Putin is tough this time!
February 5, Borelli, the highest diplomat of the European Union, visited Moscow rarely. Calculated, this is the first time that the highest diplomat in the European Union has visited Russia in four years.
Smile away the enmity?
There is more than half a sentence without speculation.
Anyway, a few hours later, Russia issued a statement expelling three diplomats from Germany, Poland and Sweden.
You people are not welcome and must leave Russia in a short time.
In the diplomatic field, there are protests, strong protests, strongest protests, and most protests, but expulsion of diplomats is undoubtedly practical action. This is openly hitting the EU and the West in the face, considering that Borelli is visiting Russia.
This is also in line with Putin’s personality.
Russia is angry and thinks these diplomats are too unland.
A few days ago, Russia tried Navalny, a well-known opposition figure.
According to media analysis, the vehicles of the embassies of the United States, the United Kingdom, Sweden, Germany, Norway, Poland, Canada, Japan and other countries in Russia were assembled outside the Moscow court building.
Navalny is Russian.
Such battles in the West are very rare and unusual.
Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Zakharova scolded that Western diplomats were putting pressure on Russian judges in disguise.
But even if the West believes that Navalny is “their person”, Russia can judge as it can.
Finally, the verdict came out, and Navalny would be imprisoned for three and a half years.
The West naturally strongly protested, so Russia stopped and calmed down?
Russia is still breathing.
You know, on January 23, large-scale protests broke out in many parts of Russia, demanding the release of Navalny.
Considering Russia’s national conditions and this year’s epidemic, such large-scale protests are also very rare and unusual.
Russia believes that Western diplomats play a disgraceful role behind the large-scale protests.
The United States and Russia summoned diplomats to each other and protested strongly.
There is room for the United States, but for other countries, Russia has begun to settle accounts.
Three diplomats: Polish and Swedish diplomats in St. Petersburg, German diplomats in Moscow, you participated in the “illegal” rally on January 23 and deported!
Putin took a close and Russia closed the door to see off guests.
What will happen next?
There is no doubt that an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.
The three countries of DePoly and Switzerland immediately strongly protested against Russia’s measures.
Germany and Poland also summoned the Russian ambassador at the first time to warn Russia that they would certainly retaliate.
How to revenge?
Diplomacy pays attention to equivalence.
Since you expel our diplomats, you Russian diplomats should also go home.
This is only limited to Russia and these three countries?
Definitely not. After all, Western countries pay attention to the same spirit, and the overall position on dealing with Russia is the same.
While there were no French diplomats among the deportees, French President Macron also stepped forward and strongly condemned “what happened from beginning to end, from his poisoning…
to today, Russia’s decision to expel German, Polish and Swedish diplomats…”
The United States will not be idle.
The new U.S. Secretary of State Blinken immediately condemned Russia’s actions, saying that the United States firmly sided with De Bory.
After expelling diplomats, it is a new big stick sanction.
Politically, Russia cannot be allowed to yield, nor can it change Russia militarily, so the West has only one classic move – economic sanctions, more severe sanctions.
At the beginning of the New Year, Russia has a fight with the West.
In Borelli’s words, Russia’s relations with the West have now fallen to a new low.
Finally, what do you think?
The old rule, three points shallow.
First, Putin chose to be tough and have personality factors, but it is more forced by the situation.
Putin should be very clear. Navalny is a pawn, through which the West is encircling and suppressing Russia.
The EU is not afraid, and the most important thing is the United States.
Don’t forget that Biden can always regard Russia as the main enemy.
What should I do? Attack is the best defense.
Therefore, tough is tough, and action is also the rule for Biden.
Second, it is inevitable. Next, it is an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.
Anyway, this is also the old routine.
Russia expels German, Polish and Swedish diplomats, and Germany, Poland and Sweden also expel Russian diplomats.
Looking at it, in the past year, Russia and many EU countries such as the Netherlands, Norway, the Czech Republic, Bulgaria and so on have expelled diplomats from each other.
You are cruel, I am more ruthless.
Those diplomats, you should prepare your luggage early and return home at any time.
Third, the most unlucky thing is definitely the pawn sandwiched in the middle.
Navalny faces new troubles.
The Russian court will hold another session on February 12 to hear his case of insulting World War II veterans.
He was accused of insulting 95-year-old World War II veterans as a “disgrace to the country” and “traitor”.
It is likely that he will be sentenced to two more years in prison.
There are also small countries.
Russia will restrain the United States and Germany, but it will not be polite to offend small countries.
The more intense the squeeze, the more fierce the resistance.
Russia is breathing in its heart.
On January 4, the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs specially forwarded a famous painting Napoleon’s withdrawal from Moscow.
In the oil painting, Napoleon, riding on horse, was dejected, behind him was a frustrated French army, on the snow, and frozen soldiers killed in the war…
At the beginning of 2021, Russia’s relations with the West will drop to freezing point.
Moscow didn’t believe in tears, and Russia began to be tough.
It’s time to test Putin.
