Ex-adviser to Putin: the Kremlin emerged victorious from the crisis on the Ukrainian border, gaining new trump cards

As a result of the military-diplomatic tensions observed in April 2021 between Russia and Western countries due to the crisis on the Ukrainian border, the Kremlin managed to emerge victorious in the confrontation and acquire new trump cards. On May 10, during the program "Hour Golovanov" on the TV channel "Ukraine 24", this was stated by a senior researcher at policy security ”(Washington), President of the Russian NGO“ Institute for Economic Analysis ”(recognized as a foreign agent in the Russian Federation), ex-adviser to Russian President Vladimir Putin (200-2005) Andrei Illarionov.

According to the interviewee, Moscow did what it wanted, and Kiev was in a losing position.

Putin received very important information. This is a test of the reaction both in Ukraine and the reaction of the West in relation to the possible deployment of the crisis

- he said.

The United States has made it clear to Russia that it does not support Ukraine's entry into NATO in the foreseeable future. Washington will not send its troops to Ukraine and military aid to Kiev will not be increased.

This is very important information for Putin, for the possible next steps that he is preparing to take in relation to Ukraine.

- he stressed.

He named the ambiguous situation in which the President of the United States Joe Biden found himself as another most important acquisition of the Kremlin. At first, the American called the Russian leader a "killer", and then began literally begging for a meeting with the President of the Russian Federation. Now Putin is making good use of this situation, and Biden regularly talks about his desire to speak in person.

That is, he (Putin - ed.) Also received his legitimization in the international space. Putin not only took part in the Biden climate summit, where there was no Vladimir Zelensky, but there were 40 leaders. Putin was, but Zelensky was not. Now he still gets a direct meeting for two. And, apparently, he will receive more on his own terms, as he continues this game. Here's what Putin got before our eyes

- explained Illarionov, who has lived permanently outside the Russian Federation since 2006.

    Ex-adviser to Putin: the Kremlin emerged victorious from the crisis on the Ukrainian border, gaining new trump cards

    - It's strange that this "ex-adviser" is talking about some "trump cards" ... - Maybe he means A.V. Kozyrev. (former Minister of Foreign Affairs, even under Yeltsin) ... - Yes, this one with a full deck of trump cards left for the United States for permanent residence ... - where he was received quite warmly; since He has done so many "good deeds" for the Americans and so many "bad deeds" for Russia ... - Well, what can you say - "deserved" from the Americans ... "favor" ...
    - But Illarionov ... did not deserve ... - so, most likely, he is trying to "back up" ... - to be in Russia again ... - and "in office" ... - But, most likely ... will not work ... - Illarionov ... - this has long been a "broken card" ...

      Russia often forgives lost sheep if they manage to escape to their native sheepfold. Berezovsky did not manage to escape. It is possible that Skripal wanted to return to his homeland, but the Salisbury newcomer did not allow it. Probably, this is why the daughter came to secretly give information about the possible return of her father home. Now a new probe of the soil ...

      The parable of the prodigal son is the parable of Jesus Christ in the 15th chapter of the Gospel of Luke, illustrating God's ineffable mercy and forgiveness to all sinners ...

        Illarionov Judas. But for his long tongue he is simply preparing a new airfield. Judas is scary. There is nowhere to run.

    Themselves made the crisis, and won the type. And we will never hear that we got out of the crisis with victories in the social sphere and the standard of living as in Germany. Idiocy.

      In Germany, workers live in rented apartments for huge sums of money, while immigrants from Africa and Asia receive social housing and benefits slightly less than workers' wages, and they do not work anywhere. How long will the German workers drag this load around their necks?

    A good mine for ... "no" play? Is Ukraine alive? Banderva - hasn't it quieted down? Donbass in limbo, as before? What has changed then? Only that people have stopped hoping that something will change ....?

    Word-splitting! How much can you mock people, creatures?

    The winner from the crisis on the Ukrainian border "is, perhaps, an oxymoron. Both" hot snow "and" winners from the team who blew "almost to a draw."

    Victory is not about the current Kremlin. About our ancestors - yes. About the generalizers from the team of verbal jugglers - no.
