American scientist: Western behavior demanded a "slap" from Lavrov


The behavior of the West, in particular the European Union, left no choice to Moscow and literally demanded a "slap in the face" from Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov for sobering up, said Gilbert Doctorow, an American scientist, writer, historian and expert on Russia. He published his vision of the situation on his personal blog.


If you want peace, prepare for war!

- Lavrov told Russian media on February 11, 2021, talking about a possible break in relations with the EU if vital economic interests of the Russian Federation.

The minister's words were clearly aimed at creating enlightenment in the fat skulls of European officials and parliamentarians. Moreover, it is not the first time that Russians have interpreted popular wisdom in a new way, trying to convey their point of view to the West in a more understandable way.

For example, if you do not finance your army, you will finance someone else's, and if you cannot deal with Lavrov, then you will have to deal with Shoigu (Russian Defense Minister). The source of these sayings is the same - Russian President Vladimir Putin. Therefore, it makes no sense for the Europeans to take offense at Lavrov for his toughness - his line of behavior was established by his boss, the master of the Kremlin.

In early February, the EU sent its chief diplomat, Josep Borrell, to Moscow to try to get Russian opposition blogger Alexei Navalny out of jail. The Europeans did not even think that they were rudely interfering in the internal affairs of Russia. Moreover, they perceived Moscow's refusal as "an insult and humiliation", after which they began to whip up anti-Russian hysteria.

For anyone with a bit of discernment and neutrality, it is obvious that Navalny is nothing more than a modern instrument of pressure, a ram used by the United States, Britain, Germany, not to mention the jackals ruling Poland and the Baltic countries to harm Russia and to the Russian people. Likewise insane policy Washington overdone its support for jihadists in Afghanistan in the 80s to oust the Soviets, creating what later returned to haunt the United States and Europe.

Recently, the collective West has become completely outrageous, disgusting in its behavior towards others. I cannot say whether Lavrov's slap in the face will sober up the minds in Europe and the United States. But this was done in all seriousness, and life for all of us will become rather deplorable if Brussels does not abandon the policy initiated by some individuals in Washington.

    ... to harm Russia and the Russian people.

    Either the translation is inaccurate, or deliberately written inaccurately. According to the constitution, Russia is a multinational state in which not only the Russian people live.

      Russians are the East Slavic people, the most numerous people of Russia, the most numerous European people.
      Russia is multinational, but the state-forming people are Russians.

      Therefore, it's time to leave all your complexes on the sidelines. Because it has been and will always be so.

      776 nationalities live in Russia, many of which number no more than a few hundred people.

      And even if the enemy jumps on the smallest people of Russia (on some kind of Ents), the Russians will come and put this animal in a stall and the Ents will be free. Here we resolve issues.

      Therefore, they say that the Russian army and the Russian people. And the army will be Russian - even if all 270 Enets will serve in it with all their people, fit in 2 companies

        So you leave them, show an example.

        I did not even imagine that the mere mention of the Russian constitution would cause such a violent reaction :) I can offer you other aspects that will make you salivate no less.

        It talks about the decline in the population of Russia since 2016.

        I did not look at the figures for the past year, but in the previous few years, leaving Russia for permanent residence was about 370 thousand people a year. This is equal to the population of regional centers like Smolensk or Kaluga.

        In 1990, the number of the RSFSR was about 145 million people. After 30 years, the population is the same, BUT! Now, out of 145 million of the population, 10-15 million people are yesterday's migrants, who were granted Russian citizenship in a simplified manner. Plus Uzbek-Tajiks without Russian citizenship, plus various illegal illegal immigrants and ethnic gangs. With such a rate of depopulation by 2050, Russia will turn into Uzbekistan.

        And here you are, continue to revel in the glorious victories of 300-500 years ago.

          are you talking about Napoleon? Hitler? Ottoman Empire? Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth?)

          About gabunostan under American protectorate in 2008? about ISIS, which no longer exists - there are gangs of otchipents crawling in the desert - and the Muslim state no longer exists, because Russia came to Syria. Or are you talking about Crimea?

