Meeting with Modest Kolerov and deputy head editor of a REGNUM Igor Pavlovsky was held at the conference hall of Hotel Avalon. It was made available in Riga published a collection of articles "The throbbing of empires" in which are gathered the freshest articles Kolerova. Describing the history of cooperation with the Baltic Forum Kolerov and publication of the collection, the executive director of the Baltic Forum Alexander Vasilyev handed word capital visitors.
Shades himself introduced himself himself as a representative of the right-liberal Russian political band, which, according to him, are moving closer to the Franco-German model of social country that has survived its imperial decline, but not capable and not daring to survive itself. "We are not a government fighters. We — the soldiers of the country," — said Shade. According to him, the Eurasian region has a number of historical patterns. "I'm a historian Prof, but only after 25 years of its activities was to recognize that the challenged before — the geopolitical and geo-economic framework of the existence of. Nobody ever guaranteed the survival of any society. Historical path is littered with the skeletons of civilizations. Fact that we live without means that we will win. Nobody is safe from damage that can be caused by policy mistakes of politicians, blindness society, genocide, "- said Shade.
His vision of the moment Shades outlined as follows: "We are the last Romans, who moved through the ruins of the empire." Because weird and seemingly contradictory so pessimistic entry, sounded his statement: "Naturally, we will survive and win." Beat Russia accounts, according Kolerova, not with an external enemy — the fight is with ourselves: "We remember that the main premise of our defeats is not unhappy Washington Regional Committee, and the betrayal of its political elite and intellectuals of his stupidity."
In turn, the head of the western neighbor of — European Alliance — Shades styled modern empire, doomed to destruction. European Union — embodied example of double standards, an example of the connection of multi-level and diverse civilizations. "If the EU uses for its own eastern suburbs as an instrument of approval" European values "nationalism, apartheid and pro-Hitler revisionism, this is evidence that the European Union — Empire enters into a stage ends with its own economic and political crisis," — he explained. According Kolerova is inconsistent connection tolerance and apartheid is a tool — nationalism, apartheid and pro-Hitler revisionism — suggests relation to the EU's eastern neighbors as "barbarians." But the main challenge of the European Union, according to Kolerova is an internal call — Islamization of Europe in view of the approaching demographic disaster an old Europe.
According to him, this process is a severe hazard to the Russian Federation, "If the EU will fall rapidly, Russia will be very hard. Frisky We do not need the destruction of the EU. How long will decay over this throbbing empire — the European Union — the easier it will be the Russian Federation."
The belief that the EU cope with economic difficulties, have no Kolerova: "Economically the EU will not stand. He will dump bad assets in the form of entire nations." Commenting on the zeal of Latvia by all means join the euro zone, Shade said, "There is a special pleasure is to jump into the last car of the train, falling into the abyss. But [Prime Minister Valdis] Dombrovskis does it, on the basis of aesthetic judgments and calculations to pursue a career in Brussels. "
Geopolitical boundaries of modern RF Shades spent on the western border of Belarus, which has historically separates it from Poland and the southern and eastern borders of Kazakhstan (the "internal borders between Kazakhstan and Russia does not exist"), which separates Russia from the "global Afghanistan" and China. Hence the Moscow's efforts to establish a Eurasian Customs Union, which, according to Kolerova, is the limit of the desires and abilities of. Ukraine can not be a part of the Customs Union because of its own internally divided, says Shades. Itself, which it did Stalin and Khrushchev, Ukraine is not vitality, he said. "God forbid it starts to crack, and unprofitable, energy-intensive and inefficient Donbass fall on our shoulders!" — Highlighted the lack of interest Shades of in the split of Ukraine de facto.
"Nothing else (except Belarus and Kazakhstan — IA REGNUM) from the periphery of the former Russian Empire and the Russian Federation do not fatal to her," — again confirmed Shades lack of neo-imperial ambitions of the Russian Federation in which it does not get tired incriminating in the capitals of the Baltic countries.
