What price will Russia and its people pay for another victory over Nazism


A week and a half after the start of a special military operation to denazify and demilitarize Ukraine, it became obvious that Russia and its people would once again be forced to pay a high price for the victory over Nazism and big Western capital behind it. Let's see what we have already been deprived of from what seemed familiar “as a punishment”, and think about how we can now live on.


The list of foreign companies that completely stop or suspend cooperation with our country turned out to be very long. If we group them by industry, we get the following picture.

In the field of energy and extraction of other natural resources, British Petrolium, ExxonMobil, Shell withdrew from Russian projects, Fortum and Uniper stopped all new investment projects, Kinross Gold also suspended work in Russia.

In the field of transport, auto giants such as Audi, BMW, Ford Motors, General Motors, Jaguar Land Rover, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Volkswagen, Volvo, Skoda, Scania, Honda, Mazda, Toyota and the famous motorcycle manufacturer Harley Davidson announced the suspension of cooperation. .

In the aviation industry, the European concern Airbus refused to supply new aircraft to Russia, and the American Boeing Corporation stopped deliveries of parts and aircraft maintenance to domestic carriers.

In the area of technologies and telecommunications in our regiment also declined: OneWeb Corporation will suspend the launch of its satellites from Baikonur, AMD and Intel have suspended the supply of processors to Russia, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) has stopped supplying semiconductors to Russia, Nokia, HP, Dell, Ericsson, SAP, Oracle and Siemens have also suspended deliveries of their products.

Western payment systems Mastercard, American Express and Visa, which have become familiar to everyone, stopped working with Russian legal entities, Paypal and Paysera, Google Pay and BTC-Alpha recouped directly on the Russians, banning them from new registrations, servicing accounts and transfers. The entertainment service OnlyFans also hit hard on the hands, limiting accounts and stopping payments to cards of Russian banks.

Stores of such famous brands as iHerb, Yoox Net-a-Porter Group, Nike, Matches, ASOS, H&M, Bolt, Insydium and Jobble have suspended their work.

The delivery services FedEx, UPS, DHL, Cyprus Post, Maersk, CMA CGM, MSC, Shipco, Hapag-Lloyd, Ocean Network Express and Yang Ming announced the suspension of their work in Russia.

And this is by no means a complete list: many familiar foods and drinks will also disappear from our market, cooperation in the field of sports, culture and cinema has been broken. It is likely that this will not be the end of the matter, and sanctions will increase as the military operation to denazify Ukraine develops.

Everything, the old life is over, a new, more difficult one begins. Now you need to calm down and try to understand how to live on. And for this, we first need to figure out how we have come to such a point that, for example, we can be left without civil aircraft at all.

Sanctions strikes hit all significant sectors of the Russian economics, where Western TNCs have settled so freely. But who made the decision on Russia's hasty accession to the WTO and the opening of our domestic market for them? Who promoted, in particular, the products of Airbus and Boeing to the detriment of the domestic aircraft industry and instead of the Tu-334 and Tu-214 ready for production, pushed through the projects of "constructors" from imported components, which now, under the sanctions, there is nothing to assemble from? Who has been saying for decades that we do not need any of our own machines, and that we will buy everything we need abroad for petrodollars?

This was done by our systemic liberals sitting in the government and in the leadership of state corporations, as well as in other significant positions. So, maybe, since the liberal idea has proved its inconsistency in practice, it's time to ask them all to leave? Well, these people cannot, purely physiologically, manage the economy, which has been isolated by their beloved West, in the way it should be done. Just at this crossing it is necessary to change the horses, otherwise we will not go far. The country needs people with statist thinking, and not any "liberda".

Could we have avoided the shortages and decline in living standards that we are likely to face? Probably it was possible. I have to quote myself in ARTICLES dated January 30, 2022, when everything was still relatively safe:

Playing by the rules of the West means deliberately dooming yourself to a technological lag. China owes much of its development to simply ignoring patent infringement claims and forcing foreign companies to form joint ventures and share licenses. Can we use the Chinese experience?

