Политолог и публицист Андрей Пионтковский о целях Владимира Путина в отношении Украины, дальнейших действиях российских военных и о том, к чему приведет военная эскалация. — Мы наблюдаем эскалацию ситуации на востоке Украины. Российские войска демонстративно наращивают свою группировку на границе. Как вам кажется, какие будут дальнейшие шаги Путина? У него есть план? Это просто демонстрация силы или попытка захвата новых территорий? — Многие эксперты утверждают, что все эти действия всего лишь операция шантажа, угрозы, демонстрации силы, как в отношении Украины, так и в отношении США. Я бы охотно согласился с такой точкой зрения, потому что другой ответ

Нынешняя эскалация на Донбассе, которую устроила Россия, является самой масштабной за последние годы. Угроза нового вторжения в Украину по-прежнему сохраняется, ведь у РФ количественный фактор военного превосходства. Несмотря на то, что многие страны Запада выразили поддержку Киеву и осудили агрессивные маневры Кремля, украинцам следует в первую очередь рассчитывать на собственные Вооруженные силы. Об этом в интервью OBOZREVATEL рассказал герой Украины, генерал-лейтенант ВСУ и руководитель АТО на Донбассе в 2017 году Михаил Забродский. – Путин снова стягивает войска и технику к границе с Украиной. Думаете, нападет? – Это далеко не новый оперативно-стратегический маневр России, но он действительно самый масштабный за последние годы. Это факт. Однако между поддержкой сепаратистов, аннексией Крыма

Așa după cum avertizat de nenumărate ori, strategii US Army și-au pus în cap ca parteneriatul strategic cu Armata Română să treacă la ”next level”. Astfel că, pe lângă shopping-ul de 12 miliarde dolari deja efectuat de obedientul ministru Nicolae Ionel Ciucă la ”talciocul cu vechituri” al samsarilor americani de armament , România ar trebui să își arate loialitate și pe ”frontul ucrainean”! Americanii vor să ne trimită și în Transnistria! Cel pe care noua Administrație Democrată a ”uitucului” Biden îl vrea musai deschis, cu orice preț. Ce-i drept, până acum decidenții politici de la București s-au ferit ca de tămâie de abordarea unui astfel de subiect, alertați fiind de structurile contrainformative românești. Mai ales SIE opunându-se din răsputeri să nu cădem în capcana întinsă de ambițiosul SBU, serviciul ucrainean de securitate. Astfel că, până acum cel puțin, cu excepția unor inevitabile antrenamente comune cu militarii

Подготовка к отражению агрессии должна начинаться с осознания угрозы. Вооруженные силы Российской Федерации насчитывают более 1 миллиона военнослужащих, однако сколько из них готовы к вторжению в Украину? На данный момент на границе с Украиной развернуты 150-я мотострелковая дивизия Южного военного округа, 3-я мотострелковая дивизия Западного военного округа, к Украине перебрасывается 74-я мотострелковая бригада Центрального военного округа. В Крыму - 126-я мотострелковая бригада береговой обороны, 810-я бригада морской пехоты и 56-я десантно-штурмовая бригада. Эти силы являются серьезной угрозой, но недостаточны для проведения глубокой наступательной операции. Однако Россия с 2014-го проводит военную реформу для увеличения числа боеготовых наземных сил. 1. Сколько

Russian forces with heavy artillery and tanks have in two weeks piled at least 28 battalion tactical groups on the northern and eastern borders of Ukraine, while also placing Russian invasion forces in Crimea on the ready. Moscow says its forces are preparing a large-scale military exercise, although no timeline was set. In Washington, at NATO HQ and in West European capitals, Moscow is suspected of preparing another round of Ukraine warfare in order to expand the holdings of the pro-Russian separatists and jolt the pro-Western government in Kyev. Fearing the worst, the Ukraine government asked NATO and Europe for help, which prompted a warning from Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov of “additional measures” should European troops come to Kyev’s aid. Another Ukraine invasion by Russia would confront President Joe Biden with his first foreign military challenge and test his resolve. In a bid to head off a clash, the

