Premonition of a civil war: from what the Crimea saved

148
The reunion of the Crimea and Russia was swift and stunning. Nobody expected this, and first of all the Crimeans themselves. Ukrainian “patriots” immediately shouted about “theft”, that they had “treacherously wrung out the Crimea”, as if forgetting that they had not been loved in the Crimea before, and had never considered themselves to be Ukraine. And when in May “flared up” in Odessa and the war in Donbass almost immediately began, Crimeans realized with horror what exactly was waiting for them if the peninsula had not “fled” on time.


Immediately after the first killed "separatists" appeared in Mariupol, and artillery volleys sounded in the Donbass, "carrying out" entire blocks of workers' settlements, a controversy broke out in social networks: what would happen to the Crimea if its residents did not hold a referendum after which the peninsula went from the "jumping" of Ukraine? Ukrainian “patriots” immediately declared that in this case there would be no war in the Donbas.

They really could not explain this wonderful logic of theirs, they only claimed that the war in Ukraine had broken out over the Crimea. There was a slight hint in this that the punitive operation in the Donbass was almost a revenge of the Kiev authorities for the lost territorial integrity, which, you see, is charmingly a little more than completely. To kill really one for the made-up sins of others is, perhaps, extremely clever.

But let us leave on the conscience of those who asserted this thesis, he clearly does not hold water, however, we note that the majority of Crimeans expectedly agreed that the war would be in the Crimea. Exactly the same as in the Donbass. However, this is not entirely true. Because the war would have been much bigger, and it would have been harder, if not to say, to avoid Russia’s participation in it.

Ultimately, as Karl Hampe, a professor at the University of Heidelberg, used to say: “Die Geschichte kennt kein Wenn,” that is, “History does not know the word "if." But we will break the scientist's testament and try to look at the problem in this way: what would have been “if”. But for this we need to start to answer the question: "Why?".

The purpose of the revolution of "pride"


The fact that the Crimea was the fundamental issue for which the “Maidan” was going to be, and the revolution of either “gidnosti”, or nastiness, was arranged, is not in doubt of any more or less sane person. This foolish youth from among the “office plankton”, drop-in students and professional Nazis could be turned into the tales of the European Union, a salary of one thousand euros and the fight against corruption and oligarchs.

The Maidan was completed soon as two years, but not one of the stated goals was not achieved, but absolutely no movements in this direction were made. And with individual sweet dreams and captivating dreams, the Ukrainians have already finally parted ways. So what was it all for? That's just for the sake of the Crimea.

The fact that dominance in the Black Sea-Azov region is a key issue in terms of influence in the Middle East, Central Asia and the South Caucasus, that is, in oil and gas areas, it is not necessary to explain even to those who are not interested in geopolitics at all. From this point of view, the United States and its allies preferably “squeeze out” Russia from the Black Sea basin, even if this leads to a complete imbalance of forces in the region and repeatedly strengthens Turkey and its allies. And Washington has exactly one way to do this: by all means remove the Russian Black Sea Fleet from the Crimea and get its own naval base in its place.

That's exactly what the coup in Kiev was for. From this point of view, the United States didn’t give a damn whether Ukraine will enter the EU or not, exactly what place the EU will have and what will happen to it, Ukraine, and more. What we are seeing today.

There is more than enough evidence that Washington has “aimed” at the Crimea. It’s not even a wagon, it’s a container ship. Another 5 of September, 2013, when the burned tires in Kiev still did not smell, an interesting tender was posted on the Federal Business Opportunity website of the US government: repair and re-equipment of school No. XXUMX of the city of Sevastopol. The customer is the US Navy Engineering and Construction Command.

Did the American military attend to education on, then, Ukraine? Hardly. However, if the Americans were going to build their bases in Sevastopol, then military engineers would be the first to arrive on the island.

And this case is not unique. For example, in Simferopol, the Americans were going to repair the Republican Children's Hospital. In a number of cities in the Crimea and in Odessa, buildings and infrastructure were being prepared to house the American contingent.

Obviously, according to the authors of the “Maidan”, Yanukovych would have been expelled from the country in any scenario. And now it is completely clear - it was inevitable, whatever compromise papers he tried to sign, whatever dances with songs and tambourines he tried to perform in front of the brutal crowd on the Kiev Maidan.

