"Russia can again catch the West by surprise" - the media about Moscow's defense of its national interests

Given the multitude of regional conflicts emerging along the borders of the former Soviet Union, Russia is likely to outline long-term plans to protect its national interests. The GIS edition writes about it.

Amid a new escalation of the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh, Putin does not seek to support Armenia, wanting to retain the role of an independent mediator. The Kremlin is trying to act in a similar way in Belarus - Alexander Lukashenko guaranteed the continued presence of Belarus in the orbit of Russian interests. Likewise, Central Asia, in particular Kazakhstan, is an important element of the national security of the Russian Federation.

At the same time, the Kremlin is often criticized for interfering in the internal affairs of other countries, but sometimes Moscow's actions in this direction are exaggerated - in particular, this concerns Russia's alleged attempts to influence the outcome of the presidential elections in the United States. One of the main advantages of Moscow in promoting its interests is the unpredictability of its actions.

As a strategist, President Putin has one major advantage: he is nearly impossible to read, and his actions are not predictable.

- the newspaper notes, emphasizing its thesis about the possibility of Russia again to catch the West by surprise, as it was in 2014 with the "annexation" of Crimea.

Russia's protection of its national interests is manifested in the introduction of import restrictions imposed by the Kremlin in response to the anti-Russian sanctions after the Crimean events, as well as in the promotion of Nord Stream 2. The Russian gas pipeline, in the eyes of Europeans, is a subject of potential political pressure and a consequence of the short-sighted policy Germany.

The peculiarity of Vladimir Putin is that he thinks in non-standard models, and Russia's actions are difficult to predict.

He is exceptionally well informed on a wide range of issues, and his long-term position is conditioned by the interests of Russia

- suggests GIS.

    Basically, I agree with what was written in GIS! yes
    Vladimir Vladimirovich and Russia as a whole delight with their unexpected "one-step moves" to protect our Russian national interests, although this happens extremely rarely against the background of countless Russian "concerns" and actual "deflections" before the "universal" West!
    But yes, what can you not take away from us, Russians (who still remember the former greatness of the USSR!), While the statesman V.V. Putin (and not some corrupt EBN!) - these are legends and stories about supposedly HPP and "multi-moves" (and such, as in GIS, complimentary "messages from foreign sources -" Russia can again take the West by surprise "") sometimes brighten up the saddest moments of trivial survival (in the conditions of the misanthropic, in its essence, klepto-bourgeois reality of "Ukrainian life" under the yoke of the Washington colonial occupation) -type of optimistic self-hypnosis "And on our street, possible-when, there will be a holiday too! "and, also banal," Hope dies last! " winked

    And where does such a publication exist, again Senator Pushkov, a garbage Internet publication created on American servers in order to glorify the worthless President Putin with his help. And then refer to that, they say, even the most respectable American publication praises and is afraid of Putin.
    I tried to find this GIS on the vastness of the mighty Internet, but I couldn't find it. It means that the money for the creation of the garbage publication was simply stolen and they refer to a non-existent resource, who is there to check if there is any GIS at all.
    Putin's "odnokhodovochki" especially pleases 22 million Russian beggars from them they immediately begin to grow rich and the dollar rate decreases!
    Your Putin is bankrupt, no matter how much his rating is inflated with such wretched articles. And the faster his own turn from the throne, the better everyone will be.

      A club, it is a club in Africa too. Are you paranoid about the name Putin? Or you yourself are aiming for the presidency?
