How Trump’s Trying To Win Back Turkey

How Trump’s Trying To Win Back Turkey

It should be evident to all objective observers by now that “America First” doesn’t equate to international isolationism or peace. Rather, just as the author predicted in his Sputnik analysis on Trump’s foreign policy right after his election, the 45th President is taking a firm stand against Iran and China, and even making overtures to […]

What Nikki Haley should know about annexed Crimea

The speech by the new US permanent representative to the UN Security Council, Nikki Haley, at a Security Council meeting on 3 February backed up the idea that the new administration policy on Crimea will be followed up.

Hybrid Wars 8. Malawi and Zambia

“Neo-Marxism” And “The New Middle East”

By Andrew KORYBKO (USA)

“Neo-Marxism” And “The New Middle East”

One of the most curious quirks of recent history is that self-proclaimed followers of the Cold War-era ideology of Marxism are on the upswing two and a half decades after the dissolution of the Soviet Union, and interestingly enough, they’re making on-the-ground progress in the Mideast of all places. This may come as a surprise […]

Hybrid Wars 8. Lots of trouble to Tanzania

The last of the five traditional East African Community (EAC) countries to analyze in this research is Tanzania, the bloc’s stalwart southeastern member.

Is India menaced by Russia’s apparent partnership with Pakistan?

The Russian news agency Sputnik has featured a commentary by Moscow-based expert, Andrew Korybko signalling an imminent leap forward in the Kremlin’s strategy toward ties with Pakistan. Unsurprisingly, Sputnik claims that it has nothing to do with the opinions expressed in the commentary, which are the author’s personal opinion, but then, such things do not […]

Hybrid Wars 8. Is it high time for HW in the African Highlands?

Rwanda and Burundi straddle the African highlands in the central part of the continent, occupying an ultra-strategic position along the transregional border between East and Central Africa. Overpopulated, mostly agricultural, and plagued with a past of ethnic violence, these two similar neighboring states are bound to share an interrelated destiny due to their near-identical demographic […]

By Kristian GIRLING (UK)

The crisis for Christianity in the Middle East

Introduction Christianity currently faces an existential crisis in its place of origin which is seeing an exodus of Christian migrants in the face of persecution and substantial socio-economic decline.
