And we became happy. After all, our breadwinner and waterer Gazprom will start developing the eastern fields. And these are new jobs. New infrastructure. This is the development of eastern Siberia and the Far East. This is, after all, money. Considerable ones 400 billion dollars.
It seems to be fun. But the information passes. The Russian government exempts Gazprom from paying MET. For those who do not know: MET - a tax on the extraction of minerals. Anyone who wants to get something in our land must first pay this tax to the budget.
Everyone can ask about the size of this payment for the produced gas.
To facilitate the work I will inform you: Gazprom will not pay, and the budget, i.e. we all, receive less annually 14,14 billion rubles.
Is it a lot or a little?
Some time ago the president declared an increase in pensions to our pensioners. My mother, a participant in the war, received an addition to the pension 70 rubles. Such as my mother, we have typed a hundred thousand.
Even if you make an increase to the pension of one hundred thousand in the amount of 1000 rubles, then for the year 1,2 billion rubles will be spent on them. It is clear that we have not only small pensions. Salaries of state employees (not to be confused with officials) are also low. It would be possible to throw them.
Well, not everyone is enough. And not for long. But we don’t have a single Gazprom budget feed. Let me think, see how much this breadwinner pays to the treasury. No matter how much I searched, I didn’t really find it. But I found a list of shareholders.
Curious document. Those interested can read. And count foreign companies and foreign citizens who sit on our gas. Therefore, Gazprom’s advertising, which revolves around the clock on all TV channels, is perceived as a mockery of Russians (and not only) people. Especially against the background of information about the need to equalize the price of gas for Russian citizens with foreign consumers.
This is our victory and breakthrough in China. Here from this information tears well. The country enthusiastically watched hockey. We, thank God, won against the Finns and received deserved gold. Not without flaws. Not categorically. On the limit. But won. The president was on the podium. Followed the finale. Then he was in the locker room. Rejoiced. Shouted. We drank. Today, all of Moscow has gone mad. On a working day, traffic is blocked in the center of Moscow. There are thousands, tens of thousands of Muscovites on the streets. All yelling, screaming, screaming. Those. show emotions without regard to propriety.
It seems to be fun. Then the award in the Kremlin. And again, joy. But a different time comes to mind.
Awards for the World Championships or the Olympic Games in the Kremlin were not heard. At best, Mikhailov or Tretyak with Yakushev was given another military rank: captain, major or lieutenant colonel. And that's all. Well, it used to be given a car. But the orders and medals - I do not remember.
The price of the order and the medal was different. And during the Soviet times, the attitude towards sport was no match for today. And somehow it becomes not fun at heart. From such joy.
In fact, lately, our leadership has focused on the sport. Especially we relied on the winter Olympics held in our country. Goals and objectives that were publicly and tacitly defined - show our country to the rest of the world and try to create a positive image in the eyes of this world.
Well? Showed? Yes! No Olympic Games have been held in the world for such a price.
What about a positive image? Probably, and write uncomfortable. I remember the Russian saying - to throw beads in front of pigs. So why are we all starting this?
Do we live so well that we don’t already know where to put money? Or again about pensioners, veterans, teachers and doctors to talk?
That's where the sadness is. And the tears of those who pay out of their meager pensions 50% for housing maintenance.
The heart is squeezed by pain when old people in the supermarket buy a PIECE of something. And they count pennies. And waiting for the change in the amount of 12 kopecks from the cashier. This is grief.
And against the background of our festive everyday life, we literally in the backyard, people are hollowed out of everything that is at hand - from howitzers, mortars, machine guns, cannons.
And there remains a feeling of deep disappointment in the behavior of our state leaders. And also from our media. Especially from their rhetoric.
I hope most of you know that the word "Guard" has a high social, and above all military status. And the word “fighter” in Russian has a deep, pointedly respectful shade.
And here from the screens of our televisions we hear from day to day - “fighters of the National Guard”. Anyone will say that these formations are officially called in Kiev.
I will answer. They can call themselves whatever you like. But we must give them names that correspond to our worldview and world outlook.
I am confused a little by the word “partners” often pronounced by our president. The dictionary gives a specific definition of this word - partner, partner in any activity, life partner, roommate, lover, business companion, etc.
I wonder which of the above we consider the leaders of the United States, Germany, France? And Ukraine? Who are they for us? And unless in our language there were no other, more appropriate terms?
The fact that at the last forum in St. Petersburg, our president decided to play along with the public is also disturbing. He switched to slang - as if he was mistaken in pronunciation and marked the billion with the word "yard".
If this were said by a yard tramp, then it is clear. But?! President of Russia! Why is this in his behavior?
Many have probably heard of the verbal and non-verbal methods of communication. For the ignorant: verbal - hearing, sight, speech; nonverbal - body language. Gestures, facial expressions, body movements. Curious to propose to read the book by Alan Pisa. After a month, you can remove the sound from the TV, and you will clearly know when a particular character speaks lies.
So here. When you look at our president, you have a very clear understanding of the moments in which he lies and does not blush. The body betrays its master. And what observations I managed to peep.
When the president answered questions about gas, he was frank. He cares about it, interests him, for that he cares about with all his soul. But when he answered questions about Ukraine and the conduct of the ATO, he was mostly cunning.
I do not claim that he spoke diametrically opposed things to what he thinks. But all this - from the evil one.
Many doubt the accuracy of my observations. You can try it yourself. However, I want to note this. To master your body so that 100% of the time to control it in accordance with the moments of speeches, it was not possible to anyone.
There were a dozen two great actors in the world who were able to master this art. And then at the time of performance before the public. No more.
And from these observations and tears wrapped. It is a pity about what is happening and will be happening in Ukraine. And it is especially a pity, to tears, that our president is absolutely indifferent to what is going on outside our door.
It is sad and insulting from what you know, you know, but you can not do anything.
