We live in a matrix imposed on us by the West. In it we are assigned a very narrow line, stepping out of which is only possible with the permission of Washington or Brussels. In this world we are forced to be gray, miserable, with no outstanding achievements. Any attempt to demonstrate some progress is either blocked or smeared in mud.
The most striking example — the story with a monument to Ivan the Terrible. Meanwhile we are imposed very dubious heroes who are not so much Russian, but Western, and here is a classic example — Mannerheim. And it would be fine if they were only imposed by the West, but we ourselves are acting in the same fashion. The fact is those real breakthroughs that happen with us, are almost not reflected by the media.
At the recent BRICS summit there was a real major breakthrough of Russia: Rosneft bought the Indian oil company Essar Oil Limited, and signed a number of agreements on entering the Indian market. Neither the Russian nor the Western media reported it. I think it is not an accident.
Our task today — informing about the real place of Russia in the world. For example, we need to talk openly about the fact that all the anti-Russian sanctions are related not to Crimea and Donbass, but only to the fact that Russia dared to announce that she has interests beyond its borders. In this regard, Rosneft’s entrance to the Indian oil market, strange as it sounds, is the event no less important than the annexation of Crimea.
In the framework of economic development and disintegration of the world into currency zones — the more markets Russia can enter, the more opportunities she has. This is why Rosneft’s move is a massive and systemic global breakthrough for the whole country.
