Political analyst Alexei Pushkov: “The year ends for Russia“ on a strong note ””

Political analyst Alexei Pushkov: “The year ends for Russia“ on a strong note ””The results of Russia's actions on the “world chessboard” in the outgoing year in the pages of File-RF are discussed by the chairman of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs Alexey PUSHKOV.


- From the point of view of foreign policy, 2013 is a successful year for Russia, although it started in a conflict atmosphere: 2012 ended in a conflict with the United States on two important aspects of bilateral relations - the adoption of the “Magnitsky law” in the US and “Dima's law” in Russia Yakovlev. And there was a feeling that we are going to intensive political confrontation with the USA.

Both laws have caused a strong reaction in the United States and Russia. But after a while the intensity of the confrontation subsided. For two reasons.

The first: “Magnitsky law”, in my opinion, is a political dummy that exists in a strange formulation. Congress had to counterbalance the repeal of the Jackson-Vanik amendment, which gave freedom to the Russian trade, although some senators said that the “Magnitsky list” would be the basis for protecting prisoners around the world.

But in the final formulation of the law, the Congress showed its narrow political orientation precisely against the Russian Federation. Therefore, he did not acquire a convincing character, and it was not by chance that the US administration chose to reduce the significance of the law, and recently decided not to expand the lists. The first element of tension, from which the year began, came to naught.

The second reason: “the law of Dima Yakovlev” (we were portrayed by the Western media and the liberal ones as extremely negative) justified itself.

It was only thanks to him that the American authorities began to take seriously the issue of the fate of Russian children in the United States. After the adoption of this law, the US Secretary of State set the task before the State Department to seriously address this problem: to collect information, to transfer it to us.

Only after this law in the United States decided that really need to restore order in this area. This does not mean that it is induced, but the American side acknowledged that there are problems, and these problems must be solved. Before the adoption of the law, we did not consider it necessary to respond to our requests.

From the second half of the year, a series of successes of Russian foreign policy began. This is Syria, this is the decision of the Armenian leadership to join the Customs Union, this is the outcome of the Ukrainian crisis. Successes are associated with several factors.

There is a relative weakening of the US role in world politics, which is visible to the naked eye.

We already live and operate in a multipolar world. The peak of a unipolar world fell on the rule of President Bush, at the same time this “world” failed. To pursue a policy of domination, we need a larger reserve of forces than the United States now has.

When a country faces the fact that its public debt exceeds its GDP by 10%, then naturally this limits its possibilities. When it is said for two times a year that a default may occur in the States, in such conditions it is very difficult to pursue a policy of hegemony in the world.

Syria has demonstrated that the United States is in a very difficult phase of its development. The United States did not have enough foreign policy levers or internal confidence to resolve the Syrian issue.

Practically no one in the world supported the military scenario of solving the Syrian problem. After Iraq and Afghanistan, it became clear to everyone that this is a bad way to solve problems — this is a scenario of exacerbating problems.

There is also a weakening of the European Union as a foreign player. It is associated with a very serious crisis in the EU, which should not be underestimated. The crisis is connected with the economic failure of 2008-2009, from which Europe has not yet emerged. There are still several zones of strong social tension.

So, in Spain unemployment is 25%, among young people - up to 40. Greece, if it were not for financial assistance, on the verge of economic collapse, it is unclear how it will give its huge debt in 365 billions of dollars. In Cyprus, the "holy laws" of the liberal economy were violated - the accounts of individuals in a number of troubled banks were canceled, this is a complete scandal.

I just returned from France, the main political issue there is the rise of the National Front Marine Le Pen: 20-22% - the level of popularity, very good prospects for elections to the European Parliament.

This is a reflection of a general trend: right-wing populist parties have arisen in most European countries, which cast doubt on the participation of these countries in the European Union and the eurozone. This is what we see in very many states.

