While the guard patriots are telling how the Kremlin and Putin personally “has merged everything”, the Kremlin’s real steps show that things are not so simple.
First, in the framework of the Minsk-2, Poroshenko, under pressure from the West, was forced to soften his position within the framework of the negotiations of the contact group. And this did not go unnoticed, both in Kiev and in Moscow. Only if in Kiev, without being confused, they are talking about the betrayal of the “ideals” of Maidan and that Poroshenko can repeat the path not of Yanukovich, but of Ceausescu, then, as Rostislav Ishchenko notes, after the last talks of the contact group in Minsk, the Russian guard patriots died down: “ before the euphorically virgin brains of the guard patriots began to reach what even the Ukrainian Nazis, despised by them, felt (and some might even have understood) much earlier. They hit!
After all, if Donbass in one and a half years so no one passed, then sooner or later you will have to explain why. One may talk about the outstanding combat capability of the Ukrainian army, about the ridiculous Right Sector, which will disperse Poroshenko tomorrow, that the Kiev regime has become terribly strengthened, and the zombing year has turned the entire population of the former Ukraine into a state of permanent Russophobia. But sooner or later, you will have to explain why the super-strong (growing stronger, according to the guard patriots, faster than the militia), the Ukrainian army tightly sat down on the defensive and does not even try to repeat its successes of the summer of 2014, when it almost stifled resistance in the Donbass.
It will be necessary to explain why the constantly strengthening Kiev regime and Poroshenko personally negotiate with the ridiculous and powerless Right Sector within two weeks after one of the gangs of Nazi smugglers began to redistribute the smuggling market with a gang of traditional smugglers in Transcarpathia, where all smugglers (including the dead and unborn) ”(http://cont.ws/post/103 194).
Secondly, the Kremlin is sending more and more distinct signals to European countries that for political croaking towards Russia, no matter by whom (it doesn’t interest us at all), these European countries will pay economically - by curtailing national business and lowering the standard of living of local population. Last month alone, Finland received such understandable warnings after canceling the visit of Russian deputies to the OSCE PA session in Helsinki and the Netherlands. The Finns were warned about the forest, the products of which are about 30% of Finnish exports, the Dutch were warned about the flowers. The fact is that Holland not only exports its flowers to Russia, but also makes interest as an intermediary in delivering flowers to Russia from other regions of the world, in particular Colombia.
A logical question arises - if these guys are dissatisfied with something, then let them go out of business with Russia and smoke bamboo. We will find with whom to make money in the conditions of falling markets and a declining overall standard of living. Only here in our market the enemies will not be able to cut more money. And if they like to bark to the accompaniment of an American harmonica, then let her trade with her. As the honest thief from the movie “Green Van” used to say - “we don’t need someone else”. Or bark - or do business, as they say, nothing personal.
Thirdly, the Kremlin not only began to behave more rigidly in foreign policy, but also began to take the first steps to restore order in the so-called “liberal” get-together. The reason is the same here. Patience comes to an end, and everyone is faced with a choice - with whom you, dear comrades, are determined. If with us, here are the rules of conduct and kindly follow them. If not, then (so far) everyone is free, but now we ask for shit not on our lawns, but on foreign ones. And it should be noted that the message was understood and heard.
Since the beginning of July, when Leonid Melamed was put under house arrest, several top Rosnano top managers, both former and present, left Russia at once. Dmitry Zhurba, ex-financial director of RAO UES and long-time partner of the former general director of Rosnano, Leonid Melamed, left Russia for the UK. In Europe there is another person involved in the “Melamed case”, Andrei Malyshev, the former deputy head of Rosnano and the former head of the Е4 Group. Jacob Urinson, a member of the board of Rosnano and the Foundation for the Development of Infrastructure and Educational Programs, moved to one of the countries of the former socialist bloc of Eastern Europe. Andrei Rappoport, once the first deputy chairman of Rosnano, has left Russia and is now the president of the Skolkovo business school. Director of Innovation Development at Rosnano, Yuri Udaltsov, is on a European business trip (http://top.rbc.ru/technology_and_media/22/07/2015/55ae4b469a79477a2663e549). That is, the hint to one of those who are looking from the West across Russia has been sent more than unequivocal.
