Odekov, both the Aztecs, and Incas, Ainu, Sumerians, and even the Scandinavians came from the ancient Turkmen, and even, in fact, they themselves were ancient Turkmen, who found out Migrating to Europe, Asia and America, they generously carried their high culture, knowledge and civilization to the world. Almost everything that mankind has today, the world was originally obliged to the ancient Turkmens, simply for what they were.

              Ferghana managed to read two books by Odekov. The first is called “We are Asians, Arians, Turkmens,” the second is “Traces of Turkmens on Earth.” These are collections of articles that were published after Turkmenistan gained independence. Surprisingly, this literature is “secret”, the author does not let the books go on open sale, and if he gives someone to read, then he demands that the copy be returned, so that both great books have the status of travel abroad in Turkmenistan. Most likely, the author fears for the mental health of the Turkmens, who are likely to be stunned with joy by learning the truth. But why these great scientific discoveries are hiding from foreign comrades is not clear. Indeed, if the world finds out about its true ancestors, it will begin to respect Turkmenistan, not only for gas, but in general - for all-all-all.


              The Turkmens invented a wheel, got fire, tamed animals ... “No one can argue with that, just everyone else split the atom and flew into space.” laughing wassat laughing

        But it was almost like that, as part of the USSR. There, before India, it was a stone's throw from some kind of "camp" - all that was separated was a thin strip formally belonging to Afghanistan.
        It's just that the geography is such that there is no way to be independent for the Baltic states. I did not like to be one of the most developed places in the USSR - welcome to the role of the god of the forgotten backyards of the Gayropeysky Union.

      The Baltic states never had a brain, they were always led. Look at their history, the Livonian Order, then the Poles, a little Danes, a little Swedes and from 1721 the territory of Livonia by the Swedes was sold to the Russian Empire.
      And the fact that this imperfection drives Russia is our favorite political move in Latvia - if you want to be a Latvian Latvian - say disgusting things about Russia.

      Be lenient. This is the privilege of the powerful. It seems to me possible to understand, but not justify the Latvians. They always felt their inferiority. They were second-class people. Wild pagan tribes when Europe was all Christian. The servants are the Livonian knights, the Ostsee barons, the Germans (Riga is a completely German city), Russian officials and officers. The Latvian servant is a sign of bad taste, rude and sloppy. You think! Not a single, world-class talent! Zero! only pop Pauls, for laughs. And dull anger has been accumulating for centuries. And rushed in 1917. What did the so-called Latvian arrows and Latvian security officers - defies description. Entire families went to the "work" in the Cheka, to rob and destroy the "bourgeois ballast" - just literate Russian people. Cheka was 80% Latvian. Berzins, krastinshi, wacetis, Alksnis and other Latvian scum spilled rivers of Russian blood. True, then, comrade Stalin paid them what they deserved. And what do you want from them. Without its past, with a suspended present and future in an endangered country. Spittingly squeamish.

      And you do not agree with this ?. What else can Russia supply to the foreign market? Moreover, if the quality of Russian weapons deteriorates (India) and competition in the arms market (China) increases, then only energy resources will remain.

    Do not envy dear Andris Spruds !!! We can at least play, but you can’t even think of such a thing. You do not have an army, the military industry either, the economy is insignificant in size. You had a chance to represent something in the world, but only being part of the Union. You have chosen independence. So "rejoice in the German boot." It seems like your defense minister put it?

    The share of Russian capital in Latvian banks is about 20 percent.
    The share of Russian transit through Latvian ports is 75 percent.
    So for all the alleged independence, Latvia is more than dependent.
    Russia is the largest consumer of Latvian export goods -18.9 percent.

    Yes, because the so-called Russians allow them everything .. You look at the so-called Beaumond (he sang a little bit more decent songs, and got old women, or a little curving on the stage), run and buy in Latvia (Riga, Jurmola), houses, pitchforks , apartments .. And yet on our channels on TV, they brag to each other. And there are not a few of them ... Yes, because our bankers and Nuvovarishi carry and keep their money in their banks, and when they buy real estate, they prevail citizenship .. And this gives them the right to travel around Endrop without a visa ... Yes, according to the fact that all sorts of Burbulis, Chubais, at the top echelons of power, restrain the Russian government’s reaction (from practical matters) to the actions of the Baltic states against Russia .. We all play in tolerance, and are afraid to inflict moral and physical damage, supposedly to our good neighbors, or imaginary to our former cohabitants ... They forget in Russia, some people don’t know, and they don’t know anywhere in the wide information, mass media, etc., that Latvia is the former Latgale, the former Courland, since the creation of the Russian states (principalities) .. more than once then it was part of the Russian principalities, then it came out of them .. It was under the heel of the Swedes, then the Rus, then the Gandzian Union., then again the Rus, then again the Teutons, and so on to infinity ... Now the period has come, the union with the European (so-called) countries .. But nearing the traveling period, when Russia will get bored that this rootless mongrel is barking at it, and for some reason, this country will again become dependent on the Russians .. But then it seems that you don’t have to make the previous mistakes, you have to disperse their statehood and abolish any republic in it, and call some sort of western region of Russia, to calm them in the end ..

