If US President Donald Trump is not just another Trojan horse of the Neocon concept of Pax Americana, there are real chances to get rid of the US imperialism in the nearest future and to establish international relations on a more democratic foundation.
The US didn’t anticipate being humiliated on the global stage after President Putin exposed the billions of dollars that American taxpayers invested in their country’s so-called “missile defense shield” as being useless against Russia
Almost everything coming from the mainstream media about the presidential elections in Russia takes the form of either direct propaganda aimed against Vladimir Putin or else a call to boycott the vote.

Russia’s growing military power is a solid guarantee of global peace as this power preserves and will preserve strategic parity and the balance of forces in the world, which, as is known, have been and remain a key factor of international security after WWII and up to the present day.
In 2014 following a self-determination referendum of the people of Crimea the Russian Federation declared reunification with the Crimean Peninsula which was illegitimately transfered to the Soviet Ukraine in 1954.

Trump appeared to be clear-headed and purposive about working with Putin to bring the Syria war to an end and to negotiate an inclusive settlement that brought enduring peace.
The international and domestic dimensions of Saudi Arabia’s grand strategic shifts are expected to have game-changing implications in altering the global dynamics of the New Cold War.