But the new provisional government would have to act tough. As it happened. In Odessa, Mariupol, Kharkov and Donetsk. But in fact, this recipe was intended for the Crimea. Recall: the very first incident against the South-East of Ukraine was the attack on the Crimean buses under Korsun in the Cherkassy region.

People were beaten, shot, tried to burn along with the buses, which is indicative and is the signature “Maidan” handwriting. All ended in human sacrifice. Purpose? To cause the response of people in the Crimea. Then activate the time bomb that various governments of Ukraine have been preparing for all these 20 years: the Crimean Tatars. And these "broad Ukrainians" are got from a half-turn. I personally saw it in the Crimea and more than once.

Every year on May 18, on the Memorial Day of the deportation of the Crimean Tatars, the Mejlis (the representative body of the Crimean Tatars) conducted a motor rally along the South Coast of the Crimea along the Yalta highway. In fact, this paralyzed the most important highway of the Crimea for the whole day and did not add mutual sympathy between the Tatars and the rest of the population of the peninsula. Relations have always been, to put it mildly, strained, and the authorities excitedly heated up this smoldering conflict.

At the same time, Kiev kept the Tatars themselves in a “pendulous” state, delaying the legal registration of land and not registering the Mejlis as an official organization. Kiev needed Tatars exactly in this capacity: as a semi-gangster organization, a kind of “Tatar sector”.

That's exactly what happened. After the incident with the attack on the buses, after the burned, beaten, tired of humiliation returning to Sevastopol, the Crimean "Berkutovtsy" had to throw the last match into the fire. And she was abandoned. It became clear that Crimeans were not going to agree with the coup d'état in Kiev, and the Tatars were brought to the streets of Simferopol, where they tried to block the state council of the peninsula. It was rumored that the radicals of the “Maidan” intend to come to the Crimea

Further would be expected. Somewhere the “house of the trade unions” would flare up, shooting would begin on the streets, and all this would take place in close proximity to the Russian military units, because of the fences of which the Russian soldiers would be forced to watch street riots and killings of people in impotent despair. .

Under these conditions, Turchinov, who had seized power in Kiev, would have terminated the lease agreement and would have delivered an ultimatum to Russia: to divert the fleet. Russia would have a choice: to intervene in a full-fledged armed conflict with Ukraine or to withdraw from the Crimea.

But “polite people” appeared and, under the pretext of saving the Crimean cats, changed the course of the situation. Something went wrong.

And what would happen if it went the way it should be Kiev and Washington?

What would be "if"

Premonition of a civil war: from what the Crimea saved


After the collapse of the Union, Ukraine received almost the largest grouping of troops. Still would! These were the western military districts, practically the first echelon of the defense of the territory of the USSR. At the same time, the Odessa Military District, in whose territory the Crimea and the Black Sea naval base were located, was perhaps the most combat-ready, and most importantly, active. After all, it was from here that the USSR operated on the Mediterranean direction.

In total, in 1990 in the Odessa district there were approximately 110 thousand military personnel, 600 tanks, 1 thousand armored personnel carriers and infantry fighting vehicles, 900 guns, mortars and MLRS, 150 combat and transport helicopters. This is not counting the forces of the Black Sea fleet. Almost all of this went to Ukraine.

The fleet was divided for a long time. "Already" until 1995. But the land garrison was divided quickly and automatically. And clearly in favor of Ukraine. According to the children's principle: “where it is worth it is called.” The only significant thing that managed to “conquer” Russia is two sea airfields aviation - in Kache and Guards, of course, with the material part; one air defense brigade, one of two coastal defense missile and artillery brigades, as well as half of the 810th Marine Corps, which was based in Sevastopol.

With the latter, by the way, one interesting story is connected. As a result, two twin brothers, Zaremba brothers, it seems, Alexey and Yury, commanded new units at the base of the brigade. After the final division of the Black Sea Fleet, when the joint command was liquidated, one of them began to serve in the Russian fleet, and the second in the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Such is the hint of time. So in the case of Ukraine, the phraseologism “war brother to brother” does not sound allegorical at all. However, in our case, the tragedy did not happen, and the brothers on the battlefield did not meet.

