Military Review

Russia moves south


In the conditions of the intensified aggression of the West, Russia's priorities in foreign policy shifted: relations and trade relations with the European Union and the United States should be in the background. Russia now has new partners - strong and independent regional players, most of which are dynamically developing countries in Asia. One of the most important allies of the new Russia is Iran, which can become a reliable pillar of Russian diplomacy in the Middle East.

From energy to politics

Moscow and Tehran are close to signing several key agreements in the energy and economic spheres. In particular, an agreement will be concluded on the supply of Russian goods to Iran in exchange for Iranian oil. The contract value is 20 billion dollars. In accordance with the agreement, about two thousand barrels of “black gold” will be shipped to Russia daily for two or three years.

The documents necessary for signing the contract are almost ready. It remains only to find a compromise solution on the issue of the price of raw materials. The contract for the purchase of Iranian oil is important to both parties. Iran is required to sell "black gold" bypassing the trade embargo imposed by Western countries, and Russia wants to weaken the dollar's position in the international payments system.

But energy cooperation is not limited to re-exporting Iranian oil. Iran intends to strengthen its energy security, and is preparing to build two nuclear power plants in Bushehr. The construction of power plants will take the Russian specialists: the details of the transaction have already been agreed. The agreement will be signed soon by the Director General of Rosatom Sergey Kiriyenko and the head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, Akbar Salehi, during a meeting in Tehran.

The previous agreement between Russia and Iran, concluded as early as 1992, is obsolete and does not take into account current realities. The signing of the new agreement will create the basis for expanded cooperation of countries in the field of nuclear energy.

Thanks to support from Russia, sanctions from the United States and the European Union did not cause significant harm to the Iranian economy. After the 2010 year, when the UN Security Council imposed an embargo on the Islamic Republic, Tehran on trade issues appealed for help to Moscow and Beijing. West refuses to supply weapons to Iran - the country's military department buys weapon in Russia; The West is hindering the free access of Iranian oil — it is being bought out and resold by Russian companies; The West refuses to invest in the development of the Iranian economy - investments come from the Russian Federation and the People's Republic of China.

But oil prices have risen sharply since 2010, and this has hurt the wallets of Western enterprises.

Russia and China did not allow Iran to perish, which was declared a boycott in the West. Now Russia can rightly expect that in case of the introduction of third-level sanctions, the Islamic Republic will help it. The simplest and most obvious way to help Russia is to conclude new agreements, including in the field of arms supplies.

The stronger the pressure from the US and Europe will be, the faster will be the rapprochement between Iran and Russia. The foundation is laid for the creation of a new military-political bloc capable of resisting the offensive of the Western world in the Middle East, in the Caspian region, in the Caucasus and in Eastern Europe.

South Road

The alliance between Iran and Russia is still informal. Many transactions have been concluded between the countries, but there is not a single such agreement that could be called political or defense. Apparently, the signing of such an agreement is a matter of time, and in the coming years may take place historical a meeting of representatives of both states, where a new military-political alliance will be documented.

We should not forget about Syria, which has become close to Iran and Russia since the beginning of the civil war. In the future, this alliance may play a decisive role in the Eastern Mediterranean, because, thanks to the deployment of warships in Syrian ports, strategically significant Aegean and Red seas can be taken under control.

In addition, Syria has open access to Lebanon - one of the key states in the Middle East, from where you can control everything that happens in the region.

True, a potential Russian-Iranian alliance may encounter difficulties with logistics: the United States is doing everything possible to interrupt the land connection between Russia and Iran. First of all, it concerns the Caucasus: the United States is trying to strengthen its influence in Georgia and Azerbaijan to territorially isolate Russia from the Middle East.

It becomes clear why the United States incited the ex-President of Georgia, Mikhail Saakashvili, to unleash a war in South Ossetia: Washington hoped to destroy the states loyal to Russia, thereby creating a solid barrier in the Caucasus. But the plan of America failed - Georgia lost the war, and Azerbaijan learned the right lesson from the adventure of its western neighbor, and is unlikely to go to open confrontation with Russia.

At this stage, Russia's strategic task is the creation of a Transcaucasian corridor leading to Iran. There are two directions to choose from: the first is through Armenia, the second is through Azerbaijan. The first direction is not suitable because Georgia has blocked the way: in spite of the change of leadership of the republic, negotiations with Tbilisi have not yet yielded fruitful results.

However, Armenia has one indisputable advantage - there is a Russian military base there that protects the interests of Moscow in the Transcaucasus. In Yerevan, we are glad that we are under the Russian “umbrella”. If Armenia becomes neutral and announces the cessation of military cooperation with Russia, it will immediately engage in a destructive war with Azerbaijan. The republic's leadership does not want such a development of events and will make every effort to avoid the realization of such a scenario.

The second route through Azerbaijan to Russia is dangerous because it may close over time. Now Baku is pursuing a policy of balancing, trying not to get involved in conflicts with the main players in the region - Russia, Turkey, Iran. But the republic is still to Ankara. Recently, visits of Turkish military officials to the capital of Azerbaijan have become more frequent. This suggests that if a Russian-Iranian union is created, a Turkish-Azerbaijani alliance may emerge, supported by the United States and its allies.

