Why "Putin's Long State" Faced a Systemic Crisis


In February 2019, Vladislav Surkov published a famous article titled “Putin’s Long State. About what's going on here." It proposed to name the Russian Federation after President Putin as the fourth type of Russian statehood, putting him on a par with Ivan the Third, Peter the Great and Vladimir Lenin.


The former “chief intellectual of the presidential administration” frankly praised his boss in every way:

Much политическая Putin's machine is only gaining momentum and is getting ready for a long, difficult and interesting job. Its full capacity is far ahead, so that in many years Russia will still be Putin's state, just as modern France still calls itself de Gaulle's Fifth Republic, Turkey (despite the fact that anti-Kemalists are now in power there) still relies on on the ideology of Atatürk's "Six Arrows", while the United States still refers to the images and values ​​of the semi-legendary "founding fathers".
It is necessary to realize, comprehend and describe Putin's system of rule and, in general, the whole complex of ideas and dimensions of Putinism as the ideology of the future. It is the future, since the real Putin is hardly a Putinist, just as, for example, Marx is not a Marxist and not the fact that he would agree to be if he knew what it was. But this must be done for all who are not Putin, but would like to be like him. For the possibility of broadcasting his methods and approaches in the coming times.

However, by the end of the 22nd year of its existence, "Putin's Long State" came to a state of systemic crisis, which is simply impossible to deny. The most interesting thing is that Vladislav Surkov himself, the author and curator of both Minsk agreements, planted a geopolitical "atomic bomb" under it, for the implementation of which in 2015 he was even awarded the Order of Alexander Nevsky with the wording "For merits in ensuring the activities of the presidential administration of the Russian Federation and many years of impeccable public service."

What went wrong? Why was everything so good in February 2019, and suddenly not so good in February 2022?

If we put aside the propaganda husk, it turns out that the "Putin's Long State" stood on three pillars: high prices for hydrocarbon raw materials, an intra-social consensus called "Putin's stability" and "show-offs".

With the first whale, I think, and so everything is clear. In the "fat years" Russia received simply enormous windfall profits from the export of oil, gas and other natural resources, which, alas, were not used as efficiently as they could. However, something fell on the people, which was a pleasant contrast with the "dashing 90s." If Russian oil had cost $50 per barrel in the XNUMXs, many lovers of “Putin's stability” might not have remembered this period with such nostalgia.

The second whale, like a Siamese twin, is inextricably linked with the first, but this problem is much wider. The fact is that Putin inherited from "Tsar Boris" an armed conflict in Chechnya, terrorist explosions in residential buildings, as well as rampant crime. The essence of the social contract between the authorities and the people formed in the XNUMXs was that we all agree with a significant reduction in our rights and freedoms in exchange for the construction of a “vertical of power” headed by a “Strong Personality”, which puts things in order with an iron fist. And it looks like it even worked. Chechnya was pacified, flooded with money, bandits in sweatpants were pushed to the sidelines of history by polite "people in civilian clothes." The politicum turned out to be thoroughly purged, and the attitude was actively introduced into the public consciousness: “If not Putin, then who?”

The third whale is our "show-offs": formidable speeches, supported by a weak production the economy, but with breakthrough weapons, which often exist in single copies or small series. The collective West, in turn, constantly pretended to be afraid of Russian tank columns rushing to the English Channel, and the United States since 2014 has consistently created the image of an enemy from the Russian Federation in order to give new life to the NATO bloc and increase sales of its weapons.

So, what do we have after nine months of a special military operation to demilitarize Ukraine?

Europe, our main strategic partner, has set as its goal a fundamental refusal to purchase Russian gas. With regard to black gold from our country, a price ceiling will soon be introduced. Alternative markets are ready to take Russian hydrocarbons only at a very decent discount, shifting all the problems with their supply to the exporter. The dynamics, as doctors say, is negative.

