"Putin may surprise": the West is expecting another adventure from the Russian president


While the world's attention is now focused on the relationship between the US and China, as well as on domestic issues, the real surprise in the coming months can be expected from Russian leader Vladimir Putin. Experts of the CNBS TV channel are talking about this.


This forecast is due to the previous actions of the Russian leader, when he strengthened his position with the help of foreign policy adventures - this was the case in 2014 during the annexation of Crimea by Russia, and in 2015 when he intervened in Syrian affairs. Something similar could happen this time. Right now, the Russian president is doing everything to modernize the country's military forces, including achievements in the field of hypersound. So, apparently, the Russian Federation has already tested anti-satellite space weapons.

At the same time economy the country continues to be weak. According to World Bank forecasts, Russian GDP will decline by 6 percent this year, while about 12 percent of the Russian population lives below the poverty line.

Now great opportunities are opening up for Putin, and due to the fact that the United States is losing its former greatness in the international arena - his colleague Donald Trump is concerned about the rampant coronavirus, interracial problems within America, the economic downturn and the upcoming elections, which still need to try to win.

In addition, recently, the European allies of the United States have begun to doubt the reliability of Washington, and Russia can take advantage of this and become a more visible international player.

- believes the expert on the Russian Federation Angela Stent.

According to Janusz Bugayski from the Center for the Analysis of European policyVladimir Putin can use the unrest in Belarus and the pre-election situation in this country - a very opportune moment for the possible absorption of Minsk by Moscow.

In short, many experts believe that Putin may surprise the West with some new adventure before the end of this summer. The Russian leader generally likes to surprise, as can be seen from the hastily organized constitutional referendum by the authorities.

If there is a surprise, then the decision will be made personally by Putin

- believes CNBS.

    This is evident from the hastily organized constitutional referendum by the authorities.

    The fact that the collapse of the USSR was hastily organized in spite of the results of the all-Union referendum for the preservation of the USSR, apparently, these "experts" do not care? Does the attempt to implement the results of this referendum bother these "experts" very much? What kind of democrats are they after that? These are not experts, but some kind of fascists ...

      ... the collapse of the USSR was hastily organized ...

      It was not organized at all. They tore everywhere for the living, regardless of history or their own citizens and compatriots. The ghoul Boris Nikolaich and his fellow rogues were eager to feel the fullness of power and get unlimited access to the "bubble" and resources. Managed! If organized in a real way, many problems would have been avoided, and the process would not have been fast. So a couple of years would have passed, and then you see, the padishah would have died and everything would have settled down. But no, not dead, an infection.

      a hastily organized constitutional referendum by the authorities.

      Come on, the authorities have laid out so many sweets on manual control, it's a sin to call it "hastily". Everything was done according to the recommendations and according to the plan, despite the quarantine.

        hi Of course, it would be nice to do this too - Bush Jr. and Obama deserve it for their mega bloodthirstiness and treachery!
        But, alas, the hat is not according to Senka - Vladimir Putin is not omnipotent (his own bourgeois from the retinue will be scared to death of such dashing courage - to go across the "hegemons", with fright they will immediately "overstep" to their overseas houses and bank bins ", they will betray and sell him with giblets, this has happened before in Russia with too impudent atamans!).
        And the Russian President is faced with more pressing problems - within the Russian Federation and on its borders, requiring an urgent solution ?! winked
        You look, it will surprise you, how surprised you with the Crimea in 2014 ?! wink

          Do not confuse it with the outskirts, with all sorts of Mazepas and other nedoros and podlyakhs.

          You are behind the times. All bins have been confiscated. 15 billion dollars of our Indian oligarchs have poured into the US budget. Deripaska is still trying to get back at least something - but he loses the last: RusAl under American control lost revenue, left for the United States and did not return. Now Deripaska will not be able to pay either the workers' wages or taxes. Good Indian!
          In London, most of the accounts of Russians are blocked indefinitely. Live freely, but look for money wherever you want for a communal apartment and the salary of a concierge and a gardener, you won't get a farthing out of London billions.
          A month ago, a very tiny "oligarch" transferred $ 85 million to New Zealand, but was happy about the shelter for exactly 15 minutes - the US Treasury demanded money for itself. Cyprus is still holding out, but I think not for long.
          So they showed us where they belong. Earn billions and give it to the white sahib. It is useless to rush, the Anglo-Saxons are above the law, they want - they torture, they want - they kill, they want - they take money away. Iran, Venezuela, Russia.

    Are adventures expected from Putin?
    Well, if they are waiting, then we can only assume one thing - the whole idea of ​​arresting our people in Belarus is the work of the West.
    The Chinese do not wait for adventures and the Indians do not wait, and the whole Southeast Asia does not wait, but the West is waiting ...
    We will also wait for what this time, what kind of garbage the West will throw out.

    We are waiting, Vladimir Vladimirovich, something like that, like with Crimea, and let the whole world subside for a while, and then go out into incessant hysteria, to which we are no stranger, because only such an ACT will raise your rating, and this is your the last chance.

      Easy to attach, harder to hold.
      The holder needs to be pumped, but we have everything through one place, it is not clear for whom the state works? In short, we are not the most successful enterprise to absorb others and without raw materials we will die at once.

        Earlier in our country, honor, conscience, dignity, friendship, mutual assistance, love for the Motherland were at the forefront, but now all this has evaporated, and replaced by meanness, theft, cheating, betrayal for the sake of profit, and other disgusting actions, and the main thing is to steal from people for several lives, and there the grass will not grow, this is what Russia stands on now, and the people groan from this.

          What is honor and decency now?
          Successful now or not. And how individuals achieve this, we can see perfectly well. Zhirinovsky just admitted today that our business has a criminal background ... it was about Furgal.

      When the enemy advises -

      a very suitable moment for a possible takeover of Minsk by Moscow

      - so you need to act the other way around ... What a takeover when your own people are outraged by the KAGALA rule in the literal sense of the rule of Russia ... (Positions of crypto-Jews at all higher levels of the Russian Federation and the entire oligarchy). The first to change their government until a destructive revolutionary rearrangement begins ... Enemies and other foreign (more Israeli) trolls are advised to make irreparable mistakes, in this case to annex Belarus ...

    As already got this petty Western trolling. The Russian economy already works like a raw-material cow, boyars famously turn valves, install new units, indulge in "milk" enough, share crumbs with glorifying lackeys and adherents, and the bulk of slaves are kept at the level of near-"subsistence" minimum, - effectively so, in a managerial way! Okay, a cow and a cow, let's say. So they also scoff, they say, "your Putin scares us!" Having fun, you bitches. If they knew how, in turn, socialism scares Putin, they would generally die of invented fears.

      A beggar who has become a rich man, and even with unlimited power, is a terrible thing.
      Even in a nightmare, he cannot imagine life on a Russian pension and medicine near his home. Well, the West needs the image of an enemy to keep its sheep in the stall. That's all geopolitics ...

    Putin can unexpectedly show the "indisputable" advantages of capitalism in general and Russian capitalism in particular, take and raise the standard of living of an ordinary Russian at times, catching up and overtaking the leading countries of the world.
    Otherwise, joining someone is hanging a stone around your neck in a pond where there is no bottom.
  8. Obviously, the CIA has planned an offensive in the Donbas for August with a diversionary strike on Perekop!
