How Russia will tackle its challenges in 2021


So the year 2020 has ended, which brought a huge number of difficulties, but which we, in general, coped with successfully. Well, or were able to avoid the most negative development of events. AND economy sagged not as much as it could, and in terms of external policy the main thing was achieved: Russia did not lose face in the international arena, although the organizers of the Belarusian and Karabakh crises relied on this. But what awaits us in the coming year: the continuation of attacks from all sides, from which we will only fight back? Well, let's think about it.


Deprive the corona virus


No matter who says anything, this task has become one of the main tasks in domestic political life, and will remain so next year, until the coronavirus is finally defeated. This is connected not only with the preservation of the life and health of citizens. The fight against covid has become a test of the viability of our health care system. And, despite the screams of our "all-pervading" people, it is not worth burying domestic medicine.

At the same time, the problems that had accumulated in this industry appeared with renewed vigor. Of course, they are associated not only with the failure of the 90s, but also with the coming to power of "effective managers" like Zurabov, who did about the same thing with our medical care system as Fursenko and Serdyukov did with education and defense. Now we are reaping the fruits of their work, but, in spite of everything, in general, we are coping with the situation. Especially when compared with other countries, except, perhaps, China.

By the way, the stories about the successes of the Celestial Empire in the fight against the new infection should not be given so much importance. Firstly, this is a very closed country, and we know how things are in reality from the words of the Chinese themselves. At first, the whole world was amazed that the incidence rates rose to only more than 80 thousand people, after which they stopped. Like, here's an example of how to deal with epidemics.

And then Beijing released information that only those cases were registered that occurred with obvious symptoms, and this is no more than 20% of the total. Is there any guarantee that in everything else related to the coronavirus, they say "the truth, only the truth and nothing but the truth"? Maybe yes, maybe not.

Domestic health care in 2020 clearly resembles the army in 2008, for which the coronavirus has become something of a war in South Ossetia. And the results, by the way, are similar. That is, on the whole, we managed, of course: we managed to avoid the "Italian" scenario, and we have our own vaccine, however, along the way, many problems emerged, and it is simply impossible to postpone their solution further. They knew about them perfectly well before, but, based on the results of the current pandemic, it becomes obvious that steps are needed that are comparable to the modernization of the army after the end of the Five-Day War. At least I would like to believe it. This is the front on which it is high time to launch a large-scale offensive.

Will we see the promised economic breakthrough?


Even before he was elected to the presidency in 2018, Putin declared that Russia needed a real economic and technological a breakthrough, without which we risk completely lagging behind the world leaders and will never catch up with them. In this he, of course, is right, because the fact that the largest country in the world should correspond to its size both in terms of the economy (hence, the technical level), and in everything else, is clear to literally every inhabitant of our country who is not indifferent to its future ...

An ambitious unified national plan, under which 39 trillion rubles will be allocated for the country's development in three years, should serve as the basis for such a breakthrough, but its implementation may face the same difficulties as the implementation of national projects. The main one is that, following the results of two years, the disbursement of funds within the framework of national projects is somewhere at the level of 50% of the declared amount, and the unspent funds are transferred over and over again to the next year.

This speaks of the inadequate level of competence of our officials, which, of course, is Openel's secret. Therefore, if a breakthrough in this direction is not ensured in the next couple of years, and there are strong doubts about the attainability of such a goal by our current leadership, the task of mastering truly gigantic funds will not be realized.

Reintegration of the post-Soviet space: changing the approach


In general, over the past years, Russia's international position has been strengthening. As a matter of fact, it is for this reason that 2020 brought us many complications in Belarus, Kyrgyzstan and Armenia. Since the strengthening of our country, many people do not like it, and these someone will do anything to stop the growth of the power of the Russian Federation. And, as has been said many times, Transnistria is in danger of becoming the next point of growth of tension. What conclusions follow from all this?

The most obvious of them: it is necessary to change the approach to the use of "soft power" in those countries that we traditionally consider to be the sphere of our exclusive influence. It's about the former Soviet republics. While we hoped that "they will not go anywhere from us," our opponents did not waste time, and actively worked to create loyal groups of influence. And this brought tangible results in the face of the current Ukrainian elites, Pashinyan, Sandu and others.

