        Right. Military cooperation must also be developed in the non-bloc sphere. So the USSR had a bloc — the ATS, and what happened to it? 5 of the 6 Treaty countries are now members of NATO. Allies don't mean friends. And India is our old friend.

          Rostislav Ischenko:
          “By introducing sanctions, US staged self-hanging act ”
          /// '' '

          Rostislav, how do you see the situation in Ukraine from the inside? How long is it left to wait for victory or defeat of one of the parties?

          The resources of the Ukrainian state are extremely limited. On the other hand, the West does not have the means to maintain Ukraine. Therefore, it seems to me, the active (military) phase of the conflict should end closer to January 2015, the defeat of the security forces, because if Kiev suddenly won the Donbass, then the United States will be asked where to take the resources for Ukraine.

          The defeat of Kiev removes responsibility from America. In Washington, everything will just fall on Putin. But if the Kiev regime wins, and then collapses under the weight of economic problems, then Washington, who has pity for the rescue of an ally, will definitely be guilty.

          '' '
          How big are the contradictions within Ukraine itself regarding the advisability of a military operation in the east of the country?

          So far, the controversy regarding the operation boils down to the fact that everyone wants a neighbor to fight, without questioning the expediency of a war as such. True anti-war tendencies began to manifest themselves, both in the east (Kharkiv) and in the West (Transcarpathia) of Ukraine. For the Kiev authorities, the internal competition of political groups fighting for control of rapidly diminishing resources, as well as the growing anti-war sentiment in the units of the regular army, is more dangerous today.

          In principle, any major defeat can lead to the fact that the remnants of the troops will move to Kiev along with the militia. I believe that the Kiev regime is on the verge of collapse in a political crisis. This failure, without exaggeration, can occur at any second.

          How big is the threat of the spread of the "fascist plague" in Ukraine?

          What does the threat of proliferation mean? Ukraine has already been ruled by the Nazi regime, which came to power as a result of an armed coup, and threw the army against its own people, at least against the part that seems to be “wrong”. At the same time, the authorities very clearly determined that the main enemy is Russia. It is for this reason that an attack on Russian culture and on the interests of Russian citizens of the country has begun and is under way. Fascism in Ukraine has long creeped out. Now we have to wait for him to spread from Ukraine to the EU. It seems that the wait is not long.

          The West continues to tighten sanctions against Russia. Are they an effective tool for influencing Kremlin policy?

          No, they are not. The fact is that we are talking about the already mentioned crisis of the system, that is, Russia, and other states would still have to solve the problem of its deep reform, or create a new one. If it had not happened now, it would have happened five years later. In essence, the United States, trying to stop or slow down the creation of a new, alternative pax Americana system by Russia, accelerated its formation.

          While it is in its infancy (BRICS Bank, the beginning of the transition in calculations between many countries to national currencies, bypassing the dollar), but events are developing very quickly. Back in May, no one expected even what is already there now. In fact, the USA, with the help of the mechanism of anti-Russian sanctions, organized a “self-suspension”: if it were not for the traditional servility of the EU, Washington’s cold corpse would have been taken out of the loop.

      Unfortunately, the article was rejected, therefore, as promised, I am posting the full version of the article about Strelkov here. In order that this news would not go unnoticed. The question "On the topic or not on the topic", I will leave for the consideration of each participant independently.

      Actually the article itself:
      According to unconfirmed information, the former commander of the Donbass People’s Militia and the Minister of Defense of the DPR Igor Ivanovich Strelkov returned from short-term leave from the Russian Federation.
      “He returned not with empty hands. He now has a special mission. He will coordinate the counterattack of the militias of the LPR and DPR as a military adviser. At the moment, there is a joint special operation of the militia forces, ”a source in Novorossia said. - цинк

      Our sources in Novorossia cannot yet refute or confirm information about Strelkov’s return. Nevertheless, if the information is genuine and Strelkova is reintroduced into the game a little earlier than expected, then he will most likely appear in Krasnodon, where the coordination headquarters of New Russia has been working since the beginning of August, and Bezler traveled to Moscow to create it.

      Of course, we are not talking about returning to key command positions, since the reasons for the overthrow of Strelkov were purely political and no one will allow the upcoming victory to be associated with Strelkov's name (they did not shoot for this), so this of course will not be a pure position of "wedding general" "who trades in the previously gained authority, but the post is purely special-military, far from the political geshefts that can be obtained in case of a successful course of hostilities, which, incidentally, will probably suit Strelkov himself, who emphasized in every possible way. that he has no political ambitions. As a result, Strelkov will be able to continue to benefit, those who filmed Strelkov will have the opportunity to dampen the wave of accusations in the spirit of "Bastards, why did they remove Strelkov", "Putin, bring Strelkov back" and "Is Strelkov alive?"

      However. here it is advisable to wait for the photo-video evidence of Strelkov’s return to the front, I would not count on Strelkov himself or on his behalf to resume constant broadcasting.

      PS. Horrible Shooters in the form of a target for Ukrainian punishers. The most interesting thing is that among all the military leaders of New Russia, Strelkov for the junta was the most hated. It is no coincidence that in the open correspondence of the editor-in-chief Censor. No, the persecution of Strelkov was put among the top priorities for the junta.

      The Kurginyan sect, which precisely at that time was actively drowning Strelkova, is now trying in every possible way to wash itself off from direct aiding the Ukrainian fascists, but it will be impossible to do this for well-known reasons.

        From this article I would like to receive the following points for myself (if the article is true):
        1) Igor Ivanovich is Alive and Healthy!
        2) He is not broken neither in spirit nor in body
        3) He is at work)

        And then, even if he secretly participates in everything, the main thing is that everything is fine with him! Good luck to him and all the militias!

      India is an old friend of Russia since the days of Rajiv Gandhi, but recently this old friend began to look the other way, began to abandon our military equipment, that they did not hope that Russia would not withstand the blows of fate, where it would take spare parts, do not be afraid, Russia was , there is and will be forever and ever, and no Americans (cannibals) will eat Russia, they will choke.