In the last election, the Austrian Freedom Party, even more radical than the French Popular Front, received an 21,5% vote. The True Finns party, which opposes EU policies at least in the field of immigration, has 18% of votes. There are strong right-wing movements in Greece, Holland and a number of other states.

Even in Germany, which the crisis affected least of all, the new party (created two years ago), which is fundamentally in favor of withdrawing from the eurozone, received an 4,5% in the last election.

All these examples prove that a very powerful Euroscepticism movement has arisen within Europe, which casts doubt on the very foundations of the EU’s existence.

This does not mean that it is falling apart, but it means that inside the European Union there is a rethinking of the state and the very model of the European Union.

From here and the extremely unconvincing policy of the European Union concerning Ukraine. What the EU has offered is an absolutely scandalous proposal: “We will give you our standards, allocate assistance for the development of democratic institutions and give an opportunity to convince ourselves that you will join Europe sometime.”

Ukraine offered the European myth. In exchange, it was necessary to release Yulia Tymoshenko, raise gas tariffs for the population, tighten the belts in fiscal policy, accept IMF loans under tough economic requirements. In fact, it offered a direct path to financial default and to extreme social instability.

Why did the EU put forward unattractive offers? I believe that in the West a certain complex of super-full value is preserved in relation to a number of states, in particular, Eastern Europe. The West has convinced itself that it is an ideal model, and people in pursuit of European myth should automatically agree with everything that the European Union offers.

In Ukraine, many agree to follow the path proposed by the EU. But this path is, in general, nowhere. Ukraine, no one offers to join the EU, the association leads to dependence, EU officials will have the right to interfere in the internal affairs of Ukraine. It would turn into an economic semi-colony of the European Union.

The EU was unable to give Ukraine 20 billion euros due to lack of funds. The European Union is very overworked, extinguishing crises in other EU countries.

The European Union was not up to the mark of the tasks that confronted him, if he really wanted to get Ukraine into the sphere of influence of the EU - this is the essence of the Eastern Partnership. It was not possible to get Armenia either: Brussels was shocked to learn that Yerevan would not sign the association agreement.

Russia showed the ability to use not only the financial leverage that we now have, but also rather subtle enough to carry out the diplomatic line. We offered financial assistance to Ukraine, without putting any political demands before it, which is always painfully perceived by nations (unlike the EU and the US, which dictated political conditions to Ukraine). About her accession to the Customs Union while we are not talking.

Russia in Ukraine, both politically and morally, has a much more advantageous position than the West, which reacted hysterically and actually called for the Maidan to overthrow the leadership of Ukraine.

So the year ends for Russia "on a strong note." This shows both a slight increase in our capabilities, and a weakening of the main centers of power that previously defined the international agenda - first of all, the United States and the European Union.

          Our country is building the Vostochny cosmodrome and developing new types of rocket engines and launch vehicles, while retaining unconditional world leadership in the number of space launches.

          Our country continues to open new productions, including the introduction of industrial giants: “NLMK-Kaluga” - 2000 jobs, “UGMK-Steel” in Tyumen - 1000 jobs, GOK “White Mountain” - 1000 jobs, Amur Hydrometallurgical Plant "- 1200 jobs," Mikheevsky GOK "- 1200 jobs and many others.

          This year our country drew a new “Russian cross” - only now the birth curve has crossed the mortality curve and rushed up, not down, as before.

          Our country is not buckled under the dictatorship imposed on her matrix minorities and did not abandon their principles.

