Below I present the abridged version of an interview that I conducted with Andrei Tsiganov in St. Petersburg on March 30th.

Mr. Tsiganov is a political activist in Russia. You may not have heard of him personally, but it far more likely that you have heard of some of the activity that he and his organization have been engaged in. In his own words, Mr. Tsiganov is engaged in a lawfare campaign against Liberal forces in Russia and while there are other conservatives operating in Russia, his organization appears to be the largest and most effective, with some actual victories to their name. The much-derided (in the West) anti-LGBT propaganda law passed in Russia was largely the work of him and his organization and the work of Duma Deputy Vitaly Milonov, who became the face of the law. You may or may not remember the British homosexual comedian Stephan Fry coming to Russia to give the Russian people a stern talking to about the values of tolerance and inclusion.

Recently, Tsiganov was active in the fight against the COVID clampdown in Russia, filing lawsuits and providing an alternative perspective to the WEF with the help of his media resource “Katyusha”, which is quite popular in Russia. As an aside, the Covid hysteria has largely been dropped in Russia as a result of the military operation in Ukraine and Mr. Tsiganov has much to say on this topic, so I hope that we can revisit it with him in depth in the future. This time though, we spoke mostly about the state of the Russian government and the media situation in Russia and the sweeping changes that are occurring in civil society. Tsiganov and his people are a fairly good representative of the views and positions of the large patriotic bloc in Russia, which generally wants the government to adopt a more conservative, sovereign position in its national policies, foreign policy and cultural program.

I hope you enjoy it.

Me: Mr. Tsiganov, what is happening within Russia? The shakeups that we have seen in the last weeks are historic, no? Is Russia finally fed up with Liberalism?

Tsiganov: First and foremost, it is important to understand that there is a stark difference between the “deep nation” and the traitor class — the usurpers of Russia’s financial system, its media, and its culture-creators. Many of these traitors have left the country in recent weeks. True patriots don’t abandon their country. We can also refer to these people as “foam” — the foam on the top of the water. In other words, the foam is leaving the country. Alternatively, these people can be thought of as the sores on the Russian body. Many of them are non-Russians, but all of them are people who do not identify with Russia at all. They just used Russia to earn some money, temporarily. This is a positive cleansing process that is occurring now. We should be very thankful for it. Things would have been better had the West imposed sanctions on Russia earlier.

Take Anatoly Chubais as an example. He was one of the most prominent Liberal western agents. It’s a very good sign that he left. He was part of the pro-Western cultural elite in Russia. However, I hesitate to even use such words to describe him because neither he nor the people like him can be considered “elite” or particularly cultured for that matter. Unfortunately, we have to consider the possibility that some of them have may come back. For example, Vladimir Pozner [Channel 1 TV presenter] returned and thinks that he will be able to adjust to the new reality. His show is back on the air. Ivan Urgent [late night show entertainer who fled to Israel] also said that he might come back.

In the meantime, Konstantin Ernst [Channel 1 CEO] has had charges brought up on him. You have to understand, Channel 1 was pushing anti-Russian news on a state channel.

Me: How so?

Tsiganov: Well, they invited many liberal people, people from the pro-West camp, onto their shows and PR’d them. Take Morgenshtern, as an example. This is an entertainer that popularizes drug use to the youth. The government recently kicked him out of the country.

Me: So the poster stunt on Channel 1. Are you saying it was staged?

Tsiganov: It was a deliberate provocation by Ernst. He refused to apologize. It was done to send a message to Putin. The audience for this was the West — the message was written in English, after all. Western media jumped on it. The woman with the sign had a lawyer sitting by ready. It was also a shot fired off Putin’s bow to demonstrate that Ernst and his operation did not approve of his actions in Ukraine.

Me: I see. What changes would you like to see occur within Russia?

Tsiganov: Well, in the constitution it says that ideology as such is banned. Modern Russia was created as a post-ideological country by the West. But the Russian people need an idea and there is now an attempt to create something new. The closest that we have to this is the National Safety Plan put together by the military where a first attempt was made. Several theses were voiced such as the necessity of defending the traditional view of family and fighting back against the anti-Russian historical narrative that is being promulgated in our schools. A second such document came out recently as well: the Project for the Defense of Traditional Values. This document provides guidelines for what projects are allowed to be funded with government money and what people can be allowed to sit in the government by proposing a loyalty test for ministers and bureaucrats. Much is still in the air and depends on the concepts, programs, and ideas that are eventually adopted. But the key point here is that nothing has been adopted yet because of the chinovniks (bureaucrats) refusal to implement it. Take, for example, Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin. This is a Western creature through and through. His whole mindset is Western. He uses neoliberal models in his policies and programs. The entire government is in panic because of this; they don’t know how to do things outside the liberal operating protocol, which is being jettisoned now.

Over the last 2 years, Mishustin has been instrumental in pushing for and implementing the “cyber gulag” and for increasing the cooperation of the Russian government with the World Economic Forum. Mishustin went so far as to open the Center For the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Mishistin’s entire operation is staffed by graduates of the Higher Economic School and employees of Sberbank. [NOTE: The Higher Economic Schools is one of the pre-eminent forces within Russia pushing for neoliberal reforms since the 90s.] These people are Western-educated and, more importantly, they believe in the Western consensus on everything from governmental policy, economic policy, and social issues. Mishustin and his cronies have formed what they themselves refer to as the “cyber spetznaz” and have passed all these laws without the consent of the Russian people. Our Minister of Digital Transformation says that robots make the best administrators — this is the mentality of the man who wants to totally reform our system of governance. Strange as it may sound, Europe and America have better cyber protection laws on their books. No such protections exist in Russia. Luckily, Mishustin and his people have failed to realize their plans because of the war.

Mikhail Mishustin

Me: Pardon me for the direct question: is the current situation good for you and people who support your position?

Tsiganov: This is a war against the West and Western values. Furthermore, Russians are unlike many other peoples because they are pro-big state. The Russian people hope that the government will go to war for them against the Liberal class. People with our values are to be found in the military and the ranks of the FSB [Federal Security Service]. There are lots of patriots in the administration of the president as well. The war has shown us who is who. People in the government thought that it was possible to come to a compromise with the U.S. And now this has changed. This has created more room for internal maneuver for Putin and his allies.

