Crimean Gambit

121



About the events in Ukraine did not speak and did not write just lazy. But still I want to express a slightly different view. I think no one has any doubt that another orange revolution has taken place in Ukraine. In recent years, there have been quite a few of these revolutions throughout the world, and this is not the first time for Ukraine. Also, everyone knows who is the director of all such events. The United States tested technology “orange revolutions”, reaching almost 100% success in obtaining the planned result. And suddenly such a failure. America is investing big enough money in Ukrainian chaos, and Russia is receiving dividends from it. This, of course, is a great cause for joy, but inside there is some concern ... Everyone knows that in politics, especially in that part of politics pursued by the most dishonest and vile methods, the Anglo-Saxons have achieved the highest perfection in recent centuries. Maybe here all this combination was worked out in advance?

So, the beginning was commonplace. "Popular" protests against the policies of the current government. Inaction of the president. His escape. And the coming to power of those for whom all these protests were organized. What should the new government have to do if it planned to calmly govern the country? Naturally, reduce the passions. But in Ukraine there is another. Those who came to power do not seek to reconcile the parties and to solve problems. They continue to spin the flywheel of nationalism in a multiethnic state. They continue to intensify the split between the inhabitants of the country, inflating the smoldering coals of rebellion and pushing the country to civil war. In principle, it only opens the ears sticking out behind all these. The United States does not need the state of Ukraine. She needs a controlled chaos of the type worked in the countries of the Middle East.

During this period, Crimea holds a referendum and during the day is part of Russia. Everyone is jubilant, Putin's ratings are soaring to unattainable heights, and “effective managers” are rubbing their hands: after all, a new region has emerged, into which huge budgetary investments will go. And how to work with such money, these “effective managers” know perfectly well.

So, the Crimea was a very sweet piece for everyone. Someone raised his rating, someone figured out how many billions could fuck on this, and the rest simply received moral satisfaction from the courage shown by Russia for the first time in the last quarter century. In a word, the Crimea was such a tasty morsel, like cheese in a mousetrap. No, I'm not saying that the inhabitants of Crimea did not want to go to Russia. Wanted And we wanted to see them in Russia too. But who introduced the idea to hold a referendum at such an opportune time, I would be interested to know. And it’s not interesting who exactly voiced this idea, but who, standing behind him, just threw this idea, so that others would accept it as their own. Perhaps there was no such person. But ... the option remains.

So, the Russians and Crimeans rejoice. And in America and Europe they say that Russia annexed a piece of a sovereign state, taking advantage of the problems in that state. Public opinion in the world is being prepared for the fact that Russia is an aggressor. And the unprincipled aggressor.

What happens next? Southeast is in favor of autonomy. The question of autonomy goes into the proposal for separation. Passion inside Ukraine is growing. On the one hand, the government continues to pursue a policy of infringement of the Russian-speaking population, and on the other, it raises the degree of Ukrainian nationalism. After the transition of the Crimea to Russia, part of the inhabitants of the Southeast hopes for Russian assistance and therefore decides on an open tough confrontation. Is this a development for Russia? Not. And it is precisely in matters of the South-East that I am sure that the call for autonomy, and especially for separation, originally came precisely from the gray cardinals directing the "Orange Revolutions." But he found himself on the so prepared ground of the sincere desires of the inhabitants of these regions, that he immediately caused a wave.

Let's think about it. But can Russia really help the Southeast? I think no. To send troops there? But then all over the world it will be declared occupation. And here, even China "disown." Spit on everything, and still go to a conflict that could escalate into an armed conflict with NATO? Well, for this we have no strength! If for Iraq, an air group was assembled in 2560 aircraft, then it would be no less for “protecting” Ukraine. And how many Russian combat aircraft? A few hundred. Therefore, Russia cannot take any action that could lead to such a conflict. That is why the Ukrainian authorities will quietly apply the armed forces against the South-East. That is why they will continue to unleash a civil war. And that is why they exacerbate the issue with gas.

Can we stop gas supplies to Ukraine? Smug Kiselev on NTV on Sunday said: "I do not understand, my friends (obviously the same sleek snobs. - Author) do not understand, my Russian friends (I will refrain from commenting. - Author.) Also do not understand why Russia Should Ukraine supply gas to LOSS itself? "

Well, Mr. Kiselev knows these two concepts well: profit and loss. But can not understand otherwise. Turning off the gas, we will turn it off in the Southeast. For residents of the South-East, it will be like a betrayal. Many will find that profit is really the most important for Russia and that in the absence of profit we are ready to give it up. Moreover, those residents of central and western Ukraine, who are still for the union of Ukraine with Russia and fraternal relations, may also think about the correctness of their views. And it’s not easy for them when everybody around is called Russia an enemy, a state with imperial manners and a corrupt, soulless population. No, turning off the gas, we will give another trump card in the information war against our enemies.

