Russia needs a mission, not a mystic


The approach to geopolitics from an irrational point of view, from an apocalyptic standpoint, seems comparable to the situation in Russia at the beginning of the 20th century, when the highest part of the elite was captured by mystical ideas, made belated, illogical decisions, completely divorced from reality. For which she paid: with the country and with her own lives.

The fate of Turkey is “predetermined” by numerous guardians of irrationalistic and religious-mystical approaches to geopolitics. If we summarize all the attitudes and ideas, then the future of this country is deplorable. It will be drawn into a chain of regional conflicts, a civil war will break out, foreign intervention will occur, up to a third of the residents will become refugees, a significant part will perish. The country will be divided, and Constantinople will depart the “right” people.

Dangerous tribute


Of course, there are objective and subjective prerequisites for the crisis and decline of our southern Black Sea neighbor. Firstly, these are refugees, for whose maintenance Turkey receives a kind of tribute from Europe. A critical increase in their numbers will create enormous pressures on infrastructure and budget, even if we do not take into account the facts when radical extremists penetrate the country in the guise of refugees. In addition, this tribute is a kind of narcotic, a sharp cessation of supplying them with them will significantly aggravate the situation.

“Erdogan the loser is a good target for prosecution. And here Europe will remember him ties with Islamists ”
Secondly, it is the rupture of economic ties, the reduction of the tourism and manufacturing industries. And not only because of the Russian sanctions. They do not play the first role, but can be the last straw that broke the camel’s back.

Third, rising unemployment, declining investment attractiveness amid the economic downturn and political instability. The internal problems of the country, starting with the notorious “middle income trap”, began to escalate long before the conflict with Russia. The confidence of foreign investors undermines the interest rate policy of the Turkish Central Bank, as well as the transition to a presidential form of government.

Fourth, the national and first of all the Kurdish factor. This ethnos is at the stage of statehood formation, it claims to a significant part of the Turkish lands. An economic crisis or geopolitical defeat could push the country to collapse.

Among the subjective reasons, we must attribute the voluntarist, revenge-seeming policy of the government and Erdogan with signs of nationalism. The latter is increasingly giving the impression of a “hot guy,” ready to aggravate the conflict for fear of losing face. Erdogan's logic reminds of the street Gopnik of the 90-x sample. First, the smallest and thinnest member of the gang is sent to the victim, whose task is to provoke a response. And then the whole gop company "brings justice", knocking out valuable things, money, and even life from a person.

Ticket to Tsargrad


As long as the Turkish leader feels for himself the support of Europe, overturned by tribute and abiding from refugees and terrorist acts, while his generals quietly enter NATO offices, he considers himself safe protected. So, they are ready not only to dictate their will, arrange minor provocations and stir up hysteria, but also decide to invade Syria under the pretext of creating a “security zone”, blocking the straits and strikes against the Russian contingent.

The subjective factor, growing appetites, the inability to stop or admit that they were wrong will push Erdogan to complicate the situation, to involve new forces in the confrontation. He is largely a hostage of the initial position, which he cannot retreat from, since this is the end of his political career and the charge of collaboration with the IS prohibited in Russia. While they can not be the basis of pressure on Turkey. But Erdogan the loser is a good target for prosecution. And here Europe will remember his connection with the Islamists.

Russia has no right to be like its Black Sea neighbor in its irrational and irresponsible policy, built on an ideology turned to the past. The Turkish propaganda machine is just waiting to mobilize the population in support of the military-political regime of Erdogan, finally suppress freedom of journalism, destroy any sane opposition, get the desired image of the pan-Slavist aggressor, as we are already defined, for example, in the Turkish Yenicag (Agay Ogtai Guner - “Where is Russia going?”).

Our country must remain a friend to the peoples of Turkey. Regardless of the local regime. This is the only constructive position.

Prophets and Suitcases


The presence of an ideology, a mission, an idea that is presented to the rest of the world as a justification of the right to power is a vital necessity for the state.

It is only recently that the Russian political community, which had been in the captivity of applied manipulative technologies for many years, began to realize that the "illusory reality" is able to work only for a limited time. Even the best public opinion management practices fail when addressing large-scale historical calls. Ideology turns out to be necessary.

