Purse with legs



I heard this phrase again recently: “Look at the map - Russia has lost almost all its friends.” And you can not argue. Looking at the map of the former USSR, it is difficult to argue. Baltic states, Ukraine, Central Asia, Transcaucasia ... Where are they, friends? A bold and straightforward conclusion is immediately drawn from this that the cause is the wrong, outdated and aggressive imperial policy of Russia. But we change the vector of external and domestic policy ... It is not true: under Yeltsin, those same vectors were completely different, but the masses of friends somehow did not bring us. Even then, the very "friends" were lost. True, there is an exception: Belarus was “lost” already under Putin, and this fact makes us take a closer look at the situation with “friendship and unfriendly”. In general, after the collapse of the USSR, the post-Soviet republics (with the exception of the Baltic states) did not refuse contact with Moscow. There was the CIS, and mutual trade ... But no one would argue with the fact that we moved further and further away from each other.

So, Belarus as an exemplary example of the very friendship and the subsequent break. The paradox here is that relations with Minsk did not turn into a “disgraceful” 90, but much later, when Russia, in fact, was rapidly gaining momentum. What's the matter? Who is to blame? But the point is, perhaps, in the light of the Yeltsin era of democracy, Russia actually abandoned its independent foreign policy. It was so. Russia was present on the world map, but there was no Russian foreign policy. The state was only on TV. And it is precisely at this time that the very flourishing of Russian-Belarusian relations falls. Then we were like friends. But by the way, even then the Father did not want to participate in the Chechen war, in any way. Neither the first nor the second, which was immediately after Yeltsin. It passed somehow by him. Friendship is friendship, and only Russia had to fight. Lukashenko was not interested in this topic in principle.

No, mutual cooperation in the economy went to its full height, but it’s impossible to recall that Belarus would at least once support Russia at a difficult moment. Gentlemen, but there was a so-called "Union State". It was? By the way, what did this mean for Belarusians? All those who shout that Belarus is an independent state are making some kind of ridiculous mistake: they forget about the Union State. Confederation, throw it to the root. For any form of economic cooperation it is completely unnecessary. But the fact is that back in 90, the Kremlin thought about the reintegration of the post-Soviet space, and so this “project of the century” was from there. But if “independence” is so valuable to the heart of an ordinary Belarusian, then why was it the most important Union State? The answer is quite clear - money. Which could be paddled with a shovel on the rights of "five minutes" of the Russian province. Of course, I don’t know what the Father told Belarusians there, but it’s almost impossible to “sell” both the Union State and full sovereignty, followed by a smooth entry into the Eurozone, without resorting to very rough lies.

And even resorting to a very rough lie, it is incredibly difficult to do. Just name: Union State. And a normal, politically savvy person immediately has a lot of questions: “So Belarus has lost some of its sovereignty, transferring it to that very state?” But for some reason none of the Belarusians with whom I spoke had such questions. For them: separately there is a friendly Russia, but Belarus, independent as a spherical horse in a vacuum, and apart from it - Russia with its Union State and other tricks. That is, the Union State is connected with Russia, but not with Belarus. Access to the Russian market, visa-free regime and subsidies is yes. - For what? - Just! In general, the idyll began to deteriorate already under early Putin, who began step by step to restore Russia's sovereignty, the crisis in relations came at the time of Saakashvili’s attack on Tskhinval, and the relationship finally collapsed after the return of Crimea to home. And this is strange, incomprehensible and paradoxical: when drunk Yeltsin conducted the orchestra in Berlin, then our friendship with Belarus was stronger than steel and harder granite, but when Russian flags flew into the sky over Sevastopol - the relationship deteriorated completely.

Somehow it is incomprehensible and opaque. While Russia was lying in the mud, no one doubted our friendship, as soon as the process of “lifting from its knees” began, a rift began with Belarus. Yes, and about Ukraine you can say almost the same thing: the first and second Maidan were the answer precisely to the strengthened positions of Russia. In 90, Maidan in Kiev were irrelevant. Russia could not offer anything, and could not demand anything, therefore extremists were prepared, but not in a hurry. And even the “Big Treaty of Friendship and Cooperation” of 1997 did not, in fact, change anything in Russian-Ukrainian relations (what was Russia in 1997 of the year?). But what am I all about the near abroad? Strangely enough, the same happened to Turkey: the economic recovery of Russia dramatically overtook the political recovery of its position (which is not surprising - money is earned faster than its reputation), and so there was a flourishing tourism in Turkey and the arrival of Turkish business in Russia. Relations grew rapidly, Turkish citizens became an integral part of the Russian business landscape. For Turkish business, Russia has become a truly “cash cow”. And it seems that Putin and Erdogan had a serious mutual understanding. However, at one point everything was demolished by a torrent. We, Russians, are still often fairly calm about money, and yet for some it is a kind of religion. So at one moment, simultaneously with the execution of Peshkov, a multi-billion Turkish business in Russia was killed.

