Russia will not get “New Yalta”: is “Perestroika 2.0” ahead?


In the political segment of Russian Telegram channels, half-panic sentiments about the consequences of the upcoming victory of Democratic candidate Joe Biden in the upcoming presidential elections in the United States have become popular.


They say that such a victory will lead to the introduction of such tough sanctions (primarily against the financial and oil and gas sectors of the Russian Federation) that the collapse of the Russian economics и political shocks will be inevitable. And with such a catastrophic development of events, the Russian elite will objectively have only two scenarios.

The first one is "Perestroika 2.0" or "Gorbachev 2.0", where you will have to go to at least an honorable surrender. Although the question remains whether the opposite side will offer this very honorable surrender and how it will ultimately differ from unconditional.

The second possible scenario is a remake of December 7, 1941 (Pearl Harbor), only on a more global (and, of course, non-nuclear) scale, in the hope of imposing its own conditions on the Western world by force of arms. Alas, this path is often hinted at by some characters, not only in network analytics, but even on television talk shows. In general, it is clear what this plan of action threatens to turn out in the end.

At the same time, no one offers any third option for an obvious reason: it simply does not exist. It is impossible to continue waging a "cold war" with a GDP volume of the level of tiny South Korea. Even the USSR, which in the 1980s had the second (!) After the United States, the world's economy, and not the twelfth, like the modern Russian Federation, could not do that.

In the near future, the “fork” will obviously consist of the two options described above. However, delaying the decision in favor of one of them will inevitably mean a choice in one direction or another, but on much worse conditions.

The possible arrival of Mr. Biden in the White House is more likely not a cause, but a catalyst in the inevitable processes.

Wrong era?


It is now also clear that a conciliatory article by Russian leader Vladimir Putin on World War II, published in June in the American conservative magazine The National Interest, did not produce the desired result.

Another attempt to remind how the West “forgot” that the conflict essentially began with the Munich Treaty of 1938 and about the role of the USSR in the defeat of Nazism was not very expressive. She did not change anything outside of Russia and did not particularly impress the "home" audience.

The attempt to hint at a certain "summit of Russia, China, France, the United States and Great Britain" that took place was met with ridicule by the foreign press. The olive branch extended from the Kremlin, real or imaginary, was rejected.

The reason for such a strange attitude lies in the obvious fact: the world to which Vladimir Putin is trying to appeal, and which, perhaps, exists in the views of at least part of the Russian elite, no longer exists.

There is neither the spirit of the Elbe, nor the Yalta world order. It did not collapse after Churchill's speech at Fulton, or even with the first salvoes of the Korean War. After all, then, although the former allies found themselves on opposite sides of the Cold War, they still retained respect for each other. Now there is no past respect.

In addition, the world has objectively changed too much since 1945. The grandchildren of the "military generation" are coming to power in many countries today, for whom those events are of more historical than political value. In the end, of the three superpowers that divided the world in Yalta, now only one remains afloat - the United States.

Senseless "reboot"?


Three months ago, some domestic experts declared with inexplicable confidence that the coronavirus would become an analogue of world war to “reset” the global political system. The unnamed purpose of such expert aspirations was the idea that the Russian elite could strip off the stigma of “Cold War losers” and become a participant in a new “concert of powers”.

These hopes were predictably dashed. Why is it expected? It's very simple.

It is no coincidence that the “reset” of the system of international relations occurs after major wars. Based on their results, issues are resolved, first of all, the robbery of the losing parties - in financial and territorial terms, and against this background a new system of relations is being built, which will exist until the next redistribution.

The coronavirus cannot be robbed - it has nothing. No territories, no wealth. There are no markets to divide. This means that those will inevitably appear on the horizon who will be robbed of all of the above by military force.

It must be understood that nuclear arsenals are no longer the deterrent factor that they served thirty or forty years ago. They probably will not be launched by either side for exactly the same reason that in the Second World War they did not risk using poison gases - everyone was afraid of a crushing response in the same way.

It is, of course, too early to talk about war drums. But it is already obvious that no “new Yalta” with Russia, “G2” with China, or even local deals with Iran or North Korea should be expected.

