Bloomberg: Putin's career is a warning to Xi Jinping


The Russian leadership in general and the head of state of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin lack "freshness" of thought. This is the age-old problem of long reign. Such a long and successful career can serve as an example and a warning to other leaders. Bloomberg columnist Clara Ferreira Marquez writes about this.


The head of Russia is 70 years old. He is celebrating his anniversary at a difficult time. Chinese leader Xi Jinping is only a few months younger than Putin and is also poised for an unprecedented third term. China was created by Mao Zedong precisely to prevent excesses of power and excessive centralization. While the abolition of the two-term limit in 2018 lifted important restrictions on top office, 2022 will thus deal a devastating blow and mark a formal return to personalistic rule.

As the observer writes, despite the ongoing politicians the parallels between Putin and Chinese leader Xi Jinping are completely different, Marquez believes. Putin is a charismatic ruler, Xi is a modest communist. Russia can afford conflict with the West, while China is completely dependent on its markets.

Russia is a major oil producer losing revenue from the green transition, China is an importer already benefiting

writes Marquez.

But she also finds similarities. The two world leaders are truly friends through the vicissitudes of fate and the trials that befell them at a young age. Therefore, the career of the elder Putin is a warning for the younger Xi, with all the possible consequences for China. economic the consequences.

A warning is not a forecast. China has always received cautionary lessons from Russia. The changes that will take place in the coming weeks will give a clearer picture of the future.

    Well ... The share of truth and common sense in the conclusions of the observer are clearly visible.
    However, I would not focus too much attention on the age of GDP.
    After all, the point is not in him, but in the fact that the President is "cooked" for too long in the same "broth" while softening and becoming too susceptible to the influence of the environment, the environment, the "close circle".

    Well, what kind of "circle" is there, judging by the actual lack of necessary measures to influence the course of the NWO (mobilization does not count, since this measure is rather belated and is only the result of miscalculations and negligence) is probably clear ...

    China has become great in 25 years, and what did Putin boast about in 25 years that the Russian Federation became dependent on China and Iran?

      Suppose China and the Russian Federation have mutual dependence. In some ways, Russia depends on China (for example, microelectronics), and the Celestial Empire depends on the Russian Federation, for example, in the supply of engines to PLA Air Force fighters.
      You are "running in", but you are silent, or you simply don't know that the USA ( fellow ) critically depends on the supply of chips from Taiwan, by the way, also - China, only "island" ...

    Putin is the president of Russia, the Americans who chose Biden work at Bloomberg. Let them teach him how to cook cabbage soup, and the Russians themselves will figure out who to elect.
    Moreover, residents of the regions that joined Russia indirectly voted for Putin, because he rules Russia.
    Happy birthday to Vladimir Vladimirovich and long summer...

    in this case, it’s easier for the West. The elected power is there, in fact, only the managers of the real power, world state corporations, clans, and the course after the elections changes only tactically depending on the world situation
    i.e., regardless of the quality of the elected elite, they are not threatened by a change in management, a revolution in power
    in particular, in Russia everything is simpler and, alas, not so reliable, completely opposite movements and directions are possible after a change of leader, up to collapse or civil war
    the same example of ukrusia, there was the ussr but the west changed leaders, politicians and that’s all, there is neither ussr nor a tendency to some kind of stabilization
    the world, the European part of it, a liberal model is being imposed, in which, again, power over countries passes under the control of global elites
    Russia got into this by losing control over many things, Deripaska's aluminum, savings incomes are sailing to the West, boards of directors in many subdivisions of the economy are made up of Western proteges, and statistical Western Sharags that control the turnover of our industries and departments
    the article is silent about the reverse of the medal deliberately, since it is mainly directed to the layman, whose dreams are full of a refrigerator and the stability of his short earthly presence

    Freshness of thought

    – The Chinese Communist Party brings together representatives of different social classes, and the largest one is the Proletarians, who make up the vast majority of the party. Along with the proletarians, the ranks of the Communist Party include many wealthy people like Jack Ma and his like, thus uniting the whole society into a single monolith and, like an iron hoop on a wooden barrel, pulls it together and does not allow it to crumble into separate components.
    In intra-party elections at all levels, there is huge intra-party competition, where the outcome of the elections is determined not by the purse of candidates, as in the West, but by the support of the majority, which is made up of the Proletariat - this is the difference from the West and the essence of the dictatorship of the proletariat, and the elections themselves serve as a kind of litmus test of social trends and give " freshness of thought.

