Finns are sure: “A new Stalin will come that will threaten the world”


Finnish readers of the Kaleva newspaper commented on an article published on the website dedicated to the book “Moscow Doctrine,” by British “Russian expert” Keir Giles, which was recently translated into the local market.


This study proposes an author's view of the Russian policies, not much different from traditional western canons.

Russian truth is conditional and variable, and not absolute and constant. Everyday life in Russia includes the willingness to lie in such a way that both the narrator and the listener know that this is a lie. [...] Russia seeks respect through submission and fear

- in such theses Kaleva retells the essence of the book.

The comments of the Finns are quite restrained. There are different opinions, from supporting the author’s view to an openly skeptical attitude to such assessments.

Many times it has been said that nothing good comes from the East. And this is so true.

Putin had two options when he came to power: isolation and war politics, or friendship with the West to build a democratic and economically strong Russia. Unfortunately, Putin chose the first option, and now we can say that he failed both politically and economically. [...]

Russia is not a state, but an empire. Empire is an ancient form of political organization. The state, on the other hand, is a rather young structure. [...] An empire usually does not have clear boundaries beyond which its power ends. [...] The empire is always militaristic and, in essence, is constantly in a state of war against the outside world. When military power is weakened sufficiently, the empire disintegrates. In its place appears several states.

Once this house of cards collapses, it’s unlikely to get any better. Again, a new Stalin will come, who will threaten the rest of the world, lie to people, rule fear. This is a Russian tradition.

[...] "Everyday life in Russia includes the willingness to lie in such a way that both the narrator and the listener know that this is a lie." This statement is certainly true even if the word “Russian” is replaced by the word “American”.

Really familiar feeling. When I read the text, it always seemed to me that Russia was not the only one of its kind. The world's largest superpower, the United States, acts in exactly the same way under President Trump.

Would life be boring without Russia?

Hundreds of thousands of young people who fell and maimed in our last wars would certainly be happy to live a boring life without Russia

    Finns are sure: “A new Stalin will come that will threaten the world”

    - Yes, the "new Stalin" can "come" ... - Just a year, six months ago, this could hardly have been possible; but today this may well happen ...
    - if the situation with the coronavirus does not stabilize (and she "does not think" to stabilize) and the number of victims worldwide reaches several million (even tens of millions) people ... - including in Russia; then the world itself will require a radical transformation and "re-equipment" of human society (and not only medicine will undergo huge changes); and the social basis itself and, most likely, there will be a reassessment of material and spiritual human values ​​...
    - Well, as for Russia; then it is in Russia that these "radical changes" can begin ...
    - Moreover, it is Russia that already has a very rich experience of "such changes" ... - And a fairly significant part of the population of Russia lived "in the era of Stalin" and even more so - in the days of the USSR ... - And today there are a lot of "supporters Stalin "live and well ...
    - So ...- the coronavirus (or rather, a huge number = victims of the coronavirus epidemic) in Russia can push for the organization of a new radical leading political group in Russia ... - The current Communist Party of Russia is hardly suitable for this; but most of the fundamentals and principles of building a society can be taken precisely from the program of the Communist Party ... - And here it is already up to Stalin ... - at hand ... - Because at the very beginning the construction of this new social society will be used and applied harsh Stalinist methods ...
    -So ... ... this is quite possible ...

            All external, and especially internal, the policy of the kings (and the latter - and even more so) led to the collapse of the Republic of Ingushetia. But the Russian bourgeoisie directly and indirectly pushed the Romanovs to this (and helped this from abroad).

              You forget that the struggle against the Russian State has been waged at least since the beginning of the 19th century, by both left and right terrorists. Indeed, from abroad, Ulyanov, Bronstein, Dzhugashvili and many, many others waged their subversive struggle. But this is not scary, but the fact that they at the most dangerous and crucial moment (before the decisive attack on Germany) actually acted as collaborators by directing revolutionary energy against their state. And after all, having signed a shameful world with the enemy, on extremely unfavorable conditions, thereby giving up a huge territory, surrendering the population and paying a huge indemnity.

    No offense to people holding communist views, but this is true. The Communist Party has degenerated. Sometimes Zhirinovsky says the right thing. laughing

    Representatives of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation no longer adhere to the ideas of communism, so they should have changed their name to Social Democrats. This opinion was expressed in his Telegram channel on Tuesday by LDPR leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky.
    Speaking about the changes in the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, he noted that the party members "recognized God and renounced atheism." "They gave up state property and now support the private sector," Zhirinovsky continued, recalling the demand of the Communist Party faction in the Moscow City Duma to support business, as well as the nomination of a "billionaire candidate" from the Communist Party of the Russian Federation in the last presidential election.
    "They moved away from internationalism and became nationalists. In fact, nothing remained in the Communist Party of the Russian Federation from Marx, Engels, Lenin and Stalin. Gennady Andreevich [Zyuganov] is great, he completely changed the party. But this is deceiving millions of people," Zhirinovsky continued.

      123, it began to degenerate after the security agencies were forbidden to conduct investigations against members of the government and the Central Committee.

        I find it difficult to determine the start date and the reasons for this process; in the history of the party it is not strong. But I am sure of the degradation of the party.

          And that means such a plan - to conquer Russia and destroy the population :))) Concentration camps will be built, all will be driven there, destroyed, resources will be appropriated to themselves. Why didn’t they attack in the 90s? Judging by what they write here, you could be taken with your bare hands. And it’s useless to teach you life, because the nature is slavish and lazy.

                  You are not thrilled, but I am deeply, deeply in your opinion ... By the way, but, say, Novoselov and Geim do you consider traitors? When they received the Nobel, the Russian media reported with great pride that they were of Russian origin. At the same time, somehow they did not throw anything about the fact that they were "runaways" to London. For some reason.

                    Here is your opinion to me deeply to one place. All traitors will remain traitors. "Nobel" is one of the instruments of influence of Western structures on the obstinate (we want - we will give, but we want - no). Everyone has already seen how these awards take place (starting with Solzhenitsyn's "beacon of democracy"). Who became the laureate? Obama - it's not clear why? Bear-tagged - as one of the destroyers of the country? Or maybe the nominee is Adolf Aloizych?
                    Give an example of an organization that has repeatedly discredited itself? Oh well...
                    Well, and who (to a large extent) owns the "Russian media", we already know very well (especially all sorts of echoes of matzah, rains, businessmen). Therefore, it is not surprising that those like them were "admired" - for them (as well as for you) what is not worse for Russia is better for them. Russophobes (like anti-Sovietists) were never translated into Mother Russia. They have only one fate - exile or flight, as a result of betrayal.
                    In general, I see no reason to oppose you in the future - have you fled? Well, thank God! The air in the country has become cleaner ... Now, if you had taken the others with you, it would have been wonderful!
                    In general - go, runner.

The same Game and Novoselov, for example. Well, you stay with your sacred bonds, with your 127th place in the world in terms of health care costs, etc., and push all those who disagree.