And how did they go for it? And for what? Were we friends? Not exactly: while Russia kept its policy within its borders and provided Ankara with a market and tourists, a certain idyll was observed. As soon as Russia actively returned to the Middle East and returned the Crimea, the idyll was over, and they launched missiles at Su-24. And this is not a sudden - it is a clear, logical, thoughtful move. Practically the same and even much more can be said about the most "European-friendly" European debt: Germany. Since the time of Brezhnev, very tight economic relations were established with her, and her joint business expanded. The penetration of the Germans into the Russian market in zero years was complete and comprehensive, we seemed to be even "friends." But Kiev, Crimea, sanctions. Some strange it is - this friendship, is not it? So far, it was possible to earn good money in Russia - friendship and smiles, as soon as the crisis in Ukraine arose - complete freezing of relations and sanctions. Moreover, the German establishment provided full and comprehensive support to the neo-Nazis in Ukraine and took a demonstratively hostile attitude towards Russia. New Democratic Germany? I do not know, did not see.

You see, I deliberately cited very different examples of very different countries. But there is one common tendency: a keen interest in economic cooperation (that is, opportunities to earn money in Russia and on Russia) and an immediate “dismount from the topic” as soon as Russia actually begins to pursue an independent foreign policy. Somehow, it turns out that business is separate, and politics is separate. The ideal time for "friendship" was just the "zero" years before the Georgian war. Russia had money to buy imports, but politically it behaved almost imperceptibly. Here we are flooded: here you are both a business, and an investment, and smiles, and a handshake. But the restoration of the Russian economy (which was practically absent in the 90s) automatically meant its strengthening on the political scene. One simply automatically follows from the other. And here the reception turned out to be much less friendly: Russia, as a buyer, was interesting to everyone, as a political player to almost no one.

But in any case, the situation of zero with their growing Russian economy, high oil prices and the absence of serious foreign policy moves of Moscow was unique and short-lived. It could not go on forever. No, if Russia continued to buy, buy and buy, and at the same time go to the permanent concessions to the neighbors - "friends" we would have the sea. But politics and economics are two sides of the same coin. The stronger Russia became in the economy, the more the Russian state became stronger, the more strained relations with its neighbors, for example, the Baltic States became. By the way, the “Rose Revolution” in Georgia happened exactly at 2003. Somehow it coincided. The end result of the revolution is a rupture of relations with Russia, which the same Georgians today really want to restore. It is economic relations, separately from politics. Funny when the economy was "separately" from politics? They want to trade with us, leaving aside political differences. The fact is that the United States could not, and did not intend to, “replace” Russia as a trading partner for Georgia, there were no other free markets nearby either, so Georgia was rapidly becoming impoverished. And so they want to return to the very Russian market, leaving political differences aside. That is, their foreign policy will remain completely pro-American. Fine, just wonderful, but why should we? Are you friends with the Americans? So let them feed you.

Even when Russia launched an antiterrorist operation in Syria, it did not meet with support and understanding among its neighbors. Are they all for ISIS polls? No, they just used to check clocks with Brussels and Washington. With Russia, they are ready to discuss, above all, economic issues. The problem is that Russia has long overgrown such a level of “cooperation”, and conversations on really political topics are going on with a big creak. The thing is the very "European integration" vector. No one, even the most beautiful country in the world, can simultaneously pursue two foreign policies: this is absurd. And the European Union, and especially the USA, actively promote their interests in the post-Soviet space. And often we waste time trying to agree on a common foreign policy with our neighbors, based on common regional interests. With them have already agreed on everything. But they are certainly ready to discuss economic issues. The most striking example of such a paradox was Ukraine: a huge interest in trade with Russia and at the same time the full orientation of elites to the West. Therefore, over the past ten years, our relations have been extremely complex. It’s just that Russia is bored with acting as a “cash cow.” And no serious political agreement was impossible.

Paradoxically, Lukashenko with his “independence” from the Kremlin fell into the same trap. It is not by chance that Western politicians eat bread - he was forced to take on certain obligations, which made his relationship with the Kremlin extremely difficult. But “for money” he is certainly always ready to talk. The problem is that such conversations in Russia are completely irrelevant: therefore, in November, the leader of the Republic of Belarus defiantly otfutolit and accepted only in December, while, apparently, the meeting ended in nothing. So, talked and parted. Lukashenko did not even understand that over the past years Russia has changed irreversibly and there will be no return back (Friend Boris, friend Bill ...). In principle, to save time and kerosene, Lukashenko could stay in Minsk. What are the two most acute foreign policy issues for Russia today? Donbass and Syria. I think everyone will agree. So, our “main ally” comes to the hero city of Moscow - to ask for money. Fine, but what is his position on these two burning issues? Lukashenka openly cooperates with Kiev in the military-technical sphere (repair and supply of new equipment, supplies of diesel fuel to the Ukrainian Armed Forces at low prices), as well as through Qatar and the United Arab Emirates supplies military equipment to "opponents of the Assad regime." And naturally, the Crimea is the territory of Ukraine occupied by Russia, and Abkhazia is part of Georgia.

I'm still trying hard to understand why he even goes to Moscow? In such a situation, Moscow should not help Minsk, but press Minsk (well, if you use logic). But for some reason, Belarusians clearly hope for help. Paradox. "Help" will not be, everything, the cash desk is closed. In general, we live in a rather interesting time: the world is changing, and we are changing ourselves. A couple of years ago it was impossible to imagine that Russia would unfold so widely - from Kerch to Latakia ... Many of our friends were not ready for this. Perhaps they should hurry. Russia is moving forward, and is not going to go back. Do not rely on the country that you knew from the era of 90-x. All this is in the past. And we will hardly return to the Turkish resorts just like that. If our neighbors want to be friends with Russia, then they should be friends with the country that exists here and now, and not with some abstract Euro-democracy, which we will never, and are not going to become. Interest in the Russian market is also quite understandable and natural, but economic issues cannot and will not be resolved in isolation from geopolitical issues. Yes, Russia is interesting to many (from Berlin to Ankara) precisely in the role of a “purse with legs”, but this country is of little interest to the Russians themselves. If our neighbor loses the gift of speech in horror from one serious foreign policy move of Russia, then we are unlikely to be friends.

