    Vann < You seems to forget one thing. The galactic debt of United States of America and rest of the western world. Western world is taught to live consumer life... thats very bad. They consume more than they produce. So they print money and printing money means inflation, high inflation means higher social expenses and cost of living which reduces quality of life and that reduces education, healthcare and other social factors... thas ofcourse provided that Dollar will remain as world reserve current and that world will not find out that FED does dont have any remaining gold at all... USA is effectively broke and its only a question of time when world will realize that... Putin knows this and thus he knowd he does not need to be playing a game of cat and mose with Yanks. He only needs to follow them so that when america falls there will be Russia and China replacing america in many spheres of life....

    Because having a super heavy rocket will allow Russia to more faster reach the moon
    and deploy a Base there?

    They can't afford to do such things now... they need to replace a few satellites and add new ones and get their new space port fully operational... what you are suggesting is the equivalent of demanding they start building full sized carriers... 5 of them... now. Because the US has 10 now and russia needs what the US has.

    I think the problem Vann is describing is actually based on hollywood and CNN and the BBC.

    It does not matter what the Russians do or do not build... hollywood and CNN and the BBC will always focus on the failures and the weaknesses or just ignore everything completely.

    What Russia really needs to do is create something like RT (done), and also it needs to fund movies that promote Russia and make them in English so they are more accessible to those sympathetic to the Russian cause in the west like those who visit this forum.

    Sell them on the internet for a nominal fee, or give them away free.

    Sell other Russian products directly to international customers too.

    Some people will buy things just because they are Russian and that makes them novel and unique in this western world of crap from china.

    We need movies that really tell the Russian story of WWII and even WWI and the Crimean wars past present and future...

    They will be written off as propaganda on the BBC and CNN, but that does not matter because that is all the BBC and CNN are anyway.

    Well produced movies with good storylines and good acting and professional production have an influence well beyond their cost... I am sure Sir Peter Jackson might be interested in making a war movie in Russia about Stalingrad or the Battle of Moscow or the battle of Kursk and being a kiwi is less likely to make it a crap movie like saving private ryan, or pearl harbour.

    How about a movie about the Soviet liberation of Manchuria?

    Or a movie set in the near future of space exploration... or a real sci fi involving the Tunguska incident...

    Have ten of your brightest directors follow him around and learn from him and look at other directors that are not anti Russian and get them on board too.

    Garry such movies are for the old die-hard fans but not for the new generation. New young generation does not care much for the ww2 (sad reality).
    But knowing Russian industry it was allways focused on defense related products and space.
    Today Russia lacks consumer products in high technology sector.
    Lada is on its way to become a modern car producer although Andersson messed up the last year pretty badly - thats why they booted him.
    Russians needs to build their electronics industry, medicine (drugs) - when they have these 2 then they can do the rest.
    Also one of the things Russian industry lacks is the industrial design. Russian products were allways known to be sturdy, bulky, enduring and cheap - but they were ugly.
    Reminds me of a Japanese Nissan whoose cars were really good but not pleasing to the customer eye.
    Perhaps whats why Avtovaz joined the alliance where Nissan is....
    However Yota is a nice example of a company oriented on consumer services and producst internationally (i am happy Yotaphone customer).

    Young generation are not interested in WWII because they don't know anything about it... a good exciting movie about it that is not cheesy US BS like how America won WWII by being attacked at Pearl Harbour is just what they need...

    Other such movies to inspire young Russians to take science instead of marketing and you will have the engineers you need to go to Mars in 15 years time.

    The movie "My iz budushego" which translates "We are from the future" is one of such good movies of 4 young men which are all wasters of oxygen, one is a neo nazi, the other is a greedy asshole that violates the rest of the dead to get their WW2 belongings to sell them off to collectors, the other is a junky and another guy was one of those liberasts who would sell his family just to get away from any bodily harm aka traitor. Which are wished back to the past off WW2 and to find the son of an old lady who lost her son during WW2 and never could find piece since she does not know what exactly happened to him. That part is the unrealistic one, but it is about the 4 young man which are formed to proper functioning beings that care about others, their country and reject this nazism sympathy they had during the war. Realitve small budget movie, with not perfect special effects, but uses the budget very well on good actors, setting and props and hits the Theme it tried to capture. One of the best movies that came from russia. Worth to watch.

