The United States failed to shake Russia

162



The reunification of the Crimea with Russia was an important milestone in the modern Russian stories and marked the rebirth of a great power - a power capable of defending its interests in the international arena on a par with other leading political players. And, it seems, the Crimea is only the beginning: in the near future, the Eurasian Union will be created, which will strengthen Russia's authority in the eyes of the world community. However, Washington is trying in every way to prevent the implementation of Moscow’s plans: the United States strongly opposes the strengthening of the Russian Federation, because it will create a serious threat to American hegemony in Eastern Europe and Central Asia.

Why does America harm Russia?

The essence of the US strategy in Eurasia is to prevent the emergence of a state or group of states capable of challenging America globally. That is why Washington in every way interferes with the free development of the European Union, and also implements a policy of preventive containment of Russia and China. And most of all in the White House they fear the creation of a Eurasian Union, which the Western media have managed to christen "USSR 2.0".

The latest events in Ukraine are fully consistent with the logic of the White House. If Ukraine joins the Eurasian Union, the economic and military might of the new alliance will be incompatible with that of the current Customs Union and the CSTO. Washington’s goal is to ensure that the industrial complexes and transport infrastructure of the southeast do not go to Moscow. Human resources are no less important: with Ukraine, the mobilization potential of the Eurasian Union will increase by a third. It is necessary to remember about the Soviet legacy - hydroelectric power stations, nuclear power plants and other industrial facilities erected in Ukraine by builders from different parts of the USSR.

It is not surprising that the reunification of the Crimea with the historic homeland agitated politicians from the White House. America’s plan failed: it turned out that it’s not enough to plant people loyal to Washington in Kiev, we must also keep the rest of the country. But, alas, Barack Obama has practically no leverage in Ukraine. Of course, he can call Alexander Turchinov or Arsen Avakov, but who will execute their orders? Practice shows that the powers of the junta are limited to maximum boundaries of the Kiev region.

But if Barack Obama cannot change the development of events in Ukraine, he will try to put pressure directly on Russia. However, here the set of available tools is small. The White House is likely to resort to symbolic gestures like loud statements about the upcoming "tough sanctions", or start talking about all sorts of "red lines" and "recent warnings" that Obama has loved since the beginning of the war in Syria. However, other options are possible, for example, attempts to split Russian society from the inside, as it was done in Ukraine.

Ukrainian script in Russia did not work

What measures did Barack Obama take to “rock the boat”? First of all, the American president introduced pinpoint sanctions against Russian entrepreneurs and officials who have considerable authority and influence both inside the state and beyond. The goal is to provoke grumbling among the representatives of the highest political elite, to force them to renounce the policy pursued by the country's president, Vladimir Putin.

Something similar was managed to turn in Ukraine, when, under the threat of sanctions, many members of parliament opposed Viktor Yanukovych. However, Ukrainian politicians have always been scattered, each of them defends only his narrow interests, and state thinking seems to them to be something strange and inexplicable.

The Russian vertical of power is much stronger and more stable than the Ukrainian horizontal. Moscow really thinks about the future of the country. Personal sanctions against Russian officials were to embroil the political elite of Russia, to restore it against the country's president, Vladimir Putin. But the insidious plan failed: the leadership of the Russian Federation demonstrated cohesion and patriotism, unprecedented for many states of the Western world.

After all, officials are well aware that the United States deliberately impose restrictions against Russian citizens, provoking them. Do not give in to provocations - the best way to avoid negative consequences. The sanctions themselves are not dangerous at all.

The correct line of behavior chosen by the political elite of the country suggests that in the near future the Russian Federation will present many more surprises in the foreign policy arena. After all, from the first battle Russia came out victorious, and even hardened! A country that is monolithic inside will be able to cope with any challenges, regardless of their nature and complexity.

