Listening to Putin. Conclusions about geopolitics

The Chinese have a wise saying: “May you live in an era of change.” Something like a curse. In my life in the nineties of the last century, I very often recalled it. However, lately, I increasingly find myself thinking that the current era of change appeals to me more and more. It is like other changes. And since the last time I manage to watch or listen to almost every speech of our leader, these are the conclusions that came out.

How interesting is the world divided today, if you carefully listen to the words of GDP. He emphasizes this often, but without fanaticism. Therefore, it seems to be slipping by.

We have no enemies. This he said not so long ago. For dates I’m not sure, I jotted out the statements themselves in passing. The enemy is the one who must be wary, from whom evils are expected. I am glad that Russia, according to the president, has no enemies.

Russia has many partners. Here is very interesting. A partner is someone with whom you can make small gesheft or a large business. It turns out that we have a large part of the world in our partners. Partner can not love, but to respect the profit that you can fuck with it. All clear. Our partners include the States, Britain, Germany, France, and others like them.

It is clear that you can expect anything from a partner: sanctions, kidalov, defaults and other “charms” of our being. It's like every citizen of the country, but on a national scale. Ukraine is also on a par with the United States. Intelligible, right?

During the last four speeches of Putin, I heard the phrase “our Chinese allies” three times. Indicative of? An ally is a different level. Union - he is a union in Africa. And it involves something more than a profitable trading relationship. In our clear allies for Putin, we have Kazakhstan, Armenia and others. Little, but there is. And in my opinion, one ally is worth a dozen partners. So obvious parity is present.

Well, at the very end about the brothers. About the fraternal peoples. Naturally, it is first about Belarus. It is as if not discussed. But slipped in relation to Ukraine. There, of course, more difficult. Those with guns in Kiev - it turns out, partners. Everything within the framework of the definition, they do not want to pay for gas, the rights of a part of the population and journalists are infringed, unequivocally - partners. Yes, and reverse deliveries - this is also very partnership. And those in the Donbas with machine guns are brothers. Everything is laid out on the shelves.

Indeed, everything is on the shelves. Except for one thing: thrice in a week, the underlined phrase “Chinese allies”. It seems that some people in Europe can miss another trick of our unpredictable. Too much there all carried away by the sanctions and Ukraine. Too calmly, ours react to everything: to sanctions, to the cries of the State Department, to the reverse grimaces of the Ukrainian junta, to the Canadian attempts to punish us by not starting our companion. The Crimea, apparently, has not yet taught Europe anything. Well, as they say, your European problems.

Quietly and calmly preparing a turn to the east. Then you and the pipeline, and oil pipelines, and gas terminals in Vladik. And much more - something that we probably do not know about. Hopefully, we don't know yet. And it may turn out that after a while some of the partners will be confronted with the fact that they were preferred by the allies. Here are just too late to rush. And bite your elbows. And we must not be afraid of joining the Donbass to Russia. Not the absence of Russia in G7 or 20. And the real possibility of the appearance of the Big Two is Russia + China. And all this, apparently, and goes. And there will be many who, having overcome the eternal fear of the “legislators of democracy”, will support this union.

It is interesting to listen to Putin. A lot of things come to mind. One thing is clear for now - we live in a time of change. I hope that these changes are only for the better, whatever they predict.

        It looks like the situation with the Chinese is brewing. This union will turn the world around if it becomes a real military-political and economic, and not a temporary conjunctural. For joining it, a line of weaker but farsighted ones will very quickly line up. After the emergence of such a union, the EU will remain six months to a year. The question is open with the United States ... it will not get into the fray weakly, but there is no way out - therefore, the growing crisis, the collapse of the dollar, the collapse of the banking economy, leaving the regions of the world ...

          I would not fall into euphoria with the Chinese. They have seven Deng Xiaoping principles there, I don’t remember exactly, but something like that: to boost the economy, build up strength, get ready and jump. According to the calculations of some (I don’t remember who) analysts, by the age of 50 they will jump to Russia.