Russia, having excellent opportunities to promote its "soft power", did not want to use these opportunities. But if our supreme leadership hadn’t “flapped their ears,” we could, for example, really solve the Karabakh problem, without leading to a resumption of hostilities. You can sing as many praises as you like to Putin and Lavrov, who managed to get Pashinyan and Aliyev to sit at the negotiating table, but the Second Karabakh war itself is an obvious result of our previous shortcomings in the foreign policy arena.

From what we now have (not only in Karabakh, but also in Ukraine, Central Asia, and in the same Baltics), it is also time to start drawing conclusions and putting these conclusions into practice. Otherwise, we will continue to solve emerging difficulties manually and will never regain the initiative.

At the same time, no one says that the former republics of the USSR should be returned to a single state, but it is obvious that it is necessary to work with their population, increasing the number of those who sympathize with Russia. The minimum program is to prevent Russophobic regimes from coming to power in them and to limit their influence where they are.

In general, we need economic integration of the CIS countries. It is not for nothing that economists say that a single market of 300 million people, if the states that form it are capable of independently satisfying most of their needs, is very resistant to adverse external conditions. This is the basis of economic stability in Russia and all other CIS countries. It would be nice to clearly convey this idea to them.

What we have as a result


Of course, all of the above does not at all pretend to be complete, but in the coming year, the top priority tasks for Russia will continue to be: a) putting things in order within the country by improving the quality of work of the authorities of all levels and directions (victory over the coronavirus and the restoration of domestic healthcare will be here some of the most noticeable factors), b) the reintegration of the post-Soviet space. How they will be solved, we will soon see with our own eyes.

    How will Russia meet the challenges it faces in 2021?
    This is a rhetorical question, therefore, it does not suggest any answers.
    Not as an answer, but as a short note: "Russia will solve all problems in the same way as it did 1, 2, 5, 10, 25, 100, 300 and 500 years ago."

      Reintegration of the post-Soviet space? And why and who needs it? Only the "post-Soviet space" itself, but not Russia! The history of the late USSR showed very clearly (for the smart ones) that all these associations around Russia are turning only into a way of transferring material, monetary and other resources from it to the "national outskirts". So why?

        To restore face and respect can only be adequately responded to the actions of the West ...

        Can. BUT NOT NECESSARY. Because then the collective decaying "West" will seize numerous accounts of Russian "servants of the people" in banks around the world; the rich real estate of the Russian elite, AlEgarhs and other crooks will also be blocked for an indefinite period. And how to live here ?! Everything that has been acquired by back-breaking labor will fly away under the tail of the dog! Private planes-yachts-islands-lovers-dogs-servants! And the children-grandchildren will return to Russia and go to schools to work for 15-20-25 tyrs per month! Therefore, there is no "adequate response" to the actions of the West. And it never will.

          Shortly before the New Year, the court sentenced the former head of the Klin district of the Moscow region. For 22 years of sitting on the throne of the Klin district, this statesman stole 10 billion rubles (!!!). And if the heads of districts and colonels Zakharchenko, cherkalins in Russia can steal 10-12 billion, then the chiefs of the federal level turn in trillions hidden in offshores and "in the west."
          And only a not very smart person can believe that in such cases Russia will "adequately respond" to someone there. Incredible delirium :))

            I wonder how much "earned" the statesman sitting on the Russian throne for 20 years? Bill Browder estimated Putin's fortune at $ 200 billion. Soviet KGB majors have always been shy. I am disappointed. The oligarchs keep the Head Roof in a black body. Could put a trillion to Putin for old age. There are 200 dollar billionaires in Russia. For 20 years, this is only 250 million a year from the nose. Do not respect the Head Roof.

      The tasks will not be solved in any way. What for? The money for the "elite" from the sale of Russia to Western accounts is flowing like a river. The people are silent, the couch Internet patriots are fighting in patriotic ecstasy .. The former republics of the USSR, one after another, go into the camp of Russia's enemies. For this special thanks to Putin and Lavrov from Western "partners". Thieves fattening up Putin roofing Everything is just wonderful No problems. That would be to find a rejuvenating bull's-eye for Putin to keep the system for 200-300 years. This is the problem.

    How will Russia meet the challenges it faces in 2021? That's how:
    Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said following talks with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu:

    We had a discussion on the Ukrainian crisis. The common position is the need to fulfill all the obligations assumed by the parties in accordance with the Minsk agreements. We consider unacceptable any encouragement of aggressive actions of Ukraine. In this regard, expressed concern over the recent bellicose statements of the Ukrainian leadership

    - the message says. Press service of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. 29.12.2020/XNUMX/XNUMX.

