The West estimated Putin's behavior at Europe-Asia Summit in Milan as challenging and negligent. Indeed, everyone was expecting a "breakthrough," but Putin did not justify anyone's expectations. In dealing with Putin, Western officials allow insults, put Russia into line with worst enemies and do not hide the wish to destroy Russian statehood
Ukraine has moved off the top of the news lists, now occupied by Islamic State and Ebola Virus Disease. But what is going on? The news is far from perfect - Fascist parades, continuing attacks from Pro-Putsch Ukrainian Armed Forces, including a terrorist attack on a school. However, there are some positive signs.
During the last CIS summit in Minsk, an unpleasant incident occurred. The presidents of Moldova and Russia were about to have a verbal fight with each other, as many journalists assumed. The presidents were talking about the Association of Moldova with the EU and the introduction of Russia's sanctions in response
A group of 30 doctors and scientists published their findings on the website of the New England Journal of Medicine that the Ebola ravaging West Africa is a new strain of the disease and was not imported from Central Africa. Another interesting piece of information is that apparently someone had advance notice that there would be an Ebola outbreak
The Republic of Serbia is a key state in the Balkans. This is well understood both in the West and in Russia. Why would the consolidated pro-Western leadership of Serbia take an unprecedented step and invite Vladimir Putin to Belgrade to celebrate victory over fascism, given the fact that even one mentioning of victory annoys the USA?
In Russia, it is impossible to imagine that in America, they believe people on the say-so. A voter comes to the poll station and says that his name is, let's say, John Hopkins and that he resides at the following address. A poller would then verify the provided data and either admits the person to voting or says that there was a mistake
Europe demonstrates complete failure in diplomatic activities. European sanctions encourage Russia to cooperate more closely with China and India. Most likely, Putin's objective would be to explain that the Europeans acted to their own detriment, having succumbed to USA's pressure. The sanctions have not affected the American economy much
Tony Abbott, a former boxer, is known for his criticism of Russia. In August, he proposed to introduce tougher sanctions against Moscow. Abbot is also known for his attempts to blame Russia for the crash of the Malaysian Boeing 777 in Ukraine, even though the case has not been investigated still. Abbott's remarks are immature, a Russian diplomat...
The Kurdish problem was created at the end of WWI when the British and French colonialists rejected, at the Paris Peace Conference of 1919, the proposal for an independent Kurdistan and decided instead to disperse the Kurdish nation among Turkey, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Armenia and Azerbaijan, leaving the Kurds as the world's largest stateless minority
Turkey and Europe have witnessed violent protests of the Kurds who, according to Turkish and Western media, are extremely concerned about the activities of Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan in Syria. The West had been pedaling the creation of the Kurdish state with a view to finally solve the problem of Bashar al-Assad. Yet, Erdogan stood on the way
In Poland, Russophobia became a part of state ideology. Russophobia is a major indicator of the interpretation of current and historical events. This was not reality in Poland even in time of war, despite the fact that the threat from the Bolshevik Russia was real. Today, the Poles accept this point of view zealously
Let us examine what is (the meaning and size of) our Europe? Where, how and - very importantly - when is our Europe? For example, is the non-EU Europe the existent but invisible world, sort of the dark side of the moon? is this unionistic condominium the best of Europe, or Europe itself? Is the EU an authentic post-Westphalian conglomerate?
The paradoxical myth that we already live in a multipolar world has grown strongly in the last few years.