On the "internal front" without change

Rallies, which are periodically held in Moscow, are few and should not cause concern. The United States has long been trying to open an "internal front" against Russia, but all plans fail. Unlike the Ukrainian one, the Russian opposition cannot carry out a coup d'état: the forces are not the same. The 2011-2013 demonstrations revealed that the population of the country does not share the ideas that are popular among the so-called "non-system oppositionists". In addition, Russia does not have its own Galicia, whence tens of thousands of radicals could descend into the capital. All regions of the country are loyal to the Kremlin, and frank betrayal, attempts to sell abroad is not observed.

To prepare provocateurs-mercenaries in Russia will not work. The Russian special services are not Ukrainian, they have good training and a wealth of operational experience, so that they can neutralize any internal threats to the territorial integrity and sovereignty of the country.

The fight against the “fifth column” is also being conducted at the legislative level. What, for example, is the well-known Law “On Non-Profit Organizations”, tightening control over the activities of foreign agents (NPOs). Using this law, it will turn out to stop any attempts by the United States to provide financial assistance to the Russian extra-systemic opposition. The authorities, based on the experience of the coup in Kiev, in the near future will adopt a series of other laws aimed at strengthening the vertical of government.

Limits of American Power

In this case, the United States will remain to harm Russia with the help of economic sanctions. But in this case, its European allies, closely connected with the Russian market and dependent on energy supplies from Russia, will suffer from the actions of Washington. It is not known whether it will be possible to impose any sanctions at all: one thing is personal restrictions for individual citizens, and quite another is breaking strategic partnerships.

At the same time, Russia is implementing the reforms necessary to strengthen the Russian economy. The measures taken by the government are surprising in their scale: in the near future, the country will have a national payment system and its own rating credit agencies, and Russian banks have already begun to use the ruble instead of the euro and the dollar. The complex of such measures is the best way to combat dependence on foreign companies, which are used to dictate their economic policies to sovereign states. The current economic crisis is precisely due to this dictate.

The option of using the armed forces does not consider the White House at all: after the failed campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan, American society does not want to get involved in any armed conflicts. In addition, American troops in Ukraine will be unfriendly met by the local population, which does not want the occupation of their country.

Moving American warships and airplanes closer to the Russian borders is a bluff. Washington will not attack the nuclear power because it is afraid of retaliation. The only chance to defeat Russia is to act not from the outside, but from the inside.

But, as noted above, the aspirations of Barack Obama to split the Russian society did not materialize: Russia rallied together like a fortress, and well holds the blow. We can safely say that the country will endure the period of the American diplomatic offensive and withstand the few sanctions that can be imposed on individuals and commercial organizations from Russia at the initiative of the American president. But Obama has little time: every day the authority of the sluggish US president is melting before our eyes. A little more, and no one in the wake of the White House will go, than Russia will be able to profitably use.

        I remembered how the "hero" Politkovskaya shouted- "Russia is torturing the people in Chechnya who are fighting for their freedom! And Lord Judd also agrees with me!"
        And she already got a memorial plaque.
        And in Ukraine, why not put up a monument to Gubarev, or Tsarev?
        Yes, because they are enemies for Europeans, like any friends of Russia.
        But the enemies of Russia, like Politkovskaya, for the west, hero friends.
        Here are those who promoted the themes of the heroization of such types as Politkovskaya — and there is the FIFTH COLUMN in Russia.
        And they have to answer for their own affairs. This has nothing to do with the all-national question, but unfortunately there will be many Jews among them - we will be accused of anti-Semitism, but THIS IS NEEDED TO BE DONE — HOW AND DEFOF SHORIZATION IS REQUIRED IN OUR ECONOMY, how to pull out a tooth without anesthesia -It hurts, BUT REQUIRED!

