German media spoke about Putin's "Achilles heel"


The next batch of EU sanctions will not work on Russian leader Vladimir Putin, so you need to use other opportunities to influence, writes the German newspaper Frankfurter Rundschau.


If the EU really wants to punish the Russian government for its violence against the local opposition, then it needs to pay attention not to the master of the Kremlin, but to the emptiness behind the system he has built.

This structure consists of military personnel loyal to the head of state, secret service workers, officials and persons endowed with privileges. At the same time, the Russian system of power has a big flaw. The Russian Federation is not the USSR, which had at least some kind of value system.

Six years after the imposition of anti-Russian sanctions over Ukraine, Moscow has more options for retaliation. Russia's influence in Donbass, Transnistria, Abkhazia and South Ossetia is very great. At the same time, Ankara, despite its rivalry with Moscow, continues to help the Russian Federation in its confrontation with the EU.

Therefore, before surrendering, Putin and his entourage will cause even more harm to their own country and the international community. As attractive as the restrictions may seem to you, they can be harmful to all parties. In this regard, you need to pay attention to one interesting nuance, the media emphasizes.

The protesters do not have to agree with Navalny, but they share the opinion that "enough is enough"

- wrote on Twitter account Jens Siegert, ex-head of the Moscow office of the Heinrich Böll Foundation.

It is the feeling of "enough", experienced by Russians, that is more effective than any sanctions, including pressure on oligarchs close to the Kremlin and the closure of Nord Stream 2. It will be much more painful and effective, you just need to strengthen this feeling in a variety of ways. For example, to show the luxury that the Russian elite has.

In addition, it is possible to arrange a real intellectual plunder of the nation, luring young Russian specialists to the West, who still have no chances because of the "talented children of the elite." For people with moral principles, visa-free can be introduced and cultural exchange can be maximized.

With soft tools, you can achieve a greater result and fix it. This is Putin's “Achilles heel”, so he suppresses NGOs that criticize the government. The Russian system is built solely on power and wealth, therefore, in the long term, it is powerless over morality, sums up the publication from Germany.

    And the young Russian "specialists" are probably Daria Navalnaya, who is studying at Stanford? laughing

    In order to enter an American university, a Russian graduate does not need to receive high scores on the exam, it is enough to simply get a certificate, pass an English test well, and also submit a creative project or motivational essay. Such a creative project for Daria was her personal video blog on YouTube, in which she communicates with her peers about ... protests against the Russian authorities.

      nobody. and their revolution is wet - a clash in the cam. The steelmaker will not let you lie. They have suffered for 30 years - they will suffer the same amount if the party needs it)

      For many on this forum, this latent barrage is more than everything. Clowns feel like knights from whom Putin is hiding in a bunker

      It is necessary to attach such a red nose to the profile picture

      And the young Russian "specialists" are probably Daria Navalnaya, who is studying at Stanford?

      These are tens of thousands of people who leave Russia every year. The latest poll showed that among 20-35 year olds, the percentage of those wishing to leave this kleptocracy is more than 50%. So they go.
      A friend's son, 23, is finishing his studies at a university in the Czech Republic and is not going to return to Putin's Russia, he says that there are few prospects for life, work and business here, and there are many dangers - crime, corruption, lawlessness of policemen and the judicial system. Moreover, the family is not oligarchs, not "bohemian" officials or businessmen from the authorities. Ordinary people who hardly scraped together for their son to study abroad. Something like this. Incl. do not be naughty.

          After 1917, hundreds of thousands of competent specialists left Russia. Remind me? Sikorsky (aviation), Zvorykin (television), Borodovich (photography), Ipatiev (cracking and petrochemistry), Kistyarovsky (atom), Ponyatov (video recorder) and many, many, many tens of thousands of others.
          Now every year tens of thousands of smart and active people leave Russia. In our country it is decreasing, and in the West it is increasing.

          And no one is waiting for him here.
          Its enough.

          Yes, there are enough people like you, even too much, alas ...

    German media spoke about Putin's "Achilles heel"

    - The Germans, before to write at least something reasonable ... - first would strain their brains (or although they did not turn them off) and themselves tried to analyze at least something ... - Otherwise, they are not doing anything. ...
    - Here, personally, I will "analyze" for them ...:
    - What are the other sanctions against Russia ??? - All sanctions (even of the most peaceful nature) are immediately perceived by Russia ... as ... as ... as an attack on Russia itself, an attack that is of a military nature ...
    - Of course ... - "Get up, huge country" ... - this does not happen, but ... but ... but, even that is enough to

    If the EU really wants to punish the Russian government for its violence against the local opposition, then it needs to pay attention not to the master of the Kremlin, but to the emptiness behind the system he has built.

    - So that the "emptiness" about which the German media are raving about ... - this "emptiness" would materialize and it would turn out to be quite a significant force-opposition ...
    - And the fact that ... supposedly

    At the same time, the Russian system of power has a big flaw. The Russian Federation is not the USSR, which had at least some kind of value system.

    - the "value system" that was under the USSR has already disappeared (and it really disappeared) ... - it is no longer so important ... - Because. anyway ... - there is already a Russian (Russian) Army, which may well "pile" on all the same Germans and all of Europe at the same time ... - And they do it not only for the fact that some values ​​will immediately arise, but even only on the other hand, that their fathers and grandfathers used to do this and these "new grandchildren" of theirs will also want to do the same ... - The main thing is to start playing ... - and then you can't stop ... This is against its own people. suitable; but against all the others ... - just fine ... - But in general ... - who would "be silent about the Russians" ... - so this is the Germans in the first place ... - And then their "Achilles heel "... - this bare heel ... - still very clearly looms in the slums of the Reichstag ... - And if something happens ... - it will remain among the broken bricks ... - pathetic and crushed ...

    And again. As soon as someone in the West becomes an "ex", his brain immediately begins to move. But this "it" cannot immediately think logically (it takes time) and therefore continues to carry a blizzard. Let him explain the meaning of this phrase, because the "protesters" are fifteen-year-old idiots, and the funniest thing is that they are interested in "enough" ...
