3.0 referendum

On Monday, the President of South Ossetia, Leonid Tibilov, caused a real sensation. During the meeting in Vladislav Surkov, he announced his readiness to hold a referendum in the republic on the issue of joining Russia. Although the press secretary of the Russian president of the Russian Federation announced the next day that Surkov and Tibilov did not discuss such a delicate subject, questions could not help but remain. Was the statement a test step to probe the international reaction, both official and unofficial? And if so, what conclusions did they reach in Moscow?




Since 1991, two referendums on the status of the republic have already been held in South Ossetia, but the third, if it takes place, will have a special international background. The fact that 10 or 20 years ago was only a local confrontation, of little interest outside the Caucasus, is now becoming a full-fledged front of the global struggle, which automatically raises the stakes to dizzying heights.

Of course, South Ossetia would like to join the Russian Federation a long time ago, unlike Abkhazia, where the idea of ​​national independence was traditionally strong. Does the republic deserve it? Of course yes. And with its many years of struggle for the reunification of the people within one state, and for many other reasons. In the end, even Russian rubles went to South Ossetia long before the 2008 war of the year, not to mention the long-term military presence of Russian military personnel. However, Moscow now cannot act recklessly, given the difficult foreign policy situation.

In general, of course, the referendum does not guarantee its recognition, let alone more decisive steps towards integration. It is enough to remember about what different fates were waited by people's expressions of expression on the one hand in the Crimea, and on the other - in Donetsk and Lugansk. Recognition of a possible referendum in South Ossetia, and especially its inclusion in the Russian Federation, will look extremely unattractive in relation to the four million Russians of Donbass. So, if the idea of ​​a referendum was a purely local initiative, then from Moscow, most likely, they will be asked not to hurry.

The other side of the possible accession of South Ossetia to Russia is the possible reaction of Georgia and the USA. There is no doubt that it will follow and will be very tough. By the end of 2015, Georgia had restored the ground part of its armed forces badly battered in that war. Frankly, the army is now the only branch of the military, since after the 2008 war, the years the Air Force and Navy were abolished. All these years, it has been actively replenished with equipment: Israeli, American, Turkish, and, in fact, Georgian. American money in Georgia was not only created their own armored cars, but also their own BMP and MLRS, although it is still not clear what percentage of domestic components they have and how many such systems are actually in service.

The United States will react differently, and this reaction will obviously be much more serious than in 2008. And the point here is not at all in Georgia, to which nobody in Washington really cares. The only superpower stands before the line beyond which the world hegemon turns only into the “first among equals”, which is absolutely not allowed. After all, the United States did not even face the challenge of the PRC with its powerful economy, but the Russian Federation, which was not taken seriously for two decades. So the appearance in this Transcaucasian republic of the US Marine Corps does not look fantastic. Contrary to popular belief in Russia, it was the Democrats who unleashed most of the American wars of our time. It is a coincidence or not, but on the day after Tibilov’s statement, the destroyer of the U.S. Navy U.S. Porter (USS Porter DDG 78), assigned to the 2nd Atlantic squadron, entered the port of Batumi. fleet.

Of course, even America can be defeated, especially in a local conflict in the region, in which Russia has always been stronger. But this will have to fight for real, leaving talk of "common values". The war is a special environment: either you go to the end and you get everything, or you lose and you lose everything, including your head.

In fact, the United States does not even need to intervene on its own. It is enough for them to push Tbilisi to active actions, and in parallel, Kiev and Chisinau, so that they could stand against the Russian army in Transnistria. Russia can get two wars at once, not counting Syria, where the situation is also far from simple. If we recall that the Russian financial elite is tied to the United States, then we can expect the simultaneous collapse of the national currency under the guise of "market reaction to the start of hostilities." All this will have to be taken into account when developing further actions in the Transcaucasus, where the situation is more tense than ever.

At the moment, the last state to join the Russian Federation is the Republic of Crimea, at the time of its accession, a partially recognized state recognized only by Russia. Seventy years before that, on October 11 of the year 1944, the Tuvinian People's Republic was included in the RSFSR, which was also partly recognized as a state that had diplomatic relations only with the USSR and foreign Mongolia.

