Tefftology and Zurabovka

102
The American Ambassador John Tefft was tired of the stuffy Moscow, and he decided to take a deep breath of the Pacific air, having recently set off for Vladivostok. Officially - to visit the American consulate in this city, as well as to get acquainted with history Far East of Russia. At least, this is how Tefft’s visit to the other edge of Russia is explained by representatives of the diplomatic mission, which, in turn, are referred to by our news agencies.


In connection with Tefft’s visit to Vladivostok, an interesting fact attracts attention: for three days the chief American diplomat (on the territory of Russia) visits the Far Eastern region, and all the information resources of the American embassy on this issue are silent as fish. Not only the website of the American diplomatic mission is silent, but the US Consulate in Vladivostok is also silent. “Embassy” pages on social networks are silent. Silent the blog of Mr. Tefft himself.



It would seem, but what is actually reprehensible here - they are silent, and let them be silent - now what should he tell about each step of the ambassador in Russia? Yes, that's the whole point. “The ambassadorial steps, with a truly impressive amount of information resources on which the American diplomatic mission in the Russian Federation relies, are far from being covered with such expression, such as the fact that the American Center at the Foreign Languages ​​Library is closed in Moscow. Not with such expression, as the American embassy tells about the “Russian aggression in Ukraine”. Not with such expression as the publication of angry speeches about the detention of Ms. Savchenko, accused of the murder of Russian journalists. Yes, yes, not at all with this ...

The information resources of the American embassy in Russia are needed by this very embassy not at all to talk about the activities of the diplomatic mission in the Russian Federation itself, but in order to drive a frankly propaganda wave with a persistent pull over the ears of facts and things that fit with American interests. It seems that the US embassy has a lot of information resources, but they are all “informational” as much as the informational propaganda machine itself. About all the steps of the ambassador only after he made them, but here, too, without any special informational placers. In general, Tefft travels around Russia, but, you know, old John does not want to open up to his beloved Russians, oh, he does not want ...

Instead of objective information about who Ambassador Tefft decided to meet specifically in Vladivostok and why, in "News" a number of the website of the diplomatic mission "hangs" especially "wonderful" collection. The Russians are told that Ms. Power said during her visit to Kiev that the American Disability Act (1990 of the year) turns out to be inspiring by the whole world and more about what the US representative to the OSCE said on the anniversary of the deportation of the Crimean Tatars. Is there some more "news»About Kerry’s statements on Iran’s nuclear program. It would seem, and here Russia, and where is the US embassy in Russia? ..

You can think for a long time about why Tefft was drawn to the Far East, and chew on the topic “isn’t he preparing a local maydanchik there, for an hour?”, But now it's not just that. It is clear that Tefft just will not go anywhere, and that the history of the Far East is not something that can attract the attention of any American ambassador in this region (even if the ambassador got acquainted with the monuments and the exposition of local museums).
In fact, the Far East is a region in which various geopolitical interests converge, and which at the same time has a significant problem - low population density for the development of gigantic natural resources. And it is precisely this problem that Washington has taken on a pencil, and it needs to be specified through Ambassador Tefft and the American consular officers on the spot. But after all, North Korea, which before the new American strategy was listed along with Iran as the "main threat to democracy" ... Plus the Far East of the Russian Federation - this is the Kuriles, which, according to the allies (or are vassals?) The US in Tokyo , “Not so simple” ...

In general, the work for the old John car and a small truck, and because John is working. Often meets precisely with Russian citizens (students, “activists”, local authorities, representatives of well-known political parties), oppression of their own line - a fact remains. Not only, by the way, in Vladivostok and Moscow. Tefft had already managed to visit Tatarstan, Yekaterinburg, Yaroslavl, met with those with whom he intended to meet.

And this is where the main questions for this material arise. Whether the Russian embassy in the United States is even more modest in terms of covering embassy activities than the American embassy in the Russian Federation, or simply the author of the material can’t remember when the head of the Russian diplomatic mission in the United States met with the authorities of, for example, Alaska? - Is there really nothing to discuss? ..

When did the press service of the Russian embassy express concerns about the disproportionate use of force by the US police and national guard in Ferguson?

When did the ambassador and the consuls go to American universities to meet with the students and the faculty?