          In 1990, the number of the RSFSR was about 145 million people. After 30 years, the population is the same, BUT! Now, out of 145 million of the population, 10-15 million people are yesterday's migrants, who were granted Russian citizenship in a simplified manner.

          Ukrainians and Belarusians, Russians who came from Kazakhstan. I am for it.

          severe salivation.

          calls Russia from those who take away extra land)

          Do you think the Russians will not defeat the enemies in the same way as they defeated yours (well, or German or French or Polish ancestors? Who fought against the Russian woman?) You are not Russian, but you live somewhere nearby and broadcast in Russian - that means 100% went to your lands)

          Resentment is still felt in your letters

          With such a rate of depopulation by 2050, Russia will turn into Uzbekistan.

          In January-December 2020, 409 citizens of Ukraine received Russian citizenship.

          Only 30 million Uzbeks live in Uzbekistan. What are you talking about? Are you oriented at all? Or are you pushing the buttons randomly?)

            Russians, along with 700 nations, have become the most powerful on this planet. Even the collective West of a billion carcasses cannot do anything with us.

            Russia goes through time, breaking empires and neighboring states) Grinding the French, Janissaries, Germans, Poles, Pashtuns, Swedes, Japanese, Ukrainian Aryans cooking in cauldrons, showing the gabunyats their place.

                  Descendants of the "legendary fictional character" received some preferences from rEjim. Which have been used for many years.

                  “Tsar Mikhail Fedorovich generously rewarded the descendants of Ivan Susanin for the heroic deed of his ancestor. and duties ... In addition, in 1644, the descendants of Ivan Susanin were granted a new tsarist charter, by virtue of which it is forbidden for governors, detectives and other authorities to go to the village of Korobovo ... offenses and taxes and constitute, as it were, a special title. "

                We have a free country, who wants to come, who wants to leave. And they come no less. We will find out all the interesting details in the fall after the population census. We have nothing to hide, we are not neighbors who have not had a census for 30 years and are afraid to conduct it.
                Before that, there is no point in arguing, save up bile, come and talk in the fall.

      look at the map. Check out which location we drove the Japanese
      see whose Crimea and whether there are Turks there, see where the Poles and where the Germans are, see where the Swedes

      what are you writing about battles. I'm writing to you about the result of all the wars. Not individual battles won or lost

      To the Turks, yes, they lost a couple of times out of 16 too. So the Ukrainians went for a walk. But we'll put them back soon. Because this is Russian land and Russian cities)

    Livonian War, Crimean War, Russian-Japanese War.
    Your braces have already broken, it's obvious.

    Obviously, you don't know much about history.
    As a result of the ensuing events, Livonia became part of Russia, they did not even try to tear away Crimea from it, and Japan is still whining about several islands of the Kuril ridge.
    Russia can lose a battle, even a war, but Russia cannot be defeated from the outside ..

    The Russians cannot be defeated, we have seen this for hundreds of years. But Russians can be instilled with false values ​​and then they will defeat themselves.

    I mean Kalka and Kiev, Livonian, Crimean, Russian-Japanese.
    I'm too lazy to look about the Poles and Turks, but there the Russians lost part of the wars.

    Then look about the French and the Germans.
    To start. repeat

    Russians harness for a long time, but drive fast.

        Russians, to put it mildly, are very patient))

        Therefore, your people are part of Russia, you are learning Russian, your children will speak Russian, and even Crimean Tatars are now part of Russia and will also speak Russian. Because the Russians, to put it mildly. They solve this issue without asking your opinion. And even the opinions of your father and ancestors who came before your father

        you and your ancestors were presented with a fact - telling you that now you are part of the Russian Empire)

        And since then, the Tatars have served in the army of the Russian tsars) So your ancestors still died for Ivan the Terrible) For the Moscow Tsar)

    on my father's Tatar, then I'm a Tatar, and not some non-Russian.

    This is until you went abroad.

    "In Dagestan I am an Avar, in Russia I am a Dagestan, and abroad I am a Russian." (Rasul Gamzatov)

    Russians, to put it mildly, are very patient)))). Before it was all the same.

    Sometimes patience ends and then it doesn't matter how you wear a skullcap laughing
