Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu visited Iran and India, while Federation Council Speaker Valentina Matviyenko paid a visit to Nicaragua. The officials discussed Russia's participation in the construction of a transatlantic channel of strategic importance. Russia's most recent agreements became a response to the challenges from the US
Russia's new sea-based cruise missiles reduce the military power of the United States on a vast geopolitical region from Warsaw to Kabul and from Rome to Baghdad. This is one of the reasons that made US President Obama call Russia one of the biggest threats to the world. Putin has prepared a very good surprise for our "American partners"
The West demonizes him, Russia idolizes him. The year 2014 started with the dazzling Winter Olympics in Sochi that Russia triumphantly won and closed with the collapse of the Russian ruble. Is there a way to explain that from more than seven billion people on Earth, the United States is afraid of only one - Vladimir Putin?
The Russian nuclear shield is the primary factor of nuclear deterrence. However, this deterrence does not guarantee safety, because we do not see a situation when we can push the button even for a retaliatory attack. The Americans pushed nuclear weapons into the background. What they do is they create a new strike force
Russia's turn to the East is not a plan of action under the sanctions of the West. Russia's most loyal allies are situated in the East - they are Vietnam and India. Russia's current activities in the east are not related to the events in Ukraine. Today, Russia's best choice is to diversify its foreign policy from the Euro-Atlantic area to the East
The West has declared a cold war on Russia. The ultimate goal of the United States of America is to destroy Russia. The Americans already consider plans about the neutralization of the nuclear potential of Russia. Plan A is to strike a blow that would behead Russia. Plan B is to destroy the launcher
Obama recently signed a bill to give $350 million to Kiev to kill civilians in SE Ukraine. Fortunately, Crimea is safe from the war Kiev,USA wanted to bring to her.

Russians starve against the backdrop of sanctions, they can not raise loans to buy something they need, so why haven't they rebelled against Putin yet? This is a question that many Western publications and bloggers ask in their articles and posts after Putin's address to the Federal Assembly last week
Russia's eastern vector of development takes more visible and clear outlines. After visiting China, President Putin paid a visit to Turkey. Russia should have stopped pulling the rope with the EU about the construction of the South Stream long ago. Russia should proceed from defensive to offensive position on the political field
The West imposes sanctions on us based on one simple thing. In their opinion, in 23 years, the Russian society has turned into a consumer society, which, in general, does not care where to live, what to believe, but the main question is how to consume. For consumer, there is no homeland, homeland for them is a place where they can consume
The West threw Ukraine into absolute chaos, but the US and the EU continue to put on a good face. Vladimir Putin sobers up the world community with his statements, but nobody dares to openly support the Russian president. Today, Putin is one of the leading politicians of the world. It goes about not ten or twenty, but three politicians
Putin is trying to show that putting pressure on him is useless. The president clearly indicated his intention to support the People's Republics of Donetsk and Luhansk.

It is believed that by the beginning of 1991, the USSR had about 20-22,000 units of tactical nuclear weapons. This impressive arsenal was the result of forty years of an intensive arms race. Noteworthy, it was not the "totalitarian" USSR that started the arms race, but the liberal and democratic USA
