Russia is a failed-state now.
The leader of Russian biggest commercial bank Sberbank Herman Gref claimed today that Russia is sinking fast because it couldn't 'suit the new world order where natural sources are useless' and he also said that 'Sberbank's IT-system which is cost billions of rubles is useless too'.
Gref's speech was about the demand of reforms in Russia and the first reform must be country management reform. In other words we need to build a new country. Again.
I literally cry now. Why are we, Russian citizens, supposed to suffer everytime because of stupid fucktards ruling this land?
Remember when 85% something were happy when Crimea got annexed?
The Russians are used to have harsh times since centuries. I guess as long as they have bread and vodka they are fine about it. I. haven't seen anyone demonstrating when Putin build monumental billion dollar graves like Sotschi or for other useless because temporary sports events.
>Herman Gref was born in the Kazakh Soviet Socialist Republic (now Kazakhstan) into a family of ethnic German deportees who were exiled there in 1941.
Hmmmmmmmm I wonder why those ethnic Germans left Germany in 1941??
This. Pride and culture is more important than affluence. Struggle and strong cultural identity is what is saving the Slavic world now.
Also, it's too bad Poland and Russia have such a fraught history - it would be great if the entire Central and Eastern European world - along with Russia - could band together and then maybe strengthen ties with Brazil, China, Japan, etc. I still think that a multipolar distribution of world power is better for anyone, and globalism needs to be resisted at all costs.
>it couldn't 'suit the new world order
Its better to die on your feet than live on your knees, good luck Russia.
Rest in peace :(
The land of the Phoenix will be missed
He tried his best.
But the global powers at be were too powerful
oh, so you cry and blame outside influences?
i'll spell it out for you, diversify your economy. the fact that you thought it was a good idea to place all your bets on your strong petrol dollar was, and will always be, retarded. of course, having more than a child's understanding of government would help a lot of your population.
secondly, and i mean this with all sincerity, assassinate your bullshit pseudo-dictator Putin. stop thinking he's infallible.
and don't listen to moronic anons telling your Pride is better than food. Muslims have no lack of pride, it doesn't save your soul or earn you back a glorious country. there's a reason why pride is a deadly sin.
it's always better to have real confidence, backed by real data.

You are totally right, And btw this:
All proper food is imported in Russia. Remember how you used to send us 'Bush legs' in 90s. Our domestic food is for animals literally. I can't eat it. Of course I will when shit will hit the fan but I will die soon because of diseases.
We already have Jews. Seems like Jews are Jewing, as always.
He is the only Russian economist who tells true things nowadays I guess.
Thank you. At least someone can feel comfortable living in a prosperous country.
I didn't allow them. I voted for Prokhorov who is our fellow Trump. A billionaire who used to earn all the money himself. But muh democracy...
That's funny, but no. 1 bln $ I guess.
Interpals, Topface, VKontakte. Save as many as you can please.
You will not understand anything anyway.
It seems that Obama plan of destroying Russia with very low oil prices, with a little help from the Saudi, is working well.
My bad, it actually improved after they threw off Communist shackles. however...
you do realize the US has more arable land than any nation in the world right? the reason we can export so much beef is because we have ludicrous amounts of animal feed due to entire states that are almost all farmland.
meanwhile, Russian farming techniques LITERALLY DESTROYED the Aral Sea. then again, we're propping up California drought conditions, so eh.
Why do my parents, who grew up in Russia and came to Germany 20+ years ago, say that food doesn't taste the way it is supposed to here in Germany?
I grew up in Germany and have to admit that meat and especially vegetables taste better in Russia.
I can provide safety to any of your young attractive cousins.
31 white male
In good shape and healthy
Never married, no kids
Been told I'm good looking and a catch but I don't have time to waste in the dating game here due to work demands. If the cousin provides me a child we'll obviously marry and send money back to help every month. I live in a state that refuses to grant alimony to green card holders fyi.
> meat and especially vegetables taste better in Russia.