But instead of developing in this direction, we get ideas of sample XVII, at best, of the end of the XIX century from napkins chests. Take the same Tsargrad, which should belong to "who knows", than the soldiers in the 1914 – 1915 have already tried to make the masses.

Such a "mystical" approach is a potential basis for a global conflict and internal civil war already in Russia, and without thinking about the capture of Constantinople and the straits. Today there are enough authors calling for such a man-made apocalypse. “In ancient times, no self-respecting commander dared to take a step before the soothsayers, fortune-tellers or magicians around him promised the favor of heaven,” Roman Ilyushchenko preaches (“Erdogan is not Tamerlane. The Elders predicted the disintegration of Turkey”). But this does not mean that in our time, when formulating geopolitical strategies, we must be guided by astrological forecasts.

Surely Tamerlane was led not only by dreams. There is quite a historical version that it was precisely during the stay at Yelets that he consciously made the decision not to go to war with Russia with its population ravaged by previous Horde raids, and peaceful relations with the potential opponents of the Horde were more in line with its strategic goal. The enemy of your enemy can become a friend. In turn, in the fall of 1395, Moscow troops seized many cities of the Volga region, taking advantage of the defeat of the Horde from Tamerlane.

No less dangerous is the expectation of the “end of time”, Armageddon. It is obvious that almost all modern eschatological and having an irrational-metaphysical basis of ideas echo the provisions and attitudes of the IG prohibited in Russia, and this is a “justice deficit” and the expectation of the Doomsday.

There is no difference, whose authority covers the suffering cohort of the apocalypse of the cohort of authors - Cosmas Aetoli, Paisius Svyatogorts, Arseny Kappadokii, or the Vanga Orthodox Church that is not recognized. It is possible to answer only with the phrase: “No one knows about the day or hour, neither the Angels of heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father” (“Mark's Gospel” .13: 32).

As for Constantinople, it is necessary to “reduce the importance” of the problem, and then the desired will be achieved not at such a heavy and bloody price. Recall that the slogans in relation to Constantinople and the straits served as one of the moral rationales for Russia's participation in the First World War, into which it entered unprepared. Results we remember.

Our political system is currently facing a stadial challenge that determines not only the directions and guidelines for development, but also the very fact of its existence.

On the one hand, there are objective socio-economic difficulties caused by internal causes and ineffective management, flawed and failed decisions. On the other hand, frank and overt external pressure, sanctions, intensification of geopolitical competition. But this is not a reason to pack your bags, dig bunkers, buy canned meat boxes. Or with a hot head rush into the pool of eschatological, revolutionary passions.

There will be no apocalypse, doomsday or “the end of time”, as has not happened in previous epochs. The chain of cataclysms, social and military-political conflicts will lead to the transformation of the way of life of most states, to the violent, unfortunately, resolution of contradictions with the subsequent awareness of the need to negotiate and formulate the rules of coexistence on planet Earth.

Attempts to primitivize international relations, reducing them to conspiracy theories, dividing the parties into blacks and whites, labeling and religious and mystical substantiation of Russia's position are a “tunnel” vision of problems, a loss of initiative. And as a result of the inevitable defeat of such an attitude towards geopolitics, we will receive a cohort of ashes of “prophets” sprinkling over our heads, admonishing us that the Lord punished us for our sins.

It is better to follow the well-known commandment: “He said to them: it is not your business to know the times or dates that the Father put in His power” (“Acts of the Apostles”, 1: 7). And to give the clergy to save souls, historians delve into the past, and politicians and the military to defend their interests from Caesar.

        Gromyko A.A. (USSR Foreign Minister) at one time well besieged the Turks ... (in short, for coffee in Turkish ..)
        "If Turkey closes the Bosphorus Strait for our ships, then one salvo of missiles will be enough to form a new one, but there will be no Istanbul ..." He clearly hinted (and at that time such an opportunity was real!) for the time being ... Russia is concentrating, again!

            These are trifles after all ... Let's say Lavrov, as Gromyko will say .. "If Turkey does not stop bombing Kurdish militias on the border of Syria, etc. ... Then we will rename Turkey part of Kurdistan, and the rest to Byzantium! The Caspian will support ..)))