    - in the Russian Federation, unlike the PRC, the system of state structure and administration was created according to Western patterns, where “freshness of thought” is assigned to a multi-party system and free elections, and the multi-party system itself is designed to split the class solidarity and unity of the proletarians.
    The multi-party system is designed to express not the Class, but the Clan interests of the ruling class, one or another of its groupings that directly or through various “public” funds sponsor, buy and promote their lobbyists in elections, such as “new people”, who express their rotten “freshness” thoughts” of their employers.
    The essence and farce of such elections is that the proletarians are allowed once every five years to choose a collar around their neck through formally free democratic elections, and all democracy is reduced to the size of a wallet.

    The People's Republic of China, like the USSR, was created in a bloody struggle with the imperialist powers and a civil war under the leadership of Mao Zedong.
    Unlike the USSR and the Russian Federation, the PRC does not rewrite and respect its history.
    The abolition of the two-term limit is an indisputable step backwards, but as a possible justification, one can accept the growing tension in the political and economic situation in the world associated with the growth of the economic power of the PRC and the redistribution of spheres of influence. In a similar situation, the VKPb-CPSU also refused to satisfy I.V. Stalin's self-withdrawal from his post, and, as history has shown, this was justified.

    The Russian Federation is forced to go into conflict with the West in order to maintain its integrity, and its vast territory and natural resources, scientific and industrial potential allow it to withstand the struggle.
    The PRC, unlike the Russian Federation, does not have sufficient natural resources for an open confrontation with the West and is forced to show miracles of diplomacy so as not to undermine its economy and thus provoke social instability, which is what the West is trying to achieve.

      Sure sounds nice. However, the quality and quantity of human potential is much more important than the "vast territory and resources" that cannot be protected without this potential. At the words about "scientific and production potential" it becomes simply bitter

      Probably these are the main words in this article. It can be assumed that we are talking about the official entry of NATO into the war with Russia, expected by Bloomberg. The gas pipeline is blown up - the first move by the Anglo-Saxons is made

      If we are ready to act directly on the master of this war and force him to retreat, this must be done right now, before the start of hostilities. War is much easier to prevent than to force it to end, especially at the very beginning.
      Let me remind you that the war with NATO, according to the plan of the Anglo-Saxons, should lead to the death of Russia. In any case, the States, which have taken a position on finishing off, will not give us a chance to survive.

      There is one more thing.

      Therefore, the career of the elder Putin is a warning to the younger Xi, with all the possible economic consequences for China.

      These words say that indeed - the States plan to first completely deal with Russia and enslave Europe. Only then, having become even stronger, will they deal with China. He has time to think. Russia no longer has it

      If we assume that the Anglo-Saxons have been controlling our power and our nuclear weapons since 1992, they can already open new theaters in the North-West, which, by the way, according to the data given on this resource, has been exposed by the movement of troops to Ukraine. The article is titled: "FP: Russia exposed the entire western border, withdrawing about 80% of the troops."

      If the horses are carried straight into the pool, you need to be a donkey so as not to change them at the crossing

              The answer is:
              We made a mistake that we can rely on our own power.
              The government deceived everyone by creating a "Potemkin village", hiding the true state of affairs in the country for 20 years, and clearing its political field. The result is something that the country should have been able to fix easily 20 years ago. became a way of life for her.
              That is why Yuri Boldyrev writes about this in the article “You have to pay for political incapacity” https://svpressa.ru/politic/article/341038/

              For this, all approaches to power were walled up and concreted, so that no other idea, no other way of life, development and movement into the future, except for the stupid eating away of the heritage of the ancestors, could constitute an alternative to the consistent degradation of the country that has been going on for three decades.
              It remains to ask a naive question: so if we, the people of Russia, paid and continue to pay tribute in one form or another, then this is a tribute for what?
              Obviously: for our resignation, inability to self-organize and consent to the usurpation of power by those who have the opportunity to pass off their obligations to external forces as obligations of the state, that is, our obligations with you

              So, Sergey Yuryevich, in such a section

    The Crimean bridge did not come as a surprise to many. Two days before Putin's birthday, my wife and I thought what gift the SBU and CIA would present? We agreed on the Crimean bridge. But you won’t call the FSB, they will quickly send a carriage.
