Alexey Pushkov: Obsession as a sign of powerlessness

36
A very active role in the anti-Russian campaign in the West is played by the Russian ultra-liberals, who are obsessed with one desire, one dream - to topple Vladimir Putin. Their paranoia arose from impotence.

A very active role in the anti-Russian campaign in the West is played by the Russian ultra-liberals, who are obsessed with one desire, one dream - to topple Vladimir Putin. In this they completely merge with many of their eldest Western comrades.

One journalist the other day called them "crystal clear clinical paranoids." But paranoia, as you know, is not taken from nowhere. As a rule, it arises from a feeling of powerlessness.

If today there is a political movement in Russia, which in fact is almost absent, it is anti-Putin liberals. And it is not by chance that all attempts to create their own political party, no matter how you call it - a civil platform or something else, end in failure.

All efforts are spent on internal divisions and a sharp fight for leadership over a nonexistent movement. The only thing that unites them is to curry favor with the West and hatred of Putin. After all, according to them, while Putin is in power in Moscow, the Russian society will be closed to Western influence, and Russia itself will be in a state of permanent confrontation with the so-called civilized world.

The fall of Putin is their only dream. They are trying to convince themselves that it is very close, and do not spare the forces in the liberal war declared by the Russian president.

So Garry Kasparov, not having heard enough of Obama, says that the president of Russia is today the most dangerous person in the world and represents a much greater threat to the US than the terrorist Islamic State.

Mania’s obsession with Putin actually reflects one thing - the inability of the West and its liberal allies within Russia itself to turn it into something convenient for themselves, into something semi-colonial - that is, a country that serves, adapts and recognizes the priority interests of the United States and the West over their own interests.

The reluctance to put up with a not such Russia leads to inadequate assessments. All the years after Yeltsin’s departure, experts and Russian liberals vied with each other to prove that Putin’s rule cannot be durable and is about to collapse.

Say, McFaul, the recent unsuccessful US ambassador to Russia, even before his appointment to Moscow in distant 2008, diligently argued in the pages of Foreign Affairs magazine that Putin’s stability is nothing more than a myth that under Putin’s economy was stalled and that the country’s There are no prospects for development.

And under Yeltsin, according to him, we had a dynamic economic development and vibrant democracy reigned. Almost seven years have passed: McFaul visited Moscow, failed as an ambassador, returned to the United States and again proves that Putin is about to collapse. As they say, comments are superfluous.

Obsession is the result of inability to subjugate Russia. After all, Putin did not close Russia to Western influence. He is now talking about readiness for interaction with the West. But this influence did not give us the shoots that the West needed, and the values ​​that weren't too close to us did not take root.

And the now faded superstar Barack Obama did not find the way to the hearts of Russian citizens. He himself felt it even in 2009, during his only visit to Moscow, somehow cringed, wilted and dimmed. And he didn’t come to us again: Russia for him since then is an unpleasant, alien, hostile country.

After all, those hundreds of thousands of crowds that Obama gathered in the squares of European capitals were the result not so much of his personal charisma as of the most powerful propaganda wave that hit the same Berlin or Prague long before Barack Obama arrived there. This wave did not reach Moscow. More precisely, we did not accept it. Obama's phenomenon in Russia did not work.

And yet: not Putin creates a state of confrontation between Russia and the West. Economic and personal sanctions, the cessation of all negotiations, the threat to place NATO troops on the border with Russia and, in general, where the West doesn’t want - all this comes from the United States and other Western capitals. Russia does not close the door to the West; it is the West that closes itself before Russia.

And it closes because it does not want the Russia that we want. And the majority that we want to see in the West, we mostly rejected when we rejected Boris Yeltsin, his constant concessions to the United States, his policies that led to the default, his dominance of the oligarchy and his anthem that did not take root in the country.

Yeltsin, our liberals extolled, Western leaders patted him on the shoulder. With today's Russia it is unbearably difficult for them. Hence their obsession with Vladimir Putin.

        if grandfather Pu hadn't sat him down well, then we would still have Tsar Boris or someone like that on the throne, that's why the liberals scream, because in 2000 they themselves were with posters "vote for Putin," and Grandpa Pu deceived them all, BAB regretted it most of all.

          He began to ignore him and joke about him without taking him seriously, which showed the comic nature of the existing government. Any leader of the state, if he is not a stupid person, immediately understands that it’s time to blame, and Yeltsin was a man tired of power, but never a moron.

            The people did nothing. And under the carpet the "St. Petersburg" + state security defeated the "Moscow bankers" and the "family". Therefore, various versions of Operation Successor were put aside, and the sick EBN appointed VVP Prime Minister, and then "Acting." And of course, "soak in the toilet" worked.

            so it was put to him that while you joke and scold the authorities, the resources go west without paying even a penny to the budget.
            but how they tried to do something real, so immediately the machines.
            Grandpa Pu’s feat was that he climbed so that no one could think from that power that Grandpa Pu would later withdraw them from this power.
            and the return of the oil industry is already the second feat of Hercules.

        "Amicably" everything was decided. Power is transferred to the GDP, in return - guarantees of immunity to the "family" and the immediate environment - provided that "they will sit quietly and not arise." Boris Abramovich did not want to sit quietly - so he received a black scarf as a gift.

        No, while the EBN business is flourishing and flourishing, the attempts of patriotic statesmen are timid and uncertain. Unfortunately, Western liberals rule. They rule inside and especially odious ones are bursting with malice in the West .---- Liberal's catechism: “Either our order or complete disorganization. Where they want to do without us, there must be chaos!
        continued until the exhausted people, in despair, asked us to take power into our own hands and provide them with a peaceful life. "

    Putin is not some kind of "plush" leader, he works, as befits a true President.
    He is supported by the people, not only because he works for the good of our country, but also because we, Russian (Russian) citizens, feel in him the strings of our souls.

    [center] [/ center] [hide] [/ hide] Personally, my opinion is, if not Yeltsin then Gorbachev finished his perestroika. No, I don’t think that he did everything right, but one should take into account the situation the country was in, not without his fault, but if he had not sold the RSFSR, we and the CIS would have remained. Yes, for his rule, we fell into a complete f .. y. And I remember exactly how meticulously and he was looking for the one who will lead the country and as a result laughing I want to say, if there weren’t a putsch, then the scenario is like a civil war in Ukraine. In politics, there are no simple decisions; everything acts on the basis of the situation and the situation, and when someone begins to dictate the terms unilaterally, this is a 100% confrontation and how else do you think in 1991 could we afford a military conflict with the players of the country’s scale? And while the whole country, in a single outburst, tormented by perestroika, wars without goals, with slogans abroad will help us, the government took a course towards independence and independence, this country could be left without the external influence of an already trained enemy. As a result, we have the strongest ruler of our time, the best deep corps in the world.
