Why did Moscow agree to participate in an anti-Russian transport project?

Far from always the result of the actions taken by Russia in the international arena is obvious at first glance.

It is precisely such non-obvious results that include the participation of Russia in the initially anti-Russian transport project Baku-Tbilisi-Kars.

The railway route from China, through Azerbaijan and Georgia, leaving to Turkey, and there to the Mediterranean Sea, which is a direct competitor to the Russian Trans-Siberian Railway, should have become an alternative that allows you to bypass Russia.

In addition, the question has acquired political coloring after Georgia pledged to make the transition from the Russian gauge to the European gauge in its logistics center in Akhalkalaki, which in the future could contribute to further distancing the region from Russia.

However, the Georgian leadership did not calculate its strength and the project, despite the launch, eked out a miserable existence, nevertheless, remaining potentially dangerous for Russia.

The Russian side was able to reverse the polarity of the anti-Russian project and get from this not only economicbut also political gain.

    Money for politicians does not smell. They smell of gunpowder for the population.

    Lack of appointment of professionally fit managers. Persons of second roles are appointed, which has an appropriate result for the state. The state remains on the sidelines.

    Another advertisement of our government. But if our government is doing everything right, then why are prices on everything rising, but there is no salary? I would be glad this road, if at least getting to the Crimea by rail became 2 times cheaper.