The beginning of the NWO in Ukraine sharply split Russian society into supporters and opponents. The number of the first is estimated at about 70%, the second - in total about 30%, which is very, very much. The split of society according to political views and the vision of the post-war future into “whites” and “reds” is also obvious, which we will discuss in detail. told.
Alas and ah, but it is the “whites” who are in power now, for whom Kyiv and Western partners are closer and more understandable than their own “red” population with its aspirations to recreate the USSR-2 and the desire to win this new “Great Patriotic War”. This deep contradiction between the interests of the true owners and rulers of our country and its people determines all the "strangeness" of the special operation in Ukraine. A direct consequence of this attitude is the obvious decline in the authority of the Russian government both inside Russia and outside it.

The former social contract has de facto ceased to exist. And this, unfortunately, gave carte blanche to the external enemies of our country. The new deputy head of the CIA, David Marlow, says in plain text that the United States will use the dissatisfaction of the Russians with their president against him:

The invasion of Ukraine was a failure for Russian President Vladimir Putin and opens up opportunities for Western intelligence agencies to carry out undercover work among disgruntled Russians.

In fact, the arrogance of the Americans is simply amazing, since the main principle of intelligence operations is maximum secrecy. Such publicity of statements from Washington is a direct challenge to the Kremlin. And that's just the flowers.

The Russian Federation was not even invited to a security conference in Munich, which will be held on February 17-19, 2023, where instead of an official representative from Moscow, Western partners will receive the Russian non-systemic liberal opposition:

The Russian authorities are not invited to the Munich Security Conference 2023. We will not provide them with a platform for propaganda. We want to discuss the future of Russia with the leaders of the Russian opposition and people in exile. Their voices must be heard.

Recall that it was on this platform in 2007 that President Putin delivered his formidable speeches, which are considered the beginning of the Cold War - 2. The real “icing on the cake” can be considered the resolution of the European Parliament adopted on the eve of recognizing Russia as a “state sponsor of terrorism” due to the ongoing SVO in Ukraine. 494 MEPs out of 596 voted for it, 58 voted against, 44 abstained. If we add to it the recent split over the vote in the UN General Assembly for a resolution against the glorification of Nazism, as well as the adoption of a resolution on the payment of "reparations" by Russia to Ukraine, then the overall picture is extremely depressing.

In general, everything is complicated.

    You need to live according to the Constitution of the Russian Federation, and not according to the slogans (rules) “we don’t leave our own”, “money doesn’t smell”, “it’s just business”, “follow economic agreements”, “you need to follow a market economy”, “why have your own production, if you can buy it." It’s a shame to talk about education, one’s in the trash, the main thing is how it is over there, over the hill, our diplomas should be quoted over the hill, but in reality they don’t give the minister a visa. Why do we need physics and mathematics, and artificial intelligence, is it when the operator controls? On what mathematics is artificial intelligence based, on Boolean algebra or is there a new algebra?

    Yes, for most people, the informal agreement "the state does not particularly touch us and we do not blather" has ended, now the state touches everyone, but what in return?
    Stability? No. Maybe material well-being? No. Maybe at least faith in further prosperity and well-being? Also no.
    There is only a war, to which no end is in sight, even the landmarks, the goals that need to be achieved in order to win, are not clear.
    And in this war, you have to prepare yourself, so as not to die from the first wound, from blood loss, because the tourniquet that they will give you is complete shit. Or don’t get sick of meningitis or pneumonia, because they will give you a set of clothes that is only suitable for drill training on the parade ground

      but unfortunately nothing in return sad

      Stability? No. Maybe material well-being? No. Maybe at least faith in further prosperity and well-being? Also no.

      The prospects are very, very vague, it seems that the government does not have a clear plan for the near future and it acts at random. sad

      There is only a war, to which no end is in sight, even the landmarks, the goals that need to be achieved in order to win, are not clear.

