I'm a zombie padded jacket. Who wants to understand your logic. I will explain why we think you are crazy. And you, maybe, explain why you consider us to be such. So, now you will get acquainted with the logic of the quilted jackets "from and to" in summary. I divided it into two fragments, economic and strategic, numbered the links of the logical chain. Agree, instead of quarrels it is better to get acquainted with the opposite opinion. In addition, the quarrel in the ranks of the citizens of Russia is dangerous for its future, and we, quilted jackets, are worrying about it.
The economic logic of the padded jacket. Less important
There are many countries in the world that trade with each other. The Russian-Ukrainian turnover was more than 50 billion US dollars, he responded to both Russian and Ukrainian interests. I hope there are no questions here. Or are we, Vatniki, mistaken, and trade with Russia, which made up 30% of Ukraine’s foreign trade turnover, was not profitable for her? Or maybe it was unprofitable to Russia?
Ukraine was handed over for signing a commercial document. We, Vatniki, decided to read it. Or in vain? Maybe it was enough to study the name? "Association Agreement with the EU". So, it turned out that the document offers a number of unfavorable conditions for Ukraine. "This is a matter of sovereign Ukraine, it does not concern you!" - you say. It really does not concern us. But! Ukraine was ordered to fulfill a number of requirements that put an end to cooperation with Russia in many areas. That is, this agreement affects the interests of Russia, the interests of Vatnikov, their children and grandmothers. Therefore, Russia found it necessary to appeal to the EU with a proposal to find a consensus. After all, among us, at the quilted jackets, under the partnership is considered not only the realization of their interests, but also attention to the interests of the partner (see the ideology of BRICS relations). Maybe you do otherwise?
The EU rejected the offer. If in Russian, sent to ***. OK. Russia decided to play its game by offering Kiev 15 billion US dollars to solve economic problems. Go, unprofitable offer? Or maybe Russia is forbidden to offer anything to anyone? If prohibited, say so. We, Vatniki, do not consider Russia a country that is forbidden to compete with other countries in this field, even with the countries of the "divine West." And what do you think?
Yanukovych postponed the signing of the contract, proposing to think it over and, possibly, correct it. We, Vatniki, consider it right. Any papers related to money cannot be blindly signed. Moreover, the text of the treaty was ratified in Ukraine before it was translated into Ukrainian. How many people in parliament read it before voting?
What happened next? We expected that the EU would offer more favorable conditions, there would be bargaining, negotiations, consultations ... No, that was not the case. The EU proposed "American-style democracy", the foundation of which had been prepared for twenty years. The signing of a commercial contract was dubbed something like a “European choice,” “a path to a brighter future,” “a path to the European Union,” and the Russophobia bacillus, artificially nurtured in Ukraine, struck minds finally (I will talk about artificial Russophobia in the strategic fragment). At the same time, we, the quilted jackets, still do not understand how these big words relate to the paper under discussion. After all, if a bank gives a contract to a quilted jacket, the quilted jacket will consider that what is written in it is actually written, even if it is called “an invitation to the world of wealth and bliss”. It does not say that the president of the bank will roll a padded jacket on his Mercedes, and the vice-president will give the keys to his apartment, even if they promise it, but ask for another to sign. For us, Vatnikov, an attempt to push through a contract with such methods is considered a deception of the people to the detriment of the latter. And we, the quilted jackets, once again made sure that the West is the birthplace of such a method of trade as "pairing". We also believe that the Ukrainians are ill with what we had had in the nineties, with blind trust in the “scammer”, who calls himself “the civilized lord”. In principle, this is not surprising for a country that has lived for two decades with a terrible, corrupt and weak government. And if a "civilized gentleman," rich and smiling, says that Russia is to blame for everything, tired people can believe, even if Russia did not repair evil, except for offering 15 billions, delivering gas at a discount, yes, it was the main buyer of a large number of goods .
