Russia: the future is getting darker (Strategy Page, USA)China enthusiastically plays the role of instigators in the activities of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization. This regional security forum was created in 2001 in Shanghai, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Russia and China. Initially, the main goal of the SCO was to fight Islamic terrorism. However, Russia hoped to turn the SCO into a counterbalance to NATO. Members of this organization conduct joint military exercises, which are mostly ostentatious. They also share information about terrorists, which is often very useful. Countries like Iran, India, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Mongolia and Turkey want to join the SCO. These countries are allowed to send observers to meetings of the organization. China attaches increasing importance to economic cooperation, as its economic power brings this country to the fore, and it replaces Russia as the main investor and trading partner with the countries of the region. Russia does not like to focus on this, because it means expanding China’s economic and political power. On paper, China today is the dominant military force in Eurasia, and Russia is trying in every way to downplay the importance of this factor. Many Russians fear that the aggressiveness that China is demonstrating today in relation to India and to all those who border the South China Sea may turn against Russia over time.


Government economists lower their growth projections: from 4 to 2,5% from today to 2030, and roughly the same reduction figures are for the short term. This is mainly the result of the decline in world prices for oil and gas, and this reduction is caused by the American revolution in oil and gas production using hydraulic fracturing technology. In this regard, reduced fear of reducing the supply of oil and gas. Since oil and gas are the main items of Russian exports and the source of foreign exchange earnings, this is very bad for Russia. Corruption and the lack of a reliable legal system discourage foreign investors and prevent Russian entrepreneurs from creating new and developing existing companies. It seems even more painful in comparison with Western Europe, where there are no special oil reserves, but there is a much more favorable business climate. For example, the population of Britain is two times less than in Russia, and the GDP there is by 25% more.

But in Russia there are also positive sides. Some declining defense enterprises are starting to revive. The state-owned helicopter company has orders for 5 billion dollars only for the supply of commercial and military helicopters to the countries of the Middle East and Africa. Russian helicopters are unpretentious and cheaper than Western models, and therefore they can return to many countries around the world.

Russian diplomacy is also making great strides. Attempts to organize a peace conference with the goal of ending the civil war in Syria are not yielding results, but in general, Russian support for the Syrian government has so far been quite successful. Iran and many rebel groups do not want to participate in this conference, but Russia persuaded NATO to put pressure on the rebels to come to the talks. The rebels and their Arab supporters are angry with the US and Europe because they do not render them aviation support and agreed to a deal organized through the mediation of Russia on the destruction of the Syrian chemical weapons. Russia also deserves credit for the success in the negotiations with Iran on nuclear disarmament.

North Korea was another Russian diplomatic success. Neighbors are trying to help this country in solving its economic problems. And Russia manages to shoot both tops and roots. It concludes trade agreements with both Koreas, and in fact, convinced South Korea to quietly invest its capital in the Russian project to modernize and extend the inactive railroad from Russia to the DPRK. The revival of the railway link between the two Koreas will also create new trading opportunities and new business for North Korea, as South Korean goods will be transported through this country to China, Russia and Eurasia (via the Trans-Siberian Railway). This is a very concrete and optimistic perspective for all three countries, and it finds support in the form of financial promises from Russia and South Korea. Everything depends on the leadership of the North, which must agree that the salvation of the country is in economic reforms. At the moment, the North Korean elite are afraid of any changes, as this may trigger a revolution. But changes are still taking place, and rich neighbors are trying to explain this to the perplexed leadership of the DPRK.

Meanwhile, in Russia there are some fundamental problems that are not amenable to any attempts to solve them. For example, Russia recently discovered that although its Air Force has 16 heavy Tu-160 bombers, only a few cars can fly, because spare parts for them are running out. This is the result of the closure of numerous Soviet factories in 1990, which produced the most important components and parts for these aircraft. And new sources of supply of spare parts have not yet been found. There is also a shortage of special production equipment and specialists capable of working on it. Thus, the company that received an order for the repair of 26 engines XK NUMX NK, which are used on the Tu-32, managed to complete the work on only four of them in two years. And these are just engines. Plans for the repair and upgrading of all 160 aircraft depend on a variety of suppliers capable of providing aircraft manufacturers with their products. But the list of suppliers unable to cope with the tasks set is constantly growing. Russia has been postponing the solution of this problem for more than ten years, because it had a lot of spare parts for the most important weapon systems, which were becoming ever smaller. But now these parts are running out, and if there are no new suppliers, it will be impossible to maintain the weapons of the Cold War at the proper level.