      Moscow, April 26. President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev

      We will be realistic - it is unlikely that we will succeed in catching up with and overtaking the leading powers in the technological level of Russia's development in the near future. The Russian economy is 10 times less than the American. And the scientific potential was actually destroyed after the collapse of the USSR. Today, the gap in a number of critical basic technologies from leading Western countries is decades.

It is foolish to deny that Russia has a desire to become strong, independent, the country has imperial ambitions, a desire to restore its former greatness, influence, so passive rotting mongrels always yelp.

    How tired of this constant barking of these mongrels.
    At us, as well as in Latvia, etc. This is a daily activity for a certain circle of people. Well, the DELFI portal is the main mouthpiece of Russophobia in both languages.

      And all this policy, the division of society into Russians and non-Russians, is necessary for the authorities to cover up their mediocrity and inability to conduct state activities. Well, and for the fact that the bi has not ripened a question in society, and who in our country so badly publishes all 3.14 popular goods.

        And all this policy, the division of society into Russians and non-Russians, is necessary for the authorities to cover up their mediocrity and inability to conduct state activities.

        And yet the fulfillment of the will of the owner. Take, at least the latest events in Syria, nothing has become clear, yet, except for the states, no one has determined for themselves what’s what, but our Foreign Minister has already stated the need for a military action and full support for it.
        So they combine the useful with the pleasant here.
        Well, and for the fact that the bi has not ripened a question in society, and who in our country so badly publishes all 3.14 popular goods.

        Here, everything is much sadder. Horns and legs have long remained from the good of the people.
        Famous and cost-effective agriculture destroyed.
        Famous and cost-effective fishing obliterated.
        Industry destroyed.
        Etc. etc. Almost nothing remained of his own.
        And there is no one to rebel. The title ones revel in independence and try to survive (tear the claws to the West), but not the title ones declared a priori by the enemies are brutally suppressed and also tear the claws. sad

    Resentment for the past appears in every word of this gentleman. But he is a scientist. And his phrases as from a textbook on anti-Russian rhetoric are a set of stamped slogans directed against Russia. I recall the great fabulist Krylov: ah Moska, she is strong to know, since she barks at an elephant!

    In general, a great country is considered when it is - a great idea. The Americans have it. In Russia, what is the idea? There were associations under the idea of ​​protection against enemies, (Horde, Livonians, Poles, etc.), so to speak, the idea of ​​survival, the idea of ​​Orthodoxy, the idea of ​​Communism, what now?

    Be lenient. This is the privilege of the powerful. It seems to me possible to understand, but not justify the Latvians. They always felt their inferiority. They were second-class people. Wild pagan tribes when Europe was all Christian. The servants are the Livonian knights, the Ostsee barons, the Germans (Riga is a completely German city), Russian officials and officers. The Latvian servant is a sign of bad taste, rude and sloppy. You think! Not a single, world-class talent! Zero! only pop Pauls, for laughs. And dull anger has been accumulating for centuries. And rushed in 1917. What did the so-called Latvian arrows and Latvian security officers - defies description. Entire families went to the "work" in the Cheka, to rob and destroy the "bourgeois ballast" - just literate Russian people. Cheka was 80% Latvian. Berzins, krastinshi, wacetis, Alksnis and other Latvian scum spilled rivers of Russian blood. True, then, comrade Stalin paid them what they deserved. And what do you want from them. Without its past, with a suspended present and future in an endangered country. Spittingly squeamish.

    Well, for example, the revival of Russia after twenty years of decline. the revival of its military power. increasing the weight of my country in the world. occupation of the place (far from the last) that my country deserves. and most importantly, the return of Russian self-esteem. and let the rest smoke nervously in the corner. my country should not look back at anyone, nor at the geyropu, nor at the mattresses. But can you say the same about your country?
