I hate the Communist Party chapter 147
If you were told to refer to the country that is most distant from the word mediation in this world, nine out of ten would probably speak of a country called the Russian Empire.
The ridiculous saying that “if there is anything the other person wants, clench your fist and shake that fist in front of you” is the basic diplomatic ideology of the Russian Empire, it clearly shows how the Russian Empire looks to other countries.
It is said that the tendency has diminished from the time Nikolai II, who is now in the tsar’s position, takes the lead, but the image created over the decades could not change in just a few years.
This was even more so because Russia has a strong perception that Europeans are looking for a chance to explore in a far-off frozen land that Europeans can’t get close to.
“This is ridiculous! Even if they haven’t signed a defense agreement with France, Russia is the one who doesn’t trust, and even if they’re allied with France, they’re going to mediate! This is a suggestion not worth hearing!”
In fact, it was Germany who first betrayed the good relationship between Germany and Russia, but that didn’t really matter.
There was one more reason why it was difficult for Wilhelm II to accept Russian arbitration.
This is because he unilaterally abolished the Reassurance Treaty, a non-aggression agreement, which can be said to have been a thin link between Russia and Germany even after the triad was broken.
Even after he expelled Bismarck, he tried to continue the proposition of making France bully in Europe, which is his diplomatic principle, but the proposition of getting along with Russia could be said to be the fault of the emperor.
“Why is Russia said to be in arbitration? Why are you trying to do something you wouldn’t normally do, just to be ready with us to crush Germany on both sides? Do you mean Russia wants me to be the second UK?”
Germany had a negative reaction to Russia’s coming out, so if you look at it simply, you might have thought that France, an ally, would have a positive reaction, but the French reaction was also lukewarm.
No, in a way, it could be said that I felt a sense of rejection comparable to that of Germany.
What is mediation? It was not a direct dialogue between the parties, but an act of having to pay the so-called brokerage fee as the dialogue proceeded including a third party called the mediator.
“Has Russia already forgotten where the money for building railroads, importing machinery, setting up factories, etc. comes from? We all know that the goods came from the loans provided by our French, but are you saying that you are now trying to rip off the brokerage fees?”
As one of France’s efforts to sign a defense treaty with Russia was the provision of a huge amount of loans, it was a suspicion of whether Russia regards us as mere waterlords and wallets, not allies.
As such, it was the emergence of a broker who did not receive a good response from both sides, but Russia, who just entered the business, had something to say to both countries.
* * *
Some may say.
The coming day when Russia shouts mediation instead of war is a strange thing than when Union Jack in London was trampled and the bandit up.
Someone who looked at the newspaper article might have a suspicion, ‘Isn’t he seeing useless because he drinks too much yesterday?’ Others may say that the Russian tsar must have opium.
“Your Majesty, as you said, we have revealed our intention to mediate to both sides… … .”
It was Stolipin who stood by my side on behalf of the Foreign Minister Ger in Vienna, and Vitte, who was working in the War Department to prepare a total mobilization order that would be issued if things went wrong.
Even compared to the two, he couldn’t be said to lack abilities, but he still had an inexperienced appearance in hiding his emotions.
It was because the end of his words was blurred, and at the same time, from his facial expressions, enough emotions to understand what he was thinking were flowing.
“Both countries will see us as crazy. Isn’t that right?”
“… … Yes.”
After the war is over, the country most hated is said to be “neutral”, not the two countries that fought with them or the allies that fought with them.
The winning side thinks that if the side that declared neutrality joined them, the fight could end with less damage, and the defeated side thinks that if the neutral country had fought with them, it might have won.
And what we were going to do now was to declare neutrality in this very chaotic crucible.
In fact, it wasn’t neutral as long as we signed a defense treaty with France, but it could feel that way to say that we would create a bargaining place instead of preparing for war.
If so, why did you make this unwisely seemingly unwise choice, and the reasons for that could be largely divided into two.
“You seem to think this choice is going in a bad direction.”
“To be honest, yes. Yes, Your Majesty. Even if we, Russia, originally did not have a high degree of credibility in the diplomatic negotiations, I think this act has a high possibility of losing the trust that was there.”
Stolipin’s words could also be seen as representing the views of officials, including the Russian Foreign Ministry.
