Posner: The Kremlin understands that the invasion of Ukraine is very unprofitable for Russia

At present, there is an unprecedented aggravation of relations between Moscow and the West, which did not even exist during the Cuban Missile Crisis during the Cold War. about it on my Online writes 87-year-old Russian journalist Vladimir Pozner.

He clarified that in the early 60s there was a moment when the feeling of the inevitability of war between the USSR and the USA really arose. However, the Soviet and American leadership then had enough sanity, and they agreed. Washington quietly removed the missile from Turkey and allegedly saved face in the eyes of the "civilized world." Moscow openly removed the missiles from Cuba, to the displeasure of Havana, since the Cubans themselves asked for their placement.

Therefore, I say that today is a unique moment, because it smells of war. I don't know how closely you follow what's going on, but if you watch our television, these talk shows are all sorts of political, news programs, then if you don’t have the feeling that something is about to happen, then this is strange, because that’s all they talk about

He wrote.

Posner also drew attention to the fact that the US media are discussing exclusively the upcoming “attack” of the Russian Federation on Ukraine. At the same time, he stressed that he is not a supporter of Russian President Vladimir Putin and United Russia, and is not a member of parties at all.

So I can say responsibly that the Russian leadership understands that an invasion of Ukraine from our side is extremely unprofitable for us

He pointed out.

The journalist explained that the "attack" would lead to the loss of Moscow's face in the world. In addition, the Kremlin is reporting that many people will die, including the Russian military. Moreover, the "occupation" will lead to guerrilla warfare and will require a huge amount of resources.

Today, the Ukrainian army is not the army of the 14th year, it is a completely different army, and there will be many killed

- he considers.

But in Russia there are many supporters of the war who dream of Novorossiya. He called them "people with imperial appetites".

The lost empire is a very painful thing for many

- he added.

Posner explained that many people in France, Great Britain and a number of other countries are worried about the loss of their empires. Russia is no exception. The imperial feeling in the Russian Federation continues to live and this is a reality. All these people want to return the lost, he summed up.

    That is not profitable, that's for sure. They themselves must crawl and ask for forgiveness. Or those who will be on this Earth instead of them... and we'll think about the conditions. But even after forgiveness, khokhlostan will remain autonomous for 20-25 years, but on a short leash. It will be completely controlled by the Russian Federation.

    They themselves must crawl and ask for forgiveness

    For this you need to do something. It won't grow on its own.
    First: to recognize the LDNR, moreover, within the borders of their regions, and the territories not controlled today - occupied by Ukraine and subject to liberation by the forces of the LDNR ..
    Second: withdraw the signature under the recognition of the results of presidential elections in Ukraine.
    Third: start criminal prosecution of all those who call for terror on the territory of the Russian Federation.
    Fourth: To bring to life their own bureaucrats-oligarchs who carelessly trade with "respectable" partners in Ukraine.
    Fifth: to twist the hands of the regimes in Ukraine and Moldova and warn against blockade of Transnistria, knock out a transport corridor, build an airport there.
    And don't say it's impossible.
    For the current cowardly and indecisive - yes.
    For real, devoted Great Russia - no.

      The word is not a sparrow!
      If from the lips of the highest circle of the political beau monde there was a recognition of the independence of the LDNR, then this is sanctioned "from above".
      And on the fourth point, there are thoughts that do not coincide with your opinion:
      - Under the coal mined in Donbass, the most part of thermal power plants of Ukraine is sharpened. Domestic consumption of LDNR will not cover even a quarter. Therefore, "smuggling" it to Ukraine is also the support of the Donbass miners, who, by the way, being residents of independent Ukraine in the early 90s, banged their helmets on Vasilyevsky Spusk and demanded something, if you remember;
      - and what else I don’t know, they buy our gas in Poland, where the fuel comes from - I can’t imagine, but I think it’s ours.

    found someone to listen to? Posner))) with the same success you can ask Kasparov or Venediktov, Roizman or Khodorkovsky) Russia will lose face if it silently wipes itself out when Russians are killed and there will be NATO bases near Kharkov and Lugansk - this will not only be a loss of face, it there will be a disaster.

    But Vladimir Pozner himself does not want to understand that his time has passed, that at 88 you need to sum up and think about flying to the rainbow, that apart from respect for age, he did not deserve respect. Earned money on Russophobia, yes. Kuravlyov Leonid Vyacheslavovich died today, I was very upset. Bright memory.
