Is dialogue with Russia necessary and useful, by the example of Ukraine and Moldova?

At the time when our newly-baked old government was again called into parliament by the disgusting and unprofessional “NATO Eurointegration – Russia – occupant” government program, three important and noteworthy events happened:

First – Ukraine’s newly-elected President Zelensky, as soon as his party won a majority in the parliamentary elections, took concrete steps to dialogue with Russia and initially agreed with Vladimir Putin on the exchange of citizens heimprisoned in Russia and Ukraine. The exchange took place on September 7, and Zelenski and Putin then spoke by phone. Zelensky described the prisoner exchange as a first step towards reviving Russian-Ukrainian dialogue, while Putin welcomed the ongoing humanitarian act. They also talked about conflict resolution in the Donbass and the organization of the Normandy Four meeting, namely, it was indicated  that the next meeting should be fruitful and facilitate the implementation of already existing agreements at the highest level (the former President Poroshenko was in no way shying away from it by banal lies).

Observers note that the main reason for progress in Russian-Ukrainian relations is the launch of direct dialogue and the practical fulfillment of the promises made by the new Ukrainian authorities.

According to foreign press reports, the exchange of prisoners between Russia and Ukraine was welcomed by leaders of France, Germany and the US: Emmanuel Macron, Angela Merkel and Donald Trump. Merkel called the story “hopeful,” and Trump described it as the first major step toward peace. The Council of Europe too did not step aside and praised the start of normalization of relations between the two countries. French President Macron personally called Putin, welcomed the ongoing exchange and talked about the preparation for the upcoming Normandy meeting.

Second – On September 7, Vladimir Putin hosted Igor Dodon, President of Moldova, in Moscow. The Russian leader emphasized that stabilization in Moldova made it possible to resume bilateral relations and move into a positive dynamic. For his part, Dodon noted that after June (until June the Moldovan government had a democratic-like anti-Russian hysteria of our nationals, which had lost the parliamentary elections but had been rigged to maintain power, and that if not for the joint efforts of Russia, the US and the EU, chaos would reign in the country). Russia-Moldova contacts at all levels and bilateral relations have changed for the better; Investment and trading dynamics have improved.

Among other things, Dodon and Putin also discussed the issue of natural gas, and Moldova will receive Russian natural gas at a low price from October.

Third: On September 9, French President Macron sent Defense and Foreign Ministers to Moscow, where they agreed with their counterparts – Lavrov and Shoigu – to begin work on the creation of a common European security system with Russia’s participation. To make it clear to the reader: For Europeans, the European border crosses the Mediterranean and Black Seas, as well as the ridge of the Caucasus. Georgia is on the outskirts of this border and the security of the Georgian section of that border will be Russia’s responsibility. Does anyone now believe that both France, Germany, and the European Union will demand that Russia withdraw its troops from Georgia (never before, but still)?

We have achieved so much with our recklessness that we are out of the process of forming a new international security system and how can we safeguard Georgia’s international security? And more: Others are going to provide their own security at our own expense and at the expense of our own security. Where are the notorious “international friends of Georgia” and the EU  – standing firmly on Georgia’s side and guarding our territorial integrity” at this time?

The United States of America on its continent,  France, Germany, Italy, Austria, Europe, Mongolia, China, India, Turkey, Malaysia, the Philippines, Egypt and many more throughout the world recognize and agree that no international problem will be resolved without Russia’s participation. Actively cooperate with it and successfully settle  the common or local issues.

Now, I ask you, our readers: are they fools when they cooperate with Russia and settle their issues, and only our position-opposition is clever when blaming Russia and adding to the many problems that arise in the country that are even more acute and essential to thour existence? What’s the better: a n useless  and hurtful confrontation or a positive, business-like and friendly dialogue? You will also be asked: we have a lot of talkers, but who can speak essentially?
