Putin’s revisionist history

A pundit noted that Putin’s knowledge of history and geopolitics and his ability to recall them was impressive to watch. -Tucker-Putin interview is but a public relations exercise used by the Russian president to please to the West, to sell formatted  image to the Americans. The first question that comes to mind is “which kind of history Putin is speaking about”? the answer to that question is Putin, a former KGB’s officer in East Germany was turned politician thanks to Boris Yeltsin, the man who transformed a global power, the USSR, into a mere US colony. As a mere politician whose job is to keep the power as long as possible, looking to please both to the anti communist West and the heirs of Gorbachev and Yeltsin, Putin is reciting only the Post Soviet revisionist and anti communist historiography and defamation of the real and genuine history of Russia from 1917 to 1991. In sum, Putin’s history is not the real history that occurred between 1917 and 1991 but ideological and political history, a revisionist history similar to the revisionist history rewritten by the West comparing Hitler to Stalin, hailed as the man who defeated Nazism and liberated the European continent from the yoke of a racist and bloody regime, was depicted as a monster and even making the USSR responsible for the outbreak of the WWII. When we come to the geopolitics, one can say Russia in the post Soviet era ceased to be a global major player having its word in the world politics because the dreamed goal of United states to crush the USSR has been realized without Colour revolution nor atomic bomb by luring and deceiving the naïve Gorbachev by vague promises comparable to the Minsk agreements in 2015, stratagem used by the West to buy time and to strengthen neo nazi in Kiev 10 years ago. The evidence that Russia post Soviet ceased to be a major player in global politics, NATO’s expansion eastwards since 2004 whose member states were passed from 16 to 30 in 2022 and since 32. The second evidence that post Soviet Russia became insignificant player in global politics and geopolitics is the numerous Colour revolutions fomented by the United states and its European proxies aimed at regime change in the ex Soviet republics. The third evidence that post Soviet Russia era ceased to play key role in geopolitics is the advent of neo nazi regime in Ukraine without any reaction from the current Russian leadership. If Russia today escaped the faith reserved to the ex Yugoslavia, Iraq, Syria and Libya, it is thanks to the atomic bomb whose first production in 1949 was ordered by Stalin, a dissuasive weapon serving as a deterrent and counterweight to the US Manhattan project planning to wipe out 76 Soviet major cities  following the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki on August 6 and 9, 1945. North Korea supported since its inception by the USSR learned the lesson by building and acquiring the atomic weapon as a powerful deterrent against US imperialism which was unfortunately not the case of ex-Yugoslavia, Iraq, Libya and Syria.
