Why did Europe sharply back down in the Navalny case?


As soon as it has begun, the diplomatic war between Russia and the collective West comes to an abrupt end. Apparently, Europe was simply not ready for the Kremlin to rise to death for the interests of our oligarchs, threatening it with a complete break in relations. On such fundamental issues as the fate of Nord Stream 2, opposition leader Alexei Navalny with his presidential ambitions, and foreign assets of members of the Russian Forbes list, a compromise is being planned. Can this be considered a victory for Moscow?


Extremely "muddy" in all respects, the story of the poisoning of an opposition blogger-whistleblower could become a Rubicon, after which relations between Russia and the European Union would have deteriorated completely. It was already about personal Western sanctions against oligarchs especially close to the Kremlin, who actually own whole system-forming sectors of the Russian economics... Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov did not diplomatically decipher what exactly he meant when he spoke of a complete break, leaving everyone else to speculate. Apparently, in Brussels and Berlin they thought about the worst, because the Europeans began to back down. According to the respected Bloomberg, if sanctions are imposed, it will be only against those functionaries who are directly involved in the case of Alexei Navalny. Our billionaires, apparently, will be taken out of the blow.

But why exactly did this happen?

At firstMoscow has chosen a rather good time to blackmail the EU by breaking off relations. Presumably, the diplomats explained through their own channels that cooperation in the field of energy could fall under the counterstrike. Yes, in the West, under the direction of the United States, they put obstacles against Russian gas pipelines, but Europe objectively needs domestic "blue fuel". Until 2050, Brussels has set a goal of complete decarbonization of its economy, but gas will still be needed for these transitional 30 years. In addition, the latest weather crisis in the American Midwest and South has demonstrated that a complete rejection of traditional energy in favor of green energy can lead to a real disaster. There is something to think about.

SecondlyAs analysts at Bloomberg have rightly pointed out, breaking ties with Russia will be extremely disadvantageous for the West itself. Today the European Union is our largest trading partner. If cooperation is terminated for political reasons, the Kremlin will simply have no choice but to fall in front of China. The economic "weight categories" of the Russian Federation and the PRC are incomparable, Beijing will simply have to wait a bit until a crisis occurs in the domestic economy due to the impossibility of selling raw materials and other products for export, and pick up everything that interests it for the conventional "three kopecks." This, to put it mildly, will not attract allied relations; rather, it will be about gradually absorption. But why would the US and the EU need a geopolitical monster that could eventually emerge? No, it is not in the interests of the West to completely alienate Russia from itself; on the contrary, it is more profitable for it to keep it nearby on an "economic leash."

So what kind of compromises are being planned between Washington, Brussels and Moscow?

First of all, with regard to Nord Stream 2, the United States can give the go-ahead, and the gas pipeline will nevertheless be put into operation. In return, Gazprom will have to give guarantees of maintaining transit through Ukraine on a permanent basis after 2024. More about possible conditions we told earlier.

As for the Russian oligarchs and their assets, they will not be touched. What for? If their accounts, elite real estate and families are in the West, then this is the very "economic leash" through which the domestic "elite" can be pulled from time to time. The "switches" in the Navalny case will appoint ordinary law enforcement officers and judges who only performed their official duties.

The Navalny couple is even more interesting. Alexey himself will be in prison, it is possible that a new term will be imposed on him for something else, if a suitable corpus delicti is found. Under pressure from the West, no one will in principle let him go, since this will be a loss of face. The fate of the oppositionist is destined to become a "prisoner of conscience" and spend years behind bars, but such are sometimes the ways of public policy, but he is an adult and made his own choice. But his wife Yulia, who has already held a photo session in Germany in the style of "elections", remained at large. In other words, the Kremlin gets the seated Alexei Navalny, and the West gets Tikhanovskaya-2 in order to put pressure on the ruling regime in Russia in the future.

            Awesome! Those. you yourself admit that these juvenile "fighters for justice" are actually just consumers. And I absolutely agree with you here. To take away and divide, this is their main desire. And they do not understand, or pretend that they do not understand - you can take away something, you cannot divide it. Because all these billions of "oligarchs" are not money, but factories, plants, agricultural holdings, chain stores, etc. Yes, they have personal funds and they are rather big by the standards of ordinary citizens, but this is minuscule in their condition. And by the way, at your leisure, look at the definition of the term "oligarch" and try to name at least one modern Russian.

        Are you deliberately lying or are you just not good at economics? If we talk about what Russia lives on, then we should talk about the budget and the income of legal entities. You mixed everything into one heap. Although each component must be considered separately. Because their structure is very different. The population directly working at enterprises lives on the income from the proceeds of products and services (in the external and internal markets), at the same time, budgets of different levels are filled with the same proceeds and payments to employees. If we talk about the budget, then the picture is something like this

        Big business (a handful of oligarchs) accounts for about 80% of Russia's GDP, and only the remaining 20% ​​of GDP falls on medium and small businesses. If you disagree, prove it in numbers.

        Oops! The author apparently is not aware that the Russian people, quite recently, were an integral part of the Soviet people, which quite voluntarily, without apparent coercion, accepted first perestroika, and then capitalism, in connection with which it now has what it has. If the Russian people now begin to move out, to Maidan, to revolutionize against their native oligarchs, then the Anglo-Saxon oligarchs will come, and the Russian people, like the peoples of other countries to which they came, in the Stone Age, endless internecine wars and complete extinction will roll over.

