Oscar Kreici: “Russia can rise from the ashes” (Prvnizpravy.cz, Czech Republic)



“To say that a war cannot start on the basis of rational calculations means to incline to the fact that it can flare up due to lack of reasonableness,” political scientist Oskar Kreici said in an interview with Prvnizpravy.cz.

Prvnizpravy.cz: On Thursday at the conference “Geopolitics of Russia”, which was held in Bratislava, you stated that “this world is not the best possible world, but we will not improve it with war”. Do you think that there is a threat of war?

Oscar Kreici: We must distinguish between small and large wars, sometimes even world wars. Small wars do not threaten - they are already underway. The Heidelberg Institute for the Study of International Conflicts in its annual report with the characteristic name “Conflict Barometer” last year counted limited wars in the world of 19 wars and 24 ...

- Not the best numbers!

- In fact, the situation is the same as in 2014. But I repeat again: these are the so-called small wars. We can call big wars between the central powers, such as the world war that ended 71 a year ago. There are currently no such wars.

- Well, is there, in your opinion, the threat of a big war?

- Of course. We need to warn against war, when people are threatened with war.

- Now you answered as a political activist. And could you go back to the political analysis?

- The military capabilities of the powers to wage a big war are growing and modernizing. However, a strategic balance was reached between those powers that most criticize each other, and between which there is tension. And this means that a rational calculation of the expediency of war says that there will be no war.

- And what is, in your opinion, rational calculation?

- Comparison of costs and acquisitions. Cold counting how much a possible big war will cost you, and what you will get from it. A big war, for example, between Russia and the United States has a large negative profit - this is the road to suicide, not only of these powers, but of all mankind.

- So you are convinced that there is no threat of a big war? You just said that there is a threat ...

- To say that a war cannot begin on the basis of rational calculations means to incline to the fact that it can flare up due to lack of rationality. Any war in stories humanity was the result of human error of the mind: people did not agree as intelligent beings about the division of certain lands and therefore began to behave like predators. War is an irrational atavism.

The big war is in the nature of a geopolitical break. It happens when private problems accumulate, which together cause a synergistic effect. Someone made the wrong calculation: let's say he thinks that he gained impunity thanks to antimissile defense - and he attacks. Or he comes to the conclusion that, apart from the war, there is no other solution. That a war should be started, because the one who attacks first gains an advantage that the defender cannot compensate. Probably, this was the reason for the start of the First World War, when incorrect calculations of the military led politicians to a decision that many of them did not want.

The world that relies on the idea that politicians are always rational is a world standing in the sand. Remember how recently Obama admitted the fallacy of the decision to attack Libya. He stated that on the second day after the start of the operation he realized that it was a mistake. But even on the first day after the start, it is too late. Scary late. Irreversibly late.

- Similarly, the Second World War can serve as an example of irrationality in politics. Russian analyst and publicist Nikolai Starikov, for example, at the above-mentioned Bratislava conference, being a guest of her student part, spoke about Hitler’s irrationality, which attacked the Soviet Union despite the principles of geopolitics.

- Hitler is, first of all, an example of the limitedness of rationality in politics. John Marshamer, a professor at the University of Chicago and probably the most prominent figure in modern American theory of international politics, uses the coefficient called “economically fit for war” in his analyzes. According to this author, in 1920, the German share in the European economy suitable for war was 38%, and in 20 years - 36%. But at the beginning of the Great Patriotic War, the potential of the occupied countries, for example 9% of France, should also be considered. In the case of the Soviet Union, we see an increase from 2% in 1920 to 28% in 1940. By these numbers, the incredible tension of the Soviet Union is understandable, creating enormous potential to resist an attack, but still, it seems, insufficient. In addition, it is necessary to take into account the fact that a large part of the territory, where most of the industry of the Soviet Union was located, was occupied by German Nazis in the first months. According to Marshamer, by the end of 1941, the Soviet Union had lost 41% of its railways, 42% of electricity production, 71% of iron ore sources, 63% of coal and 58% of steel production. In 1942, Nazi Germany had an economic advantage over the Soviet Union in the ratio of 3: 1.

