UPD: 03/20/2014 Putin's corridor. View from Moldova

Путинский коридор. Взгляд из Молдовы

Russia is building a complete analogue of the Danzig corridor, which it needs for the successful transit of hydrocarbons - the basis of the Russian economy, iPress reports

So, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed an agreement on the admission of Crimea to the Russian Federation. All the talk that Russia will surrender at the last moment, fearing sanctions and condemnation of the world community, has remained talk. However, it was expected from the very beginning.

Other countries recognize or do not recognize the annexation of the Crimea - in this situation it does not matter much. Nothing but a shaking of air, the West is unable to resist Russia today. And while powerless talkers will denounce the Kremlin from international tribunes, the Russians will settle in the Crimea. In fact, this means, first of all, the restoration of the Soviet military bases and the construction of new ones.

Let me remind you that the Crimea during the USSR was not so much a resort as an unsinkable aircraft carrier controlling the Black Sea region. The bases of the Soviet Union, formed, in fact, a second, underground peninsula, capable of withstanding even a nuclear attack. Now Russia has received this infrastructure. Bringing it into working condition is a matter of one or two years, as a result of which Russia will have another defense line. This milestone will not be superfluous for the Kremlin if its conflict with the West ever enters a hot phase - and sooner or later it will probably enter it.

But the hot phase, if there will be, much later. Today there is a surrender without a fight: both the West and Ukraine demonstrate utter confusion and powerlessness against the aggressor. Ukraine is unable to fight: the army in fact does not exist at all, and all the defensive lines in the eastern direction were dismantled by order of Yanukovych. In addition, the new Kiev authorities are not so much concerned with the fate of the country, as with their own salvation and will go to any agreements and any territorial concessions, just to stay. The EU and the United States do not intend to seriously stand up for Ukraine - this is already obvious. Formal sanctions imposed by them against Russia will have no real impact on Moscow.

Of course, in this whole story, a lot of historical analogies are immediately visible. The closest of them is the analogy with Austria and Czechoslovakia, with the events of 1934-38. Today, like eighty years ago, a new player has appeared in Europe, demanding the retake of the entire deck of political cards. The player is not so strong, but desperate, he has nothing to lose. Russia is in an extremely difficult, if not to say disastrous, economic situation, it is actually locked in a corner and therefore plays all-in and, on occasion, will use without hesitation its nuclear weapons as the last argument. However, Europe and the United States have a lot to lose. And because they, being, in principle, many times stronger, do not want to go into direct conflict, hoping to get rid of several pieces of meat thrown by a hungry predator. The role of pieces of meat fell to you and I - Ukraine and Moldova - just as eighty years ago it went to Czechoslovakia and Austria.

To understand what is happening today is very easy - just by looking at the map. Before our eyes, Russia is building the full analogue of the Danzig corridor, which it needs for the successful transit of hydrocarbons - the basis of the Russian economy. Currently, relying, including, on a new bridgehead in the Crimea, Russia has begun to seize the South-East of Ukraine. All this is being done to the accompaniment of Putin’s statements that the Crimea is the limit of Russia's demands and that Russia does not pretend to other parts of Ukraine. But I would not take these assurances seriously. At one time, Hitler also said that he had enough Austria, then the Sudetenland, then Czechoslovakia, then Poland ...

So, look at the map. After the capture of the Luhansk, Donetsk and Dnepropetrovsk regions - and this capture is already practically a matter of solution for the next one and a half to two months, an arc clearly appears through the map, passing through the Crimea and ending in Moldova and the Odessa region. Here Russia has excellent bases for the deployment of mobile forces: firstly, Transdniestria, where Russian troops are stationed and there is an airfield capable of receiving all types of aircraft, and, secondly, Gagauz autonomy in the south of Moldova, where a referendum was recently held for rapprochement with the Eurasian Union. By the way, the Gagauz are a divided people. Two-thirds of the Gagauz people live in Moldova and about a third in Ukraine ... Do you catch, what unlimited possibilities for the protection of the violated rights of small and divided people are open here for Russia?

Путинский коридор. Взгляд из Молдовы

And a few more strokes.

The leadership of the unrecognized Transdniestria has already consulted with Moscow and officially appealed to the State Duma Chairman Sergei Naryshkin with a request to provide for in Russian legislation the possibility of the incorporation of Transdniestria into Russia . The appeal was received in the form of a review of the draft law on the simplification of the procedure for the accession of new territories to Russia. Let me remind you that the bill provides for the admission to Russia of the territories of other states, in the absence of "effective legitimate authority" in them, based on the results of the referendum or the appeal of their authorities, and Transdniestria, which belongs to Moldova de jure, is not controlled by it two decades fit this definition just perfect. It is also clear that Gagauzia should be adjusted to this law, plus the territories inhabited by the Gagauz in the Odessa region are a matter of technology and money, everything is solved in a couple of weeks.

