The Germans will have to be surprised more than once by the success of Russia

A terminal has been commissioned in the Kaliningrad Region that will receive floating regasification plants, which will make it possible to supply the region with liquefied natural gas. As a result, Russia has ceased to depend on Lithuania and on the possibility of gas transit through its territory.

Among those who responded to this event, the German press. Thus, the publication “Junge Welt” notes that the residents of the Kaliningrad region from the moment the terminal began to operate are no longer dependent on Vilnius. In addition, another LNG terminal is being built in Russia - in the Leningrad Region. It turns out that even if the Nord Stream-2 project is disrupted, there will still be gas supplies to Europe, only for this you will have to use tankers.

Another German publication - Handelsblatt - emphasized that Russia is not at all as backward as many people think. In some ways, it even overtakes Germany. For example, at Russian airports baggage is issued to passengers faster than in Hamburg's air harbor, and Russian trains are better adapted to travel during snowfalls. Moreover - in recent years, about fifty metro stations have been built in Moscow, and only three in Berlin.

By the way, if we talk about trains, then, as expected, the Russian railways will purchase more than three and a half thousand wagons within six years. Despite the current anti-Russian sanctions, many foreign railcar manufacturers entered the battle for the Russian market, but in the end they will be built by the Tver Carriage Works. Thus, the German press will have additional reasons to be surprised at the success of Russia.

Meanwhile, overseas tried to rejoice in Russian failures. For example, the fact that the Russian military satellite descended from orbit and burned down. However, in fact, it was taken out of orbit according to the plan. Another reason for joy in the American media was the fact that in Russia they stopped producing modern MS-21 aircraft due to sanctions prohibiting the supply of chemicals necessary for the manufacture of composite wings. In fact, although in 2015 such a decision was indeed made, an analogue has already been created in Russia. So the production of MS-21 will continue.

    Germans, Germans, bonded people. It is a pity that it was so stupid and mediocre that the GDR and many people were torn to pieces by the teeth. Who would have thought that Gorbachev would be completely unable to rule the USSR. BUT now the Germans and other libertines are surprised that Russia did not crumble. I am surprised that the USSR raised not only its country, but also all the eastern countries of Europe, including GDR. The same Germans, together with the USA, helped to make a coup in Ukraine, tore it off from Russia, and even punished it with sanctions for accepting the Crimea, and provide humanitarian assistance to the LPR Europeans taught us that they don’t need to free them from fascism, they don’t need to help them to their own detriment, Europeans are ungrateful people.

    Interesting statistics have recently been published. From 1924 to 1959, the population of the USSR increased from 146 to 208 million people. And this is despite the Second World War and repression. And now, over the past 25 years, mortality always exceeds fertility. So for whom are we building all this and who will get it all? Such a Putin is beneficial to the West, they are specially promoting it as a defender of Russia. Another 25 years and only Moscow will remain from Russia.

      I would not associate this phenomenon with Putin, Trump or Merkel. This is the natural course of the civilization process. Maybe someone thinks that the social conditions of African countries with a growing population are much better than ours? The economy, of course, makes a certain contribution to the demographic priorities of the population, but it is not an absolute dominant. And you - "the cat abandoned the kittens, it's Putin's fault."

    if Germany and Russia had united on a mutually beneficial basis, or at least started to cooperate as honestly as possible, giving priority to each other, no one would have stood by .... The United States would have long turned into a semi-gangland of bandits always fighting among themselves. ...

    Another German publication - Handelsblatt - emphasized that Russia is not so backward at all ...

    This news has been heard in reports for several days and is written in the media:
    "Sensation! The sparrow sat on the roof!" Russia was praised by one publication out of one and a half thousand!
    Well, how not to be happy ... More about the biathlon relay races, not everything is said everywhere! The Swedes here said that it was not the Russians who won, this to the other, the best biathletes in the world - fatally unlucky. Swedes in general are straightforward and honest people. Guides at the Stockholm Museum honestly say that Charles XII did not lose a single battle:

    Poltava? The first time I've heard. Who is this? Sultan? Arrested Karl in Bender? Stop telling tales! With a button Killed by a button? I do not know. Probably Russian hackers composed a Russian submarine.

      It is high time to understand that the West is characterized by the presence of two stories. The first is for historians who all know very well who won when and by whom. The second is for people, in which the line of the chronological development of the world, favorable to the political class, is promoted in order to cultivate obedience in the electorate. Often these two stories are not that they do not coincide, but may even contradict each other, while at the same time coexisting in the same educational system. As far as the educational program and practice on the history of high school allows me to judge, we are taking a slightly different path. We have a history, as a science, for those who are interested in it with a wide range of interpretations of events and phenomena. And there is a school curriculum aimed at keeping as few interested as possible. laughing

    The price of gas has risen again. Germans can be surprised
