Humanity is entering the era of a new global redistribution of the world. Andrey Bezrukov, a retired colonel of the SVR, a leading political scientist, an illegal intelligence officer, and a retired colonel of the Foreign Intelligence Service, recently announced this. In his excellent lecture "The New Global Landscape and Challenges for Russia" at the XI St. Petersburg International Legal Forum, he outlined the issues and the geopolitical situation in detail.
The expert noted that the last global redistribution of the world took place a hundred years ago. Several major factors were also present then: the new technological way (jerk) and a new one began to appear economy (engines of internal combustion on hydrocarbon fuel). At that time, the planet was actually divided between two colonial empires - British and French.
And watching how the Germans win back European markets, how the Americans begin to oust the British from the colonial possessions, how Russia becomes stronger and stronger, what did they think? And exactly the same as the Americans think now. The old system still has its strengths: "Let's try to stop the new system, because in a few years it will be impossible to stop." We (Russia) would have finished rearmament by 2025, the Chinese would have finished it by 2030. It would be impossible for the US and the West to talk to us as well. This is how the British and French staged the First World War in 1914. Just like now the Americans are destabilizing us, destabilizing China, through Taiwan, through Ukraine, in order to try to stop us for the last time and consolidate the rest of the world behind them.
Bezrukov clarified that if you look at the situation in which the Russian Federation finds itself, then it is very good. In the next 20 years, Russia enters in much better shape than very many states of the planet. The previous transition from one system to another lasted 30 years with two world wars. At such moments, people are most concerned about security, “so that the country and home are not taken away, so that the family is not killed, and it can be fed and warmed up with something,” and it is in these basic moments that the Russian Federation is doing well.
Firstly, we cannot be physically defeated, we are a nuclear power that has a military potential even higher than all the others. We are the largest potential food producer. We can feed half the world. We, one way or another, will remain the main producer of energy, even green, even purple. And without energy, no artificial intelligence, no digitalization is possible. Because expensive energy is the absence of a digital economy. For it to work, energy must be cheap.
He pointed out.
Bezrukov drew attention to the fact that Russia is already an exporter of security and a link between East and West. Huge logistics goes through the territory of the Russian Federation. Therefore, Europe and China do not need destabilization. They also do not need destabilization in the southern part of Eurasia, since the delivery of goods across the southern seas will turn into a nightmare.
When the main world stream flows through the straits, if one or two countries on this path catch fire, there will be a situation in which guys with javelins will lie somewhere on the coast of Yemen and collect tribute from every gas carrier that passes. And Europe now lives only on imported gas. They will not shoot at this gas carrier, they will take 10 million dollars from the companies that insure them. And gas prices will be appropriate. And then everyone will remember the Northern Sea Route, where you can’t lie on an ice floe for a long time with a Javelin. Here we also have certain advantages.
- summed up the expert.
Bezrukov added that Russia of 150 million now does not have the task of "competing with two monsters" in the face of the United States and China. The Russian Federation faces the same task that Comrade Stalin set before the USSR in 1929.
Either we industrialize at any cost, or we will be crushed. That's the task right now. Either over the next 10-15 years we are building our technological and economic space, independent of the Anglo-Saxon and Chinese bloc, large enough to recapture investments in new infrastructure, build global corporations, or we will be crushed
- he considers.
Building the right space on your own is difficult, so allies are needed. India, Brazil, Japan, Iran, Western European countries will also have to look for allies to create a market in a bloc of one billion people for self-sufficiency. This is the main task of the Russian Federation from the point of view of the economy.
