Yu.Krupnov: “There is a total bureaucratic degeneration”

Yu.Krupnov: “There is a total bureaucratic degeneration”What is happening in Crimea has nothing to do with the policy of “soft power”


The head of the Federal Agency for the Affairs of the Commonwealth of Independent States, Compatriots Living Abroad and International Humanitarian Cooperation (Rossotrudnichestvo) Konstantin Kosachev gave an interview to Vedomosti, where he summed up most of the disappointing results of his structure, which were quite badly managed to retouch “Yes, but ...”, “but we do not care ...”, “despite this ...” and other rhetorical anesthesia.

The main question - who needs such “rossotrudnichestvo”, is hung in the air in silent reproach. The confession took place, can I continue working?

KM.RU political analyst, chairman of the supervisory board of the Institute for Demography, Migration and Regional Development Yury Krupnov presented his assessment of the work of Russia in the Ukrainian sector:

“In fact, we should talk about the absolute failure of our work in Ukraine and seriously ask ourselves what lies at its core, what is the root of the problem.” But let's at least examine what lies on the surface: the very concept of “soft power” has been used by us for the past two years, while in the USA it has been around for twenty years, no less.

All events in Ukraine - a visible embodiment of the failure of our "Mordodel" -polittekhnologov

The repetition of the “backs” of American and Anglo-Saxon geopolitics only emphasizes its complete absence in our country, as well as the absence of a coherent ideology that would allow us to effectively defend our interests in the world.

We must honestly realize that there is total bureaucratic degeneration, which could not escape including Rossotrudnichestvo. At the same time, whatever is done in the domestic and foreign arenas, whatever toolkit is involved - all this is done, ultimately, in the interests of the oligarchs, who only annoy people and clearly do not strengthen the overall authority of the authorities in the eyes of the people.

All the events that took place in Ukraine over the past 10 years, starting with the well-known Orange Revolution, are only a visible embodiment of the failing work of our "Mordodels" -polittekhnologov, for which the government allocated and allocated enormous, huge budget money. These mordobily actually manage, among other things, Rossotrudnichestvo and other structures, since behind this there are large financial flows, the development of which has become an end in itself.

Our opponents have serious strategic planning, but we do not

Yes, Russia's position on the Crimea is brilliant, yes, it is definitely a victory. But all this has nothing to do with either the policy of “soft power” or the activities of “mordodelov.” All this is connected solely with the correct tactical and situational decisions of Putin, as well as the process of Russian self-determination in the Crimea.

But if you look at the situation as a whole, then we must clearly understand that the Crimea with two million inhabitants is not such a big “consolation prize” against the background of the loss of Ukraine’s 43-million remains, and, in the long run, the West’s fortifications Ukraine is not only soft power, but also tough. I mean the almost inevitable NATO bases on the border with the Belgorod, Rostov, Voronezh regions ...

All the endless lamentations of our political scientists that the terrible bad West has invested 5 billions of dollars in non-profit organizations in Ukraine and thereby predetermined what is happening there now are simply ridiculous. What are these 5 billions when we had to invest in pro-Russian organizations not 5, but all 500 billions of dollars ?! But no one did. And all this talk about the bad West, which prevents us from fully supporting Ukraine, just eloquently shows that our opponents have serious strategic planning, but we don’t.

    "But if we look at the situation as a whole, we must clearly understand that Crimea with two million inhabitants is not such a big" consolation prize "against the background of the loss of 43 million remnants of Ukraine, as well as, in the future, the strengthening of the West in Ukraine, not only soft power, but also hard power. I mean practically inevitable NATO bases on the border with the Belgorod, Rostov, Voronezh regions ... "

    Well, as for me, it's too early to talk about the loss. Putin can show miracles (please do not confuse with Western tricks). We'll see.

      No, they didn't miss, in general the author of the "+" - ", Kosachev should be removed from office, a strategic partner should be missed, and I'm sure it's not about 5 lard, they would have given it. In 2007 they just didn't know where to put the money
      So the importance of the issue has not been conveyed, the situation is fixable, though it itself will eventually find a crack, but if it weren’t for the bureaucrat-follower, the southeast would be ours five years ago.