            The article addresses some important issues, albeit superficially. In a nutshell, it can be translated as "all right guys". And so it really is. For me, it is much more important to answer the question "what to do next"?
            Russia and the peoples of Russia have a unique chance to accelerate their own development. In addition, the events on the Western Front are far from over. With a favorable and decisive advance, significant territories and related peoples can be regained. Only in Ukraine there are more than 20 million Russians and it is mainly concentrated in the Southeast regions. With the right approach, they can return to Russia, and then at the next census of the Russian population there will be not 143 million, but 163 million. Moreover, the percentage of Russians will grow to 90%.
            The aggregate GDP will also grow quite significantly due to the synergy of our enterprises.
            In addition, one should not forget that in the event of such a scenario, Transnistria will receive a border with Russia and the issue of "non-citizens" of Estonia and Russians in Latvia will also be raised to a new level.
            As for retaliatory sanctions, they will disappear within a few years, or even earlier.

              I agree. But this is strategic, and tactically, it is necessary to give time to the current ultranational course in Ukraine and around it go bad. This may not happen quickly. Must wait. Let the citizens of an independent look at improving the well-being of Russians in Crimea. Let them stand with outstretched hands at the thresholds of the EU and the USA. Let them eat dry rations given by Obama. And then ...

          Politkovskaya had American citizenship; she and Litvinenko were removed before the trip to the European Union for gas contracts under gas contracts. For her, Russia was a place to harvest cabbage. It was a sacrifice of pawns in order to disrupt the visit of GDP. Demonstrations were organized throughout all of Europe.

            They have not achieved anything yet. That informational garbage only works for a short period and requires constant replenishment, and the raw materials for lies are already ending and soon the false inflatable elephant will be blown away due to lack of swapping. But a non-seasoned hangover will be hard and bitter, but it will not work otherwise to reason and return to normal life.

      Interesting things are happening in Russia in response to US sanctions ...
      "Coca-Cola was removed from sales in Novgorod

      10 April 2014, Thursday,
      Businessmen from the Novgorod region responded to numerous sanctions by EU countries and the United States. In their stores, they banned the sale of Coca-Cola and Pepsi, which are popular all over the world. The initiative of entrepreneurs was supported by other business representatives.

      In the second largest city in the Novgorod region, where almost 56 of thousands of people live, the favorite soda drinks - Coca-Cola and Pepsi - have disappeared from the shelves of large stores. Thus, the owners of several trading enterprises protested against numerous sanctions by the EU countries and the United States against Russia.

      “For the sake of profit, the capitalists sell us drinks that are not known of what they are and have a bad effect on health,” Komsomolskaya Pravda quotes the author of the idea, 50-year-old businessman Viktor Savenkov. “I was supported by 15 entrepreneurs, in total they own a third of all shops in the city Coca-Cola is the best selling soft drink, but I will never sell it again. Money is not the most important thing! A girl came up to me and asked me to shake my hand for this act. "

      The businessman believes that in Russia there are enough good manufacturers producing high-quality products, the recipe of which is available to consumers. Leaving only domestic drinks on the shelves, Savenkov hopes to support the Russian producer and protect customers from not always high-quality imported drinks, and express his disagreement with the statements of the United States and European Union countries.

      Businessmen of the Novgorod region accepted the initiative of businessman Savenkov with a bang, despite the risk of losing part of their profits. Indeed, according to statistics, approximately 45% of the total volume of goods of an average retail network is imported products, including soda. "

          I am for our products on the shelves. I think that if our Government starts to give public service announcements that foreign products contain GMOs and a lot of concentragens, and ours does not, then it is possible to strangle soda imports in particular without a ban on imports.

              Perhaps it contains. Even more than that, it most likely contains. However, there is one BUT! Coca-cola and Pepsi contain them 100% and in the world there are many judicial precedents for harming the health of these drinks. We have the opportunity to return to the shelves quality domestic products. What is better than cola kvass? What is better to quench your thirst on a hot day?

        I practically do not use Cola, etc. I propose to spread the motto "We don't buy American" as widely as possible. After all, there used to be a chain of stores "Astrakhan without America" ​​in Astrakhan. Now is the time to restore it throughout Russia.

