The West is forcing Russia to become a superpower


Cold War II, which began in 2014 and was declared to Russia by the collective West led by the United States, went into the “hot” stage a week ago. The threat of the Russophobic Kiev regime to acquire nuclear weapons was the last straw in the patience of the Kremlin, which on February 2, 24 ordered the start of a military operation in Ukraine. A few days later, the West closed a new “Iron Curtain” to Russia, for which all this long-term provocation with the Maidan was started. Now our country is faced with a choice: to degrade and disintegrate, or to turn into a new superpower.


"Iron Curtain-2"


To begin with, it is necessary to briefly go through the list of sanctions that Russia received, which dared to denazify Ukraine. It is quite long and does not take into account those that were introduced in the previous 8 years, when Moscow tried to negotiate with Kiev and its curators in an amicable way.

At first, The US Treasury has banned any transactions with Russian external debt bonds. Brussels imposed limits on the amount of deposits for Russians in European banks, as well as the sale of financial instruments denominated in euros to Russian persons. The United Kingdom also introduced a limit on the amount of a deposit of no more than 50 thousand pounds for citizens of the Russian Federation. Sanctions were imposed against the Russian Direct Investment Fund. Financing of domestic oil and gas companies fell under the ban. BP exits Rosneft's capital.

Secondly, Americans and Europeans imposed a ban on the supply of high-tech products to Russia. Airbus refused to deliver its liners. The German concern Daimler Truck refused to cooperate with KAMAZ, there will be no more truck assembly at the joint venture. The Republic of Korea will not supply strategic materials to Russia. The UK has revoked a license to export high-tech products to our country. Massachusetts technological Institute (MIT) refused to cooperate with the center "Skoltech".

Thirdly, the airspace over the European Union was closed for Russian airlines. Mutually.

Fourthly, sectoral sanctions were imposed against the largest systemically important Russian banks, which immediately led to a sharp increase in the key rate by the Central Bank of the Russian Federation and a collapse in the mortgage and bank loans market. A number of financial institutions have already been disconnected from the SWIFT interbank payment system.

Fifthly, Russian TV channels began to close abroad, and Western Internet giants imposed restrictions on the use of their intellectual property for Russian individuals and legal entities.

At sixth, numerous sports and cultural events with the participation of Russia suffered from restrictive measures.

Seventh, for the first time, personal sanctions were imposed not only against the near-Kremlin oligarchs, but also against President Vladimir Putin personally and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

And this is clearly not the end. The military operation is just beginning and can last many weeks, or even more than one month. It is possible that anti-Russian sanctions will be further strengthened. Thus, it can be stated that a new “Iron Curtain” has been lowered in front of our country from the West, which no one is going to raise for sure.

And what is left for us to do now?

Empire-2 or Soyuz-2


As we said, there are very few options. It was decided to strangle our country economically, creating unbearable living conditions for the majority of the population. No more high-tech exports, the Americans and Europeans will still buy our oil and gas, but the volumes will continuously decrease as their new “green course” is implemented. The fundamental decision to stop using hydrocarbon raw materials arrived just in time. Coincidence?

Yes, China will buy Russian raw materials, but will certainly take advantage of the situation to knock out maximum discounts for itself. Nothing personal, just business. If things continue within the framework of the liberal paradigm that has proven its failure, our the economy awaits rapid degradation and collapse. Is it possible to avoid such a deplorable ending?

It is possible, but only if the approaches change. From a market economy with its "invisible hand" for the time being to move on to a planned one with state regulation. We need a speedy reindustrialization, in which we could be helped by China as a technology partner. And Russia needs Ukraine, all of it. Now this is not a matter of international prestige or national security for us, but of banal survival.

Ukraine is the aircraft-building, machine-building, shipbuilding, rocket-building, metallurgical and other enterprises that are still preserved there, which are urgently needed to restore the Russian industrial potential. These are the famous black soils. These are tens of millions of people (40 million in the best years) who are needed as a market for products. On the last point, I would like to draw attention.

It has long been calculated that in order to build a self-sufficient economy, about 400-500 million consumers are needed, preferably not the last beggars. So much is not typed even together in Russia, Belarus and Ukraine. This means an objective need for further expansion of the Russian sphere of influence and the struggle for new markets. We will have to take in the former post-Soviet republics and go further outward, colliding and competing, including by the most severe methods, with capitalist predators.

