In recent years guided by the theory of controlled chaos, the US has provoked "colour" revolutions and wars around the world, flooding Europe with refugees from Yugoslavia, Libya, Iraq, Syria. These events come against the background of the coming collapse of the US financial and banking system, caused by its inability to indefinitely increase the US debt via the Federal Reserve System, that would make the US the only safe haven for capital, plunging the world into chaos,.

The fact that Russia could attract countries seeking to challenge the global hegemony of the United States, has resulted in destructive actions directed against it as well as against its near abroad.

Economic sanctions, insufficient progress in import substitution, the eternal problem of post-Soviet countries - corruption, and as a consequence – capital flight, problems in monetary policy have led to a drop in GDP in Russia. It is thanks to the Russian leadership that the damage from the sanctions has been less than the organizers expected.

Paradoxically, thanks to American actions, processes that dramatically reduce the standard of living and challenge the power structure power, may occur not only in most post-Soviet countries, but also in Europe itself: a zone of chaos and anarchy may appear around Russia, making the problems inside Russia seem insignificant.

As this happens Moscow will inevitably become the center around which a unifying process begins, as has happened several times in our history, for example when Russia recovered  in the form of the Soviet Union after the Civil War, despite the fact that unlike today, it was in blood-soaked ruins.

For the majority of the population, when they have nothing to eat, when there is no security, when you and your family can be killed, raped, robbed, questions of ideology pale into insignificance. If living standards continue to fall amid lack of security in the Ukraine, despite Russophobia, people will be willing to join even to Mars, not only to Russia.

Russian civilization is a thousand years old. Many times outsiders unsuccessfully tried to divide us, to bring us to our knees, but after each challenge, our country, like a Phoenix, rises from the ashes and becomes stronger and more beautiful.