And despite this, the Red Army men hoisted the Victory flag in Berlin. Hitler and his generals calculated the soldiers, motorized units, aircraft, made plans tank wedges and destruction of airfields. This was all true, and therefore they practically managed to defeat the Red Army. But they did not calculate the determination of the people and the mind of the Soviet leadership. And it managed to transfer a significant part of the economy fit for war to the Urals and organize the Red Army in a new way. This required both the incredible determination of the people of the Soviet Union and the extraordinary organizational skills of Soviet civilian and military leaders.

“But if you look at the streets and television screens, it seems that the American troops won the war.” Do you overestimate the role of Russia, or rather of the Soviet Union?

- Let us leave aside today the figures that tell how many Soviet soldiers died in World War II and the liberation of Czechoslovakia, and how many are American. Let us pay tribute to the fallen Red Army soldiers by trying to understand how it turned out that the Soviet Union did not lose the war, although all possible advantages were on the side of Nazi Germany.

First of all, I will say: Russia is a Phoenix, it can rise from the ashes. Five times in history, Eastern Slavs created the state: Kievan Rus, which was destroyed by the Mongol yoke. Then came the Muscovite Russia, which was devastated by the unrest and the Polish-Swedish troops. Then - the Russian Empire, which buried the revolutionary 1917 year. The Soviet Union, another state entity, destroyed perestroika. Now a new Russian Federation has risen from the ashes. The Russians are the people who managed to overcome the difficulties that destroyed other civilizations.

- And again you find yourself in a situation where someone can accuse you of uncritical admiration for Russia.

“Maybe, but what I’m talking about is finding ways to understand these amazing cycles.” It is enough to think about this comparison of Russia with the magic Phoenix. The phoenix rises from the ashes, which occurs after the bird burns. And it burns with internal fire, and not because someone burns it. In the collapse of the statehood of Russia, the Russian political elite has always played a crucial role. Rurikovich quarreled, the tragedy in the family of Ivan the Terrible, the inability of the royal court to resist in the First World War. Many of us remember perfectly well the absurd behavior of Mikhail Gorbachev and Boris Yeltsin, who buried not only the Soviet Union, but also Russia.

The Russian land is able to give birth to both brilliant and incredibly incompetent statesmen. Russia is also full of both outstanding intellectuals and intellectuals possessed by demons of hypercriticism, in the words of Dostoevsky. Just look at the Russian Internet or on the shelves of a Russian bookstore. If we add pressure from the West to this, primarily in the form of NATO expansion, then only you will understand the fears of many Russians.

“During his visit to Europe, Barack Obama, in a speech delivered in Hanover, spoke of“ Russian aggression, which obviously violates the sovereignty and territorial integrity of an independent European state of Ukraine, which makes our allies in Eastern Europe worry ”. Russia allegedly "threatens the progress that was made after the end of the Cold War."

- It was interesting to follow the audience in that big hall in Hanover. Listeners interrupted President Obama several times with applause. But when he spoke about Russia, a cold audience listened to his words. Anyone who thinks at least a little bit knows how many mistakes have been made since the end of the Cold War. I recall, for example, the war in Yugoslavia fueled from abroad, the expansion of the alliance to the East, the coup in Kiev and counterproductive sanctions. And the list goes on. By this I do not claim that Moscow made no mistakes. But it seems to me that what Washington considers progress, all the others are simply obliged to consider it as such. In my opinion, the period after the Cold War is, above all, a period of missed chances.

- I noticed that you are considering the topic of tidal and ebb waves in relations between the West and Russia in the new edition of your book “The Geopolitics of the Central European Space”, which came out this week. But back to Obama's speech. In the aforementioned speech in Hannover, he praised Europe’s contribution to the treasury of freedom and humanism. Perhaps it is this motive that we must remember in his speech.

