Alexander Gaponenko: “NATO in the Baltic States is a bludgeon for local Russians”Conversation with the Deputy Chairman of the Parliament of the Unrepresented, Latvia, Co-Chairman of the United Congress of Russian Communities of Latvia


- The entry of the Baltic states into the EU and NATO was accompanied by great pomp and was given off almost as a trip into paradise even during life. And what is the situation with the Russian inhabitants of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia today, in fact, has their situation improved?

- Latvia did not join the EU and NATO in order to improve the position of Latvians, including Russians, but fulfilling the wishes of their Western curators. For the West, Latvia is a market for industrial products, a supplier of cheap and skilled labor, a source of wood and peat, and agricultural products. The lands and forests in the country now belong to two thirds of the Scandinavians. Foreigners bought real estate in Riga and Jurmala. The once numerous Latvian banks were also bought by the Scandinavians and, as a phenomenon, have already disappeared. To serve retirees from Scandinavia, a decent tourism industry has been established in Riga. Jobs in the country fell by a third after the crisis, and hence the mass emigration of the population to the UK and Ireland. The EU’s leadership prefers to turn a blind eye to the ethnic discrimination of Russians in Latvia, as well as to the existence of an institution of mass statelessness.

- Is it possible to expect, in your opinion, an end to the discriminatory policy towards the Russian population while NATO troops are here?

- NATO actually in the Baltic countries plays the role of a baton, which the ruling elite regularly threatens with the Russians. During the exercises, this organization works out actions for the landing of troops in areas of ethnic conflict, preparing, according to a number of authoritative military experts, to isolate Russian activists in the event of any threats. And now, from the lips of politicians, there are assurances that the Latvian army is preparing to perform the same functions as the militarized formations of the self-proclaimed Kiev authorities in the Donetsk Republic. What these bandit formations are doing there, we know - they are firing at civilians.

- How, in your opinion, will the Russian population of the Baltic States respond to the additional deployment of NATO troops in these countries, against the backdrop of aggressive anti-Russian and Russophobic rhetoric, coming from NATO headquarters? Especially if the deployment of the new military bases of the United States and NATO will take place in areas densely populated by Russians?

- The Russians are already opposing even the temporary deployment of a NATO military contingent in Latvia. Dissatisfied with these plans and part of the Latvians. However, the authorities have launched a campaign in the media to intimidate Latvians with the fact that the Russians are the “fifth column”, hinting that they should not join their anti-war appeals, since they are really aimed at covering the Russian occupation. The scale of provocative anti-Russian publications in the media is terrifying. I see behind all this the purposeful activity of the ruling Latvian elite, which wants to unleash a civil war in the country, to make Latvians forget about their theft, corruption, betrayal of the interests of their people.

- Where does the main vector of anti-Russian and Russophobic policies in the Baltic countries come from - from a simple Latvian, Lithuanian, Estonian or from the ruling bureaucracy and their patrons from Washington?

- In Latvia, the main source of anti-Russian and anti-Russian threats is the ruling Unity party. Before the elections, she decided to take extreme national-radical positions and now intimidates ordinary Latvians. She surpassed even the National Socialist Party "All Latvia". What are the legislative initiatives of "Unity": the adoption of a racist preamble to the constitution, a law on criminal liability for assessments historical events. This party began to carry out the assimilation reform of Russian schools. By the way, the actions of Unity became so odious that even the Americans began to refuse the party. For example, they resigned Prime Minister V. Dombrovskis, removed the ardent Russophobe A. Pabriks from the post of Defense Minister. Now they are looking for another political force that they could rely on. The United States is not going to start a third world war with Russia because of inadequate Latvian national-radicals. Lithuania and Estonia have their own parties similar to "Unity", controlled by Washington.

- Official Latvia condemned the entry of Crimea into Russia, and what kind of reaction was noted to this event in the Russian community of Latvia?

- The main part of the Latvian Russians supported the process of reunification of the Crimea with Russia. Two meetings were held at the Russian embassy in support of this decision.

Recently, a public discussion on the issue of the reunification of the divided Russian nation in Latvia has just begun. Video debates on this issue have already been held within the framework of the “Russian Discussion Club”, it is planned to hold public events and diverse actions.

      assurances from the lips of politicians that the Latvian army is preparing to perform the same functions as the paramilitary forces of the self-proclaimed authorities of Kiev in the Donetsk Republic.