    Happy New Year everyone! It was smooth on paper ...
    I would like to get infected with the author's optimism, but 65+ takes its toll. The lessons of the past must always be remembered.
    25 million new jobs not created, all sorts of optimizations, pension reform that is absolutely unnecessary in the current circumstances, and most importantly, the reshuffling of the deck (dragging one "effective" manager to the place of another) ... and so on confirms my pessimism. I would be very glad if I am seriously mistaken in the activities of the current servants of the people.

      And Happy New Year to you too! Incidentally, I am also not one of the optimists, but one of those who would like to be one. I thought it was noticeable in the text. And, yes, you are right, given the fact how much of what was declared was never done or was not done completely, there are fair doubts that something will change.

      In general, I believe that the current system of public administration is at its maximum potential, and to ensure a breakthrough, deeper changes are needed than the amendments to the Basic Law adopted last year. Although they are correct, they are not sufficient. Of course, exclusively from my point of view.

    The author is a bunch of mixed medicine and health care. These are two different things - in the USSR it was healthcare (what it was at that time), and after the destruction of the Union, it began to transform more and more rapidly into "medicine", which, like everything else in the Russian Federation, they tried to make a "service sector". And who provides "services"? That's right - girls with reduced social responsibility. To transform the Russian Federation into a brothel for the West is the goal of the "great reformers" of Gaidarov's nestlings!
    Until now, we cannot get rid of them completely ...

        Your right to interpret everything that we write here, as well as our right to interpret everything that you write here. We have freedom of expression! And what EXACTLY I mean in the concept of "health care", and what in "medicine" ... You at home there, apparently, have no idea what is going on in the outback. And very interesting things are happening here! For example - the regional center "sucks" all more or less good specialists, leaving the gray mediocrity at the mercy of the population. In this connection, the number of deaths due to the appointment of leks has increased. drugs that are prohibited in the regional center (and in more or less large cities - where they use even more expensive drugs, but do not have severe side effects of use ... for example (again) - the mother-in-law was prescribed a drug for chandrosis (which one - they refused to give information EVEN under the threat of violence against them !!!!!!), after which she died within six months, and during the autopsy they DIDN'T FIND the pancreas and revealed a WHITE LIVER OF A CHRONIC ALCOHOLIC (in a person who could not drink alcohol at all - poisoning in full glory after two glasses ... another example - a nephew often suffered from colds from infancy (he was weak at birth). So he was prescribed GINTOMYCIN, after which he was NON-REVERSIBLE (now he is 22) ... And this is only in my family .........
        Most of the NORMAL service in our regional center is PAYABLE (and this with salary is almost POLOTICALLY - mrot - 11tyrov) ...
        And in the regional center - "sucked" by Moscow - and this is a FACT.
        So where do we have "health care" ???

          This is not why I say that "medicine" and "health care" are synonymous. And I live there just in the outback, in a small city of 35 thousand inhabitants. All these problems are also known to me. My mother died because they could not, or rather, they were in no hurry to diagnose her. And if you would read carefully, I would not say a word about the absence of problems in our medicine.

                      By the way, I apologize for the troll. I made sure that this is not the case. Apparently, isofat is right about the misunderstanding.

                      And I already know about the difference between the concepts. If you are here trying to catch me in a lie, it is in vain. It's just that the journalistic genre implies more colloquial rhetoric than special one. Since the task is to speak in a language understandable to people. I hope you will not argue with the fact that it is in everyday speech that medicine and health care act as synonyms and interchangeable concepts? So I did not dwell on this difference.

                      And the statement that there was health care in the USSR, and medicine in the Russian Federation sounds strange somehow, don't you think? Perhaps because the thought is not expressed clearly enough. This, apparently, is the reason for the misunderstanding.

          Can you clearly say where exactly I, in your opinion, lied? With your-not your quote sorted out. So what's my lie? Is it that I do not agree with the fact that there was healthcare in the USSR, and medicine in today's Russia?

          I wrote that I agree with the meaning that you put into this phrase. With the fact that in comparison with Soviet times, degradation is obvious. If you understand correctly where you are heading.

          But the difference between medicine and healthcare is not that healthcare is when the state really cares about the health of its citizens, and medicine is when it doesn't. I joked about this when I said that the difference between these two terms, you indicated, exists only in your imagination. And you fell into the impulse of the accuser, having set out to simply troll your opponent.

          isofat, by the way, correctly identified the difference between the concepts.

