German media: Putin put Russia under triple blow


Russian President Vladimir Putin underestimated both the Saudis and the coronavirus. This is the conclusion reached by the German edition of Die Welt.


The fact that Russian leader Vladimir Putin, after a telephone conversation with his American counterpart Donald Trump, so quickly decided to participate in the OPEC deal to reduce oil production, says a lot. In particular, that economy Russia, according to German media, is largely “thanks” to the actions of its authorities, came under a triple blow.

Firstly, these are Western sanctions imposed in response to Russia's actions in the Donbass and the annexation of Crimea. These events predictably led to economic and political isolation of Russia, and its GDP growth decreased to 1,3 percent.

The second blow was delivered by the coronavirus pandemic, because of which the whole business life of the country was frozen. In this regard, Putin last week promised financial assistance to small and medium-sized businesses, while retaining 90 percent of the personnel of the enterprises. The country is growing unemployment and poverty, many industries do not work.

The amount of aid and spending of the Russian budget are inextricably linked with oil prices on the world market. And here the third Russian misfortune looms - low prices for “black gold”. Despite agreements with OPEC countries, prices per barrel of oil are unlikely to reach 42 dollars in the near future. But it is of this magnitude that the Russian budget is drawn up.

Thus, the country's authorities now receive only about half of the oil revenues they were counting on.

    There is still the 4th .. blow, which will be later, the export of American (“cheap Arab”) oil at a price somewhere around 30-32 dollars per barrel ... And they will pump their oilmen with cheap loans and drive oil to their market in district 25-28.

      Which 32? Six months will stand 20. And it does not depend on Russia, Saudi Arabia, the USA. 50% it depends on China, and another 50% of its relations with the United States. If the Chinese understand what Medvedev / Putin understood in 2008, the oil industry will be halved or quadrupled in the coming years.

    The farther the worse. Coronovirus can not stop. An increase of 15-17% per day throughout the country. We have a continuous enterprise. And if even one gets sick !? The staff of the last 10 years has not been trained. There will be no one to replace the sick. And the owners do not scratch their turnips. We buy hygiene and sanitation products for ourselves. The owners do not want to spend a dime. And so throughout the city. It seems that Putin and the government of education do not have enough to understand that this infection cannot be overcome with half measures. The greed for money, the brain completely disconnects !?

      All this applies not only to Russia, but to the whole world. It turns out that everyone in the world of education is missing?

        This is not true. Sanitary facilities are at the entrance to each store. The guard will not let go into the store without a mask. On Monday, a decision was made - everyone in public transport should be masked. They handed out free masks in vehicles if you forgot at home or did not hear. Only on Monday. It is not a matter of education, but of the attitude of the government towards the people.

    If the Russian Federation had not annexed Crimea, then there would have been a US base. Who needs it, USA?
    In Russia there are enough of their own funds to live without the West. It is only necessary to raise our own production and support domestic science and education. In the future, clean water and food will be needed, which could become a global shortage. The Russian Federation has it in abundance and it is not worth selling it for American paper, as the Indians sold their land for glass beads.

        The vast majority of Russians are not ready to admit that the United States has long held us not for equal opponents, but for “Indians” who are listening to their “shaman”.

          Verbiage! The Russians are not ready and are not going to recognize themselves as Indians, and not who and for whom they are holding.

      If the Russian Federation had not annexed Crimea, then there would have been a US base.

      If you want, then you can get Russia without the Crimean bases - there have been no cavalry / infantry for a long time, not the 41st year.

      It is only necessary to raise our own production and support domestic science and education.

      Who to lift, what shisha? And who will buy “products of own production” if there are no attendants? For what kind of chumps to raise science and education, if there is no money for medicine?

      In the future, clean water and food will be needed.

      The largest freshwater lake, Lake Baikal, is polluted by yourself so that you can’t drink water. It is best to drink rainwater from a cloud passing over Krasnoyarsk - die immediately and not suffer from hunger.
      Do you happen to live in the Kremlin? There, too, it began with one dreamer and continue to dream so far ...!