        NOT . Just a minus. In the project "Ukraine1991" really more was invested through gas, quotas for products and direct investments, just look at the oligarchs and Yulia, who rose on gas. And all our creakles have been built for 23 years, together with the leadership of Ukraine under the motto "Ukraine is not Russia, "the new Velikoukr people, constantly poked at us that we should understand that this is a foreign state with a new, until the village unknown people, who trace their roots back to the creators of the earthly civilization of reproaches. And now, when all this shalman is" Ukraine 1991 " came to a logical conclusion, suddenly saw the light! But after all, the kreakl does not say that for 23 years they did the wrong thing, he wants to really have a budget that is not measured for the continuation of his kreakl action. ,, I spend the last ruble in Sochi, I dashed off a telegram - send money, I’ll finish it off, I laughed at all of them.number "Vital Activity"

          That's for sure. The current state of affairs in Ukraine is the surrender of their interests to the West. So, what can we say about the long-term work of the fat "mole" or "moles". In principle, what's the difference for Thunderbolts and F-15s where to start, from Bagerovo (Kerch) or from Kanatovo (Kirovograd). It is warm there - a resort, and there it is the center of Ukraine - the same way to fly anywhere.

        "The southeast would have been ours five years ago." With one amendment - if 40 out of 43 million think that "my hut is on the edge", "maybe it will come off anyway", and in general, "we have been feeding Russia for hundreds of years" (and this, I note, I heard even from OWN RELATIVES in Ukraine, since the early 1970s !!!), THEN no Rossotrudnichestvo has done anything and will not do anything.

        All the porridge in Ukraine is now being brewed only so that the East really woke up from the nonsense like "hey, don't jump that b" and took up his mind. They will not take it - that's it, the Northern and Fluffy will be very soon.

      Tallinn Mayor Edgar Savisaar, however, believes that the issue of the legitimacy or illegitimacy of the referendum in Crimea is not so important. In his opinion, it is important to think about people - so that they are happy with his results, RIA Novosti reports.

      Estonia has already started talking differently. Already good.

    Unfortunately, it is difficult to disagree with most of Yuri's conclusions (although the general tone of the article is excessively pessimistic). Crimea is certainly an unconditional victory, but it’s a spoon of honey in a tar barrel. But friends we will believe in the best, especially since the first step in the right direction has been taken.

        I agree. About ten years ago it was impossible to imagine such a thing. I just watched the speech of the GDP and could not hold back my tears, although I do not suffer from excessive sentimentality. Although I will say honestly in the elections I voted against GDP, now I sincerely thank him for this hope for the revival of the Russian world. His actions last year, he put himself on a par with the greatest national leaders of Russia. Now the main thing is not to drown in euphoria, and having made the necessary conclusions, consider today's events only the beginning, you can not stop. I don’t know how at the government level, but for myself personally, I and my family will celebrate each year as a holiday.

      Everything is correct. However, you yourself confirm that the train started. Conclusions will be made and are being done already. Over the past 25 years, the West has taught us a lot and the pink glasses with the Made in Usa label, imposed on us by Gorbachev and Yeltsin, we will no longer dress.

    That's just humanly sad, everything was transferred to money. Well, it would be a strange people, but it turns out that you have to give the "brother" 500 lard so that he remains a brother for you. Judas - for 5 lard a knife in the back.

    I completely agree with the author, and he himself has repeatedly noted that the policy of the Russian Federation in Ukraine and the CIS as a whole has failed. Crimea as a part of Russia is NOT thanks, but contrary to the actions or inaction of the Kosachovs, etc.
    Yes, Russia's position on the Crimea is brilliant, yes, it is definitely a victory. But all this has nothing to do with either the policy of “soft power” or the activities of “mordodelov.” All this is connected solely with the correct tactical and situational decisions of Putin, as well as the process of Russian self-determination in the Crimea.

    I especially agree with this paragraph. Crimean Victoria became possible precisely thanks to the self-organization of the Russians and the correct actions of Putin (honor, he is for this, and praise). But Russia's actions were based on a situation that developed thanks to other forces, and not in any way as a result of purposeful work. In the rest of the South-East, Putin's reaction was not enough, although in the first week of March, in my opinion, it was worth the risk. Now time has passed, and there are more and more signs that power has emerged in Kiev, whether we like it or not. And this government, unlike the Yanukovychs, is not going to leave, and takes control of the South-East. Scattered, betrayed by the local authorities, the Russians, who are losing leaders and the most active, can hardly oppose Kiev without outside help. "Soft power" is not effective in such conditions, but something needs to be done. Otherwise, against the background of the South and East left for the inevitable banderization, by right the newly acquired Crimea will really turn out to be just a "consolation prize".