And now let's see: what was the way out of this situation? It is in those conditions when the current government does not want peace in the country. The introduction of UN troops and observers would be normal. Both that, and another would provide the termination of "Maidan", armed clashes and other disorders, as well as the holding of the May elections. By this time, Ukrainians would have felt the lack of a budget for the payment of pensions, salaries, and the absence of any business advantages of the interim government. In addition, given that the population of the Southeast is larger than that of the West, and the residents of Central Ukraine are likely to be equally divided in their choice, the chances of choosing a pro-Russian president would be quite high. But for this, it is necessary that the composition of the UN observers and troops should be more representatives of Russia, China, Kazakhstan, Belarus and even Finns and Poles, but fewer Americans, British and their vassals.

Now, in my opinion, this chance is missed. The West can prevent Russian members, since Russia, according to the West, has demonstrated its interest in Ukrainian resources and territories, and therefore, in the opinion of the West, it cannot be objective, etc., etc. And without a powerful bloc of Russia, China and fraternal neighbors, elections cannot be normal.

Thus, having received the Crimea, we gave the West a lever with which it will squeeze us out of participation in solving Ukrainian problems. And the further scenario of the Ukrainian question will go along a more rigid and unpredictable path.

    It’s high time to review the participation policy. Representation must be equal. Moreover, preference should be given to geographical neighbors.

      The smug sleek Kiselev on NTV said on Sunday: “I don't understand, my friends (obviously the same sleek snobs. - Author) also do not understand, my Russian acquaintances (I will refrain from commenting. - Author.) also do not understand why Russia should supply gas to Ukraine at a LOSS to itself? ”

      Especially for The author - I explain an elementary thing, it is not clear why it did not reach The author. Russia Should not act at a loss, because Ukraine is an independent and separate state. Russia Can act to the detriment of their financial interests on the principles of friendly relations and the overall contribution to the common cause. But just like that.
      As they say - took up the chest, say something. If you called yourself square and put the buoy on your neighbors - behave accordingly and pay in full. And your moaning Author, from the "onizhedeti" series. And for SE - do not worry, they perfectly understand what is happening and why.

        It seems to me that Mr. Reshetnikov didn’t understand the situation a bit ... Turn off the gas, hit the southeast ... But what, does everything work there now and everyone gets paid? Or is it now that the majority (paradoxically) of the citizens of Ukraine decide something?
        The article is a typical sample of verbiage. Ask now, Who will recognize the elections in Ukraine? Nobody but civilized ones ... By the way, they are in no hurry to feed the new government ... They feed them with promises, but not with money ...
        But the EU and us will still have to solve the problem of Ukraine ... Americans will wash their hands exactly when they have achieved a real result, the beginning of the war ...

          Began! Alarmists need to shoot. For the southeast, do not worry. They work here, eat little, and steal in Kiev. So we do not require special assistance (state). Investments in the modernization of production - yes. It is possible and state. And who else will be involved in the nuclear, rocket and space industry, science? In the union, steel for submarines was poured only in Mariupol, Kherson is a large port and roads to the Crimea, Zaporozhye, Kharkov, Dnepropetrovsk, Donetsk - this is such a concentration of science and industry that it can only be compared with Moscow and St. Petersburg. Now the efficiency there is low - after all, this is primarily a defense industry, which Kiev does not need, but Moscow really needs ...

            The article is really slightly panicky.
            And with an attempt to put it under analytics.

            In reality - I believe Putin when he spoke and thought that he was sitting and decided at the last moment to annex Crimea or not.
            No, of course the "polite" acted according to a clear and long-prepared plan, of course it all did not start in February (there is even a source :-)))), but ... I think they did not want to bring it up to the inclusion of Crimea in the Russian Federation.

            And now ... there is a YuVU, which will now slowly rebel: Donetsk, Lugansk, then Kharkov, then to Odessa.
            Of course, there is a GRU (of course, not dozens of DRGs, but a few people, maybe 1-2 small groups), everything went smoothly harmoniously - if you look at the map how everything flared around Slavyansk, you can immediately see the center - warehouses in Soledar.
            But ... no country can spark a rebellion in another country - the conditions for it will always be born within the country itself, and not from the outside.