        To listen to you, you just need to immediately quit doing all your chores and duties, give up and surrender to the gentlemen of the mattresses. So all this was already in the 90s, and then we did not begin to live better. Then living in Russia was much worse and harder than now. So, we have already passed this, I advise you to remember this and never forget. Approximately in the same way as Russia in the 90s, Ukraine is moving now, only it does not have such resources to later come out of all this shit !!!

        ... If you want, then Russia can be obtained without the Crimean bases ..

        Neither with Crimea, nor without Crimea. Could get it, would have tried. The weak are attacked by the Americans without hesitation. Russia was embarrassed to jerk in 2008 when Georgia, its potential NATO candidate, was given a slap in the face.

        Science and education are being raised for the money that the state currently has. A lot of money goes to protect 60 thousand kilometers of the border of vast Russia. They will create sufficient protective potential from any aggressive pranks, like America, and money will be freed for everything else.
        I don’t understand what are you proud of? The fact that your country prints unsecured goods money? Yes, it worked for a while, while everyone believed in this money. Today everyone already knows the true price of the dollar. It’s not very easy to live on your shitty dollar in your America. Even if we take today's ruble to dollar exchange rate, it turns out that the dollar is revalued once every 6 times in terms of real purchasing power!
        This means that for the ruble equivalent of $ 1000 x74 p. = 74000 rubles. A whole family can live in Russia for a month. Moreover, not bad.
        But in America, you will need 6 times more (and that’s not the fact that you don’t have to live in a tent). Therefore, hammer yourself that kind of money in one place, and it’s better not to stutter about it anymore.

        About clean water.
        Do not worry so much for Russia. Baikal was the largest reserve of fresh (and clean) water in the world, and will remain so.
        It’s better to remember your new American Flint - how you have been poisoned with drinking water for many years. Aren't you from there, by chance? Your head is really stupid.

          You speak well. But Americans live, I would say, not bad. I don't like the USA. But this is the most developed country. They have 383 Nobel laureates, that’s it. And the dollars are in the central bank of Russia, and government bonds are buying again. And in Russia, stop by in the Tomsk region, see how people live. And after the governor sold two districts of cedar for 1% of the cost to the Chinese (Nikita Mikhalkov announced in Besogon and can be read on the Internet), honor and praise to the Russians. The last piece of bread was taken away from the hard workers. Attorney General Seagull lifted the tail to the Chinese and they nipped him. And they cut down the forest further than the hard workers from China. In the Far East, already a fifth of workers from China. What are you doing there? Our Crimea, scream. And the Far East is sailing away. Sanctions are already years old. And EP just talk about import substitution from European to Chinese.

                  Arrived 30 years ago. He worked 60 hours a week for $ 6 per hour and studied in the evenings - education is an investment here, it brings income (if applied) laughing ) Now retired. The house has long been paid, the apartment is in Miami, the children graduated from colleges and we paid for our studies. I have grandchildren. We travel 2-3 a year for 20-30 days on vacation. And this, I think, is a good life. Did the state help? Yes, in the sense that he partially wrote off taxes if he spent $$$ on his training.
                  The main thing in this country is that you make all decisions yourself, independently (work / housing / study), and you don’t depend on the state, you don’t ask for anything and you don’t expect any handouts from him. Technical schools (community college) are cheap (at the expense of the state), but after studying for 3-4 years, you can start with a salary of $ 40-60k a year, and if you add extra classes (the employer pays), then at the level of $ 100k. But it depends, again, on what specialty. And this is without a serious college with its high cost.
                  I repeat once again - this is not luck, this is an exhausting work / study for 4-5-6 years. Everyone with whom we arrived at the same time (or not at the same time) got on their feet. And well worth it. Need patience / work / brains.
                  And further. There is no state media or state television in the country - it is prohibited by law. Therefore, there is no one to powder brains from screens or radio 24/7 about the line of government / president / congress. Silence!!! drinks