Me: Why did it take Russia so long to do something about Western propaganda on the internet? Pro-Russian content is routinely banned off all social media sites, and it is impossible to put a pro-Russian narrative out on the internet. What was the plan? At least they’re talking about “cyber sovereignty” on the state channels now.

Tsiganov: First and foremost it is necessary to understand that Russia has no plans — only the Soviet Union had plans. [NOTE: Here he means the Soviet 5-year national plans and such.] That being said, Putin tried to create a “Runet” [a program aimed at furthering Russian sovereignty over the internet in Russia]. But the money was diverted and squandered on the digitization plan promoted by Mishustin and his so-called cyber spetznaz. 150 billion dollars were allocated from the budget and only 11 billion went to internet sovereignty projects. The rest went to various digitization schemes based on Western models.

Another silver lining to the current situation: Kaspersky has come out and said that Russia has lost 200,000 programmers. [NOTE: I am not sure that this number is accurate, but scores of big city dwellers have indeed fled Russia. Programmers who have stayed have been discussing the phenomenon on their channels. I personally know several that moved to Poland and Latvia for what it’s worth.] This means that Mishustin’s cyber gulag plan will fall through — he no longer has the political cachet or the cadres to pull it off. That being said, Russia could still create a sovereign internet if the political will was there. We have the talent and resources to do so.

Now, the US considers the internet its sovereign territory and treats it as such. It is part of the US cyber-strategy plan. There is no such thing as a free and universal internet. Do you know who actually does have a sovereign internet?

Me: China?

Tsiganov: Yes, China. Only China has developed a sovereign internet. The project was completed in the fall of last year thanks to a law on servers which effectively banned the transfer of data across borders. This is the way to do it. The Russian government needs to undertake big projects, like China does, not rely on the so-called invisible hand. Sergei Glazyev talks about this — the Minister of Eurasian Integration. But the people who ran Russia relied on the Liberal way of doing things — allowing private, foreign capital decide what gets invested into and how for the last 30 years. As you know, many of these people have fled the country now. Consider the absurdity of the situation: the Alphabet company controls a large part of Sber [an important bank]. And Alphabet runs Google. We can’t have this. We can’t have our enemies controlling our internet.

Me: What will happen next? What measures do you expect in the coming weeks and months?

Tsiganov: The government will now be forced to lean on the patriotic base in the country because the Yeltsin-era people and the various Western-educated technocrats can’t be trusted. They can’t even mobilize the country should Russia need to transition to a war economy. I expect Youtube to be closed down soon. We have the necessary resources and professionals to implement a sovereign “Runet.” All that we lacked was the political will. I hope that we now have a chance to do what should have been done years ago. People with our values and positions finally have a chance of rising up into government positions that will be vacated as as the cleanings continue in the government, media.

    You are truly fulfilling the motto, Mr Slavskiy. Thanks.
    Mr Tsiganov is described as chairman of a commission for the protection of children at the Roskomnadzor communications regulator. So at least he has some clout, unlike Conservative critics of Western MSM.

    We didn’t get anything like this from our previous Man in Moscow, Anatoly Karlin. Probably because Russian Conservatives would regard him as a transhumanist loonie and avoid him.

    Interesting stuff indeed from a country that is in the middle of a storm as a result of Western imperialist intransigence. One would hope that the big neck African pseudo-rulers are awake and doing the math of how the world is moving in a new direction which will sweep many into the dustbin of history together with the West they are so fond of worshipping. Russia is in the forefront of a new reality which, thank Heaven, even it’s own liberal Western snitches are now seeing for themselves. The whole Western ideology has been a Neo-Nazi fascist project since the 1930’s and well after WWII. Russia was misled until now to believe that the project would accommodate them. They only want your land and its resources minus you as an equal. Neo-Nazi fascist racists know too well who is part of them and who is not. They will even quote the Bible to support their evil intentions of racial superiority and manipulation. In Africa, we know too well what they are capable of. We have borne the brunt of their brutality and the wanton thieving of land, resources and livestock for centuries. Poverty on the part of indigenous communities in Africa is a result of what they are now wanting to achieve in Russia.

  5. Rahan says:

    Very interesting interview. So from a certain perspective it looks like with the current crisis Putin also flushed out/filtered out the human capital that would have been acting as agent of/resource of the western neoliberal agenda.

    Whatever the case though, it does seem like Russia and perhaps China will have to go through a generation-long period of paranoia and serious internal discipline in order to make it to the other side of the current world storm.

    Poverty on the part of indigenous communities in Africa is a result of what they are now wanting to achieve in Russia.

    Poverty on the part of Black Africans is the consequence of low IQ peasants, men who don’t want to work and women who breed regardless. The consequence is a lemming-style Growth-Decay Cycle.
    They can never achieve anything that Russia has or has done. You do not have the intelligence and character of native Russians.

    IMO an extremely valuable interview. I had no idea that the WEF/Davos crowd had so much power and influence in Russia.

    Fortunately these NWO activists now find themselves on the wrong side of the Ukraine polarization and are revealed as the traitors that they are. Which is probably of more value to Russia that the Ukraine action itself. They’re now running for their lives and abandoning the country.

    Further benefits are that Russia is a resource independent country, friendly with most of the non-Anglo/European world, and has China providing it with a working model of a Russia First society incorporating financial and digital independence.

    Russia also has an exceptional leader in Vladimir Putin.

    It is unbelievable. A country like Russia with the resources it has should be the best in the world. It is not. It is backward and lacks the intelligentsia. Unlike China, Russia dreams of being “Western” and accepted by Westerners. Putin is in love with the expression of “put partners”. Europeans prefer to call him “Hitler”. Even Turkey behave better than Russia when it comes to defending its interests. I never heard Erdogan calling Europeans “our partners”. Has anyone?
    partners”.
    Can you imagine the disaster if Russia has 1.5 billion Russians? No matter what, corruption means the death penalty in China. God bless China.

    This was bothersome – hadn’t Mr. Tsyganov ever heard of disease prevention?

    As I continued through the piece I got the impression of a know-all fanatic. Yes, some of his ideas were reasonable, like Russia controlling its own internet. But the rest caused me to make a search.