      Why is the smaller the nation, the more govste it is? All of this Baltic is Europe’s entrance yard. They all had just passing by, not even conquering. Once they did good to them, during the Union, now they’re angry, like a rat cornered. I’m absolutely sure that after a while they will also apply to amers.
      Or are they just a masochistic people, the worse they do it, the more devoted they are to their master.

        The appearance of the people depends on who controls it. If an honest patriot is in power, then an honest people will unite around him. And when a thief and a scoundrel is in power, then in the government and across the power vertical, the ranks are occupied by thieves and scoundrels, and honest people are being eliminated.
        So the country's governance structure forms.
        Here in the USSR there was a cult of the man of labor - Stakhanovets, in all media. And there was a result.
        Now we have in the media a cult of a salesman - a manager, such as Obramovich. And the results are appropriate.
        In the Baltics, and even worse.

        So often you need to remember the right people and tell the children so that the media could not bend their brains.

              And what kind of people did he lead to the wrong place, if Field Marshal P. A. Rumyantsev wrote in his memoirs that upon entering Prussia, ALL peasants spoke a language that was understandable to Russian soldiers. And after 150 years, the Slav Slovenes suddenly disappeared and became Germans? .

                  So it seems from the "burlin", a place on the river where there are many whirlpools, granted by Charles the Great to Frederick Iron Teeth in the 400th century. Or I am mistaken. And the German people do not seem to exist, considering that XNUMX thousand Lusatian people still live in the Bundesland Serbs.

        Of course, the less, the gov-stee ... They want to feel their "significance" somehow! Now, it's not just Russians who are shitty about working in the Baltics. Locals go to the west, but good specialists are needed there, there are enough of their own parasites. A friend from the Baltic states works in Germany as a programmer, he is covered in chocolate ... But this is SPECIAL! And in the bulk, "if only where they took" ... About the attitude towards the Americans ... But where should they perform, the whole country is sold ...

      Our president did not order to offend the Russians. He promised to punish for this and received special permission from the Federation Council in this regard.
      If we want to save and revive Russia, we cannot do without the Russian World! And if we want to raise Russia, we must first raise the RUSSIAN WORLD.
      If there is information about the oppression of the Russians (I always write this word with a capital letter) in the Baltic states (and this word - with a small one), we must respond appropriately so that we don't decide that our president is throwing words into the wind.
      And yet, for you personally. Under the portrait of N.V. Gogol wearing the nickname "Andrey" is dangerous. Remember his Taras Bulba and how his relationship with his youngest son ended.

      To rise and raise oneself. I completely agree with the last quote, but you need to look deep into all the events that take place.
      We are being shaken, it was not possible to shake us inside with "beloletochniki", they begin to shake us on the outer lines.
      We need to really assess our strengths and the potential for using our own resources.
      It is necessary to help New Russia, but not to overdo it. Russian Russians and other Baltic countries need help, but unfortunately this is not being done and has not been done. Who should do this? State or private companies? The question is open.
      But the most IMPORTANT thing is that Russians need to raise themselves at home. 95% of all efforts should be directed to the improvement of your home and your land, to raise your families. The people must become monolithic and prosperous, then you can go outside. But first, you need to solve your problems at home, so that the enemies could not push us with their heads on these problems. It is very important.

      with him to the owner:

And quickly eat what they put in their pants, and for distillation. Saying: We will ride again, then, somehow, if we remember this. laughing

        The bird of prey depicted on the Great Seal has a length of about 80 cm and a wingspan of up to 2 meters. The growth on the skull of an eagle gives it a slightly frown. Among the Indians, this bird was considered a sacred animal. The bald eagle became a national symbol after it appeared on the emblem of the United States.

    Whatever you call national identity, the West clearly distinguishes between:
    If it is Russian, then it is Nazism, chauvinism and fascism.
    If Latvians, Ukrainians, Poles and other young Europeans, then this is the historical development of peoples.
    In their circle, the United States and the Western European elite flirt with the Nazis, but they do not allow politics, and let Eastern Europe entertain itself. wassat

    In Soviet times, such a historical legend was voiced that supposedly in 1938, General Halder (then the chief of the General Staff of the OKH) traveled in Tallinn and at a meeting with local military the question of how much the Estonian army could hold out against the Red Army, received an honest answer - eight hours. It is said that Halder scratched his head and pretended that German help from Prussia might not be in time. So let Estonia not forget arithmetic and, looking towards Pskov, learns to count. Already enough up to five.

    It was ours that we had to warn the Baltic politicians in time that, if they accept the Amer’s base, they are subject to criminal liability in Russia. And, to be witty, to condemn in public some Baltic state (for criminality).