    Friends are in trouble, and everyone else is just business partners and it doesn’t matter what the business is expressed in - politics or economics. Such, they become friends only when the interests of Russia and their own coincide, in other cases, these are either neutrals or opponents! Examples in the history of Russia are rampant, which is what you need to remember always and at all times.

      Neither poor nor rich neighbors need an independent and strong Russia.
      Some bzdyat for their "sovereignty", or rather the ruling elites, are afraid that Russia will now undermine them and cut off all the oxygen.
      Russia is losing other economic benefits, and more money must be allocated again to fight the "regime".
      We didn’t have when allies, while Russia was in splendid isolation without any
      allies led their foreign policy lived quietly as soon as acquired
      so immediately I got a bunch of problems.

        We didn’t have any allies, while Russia, in splendid isolation, without any allies, conducted its foreign policy, lived in peace, as soon as it acquired them, it immediately received a bunch of problems.

        The late Soviet Union had half the world of allies, and he led a completely independent foreign policy. True, such unions were mainly based on Soviet non-repayable loans and / or free supplies of weapons and food.
        If Russia will be strong economically, the next "friends" will again reach out with an outstretched hand, changing their foreign policy to all sorts of goodies. And you will have to, once again, help. This is the burden of a country claiming world leadership. Do you think it's easy for Americans now? smile

          The worst thing is that the situation is exactly the same inside the country: the authorities regard the people just like a purse with legs, no more. And what is most disgusting, the people did not become stronger and richer - and remained in the position of Russia in the nineties. And until the situation improves, there can be no talk of any genuinely strong and independent Russia. Toka ... no one knows how to crank it bloodlessly. Because parties, opposition and elections are a fiction cleaner than occupied Crimea.

            On this occasion, it is appropriate to recall the words of our Tsar Alexander !!! "Russia has only two allies: its army and navy. The words of the Russian Emperor Alexander III the Peacemaker (3-1845), in which he expressed his foreign policy credo.
            As Grand Duke Alexander Mikhailovich (1991 — 1866), who was the uncle of the last Russian Tsar Nicholas II, writes in his “Book of Memoirs” (1933), this phrase often sounded when Alexander III gathered his close associates: “In the whole world we have only two faithful ally, - he liked to speak to his ministers, - our army and navy. All the others, at the first opportunity, will gang themselves up against us. ”
            “The bitter experience of the 19th century,” writes Grand Duke Alexander Mikhailovich in the same place, “taught the Tsar that every time Russia took part in the struggle of any European coalitions, she subsequently only had to bitterly regret it. Alexander I saved Europe from Napoleon I, and the consequence was the creation of the mighty Germany and Austria-Hungary on the western borders of the Russian Empire. His grandfather Nicholas I sent the Russian army to Hungary to suppress the 1848 revolution and restore the Habsburgs on the Hungarian throne, and in gratitude for this service, Emperor Franz Joseph demanded political compensation for his non-intervention during the Crimean War. Emperor Alexander II remained neutral in 1870, thus keeping the word given to Emperor Wilhelm I, and eight years later at the Berlin Congress Bismarck deprived Russia of the fruits of her victories over the Turks.
            The French, British, Germans, Austrians - all, to varying degrees, made Russia a tool to achieve their selfish goals. Alexander’s! II there were no friendly feelings towards Europe. Always ready to accept the challenge, Alexander III, however, made it clear at every opportunity that he was only interested in the welfare of 130 of the millions of people in Russia. ” So many years have passed, and the statement is relevant now.

            From the outside, I probably know better :) And if in the nineties they complained about the lack of food and the quality of "humanitarian aid", now they complain about the lack of parking for cars, traffic jams, the ban of Parmesan ... So that I live like this! :)

              ... and not from the outside, it’s also normally visible bully ... before, preparing for difficult times of crisis, people bought bags of sugar, cereals, salt and canned food, and now refrigerators, plasma and laptops ... and after that everyone cries that the standard of living has dropped incredibly, some kind of nonsense ... I judge my city, more precisely by cars, compared to 2007-2010, "trash" on the roads is almost invisible, there are a lot of fresh and new cars, it is clear that they take credit for a fig, but again they take loans for a reason, so they have more less stable income ... the same situation with real estate: houses are growing like mushrooms and they are not standing or empty, KTO_TO buys all the apartments! But damn everything is so expensive! request

              everything rose overnight, this does not happen. Although there is nothing to whine.
              I live in a small city with a population of 22 thousand people, 25 years ago in the city there were no more than 2 dozen cars and all domestic cars,
              now in every yard, microdistrict, there’s no place to step from parked cars
              and at the heart of their foreign cars. Here is the standard of living in modern Russia.