    “Can you imagine that Andrei Tsyganov came to our furry walk Tsaritsyno, Kolomeskaya. He continued to accuse us of pedophilia in front of children. But Skip drove him away. When a high-level official comes to us personally, it shows his madness. Long story short – the Christian radical and anti-vaxer is attacking us (especially me and Skip). Here it is – the price to be a representative of the Moscow Furry Fandom.”

    https://dogpatch.press/2021/12/07/anti-lgbt-russian/

    Russians dressing up in furry animal suits may indeed be a Western Plot to turn Russian children into perverts, but I suspect this wouldn’t be much more of a problem than pedophile priests or Boy Scout leaders are elsewhere.

    What will Mr. Tsyganov want next? A Russian version of the Spanish Inquisition?

  11. @Verymuchalive

    Look at the African people’s reaction to Covid and “vaccines”. Then look at your people’s reaction to Covid and “vaccines”. Look at the African reaction to the Ukraine crisis. Then look at your people’s reaction to the Ukraine crisis. Then come speak of intelligence.
    The fact is that we don’t and can’t know what Africa would have become if white people hadn’t exploited her and drained her resources. Perhaps it still would be a cesspool but in all likelihood, it wouldn’t. Technological advance is not a measure of happiness and most of Africa’s misery is definitely of the West’s doing.

    Chubais is a Jew. Putin is half-jew just like Lenin was. Russia is screwed as long as people like Tsiganov they cannot name the Jewish origins of the “Neo-Liberalism” that they are fighting. This war in Ukraine was a war between Judea and Russia, but the problem is that Russia is still run by Jews who will stab the Slavs in the back. Afterwards, Moscow will look like Berlin in 1945 and then will come the Nuremberg 2.0 trials that will be just as big a sham as Nuremberg 1.0.

    One of the most telling characteristics of this confrontation in Khazaria is that there is only one country on the planet that has so far been allowed to remain neutral: Israel. Once again Jews running the gangster have in Tel Aviv are playing both sides of the conflict.

  14. GMC says:

    Great interview – thanks. I remember Pres. Putin passed a law restricting dual citizens from the top tier of the Government, but just like in the US , this does not work because they have many Zionists in the Gov. that don’t have the dual Citizenship but still pledge their allegiance to the State of Israel and the One World Order. In other words, the 2 passport laws don’t even come close to stopping the problem of borderline or full throttle Treason – apparently – somewhat in Russia but in the US , this treason is rampant. If one punches in on the internet about the Central Bank of Russia, we can see that it is set up just like the US Federal Reserve. They are also contemplating the digital currency for the people of Russia. How far this will go or how restrictive it gets is anybody’s guess.

    ” Hello – my name is Joe Biden and I’m a Zionists, along with my VP Ms. Harris, my ‘family business’, my Cabinet, and all my Agencies..” What part of the programmed US populace missed that warning? Most of them , unfortunately.

    As I’ve been saying, the various civilizations will part ways and solidify into autarkic (and poor) blocks that will have comparatively little international trade.

    As for Bantu, Mobutu said it best: you are Bantu, not Westerners. You have your own life, and that includes jeering at every other civilization in existence. Well, so be it. It worked for you as your ancestors exterminated every other variety of human in Africa except the San and Pygmies, and I suppose that you can’t change. In the meantime, the rest of the world has its own problems.

    How the feck do these Atlanticist Quislings and Fifth Columnists still wield such power after the experience of neo-liberal banditry and popular suffering of the 90s?

    Same way that any market dominant minority does. They act as a unit, have external support, are experienced in running businesses, and are smarter than the locals’ society permits.* This leads to some strange phenomena, perhaps the strangest of which is that Indian traders used to predominate in Africa, while Chinese traders predominated in India proper.
    That and the willingness to influence the local government. It can be convenient for a government to have all businesses conducted by foreigners who can be shaken down and (if necessary) deported when the native born get too upset about things economic.

    Note that analogs to this “rely on powerless foreigners for work” occur in the US. In the US, the “tech companies” have been taken over by Boards of Directors that (in broad terms) froze the companies procedures, then “rationalized” their labor force, to use a technical term that has little to do with rationality and much to do with cost cutting, by hiring cheap labor that could handle routine. Right now, some 3/4 of the “tech” math and engineering work force is foreign born, and about half of these are on short term visas. **
    This amounts to the familiar post-WW II asset stripping, whatever the talk may be of “mature industries”, and has left us with companies that cannot, for example, conceptualize augmented reality, therefore cannot make useful software despite the availability of useful augmented reality hardware. It also leaves the tech companies with a workforce that has no political support in the US save the Left, which (once the Left is bribed by political contributions) has the consequent advantages for the tech companies that any politically powerless workforce anywhere has for its employers. *** In other words, the tech companies are well on their way to zombiehood, like the rest of US industry.

    The Russian Federation, however, does have an advantage in that it remade itself during the 1990s. The current oligarchs are those who supported Putin and Russian centralization, plus (as mentioned in the interview) Russians who attended school in the West. It may be that they are just relics of the 90’s transition, as Tsiganov says, and will be removed from influence as the Russian Federation continues to become more its Russian self. And it may be that a reversion to historical identity will spread to Europe after the US retreats to the oceans.

    * There is always some limit to how smart one can be and still be part of a given society. That’s one reason that armies have an officer vs. NCO society (so the smart guys handle the new stuff, and the routineers handle the routine stuff), and why business copied that structure. Organizationally, there are sharp limits above and below officer and NCO intelligence. To take a more extreme example, Isaac Newton’s family was well off as English families went, but Newton had “genius syndrome” and was not thought of as very smart when he was young. He was never that socially or financially, successful save for his very high mathematical and scientific reputation. https://mathshistory.st-andrews.ac.uk/Biographies/Newton/

    ** https://duckduckgo.com/l/?uddg=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.americanimmigrationcouncil.org%2Fresearch%2Fforeign%2Dborn%2Dstem%2Dworkers%2Dunited%2Dstates&rut=e9258923726ac007efe539a4509901732bfc3a770d764f7710c21a69201a6704
    Note that in the US, a business career in the larger corporations is now essentially closed to non-BIPOCS.