      Thank you, Anton, for the "truth-womb", but suddenly the elders-prophets will be right: Turkey will fall apart not in the fourth, but in the fifth - God wants it, and Istanbul will really become Greek (although I personally wanted it to be Russian) Constantinople ? What then? There are enough examples in history! (about Tamerlane near Yelets it is still lulling that his beloved wife (option - the horse fell) died, so he went to the funeral. Have you not heard such a version?) In general, it would be right to educate our Army on the basic ideas of Orthodoxy and the Third Rome, then the introduction of troops into Syria is quite justified - Russia is fulfilling its God-given mission. Unfortunately, only the "religious mystics" and "spiritual irrationalists" who are ridiculed by you speak and write about this. As if it was possible to rationally foresee the Soviet victory in 1941! Stalin then panicked, and for example, Elder Seraphim Vyritsky and Matrona of Moscow predicted victory. Let's see which of us is right in the case of Turkey! And yet - you feel your weak, atheistic preparation from the tugged gospel quotes. Why are they, if, according to your "Apocalypse, the Day of Judgment or" the end of times "will not be, as did not happen in previous eras". Whether oh! Do not take too much on yourself, denying the Gospel quoted by you and specifically the book "Revelation" of John the Theologian (Apocalypse)!

        As if one could rationally foresee the USSR Victory in 1941!

        Rationally, Victory could have been foreseen after the Wehrmacht had lost momentum in August-September 1941, having transferred large forces from the central direction to the capture of Kiev. After that, "Blitzkrieg" died along with "Barbarossa".
        Quote: Denis Obukhov
        Stalin then panicked, for example, Elder Seraphim Vyritsky and Matrona of Moscow predicted victory.

        Stalin panicked? Well, yes, he led the war around the globe - they still know about it! It is only thought that if the ITT had panicked, it would have faded to Kuybyshev, and didn’t accept the parade on November 7th on Red Square.
        But, in your opinion, the only ones who maintained their composure at that difficult time were Elder Serafim Vyritsky and Matrona of Moscow.
        There is much more that I want to say, but I see no point in continuing the discussion. In addition, my opinion does not seem to find understanding.

        And in 1945, from the territory of Armenia occupied by Turkey, where Kurds were forcibly resettled and the willing Turks settled voluntarily, the Turks fled in droves, to a lesser extent the Kurds. Turkish troops were withdrawn deep into the country: the Turks were sure that the USSR would occupy these territories without forgiving Turkey the pro-German policy of its then leader Inenu. And no one would have made a sound at that time! Moreover, even if our troops occupied the straits and the Black Sea coast to Trebizond, and not just Armenia ...

      Have you just found out about it? There are many such (restructures) in Turkey. At one time, Hagia Sophia also served as a mosque. And since 1935 it has been a museum. And most importantly, they do not return the Orthodox flock. This is an insult to the feelings of Christians, as they like to say this to others when it concerns them.

    The author, as it were, is not very aware that "to fight or not to fight" depends little on the desire of the political leadership of Russia. The initiative in the issue of war is undoubtedly with those forces who carried out this endless mess in Syria, Turkey, first of all.
    And about the author’s numerous religious retreats, it can be said that the World is governed by the Word of God and Russia in this World has its own role, whether the author likes it or not.

    most of all I didn’t like the photo, there should be a cross over Hagia Sophia, not banners

    And for me it’s like the Kadyrov’s mosque and Russia’s straits, east to the Kurds, Armenians Ararat, well, a little west to the Greeks (as compensation).

    Our country must remain a friend to the peoples of Turkey. Regardless of the local regime. This is the only constructive position.

    The author urges us to follow the canons of the Bible, hit your face on the right side, substitute the left side faster, otherwise the Turkish people will be offended. Maybe the respected author will answer the question why Russia should always be different for all nations, even when they shower us mud, tons of lies and fabrications, when other nations will treat us like friends. Mr. author, will you scream at the top of our mouths, we are friends when the representatives of this friendly people cut your throat.

    It’s not difficult to understand Turkish politics, the first is a diversionary maneuver for the whole world to please the United States and K, the second is domestic, to retain the power of the army and bankers in Turkey, whose representative is Erdogan.