The Russian Ministry of Defense this year unexpectedly implemented a series of changes. For the first time, the “control center” of the armed forces will exist separately (in the new complex of buildings) from the headquarters (General Staff, which has been planning and administering for a long time). This is part of the Western tendency to establish civilian control over the highest military command. At the same time, much attention was paid to reassuring and delighting the guardians of military traditions. The Ministry of Defense overturned the decision to transfer to the new brigade structure two elite divisions stationed in the Moscow region (Kantemirovskaya tank and Taman Motor Rifle Division). The ministry also ordered that ideological training be returned to the troops and began to use the services of informants and sociological services more often to monitor the political and moral condition and loyalty of servicemen. In fact, the government returned the institution of “political leaders” (deputy commander for political affairs) that existed in the era of communism. In Soviet times, each unit commander and subunit had their own deputy (political officer), who represented the Communist Party and had the right to veto any decision of the commander. The deputy political officer was responsible for the loyalty of the military personnel and for their correct political moods and views. He was something like a chaplain, but from the Communists. Earlier (in 2010), military priests reappeared in the Russian army, with whom the Communists finished off in the 1920s. However, new priests are required to report on the loyalty of servicemen to both the church and the state. No new posts have been introduced for ideological training and moral control in the army. This is not exactly a return to the era of the politicians, but many of the duties of the politicians have returned.

The Japanese complain that Russian combat aircraft are increasingly flying in close proximity to their airspace, and these complaints are puzzling to Russian leaders. After all, their airplanes simply increasingly perform training tasks, and there is a lot of Japanese airspace east of Eurasia. So the Russian combat vehicles can’t fly around with Japanese air defense radars. In the past six months, Japanese fighters went on alert an average of once a day to intercept approaching Russian aircraft.

    "Russia: the future is getting darker (" Strategy Page ", USA)" - everything is immediately clear!) They have such forecasts for every year, as soon as Putin came to power. We lived cloudlessly only under EBN.

    Hostile whirlwinds blow over us
    Dark forces oppress us viciously.
    We entered into a fatal battle with enemies,
    Unknown destinations await us.
    But we will raise proudly and boldly
    The banner of the struggle for the working cause,
    The banner of the great struggle of all nations
    For a better world, for holy freedom.
    Chorus:
    To the bloody fight
    Holy and right
    March, March forward
    The working people.
    A worker is dying these days with hunger,
    Do we brothers keep silence longer?
    Our associates are young eyes
    Can a scaffold look scary?
    In the great battle they will not perish without a trace
    Fallen with honor in the name of ideas.
    Their names with our winning song
    They will be sacred to the millions of people.
    Chorus
    We hate the tyrants of the crown
    The chains of the suffering people we honor.
    Blood Folk Thrones
    We will stain our enemies with blood!
    Merciless death to all adversaries!
    To all the parasites of the working masses!
    Vengeance and death to all plutocratic kings!
    Victory hour is near victory.

            I will not say about the night, I usually throw out the trash in the morning, I often meet grannies of pensioners digging in the trash. Immediately make a reservation, not homeless with blue alcoholic noses, but ordinary grandmothers. They ask for help - I help as I can.

                Against the backdrop of the collapse of the economy, industry, closed factories, a decline in the living standards of the people, the holding of a very costly Olympics, it seems to be a political farce of the supreme power of Russia.

Here you have, Mr. Smirnov, almost always such a competent approach on the topic of the deprived, oppressed and destitute, that right now even with the pitchforks and torches you want to run to the Kremlin ... the Olympics? Perhaps they will write in a hundred history books a hundred years later, they say the most elegant Olympiad, and the people were starving ... You are a progressive intellectual, it is because of people like you that revolution is taking place at the moment when everything starts to improve.

                Most of their small pensions go to pay for medicines (sores become more and more, and medicines are now expensive) and to pay for constantly increasing housing and communal services tariffs. It remains only for bread and milk?