Began Maidan. He was openly supported by the US and the EU. And then there was a coup under the slogans of democracy. Openly supported by the West, a bloody coup d'état. We have, at Vatnikov, there was a rupture of the template, because the phrase "democratic coup d'etat" contradicts itself. We do not accept the opinion of the protesters for the opinion of all the people until the voting passes. So says democracy. Let 50 thousand come out, even a million, let a group of people seize government buildings, drive out objectionable deputies ... But democracy involves counting supporters / opponents of an idea by voting. The words of supporters of Maidan "it is obvious to us that everything is for!" Express only an opinion that needs to be confirmed. Someone is "obvious", someone is not. Especially after the recent elections in Ukraine, when the Party of Regions won half the votes, and these votes were given by the residents of the east of the country, who are not less "people" than the rest. Well, of course, some people consider them to be lower-class creatures, "Colorado", "titushki" and "cattle", but for us, quilted jackets, this is called fascism, not democracy (if you take part in rallies that will lead to a coup in Russia, do not forget that democracy will end there, for the coup organized at your rally will not be supported by the majority, that is, by us, quilted jackets).
Independence was the subject of unrest, but was boring. We have already seen coups in rallies that were supported by the States. “Peaceful protesters,” then a group of masked people charged with anti-human ideology (Islamists or fascists), Molotov cocktails on the heads of the police. There was little new here. For example, snipers who killed people in Libya, Syria, Egypt, and even Moscow 93, under the lens of a journalist sitting next to him, appeared here. Maybe this is a coincidence? We Vatniki rarely believe in coincidences. Especially after expert opinions on the location of snipers in buildings that were controlled by Maidan and Parubiy. All a carbon copy, trite, tested many times. Most of us, Vatnikov, are surprised by the silence of your like-minded people regarding the events in Odessa.
Yanukovych overthrown. Unconstitutional. Yes, we, the quilted jackets, are probably too primitive, but we consider as constitutional only what is written in the constitution. And we can not read between the lines, so it happened. And in the Constitution there are only three options for changing the president: elections, impeachment or death. From this point on, for us, quilted jackets, the legitimacy of the Kiev authorities is questionable. We do not consider it the power of Ukraine, reflecting the aspirations of the Ukrainian people, we consider it a group of people who sat in the appropriate seats without asking the 42 million citizens about it. We call this power "junta."
I will write about Crimea below, in the "strategic" fragment. Now I will write about the uprising in the Donbas. So, in Kiev, a certain number of people committed the overthrow of power, seized administrative buildings, drove away objectionable, even if bad, deputies, sat down in chairs and declared themselves power. In the east of the country live people who voted for the Party of Regions. They did not agree with this development. Maybe they were also worried about corruption, but they were not asked if they approved of the coup. Pro-Russian rallies began. If on the Maidan flags of the European Union fluttered, on Donbass there were flags of Russia. If, for the sake of its interests, the EU supported the uprising on Maidan, Russia, as a retaliatory measure, supported the uprising in the east of the country. Mirror. Not even convex. Only with an important difference: in the east a democratic procedure called "referendum" took place. Let me remind you that we, the quilted ones, do not consider Russia a country that does not have the right to respond to the actions of other countries attacking its interests, even if these countries are the "beacon of good" in the minds of some people. We also note that Poroshenko in the east of the country was not elected.
Kiev launched the ATO. I repeat once again (maybe you have other data?). Kiev. Launched. ATO. And volunteer detachments, as well as the Ukrainian army, went to kill those who did not agree with the current situation and with those whom we, for the reasons stated above, do not consider to be the legitimate Ukrainian authority. Therefore, we, quilted jackets, call the forces of the ATO well-known term "punitive." Dissenting people in the east turned out to be many, on the Ukrainian TV residents of Donbass were often called "bydlom". ATO forces came to the east and blood poured. Russia has repeatedly urged to stop the war, sit down at the negotiating table, stop the armed campaign. Called publicly, many times. The militia was sitting in the east, it did not attack Kiev. But the "junta" did not sit at the negotiating table, believing that the militia should be killed, that she, the junta, owns the whole of Ukraine unconditionally. At the same time, we, the quilted jackets, do not understand why militias are called terrorists. We believe that terrorists are those who commit terrorist acts in the territory of the enemy, attacking his objects, causing fear and panic among citizens. The national guard came to the east and began to water residential areas with fire of the MLRS of indiscriminate action, causing fear. But I got the answer. "Someone with a sword ...", you know. It is worth noting that the tactic of "pour civilians on fire" is not new, has long been used by all and sundry. She is very effective. No matter how the citizens treat the junta, but if they are killed because their own rebels are located in their cities, the people intimidated by death will not be happy for them, they will stop supporting them or will even be driven away. At the same time, of course, knowing who exactly is killing them. Simple people want to live.