      No matter how we discuss, and we ourselves are the most important ally, we just have questions in connection with the events in Ukraine, introduced new sanctions, information and statements of politicians and businessmen went through our media, now we have a chance to build a NATIONAL economy, it turns out In 2014, we did not build it, and whose economy was built, in 2010 in the State Duma they blocked the national payment system, I would like to know who was behind this, moreover, please let the country know our heroes. We tied ourselves to the Western market and rubbed ourselves the backside of a green piece of paper like a silly dog, where our prominent economists, market strategists, languages ​​pushed into one place, where a promising, strategic look at the Russian economy, 2013, a failure in GDP, the first quarter of 2014 is the same, China is stamping more than 7% GDP, and the stability of our failures indicates the quality of professionalism of our government. 28.04.2014/37/37, the President of Kazakhstan Nazarbayev’s speech at Lomonosov Moscow State University showed amazing, block, beautiful, smart, well-balanced proposals in the field of economics, science, education, integration, our government looks like boys in short pants against this background. the transmission of the Truth-Karaulov Moment, so that the President could watch it together with the government, the Prosecutor General’s Office and law enforcement agencies, special services, judges, and then tell the people how to live, it’s right for us not XNUMX years old, after watching it, we get worse than XNUMX years old, AUTHORITY calls us to UNITY, with such an order in the country we won’t get any unity, you live on your own, people on their own. All these sanctions were foreseen, they were spoken about by experts, politicians, but they were dismissed from them, as the democratic West , it can’t be, and sanctions, if they are toughened even more, will hit primarily the common population. AUTHORITY - and where is the insight of thought, the experience of other countries, etc. .. Only we ourselves can restore order if the AUTHORITY wants to, if he will, there will be even more allies and in Ukraine many would think where to go. ALLIES THIS WE ARE ALL CITIZENS OF RUSSIA + AUTHORITY, INCLUDING ARMY AND Navy.

        now we have a chance to build a NATIONAL economy, it turns out until 2014 we did not build it, and whose economy was built

        Not a CHANCE, but a NECESSITY. Different things, agree ...
        Well, where to go from the fact that we have capitalism? But capitalism needs markets. Therefore, the oligarchs vitally needed good relations with the West so that they would buy resources from us. Because of this, the real sector also slowed down. Because it will consume the resources that are now exported.
        What is happening now? The crisis has shown that there is no place for everyone in the capitalist boat. Everyone needs to expand, but nowhere to expand further. Therefore, the Western world is going to change the formation - it begins to tighten the screws. What will it be? Neo-feudalism or a non-slave society - we will look at this. But the problem is that this new formation will collapse the economy, reducing consumption and production. Accordingly, the profits of our oligarchs will also decrease. Plus, our Western partners are not averse to minimizing their resource costs in order to keep profits at maximum height in the conditions of falling production. And how can you minimize costs? That's right, take it by force with minimal cost. Even if you have to invest in the capture itself. But business is aware that money sticks to money. And ready for that. Whereas our oligarchs are not ready to give their profits. And in this situation, their interests go parallel to the Chinese. China is the workshop of the world and therefore a decline in consumption will hit it even harder than in Russia. What does he not have to take his products at all! At least they will take resources from us, and China will work in a landfill. Work for the domestic market? But is it possible to replace the huge markets of Europe and America in China? There are many people there, but people's incomes are not comparable. And if you start raising people's incomes, then the prices of goods will increase, the circle will close and galloping inflation will begin. In such a situation, Russia and China are more important than ever to each other. Because Russia is for China at the same time a sales market that they will not want to lose, but will want to expand in every way, and a source of resources from which the West wipes them everywhere. Our oligarchs are interested in China in order to maximize supplies there while reducing demand in the West. In this situation, the union of Russia and China will be strong enough all the time of turbulence that will arise during the collapse of Western economies.

    We also need to be careful with China. They know very well how to bend their policy. With them, you need to constantly and invariably adhere to one line. If our leadership is always "flint" - we will be successful with China. But if we gape, they will quickly strip us like sticky. The only thing China is not dangerous to us is that their ideology is alien to us, and even if our strong friendship does not spread to us. As usual, you need to be smart. And the future belongs to friendship with the East.