- First of all, someone should explain to the President that Europe does not end at the borders of NATO / EU. Geographically, Europe ends in the Urals, and culturally, somewhere in the Vladivostok area. It is impossible to abuse such a valuable concept as “Europe” to separate us and them. Russia is a part of Europe. If Europe has made some progress, Russia will surely play its role in this. And not just NATO / EU.

But you are right, there were a lot of good thoughts in Obama's speech. However, they raise the question, why for nearly eight years, Obama, in the role of the most influential person in the world, did not bring them to life? Who, if not him? Is the world better today than it was on the day Obama came to the White House? It was possible to settle the diplomatic relations of the United States with Iran and Cuba. Good. However, wars in Libya and Syria were added to the war in Afghanistan and Iraq, and the prisoners in Guantamo grew old for another eight years. Instead of resetting relations with Russia, we had a united West against Russia, the situation on the Korean Peninsula deteriorated rather than improved. Everyone arms race, and about a world without nuclear weaponswhich Obama described so well in his speech on Hradchanskaya Square, we can forget. Many of us pinned on Barack Obama the hope that he will bring change for the better, and “we” in this case includes the committee for the award of the Nobel Peace Prize. Now it seems that the “Obama era” was only a chain of unfulfilled hopes.

- It sounds very hostile and, I would say, too personally.

- I do not dispute Obama's good intentions. But his fate reaffirmed that to make a political career and to be able to fulfill your intentions on your accomplished post are two different things.

            I would transfer the image of the Phoenix to the real plane. IN THE UNITY OF THE PEOPLE OF THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION, the root is buried - this is the main thing. Take care that Gorbachev and Yeltsin did not understand. Even the most prosperous Ukraine, being among friendly countries, has found "aggressors and enemies" and is burying itself in a hole. Being under external control and defending the interests of others, the Kiev authorities are ready to kill their people. So it is impossible to build a prosperous country - there is no unity there even between fraternal peoples. And all this is the fault of the politicians.
            Ovechkin is certainly a cool player, but Kudesnik (Pavel Datsyuk) is the best fellow ... a universal player, can do anything and everywhere ... In my opinion, it is necessary to form a national team of Khlovites, the Khlovites come "killed" after a difficult season and it is not right to bet on them in my opinion. I wish all of our success! I do not expect anything from RUSSIA, except for GOLD - at home they simply MUST. hi

              I would transfer the image of the Phoenix to the real plane. In the UNITED PEOPLES of the Russian Federation, the root is buried

              It has been noted very accurately that this union of equal peoples among equals in one country is still known from the most ancient history of this unity under the name of Russia. It was in this, in difficult moments for our union, that everyone, regardless of nationality, perceived this common pain as his own - this is the strength of our every rebirth. This is what Oscar Kreichi saw and said in his interview, "And she burns with an inner fire, and not because someone set her on fire."

              I would not judge that. I recall the first five of the "Red Machine" ... Who was the best, Fetisov or Larionov, Krutov, Makarov or Kasatonov? Individually, they were all stars and top-class players ... but only playing together, in the top five , they have become the legend of world hockey, and the standard of the team.

        We will live in Russia. In a state of bright minds, capable of taming their fools and dealing with roads. Today this is hindered by bribery and indifference. These are the two main enemies. "Liberals", this is just a mold that arose precisely on bribery, embezzlement and indifference of citizens. It stinks, but it is not capable of serious harm. Every year it makes its own adjustments, there are fewer indifferent people. And this is an indicator that a revolution of consciousness is possible, when a critical mass of those who are not indifferent will turn the order of things. But being partial is so easy for a Russian person ...

    Well, I would not be so categorical! Russia was reborn from ruins to a lesser extent thanks to someone or something! Rather, she was reborn because of a desire to live her own truth despite pressure! At least this happened before my eyes with the participation of people of my generation! I remember when at the 9 parade on May 1995 in Novosibirsk, my grandmother shouted to the cadets that the fascists and the current parades were marching when it was unlikely that anyone would call our military anything other than defenders!

