Pretty much expected, but squealing from self-righteous West will be heard even in the neighboring galaxy.
Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree on Tuesday, allowing certain companies to disregard the votes of shareholders from so-called ‘unfriendly’ countries when making corporate decisions. The document, published online on a legal information portal, will apply to companies in the energy, mechanical engineering and trade sectors with annual revenue of more than 100 billion rubles ($1.46 billion). It will remain in force until the end of 2023. According to the new law, management of the companies will be able to make decisions without counting the votes of shareholders from ‘unfriendly’ countries. To qualify, however, the companies must meet a number of criteria. One of these is that other countries or international organizations must have imposed sanctions against the owners or beneficiaries of such companies. Another criterion is that foreign persons with ties to unfriendly states have interests of 50% or less in the authorized capital or shares in such companies. In case nationals from unfriendly states are members of a company’s management authority, other shareholders will have the right to pass a resolution without counting their votes, the document said.
Indeed, why some foreign national who is a shareholder of a strategic corporation have any voice in the corporation which is Russian by nature and main capital? Pretty reasonable, if you ask me. Obviously the West will not like it, but--too bad.
In related news--you cannot fix stupid, because, well, Dunning Kruger effect, you know. No matter how one, me, as an example, will try to explain to politician, especially with degree in art and "history", what real war and real war economy and resources' management are--useless, they simply do not have a tool kit to grasp it. How to reelect themselves--yes, they have this ability, how to run a superpower--no, not even close.
Ukraine’s defeat may lead to a Third World War, meaning Germany and other NATO countries must step up and send Kiev more weapons, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki claimed on Monday. Speaking in Berlin at a celebration of German politician Wolfgang Schauble’s 50-year career, Morawiecki insisted that Germany must allow the delivery of Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine. Poland and Finland have promised Kiev the tanks, but need formal German permission to actually hand them over. “Today Ukrainians are fighting not only for their freedom, but also in defense of Europe,” Morawiecki insisted. “I call on the German government to act decisively and deliver all types of weapons to Ukraine.” “The defeat of Ukraine may become a prelude to World War III, so today there is no reason to block support for Kiev and postpone matters indefinitely,” he added.
I assume that some people who know the score at least tried to explain to him what is the game and what are the numbers, but cretins from Western political beau monde and media still believe their own BS. My friend, Mike Krupa, sent me this thing--imbecile Duda with the smile on his face tells that Poland disarmed herself to arm Ukraine. What can I say--a complete and utter degeneracy of Western "elites" is complete and, as practice shows, it is not confined just to Poland. Far from it--the whole Europe now is a basket case economically, militarily and culturally. Again, how can you explain to some European bottom-feeder what REAL war time economy is? Impossible. Same goes to the US, but in the US due to its geopolitical weight there is at least some understanding of the issue, and many DO talk about it.
Now to our "friends" in UK. I am sure after graduating Sandhurst... ah, wait... that's The Guardian and their school of "advanced operational studies".
Well, British "expertise" and "experts" in modern warfare is the same thing as Kenya's national ice-hockey team. Nothing personal against fine and truly beautiful and dynamic African nation. I wonder, who those "experts" are and how they calculated this "about 100" number. I know they just pulled that out of their asses and most likely those "experts" are some creeps from The Guardian with Oxford degree in literature, but still--I would love to see how they arrived to this number. Why not 200, or 135, or 1,000 for that matter, with the latter being more realistic number for what's left of VSU to have any serious operational impact. But then again, I would love to see the Ukie so called Air Force sortie numbers, wink, wink, to support this.
Per Russian MoD as of today, January 17, 2023, Russian Armed Forces annihilated 7,549 Ukie and other NATO tanks and armored vehicles.