They are not Russian. Azerbaijani, Chinese, Tajikistani, but not Russian. Russian vegetables can be found only in rural areas.
ayyy, because you elect stupid fucktards, your main government was fucking jewish communists for fucks sakes. Go start a small political activist party based on nationalistic libertarian ideologies, then when shit gets destroyed you'll have your foot in the game. then become the leader russia needs.
Are you the same russian from yesterday who claimed Russia has the highest taxes in the world, and that russians are starving in the streets because you get paid so little you cant afford food?
You're literally clinically retarded.
> You will not understand anything anyway.
Google Tlanslate is not perfect but I can get most of it.
Anyway, yeah, he is right that betting on natural resources is outdated thinking. You guys really need to diversify more.
How long before Russia turns into another North Korea extorting resources from the rest of the world using nukes as collateral?
Veggies from old grannys at the basar are great. They grow them themselves, why should they be worse than our western vegetables? Orenburg btw. Food in Moscow was not too different either.
>Why are we, Russian citizens, supposed to suffer everytime because of stupid fucktards ruling this land?
you are not suffering because of your leaders you are suffering because the powers that be want to bring russia to its knees
even if putin might be retarded and horrible leader and whole nation might be run like a joke but atleast your leader isnt LOW ENERGY
and you may always come to finland
finland people are nice and polite and rich
but remember we want russian women also and oil and money and gas
>billions of rubles
How much is that ? 2-3 Euro cents ?
Naah im just joking, rusbro.
You need innovation. why are there not people researching into and creating alternatives? Money is money and if Putin doesn't care then the Russian population can do their own thing yes?
> comfy subsistence farming lifestyle in rural areas
> tfw picrelated
Comfiness intensifies. Don't even tell me about cherry-picking. Every country looks like this except of Southern part of Russia which will be annexed by Caucasians asap.
Yep I thought about it. I will go to Moscow (i'm from Saint-P) if Russia will be struggled by strong economical issues and will try to make us a bright future.
I don't know wtf you are talking about. But you can check it's all real. Proofs are ITT.
>Russia fell for the muh natural resources and muh IT memes
this is what i read on the subject pretty sure, tho it's been awhile:
"The destruction of the Aral began in Moscow in the 1950s, when Soviet economic planners decided, with the confidence of people wielding absolute power, to order the transformation of Central Asia’s dry lands into the world’s largest cotton belt.
The planners' imagination was immense, their logic simple. They would divert the vast waters of the Amu and Syr rivers into thousands of square miles of adjacent desert and steppe.
The inevitable decline of the Aral would pose no problem. According to some versions of the proposal, the lakebed itself would be turned into a zone of cotton and rice farms. "They decided that the sea was not necessarythat the value of the cotton would be greater than the loss of the fish," said Yusup Kamalov, an environmentalist and energy researcher in the Aral region who reported seeing maps of the plan.
Beginning in 1960. the state built dams and reservoirs on the Amu and Syr rivers. It dug canals to carry their waters into the desert, razed riverine forests and built state-run cotton farms in their place."
This is our regularly daily anti-Russian forum shill, hes been here for a couple weeks now.
I think something big is going to happen, they really are trying to change our opinion with daily propaganda.
They want a leftist cultural marxist US puppet, they are pushing for regime change but need to battle the 80% support and things like 4/5 people in the UK rather having Putin as leader than Cameron, same in the US pretty much.
>Why are we, Russian citizens, supposed to suffer everytime because of stupid fucktards ruling this land?
'Cause you (Russian citizens) elect those fucktards who rule your land.
You must stay strong Russia. America has 100s of trillions of debt and unfunded liabilities. We are swamped with non whites. This shit is going to fail and our entire existence will be in question.
I know you have hard times, Russia is a backwards Country with backwards people. Opening up to the west is just begging to be raped.