So, the strength of Ukraine was considerable, but to keep its money in the middle of the 90-s in the Ukrainian treasury simply was not. But there was no them, and Russia, and the garrison of the peninsula on both sides began to rapidly decline. The remnants of the 810 Brigade of the Marine Corps in Sevastopol quickly turned into a regiment and a separate battalion, which was withdrawn to the Azov coast, and the Ukrainian part of the brigade became even faster into the 1-th separate battalion of the Marine Corps in Feodosia.

But Ukraine got hardly the fattest part of the air defense of the Odessa region. It was in the Crimea that by the beginning of the 2000's it was still somehow a formidable fighting force: several brigades and regiments armed with C-200 complexes and C-300, the latest at that time. And also almost all combat-ready BUK-1M.

True, it is precisely the Crimean “soldiers” of the Armed Forces of Ukraine who became famous for being shot down by the Russian TU-154, which was traveling from Tel Aviv to Novosibirsk. But this only means that the calculations had a poor training. But the C-200, C-300 and BUK-1M complexes themselves were fully operational.

And this was confirmed in the eight-day war in South Ossetia. Then the experimental calculation of the Ukrainian BUK-1M, which consisted of repairmen-testers of the Balakleevsky Repair Plant, brought a lot of trouble to the Russian aviation industry. It cost the Russian army at least three downed aircraft and four dead pilots.

So, despite the fact that 90 is not happy for our states, the last 15 years Ukraine has concentrated everything she could in the Crimea. And obviously not just like that. Here, the most combat-ready Ukrainian units. Moreover, local servicemen tried to replace the soldiers and officers from other regions, mainly from Western Ukraine.

Already by 2007, the grouping of Ukrainian troops in the Crimea numbered more than 17 thousands of servicemen, and by 2013 almost 20 thousands. This is a third (!) Of all the armed forces of Ukraine at that time, and as for aviation and air defense, almost half of what could fly and shoot.

That is why, by the way, airplanes and helicopters in ATO so quickly ran out of the APU. Ukrainian aviation was not preparing for the Donbas and was not concentrating there.

Here is an incomplete list of what Kiev managed to gather in the Crimea by 2013 year.

Coast Guard Center:


36-I separate coast guard brigade (village Perevalnoe, Crimea).

Armament:

39 T-64B tanks,
178 armored vehicles (near 100 BMP-2,
about 50 BTR-80),
66 artillery installations (division (18 guns) 122 mm SAU "Gvozdika",
division (18 guns) 152 mm howitzers D-20,
division (18 guns) 122 mm howitzers D-30,
Division MLRS BM-21 "Grad" (18 installations) - anti-tank division (2 batteries MT-12 "Rapier", battery ATGM),
ZSU "Shilka"
LAW "Strela-10М3").
1-th separate battalion of marines, in the city of Feodosia.

Defense

174 anti-aircraft missile regiment (Headquarters - Dergachi district, near Sevastopol, 3 of C-300PS division)
50 anti-aircraft missile regiment (Theodosius, 2 of the C-300PT / PS battalion, 1 or 2 of the C-200М battalion)
55 anti-aircraft missile regiment (Evpatoria, 5 batteries "Buk-M1")

Plus, almost 60 combat aircraft and about 20 attack helicopters 204 Sevastopol tactical aviation brigade at a military airfield in Belbek.
Since there is no reason to speak about the “power” of the Ukrainian fleet - it was in fact a coastal defense fleet, it is worth saying that Kiev didn’t have anything to say to Russian warships. This is perhaps the most valuable acquisition of them in the division of the fleet in addition to air defense: the 25 coastal mobile missile division stationed at Cape Fiolent, near Sevastopol.

He was armed with two launchers of anti-ship cruise missiles "Rubezh" with P-15 "Termite" missiles. They are able to produce two four-missile volleys with a small interval for recharging, while maneuvering, changing position, by a distance of up to 100 km. Their half-ton warheads can drown a sentry / destroyer / frigate with one hit and even cause significant damage to such a ship as the flagship of the Russian Black Sea fleet, the Moskva missile cruiser. And it was a serious danger for the Black Sea Fleet.

But most importantly, all these parts were perfectly equipped and equipped with everything necessary. They would not need volunteers with their military-humanitarian aid using toy Chinese radios, hunting night scopes for hunting rabbits and children's quadcopters. They did not need those who couldn’t fight and the Pravoseki who were under their feet. They were sufficiently trained and coordinated.

