Bidding on Kosovo? Out of the Question!

"According to available information, Russia’s western partners in the Contact group, primarily the United States and the United Kingdom are making an attempt to draw Moscow into auctioning-off of Kosovo and obtain its consent to recognise Kosovo’s independence from Serbia. The “small change“ card in this diplomatic auctioning-off is the list of the unrecognised republics of the former USSR – first and foremost the Transdniester Moldovian Republic, followed by Abkhazia and South Ossetia..."

Armageddon for Iran Cancelled?

"Events of the past two months drastically changed the situation around Iran and its nuclear programme in favour of Teheran... Iran has received a powerful international support also in the wake of the Hizb Allah victory in the Lebanese war and thanks to its active participation in the activities of the 14th Conference of Heads of States and Governments of Non-Aligment Movement, an umbrella organisation for 118 countries on the globe’s 5 continents... However, the peaceful phase of the nuclear war is not nearing its end, and the “hot” phase is still a threat. The sides are only taking a time-out to regroup forces, to form up new battle formations and to work out a new strategy..."

The Pontific, the Muslims and the Shadow of the Caliphate over the Crimea

"Ukrainian authorities are shy and inconsistent in their policies regarding the Crimean Tartars, thus inspiring them with hope. A stupid rationale of Tartars being helpful in the struggle “the orangists” are now waging with the anti-Kiev sentiment of the Russian Crimean population could lead to a distressing finale. The Crimea would depart from the Ukraine, joining Turkey, rather than Russia... It appears that Stalin had every right to punish Crimean Tartars according to the principle of common responsibility. Numerous evidence of the period of the German occupation of the Crimea show that the Nazis had no more terrible assistants than Tartars..."

The SOC Energy Club Gets Off to a Good Start

"Russia is evidently interested in taking part in the multilateral cooperation within the framework of the SOC Energy Club that would make it part of the process of diversification of export channels and decreasing price and political risks on global oil and gas markets. But not only this. We should speak about the establishment of not yet a global but a very powerful group of states forming a single self-supporting energy-related bloc..."

2007: Opening a New Page in the World’s History

"Many politicians and analysts are at present sure that the September 11, 2001 terrorist act opened a new page in the practices of international relations. The U.S has gone on a warpath, declaring priorities of its own security above those of the preservation of the universal political culture that had taken shape in the wake of World War II. The epoch of fair negotiations and compromise agreements is going down into history..."

Oil and New Games on the Global Board

"Serious analysts are confident that Washington has already begun preparing for a withdrawal from Iraq that should take place not later than 2007. However the way to do it is not clear... Mistakes can be made during the withdrawal of troops that can cost dear to America... In this connection the project of a large-scale re-mapping of “The Greater Middle East” (The Ralph Peters Plan) that has been made public in the United States, has caused much interest. The plan proposes to divide Iraq into three parts; the same is planned for Iran, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan. Turkey is to give up its eastern part to a would-be state of Kurdistan. Syria is to lose its maritime territories in favour of Lebanon, and so forth..."

European Gas Scare Not Unreasonable

"The risk of gas supply shortages seems to make Europeans look more realistically at the continent’s energy supplies situation and the role played in it by Russia and its gas monopoly. Russia, habitually seen as a donor of natural resources, begins to evolve into a desirable partner for Europe. European companies compete in offering Gazprom shares in their national energy infrastructures (which are worth nothing without the Russian gas)..."

“Russia Is Concentrating!”

"This imperative formula is permeated with proud confidence of Russia’s great future, is 150 years old. On September 2, 1856 the new foreign minister of Russia let this statement be known the world over. The country had just gone out of the hardest ordeal. Prince Aleksandr Gorchakov, Aleksandr Pushkin’s namesake and classmate at the Lyceum of Czarskoye Selo, was one of the builders of the invigorating empire..."

New Composition of UN Security Council, Prospects for 2015

On October 16 the United Nations General Assembly elected a new United Nations Security Council (UNSC). According to UN Charter, there are fifteen Council members - five permanent with 10 others elected. Half of non-permanent members are re-elected every year. Non-permanent members have no veto right but still possess considerable clout, especially when they join together. First, the United Nations Security Council is the main UN organ responsible for peace and international security. It can approve the use of force. Recently there were cases when non-permanent members hindered the passing of draft resolutions submitted by permanent UNSC members...
