Asia Times: Why Russia is driving the West crazy


Russia, through the mouth of its foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, indicated to collective Europe that it would no longer tolerate the dictates of the EU and its unilateral restrictions. According to the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry, the main problem of Brussels and Moscow is the abnormality of bilateral relations. The West, meanwhile, blames maddening Russia for all sins, throwing tantrums over the "NATO agent and convicted swindler Navalny."


To understand the reasons for Western Russophobia, Asia Times suggests referring to the book "Russian Conservatism" by Glenn Diesen. According to the author, political the face of Russia was shaped by its geography, topography and history. The origins of Russian autocracy and conservatism lie in Russia's vast expanses, with few outlets to the seas, and in the absence of natural defensive boundaries.

Autocracy became a necessity after the Mongol legacy and the formation of Russia as a Eurasian empire with a huge and loosely connected geographic space

- supposes Dizen.

Of particular importance in this case is that East and West meet in Russia, as Dostoevsky and Gumilyov wrote about in their time. Thus, the Europeans are making a big mistake trying on their patterns to Russian realities. The same idea can be traced in the concept of sovereign democracy, which speaks of the impossibility of the existence of democracy without sovereignty, which implies the rejection of Western instructions and methodologies.

The hostile strategy of the Western "partners" in relation to Russia presupposes Moscow's consent to the ideas of the development of the Russian Federation coming from Washington and Brussels - allegedly, the Russians have no other way. However, the rise of the East opens up an opportunity for the Russian Federation to diversify its partnerships, which drives the West crazy.

However, according to Asia Times, there is also some possibility of creating an alliance between Germany, Russia and China. But the transformation of Europe into the western peninsula and backyards of Greater Eurasia is more likely.

    And what does Western Europe have to do with it, it is just a toy, which has been proven by the entire past century and the present one. Russia, too, became a toy since 1917. Then, in the forties, it gained sovereignty for a short time, but after Stalin's death, the tentacles of liberalism penetrated the softened brains of the party elite. And the intelligentsia carried these ideas to the younger generation like a furious horse. And that's all. By eliminating unnecessary figures, they brought an idiot processed by the CIA to the position of the secretary general. Which brought the right people to key positions and launched the destruction program. We worked with the national elites, created an artificial deficit. And when they went to negotiations on depletion, everything fell down, the Warsaw Pact fell. A terrible blow to the defense army and special services and the military-industrial complex. Then the second series, the idiot is removed and the main traitors, recruited by the CIA and MI6, a team of destroyers led by Yeltsin, enter the scene.
    They had clear instructions, they knew what and how to do. The outside support was complete. The generals and special services are partly paralyzed, partly bought and recruited, many supported the traitors.
    Having signed the Belovezhskaya agreements, Yeltsin reported to the White House, "It's done." The country fell apart by drowning in interethnic squabbles. The revolt of the parliament that came to its senses was brutally and demonstratively suppressed, and the robbery began and continues to this day. The country is a toy in the mighty hands of others, and we are still a toy. An attempt to twitch when the enemy took over Ukraine in 2014 did not lead to anything.
    And now the next step is a new zeroing 2.0. The time of the antichrist is coming. T e unified slave state ruled by a world government headed by the despot of Zion, based on new technologies. The Russian people can still stop their death if they support the healthy forces available in the country. Remember liberalism, democracy, communism, anarchy, these ideas and teachings were invented by very smart people with the sole purpose of tearing the people away from the faith, separating them from true Christian values, sowing enmity and ultimately playing off nations in wars, destroying states, exhausting them so spiritually and physically that they themselves will surrender themselves to the power of these clever and cruel people.
    Read the Zion Protocols and rejoice. everything is written there.

    I do not understand the joy. sent pawns, which were sent by ambassadors. It was necessary to send those ambassadors whose employees went for a walk to the rallies. As they say in Odessa: if business in a brothel does not go, they do not rearrange the beds in places, but simply change "b ... th". If any ambassador left for home, everything would immediately fall into place. Otherwise why did they present credentials ??????

    Not a bad article overall. Cheerfully and optimistic. And the author himself and "Asha Times". about the eastern wing of modern civilization sound quite encouraging. That's just

    But the transformation of Europe into the western peninsula and the backyard of Greater Eurasia is more likely.

    somewhat spoils the style, somehow very much reminiscent of the brilliant future of the settlement of Vasyuki. laughing Than the meaning of the whole publication is greatly degraded ... laughing
