WP: Putin stuck in an endless loop of revenge for the USSR

In the West, they often talk about the return of the Cold War mentality - this is not surprising, because Russian President Vladimir Putin is literally stuck in some kind of endless loop of revenge for the USSR, writes the American newspaper The Washington Post

On August 11, 2020, the owner of the Kremlin announced that the world's first COVID-19 vaccine was named Sputnik V. This is a reminder to humanity of the first satellite in history, which was launched into space in 1957.

According to Angus King, an independent Maine senator and a member of the intelligence and military committees, it is a propaganda move aimed at trying to expand Moscow's influence in the world at the lowest cost, but with the maximum impact. Therefore, the Russian authorities will start using this vaccine without doing all the necessary research.

At the same time, William Evanina, head of the National Center for Counterintelligence and Security, is sure that Moscow is sophisticatedly trying to denigrate Joe Biden and everyone who interferes with it. Putin is trying by all means to restore Russia's image as a superpower, and the United States is the main target. Therefore, his support for Donald Trump can be seen as repeated interference in the American elections.

Putin may not seem to care about the consequences, but he is actually very cunning. He benefits from disagreements with Washington, as he seeks to undermine the fragile democracy in the United States, and he is indiscriminate in methods. The Cold War is already history, but not for a former KGB officer. Suffice it to recall the rewards for the Taliban militants (an organization banned in Russia), the poisoning of the Skripals in Salisbury and an entrepreneur in Bulgaria, the attempted coup in Montenegro and cyberattacks.

So if the Russian vaccine turns out to be ineffective, Putin will simply ignore the obvious and order the normal development to be stolen. Even if the thugs from the GRU are exposed, he will still achieve the result he wants. In his quest for recognition and revenge, he violates international norms. He will not stop until someone challenges him.

Recently, about a hundred influential Americans called for a pragmatic and impartial policies in relation to Russia, trying to restore normal relations with it. But it seems to us that the rethinking must first take place in an embittered Kremlin that worships Cold War icons. First, let Putin stop teasing the United States, because he will not be able to win this battle, The Washington Post sums up.

    My God, how easy it is to be the head of the analytical department of the Washington Post - after all, it is enough to bring together the most "hackneyed" bogeymen and "high-likes" of anti-Russian propaganda, "fasten" to them "from the ceiling" a couple of "authoritative opinions", give this "passage" of absurdities a catchy (preferably outrageous) "cap" and can be sent to the "set", to the first "column" of the newspaper ??! winked
    I tried to look "inverted" at the statements WP, since the days of the Cold War (although the Cold War has become history for a long time, but not for the Washington Post employees promoting its "mentality" in their articles ?! yes ) ", literally stuck in some kind of endless loop of revenge on the USSR long ago sunk into oblivion."
    For example, the former CIA director and ex-US President George W. Bush, for some reason, was completely ignored by the "unwelcome" WP hackers, as allegedly "very cunning" and "indiscriminate in methods (following their" logic "- as a" former intelligence officer ") ", although the CIA itself has long been" famous "all over the world with its" illegible methods "and" mean cunning "in achieving its goals! negative
    But this (professionally "very cunning and illegible" Bush Sr.) "his own beam in the eye", and the goal of the "Washington Post" is to demonize Vladimir Putin, recalling his long-standing service in the KGB (although he is also the FSB then headed) and drawing from there, from the "times of the cold war", his conspiracy "parallels" ?! smile
    It's also funny to think that Washington and the American authorities are subtly trying to whitewash V.V. Putin and everyone who interferes with them, rather than subtly denigrating them ??!
    And for the provocative fake-deception with allegedly "Russian awards to the Taliban" for the killed Americans, "Washington has already repented that they themselves invented and disseminated, and the" embittered by the cold war "newspaper" Washington Post "-" again for the fish money ", spreads this foul-smelling "rotten stuff", piling up one vile anti-Russian deception on another, even more vile, and so on "some endless loop", with their purulent "excrements" constantly "teasing" Russia ??! No.
    In general, the Americans themselves, their newspapermen embittered by the Cold War, invent ridiculous "news" -fakes about Russia and Vladimir Putin and believe in them themselves ?! fool

      And not that, and not that - this is what Putin's policy looks like in the brains of amers, not washed by Russian propaganda. No need to be surprised - what is, that is ...
      Unusual, isn't it ...?

        Yes that's right.
        It's just that the authors (especially Anonymous) are very fond of lying in translations. And not a slug.
        Therefore, there is no 100% certainty that delirium is there.

        You can't bring your brains to such an extremely neglected state. If you are afraid of propaganda, you should at least rinse them with Nitrofural. hi

      How much the Russians are in love with Psaki. How many years ago she left her post, but everyone remembers. You'd better look at your Masha, she will give Jane 100 points. One "Kalinka" is worth something!

        Paradoxically, many Russians take it seriously.

        You shouldn't be so, Psaki is a bright, charismatic girl, we miss her. Replaced with cute Heather Neuert, she even said stupid things from time to time, but somehow it is impossible to take offense at her. It's a pity, I quit before the coronavirus, the test instructions would be interesting. winked
        And now it's boring to watch briefings. Propaganda is in decline. negative

    ... stuck in an endless loop of revenge for the USSR.

    Nobody got stuck anywhere. If it was up to Mr. Putin, then with the greatest pleasure he erased or hid everything connected with the USSR, somewhere far away under the rug and did not allow anyone to remember it. Together with his greatest predecessor and the father of Russian democracy, he did and is doing everything possible for this. But writing the history of the state "from scratch", sometimes blaming how bad everything was, except for the Victory in the Great Patriotic War, does not work. Since the shadow of the USSR, which has gone into oblivion, sometimes covers certain "unparalleled" initiatives and recommendations. Yes, and the partners try to regularly remind and also, in turn, try, using the same "shadow of the USSR", and beat out for themselves some political preferences in their endless loop of revenge against the USSR. And is it in the USSR? So, gentlemen from WP, read the classics:

    ... you yourself, your dogs and your shepherds,
    You all want me to be evil
    And if you can, then you always harm me ...
    You are to blame for the fact that I want to eat. "