      Not a single construction project has been completed without a foreman and a construction manager. Whoever believes that something is capable of organizing itself without or in spite of the leading activities of individual individuals, he shows complete incompetence in the logic of life. It can only be people who have never done anything significant. Any movement of any community of people should be led and organized by an active group of people, the so-called. political elite. It seeks to overcome the inertia of society and moves either to progress or to collapse. But society itself is not going anywhere. A dozen rowers will not move the boat from its place until there is a single team, a single route, a single goal. All this is set by some kind of single center that makes decisions. So, comrade deputy_polit, you have studied philosophy poorly, I recommend periodically repeating the basics of political leadership. The grandmother in your example, too, did not come to the realization of the role of cadets in history. Someone for some reason “rinsed out” her brain, but she herself was not enough to resist this “noodles”. What can you do, brain degradation begins at the age of 30, it is a physiological process, and it is already clinical.

      That's it people! But such units. And the rest of the complacent herd is ready to believe in any nonsense voiced by politicians and the media, so lazy and not curious that it is not capable of looking for an alternative opinion. And they are much more concerned about the price of food and the size of their salaries than the history or prospect of an impending new war. After all, they have already been convinced that they are the best that NATO will protect them. So why strain your head, because it is so pleasant to eat through it!

Lieutenant Colonel Helmut Ritgen admitted that" without the Czech military industry and Czech tanks, we would not have had four tank divisions, which would have made an attack on the Soviet Union impossible. "Berlin highly appreciated the contribution of Czech enterprises to strengthening the military-technical power of the Reich and established a flexible system of rewards for the workers of the Czech military factories, including increased food standards, which were sometimes better than in Germany. “The Czechs gave us all the necessary information about their tanks,” recalled the German engineer-colonel Iken: “We have never had to face acts of sabotage or any resistance.”

        And, here is an example of a true labor feat: "... from JANUARY to MARCH 1945, working hard for Hitler in a shock manner, the workers of Prague and Plzen gave 1136 out of 3922 tanks and self-propelled guns produced for Germany. Almost a third! ... "In truth:" Fear the Fuhrer who is shouting, well, a Czech - "hard-working!" amThe historian woke up late in me: the medal was not "For the liberation of Prague", but "For the capture of Prague" ...

          Well now what to say? Who were the Czechs and who is the 3rd Reich? It’s not for us to judge today ... Maybe they shot at one of the factories there through one and told them to do the second rate, or even you’ll be wasted?

            Sorry, buddy, but just for US! and judge, as descendants of the winners! hi Especially considering that "... on March 12, 1999, after the transfer of the relevant documents to Washington, the Czech Republic officially became a member of the North Atlantic Alliance ..."

            If it were, it would be well known fact! If ... for every Julius Fucik - a dozen Schweiks and one hundred Broochkov!

      And no! As a sign of mourning and protest, Czechoslovak engineers and workers at those same enterprises dressed in robes of BLACK COLOR! That is, they were sad, wept at night in pillows, but they continued to rivet Hitler’s tanks. After all, England and France were sentenced to this by the Munich agreement! And they must traditionally listen.

      “The Czechs handed over to us all the necessary information about their tanks,” recalled German colonel engineer Iken. “We never had to deal with shares of sabotage or any resistance.”

      A striking example of this is the Hetzer self-propelled gun, which the Czechs generally designed and built on an initiative basis.

      Dig deeper: without Czech war industry and Czech tanks Hitler would not have had the military potential even to win over Poland! Skoda produced tanks in 1938 more than all of UK!