          Our country has started formation of an alternative worldview that is gaining momentum and starts to win fans in the West itself, threatening to break the current ideological monopoly.
          The Trans-Siberian and Baikal-Amur highways will be modernized with this money and will tie the country with a steel rope, as the weightlifter’s belt compresses his lower back before decisive access to the platform. The construction of a grand transport project, the Amuro-Yakutsk Highway, is nearing completion. Our country raked into its arms the last undisclosed treasure of the planet - the Arctic, painfully clicking on the nose with all those who disagree. The unique Prirazlomnaya drilling platform has been launched, the Temp military airfield has been restored, Arctic brigades are being created, an international airport and a seaport are being built on Yamal, and infrastructure is being prepared for the export of liquefied natural gas. Our country is completing the construction of a breakthrough project - a floating nuclear power plant, which will power remote areas of the Arctic and the Far East. Our country is building new icebreakers that have no analogues in the world in order to master another trump card - the Northern Sea Route.

          This is in addition to the above.

            Citizen, did you do something for your domestic plants to appear? No.
            So it turns out that all the prizes are only scribbles to write, but the power to condemn. But they don’t hit finger on finger ...
            Somehow, someone has to create it ... amazing.
            Moreover, often those who now condemn the authorities and ask the question "where are our factories" themselves actively participated in the collapse of the USSR in 91 and 93. Just like now, they took to the Soviet regime, supported Yeltsn, went out into the streets ... and so on.
            Now these dissatisfied though destroy the Russian Federation.

              "S. M. Ignatiev, leaving the post of chairman of the Central Bank of Russia, which held his record eleven years (and before that as Deputy Minister of Economy, First Deputy Minister of Finance of Russia, in a word), made a sensational statement that in the past, 2012, from Russia $ 49 billion was illegally transferred to foreign accounts (Vedomosti, No. 28, February 20, 2013) “This may be payment for drug shipments, gray imports, bribes and kickbacks to officials, managers purchasing in large private companies. schemes for tax evasion ", - SM Ignatiev believes. Of this amount, $ 14 billion falls on trade operations, the rest - on capital transactions, which are called" doubtful "in the balance of payments and are included in capital outflow, net outflow capital in 2012 amounted to 56,8 billion dollars, "dubious transactions" - 35,1 billion dollars, it turns out that 60 percent of the money flowed out of Russia was taken out illegally. As a result of such operations, the country's budget, according to S.M. Ignatiev, received about 450 billion rubles less, and taking into account internal illegal operations (through one-day firms) - more than 600 billion. This amount is comparable to the volume of all federal spending on education or health care - 604 billion and 614 billion rubles in 2012.

              More than half of the volume of suspicious transactions is carried out by firms directly or indirectly connected with each other by payment relations. “One gets the impression that they are all controlled by one well-organized group of people,” S.M. Ignatiev, convinced that with a serious concentration of efforts on the part of law enforcement agencies, these persons, as well as beneficiaries of dubious operations, can be found. Neither the Presidential Administration nor the Russian government commented on the thunderous statement of the country's chief financier, whose competence no one would ever doubt. This sensational statement had no political consequences. "

              well, you yourself show the "attic" while sitting in a country house in Finland
              board production in Russia by years:
              1990 - over 80;
              2013 - more than 30 ...

              Is this an increase?
              In my city there were a lot of serious factories from machine tools to the most modern electronic at that time!
              There is nothing now. One trade, markets, only a few sites for the domestic production of parquet and glass for the needs of the city ...
              AND ALL !!!
              People loitering idle without work. Addiction, banditry.
              Young people become radical Islamists, go into the woods.
              Young people see injustice. Some change expensive cars in a day, have several villas, and most of the horseradish without salt eats up ... Why such an injustice?
              Hence the hatred. Wahhabs and security forces shoot each other almost every day.
              I have already lived my life; I, as it were, do not need anything.
              But ordinary, not "golden" youth have practically no prospects, due to the lack of work.
              After the war, devastation and desolation are understandable.
              But why, after the artificial destruction of the USSR, industry has not been restored in 20 years, so that we are self-sufficient and not dependent on the West in terms of goods and products?
              As well as currencies! We absolutely do not need the circulation of the dollar and the euro on the territory of the country!
              In whose hands is the central bank?