The reaction of the Russian users of social networks to the arrest of Melamed was unequivocal - it is high time. I will cite only two of the most characteristic and gentle quotes:
“It's just some kind of holiday. The embezzlers of the treasury, as soon as the investigation was intensified following the results of the inspection of Rusnano, fled, who had time, like cockroaches from the room in which the light was turned on ”(https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?&.802 117 246 571 246 &).
“It seems that the principle of inevitability of punishment for crimes acquires more and more obvious features at the level at which it had not even been seen before. And if this case will be brought to its logical end, it will be safe to say that Russia has finally accepted the amendment ”(http://cont.ws/post/101 274).
In this regard, I can not disagree with the remark of the Russian Boy on this issue: “The Kremlin does not suit 37 and does not imprison everyone from the pro-Western part of the elite. But he says to the most frost-bitten of them, compradors who are trying to rip against Russia: I don’t like it - get out, otherwise there will be arrests. And they get out. And not only Chubaysits - a whole school went compradors from Russia, starting with the 2012 year. Guriev, Aleksashenko, etc. etc. Especially a lot of middle managers who are not at the hearing, but occupied important niches in different spheres of the country's life.
Why? Because the authorities in Russia made their choice in the year Putin returned, and the elite of Russia in 2014, when they hacked to the West in earnest, and it became clear that there was no turning back. The choice was strategically made that there would be no total tightening of the nuts and a hard stripping "a la 37", in spite of any difficulties. But everyone should know and comply with the "red flags" of the sovereignty of the country, for which no one should enter. If you want you do not want, keep these flags, and inside be at least three times a Westerner. But if you go behind them and speak frankly on the side of the enemy, then you always have the opportunity not to suffer and dump from Russia. It may or may not like it, but it is a deliberate and conscious choice of the Kremlin ”(http://russkiy-malchik.livejournal.com/645 339.html).
No less serious intrigue is spinning around one of the most odious liberals in the government - Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich. At first, almost instantly after John Kerry’s visit to Sochi to Vladimir Putin, Cambodia 17 in May issued Sergei Polonsky to law enforcement agencies in Russia, although she hadn’t found any reason to do this for more than a year. Let me remind you that after a joint business with Mikhail Dvorkovich, Arkady Dvorkovich’s brother, whose apotheosis was the well-known video in the whole country, in which Polonsky compared one of the brothers to an animal unknown to science, their paths were strictly diverged, with the result that Polonsky even promised to reveal to Putin many things interesting. But could not. Cambodia under pressure from the United States did not give the poor fellow. Now he has such a unique opportunity to repent. Liberals have long urged Russia to repent. For all. But it seems they have to repent.
And recently, China expressed its dissatisfaction with the progress of the project “The Power of Siberia-2”, and even like Turkey about the Turkish stream, said it was possible to abandon this project. Again, this event directly concerns Arkady Dvorkovich, since it is he who oversees this project from the Russian side. That is, besides minor troubles about possible manifestations of parochialism and corruption, we also have, perhaps, a professional inability (or unwillingness?) To ensure Russia's national-state interests in relations with a strategic partner. Which is much more like serious.
And here also at Shuvalov, another liberal vice-premier, recently discovered unaccounted real estate on the banks of the Thames in the amount of 11,5 million pounds sterling at the salary of the vice-premier in 2014, just 9,2 million rubles. In my opinion, the Kremlin’s hints at the possibility of a serious thinning of the liberal clan inside the country speak much more about its real intentions than the psychological and sanctions war with the West. Why this was not done before - apparently, the situation is not ripe. But now one chair, probably, should be started up for firewood.