    However, in recent years, more and more I find myself thinking that the current era of change is more and more to my taste.
    We generated these changes! This is our daily internal work "on mistakes", our dissatisfaction and annoyance at what happened to our Motherland, our bitterness and anger at the sight of the desecrated (with our connivance in the 90s) country. All this gave rise to a field of such strength that even the "dielectric swamp" was polarized. I want the "human sobs" of the fifth column to drown in our triumphant roar (as when celebrating a goal)

    Over the last four speeches of Putin, I have heard the phrase "our Chinese allies" three times. ... Ally - this is a different level.

    Against the background of these statements, Obama's anti-China tour of Asia took place. He managed to check in precisely in those countries that have unresolved territorial issues with China and promised all kinds of protection to everyone. Oh, America will finish badly. China hasn't really tackled it yet. When it does, then all these "clients" will immediately go over to the side of China. Because it's scary ...

    For me, China is not an ally, and not even a partner, it is a quiet aggressor. Almost the entire domestic consumer market in Russia is Chinese goods. Vegetable plantations in the east of our country are Chinese. Part of the main Russian industries is in China (laws are more democratic there). So the dependence on China is much higher than on the United States. We depend on the United States only in that we pay in dollars and of course in that a significant part of our businessmen and aligarchs conduct their operations through American offshore companies.

    Speaking of methods of dealing with democratizers
    Today he drank coffee with an Egyptian engineer of the Abdelnasser generation. That is, the dreamer of the USSR is stronger than many Soviet ones. In particular, they chatted about the situation when the States brought to power Mursik from the “Brothers of Muslims”, but could not keep him, and the military pushed him.

    And now the Egyptian said that the situation should have developed differently - the States were already on the way to a military solution - two landing ships, the San Antonio and the Kirsarge, were sent to the shores of Egypt, with helicopter groups and special forces. In response, the Egyptian warriors raised one of their regular MiG-21s, flew up at an ultra-low altitude and simulated a collision. After that, a conversation took place between representatives of the Egyptian and American military commands, during which the Egyptians offered amers to compare the cost of their ship and the cost of the ancient MiG-21, even taking into account its full filling with explosives. It seems like it was after that that the States turned a blind eye to the house arrest of Mursi, into whose cultivation so much dough was thrown, and no longer tried to force the situation by force.

    I did not find official information on the incident, but I fully admit that this was the case.

    China is not our ally! Turn to the east will not save, nifiga will not save, in the absence of an alternative to sales, the Chinese will pay pathetic pennies for resources and steal our technologies (we already sell S-400 to them). Therefore, it is necessary to resolve the issue in order to stay with European customers and slowly move to China. The most important thing is to develop our production, technology and science, we will live on raw materials for another 50 years and that's it.

So let them copy, the flag, as they say, in hand. And the rest ... They tried on Damansky Island a tooth like a gold coin, evaluated and changed tactics and strategy.

      I can not agree with this judgment.
      China is the most obvious ally. This is a very pragmatic choice. And this choice was not made yesterday. We moved very carefully towards this alliance, waiting for the moment when such an alliance could be concluded on equal terms. Such a moment has come.
      An ally - this is not the one who is fed and for any reason publicly kissed passionately. Such alliances are flawed and short-lived. The history of the Warsaw Pact is evidence of this. The party leadership of the USSR relied on ideological "unity", economic integration and a military-political alliance, which was actually expressed in the deployment of our troops in Eastern Europe. The first two factors were provided, as is now obvious, by a very narrow layer of national party bosses, which by their nature were pro-Western (culture, mentality, etc.), and therefore crumbled (without our support) at the very first serious tests, and the last factor, the most significant, we removed ourselves with the hands of Gorbachev and EBN under the Kalinka-raspberry.
      With China, everything is different.
      Firstly, we have a common, very not calm "partner" who simply forces us to "be friends" against him.
      Secondly, the state of the economies of our countries is such that it allows us to single out a whole group of areas in which we can complement each other and have long-term mutually beneficial interests.
      For China, we are of interest not only as a source of raw materials, but also as a very capacious market for goods and technologies, which China "borrowed" from the West.
      For us, China is not only a consumer of our oil and gas, but also our military-technical technologies. Here we are still strong and hopefully we will become even stronger. No one is going to open the whole little egg here. China's patent law and know-how habits are well known to all. I’m sure that nobody will clap their ears here.
      In addition, China and Russia can very easily agree on zones of influence so as not to step on each other's feet.
      The Chinese mentality is fundamentally different from American hegemony. Glade is actually very large. For China - Southeast Asia, Africa and part of South America. (The Chinese understand that in our Siberia they simply will not survive, and why). The zone of Russia is Europe, the Middle East, North Africa, Central and part of South America. The scale of expansion is comparable to the scale of the economies of our countries.
      But the most important thing is that we are interested in China as a carrier of a distinctive economic model. Perhaps, at last, looking at China, we will be able to get rid of Gaidar's monetaryism and finally break out of the dollar monetary "universe."