                    But then there is the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), yes, it’s independent, but at least five of its members are personally elected by the president (and confirmed by the Senate), and this commission is in charge of controlling the media. Correct if I misunderstand something.
                    Judging by what the press writes, pensions in America average $ 1340 per month. In Russia, this is impressive, but tell me frankly - for living there, it is scanty money. Therefore, with great difficulty I can imagine 3 holidays a year for 20-30 days. Well, unrealistically simple).
                    You arrived there 30 years ago. Yes, there were other times. Here, we bought a house. Tell me, how much is your home today? And how many (even working) can TODAY afford to buy it?
                    I would also like to hear about your health insurance. How often you can afford medical care / examination, because you are no longer young, and the sores do not diminish over the years - I know for myself.
                    But caught one moment you said:

                    ... Everyone with whom we arrived at the same time (or not at the same time) got on their feet. And well worth it. Need patience / work / brains ..

                    I am impressed that all the “people who came from here” are patient, hardworking, able to get on their feet, and most importantly - have brains. I thought that was exactly what you wanted to emphasize? Because looking at the myriad hordes of American beggars filling the streets of all major American cities without exception, one hardly believes that this is where the “forge of talents” is located)
                    I understand that you, apparently, have a good reason to be proud of your personal successes. But I don’t understand why, with such servile fury, you are upholding this (under) state, which, unlike Russia (the USSR), has personally given you nothing. You yourself write:

                    ... Did the state help? Yes, in the sense that he partially wrote off taxes if he spent $$$ on his training ..

                    - and it's all???)
                    But:

                    ... Worked 60 hours a week for $ 6 per hour ....

                    This is more like a confession, rather than “..live well ..”. I foresee your indignation, you already somehow blamed my weak knowledge of the Russian language ..

                    ... Absolutely not!
                    My English is much better, then your Russian - you make too many mistakes. Shame on you !!! ..

                    So, in principle, I have nothing to be ashamed of, I am not a Russian (although I was born in Russia). So here. Although I no longer live in Russia, my conscience would simply never allow me to pour dirt on the country where I was born. Despite the fact that I love and am proud of the country where I live now. And believe me, this country is much cooler than your “big American garbage dump”. I visited you. And for work, and so. You have nothing to be proud of there.

              My friend lives in the USA, we lived together in Russia in Tomsk. Families moved to Germany, he left for the USA in 2004. There is more freedom and less paperwork. It’s easier to make money. The disadvantage is expensive medicine.

            Yes, you will not tell me who was born and raised in Siberia, nothing terrible.
            But I can you:

            El Paso, Texas. The poverty rate is 25%. ...
            St. Louis, Missouri. The poverty rate is 26%. ...
            Newark, New Jersey. The poverty level is 26.1%. ..

            - this is Wikipedia data.
            I’ll tell you from myself. Every 6 (think about it!) Resident of the United States does not have basic health insurance. And this is worse than any poverty. This is the bottom!

              I was born and raised in the Tomsk region and until 2002 I lived in Tomsk. In 2019, I was in Tomsk, my back was ill, I went to a doctor for a fee. Everything is fast. MRI the next day, procedures at a convenient time. Lepota. For everything I paid a little more than 300 euros. I had travel insurance, they returned everything to me at home. But what’s bad - sitting in the waiting room, a woman (with medical insurance) told me that the MRI was waiting for 7 MONTHS. This is a mockery of people. I am not going to argue where is better. Think about it yourself - in the Gazprom report for each Russian sold 20000000 rubles. Gas. And they cannot provide a normal life for the people. Sechin "overslept" how much in Venezuela? I decided to compete with the Arabs. At whose expense? They throw money away. Where is Skolkovo with a tablet for each student developed cell phones? Economy light bulbs, in which the economy is worse than Chinese, and the price is three times higher. And the friends of Putin built the Crimean bridge 82% more than the Germans thought. That's what you need to do something with, and not judge on Wikipedia, where is better.

                - like everything else - it's all emotions).
                What does the gas / Russian have to do with it? Gas is produced by gas producers, sold, and paid taxes to the state. The state distributes taxes for various needs. A lot goes to protect the state. borders. And their length in Russia is more than 60 thousand km. If there were fewer people in the world who wanted to creep on its territory (see resources), then Russia would have left more funds for everything else. But for now, like this. By the way, the creation of new types of weapons for some time stopped the ardor of “those who want to fight,” but they try to spoil it in a different way. Here are the sanctions for this, and not only that. Fifth columns are created from such. like you, now) Well, by the way.
                Regarding the MRI lines, I believe. In England or Denmark, the queues are no less).