            Well, okay ... You write the same "people stayed in the 90s" ... I didn't dream of a car and an apartment in the 90s, I took a computer on credit for 2 years and the monthly payment for it was 30% of the salary, and I took only half of its cost! ))) I remember my mother in 1998 when she was shocked when sunflower oil went up in price, it was all imported then ... A bottle of oil was tangible for our family budget then !!! Now, no matter how screaming podniks, but the people in Russia began to live better, of course, this is evidenced by the growth in car sales from year to year, and the growth in the volume of housing under construction and the growth in agriculture and in all industries ... there are Russian products, even coffee beans ... Yes, we have a lot of problems and there is corruption and the cops are squeezing out the business, but all this is also in other countries ... The main thing. that now in Russia there is everything for human development and for making money and for protecting our rights and freedoms ... You just need to live and fight ... This is our country ... We are building it and making it rich, and not some kind of person in The Kremlin ... He is just our leader, but a lot depends on him, but not everything ... And we only need to rely on ourselves!

              I absolutely agree with you - our life is the way we make it ourselves. And you don't have to wait for someone in the Kremlin (in my case, on Daukanto Square, Vilnius) to come and do you well. The clearest example of such paternalism before our eyes is Ukraine. They, too, all jumped and waited that now "we will be Euro-associated and live!" Russia, firmly on its feet, is a balm for the soul for us, Russians, living in the Troebals!

          OK - let's take the same beloved by all of Ukraine - Russia provided it with industrial orders, military equipment at low prices, jobs for the unemployed Ukrainians and (until a certain moment) cheap gas. Plus could well protect militarily (always)

            Old Man is playing "multi-vector" like Yanukovych, wants to gain a foothold in power. The truth does not understand that no twisting of the nuts will help and no "nepotism". The Soviet Union possessed absolute military and police power, but could not use it. By the way, Putin repeats this mistake, indulging "equidistant oligarchs" and not solving really glaring economic and social problems inside the country. Therefore, China, after Medvedev's visit, criticized our Government. By the way, I am grateful to China for this, he played along with Putin in this matter, so that he would remove Dima and not be responsible for this. BUT Putin did not understand such a cunning Chinese beacon. Or ignored.

        We didn’t have when allies, while Russia was in splendid isolation without any
        allies led their foreign policy lived quietly as soon as acquired
        so immediately I got a bunch of problems.

        Do you think the US has allies? in reality, they are satellites that look into the mouths of the US elites and act in the wake of American politics. Moreover, if only recently (the invasion of Iraq) Germany and France could express their dissenting opinions and not participate in the intervention, now this is not even a question - they act on the principle of "what you please", and even against their own interests.
        Among the allies of the United States, one can call Israel a stretch, and in this case, the United States is not ready even one iota to take into account its interests, but not to promote these interests in its policy. And Israel can be called an ally of the United States only because of the possibility of the Jewish lobby in the United States to somehow advance the interests of Israel. If (or when) these opportunities diminish due to the strengthening, for example, of the Arab lobby, the interests of Israel will be thrown aside by the USA as well as the interests of Europe.
        In reality, we have the following - with the collapse of the Union, the socialist bloc collapsed, but the United States continues a policy that has become not just confrontational - it was before - it is clearly aimed at world domination, at promoting exclusively its own interests. And in this case there can be no allies - only one should rule in the world.
        Therefore, Russia also has no allies: everyone cares, first of all, about their own interests, about their "warm mink", about how to build relations with the United States most painlessly for themselves. But I think that the situation in the world will gradually change, and this will happen with the strengthening of China. True, it is possible that China in promoting its own interests will be no different from the United States. But Russia needs to be led in the same way: first - its own interests, and then - everything else.

        He wrote well and heartily - bzdyat for his "sovereignty". I do not believe in the sincerity of any of the last survivors of the USSR. The empire was not collapsed at once. All the "leaders" of the fragments of the USSR are not accidental. Thank God (the surviving servicemen) that Russia resisted. Other separatists took less action. I don’t believe Old Man as psychiatry doesn’t believe conditionally reasonable, not connected only because there weren’t enough straitjackets.
        bzdyat not for their "sovereignty", bzdyat because of idleness (they were brought down as members of the CPSU in formation because of its lack of jurisdiction).

      Friends are in trouble, and everyone else is just business partners and it doesn’t matter what the business is expressed in - politics or economics. Such, they become friends only when the interests of Russia and their own coincide, in other cases, these are either neutrals or opponents! Examples in the history of Russia are rampant, which is what you need to remember always and at all times.

      There is an opposite, more, I believe, a suitable proverb for this situation: "Friends are known in joy." When your growth begins and success accompanies you, it immediately becomes clear who is a friend and who is a "partner". A friend will share the joy, "partner" will do nasty things)

        Since the new year in Minsk, more than 4000 people have been reduced, and this is only the beginning. Engineering, construction, and then collective farms without subsidies, everything will fall.
        And to our misfortune, as you put it, Uncle Vova and the company all understand this very well.
        Happy New Year everyone.

    The author does not quite understand what friendship is, friendship can be between people and between states only mutual interests. Relations between Russia and Belarus cannot be interstate, we are one whole divided by defeat in the Cold War, and all speculations on this bring harm. Russia is not entirely intelligible It measures its condition with its capabilities and its needs.

      I agree with you, Oleg hi !