      And I can ask you, a person who is quite sensible, how these "correct actions" were expressed and could they be different in the current situation? I repeat, but personally I believe that Russian Crimea is not at all the fruit of the efforts of the "leader" but the result of the self-organization of the Russian population, which felt a real threat to its existence after the bandits came to power, and of course the support of the rest of Russia. To believe that this support is solely the result of the Kremlin's instructions is to regard your own people as cattle. Rather, the Kremlin was forced to step on the throat of its own song, because if he took a position convenient for the West, they could endure as Yanukovych. As for the author, he is not much different from the same Kosachev, and is concerned with only one thing, getting budget funds. For both of them are "political scientists" that is, swindlers.

    It does not seem to say. Ukrainian politicians (at the prompt from the west) are already changing their tactics of communication with the Southeast. They promise anything to win time. And time works for them. If they can dissociate themselves from the radicals or at least drive them out to the national guard, that's all. They are white and fluffy. The wave of protests will subside. And Russia will become the main enemy of Ukraine, including for the majority of its population.

    Crimea and Sevastopol is only the beginning of the road, convincing but the beginning, I will not go deep into the geopolitical strategy, but in the south-east of Ukraine in many ways now it is necessary to self-determine by the forces of the inhabitants themselves.
    Of course, our government should not say "uff we made them" support, both moral, informational and, if possible, material should go constantly to Donbass and Kharkov and to everyone who wants to live as a person and not as a banderlog.

    Unfortunately, the author is right that there is no attractive ideology in Russia that could become the basis for integration processes. A union on an economic-capitalist basis like the "Eurasian Union" initially loses to the West, because the entire financial capitalist system is controlled by the West and operates according to the principles that are formed by the West. Yes, in the situation with Crimea, the Russian authorities showed predictable unanimity, because here the strategic interests of the state, the financial interests of Russian oligarchs and the aspirations of the common people coincided, and there could be no other outcome. But in domestic politics, the oligarchic power shows complete indifference to the people of Russia, pursuing only their own selfish financial interests. The overall rise in prices, the unprecedented, the world's highest growth in utility tariffs, corruption, unemployment and social stratification in Russia are colossal. The privatization of strategic assets continues, plans for 2014 include the sale of most of the assets of Sberbank, VTB, Russian Railways, Aeroflot, Rosneft and other state actors. participation. If under Yeltsin there were 4 dollar billionaires in Russia, then under Putin there were more than 140 of them, and many of them are Putin's personal friends. As an ideology, people are trying to plant a slightly edited disgusting slogan of the tsarist autocracy "Orthodoxy, autocracy, nationality", leading us into the Middle Ages. There was a complete degradation of education, health care, clericalization and moronization of society. The system of state power, law enforcement and judicial systems is rotten through and through, it is saturated with corruption and nepotism.
    In my opinion, despite the natural upsurge of patriotic sentiment among the population, due to the annexation of Crimea, in a possible upcoming confrontation with the West, we cannot survive without a turn to socialist values, without abandoning a capitalist, liberal economy working in the interests of a narrow circle of oligarchs and financial tycoons fused with bureaucracy.

      The source of all ills is private big business.
      The largest owner should be only the state.
      But there is a contradiction, the main source of development is also large private capital.
      How to divide large private capital into smaller pools, how to effectively distribute them or transfer them to whom to transfer?
      I must admit that the liberal-economic idea failed in the Russian Federation, but there is no other clearly articulated idea.
      "Business must be socially oriented" is complete nonsense, it does not owe anyone anything, its task is to make a profit. Another thing is that the size of business and business participation should not exceed a certain level. Why in the city of 10 "Magnets" where to go 100 individual entrepreneurs who were squeezed out by large capital
      Our oligarchs are studying the Ukrainian experience and will certainly draw conclusions to strengthen their positions. Our state also needs to learn from the situation in Ukraine, but unfortunately I’m not sure that the conclusions will be correct.
      The presence of oligarchs is also beneficial for the state, in reality there are not so many of them, there are no more than 10 ultimate owners of the entire national property, it is much easier to agree with 10 people on an acceptable disposition and on its support than to agree with all citizens of the country.
      Whether the state will be able to break this vicious system is unlikely.
      The state authorities have no incentive to do this, but our people are fragmented, corrupted by consumerism and will not be able to clearly formulate their social request for power in the short historical period.
