Project "ZZ". Who did not, he was late

The largest failure of B.H. Obama's Time magazine called policy toward Russia. By his sanctions, the President of the United States achieved the opposite of what he had planned: the Russians fell in love with Putin even more, and in the West they saw an insidious enemy. Apparently, foreigners also fell in love with Putin: every day, a new report about the capture of a Kremlin spy with a wad of money — either Portuguese or Polish. All the secrets of NATO have already been sold. There is nothing left for Mr. Stoltenberg how to announce an increase in defense spending. Even peaceful Swedes were aroused: now they are ready to “get into the game.”

Project "ZZ". Who did not, he was late

Terrible Putin. Video Frame: Magazine Website Newsweek

Ian Bremmer in the magazine "Half" smashed the political "balance" of Barack Obama: he highlighted his main presidential successes and failures. In some countries, for example, in Vietnam and Cuba, Obama succeeded, but in others, for example, in Russia (at the same time in Ukraine), Mr. President has ruined foreign policy.

The expert is convinced that Russia and Ukraine turned out to be the biggest failure of Obama’s foreign policy today.

The confrontational approach of the United States led to the opposite result: Putin did not lose popularity, but, on the contrary, he acquired it even more. In addition, he was able to "demonize the West."

Putin's rating is very high, and this is noted by Western researchers. For example, the Pew Center, which conducted a global survey last summer, cited the following data: 88% of Russians trust Putin and believe that he is doing the “right things” in world politics. And more than 80 percent of Russians approved the behavior of Putin in a dialogue with the United States, Ukraine and the European Union.

Of course, the decline in oil prices and sanctions hit the Russian economy: in 2015, Russia's GDP fell by 3,7%, and the unemployment rate rose to 7,4%. But Putin's rating is still at the top - more than 80 percent. He used high oil prices in the last decade to accumulate foreign exchange reserves. He created an airbag of almost 600 billion dollars. Russia has spent part of these savings, but it still has more than $ 375 billion in funds on a rainy day.

The Journal Newsweek (European edition) intelligibly explained to the Western public, why Russians are so fond of Putin.

Yes, Russia is usually described as a state in which kleptocracy reigns, in which criminals rule the ball, and continuous propaganda is pouring from television screens (the Kremlin “surprisingly” openly announces the last fact). Dissenters are jailed here. But along with all this, it is indicated in the material of the publication, Russia is rich, the poor have become "much less than they were just a couple of decades ago." And even the scandal with the Panamanian documents did not impress the Russians. By the way, they generally believe that all this is Western intrigues.

Historically, Russia has long been a great power that dominated Eastern Europe and Central Asia, able to compete with states like the British Empire and at the height of its power to participate in the “big game” on the globe. Its power only strengthened under the Soviet regime, the magazine reminds. The USSR opposed both the USA and NATO. True, the Soviet Union burst out and “crumbled under its own economic weight,” but this is “a completely different question,” the article notes.

The fact is, the author points out that the Russian people are used to being “a strong and respected nation.” After the collapse of the USSR, Russia was in fact cut off from its “colonies”, including Ukraine. But the enemies of Russia, especially NATO, began to grow rapidly. Russia no longer had "values ​​on the world stage", and NATO, on the contrary, was building up its muscles.

Putin, the author believes, has begun “to restore the prestige of Russia, the revival of its pride and power.” He showed the whole world that no one will помsleep around Russia ’. Russia is a participant in global politics and is positioning itself accordingly. Here are examples of her actions: Georgia, Ukraine, Syria. Russia is playing the big game again.

And the Russians love Putin for it, according to the material.

"He put them food on the tables, put money in their pockets and instilled pride in their hearts."

In response, they turned a blind eye to the “disappearance” of certain dissident and opposition politicians, to the beating of other protesters and their imprisonment. "The cart is full of apples - who wants to turn it over?"

Apparently, Putin was fallen in love not only by Russians, but also by foreigners: every day, then a new message about the capture of a Kremlin spy with a bundle of money — either in Portugal or in Poland.

Newspaper «The Times» writes: "Frederico Carvalhão Gil was arrested for allegedly selling NATO secrets to agents in Russia". Here and without translation everything is clear. Comrade Frederico Gilles sold the secrets of NATO to the Russians and was arrested.

He sold in envelopes, nice, neat. The envelope was put on the table, on the other side of which sat the “Russian curator”. Selling secrets confirmed: Russian President Putin is interested in "Western secrets."

Putin chose Rome as the center of “espionage”: the deals were held there.

Mr. Gilles tried to haggle the secrets of NATO military bases, defense systems and communications. He came into contact with an officer of the Foreign Intelligence Service of Russia. Eight Western intelligence agencies managed to arrest not only Gilles, but also this officer. The identity of the latter is for some reason not revealed.