              Partially I agree with you, this is a shame for the state, I myself help such people. But there are 2 questions: 1. Where are their children and relatives? 2. Why are there no such grannies in the Transcaucasian republics? Maybe this is also due to the fact that we become "ivans who do not remember kinship"?

He already has that, and that the minimum wage is more of a regulatory and indicative function, and therefore it can be assigned at any level that is convenient for the state at the current moment, even shadow employers do not look back at this minimum wage, hiring Uzbeks, generally the minimum wage it is not needed in everyday life - it all rests, in the West the minimum wage is large, everything, the West is better and more.

              It is interesting that you sing, if from your agreed income monthly 30% cut.
              According to the Ministry of Labor in the Russian Federation, the minimum wage is received by 1.3 million people who are regularly robbed regularly (only in the 13th year they were shod with 37 rubles, and this, excuse me, at least part 876 of the 800th Criminal Code)

              Minimum wage is more regulatory-indicative

          the people of Russia at night rummages around in search of bottles

          The pro-government neoliberals like to recall the hungry 90s and reproach those who are not happy with Putin, they say it is necessary to work, not to whine, then everything will be tip-top.
          As far as I understand, now they "settled down", integrated into the system and spitting through their lips at those who could not, they think that this is forever.
          And I have a question. How did such successful and hard-working people "starve" in the 90s?
          In the 90s, I collected bottles and aluminum cans and dug and sewed and traded land, and at the factory I worked and taxed and built. I was spinning as best I could, but I didn’t ache that there was nothing to eat, although the choice of goods was poorer than now. But there was a feeling that everything would work out, everything would work out. Medicine was free, as was education. Housing and communal services - ridiculous money. There were almost no cars, but for that reason public transport in the region was functioning properly.
          And most importantly, even the oligarchs had some kind of human concept and did not publicly impudent.
          And then came St. Petersburg ....
          I don’t even want to continue.

          It seems to me that as a result of many years of permanent government of GDP, the country will collapse into such a hole. that the 90s will not seem so scary to you. What will you do then?

      I have a friend, he lives in Moscow, I won’t call the district. But I think many Muscovites know this problem closely. At a friend, the child goes to the most ordinary Moscow school, he studies in the 5 class. A boy from an intelligent Russian family, you can say the native Muscovites.
      And just recently we met with a friend and he shared his huge problem with me, but I did not even know what to advise him.
      The child is fond of music, is engaged in foreign languages, loves the computer. In short, a normal city guy. She studies well at school.
      About a year later, a friend began to notice that his son had changed a lot, became introverted. Several times I came home with a bruise, but the boy, with whom it does not happen. But then the boy's performance began to drop sharply. Naturally, this greatly alarmed the parents. They started talking with their son, a friend went to school to talk with the class teacher and find out what and how with his son.
      It turned out that over the past few years in the area where my friend lived, just "darkness" of migrants settled. They filled all the clinics, all social institutions, kindergartens and, of course, schools. Rather, not the migrants themselves, but their numerous offspring. For the most part, these same migrants speak poor Russian and adhere to the Muslim religion.

      This is how some Moscow schools now look like:

      At school, the floor of the class is not Russian, what should I do?

      And these same children of migrants in the class of my friend’s son began to make up the majority. They do not want to speak Russian, all are united in gangs, according to their nationalities. And it even got to the point that during the moments of religious holidays, many began to perform religious rites in school. And the girls are trying to wear their national headscarves (hijab). Of course, teachers try to resist this, but they fail. Children of foreigners are very bad at education, they behave arrogantly and even sometimes just wildly.
      And most importantly, thanks to the herd unification, they began to physically and physically run into Russian children. You imagine, five Tajik children regularly begin to offend one Russian boy. What should he do?
      And at school, total theft began to gain momentum, I just left my briefcase or cell phone, that's all, they steal it right away. And lately it has gone even further, Russian children began to take away the money that their parents give for food and small expenses.
      I listened to the stories of a friend and did not even realize what to advise him. And where is the power in fact, where is the migration policy?
      Now I watched on TV Putin’s meeting with the VNF, he was asked a similar question, in the classroom half are not Russian children, what should I do? Putin responded by teaching them and integrating into society. But this is simply populism, it is simply impossible. Migrants do not need it!

