Russia – Belarus: Many Years, No Progress

"Now that the West is developing and starting to implement the plans of a reorientation of the Belarus Republic towards euro-integration, it would be highly logical for Moscow to adopt a more definite politics with respect to Minsk. This politics should not be limited to brawls over gas prices and to disputes over the acquisition of the Beltransgaz Company. Rather, it should be a politics of a complex character that it has lacked so far, one incorporating cultural, political, and other aspects of the unification..."

The Asian Conundrum

"Currently, the economic growth in the leading Asian countries is getting transformed into a geopolitical expansion, which worries the US seriously. The US strategists find it particularly disquieting that, even hypothetically, a new predominant force might emerge in Asia. Hence the attempts to maintain the US influence in Asia at any cost..."

Kosovo and the West. Fighting Terrorism with Terrorists

"Nowadays, despite their past record as terrorists, former KLA military chiefs and the rank-of-file are again wanted by Washington and Brussels. They are needed to demonstrate the growing maturity of the Kosovo community and its readiness to agree to accept from the hands of the West powers its independence and the “democratic ideals”. Having started a full-fledged war in Iraq under the banner of combating terrorism and threatening Iran, the U.S. is simultaneously prepared to acknowledge the appearance in the centre of Europe of an Islamic state created on the blessing of Usama bin-Laden with Al Qaeda money and support from Iranian special services. That is what the U.S. foreign policy is".

Belarus, an Independent Country: a Potential Scenario

"In May, 2006 the Commission for International Religious Freedoms set up by the US Congress voiced a serious concern over the religious freedom in Belarus, including the country in the list comprising Iran, North Korea, Cuba, and China. Obviously, what Washington is really concerned about is not religion, but the political regime of Alexander Lukashenko and the politics of the Belarus Republic. There are no problems with the freedom of conscience in Belarus - simply, the Roman Catholic parishes do not proliferate in the Republic as rapidly as they do in the neighboring “orange” Ukraine..."

Pakistan: Between the Fate of a Frontline State and the Development Needs

"The image of the frontline state became associated with Pakistan during the period of the deployment of Soviet troops in the neighbouring Afghanistan. Currently the aggravating struggle for energy resources is again pushing Pakistan into the focal point of international controversy. To a large degree, stability in that country depends on the security of its control of resources, including natural gas, oil, coal, gold and copper, concentrated mainly in the troubled province of Baluchistan. In turn, the strategic significance of Baluchistan is stipulated by the situation in the port of Gwadar on the Makran shores of Arabian Sea, that controls the exit from the Gulf of Ormuz, and thus delivery of oil via the Persian Gulf..."

What Type of Russia Does Ukraine Need?

"What exactly can the answer be to this question essentially depends on whom and in what part of Ukraine or Ukrainians you ask. What are the values to which the executive and the legislative power, pro-authorities and independent elites, the opposition and business stick to nowadays? What is the attitude towards Russia in different parts of Ukraine? And who does the solo in this chorus of voices?"

Russia on the Way to the “Loose Geometry” of International Ties

"The liberation of the Russian state thinking from the ideology obsessions and deadlock foreign policy schemes of the previous two decades is the prerequisite for Russia’s working out its new strategy of foreign policies and for finding a “niche” of its own in the rapidly changing world. It is quite evident that the backbone of this new strategy will be the principled refusal to continue the one-sided orientation towards the West and a system-based comprehension of the rapidly changing world..."

Political Manipulations with the Price of Oil

The drop in oil prices that began at the same time as Islamic State (IS) attacks in Iraq and Syria is impossible to explain with economic factors. The world has long been used to the fact that the market has reacted to every war in the Middle East, where 47 per cent of the world’s ‘black gold’ reserves are concentrated, with a sharp jump in oil prices. That is what happened during the two wars in the Persian Gulf, and that is also what happened when the Americans began their ‘mission to restore democracy’ in Afghanistan. And speculation about a possible military conflict between the US and Iran was accompanied by the expectation of a jump in oil prices of up to $200 a barrel and higher. At present, everything has turned upside down, but for how long?..