At the time of the transfer of documents through the table, the police detained the seller and buyer.

Each of the documents was estimated at ten thousand euros.

Gilles headed the division of one intelligence service of Portugal and therefore had access to the secrets of NATO.

Another "Putin spy" caught in Poland.

Lieutenant Colonel of the Polish army was sentenced to prison for spying for Russia, said "".

“A military court in Warsaw sentenced an officer of the Polish army, Lieutenant Colonel Zbigniew Yu., To six years in prison for spying for Russia,” the publication quoted the representative of the court.

The verdict was made on April 26, but it was not reported due to an agreement with the defendant. The latter made a deal with the investigation and admitted his guilt. Case materials were classified. There is information that the convict allegedly handed over to the investigators the names of Polish servicemen who could be recruited.

Zbigniew Yu. Will be deprived of civil rights to 5 years. 17 thousand zlotys (approx. 4,3 thousand dollars) and a telephone were seized from him. All this he is supposed to have received as a reward for illegal activities.

It became known earlier that another person, the leader of the pro-Russian Polish party Smena, Mateusz Piskorski, was sent under arrest. He is suspected of spying for a foreign state.

Looks like all the secrets of NATO are sold. There is nothing left for Mr. Stoltenberg how to announce an increase in defense spending.

This year, spending on the defense of European NATO states will grow. This will happen for the first time in nearly 10 years. The reason for this will be the threat of "Russian aggression", as well as the migration crisis. About this in an interview "The Financial Times" declared the NATO secretary general himself.

2016 will be the year during which European defense allies' spending will increase, Jens Stoltenberg said. According to him, this will happen "for the first time in many, many years."

Even peaceful Swedes were aroused: now they are ready to “get into the game.”

A colonel, a member of the Royal Academy of Military Sciences (Sweden), Bo Husemark, told his compatriots about what would happen if the Russians occupy the Baltic states. Sweden can not stay away. About this, the colonel told through the newspaper "Svenska Dagbladet" (the source of translation - "InoSMI").

The colonel advises to imagine: what if Russia holds a “blitzkrieg” and “occupies the Baltic states”? Moreover, Russia will do this before NATO sees the danger. The seizure is over, Moscow proclaims the Baltic states to be its own and motivates this “historical and humanitarian arguments. ”

“Any attempts by the West to repel the Baltics risk provoking a nuclear attack,” the military expert continues to fantasize. “Can NATO force itself to launch a counter-offensive?”

The colonel hints that Russia may bluff, threatening nuclear weaponsHowever, NATO hardly dares to check if the bluff is here or true.

The Royal Academy of Military Sciences, points out further Bo Hügemark, analyzed the situation and made a statement under the heading "To help the brothers." NATO should create footholds on the territory of the Baltic states, which will become bases for a counter-offensive, the document says.

“Such a counteroffensive will require quick and unimpeded military-air operations, as well as airborne troops to the Baltic region. Then Sweden will enter the game. We will have to do everything to ensure the success of such operations. Give NATO aircraft free access to our airspace, put our bases at the disposal of the alliance, prevent Russians from deploying air defense systems in Gotland, and so on. ”

We think that in this picture only one is missing. Colonel forgot to order the quartering of peaceful NATO members in the houses of the Swedes.

* * *

In spite of the West, Russians strongly love Putin and make him a rating, which is confirmed by sociological research at the international level. President BH Obama blatantly blundered foreign policy: trying to throw Putin off the throne with the hands of the people, he only strengthened his power. Even Ian Bremmer, whom you cannot call a pro-Russian expert, does not doubt this.

Spies from Poland and Portugal are concentrated in Rome, where on a specially set table they make thousands of deals with Russian “curators”. NATO secret documents are shuffled as decks of cards. Some of the spies, however, are surrounded by a tight ring of policemen and are arrested, but this is what happened in Soviet times. Judging by the frequent publications in the media on the topic of espionage, the competition among the Poles and others who want to trade in Western secrets is great. The queue with envelopes will probably be longer than the queue for toilet paper during the Soviet era.

            No, they won't wipe their feet on themselves. The goal of the US is clear: it wants to "master" the EU market with the help of the Atlantic Partnership (or whatever they called it there). And for this it is necessary to "break" all economic relations between the EU and the Russian Federation. After all, they want to "fill up" the EU with shale energy resources. They put sticks in the wheels of the Southern, Turkish, Northern-2 gas pipelines. We have introduced all sorts of energy packages - they are preparing a place for themselves. (Presumably by 19, when the Ukrainian transit closes the Russian Federation, energy prices will become acceptable for shale producers).
            And Ukraine, Poland and the Baltic states will become a buffer (the new iron curtain) between the EU and the Russian Federation.
            But they just don't take into account Russia's trump cards in this game. And it looks like the Kremlin is not going to sit idly by. It seems to me that this "buffet" will come running tomorrow. Everything is clear with the economies of these countries. The only thing left to do is to "sort things out" with the authorities delicately and politely. You can take an example from the West in the organization of the Maidan, or you can organize parties with movements. And with the EU, which itself is already shouting that security cannot be created in Europe without the Russian Federation, one can "sort it out" alone ...