      I want to appeal to my readers, especially to Muscovites and residents of regions where there are many migrants. What should we do? How to let children go to school if half of their classmates do not want to speak Russian? If Russian children are beaten on a national basis?
      I want to understand the mechanism of possible actions? Agree, a very delicate topic, but also very relevant for us.

      and who says hutin don’t get drunk, let him choke

          I agree to all STO! Since we live in such a time, between a gun and a muse, we choose a gun. Mine, too, a couple of years ago was a quiet, modest, well-mannered teenager, the "best friend" was a computer. Some personalities perceived his politeness as a weakness. Now certain things have changed dramatically. No, he remained a polite and well-mannered young man. With classes at school, with specializations in algebra and geometry. Only the Gym became his best friend.

        ".. Minister of the Russian Federation for the Development of the Far East, Plenipotentiary of the President in the Far Eastern Federal District Viktor Ishaev told reporters that the problem of fuel shortage can be solved by building additional oil refineries." The Far East needs three more oil refineries, "the plenipotentiary said. He noted that there are now two large oil refineries in the region - in Komsomolsk-on-Amur and in Khabarovsk, which produce 12 million tons of oil products, and 35 million tons are consumed in the district. "The missing fuel has to be imported," he said.
        Ishaev commented on the proposal of the Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) to solve the problem of fuel shortages in the Far East by supplying gasoline from South Korea, where, according to the department, there is excess capacity for its production. "A kind of economic scheme. After all, South Korea does not extract oil, but buys it from us," he said, stressing that one of the most effective mechanisms for saturating the regional market with gasoline is the creation of a competitive environment within the Far Eastern oil and gas cluster. "Http: // www .regnum.ru / news / 1663872.html
        "In Russia, as of August 2013, 22 new oil refineries are being designed," the Oil of Russia portal reports, citing data from the register of the Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation. " http://sdelanounas.ru/blogs/39112/

        Good evening, Vadim! hi
        Infa for thought.
        Iran is ready to bring oil prices down to $ 20 per barrel
        London. 5 December. FINMARKET.RU - On Wednesday, Iran and Saudi Arabia entered into an open conflict over the increase in oil production, writes the Financial Times. Iran wants to increase oil production, despite the fact that OPEC has left its production goals for the next year unchanged at 30 million barrels per day.
        The oil cartel controls a third of the global oil market. OPEC is one of the few sources of free capacity, and therefore has a significant impact on prices.
        But OPEC now needs to cope with the growth of oil production in the United States, as well as the ambitions of Iraq and Iran - these two members of the cartel want to increase oil production, despite the goals of the group.
        Tehran was inspired by the agreement on a nuclear program that the government concluded with the countries of the West 10 days ago. Now the country's authorities hope that they will be able to conclude a deal and completely lift the sanctions imposed on the country. Iran hopes it can quickly increase production from its current level of 2,7 million barrels per day. Iraq also plans to increase production next year by 1 million barrels per day to 4 million.
        Iranian oil minister Bijan Zangane on Wednesday in Vienna said the country was ready to unleash a price war: increase oil production, even if prices fall.
        "We will reach 4 million barrels per day, even if oil prices fall to $ 20," Zangane said.
        The rest of OPEC will have to cut back on production in order to maintain market prices when Iran returns to it.
        Iran’s tough statements are linked to the fact that it is setting the stage for future talks with Saudi Arabia, the real leader of OPEC. It is Saudi Arabia that will have to seriously reduce production in order to enable Iran and Iraq to return to markets. The kingdom increased production to a record 10 million barrels per day, to offset the decline in production from other OPEC members.
        So far, Saudi Arabia does not believe that Iran and Iraq will be able to quickly increase production and return to markets.
        “You know what will happen if prices fall to $ 20 per barrel? You know how many countries will have to stop production, including shale oil, oil from the sands of Canada and subsalt sources. All this will be lost,” said Saudi Oil Minister Arabian Ali Al-Naimi.
        The average price of Brent crude oil this year was $ 110 per barrel, which is higher than OPEC's unofficial target. U.S. shale oil production growth was offset by production disruptions in Nigeria and Libya. On Wednesday, Brent rose to its highest level in two months - $ 113 per barrel. Following the OPEC decision, oil prices fell slightly, but quickly recovered.
        So far, OPEC is confident that the main threat to oil prices is a slowdown in economic growth, rather than an increase in supply. However, there are signs that OPEC is considering a reduction in supply next year if the United States continues to withdraw part of the oil market, and Iraq and Iran can increase production.