Look to your serf ancestors, this is how you Slavs are destined to live. Believe in emperor Putin, he is doing his best.
i have no idea what kind of jew stuff you talking about here
you implying that GMO is actually bad like hippies make it out to look like?
dude nothing has improved the food safety durin past 100years bigger than genetic manipulation has
also its a fact that russia barely even produces its own food
finland exports litterally fuckloads of food to russia since they cant make it themselves so dont try make it look like they would be self sufficent or anythign lmao
Even a broken clock is right on occasion.
They might fall economically, but at least by then they have had the correct social policies in place and the population will flourish in ways that would seem impossible in such economical climates.
You realize russia forcing communism on you then is legitmately the only thing that is saving you from this new communism right?
Ex-Soviet regions are the only ones resisting this cultural marxist bullfuck because they spent generations experiencing it.
I'd trade an migrant crisis with an economic crisis any day now.
You can always rebuild a country from nothing if its people are brave enough, but you can't do anything with shitskins living on welfare.
Russia is, they are building a fuckton of greenhouses to become fully independent of food imports.
Once they do that IF they have enough time for it to become self sustaining they will be fine
Lol yea they are still sanctioned, but the JIDF shills are trying to make it sound like its Putins fault or something and not the jews.
Same thing they did to Harper, one big reason we have weedman is because the marxists spread a lie that Harper didnt do well on the economy, meanwhile Canada was the best western country to live in for the entire recession and only when the jews/saudis fucked up oil, and Alberta elected commies, and we elected federal socialists did it really shit the bed.
So yea, daily JIDF shills now making it sound like Putin isnt the best world leader alive, Im actually thinking it might just be Robespierre changing tactics since he gets called out as JIDF every time he tries to shit on Russia and use his proxy tactic where he uses the Russian flag to call everyone burgers and give up terrible arguments, against himself on the Robespierre tag on a US proxy.
This is probably what hes doing now instead, JIDF regularly switch tactics when the old ones dont work anymore.
Are you mental or something? I'm mostly Read Only because of my borat-level English tho.
Nobody gives a fuck about your debt. The whole world trades in US dollars. Why do you always say that 'we are bad cause of our national debt'. It means nothing. You live in a top-tier country and there won't be any changes.
>Believe in emperor Putin, he is doing his best.
2 letters for you - no. He isn't doing his best. And the last thing I will do is believing in him.
> America has 100s of trillions of debt and
It's actually 18 trillion and you always have to watch national debt vs national GDP. America isn't in bad situation at the moment, but if you keep electing liberals who give stuff for free then yeah your debt will skyrocket in no time. Also fuck the Bernie, he is such a faggot!
So if Russia collapses which meme ideology will it try next?
Putin was the one who ruled 15 years in Russia, you think he have nothing to do with the state Russian economic is at the moment? Gosh you must be one of those slow kids.
I'm so happy to see a a fellow Russian (although my family immigrated to Sweden) acknowledge the current failed state of the Russian Federation (I dont want to call it Russia anymore, it is a name Edinaya R*ssiya deserves)
Instead of rebuilding Russia, the current leaders are waging unnecessary wars against peaceful Christian nations like Ukraine and Georgia, and now we are interfering ourselves with the Shia-Sunni conflict.
why? People are freezing, are unemployed, and are hungry. Our Nationalist opposition is getting arrested, Demushkin and many others.
Change is needed.
>Believe in emperor Putin, he is doing his best.
>2 letters for you - no. He isn't doing his best. And the last thing I will do is believing in him.
Prepare for a muslim invasion, hate crime laws, gay marriage, persecution of the church, transsexual toilets, healthcare for foreigners etc etc.
By the time the US puppet gets done raping your country on buying gender neutral toilet stalls, youl be considering how being dead is better than letting them wipe out your race.
You couldnt care less about the filthy Russian goyim anyways, you probably live in Israel.
Wow damn, i haven't seen such amazing argument.
Great time to invest in property. Screw the haters they said the same shit about Greece, but Greece is only getting shit on because of the EU and Germany. Russia is still a sovereign state with many friends around the world, failure is impossible.
The worse has already past, the ruble hit its low and is steadily rising. Time is all it takes to heal a cut.