Globalization has made the world small, and the Great Lockdown's economic crisis has made it even smaller. Such conditions are rather conducive not to an absentee "concert of powers", but to a big fight to the bitter end.

    Ha. This was understandable. But the struggle for markets never stopped. And nobody canceled neo-neo-colonialism.
    Everything will be, as before, only harder. Since the oligarch of Russia the fry grew stronger. China too, weapons in generations have risen in price, and all sorts of Malaysia also got rich ...

    this is "Perestroika 2.0" or "Gorbachev 2.0", where you will at least have to go for an honorable surrender.

    I'm just wondering what the author means by surrender? Russia capitulated back in the 90s. Putin now maintains this status quo. The only thing left is the land, the rest is all sold! The West protects Putin. Therefore, he does not pay attention to the lawlessness that he does.

    but to a big fight to the bitter end.

    Putin does not know how to fight. To squeeze out, to seize what is badly lying, to press against lawlessness, as with Grudinin, Platoshkin, Furgal - this is his. And fight? He hasn't spoken honestly to anyone in 20 years, not even in debates. Before the government, he reads from a piece of paper. Nobody takes into account Putin, hence all this Russophobia and insults at all levels. This is for our fans and some even in the eyes ...

    ... but in natural selection,
    Putin is better anyway.

      By your logic, war is a legal method! Hmm. Then be prepared that "legal" methods will be applied to you, personally. And do not resent "lawlessness." However, all methods of capitalism are like that. This is also why your indignation is strange.

    Globalization has made the world small, and the Great Lockdown's economic crisis has made it even smaller. Such conditions are rather conducive not to an absentee "concert of powers", but to a big fight to the bitter end.

    Not only globalization has made the world small, but also the increase in the range of conventional (non-nuclear) weapons. The situation has changed in 70 years, it will not work to sit behind a puddle selling weapons. Nowhere. Absolutely. In addition, no one is going to play by their rules - let us fight you, but mind you - don't touch our territory.
    There is virtually no line between nuclear and conventional conflict. Reactors on aircraft carriers and submarines. What happens if a conventional missile hits one of these ships in Norfolk? Can you imagine the consequences?
    There is no guarantee that the conflict will develop into a nuclear one, no, from a word at all.
    They are not ready for a full-scale conflict, because a positive result is not guaranteed. If things get really bad, they can depict their Pearl Harbor out of desperation. In the meantime, they just have to pretend and puff out their cheeks. That's just not particularly impressive. The Chinese disinfectants entering the Chinese consulate look very symbolic. good Processing the "gadyushnik" will not hurt at all. laughing

    All this is nonsense. North Korea and Cuba, lacking resources, have long lived under sanctions and are continuing their course. And in Cuba, one of the best medicine in the world was also organized. Russia needs to work for the domestic market and produce its main products. Finally, to revive our own seed fund, to produce our own medicines. To restore their forests and scientific potential so that the salary of a scientist is not 14 thousand, but at least 2 times higher. And when the standard of living in Russia becomes much better than that of its neighbors, then the people from the former Soviet Union will be drawn, and possibly together with their land to Russia. If you shout - "everything is gone!" - you can't build anything new. You need to work for your country, and not for a foreign uncle and his banks ...

      You, apparently, have little idea of ​​the life of ordinary citizens of Cuba and the DPRK. I have not been to North Korea - God had mercy, but on the "island of freedom" a few years ago I had a chance to visit and the impressions of the local standard of living are very impressive. In short: the inhabitants of the most depressed regions of the Russian Federation, in comparison with ordinary Cubans, live richly and happily. So don't take this development model as a model.

      At the end of 2019, the gross national income per capita in the Russian Federation was USD 10,230, in Estonia - 20,970, in Lithuania - 17,350. So, in the foreseeable future, the Russians have no chance to catch up and overtake even the Balts in this indicator ...

        You, citizen Bindyuzhnik, are you kidding, or don't you understand Russian? Well I write that "North Korea and Cuba, without resources ..". - And Russia has a huge amount of resources! And with these resources, only those who cannot do anything, or who are not allowed to make the country prosperous, can whine. There were always enough craftsmen in Russia! And if someone does not give, then these citizens should be identified and presented to the people! Someone else will not build a country for us, we ourselves need to work and demand that money not go over the hill, but invested in production in Russia! Let bread, meat, a car, or a TV set be a little more expensive than abroad, but it will be ours, a national product, for which our citizen will receive a salary, and not a foreign one. Develop healthy protectionism!