Moreover, the deployment of units and formations was (this is visible on our map) nothing more than the blocking forces of the Russian land garrisons and the forces of the Black Sea fleet. At one point, one team of Ukrainian troops could build an effective line of defense with springboards for strikes. In this case, all communications and supply lines of the Russian army would be cut off and the garrisons would be cut off from each other.

And if everything went as it should, then the Russian military units would be surrounded by the prospect of engaging in combat at any moment. And it was a real prospect. Recall, when Kiev was surprised to find that the Ukrainian army was actually surrounded in parts in the Crimea, before it even left the barracks, Turchinov, in a frenzy, immediately ordered to open fire immediately to kill. The plan failed, but there was still hope of shedding blood.

Russia is ahead of Ukraine, perhaps in a matter of hours.

And only the low morale of the soldiers, who clearly did not want to sacrifice their lives for purposes they did not understand, and as Crimeans, participants of those events, admit, good relations, so to speak, “the army and the people”, who over the years managed to “take it easy and get to be friends” , did not allow Kiev to execute his plan in Washington and shed blood on the peninsula.

And if everything went according to plan, then later, when the Black Sea Fleet would be finished, the Crimea was drowned in blood and intimidated, on the warm shores of the southern coast of the Crimea American sailors, marines and pilots would comfortably settle down, the war would still come to Donbass . But it would be a completely different war. With far greater sacrifices and larger scale. Such is the bloody logic of the Maidan.

      I don’t agree about the shot down TU-154, he was shot down in the Crimea from the Opuk training ground, but at that time all-Ukrainian exercises were taking place and not only Crimeans were at the training ground, the plane was shot down by the Vasilkovskaya brigade arrived from near Kiev, which two years earlier had fallen into a five-story building in Browors.

        And the conclusion to all this is this:
        - Russian military bases in the near abroad are our security.
        - There would be no our military in Crimea, there would be no Crimea in Russia now.
        So there are more military bases in the near abroad and far.

        The Vasilkovsk brigade did not have a Tochka in service; she could not get into the house. And if there was a "Tochka", then it could not shoot down the plane with an S-200 missile, not the weapons. The brigade in Vasilkov was radio engineering.

        It is interesting that the West decided to restore this, if we give up the Crimea? Oil on 300 raccoons per barrel will do? Syria will give us forever and ever approve of its entry into the Russian Federation? Will Turkish builders send us to build communism in a particular country?

        There are no such heavy sanctions for the sake of which Crimea can be surrendered and there are no such tasty nishtyaks for whom the Crimea could be exchanged.

      But only at the dachas near Sevastopol, grateful townspeople settled about two hundred and fifty thousand "refugees" from Ukraine. In the "city of Russian sailors" itself, about six hundred thousand are being sewn.
      600 and 250 are quite comparable numbers.
      And how many refugees are there in the whole Crimea?
      There may be problems.

          .... Crimea was taken, but relics would not be enough for Novorossia. So she hung ...

          .... New Russia hung because they thought for a long time .... Everyone went to the demonstrations and rallies when it already started in Slavyansk .... Time passed, and then it was too late to apply the Crimean scenario .... Strelkov is not easy so I went there - it was thought that the people would rise en masse ....

    It takes a little to live in Crimea to understand the qualitative composition of the population. There are enough people serving even under the Union, of those who will be able to raise and organize in difficult times. Therefore, in any negative scenario of the Armed Forces of Ukraine without the support of the population, one would have to deal not only with the KChF units, but also with resistance units. And in Crimea it’s quite convenient to carry out partisan actions and cut off supplies to the invaders. It would hardly have been possible to quickly crank up anything here in such a situation.

    Kiev needed the Tatars in this capacity: as a semi-gangster organization, a kind of "Tatar sector"

    If we recall that the Crimean Tatars in the Second World War were basically traitors, and about their kinship with the Turks, then Kiev had reasons to rely on them.
    The reunion of Crimea and Russia was swift and stunning. Nobody expected this, and first of all, Crimeans themselves.

    But this is really a brilliant victory that no one could have foreseen.
    Russia is ahead of Ukraine, perhaps in a matter of hours.

    I'm losing options if everything went wrong. Nothing good for us. It is for us. The Black Sea would be lost. And the war would go on in Crimea (it would be more difficult for us to help the inhabitants of Crimea). And they could just give back to Donbass for joy. For states, this is not critical.