    The unfortunate thing is they are very rare, the money and budget of the ministry of culture is given to horseshit, foreigners directors for jackass like movies, with constant humor about farts or fecees like most of this western nonsense of the recent past instead of trying to get budget done for one of the russian literatures which are world known to create a good movie like War and Peace with modern means to create a movie not just for russian but also for all slavic and other regions. That is what they fail to do, to purge the liberasts in ministry of culture and bring budgets to worthy film creators.

    US debt is not caused by the successful American companies like Microsoft ,Intel ,Apple.
    or its entertainment like holywood or music or video games. US debt is caused by its corruption,  by its 800 military bases world wide , it cost a lot to military the world ,the rent of paying that, the money they spend in financing revolutions and NGOs worldwide ,the money spend bribing politicians. and on its wars. and financing on terrorism.

    Contrary to Gary opinions CNN or BBC cannot counter Business reality ,like Russia success in Business with energy like Gazprom ,Russia space program . western media can mislead people with Politics and wars , but not with business . because successful business can be easily confirmed . A new Car ,a new Computer a new plane a new Space Shuttle ,music or a movie or video game ,Russia Soyuz ,you can't hide the success of those things. specially when they themselves promote it ,since use it and need it.

    US gov /pentagon do not sanction Russia space program (So that american companies stop using it)  because they need it.   So this is a perfect example How Need ,can be used
    as a weapon , to influence your enemies . how Russia can use its business ,to make the west cooperate with Russia and help its economy and influence in not continue its destructive path.

    But you bet that as soon Americans find a replacement for Russian engine ,they will sanction
    Russia space program too from the west. SO the NASA - Russia space program cooperation should be an example a major and clear example for MR Putin ,of in which direction he needs
    to move Russia if he wants to defeat Americans in their own game. Of manipulating and controlling the world with their business , so its moves to their orbit. So all that Russia needs to do ,to no longer allow americans to influence the world to follow their way ,their lead ,their sanctions and their wars,  is that Russian become a Leader too ,through business and create things everyone wants in the west really wants and that only Russia have it. So the cold war/hot proxy war American have with Russia will not end ,by Russia becoming rich. Selling wheat or timber ,but by dominating in business that are very attractive for the west. Why the west and not the east? Because the west is the one causing Russia problem on its developments not the east. is the west seeking to destroy Russia ,financing revolutions in any place Russia have interest, and is the west the one encircling Russia with tanks and missiles. So Russia cannot ignore the west. because is the west control the rules in the world of politics ,the one that control business in the world. If Americans manage to control Europe as they control Ukraine.
    it will be game over for Russia. it will become isolated from the world most developed economies and even disconnected from the world banking system and internet. So not even tourism or traveling to the west, they will be able to do. since you need Visa or Mastercard for that. And not even China will be able to help. if they do that , then it will be a matter of time US will disband Russia ,because every thing Russian citizens more enjoy to have is not produced by their country but the west. Aside that Russia will risk NATO expansion to many other border nations ,like Findland ,or Belarus ,puting at serious risk its nation security. So Russia own existence depends on whether it become a leader or not in the world in business. in the most prestigious ones that is. Because Americans will pressure the entire world to choose a side.

    Is all about being a business leader or not. The real Power of Americans comes not from
    its military or its bubble economy. The real power of Americans comes from its Business
    leadership in technology and entertainment but also many other things. pharmaceutical ,
    restaurants chains ,etc. and its Lead in Space exploration.  Russia edge is only in taxi to the ISS,cheap rockets and in energy. Unfortunately for Russia Americans have also Energy too as much as Russia have.and will soon have its own Taxi to the ISS.

    So this is why Russia cannot just be happy with having a postive GDP. its needs to lead too and compete with Americans very well , just like Japan does ,if it wants to have a change to disband NATO and end any anti Russian alliance in the world.  IF Russia was landing in the moon or mars with humans now, Americans will be unable to demonize Russia anymore and continue its anti Russian alliance. ,since every country in the world including NATO ones ,will be celebrating Russia achievement. and western companies will be fighting to get in line to participate with Russia in space.  Is all about Business attraction. If Russia was a very attractive country its business for the world ,more than Europe ,NATO will not exist at all , and the Ukraine revolution will have not happened. Euromaidan will be seeking to join Russia and not Europe. It is business
    attraction what creates the American western block.  So Russia needs to be more aggressive in
    space and compete better in business with the west.  So that it can attract Europe to the Russian orbit ,since  it will become an alternative to USA ,without the destructive policies they have in the world.