When did the ambassador meet with representatives of the “political councils” of American parties? - They say they do not want to meet? - And if it is better to ask ... Bake cookies ...

Or do we have all Zurabovs in the diplomatic corps in the USA, which even before participating in the “contact group” of the Russian Foreign Ministry does not run the risk of ...

I would like to hope that with the “Zurabovs” in our foreign diplomatic missions (not only Ukrainian or American, by the way), I bend a stick, that everything there, as they say, is diplomatically adjusted and that ambassadorial workers are engaged not only in phoning to coordinate meetings and celebrations opening dates of the embassies themselves. But for now, there is a feeling that there are only two diplomats in Russia, Sergey Lavrov and Maria Zakharova, whose activity is hard not to notice ... Oh, and Vitaly Churkin! But "on the ground" it is painfully quiet ... But after all, the States themselves demonstrate to us that it is often "from the field" and it is more effective to promote our own interests.

        It is not worth gloating when our Fatherland is in danger. It is not for nothing that Satan’s servant rushed to Vladivostok.
        Back in 1909, Archpriest John Vostorgov said:
        “Our world position and world calling is undeniable. We are placed geographically on the verge of two countries of the world, two worlds, two civilizations, in a clear consciousness of the whole past in the history of mankind and in anticipation of something mysterious that lies in the mysterious countries and peoples of the East, before with which we stand one of all European nationalities directly and directly, face to face.
        And we decide what to be Russia and the Russian people? If the people of the world, then he needs the Great Ocean, and then it is clear what the East and Vladivostok mean to us. If a tributary of people, then he can leave the shores of the Great Ocean without regret. That is why, perhaps, in the history of Russia there was no war more important in terms of ideological significance in world destinies, in intentions and aspirations, like the last Russo-Japanese war. The Russian intelligentsia did not understand this, the Russian so-called leading press did not understand this, and now, the persecution of everyone and everything that was involved in this war, which was declared an "adventure", began; naive assurances began that we did not need anything in the Far East, that we already have a lot of land ... (Doesn’t it resemble today's situation: give the land to the Chinese?)
        Stand here on the verge of Russia in the face of the enemy; stand on this stronghold of Vladivostok; face the East with its mysterious fate. But stand with Christ and the cross, and then the East, having accepted Christ, will meet with us, as with brothers, and not as with mortal enemies and predators. "

        The question is not this, but the fact that the Russian ambassadors DO NOT ATTEMPT to do this and are very even in tune with the local authorities. Although they should be in tune with the politics of their country.

          It, of course, is all right, but I don’t know - why do we know Tafft in Russia, and nobody knows ours in America? Clearly, because they work differently. Hence another question - why does this Tufft infection work, and does our pear hang around? Tafft what, they pay a lot more? So if our time is serving there, instead of working and at odds with the politics of our country - maybe make friends with the Criminal Code?

        I wrote above that our ambassador, unlike Tefft, does not work. And on the other hand - maybe it’s not the ambassador’s job to crawl into the internal problems of the host country. They gave a piece of paper in Moscow, he voiced it in Washington. And who uses what force there, what is done where is not his business? Maybe diplomacy? BUT Tefft, from this point of view, climbs, traditionally, by the way, for Americans in general, into questions where they do not, to put it mildly, ask him. And he is engaged in activities contrary to the status of the ambassador (everyone remembers his "work" in Tbilisi and Kiev).

        I don’t even know right away whether our ambassador is not working or Tefft crawls where they don’t ask him ... He is an ambassador, a repeater ... By status he must be politically neutral. At least in public words and deeds. And why would he in this regard, the governor of Alaska? So, with a nice, but stupid woman to talk to? ...

      ATTEMPT TO CHANGE AUTHORITIES - this is exactly what the main mission of this paunch was, regardless of where he was ambassador. And in any country, the US Embassy is, first of all, the headquarters of the American intelligence residency. Remember, as Evo Morales, the president of Bolivia, said: “America is the only country in which there will be no revolution. Because there is no American embassy there ...”

      Or do we have all Zurabovs in the diplomatic corps in the USA, which even before participating in the “contact group” of the Russian Foreign Ministry does not run the risk of ...