                  If I'm not mistaken, then basically Gazprom is a state-owned enterprise. Ie the proceeds go to the state treasury.
                  Regarding the fifth column, everything can be attributed to it. As Putin said at the beginning of the sanctions, this is a chance to develop domestic production. Sanctions are already the sixth year, probably, everything has already learned to produce? In general, where did the Russian media get this article? Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Süddeutsche Zeitung, Frankfurter Rundschau Die Welt Bild - these newspapers do not. In others, such as Deutsch Welle or another such level, it is not worth reading. After all, AIDS-info is also written a lot. I don’t need to answer. Ask yourself the question - do people live with dignity? The country has everything, the people have ....

                    So simple, you can sit, and it is unclear why "clever" in Russian forums. If you do not consider yourself a “column,” then why are you writing all this here? What drives you?

                    ... Gazprom is a state-owned enterprise. Ie the proceeds go to the state treasury ..

                    Yes, 50% of the shares are owned by the state. So what?
                    About a decent life. I think people live differently. As, however, in any other country. Of course, Russia has a lot to strive for, but it does.

                    ... As Putin said at the beginning of the sanctions, this is a chance to develop domestic production.
                    Sanctions are already the sixth year, probably, everything has already learned to produce? ..

                    Something already learned, something else in the process.

                      What? What did you develop in Skolkovo? Middle class - 70%, average salary of 170000 - is that good? AvtoVAZ 80% of the components are imported, in 2015 it was 40%. More than half of the medicines are made from Chinese raw materials. Agriculture? The import of palm oil into Russia began to grow rapidly as soon as we headed for import substitution and the rejection of European milk and other products. From 2013 to 2018, palm oil imports grew by more than 42%. For the five months of 2019, 409,9 thousand tons of “palm trees” were imported. Replaced milk and cheese.
                      About the "new weapons." All this was developed in the USSR.

                        Well, Platoshkin sometimes says adequate things, who argues with this. But it’s one thing to speak beautifully to the public (without delving into the nuances and assuming responsibility for it), and it’s another to be the president of a huge country and make responsible decisions (while owning more complete information than “some populists”).

                I wanted to note in defense of the Crimean bridge - the cost is 82% overpriced, this is an unfounded charge. The construction went according to the developed estimates for FER. Options for those. the decisions were different - both cheaper and more expensive. The one selected is selected (I will not consider the rationale here ....) - optimal. Cost exceeded only with your words.
                Possible rise in price, if any, was only due to the sanctions of the same Germans. They clamped their technology, well, so mastered their own.
                I didn’t understand about Arabs at all - they listened and prematurely reduced production (i.e., Sechin did well).
                As for the light bulbs, you're lying (probably for a red word), but as for the tablet and cell phones - yes. I agree. There Chubais unsinkable freaks.
                I also wanted a pebble in your garden:
                Pay attention to the construction of the airport in Berlin .. - the estimate has already been exceeded by 8 times, and the terms are about the same (write your media).
                Amerans sawing - ours did not dream. Either the miracle will be bogged down at the price of an aircraft carrier (they didn’t achieve the goal, but they drank the money), then the coastal conquest ship (USS at the price of a destroyer, such as our admiral series frigate (or even RTOs) - only without missiles and cannons) the money was spent, abandoned the project ... At whose expense?
                That's what you need to do something with, and not judge on Wikipedia, where is better.

                Yes, and these are your Nobel laureates - after all, the SGA themselves appoint them, just like at the Olympic Games this WADA - if it's an American, you can even with heroin, if Russian - the test tube is scratched. Or no explanation at all ...