    *** Slavery being one example of a politically powerless workforce. Classical civilization ran on slaves owned by members of the middle classes, as did the US Old South.

    They’re the Russian Westoids who love the West and hate Russia, especially its Asiatic and Soviet past. Most of them identify with the West because they think they’re as ‘White’ as Westerners. And that’s why they promote ‘Western’ values of liberalism, individualism, materialism as opposed to Russian values of traditionalism, nationalism, spiritualism, respectively. It’s a cultural war pitting ‘West’ vs ‘East’.

    I found this article very enlightning. Tsiganov is a personality I never heard about , and honestly I didn’ t collect many information regarding Mishutyn either. That is what is all about , in this struggle between Russia and the West. ” Our values” , which are everything but ours and values, and the surviving of what remains of the european civilization. The National safety movement, something that is sistematically aborted in our once free nations ,is gaining momentum in Russia. This interview strenghten the opinion I always had of Putin , who is a power broker that necessarily mediates and accomodates the interests of the stakeholders who have the leverages of the real power in the financial sphere and control media and are interwined in the international network which is the core structure, the very architecture of the New World Order. Far from being a Fueher , the Russian authocrat act as a monarch and then can switch from a position to another without being held directly accountable of failures deriving by previous policies. There is always someone else who pays the price and Putin , as an arbiter ,rules and deliver. What to expect from this developing situation obviously I do not know, but certain patterns are the same as they ever were. There is an alien elite in Russia wich has no allegiance to Russia neither has any empathy towards russians. Tsiganov point at them and the people of Russia hate them . We all hate them . ” Our values” simply prohibit to even mention them . The National safety movement of Russia will have to deal with them, harshly , if they are serious about their salvation. This is what is all about, the same as it always was : the best have to be cast off , or destroyed. Any national sovereignity, any popular tradition, any creed or faith , have to be erased to condolidate the power of this international superclass which now rules undisputed in the west. Should Russia be defeated in this national upheval , we will be taught for decades toncome of the ferocious attempt by the evil monsters of Moscow , to dominate the world and exterminate our precious masters who so bravely defended ” our values “. Time will tell.

  22. @Miro23

    The Globalist crowd did not have much influence. That’s why so many have now left.

    Even before the War, Russia had already cut itself out off Western financial systems. It raises loans for its sovereign debt, as well as bonds, on its own internal financial markets. Government debt is less than 20% of GDP, little is owed to foreign creditors.
    Russia has developed SPFS to replace SWIFT, the financial messaging system. At present ( before the War: it will be much higher now), over 25% of transactions in Russia use it. In the event of cut-off from SWIFT, it will quickly be installed in the rest.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SPFS

    The vast majority of digital payments in Russia use the indigenous MIR system, not MasterCard or Visa. Ultimately, MIR will be used for virtually all such payments.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mir_(payment_system)

    The digital Ruble has been developed and is on stream. This requires no financial messaging system at all. It is obviously the financial system of the future.
    https://techhq.com/2022/02/digital-ruble-heres-everything-we-know-about-russias-central-bank-digital-currency/

    So Russia already has a well developed self-supporting financial system. Its reliance on Western systems, whether in the City of London or elsewhere, is long gone. These changes have been going on for years now, in some instances well before 2008.

    Putin and his central core of supporters are gradualists. Before the War, the Globalists could be ignored as financial and economic policy was being directed towards autarchy. The Globalists’ influence was very limited and their numbers were dwindling. Like many groups that think they have great influence, but actually have little, the War has been a shock. Their pretensions have been burst. They have 2 options: keep a low profile at home, or flee abroad.

    Russia doesn’t need Chinese advice on financial or economic matters. Neither will they follow it on media matters. China is a one-party state after all. As said, Putin is a gradualist, but War will inevitably speed up changes. Already Facebook, Instagram and others have been banned for anti-Russian propaganda and harbouring paedophile sites, inter alia. Indigenous social media, conforming to Russian standards, will replace them. Ultimately, the World Wide Web will break up into a considerable number of pieces.

    In the context discussed in this article, the internet provides a means for mapping and shaping what’s playfully referred to as Human Terrain.

    The key takeaway from this article is in terms of the dogs that didn’t bark since Russia began its SMO. Much longer than that, actually, but for our purposes consider how thoroughly since February 24, efforts to destabilize Russia internally have utterly failed.

    So much so and so quickly that it should have been apparent that the intended targets of this information war are in the West.

    If you have been in a poker game for a while, and you still don’t know who the patsy is, you’re the patsy.

    What kind of an idiot under the totality of the current circumstances actually believes that Russians aren’t Pareto Principle (80/20) consolidated behind the Russian government and leadership per the objectives outlined?

    Moreover, the pedal to the metal anti-Russia propaganda blast in the West — a clear sign of weakness by its necessity — has strengthened Putin and the Russian government’s position, and its justifications for the actions its taken, both internally and externally.

It sounds like the so called “Russian” are on the run, that’s to say, they’re running back to the “motherland” after spending a few leisure months in the “fatherland” where they found millions of their fellow bloodsuckers, who are all waiting to run back to their own respective “motherlands” because that’s where the loot is, whereas, their fatherland only wanted their ill gotten wealth for down-payment towards the rebuilding of the temple after the mosque has been demolished, post the “holy month”.

    The answer is simple – because the entire White race has an urgent death wish. Remember when it all started? In August 1991, Yeltsin banned the Communist Party, and not a single Communist defended it with his life – even though they were brought up in the spirit of civil war! Imagine a Muslim country that bans the worship of Allah… The Russian people are sick with Christianity, liberalism, pacifism. The Russians consider wrath the highest sin. There is no manly spirit anymore, only thugs and whores rule.

    And the current war – if it is lost, there will be no more Russia. And nobody cares. No mobilisation in Russia. No nuclear bombardment of Ukrainian cities. We White people are a rotting corpse, QED.