      If at the highest level the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (at present) does not seem to make big punctures, then did anyone hear about any measures taken by any ambassador of the Russian Federation to any country? But the US ambassadors have never disdained this, even in the Russian Federation, at least in some of the EU countries, I'm not talking about countries without international weight. And what is interesting is that they visit and speak and direct and criticize, and all our ambassadors, like poor Cinderella (moreover, in any country, not only in the USA) only receive all the "poor" from their position and position, instead of carrying out the necessary activities for the country.

    He also drew attention to this a long time ago. Our diplomats start talking when something happened abroad (natural disaster, catastrophe, etc.) and report that our citizens have suffered or not. I understand that diplomatic work abroad is largely connected with moments that are not recommended to be discussed. But let’s say something about work with the population that is not heard.

I assure you, dear, that this is not. And I and probably 99.99% of the population do not read and are not interested in the resources of their ambassador and embassy.

    You can’t work in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and be free from the rest of Russia, from its weaknesses and failures.

    Foreign policy, diplomacy, is a projection of soft power, determined by the policy of domestic, economic, financial, technological viability of Russia, the standard of living of its citizens, with which there are big problems.

    And only then will military power play, if necessary.

    Well, what can a girl just Maria do for Russia, if only not at regular briefings and even at Solovyov’s talk, and be outraged and say, and be outraged again ...

    We propose the following amendments to the Constitution through the All-Russian Referendum:

    2 required articles:

    - Cancellation of Art. 15 part 4 on the priority of universally recognized principles and norms of international law over Russian laws (ban on the external management of Russia).

    - The abolition of Article 13, Part 2, the ban on ideology (without ideology, the country has no goal, no national idea).

    2 articles that also need to be changed, but possibly without a referendum (if we do not correct it before the referendum, then we will submit it to the referendum):

    - Amend Article 9, Part 2, on natural resources (withdraw the right to private property, nationalize natural resources).

    - The abolition of Article 75, Part 2, on the independence of the Central Bank (nationalization of the Central Bank, lower rates, the ability to print your own ruble).

I would venture to suggest that our ambassador does not meet with anyone in Alaska, because no one from the locals wants such a meeting.

    The "people have" fought "
    It must be sent back by train. On a commodity ...

    Better a bike. And the people will know better, and the excess weight will be thrown off.

    In a sealed wagon ... In a zinc box.

    and similar statements.
    The article is about something else - why do our embassies “on the ground” behave quieter than water, lower than grass?
    Only I would supplement the questions raised by the author, - such “zurabovye” were recruited for work or they were given such an attitude - to sit quietly?
    Is it possible that only “zurabovs” sit everywhere and everyone with such a “paw” that you cannot replace and think? Hardly.
    Then why the Foreign Ministry does not change the setting? It’s time already.
    Russia is rising from its knees and it is necessary to declare itself in a firmer voice.

    Yes, not really, but is it that it was not fate to read the article to the end

    The only part of the commentary that belongs personally to the commentator. At least put a point so that we do not worry about the question of whether this is the end of the stream of consciousness, or else a wave will follow.

    So I put a piece of article under my nose, where exactly is the conversation going on, what is not clear here?

    Especially mockingly, it was as if the artist succeeded in photographic coincidence of the physiognomy of the odious diplomat with his excess flesh and his elbows drawn from frequent use, and, of course, a replica.

    In addition to the three outstanding diplomats mentioned in the article, we can also name Vladimir Chizhov, our permanent representative to the EU.

    I hope that our "dear" Jonik is accompanied by a group of our inconspicuous and reliable comrades. So that, so to speak, not "slip" out of the blue.
    And about the "Zurabovs" ... they are quite a lot of sitting in warm places. They are not interested in the interests of Russia - tirelessly like bees working for their own pockets.

    In his youth, in 90 he traveled a lot in geyrop, I had to meet with our valiant "diplomats" and "trade representatives", and their children. Crawling out of thieves' families, for the most part. The smaller part is very decent people, but their work is connected with other matters. And such trash grows out of children, God forbid!
    It is worth recalling the "embassy" of 70-80, even then they were the main degraders of the state.

    Or do we have all Zurabovs in the diplomatic corps in the USA, which even before participating in the “contact group” of the Russian Foreign Ministry does not run the risk of ...

    It seems to be so. The smallest thing is quiet gray mice.