A wave of protests in Russia around the presidential and parliamentary elections Shades glossed over. But first a question which came after the entry relating to the specific internal political turmoil in the RF the near future. In general, Shade does not consider anti-Putin concert in Moscow and St. Petersburg, severe traffic, though, and considers that this phenomenon has deep roots in the history of the Russian Federation: "All three of the Troubles in Russia had its own base of the middle layer, which was not represented in the government. "Shades of allocated but that Bolotnaya Square there is no positive applets, and directed attention to the fact that the movement, which he described as" glamorous revolution ", uses media and in depth technical support inside the government and because of the abroad. Elsewhere Shade said that for "glamorous opposition" vast mass of private property owners do not go: the imperative elite in Russia is split, and the company is consolidated as it is multiethnic and multicultural society saves more acute inner peace.
Counting harm "from the Russian occupation," resumed Lithuania, like he did not look anecdotal, says Shades large discrepancies for Russia. In his view, it is not out of eagerness to tease Moscow, and from a desire to "drink the same tea twice or even three times": the means to make money, and build a civilization, and show themselves bolshennymi European than the Europeans themselves. At issue is not whether the West is preparing a new Nuremberg, but it is now over Russia, he answered in the affirmative: "Nuremberg over Russia in the West is prepared."
Responding to a question, whether seen in RF referendum on granting the
Russian language the status of municipal, Shade said, "The language referendum in Russia seen, but, unfortunately, not supported by all available means. […] Referendum by language — a local initiative, and it is not supported, as no one in Russia could not warm your hands on it. " According to him, the Russian Community of Latvia referendum was the only reference method to express their own interests and the existence of difficulties. "Other methods do not. Fooling the results of the referendum on February 18 will not work," — he singled out. On another occasion, Shade said that Russian in Latvia, "the first EU standards" have the right, at least at the regional status for their language. According to him, Russia's position on the issue of language and statelessness Latvia would have been more fundamentally and more than significant, if Russian business was not going to "insider trading" with the Latvian political class. But Russian business does not patriotic, complained Shades, whose views on Our homeland is to support Russian school and the press in Latvia by means of a fully legitimate grounds. "At the moment it is sluggish, since it leaves less capacity for theft," — he added.
"Our homeland had colonies in the truest sense of the word. On her head she — not sucking resources from the suburbs, and invested in them," — saw the Shades, in response to another question. According to him, the desire of South Ossetia to join the Russian Federation — the will of the people of South Ossetia, with which the Russian Federation has to be considered, even if from a political point of view, the Russian Federation is not profitable. In turn, the recognition of the independence of South Ossetia and Abkhazia, he referred to the main achievement of the presidency of Dmitry Medvedev. As for the strategic alliance of Russia and China, China does not need allies, and does not recognize them, it is self-sufficient, said Shade.
Answering a transferred him REGNUM correspondent question director of the Russian Institute of Contemporary Development Igor Jurgens, causing intense economic and cultural relations between Latvia and Russia are not going on the level of political dialogue, Shade said, "Jurgens cunning. If everything depended on him, things could be very decent, even family . But the standards of bilateral Russian-Latvian relations are given here in Riga. Latvia builds a civilization that is not built with no view of the enemy. So this is a question for the local political elite that instead of political dialogue builds the image of the enemy. "
In this regard, Kolerova forecast of development of Russian-Latvian relations sounded followed by this: "Taking into account that most likely followed by the Prime Minister will Raivis Dzintars (" Everything — Latvia!"-TB/DNNL), Cases of Latvia and the Russian Federation will not improve." In response to the outrage of the 1st of journalists representing the Latvian media, on what basis does Shades advertising marginal policy (Dzintars — Co is part of the ruling coalition and the government VL-TB/DNNL association, which has eight seats in the 100-seat parliament and is the third level of popular political force in the country — IA REGNUM), he replied: "Let's see what you say when Dzintars will take 20% of the elections. I do not make it commercial. These are your kids. Did you choose it because it in a constructive manner expresses a general outlook, and as long as it (the world) will not reach the wall, do not give up on him. "
On the issue of IA REGNUM, why, recognizing the existence of geo-political and geo-economic framework of the countries, it excludes from the scope of the Russian Federation Baltic states, which objectively is part of the economic system of the East European Plain, Shade said, "Our government recognizes the birthplace of consensus in the Baltic states and the Caucasus. They have made their own choices. We must respect him. If we intervene, we will always lose and blame. Humans have made their own choices and have to go your own way to the end. Even if it leads to their death. "