      Goals are set, but how are they to be achieved? Demilitarization, well, given how we conduct military operations, how we deal with enemy rear areas, we will go to this goal for at least 3-4 years.
      Denazification, but how to carry it out, and what exactly does it involve, to grab ardent Ukrainian nationalists and bring them to trial? Well, given that they are very actively exchanged with the active participation of "our" elite, then you can forget about the fulfillment of this goal! sad
      The results are sad, we are like a hedgehog in a fog, we go the devil knows where and have a very vague idea of ​​what awaits us!

    own "red" population with its aspirations to recreate the USSR-2 and the desire to win this new "Great Patriotic War"

    This very "red" population either did not find the real USSR at a conscious age, or just if they did not destroy it themselves, then indifferently watched the process from the side. No one rose up to defend the USSR in 1991. And the current “reds” became such much later, when they realized that they did not succeed in “fitting into the market”. And even if tomorrow, by some miracle of the USSR, the Soviet system is restored to the smallest detail, 90% of those who are nostalgic about socialism will declare without any doubt that this is "wrong" socialism.
    And the desire to win in the new Great Patriotic War ... So this is not a desire to win on our own - few of these who want to join the military enlistment office ran, and they will not sign up for hardships and hardships. They have a desire to turn on the TV and be told from there that "they" have won. Well, as in favorite fairy tales: "At the behest of the pike, at my will ..."

    As soon as I see a headline with the word "why", I already know both the author and the fact that he will not answer the question, but simply uses the boorish technique of advertisers who put the thesis into the question that they need to approve in the mind of the consumer.
    There is a crisis - and its causes are in global negative processes, from which everyone is trying to find a way out, and some at the expense of others.

    In contrast to the uniting USSR, the name Russia is identified with Russians among many nationalities to the detriment of other nationalities, and therefore the question of the name of the state education deserves attention.
    In world history, there are three types of state formations - slave-owning, feudal and bourgeois, differing in the forms of state structure and government - dictatorship, monarchy, republic, among which there is only one thing in common - the appropriation of material goods and the domination of a minority of the population over the majority.
    Man obeys the general laws of development and cannot change them at will or desire, but he can speed up or slow down development, and this is the only criterion for correctly assessing the influence of man on the course of history.
    There is no systemic crisis in the Russian Federation today, but V.V. Putin himself laid the “atomic bomb” in Article 13 of the 2022 Constitution on the recognition of ideological diversity and the prohibition of state ideology. It's like a body without a soul, a living corpse. What is an ideology? This is a system of views and ideas that the ruling class professes or the group in power that leads it through its political party, which inculcates this ideology and protects it. As V.I. Lenin wrote, in a class society ideology can only be class-based - capitalist or proletarian. The proletariat always fights for certain economic interests that fundamentally change nothing, and in order to change this, the class solidarity of the proletariat and a political party are necessary.
    The condition for existence is the ideological cohesion of the proletarians of all nations and peoples living on the territory of the Russian Federation and the fundamental principles of the Leninist New Economic Policy as a compromise at the stage of building socialism between private and public property, which can only be ensured by a political party and the dictatorship of the proletariat. Otherwise, the different and antagonistic political and economic interests of the national and regional bourgeoisie lead to the emergence of nationalism and civil war, followed by the formation of national state formations, the eradication of the language of interethnic communication in them, the rewriting of history, the creation of national heroes and everything that happened after the collapse of the USSR.

    Why [i]Putin's Long State Faced a Systemic Crisis

    A good start, but the author at the end of the article "everything is complicated."
    The answer is simple:
    1) the time has come to solve systemic problems that have accumulated over the past 40 years;
    2) a leader came who was able to increase his potential and kinetics over the past 20 years;
    3) a group of people of the strategic state level showed themselves.
    It was possible to evade and not face any crisis if scary.
    But there are conditions for "clarifying" any crises, so the process with a well-known ending has already been going on since 2011 (11 years). Surkov saw something, Marzhetsky saw something - this is normal.

    The article is generalizing and, as is customary with Sergey, timely and polemical. There is a systemic crisis, I will add that, among other things, because the former, let's call Surkov's, methods in foreign and domestic policy do not work. The state of the state is different, we are at war, you know.
    From my point of view, instead of tricky tricks that were cheaper and provided maneuver for both your interests - the interests of foreign companies, and ours - the interests of people provided with power and resources inside the country, they made it possible to get along, for example, Minsky 1-2, in the current state it is required to use simple and costly understandable to both our and your methods.
    Do not go behind the scenes, but openly declare goals and means; not to fuss, but to extinguish the infrastructure of the enemy mercilessly; not to curtsey to foreigners, but to expropriate what they failed to get out of the country. Well, es-no, to come to terms with the fact that our responsible persons will no longer be able to travel the world after going on a well-deserved vacation, former partners will no longer let them. They will not forgive, and rightly so - it was not good to count on it when I went to this post))

