19FortyFive: Russia has big plans outside Ukraine and Belarus


Despite widespread discussion of Russia's actions, Moscow's goals for the collective West are still unclear. According to the American resource 19FortyFive, Putin is implementing a macro-strategy in the near abroad, while the approach of the West is a micro-strategy.


According to American experts, Moscow is exploring the "gray zone" between NATO's eastern border and Russia's western border. This territory includes not only Ukraine and Belarus, but also Moldova and the Caucasian republics.

For example, the Kremlin's hegemonic aspirations include Moldova's “frozen conflict” with Russian-created Transnistria, the continued occupation of two Georgian provinces, and Moscow’s recent intervention in Armenia’s conflict with Azerbaijan.

19FortyFive also considers the increase in the number of Russian naval exercises in the Black Sea as manifestations of Russian military activity. The dominance of Russia in the Black Sea region threatens not only Ukraine and Georgia, but also worries Bulgaria, Romania and Turkey. At the same time, Putin received substantial space for waging a hybrid war that would meet Moscow's intermediate goals.

The West must acknowledge that the Kremlin is pursuing a broader, more interconnected and longer-term agenda than has hitherto been thought. At the same time, the Russian president improvises on the go and seizes opportunities as they arise.

NATO, in turn, should take on the task of unraveling all sorts of conflicts and other obstacles created by Russia: to liquidate Transnistria, which is politically dependent on the Russian Federation, and also to increase international attention to the Russian-occupied provinces of Georgia, Abkhazia and South Ossetia.

    This is an average belief, looking at the state of the Russian machine-building and machine-tool building. For example, at UAZ, CNC machines are only in the tool shop. As long as old models are sold, the plant lives. And then it goes bankrupt.

      The Russian Federation earns enough money to build modern machine-tool factories. The question is, why is there not enough money for this in the State budget?

        Only this money disappears somewhere. The active construction of these factories is only up to A.B. Chubais. But he is not the Mother of God eight-handed. The factories need cadres of workers. But vocational schools were destroyed 30 years ago. There are educational programs for working professions. But they are not can organize a professional practice, followed by a job. The process goes through the stump deck. Not like in South Korea or the USA, in Japan. Money is pledged for pretentious Olympiads (after which the champions are massively deprived of awards), churches, championships, show-offs of great power.

        This is not necessary for the modern Russian regime at the moment, the country's economic activity was determined back in the 90s. Which? There is a lot of information - read it - you will understand, if you do not understand - it means you cannot. This does not mean that this is good, it just happened, not without the "help" of Western "partners" of course. More or less Russians have adapted, now they are tightening up the law and order has almost been restored. Despite all these "dances with a tambourine" around fools from Ukraine and other crap designed for close-minded units, Russia continues to trade, very successfully, with the West, etc. And not only oil and gas, but also continues to be an active and respected member of various international trade organizations (for example, WTO, WTO, etc.). As for all these political troubles - it happens, as without them, everyone wants their place in the sun, from all sorts of pronounced degenerates, such as the Balts and Poles, and ending with complete ... such as Ukraine. So everything is as usual, plus the yellow press (and not only) have a job).
        In fact, there is room for Russia to strive for and there is something to improve, but not everything is as bad as crazy whiners and little men without honor and conscience are acting like fools here.

          Raw materials.

          In fact, there is room for Russia to move forward and there is something to improve,

          They do not reach concrete deeds to improve the life of the population. They are mired in turmoil, in the hunt for cheap products. Uzbekistan is already ahead, especially in terms of the size of the titular nation.

            Including raw materials. To say otherwise is not to know. The rest is your nagging, just nagging. Uzbekistan has always been ahead in terms of population growth in general. There are specific cases. Stop whining in vain.

              In addition to raw materials in the EU and the PRC, the Russian captains of the liberal economy have nothing to offer: no ships, no planes, no cars, no clothes, no shoes, no household appliances, no medicines. The Russian titular nation has been completely persecuted over the past 15 years.

                  Read the site madeunasru. Even on this site they stopped lying about Skolkovo, about RUSNANO, about success in IT and electronics.

      You have paranoid fantasies mixed with general depression for no reason and cognitive pseudo-associative delusions.

    Do they mean unraveling the conflicts in Iraq and Libya? Where did the flow of refugees to the EU come from?

    We should not care more about the interests of the West, but act in our own interests. To suppress provocations harshly, making such warnings that they would rush to change diapers. There are no people capable of fighting there.

      This is right! Perhaps it will be so under the next president. But not now.

        Unfortunately, you seem to be right. Today it is not possible, Chubais will not approve.
  4. It would not be sour from the K-Stan to bite off the northern regions, to expel the kosoryly from them and put up a concrete fence a la Israel!

      Three fronts, few in number, not mobilized, the Armed forces of Russia will not pull. The equipment is old. There are many bad guys for the delights of conscript service.

        Well, are you good enough? Will you go to the trenches? Or how? Can I send you with a scuba diving under an aircraft carrier as a fur seal? Or do you think you will issue a combat leaflet in the rear?

          I would prefer to fight the fat pilaf with a small sapper shovel, which is what I wish for you.

          1. so go to the churbanostan, or is it already there? How are things with the Kakhakh Mova?
