The world Forum organized by Macron also is dated for celebrations. On the eve of World War I to mankind, as well as now, began to seem that it is capable to equip reasonably the world, and war seemed inconceivable. Whether repetition of history is possible? Georgy Bovt. Photo: Mikhail Fomichev/TASS World War I has ended on November 11 with signing of the Compiègne truce near Paris. The main celebrations in honor of the 100 anniversary of her termination take place in France. For participation in actions in Paris there have arrived heads of 80 states, including the Russian leader Vladimir Putin. What value has this event? Georgy Bovt:frantsuzsky the president Emmanuel Macron comments has given to celebrations extraordinary scope. Including, to strengthen own image which has reeled in the opinion of voters. His rating of approval has fallen up to 21%. He these days goes over the country in places of fights, attending different actions in 17 cities of France. The culmination of celebrations has taken place in Paris about the Triumphal arch with participation more than 60 leaders of the foreign states. And then the opening ceremony of a three-day Parisian forum of the world which purpose has declared unity of the governments, civil society and business around projects which help to fight against climate changes, to strengthen the WTO, to create structure of management of a world cyberspace and to resolve migration issues has followed. On the eve of World War I, by the way, too began to seem to mankind that it is capable reasonably, it is rational to equip the world. On celebrations in Paris have gathered the head of states both winners in World War I, and losers. Not less than 17 million people have died in that war. Following the results four empires have broken up at once: Russian, Ottoman, Austro-Hungarian and German. Russia could be among winners if for half a year before the Compiègne truce the Bolshevist government before threat of loss of the power hasn't made the separate Brest peace with Germans, having conceded on him huge territories of the country and even having agreed to pay reparations of Germany. Though I was one of the main slogans of Bolshevist revolution "For the world without annexations and contributions!". But other logic has prevailed: why to us the country and a victory if we can lose in her the power. In absolute figures of loss of Russia in that war, by all estimates, there were the highest among member countries. Though the exact number of losses has never been determined. The western sources give figure only of people killed in 1,7 million, most of the Russian historians estimate only real loss not less than three million. But even on even more appreciation considering the missing persons who were taken prisoner, died later of wounds and diseases, the general losses of the Russian army have made about a third of the mobilized structure. It much less, than in the years of World War II. In relation to the mobilized structure France had the highest level of losses just — three quarters of structure, approximately as at Romania. Serbia has about a half of recruits. At other member countries — too no more than a third of structure. In council