          So what am I "lying again" about, can you say? I really want to know where I gave a blunder, if I did.

            Who have you and what have you given ... mmm ... it's up to you to figure it out. I pointed out to you that THEN isofat and chewed you. But it was BEFORE isofat, that's why I wrote to you "AGAIN" ... It is strange that you did not understand this ...

    In general, as it was and will be.

    In the internet there is a video, as Putin every year with an expression, beautifully, utters the same phrase: "There is no time to swing."
    And all the promised national projects, over 20 years, were blown away and quietly died. The money was spent, no one answered.

      The video has lost its relevance. After the notorious zeroing, the main character of Russian politics can sit on the throne for life, so he has already forgotten about the buildup. Yes, and she has no strength left ... 68 years after all.
      There is a lot to strive for. Examples were shown and shown by the queens of England and Britain:
      Elizabeth I (69 years on the throne), Victoria (63 years on the throne), Elizabeth II (while 68 years old).
      And the aunts did not even know the word "swing".

      Putin, with his "dump in the outhouse" "no time to swing" "May decrees, on which everyone laid down a big pink" is gradually turning into a television showman-jester. His speeches sound beautiful and even funny, but no more. A new generation of politicians Putin, Zelensky, Trump - the show of exchange. After the pension reform and zeroing (Little Johnny was zeroed out), Putin lost the rest of his respect. Political corpse.

    The analytics are extremely superficial. Unprofessional. Dislike.

    Russia has not lost face in the international arena

    The face of the Russian Federation in the international arena is shaped not by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation under the leadership of Lavrov, but by the Western propaganda industry:
    persecution of bulk and chemical attacks, “aggressive” policy, rejection of the treaty on free skies and arms control, including START-3, cyberattacks and espionage against virtually the entire “civilized” world and their vassals, other sins of the Russian Federation for which the “civilized” world has imposed many all kinds of restrictions on the Russian Federation, its enterprises and organizations, public and private individuals.
    It is possible to restore face and respect only by adequately responding to the actions of the West: through the closure of embassies or downgrading their status to representation, a ban on the entry of deputies and party officials who voted for sanctions against the Russian Federation, on the representation of international organizations and Western media spreading anti-Russian information and supporting the sanctions.

    Will we see the promised economic breakthrough?

    All plans are made up in advance and a priori cannot take into account the real conditions during their implementation, and the changes have taken place very large and serious. Therefore, even the disbursement of funds within the framework of national projects somewhere at the level of 50% of the declared one should be considered a Good result, especially since the unspent funds do not disappear without a trace, but are transferred over and over to the next year. All this just speaks about the Competence of those who are engaged in this, and there are always more bawlers and critics than those who are engaged in real affairs.

    Reintegration of the post-Soviet space: changing the approach

    The reintegration of the post-Soviet space entirely depends on the economic position of the Russian Federation as its main driving force, and the stronger and more stable the economic situation of the Russian Federation, the greater the rate of reintegration and, on the contrary, the worse the situation of the Russian Federation, the more internal and external centrifugal forces in the post-Soviet space will grow ...
    In fact, we do not need economic integration of the CIS countries, the SCO, the GSP and others, but a clear understanding of our interests. As they say in England, there are no permanent friends - there are only permanent interests.

    What we have as a result

    a) the strengthening of savings is directly related to incl. and with the establishment of order within the country by improving the quality of the work of the authorities at all levels and directions.
    b) the reintegration of the post-Soviet space is fragmented, has not acquired stability and is balancing in a position of unstable equilibrium.
    c) there are no prerequisites for a change in the negative trend in foreign policy in recent years.

      As a matter of fact, I wrote about this approximately. Just not as definite as you are. Leaving, so to speak, room for cautious optimism.

      I just don't quite understand what kind of negative trend we are talking about? Himataki - an overplayed episode already, in the fairy tales about Navalny and so on. most of Europeans do not believe. About which I have repeatedly heard from their lips directly.

      And so - Russia returns to Africa, maintains its positions in the Middle East, we cooperate with China, with India. In the post-Soviet space, yes, everything could have been much better. And in other areas of foreign policy the picture is not bad.

      Not true. The "face" of Russia in the international arena is formed by the minimum wage adopted in this country - "175 dollars" and .... yachts "patriotically oriented oligarchs and government officials" standing in Nice Monaco and further on the Gold Coast wink