    When my brother-in-law and I were slaughtering a pig in the village, she resisted, did not want to leave the barn ... How I felt ... Although we very kindly "invited her to go out for a walk." You tell me - if even a pig understands that it is being led to death, then why does Europe not understand that it is appointed by the striped masters to be slaughtered? Is the pig smarter? I'm shocked, but that's how it turns out ... request

      Europeans are used to living well-fed, tasty and according to the principle "this does not concern us." And then came the mattress striped, who, seeing the rise of Russia, decided that it was too early for us to get up from our knees. He pressed down on the most fragile key of the broken piano - Ukraine. With refugees, I think the Americans themselves did not expect, but in any case it plays into their hands ... And the population of "Europe" - tolerant dropouts - do not know the past, the main thing for them is to deflect the present, and do not care about the future. We are not on the way with them, in short

    It is very difficult for a resident of a GREAT country to understand the inhabitants of "small" states. Perhaps only Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, etc. are "more fabulous" than the Czech Republic in Europe. And the fact that "Schweiks" a couple of times with nemchura went to Russia is somehow not even offensive. "Little ones" always want to "understand and forgive";)

    What have you done - the Europeans are, the Europeans are ... The example of this Oscar Kreichi proves that Europeans are not a "smug herd" or all the polls are connoisseurs of same-sex fornication. They all understand perfectly. It's just that the world is now in a phase of such a crisis. Everyone has problems - the European Union is bursting at the seams (and this is bathhurt), the United States is losing its hegemony in world politics (again, bathhurt), the Middle East is burning and from there an inexhaustible stream of angry Muslim refugees is pouring into Europe and Turkey (common hardened bathhurt)! Now attention, a question! How to distract as much as possible the attention of ORDINARY Europeans and Americans, people who by the way really got used to trust their press one hundred percent, from the real problems in their own countries? Right! NEED AN ENEMY IMAGE! Bingo!!! It is this image of the world evil that is AWAKENING, which has already swallowed the Crimea, which will swallow the Baltic a little bit more ("... the squeak of crushed Lithuania will sweep over Europe ...") - this image of the true Mordor should UNITE Europeans and Americans ... We have recently been appointed to the "honorary" position of the Orcs of Middle-earth. We, abanamat, frighten children in Europes, if they get out of hand. Yes, and well, they will not rock the boat anyway - half a ball will turn into ash, and it is not yet clear who will get the square kilometers that have survived. And the fact that they bark ... Well, only truly strong people can admit their mistakes, and not Conchita-pah-you-curse-Gonzalez!)

    Many Europeans do not agree with the policies of the United States and Obama, but they are silent and only a few try to expound the real side of politics and the position of Russia when Europe is united against it. The Czech politician is trying to convey that the current political situation is a lost opportunity to find a common language with Russia, but the US is against it. But his reasoning is a drop in the ocean, Europeans continue the policy of Russophobia. Well, we have no choice but to live and build a new economy without the participation of Europe.

    The big war is in the nature of a geopolitical break. It happens when private problems accumulate, which together cause a synergistic effect. Someone made the wrong calculation: let's say he thinks that he gained impunity thanks to antimissile defense - and he attacks. Or he comes to the conclusion that, apart from the war, there is no other solution. That a war should be started, because the one who attacks first gains an advantage that the defender cannot compensate. Probably, this was the reason for the start of the First World War, when incorrect calculations of the military led politicians to a decision that many of them did not want.

    This gentleman repeats in a different form of MARX and ULYANOV-LENIN.

    In terms of conflict dynamics, it is usually described as follows:
    accumulation of contradictions and the formation of relations between the parties;
    increase and escalation of training;
    the conflict itself;
    conflict resolution.
    The first stage is characterized by the accumulation of contradictions, the elucidation of the positions of the parties, the sounding of potential allies, the hidden accumulation of forces. At this stage - if detected - the greatest likelihood of avoiding conflict.
    The second stage is the stage of differentiation and gradual polarization of the parties. Contradictions are becoming more acute. The parties cease to perceive each other's arguments. There is an active escalation of power, the search and attraction of allies to your side, the neutralization of possible allies of rivals.
    The third stage is the most acute, most dramatic stage - the course of the conflict. This is actually the stage of the political "denouement". At this stage, the development of a political conflict into a military one is likely.
    The fourth stage is the end of the conflict.

    Russia is obliged to rise from the ashes.
    We were even obliged by the international:
    "We will destroy the whole world of violence to the ground, and then
    We are ours, we will build a new world ... "

    Here we are building!