    In fact, there are no ideological contradictions between Russia and the West like the contradictions between the USSR and the West.
    Now and there and there capitalism, private property. Naturally, the capitalists are in power here and there.
    Where are the conflicts from?
    Duck is very simple: capitalism divides the zones of influence, using, among other things, the image of an external enemy.
    For the United States, a convenient external enemy is Russia. The same nation (not accused of racism), until recently Russia was an ideological adversary (socialism).
    For Russian capitalists, a convenient external enemy is the United States.
    An external enemy is needed to distract its population from internal problems, to give preferences to its business, so that the authorities write off all their jambs to external forces.
    And the people here and there are just a bargaining chip that believes that if you destroy Russia / the USA (underline as necessary), then the people will live !!!!!
    Won't live.
    He will heal only when the intelligence of the average person rises significantly.
    And this is education, and upbringing and the attitude of the state, and a thousand more reasons.
    And then a person will have critical thinking and he will be able to evaluate events on his own, regardless of what Solovyov, Zelensky, Peskov and others like them say.
    But for some reason it seems to me that neither you nor I will have to live in that beautiful era ....

      In the huge noisy multicolor of the outside world, we isolate what has already been determined by our culture. We perceive objects through the stereotypes of our culture

      Lippman wrote. 

      to prove it, I will give you your example when you are trying to fit modernity into what you learned in school about socialism and capitalism ..... not seeing real contradictions between east and west .....

      Stereotypes are inevitable, the researcher believed. They arise whenever a person interacts with the environment and projects his feelings and values ​​onto the world. Lippman found a very capacious and accurate description of stereotypes, calling them “pictures in the minds” that save a person from the complexities of the world around him.

      But indeed, it is so: first we give the subject a definition, and only after that we see it, and not vice versa. Stereotypes are like glasses through which you see the world. What color lenses, such a world. Perception goes through stereotypes and it's pretty easy to check. Here is a table: first, the thought arises in your head that in front of you is a piece of furniture for writing or eating behind it (as is customary in culture), and only then you see that it is glass, round and quite low.

    Chechnya was pacified, flooded with money ...

    One "money filling" would not have done - the bandit formations won. Moreover, before that it did not work out, for objective reasons or subjective, but it did not work out.
    I don't want to say that Putin ruled the country perfectly, but compared to what he accepted in 2000, the country looks good now. And note that the achievements did not require those incredible strains of the forces of the people that took place during the years of the first five-year plans. Did the West take serious economic and financial sanctions, did the standard of living of Russians fall sharply?
    An attempt to blame the president for the weak patriotism of society, the lack of education of young people, and so on, does not look quite worthy - in many respects these are the consequences of the collapse of the USSR and the decade of the 90s. And even more so in this:

    Europe, our main strategic partner, has set as its goal a fundamental refusal to purchase Russian gas.

      An attempt to accuse the president of the weak patriotism of society, the lack of education of young people, etc., does not look quite worthy ...

      No and no again! The author is absolutely right in this matter. Putin has made great efforts and directed huge funds to bring the country out of the crisis, improve the social conditions of life of citizens, and restore the country's military power. How successful he was in all these cases, everyone is free to judge in their own way. But it was precisely the question of the patriotic education of young people that, until very recently, was not only not in the center of his attention, but also remained in complete (and I would say, criminal) oblivion. Despite the fact that just this issue was solved most easily and with the least, in comparison with everything else, financial costs and with the greatest, again in comparison with everything else, effect: have you forgotten? - "cadres decide everything" !!! We have really lost a whole generation of citizens, and today we are reaping the fruits, including on the fields of war, that war, from which, let's not deceive ourselves, the majority of young people today deny it, like from the plague. And after all, it was not necessary to have seven spans in the forehead (which the leader of the nation is supposed to have) in order to understand the super-importance of such a task - the patriotic education of children / youth! And all that was needed was to organize the work of writing a worthy Textbook of the History of the Russian State and print it in the required number of copies, banning the use of that numerous "historical" surrogate that was stuffed in our children's schools. This work, with proper control and the desire to do it, I am sure, could be done in a year and a half. What means it would demand, it is possible not to say. By the way, it is inappropriate here to refer to the need to retrain the teachers themselves: at a minimum, it would be enough for them to read this very textbook themselves.