    Good point, I think that countries with mega natural resources were conned into thinking that they had to have Investors and Corporations come in and show the State how to extract those resources and market them. This was advantageous to the world banking systems and created the Globalists. Russia, Venezuela and others don’t need any outsiders/oligarchs to come in and take control of their resources. This breeds corruption and offshore currency stashes. They do need help in mechanization and technical advances but those can be contracted out. Does Russia run their huge huge Diamond mines { est. 4Xs more than Africa} or do the Jews? How about all the Gold and other rare earth minerals ? They should be totally run by the State- with maybe a corporate partner at 20%.

    Also, any hi-tech computer parts from Israel, the US and other places all have back doors and can be used to screw you any day of the week. Or make your transportation, electric grids, nuclear power plants etc. etc. etc fail. So, how many countries have already been wired and extorted by these means? 9/11 comes to mind and Fukushima if you like.

    Russia is in no hurry, and anyway it has wars to fight. It’s long term prospects are better than China’s. PR China is in the position Germany was at the turn of the 20th Century with a big population, well developed industry, but no resources. If the world economy and the international financial system collapse China will be in a far worse position than Russia. Russia has resources that will last and doesn’t need to depend on anyone. China will pull through only by keeping on good terms with Russia to provide it with the resources it needs.

    It’s a reasonable joke.

    The USSR did not participate in the colonisation of Africa. What the USSR did however was to dump Ak47s and RPG7s in Africa to kill white colonists. Making those colonies impossible to keep. If that’s a bad thing to have done I’d agree that the USSR nefariously damaged fellow whites. If you disliked European colonial power the Russian/USSR role was that of black liberation. Perhaps there’s a certain Karma in watching Russians and Ukrainians suffer as they armed blackie back in the 60s to 80s to kill Whitey.

    Some of this was also Ukrainian both within and outside the USSR though. The Ukies armed blacks after the Cold War.

    European colonies in Africa nearly all ceased 60 years ago. And you continue to blame the White man.
    The so called “Scramble for Africa” in the late 1900s actually cost the Colonial Powers money over all, rather than making them any. There was no draining of resources.
    And what were black Africans doing before this. Very little. Any writing systems for their languages were devised by Europeans and Arabs. Their contribution to culture, let alone civilisation, was very slight.

    Indeed, it’s not, but misery will make you unhappy, and Africa’s misery is the result of its own population..
    The average IQ of adults in Sub-Saharan Africa is typically 70 or less. The IQ of White Northern Europeans is about 100. An IQ of 70 is about average for an 8 year-old White Northern European Child. Adult black Africans have the intelligence, on average, of European children.

As a Russianist (scholar of all things Russian) and longtime resident of Moscow I’m interested to see what happens to Russia’s soft power after this war. If Moscow wins and kicks America down a notch we could see a rise in interest in Russia. The fate of Russia lies in the balance now. If Russia somehow loses, the country will be destroyed and take many years to be rebuilt after American and Jewish financiers pillage the country.

    So, if the West had left Africa with a tribal society, Africans would be richer today?

    If there had been no introduction of Western equipment to Africa, Africans would be richer today?

    It is impossible to know whether Africa would have developed or not because it was never given a chance to develop as everything of economic value is either controlled or outright owned by Western corporations.

    Well, no, it is quite possible.
    The Europeans were giving Africans* the education and experience needed to move up to middle management positions, and the basic equipment needed to make a contemporary economy productive. In every case where Africans nationalized these companies, the new management made them economically non-viable — that is, proved unable to manage nationalized companies.
    Africans did not develop when left as tribal entities, and did not develop when European companies were nationalized.

    So you are left with “everything of economic value is either controlled or outright owned by Western corporations”. It is the only way Africa has of converting their mineral deposits, wood, etc. into manufactured goods needed to support the African population, which is growing apace.

    To me, it seems that you are complaining both about the Europeans leaving Africa and the Europeans returning to Africa. Y0ur objective is not entirely clear, but may be (a) getting more companies to nationalize, or (b) getting more favorable terms from companies that are willing to do business with you. There is another possibility, which is the military and political custom of jeering at enemy foreigners.

    This leaves you with the Chinese, who have the same complaints about Africans that the other races have. We will see how that works out. A word of warning, however: China right now appears to be at the end of a capital boom, and seems likely to drastically reduce its projects in Africa and elsewhere.

    You are quite likely to get what you claim to want: the rest of the world to ignore you while it minds its own affairs.

    Labeling a republic as if it were a democracy is a subterfuge that has been very successful in advancing the cause of privately owned, market (wall street, London exchange etc) promoted, wealthy global corporate interest in quasi-colonized lands. The disguise allows to impose the Republic form of government on <=democracy thinking societies. Democracy is blamed for what actually is a Republic? The confusion serves to camouflage corporate ownership of the powers that control the quasi-colonized nation state. A few corporations can buy the few Republicans who are supposed to get elected to run the show on behalf of the governed, but the bureaucracies can only do what the never elected republicans owned by the corporations dictate.

    Oligarchs in republics make the decisions and PHd staffed bureaucracies execute the decisions in spite of, and often in direct disregard for, the political and constitutional systems billed to the public as majority outcomes of self determined nation state decisions.

    You mean like the intercepted phone call where Victoria Nulland discusses how to stage a coup d’etat so as to be able to install a puppet regime friendly to the Jewnited States, and not Putin? The sound recording can still be found on the internet…

    You mean like George Soros publicly admitting on an interview that he financed the Maidan unrest that provoked President Yanukovich to flee for his life? The video of the interview is available online…

    You mean the presence of John McCain in Kiev to congratulate the new “leaders” of Ukraine, by mere coincidence all of them Jewish?

    By the way, Victoria Nulland is also Jewish… Another mere coincidence, I suppose.

    Given that the US is rapidly ramping up its hypersonic missile capabilities, Russia would be well advised to get some of those nuclear-loaded missiles heading in the right direction as fast as possible. There will be a price to pay, and a severe one, and this is an option serious people around the world do not want to entertain, but the people who run the United States are going to destroy Russia, if possible, anyway; it is better to strike first, because this is an existential struggle between Russia and murderous psychopaths.

    Nuland merely expressed agreement with what was already widely known and tried to get the UN involved in mediation. Go and read or listen to it again and check my comment archives to realize that you were fooled by a fake narrative.

    …has exactly documented the Jewmerican coup d’etat in the Ukraina (and not just that).