This chain suggests that Russia's actions are a response to the actions of the West. We do not deny support for the People’s Militia of Donbass by Russia. But not for some tens of billions of dollars in turnover, no. There is a second, strategic logic, much more important, in which the Crimean question is also implicated.
Strategic logic padded jacket. The most important
We are zombie. We believe that America wants to destroy us.
But it was not Putin who zombied us, no. We were brainwashed by American admiral Alfred Mahan, strategist Nicholas Speaker, adviser Brzezinski, Kissinger and other people who influenced the US political line and the "neo-cons" who are in charge of the processes to this day. What is the point? Western geopolitics (such a science that studies the processes of development of states) sees the world as follows. In the center of the world lies Eurasia - the main continent, filled with global resources. In the center of Eurasia is "Heartland" (Heartland), a certain zone, prone to expand its influence on the entire continent from center to coast, to the zone "Rimland" (Rimland). This means that all the resources of Eurasia will sooner or later be under the control of Heartland and its allied states. And resources, if anything, are the basis of life. Heartland in this concept is Russia. The Russian Empire, the USSR, the Customs Union, partnership with China, the SCO only confirm the theory of expansion of the Heartland. But how to get world resources to those countries that are located overseas? How to get control over Eurasia "sea powers"? Invented only one way. Military strategy, which was called "deterrence".
The “Containment” strategy implies the process of spreading influence on the coastal zone of Eurasia from the outside, from the sea, from all sides. With subsequent deepening into the continent. By capturing or bowing coastal states to your side, you can move inland, "squeezing" the expanding heartland. At the same time, create buffer zones between coastal states and the Heartland. These buffer zones should be set up against the center much more than coastal states. With the latter, you can successfully trade by sea, they do not have to be drowned in blood (if only those who threaten the strategy), they just need to be put into economic and military dependence (for example, by creating a military alliance). But the closer to Heartland, the more difficult. In the immediate areas, it is necessary to boost Nazism (in Russophobia), religious fundamentalism (for the Islamic south of Russia) and other phenomena that will allow using buffer zones to further weaken the Heartland by military forces, blocking trade routes, terrorist activities and instability. It is advisable to surround Heartland with states opposed to it, along the entire border, not to impede the decline in living standards in these countries and ... Here comes the war, these states will bite the Heartland every day, from all sides. Ideally, of course, persuade the whole ring of Eurasia, including Europe, to war against the center, weakening both the center and the ring, which will allow the United States and Great Britain to take the continent in their hands for a long time and firmly. It is worth noting that Containment requires a minimum of direct intervention, ideally do everything with the wrong hands. It is enough to push, direct, force and skillfully play the processes taking place in the minds of people, to “divide and rule”. A direct clash between the US maritime power and continental Russia is excluded to the extent that the US cannot defeat Russia on land. The United States, in general, never aspired to, and their military experience consists in successful attacks on coastal states using fleet.
Perhaps these strategists were drunk. Perhaps they were joking. Perhaps America is only good. Perhaps mankind, who fought for resources for thousands of years, has suddenly changed in recent decades, and the mountains have turned over. But we, the Vatnikov, are embarrassed by the fact that the events taking place in the world, both earlier and now reflect the strategy of deterrence. Maybe all this is a coincidence? Can it happen by chance that the US military bases are located exactly on the map of the so-called "inner crescent", coastal zone? Can by chance the largest number of US bases located in Germany, in the local heartland of Europe and the main state of Romeland, whose alliance with Russia is the main threat to the strategy of deterrence, and which is "forbidden" to have sovereignty since the Second World War? Can the Baltic accidentally become what is called a buffer zone in the strategy? Maybe by chance, from nothing to do, the United States laid thousands of its soldiers in Vietnam, the coastal state far from them? Maybe Georgia accidentally became an anti-Russian buffer zone (thank God, Russia managed to create a protective barrier, separating Abkhazia and Ossetia)? We, Vatniki, are not so naive. And do not consider it an accident. We do not consider it an accident to create the US-Poland-Ukraine anti-Russian triangle, initiated by Brzezinski. There are a great many such "coincidences", and in each of them the USA played an important role. It is good that we have a small but powerful way out towards the warm seas, the strategic base of the Navy in the Crimea ...