    It differs fundamentally.
    There was no private property in the USSR, communism was built there, the goals of the state were different.

    The West will force Putin to make a political decision on Ukraine. Which. Peace treaty on the terms of Ukraine, Minsk-3, capitulation of the Kremlin. Any of them is a defeat of the political system in the Russian Federation, this is not a crisis, 500 thousand military personnel who return from the front, plus their relatives, a total of 1,5 million citizens who immediately became dissatisfied with the authorities. Jews, Tel Aviv want to supply ballistic missiles to Kyiv, with a firing range of 90 to 430 kilometers, capable of destroying the entire Crimea and all entrances to the peninsula, the entire LDNR from near Kherson or Nikolaev. This is the beginning. There are many people who want to supply ballistic missiles to Kyiv in NATO. How will the RF Armed Forces fight back ??? There is only one way out.
    Legislate that the entire territory of Ukraine, seized by the separatists with the help of NATO, is an integral part of Russia. Ukraine is Russia.
    What will Putin choose?

    The reason is the sanctions, since the Magnitsky case began. And it could hardly be otherwise. There would be a reason. Western expansion in Russia is not needed, otherwise you can completely lose the country.

    Another nonsense. According to the author, the smearing of its population in Europe is a great victory for the West. Smart people have long understood that Russia, in fact, after 1991 became a colony of the Anglo-Saxons. And of course, the right people were put in place in Russia. That is why the West is so angry about what is happening. But do not interfere with white and red here. We all know very well how the Reds sold their country in 1991. And this is a fact. And the red people exchanged ideas for sausage and chewing gum. This is also a fact. And we know how the whites helped the USSR in World War II. This is also a fact. It is necessary to have the education of a stupid troechnik in order to divide everything into black and white. Our world is much more complicated than they are trying to convince us with this nonsense.

      the reds betrayed, and the whites helped ... that is, Yeltsin, Chubai and others like them, who in the 90s in Leningrad / St. Petersburg lined their pockets well in the Sobchakas team, are they red? I want to remind you that in the referendum on the preservation of the USSR, the overwhelming majority of the red population was FOR preservation ... the fact that no one came out is also a fairy tale ... they came out ... and then there were wide May Day demonstrations, at least, at least the protection of the Supreme Council in the 93rd, when part of the shameful army hid, and part openly took the side of the Nazis, who then rebuilt the center in the Ekb ... the fact that Zhenechka Fedorov caught the wrong people and Putin needs to help throw off the Anglo-Saxons with endless amendments to the Constitution is it hasn’t been known for a long time ... but that’s what prevents Zhenechka from voting against all kinds of Anglo-Saxon initiatives in the Russian Federation so no one from this crazy sect could explain to me ... but pointing fingers at the fact that there are only traitors around and this is a fact, the easiest way ... the people, in order to choose jeans instead of socialism, deliberately prepared for several years (or even dozens) ... all these artificial shortages and cards, when factories and factories worked and produced, they did not take it from scratch ... the people are fooled or pushed into the jaws of capital. it is a fact. as well as the fact that having a party card does not make a person a communist or a liberal democrat ...

      about the whites who helped in the 2nd World War ... isn’t that the same Denikin’s refusal to cooperate with Hitler? well, just a huge help ... someone, but the defeated Denikin would definitely help Hitler defeat the USSR ... that there are some Guderians, yes Mansteins ... and the names of the "assistants" Krasnov, Shkuro and some others are not about what don't they say? as well as about tens of thousands of white émigrés fooled by them? you also tell us about the "patriotism" of the Nazi accomplice Ivan Ilyin ... some certainly helped, some kept neutrality, and a significant part actively helped Hitler ... and this is an UNCONDITIONAL fact ...