    Moreover, its inclusion in the Russian Federation will be extremely unsightly in relation to the four million Russian Donbass
    Let's remember how the question was raised in a referendum in the Donbass .. There they voted for INDEPENDENCE. In South Ossetia, the question is about JOINING. There is nothing similar here.
    Is it a coincidence or not, but the day after Tibilov’s statement, the U.S. Navy destroyer entered the port of Batumi
    Yeah, on a transport plane, he was brought to the region, or his speed is hoo ...))) Like a scum dog, this steamboat was spinning near the fence.

      This is how elections and referenda are made.

      Crimean deputies voted for secession from Ukraine in March 2014 under the pressure of separatists. This was recently announced by Igor Girkin (Strelkov), the former Minister of Defense of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), on the air of the Russian Internet television channel Neyromir-TV. Part of the speech According to Girkin, in March 2014 in the Crimea there was no support for the new government. In Simferopol, where he was one of the separatist commanders, the separation from Ukraine was supported only by employees of the special forces of the Ukrainian police "Berkut", the rest of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the army "carried out the orders of Kiev" and left the peninsula after Russia annexed Crimea. "We forcibly drove Crimean deputies to vote for secession from Ukraine," Girkin said in an interview.

      In Donetsk and Lugansk, if there were armored personnel carriers of the Russian marines, it would be the same. And in Nikolaev, and Kharkov, and Odessa. In Crimea, this is unambiguous because there was support for the Russian troops, ”Girkin added.

            First, it is not at all known whose decree he executed. This is not disclosed.
            Secondly, when today it is known that Girkin is crazy and has a wrong opinion, then why are we TODAY telling what he said there?

        do not confuse the will of the people with the will of the deputies. Deputies of the Ukrainian Crimea did not want to vote for secession, this is understandable. They are the children of the Ukrainian political system. But the people immediately supported the divorce from Ukraine. And this is the main point.

          I watched it myself
          “I still pressed the trigger of the war. If our detachment had not crossed the border, in the end everything would have ended, as in Kharkov, as in Odessa. There would be several dozen killed, burned, arrested. And that would be the end. And practically the flywheel of the war, which is still ongoing, launched our squad. We mixed all the cards on the table. All! And from the very beginning, we began to fight seriously: to destroy the sabotage groups of law-abiding people, ”Strelkov said.


          Yes, they feel bad now, and we are using it stealthily.

        You're lying brazenly. Strelkov spoke very differently.
        1) It was not about the population, but about the power structures (Ukrainian) and various officials and deputies. The population, of course, supported the accession to Russia, but, as Strelkov said, simply played a secondary role in active actions.
        The fact that the Ukrainian army carried out the orders of Kiev is not surprising. This is the Ukrainian army.
        2) As you know, part of the Ukrainian military in Crimea transferred to the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation (mainly Crimeans).

        Separation from Ukraine was supported by the people of Crimea. This is a referendum. And the security forces, who took the oath of office to Ukraine and should not have interfered, except for those who finally waited in the wings. Ukraine did not command anyone - it was shown in all news releases. The Ukrainians were waiting for the same thing Kiev would say. He didn’t say anything. Review better than interpret Strelkova. They were not touched out of respect (not to the junta, but to people). Kiev tore his "Golden Eagle", for what they should have served him. Moreover, since this is a revolution (it’s not important to be shameful or disgraceful), after the revolution the state breaks up and all subjects agree again on the structure of the state (future), in which borders it will exist, someone agrees, someone leaves (Poland , Finland, which fell after the revolution). This is normal. And with the actions of fascist Kiev, the choice of people to live or not to live in a fascist state is all the more relevant. Yes, if there were Russian troops, the people would gladly support them. Yes, it will support it now, only time has already passed.

          On February 27, the Crimean parliament, with the support of a spontaneous pro-Russian rally, gathered in a building occupied by unknown armed people and adopted a resolution on holding a republican referendum in the autonomy on improving the status and powers in the autonomous republic of Crimea. 61 of 64 deputies voted for the decision. At a rally in front of the Verkhovna Rada, the referendum decision was greeted with applause.

          The decision was made by force, it is a fact. Where are the opinions of the people?

      The question is strange. In fact, South Ossetia does not want to join Russia, but to North Ossetia, which is part of Russia, with renaming to Ossetia. As an analogue: the reunification of the Federal Republic of Germany and the German Democratic Republic, from which Germany was formed, which is now part of the EU.

