"Far from being a superpower": Poles appreciated Russia's naval exercises

The topic of Russian naval exercises in the Caspian Sea, which took place these days against the backdrop of incessant fighting in Nagorno-Karabakh, did not pass by the Polish press. Thus, subsection Wirtualna Polska (wideo.wp.pl) published an extremely neutral message about the event and a short video.

In particular, the text said that three warships of the Caspian Flotilla were involved in the exercises, which worked out countering potential threats from the air.

Nevertheless, a fairly ordinary message caused another surge, alas, not always favorable interest among some readers of the Polish resource.

Some comments are below.

Only Russia can restore order there, otherwise it will be a second Syria

- believes the user Jelonek.

Poland is also able to send its fleet

- a certain BANDYCKA expressed confidence, obviously not very well versed in geography.

Let them fight, and not pretend to help (Armenia) ...

- incites a certain asa.

Poor nations will get poorer. And it is true that only Russians can cool hot heads

- comments dzieckowemgle.

Three ships went out for maneuvers, and we already have a panic. If the US Navy leaves, then this is kind of normal, because they are sailing for their exercises or in order to carry democracy wherever they want

- remarked Marek.

They write how great Russia is. It is enough for Siberia to secede, which it aspired to under Yeltsin, and in the economy Russia will become a third world country

- the commentator with the nickname kjb reflects.

It should be a shame for the Yankees that they cannot enter the Caspian Sea with aircraft carriers carrying "freedom and democracy"

- noticed Twój nick.

Russia will never be a superpower. Missiles, nuclear power and intimidation alone are not enough. Strength is economic and military power that spreads political impact on other countries / regions of the world. Russia knows how to harm, cause conflicts, but it cannot offer anything constructive to others, therefore even Belarus is more attracted to NATO and the EU. A weak economy will prevent it from winning a confrontation with the West, which is why it is hiding behind China. What remains? Propaganda, yes muscle flexing

- issued by wyjaśniam.

Countries such as North Korea, Cuba, Venezuela or Russia should not have nuclear weapons, ballistic missiles, etc. Because these regimes are unpredictable and can attack their neighbors without warning

- expressed the opinion of prawda.

    The Poles have never been distinguished by sober adequate thinking, they imagined that Poland in the military and economic plans can be compared with Russia, as they say, they definitely cannot be denied in arrogance, naivety and stupidity !!!

      they imagined that Poland in military and economic terms can be compared with Russia

      In the military - no, they do not declare anything of the kind. Economically: their specific GDP (including PPP) exceeds ours. With an equal population (they have 4+ times less) - yes, they would have surpassed the economy. (The budget is only 3 times less than ours). NOT having income from the sale of hydrocarbons.
      (They underwent reforms similar to ours in the 90s, on the transition from a planned economy)
      I can assume that they are gradually moving towards the level of 10 million Sweden, whose budget is equal to ours.

        Subtract from the Polish budget the subsidies and loans that they received from the EU all the time, and this is about $ 200 billion, and where will your Poland be, at a time when the Russian Federation was paying more than $ 70 billion of the debts of the former USSR! Change the training manual.

          $ 100 billion of debts in the USSR were collected in 85-91. For food, food purchases. Thanks to the "party" for the collapsed economy. Now we export grain, how much we bought before. (Without State Planning Commission)

          and this is about $ 200 billion


          Here is an interesting comparison of the "huge" subsidies of Poland and a number of our republics.

          Change the training manual.

          GDP data (including PPP) and the ability to compare and perform simple mathematical operations, nothing else is needed. Critical thinking is great, try good

            I read a thoroughly Russophobic and manipulative article, the author, that is, Judas, worked out 30 pieces of silver. He threw a well-known substance on the fan, gave a bunch of numbers, why did he drag Dagestan, apparently the author is also a racist, and beautifully bypassed the issue of subsidies, did not say a word about loans, and without them a good hole is drawn in the balance sheet! So where is the Pshek economic miracle and why are they still convulsing from counter-sanctions? They can't eat their own apples?

              You are looking for reasons to justify the position that the former CMEA countries that have achieved some success and have ceased to be our satellites are now sitting on the necks of the Germans.
              It turns out that they (the Germans) are just giants of industry and finance. smile
              And extremely impractical. Doesn't fit.
              Poland's 2017 budget is $ 90 billion. A lot, for a 30 million country.
              Ok, 7 - subsidies. Remains 83. Is everything else loans?
              And then there is Sweden. 10 million population and a budget of 274 billion. Against our 265. How do you explain this? Who do they sit on?

    It's ridiculous to hear this from the Polish six of the United States, which dreams of Greater Poland, from sea to sea, indulging its imperial ambitions.

      Who among the leading Polish politicians or presidents has announced such aspirations?
      All sorts of marginal people raised the topic of “washing boots in the Atlantic” here too ..

      from the Polish six USA

      Such rhetoric smacks of jealousy that once our satellite is no longer such (and, of course, it cannot stop being a "six").

    What can they think of the Reds? Well, mongrels licking their hands.
    Absolutely nothing of their own, like ukrov.

      I think you are more offended by the fact that they do not "lick our hands" (RF).

      at the first outburst of podlyakia will turn into a deep burning pit

      Do you not understand that in this statement, in fact, you say that only with the use of nuclear weapons (in a country that is a NATO member) is the Russian Federation capable of defeating it?

    What is the matter of the noblemen to the Caspian Sea? Who is hiding from them behind China? Fools, like their masters, did not learn history and geography. You don't have to be a superpower to spread them like slime on the surface of the Earth. A salvo of the same Caspian flotilla is enough. And no one is for them. again will not intercede.

      A salvo of the same Caspian flotilla is enough

      In the conventional version, the salvo of the said flotilla will be too liquid.

      You don't have to be a superpower

      After all, the President said that there is only one superpower - the United States.

      And no one will intercede for them again.

      I assume you're talking about 1939? But we also have no one with whom to conclude a pact on the division of Eastern Europe (and Poland, in particular). Let me also remind you that there was no Organization (NATO) that year. And in Poland there is a small American contingent. (No one will stand up for them either?)