    You are simply lying, as the only recourse, because what you claimed has not been documented. On the contrary, I linked to a message that documented that this was not the case. Nothing in your response indicates that you have even bothered to read and digest it. The long awaited change in government on February 22, 2014 in Kiev came as a consequence of a diplomatic initiative involving representatives from EU countries (Germany, France, UK, Poland), along with Russia, but not the US, which was not directly involved.

    The most pro-Russian Western academic available today, Mearsheimer, could not contradict this fact but tried to obfuscate it. Even Putin acknowledged that the unpopular Ukrainian klepocrat surrendered. McCain and Soros taking satisfaction about this outcome, as did many millions of others, does not constitute evidence of US instigation. Your cartoon-level rationale seems to be: Because you assume that Nuland is Jewish, this in itself constitutes sufficient evidence that she must have orchestrated a coup d’etat.

    It is amazing to witness with what zeal you and others continue to cling to a discredited propaganda narrative, repeating it endlessly while ignoring the contradictory evidence, just going around in circles of sheer lunacy. You have been helping to degrade the level of discourse with your fantasies.

    Queen quer fumb that..

    (Actually do not want to discuss the Jews’ velvet resp. violent revolutions here, but you are asking for it – why? What’s your interest? Not the truth!)

    Viktor Yanukovych served twice as prime minister, second time till the violent ousting on 22 Feb. 2014.
    To the 20th of Feb. Israhell itself had sent irregular troops including the “Maidan snipers” to their Euromaidan or so-called “revolution of dignity”.
    The Jewish enterprise used a notorious Father Mikhail Arsenica from Ivano-Frantivsk oblast in Galicia and a Judeochristian zealot Ivan Bubentzhik from Lviv to shoot two police officers of the Berkut in the neck in Kiev (on Feb 20th). The Israeli snipers themselves could kill 48 anti-government forces and 2 more police leaders to really get it going. The filmed evidence is despite the constant Youtube deletions available.
    The very next day (Feb 21, 2014) Israhell had already (!) a EUSSR-Ukraine contract ready to be “negotiated” on in Kiev by Jewerman foreign agent and now president, non-elect Frank-Walter Steinmeier (FRG), Laurel Fabel of all Frogs and Radoslave Sickhorseski of Pooland with Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych encircled and his political opponent Jewtali Klitschcunt aggressive as usual. Have a look at the films and the intimidation of VY even at the signing of that prep up. See also the Nuland taking on “fuck the EU” with her commenting on what people the JewS wants incl. the clitchcunt.
    The text of the treaty (the Minsk protocol) was, as customary in the “Western community of values” withheld from the public till much later. The treaty “provided” for
    1. Within 48 hours after the signing of this agreement will be adopted, signed and promulgated a special law that will restore the action of the Constitution of 2004, as amended by this time. The signatories declare their intention to create a coalition and form a national unity government within 10 days thereafter.
    2. Constitutional reform balancing the powers of President, government and Parliament will be started immediately and completed in September 2014.
    3. Presidential elections will be held immediately after the adoption of the new Constitution, but no later than December 2014.
    Even the violently stipulated Jewunity gvt. agreement did not contain the ousting of the president!
    Vladimir Lukin, explaining the non-signing of the agreement, stated that “Moscow has decided not to sign these agreements for a very valid reason, actually – don’t really understand the situation with those who are the subject of this agreement,” agreement “is not visible forces and those who have to implement”
    On February 22, 2014, the Ukrainian parliament declared VY deposed “in the wake of militant unrest” (initiated by the Jewnighted States of Israhell) despite the reached agreement. The parliament could not oust the president. The president is elected by the people of Ukraine. An impeachment was not possible.
    I still remember the takings of armed JewS agents in the office of the president.
    Not only Yanukovych, but Russia and others consider VY ouster as illegal to this day.
    On Feb. 23 this creature was installed (installed!) as “acting” president:


    Russia came to the last minute rescue of VY’s life, because it was a coup d’etat and not a regular change of gvt./presidency.
    VY was then granted asylum on February 27, 2014.

  105. …the violent ousting on 22 Feb. 2014.

    You can’t seem to get over the fact that Yanukovych effectively surrendered by having consented to the agreement with the opposition and then fled the country to avoid likely prosecution, so you made up a story of “violent ousting“, which is melodramatic, like “feared for his life“. Of course you ignored the fact that he was highly unpopular by that time, in part because of his earlier efforts, in January, to violently crush the demonstrations, which included torture and killings, and motivated efforts for the EU diplomatic initiative.

    It is a reversal of reality to attribute unspecified violence to the parliament, or to imaginary Jewish coup instigators. (None of the three main opposition leaders were Jewish.) The taped Nuland conversation had already became public in early February, yet it was only exploited years later to concoct a fake narrative appealing to those who were not aware of what had actually happened, also to induce naïve people to think the conversation was about a plot and feel sorry or outraged that Ukrainians had finally gotten rid of a murderous kleptocrat.

    Russia, unlike America or China, doesn’t need to ban hostile propaganda. On the contrary, it strengthens them in several ways.
    It would be a good idea to choke off foreign money, though. Most liberals would die and be dead if Soros didn’t have them on a firehose-sized drip feed.
    Start assuming money is foreign until proven otherwise. If foreign, start cancelling transactions unless specifically approved. (E.g. Gazprom.) It’s not free-market money and it’s very important not to pretend it is.

    the message was written in English, after all.

    Imagine the Jan 6 protestors all had signs written in Cyrillic. They rant on and on about Russian collusion because they are interfering inside Russia. Narcissists always project.

    Well, in the constitution it says that ideology as such is banned.

    lol
    The term “ideology” literally refers to any set of ideas. The only way to not have an ideology is to have a bilateral lobotomy.

    I can indeed believe that this is what America wants for Russia.

    Putin should pick a transcendent mission. Or even a very difficult mission, like moon bases or a quantum computer. He should then announce this mission, this purpose, and invite Russia to join him.

    Bam. Ideology.

