Chinese factor: why Trump called Putin to G8

Donald Trump's next extravagant proposal made a fuss and immediately split Europe. The American president said he did not object to Russia's return to the G8. French President Emmanuel Macron obediently supported the idea of ​​a senior comrade, but German Chancellor Angela Merkel spoke out against. What is behind the words of the head of the White House, and with whom does he really want to quarrel with whom?




First of all, what is the G8?

These are G7 (Group of Seven) and Russia. The “Group of Seven,” erroneously called the “Big Seven,” includes the most developed capitalist countries: the USA, Great Britain, Germany, France, Italy, Japan, and Canada that has joined them. By its status, this is a kind of international club, even without a charter, whose members decide annually among themselves how the rest of the world will be divided. Joke. Of course, they simply directly discuss the most pressing problems and develop “coordinated approaches” on them.

Russia, according to today's terminology then still “not kneeling,” was accepted into the club in 1997, and it was transformed into the G8. In 2006, we even hosted the only summit of this organization. The question arises, why did Russia of the late nineties sample be accepted into a narrow club of advanced powers?

It can be assumed that this was done with a large advance; President Yeltsin was patted on the shoulder for the movement "in the right direction." It is significant that in 2014, when Russia rebelled with Crimea, they pointedly pointed to the door. And this leads to certain thoughts.

President Trump literally stated the following:

I have been to many G7 meetings, and I suppose that President Obama thought that it’s not good when Russia is in the lineup because Putin outplayed him, so he wanted to exclude Russia. I think it is much more advisable when Russia is a part, and therefore it should be the G8.


Of course, Trump’s proposal, if desired, is quite possible to fit into the logic of the fight against “Obama’s legacy”. Indeed, the President of the United States is consistently breaking all international designs created by his predecessors. So why should the GXNUMX be an exception? The opposite reaction of France and Germany shows that a split has immediately occurred on this issue.

But still, the idea of ​​Donald trump is, most likely, not to embroil Europe, but to drive a wedge between Russia and China. It’s hard not to notice Moscow’s drift towards Beijing, the Kremlin doesn’t have any particular options, since its own national development project has not yet been formulated.

Washington does not like all this, therefore, that the purchase of Greenland, that the invitation back to the G8, are projects directed against deepening cooperation between Russia and China. If President Putin begins to "behave", he will also be patted on the shoulder in a friendly manner and, perhaps, even a couple of sanctions will be lifted.

    Ha, yes it is

    to embroil Europe

    and in

    to drive a wedge between Russia and China already ...

    - Personally, I am in the subject

    A new twist: Trump wants to return Russia to the GXNUMX.

    already wrote that

    Trump again wants to immediately kill several birds with one stone:
    - When Russia returns to the eight, this ephemeral fake "European unity" will immediately cease to give the impression of an organization even of the level of the Union of the Sword and Shouting (from the "Twelve Chairs" by Ilf and Petrov) ... And this whole ridiculous organization as an opposition to Trump becomes even more ridiculous for him ... - Hahah ...
    - Yes, and Russia itself is becoming more predictable, and more “European subordinate,” and more independent from China’s prevailing opinion of Russia (the Russian representative will not take a Chinese adviser in his pocket for meetings in this “eight”, just as the blacksmith Vakula hid the “unclean” "in your pocket ... - Hahah ...) ... - What does Trump need ...

    - What else is there to add ...
    - I’ll add only personal ... - Personally, I am categorically against the current US policy ... it’s an eternal enemy of Russia and it is unlikely that anything will ever change dramatically in relations between Russia and the USA ... But when it comes to China. .., then ... then ... then ... all other feuds, disagreements, discords, quarrels and conflicts should be thrown aside ... until this world evil is defeated ... - China ...
    - Why did Russia generally adhere to this China ... - and serves, and serves, and bends, and walks on its hind legs, and squeals with joy ... and pleases ... and ... and ... and all this to their own detriment ... - But what is it ... after all ...
    - Well, it's just some suicidal pathology; a surge in the peak of masochistic enthusiasm ... It’s like in the world, when all evil spells damage a person ... and damage to a whole state is brought here ...
    - Yes, thanks to Trump ... - you need to drive a wedge between Russia and China, and then the aspen stake in this world Antichrist ...
    - And then Russia will deal with the Americans one-on-one somehow and "put them in their place" ... - this is not the first time ...