                  According to reviews, the quality is equal.
                  Regarding the lamps of their development. This is from the program "Besogon" by Nikita Mikhalkov.
                  Regarding Sechin - well done. A couple of months ago I refueled 1.18. currently 1.02. Trump gave a decree to the Arabs.
                  An additional 212 million euros are needed at the Berlin-Brandenburg Airport terminal (BER), another 60 million is needed for the expansion program. Total expenses reached 2,6 billion instead of the initial billion.

                  About Sechin.

                  In an interview with RBC, Leonid Fedun said that a new OPEC + deal was necessary, but it also had negative aspects for Russia. “I would give an example of the Brest Peace when the Bolsheviks in 1918 were forced to make a deal with Germany for various reasons, which was humiliating and difficult,” said the co-owner of LUKOIL. At the same time, Fedun pointed out that without a deal, oil demand would be so low that oil storage facilities around the world would be completely full in 40-45 days, and Russia would have to suspend oil production in a month and sell it at the lowest price.

                    Judging by the above (the cartoon I didn’t look), Sechin did everything right - because there is nothing to wait for the SGA to slowly squeeze the entire oil market. And Sechin put ALL in one boat. For this, respect to him.

                      Initially, who was the first to jump out of the boat? Of course, prices due to the epidemic would go down, but not so much. And count, the price has fallen and volumes need to be reduced for a long time (July futures $ 26.28. How much has Russia lost? Who is to blame?

                        Interestingly, in the light of current events, you have not changed your opinion?
                        Just in case, this is my point of view: the Saudis decided to force Russia to lower production volumes, without lowering its own. This was done due to the fact that the SGA increased their shale, and they needed an additional market for growth. Here are the Saudis and muddied the intrigue.
                        BUT Sechin insidiously (you think so) refused to succumb to blackmail and comply with the demand of the Saudis. Well, then the sheikhs seemed to have blown away and they decided to put pressure on low prices for Russia (as it once was on the USSR). But they didn’t succeed, overstrained. Yes, they also hurt the shales of the SGA. And for this, Trump has promised to punish the Saudis - they say, I’ll remove my roof and Emen and Iran will tear you. Now the Saudis are now bustling, they began to reduce emergency production, even in excess of the promised ... - i.e. reduce market overstock. And what happened..? - SGA shales immediately announced the defrosting of wells.
                        And if Russia had obeyed the blackmail, the SGA would have taken the vacant place, then again and again. Then Russia would have lost everything. Then the question is - Who is to blame?

                        In general, Alex, you think clearly on agitation, listen to someone’s conclusions, not paying attention to the facts. Do not try to analyze, give an assessment too quickly.
                        Excuse me...

                  Regarding Chubais, he will always be weird. He is not drowning.

                  Former head of the presidential administration of the time of Boris Yeltsin, Valentin Yumashev, said that he did not find Vladimir Putin as a candidate for the successor to President Boris Yeltsin. According to him, Anatoly Chubais and Alexei Kudrin did this. Yumashev told about this in an interview with the Rain channel.

                  As for the airport, you probably confused with the construction in Sochi.



                  But the most interesting thing, knowing this, Putin gives Bilalov the opportunity to leave the country. After all, there were a bunch of examples - Luzhkov, Minister of Agriculture Elena Skrynnik.

                    - I agree. This is already a proven fact.
                    Regarding the airport - see here:

                    https://www.dw.com/ru/берлинский-аэропорт-долгострой-откроют-в-октябре-2020-года/a-41820040

                    DW in 2017 writes: the estimate increased from 2 to 6,5 billion euros, the commissioning was postponed from 2011 to 2020 (at the same time, taxpayers cost € 1 million each day the airport is idle). Such weak Sochi are happening there, but you don’t want to notice this. See, as they say, only in the eyes of others.
                    Regarding the Santa Barbara that you described (and even a link to such an impolite media as Rain) with successors and relatives ... - who found whom, who said something, what Putin gave to whom ... who held a candle ...

