Recently in the West, something too painfully suspiciously revived conversations on the topic "the need for change in Russia." Combined with an even more suspicious intensification of the domestic “opposition” in the country and really negative moods in the country, this leads to very specific conclusions.
Too much testifies to the fact that a new “perestroika” is being prepared for our Motherland, in general, according to the patterns of the 80s of the last century, but, naturally, adjusted for today's realities. They are trying to push Russia onto the very suicidal path that the Soviet Union once took, the path that brought him not “renewal” or “acceleration,” but death and collapse. Such assumptions are not conspiracy theories, but have more than real grounds in the form of reliable facts.
The return of the "style icon"
Strictly speaking, the mere fact that "the father of perestroika," and, accordingly, the main culprit of the collapse of the USSR, Mikhail Gorbachev suddenly "emerged" from his political and media non-existence, which speaks volumes. No, of course, you can write off a bunch of interviews that recently the “last secretary general” began to distribute to the Western media right and left, exclusively by the thirtieth anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall and the ensuing events. However, this is unlikely to be correct. In his outpourings, Mikhail Sergeyevich does not so much indulge in memories (which is typical, absolutely not recognizing any mistakes!), How much he tries to “turn the arrows” to current realities, and even undertakes to make “diagnoses”, announce “recipes” and climb with tips! What is the use and damage, to explain, I think, is not necessary. What can this “figure” advise, which, as numerous opinion polls show, the vast majority of our compatriots - former citizens of the USSR, would strangle with their own hands with voluptuous pleasure? In any case, every fourth considers himself the “victims of perestroika” in Russia today, if I am not mistaken ...
Here Gorbachev also advises - in his own corporate identity. He complains that “there is a“ chilled war ”between Russia and the West and immediately calls on“ all the peoples of the world ”to immediately“ get rid of nuclear weapons ”. To the White House with such ideas! But we definitely shouldn’t disarm now - they were already disarmed in the 90s under the "strict guidance" of this very "clever man" and his ideological followers according to, if it was amiss, to "new thinking." However, all right, the “chief perestroika” would have climbed only into questions of the external policy. No, he is itching to teach the leadership and people of Russia, claiming "the need for change in the country", again mumbling something about "democratization and modernization." Great again ... As far as we know, he even managed to get a new little book on this subject - something about the "future of the global world". And it threatens all of us with “inertia, stagnation, political apathy” in the event that “the issue of the succession of power is not resolved,” and “political processes and decisions will continue to be confined to one person.” Well, who exactly is meant is understandable. At the same time, Mikhail Sergeyevich also lacks shame to clarify that the “reforms” in Russia, they say, “should take place without chaos and destabilization”. And where were you, so smart ?! That in 1986, that in 1991 ... No, your will, but repeated replication of the hypocritical ideas of this Judah and the destroyer, which the media of the West are so keen on today, from the Russian Air Force service to Figaro and Der Spiegel, is all for good reason .
In the West - delight and anticipation
However, the provision of the “tribune” of the pro-mothballed leader of the USSR to the pro-mothballed leader of the USSR is, of course, not limited there. In fact, publications devoted to our country in the main media of the West in recent years can be clearly divided into three categories. First of all, those that tell about the terrible “Russian threat”. This is difficult. The authors have to simultaneously intimidate the audience and not forget that "Russia is a weak, undeveloped country." Well, get out as they can. For example, The Telegraph finds a way out of the situation, quoting the words of General Nick Carter that “treacherously trying to destroy the Western way of life” Russians do not dare to fight openly, but they are so “reckless" that they can cause a world war " unintentionally. " Great logic! However, in the publications of the second category under consideration it is even less. After all, they are mainly devoted to the argument that economy Russia is “stagnating”, the level of development is “rapidly falling” (if reality corresponded to these considerations, we would have lived in the Stone Age), and in the “bright future”, freed from “energy dependence”, our country will fully expect kirdyk. In any case, the same Financial Times categorically asserts: “Russia can repeat the fate of the USSR!” All you have to do is take away from her “oil and gas revenues” ...
All this, frankly, has long been familiar and familiar. Well, except that estimates have recently become more categorical, and "forecasts" - more apocalyptic. However, now we are most interested in that category of creativity of Western colleagues, which is devoted to "the formation of the protest movement in Russia." This is where the local media write, talk and film a lot and with pleasure. The Atlantic Council is particularly close to the theme of Russian youth, which "gets out of the control of the Kremlin and begins to create its own political identity!" What a joy! The Americans are just delighted to relish statistics that testify to the large number of young people and adolescents among participants in the summer Moscow protests. True, at the same time they manage to “pierce”, quoting the statements of these same “Protestants”, perfectly demonstrating the level of intelligence of this, God forbid, “future country”. The very one who is indignant today: “the authorities do not want to let anyone in”, “they think only of themselves, but they put it on the common people” ... Well, Marat and Robespierre. At least ... These wretched statements, however, do not in the least prevent the authors of the publication from expressing their ardent hope that it is “Russian youth ... with their openness and fearlessness, that can play a key role in the political changes in Russia ... "That is, they plan to drive children to future Maidan. They just can't wait in the West - when will they start ?!
