President of Estonia: the country will not be able alone to become prosperous, and even "next to Russia"

81
Estonia, being next door to Russia, cannot flourish without the support of the European Union, reports Lenta.ru report statement of the country's leader Toomas Ilves.




“Understanding that Estonia could be alone in a mini-Switzerland near Russia, is suitable under the rubric of the absurd. How can you even reach such self-deception, ”Ilves said at an event dedicated to the 98 anniversary of Estonia’s independence.

“Estonia will not be able to improve the standard of living without the help of the European Union,” he said.

At the same time, the president noted that the European Union has a difficult time now - it was gripped by a migration crisis, which could even lead to the disintegration of the community.

Ilves also expressed concern that Eastern European countries may lose their financial support due to their unwillingness to accept refugees. With such an initiative recently made the Italian Prime Minister Renzi.

“This is not an empty threat, since on the sidelines other states speak in the same vein. Those states whose contributions consist of structural funds, ”said the president.

According to him, Estonia will “accept only those migrants who fled from the war and do not pose a threat to its security.”

"The rest, that is, economic migrants and luck catchers, should be sent back, as Finland has already become the most exemplary way to do," he added.

The publication reminds that in January, Estonia declared the impossibility of “integrating 550 refugees into its society”, which should arrive in the country according to the “distribution list” of Brussels.

        Not certainly in that way. From the budget of the USSR money fell unmeasured. And the EU knows how to count money, and if it gives it, then only on credit. Under a good percentage. Actually, all republics lived like that. In addition to the RSFSR, which lived on a residual basis. Like in a family: all the best for children. And as in a family - if the child is pampered excessively, then an egoist grows up who does not give a damn about his parents.

          Here is one feature:
          Today, the Baltic countries have traditionally become the most motorized of the republics of the former USSR. Lithuania is in 13th place (638 cars), Estonia is in 31st place (524 cars), Latvia is in 47th place (344 cars). Data are calculated per 1000 inhabitants.

          By the way, it happened historically. Back in 1990, the number of cars in the Baltic states was 100 per thousand population, while in Russia there were 50 cars.

          You just need to compare historical facts:
          1. The development of Estonia 1918-1939.
          “With the formation of the bourgeois republics in the Baltic in 1918, economic ties between Estonia and Soviet Russia were almost completely interrupted. This was a heavy blow to the Baltic states. Their economic development increasingly fell into dependence on English, German, Dutch and Swedish capital. In Estonia, with the exception of oil shale mining, the number of workers has noticeably decreased, working conditions have worsened, wages have fallen, unemployment has increased.Agriculture specialized mainly in the export of livestock products - butter and bacon. achieved before the First World War, the situation of agricultural workers worsened, the indebtedness of the farms increased, social contradictions intensified, many people emigrated. "

          2. The development of Estonia 1945-1985
          "In 1946-1985, the machine-building and metal-working industry developed especially (growth in production by 268 times), electricity production (by 214 times), the chemical industry (by 120 times), and the oil shale chemical industry of building materials (by 141 times). Gross industrial output over these years it has increased by about 76 times.If during the period from 1971 to 1985 the gross industrial output of the Estonian SSR increased 2 times, then the products of the machine-building and metalworking industries - 3 times, the chemical industry - 2,2 times, the oil shale chemical industry - 2,8 times , 2,5 times. The woodworking industry developed noticeably faster than the average (production growth by XNUMX times), primarily as a result of the rapid growth in the production of furniture, as well as chipboard and fiberboard. "

          PS By the way, the description of the situation in paragraph 1. doesn’t resemble anything?

    Understanding that Estonia alone could become a mini-Switzerland near Russia’s side fits the heading of the absurd.
    There is a good old Russian proverb - "An affectionate calf sucks two queens" ... If they had taken this into service, there would have been no absurdity - Switzerland would have rest. But no! Common sense and good-neighborliness, in these formerly prosperous republics of the USSR, have long been replaced by paranoid hatred. Not even so, not replaced, but planted in their brain by overseas partners! Sad, very sad ...

    Estonia, like all other balts + Ukraine + anyone, should understand that one cannot flourish only from hatred of Russia. To prosper, you need to work, CREATE. They only destroy. And they live in the hope that Russia will collapse someday. Let not at their feet, but - collapse! Here they will be glad! They would at least think for a second: what would they benefit from?
    And with this attitude towards us, let them not expect good things for themselves. Not enemies yet. But they are no longer friends or even partners.

    Everything is like in a joke about a bad neighbor.
    Neighbor, and neighbor, let me eat, otherwise you have nothing to "impose" under the door.

    Another example of how moral decay is combined with mental inferiority.
    1) If Estonia had not been at hand with Russia, then no one would have remembered its existence.
    2) Not for that the EU drags the former countries of the socialist camp to itself to make them prosperous.
    3) The US and the EU have a completely different goal-to use these countries to weaken Russia.
    4) For a country to become prosperous, it is necessary that its economy develops.
    5) Understand, Mr. President of Estonia, that not a single owner is interested in his laborers being rich and independent, and Estonia, following the instructions of the EU and the USA, the country remains a servant that the owner uses for his own purposes.

    Estonia with the EEC will not prosper and decay because it does not meet European standards and not when it does not meet the requirements.

    And what happened, you were so eager in the 90s from the Soviet Union, you wanted independence and such a bummer. And what Russia didn’t please you, near and near, the Finns live next to us, they fish, they make paper, they somehow manage, and the Belarusians somehow don’t complain.
    But you just have to have brains and be able to use them, and not to build offended oneself. It’s in the Union that you lived like Christ’s bosom, and in Europe, nobody will feed you, nobody needs you to hell.

    And Estonia will never again become prosperous, from the word at all. The outback of Europe which is needed only for yapping at Russia.

    Go to your sprats in the sea Estonians and you will be happy. The thing is that such a non-extraneous state is not interesting to anyone - there is nothing there to surprise

    Under the pretext of proximity to Russia, they are asking for money for the prosperity of the people in order to divide between members of the government.
