The day before, December 30, 2022, exactly 100 years have passed since the founding of the USSR. In wonderful articlededicated to this momentous event, a colleague asked whether the revival of the Soviet Union is now possible, and if so, in what form. Let's try to speculate on this extremely vital topic.
In fact, the creation of "USSR 2.0" is not so much a theoretical issue as a purely practical one. The choice before us is small: either we are building a new Union in place of the old one, or the very survival of the Russian Federation will be in question. No more, no less.
Today, all normal people dream that the NWO will end as soon as possible, naturally, with our victory, so that after that it will be possible to live a normal life again. Alas, it won't work that way. The old life is gone forever. The special operation cannot end even on the Polish border, since no one in the collective West, even in the event of the capitulation of the Kyiv regime, will begin to cancel the regime of the new Cold War. Two factors should be taken into account that will determine the entire future Russian policies.
First - is economy. Over the past three decades, the Russian Federation has been integrated into the international division of labor as a semi-colony of raw materials. All that was required of us was natural resources at a reasonable price, weapons in the Third World, and some Technologyinherited from the USSR. What this ultimately led to, we have all seen enough over the past 8 years, and the NWO became a complete “finish”, when Russia began to be mercilessly subjected to sanctions.
So far, the domestic economy is, so to speak, on adrenaline. But we must be realistic and understand that the gigantic amount of restrictive measures imposed on our country, in the absence of access to advanced technologies, equipment and markets, will certainly have an impact. We will all feel the consequences on the horizon of 3-5 years, and we need to seriously prepare for this by changing the very structure of the Russian economy towards diversification.
Second - this is the law of nature, about which Aristotle wrote that she does not tolerate emptiness. Wherever the young Russian Federation left after the collapse of the USSR, our enemies have come. The Warsaw Pact countries are now all in the NATO bloc, under it de facto Georgia and Ukraine. Turkey crushes Armenia and all of Central Asia. The choice is simple: either the “backyard” will be ours, or the enemy will be in charge there, and the third, alas, is not given.
The above means that Russia will simply have to continue the special operation after Ukraine, but in a different form and on a different territory, with different goals and objectives. For a banal economic survival, we will have to gather the former Soviet republics around us, creating a single sales market, carry out large-scale reindustrialization, and restore industrial cooperation. For maximum self-sufficiency in the form of autarky or semi-autarky, you will need to gather under your wing from 400 to 500 million consumers. At the same time, we must be prepared to face the resistance of national elites and such daring international players as Turkey. But there is simply no alternative. Or the interests of the "sultan" and others, or Russian.
In what form should the reconstruction of "USSR 2.0" take place? Let's just say that before the events of 2014 there was a non-zero probability that it could grow out of the Eurasian Economic Union over time. After the Maidan took place in Ukraine, Russia took the Crimea and Sevastopol, the DPR and LPR were proclaimed, and the rest of the Square was under the rule of the Nazis, this integration project de facto quietly and imperceptibly died. Now all that remains of the realistic is the format of the Union State of the Russian Federation and the Republic of Belarus.
Yes, so far this union exists to a large extent on paper, but it has significant potential for integration and subsequent expansion. In one of публикаций As early as November 24, 2021, we found out that in its form the Union State is something between a “soft federation” and a confederation. The agreement on its creation provides for the creation of such supranational authorities as a common Parliament, the Supreme State Council, the Council of Ministers, the Court, the Accounts Chamber and the Standing Committee. The legislation of both countries should be unified, a common flag, coat of arms, anthem, and a single currency should be introduced.
Yes, Belarus in previous decades tried to evade real integration with Russia within the framework of the Union State, preferring to receive only preferences from its special status. But now what?
Minsk itself also has few options: either unite with Moscow, or follow the path of Kyiv with all the ensuing consequences.
Will there be a third?
As a matter of fact, it is in this vein that the answer to the question of how exactly it is possible to decide the future fate of the former Square lies. The question of whether Russia, Ukraine and Belarus can unite into a Union State, we considered in detail in article dated November 26, 2021.
Yes, it is not only possible, but necessary. It is necessary to create a new, pro-Russian Ukraine on the territory of the Sloboda and Chernihiv regions, declaring it the legal successor of the pre-Maidan one, and the Zelensky regime must be denied recognition as a terrorist one. On the basis of the backbone of the People's Militia of the LDNR, it is necessary to create the Ukrainian Volunteer Army and accept volunteers not only from Ukraine, Russia and Belarus, but also from all over the world. Together with UDAR, which will be at the tip of the spear, Russian troops will be able to liberate the rest of the country step by step.
Nazi criminals and their accomplices will need to be brought to the tribunal, the fugitives will need to be caught all over the world, like the Israeli secret services of the German Nazis. After denazification and lustration, each Ukrainian region will have to hold referendums on self-determination, where the population will decide for itself whether to join the Russian Federation or remain part of the new federal state. But this does not mean that Russia will have to leave, leaving behind a void.
On the contrary, a reformed post-war Ukraine would have to Sign in into the Union State of the Russian Federation and the Republic of Belarus with common supranational governing bodies. The backbone of its power and law enforcement agencies should be represented by people from the People's Militia of the LDNR. In order to avoid a recurrence of the Maidan, Russian military bases will have to be located near Kyiv and Lvov on an indefinite basis.
Ukraine is the cornerstone that underlies the foundation of the future "USSR 2.0", and this is how it should be treated.