          Officially claim the symbol of Japan:
          - pheasant;

    Today I realized that the Civil War in Russia has begun! Yes exactly! I also understood how the year 1937 began in Russia. How did the repression begin?
    Sunny morning, a phone rings:
    “- Good morning, Mom!”
    - The prison is crying for you! I finally read your article. You insult the president in it! You are no longer my son. At a time when the whole country ...
    - And what about the country? The country attacked another, seized its land, kills its citizens, and the president, indeed, if all this does.
    - All! You are no longer my son! I will never help you again! Do not call again!
    -Do you want your grandson to be sent to this war ?! So that he would kill those who speak the same language as he does? And then they killed him? For just that? For the stupidity and ambitions of a nearby colonel? ”
    The answer is an abandoned pipe!
    That is how the civil war begins. It begins with the split of the family, when the mother becomes against her son, daughter against her father, brother against brother. So there are concentration camps, so they kill the dissent, they kill with the hands of their relatives, people closest to them. This is the worst war of all armed conflicts. It has no real reasons, it is not being fought for land, it is not being fought for spheres of influence, and it cannot be justified. Only ideology.
    That is exactly what the potential war with Ukraine is for me! For me, Ukraine is part of me. It’s hard for me to accept that my right hand will cut my left. There is no reason for this action other than schizophrenia. And this can be stopped if you go to the doctors on time and take the medicine.
    External aggression will unite Ukraine, and Russia will ruin this war. Thousands of sons will die, and no one will help their mothers. Are mothers ready to send their sons to the slaughter for a golden loaf? Thousands of children will be left without fathers. Who will explain to them why they died? Who will help them grow and which of them will grow? Are they aware of this? Or, as usual, everyone thinks that this will not affect them? Like, this will happen to the neighbors, but will everything be okay with us? No, never will, never will be!
    Thousands of former soldiers will not receive fame and honors. On the contrary, they will be forced to hide their participation in it, since this war will be recognized as criminal, and, accordingly, all those who took part in it will be criminals, persons who have executed criminal orders. This has already happened in history, it is enough to recall the Nuremberg trials. It was clearly and clearly indicated that the execution of a criminal order is a crime and is subject to criminal liability if it entailed serious consequences.

    The death of the enemy under these conditions will be equated, on the part of the attackers, with murder, and on the part of the defenders this will be recognized as the right to self-defense. Both those who gave orders and those who executed them, as well as those who supported and created the conditions for their execution, will be recognized as criminals.
    I would like to ask those who plan and carry out preparatory actions for this war, are they aware of the consequences of their actions? How many steps are they planning? And what will happen next? Or do they think that having unleashed a war, they will emerge victorious from it, and they will not judge the victors? To do this, you need to win ... Yes, and by the way, Karadzic with Milosevic is not an example for them?
    Think! Time is running out!

United Europe, it is in the role of an auxiliary ally, there any attempt to take leadership in the orchestra is stopped by a neighboring bow. China dominates in Asia - that's where all the production is. America cannot deprive itself of its own production base.
    Russia is most suitable for the role of the enemy. You don’t even have to prove anything. We have been enemies for them for decades. It just doesn’t work with Russia. It’s too tough for them to Russia. From this and angry. And scurry from side to side like jackals.
    The main thing for us now is not to miss the moment when they rush at us in their dying attempt to grab a bit more painfully.

The scenario of the 3rd world is simple to madness - the question is what needs to be done for the first launch? In any case, we should start from Europe - with their missile defense. That is the millionth question - why is Europe hosting the American missile defense system at home?
