Это какой-то позор...

Когда Франция на Берлинском конгрессе получает по итогу больше, чем Россия...
И это та Франция, которую Горчаков спасал в 1875-м....

The only other area that the Congress touched upon was Tunis, as it appeared that since the British had acquired the controlling shares of the Suez Canal in 1875, then Egypt would soon become part of the British Empire. The French were not too pleased with this prospect, especially since they helped finance the canal. So, "Bismarck ... apparently suggested to the English the possibility of squaring the French by leaving them a free hand in Tunis ... Waddington returned to Paris contented to have Tunis in his pocket."124 Though no formal arrangement was made at Berlin concerning Tunis, France was convinced that the area would soon be theirs. Since Tunis was to be assigned to France, this meant that the Italians' best hope of gaining something at Berlin came to naught.
At last, on July 13, 1878, with all of the delegates in full dress uniforms, the Treaty of Berlin was signed. Overall, the Congress of Berlin had achieved its goals. On a short term basis, the Congress had stopped an impending war between Russia and Great Britain. Also, the meeting had altered the unpopular Treaty of San Stefano, and thereby stopping Russia's attempt to decide the Eastern Question unilaterally.
In looking at the decisions made at Berlin, especially the division of Bulgaria, the Habsburg occupation of Bosnia-Herzegovina, limited gains by the Tsar and the Balkan states, combined with the English occupation of Cyprus, "The Congress of Berlin was humiliating and disastrous [for Russia]. It really appeared that Russia had fought a great and difficult war in order to secure advantages for Austria and England. "125 In short, "Russian diplomacy had nothing to show but the retrocession of Southern Bessarabia and the acquisition of a strip of Armenia in return for a costly campaign."126 These facts were reflected by the reception that the diplomats received at home.