      The Kremlin’s foreign policy does not correspond to a weak economy. Now, if 7% growth continued from 2008 to 2015 years ... And for me it is not clear why there is no such growth? There are development needs, foreign exchange reserves of more than 300 billions of dollars, the unoccupied population (or busy nonsense) to hell; natural resources are vast. Well, what's stopping you? In my opinion, hinders the path of development. We don't even have a damn capitalism. Feudalism is here. Good king father. The bad boyars, set by the untouchables by someone unknown to them, until they sell the king-father.

      I will add - the author does not quite understand the essence of the problems of the relationship of the former in the same family. Here is just one. Well, who can say that together it was better? After all, he will immediately be asked his question - what the hell did they run up to?

    Lukashenko openly cooperates with Kiev in the military-technical sphere (repair and supply of new equipment, supply of diesel fuel for Ukrainian Armed Forces at low prices), and also through Qatar and the UAE, supplies military equipment to “opponents of the Assad regime”

    And who supplied and is supplying electricity to the Ruin, coal at low prices on credit, gas at discounts, and has not imposed a single sanction against the Ukrainian Nazis? "Our friends from Saudi Arabia" also did not Lukashenko said, and he did not try to conclude multibillion-dollar contracts for the supply of weapons to her. Why should he be holier than the Pope?

    I will express myself a little in another aspect. Two years ago, my salary was a little more than $ 1500, and now it is a little more than $ 500. It turns out that I was robbed during this time? From the "blue screen" they tell me - the prices in rubles do not change, such as what are you dissatisfied with? But the average check in a store (to buy for a week) has grown from 800-1100 rubles to 1500-2000. But the prices haven't changed. I was on the 55th anniversary of my native research institute, as there was devastation - and it remained.
    What am I doing? Moreover, the state is precisely an instrument for earning money. The whole question is, to whom does it earn it? Rothenberg? Personally to the emperor? As a layman, I don’t give a damn about it, but exactly until my thin philistine soul suffers from this. The people honor - they will say: “Well, we’ve entangled the revolution with the philistines’ threads ... Rather, turn the canapes over their heads ... ”But do not forget that we are all philistines, and if the state continues its domestic policy in the same vein, I’m afraid that Maidan will become possible not only in Kiev. After all, if you rob a person at all, he ceases to value peace and security. And he will go to the Maidan not for a better life (they are not handed out on the Maidan), but simply for the purpose of "that these reptiles would feel sick." And it doesn’t matter who the bastard is there.
    Russia is a unique country - all over the world, colonial acquisitions have a positive effect on the titular nation - with us, unfortunately, the other way around ...

Do you know how much a junior researcher gets after the institute? - 11. And this, you think, is a decent salary for a man who, after five years of studying, solves non-trivial tasks every day? This is not a factory, my dear, you will not go to a master and you will not cry for a technologist, you will not consult. And to leave - I will leave. If I’m going to go out, I’ll dump.

    I have been thinking exactly the same for several years now, and all this time I have been amazed at the Belarusian ruler: this one is not going to learn from the mistakes of others, either the example of Yanukovych, who is ridiculous and the example of Erdogan, who lost friendship with Russia at the moment, he is not being taught. He believed in the power of his exclusivity and unsinkability, but in vain. The time now on the planet is such that more significant figures are sacrificed, and its place in world politics is approximately at the level of the Baltic blots on the map. He visited Minsk and was unpleasantly surprised by the large number of people who easily repeat out of place and out of place - Belarus is not Russia. Doesn’t resemble anything? Yes, I don’t need you for nothing, live as you want, only pay for the tables at the restaurant, and do not ask me to do this. I do not need friendship for money.

      Thanks for the sensible comment - I also wonder why Lukashenka does not learn from the example of Janek ??
      Well, not-n-t-tno! Janek, unlike father, was a 100% legitimate president and not "the last dictator of Europe." And yet. And dad is just the last dictator. Is he out of his mind? By the way, I treat Yanukovych 2 times better than Lukashenka: Vitya NEVER swore his love for Russia. And I didn't tell anything about friendship.

      He believed because of his exclusivity and floodability, but in vain. Now the time on the planet is such that they donate more significant figures,


      Here I am talking about the same thing - for some reason it does not fit in his head that they can simply "drain" him. And you won't be able to get offended - he is not a "pro-Russian politician", he just has such an excuse.

      Building relations with the “Belarusian“ brothers ”is the business of the special services (the propaganda department under the Central Committee, as it was called under the USSR), if you just leave the vacuum, they will fill the vacuum, with a small investment they will make a second dill. It is necessary not to “be friends” with “brothers”, but to squeeze Your Interest cynically and technically, not pump them up with free oil, but put them on the counter - “brothers” will understand this language better!

    The error in the article was laid initially.
    Looking at a map of the former USSR, it's hard to argue. Baltic States, Ukraine, Central Asia, Transcaucasia ... Where are they friends?

    These republics were friends only on paper. I judge by the army and the stories of acquaintances who visited these republics in Soviet times. They did not like the Russians there, to say the least. And they always lived in their own way.
    But the final article - to the point. We are changing fast, recovering and striving forward. And the neighbors do not have time to react.

