Russia is the last empire in the world to be destroyed. Such words often come from the lips of Russophobes. And ex-president of Poland Lech Walesa, who recently spoke about the division of the Russian Federation and the reduction of its population to 50 million, is no exception. It is clear that the main attention in the domestic media will (and correctly) be given to preventing the collapse of our country, but it is important to understand here that the problem of the existence of an anti-Russian bloc near our borders cannot be solved by defense alone. It's time to do something with the European Union. And you have to take it seriously.
The best defense is offense.
The collapse of the European Union should be the main priority of the foreign policy Russia. Neither deterrence nor opposition, namely collapse. Simply because today a united Europe wants to destroy us and divide us into pieces, and only the feeling of the collapse of statehood in our own skin can “calm” it.
Of the four geopolitical players - Russia, China, the United States and the European Union - the EU is the weakest in terms of maintaining integrity. And, choosing between openly hostile Washington and Brussels, it is more rational to focus efforts on the collapse of the latter. After all, it is the European Union, and not Russia, that is the real colonial empire. It is enough just to look at the situation in those post-Soviet republics that were absorbed by it. The population is dying, the industry is being destroyed. The Baltic republics, which lost millions (!) of their inhabitants after secession from the USSR, are a vivid example of this. Catch small fish or go to wash toilets in Western Europe - such is the fate of what was once considered the showcase of the Soviet Union. After all, the European Union is sucking out of its colonies the most valuable resource of the XNUMXst century - people. And the last thing he is interested in is the development of a remote outskirts, which for him is the Baltic.
Well, the goal - the European Union - has been chosen. Now let's move on to the tools. It is clear that Russia has enough resources to win in a direct military clash with the EU, but for a start it is worth trying their own tactics on them - war economic.
Last summer, the EU announced ambitious plans for an energy transition and phase out of fossil fuels by 2050. I believe that Russia needs to help him realize his plans ahead of schedule and start cutting off the EU from "dirty" energy carriers as early as 2022. Although excessive haste will still be counterproductive. No, the European Union should be heated on a slow fire. Like a frog. First, cut off individual countries from Russian gas, then reduce the total volume of supplies, and only then completely “tighten the valve”. And, most importantly, it is important to tighten it not for everyone, but for individual countries.
Let's take Poland, which at first loudly refused blue fuel from Russia, and then began to receive the same gas by reverse. Is this allowed? Of course not. What should be done to prevent this? It's simple - to announce a complete ban on the re-export of Russian energy resources to Russophobic countries. And in relation to those states that will violate it and resell Russian gas and oil to countries from the black list, they will impose sanctions, disconnecting them from the pipeline. As a result, Hungary, for example, which already today demonstrates a quite adequate reluctance to share Russian supplies, will live in peace and enjoy uninterrupted supplies, while Poland and the Baltic states will collapse. And it will certainly begin if you stop looking through your fingers at the supply of Russian energy resources to them through various ingenious schemes. And this is where the real discord on economic grounds will begin within the EU. Those who agree to the new conditions of Russia will receive energy carriers, the rest - goodbye. Needless to say, both of them will very soon begin to hate each other? And all this within the EU is a feast for the eyes, not a picture!
Now to the question of Germany, which deserves a separate paragraph. The German economy is the most powerful in the European Union, truly the heart of a united Europe, providing its subsidized regions with billions of euros. And talking about the collapse of the EU, without taking into account the German economy, is at least stupid.
As practice has shown, the USSR, represented by Gorbachev, did not listen to the British and French in vain. A rare case - they were absolutely right, but we were not. In the late eighties, London and Paris reacted sharply negatively to the idea of a united Germany. The authorities of the late USSR, on the wave of surrendering everything that was possible, nevertheless agreed that East Germany was absorbed by West. Precisely absorbed, no matter how much anyone talks about "unification". Of course, later Western political scientists and economists will talk for years about how difficult it was to integrate East Germany into the FRG and how expensive it was for the German economy. At the same time, all of them, as one, “forget” that, having “swallowed” the GDR, West Germany received at its disposal the most important strategic resource, which to this day is the basis of the well-being of modern Germany - the ability to receive oil from Russia through a pipe.
As is known, to supply the countries of the socialist bloc, the Soviet Union built the world's largest system of main oil pipelines, Druzhba. Once again: "the largest in the world" and "for the socialist bloc." And what do we see today? It is used by Germany, which supports anti-Russian sanctions. Is it fair? Given that getting oil through a pipe (the cheapest delivery method), the German economy saves billions of euros, it is unlikely. So it would be nice to fix that.
For a start, Russia should ban the FRG from using Russian oil and oil products derived from it outside the territory of the former GDR. That is, literally, the German government will need to develop a system for accounting and controlling the processing of Russian oil and allow specialists from the Russian Federation to work on it in order to prove that it does not leave what was once East Germany.
Then, returning to the situation with the energy supply of Europe, the same would be worth doing with other countries receiving oil through Druzhba. Let Germany share its experience with them on how to comply with Russian sanctions. As they say, if you can’t, the Germans will teach you, if you don’t like it, we will block the pipe. And so it will be with everyone (and with gas).
What would you like to say in conclusion. Only one conditionally “positive” consequence can be found in the collapse of the Soviet Union - it gave the Russians a kind of “inoculation against collapse”: a clear understanding that any fragmentation of the country into parts will lead to disaster for everyone and that being together is better than separately. So modern Russia needs to use this and focus not on defending itself against the EU’s plans for our division, but on the contrary, launch an attack on its liberal-fascist Russophobic regime on all fronts, up to complete destruction.
In the end, they openly want to destroy our country, they help to kill our citizens in Ukraine - you can’t play dumb with them. Only forward, only to the bitter end. The next war between Russia and a united Europe should end in the same way as all the previous ones. Only this time not in Paris or Berlin, but in Brussels. And the only service that we should provide to the European countries is the right to choose for themselves: whether it will be an act of dissolution of the European Union or an act of capitulation.