    Suddenly Russia doesn’t merely exist to go on existing. Russia has meaning. Russia is for something. “Why is it better for Russia not to break off from Europe/Asia and slide beneath the waves?” “Because then we won’t get next-gen computers.”
    Of course, this also means Russia can fail.
    As it turns out, the opportunity to fail is one of the greatest, most profound blessings.

    I think Putin should pick the apotheosis of philosophy or the ultimate syncratic religion…but that’s because these are what I picked. For some reason I would be okay with him funding some colleagues for me.

    “Discredited”… A single word gave you away…

    It happens to be the most appropriate word in that context: “discredited propaganda narrative“. Since I was referring to an entire narrative rather than a specific claim, alternative terms like “disproved” or “debunked” would have been less suitable. For you to then conclude that the correct use of such a common word in itself already sounds suspiciously Jewish reflects poorly upon your own mental condition.

    …George Soros admitted on a videotaped interview…

    Even though in the message, to which you responded, I had explicitly mentioned that citing the subsequent satisfaction of McCain and Soros did not constitute evidence of US instigation, contrary to your earlier suggestion, you just couldn’t resist invoking Soros again. Apparently it never occurred to you that Soros could have been typically exaggerating his own (indirect) role, as a financier of various advocacy organizations, after the outcome of the Maidan revolution, so as to enhance his fundraising appeal.

    You still want to entertain the highly presumptuous belief that the large demonstrations would not have occurred without Soros, and the kleptocrat president would not have surrendered and fled the country without Nuland. Imputing their alleged incidental involvement, however trivial, as causally necessary toward the eventual outcome, not only constitutes a logical fallacy (post hoc ergo propter hoc) but also confirms your delusional state of mind.

    The inherent hypocrisy of your allegations and accusations highlights a common sentiment among commenters here, explicitly condemning Jewish chauvinism while tacitly glorifying Russian chauvinism, implying it was really just a barely veiled display of jealousy. The more sensible approach, namely of opposing both or all manifestations of chauvinism, seems to be beyond your grasp. Being cognitively challenged like that strongly correlates with low intelligence – or is it primarily a vodka abuse problem in your case?

    “The text of the treaty (EU-Ukrainian contract from the 21st of Feb. 2014)…”
    The Jewnited States of America with its European vassals prepared and carried out the coup d’état when President Yanukovych refused to sign a 900 pages EU treaties in Vilnius in the fall of 2013. It was achieved after “ChristMess” in the beginning of the new year 2014 with the illegal deposition of Yanukovych as the popularly elected president in the not unauthorized Rada together with the illegal installation of an unelected alien government with Jews (less than 1 % of the population) in the key positions.
    The ZionLendSki government is also a minority gvt., especially since it was only possible with the illegal incarceration of Nadiya Savchenko.
    The same is now happening with incarceration of the current opposition leader who also has a popular majority versus the ZionLendSki regime.
    The fact of the criminal Jewish coup d’etat in the Ukraina has also been confirmed in the courts and various exhausting expert reports incl. one from the Univ. of Ottawa.
    The Jew is not only the most sneaky but also the most violent creature on earth.

    If the Ukraina had kelptocrats before the Jewish coup it certainly got total annihilators with it.

    On Sept. 26, 2013, National Endowment for Democracy President Carl Gershman, who has become a major neocon paymaster, took to the op-ed page of the neocon Washington Post and called Ukraine “the biggest prize” and an important interim step toward toppling Russian President Vladimir Putin.

    At the time, Gershman, whose NED is funded by the U.S. Congress to the tune of about \$100 million a year, was financing scores of projects inside Ukraine training activists, paying for journalists, and organizing business groups.

    Carl Gershman was born into a Jewish family. Along with the Kagans’ clan, Gershman was an active proponent of the Nazification of Ukraine. Carl Gershman is a sample of a Judeo-Nazi.

    The seemingly irrational mass shooting and killing of the protesters and the police on February 20 appear to be rational from self-interest based perspectives of rational choice and Weberian theories of instrumentally-rational action. … The massacre of the protesters and the police represented a violent overthrow of the government in Ukraine and a major human rights crime.

    …Yanukovych as the popularly elected president…

    The 2010 election was officially contested because of irregularities in the eastern regions of the country, just as it existed in the US presidential election, due to voter fraud, in November 2020, so the term “popularly elected” is rather dubious. What is not in dispute is that he would certainly not have been “popularly elected” in the early elections in 2014, stipulated by the February 21, 2014 agreement. This recognition prompted his proactive response, which was perfectly understandable to almost anyone following events at the time: Flucht nach vorne.

    The large demonstrations began spontaneously in November 2013 because a majority of the population had stronger affinities toward Europe than to Russia. (This prevailing attitude has become poignant in the wake of Russia’s brutal war of aggression.) Becoming a candidate for EU membership, a long-term goal, would have required curtailing rampant corruption and cronyism. Russia preferred Ukraine to remain a subservient kleptocracy, like itself. Of course the demonstrators were supported by western powers, which does not mean that foreign powers instigated the widespread dissent.

    It is highly presumptuous and delusional to pretend that millions of Ukrainians were somehow being manipulated by a few Jews into favoring a more western orientation, or that without an alleged coup, orchestrated by Nuland, they would not otherwise have been able to get rid of their criminal president. It is primarily the totalitarian fascists and blinded Russian sympathizers that are still so terribly upset that he finally surrendered and fled the country more than eight years ago. Do you know of any president of a country that maintained his or her own private zoo?

  123. So how much do you get paid for your evil agitations and manipulations around here?

    “The large demonstrations” were anything but spontaneous. They were organized by the Jews and not just, but especially after Ukraine’s refusal to sign a 900 page treatise of surrender of sovereignity in September 2013.
    The first Jewish coup was already with Jewess Timoschenko 10 years earlier. For that they trimmed even western fashion into orange colours at that time.
    The Jew worked on Ukraine just as he worked on Russia herself. The evil collapse of the USSR is his work and has brought the most horrendous suffering.
    Every Russian and Ukrainian Oligarch is a fucking Jewish thief and murderer.
    “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.”

    May the Jewish war in the Ukraina and Novorussia be the beginning of the end of the Jew incl. people like you.