    Yes, we, Russians, never had friends, during the Soviet era, there were satellites gnawing from our table. As soon as the cornucopia dried up, friends ran out, and others turned into enemies worse than the Wehrmacht during the Second World War. We started to respect a little when we started bombing someone, that's a paradox, you feed them - they quietly hate, you launch missiles on your head - they respect and are ready for dialogue. The P! Ndos seem to have understood this a long time ago and are using it all, for example, Ukraine - they literally pray for them, and the Russians are bad, because they still somehow exist on our energy resources. There are no friends - there are partners, and they are bad or very bad, and some of them must be bombed for prevention, with the other part, try to trade, then change places, so as not to become exalted.

Let in the coming year all relationships with so-called "friends" get on track only on the basis of an economic basis, and not on a parasitic basis, when looking into the eyes they squeal that they are friends, but in fact, when you turn away, you are ready to gnaw your throat because of the denial of money.

    Why is the emphasis placed on Chechen companies and the alleged refusal of Belarus to take part in them?
    But because it was internal conflicts and the involvement of another state, even if a union, but of another external, it would be wrong. It is enough to recall the intervention of the Entente countries on the shoulders of the White Guards.

This is, firstly, and secondly, Chechnya is the INTERNAL AFFAIR OF RUSSIA. This is not a war, but a counter-terrorist operation. As far as I remember, from EBNya to Father’s requests for help, as from Assad to GDP wasn’t. Thirdly, Belarusians were and are not needed in Chechnya, first of all, to our leadership. Imagine that a federal group receives a stop order for the militants to go out along the purchased corridor, and then the Belarusians crushed them into cabbage. It is unlikely that anyone would pay them, and I think that they might not have taken it. Not so, IMHO, rotten Belarusians.

You see, it seemed strange to him that people in uniform were doing something other than killing their own kind. So he drove away ... With the words "and we will add to the civilians" .. But he did not add ... And here I am sitting at the festive reading of orders and see that I was crawling - gray heads. Another third are people already in years ..

      Did it bother you that I equalized my salary with km to dollar? So I take an example from the Ministry of Finance and Rosstat ... When they count oil prices and GDP in rubles - and I will go to the public.

      And as for the colonies and the human relationship to them - you are an example of "brothers-Ukrainians" allowed to have their own opinion have a powder keg at your side.

    Colleagues, in the next article everything is laid out on shelves. Americans, with 5% of the world's population, 50% of the resources are consumed. That is, so that the average American could hardly cram the sixth hamburger into himself and crawl into an expensive fitness, get rid of obesity, several people in Africa must die of hunger. Such arithmetic is quite suitable for America. Such arithmetic does not suit Russians at all. America is trying to make the whole world live by the laws of such arithmetic. The Russians do not want to live like that. America is the most powerful and influential modern empire and is trying to bend the Russians, as it bent the rest of the world. The Russians do not bend as America wants. Hence all our troubles. Bend down and make your life easier? Or to deal with uncertain prospects? It's up to us.

What, no one knew that Turkey supports, treats and trains militants for Chechnya? They knew, but continued to go to the resorts of Turkey and leave money there. They continued to do business with them. Just ashamed of such fellow citizens.

    The author runs into Father in vain. In fact, we had quite enough strength to deal with the terrorists in Chechnya on our own. And to send my soldiers to war, where treason reigns, and I would not take his place either. So, it is better not to bring charges against Chechnya to Lukashenka. As for the reasons for the "divorce", which, in principle, is not at all final, But Father protects Belarusian enterprises, which our oligarchs have laid their eyes on. And this is also quite true. As long as Belarus has sovereignty, oligarchic jackals can only snap their teeth and I can only applaud Lukashenka. As for the recognition / non-recognition of the unrecognized republics, Father perfectly understands that from the recognition of Abkhazia or New Russia by Belarus nothing will change, and no one will pay attention. They will say the maximum that the next Russian satellite has recognized. But he will make himself ill. Russia is strong, so let it solve the problems it got involved in. Something like this he can count. Although, of course, I would not have done this in his place. On the one hand, no matter how much he treads his industry, he has nowhere to retreat and will still be torn apart. if not our oligarchs, then Western TNCs. Therefore, the real question is to surrender all assets, but with maximum bonuses, for yourself or for the people, as anyone is closer to. Also with the support of foreign policy steps. As they say, he called himself an ally - get into a fight. And if you start to show your teeth and cheat, you can outsmart yourself. Gaddafi's example is still very, very fresh. The guy is really wise, without a joke, but he was too clever, he decided that everything was over with Russia and that he was under the West for years. And when they began to kill him, Russia did not come to the rescue. Unlike Gaddafi, the Assads - perhaps not so smart, but loyal, so they are rewarded for loyalty - Russia did not surrender them. But this is already Lukashenka's own business. Maybe he understands everything I said, maybe he soberly assesses the qualities of our oligarchic elite and tries to preserve sovereignty, taking mortal risks. By nature, I would say that it is very possible.

      To support the same politician who in Europe of the 21st century "disappears" of his opponents, I would also not be in anyone's place.

      Alas - the train is gone.

      But father protects Belarusian enterprises, in which our oligarchs put their earning eyes. And this is also quite true.


      As in Ukraine, they will not get angry Russian oligarchs-they go bankrupt, and the people will fly together on the street.

      But father perfectly understands that the recognition of Abkhazia or Novorossia by Belarus will not change anything, and no one will pay attention. They will say the maximum that recognized the next Russian satellite. But the smut himself he will profit. Russia is strong, so let it solve the problems it has gotten into.