    Plus, almost 60 combat aircraft and about 20 attack helicopters 204 Sevastopol tactical aviation brigade at a military airfield in Belbek.

    In fact, the brigade was a storage base for aircraft:
    The 204th brigade was nominally armed with 46 MiG-29 and MiG-29UB fighters and four modernized L-39M1 trainer aircraft. The brigade's combat readiness was extremely low, and by the beginning of 2014, only three MiG-29s, one MiG-29UB and one L-39M1 were in flight condition from its fleet. During the Crimean events on February 28, 2014, the Belbek airfield was taken under the control of "polite people" who blocked the personnel of the 204th brigade from access to the aircraft parking and disabled all four remaining serviceable fighters.

    But the political officer of the brigade, walking under the red banner, shouted loudly: "America is with us." laughing

    But “polite people” appeared and, under the pretext of saving the Crimean cats, turned the tide.

    The decisive role in the return of Crimea to Russia was played by the determination and activity of the people of Crimea themselves, who throughout their stay in Ukraine felt like second-class citizens, as well as the skillful leadership of the emerging reunification movement by its leaders, who were able to organize extremely quickly (maidanuts in Kiev did not have time to wake up) holding a referendum! "Polite lyudi" only PROVIDED the calm conduct of this referendum, preventing the maydanuts from using their armed forces, which were in Crimea, to put pressure on the people and obstruct the referendum!

    The Ukrainians had already thought to expel our fleet from the Crimea, and, in the hard for us "dashing 90s", there was an interesting article on this issue on VO - then they wanted to take by storm the General Staff of the Navy, this is such a "brotherly people", but then what it did not grow together. And numerous attacks on the objects of the Black Sea Fleet, young people penetrated with flags, then they were expelled from there. I think that Putin had information about the intentions of the staff members to "squeeze" Crimea for their bases, otherwise they would not have planned what they did later. I think many were surprised and amused by the work of our media, which reported from release to release about "unknown armed men", "self-defense units" on vehicles without numbers and signs. Yanukovych, for some reason, wavered, could not give the order to complete this hellish sabbath, although if he dispersed and imprisoned, then the most that the Westerners did to him, introduced sanctions, but alas!

      94th year. VCh a-1594 from Ochakov. The article where it is described - "Opposition" by S. Kozlov in "Soldier of Fortune". True, then the brigade commander Karpenko said that this was all nonsense ... Not nonsense.

    I think the West and Europe of the frenzy for the most part, not only our Crimea but also how it became ours. And this shows a lot of the work of special services and of course our valiant army. About the willpower of Crimeans, I generally keep quiet. Donbass is our pain.

    the Americans, when planning this operation, did not take into account the most important thing - the mentality of the local residents. In 2010. my wife and I spent my honeymoon in Sevastopol. I’ll make a reservation right away - we were in the Ukraine for the first time. We took pictures in the private sector from some acquaintances who knew them from work (not the point). The owners (a young couple of about 40 years old, well-to-do husband in a good SUV) told me so much about the Ukrainians that my ears curled up into a tube !!!! When I asked why they did not like their fellow citizens and the country so much, they told me that only Russians live here, and they do not consider themselves Ukrainians !! It was just a shock for me. The next shock I had was when I did not see the names of streets, outdoor advertisements on the mov (they were very proud of this, by the way) - I thought that I had come to a foreign country !. I heard Mova the only time when a crowd of 10-15 people drove out (!) A Ukrainian couple from the beach. they were drunk, they spoke MOV and made fun of the Russians, and they drove them out with the words "piz ... those to their Ukraine." Note - it was 2010.
    P.S. The customs officers robbed us of the train twice at the entrance and exit for 40 bucks.

    In Crimea, there would be no war, but a massacre. The unarmed Crimeans would have been opposed by armed right-wingers who plundered weapons depots and Tatar radicals in western Ukraine. Putin saved our lives. Thanks to the GDP, thanks to the Polite people, thanks to the Russians for accepting.

    Crimea. It was so swift and unexpected, already breathtaking. After Belovezhskaya Pushcha, they gritted their teeth at the mention of the Crimea, when they saw it on TV, in films in the news, etc., hoping in their hearts that something would happen and he would still be with us. And here is such a quick transformation. Putin for this monument and the edifying inscription to the descendants on it, so that they would not be scattered in the commotion. (a hint of Yeltsin and Khrushchev).

