    I hope you like this video! I know its a bit more serious than some others ones but hopefully its still an enjoyable watch.
    Also, people have been asking for them, so I’ve put a link in the description to a copy of the script with sources in footnotes. I’ll be doing that for every video from now on.
    Please also go and check out backblaze! Sponsors make this channel happen (seriously) and Backblaze is a legitimately good product that I’ve used for a while so at the very least go and try them out with their 15 day free trial. It helps both me and you out.

      You really need to study Russian economy better same goes for most youtubers because if the Russian economy is so bad then PLEASE EXPLAIN ME THIS how did Russia pay off all of its debts something that countries that you claim to be far richer then Russia such as Canada and the US cant even pay off their debt but Russia did as of 2019 Russia doesn't have debt and is the only major economy that is not slowing down in economic growth that means its completely unaffected by the sanctions nor by the trade wars and now the allies of the US are losing faith in their strategy even Germany is looking for an economic alliance with Russia because it realized how strong the Russian economy really is
      -
      Despite making less the Russians still have enough for food a home and a car what more would you need? I really fail to see it as economically weak
      Almost no Russian ever has debt to pay they dont need loans they are trully free unlike us seriously i fail to see how we Canadians could possibly be doing better then Russia clearly the stories about Russia being economically weak are full of lies
      -
      Also Russia is has the strongest Navy in the Arctic sea which thanks to Russian nuclear ice breakers is now navigable and a shorter route for a lot of connerce its really been booster Russia's economy

    The 882 state had nothing to do with Russia, it was called Kievan Rus'. Neither Russian language nor culture were present at that time. The name Russia came to existence in 14 century. Until then it was a state called the Grand Duchy of Moscow, which originated in 1283, just a little after the Kievan Rus' was conquered by the Mongols. Check your facts. Calling eastern part of Europe "Russia" is like calling all the north western Europe "Germany".

    The point of the "invasion" of Crimea was that the local authorities had declared secession for Ukraine and asked to return to Russia (it was part of Russia until the 1950s, and the change at that time was of little significance as Ukraine was also part of USSR. The reason for the local authorities to want a return to Russia was that simply that the coup d'etat in Kiev by pro-NATO forces backed by Fascist groups was announcing a crackdown on russian-speaking ukrainians (one of the first measures announced, even if not carried later, was to suppress the mention of the Russian language as an official language in Ukraine)

    Natural resources are one of the key things that dictatorships need. Be it food, metal, oil and whatnot, you can harvest and sell those with poorly educated public. It means they can pretty much use anyone for the jobs and don't need to care as much. It's source of money to keep power that is not dependent on people.

    Almost 30 years of corruption in every structure, is the reason for GDP being that low. Russia is ruled by a dictator who has his own gang. For all intents and purposes he is a modern gangster. Nothing different from all other post-soviet countries. Billions on billions of dollars are stolen every year from budget. This is the sole reason people live in poverty. Ask anyone who lives there. Outside of propaganda believers/spreaders. There is a reason Russia spends the biggest dollar on propaganda than any other country.

  • MrMentat57

    This is wrong on so many levels - for instance, there is no need to invade Crimea to gain access to another warm-water port as it suffers from the same drawback as Novorossisk: The access to the oceans is via the Bosporus (and strait of Gibraltar)
    Moreover, the video fails to mention Murmansk, a major port which is ice-free all year.
    No, the weak economy of Russia is fundamentally due to one reason: The disaster of communism. The Russian geographic problem is spelled China. They have, since the conversion to capitalism, the resources and the manpower to expand into Siberia. Their willingness to do so is demonstrated by their non-acceptance of the Treaty of Peking from 1860. What holds them back is probably the fact that Russia is a major nuclear arms power, which has nothing to do with geography...

  • van0tot100
    van0tot100 5 days ago +2

    I disagree with most of your arguments. Why is a Navy related to the GDP per capita? Scandinavia has insignificant Navy's and has a huge GDP per capita. Also, even EuroMaidan didn't threaten the lease of Sevastopol until I think 2040 and Ukraine needed the billions for its lease so badly that they would have never cancelled the deal. Strategically there barely was a need to take this step. Now they are subject to sanctions that probably harm their Navy more in terms of budget cuts that outweigh the benefits of a warm water port. The economy is in the sewer because of that and I think if the real incomes will continue to drop at this pace, very soon the regime will collapse. I think Putin invaded Crimea to distract from domestic issues and because he is a power addict as the occupation of Crimea is extremely expensive and drains the Russian economy. Also, NATO armies have been in serious decline since the early 90's in terms of budget and manpower, and except for the U.S. no single European army, no perhaps even all combined can seriously threaten Russia. NATO isn't threatening Russia, and this NATO fear is only constructed to blame domestic problems on a imaginary foe. If Russia stops waging war and reduces its military budget significantly, it can invest in education and infrastructure that Russia really needs. If Russia wasn't so corrupt and obsessed with other countries like Ukraine and the U.S., it could have been the world's most prosperous nation as it has enormous natural resources and a fairly well educated workforce.