Pray to God that doesn't happen. We dont need worlds biggest nuclear weapon holder to collapse. We were luck last time it happened. But this time who knows what will happen.
Better to sacrifice 50 years of economical progress and complete the destruction of the national identiy of pretty much all of Eastern European countries rather than house a couple of thousand muzzies for a few years, none of which would end up staying because of lack of benefits and whom we'll all be forced to accept anyway. Muh countries that resist immigrants is a /pol/ meme.
The soviets tried to destroy national identity by mass relocation, deportation, slaughter.
The west is trying to destroy national identity by importing and mass relocating millions of sandniggers.
You are only resisting the west because you recognize that your identity is trying to be destroyed, the method might be different but the scenario is the same.
The soviets fucked you, but what they did to you in the past might just save you from what is happening right now.
Thats actually Russias main problem is birth rate, and obviously hes done a lot to fix it, that doesnt even include the boost Crimea gave, which is rightfully Russian clay anyways, and who voted to join Russia before they were accepted.
> The worse has already past, the ruble hit its low and is steadily rising.
Here we go Olgino shill.
>they mostly for everything you are against.
So they plan on becoming a poorer version of Germany? Interesting.
Even though I think these people are a tiny minority in Russia. I would expect some sort of ultra-nationalism to come out of a collapse.
Would Russians in Latvia side with rogue Russians?
Yea pretty much this, Russia breaks up and you can bet those 80% who will look back on how much better they had it under Putin.. are going to be extremely, extremely angry at the rest of the people.
You think Yugoslavia was bad? The anti-putin people will be wiped off the face of the earth in any scenario like that.
Two options then. Either import it (lol sanctions, so you apparently don't want that) or grow it yourselves. Farming is already subsidized in Russia (saw a documentary of a German farmer living and working in Russia - he's a millionaire now) and you've got plenty of land.
I can't understand how it takes your government so long to bring the country up to date with all the resources you have.
You are just falling for western propoganda like the Ukrainians did, the west wants to economically rape you, turn your women into feminists and your men into faggots.
Join the army and stop being a pussy.
> Either import it
We already do until we have money.
> grow it yourselves
It's shit as I mentioned. Without dotations it will be even worse.
>I can't understand how it takes your government so long to bring the country up to date with all the resources you have.
And you will not ever understand. You don't live in Russia. It just can't suit in your mind how can bunch of people rob 140 million of their own nation.
>the west wants
To wipe us away. Not that millenial shit you've mentioned.
the NWO intends to destroy every country and rule us all. the worst thing you could do is "build a new country yet again" because it will likely be more in line with what the NWO is attempting to create than what you have now.
these fuckings satanic degenerates are going to try to destroy everything (except themselves) and rule over the entire empty world for the rest of time.
self-sufficiency is the answer. when the collapses come (and there will be many) you need to be able to survive without power, water, or grocery stores. and when the grocery store comes back, you can expect prices to be astronomically high and desperate people fighting over whats actually in stock.
Don't blame your leaders for getting attacked when they go against the NWO, be a self-sufficient human that does not need a government to survive, and therefore does not need the NWO to "save" you from the crisis' it creates.
>Would Russians in Latvia side with rogue Russians?
Yeah ofic, they are brainwashed by Russian media 24/7 they know only their side of the story. Oh and the Documentaries that goes on Ren-TV gosh its like the epicentr of all conspiracy theory.
But then again not all of them. Educated part of them which is like 10% is very patriotic and they know language.
>wow look at that curve!
Why do graphfags think it's a valid substitution for an arguement?
Gazprom just formed a contract with China to do most of their natural gas drilling. The ruble is going back down and you're going to regret not investing. Or you can move to Los Angeles and kiss your savings goodbye. ;^)
Hang in there guy. Worst comes to the worst you sell Siberia to China for 10 tn dollars.
I don't even think your leaders have done much wrong since 2000. The US is still seeking the killer blow and as such fucking with you at every turn. They don't even hate you for the most part. They're just paranoid to the point of insanity.
>natural sources are useless
Wait, what ?