            14 / 15 of all industries turned out to be abroad (in the CIS) after the collapse of the USSR. And, if we compare Russia with the 1 / 15 economy of the USSR, then Russia overtook the RSFSR and was not even sickly.
            So do not speculate with concepts.

                I’m embarrassed to ask, and who do you think is decent on the top? request They cannot be there by definition, since in the general mass of thieves any decent person is dangerous - he cannot be kept on the hook. I know one head of the Department of the Federal Treasury, in his early thirties he showed phenomenal abilities in the part of embezzlement and bribery, and for these "merits" he was transferred to work in Moscow from the regional government. This is very burdensome for him, because, according to him, "even his great-grandchildren may not work until the end of their lives," and he, the poor fellow, has to take the first flight to work in Moscow every Monday. hi

                The collapse of the country began in 1983. Yes, there are many problems and parasites of every caliber, too, but you cannot take revenge all in one heap. With the "skins" from the top, I often met in Soviet-depot times, but this was not noticeable to the general eye and was strongly hushed up (mutual responsibility).
                We have experienced a change of formations in our country since the 1991 of the year, and during this period there are always sticks and grabbers. This is a common and temporary phenomenon when a political system changes. But the most unpleasant thing in this situation is that it was precisely those who were close to the party elite under the USSR, who were in the shadow, and naturally their children, too, seized the popular good.
                But the most important thing is that thought is material and you should not often bear a negative about your country.
                By our negativity we do more harm than any obvious enemy of Russia.
                Sorry if I offended, but I hate those who carry all heresy about Russia and worst of all, when they do it from the inside.
                If you want to defeat the enemy - take pity on him and he will be doomed to death or to total deprivation of all good ... Therefore, before incurring negativity against your country, you need to think a hundred times whether it is worth doing it.

            The SSJ100 proved to be more than wonderful in Mexico. Pilots are very satisfied, air carriers too. Moreover, the aircraft is cheaper than its competitors. Pressure on him, true from all sides and all sorts of rotten information stuffing, too. Nobody wants to give up the market. Nevertheless, contracts are already available for 200 aircraft.
            Say that the whole filling is foreign? Well, not all at once. The main thing is to make a READY product, and then gradually change to a domestic filling. By the way, here are powerful shifts. The Russians invented a fundamentally new aircraft braking system based on fundamentally new alloys. Will be put on SSJ100

              can you recall how many aircraft were built in the USSR? and therefore flaunting a few dozen superjets is not even serious. in general, look around even at home around and name objects produced in Russia. And you should not send us to the beginning of the 90s, because the industry in Russia has received, though not the most modern, but not the most backward, and what has been done with it? Yes, almost everything is destroyed.

                Happy New Year dear Vladimir anyway:
                We must pay tribute to the Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company (SCAC) and personally to M.A. Poghosyan: they managed to do what hardly anyone believed at the beginning of the year - to fly 2013 newly built Sukhoi SuperJet SSJ24 aircraft into the air in 100.

                24-th aircraft Sukhoi SuperJet SSJ100 built 2013 year began flight tests in Komsomolsk-on-Amur 30 December - they became the board with the serial number 95048. It became the 46 built by the SSJ100 (including flight prototypes). The aircraft is intended for the Mexican airline Interjet and should become its 11-m board SSJ100. Interjet signed a contract to acquire 20 SSJ100 aircraft (with an option for 10) in January 2011, and during the 2013 year it received the first four aircraft.

                http://bmpd.livejournal.com/704621.html


                22-th aircraft Sukhoi SuperJet SSJ100 built 2013 year (serial number 95045, temporary registration 97010). This is the ninth SSJ100 for the Mexican airline Interjet. The plane was lifted into the air in Komsomolsk-on-Amur 22.12.2013.

But Russia will not allow this, and the Black Sea fleet in Crimea !!! Then they turned on the script for a fool, promise everything, and not give nothing, maybe they peck ???