        Do you know who Yeltsin, Kravchuk, Shushkevich and others like them were during the USSR? Did they fall from the air? Or were they brought in the hold from overseas lands? Nothing that their floor was checked by a microscope by those who moved them up from the school desk? But nothing that they should be ideologically savvy? What were their KGB special services doing? And that people like Yeltsin, Kravchuk, etc. were there thousands? And someone moved them all from school? Ale? Maybe they were all blind and did not see what Yeltsin was? Or was Yeltsin such a genius that he fooled everyone? No need to talk about the traitor Yeltsin here. And if you tell, then tell us how people like him came to power in the USSR. That's when I can trust you.

          Everyone who was in the Central Committee of the CPSU aspired and fought for the post of general secretary, they were not interested in the life of the people, which is evidenced, for example, by the Novocherkassk rastrel. And what about today, when Putin V.V. asked the physician about the salary, the answer shocked him. But for zeroing, it took 2 hours to figure out the referendum, all honor on honor, but what is the salary, how has it changed for doctors and teachers?

    The author is a dreamer.
    Firstly, hydrocarbon prices rose precisely because the GDP came to power, and the uncontrolled outflow of resources at dumping prices towards the West stopped.
    Secondly, there has been no curtailment of rights and freedoms in Russia. The only thing is that the state has finally begun to protect citizens from the bandits of the 90s, who decided that they were allowed to do everything. The people just said thanks to the GDP. Rights and freedoms are severely limited in the US and the EU, so there you would be kicked in the horns for any propaganda against the mainstream.
    Thirdly, "show-offs" are only in your imagination. In the world, everything is much more complicated so that someone can go on a show-off. There are problems for us and for them. And it is still unknown who will find it more difficult to solve them in the future.

Let me add on my own - imagine that there is a pipe, neat, shiny, painted, pleasing to the eye. And they gave pressure through this pipe, and immediately flowed from all the cracks and holes that had previously been caulked, painted, and covered over. Total pressure is powerful and the output is miserable drops. And the management to which the object belongs, instead of repairing, begins to look for excuses and blame anyone. And the cracks and holes are plugged by simple repairmen with improvised means. This is how I see the current situation. And yes, if we don’t repair the pipe, then Khan will be us.

    I agree. But I see it a little differently:
    There are budget organizations: education, medicine, the army.
    I watch TV, and there they enthusiastically praise our education and medicine, how teachers are awarded medals, all-Russian dictations are carried out, how expensive MRIs are put in hospitals.
    I go to school with my child, and there are complete seams: there are not enough teachers, there are no knives in the canteen, the locker rooms are full of students.
    I go to the polyclinic, and there are complete seams, - there is not a single specialist, half of the therapists are not enough.
    And here I am again watching TV, and there are tank shows, all-Russian military exercises, super duper missiles.
    And I don't have to go to the army to understand what's really going on there, just by analogy with education and medicine...

    the respected author superficially assesses the current situation, 2022 began with the epoch-making act of VV Putin, a worthy leader of a great country, comparable to Ivan the Great (Ivan the Third), who trampled on the shameful demand for tribute by the golden horde. so VV Putin at the beginning of 2022 canceled the budget rule, that is, a shameful tribute to the West ........ the West immediately showed its true colors by setting Ukrainian fascists on the Russian Federation ...... then VV Putin removed Chubais Ernst, for all allegorically, a person I respect, Vladislav Surkov, correctly expressed himself about Putin's LONG state, drop by drop squeezing out a pro-Western liberal slave for many years, here you can’t accuse Putin of pro-Westernism, because you need to squeeze out a pro-Western slave from the people deceived by liars by Hollywood TV and the Internet, people only red in appearance, but you dig, give him everything imported, trips to Turkey and Paris are like a dream, 700 thousand traitors fled from mobilization! that's horrible! the whole structure of the state is pro-Western and those who shout that they are allegedly patriots, for some reason they repeat after the BBS and SNN, about some ephemeral sanctions and drown about their rotten insides, not believing that something better can be done in Russia or China than in Germany .... this is how deep the slavish admiration for the West is deeply embedded in the people and officials .... that is why SW Vladislav Surkov writes about the LONG state for a long time, consistently and stubbornly, starting from Chechnya, squeezing out all this slave rot from the people and officials ... but everything is blamed on ministers and oligarchs by those who do not want to turn on themselves and whose patriotism is just envy of the more successful and unwillingness to work and achieve, just stupidity and inability ... to squeeze slave pro-Westernism out of officials is not easy, because they need to be replaced by patriots where can you find so many of them? and there is a struggle, here I am expelled from the university for patriotic views, my advanced age means that I will lose my job forever, because even petty evil fat officials sometimes hate patriots ...... and you are talking about ministers and oligarchs ....