          What is the significance of Russia's huge resources if this circumstance has not yet positively affected the real standard of living of ordinary citizens of the Russian Federation? If this continues, then the very same Russian craftsmen of all stripes will continue to leave the edges of their native aspens in search of a better life. Protectionism, alas, will not help ...

        Is it okay that the Russian ruble is simply trite undervalued against the dollar?
        Moreover, according to the parity of its purchasing power, approximately and at least 3 times (!)
        Anyone who knows even a little what economics is, understands what I'm talking about.
        And for the poorly educated: there is such a thing - "Big Mac index" (and this is not a joke).

        This index is convenient because the list of ingredients used to make this hamburger is the same for all countries where McDonald's snacks are present.
        So, in ideal conditions, for the same amount, converted into another currency based on the exchange rate, in any country in the world, you can buy the same amount of goods. As a result, the difference in the cost of a big mac in different countries will show the undervaluation of a particular currency.

        Now it remains to make a simple comparison: in Russia, a big mac costs $ 1,65 (110 rubles), and in the USA - $ 5,58 (373 rubles).

        So clearer?

              Such arguments can only convince the most dense lumpen proletarian from the Russian hinterland. lol Because it is clear to any more or less knowledgeable person that a hamburger in America costs 5,58 USD and what is sold in Russia for 110 rubles, as they once said in our Odessa, "two big differences." hi

                Not convincing)

                Firstly, because the same product is taken for comparison:

                because the list of ingredients this hamburger is made from is the same for all countries where McDonald's snacks are present.

                And this index, although for people like you, was not invented by me. And it reflects reality very accurately.

                Secondly, very few people in the world are interested in what they said “at you” in Odessa. Where is the world, and where is Odessa?)

                And by the way, for the quality and identity of hamburgers (and others)
                McDonald's watches itself. And very carefully. If anything - claims there.

                        Successful people eat, ideally, at home, with their families. I don't mean forced snacks during working hours.

                        I recommend that you continue to refrain from determining the length of my tongue and other unworthy attacks on your opponent. I have no intention of denigrating your country, I am just trying to judge its deeds without the pink glasses of official propaganda. And mine in any case will be "untouched" - I will do my best ...

                        I didn’t run away, but I left completely legally. As for my grandfather, he ended the war as the commander of a tank company in the army of General Rybalko, and my father, having ascribed an extra year and a half to himself, went to the front in incomplete 17 years and served in the regimental intelligence throughout the war. They, like my other relatives in those years, themselves actively fought against the Nazis, it is today in Russia there is an opinion that all the Jews in Tashkent were sitting out.

                        And I knew many Jews. And in childhood, and in the army, and later. And I have friends among them. And from no one have ever heard such nonsense, about oppression, etc. You yourself are looking for some kind of excuse. For what, by the way?

                        So I noticed that you here boast from time to time: "I have 2 higher educations."

                        Am I an ignoramus with two higher educations and knowledge of three languages ​​at the native level? Walk on, you are frankly illiterate.

                        Do you really consider this a pass to smart interlocutors? Or a guarantee of the ability to think?
                        I think that this is not so.
                        After all, you do not even understand that higher education as a degree of study, in itself, can only be one!
                        There can be several diplomas, several specializations, but education is a priori one, and it, this higher education, in itself does not make a person smarter, better, or somehow superior to others.
                        Because Education is just a process of acquiring knowledge.
                        To have an education, and to be educated, this is how they say in your Odessa: two big differences!
                        But education is already the result of a person receiving this education.
                        Conclusion: not every person who was formally able to get an education is in fact educated.
                        If in the process of life a person does not learn to think, if he does not read, is not interested in the meaning, does not try to understand, if he lives only externally - he slips, having gained superficial knowledge, the very meaning of life eludes him.
                        And this is precisely the conclusion that suggests itself, reading your posts, it is not clear for what purpose.

                        No offense, think about it.

