      MIV999 - This is called the Information War! But in war, as in war!

      I would also like to add a quote from the article "Project Ukraine Completed". After the inhabitants of Ukraine survive the war of all against all.
      The remnants of the population of Ukraine will meet the troops (even though New Russia, even Russia), just as the Germans in 1945 met the Red Army - lining up in line for field kitchens and soaking up new ideology. One should not forget that a totalitarian society was built in Ukraine, and totalitarian propaganda has one peculiarity - it is enough to change the accent and people start to love what they cursed yesterday.

      But given that Swaziland got out from under the Dutch boot, and Ukraine was the richest member of the USSR, it was it that it did. The impoverished banana republic is a couple percent, but up, and the owner of the Soviet legacy for 23 years down like a ram on the wall of the toilet.

    In the section, trading in Ukraine is indicated in USD, and for currencies in Swazi Lilangeni. So the comparison is generally out of place. And in general, to compare GDP growth in percent with such a difference in volumes, the volume of GDP per capita with a huge difference in this very population is misinformation. God forbid anyone will refer to this and there will be a bit in the end.
    There are quite a lot more thorough and correct articles on the network about the fact that Ukraine is Khan. And this one is so clean to mock at the wretched. Sinlessly. Minus.

    Funny data, judging by the actions of the junta, they will make a real "walk-field" out of the once industrial republic, as I have never perceived it as a separate country. People from Donbass say that they are being destroyed in order to make nuclear burial grounds out of mines. Crush dill like cockroaches. Here. And why be surprised, Quote from the article "Battle of Konotop" what dill is being celebrated now. If we assume that those Russian Cossacks were still the ancestors of the present
    Ukrainians and they can to some extent be called protoucra, although they themselves
    they were not considered as such, even then Vygovsky’s entire merit was 4 times
    who betrayed his kings (2 times Polish and 2 times Russian), and his Cossacks
    lies in the fact that: a) he set Tatars against the Russian and Zaporozhye Cossacks and
    b) participated in the final stage in finishing the vanguard of the Russians, while
    that against the 1st Russian there were 8 Tatars, Cossacks, Lithuanians and Germans.
    All my life I have been selling dill.

    for an information war, even such a low-quality "analysis" will do ... well, there is no need to make excuses, the main thing is to convey the thesis -Khan's Ukraine. And then it is easier for all Russians. As I understand it, Ukraine is being used to distract from Russian problems.

    In general, Ukraine is often compared with Rwanda, even the names are consonant. where in 1994 the revolution, civil war and subsequent genocide also occurred out of the blue, during which about a million people died in 100 days.
    In Rwanda, two peoples, the Hutu and the Tutsi, once lived, which over time merged into one and themselves ceased to distinguish each other, and the words "Tutsi" and "Hutu" began to denote rather social groups. Tutsis and Hutu speak the same language. "Tutsis" were called those who had more livestock, and "Hutu" were like the poorer class. the coup was also accompanied by the mysterious destruction of a passenger plane.
    Then everything is in order: "Colorado", zombie on radio and TV, massacre. It ended with what the UN treats as genocide: in 100 days, about a million people were killed. Moreover, it was not members of different ethnic groups who killed each other, but one people methodically cut each other. Those who were unreliable from the point of view of revolutionaries were recorded as "Tutsi", those who were trustworthy were recorded as "Hutu", and then they were given the command to kill them on the radio. Foreign special services also took part in the events: In Ukraine, we see the same thing. There are trustworthy citizens whose nationality is "Svidomo", and there are unreliable ones - "separatists", "yaks", "quilted jackets" and other "colorados" whom the radio recommends "for gilyak". But one and the same people.
    The flag of Rwanda, however, was different at the time of the revolution. One that looks like Ukrainian appeared later,

      The main natural resources of the country: coal, wood, forests, hydropower potential of rivers, there are also small deposits of gold and diamonds.

      Most of the able-bodied population is engaged in agriculture. Sugar cane, cotton, corn, rice, citrus fruits, pineapples, and tobacco are grown here.

      Among the population of Swaziland, the highest level of infection with the immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is registered. The carrier of the virus, according to the UN, is every fourth adult resident of the country.

      The head of Swaziland is the king, since 1986 - Mswati III. The current king of Swaziland is the last absolute monarch in Africa.

      Interesting Facts

      1. Mswati III, the current king of Swaziland, is considered the last absolute monarch in Africa. Currently there are only six states left in the world, the form of government in which can be called an absolute monarchy - these are Brunei, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Qatar, the Vatican and Swaziland.

      2. King Mswati III has 13 wives and 24 children (2013 data).

      3. On all Swaziland banknotes since 1986, Mswati III is depicted.

      4. Dance of the reed or Umhlang - an annual mass celebration, which gathers half-naked girls from all over the country who want to become the new wife of the king. It is usually held in August or September. About 50-70 thousand virgins take part in the festival!