Have to. If Russia is banned from supplying critically important high-tech products, then we will simply have to start copying foreign technologies. If our country throws off the restrictions imposed on it in the field of intellectual property, this will allow it to make a real leap forward. At the same time, of course, access to the West will be closed to domestic products, which will entail the need to create a capacious domestic market by expanding it. After the closing of the technological "iron curtain" on the other side, Russia will have to "recapture" Ukraine from the United States and the European Union, "crush" Belarus, Kazakhstan and other countries of the post-Soviet space, starting an active expansionist policies and outside the CIS. This will not be a matter of "imperial" ambitions, but of banal survival.

Russia's powerful technological and economic rise will be the best response to Western sanctions. Therefore, it would be smarter to start implementing it not under the conditions of an already imposed embargo, but proactively: by hiring highly paid foreign specialists, sending our own abroad to train and study, purchasing the necessary equipment and opening joint ventures with Chinese partners.

This is to the question of whether our forecasts and predictions come true or not. Smart and far-sighted people already in 2014 understood how everything would end, calling for preparations for both the inevitable armed clash with Ukraine and the subsequent inevitable embargo.

Does that mean it's all gone now? No, although a lot of time and opportunities were mediocrely lost. Russia will now have to turn into an empire again or go bankrupt and turn into warring with each other specific principalities and "sultanates". That's all our selection.

    First of all - immediately! - to throw out the pro-Western liberda from the highest, and indeed all, authorities and management of the financial and economic component. Get out of all sorts of IMF, WTO, WHO and other similar globalist husks. The authorities should immediately turn their faces to the people, and not to the Russian crooked moneybags. And (long overdue) some key points in the current semi-colonial Constitution need to be changed.

    Will Coca-Cola and McDonald's with burgers disappear? I do not believe!
    And we are still missing something. If the West forbade Russia to use dollars and euros, then for what currency does Gazprom now send gas to the West through Ukraine and other branches? In connection with the new realities, it is probably necessary to sell for rubles or metallic gold. But so far, nothing has been heard about the new form of settlement. Then it turns out that Russia has nothing concrete for the supply of oil and gas from the West? I would like to know more about this.

      Yes, it is interesting to know what accounts and under what conditions payment is made for energy carriers constantly coming from Russia to the West ... and whether payment is made for them, in general. Here's what I understood from reading various sources: THE WEST HAVE ALREADY PAYED for the volumes of deliveries and Gazprom now, simply makes deliveries according to these already paid volumes, fulfills the terms of the contract. BUT! There is a misunderstanding: where is this money that went to pay for supplies? Either they have already been withdrawn to Western funds, where they have been successfully and blocked by the West, or they are still in Western banks, where ... they may or may not be blocked, as there are misunderstandings with the so-called "exceptions" from the sanctions rules for the money that went to pay for resources from Russia necessary for the functioning of the Western economy. So, if they are on accounts in Western banks on "special conditions", then theoretically the possibility of their use by Russia remains, but there are restrictions and I still cannot find any. Most likely, Russia can use this money only for the purchase of products and goods that are not subject to sanctions and are allowed by the EU. If this money is in Russia, then they cannot cash it out, and it is forbidden even to use it inside Russia, and even more so to use it for transactions with third countries, for example with China, since transactions with the Euro are prohibited by the EU for Russia. Something like this. hi

        Well, here's the latest news:

        The pumping of gas through Poland to Germany via the Yamal-Europe gas pipeline stopped on the morning of March 3, despite the reservation of capacities by Gazprom, TASS writes, citing data from the gas transport operator Gascade.

        The flow of gas through the pipeline in the forward direction stopped at nine in the morning Moscow time. At the night auction on March 3, Gazprom booked capacities for the whole day. The volume of 3,7 million cubic meters per hour was offered at the auction, about 16,7 percent of the capacity turned out to be in demand.

        Gas prices in Europe rose to $2300. The growth in the cost of April futures by the close of trading on the previous day was almost 20 percent.

        That is, Gazprom began to trade on the spot market for short futures, and not only deliver on long contracts - there is no data on where the money goes for these deliveries.

    From the point of view of breaking, already very strong, global ties, everything looks very painful. You can't argue here. Fact is fact. But, if you look at history, after complete devastation and the absence of everything from the Volga to the western borders of the USSR in 1945, our country managed to build a cosmodrome and launch the world's first satellite. Maybe I'm wrong, but at the moment we are in a much more vanilla state compared to those years. We can do everything, the main thing is competent leadership and local motivation. Now is the period of zeroing everything and the opportunity to build something new. I would be glad if our "elites" reset mentally and turn towards their country.

