New Cold War
From the beginning of the 20th century, the Anglo-Saxons considered the USSR and then Russia as their principal enemy. Persuaded that Moscow was attempting to invade all of Europe after the defeat of the 3rd Reich, they prolonged World War II with the intention of undermining the Soviets, bombed German cities to ensure that the Red Army would not benefit and dropped two nuclear bombs on the Japanese population to dissuade Stalin from using his military advantage. In 1949, they founded NATO and transformed the division of Europe into two zones of occupation in a Cold War that ended only when the USSR disappeared.
Recently, confronted with the unexpected reconsolidation of the Russian state, the Anglo-Saxons have returned to their initial strategy. The continuity of their anti-Russian policy is clearly visible in the figure of Zbignew Brzezinski, the former National Security Advisor to Democratic president Jimmy Carter, who moved over to the Republican side and then returned to the Democratic Party to ensure the election of his student, Barack Obama. Architect in the 1970’s of both the unconditional support for the Shah of Iran and the fomenting of the now decades-long Afghan war, he favors today a rapprochement with the Islamic regime in Iran and the expansion of the war against Pakistan.
Moscow, which succeeded in defeating the Islamic Emirate of Itchkeria (Chechnya) and halting Georgian aggression in South Ossetia, found itself trapped by the Ukraine during the "gas wars" of 2005-2010. The strategy of the New Cold War is identical to its antecedent. The Atlanticist press with no imagination dully applies the same cliches to Russia today that it once used against the USSR although the situation today is critically different. London, that once sheltered dissidents, has become the refuge of fleeing mafia oligarchs. The Pentagon is deploying a supposed anti-missile shield just as it once did Pershing II’s. NATO has expanded east and is opening new bases in the north to encircle, again, its traditional enemy.
We are lodging a resolute protest against the US authorities’ actions with regard to Inga Yumasheva, deputy of the State Duma of the Russian Federation’s Federal Assembly, who was detained for questioning by the FBI agents at New York Airport on October 4. This is yet another hostile action against Russia and its representatives, an action that is clearly aimed at aggravating still further the atmosphere of Russian-US relations.
One might ask whether this happened because (...)
European Parliament resolution of 19 September 2019 on the importance of European remembrance for the future of Europe (2019/2819(RSP))
(Text put to the vote by Michal Šimečka, Frédérique Ries, Ramona Strugariu, Katalin Cseh, Ondřej Kovařík, Vlad-Marius Botoş, Izaskun Bilbao Barandica, Jan-Christoph Oetjen and Christophe Grudler on behalf of the Renew Group, including the British Libe-Dem and the Irish Alliance.)
The European Parliament,
– having regard to the universal principles of human (...)
On August 2, six months after Washington initiated the withdrawal from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty signed by the USSR and the US in 1987, the treaty has been terminated for all parties: the US, Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Ukraine.
This means that a key treaty for establishing the regional and global security architecture no longer exists. Under the INF Treaty, the parties eliminated two classes of nuclear armaments: land-based intermediate-range and shorter range (...)
On August 2, the United States completed the withdrawal from the INF Treaty. Accordingly, this instrument ceased to have effect.
Washington has committed a grave mistake. By launching a propaganda campaign based on deliberately misleading information on what was presented as violations of the INF Treaty by Russia, the United States intentionally plunged the Treaty into a crisis that was almost impossible to overcome. The cause is however clear: the United States wanted to free itself from (...)
Russian Myth: Russia’s demonstration of the 9M729 on January 23, 2019, proved that the system is INF Treaty compliant and showed that Russia is being transparent.
Fact: Russia’s so-called “demonstration” on January 23, 2019, of what it claimed was the 9M729 launcher and canister did not change the fact that the system is a violation of the INF Treaty, because it has been flight-tested to distances prohibited under the treaty. The United States and most of our NATO Allies did not attend this (...)
We have noted the July 18, 2019 statement at the European Parliament by European Commissioner for Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Management Christos Stylianides on behalf of the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy. We perceive his assessments of the human rights situation in Russia with an emphasis on the Ukrainian “political prisoners” as biased and aiming to play into the hands of those EU political forces that are interested in further demonising (...)
Five years ago, on July 17, 2014, Malaysia Airlines ‘Boeing’, a civilian aircraft operating flight МН17 from Amsterdam to Kuala-Lumpur, crashed in eastern Ukraine. All 298 people on board died.
Unfortunately, this tragedy became a tool in a dirty political game. Within only hours, if not minutes, after the crash, as if prompted by someone, media and then Western political leaders launched a salvo of accusations against Russia for the killing of innocent people. Two investigations were opened (...)
Manlio Dinucci writes about Vladimir Putin’s journey to Rome. There was nothing new compared with other visits to the countries of the EU, except for the rhetorical split by Giuseppe Conte’s government – Conté presents himself as a « sovereignist », while he obeys the desiderata of NATO, as the other countries do.
United States Agency for International Development Administrator Mark Green’s speech in Washington, D.C. sounded as if coming from the past – from the Cold War era . He presented the Countering Malign Kremlin Influence Development Framework designed by his agency, which is part of the US Department of State. The very name of the Framework testifies to the fact that the USAID is not working to establish an atmosphere of cooperation on the planet and that in fact it is a tool of ideological (...)
Tom, thank you for those kind words. A special thank you to the Community of Democracies for co-hosting this event today. Ladies and gentlemen, I am truly honored to join you today. Especially in a place named for a man who played such a tremendous role in Transatlantic history. George Marshall’s wartime contributions helped secure victory. His postwar contributions secured a lasting peace, and the birth of the modern Transatlantic alliance. USAID actually traces its roots back to (...)
The statements made by the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) at a news conference on June 19 about the alleged involvement of Russian servicemen in the Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 crash were utterly regrettable. The Russian Federation once again finds itself the target of completely unfounded accusations intended to discredit it in the eyes of the international community.
As was the case at its previous news conferences, the JIT did not produce a single shred of concrete evidence to back up (...)
The conclusions of the latest confidential report by the Rand Corporation were recently made public in a « Brief ». They explain how to wage a new Cold War against Russia. Certain recommendations have already been implemented, but this systemic exposure enables us to understand their true objective.
The Pentagon has decided to install medium-range nuclear missiles in Europe, which would turn this territory into a battle-field in case of a war between the two Great Powers. It’s no surprise that NATO and the European Union have approved the suicide of the European nations.
We regret to say that the US news and opinion website, The Daily Beast, has again told lies to its readers by writing that Maria Butina, who was arrested in Washington last summer, “had the Kremlin’s blessing” to influence US politics. After the FBI forced Maria to incriminate herself by creating abnormal prison conditions for her and threatening with a harsh sentence, these masters of fake news once again posted allegations about Russian interference.
The conclusions pointing to this alleged (...)