Fortunately, the fragile balance of forces that has developed in the Caucasus makes it possible to avoid a regional confrontation between two or more military-political blocs. However, the aggravation of the situation in Ukraine will inevitably lead to geopolitical changes in the south too: in order to annoy Moscow, the United States and NATO are ready to create difficulties along the entire perimeter of the Russian border. So Washington will be able to disperse the efforts of Russia in different directions.

Therefore, Russia must hurry with the formation of economic alliances. In addition to China, Iran should become a priority ally. At the same time, it is important to take care of the security of the Transcaucasian corridor, including preventing Turkey from including Azerbaijan in its sphere of influence, as well as preventing such aggressive politicians as Mikheil Saakashvili from taking power in Georgia.

It is necessary to ensure reliable protection of Russian interests in the Middle East region, because the signing of economic agreements with Iran is only the first step, the foundation of the future alliance.

    On kissing and rapprochement with the EU and the United States, we must put an end to it. In the context of the expansion of the insatiable NATO and the EU, it is necessary to develop Eurasian Economic Union... Belarus, Russia, Kazakhstan + SE of Ukraine as part of the Russian Federation or as a friendly Federation of Russia + Transnistria. Common currency. Then Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Armenia, Mongolia, perhaps Moldova will change its mind. Then the updated "Warsaw Treaty" for these countries.
    At the same time, strengthen economic ties with BRICS and Iran-
    I think that in the future, the EEC will have a magnet and a foothold for countries that do not like Euro-Atlantic values, the EU and NATO. It is necessary to return a multipolar world.

      One of the most important the allies of new Russia is Irancapable of becoming a reliable pillar of Russian diplomacy in the Middle East.

      If Iran is an ally, why do not we still supply it with C-300? According to the previously signed contract, okay, Medvedev blocked the supply of c-300, but can you put an analogue with-300-Antei-2500, or is Israel and America still influencing the decision? Here it is necessary to make a choice either towards Iran with the delivery of the complex, or continue to delight the West and Israel not by delivering air defense systems to Iran. It is time to decide who is our friend and who is the enemy, history clearly shows who is who. If we want to truly be friends with the union states, then we must keep our word and fulfill the signed contracts.

        It would be nice to redirect the import of fruits and vegetables from Poland and the Baltic states to Iran. I personally do not buy anything if I see what has been done in Poland and the Baltic countries. If there is a choice between Iranian products and Polish I will buy without hesitation Iranian products.

      The "countries" listed in the post are the former Soviet Union! Useful from any Kyrgyz, Tajiks, etc. - ZERO !!! They can only act as raw material appendages! Local aborigines for 23 years of "independence" have already forgotten the Russian language, the same amount of time will pass - and they will climb back onto plane trees! And why are they needed? We need to cooperate with Iran, Iraq, China, India, etc. and not at the level "we have almost reached an agreement and are about to sign an agreement" but denser: "we have agreed, signed!" Again, attract Turkey, playing with "carrots and sticks" on its insult that Europe is not taken, and quietly withdraw it from NATO. To attract Southeast Asia and not only by selling "Sushki". Vietnam, I hope, still remembers about helping him against the United States, but may soon forget. With geyropoy you need to be tougher, not to spoil the shushara PACE has opened its mouth - sanctions against countries that have opened this filthy mouth. Type, revision of contracts on the price and volume of gas supplies. Even if it does not work out, the potential threat of such a gesture will make talkers think. Shprotiy should be boycotted in general, until the SS is banned by law, they make Russians citizens, and Russian is the second state language. Let's see how they will run to geyrope: "Well, Russia does not want to buy theirs and sell them its own!" Again, I do not think that sprat Papuans consume a lot of gas, and their exclusion from supplies will greatly affect Gazprom's revenues (it probably lost more on discounts to Svidomo)

Both republics have a lot of gold, silver, lead, zinc and rare earth elements. All you need is money and a well-functioning security system.

        I sometimes don’t understand people in the West: they just gird up at once, forgetting about all the good that they did to him. Moreover, they are ready to unbelieve even when they are dependent on you for one or another issue if you treat them in a good way. It seems that the aggressiveness brought up since childhood (especially in the USA but I also think in Europe) makes it difficult to behave rationally and ethically. This is manifested not only in politics with them, but also in any professional activity.

    It is necessary to start trading with Iran in rubles, or through clearing settlements. And it’s best to create a supranational non-cash payment unit like a convertible ruble for settlements between the BRICS, EAC, Iran, Syria. Then it’s for sure the dollar, and with it the euro, the US and the EU will collapse.

      It is not necessary to create an artificial unit, it is necessary to use an existing one and make a new reserve currency out of it, as expected. It will be a ruble (which is more pleasant for pride), a yuan or a rupee is not so important. It is important to get away from the dollar as the dominant currency.