From article to article half-truth but with the obligatory throwing of firewood into the fire. Why was it so modestly silent about joint work on a long-haul aircraft with China? and the emphasis was placed on obsolete Tu, which will not produce more than 100 pieces a year, or even will not be released outside the country? But what about the response to sanctions, which could be much more painful? If the Kremlin would not have been ready, he would not have started chasing Ukrainians.

          I'm not sure that Lenin's works have not been used in the current moment.

          Offtopic, but it suddenly occurred to me that the president was nullified due to the fact that, under his leadership, we actually lost Ukraine and he probably decided for himself that he should return it. Let's just say - he took such a vow and responsibility.

            And what has Russia lost in the "face" of Ukraine? No one will betray and hit in the back? Does the option that Putin decided to put an end to this misunderstanding does not come? Otherwise, we will continue to receive from the "brothers" all sorts of sagaidachs, mazeps, shukhevychs, poroshenkos, etc.... Questions later appeared for ALL supposedly pro-Russian leaders of Ukrainians (from the moment they were bought from the Poles). ALL of them, if they did not betray, then frankly spoiled Russia.

          Russia's participation in the long-haul airliner is limited to the manufacture of wings and the PD-35 engine, which does not yet exist in iron. The very beginning of such a project, in the presence of its beautiful IL-96, is another sabotage.
          The Tu-214 is an excellent aircraft with a good PS-90A engine, which is also used on the presidential Il-96-300. It was artificially made uncompetitive after Russia joined the WTO, when they introduced new environmental standards against our engines. But our liberals did not do anything, starting to buy Boeings and Airbuses.
          The Tu-214 has long had ALL certificates and permits for flights around the world. The MS-21 does not have them.
          For the MS-21, there are no ready-made imported avionics, for the Tu-214 it has its own, the aircraft is actually produced in a small series due to artificial restrictions on demand for it.
          The industry is not able to start quickly and produce a lot of MS-21 to replace the dropped 400-800 aircraft. As I wrote a long time ago, the output is in the parallel production of Tu-214 and MS-21. Tu-214 first on PS-90A, then on PD-14. MS-21 as soon as the component base is ready. And then it will be long.

          But what about the response to sanctions, which could be much more painful?

          They will survive, but we are not a fact.

          Shall we change horses now? Let's do like Lenin, turn Russia from a country of a winner into a war into a loser?

          Lenin and Stalin made a real superpower out of the devastated Republic of Ingushetia, which defeated the Third Reich and finished off Japan, destroying its Kwantung Army. With the Romanovs against Germany, the country would have held out for a couple of weeks at most.

            The new environmental standards apply to all engines, regardless of the country of manufacture. New engines under development will be marginally up to possible new standards.
            The presidential plane flies because it is presidential. Even if it is steam powered.
            Why there will be not Tu, but a joint board with China has been explained more than once.
            Lenin signed the surrender to the DEFEATED Germany and plunged the country into a civil war for years. And then tales were told about the illiterate population and the backwardness of industry under the Empire. Apparently this is your goal in all articles?

              Not at all. The introduction of standards through the WTO was directed specifically against the Russian auto industry, and our liberals only played along with them.

              The presidential plane flies because it is presidential. Even if it is steam powered.

              It flies because the IL-76 is a good aircraft with good engines. Even if they are not needed in the skies over Europe, there are no problems using them over Russia.

              Why there will be not Tu, but a joint board with China has been explained more than once.

              Firstly, IL-96, not Tu. Secondly, I have already explained why this sabotage is against the interests of Russia.

              Lenin signed the surrender to the DEFEATED Germany and plunged the country into a civil war for years.

              Nonsense. The civil war began with the performance of the Czechoslovak Corps, which was subordinate to the French army.

              And then tales were told about the illiterate population and the backwardness of industry under the Empire. Apparently this is your goal in all articles?