      Who created it as a state? All who were moving away from Europe, who were hiding from justice, someone heard that it was possible to make money there.
      Who cut the scalps from the Indians, for sale on wigs. Back in Europe in the 11 century.
      The scalp - a piece of scalp with hair - is most often associated with the colonial wars in North America, and became the main trophy and bargaining chip of these wars until the end of the 19th century. In 1724, Massachusetts offered 500 dollars for a red-skinned scalp, and in 1755 the same state offered 200 dollars for a male scalp of a red-skinned older than 12, and for a scalp of a red-skinned woman or child, 100.

      It is somewhat problematic to say exactly when scalping appeared in America, before or after the appearance of Europeans. In general, scalping was widely used among European tribes of the pre-Christian era.

Of course, I apologize, but during the time of independence, the snickering new Kazakh bais completely forgot the covenants of their great ancestors and distorted history worse than ever !!

      This is not meanness, but an influence on society, subordinating it to oneself, imposing one's own values, introducing them into the consciousness of the enemy, which makes it feel obliged to the one who actually enslaved him with a "sly".
      This is the information war that we always lost, and now, in order to prevent such scenarios as in Ukraine we should have won it, but we blinked, playing liberals with Navalny, echoes and rains. That’s the result.

    Russia is rising from its knees, the decaying West is rapidly decaying, it is only necessary in a single impulse, clearly following the party line ... Oh, a beautiful fairy tale, it’s a pity, not about us.

    Well, we squeezed Crimea from Ukraine, then what? We have another regular subsidized region, in which we have to swap a lot of lard money. Of particular practical benefit, except for an extra reason to swell with pride and imperial ambitions, is not observed.

    Have you wiped your nose on Amer? Yes, do not tell. the Americans achieved their goal: they arranged a coup in Ukraine, they planted their people, now these people will run to the IMF for loans, secured by which everything that is valuable remains in the country. Salvage defeated evil. And Russia, which rose from its knees, didn’t prevent this, and even helped, supporting fuss in the southeast and chopping off the Crimea. It can be said that she did all the dirty work so that the USA and the EU would not mess up their white hands.

    Are the sanctions of amers symbolic? Well, as expected: we did our job as it should, we have no complaints. Unless for the sake of sight it is necessary to portray some kind of protest, so that ordinary people would believe in the sincerity of the great confrontation.

    Of course, it was necessary to take a ride on the opposition: in any incomprehensible situation, crush those who disagree. Therefore, the opposition and protests must be fought without fail, not even trying to understand what it is opposing and what it is protesting against. After all, it is clear that the one who does not like GDP is necessarily bought by the West and wants to ruin our great power.

    It's good at least that the Americans are so stupid that they can't even cut down on a normal opposition. They hire all sorts of Navalny and "pussi-rayots", although they could just take and buy a dozen or two ministers and deputies. But alas, our ministers / deputies are all such patriots that they will never sell their homeland. Except for a long-term rental.

      Meanwhile, in essence, no one was able to answer anything, only rudeness and insults.

      The amusing face of local patriotism: to look into the mouths of leaders and fiercely rejoice at each of their sneezes. You don’t need to think about the nature and consequences of sneezes, harmful questions can get into your head from this, it distracts very much. And if someone still thinks about it, throw it with droppings, so as not to be mischievous.

      Hmm, with such patriots no fifth column is needed.