      And let Belarus itself solves the problems it has gotten into. Is it logical Why do we need smut with Lukashenko's support? Let's define: we or together or separately.

      Therefore, the real issue is to surrender all the assets, but with maximum bonuses, for yourself or for the people, so as to whom it is closer.


      He never really thought about the people. Its assets to date have greatly "faded" and Russia is not as interested in Russia as 10 years ago. Westerners do not need his "assets" for nothing.

      Perhaps he understands everything I have said, maybe soberly assesses the qualities of our oligarchic elite and is still trying to preserve sovereignty, taking a deadly risk.

        As in Ukraine, they will not get angry Russian oligarchs-they go bankrupt, and the people will fly together on the street.


        Well, such an option is possible, but Father will already be by this time anyway.


        And let Belarus itself solve the problems that it got into. Is it logical?


        Not logical. Belarus is our outpost and we MUST defend it in order to fight not on our territory if necessary. At the same time, of course, the independence of this outpost should be limited. What the Kremlin is doing along with the oligarchs.

        He never really thought about the people.


        Perhaps I did not look into his head. It is possible that he simply understands that for a long and happy reign, the people should be more or less satisfied.

        Its assets to date have greatly "faded" and Russia is not as interested in Russia as 10 years ago. Westerners do not need his "assets" for nothing.

    I have a very twofold attitude towards the Old Man. On the one hand, preserving an almost socialist face for the people is kind of good, but if you dig a little deeper ... It turns out that the Old Man is struggling to defend his economic (and his political) sovereignty by all available means. The opposition, and not only it, from time to time spends its holidays on the bunks, private business is obliged to systematically “divide”, companies controlled by the Old Man are at least a dime a dozen. It is perfectly clear that money is needed to maintain a high level of social support for the population. It is completely clear that the Old Man does not have a super-genial plan where to get this money, so he uses every opportunity to make money. It’s as if I’m not even so much soared by the idea of ​​an internal Russian price tag for hydrocarbons for a union state, something else soars me, something that the author correctly correctly noted in principle. It turns out that the union state of Belarus is like a nipple, blow it there, back - ... But no, if, as the saying goes, wherever it went, if they just consumed hydrocarbons for their own needs at low prices, this is practically not a problem. The trouble is that getting cheap hydrocarbons, they are immediately exported. There is competition, the Russian Federation without export duties, they neatly go to the budget of the Republic of Belarus at best. Nicely. But what just kills me is the “joint ventures” in the “free economic zones of the Republic of Belarus”. This is darkness, it’s just almost undisguised smuggling, due to which Belarus and Old Man are fed. Any product is imported, repackaged (ideally, on paper, but in fact you can only stick a tag), and the Belarusian duty-free goods are ready for double bass on the Russian market. At work, I came across this system as a co-founder of a (failed) similar joint venture. Scales are fucking. Tax incentives are damning, loot is shredded on rents in the free trade zone and in volumes, between the lines they made it clear that all activities are under proper control. It became somehow very, very disgusting. Something I did not meet so that the MTZ RF tractor would buy from Belarus for rubles, let’s say, it would be equivalent to 10000 dollars, and then sell it to third countries for 20000 dollars. Exactly the opposite. The wooden MTZ 75, which I cannot reach the customer on my own, is sold for $ 15000. I understand that the same price for the Russian Federation, because it is the export price of the plant. So, in an American online store, again owned by the Old Man-owned structure, the price of this tractor is $ 11000. I understand that this is the price for the market (although I wouldn’t have paid so much, the Indian Mahindra of the same quality is half the price, very decent Brazilians are slightly cheaper (the American price), and surprisingly hardy Polish “designers” at that the same price), and for the “union” consumer, which is the Russian Federation, and which absorbs 95 percent of wooden products, molded as at the end of the quarter, when you need to give a monthly plan for technologies of the middle of the last century in three days, you can break the price tag up, percentages by 40. In general, some selfish economic activity is obtained. There are practically no real steps (well, I can’t remember, even kill), one scam. And the result of all this policy of economic feeding of crooks will be the same as in dill. No matter how much the wolf feeds ... If the regime’s obvious goal is grandmothers to maintain power, then you must either pay or forget about the union state.

    "Anyone who speaks Russia for Russians ... just xxx or provocateurs" - said the Tsar of the Russians.)
    The question is, if Russia is not for Russians, then for whom is it?
    80% of the country's population is Russians, but Russia is not for them, therefore it is for 20% of non-Russians. Behind each of the 20% of non-Russians is either its own "independent country" and "national republic". Therefore, the questions "why so many" fraternal peoples "are feeding on us" should not arise, because Russia is for them.
    And if you were born one of 80% of Russians and you do not have the right childhood friends from small but very proud countries and republics, then you are simply out of luck, all claims to your parents. And questions are also to them, they were so proud of the "friendship of peoples" when all friends are sitting on their necks, and if something happens - tobacco apart, and in every crook they saw a "brotherly people" who gladly spoiled the available white girls and took debt without refund. Now that's what, bear with it.