And Denmark, Arabs country ?
>the west wants
>to wipe us away
Exactly, don't you get how they would do it?
>Russia isn't any better
they church is gaining strength
Cracking down on defeneracy
Trying to raise the birth rate
>not any better
Jesus are you blind? Russia was an utter corrupt shithole with trash people, you can't just fix it with a snap of your fingers
> Gazprom just
Got a highest deficit.
>you can move to Los Angeles and kiss your savings goodbye
I wish I could.
Our 'industry' (it's weird to apply this word for Russia) relies on Siberia. We sell Siberia - we sell everything.
> Exactly, don't you get how they would do it?
They can't just breed us with muslims. Russian people are not that soft. It's generally easier just to kill us all. One way or another.
>You don't live in Russia. It just can't suit in your mind how can bunch of people rob 140 million of their own nation.
I've got lots of friends and relatives in Russia and my father is still about as Russian as it gets. Blindly and naively pro-Putin, hates America..yaddayadda. I've been discussing world and especially Russian politics with him for the past 4 years, it's 90% of the stuff we talk about, sadly. I think I can say that I've got the gist of the Russian mentality and "system". I doubt it's only the oligarchs' fault the state is in the connection it's in.
I'd like to think that around 16% of the 24% bydlo population has integrated by now and consider Latvia their homeland. Remember how the Byblos tried to pull a Donbas in Latgale and they got btfoed by the latvian-Russians living there.
The Russian people need a few hundred years of autocratic/nationalist eugenic rule. Just hang in their buddy, at least your people have a future.
Meanwhile the west is going to flame out and be a Third World War zone in less than 50 years.
Adding to that:
I believe Putin is the leader Russia needs. I really think he is doing his best to bring Russia onto a good path while not whoring it out to foreign states.
Stay strong, bratu4a.
It's not honor, it's dedication and long-term thinking. How long would your country last in Russian economic conditions? (answer: not a month) The smart Russians are already wringing their hands in investments, which is what they should be doing. There is a reason why some of the richest people come from Russian albiet a poor background, this country pays off.
This can be dragged out and the people can handle it, but in the end of the day, like with most free markets, it will solve itself and the ones who invested the most will enjoys their just desserts.
Get back to farming you rural dumbfuck.
I have an acquaintance who tried to live there and has a wife still living there. So I do have that to add to my pol memes, plus my understanding of HBD.
Slavs are not Western Europeans, they are low trust, more inbred(all that serf inbreeding) and tribal. They simply won't make as good a civilizAtion as Western Europeans. Like I said they need an autocrat that can put some eugenic policies in place. It's not an easy fix.
This Russian is acting like a rotten child who is mad he isn't getting cookies like the kids next door.
> I doubt it's only the oligarchs' fault the state is in the connection it's in.
You shouldn't doubt. It's a big question that needs a big discussion. Russian system is shit. Only 15 million of people there literally 'works' producing goods with value-added tax. Other just either dotationed (governmental workers, disabled, police, army) or unemployed. They just send shitton of rubles from one place to another inside of Russian borders. Rubles need to be invested in world economics if we want to live good. We don't do this so we are fucked.
Romania, Moldova and Hungary aren't slav. Yet we're doing just as good/bad as slavs. Your point fails. You don't know what we had to recover from and how politics work here and in russia just because you tried living there.
>Russian citizens, supposed to suffer everytime because of stupid fucktards ruling this land?
Anyone could've deduced that Russia is a nihilistic shithole full of morons run by a few slavemasters by taking a look at Moscow.
In any period in history where people had two braincells, they would've rose up and overthrew their oppressors.
It's hardly Russia's fault though; the west in general is poisoned by some stupid belief that "market value" precedes general public decency. At least the Nazi's were right with "the common interest before self-interest."
That mindset will only get worse and create further destabilization with the inevitable increase in technological efficiency and the corresponding decreasing need for human labor, mental or physical.
>inb4 b-bu-buh tech creates jobs, bu-but we'll all be robot-fixers, all billions of us.