    Here we have two hot NATO lovers - Dmitri Patronov and NOFKAS01- who claim that NATO is a peace-loving organization ! (??) What ??? That's what I call - totally zombified crowd ! NATO was created as a military organization to oppose the military power of the USSR ! Answering to thIs NATO challenge the USSR signed in Warsaw the military pact with its easteuropean allies. The USSR and the Warsaw treaty organization were disbanded by Gorbachev in early 1990s. But NATO did not disband and instead waged the war against Yugoslavia ruining that country and establishing the Muslim terrorist and narco-trafficing region of Kosovo as a separate state ! Later on NATO troops participated in the destruction of several other countries located outside their defensive sphere of responsibility in Europe (thus violating the principles on which this military alliance was based in the first place) ! Now NATO is plain and simple the european branch of the US Armed Forces at the command of the US President.

    Jisoo Kim 6 days ago

    Actually Germany isn't really relying on Russian oil and gas. The oil imported from Russia is a small percentage only and while a good chunk of gas comes from Russia, there is no real dependency anymore. Since the renewables and coal plants cover most of Germany's energy needs, if Russia ever were to shut off the exports they would end up hurting themselves more than the Germans since the Russian economy is depending on exports of natural resources. In case of a gas shortage Germany would just power up the coal plants that are currently held in reserve, shut down gas plants and just buy the gas needed for other uses from other sources. The stocked supplies are big enough for about half a year which is more than enough time to resupply from a different source.

    Russia, like almost all other Slavic countries has a mentality problem, not a geography one. Slavic people are prone to fight with each other, wage wars and cause problems for one another. Political and economic development are also major factors. Slavic people are greedy, politicians steal when they come to power and always work for themselves and close ones rather then the benefit and well being for their country and people.

    Russia is not the original name of this country. Russia comes after Urus, meaning ,,Great" Urus - Rus - Russia.
    Urus is an adjective, it cannot be a name of people or nation. Thats because thats not the complete name. Its URUS-BULGAR. Thats the original name of this country. URUS-BULGAR means - Great Bulgaria. Its very famous country from Antiquity and early Middle Ages, which very strangely dissapeared and ,,RUS" appeared :p
    Thats why Russians use Bulgarian alphabet, Bulgarian Christianity and speak Old form of Bulgarian language.

    Russia was and still is and will be an unconquerable country. The size and sheer will of the Russian people that survived some of the hardest times humanity have ever experienced in its history. Not only survived but prospered. Russia is the richest country in the world by potential. They have everything imaginable from oil, gas, gold, silver, platinum, coal, uranium, titanium, (untapped oil and gas reserves that can supply entire world for the next 100 years) forests, fertile soil, clean unpolluted rivers, untouched natural goods that human foot has not even yet set and is not allowed to set because of laws against human impediment on nature. The list goes on.... it is true that most Russians live in the European part of Russia and that it's the majority of peoples lives in th western part of the country but that is nothing to be concerned about... look at Australia. What the main issue with Russia is that the country has been boycotted by the west since the revolution and free trade and commerce was only done with handful of countries and not the entire world. To average Russian it does not matter that they earn 7k (per capita) because unlike Americans, Russians all own their own homes, they get free education and healthcare and are able to live of what they earn and live comfortably. Yes hard times of the 90's due to the collapse of the system were hard, but that has passed. Not everything is perfect... no country is perfect but Russia is growing strong...... USA is so afraid of Russia because they know if Russia unleashes it's unlimited resources upon Europe (oil, gas, energy) the standard and Russian economy is going to skyrocket and it could easily become the world power number 1 unmatched in history. This is why US is building bases around the world trying to stem small countries from making relations with Russia to tap into Russian energy because they know if that happens they influence in the world will diminish. USA is behaving like a thug... overthrowing and instigating wars around the world for the sole purpose to keep it's power and influence, but guess what this is what Rome tried to do also and it failed big time...why? because they had no other plan but to conquer militarily and it the end it imploded. The same is going to happen to US.... Trump sees this and is trying to prevent confrontation in which the US cannot win...but left wing globalists in the US are stil holding on to power.

    If they don't pass, the credit is all theirs.
    3. If you just come and see my conversation with someone else, you can't raise charges that easily, at least you have to point out to what you criticize in order to understand what you mean.
    4. If you have read my replies to Michele Hanlon, his posts have been deleted and without them you can't learn how he escalated the exchange and what his actual words were.
    Therefore, you are speaking of something you don't know.
    5. If you consider that *Pindostani* is offensive, just figure out a name for your country instead of *Pindostan* because _'America'_ is the name of continent.
    *_What is an actual insult is to grab the name of the continent and involve all the other American countries in the crimes you commit against them and the rest of the world as well._*

      @Tusk - Finally! Someone with a brain on this forum. Don't know if I agree with you that sanctions did not hurt Russia at all though. It definitely did hurt them as there was a downturn in the economy as a result.
      The positive thing however is that Russia has great, patriotic, human resources. Despite the Hollywood cliche, Russians are actually far more educated than Westerners think. There is a culture of continuous study in Russia. They have one of the highest literacy rates in the world.
      The West does not and probably will never understand the Russian mind. As a result of sanctions, Russians simply went and started doing things for themselves. They no longer import grain. They now grow their own, and in fact have become a major exporter. Some will know how often ordinary Russians have "thanked" the US for sanctions on social media, as it has made them stronger and more self-sufficient than ever.

      Nuclear weapon is not more than a scary cudgel to make shure there wouldn't be new Great War.
      Because now we don't need to burn our own sities to make enemy army starve - now we can burn the whole globe and no one of our enemies wants it :D

      I think in the third quoter of 20-s century Russia reach the point where only Russians can destroy it.
      But, to be hornest, I am still not very optimistic about Russia's future. We are too good at destroing things - just look what Eltsin did in eight years :/