          This is called half-truth or liberalism, when from a huge array of achievements, they choose the most decorative things at first glance, such as Cancel "mobile slavery" and mumble that they say they found something to be proud of ... In addition, the first Russian smartphone with several patents was born, a new missile carrier, it was established mass production of civilian airliners, records on arms deliveries over the past 2 with more than years, records in construction, sports, foreign policy, thousands of new schools and new kindergartens, hospitals, an increase in the birth rate, a drop in mortality, leadership in the construction of nuclear power plants around the world, leadership in space launches, the most ambitious military exercises, heroism in the fight against the elements and still very, very much, but fearing a break in the template, these pseudo-patriots are ready to see only homeless people, corrupt officials, terrorist attacks, disasters and so on, proudly declaring that they are dirtying their country only out of a feeling of partiotism.

          Separately, about mobile slavery, drive in the USA and find out that slavery in the USA has not been canceled, and changing a telecom operator is not only dreary, but also expensive, not cheap at all, but why? Because the lobby ... you’ll cancel the hoen, so this law is also an achievement, though it’s not as big as YaRS or Superjet

          An acquaintance after the institute opened a company, hires workers for a six-month probationary period, pays them a salary of 5 tr. with a promise after the expiration of the term to pay all 50 tr., esessno after the end of the term he dismisses everyone and hires new ones, he receives contracts from state institutions through a friend in the administration, plus he receives various grants as a "young entrepreneur", "for the development of small business" , so the office lives. And if you work as an honest businessman, you will be bent from the oppression of the checking authorities and the same administration.

            You are not telling stories here. There are no checks. These stories are for fools of fans of bulk. I am the owner of two legal entities that have been operating for several years. Act legally and everything will be in order. The state only needs taxes to be paid. If your friend was able to organize a desk sitting on a budget, then the price was worthless.

              To be sure that you are working legally, you need to know the laws, but for fun, open the "Guarantor" or "Consultant" and estimate how long it will take to study everything. Your life is not enough. "Act legally and everything will be all right" - a phrase from the category of fantasy. Even with the most sincere desire to act legally, this is impossible. Check, for example, in what form is workwear taken into account at your company?
              I will say more, there are norms that have been in force for the 1936 of the year that no one has canceled, but finding them is already a problem, so when you carefully examine your confidence in the full legitimacy of the activity, it is more likely the result of ignorance. Although it’s nice to know that there are people who share their views on the need to comply with the law.

        Not a drop in production, but slowdown in productionthat we can see all over the world, and most importantly in the EU.

        Power has already shown its impotence to so many, in America with its allies still a point hurts. It hurts both Navalny and his USAID sponsors.

        I just can’t understand the anti-nationality of the authorities ... Ukraine is clearly visible. This topic has already been chewed a thousand times.

        Probably due to lack of prospects every year Departure of citizens for permanent residence abroad decreases ... from a few hundred thousand in 90x and the beginning of 2000x to today's 50 000.

        A bit of general information on the topic.
        According to a Gallup poll, the number of people wishing to leave Russia in 2008 was 17%. For comparison, at that time, 27% of respondents wanted to leave Germany and Great Britain.

        It should be borne in mind that by now the situation in Europe has worsened greatly. So, according to the Evening Standart, about 65% of young Britons are thinking about leaving Britain, while 52% are seriously planning a move.

      Putin is trying to tame a country that actually does not like Russia much more than any of the NATO countries. Personally, I have been to many countries of Europe, and have never met so much negative towards Russia and the Russians as in Ukraine. And the most perverted ideas about Russian reality are not in the damned West, but in Ukraine. To make an ally from such a country? Is it possible? And why is this even necessary?

Many Europeans, not knowing that I am Russian, speak about obviously provocative questions about Russia (even from me), if not with admiration, then at least, sooooo positively. Often they do not understand some points in the decisions made, but this is their right to be misled.