      "... If we recall that the Russian financial elite is tied to the United States, then we can expect a simultaneous collapse of the national currency under the guise of" market reaction to the outbreak of hostilities. "

      Most of all, this is what "finishes" the so-called "financial elite"!
      What the hell, sorry? And what, the State Power is no one? Can not at one moment outweigh them or bury them alive, along with their rotten families?
      What kind of parallel structures of administrative-state administration are these - the "financial elite"?
      Exclusively and only - the State and its only source of power - the Russian people (and not a gang of moral freaks who put themselves above all on the social ladder) - is a single whole organism and a mechanism for self-organization. What the hell are oligarchs, speculative bankers and private banks, outbid parasites and other trash? As long as we tolerate them, together with bureaucratic cosmopolitans of various levels and traitor liberoids and other collaborators, we will not go far. And they should already be ahead of the rest!
      Well, after all, someday they should start to score them!

And that’s all .. and there is no need to heat up passion:So the appearance in this Transcaucasian republic of the US Marine Corps does not look fantastic. It is enough for them to push Tbilisi to active actions, and in parallel Kiev and Chisinau, so that they oppose the Russian army in Transnistria. Russia can get two wars at once, not counting Syria.. And then the President of South Ossetia Leonid Tibilov only said that he was ready to hold a referendum in the republic on the issue of joining Russia, and not that they would hold a referendum tomorrow ...

    Well, the whole army was killed in Ukraine, the last tank Buryat diving cavalry slogans lost during the heroic retreat of the "heroes" of the Armed Forces of Ukraine near Debaltseve.
    What nonsense !! In order to roll out the Armed Forces and punch the way to Transnistria, the Crimean group would be enough for the eyes, but I generally keep quiet about Georgia there is a full-fledged military base of 4000 each in Abkhazia and South Ossetia, any movement of Georgians will end faster than last time!

    Igor, as usual, is on the side of the alarmists. Nobody says that the referendum will be held tomorrow, and Russia will immediately rush to accept the PMR, South Ossetia, and Abkhazia. All this was already, they gradually got out of the situation and for the time being quite adequately. If the border is formal, Russian laws apply in this country and the Russian currency is used (I’m not talking about Transdniestria now), then what difference does a mare have in the crack whose flag flutters over the government house? Puerto Rico is also not part of the United States, although they really want it, but they have almost all the attributes of the American state.
    And yes, we are aware of the fact that the majority of wars on the part of the States were unleashed by the Democrats. That's not news.

    It’s welcome to hold a referendum at the initiative of the local leadership, and nobody forbids postponing the issue of joining (in case of convincing referendum results) for a more favorable future (within a reasonable time interval), unambiguously after resolving problems in Ukraine, Syria (with the passage of the hot phase and relative stabilization ) and, if possible, in Transnistria and Nagorno-Karabakh (the latter two are of course unlikely in the near future, therefore it is desirable). In Syria, with the preservation and strengthening of the current regime, and in Ukraine, it is just the opposite with the change and strengthening of a new, adequate regime oriented pro-Ukrainian.

    Ossetians are an artificially divided people during the Soviet era and have the right to reunion like the Germans, Koreans. Another thing is that at the moment, the United States and the Allies will again arrange a war in the region.
    For me, a plan for entering Russia should be developed and after a certain time ........... and not jumps like in Crimea, because under exactly the same conditions the Donbass will never become part of Russia.

      Ossetians are an artificially divided people during the Soviet era and have the right to reunion like the Germans and Koreans.

      Well yes, it is. So the States can offer two Ossetia to unite with the withdrawal of North Ossetia from Russia under the cries of the reunification of the people.

        (IMHO) Only the Ossetians of the SO and South Ossetia can decide their fate in a general referendum - to unite or leave as it is.

    Trial ball? We recall: Throughout the summer, active work was carried out to strengthen the border of South Ossetia, re-equipment of the contingent located in South Ossetia, and so on trifles, billboards on the border, preparation of the ministries and departments of South Ossetia for full integration into the Russian economic and legal space . Work has been going on for six months now, maybe more, just quietly. And now they decided to voice something. What is this trial ball? However, everything is clear.
    Probably waited until the "partners" will exhaust the sanction potential? As I understand it, if further sanctions are tightened, then it’s already possible to hit your own painfully. Probably expected this. By the way! No reaction so far. Did not notice? Or did I miss? Although you’ll miss such a damn thing, the yell will ... Well, we’ll observe.
    PS And, with regard to international recognition, in the case of the Crimea, in my opinion, this does not bother anyone. And here I think the same thing ...