        If Iran fulfills its threat, what will happen to the economy and budget of Russia ?! Personally, this statement guarded me.

          cheap az. propaganda aimed at presenting Iran in an unsightly light. Let me remind you that it is SA that is the main strikebreaker in OPEC, since it has been producing significantly more oil for a long time than it should by quota. And it is thanks to the coordinated policy of Iran, Russia, Venezuela (for example, it has limited export from 1998 to one third), the price of crude oil since 1998 increased by 10 times or by 1000% (even more if we take it from the minimal values ​​of 1998). Despite the dumping of such litter as CA and Azerbaijan. Why should Iran and Iraq cut the branch on which they sit ???

    But I am sure that, despite all the difficulties, we will break through and revive Russia!

    I will quote N.V. Gogol:
    Is it not you, Russia, that a brisk, irresistible trio, rushing about? The road smokes smoke under you, the bridges rattle, everything lags behind and remains behind. The contemplator, struck by God's miracle, stopped: is this lightning cast from heaven? What does this terrifying movement mean? and what kind of unknown power is enclosed in these unknown horses of light? Oh, horses, horses, what kind of horses! Do whirls sit in your manes? Does your sensitive ear burn in every vein? We heard a familiar song from above, together and at once strained the copper breasts and, almost without touching the hooves of the earth, turned into one elongated line flying through the air, and all inspired by God rushes! .. Russia, where are you rushing? Give an answer. It does not give an answer. The bell is filled with a wonderful ringing; the air rumbles and becomes the wind; everything that is on the earth flies past, and, squinting, stand back and give it way to other nations and states.

Throughout their history mattress toppers up to the 80s of the last century have borrowed $ 1 TRL. And since the beginning of Reigonomy and to this day, in fact, in 30 years they have managed to gain almost 16 more. Now they have reached the pace 1 TRL $ for 1,5 years. It will not tell you anything, paper and paints are available, they will print. To people thinking, this involute speaks of collapse in the next 25-30 years. No country in the world spends so much money on education and does not have more disgusting results than a mattress.
        The results of a survey among students of American colleges, conducted in 1967.
        Question: What do you consider the main goal of your training?
        Answers: 67% - to develop a meaningful life philosophy,
        33% - learn how to make a ton of money.
        The same question was asked in 2000 by students at Washington State University.
        Answers: 42% - look good and have beautiful hair.
        18% - have a constant feeling of high
        6% - get knowledge about the world.

    You can put any number of minuses to the article, but in it, nevertheless, there is truth. And about the fact that our economy is a raw material economy, and the country's leadership does nothing to change this, and about the fact that high-tech industries (Thus, a company that received an order to repair 26 NK 32 engines that are used on the Tu-160 managed to complete only four of them in two years) are destroyed due to the lack of competent and, importantly, young specialists (those who have at least pre-retirement age, but there is no shift!). You can believe that he himself worked in the defense industry - in 2005, when he left the enterprise, he was one of the youngest in the workshop, although it was already 30 years old. And I know that the situation has not improved!

    It’s good to know what those who invest in Russia think about Russia!
    Snowden - you do not have the right to harm our friends, because they can give us cardabalet with banks, and this is something that we can’t do!
    Snowden - shut up, do not bother living normally for those who do not live in Russia!

    Good article. Useful!

    Maybe you still have a lot of problems, but Putin has what you need, I think that he will cope with your internal problems as elegantly as with external problems, I hope you have enough patience. What Putin is doing in the global political environment is worthy of applause! Good president, believe us from here very clearly.

    Members of this organization conduct joint military exercises, which are mostly ostentatious.

    Our teachings have never been ostentatious, the general staff would have been more likely to teach the current more often, the generality has been spilled.

    I haven’t read such nonsense for a long time. It’s a pity that I lost so much time.