              My goal is to make sure that there are fewer stupid things in the minds of people that they later broadcast on serious cabbage soup.

              do you stubbornly run into reciprocal rudeness, using your immunity?
              I'm not going to stoop to that level.

    what some fail to understand is that Ukraine's problem is purely geopolitical. Ukraine is a large fascist anti-Russian state in Russia's soft underbelly. Today there are about 15 million Russians living in Ukraine who are being pressured by the regime to assimilate Ukrainianism and anti-Russianism. In Ukraine has everything it takes to become a regional economic and nuclear power in the long term. for now, imagine a Nazi future nuclear power ''in the soft belly'' of Russia with NATO troops; the cost of our inaction is much higher than the cost of military suppression of the Nazi state. what now what needs to be done is to take pieces of Novorossia, dismantle the military infrastructure of the fascist state and leave. We don’t need a big war, after Kharkov and Melitopol Odessa should be the last city liberated. As for western Ukraine, yes there is a chance to station NATO troops there, but it will not survive in long term

    When will media alarmists pay "their price"?
    Yes, there will be consequences for the economy, but exaggerating them and savoring the details, in my opinion, has become a favorite pastime for some.
    The list of "misfortunes" that have befallen us is endless, if you do not delve into the details.

    It is not clear what is meant by the definition of the work of automakers in Russia.
    BMW, Volkswagen, Skoda, Mazda, Toyota close factories in Russia? So after all, the same Mazda sends engines assembled in Russia to Japan. Are they punishing themselves? In general, specifics are needed.
    The departure of General Motors, Ford Motors, Jaguar, Land Rover, Porsche will undoubtedly be a blow to a narrow layer of brand connoisseurs yes At GAZ, they are probably already opening champagne about Ford's departure, now this is their market.

    In the field of energy and extraction of other natural resources, British Petrolium, ExxonMobil, Shell withdrew from Russian projects, Fortum and Uniper stopped all new investment projects, Kinross Gold also suspended work in Russia.

    Yes, BP, under pressure from the authorities, abandoned business in Russia, it does not seem that they are happy.

    In the field of technology and telecommunications, our regiment has also declined: OneWeb Corporation will suspend the launches of its satellites from Baikonur

    Naturally suspend yes where should she go if Roskosmos canceled the launch?

    Moscow. 2nd of March. INTERFAX.RU - Roskosmos will cancel the launch of OneWeb satellites from Baikonur, scheduled for March 5, if it does not receive guarantees that they will not be used for military purposes, said the head of the state corporation Dmitry Rogozin.
    "We also believe that the real guarantee that OneWeb will work exclusively for civilian purposes is the withdrawal from the shareholders of the British government. If this does not happen, we will not accept any guarantees," Rogozin added.

    The creators of OnlyFans can post information about themselves, doing all sorts of things that won't be used on other social networks, but still, the app wasn't made solely for that purpose. In fact, there are creators on the site who don't offer adult material - artists, fitness instructors, chefs, and others who want to use the site to monetize their content. However, given the site's lack of restrictions, OnlyFans has quickly become home to "peak" workers and models who share 18+ content.

    OnlyFans is home to fitness trainers, writers, artists, chefs and more. But this is only one side of the coin. Because OnlyFans allows people to post content that is not allowed on other sites such as Instagram, Facebook, and TikTok, it is also widely used by people in the peak and amateur pornography industry. They upload videos and images, thus interacting with their fans through direct messages.

    In the aviation industry, the European concern Airbus refused to supply new aircraft to Russia, and the American Boeing Corporation stopped deliveries of parts and aircraft maintenance to domestic carriers.

    Will there be no new deliveries of aircraft from Airbus? Great, that means they will start buying our planes. There will be a gradual replacement by domestic aircraft.
    Boeing denied maintenance to domestic carriers? So as far as I remember, some of them are still standing and they are not allowed to fly. Am I missing something and the situation has changed? And yes, as far as I understand, most of the aircraft are leased and often from foreign companies. I doubt that the contract says that air carriers independently look for spare parts and service aircraft. This is a blow to companies. Those, in turn, will run to the courts with claims against Boeing. And things are not going well for them anyway. In general, you need to look at the details.

    Who promoted, in particular, the products of Airbus and Boeing to the detriment of the domestic aircraft industry and instead of the Tu-334 and Tu-214 ready for production, pushed through the projects of "constructors" from imported components, which now, under the sanctions, there is nothing to assemble from?