    On Monday, the president of South Ossetia, Leonid Tibilov, made a real sensation. During a meeting in Vladislav Surkov, he announced his readiness to hold a referendum in the republic on the issue of joining Russia. Although the press secretary of the Russian president of the Russian Federation the very next day announced that Surkov and Tibilov did not discuss such a sensitive issue, questions could not help but remain.
    - What happened looks more like a PR move on the part of Tibilov, although it can be understood just the same - the accession of South Ossetia to Russia will immediately solve for the Ossetians economic and political problems. Having become a part of a great Power, a small unrecognized republic, de jure part of Georgia, may not be afraid of another Georgian invasion - the latter are not quite so that after the “Three Eights” war they would step on the same rake, it’s much more profitable for them to fix any, but only good neighborly relations with Russia. Georgians have already hoped for the United States once. And de facto, South Ossetia is already almost part of the Russian Federation, the Russian ruble goes to the republic, the majority (if not all) of the republic's citizens have Russian citizenship, and finally, a fairly powerful Russian military contingent is the guarantor of the security of this republic. Something like this.
    I have the honor.

    "... The other day, Igor Plotnitsky, in an interview with print media, spoke about the great likelihood of the reunification of the LPR with Russia.

    He noted that people are tired of the lawlessness that Ukraine is creating. In addition, everyone sees that in a neighboring country there is peace, stability, and great prospects. Therefore, according to statistics, in the people's republic the number of people wishing to join the Russian Federation has grown from 20% to 60%.


    The head of the republic believes that the desire of the people is most important. Therefore, if residents of the republic decide to become part of the Russian Federation, the LPR government will support their initiative and will not impede this.

      Yes, the United States is to blame

      The former commander in chief of the armed groups of the DPR Igor Strelkov (Girkin) took responsibility for the hostilities in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions of Ukraine. He stated this in an interview with the newspaper Tomorrow.

      “I still pressed the trigger of the war. If our detachment had not crossed the border, in the end everything would have ended, as in Kharkov, as in Odessa. There would be several dozen killed, burned, arrested. And that would be the end. And practically the flywheel of the war, which is still ongoing, launched our squad. We mixed all the cards on the table. All! And from the very beginning, we began to fight seriously: to destroy the sabotage groups of law-abiding people, ”Strelkov said.

    If we recall that the Russian financial elite is tied to the United States, then we can expect a simultaneous collapse of the national currency under the guise of "market reaction to the outbreak of hostilities."

    But what about the beloved cheers of Putin, who, according to their cries, "raised-race-s-kalen"? Or is it all again the cunning Putin "multi-way", lasting for 16 years now?
    And by the way, maybe now, at last, it will “reach” the U-Utriots that the collapse of the ruble in December 2014 is only covered by the cries of official figures about sanctions against the Russian Federation, etc. etc., although in fact the reason is different, namely the failure of Putin's economy.

      I would say that you are not very educated. Inflation by all governments of the world, without exception, is used to cover state domestic debt, and as a means of limiting wages in order to maintain superprofits of large capital and limiting the independence of wage workers, and their potential influence on the state system. There are separate states in which the use of inflation and banking% is considered a bad thing. but such a minority, they can not be attributed to any country in Europe or both Americas. Inflation of the dollar has reduced its value over 60 years by 56 times, while he no one will hint at calling US policy a failure. The example of South Korea and Japan is even more revealing. And finally, the question of what does Russia have to do with it, what has become special for you?

    Scarecrow article wassat the author is poorly guided in the situation, and does not know how the US troops are deployed and are fighting in the conditions of the maximum restriction in contingent, rear support, and most importantly, territory. In Georgia they will be targets, no propaganda is needed.

    Well, they will. Well, most will be in favor. Well, they’ll take the appeal to Moscow. So what? DG generally cool to this issue. Of course, there is no need to wait for any inspiration, as with Crimea. These are completely different processes. Set aside in a long box or gently advise. The Kremlin is now raising the degree of tension and trolling the Zhorzhiks from the Yankees is not with their hands. The resonance would, of course, be less than with the Crimea, but, of course, it would launch all sorts of bad mechanisms.