Do not waste time in the capital of Gagauzia - Comrat. It has already decided to create a kind of "people's guard", which completely repeats the Crimean scenario. As for Moldova’s ability to resist such actions by force, they are just as ephemeral as Ukraine’s capabilities. Especially in view of the fact that the Russian help - perhaps, according to the scenario tested in Crimea, in the form of "green men" without insignia, can be transferred to the scene of events in just a few hours.

It is characteristic that Moldova, like Ukraine, does not have to rely on the help of its neighbors. Romanian President Traian Basescu has already declared non-interference of his country in the event of Russia's annexing part of Moldovan territory.

Of course, opposition to Russia's plans in our region is still possible - but the window of opportunity is very narrow. Theoretically, Ukraine and Moldova could jointly take control of the situation in Gagauzia and in the border areas of the Odessa region. Could they take control of the situation in Transnistria - but, I repeat, only by concerted actions. However, there will be no concerted action. First of all, both Chisinau and Kiev do not trust each other, and at the decisive moment they will hand over the options, give them back to Moscow - and receive a certain set of bonuses for this. These fears, I must say, are absolutely justified - both by Kiev and by Chisinau. In addition, both in Kiev and in Chisinau, the power is very weak and incapable of decisive actions, all its forces and resources are thrown at one thing - to sit, to sit at any cost. And because the actions of both Chisinau and Kiev were and will be powerless and half-hearted. Chisinau, suddenly waking up, created in the parliament a working group to look at issues relating to the special status of the ATU Gagauzia - that is, did what it was necessary to do twenty years ago - in normal mode, two years ago - in fire order, and now it is already too late . The maximum that Kiev had enough in the Transnistrian direction is to block the border with Moldova and Transnistria for men with Russian passports . However, this half-measure is not enough to bring the situation in the region under control, especially given the absolute cross-border ability for the least physically prepared person. As for Moldova, it does not at all impede the arrival at Chisinau airport of a sporty type of men from 25 to 35 years old, who then depart towards Transnistria. Moldova only detachedly states this as a fact.

With such passivity of the authorities of both states, the scenario of events in the region is quite obvious. Probably, the issue of creating the Putin corridor will be resolved within a month, a maximum of one and a half. In the western part of its arc will enter the Odessa region, Transnistria and Gagauzia. National approval of the annexation will be imitated according to the Crimean model.

As for Ukraine and Moldova, their governments are much more afraid of their own people than of all possible aggressors combined. This fact is especially clearly seen in the example of Ukraine, where the creation of an armed regional militia could at least partially stabilize the situation even today. In Moldova, in general, the same picture - the situation has simply not reached the Ukrainian severity.

The fate of both countries seems to be quite predetermined: the division and annexation of neighbors ; against the backdrop of the complete lack of readiness - and, we will speak directly - of the complete unwillingness of any international to assist them in maintaining independence. The emergence of a resistance movement in the annexed territories, at least in the short and medium term, is also highly unlikely.

Probably, Moscow will push Bucharest in one way or another to annex the right bank of Moldova minus Gagauzia, and Chisinau - to resist this, as the smallest evil from the pro-European Chisinau elites, compared to the prospect of Russian occupation. A similar scenario will probably be implemented between the remnants of Ukraine and Poland. The complicity of the two EU member states in the division of Moldova and Ukraine, even if with the formal consent of the authorities of both states partially occupied by Russia, will allow Moscow to turn Bucharest and Warsaw into partners and its international lawyers, which at least partly legitimize Russian territorial acquisitions.

Thus, if we talk about real forecasts, and not to build castles in the air, hoping for the mythical help of the West, we have to say that Russia has practically won this round. Moreover, if Moscow stops on these territorial acquisitions and does not go further to the West, but the Anschluss of spring 2014 will most likely get away with it. And they will, albeit through clenched teeth, albeit unofficially, but de facto recognized by the world community and fixed for many decades, if not for centuries.

As for further developments, I recommend that readers refer to the last chapter of Karel Čapek’s novel War with Salamanders: "The author talks to himself." A more complete and accurate long-term forecast is hardly possible.

UPD: 20/03/2014 Zhirinovsky demands that Russia not be limited to the Crimea: We do not need a border, we must move on

Жириновский требует, чтобы Россия не ограничивалась Крымом: Нам не нужна граница, надо двигаться дальше

LDPR leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky says that Russia will not stop at the annexation of the Crimea and must "move on."

He said this before voting documents on the annexation of the Crimea by Russia.

“Here the head of the committee says that the land border of Crimea (with Ukraine) is fixed forever. You are mistaken, on the contrary, we do not need this frontier. We need to move on, to do “forever” early, ”Zhirinovsky said to the applause of the Russian deputies.

“If to speak forever, it means to throw millions of Russians in the Donbas, Kherson, Nikolaev, Dnepropetrovsk, Lugansk, Zaporozhye, Odessa. They took a piece, and those Russians let them die, ”he said.

UPD: 20/03/2014 The State Duma officially adopted the Crimea and Sevastopol into the Russian Federation