Whatever. You'll be sucking cock for rent or showing your asshole to rich faggots on a webcam portal next to your sister who is dildoing her cunt for Ahmed.
Nobody forced Russia to fuck with Crimea.
Also nobody forced Russia to put counter sanctions and reduce imported food.
Russian retards deserve to die in hunger after not importing our cheese.
Oh you should see how the Russian tourists here hoard cheese in supermarkets btw. Literally 5kg+ every time. Also coffee, at least 10 packages of coffee for every Russian. Too bad it is Löfberg's Swedish Coffee though.
wrong. its tech nerds who invented whole GMO technology and tech nerds are not marketing people unlike jews and therefore failed badly at making this pretty much super innovation look as good as it actually is. food is safer than ever and producing it is more effortless than ever. jew dont like when things get too effective and less workforce is needed for doing something.
check the video
inb4 whining about joe rogan. im not telling you to listen to joe rogan im telling you to listen to that other guy who actually knows this shit and isnt jew.
Countries outside of the hajnal lines have the same problems anon..
You've been under jewish rule since the revolution. For a while they used you as our antagonist, until they realized Muslims were better at that job. They don't need you anymore.
The post before you said slavs don't make great civilizations are westerns. Now you're saying people outside of your drawn lines don't make great civilizations? I guess explaining that stuff to you was pointless.
And there is another Russian saying - Fish rot from the head...
I was talking about Slavs compared to west Europeans. Slavs are outside of the hajnal lines. You changed the subject from Slavs so I clarified. I don't see why you are so butt hurt.
If you keep repeating yourself, maybe you'll one day believe it. :^)
High IQ correlates with other positive civilizational factors as well.
Russia needs some eugenic policies, they are moving in that direction while the west is encouraging disgenic policies.
False flag terror attack, saudi passports found in the rubble, couple nukes dropped on Saudi Arabia and the oil price goes up again, just saying.
Putin has stayed on the defensive long enough.
How am I wrong, who claims that Romania and Hungary are west European?
Western Europe is unique becuase of some eugenic policies going back more than 1300 years.
>laws against consanguineous marriage instance
Oil and property. Two things that are destined to rise. Another anon here joked that the world runs on oil, he's 100% right, the world economy is enjoying a temporary drop in prices, what we are experiencing is a taste of Russian oil. The prices will hike up again, I guarantee it.
Property because it will never depreciate, especially if you're within 100 km of Moscow/st. Petersberg. Much easier to in invest here, where in America/Europe you can have niggers/muslims kill your property value thru diversity quotas and subsidized housing. Very good when you know your neighborhood investment won't turn to shit by greedy government hands and foreigners.
I would be okay with USSR 2.0 if it would be really 2.0, eg not overwhelming corrupted, overcentralized, aggressively oppressive. But considering our politicians and world we are living - nah.
I said we are not slavs, not that we are western. Nice try at shifting subject though. Also Spain, part of Italy, Greece, part of Austria are outside of your lines. Are these slav too? How stupid are you?
I never said they were Slavs, Jesus Christ.. I said Slavs were low trust because of such and such.
You said that Romania and hungAry aren't Slavs but have same problems and I pointed out how they are outside of the hajnal lines.
Perhaps you have an issue with reading comprehension?
I don't understand. What are the blue lines for?
Are you implying Finland isn't as functional civilization as Western Europeans?
We've probably got the most functional welfare state of the whole world.
(Until we reach Greece tier debt :))) thanks to globalization and capitalism raping our industry)
You poor bastards. It kills me that the west is choking so badly on it's own decadence that the youth are morally bankrupt fuckwits that get triggered by everything and will ruin their own countries, meanwhile slavs get fucked by poverty and geopolitics despite being the last ones with any sense or decency. From talking to ruskies here and a bunch of online friends I seriously wish we could import a fuckton of you guys here to balance out all the sjws and muslims.