      And then much higher? Only a direct military clash, but no one wants it and will not carry it out. What are the specific mechanisms?
      An article - to put it mildly - just to be. I quote "The fact that 10 or 20 years ago was only a local confrontation, few people are interested outside of the Caucasus, is now becoming a full-fledged front of the global struggle, which automatically raises rates to sky-high heights."
      Nonsense. Now a real economic war is being waged against us, and so everything is united here. Moreover, if Russia nevertheless considers itself an independent state, its own interests are first of all important to it, and not “global struggle and sky-high heights”.
      Further, I quote "The recognition of a possible referendum in South Ossetia and even more so its inclusion in the Russian Federation will be extremely unsightly in relation to the four million Russian Donbass." In the sense? Who will look? In Donetsk and Lugansk there was no referendum on joining Russia, so this is all garbage.
      Further. I quote "The United States will react differently, and this reaction will obviously be much more serious than in 2008." And what will it be more serious? To send troops means a war with a country with nuclear weapons. That's bullshit. To supply weapons and advisers - that was. We were weaker than 08.08.08/XNUMX/XNUMX and carried the Georgians with their instructors in the "one gate". In Russian, this is called cowardice.
      I quote further "At the moment, the Republic of Crimea is the last state that has become part of the Russian Federation." Crimea is not a state.
      Conclusion: No need to be afraid to defend your interests. But the benefits and costs must be considered. But if the costs exceed the benefits - then say a solid no.

    Need a referendum? Does the people of Ossetia want this? So you need to carry out and attach!
    And look back at all sorts of criminals, such as the liquid-Saxons - do not respect yourself!
    But who in general will respect such a power, which is afraid of bandits?
    Spit on the Yankersons - this is our patrimony, and let the striped nits sit behind a puddle and are afraid of the big tsunami and the explosion of the Yellow Stone. Because there should be only one policy with them - you won’t sit evenly - there will be no your territory.

    But the question is: why did the Kremlin recognize the independence of South Ossetia and Abkhazia, but Transnistria and New Russia (DPR and LPR) did not? Although the Russian people in these unrecognized republics not only held a referendum on reunification with Russia, they are striving for this with all their hearts.

    What an interesting discussion has formed.
    But I think the reason for voicing this news is the same - the Georgians gathered in NATO, to see everything spins seriously. So ours decided to voice one of the "horror stories" (the adoption of South Ossetia in the Russian Federation).
    And about the reunification of the people of both Ossetia, you need to ask this people! By the way, Abkhazia has been asking for a long time in the Russian Federation. And if they accept someone, then I think it will be both of these republics!

    for "appearance" is not necessary to do something.
    There is a reason for anyone: a bird on top of the American adviser shatters .. bird migratory? - migratory. Arrived from the north? Who would doubt it - from Russia. Aggression!
    Here you have good reasons for the "appearance".
    But actually sitting and waiting when they come up with a new "argument" to spoil our country is a very tedious task.

      And do not feed subsidies! Give the production! What they destroyed in the 90s has not yet been established. Adygea. Agricultural republic. Yes, gardens are planted with new technologies. But! there were few large enterprises, and now even fewer, they sold them to private owners in pieces, you won’t get them back! You need a replacement, so build enterprises, damn it! You can’t live one merchant. All programs for the development of the Caucasus were adopted. And Adygea is like a bat. We do not enter the Krasnodar Territory. In the North Caucasus region, too. But we have an embassy in Moscow! Here the Russians also want a referendum: take us to the Krasnodar Territory, we were there, take it back. So no, we are a separate republic. Tell me what to do in this case?

    Lord Nobody will cancel the sanctions, no one will reconsider views on Russia, unless, of course, it starts again - “Boriska to the kingdom!”, And, as they say, the war is the two Yeltsins. So why not take it? Or look at the bombed cities again? As part of the Russian Federation, it is safer for them, this is clear because of the growing aggressiveness of Georgia, since the degree of integration is already high. This is a moral question. And, I hope, this time even in the most specific brains this question will be somewhat more complicated than "Parmesan or 2 million Crimeans."
