The mention of the Cumans and Pechenegs, which allegedly handled Russia, Russian President Vladimir Putin April 8, diverted the attention of the citizens. This opinion on 11 April, the radio station “Echo of Moscow” expressed by Russian political scientist Stanislav Belkovsky.
“This performance is not just assessed. I would like to highlight the most important. I must say that Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin once again proved himself a brilliant PR man. Taking his speech with a moving quote from legendary lawyer Fyodor Plevako about Polovtsy and Pechenegs is all already know, so I’m not going to decipher (in the original are the Cumans, Pechenegs, Tartars and poles; it is clear that the Tatars and the poles Putin to mention could not, therefore, by process of elimination were left alone Cumans and Pechenegs) – he thereby completely diverted attention from the main point of his speech. Because of the Polovtsy and Pechenegs discussed everything, and what else besides said Putin had not discussed almost one,” – said the analyst.
According to him, the Kremlin said importantly, “real financial help for small and medium businesses and the citizens of Russia during the so-called quarantine will not.”
“Get out all by yourself. Yes, it’s in Japan dedicated $1 trillion to support the population and businesses for a period of quarantine. In Germany, €600 billion and There was $ 5 thousand individuals, loans in millions of euros at very favorable terms promised to the enterprises of small and medium-sized businesses, which, in fact, and keeps the economy. Vladimir Putin, the financial reserves of the country nor the people, nor to small and medium businesses do not give up. It was very articulate,” explained Belkovsky.
He noted that Putin “come from his basic life philosophy, according to which to give money to a Russian man in his hands – he had them cut in literal or figurative sense.”
Putin said about the Cumans and Pechenegs April 8 at the selector meeting devoted to coronavirus. “Our country is repeatedly passed through serious tests: the Pechenegs film, and Cumans – all handled Russia. And we will defeat this infection coronavirus” he said.
The raids of the nomadic tribes of the Pechenegs on the Kievan Rus stopped after 1036, the year when the Pecheneg troops were defeated near Kiev, the Kievan Prince Yaroslav. Polovtsian raids on Russia lasted approximately from the XI and the XIII century, when began the Mongol invasion.
The Russian government, in turn, became known as the Russian Empire in 1547, Russia in 1654. Grand Duchy of Moscow in XV century it became the centre of a unified Russian state actively began to develop in the middle of the XIII century.