Staunton, April 6 – Andrey Nechayev, an economist who earlier served as Russia’s first minister for economic development, says that Russia’s regional governments are facing financial disaster not because they have been improvident as Vladimir Putin suggests but because Moscow imposes unfunded liabilities and doesn’t allow them to retain most of the taxes they collect. The number of unfunded liabilities has skyrocketed in the last year because the Kremlin decided that the regions should deal with the pandemic, and while Moscow has transferred more money to them in response, it has not given them anything like the money they need to do what they have been told to do (facebook.com/aanechaev/posts/10216167476254582 reposted at region.expert/nechayev/). That adds to the underlying problem of Russia’s financial system: the regions collect taxes, send almost all of them to Moscow and then get back only a

În lume se caută acum modalități de folosire a motoarelor hibride pentru a proteja mediul. În Ucraina, însă, problema curentului electric are o interpretare în primul rând politică. Relațiile energetice cu Rusia și Belarus sunt o dovadă clară în acest sens. Importuri de electricitate de la inamic Sezonul rece în Ucraina se încheie cu anumite paradoxuri. Dacă în ceea ce privește rezervele de gaze naturale, compania națională Nagtogas înregistreză o valoare record de 16,2 miliarde de metri cubi în depozitele sale subterane, la capitolul energie electrică situația e mult mai complicată. Ucraina poate produce o cantitate semnificativă de energie termică și nucleară, însă aceasta nu a eliminat riscul penelor de curent în iarna 2020-2021. N-au existat probleme în aprovizionarea cu curent electric a utilizatorilor casnici, însă experții pun acest lucru pe seama importurilor de energie electrică din Belarus (începând cu

Staunton, April 7 – Discussions in Turkey about the possibility that Ankara will denounce the 1936 Montreux Convention governing naval transit through the straits have attracted far more attention in Russia than in other countries because Russia would be the big loser if that were to happen, Andrey Nikulin says. The Convention provides both limits and predictability concerning the presence of foreign naval vessels in the Black Sea, and Russia could easily find itself confronted by a far greater naval threat there if the 1936 accord were annulled and Ankara decided to allow more Western ships in, the Moscow analyst says (kasparov.ru/material.php?id=606D32437D925). That Turkey should want to do away with the convention is no surprise. It was imposed on a weak Turkey by outside powers that did not want Ankara to have the power to decide on its own which ships and how many could transit the straits.

The question of how to shut down the «Laundromat” - the operation for laundering dirty Russian money through the City of London - has been actively discussed in Britain in the past few years. But the tone of politicians and analysts has become noticeably harsher. At the June G7 summit in London, MPs from the US and UK are going to promote a global kleptocracy initiative. How the Laundromat Works Unlike other European countries, Britain, for political reasons, has not yet been involved in the exchange of tax information with Russia, making it one of the most attractive destinations for Russian capital, especially in connection with the closure of such well-recognized tax havens as Cyprus and Latvia. According to the statistics published by the Central Bank of the Russian Federation, tens of billions of dollars in foreign direct investment have been funneled to the United Kingdom over the past

Staunton, April 7 – Recently, Russia passed the centenary of the 1917 revolution and soon will pass the 30th anniversary of the disintegration of the USSR in 1991, but despite that, Russians do not have agreed upon answers to the same three basic questions about either of those events, Yevgeny Gontmakher says. They still have not been told by their leaders whether either or both were inevitable, whether either or both were really intended to put Russia on the path toward a flourishing future, or whether either or both could really do anything about underlying Russian realities, the Moscow commentator says (mk.ru/politics/2021/04/07/konec-sssr-tri-voprosa-bez-otvetov.html). Many people have opinions about all of these questions, of course, but the country’s political leadership has not addressed them as such. Vladimir Putin didn’t in 2017, and it seems improbable that he will do so this year, given the political