    Yes, if everything went wrong and our people were kicked out of Crimea in the Donbass, war would have started, here I would like to add that the Khokhlov for surrendering the Crimea to Amers would have been hurt by an adult, not by dragging so much - but at what cost, that’s the question.
    In general, the winner is the one who is trickier, smarter and calculated everything in advance. Our just done, too long from hohlou.rodov suffered humiliation!

    Unique, unseen in world history, "annexation"- without a single person killed or wounded (or was there one?). laughing

    Whether Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria - none "annexation"; only millions of lost and tens of millions of refugees. Such is tolerant morality. laughing

    The history of Crimea includes a criminal betrayal of 92 years. What Khrushchev did there - in a single country - nobody really cares (unless from a formal legal point of view); Russians, as they were Russians, remained so after 54 years; no one sent them friendship trains with banderlogs and did not scare Amer values.
    But then in the year 92 - then it was noticeable; because the real section was; it was really different, the state was already initially turned in the wrong direction. What the creators of this action thought is incomprehensible.

    Incidentally, according to the mythology of ukrov, since LDNR are separatists, then all of Ukraine is a separatist region, starting in '92.

    The article is somewhat controversial. Yes, Crimea has a very, very big strategist. value, but the Americans can both in Romania and Bulgaria and in Turkey (where there were already rockets with nuclear stuffing) place whatever they want. Maidown was planned to seize power at all costs, and there already for the Americans walk-field. The author saw state purchases from the United States, but the director of the CIA secretly flew to Kuev immediately after Yanyka’s flight, but the author didn’t notice, and this is perhaps the most important thing. But if you go on the topic, if, then for fun, gather a crowd with weapons and dill flags and call yourself an activist and a member of the anti-terrorist operation or a cyborg, you can safely capture any ODA.

    Premonition of a civil war: from what the Crimea saved

    For some reason, the title of the article immediately strained: are there really any difficulties in Crimea again? But after reading, I realized that we are talking about 2014. The article was accepted with a "+" sign. And the title of the article would have ended "... from what Crimea was saved in 2014".

    Recently watched videos on polite people on YouTube. Immediately after the return of Crimea, there was an idea that everything went by itself. Now it’s clearly visible and understandable, our actions were planned, honed, maybe there were even training at the training grounds. To carry out such an operation, military, special, without casualties, with such troops on the adjacent side, in such a territory, the General Staff, intelligence low bow, there are OFFICERS- pros in their field! Even with the full assistance of the local population and Turchinov’s dibilism. Once planned, then all this was read at least half a year or a year, for this bow to strategic analysts. Someone may say that everything was impromptu, but then the level of preparedness and readiness of our Army does not fit into my head. I think all the same, we saw and prepared strategically. But since there are military strategists, why aren’t there in the economy ???? Or is there? So in economics, it’s all about sabotage artists? Who are they? Or is there no scale? Some kind of bifurcation, in one brilliant, in another brilliant. It’s strange.

    Ukraine has concentrated all that is possible from its APU in the Crimea.

    Already by 2007, the grouping of Ukrainian troops in the Crimea numbered more than 17 thousands of servicemen, and by 2013 almost 20 thousands. This is a third (!) Of all the armed forces of Ukraine at that time, and as for aviation and air defense, almost half of what could fly and shoot.

They always told me (that this lover of corn would turn over in a tomb) - we are RUSSIAN. (I am a Muslim from Ufa). So, to hell with them, and not OUR pride-SEVASTOPOL with Crimea.

    Ukrainians are offended that Russia "squeezed" Crimea and Sevastopol, but they completely forget about how they themselves squeezed out in the 90s. Sevastopol, which was never administratively part of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, which means it was in no way Ukrainian. And the fact that EBN got drunk "did not notice" the loss is somehow hushed up.

    The only bad thing - before the Crimea everyone thought that our army was a bunch of chukhans, in torn clothes, Kalash from the 80s, rotten equipment, etc.