“Yes, you can. Starting with Peter the Great, it could blow away the efforts of the elite who spent so much time looking for an alliance in Europe. The diplomatic trust that Napoleon had been put into the reef through the War of the Great Nations, and the countless blood that he paid for it, could be lost in this event. But I do.”
I paused for a moment. This is because the story we will talk about from now on was a very sensitive topic.
In a way, it can be said that the things I have been doing since the days of the Crown Prince were meaningless.
“If war breaks out right now and we advance to the Prussian and Galician fronts in accordance with a treaty with France, how much fighting power would we be able to maintain? How much is the transport capacity to carry soldiers to the front? Even if the soldiers hit the second shot, do they have a month’s worth of ammunition or ammunition? I can bet if the war unfolds in a situation like this one, we’ll only have to hope that the number of bullets and shells our opponents have less than the number of our soldiers.”
This meant that Russia’s chronic problems, lack of industrial power and poor transportation, were still not resolved.
From the days of the Crown Prince to the Russian conglomerates, as well as attracting foreign capital such as the United States, they tried to produce consumables such as ammunition for the Russian army and secure transport power represented by railroads. The wide country needed time.
“Of course, it doesn’t mean that the time up to now was meaningless. Until three years ago, more than half of the rifles that would be provided to Russian army soldiers were produced in foreign countries such as the United States, but now, up to 70% of annual needs can be produced domestically. However, despite this, the problem is that there are still more important war items such as shells imported from abroad. For the soldiers who will be face-to-face on the battlefield in the future, the beings who will be called gods will certainly be artillery, not God in the high heavens.”
If I knew this would happen, I would have prioritized localizing artillery and ammunition instead of providing new firearms to each infantry, but it seemed inevitable that such an error would occur unless I was also a god.
In addition, there could be reasons such as armored vehicles to break through the front lines, which have just entered the research stage, and research for the future in which the battlefield of mankind will expand to the sky for the first time.
Little bit, somehow I had to secure a little time.
“I think I know what your Majesty’s words mean. But, Your Majesty, if you ask for arbitration for this reason, wouldn’t it be pointless if both Germany and France disagree? Because they cannot understand our situation.”
“Yes, that’s right.”
Stolipin was right. Because what I’ve been talking about so far was the reason we couldn’t go into war right away.
If I said this to Germany and France, it was obvious that Germany would be shy, and before we went into the war properly, it was clear that we would rush to clean up France, and France said,’No, so you don’t even have soldiers.’ It must have come out to fulfill the treaty made with the field.
“So why don’t you give them a reason? Why can’t we go to war right now? Fortunately for us, aren’t there any examples where we could think that even a little fuss could turn the country upside down?”
“What do you think is the best export product of our Russian Empire?”
Instead of answering his question, I asked another question.
Then Stolipin was eager to get an answer to what he had just said, but he seemed to think for a moment to find the answer to my word.
“Maybe, isn’t it grain? As your Majesty just said, the industrial power of our Russian Empire is still lacking.”
His answer came from extremely reasonable reasons.
Still, if you think that more than 40% of the empire’s annual exports are grain, it could be considered the correct answer.
But in my opinion, Russia’s best exports weren’t goods or goods.
It was a man.
Those who voluntarily or unwillingly left the Russian Empire back in the past were the best exports we exported to Europe.
The revolutionaries, filled with the conviction to build a better world, were living and breathing not only in England but all over Europe.
There was no need for a massive uprising like last time in London.
You may think that the small embers found in the usual situation will not be much of a big deal, but the small risk that came to our eyes after that event in London was that we had to solve the internal problem before aiming the gun at the outside enemy. It was expected that it would be enough to instill awareness.
It was a fuse to ignite them if they had problems, but there was a way to fix this too.
Since the London Commune, there have been revolutionary Gafon and his colleagues who have gained a reputation that is insufficient even in the modifier of legend.
Even after I told the answer that I was a person, Stolipin was a face that couldn’t be felt.
The operation to export the populists to Europe was because he did not intervene.
“Our 20,000 troops in England could be enough bargaining cards. No matter how recently Germany has increased its naval power, it will not be able to defend all of the mainland coastline while preparing for a fleet battle with the French Navy.”
It was better for the least number of personnel to know this related information.
If it turned out that the imperial emperor had gifted populists to other monarchs, the title of the all-European public enemy would have been mys.
