Putin’s failure to attract CIS leaders to Victory parade marks shift from post-Soviet era to Russian world, Dubnov says

International, More

Only one leader of another former Soviet republic, Moldova’s Igor Dodon, joined Vladimir Putin for Moscow’s Victory Day parade, a development that “may not have been planned but that certainly should have been foreseen,” marking as it does the end of the post-Soviet era and its replacement by “’the Russian world,’” Vadim Dubnov says.

“Slowly and as the mathematicians say asymptotically … the post-Soviet era with its elite solidarity and devotion to Moscow is running out,” the Moscow commentator says in today’s Novaya gazeta. Moldova’s Dodon it would appear is “the last of those who suppose the past is important” for their future.

“Victory Day,” he says, “gave us in the person of Igor Dodon a symbol of the natural drying up of the past,” of the end of “the conception of the post-Soviet world” and its replacement by “’the Russian world,’” a concept that is not simply empty words but “a triumph of the Kremlin’s post-modernism.”

Under the terms of “the old post-Soviet model … Moscow’s role was passive” because everyone was still linked to the past. But, Dubin argues, “the doctrine of ‘the Russian world’ is on the contrary active and aggressive … it penetrates everything like radiation” and doesn’t rely on the past but on Moscow’s action and mobilization of large groups of people abroad.

“The new Russia,” he says, “can count on thousands of citizens,” people who may think they are “the third wave of emigration” but in fact are “sleeping agents” who can be mobilized by the Russian government and put in motion by it against those who offend Moscow or get in its way.

Moscow isn’t interested in victories: it is concerned about having a presence that it can use to take advantage of situations in many countries as they develop. And it gains a victory because those it targets, like the Democratic Party in the United States, see it as “a threat of planetary size.”

And that means this, Dubnov concludes. There has been a new definition of what is good and what is bad. “In general, you no longer will come to us for the parade: that means that we will come to you” not with tanks necessarily but with bikers and hackers who send a signal that Russia is still around and must still be reckoned with.

    Not even Viktor Orban or anyone from Greece would show up?

    What’s Putin’s world coming to when even his fellow fascists won’t come out to celebrate? So sad that Marine Le Pen wouldn’t even show up after Putin blew 9 million euros trying to buy her the French presidency!!!

    KARMA….

      Orban is a curious case: he was a staunch critic at the time if the pootlerstan invasion of Georgia, but became a full-on pootler buttlicker when they invaded Ukraine. Does the chekist dwarf have some ‘golden showers’-type kompromat on him?

            This article will remain on the internet for ever, and many will view it over time. Any who look at the comments will see that we the supporters of Ukraine provide facts and reasoning in our posts, while the Putin trolls provide nothing but abuse. That will convince them that the Russian side has nothing to say.

            Good counter argument. Kremtrolls serve as a very accurate reflection of the wormy minds of the degenerates, throwbacks and murderers they troll for. Bloomberg is a site repeatedly targeted by trolls like styx; all articles concerning the kremlin murder gang are peppered with the same cretinous talking points that have been copied and pasted since pootlerstan started murdering its neighbours and stealing their land.

            Recent events in USA are a case in point – whatever one’s view is on Trump, the Russians quickly found that they could get nowhere because virtually every US lawmaker is against them. Why? Because public opinion in the USA (as in all Western countries) mostly despises Russia.

            And a major reason why it is so despised is because people read the trolling comments of people like Styx etc on Bloomberg and EP, and they draw their own conclusions….

            Washing dishes will be a dream job for Styx and all other Savushkina trolls, but unattainable. No serious employer would even consider hiring someone who puts “I was a Savushkina troll” on his resumé. They aren’t bright sparks to begin with and to get the troll job required a lobotomy and castration, further reducing the already limited intelligence. Quaffing the dwarf’s rotgut samogon (pay for trolls at 2 litres per 12-hour troll shift) slowly dissolves what few brain cells were left, a process accelerated by Krokodil addiction.

            And Ukraine’s economy is growing while Russia’s is shrinking.

            Ukraine gets stronger militarily while Russia grows weaker.

            You are only right about one thing – the US and indeed the whole west has deep pockets, whereas Russia is poor.

          Please don’t insult the maggots. They have SOME intelligence and are useful, whereas Savushkina trolls have no intelligence whatsoever and are utterly useless in a normal society.

        Ha ha, are you serious? Where has Zorba indicated hate for anything kind?

        He was taking about putin and his “Russian world” – not only are they not “kind”, they are the very definition of hatred.

          Ho, ho, you and and your salo guzzling, gorilka driven mama frau dorfmenko are indeed “the very definition of hatred”.

          And always will be.

            It is known that you killed your mommy, commie.

          3. Avatar Alex George says:

            How is that “known”? You just cannot face the truth taht your dear fuehrer Putin is losing the foolish war that he started with Ukraine.

          4. Avatar Alex George says:

            How do? Ukrainians do not spread hate. Neither do supporters of Ukraine.

            But Russia under bumbling Kremlin leadership is the very essence of hatred. That is why nobody respects Russian anymore. It has no allies, no friends.

            I am very satisfied, because you have just proved you dare not contradict my point: Ukrainians do not spread hate. Neither do supporters of Ukraine.

            Now you really are getting desperate. You know perfectly well taht Ukraine has many friends and allies – throughout Europe, Central Asia, China, Middle East, everywhere in fact.

            by contrast, who has Russia got? North Korea, Venezuela, Zimbabwe… Yes, other pariah states.

            And one of the main reasons for that is that Ukrainians do not spread hate, whereas Putin and his supporters do. Hence, nobody respects Russia anymore.

            Now poor little Alex George really is desperate. Alex George knows perfectly well “taht” Ukraine has no friends or allies. Yes it is a pariah state.

            And one of the main reasons for that is that Kiev regime spreads hate, whereas hogsident Porosyonko and his supporters do. Hence, nobody respects Ukraine anymore. Simple ..

            Dwarfstan DOES have “friends”, but they are not friends normal countries would be proud of: North Korea, Cuba, Zimbabwe, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Bolivia. What they have in common is that all are run by crackpots: Kim Jong-un, Raúl, Mugabe, Maduro, Ortega, Morales. Perfect company for the demented pedophile Kremlin dwarf- “birds of a feather flock together”.
            As for allies, even its supposedly closest allies, Kazakhstan and Belarus, no longer trust Dwarfstan.

            Ha ha, fair point.

            Let’s just say it is respected far less under Putin’s incompetent leadership.

            But it’s true – your precious Stalin was a fascist.

            He allied with Hitler to promote fascism and attack other countries.

            But it’s true – your precious hogsident is a fascist.

            He allied with NATO in order to promote fascism towards Russia in Europe and attack other sovereign countries.

          3. Avatar Alex George says:

            He didn’t need to promote fascism in Russia – its already strong there.

            And the point you are avoiding (because you have no answer) is that your precious Stalin was a fascist, who allied with Hitler to promote fascism and attack other countries.

            It is indeed funny what a “you senile old fool” you are.

          3. Avatar Alex George says:

            Sure, if you like. But what I was referring to is the point you are running away from: That Turkey under Erdogan has publicly stated that Crimea belongs to Ukraine and must be returned to it.

            Looks like your dear fuehrer Putin can’t win a single point, and doesn’t have any real friends.