            The West has implemented the idea of ​​permissiveness, abandoned traditional values, and brought up several generations of "koekaker". He drove himself into a trap. The inability of politicians to adequately assess their actions, their results and consequences, even in the short term. Has led directly to the opposite result. With Russia, everything is clear, the more pressure from outside, the more united the people. But even in the west, all carriers of traditional foundations could not be destroyed - assimilated. And here's the result. The ranks of supporters of Russia and its leader Vladimir Putin are growing.

              What is happening in the USA is a regularity. This is inevitable. Capitalism and democracy are not compatible things. There are violations of the laws of the world. They are corrected but it is temporary. If the quality is not changed, progress will not work.

              By the way, one does not need to relax in the Russian Federation. There have not yet been any qualitative changes. GDP, knows what to do. While preparing the ground. Let's see how it goes.

        Russian historian and philosopher Ivan Ilyin wrote: “Europe does not know us ... because it is alien to the Slavic-Russian contemplation of the world, nature and man. Western European humanity is moving by will and reason. The Russian man lives first of all with his heart and imagination, and only then with his mind and will. Therefore, the average European is ashamed of sincerity, conscience and kindness as “stupidity.” A Russian person, on the contrary, expects from a person primarily kindness, conscience and sincerity. The European, brought up by Rome, despises to himself other nations and wants to rule them. The Russian man always enjoyed the natural freedom of his space ... He always "wondered" at other nations, good-naturedly got along with them and hated only invading enslavers ... ". The Russian neighbor’s mercy and justice are evidenced by the good neighborly attitude towards the peoples of the annexed territories. The Russian people did not commit such atrocities as enlightened Europeans on conquered lands. In national psychology there was a certain restraining moral principle. By nature, a strong, hardy, dynamic people was endowed with amazing survivability. The famous Russian patience and tolerance for others were based on strength of spirit. Under continuous invasions from all sides, in incredibly harsh climatic conditions, the Russian people colonized vast territories without destroying, enslaving, robbing or crossing forcibly any nation. The colonial policy of the West European peoples uprooted the aborigines of the three continents, turned into slaves the population of vast Africa and invariably the metropolis is rich at the expense of colonies.

          Your Ivan Ilyin, of course knew where the dog rummaged. I got it with my mind. But even before him, everything had been said for a long time. Diogenes, Aristotle. By the way, no one knows why the philosopher Diogenes lived in a barrel? Think when it comes to you then consider that you know how the world works. Who is God, Jesus, Satan. How to restore the state, and how to destroy it.

          Okay, this is all an intrigue. Now to our sheep.

          Have you all seen in the "program time" a blossoming and joyful LADY? A new law was invented in road traffic. Do you know that this "devil from a snuff box" created a law that violates morality? This leader, violating morality, created a law that creates an idea of ​​false security.

          There will be questions without hesitation. I will answer.

            atalef was busy. :)

            Okay. The intrigue does not work I will answer why the last law in the rules of the road will create problems.

            What kind of moral does each person have? "Live yourself do not bother others to live." Why is that? If you interfere, it will return, it will not seem a little. The usual selfish morality of survival.

            If someone rushes along the road headlong, what should be done? Give way Let it go, what's your business? The police will catch him, so this does not concern you either. Let him catch, you are clean before the law.
            We look further. If you drive and suddenly accidentally find yourself on the path of such an aggressor, what do you think. The first thing you think about is that you drive according to the rules and the law protects me. And here disagreements with the general morality turn out. The aggressor will cut you off, it will slow down before you and God forbid, an accident will turn out.

            Of course you're right. No doubt about it. But the car is broken, time is lost, insurance compensation does not cover the cost of buying a new car, etc. Who has lost? You. Who did win? Lawyers and an insurance company, the state received its fines. Your insurance will increase, do not think that the insurance company will be at a loss. This last law created a false notion of security. This is what is called double standards.

            There are enough rules on the road that develop mutual understanding.

              Oh, and still have to ruin.

              This is a moral that includes ethics, respect for status. Morality is pure pragmatism. Selfishness. I respect you, respect me.

          At first I ran through your post superficially and spoke out, but then I read it in more detail and decided to correct it.