            And now ... it looks like one big Transnistria will appear.
            Neither good nor bad, just the most likely option: federalization has already been lost, in Russia immediately take these lands - run into real economic sanctions, and not everyone in SEI wants this (unlike Crimea, by the way) - I think there are 50x50, somewhere bigger, somewhere smaller.

            Well ... the remaining Ukraine-most likely will survive.
            Moreover, the collapse of the hryvnia that is coming - it’s good for the economy (for a large part of the citizens it’s bad - yes), you look and get out. True, it will already be a completely different country.

            So ... the war in Crimea, everything is in smoke and nothing is visible.
            We are waiting, cheering for SEU, supporting the authorities, when they at least stand up for Ukrainians with threats and ... peace of mind.
            So far, Putin has been playing geopolitics in a very clear, restrained manner, having won the first battle of the war, in fact, only by demonstrating strength, which, according to Sun Tzu, is not the most ideal, but a very good victory.

        How should it not act at a loss? Is it like in Yugoslavia?
        Yes, if we then spat on everything and equipped the navy there, and at least BUKs delivered free of charge at a loss, would it be worse? Despite the fact that Yugoslavia is a sovereign country.

        There is no need to be a prophet to understand from the very beginning that Russia
        will not leave Crimea in the flames of a coup. And whisper to anyone and do not need anything.
        Because if at the end of February there weren’t Russian territory in Crimea
        troops, then in early March the worst massacre in Ukraine would begin, and then,
        who knows, maybe the NATO peacekeepers would rule the ball long ago, and the USA
        they’d already hosted on the peninsula. I remember when Yushchenko was an attempt
        to conduct some exercises with the Americans in Feodosia, then the residents of the city threw them rotten eggs and rotten carrots on that exercise and ended,
        but now it would be a full intervention. Russia literally ahead of
        2 days. Great invincible Russian Empire! Glory to you for centuries!
        However, attempts at sabotage persist and I think that for a long time will have to be on the alert. Here is the information about Tymoshenko, well, something about the Crimea.

      The author is wrong. The Maidan was sponsored and prepared by the United States in order to set up its government, this is a no brainer. And then those deep-seated contradictions between the West and the South-East of Ukraine that were laid at the mental level crawled out. And the further actions of Russia, the West and internal forces in Ukraine are a reaction to a situation that is not completely controlled and planned by anyone, it is a kind of spontaneous movement

      In order for Ukrainian problems not to be resolved without us, it is necessary not to stop, but as soon as possible to regain the original Russian lands, our outskirts, transferred by the Bolsheviks to the Germans in payment for the infamous Brest peace, and then, for some reason, found itself outside of Russia.

      The article seems to be correctly marked, but somehow alarmist or subtextually escalating.
      The fact that the United States wants to take away from Russia 500 billion in trade with Europe and replace Russia with itself is a fact. For this, the Americans want to present us as the aggressor. For this, and so "stupid" the junta behaves, especially with non-payments for gas. BUT!
      Putin made a wise decision, he warned Europe in advance that the junta was inadequately secured, and in a month, if the EU does not help, we will sell on a prepaid basis! Germans and other Europeans, unlike the Americans, are accustomed to neat compliance with treaties. And then their leadership had a choice to indulge further the United States and remain without gas, or to save themselves and build new gas supply routes bypassing Ukraine and Russia. Nobody will pay ukro-junta now, the plan of the Americans is clear to everyone. And cooperation with Europe in Europe on the issue of gas puts an end to the entire US operation in Ukraine. So a new aggravation on May 2 drew. Americans work quickly. Yesterday, the UN Security Council unanimously condemned ... (!!!) Russia for the disruption of Geneva and approved the punitive operations of the junta against the South-East. So now we are waiting for Putin’s return move. And I think this will not be the deployment of troops — which the Americans are now longing for.

      why are there peacekeepers? Apparently, the Lugansk and Donetsk republics are able to cope on their own. This is evidenced by the fact that the army does not want to carry out the orders of the junta, and processes are also taking place in other areas of Ukraine that are not conducive to pacification measures. Lugansk and Donetsk need to be helped humanitarianly, but not under the auspices of the UN, and, most importantly, help in the establishment of statehood and the development of government institutions. and then announce a counter-terrorist operation to squeeze out the right sector and Natsik. but this is only after the referendum. the main thing is to create conditions for its referendum. this can be done by the forces of self-defense, provoking actions in other areas and diverting the forces of the junta from the above-mentioned areas. and there are enough fighters in Donetsk and Lugansk ...