                      In general, the old airport should have been restored for 1 billion. This was an initial project. Then they began to expand the terminals. They began to build new road terminals.
                      The fact is that the money was not stolen, it was received by all the hard workers, and not a handful. Someone fled to England, no. This is about in someone else's eye.
                      Perhaps you think that I want to boast that I live here. You are mistaken, no. I don’t like everything. But let Merkel reset her deadlines and continue to work. The main thing is that GDP is growing, there is work, with a decent salary. I want people in Russia to understand that life can be better. By changing the power of thieves and oligarchs. If I reach at least one Russian, I will consider that I spent time not in vain.
                      Regarding Putin, Yumashev said, anyway, which media published this.

                        So, in Sochi, roads and utilities, and not just the buildings themselves, were also included in the budget. You don’t see it there, but in your case you immediately noticed ...

                        Your thieves (and especially in the SGA) are no less than in Russia. Only our thieves flee to England, because she gladly accepts them and does not give out what characterizes her accordingly (after all, they plundered the whole world for 500 years and exported what they got to themselves - the habit remained). Your “theft” has been renamed to “lobbying” (I don’t presume to argue for Germany, but it’s exactly what it is called by your landlord - SGA).
                        I draw your attention to the fact that during the construction of the Crimean bridge the facts of theft were not revealed, but you are only interested in the negative.

                        Merkel leads as many terms as she was chosen by the German people. So let him lead, this is called democracy — I want exactly the same for Russia.

                        Russia's GDP is under the pressure of sanctions and, I draw your attention, from sanctions united europe and the Anglo-Saxon world. Why? Because the basic principle voiced by the Anglo-Saxons is "divide and conquer." Germany has been under occupation for 75 years and is fulfilling the will of the SGA. Therefore, they allow her to trade and develop the economy. If he tries to regain some sovereignty, then we’ll talk about your GDP.

                        About the "power of thieves and oligarchs" - will you voice this, please, about the SGA, or is it not customary to criticize them? And there it is precisely this, and in the open, without hiding it happens.
                        And the question is, do you consider Putin a bad guy, and why should I believe you? You read somewhere somewhere and made up your mind. I do not think so. I have my own opinion: I remember 2000 well, Russia was on the verge of collapse - the economy was destroyed, wages were delayed for 6-8 or more months, poverty and devastation were around, the state had huge external debts, the oligarchs were in power (in fact, ordinary bandits). At the same time, the Yeltsin State Administration and Europe are praised, they say, they say, you are doing everything right. And then Putin comes in - and I myself saw how a year later positive changes had begun on all the points mentioned above. After about five years, all external debts were closed, the economy began to grow actively, and accordingly, wages went up (you didn’t find this already, you left earlier). But even in those years, Russian business was not allowed in Europe and the SGA, thus blocking its development for Russia.
                        And when you held the Sochi Olympics, which not only showed the highest achievements in sports, but also in the preparation of infrastructure, hospitality - you (here I have the so-called "West" - that is, the SGA and its vassals) could not endure . Active mud-spraying of Russian sport was started, everything related to Sochi, and then personally to Putin and Russia as a whole. After all, he dared to violate the plans of the SGA - he did not ruin the country, did not subordinate it to external management, and even held the Olympics.
                        Well, then went the pressure "in an adult way." Either one tanned guy will “tear to shreds” the economy, then he will declare it a gas station. That SSA will openly announce that they carried out a coup in a famous country for 5 yards (to destabilize the situation in Russia) ... - in general, the “West” needs an enemy to justify its expansionist intentions.
                        So look at the situation through the prism of the events described above, impartially, only relying on facts (the Internet will provide them to you). Just do not look at anyone's conclusions, but the facts - dates, numbers, events. And then you will have a different point of view.
                        And if I reach at least one European (American ...), I will assume that I spent time not in vain.
                        Regarding Putin, I rely on facts, and you gossip.

            ... They have 383 Nobel laureates, that says it all ..

            The Swedish banker Jacob Wallenberg, who took control of the fund’s finances in 1951, violated the dead will of Nobel. Using ties in the government, he agreed to pay off the bonds, and invested cash in the American economy. In the US, since Wallenberg simultaneously agreed with the US Treasury that his investment would be exempt from taxes in America. Since then, American scientists for some reason are very lucky for the Nobel Prizes.