          In the Middle Ages, there was no science of chemistry. Why?
          The knowledge was but they were scattered and it was impossible to conduct communication, discussions between scientists, exchange experience. But once the great Russian scientist (the word scientist appears) D. Mendeleev creates a periodic table of the chemical elements of Mendeleev (system of elements). From this moment, the birth of chemistry began. Why science? Because knowledge received a systematic assessment.

          Philosophy is a science. But this is not all clear. Among the vast array of philosophers of antiquity, the Middle Ages, and modernity, a single terminology system has not been developed. Therefore, philosophy has difficulty finding applied application and is at the margins of all other sciences in popularity. By the way, only Lenin was able to use philosophy in applied applications. He revived the country. Just the point is that.

          Now the answer is why I decided to stick in.

          The concept of the Russian spirit, the mysteriousness of the Russian soul is the moral morality of the philosophical term.

          Morality is a conscious or unconscious following of a single morality, regardless of external circumstances.

          The other day in "Program Vremya" there was a report about a Russian monastery abroad. It spoke about the preservation of high morality by the monks.

          Still would. It is easy to maintain chastity especially if no one gives. Try, monks to maintain their morality outside the walls of the monastery.
          This is not irony, this is a lesson in understanding the world.

              Religion is power realized through moral control.

              The media can absolutely quickly and critically change public opinion, change morality. Thus reducing the role of the church in society.

              It is correct to assume that the church needs to be given the state status of a media censor.

              And then the channels "rain" and "echo of matzo" and there others will simply cease to exist.

                Religion is the most advanced financial system in the world. You can minus me as much as you want, but I don't understand how you can sell spirituality for money. After all, all the services and procedures of the clergy are accompanied by the collection of "donations", which are not checked and are not taxed in any way. And the funny thing is that it is religions that are engaged in the sectorization of society - apparently they do not like competitors.
                Spirituality and religion are different things and, in my opinion, are not compatible. That's when the "Golden Calf" is expelled from the Church, then the power of the spirit will come.

Ulyukaev, Kudrin, Nabiullina at a "brainstorming" recently told us about this ... They say, sacrifice a part of sovereignty, and join the global technological chain, and so that there is no return, we can introduce cryptocurrency to ensure, so to speak, complete freedom and excessive control ... As a tool for globalists. Nothing so spirituality ... So far, colleague, it is not visible that we are cultivating spirituality, but quite the opposite is visible: how the systematic erosion of what we call it is going on ... They have long understood modern Russia ... One hope for "Vanka fool "who is the personification of our spirituality, who will do everything illogical, but will win ... And there seems to be no hope for smart ones.

    Liberala wet the rain -

    This is Putin, not otherwise!
    Did you find a thunderstorm along the way? -
    That got the Kremlin hand.
    Cold, wind, snow -
    Putin is to blame again.
    Blowing down a hurricane? -
    This is Putin taking revenge on the rams.
    Storm, tsunami, flood? -

    Guilty, of course, he ..

      They are worn because they see what kind of lawlessness is going on there in relation to the Russian-speaking population. Instead of drawing public attention and suppressing it, out of democratic habit, this mess is encouraged. Feeling that Russia could get angry and kick them in the face, the threat of "Putin's aggression" was formed.

    The confrontational approach of the United States led to the opposite result: Putin did not lose popularity, but, on the contrary, he acquired it even more. In addition, he was able to "demonize the West."

    I have some kind of dissonance from their logic. What other result can a confrontational approach lead to, and why demonize if everything is clear from the actions. In Ukraine, how was it? They blamed Yanukovych and took control of the country.

    If you look from the point of view of a Westerner, not a drunk, not a fagot, not a sore head, then everything is going very well! NATO reached the borders of the Bryansk, Smolensk, Kursk, and Rostov regions (in fact, because the Ukrainians will let their troops through immediately, and the Balts will simply pave their way with flowers). Americans in Georgia i.e. part of the Black Sea from the Russian coast is already controlled by Europeans. Consequently, the entire North Caucasus and the South of Russia are also under their control. It is a shame to say that Kaliningrad travels to Poland for food. Now sanctions, but before that it was massive. Katayans slowly but inevitably crush Central Asia and Kazakhstan. Further - oil is cheap. In Russia itself, everything rests on GDP, and after that, it’s like that. Well, if it doesn’t start, we’ll squeeze Koenigsberg, then we’ll see what else we can squeeze. Or blow up Russia immediately through Moscow, Petersburg or Sverdlovsk (sorry, Yekaterinburg).
    You can once again recall the sanctions, the Minsk agreements, scandals with the Olympians, other provocations. So what? Yes, almost a complete victory on points, as in boxing. And there is no system to change the course of the battle in the next round.

    The average income of a Russian is 200 euros. As in Bulgaria. This is wildness for a country with such opportunities. It was he who "loved" us even more ... and deeper.
    The income of a citizen must be at least 2000-4000 euros. Everything else is the failure of the government.