Yes, lots of things to be proud of. Like 2/3 of women getting beaten by a male family member, 38 fucking thousand suicides a year, the fastest growing HIV/AIDS epidemic in the world, the fastest growing drug addicted population in the world, just about every male being an alcoholic, over 30 % of deaths being directly linked with alcohol, economy in free fall, military outdated, a great frozen waste, population on steady decline, run by the mob, IQ average dropping, the list goes on.
Every Russian male I have ever known is a lazy, alcoholic savage. Women are bretty good, though.
>tfw the necessaries reforms are impossible to implement democratically because of various special interest groups
>the revolutionary path is destructive and corrupt
But in Russia Putin seems to enjoy the support and power necessary to implement radical reforms. So why doesn't he?
But literally all of rural Europe apart from the South looks like his pic in late November. Netherlands is a very Northern country and a major farming produce exporter. Austria manages to produce fucking grapes even right outside of Vienna where the countryside looks exactly like that. Our economy isn't doing all that great either but we stay afloat while Russia has a huge land with a diverse climate, how fucking entitled can you be?
Russians are just stupid in general. 85% of population still supports Putin. I don't know what has to happen in order them to wake up.
Well he is if you ask SJW
>banning homosexual propaganda aimed at children.
But yes Russia needs radical reforms on part with Peter the Great.. They need massive autocratic reforms.
Maybe the issue is that Putin's position isn't strong enough to replicate Peter the great?
turly hope you arent buying in to these media's memes
finland has less debt than almost any other county in europe. not quite but definately on very bearable levels anyways. finland will never turn to greece.
This stupid cuck is probably too young to remember even 1997.
We have a saying here, "a non-spanked generation's laying across the bench, eager for its cane". The time has come for the millenial hipsters to feel their cane. Maybe it'll mold men out of them.
You're an idiot for not securing yourself against lower oil prices Russia. Learn from Norway next time.
What is your opinions about this theory, Russians?
I actually only put it in as pre-emptive debt apologist point because I expected murica to bring it up anyway. I work on a public sector myself and am sick and tired of this debt shaming.
>Russians need a strong autocrat to fix their shit.
Exactly. This is the reason why China is/was so prosperous (that, plus their leaders being actual scientists, engineers and intellectuals instead of bureaucrats, lawyers and kgb agents.
ayy lmao, when's the new OКeям Heт video dropping or has their budget shrunk too
Russia has a lot of land, they could diversify their export portfolio, in fact they should have done this ages ago and not rely solely on oil exports.
They have vast land in which to develop, they have oil that they can use for themselves to manufacture, they could invest what they have into medicines, science and research but they don't.
Like Scotland they become complacent on oil.
Oh and this saturation of the oil markets just goes to show that peak oil is a fucking myth that should be placed into le trash can.
My country runs a state capitalist system as well, OP. It's one of the most retarded things ever.
>old socialist bureaucracy
>government stake in everything
>preference given to oligarchs
>depend on food exports (to Russia lol)
Sometimes I don't know how we are still alive.

B oбщeм - yдaчи, чё.
They've lost their way that's all.
Poor management and funnelling off of resources with no real investment into future development except the arms industry and oil.
Both of which aren't really needed at the moment.
Combine that with the sanctions placed against the Russian private sector and it becomes even more toxic.
China has a terrible model. Maybe 15% of its population have living standards comparable to the West's but they are also crammed into severely polluted areas. Rural China is India tier.
I don't think peak oil means what you think it means.
>Russians need a strong autocrat to fix their shit.
Yeah, Putin totally fixed Russias shit during his 15 year reign.
Putin wanted a trade zone from Lissabon to Vladivostok. He loved the west, especially Germany, but we always gave him the cold shoulder.
I wish there was an English version of the video I linked - I'll try to find one.
im not sick and tired but it is true that we have debt - just like everyone else - even less than others.
but it does indeed tell something about how retarded our prime-fucking-minister is that all he can do is keep meme'ing about that we would be in some sort of amazing crisis here
crisis was real in his mind
[spoiler]good thing that markets are atleast allowed to be open now in this borderline socialist state thanks to our meme run government. biggest change i've seen happen in years in this country as result of political decision making[/spoiler]
Nah I know exactly what it means sweet cakes.