    About the commandments ... I’d better tell a joke (a little scared): Gopnik hit the priest on his left cheek and waits for him to substitute the right one. And the priest took out a gun and shot the gopinik in the leg. Gopnik: - but what about the scripture? Priest: - nothing is written in the scripture about the gun.

    Auto RU. Everything in your article is correct and you could agree with your every word. if not for one moment capable of overturning any logical constructions - why do you consider a person to be a creature acting on the basis of logic? Aristotle's logic has power only over consciousness, the subconscious lives by its own laws, and it is the subconscious that controls the human psyche. Moreover, the "collective subconscious" (according to Jung) is still less accessible to logic, be it the psychology of a random crowd or a people. Russian Constantinople is one of the archetypes of the Russian national character, and there is nothing you can do about it, so you shouldn't even regret it. Hence all these, God forgive me, "predictions". which, most likely, did not exist.

    I apologize for the fact that the article was a minus, starting to read from the second part, I thought that the author went off the roof, but then I read the introductory note and generally agreed. If at first there were quite logical condemnations, now it has already started to blow with stimulating incitement. I will not generalize, but it’s scary to turn on the box already.

    For some reason, it seems that the threat to peace is just the Russian Federation under the control of the oligarchy. And Russian-the Russian Federation is a greater enemy than Turkey or NATO.

    In vain they put so many minuses. The author agrees with all the prophets listed. But he would like to convey the idea: "do not willingly." That is, he claims that Constantinople will be conquered by the Russians, but in due time, by God's permission. When the bowl of evil filled with the Ottomans overflows. Russia, on the other hand, must wait for the right time and embody God's Will, and not indulge its desires and imperial ambitions turned into the past.
    For desires are passions from the evil one. Heated by passions is sinful. Spots appear on white robes. You will not receive help from God.
    But this is not just about the destruction of the country, but a whole civilization - the Turkic world. Which, like the Russian world, has many supporters: these are the Kazakhs, the Kyrgyz, the Bashkirs, the Tatars, and the peoples of the Caucasus. In addition, the destruction of Turkey will lead to massacre and suffering of millions. How can this be desired. Now, if there is no other way out, then another thing.
    And do not forget. Erdogan, overwhelmed by passions and past imperial ambitions, wants the destruction of Syria and the restoration of the Ottoman Empire. And ... gets a civil war with the Kurds, and then with the Armenians, Greeks, and possibly with Russia, and the destruction of the country, and then the payment of endless historical bills.
    If Russia behaves like Turkey with Syria, it will get the same thing - ethnic conflicts, civil war, collapse.
    In short, like Castaneda’s - the warrior’s mood: intention, lack of desire, internal dialogue, willingness to die at any moment, and ... do what you must.
    Putin is a real MASTER. He will succeed. God willing.

    An article by a "real pacifist." Don't take a gun, put your face on ... How tired these infantile half-males, half-maidens. With such guys, the country will give its last pants. God is becoming less and less like that.

    The article is clever, you shouldn't "minus" ... Erdogan is a problem, maybe a war ... But anti-Turkish hysteria in "talk shows", journalism is now kind of paranoid. The spirit of Milyukov-Dardanelles settled on all channels ...
    And to Peshkov and Pazynich - eternal memory. I told children about these real warriors today ...

      Thousands of people: peaceful workers, seekers of the "Russian sun", just desperate guys who speak Russian were brutally and cynically killed by the state of Ukraine during the "ATO" ...
      Thousands of officials of the state of Ukraine gave criminal orders in the spirit of the Reich to shoot the cities of Donbass .... Nobody canceled the blockade of Crimea ...
      This is quite a reason for any self-respecting state to refuse direct diplomatic and economic contacts with Kiev officials and the state as a whole.
      Kiev officials are criminals.

    There will be no apocalypse, Doomsday, or “end of time,” as was not the case in previous eras.

    Well, 2 years is a small historical period in the biography of the Earth, but even on this short period, humanity has a memory of the Flood and this fact is not disputed by scientists.

    Why are there so many cons to the article? It is an adequate article in my opinion. I agree with the author that one cannot be guided by mysticism in politics.