        Everything is fine with me. But you have problems. Either with the country, or in terms of philology. Your dismissive phrases about the country as prone to blackmail reveal your true mood. Mentioning Navalny as a "prisoner of conscience" doesn’t even save quotes, because you don’t decipher the meaning of quotation marks (highlighting a figurative expression or sarcasm?) When commentators write this, they are forgiven. A journalist should not allow doublethink in his expressions. (If he is a real journalist). But your mention of the fact that the Kremlin stands to its death in the protection of the oligarchs, but not all citizens of the country, through the protection of the enterprise that fills the country's budget, gives a clear idea of ​​your political predilections. You are ideologically very close to Navalny. And since the latter is an instrument of the West for an internal explosion of the situation in the country, then your side and role in this process is quite defined as unfriendly for the state and the people.

    To be honest, just a jumble of letters with a lumen of phrases about the meaning of something there. Especially about the absorption of the Russian Federation by China. The whole USA with the "civilized west" has been swallowing up, swallowing up for many years, and it seems like they have begun to pour in, but they are acting kind of cheerfulness and steadfastness.

    Another "article" concocted from assumptions, conjectures and fantasies of the author ..

    Apparently, Europe was simply not ready for the Kremlin to rise to death for the interests of our oligarchs, threatening it with a complete break in relations.

    In fact, these are our oligarchs (let's leave out the people's attitude towards them), but it would be foolish to replace them with foreign ones (along with external management), which will inevitably happen if the interests of trans-national corporations, headed by their oligarchs, prevail.
    The author apparently sincerely assumes that the top of the so-called. Europe is made up of workers, peasants and "working intelligentsia". belay
    And her interests in Russia are purely humanistic.

    A compromise is planned on such fundamental issues as the fate of Nord Stream 2, opposition leader Alexei Navalny with his presidential ambitions, and foreign assets of members of the Russian Forbes list.

    Sucked from the next toe of the left foot.
    The mess is just beginning and it will be tough.
    The only question is how far Europe (represented by the Brussels "commissars") is ready to go.
    I don’t think the cold winter chilled their heads much.

    Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov diplomatically did not decipher what exactly he meant when he spoke of a complete break, leaving everyone else to speculate. Apparently, in Brussels and Berlin they thought about the worst, because the Europeans began to take back.

    It is a masterpiece!
    True, the author did not begin to decipher the knowledge that apparently is known to him alone ...
    But here the main thing is to grunt loudly, and then at least the moon does not go down ..

    PS Further in the same style, piling up others on some conjectures and making some "conclusions".
    Although the general idea is clear.

    TP Yulka with her eyes of a fishy fish - for the presidency? Well this is very funny.
    What is at least her stupid boorish polemic with all respected Dr. Roshal. She is even stupider than Tikhanovskaya.

    The author does not need to write about politics, he is a complete amateur in this. And, to begin with, we advise him to learn the meaning of the term "oligarch". The author seems to be very surprised when he learns that there are no oligarchs in Russia today.

      The definition of oligarchy - in the studio!
      Everything that I personally found falls into our reality - 100%. Oligarchy - literally, the power of the few (as opposed to democracy). An oligarch is not necessarily a big capitalist. "Cooperative Lake" is a typical oligarchic group. What's wrong?

    The person who wrote the article is mentally in an anti-Russian position, i.e. from the camp of no brothers. This is where the legs of some theses grow. For example, why Russia should be absorbed by China is completely incomprehensible. The US economy is also not comparable to the Russian economy, but Russia was not absorbed by the US. Therefore, this is all the Ukrainian mentality, the country fell under the US, EU, even Poland. And thinking that everyone does it.

    The West saw him as a thief and a boozer. That is why no one will worry about him, then they themselves will show how bad he is. The time will come and Yulia will be handed over if it comes to the point that they will undertake to move her. This is only a consumable for them, a place for which in prison is the best case.

    Moscow has chosen a rather good time to blackmail the EU by breaking off relations

    Isn't the West engaged in blackmail? Not to mention forgeries and outright falsifications. It's just that we finally understood: there is no point in caving in, fearing sanctions on the next occasion, because even if they surrendered all their positions, the cheats from the US and EU will immediately create a new news feed. And we have enough oppositionists (self-proclaimed) in the country, and our emigrants in the West - poison anyone and hang all the dogs on Putin. And even proof is not needed - who else besides him?

    Oops! The author apparently is not aware that the Russian people, quite recently, were an integral part of the Soviet people, which quite voluntarily, without apparent coercion, accepted first perestroika, and then capitalism, in connection with which it now has what it has. If the Russian people now begin to move out, to Maidan, to revolutionize against their native oligarchs, then the Anglo-Saxon oligarchs will come, and the Russian people, like the peoples of other countries to which they came, in the Stone Age, endless internecine wars and complete extinction will roll over.

    What are you talking about? Do you naively think that the Anglo-Saxon oligarchs have not yet arrived?

    Big business (a handful of oligarchs) accounts for about 80% of Russia's GDP, and only the remaining 20% ​​of GDP falls on medium and small businesses. If you disagree, prove it in numbers. In general, the topic is so extensive that it cannot be disclosed in one comment. But your statements are deliberate misinformation. What for?

    You are simply substituting concepts.

    And the West is not engaged in blackmail?

    Deals with. Everyone is engaged, including the Kremlin. This is one of the normal goals of foreign policy, to make someone dependent on himself. I don’t understand why everyone was so excited.