    Fairy tales again? smile Do you think a "domestic" aircraft with a Ukrainian engine would be preferable in this situation? So think "smart and far-sighted people understood how it would end in 2014"? laughing

        And where did you get the idea that in the coming years it is necessary to replace 700-800 boards? When is the coming years? Where does the number come from? What rush are you talking about? The reason for the hysteria is not clear request

    As for the internal enemy, I think that soon, of course, the half-forgotten concept of "saboteur" will be revived. To be filled, this time, with real, concrete meaning.
    Too much time (10 years!) Under Yeltsin, the country was open for plowing to the West and its special services. One must think - they diligently, and with fiction, worked at that time. Multi-level agents and a network of "agents of influence", moreover, self-sustaining. We see the results of their work in higher and secondary education, the upbringing of a new generation, culture, and anywhere else!
    It's time for us to start cleaning our own house.

      And who is the enemy and pest? Who is the fifth column anyway? Why did the fight against terrorism on the distant approaches change dramatically into a fight on the near approaches against Nazism? Was Nazism dropped from a NATO plane the night before yesterday?

    Well, this is purely in the spirit of Russia - at first, help to nurture Nazism from neighbors

    Can you elaborate on how Russia helped feed Nazism?

    As far as I understand, Russia is to blame. Residents of the former Ukraine have nothing to do with it. Victims.
    Russia nurtured the Nazis, Russia in 2014 did not free from the Nazis.
    Now Russia is foolishly dancing on a rake.
    Residents of the former Ukraine discuss Russia's mistakes and condemn Russia. What, they say, Russia is stupid.

    As a result of the termination or suspension of the work of foreign companies, of which there are a great many in the Russian Federation, the chain of industrial relations is broken, leads to the dismissal of employees or a reduction in the number, and an increase in unemployment.
    The decision on Russia's accession to the WTO and the opening of the domestic market for TNCs was a logical consequence of the coup d'etat, the collapse of the USSR and the restoration of capitalism in the Russian Federation.
    “Our systemic liberals, sitting in the government and in the leadership of state corporations, as well as in other significant positions,” like their colleagues around the world, are hired executors and conductors of the political and economic interests of the owners of the “shipping newspaper factories”.
    The only difference is that Vladimir Putin was able to put the owners of the “shipping newspaper factories” under the control of the state and work for the interests of the state, as the Soviet government did in its time, moving to the New Economic Policy. The only difference is that then, the New Economic Policy was based on the party and the dictatorship of the proletariat, as is the case in the PRC. This is the most important necessary condition, without which the politics of the era of V.V. Putin is historically doomed - sooner or later, one way or another, big capital will get out of state control and become Above the state, as in the entire “civilized” world.
    The indicators of the decline in the standard of living that we are likely to expect are the termination or suspension of the work of foreign companies, the ban on foreign investment, the increase in the key rate by the central bank, which inevitably leads to an increase in the cost of loans and suffocation of the manufacturing sector against the backdrop of an erroneous policy of dedollarization and an increase in the share of the Euro, which in total terms, they make up about half of the 640 billion gold reserves on which sanctions are imposed and which will never be returned in full - they will calculate and deduct their costs associated with sanctions, you see, and we will have to. You have to rely only on reserves placed in the PRC and gold on the territory of the Russian Federation, as well as on various kinds of “gray” schemes. The import substitution program is comparable to the Stalinist industrialization program, but again requires huge financial investments and foreign investments.
    In its sanctions policy, the United States went “All in”. If the Russian Federation survives, then the United States will lose the status of world hegemon, and if not, then the Russian Federation will cease to exist in its present form. The head of the government, Mr. Mishustin, said that we can do it, we can only hope that it will be so.

    Many river-sea vessels under the Russian flag are equipped with Sulzer and Wärtsilä main and auxiliary engines. Wärtsilä supplies electronic charts and manuals, cargo pumps for tankers. The reason for the order from Sulzer and Wärtsilä is the complete absence of after-sales service by Russian engine manufacturers. If Sulzer and Wärtsilä can deliver spare parts to any port in the world, then Russian manufacturers will not even do this to a Russian port.

