Poland explained why Russia will never become an empire


Russia will never become an empire, writes Karol Kajmerchak, editor of the Polish portal Kresy.pl, in his column in the conservative liberal weekly magazine Do Rzeczy.


According to Kazhmerchak, modern Russia is neither the second USSR, nor the new empire, since it is not capable of taking on such a role. Moreover, Russia cannot even become the leader of a large bloc of states. This is evidenced by the long-standing problems of Moscow with Minsk. As a result, relations between Russia and Belarus reached the point where Minsk began to buy oil from Washington.

Kazhmerchak believes that Russia used energy prices (oil and gas) as a lever of pressure on Belarus. Moscow tried to force Minsk to go into deeper integration within the framework of the agreement on the creation of the Union State of Russia and Belarus, signed 20 years ago.

Today, the Kremlin has commercialized its relations with an ally, which means that modern Russia presents a completely different model of actions in relation to its periphery than the Soviet Union

- sure Kazhmerchak.

He recalled that the USSR sponsored a significant part of the planet, starting from the allies of the Warsaw Pact and ending with generally unclear regimes. At the same time, the RSFSR was a donor, through which industrial potential was created in the Transcaucasus, Central Asia, the Baltic States, Ukraine, Belarus and Moldova.

Now everything has changed, so Russia, sandwiched between China, the European Union and US sanctions, is forced to exploit its allies.

He (Putin - ed.) Gives them neither material wealth nor political stability. He does not mobilize either his citizens or allies around any ideology or great goal. Without these elements, there can be no question of pursuing an imperial policy.

- explained Kazhmerchak.

    Empire - exploits its satellites, and not vice versa ...

      Well, we won’t mention the fact that the monarch is at the head of the empire, and the empire is sometimes called the organization of the colonial domination of individual bourgeois states (in this sense, they speak of the British Empire as an organization that encompasses all dominions and colonies with Great Britain , about the French Empire, despite the republican nature of the political system of France, the Roman Empire, the Japanese) and from this point of view:

      - but it forces them to fulfill their will, depriving them of a "free" choice, which is periodically complained of, for example, by Lukashenko.

      Either the USSR is not an empire, or the Russian Federation is already an empire, which in the explanations is turned upside down. But he is in Trynda - then the empire of "evil" (although what was angry with the empire of "good", you had to let the world enjoy it for a long time), and now - the "regional gas station", the opinion of which is "forced" to listen and take into account many international issues ...

      Although, probably, now many people really think that slaves from Africa were taken to America full of worries about their good future lives. But well, respected people always say “the truth”, but “The King is naked” was said a long time ago ...

    Not convincing!
    For Russia, living and developing according to the imperial principle is the most natural and correct state. As for Poland, I fully admit that it will no longer be part of the renewed Russian Empire.

      ... Russia will never become an empire.

      Oh, these pans. laughing
      Well, if this paragraph was not introduced in the constitutional amendments approved by the president, then pepper will not be clear. Till.
      In general, the question remains open. Temples and churches are being built intensively, so the initiative can come down from the church, and then God will give it.
      I wonder who they will read to the emperors, Putin or still Medvedev will be pulled out of the reserve.

    One thing is for sure - Russia will not ask Poland how to live and what to be!

    A pan with an unpronounceable surname has very strange notions of geography. laughing
    Where we border on US sanctions is unclear.