      Dear Bulanov, you have perfectly painted everything regarding the actions of a SERIOUS and independent state. But "RK" ("Capitalist Russia") is not such a state, unfortunately. This is a dependent, weak semi-colony. Or “Rusland’s department” of TNC “Global Intelligence” ... This “education” pays globalists 70 rubles for a “green candy wrapper”, 80 - for a fashionable European “color candy wrapper.” The Nazi occupiers - those still geeks, during the Second World War for your brand TOTAL 10 Soviet rubles. So draw conclusions.
      It is necessary to immediately curtail this stupid "project" - the Republic of Kazakhstan. Only SOCIALISM, only concern for all social groups (classes). Form of government? Only MONARCHY. No presidents of the “world behind the scenes” peoples of Russia are needed! People’s emperor, elected on an alternative basis, for example, for 20 years. A calm, balanced discussion of candidatures for, for example, a year. TV debates and all-Russian voting. "The Orthodox Empire of the Russian people and other indigenous peoples of Russia ..." - sounds?
      ... The "filthy broom" of all these Russian-speaking "oligarchs" and their lackeys. Guidance ORDER in the country.

    A blow to our country was inflicted in 1991-93, through the establishment of oligarchic capitalism. Compared to this, the current Dee Welt attacks are just a sneeze. Another thing is that the wimp and whose is deadly. Since 1993, the country has been “on hold” after a painful reception (it will sometimes weaken, then it will be squeezed), with a gradual emasculation of the social network and a goofy monetary management. The interaction "state - citizens" tends to zero, the state wants to interact only with business, and only with large, oligarchic ones - there is "its own company" and they are only interested in their own affairs.

    There were no blows and never will be. Translation error, I think these are rather questions:
    1. Why is Zelensky in Kiev afraid to speak Russian?
    2. Why is Syria not properly armed? Why has Russia still not given up greenery? And that is characteristic, everything was promised earlier, no one pulled the tongue. Liberalism and democracy are disgusting, but can be tolerated. A lie - this is exactly an excess.

      Why should Zelensky speak Russian? What is the state language in Ukraine?
      What does Syria have to do with it? An article on the situation in Russia. Rejection of the dollar - who needs rubles? And how officials and oligarchs, without paying a tax on the export of cash, will be without a dollar?

        70% of ethnic Russians live in Ukraine. Why should I impose some surzhik on them (I don’t turn my tongue to name the language). In Ukraine, it has always been the main language, and should remain - Russian, as a second - it is possible Polish (their former territories).

    The main thing in this country is that you make all decisions yourself, independently (work / housing / study), and you don’t depend on the state, you don’t ask for anything and you don’t expect any handouts from him

    At the end of 2012, 309 million 467 thousand people lived in the United States, of which 35,4% were in families receiving federal social benefits, Cybercast News Service reports. If we add to them members of the free medical care program, veterans and the unemployed receiving non-state financial benefits and a number of other benefits, the total number of Americans supported by social benefits and benefits by the end of 2012 amounted to 153 million 323 thousand people, or 49,5% of the population USA.

    At whose expense is the banquet? Why the hell are you promoting your lifestyle here? You ran away 30 years ago, well, sit there, do not shine. Why are you smearing snot? Is it scary that the answer will fly for the arrogant tricks of your government? Remember, no one here will pity you, just like your ghouls do not spare anyone IMHO.

    I think the story of the fall in oil prices is completely directed by Western financial clans that control the international financial and stock markets, as well as the issue of the dollar. Most likely, there is a behind-the-scenes agreement with the Saudis on free compensation for their losses from falling oil prices in exchange for a sharp increase in production. Moreover, the bulk of the cheaper oil will be pumped into American storage facilities, which minimizes the emerging benefits to China’s main oil consumer. The purpose of this combination is to deprive Russia of financial revenues and provoke an internal political crisis in the country, in the wake of which it will eliminate Putin and his supporters from power. Events around Nord Stream-2 fit into the general scenario described above. Putin has given the initiative to the enemy and is now in a dead defense. If in the near future he does not take vigorous measures, Russia will lose this game with the most serious consequences.