Crimea is the door of Russia to the warm seas. This is the first position in the Black Sea. Having taken the Crimea from Russia, one can consider Russia "surrounded by the sea." This will significantly weaken its military potential, disrupt the balance of naval forces, which in the future is a serious threat to security and sovereignty. Therefore, as soon as the opportunity arose to lose the base in the Crimea, what happened happened. The States talked about this seven years ago. The fact that the Crimea should not count, the rate is too high. But how did this happen?
The Crimean parliament made the peninsula independent, guided by the lack of constitutional power in the country and legislation. And then a referendum was held, in which Crimeans voted to join Russia. Everything was done within the framework of democratic procedures. Why do you call this annexation? We, quilted jackets, looked in the dictionary, and saw that annexation is the violent seizure of territory. Besides the fact that the Crimea was guarded by Russian soldiers, blocking the possibility of the entry of the Right Sector and other armed groups, are there any facts that allow us to consider these procedures as a violent seizure of the territory? Was there a war in Crimea? We, padded jacket, we believe that Crimeans themselves decided how to live. Russia only helped them in the process. Thank God, even if they do not see war now. And what would happen if the Crimea were part of Ukraine, given that it is inhabited by "Katsaps and Moskals"? If we talk about those whom we call the junta, then yes, Russia took the Crimea from them. And, in our opinion, did everything right.
Any "neo-con" knows that the gap between Russia and Ukraine is a strategic dream of the United States. Indeed, a large brotherly state with access to the sea can be turned into a geopolitical nightmare for Russia. In the strategy of deterrence Ukraine’s "reconfiguration" can be considered the penultimate step. Therefore, we, Vatnikov, this issue is very concerned. We do not want Ukraine to become the main buffer zone of deterrence, that is, a country with an anti-Russian ideology and low standard of living, ready to fight against Russia at least every day, "with all the fibers of its soul." We, Vatnik, want to see Ukraine a prosperous fraternal country, free from Russophobia. But now Ukraine is being set up against Russia by all means, including outright lies on Ukrainian TV, propaganda in the Western media, closing its eyes to the blood-curdling war crimes of the Ukrainian security forces.
This logical chain shows that the world has not changed. The fact that we live without war does not mean that the world is stable. Humanity has always struggled for resources. But we have them, but they do not, which means they will try to take them away from us. Rather, they try every day. Usually, for thousands of years tried by military and economic means. Again, I do not invent, just retell the essence of Western science "geopolitics", whose researchers are directly involved in US foreign policy. We consider the attempt to blacken Russia and Putin as one of the stages of deterrence, designed to prepare the coastal zone, specifically Europe, either for a war against Russia, or for a blockade followed by a redistribution of the European market in favor of the United States. The economic war is already underway (sanctions), hot has not come yet. If Ukraine becomes under the control of the United States entirely, and the militia disappears, the hot phase in Russia will not be long in coming. We perceive the words “Russia should abandon its policy in the east of Ukraine” exclusively in essence, that is, so: “Russia must capitulate in this war, we will beat more and more”. The US will not retreat, the stakes are too high. Russia, too, for a similar reason. Someone will survive, some will not. US can understand Russia too. But the partnership offers Russia, not the United States. Partnership does not imply dictation of someone’s interests, but mutually beneficial cooperation, rejection of the current, outdated strategy of deterrence and the transition to equality of interests. Well, hopefully, the BRICS and the SCO will take over. This is neither more nor less than half the population of the planet.
We, Vatniki, from the beginning of the Maidan said that these jumps will lead to war. We have already seen it. And no democracy, nothing bright about it. And we were not mistaken, the war began several months after the start of the Maidan. Now we, Vatniki, again speak. We say that the United States wants to war with the states under its control with Russia, having previously weakened the latter (for example, by overthrowing the Russian government), so that Russia, by chance, does not win this war. But it is better to immediately capitulate to the West, just the way you want it. That's how we live.
* * *
Guided by this logic, we, quiesters, should consider you either ignorant, or followers of the sect "The West bears only good, whatever he does," which a good half of Kiev residents entered, or ... supporters of enemies. Your words about the fact that we ourselves “make enemies for ourselves” are incomprehensible to us. We looked into the dictionary, and it says that the enemy is the one who performs hostile to you actions. Well, if you want, let's call them "good friends", ok. But what will change?
Here, in fact, that's all.
Yours truly, padded jacket.
P. S. I do not watch TV and do not listen to Kiselyov. Unless you understand that we are not passionate about “Russian propaganda,” you will not understand anything at all.
