“These people are not people we are used to… these people are Europeans.” Kiril Petkov, Bulgarian Prime Minister, Associated Press, March 1, 2022 In the history of accepting refugees, countries have shown more than an erratic streak. Universal human characteristics have often been overlooked in favour of the particular: race, […]

This should terrify those countries that are resisting the US’ ongoing reimposition of its declining unipolar hegemony but it might also backfire if they cooperate more closely together in accelerating the ongoing global systemic transition towards multipolarity so long as their leaders continue successfully resisting US pressure. There shouldn’t be […]
An introduction of Polish troops seems the most realistic of the existing options of quick assistance to Ukraine. If this happens, it would be a big victory for London and Washington in the short term, but the consequences of this in the long haul will be hard to predict. Just […]
Russia’s long-predicted invasion of Ukraine finally happened, but the reasons for it are widely misrepresented. Basic history is necessary in order to understand it. The Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline, from Russia, under the Baltic Sea, to Germany, was planned in order to enable greatly increased sales-volume of the lowest-cost […]
Someone asked me: Can you make sense out of the current Ukraine situation/stand-off? You indicated in an earlier note that you didn’t think Putin would invade Ukraine unless Ukraine invaded Donbass. So, what is going on right now? Why the massive Russian build-up on the borders (assuming the news isn’t […]
Today, the best kept secrets are quickly revealed. They do not spread for all that. However, the confidential letters from the United States and NATO to Russia have leaked and have been widely read. While the front stage is dominated by Nato’s bootstraps, the Western backstage is the scene of feverish organization of allied surveillance networks by their American and British overlords. For Washington and London are convinced that Russia will not attack them, but will try to divert their allies.
How warmongers are trying to influence the outcome of talks between Russia and NATO. While US State Department officials look for possible compromises with Moscow on European security (an issue that really is difficult for them since they need to save face), the Russophobe lobby from various institutions are actively […]
Being a “swing state” may have tactical advantages but when life gets tough and the tough gets going, there could be consequences. Turkey once faced such a moment of truth a hundred years ago. It faces a similar predicament today. At a meeting on Thursday in Ankara with the European […]
Russia and China have just written to the United States asking it to respect the United Nations Charter and the word it has given. This approach, devoid of any aggressiveness, calls into question not only the functioning of the UN, NATO and the European Union, but almost all the US advances since the dissolution of the USSR. It is obviously unacceptable to Washington. But the US hyper-power is not what it used to be. It will have to begin its withdrawal.
Coupled with the continued global economic uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, the result is that the EU will continue suffering from high prices and unreliable supplies so long as it refuses to pragmatically reach long-term supply agreements with Russia. President Putin recently expressed exasperation at the counterproductive policies being pushed by the […]
Blood-red. But that’s a banned fact. (It will be documented in what follows.) Here are the announced values (the “Guiding Principles”) of the European Green Party: “Environmental Responsibility” “Freedom through Self-Determination” “Extending Justice” “Diversity, an Indispensable Condition” “Non-Violence” “To sum it up, Sustainable Development” This “Charter of the European Greens” […]
Some of NATO’s EU members will lobby for their anti-Russian ‘deep state’ patron’s interests, but it’ll all come down to whatever the Biden Administration decides to do regarding the Kremlin’s ‘security equation’ proposal because America’s allies will be compelled to follow its lead since Russia was correct in describing them […]