    An open letter from Mikhail Matveev (deputy of the Samara Provincial Duma, doctor of historical sciences, professor) to the American people and their leadership.
    Dear Americans and American Deputies, Mr. President Obama! Over the past thousand years, our people have been building the Russian state, and as a result have united in a vast space from the Pacific Ocean to the Baltic Sea and from the Arctic Ocean to the Black Sea and the Caucasus. Over these ten centuries, the Russians have managed to build a huge state, defending freedom and independence in countless trials. Crimea became part of Russia even before the Constitution appeared in the USA, and Kiev is called the “mother of Russian cities” as the first capital of the Russian state from the 6th century, that is, 1000 centuries before the discovery of America by Columbus. The territory of Ukraine is not the territory of a foreign country, once annexed by Russia, this is Russia itself, its historical native Russian land, the cradle of the Russian people, for the history of Russia began more than 1654 years ago from here, from Kiev. The Russian territories rejected by the separatists and foreign invaders always returned to Russia, this must be remembered. So, most of modern Ukraine, torn from Russia in the Middle Ages, voluntarily returned to Russia in 135, this is XNUMX years before the first president of the United States, in the year of the coronation of Louis XIV. Not a revolution, nor the first or second world war were able to destroy our state and the Russian nation, and political regimes only changed the names of Russia - Russia, the Russian Empire, the USSR, the Russian Federation ... For centuries, Russians cultivated this land, which today you call a stranger to us using the terms "annexation" and "invasion." Most of Ukraine, as part of Russia, has been called Little Russia and New Russia for centuries, the names themselves speak of its development by Russians. Look, everything that is there, built by the Russians, cities, factories, monuments, there are graves of Russians everywhere, remember the story: who liberated this land from Nazi aggression in World War II? soldier

    Now think, what is 23 years in the thousand-year history of Russia? In 1991, despite the decision of a referendum held on March 17, 1991 in the Soviet Union, where 77,85% supported the preservation of a single state, the separatists in the leadership of several regions proclaimed, contrary to the will of the people, the formation of independent states of Ukraine, Belarus, the Russian Federation, Kazakhstan, Georgia, and so on, were removed from power by Gorbachev. It’s the same as the governors of Florida, California or Pennsylvania would suddenly declare themselves separate states against the will of the American nation. Would you Americans be outraged if 23 years later, Forida would ask again? Does the unification of Germany divided by 50 years outrage you? Most of the citizens who are now in favor of reuniting this land with Russia are compatriots with the current citizens of Russia, participants in the same referendum of 1991 on a single USSR state, which the separatists Kravchuk and Yeltsin, who betrayed both Gorbachev and their people, deceived. They assert their right to return home. Why do you call the separatists of the rebels, those who want to unite back the former state that existed for centuries, but did not call the separatists those who ruined it 23 years ago? The processes that are now going around the return of territories seized from separatists by Russia are the restoration of a divided people, a divided Russian nation and Russia in its historical territories that have existed in our state for centuries. Russians do not annex anything from foreign countries. We return our. Browse through history books and open your eyes - this is Russian land for 300, 400, 500, 1000 years. And the separatists are overthrown and united with Greater Russia at the behest of the people, which was violated 23 years ago. This is democracy, this is a Russian association, do not bother him. The Russians will not go beyond their historical borders, but no one can stop the natural desire of a divided nation to be together in one state.

    Eurasian integration processes are only at the "beginning" of the path, and the United States is already afraid. And the Customs Union and the CSTO can in no way be called the "beginnings" of the USSR 2.0, the customs union, for example, represents a conditional "union" only as a single economic zone with simplified customs procedures, and the CSTO is certainly not a military bloc, but rather a dialogue platform of the Ministry of Defense, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Security Council of the participating countries. And the fact that they often conduct exercises, well, so Russia conducts exercises with the Armed Forces of the US and European countries.

    Europe is obliged to support Russia in the Ukrainian question entirely for two reasons. We must all recognize the right to reunite the great Russian people living both in Russia and on the left side of the Dnieper.
    On the other hand, the national group of Eastern Slavs, former subjects of the Habsburgs, who seized power in this country, declares their desire to "enter Europe." I must note that it is one thing to live peacefully and peasant labor in Habsburg Austria, and another thing if these uncultured and savage crowds of drug addicts, clochards and prostitutes, thirsty for blood, break into the cities of Western Europe. We cannot allow this under any circumstances.
    How these people behave and what we are, we saw very well on the footage the beating of the candidate President Tsarev with his undressing and theft followed by a demonstration of his underwear; on frames of torture of the municipal prosecutor and on frames of kneeling of governors. We do not want the central squares of our cities to become externally the central square of Kiev. This we will not allow.
