Orthodox Priest Accepts the Challenge of the Ukrainian Security Service

"When it became known late at night on December 25 that the Ukrainian Security Service had searched the Exaltation of the Cross Cathedral in Uzhgorod, a Strategic Culture Foundation expert called the Cathedral's dean and Rusyn leader priest Dimitry Sidor to ask him a number of questions. The transcript of the conversation is presented below..."

Struggle for Self-Determination Escalates in Serbia

"The main reason why Tadic agreed to trade NIS is the ongoing financial crisis in Serbia and huge budget deficit in 2009... Of course, the game is not over. The West and its appointees in Belgrade will continue their attempts to disrupt the implementation of the energy treaty signed in Moscow. Now it’s up to President Tadic to decide whether he will have the nerve to make the right choice and accept Russia’s investment aid to help Serbia become a European state with strong economy..."

Russia is not an outsider

"After the US Senate followed the House of Representatives ratified a US-Indian nuclear cooperation deal, the situation has been developing in a way which may again put Russia in an awkward position-this time in terms of partnership with India. As they say, second thoughts are the best but if so, it may be too late for Russia. The problem is that Moscow could have long supported India’s position on nuclear weapons after it gained nuclear status and at the same time express a moderate attitude to the position of Pakistan. However, US has managed to leave Russia behind and become a more crucial partner for Delhi..."

Interlinking Drug Trafficking, Afghanistan and Terrorism

"The international terror discourse received a twist after the Russian Rossiskaya Gazeta in an interview published on 10 December 2008 traced the financer of the Mumbai terror attack in the last week of November 2008 to the international drug mafia don, Dawood Ibrahim. The Rossiskaya Gazeta quoting Victor Ivanov, director of Russia’s anti-narcotics service, made it amply clear that the super profits generated from drug trafficking in Afghanistan run by the Dawood gang, were utilised to fund the terrorist attack on the Indian commercial hub..."

Georgia, West and Russia in information war

"As the military confrontation in the Caucasus stopped after the tragedy in South Ossetia in early August, the information war between the opposing sides has only stirred up... Having analyzed the outcomes of the large-scale information confrontation over the Russia-Georgia conflict, we can say Russia was not ready to provide prompt reaction to Georgia’s propaganda due to the lack of necessary state support to the Russian media outlets..."

Russia in OPEC: A Step Towards Oil Market Reform

"Russia will take part in the December 17 OPEC Summit in Algeria, which is widely expected to decide on major oil production cuts. The decision would be a natural reaction to the global oil price dip, and Russia is also ready to take a part of its output offline to put a floor under oil prices..."

Asia needs an India-Russia alliance

"While Moscow does not wish to see a continuation of US domination in Asia, its policies should not help result in the US getting replaced with another power... In order to create a balance of power within Asia, Moscow needs as close and comprehensive ties with India as have been crafted with China... Neither India nor Russia would suffer any damage to its core interests, because of the geopolitical rise of the other. A renewed India-Russia alliance would fit the core interests of both countries..."

How Much Can the EU Expand?

"It is not necessarily true that no news is good news. The same day foreign ministers of NATO countries made the final decision to postpone extending the NATO membership plan to Georgia and Ukraine the European Commission unveiled the Eastern Partnership Project. Currently the initiative proposed by Poland and Sweden in March, 2008 is materializing at a fast pace. No doubt, the motivation for the rush largely stems from the war in South Ossetia, and Europe is quite open about this aspect of the matter..."

NATO in Ukraine and Georgia: out the door, back through the window

Magnitogorsk in India: Recalling the Future

"It was in 1955, just a decade since the end of WWII. The Magnitogorsk steelworks had contributed a lot to the victory over fascism as 50% of the tanks and a third of the shells manufactured in the city were made of the steel produced by the plant. At that time people used to say that Magnitogorsk defeated the Rurh. In 1995 J. Nehru traveled across the USSR. He visited Moscow, Leningrad, Sverdlovsk, and Magnitogorsk..."

Obama’s Jihadist Actions and Beliefs Can No Longer be Ignored

There is no other explanation. After years of rumors that President Obama was indoctrinated into jihadist Islamist beliefs while attending a madrassa as a youth in Jakarta, Indonesia; while working with mujaheddin forces in Pakistan while a college student; and while a «community organizer» in Black Muslim-heavy south Chicago, the president's siding with the Islamist president of Turkey against primarily Russian Orthodox Russia means that Obama supports jihadism over moderation and Christianity in the Middle East and elsewhere...