    If you feel so fervently convinced about your opinion, then why have you nonetheless taken sides on behalf of Russian totalitarianism and aggressive violence under Putin? Why did you not even bother to comment in the thread pertaining to the recent essay here by Andrew Joyce, Putin’s Holocaust Obsession, which highlighted Putin’s documented association with Jewish oligarchs, religious leaders from the Lubavitcher sect, and promoters of a distorted victimization narrative?

    I rather favor the idea of using my country (whichever that might be) as a means “to make some money.”
    Or, stated differently, I should prefer a country that might allow me, as much as possible, to prosper, feed my family, perhaps enjoy a creature comfort or two, maybe even see a grandchild or two while my health still allows me.
    Perhaps I sound rootless. Perhaps my fealty must forever remain locked into whatever polity reigns over the piece of land (or water) in which I was born. Perhaps I am for all my life bound to serve that polity, or its successors, and my children and grandchildren in their turns.

  129. Russia has a long tradtion of modernizing by importing complete systems from abroad. Doing things from the ground up is rare. The steel workds in Mariupol (US and Belgian), Dontesk (Welsh) and Lugansk (Scottish) were all foreign. They were all built using imported parts. All of them imported the furnance bricks necessary to smelt the iron. The alleged Russian word for furnace brick, Dinas, is the name of the site in Wales that made them.

    Import subsititution is no exception. There have been 1695 approved and funded projects since 2015. They have overwhelimingly been in food production and pharmaceuticals. Some software too, notably 1C.

    I know a lot about the food projects. Many large production units have been built for chickens, eggs, pigs, salad crops, dair, beer and bread production were built on a turn key basis by European firms. There were Russian builders of such plants but only on a very small scale with ad hoc technology and low productivity. Russia has boosted production so much that, aided by a drop in demand due to reduced living standards, it has been exporting chicken and pork.

    This is all to be lost because there are modern Dinas bricks.

    3 day old chicks, boar semen, tomato and other seeds, bull semen, hops are largely imported. Large scale processing plants are built aroaund breed characteristics like feed consumption, growth rate, maturity date, size. They can’t operate without the exact breed. Without the genetic material from Europe they are stranded assets. Brewers like Carlsberg and Anheuser Busch are seling up. This is said to be in response to reputational consequences of staying in Russia. Actually they haven’t got a hop supply chain they can use.. In the case of beer Turkish and South African firms might step in. For the rest, no. TheChinese have production problems of their own due to animal disease and Dovid. The South Americans were badly burned by Russian business practices from 2015 onwards when they were courted as alternatives to European food suppliers.

    In the coming months the Russian food supply will dwindle.

    MEanwhile, SAP which holds 48% of the ERP market in Russia is withdrawing. When contracts come to an end they will not be renewed. Russian manufacturing and retail distribution will descend into chaos. Some military suppliers use 1C but even there tank and anti aircraft system factories have shut due to lack of componments.

    These factors will not instantly shut down Russia but in months time there will have been a severe crash in living standards.

  131. The Northern Wolf’s sight of Unruly Russia might be heard too:
    “From time immemorial, we Russians have only one enemy. And now he rules our country. Illegally. RF (Russia) is a foreign management company (not a state, but a firm – Federation) in the USSR, registered in England, criminal and illegal, consisting entirely of Jews. Occupiers and enemies on our land. The same Jew Hitler. Back in the 90’s they seized power and still hold it to this day. By force! In fact we are a colony and Zp. The military commissariats in Russia were disbanded more than 10 years ago, and everyone. who serves now is listed as part of the army and Zp and only performs the tasks and orders assigned by them. Putin and his superiors have successfully completed the stage of completing the collapse of the USSR. Now comes the stage of cleansing the territories from us – by our own hands.

    Ukrainians and Russians lost. as soon as they started shooting at each other, because we are one people with one haplogroup R1A – R_odin_A – RODINA. We are one sort and one people (OUR ROD). Ukraine is the outskirts of Russia, on the edge. The Jews made them Ukrainians – Jew Kulish invented the Ukrainian language in the late 19th century, and Jew Bender pitted a single people by the principle of Divide and Conquer, and they will not rest until they wipe us off the face of the earth.”

    Interesting insights…
    Russians used to come to Germany for special medical treatments, till the Jew decided Russia must be sanctioned and well off Russians have to seek out Israel. After the first round of Jewish sanctions dully complied with by the lackeys on Germany – when Russia had the funny idea that a Jewish coup d’etat in Kiew could be bad for the people – friendly Israel showed compassion and took the Russian medical business from Germany to Israel.
    The Turks, as the Jews prime hyena for special deals, is now, together with Israel taking up the fallouts of their own sanctions business.
    The problems you have been describing, will not come into effect, because the Jews have a heart for Russia (sic), just like the Turks, and are more than happy to double up on their sanctions business by having the central European slave hounds reinforce sanctions and by Israel and Turkey circumventing the Jewish sanctions on the former USSR (always at the Jews discretion).

    There is a simple solution:
    Destroy Israel, remove Turkey from the Bosporus and Europe altogether, nuke another 6000 objects incl. Vatican and Big Money.

    As a consultant brought in by the Russian Academy of Sciences to review Russian innovations and practices, I can speak with my own authority to say that quantity is not quality. Graduating in engineering did not mean working in engineering. Also the quality was extremely low. VEry little original work was being down. Typically they were 3-5 years behind just on the science with no thinking going on about turning research into products.

    No one needs to conquer to find resources. Resources have to be sold to be useful. They are also sold at market prices. There is a rent to be extracted because markets are imperfect but even for OPEC it is not unlimited. Japan has almost none. The UK few. They are both much wealthier than Russia.

    Not only that, adding value matters. Resources concentrate wealth in the hands of a few rentseekers. In a dmomcracy like Canada it is spent on public services. In autocracies like the Gulf states or Russia rather more goes to the elite via outright seizure or corruption. Equality is very hard to deliver. And again, the resource curse/Dutch disease makes adding value difficult as it is cheaper to import. If wealth is somewhat evenly distributed, guest workers are needed to do the service jobs. I’d focus elsewhere for Russia’s salvation.

    There’s something about private zoos in post Soviet culture. The former governor of Saratov, introduced by Yeltsin to Clinton as the next president, kept a private zoo. So does Kadyrov.