Much will depend on how exactly this will happen: in the Soviet or imperial style, but this is the only choice that remains before us. Otherwise, Russia is guaranteed rapid socio-economic degradation and, in the future, disintegration.

    It is somehow strange to start creating a superpower, to raise agriculture, to establish a non-primary, non-rental economy, only after foreign sanctions and threats.

      Here it is, just in our style. Nothing to do about.
      But we are again on our own road, which has always led us to victory.

        To what victory? By 1996, when the first results of privatization became visible? We are at a crossroads now. At an unstable point on the way. When any scenario is likely.

    It is somehow strange to be a Euro-American propagandist here, writing only bad things about Russia. It's strange to become such a downvoted, disrespectful person. This is how you need to lie under Uncle Sam.

    it is said very "strongly" about the "green course", did you learn from von der leyen and borrell? weather, standing the last couple of years, do not teach anything? Yes, and Russian sanctions have not really been introduced, but when the leadership of our country introduces them, then we will look at this very curtain, and who will be crushed. and yet, the imposed Western sanctions are destroying not only and not so much our economy as their economy.

    Your state planning in America-Europe is a compressible chain around your neck. And there will be a direct reaction of the Russian troops to external stimuli. Did you mean to say it? Tell us better about your European headquarters of patriotism? What is he? What are your working conditions there? What's the schedule?

      Take, for example, our wonderful NWF, from which they did not want to spend money on economic recovery during a pandemic. More than $300 billion of it is in the US. And participate in the development of their economy. The rest are in Japan and Western Europe. That is, in the NATO countries that took and blocked our access to these funds. How do you like this planning? Not only did this money not participate in the development of our economy, they developed the economy of a potential enemy, but even now they are not available to us. Is this also an element of state planning?

      And there will be a direct reaction of the Russian troops to external stimuli.

      A rather belated reaction, and very limited. In parallel with the negotiations. It would be nice to give an ultimatum to Zelensky about surrender. The positions of the 53rd brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were attacked by the limited forces of the LDNR militia, without assault and without front-line aviation. Like in 1941. Do we have 1 billion population?

    BP exits Rosneft's capital.

    It's very scary. Rosneft will now close for sure.
    Because oil stops pumping when BP exits capital.
    By the way, BP also wants to get money for this exit. For some reason, just slamming the door is not enough.

    It is not necessary to press so hard on being forced. The territory was already a superpower, but Lenin planted bombs under it everywhere, but they did not work. I had to return to capitalism. According to science, capitalism cannot exist without wars, conquests and profits. So no one forced them, they went along the path of history, like other countries - a seizure. There is a saying - to fight naked on a goal and grunt that the shirt is torn.

      What kind of nonsense? The superpower of agrarian Russia was made by Lenin and then comrade. Stalin with Beria.
      It was the capitalists who ruined the superpower of the USSR, tearing apart the people's property.

        A very bold statement for a person with three higher educations.
        Where did the capitalists come from in the USSR? And how did they tear apart the people's property?
        Or are you writing about some kind of your USSR here?

    The United Kingdom also introduced a limit on the amount of a deposit of no more than 50 thousand pounds for citizens of the Russian Federation.

    Well, thank God, £50 is fine with me. That would be a pound millionaire, he would be upset.

    Your habitual and only vile propaganda against Russia is out of place here. Your poor headquarters of euro-bots is now working for wear and tear. The echo of Euro-Moscow and the rain have already been closed, soon the darling(s) will cover you too.

    Rare solidarity against Russia. This was not the case even during WWII. During a special operation in Afghanistan, in the former SAR.

    All of the above - well, what do you want.
    At first they assured that the West and their presidents were lying, and then they took it and invaded.
    Do not respond - loss of face.
    You never know that the Presidents crunched hamburgers together, and Usmanov and K were the best (only the Indian was ahead of them) residents of England. Face loss.

    Interestingly - will the breweries that are in foreign hands on the Internet media be nationalized? So far, no. And McDonald's at 14 m - no, no.
    And then for 20 years they have been quietly scolded, but all in vain