      Just look at the scheme of gas pipelines to understand that such the statement is false.
      Or: "Thus, having received Crimea, we gave the West a lever with which it will squeeze us out of participation in solving Ukrainian problems."
      What, West and without this lever did not squeeze Russia from the Ukrainian "field"?

          Opinion? - you are welcome. But analytics? The article does not smell of it, but the pivotal idea is obvious, expressed in the words: they annexed the Crimea - they gave the thieves a lever for pressure (that is, the anti-Russian idea is not to rock the boat). However, any decision of Russia in its national interests provides "leverage" for the West to put pressure on us. Now the pressure is unprecedented, because The West has come to the conclusion that nothing can be gained from us with "cookies" (the resource has been exhausted, the restart has not reanimated this resource, Putin is inexorable in complete unity with his country). For them, we are the main enemy, "occupying" huge resources, which by their right belong to the civilized world community.

    ... If an air group of 2560 aircraft was assembled for Iraq, then for the "protection" of Ukraine it will be no less. And how many combat aircraft do Russia have? A few hundred. Therefore, no action that could lead to such a conflict ...

    I read it with increasing bewilderment ... After that, the pearl did not go any further.

      Well, I didn’t read it in a hurry.
      I thought the author was just a "typical bastard", but he is also a pretty fool!
      Is it, my dear, the Russian Federation is at war with "combat aircraft"?
      It’s really impossible to fight Russia seriously! As with the USA, for example, everyone knows why!
      Someone will collect airplanes for the war with Russia, knowing that, very likely, the very airbase itself will not be found under a thick layer of "radioactive ash". Why is there a base, some states-suppliers of airplanes, etc., too, you will not find! request
      And all this is because of Ukraine with its pastor and sectarian of something with a nose. yes?
      Yes, any "unwilling Russia of any good", including Obama, will confirm: "Fuck, fuck, drunk boyars shouted! (I.e. Western politicians and common people)

      In vain you are so about a person just because his opinion is different from yours! Everyone has the right to an opinion. I put a plus for the article for its first part. I don't quite agree with "if only ...", but it was also an option. There are accusations against Kiselev's address and the idea of ​​a referendum, but which of us does not use accusations here? How many people, so many opinions.
      According to the options of actions: my friend of the most active Maidan activists in one of our disputes told or let slip that there is a Scenario! (he told about this on the eve of Yanukovych’s flight !!!) And so. The Maidan and its victory is a provocation of the West in order to lure Russia (its troops) into Ukraine, then a guerrilla war and the entry of NATO troops into western Ukraine. Further, various vectors of the development of events (new foci of color revolutions, the introduction of wax, where else ...). All these vectors ultimately lead to the dismemberment of Russia, including with the participation of China, Japan, etc.
      This cannot grow into open confrontation, since there is a nuclear "club", BUT if you nevertheless stir up the "color revolution" in Russia itself, then there will be a demoralized country exactly as it is now in Ukraine. The president will be eliminated, the army is distracted - no one press the button will not, since there is no obvious aggressor. After the arrival of the marrionettes, all partner neighbors with a "clear" conscience will be able to bite off pieces of Russia shouting: "Well, she did it in the same way with Ukraine!" "Serves Russia right!" - others will yell ...
      How do you like this scenario ?!
      Personally, I am sure that if such things were said even on the Maidan in Ukraine, then they are unlikely. If there is some truth in this, then the GDP with its team has long been aware of everything and plays its OWN game, luring the enemy. We will see and, I'm sure, take part in the return moves to the west.
      Life is not a completely predictable thing, and the options must be calculated, and not stigmatized by people for a different opinion!