                        PS Remember that here many educated people communicate with you, both with "languages" and with diplomas, and most importantly - cultural ones.
                        For the rest, I wish you nothing bad.)

      Actually, I don't understand the other. Why do these "guys" come here at all and throw mud at Russia. They seem to identify themselves with Israel (which, in principle, has quite normal relations with the Russians), but immediately sprinkle openly "maydanut" bile. So who are they all the same?
      If Jews, then why are they playing for the country of victorious Nazism? Or have the Jews suffered from the Nazis a little? Or is it just that these "guys" are not like real Jews: Clever and intelligent? Most likely it is. They even have some proletarian nicknames. And for more, apparently, just the mind was not enough.)
      Or they are still Ukrainians who are embarrassed to identify themselves with their homeland.

      UDE, and these are "professional emigrants" who need to prove (first of all to themselves) that they made the RIGHT CHOICE when they left Russia. We went through this already after the GW 18-20 years of the last century! There, too, emigrants scribbled in the newspapers that they had fled the "Sovdepia" "in time". And they earned their living in third-rate restaurants as waiters or taxi drivers, and their wives (at best) as seamstresses (or even on the panel went out - "it seems like a day to eat hot!"). Although there were those who went to the servants of the Nazis and other MI6 ...

            ........ one citizen lived with us (even during the times of the USSR) with two higher educations ... so for his such education, his wife left him (she could not stand his madness, not only in ordinary life, but also in bed). ...... when he came home from work (it was winter ... and it was getting dark early), there was only a note on the table where everything was popularly painted for him .... he got overwhelmed and he pulled her (she wrote that she left for the regional center - 101 km) ... ran all night - in trousers, a shirt, barefoot ... since then he has only been seen like this (he lived for quite a long time), walked - begged ........
            There is another story (I heard it in the 80s, when I was studying in pedagogy): the young man was very talented - polyglot, 2 higher ... he decided to get one more ... And at the end, something happened in the brain - he went , in general, the head (what was there - history is silent). So he walked around the Soviet - he sang songs (they say he had a good voice) - that is how he lived ..........
            But there are two more definitions for those like you:
            1. The individual is not able to find himself in life. Can ONLY study (unable to work) - "excellent student's syndrome" (or, in other words, "eternal student syndrome") - one of the inferiority complexes.
            2. An individual who considers himself underestimated in a team ... here you can generally write a lot (in the wrong place and at the wrong time).
            By the way! It is the people belonging to category 1 and category 2. - are the environment that supplies the so-called "infantry" (or "torpedoes", in simplified language) to the "non-system". Very well these "infantrymen" were used in the so-called "Maidan", where these "torpedoes" were sent in batches, at the beginning of the riots, under the batons of law enforcement officers who set their brains in the most intelligible way - by "democratizers" ... full - they were thrown into the trash or (most of them) were poured into an atom. The curators of these "maidanov" want to do the same in the Russian Federation .... So far, they manage to localize these (which is not a dirty word - it's just a person's INABILITY to find himself in life and adequately perceive the reality surrounding them). But since there are not so many similar (adult) torpedoes, the organizers of the riots are trying to FREEBY involve children and adolescents who (with rare exceptions) are very susceptible to various temptations and are unable (as well) to adequately understand the complexities of adult life ... .......

    You, apparently, have little idea of ​​the life of ordinary citizens of Cuba and the DPRK.

    What did you want? To drive you under sanctions for 30 years and add a blockade, do you think you will live much better than the Cubans?

    At the end of 2019, the gross national income per capita in the Russian Federation was USD 10,230, in Estonia - 20,970, in Lithuania - 17,350. So, in the foreseeable future, the Russians have no chance to catch up and overtake even the Balts in this indicator ...

    Firstly, it depends on the generosity of the Germans, if the subsidies continue to increase, then, probably, yes, it will be difficult to catch up.
    Secondly, something tells me that you can buy a little more for the same amount in Russia than in the Baltics, the purchasing power is still different.
    And finally, the imbalance between the produced GDP and income is observed, it is necessary to somehow equalize (to make it clearer for you, Israel added to the comparison).