        And not at all necessary. It is even harmful and dangerous to make their national currency universal and reserve. Do you think Stalin and his followers Soviet economists were fools? The convertibility of the ruble and its positioning as a reserve currency for world payments will lead us to the same thing that the United States has come to with the dollar now. Free market and conversion is primarily speculation. Clearing settlements on the basis of a supranational non-cash, non-convertible unit of account secured with nominal gold, say 0,5 g. per unit, will not depend on fluctuations in the exchange rate of such a currency in the market, because speculation with it will be impossible. These will be the most honest and fair calculations, where the money will be used precisely as a means of exchanging goods, and not as goods and means of enrichment and accumulation.

    Europe, sorry, geyropa and the USA betrayed us, therefore, there should not be looking for friends. In the North, everything is captured. Moving south is very logical! You can recapture Turkey from NATO (anyway, we invest heavily in it), look at the possibilities of returning the relations that were under Gamal Abdel Nasser with Egypt, bring Syria as close as possible, to the extent that it is included in Russia so that all kinds of predators do not cling, to return to the Russian world the Serbs, Balkan and European Slavs, and possibly Greece - the basis - Orthodoxy and the fact that Russia adopted Christianity from the Greeks (Byzantium), all the more so since it’s quite possible to buy them now. and we will teach them how to work - we will hire them at our construction sites instead of Tajiks and Uzbeks. To probe the possibility of a closer rapprochement with India, especially since Rama and his cult came there, like Sanskrit, from our places. My late grandfather, a professor at the St. Petersburg Forest Academy, often went on business trips to Persia before the revolution, now it’s Iran, and the Tehran conference was not there by accident - it means something connects us. It is necessary to restore stable mutually beneficial ties. Everything seems more or less clear with Iraq. You should not meddle in Afghanistan. They are dominated by isolationism, so let them live on the sidelines. In general, in the South there is something to see, useful for Russia.

    What the United States has done with Iraq, we should in no case be allowed to do with Iran and Syria. The center of international politics and economics has long begun to shift to the southeast. The Western economy has long been not as attractive as the economy of its eastern neighbors. Russia has always been easier to negotiate with these countries. And the West reminds me of such a leper in whom you look and his purulent wounds open (resolution of same-sex marriage, euthanasia, pedophilia, etc.). We really have nothing to do there, otherwise this virus can reach us. Iraq, Iran, Libya, Syria is a storehouse of minerals (oil and gas) and the one who first drives a peg into their land (supports economically, politically) will be the master of the fuel and energy complex for the next 100 years and, as a result, dictate its rules to the whole world games.

      I support you one hundred percent! Again "economic talk" rushed to count. The same liberalism always considers the economic benefits of friendship, but for some reason it is the liberalism that drives the economy of the country ...
      One thing is important to me personally - their grandfathers, together with my Motherland, defended against the Nazis and the Great Country, which went into space, built.
      By the way, Happy Cosmonautics Day!

    Do not forget about Southeast Asia - not by hearsay, but this winter visited Hong Kong (silisha !!!) just did not understand is China or the state about the western city? Vietnam is developing dynamically and can militarily give a head start to any European country if our Navy and Armed Forces are modernized there. Our military base was - we’ll restore. Amerikosy not for nothing give the APR great importance and call it the future center of World Development! It would be necessary to climb firmly here, and when the tang begins to weaken, then together with China there will be leaders!
    And let the old Europe get older and, under the onslaught of a new wave of black Arabs and Ukrainians, Ukrainians ananise in their PACE and the EU and import LNG from Canada or Africa at least and extract its own shale using hydraulic fracturing and deploy Russian gas 100% to the East!

    Amerov's "dallar" rate is based on speculative oil prices. And that's it! The rest - how and by what means not to lower the gesheft, I have nothing to do with it. He stood backwards, saw nothing. My business is to serve the client. The instrument is mine, but how I will play it and from what material - I am not interested. If someone does not understand, then the course of the world "green" is kept purely at the playing table in the joker. Nobody produces oil and gas, as well as seafood. Take and sell. Only a planned economy can bring down the stock market speculation. And before that, the worst will be for producers. Right "Onatole" - rub. for an idea, 10 for implementation, 100 for a sale. And who sucks blood from whom?

    There will never be alliances with those with whom there is a constant game of discussions. This is all supposedly civilized Europe and the USA, in fact, stupid and impoverished. What to expect from civilizations where there is no normal education, where people consume all of the media that are under those whoever I want to turn that around. Here we get public opinion and the politics of boobies and obscurantists. Moreover, the tendency to increase the number of tyrants in the political arena is obvious.

    I support the opinion that it is necessary to conclude a long-term alliance with Iran for all 100! And I don’t understand why it is logistical difficulties with Iran? We can directly trade through the Caspian Sea and travel to each other!
    The only thing, I still wanted Israel and Iran to stop SO warring. I understand, it sounds like utopia, but it’s time for the Jews, Syrians, Iranians and Iraqis to reconcile. All of them are normal, respecting their traditions and their sovereignty of a nation that simply quarreled with the help of an uncle from behind a hill. I do not tell Jews and Persians to love each other. Just stop the feud. You are not scumbags and lackeys Washington. You are divided, set against each other and now someone rules.
