NI: Russians have not forgotten how Americans invaded Russia 100 years ago

The Russians have a good memory, they did not forget how 100 years ago the US troops invaded Russia, writes the American publication The National Interest.

The analytical magazine notes that the Russians have rich historical experience, so they rightly fear a possible NATO invasion. This is not a phobia, but a reflex that has developed over centuries of communication with Western countries.

So the fears of Russia are not groundless. Over the past centuries, this country has been subjected to a large number of invasions. It was attacked by Sweden, Poland, France, Great Britain, Germany and even the USA. In Russia, they remember very well how the American expeditionary force held a parade in August 1918 in Vladivostok at the headquarters of the Czechoslovak Legion. At that time, a significant part of the former Russian Empire was occupied by the Entente countries.

The US military took an active part in the civil war in Russia. Many naive modern US citizens do not even suspect this. But then Washington sent his soldiers to kill the Bolsheviks in Primorye, and not to confront the Germans in Europe. Therefore, if Russia is outraged by the expansion of NATO, then it has strong arguments not to trust the West.

The publication draws attention to the fact that Russia's anxiety is increasing from year to year, and there is an explanation for this. NATO continues to expand eastward, despite assurances that the Warsaw Pact countries and republics of the former USSR will not become members. Therefore, it is not surprising, "that the Russian bear will sharpen its claws." It’s just that Russia is doing everything possible to prevent another clash. At the same time, the West stubbornly continues to move towards the borders of Russia.

    Everything may end with the division of the United States into world zones of influence. Russian - Alaska, Chinese - California, Indians - Hollywood, Latinos - Texas ...

      In 2008, the United States was already divided. I remember how Russian analysts reasoned seriously about what new states would be called after the collapse of the United States. :)))

        In this you are right. The USA cannot fall apart due to the fact that each state is an independent unit subordinated to a common center and a single law (to which there are individual additions to each state). All separatist movements and conversations are reduced, at most, to withdraw from subordination to the federal center. And in this regard, look at what is happening right now, and not in a hypothetical perspective. The generals refuse to obey, the governors who are much in the least. Talk about the Senate, induce vomiting. America has already collapsed, just not yet understood it. And just as quietly gather back. In the USA, revolution is impossible in principle. Here is her main advantage over everyone. Not the economy, the dollar, the army, or democracy, existing only in the minds of the average man.

    The article is good. But the source - NI - is little known in America. Pushkovsky project.

      Right He is there in the editorial board. And the editor is Dmitry Simes, from the "former". Participates in a polit show like “Nightingale Litter” and that's it. So yes, it can be called American conditionally, but it is a favorite source on VO and Reporter. However, many do not know this and think that it is really something influential in the United States.

    It should be added that the Americans were not only in Primorye, but also in Arkhangelsk, however, Great Britain dominated there.

    NI: Russians have not forgotten how Americans invaded Russia 100 years ago

    The essence of the name is that the Russians are ready to get even for everything that the Americans did to us ...
    - Well, let’s ... get even ... - And then why ... - save up another hundred years of indignation ...
    - So there is no ...- there is no one to acknowledge ...
    - Russia constantly provides its descendants to punish its offenders ...
    - And these descendants cannot punish ...- since they themselves go to serve as offenders of their ancestors ...
    - This is such an eternal "Russian History" ...
    - Therefore, Russian offenders can sleep peacefully; Yes, and for their descendants - they also can not worry ... - and this, too, will not have to answer for their sins ...

    It’s unlikely that a bunch of shit that you piled in a couple of minutes will scratch in a year. One can only be surprised ...

      It is clear, in essence, there is nothing to object to, so at least blurt out something.

    Well you guys do not understand ...
    Then you have the support of the legitimate government in the war against illegal armed groups, etc., the restoration of the monarchy of the very one, the head of which along with the children, the doctor and the servant, the Bolsheviks banged in the basement, and now in power all the same members of the CPSU into the canonized saints .
    But now America was at war with Russia not with the aim of helping the tsarist generals to restore order and prevent the "Brest Peace". And in general, not for Russia and against the USSR, that is, the rebels who came to power by means of an armed rebellion and coup, but on the contrary - against Russia ...
    Well, then you already decide on Assad and Amin, Czechoslovakia.
    Well do not understand already. Previously, with each new government, textbooks were rewritten. And now, at one hundred times, they have already redone everything. Well, at least the Second World War, only a day was postponed. So fast ...

      We wrote a lot, but to the point you didn’t get to it. No. You need to dig deeper. The separatists who escaped from the care of their Little British Majesty are to blame.

    In the European parts of the former Russian Empire and the USSR now occupied by the United States, we, the Russians, were forced (by the "outright" Fashington colonial "New Order" itself!) "Not to forget" about this eternal American bloody treachery!

    It’s strange, but I don’t remember that in Soviet times, propaganda put noodles on the ears of the electorate about the imminent collapse of the United States. Someday, in the distant future, maybe ... - it was, and that, as far as I remember, not in propaganda, but in works of art. But in recent years, as if from a chain broke, talk about "the States is about to fall apart" wave after wave, the previous discussion has not died down, but a new one is already beginning. And the more such conversations, the more any reasonable person has a distrust of them ... In general, it's time to collect all these predictions over the past 20 years, to line up their authors at the sight of television cameras - and according to the tinsel with their own vanging, according to the tinsel! Let them explain how they screwed up their forecasts so badly ...

    The article forgot to add that for the first time in the world, concentration camps for Russian prisoners were used by the United States. And there they killed the Russians for fun.