      Many Swazilandans believe in witchcraft and often perform magical rites. More than half of Swaziland's population makes about a dollar a day or less.
      In the Kingdom of Swaziland, witches were banned from flying above 150 meters. The Civil Aviation Authority introduced relevant changes in the country's air legislation. The witches who violated the ban face a large fine - 500 thousand South African rand (55 thousand dollars).
      In addition to flying witches, the department banned toy planes and kites from flying high. Such measures were triggered by the recent arrest of a private detective who used a toy airplane equipped with a security camera.
      A month earlier in Swaziland, candidates in parliamentary elections were banned from using witchcraft. Politicians using otherworldly forces will be punished with a year in prison and a fine of up to 10 thousand rand (about a thousand dollars).

    But do the Baltic states rule the impoverished Russia?
    GDP -177,4 billion USD (2013) Ukraine

    45,49 million (2013)
    3,791 billion USD (2013) Swaziland
    Population
    1,25 million (2013)
    even if we consider that 2014 is a very difficult year for Ukraine and with Crimea can be minus (and maybe not because Crimea Ukraine will never recognize and it is Ukrainian according to international systems)
    2 million people.
    That is, how to compare indicators if one of the comments says that more than half of the population earns less than $ 1 a day?
    For comparison, we do not have such a salary of 16 UAH per day ...
    if you compare in such numbers the Russian Federation is worse than many of those whom you do not consider rich, but vice versa. India is also poorer than Ukraine, but no one really says that Ukraine is against the backdrop of India ...
    In general, numbers are easy to manipulate. And to roll up an article that according to the figures of the Russian Federation anyone can worse than any African country - but this order is in the trend - In Ukraine, everything is bad!

      About Nigeria it’s already not relevant for a long time, it’s been about fifteen years ... The minimum wage in Western countries is the minimum salary before tax below which it is forbidden to pay. By the way, they have taxes of 50% or more .. Wages are actually the second conventional unit of measurement of money after the dollar in the Russian Federation. In Russia The minimum wage was never used as the definition of the minimum wage. The minimum wage in Russia is lower than the cost of living. Hence the attitude to the minimum wage as a kind of basic indicator for calculating benefits, fines and so on.
      A lot of all kinds of payments are tied to the minimum wage, (not only salaries) of social benefits, fines, subsidies, alimony, taxes, and other budgetary heresies, which are difficult for an economist to understand. That is, this is a certain coefficient mainly for social payments. Suppose in France it is forbidden to pay less than 2000 euros without taxes. This is the minimum wage. And the subsidies and allowances for them on the minimum wage are not tied up at all.
      The so-called Keitz index is best suited as a "ruler" for comparing countries., which is calculated as the ratio of the minimum wage to the average. as a rule, in developed countries, the Keitz index is in the range from 30 to 50%. In Russia, this figure is much lower - about 20%
      Nevertheless the growth rate of minimum wages over the past 5 years, Russia ranks second in Europe, second only to the Republic of Moldova. In the Russian Federation, the minimum wage for the last five years has increased 4,2 times, in Moldova - more than 6 times. Azerbaijan occupies the third place in terms of growth - an increase of 184%. In Western Europe, minimum wages over the past 5 years have also grown, but much less. The lowest growth was observed in the UK - only 5%, followed by France - 27% growth and the Netherlands - 30%.

      Comparing the minimum wage in different countries is absolutely incorrect ...

    a tool that compares the standard of living and economic development, you need to understand that Greece looks poor against the background of rich European countries such as Germany. Swaziland is not a poor country for Africa, it’s just half there and more, the population, like their ancestors lived for thousands of years, lives, doesn’t participate in the modern economy, and you cannot force them out of there, they are happy and happy, and whoever wants and can work, salaries at the Russian level, I was recently in Angola, the situation there and the level of the economy are similar, if there is no war, but now there is no war, no one is starving, there is enough grub for everyone, but they don’t need anything else, unlike the same Ukraine.
    But the Baltic states in the Union had a standard of living higher than the Russian one and preserved it, despite the absence of oil and gas, because they did not make obvious mistakes in the economy. Ukraine, in the Union, also lived better than the average Russian level, and now it has fallen at least three times, because all the schools that were in the way were hooked in both politics and economics.

        In the provincial town shops for drinks, alcohol, cigarettes, tea, coffee, fruits, cookies, all sorts, the prices are the same as in Russia, with some variation, something is cheaper, something is more expensive. They didn’t bother with the main products - the company organized food, but estimated it the same way, in general it is expensive for Africa.
        Everything is really expensive in Luanda.