    But not only Europe will be influenced ,but Americans too. They will see with Respect Russia ,and will realize that they will benefit a lot more by being allies with Russia than enemies. If Russia was mastering space travel to the moon and mars ,with humans and return , NATO countries ,will be no longer seek to fight Russia and instead to create alliance with them.  If Russia did not spend so much in Sports ,in giving away free money to pensioners ,in maintaining so large soviet rusty navy to project power ,(ie.. Russia have more surface warships today than Americans) and then cut in half its military power symbolic projection ,then they will be already today traveling to the moon and mars and other satellites and having a major lead in space. to lead in Space is very expensive ,but to allow Americans to lead in everything and influence Europe and isolate Russia ,because they can do it ,it will be a hundred of times more expensive. because it will allow americans to creates the conflicts and wars that Russia later will have to join. As they are now in two wars ,and both of them created by Americans to damage Russia
    interest in the world.  So effectively Mr Putin's Russia , its lack of leading role in the world in Business ,is costing them many wars ,that Americans create in the world ,to force Russia to join.
    Russia cannot be India ,that is neutral and just focus in business ,because have Americans in an undeclared war against them.

    And India and China are committing a serious mistake in thinking that what happens in the middle east is not their problem. They will also have to face their own wars too ,that they will be unable to ignore ,because will affect their own interest, wars that will destroy their economies.  Wars that they dont see yet ,because Americans are busy fighting Russia. but that eventually will happen too ,since they are not yet aligned with American imperialism in the world. and they will be next.

    all things said , American's proxy war on Russia,(if Russia government wants to learn something about it ), it had to be ,that Russia needs to lead in the world ,if it doesn't want to be isolated
    like IRAN already is ,and later partitioned and disbanded like Soviet Union was. Russia needs
    to lead in business too and competes with Americans ,if it wants to have a chance for the confrontation and cold war to end. It doesn't need to defeat americans in all its business ,but
    just become strong enough in Space and others things that everyone likes will be enough.

    thats correct. Putin stupid Obsession with Sports , is where he is wasting the money of Russia.
    Gary says.. Russia have no money bla bla bla.. But for hosting sports events , the money
    come out of thin air like magic.

    Sochi cost? ...   $52 billions dollars !!!!!

    Fifa 2018 cost? $10 billions dollars!!!!

    then Putin goes and give away for free money of Russian ,to veterans from world war 2 ,
    that are not even living in Russia. Rolling Eyes  

    meanwhile Russia space budget was cut by 30% thanks to the autistic/disconected from
    reality President Putin. Obama announce an increase in the space budget of NASA
    in times US economy is slowing down.  No



    "Today, President Obama is proposing an additional $18.5 billion for NASA, building on the significant investments the administration has made in America's space program over the past six years," Bolden said. "NASA is firmly on a journey to Mars. Make no mistake, this journey will help guide and define our generation."


    So Putin is effectively a traitor to Russians. Because is allowing Americans to easily dominate
    Also in SPACE and become a leader also there. Stealing the show away of Russia from space.
    where Russia have all the opportunities in the world to lead ,but dont do it because
    of the short sight vision of its president.


    While NASA spend near 20 billions (a year) in space.
    Russia announce about that same money but split over a decade.

    So we end with $2.2 billions a year for Russia space program ,
    and near 10x times that number for the American one.
    But when it comes to Sports Russia goes and spend 62 billions !!
    for events that while nice to see, just like many movies, it will only be useful
    for a week of glory , that is if they manage to win a lot of medals.

    That doesn't include the lot of money Russia will have to spend in security
    controlling Savages that always fights in Football sports events. What a fucking waste
    of Money for nothing that will last more than a week in people memories and nothing else.

    So Putin goes spend 62$ billions for a week or two of glory in sports,
    add another hundred of millions dollars for financing Pensioners that not even live in Russia.    
    but then cut by 30% its space program funding and only spend $2 billions
    a year for its space program. but then goes and spend $ 66 Billions dollars every year ,in building a very large soviet navy that Russia absolutely no need ,to project power in the pacific.
    or the artic.  

