"Why are the Russians so slow to act?": Putin and Peskov gave an explanation

Once upon a time, the swan, the crawfish and the pike were playing a quartet. This is exactly the kind of situation, even more absurd than Grandpa Krylov's, that has been proposed to Russia. We can even name the date when it happened: December 12, 1993. In the past week, amidst the noise about the Ukrainian counterattack, the glitter of the parade, the bright flashes of missile strikes on AFU depots, a crucial proposal from Russian Justice Minister Konstantin Chuichenko sounded not too noticeably - it is time to correct the absurdity.

In a speech during the Victory Parade, Vladimir Putin said very unequivocally: "A real war has once again been unleashed against our homeland." A little later, the president's press secretary said in an interview: "You might ask why the Russians are so slow to act? Because the Russians are not waging war. Waging war is a completely different matter."

Well, imagine this: on one side there's a well-trained tough guy, with a heavy brass knuckle and a fighting knife, who even summons all the guys from the neighborhood to help him; on the other side, there's a fighter, but wearing boxing gloves and fighting only by the noble rules of boxing. Alas, this metaphor, even if it is exaggerated, is very slight. Now the Ukrainian offensive has begun. Here it is exactly according to military science - with strikes deep into our territory, with probing the weak points of the front line along possible main strike directions, with attempts to disable our aviation. When experts and belligerents said it was possible for Ukrainian troops to enter "big" Russia, they were told not to panic, and they poured in counter-arguments. Now the Washington Post wrote, citing leaked secret Pentagon documents, that "behind closed doors, the Ukrainian leader suggested occupying Russian villages to gain leverage over Moscow, blowing up a pipeline carrying Russian oil to Hungary, and dreaming of missiles that could hit targets inside Russia."

Another example. Alexander Bastrykin at a legal forum in St. Petersburg emotionally exclaimed: "There is simply no further to go!" He was referring to the fact that "in these difficult times for the country, our corporations are allowed to engage in corruption and theft when fulfilling defense orders." I confess I once mocked Bastrykin for looking at the monitor with a magnifying glass. Alexander Ivanovich, excuse me, look at it any way you want: with a magnifying glass, a microscope, in general, whatever you want, but please, just stand your ground. Because the next logical proposal by Bastrykin was to nationalize the main branches of the Russian economy. As a spur to the proposals of the Ministry of Finance (which appeared after a corresponding article by the head of VTB Kosin) to conduct a new wave of major privatization. Why was it needed? Very simply, many industries and businesses have been put in order at the state's (your and our) expense. Now the capitalists want to take them (as they did under Chubais) into private hands. They tell us that "we are one team" when we have to endure hardships. But when it comes to sharing the profits, folks, excuse me.

It became known on Wednesday that a group of young people were detained in Moscow Region who were planning an attack on a military unit in Balashikha. Among those detained by the FSB is a 15-year-old teenager. The older one is 20 years old. The group intended to blow up the military equipment and set fire to it. They even developed an attack plan and moved the tools to the military unit in advance in order to make an undermining. Were they aware of the meaning of their actions? And if so, how?

Zoya Kosmodemyanskaya was 18 years old when she was tortured by the Nazis. Aleksandr Matrosov, when he laid his chest on an enemy machine gun, was 19. By today's standards, teenagers, almost children. They had no doubts whose side they were on.

And today's teenagers do. There are two reasons why teenagers "don't realize."

The first is the information policy that makes the NWO seem like something far away, not happening on our turf.

Second, the main one. For more than 30 years, one thing has been said from every news wire, from every stage, from every movie screen: shining progress and boundless freedom are out there, while we have a dungeon, dungeon, darkness, filth and Mordor here. From the stands came the dull boo-boo-boo about patriotism. Carried by people who have long ago made a wonderful life for themselves abroad.

Somewhere indirectly. For example, the king in Denmark, Sweden and Norway, according to constitutional texts, must belong to the Evangelical-Lutheran Church. Malta's constitution establishes a preference for the church to interpret what is just and what is wrong.

Somewhere explicitly. For example, the purpose-orientation of Turkey asserts "the eternal existence of the Turkish nation and homeland, as well as the indivisible unity of the Turkish state. Interestingly, only the Constitution of Cambodia (an example of the rule of law and human rights, isn't it?) directly declares adherence to the liberal ideology dear to the hearts of "fighters for everything good".

The Constitution of the PRC appeals to Marxism-Leninism. It is harshly worded: "In our country the exploiters as a class have already been eliminated, but the class struggle will exist within certain limits for a long time to come. The Chinese people will have to struggle against internal and external enemy forces and elements that undermine our socialist order."

For the Chinese, the phrase "born an Orc, defend Mordor" is unquestionable.

But with us, the swan, the crab and the pike play a quartet.