    And now the cards are open - they realized that they had miscalculated very much in the assessment of our forces, and they really became scared. Would we live in Europe or the USA - we would be scared tooif Russia, without murders and especially resistance, took control of a territory the size of some European countries. That's why they scream in Estonia, Lithuania, etc. - when such a "tub of water" is poured out, you immediately understand that NATO simply won't have time to help you if they seriously offend us. And most importantly, the PEOPLE in Europe began to understand this.

    So they have to tighten the screws to us, showing us that we are stronger than Russia, etc. I suspect my grandchildren will find these sanctions, no one will take them off especially. They will try to strangle us at any cost, even if for this they need to lose a couple of "like their own" from the category of Turkey, there will be constant setups and provocations.

    And now there’s also an operation in Syria, it turns out we still have planes, and they are flying. Then there are boats with cruise missiles. Then the submarines. If they show a spaceship, then in general they will clog in their holes from fright.

    They will not fight with us openly, because a war with the use of nuclear weapons will do irreparable damage to them, but for us it will be much simpler, the country is huge, we have places to live, and what to eat, in the last resort we’ll go and give the stars a who will have uninfected territory.

    As for the operation in Crimea, I think we will never know how it really was, because we know the current visible part - information, military. But I am tormented by suspicions that some "actions during that period of the patriots of Ukraine" were somehow very beneficial to us, as if someone very competently, but secretly manipulated them, and from time to time continues to do this in our interests. I hope that this is indeed the case, which means that intelligence has finally reached the same level that it was under the USSR.

    Because the economy is much more complicated. It is very seriously tied up on a global scale, a lot of exchanges, each country with its own quirks, printing presses, technologies, etc.

    We have always had an excellent military school, but an economic one, especially at an international level - where can we get it from if we started more than 20 years ago (and are still starting to) integrate into the world economy. Moreover, we study at their "school", for there is no one of our own, and "their school" does not always suit our economy.

    We have no concept "honor"in business - for example, by the nature of my activity, I have communicated in a year and a half with almost a hundred entrepreneurs who own both small and large businesses (canneries, car dealership networks, etc.) - 90 percent of these people will happily do more than arrived at the population, not caring that they are essentially robbing it. They are accustomed to excess profits, tax evasion, gray wages. Do you know the other 10 percent, mostly who? It is young people who are 23-32 years old. they want to do a normal business without robbing their own population - there is not much for them - we cost them to raise their business to a serious level, and officials, their "more insolent" competitors, the prosecutor's office, even firefighters immediately begin to nightmare them (so, that the tax authorities and others are quietly standing on the sidelines and teasing with their feet) they begin to milk them in such a way that what the hell are you going to develop. proposition gom, then the investigator will say - if you want to live, rewrite the business, or you zagremsya in a press hut, and you will come out of there disabled with a torn ass.

    What about investors? Bandit on a bandit, current legalized after 90s. Should they understand that your project is interesting, then they will take it from you without any problems. Going to the bank for investment? The same bandits, current in more expensive suits, moreover, under the roof of a huge bureaucratic apparatus. And what is there to hide - all normal loans, they go their own, and the crumbs for show are to the rest of the mortals.

    Until young people grow up and most of the snickering entrepreneurs from the 90s die, the economy will not rise. The main thing is that young people are not ruined :(

    Here is an argument into an argument that I myself am talking to doubting or not fully understanding people. Although, believe me, in Estonia, among Russian speakers, there are practically none (and these are Russians, Ukrainians, Belarusians, and Tatars ... Yes, anyone). Everyone understands everything perfectly. No propaganda by the pro-NATO Estonian authorities is in effect. The reaction is exactly the opposite (here, by the way, an interesting phenomenon).

    They really could not explain this wonderful logic of theirs, they only claimed that the war in Ukraine had broken out over the Crimea. There was a slight hint in this that the punitive operation in the Donbass was almost a revenge of the Kiev authorities for the lost territorial integrity, which, you see, is charmingly a little more than completely. To kill really one for the made-up sins of others is, perhaps, extremely clever.

    The tram left, what to talk about now. I have only a question on the quote, but in my opinion these dels .. will not answer. And why they began to peck the Donbass, why not Lviv, not Poltava, not Nikolaev, not Dnepropetrovsk.

They chose a secondary school No. 5, which, in addition to a large educational building and a large territory, dominated in height of the terrain practically throughout the center of the city of Sevastopol. But such a bummer! Thanks to the author for a sound analysis of possible events in the Crimea.