    Russia lack of leading in role in the world is what really makes Russia to be without allies in the
    world ,in times it really need help. Not even BRICS or any of its closest former soviet blocks helping Russia in Syria.  No   Europe goes and see Russia pathetic influence in the world in business and compares it later with with Americans and see they have nothing to win and
    everything to lose if they leave NATO to join an alliance with Russia.

    So there is a lot of money in Russia to do a LOT OF THINGS. the problem is not money ,
    but the short sight view of Putin over Russia role in the world. it was Putin himself who told
    Americans is the only super power last St Petersburg conference. So how is going to convince
    anyone to follow Russia vision of the world ,if Putin himself admit have no leadership?  lol1

    Putin asked sanctions to be lifted to Europe. but Somehow Putin believe that he could somehow influence Europe to do as if says ,just because he is asking politely who talks about friendship.  No  Europeans Government will not care a shit about Russia alternative view of the world ,
    or how Russians saved Bulgaria and Europe from invasions. they will only care about Business
    leadership that Russia do not have and Americans do have. This is the core of Russia problems
    of not influencing anyone. Its lack of leadership. And by being just a taxi to the ISS ,and by
    winning olympics ,Russia will do a SHIT to convince anyone to follow their more constructive and fair view of the world. The western developed world only cares about leading nations in
    technology and business , specially the business they are behind and will like to develop more for their own future.

    look at this @Seph.

    $242 BILLIONS!!!!  train from China to Moscow.

    https://www.rt.com/business/225131-russia-china-speed-railway/

    so see how the money shows up ,in things Russia really consider important?
    modern and fast  trains are nice ,and to cut the trip by 80% even better. But this is not in
    any way better that Russia dominating ,mastering and leading space travels to the moon
    and mars, With that kind of money. Just imagine what Russia could do
    with 242$ billions if they invested on Russia space program ? and a state of the art modern train to china ,that while is nice is not really critical for Russia to have at this time ,specially
    when another train is already in place that do that ,but is not modern.

    There is simply something really wrong , with Putin's view of the capitalist world and the way
    he develop Russia to be attractive for foreign business ,close to mediocre at best. If you compare how Russia is today and how it could be ,if it didn't wasted so much money in useless
    things. If Putin still looking to build a nuke train?   No   Hopefully he will leave Russia in 2018.
    and a real businessman that is patriotic to Russia too will take his place.

    Observing Putin ,how he develops Russia, will be similar to observing a race , a marathon
    of 20 km where your favorite Runner is winning , and looks that will win ,but when he is about to get to the final 100 meters, he stop and start running in reverse because dont want to lead. No

    So Putin's policies are wrong ,since he encourage Americans to fight Russia in an undeclared war in many fronts , ie. Ukraine and Syria and there will be more ,because Russia does not show any leadership in the world , does not influence its enemies correctly. it looks like Putin try to influence Americans with moral and values and human rights. But thats not what will get
    him convince Americans to stop its undeclared war.

    Putin dont see how his own lack of leadership and Russia lack of leading role in business is the problem. Europeans will never abandon the american way ,the american business for the Russian ones . Sanctions are simply Americans telling Europe. you either follow Russia business or follow American ones , choose. then Europe choose to stay behind Americans ,and its promotion of an alternative world , where Russia is worse than ISIS and not as bad as ebola like Obama told. and that invaded Ukraine and Syria and the refugees is the fault of Russia. and Russia wants now to invade the baltics and putin is seeking to create an empire. Rolling Eyes

    If Russia was clearly a leader in space and stealing the show there ,it will be impossible for americans to hold the loyalty of Europe ,and Russia then become a magnet for all world talent to move to Russia and create the industrial revolution Russia needs to overtake US Business. Most American IT business ,the ones that leads the world ,into technology and entertainment are the product of migrants who occupy the top positions in US technology industry.  This doesnt means sports are not important , But that Putin give too much credit to sport than to space. Im sure that since Putins came to power , he inverted the roles of his priorities and switch the funding he give to sports , to space and the funding of space ,used for Sports. Then none of this problems of sanctions will ever matter at all. European and Americans will be fighting each other to have
    the rights to do something together with Russia in space.  Cool  and you will not see the disrespect of the American and Jews Neocons on Russia , those billionaires will be even fighting for a ticket to the moon in tourism.  Russia should push forward a very ambitious plan to make a business giving tours around the moon and return and restart is space shuttle program and to dominate the traveling to the near planets of earth with humans. that will truly steal the show in the world ,more than any Sochi olympics or Fifa combined. Will not have to waste money hiring a hundred of thousand police in many cities, to keep the security in stadiums and outside them.

