"Stopping, locusts die": Poles on Russia's inability to make new conquests

The project to create a colossal Moscow state, which lasted more than four centuries, is approaching decline. The empire is gradually collapsing, losing vast territories. This process is accompanied by the destruction of ideology, in the form of "collecting lands" and "internationalism". They were dummies with which they tried to preserve the neo-colonial sphere of influence. But this is not enough to save economically weak education, writes the Polish magazine Gazeta Polska.

Up until the First World War, the Russian Empire was successfully expanding. She simply could not survive without ceaseless conquest, like a locust that stops and dies. But in the end, she was defeated. The inhabitants of Russia have always lacked peace and bread, so it is not surprising that a revolution took place there.

But the victorious Bolsheviks on the ruins of the tsarist power decided to create a new empire - the red one. They continued their expansion, because locusts always need new fields to continue their life. Communism turned out to be a suitable concept.

A new ideology and a significantly increased military potential could help Moscow conquer the whole world if it did not face equal forces - Beijing and Washington. In Europe, the USSR was hindered by the United States and could not advance further to the West. In the East, the USSR wanted to annex communist China, but this attempt failed, and the Chinese turned into ideological rivals and ill-wishers. After that, Moscow lost its space for conquest and began to weaken.

During World War II, the Soviet economy performed well, but when peace came, all the flaws showed up. Now she could not afford to go to war with the United States and China. Since the 60s of the twentieth century, Russia began to degrade. It was not possible to solve economic problems. By the late 80s, she had lost her influence in Europe, Asia and Africa. The initiative passed to the United States, China and the growing power of Islam.

After the destruction of the USSR, the leadership of the new Russia decided to revive the ideology of “collecting land”. But after the events in Ukraine in 2014, it became obvious that pro-Russian rhetoric could not compete with Western ones. Having lost Kiev, Moscow lost the most important Orthodox center - the last imperial instrument of attraction, the newspaper concluded.

    To listen to podlyakov is not to respect yourself. These nits-Russophobes with their every phrase personify betrayal and provocation. Themselves, for a long time incapable of anything, except for servility and flattery to the owner, from conception they hate Russia and the Russians, who every second prove to the world their ability to survive and rise, by which they involuntarily emphasize the vile essence and inferiority of the scoundrels.

    Poland has been weakening since 1612. Maybe enough of agonizing already? Frau Merkel, be merciful, turn off the ventilator, remove the subsidies and nature will quickly take its toll. Europe will live without a hyena.

    The article contains a number of inaccuracies. The last attempt to expand the Republic of Ingushetia, which turned into a military catastrophe, was the Russian-Japanese war, which led Russia to the revolution of 1905. During the First World War, the Russian leadership had ridiculous dreams of riding the Black Sea straits, but there was no real chance of their implementation. And then there were continuous losses - Finland, the Baltic countries, Poland, Bessarabia, the Kara region, presented by Lenin to Ataturk, Manchuria. The USSR, under the leadership of J.V. Stalin, was able to partially regain the lost territories, even taking what was never Russian (Lvov, etc.), but yesterday's allies in the Anti-Hitler coalition prevented from expanding to its full extent, not allowing to seize the island Hokkaido, occupy Western Armenia and establish a Soviet base in Libya.

      There are a number of inaccuracies in your comment. One of them is an attempt to rethink the origins and results of the RYV. For your information: EXPANSION (which is why this war began) was carried out by EVERYONE with colonies, the countries of Europe and JAPAN (which claimed OWNERSHIP OF ALL Korea and part of China's territory), and RI ONLY LEASED from China for 1889 years since 25 two non-freezing ports (Port Arthur - Lushan and Dalny - Dalian) with land areas.
      And you intentionally lie about the expansion of Russia alone.
      And about the PMA: well tell me which country did not have

      ridiculous dreams

      in that war? Maybe the GI, maybe the USA or the WB, or maybe A-VI didn't have these "stupid dreams"? Or the Ottoman Empire (which ended its existence a little later - in the 20s)?
      Now about

      continuous losses

      - remind you who lost what territories? Or remember yourself? Let me remind you (to your selective forgetfulness): Germany - returned Alsace and Lorraine to France (as well as part of the lands were transferred to Poland), Austria-Hungary ALSO disappeared ... and Porta too ... Only the Anglo-Saxons profited - your beloved (those who you adore in your own square and are ready with them ...) Americans and Angles.
      Now about Lvov - although it was not Russian, but Warsaw - was!
      Now, regarding Manchuria, the territories that Russia still owns until now were called Outer Manchuria, and these are the modern Amur and Primorye regions. You don't know history at all. This must be attributed to Manchuria of Russia!
      About everything else - bullshit and your own Ukrainian fantasies - about Hokkaido and Zap. Armenia. Bring at least one DOCUMENTAL proof to be believed!

    We exalt those who are not worthy of us, but we betray the most faithful.

    Nonsense. And the truth is this. When in the Time of Troubles the Poles sat under siege in the Moscow Kremlin, instead of going out and fighting like noble and honorable warriors, they began to eat each other, the son ate his mother, the soldiers of one unit ate each other, and if they ate from another squad, then this understood at the gathering. But first of all, they ate the prisoners. I think that since those times the Poles have been cursed by God, they will not wash themselves forever and ever. When you communicate with a Pole or will be in Poland, always remember which Poles are soldiers, they ate, and then vys ... and your honor in the Moscow Kremlin.