    While the figures for Israel roughly coincide, the Balts' income level lags behind the produced GDP by about 2 times, then in Russia the difference is already 3 times. We are clearly not paid extra. winked
    But this again does not take into account purchasing power parity (PPP). So, about the chances to catch up and overtake .... I would not be so categorical.

    This is what GDP per capita looks like.
    Russia - 30; Latvia - 819,6 32; Lithuania - 986,5; Estonia - 38; Israel - 751,0.

    And so the data on the level of income per capita:
    Russia - 10; Latvia - 230,0 16; Lithuania - 740,0; Estonia - 17; Israel - 350,0.

        Regarding the GDP - it's still how to count! If so, as the Yankees and others like them think, then everything will be fun! All these calculations of GDP, VAT, GVA and other CNS ... You can calculate all this in different ways - whoever benefits from it will count it that way.

        I took the numbers "as not profitable." Oddly enough it turned out, quite curious, suggestive ...
        It turns out that in the Baltics they produce a unit of a product, about half of its cost goes into income, in the USA it is about the same as how much is "produced", so much into income. In Israel, the picture is similar, even for some reason the income is a little more than what was produced what (I do not know why this is so, maybe the data is incorrect, maybe the peculiarities of local accounting, people are talented laughing ). But our state of affairs is rather curious. They produced the goods, the third part goes to income, and 2/3 is not clear where. request This is not a corvee or a quitrent. Even the Baskaks did not collect that much. laughing Maybe I accidentally went offshore and foreign shareholders. belay Isn't it time to go underground? laughing

    You need to work for your country, and not for a foreign uncle and his banks ...

    To clarify a little: EVERYONE should work in his place in good faith (and in the FSB-MVD too) - then foreign threats will not be so dangerous.

    Eco of the author carried. Having listened to Murdoch and Turner's lackeys (misunderstood as journalists), Biden's lackey (misunderstood as Ukrainian) paints an apocalyptic picture of Putin's death throes.
    And the world is simpler to the point of primitivism. Putin and Russia don't need you. Absolutely. We do everything ourselves, what is not enough - we will buy it in China. And if the Great Lord and Liver of Ukraine Biden (the head of the Irish mafia) comes to power in the United States, nothing will change in Russia. We do not need external loans, loans, who need profit, are sorted out like hot cakes (half of Russia's external debt is held by American pension funds - the last hope of American pensioners).
    Biden will bang his retirees? Yes please ... Ditch the trade with Europe? We only profit from this. Valery Leontyev's plywood and foam barracks in Miami will be taken away? This is how much he will save on taxes!

    The author, Zbitnev, managed to confuse and intimidate himself, at the same time to become both Fox Alice and Basilio the cat. There will be neither the first option nor the second. Our economy has adapted to live in a palisade of sanctions. Comparing GDP is bad manners. This and I can do it, and I will draw more. We will simply master what remains of the collapsed West.

    Of course, there will be no "new Yalta", since the banana-eggplant revolution in the United States will prevent this. Also, do not forget that the current 44th President of the United States is the last, in addition, there is another prophecy that a president elected in a year ending in 0 will not live to see the end of his presidential term. Everything converges into one explosive mixture and the new Babylon must necessarily fall.

    Absolutely correct forecast.
    Only here we can talk not about Yalta, but about the mission of General Wolf from one film.
    It's just that too many times there was nothing for it, so the baby was born.
    But this time it was not in vain.
    But this is not the most unpleasant thing, all these biden / embargs, and the most unpleasant thing for the losers is coming from the East.

    And will the Russian Federation want a new Yalta with the Anglo-Saxons, or will they have to sign another document, such as the one signed by the Germans in Berlin in 1945 ... The Anglo-Saxons crossed the road not only to the Russian Federation, but also to China, and the US allies are not important are more like freeloaders. The same Pakistan, after the Yankees stopped feeding him, quickly changed his shoes in the air and went to China ...

    If the author is not aware that the USSR had the third and not the second economy in the world already in the early 80s (after Japan), and taking into account the FRG + GDR - the fourth, what kind of author's "expertise" can we expect in the future?
    Ah, everyone's worried about what will happen when Monsieur Biden walks into the White House? Nothing will happen .... Spell dictate?