        Foreign policy is directly related to the attacks in Volgograd. Who is the main financier of terrorist attacks? Qatar and the SA, who according to the data presented on the same site takes the second place in the acquisition of Russian weapons? the same Qatar and the CA are not far behind. So who are we arming? Enemies, or can someone make them friends? Then what is the policy of arming enemies? Yes, Putin received the title of Man of the Year, but at the same time, Russia's respect and influence in the world has not grown. Although someone may think differently. To consider though does not mean at all what exactly is.

    Respecting Pushkov as an excellent journalist, nevertheless, his new role in singing praises is not delightful. Yes, Russia has won at this moment, but do not forget that the country is economically weak and the temporary retreat of capitalist sharks should not be ignored. One must be prepared for their counteroffensive. And what can Russia offer, besides protecting traditional values, can social justice ?, can there be no corruption ?, can a decent old age and a solution to housing problems ?, better education, medical care ?. So rejoicing in the occasions is not enough.

      The point is, as it seems to me, that Pushkov is no longer acting as a journalist, but as a functionary built into the system of power and, accordingly, one can trace how the transmission of Postscript has changed ... In his current position, journalism is not welcome, you have to play by the established rules, otherwise you can lose your position for "unenthusiastic way of thinking." And here's another characteristic feature - the more problems accumulate inside the country, the more attention is paid to foreign policy - hence the various large-scale foreign policy initiatives, conferences, forums, etc. This was also under the late Brezhnev and was especially pronounced in the era of Gorbachev .. Here and today there is a clear imbalance between the undoubted successes in the international arena and very serious economic problems within the country, which had to be solved yesterday ... And it is very doubtful that the DAM and his team will be able to find the right solution, but they would not play too these armchair strategists on our heads ...

      -VVP really fit together (I'm proud of it), the Yankees disrespect and spit on them (at the level of the common people) is VASSALS of the USA! And to Russians (all former USSR) the attitude is respectful! It's a fact!

      Unfortunately, the policy of the country is not determined by the people and their real opinion ...

    The article is full agitation and propaganda. Why did this State Duma deputy keep silent about the increase in his own salary, when ordinary citizens see such amounts only in a dream (I must say that in the whole of the former USSR there are millions of people who complain every year for small salaries. strange people are these deputies. I would like their small salaries) laughing. Everything was completely mixed up. It came out as if everyone in the world had been saved.

    Mr. State Duma deputy !! WHEN ARE YOU FINALLY ABOUT OWN CITIZENS THINKING STARTING ??

    (The question also concerns deputies of parliament, parliaments, mejlises of the former USSR). People aren’t tired of hanging noodles. People do not care about lists. They want to live normally !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! am

          In vain you are so negative about all the deputies. Among them, the majority of fair and honest people. But without shit, as elsewhere, of course it does.
          One of the tasks of Western propaganda is to undermine faith in the Russian government. Now an excellent result has been achieved of Western propaganda, even the squeaky cur of a pooch is in power.
          In the early 90s, the okhayivanie power ended in the collapse of the country.

          I think that if EVERYONE of us does exactly what he says here, it will also lead to a positive result.
          To be a member of the home parliament (or even a president ?!) is a lot. For example, the area of ​​my "vital interests" includes the entrance of the house where I live, a section of the courtyard adjacent to the entrance. Believe me, alkans do not eat hanku, homeless people do not like flophouses. Neighbors, living above and below, observe the silence mode from 22:00 to 08:00.
          You just need to want to.
          Happy holiday!

    Russia in Ukraine, both politically and morally, has a much more advantageous position than the West
    Again, I felt this when I recently visited Ukraine here. It blows right in the local sayings. 2 days, of course, is not an indicator, but they promised to invite more. For longer. It is then that I will make up a fairly complete impression ...