    Why are you writing about a long state ... on a day off, out of good intentions, I decided to watch the film "Belarusian Station". He stayed for a whole minute, as a sign of respect for Papanov and Leonov. Then suddenly the treacherous NKVD name Urgant scratched my mind for a second. Then the gloomy mug of a 90-year-old man flashed by in lieutenant's shoulder straps with one gap but with a large major's star, and I turned off the movie.
    The Russians took responsibility for the fate of hundreds of peoples living on the territory of holy Rus', and then just like that, they screwed everything up over a drink.
    Anyone wants to ask themselves and their neighbors the question: what is the strength, brother, like... what to do and who is to blame... what is the Russian national idea.

    In fact, there are no ideological contradictions between Russia and the West like the contradictions between the USSR and the West.
    Now and there and there capitalism, private property. Naturally, the capitalists are in power here and there.
    Where are the conflicts from?

    how do you write such nonsense! and then you call for independent thinking !!! first throw off false stereotypes within yourself and know the truth, and only then call on everyone to become free .... in addition to ideological contradictions (socialism capitalism), rather ephemeral, verbal, empty words, there are deep contradictions, the West wants to make us their slaves, like Africans and Asians and South Americans, so that they pay tribute and give away all natural resources for free, and we want to be free independent and spend income within the country ...., the West wants to impose artificial genders and LGBT on us, and we want traditional family values, this is more a difference in ideology than between capitalism and socialism ... the West wants to impose Satanism and Halloween on us, and we want the revival of religious morality and traditional norms of life = this is just an ideology

    There are no deep contradictions, all contradictions are purely superficial. We have much more contradictions with the Islamic world.
    And with the West, we are of the same race, of the same faith, and are very similar.
    And they hung this noodle for you, so that it would be easier to manage you.
    Please note that those who are trying to convince you of the existence of some insurmountable contradictions were pumping all Russian financial reserves to the West. Mrs. Nebiullina, who pumped all Russian reserves to the West (which are now hopelessly frozen), is still in office.
    This means that in the opinion of senior management, she did everything right, and she will again transfer our reserves there at the first opportunity.
    Why have our authorities not yet passed a law prohibiting the investment of Russia's financial reserves in Western funds?
    Why did the authorities adjust to the West for 20 years, adjusted education and medicine to their standards?
    And who began to actively introduce yuvinulka in our country, and only the active indignation of the people stopped this process?
    Who made the pension reform "a la Zapad"?

    split Russian society into supporters and opponents. The number of the first is estimated at about 70%, the second - in total about 30%, which is very, very much.

    these data were correct before the start of mobilization ...
    those. before the "war" was the business of the sovereign and his "mercenaries" - contractors ...
    mobilization showed that the state is unable not only to attract "mobiks" to its side, but even to provide for them ...
    millions, who were indifferent to their own, immediately became against their own and Putin, began to "hide" from the draft inside the country, and about a million fled over the hill ...
    this is a clear indicator that it was not possible to pull "Soviet" patriotism on the bogey of capitalism ...
    because mobilized, as a rule, an adult, already has a family, then one can unequivocally rank all his relatives, friends and friends among his opponents ...
    as well as employers...
    and when the coffins go in mass, the protest will go exponentially ...
    because a mobilized non-contractor is not his choice ...
    Moreover, this is not the last mobilization ...
    so, the number of "for" is already at best 30% ...
    just look at the number of volunteers - it is negligible by the standards of mobilization
    somewhere I saw figures, as an argument, they say there are so many of them - as many as 18000 ...
    against 300000 mobilized ...