    For the West, in a hidden sense, the countries of Ukraine and Belarus never existed and do not exist. For them, these are the parts of Russia that they set out to tear off. It will turn out to be torn off and they will immediately begin the operation to detach new parts (Kaliningrad and beyond).
    Why is the separation of Ukraine and Belarus from Russia in the first place for the West?
    Yes, because they live not in separate nations from the Russian and Russian people.
    They divide the Russian people and then set them against Russia. The Russians kill the Russians and the West rejoices that the Russians are getting smaller.

    Therefore, any ruler of Ukraine or Belarus who is trying to shove their population into the EU is a fierce enemy for Russia and Russians.
    He essentially steals from Russia a part of the Russian people and sells it to the West in exchange for privileges for himself in the Western environment.

    No need to exaggerate the obvious and prove the axiom, Russia has never had friends and never will.
    Smiling in the face, with a successful combination of circumstances for themselves, all our "friends" turn their backs on us or keep silent or promise to support someday, but not now. Our "friends" are POLITICAL Dwarfs, with rare exceptions, who always focus on trading themselves to the strongest.

And not always the interests of the country as such coincide with the interests of corporations. Here, corporations simply use statehood mechanisms for their own purposes. It follows that the SGA, as a state, is guided in its policy by the interests of, above all, these TNCs! And therefore, the interests of the peoples of other countries for SGA politicians are not any restriction in their activities, therefore, the destruction of statehood of countries, both violent (BV, Ukraine) and peaceful (EU example) is advantageous primarily by the very transnational corporations that become above statehood of these former countries.

    In plain text, without nodding at ranks and estates, and without fear of losing face in someone’s eyes ...
    But for some reason, Belarusians clearly hope for help. Paradox. There will be no "help", everything, the cash desk is closed.

    These are the highlighted words who said? Wallet owner? Anyone who decided that the indexation of pensions of working retirees is an impermissible luxury for the wallet? Someone who still cannot fill it with progressive and not impersonal taxes? The one who turns a blind eye to the billions flowing out of the country to the "necessary" friends, partners, relatives?

    In general, we live in an interesting enough time: the world is changing, and we ourselves are changing. A couple of years ago it was impossible to imagine that Russia would expand so widely - from Kerch to Latakia ...

    I will not clarify about the world. I will say about the man. His ideals and worldview change depending on the availability of food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Simply, love comes and goes, but you always want to eat. Now about Russia. More recently, its borders were even wider and more abundant interests ...BUT!!! Maybe enough to expand, it's time to look at yourself from the inside ... what

    Many of our friends were not ready for this.. Perhaps they should hurry. Russia is moving forward, and is not going to go back.

    Not ready for what? For the fun of Rospotrebnadzor? Towards a more cynical and deceitful approach in resolving issues where you need to decide on your allies? Oh, what is it? A friend is known in what? Maybe it is worth choosing friends by spirit and blood, and not by the thickness of the wallet and the length and roughness of the tongue?

    Centuries go away urgently
    The duel will disappear to the end

    Russia does not need such an ally as Lukashenko. It is high time that this traitor was squeezed out of power by financing the opposition, which is oriented towards the entry of White Russia into Great Russia as a province and in no other way. Otherwise, we will sooner or later get the outskirts-Ukraine in its current form. Lukashenka needs to stop financing altogether, he has long been ready to betray for money and is waiting for a bigger one. And a fourteen-year-old son in a general's uniform? Even the heir to the throne, Alexei Nikolayevich, could not afford this. It is a pity that this is not obvious to the native Foreign Ministry, headed by the most mediocre minister of all time in Russia (with the exception of the obvious traitor Kozyrev), who completely failed all of Russia's foreign policy. Not a single ally, only eternal endless voyages and the result is zero. Kerry’s last visit, the advertised successes in the press, and, in fact, a puffer, however, as always at the laurel, are especially touching. And now the guarantor announces a survey of Crimeans, do they agree to be called residents of Banderstadt for the electric utility? In fact, Crimea was recaptured by our ancestors more than two hundred years ago and no one gave the right to control the fate and formulations to the guarantor and the whole people of the present Russian also have no right, but can only save and pass it on to the next generations. And we can only multiply and return the former territories of the Russian Empire on the conditions, of course, only provinces.

    The concept of "friendship" is from a very distant past, each country has its own interests, and success directly depends on how tough the leadership defends them from the encroachments of "friends" and "partners". It is no secret that Western civilization lives on more or less technological plunder - starting with the Crusaders - the capture of Byzantium, the plunder of colonies by the conquistadors gave an influx of gold and slaves, thanks to which Europe became what it is. Now - the "Indians" are over, - the Russian bear showed a grin of a "friendly smile" - it is important that the "smile" is supported by tough actions.

    Where are they friends? From this, a bold and straightforward conclusion is immediately drawn that the wrong, obsolete and aggressive imperial policy of Russia is to blame.
    The correct phrase about the outdated policy of Russia is about the Yeltsin era - we still disentangle his deeds !!!

    The concept of "friendship" is from a very distant past, each country has its own interests, and success directly depends on how tough the leadership defends them from the encroachments of "friends" and "partners". It is no secret that Western civilization lives on more or less technological plunder - starting with the Crusaders - the capture of Byzantium, the plunder of colonies by the conquistadors gave an influx of gold and slaves, thanks to which Europe became what it is. Now - the "Indians" are over, - the Russian bear showed a grin of a "friendly smile" - it is important that the "smile" is supported by tough actions. There is one way to make you respect your country - to become rich and independent from the West.