    Actually, the world is on the edge. The Third World War has been going on for a long time in a sluggish form and is just waiting for the next "Fuhrer" to transfer it into a hot phase. Sadly, those who represent the Three Hundred Committee will certainly appoint it as soon as they need it. As for the situation in Ukraine, our enemies, who are now for some reason called "partners", have achieved their goal! Namely, as Bismarck bequeathed, they divided a single great people, found traitors among the elite of this new formation (this is not only Yushchenko, but every last one, his predecessors and followers, including Yanukovych) and incited the Little Russians, renamed Ukrainians (for the first time publicly in ethnographically, this word was used by the Austro-Hungarians in 1916, and has been used non-publicly since 1898) in Russians like themselves, called yami. By the way, Shevchenko TG himself was there, since he served the Moscow Tsar. (It is no coincidence that Oles Buzina, who officially calls himself Russian and Little Russian, calls Shevchenko a ghoul). So, on the "Ukrainian front, everything is very difficult for us! Only the return of Ukraine as border territories to Russia can solve this problem, but for this it is necessary that all Little Russians perceive themselves as Little Russians and go to Russia. Unfortunately, in our state is not doing anything to make this happen.Billions that Russia gives to its outskirts, as it were, in debt, in fact, will remain there and no one will return any debts. This is the psychology, alas, not of Little Russians, but of Ukrainians! So, if we want to find something in Ukraine (the word "border" is written with a small letter), we must not just throw money, but make it clear to the inhabitants of this territory , who speaks Russian almost entirely, that they cannot do without Russia!

    Pushkov is wrong, Magnitsky’s law is in effect, accounts are frozen, and Dima Yakovlev is just a letter on paper, all of our bureaucratic b-goodness keeps its loot over the hill, because they are true patriots of Russia, not like us, here you can click on them, here they are the weakest link for our country

    Gentlemen, "procrastinators", take for example the same EU - there are Germany, France, B-Britain, but there are other countries that live completely "not in chocolate" (ie peripheral). And only a STRONG (in the world sense) state can build a normal domestic policy, otherwise others will "build" it.
    Happy New Year! May our aspirations and hopes come true.

    We must praise each other more. We can scold to perfection. You yourself will not praise who will praise. Success should be big, but small. Articles must be written longer, but shorter. The policy is harder, but softer. Speak out loud but quietly. Then everyone will be happy. In general, it’s easier to become smart than to stop being a fool.

    And this Russia for whom? For 120 million Russians or for someone else? And who needs just such a Russia, and not with a Russian face?

    The year ended with the blood of Russian people: Russian children, women, men. Pushkov did not hear about this, apparently. Or is the State Department to blame, not those for whom Russia is not for Russians, but for migrants and their employers?

    I want to trust the assessments of the political scientist A. Pushkov - he writes (speaks) in a balanced, reasoned, patriotic manner. Some of Russia's 50 achievements are debatable (ephemeral). And why should the “bloating” of the already exorbitant salaries of “fat” officials and deputies be attributed to achievements or to crimes? - Rather, to flagrant and screaming violations of financial "ethics".

    I imagine that our grandfathers would have told you this, blurt out something like that in 1942. Like, the Nazis trample on our land, the Government is to blame for everything. It was in 1942m, because 1941 is already over for us.
    Is Russia not for Russians? Well, she was always not only for Russians, but also for Pushkin (half-Negro), Suvorov (half-Tatar), Bagration (Georgians), Bering (Scot), Belingshausen (German) ... continue the list or you already Guess what I mean?

    Disputes about who has a longer barrel are productive. No words, a lot has been done lately, but this is only a small percentage of what our country needs. We are catastrophically lagging behind in the development and production of top-level technologies, and the production base is being updated extremely slowly due to the complete defeat of the machine tool industry. And, almost the main thing, the factor of embezzlement is huge. You can not immediately grab one hand for Sissy and pussy, but you need to focus on the main thing. But the main thing is to decide the government, not the bazaar. Happy New Year to you, fellow countrymen. stop