"Liberators" on the march
It should be noted that our domestic “opposition” has lately been displaying outstanding agility and activity. "Program activities" follow one after another. True, for some reason they are held away from their native aspens. Obviously, closer to the sponsors ... The Nemtsov Forum, for example, was recently held in Warsaw. There Navalny turned out to be a recognized "star", boasting to everyone and everyone that he was justly recognized as a foreign agent of FBK, he would still drink blood to the "authorities", and it was not without reason that he was "afraid of Putin." Well, according to Navalny ... However, the main thing at this gathering was not traditional self-praise, but "the development of new struggle strategies." Alas, from the Moscow events, this company concluded: "the government makes concessions if it is pressed." This is what they are going to do, arranging new provocations in order to provoke “tragic plots with protesters” and thus compromise the state even in the eyes of “political apathetic people.” In a word, more blood and everything will be OK! Also, the Russians, who, in the words of Navalny himself, intend to “influence through the economy”, intend to “influence through the economy” the Russians who do not want to join the “revolutionary system”. That is, continue to tell them how poorly they live now and how satisfying and warm they will be under the wise guidance of the West. What is unpleasantly annoying regarding the Warsaw gathering is not just the participation of Polish officials, including the head of the Foreign Ministry there, Jacek Chaputovic, but his speech, in which, drawing parallels, again with the “perestroika” 80s, significantly declared: “It is possible that in Russia the changes are much closer than they seem ...” Warsaw clearly wants to light a fire in our country to the skies. The desire, one might say, age-old, primordial. Now nobody just hides it.
The second similar “gangway” - “Forum of free Russia” was held in another capital, “friendly” to us, Vilnius. There, by the way, the audience gathered more generously. In addition to trying to make themselves “shake hands” and sane politicians Kasparov and Ponomarev, the Sabbath was decorated with the presence of the most inveterate Russophobes, such as Babchenko, Mujabaev and even Sentsov. The latter, by the way, with all the fervor convinced the audience that there was nothing to play in “non-violent revolutions”. Tires need to be burned! And then, obviously, in the classics: “take everything and share” ... Well, judging by the fact that Mr. Kasparov said that “someday this forum will gather in Russia and will be called the Constituent Assembly”, ambitions and the appetites there are just colossal. By the way, with great enthusiasm the audience once again welcomed the anti-Russian economic sanctions and even took part in the flash mob “Stop! Nord Stream 2, calling for a ban on the pipeline. True patriots, there’s nowhere to put stigmas ... One way or another, but the West today is betting on them. Russia will be pushed by all means towards a new "perestroika" and "democratization." Generally speaking, there are two ways here: either by exerting extremely harsh pressure on the Kremlin to achieve the penetration into power of the above-mentioned characters by legal means, through elections, after which they will launch the necessary processes. Or, again and again, trying to tense the situation in the country to the limit, to ensure the transfer of the same power to all the same "opposition" in any other way, up to violent. The end result from the ways to achieve it, in fact, does not change - here that is about the stump, that we kick about the owl. The main thing is to start the process of the collapse of the country.
This time they will finish
And the fact that it is precisely the destruction of Russia, as a sovereign state, is absolutely not to be doubted. The West, if it presents itself with such an opportunity, will not repeat its past mistakes in any case. Then, in fact, the gentlemen from the "civilized world" miscalculated in one thing: based on their eternal disregard for Russia and the Russians, on a constant underestimation of the potential of our country and people, they considered that it would be enough to tear off the Union republics from Moscow with a subsequent transformation them into anti-Russian projects. With the further disintegration of Russia itself, one can wait. Regarding whether such plans were hatched, there can be no two opinions. Too much evidence has surfaced, including recently. On the other hand, the Yeltsin "team of reformers" took up the task of destroying the state so zealously and on such a scale that the customers of the "perestroika" decided that it would do so, so far it was not worth interfering. The project on the final dismemberment of what was left, the beginning of which was supposed to be Chechnya, was launched with a delay that was enough for Putin to come to power to disrupt its implementation. And subsequently - and to reverse all the destructive processes that nearly ruined the country. He managed, according to many experts, literally at the very last moment. A little more, and there would simply be nothing to save.
This time you can be sure that in the event of a “change in the political system” in Russia, the beginning of processes similar to those that preceded the collapse of the USSR and accompanied it, the West will act in a completely different way. Much sharper and tougher, first of all. The division of our homeland into "specific principalities" will be the first step. Next is the complete destruction of the Russian military-industrial complex, which today scares NATO to hiccups. “Disarmament” will be compulsory and complete, up to the destruction of the last training ground, the last gun factory in Tula or Izhevsk. However, the same fate will befall all other industries. Neither science, nor industry, nor culture, nor education will leave us anything. Nothing that in the future, even theoretically, could become a support for again trying to rise to the feet of the "Russian colossus" hated by the West. Everything will begin, possibly again with “publicity” and “acceleration,” but it will end in utter ruin and scorched earth. If someone thinks that in Washington, London, and Brussels they just dream of getting rid of the “evil” and damn intractable Putin in order to put someone more acceptable to the Kremlin for themselves, then he is deeply mistaken. Once they have already done so there. And how did it end? That's it, Putin ended ... This time, I think, the Kremlin will try to demolish it to the base, and not change anyone there. For the sake of lesser things, the West simply would not have started all that is now being planned. Russia is too big for the West, too dangerous. This is not Georgia, not Ukraine and not even Belarus. This time they will not take prisoners. They will destroy ...
Yes, life in today's Russia is perhaps far from perfect. There are no milk rivers with sweet sides, and indeed ... Yes, power is wrong, rude and even soulless (as, indeed, everywhere in the world). Yes, many people want “changes” - it doesn’t matter what specifically, but to be sure “for the better.” This is normal. Here are just once on this our desire has already been played. It was he who was used as a force that destroyed our country and broke the lives of millions of people. Is it worth repeating the mistake? Especially when you consider that this time its price will be even worse.
