Preparations keep on going...

The West isn`t going to let it go, the Iran/Russia/China alliance needs to be broken up in order to isolate China, and Russia needs to come down for that. The other alliance which still needs to be broken up is Hezbollah/Syria/Iran.

Ukraine/Russia

- H. Res. 758 gave the clearing to do whatever is needed regarding the Ukraine

- The Rouble took a new hit 1 USD = 57.4696 RUB

- Despite being on the brink of default, the Ukraine keeps building up its army

Ukrainian PM warns of possible default, calls for more Western help

The European Union Demands that Russia Bail Out both the EU and Ukraine

Ukraine's arms manufacturer sends almost 97% of weaponry to eastern Ukraine

Ukraine’s 2015 military budget to double — defense minister

Ukraine to receive status of US ally in few months — vice-speaker

Syria/Russia/Iran

After what has happened with the Libyan no-fly-zone Russia isn`t going to let that happen again.

Russia warns against 'no-fly' zone over Syria

Turkey, US continue to discuss no-fly-zone Syria

Kerry demands open-ended Mideast war resolution

It might still take a few years before everything comes into full swing, but The West sure is going to go through with it.

According to another thread at ATS India is doing their part to help: www.abovetopsecret.com... with 100 billion trade deal.. So it looks like India, China, and who knows who else are chugging along .. Russia's Ruble is something like 57 rubles to 1 USD which has got to hurt !

Greed and stupidity by the leaders of this world will lead to mankind's demise .... Most people just want to be left alone not fight wars IMO..

Its only logical to prepare for more Russian aggression. As Russia is fond of stating its not their concern about military maneuvers inside the sovereign boundaries of another nation. This is a prime example of Russia going mental. They demand to know whats going on while refusing to explain their own.

Putin needs a mental health check as Merkel is right- He has lost touch and has nothing left but to be a bully.

The EU has not demanded Russia bail them out.

Washington’s Master Plan: World Conquest. “Madness Defines US Policy”

Russian economy is hurting badly. Time is not to point fingers at US and its desires for world conquest but to look internally to improve the both short and long term economic situations.

By 2008, Russian financial situation as a result of high energy prices had stabilized. It was a good time to focus on diversification and creating new sectors of growth. Kremlin and its corrupt honchos did not do much about it.

Now energy prices are down and Russia is hurting. This lack of foresight is in many a sense similar one shown by Stalin in early 30s when he purged the officer cadre of the Red Army only to be found pants down when Nazis invaded.

Economic World War is going on against Russia. Too bad its "what so called" allies are not openly showing support.
India does $17B of trade with Singapore and only $10B with Russia. Time for countries like India and China to reduce trade ties with other nations and award contracts and orders to Russian industries and service sectors. Even if that means a small loss. Over the years, Russia has given aid and debt forgiveness to other nations in very generous manner. Cuba got $32B written off this earlier this year. Now those who call themselves the friends of Russia should pitch in and show their true colors of real friendship.

It`s not that easy when a lot of different markets are already being covered to wrestle yourself in those saturated markets. That is not something which is done in just a couple of years, maybe domestically by closing your markets just as the EU has done in the past, but it doesn`t go that quick.

Russia is doing it with the strengths it has, military equipment, big projects, trucks, nuclear power plants, etc.

Russians are still better off biting the bullet now, than to subdue to the West its demands and let their country be plundered by having another clown installed...they don`t have much choice, same as with Iraqis, Libyans, Ukrainians, Syrians, etc.

military equiptment: Russia is losing market share, even in India, Vietnam etc.

big projects: Chinese is the word. More so when they cut on quality to get lower prices.

trucks: German, Japs, Korean have better image for efficiency mpg etc.

nuclear power plants: Russia gets some business because it takes higher insurance liability.

Russia can sell lots of metals to India like copper, aluminum, iron. These alone can account for $2B of annual exports. Mining these metals will provide employment to lots although in Siberia regions.

Russia can try to ship lots of crude oil to India via ships for the time being and may be pipeline down the road. India imports $180B of oil each single year. India also imports $67B of precious metals annually, gems and Russia has a lots of these in good quantities. Oil can already be supplied to China via pipelines and this network needs to be upgraded.

Russia can offer lots of weapons upgrade business to third world where there already is Russian equipment. Upgrading Mig-21s to Mig-21 BIS for $5M a piece is a good example. These alone add 15 years to life and effectiveness. Same for tanks and other items. Argentina is a good candidate for air forces upgrade given they still have tensions with UK and no western power would sell them Rafeals or EU fighters. Su-35s come real handy in that scenario.

The gas pipelines, building a railway and alumina refinery in Indonesia, and nuclear reactors are all big projects. And also they should invest in Iran pipelines now.

Kamaz trucks are still being bought, just as Sukhoi jets, helicopters, air defence systems, fighter jets, tanks, etc. And what about building helicopter ships. There`s also investment going on in being able to drill for oil themselves, all what needs to be done is copy the Western equipment.

It`s not that bad in all.

I see Putin is not the only person in denial about the Russian economy.

Things are not well in Russia and are continuing to get worse courtesy of Putins ego and 1980's mentality.

Look at the financial info coming out of Russia. Russian sources are stating its bad.

What is the purpose of this thread? You keep repeating exactly these same talking points on every other thread you participate in. Give yourself a day off. Get some fresh air. Clear your head.

My head is perfectly clear...

...it might surprise you, but there are also people who actual want to know what is really happening instead of the same narrative which is presented to them by the MSM.

I don`t deny anything, but the other side of the equation is a future of decades of `90s style economic conditions if The Kremlin bows down again to The West, so it`s better to weather it out now for the upcoming years and make the best of it...

...it still would all have happened, because a prosperous Russia is a threat to the US World hegemony and by so Russia will never be allowed to become it.

As usual i am not surprised that your the only one who sees Russian economy as bad while you ignore the other news. You seem to be desperate to spread your anti Russian agenda.

If the Russian economy was doing so badly they would have taken a hit a few months more even after the Ukrankian crisis.
