Russia in 2020 broke the record of the entire USSR for generating electricity at nuclear power plants
Sorry to ruin the party , but those achievements are meaningless ,if you look at the bigger
picture .The soviet union was highly undeveloped , it was mostly focused to military ,science and
medicine , albeit they did some progress in semiconductors too and automobile industry.
if you compare the numbers that Russian media celebrate with nations with half the population
like japan ,that are very close to the russian ones. then you will see those numbers not that important.Created: 8 November 2020
So a country like Canada with just 20% of the population of Russia ,produce as much energy
as "super power" Russia.
Russia is a backward nation , means a nation that looks to the past progress and stay there in the past . they don't seek to lead the world in anything ,other than weapons and bullshit sports. They don't invest much in education , neither invest much in their space program. japan is lately even investing more in space than Russia is doing and more agressive too ,they landed a probe in a meteor ,while Putin's the yoda "genius" , have remained for 20 years ,happy just doing taxi to the ISS.
But i want to explain exactly what is going on with Russian media. They understand clearly the world
see Russia as a backwards nation ,and this olympics that putin wasted his money did not changed
this perception at all.. and i will explain why.
Qatar have the best infrastructure money can buy ,the best airports ,
the best 5 star hotels , have many of the tallest buildings in the world , they also have the highest quality of life standards in the world ,in terms of infrastructure and comfort.. Qatar is rated as the richest country in the world per citizen capital , the average salary in qatar for their citizens is
$130,000 american dollars a year. There is no unemployment in Qatar , or close to zero , have best
hospitals.. and Qatar following the example of backwards Putin ,will now have the best olympics facilities in the world. still even with all those achievements ,everyone see Qatar as a gas station ,
as a third world nation ,as a nation that contribute in NOTHING to the world ,other than energy discounts .
So this is why Russia ,just like Qatar is a backwards nation ,and outdated country. with a lot of shiny and pretty infrastructure , but all this development is cosmetic , pretty expensive parks , expensive airports and amazing olympic avenues.. but all this things are cosmetic development.. you can take an 80 year old women and buy her the best jewels and best clothing ,and hire the best makeup artist and best hair stylish.. but still she will be an old women.. it will not change. it might appear to be younger with the right cosmetics to others , but is all an illusion.
That said , autocratic Putin and Russia are both outdated , an outdated politician , just like autocratic king of Qatar and Qatar are ,and building a gas station empire ,as putin wanted with gasprom will not change that.
Just like Qatar , the culture of Russia ends at its borders. their former soviet republics are not even interested in embracing the russian language ,kazakistan is moving away to distance its culture even more from russia. When you have a country that lose influence , with all its neighbors ,that don't respect Russian interest. as Ukraine ,Georgia , Azerbaijan ,Baltics , kazakistan , Armenia , Finland that wants to join NATO ,Turkey. .etc etc etc.. When Russia fails to influence its immediate neighbors is a leadership problem and other countries more backwards than Russia ,like turkey is , or very far away like america , Then this is a leadership problem. When people don't follow you after you tell them to follow you , when nations don't listen your country after being told to do this or that , is a leadership problem. Is a problem of influence ,poor leadership = poor influence
And using the example of Qatar , that is very rich , qatar don't have influence in the world ,versus
any major developed nation. Why ? because Qatar is just a liquid gas station and nothing else. and people need a lot more than cheap energy ,a job and a high salary. society will always prefer to live in a country that have the leading business in the world ,that more impact have in society lives.
So this is why russia is a backward religious ,backward economy nation ,with backward president.
and this is why russia is losing a lot of its population , to the west ,because putin is taking russia in
a backward direction. and no ammount of hypersonic missiles ,and olympic medals , or pretty parks
will change that. The only thing that could reverse Russia massive depopulation problem is ,that its government start a major education revolution in the country ,to promote science and technology carreers on all population ,and unite the nation to focus in a space exploration conquer mission.
follow the example of china.. and put an end to the gas station .. instead of gas stations , i will have done a solar energy revolution ,total independence of every home in russia from the government for
electricity. This will also be very useful in case of war too ,because those generating plants of electricity will be the first casualties in case of a nuclear war. An electric engines revolution ,magnetic
energy revolution.. solar energy revolution and portable nuclear energy too for space and military and civilian uses... this is how Russia can stop being backwards nation and start leading .
The Moscow stock exchange (MOEX) index reached a new all-time high on Monday, as Russia's national currency, the ruble, opened the first trading day of 2021 with an upward move, triggered by rising oil prices.
The ruble was 0.7 percent stronger against the dollar at 73.82, and gained 1.1 percent to trade at 90.50 against the euro.
If Russia economy is not a gas station ,then why when oil prices increase ,the ruble currency
automatically improve.. ?
unfortunately ,as optimistic i will like to be , i don't see Russia ever taking off , ever leading on
anything meaningful in the world ,with Putin in power . Not because Russia don't have the scientific
talent ,but because to do a major revolution in Russia , you need a modern thinker in power ,someone that is not insecure as putin is , as more self confidence too.. and more importantly
someone with a vision of the future . there is almost nothing much worse for a country ,that having an insecure president , that lacks of any major ambitions and only wants "stability" on its economy
and peace on the city and nothing else.
Putin is killing Russia , in a literal way ,by his inaction ,
by developing russia as a gas station , as a pipeline economy ,he is doing a lot of damage to russia leadership in the world ,to russian interest ,by not offering any competition to its adversaries.
This is why i don't see a chance of Russia to be successful nation ever ,and at best will only survive only. Putin and his fake religion church and his olympics fever needs to go ,and be replaced for a true 21 century digital and space business revolution with the aim of leading the world.. and not for anything less. Who could do such kind of revolution ? maybe his prime minister could have a chance ,he is a computer scientist and think differently , could be interesting to see what he can do . Rogozin is not engineer but he also have ambitions , i have seen on tv saying how important is to lead on space and promote chemical engineering , he have a son ,that is studying that.. this are the kind of people ,that promote science and technology on television as the salvation of russia ,what
Russia needs as leader of the nation. Which ever it is , next russian leader ,will have to be the opposite of everything that is wrong about putin. cannot be polite , need to be strong , and passionate for technology and not boring and insecure person as putin is. he is a bad influence , a bad leader for the country.