    The bonus of dominating space long travels and clearly leading there ,will also help Russia on its security and military too. Create Russia its own space station but that its orbit covers all Russia territory ,one that can be used too to monitor any NATO movement and launch of any missile. The benefits of investing in space are endless. From Nation Pride ,from Business attraction ,to nation security ,military development and science. a money very well invested that move the
    entire nation business.

    The center Khrunichev intends to establish production is not worse than Elon Musk


    http://ria.ru/science/20160623/1449827017.html

    MOSCOW, June 23 — RIA Novosti, Alexander Kovalev. Omsk production Association (ON) "Flight" after the completion of the reconstruction program in its technological level will not concede space company SpaceX American businessman Elon musk, said in an interview with RIA Novosti General Director of the state space Center Khrunichev Andrew Kalinowski.

    Elon Musk is an American entrepreneur, inventor and investor. He is the founder, owner and chief engineer of the private space company SpaceX, which NASA signed a contract worth $ 1.6 billion. Musk intends ten times to reduce the cost of space flight and stated that his company hopes to 2020-2025 years to fly to Mars. American also implements the Hyperloop project that involves the development of a new high-speed vehicle.

    The head of the Center Khrunichev said that FOR "Flight" already uses the latest space technology, and after reconstruction the plant will be one of the most advanced in its market segment.

    "For example, we in Omsk in the production of tanks "Angara" is used a friction welding. And soon you will see a mirror milling. So here with Elon Musk will be at least parity. But from the point of view of organizing principles of the production of space technology, the ideology itself, I can assure you that our company will be one of the most advanced," said Kalinowski.
    Answering the question of whether or not "Flight", according to the example of the enterprises of the Mask, introduced a fundamentally new technology for cheaper, head of the Khrunichev Centre said, "Elon Musk did not create something fundamentally new. But I must admit that he when he went into space theme, invited from various industries, including aviation and automotive, competent engineers and marketers. And together they figured out what narrow segment of the space industry is the most rapidly developed and successfully proposed a solution, using the experience of related industries".
    The Khrunichev center is one of the leading enterprises of the Russian aerospace industry. The main products of company now are carrier rockets of family "proton" and boosters to them.

    Elon Musk is a shyster. His claim to reduce launch costs by a factor of ten has to be dissected before it
    is to be believed. There is no way he will achieve prices of about $5 million per launch. It would
    take at least that much to overhaul any "reusable" rocket SpaceX contrives.

    Musk is a liar who was trying to convince everyone that ULA charges $460 million per launch. So 10% of
    this puffed up figure comes to $46 million. Well, gee whiz, golly gee wilikers, that is basically the price of
    a single Proton launch. Not such a big achievement is it now.

    It has been stated on zerohedge a while ago that Elon Musk is heavily dependent on subsidies. Those subsidies in turn create cheap launches and cheaper production for electric automobiles. But subsidies cost money of course.

    Not that will surprise me...  if he did.

    Some other images of other re-usable projects proposed by
    Russian scientist.

    Russian Defense Ministry to receive 2nd Angara rocket by yearend

    The deal is conducted under federal space program

    OMSK, July 29. /TASS/. The Khrunichev Space Center will deliver the 2nd Angara-A5 carrier rocket to the Russian Defense Ministry by the end of 2016, Center Deputy CEO Roman Khokhlov told TASS on Friday.

    "Under the federal space program, we are to deliver the ready-made rocket [to the customer] by the end of 2016 for acceptance," Khokhlov said, adding that the launch date for the 2nd heavy Angara carrier rocket would be set by the customer.

    At the first stage, the Omsk-based Polyot production association, which is part of the Khrunichev Space Center, will be annually producing five heavy and several light Angara family rockets, Khokhlov said.

    "If necessary, the production facilities will help increase this number several-fold," the Khrunichev Space Center deputy CEO said.

    "To give an idea of Polyot’s role in the production of the heavy Angara rocket, for example, it can be said that over 70% of its 55-meter height is now manufactured in Omsk. This share will increase after the manufacture of the nose fairing is transferred to Polyot," Khokhlov said.