Yes. It's much better than it was before. and it's also much harder to unfuck a cancer-ridden country of that size. It's nothing compared to memecountries like euro micro states, like France. Or Latvia.
I'm half russian. I think, I know more about Russia, than you do.
Actually the sanctions are fucking over the Russian private sector. As has been said before, Russian private sector cannot access debt markets to shift debt bonds, the Russian state have had to bail them out. Meaning Russian tax payers have had to bail out the rich bastards.
But yes, oil price is the main thing. It's what happens when you peg the value of your currency to oil which is incredibly unstable.
Rev up those machines Russia and start making things, mayonnaise doesn't count.
> comparing France to Latvia
France's population is 32 (!) times as big as Latvia's.
Tiny European states have their own problems that I'm not sure as solvable. They have a very old population that doesn't reproduce and that young educated people are moving westwards from and they likely won't survive as cultures into the next century.
Norway haven't taken in any migrants, immigrants or refugees since November m8. And it's not because of winter, but because of new laws. And we're going to throw out roughly 50% of everyone that came last year. We're also hedged against low oil prices with qt girls and pancakes. erryday
>young educated people are moving westwards
We also haven't taken in Mama Merkel's quotas and we just use London as a giant money laundering service.
We have more oil under Heathrow than the entire North Sea oil field but we don't use it.
Why use it when you can give useless paper for others oil and resources.
You are of smart Norgay, you shall give me those pancakes now.
Thank you for pancake.
I get your point. What about the foreign policy part? Don't you think that it is true that during Yeltsin's time the foreign policy was less hostile. From my point of view I can say that at least here it felt that way, Russia was friendlier. Now there is all this talk about dissolution of USSR being a mistake and returning ancient Russian clay and "protecting" ethnic Russians abroad etc. You know what I am talking about.
Then happened Georgia.. Ukraine..
At some point there were serious preparations underway for visa-free travel between Finland and Russia, but after Ukraine all preparations were frozen and never spoken of since.
>let the tell you about your country
He does have a power. Just check his KGB buddies net worth before Putin became president and after. Their country literally is run by mafia and people are brainwashed by state owned media.
Just keep hittin' the sauce bud and hang in there.
It's to expensive to get any $$ from Heathrow. And Norway has so much oil that we know we'll never be able to pump it all up. Kinda sad.
I heard birmingham and shit is pretty cool
They get tanned from visiting their mountain cabins where they ski. You need sunglasses to survive that.
That case was blown out of proportion. The kids got beaten real bad by their parents. Not a slap in the face, but really beaten. It gives me chills.
I read that Germany was beginning to send their refugees to you Austria. How is it going?
How exactly is this directly related to foreign policy though?
I mean weren't oligarchs mostly Russian? So the state assets were lost to Russians. Maybe some other ex-ussr states too, but it is debatable whether assets on ex-ussr states would belong to Russian federation anyway.
How exactly did foreign powers rape Russia? More like they raped themselves.
I don't know, how it's in Russia. I'm speaking from my experience in Latvia. All my friends, who are living, working either in UK or Germany, have high school education.
You're just assuming things that suits your skewed perception of reality without having anything to back your claims.
>Ethnic groups (2012)
That's more Turks then we have immigrants from non-western nations.
This was in 2012 and it's even worse now. Stay kek'd Austria.
> You're just assuming things that suits your skewed perception of reality without having anything to back your claims
Right back at you.
Ethnic Norwegians are 87%. Your country has 5 million people, mine has 8.5. It will be twice as fast and as easy to shit up yours.
We're not taking in immigrants or refugees anymore and Norway is composed of 87% ethnic Norwegians not counting Sami (indigenous)
Forest Finns and Kvens. And our biggest group of immigrants come from Sweden (ethnic swedes), Poland and Lithuania. Roughly 3% of our total popualtion comes from Africa, Asia and the Middle East. Stay kek'd Austria.