    "The introduction of UN troops and observers would have been normal. Both would ensure an end to the Maidans, armed clashes and other disorders, as well as the holding of the planned elections in May."
    So Kiev itself does not want observers, they suggested. “We don’t need peacekeeping forces, firstly we can handle it ourselves, and secondly, their introduction will mean dividing Ukraine into sectors of responsibility - something to Europe, something to the United States, which - then Russia, even China, God forbid to hurry ", - this is how a high-ranking source in the apparatus of the Ukrainian government commented to Polotinline.ru on the statements of Russian senators. At the same time, he made a sensational addition, saying "We are rushing like a bobsleigh on a sleigh, either to the finish line, or we will crash, the idiotic situation is terrible and terrible, ****", after which he hung up and did not answer it again. http://www.politonline.ru/comments/16219.html

    The U.S. military was discouraged by the loss of Crimea, Ukraine had already concluded contracts for the re-equipment and repairs of the Sevastopol port, it was enough to introduce ONE American ship into the port water area and the Russian fleet would be locked there like in a bank, it would hardly be a good idea. The introduction of NATO troops throughout Ukraine is a declaration of war on Russia, since we cannot allow missiles in a 3-minute flight to Moscow! The author suggests betraying all relatives, and just Russians, and allowing the Nazi reprisals against them?

That is why they were pissing out of anger and powerlessness, pouring lies on the referendum, completely misinforming the world about the real state of affairs in Crimea and in Ukraine as a whole, convening countless UN security councils designed like " "naughty Russia. That's why in the UN a terrible American woman almost rushed with fists at Churkin and all sorts of purulent creatures like Lithuania, Poland raged in seizures ... So much expression, how many emotions!))))) Well, the tenders on the website of the US Department of Defense for repairs at school number 5 of Sevastopol)))) Under the intelligence center. Yes, these jackals were already asleep and saw the Crimea as their own, with their naval bases, but they choked, thanks to their own stupidity and arrogance and the absolute insignificance of the junta.

    And finally. my usual day after the reunification of Crimea with Russia:

    Woke up in the morning with a separatist mood. Kneeling in front of a portrait of Putin and earnestly prayed. He hung a necklace of teeth torn from Bandera’s neck. He fed a domestic bear. I drank a cup of tea from the Moscow teahouse on the shares, and went to work on my T-80 personal tank. I work on the basis of the rental of missile boats - rental and leasing. Today I had a good day: I leased to the separatists from Mariupol three missile boats "Mirage", whose missiles, by the way, from the Sea of ​​Azov are even being reached to Donetsk and Lugansk. So, the troops of the Kiev legal power storming them today will have a hard time. At lunchtime, he ate cutlets from innocently killed Lviv babies. For the rest of the day, he cleaned the machine and prepared needles in order to drive supporters of a united Ukraine under the nails. Since I had a good day, after work, I stopped at a car dealership and did what I had dreamed of for a month since the occupation of Crimea by Russia. I changed my T-80 with a surcharge for a new and prestigious T-90. On the way home, shouting “Banderiaku - go to the hill!”, I shot out a peaceful gun of the “Right Sector”, peacefully gathering flowers on a lawn, from a tank gun. Abused the flag of Ukraine in a particularly perverse form. At the entrance, I rode a few times on a tank and crushed the sprouts of Ukrainian independence and uniformity that grew there. He fed the bear, looked at last year’s Victory Parade in YouTube, prayed earnestly in front of Putin’s portrait and went to bed.

    If an air group of 2560 aircraft was assembled for Iraq, then for the “defense" of Ukraine it will be no less. And how many combat aircraft do Russia have? A few hundred.

    Firstly, the general grouping of aviation in our country can be concentrated very decent, not much less than 1000 aircraft, but that's not the point. In Iraq, they are going to win, and they will DESTROY against us. Agree, these are different things!
    Secondly, we have excellent air defense systems that have not yet shown all of their capabilities in combat conditions, we have a very effective counteraction to massive air raids - tactical nuclear weapons used by air defense systems.
    And, most importantly, given that we are inferior in military force to NATO countries (read - to the Americans), in the event of a large-scale military conflict, we will be forced to use our main trump card - strategic nuclear weapons. And our opponents understand this very well.
    I think that no one will fight for destruction over Ukraine.
    Putin clearly drew a red line, beyond which Russia will not retreat: these are the borders of the USSR without the Baltic states. Ukraine is the second attempt, after Georgia, to test Russia for "lice". The test is not over yet, but there is no doubt that we will pass it successfully.
    PS And Crimea is not a gambit, but a dashing and successful cavalry attack! The United States did not sacrifice, but lost what was ready in their hands.

The author’s enlarged tear falls heavily on the keyboard when thinking about the fate of the negotiations in the case of the “aggressor” participant, but his heart softens the thought of the chance that the aggressor missed.