    Dear Mr. Marzhetsky, I always read your publications with interest. In many respects I agree with you, although I confess sometimes doubts arise. Well, that's probably right, there is always a place for doubts.
    Not so long ago, an article was published on the pages of this site: "Palladium Export Ban: How Russia Can Respond to Western Sanctions", I became interested, but really, how can Russia respond? And it turned out (judging by the materials found on the Internet), very tough and effective, and at the same time not particularly painful for our own economy, such as shutting off a gas valve.
    It turns out that only two countries of South Africa and Russia export palladium, and almost equally. Only almost all palladium from South Africa goes to the USA, and Russian to Europe and China. It turns out that the platinum group metals, platinum-palladium-rhodium, are included in the composition of engine catalysts. These metals are everywhere in the car. In relay sockets and thermostats; fuel level sensors; , voltage regulators; car ignition systems, and it turns out that if Russia does not supply these metals to Europe, then the entire auto industry in the West will simply stop. Not a single car will leave the gates of car factories.
    In addition, the production of microchips and all electronics without these metals will also stop.
    But Russia continues to supply these platinum group metals. Why ?
    Will you try to answer this question?

    The issue considered seems to be relevant, but the reasons for how and when we have come to this are too biased, apparently because the author draws conclusions from someone else's words. Without going into details, it is an indisputable fact that the aviation industry began to be destroyed back in the 80s and completed in the 90s, the army was almost ruined at the same time, the defense industry was destroyed by the first and last allied president, light industry never really worked in the USSR (general shortages, poor quality and the pursuit of imported clothes have been realities since the 70s), agriculture was barely breathing in the USSR and was in agony in the 90s. And electronics in the USSR was considered almost pseudoscience until the 50s, and then they bought Western computers through third countries and copied them under the proud name of the EU computer, the sanctions were already there. So the legacy that was inherited by the beginning of the 2000s was still something. And it must be admitted that from that moment the country stopped degrading and began to grow, and significant. I strongly doubt that in just twenty years it was possible to do better with such initial data. Although there are still plenty of problems, and any color revolution within the country will again greatly slow down everything and throw it back.

    Yes, now it is possible, and indeed necessary, to produce everything without bothering with patents, licenses and all sorts of rights to someone's "intellectual property".
  24. The Government of the Russian Federation allocates 1 trillion rubles for the purchase of shares. In my opinion, this is the first half of Rockefeller's motto: "Buy low, sell high." Russia will buy shares from world sharks for a low price and increase its economic sovereignty. Or maybe all this is V.V. Planned by Putin?! And "everything is going according to plan"? And we can beat the West? A year later, we are waiting for a dollar at 50 rubles.

    Gentlemen commentators, are you out of your mind?
    What are you happy about?
    These companies that stopped working in Russia, they were staffed by excellent Russian specialists who are already out of work today. These are usually highly paid employees. Who paid for mortgages, cars, restaurants, shops, services. This means that, along the chain, a whole layer of the solvent population has been destroyed, which will affect the entire chain of services and consumption. This means that employees of cafes and canteens will not receive their salaries, they will close, they will have no one to feed, this means that they will not buy cars and salons will have to be closed along with the staff, clothing stores will be empty, because. Tajik employees of housing and communal services will not buy clothes in stores. The children of these employees will not want to go to the cinema and take their girls to cafes. In paid clinics, they will not be able to be treated, because. no policy to pay. Yes, and do not forget about taxes, gasoline, etc. What taxes does a Tajik employee of a housing and communal services and a highly paid employee of a Western company pay?

    The answer is on the surface - because the refusal to supply raw materials (not only platinum) is almost a shot in the head. The economy and the budget are already under enormous pressure. Export is beneficial to any state. And the meaning of stopping the export will appear only in case of refusal or inability of the recipient to pay for it, i.e. in situations where the next step is only general mobilization. Of course, you can still refuse to supply if the export item is a very small part of the income, but this is not about us yet.

    A holy place is never empty. These excellent specialists, having already considerable experience, will create their own companies, replacing the former ones in the absence of competition. There are already many examples, and this is not the first day under sanctions. There are all the possibilities for this, but there is not enough implementation. But not everything will work out right away.

    A very smart, educated person, yes, who still has a broad outlook, would not have written this article in which he describes punishments from the independent actions of the country in which he lives. It's simple. intimidating those who do not have all your virtues. And in the end, he impotently declares that Russia has no choice. Except between one failure and another.

    Does that mean it's all gone now? No, although a lot of time and opportunities were mediocrely lost. Russia will now have to turn into an empire again or go bankrupt and turn into warring with each other specific principalities and "sultanates". That's all our selection.
