Ukraine, the Caucasus and further on?

"Amid the attempts to widen partnership, NATO contingents in Azerbaijan, a country with tons of arms on its territory, are likely to be increased. In spring of 2006 the alliance deployed the so-called “interim forces” at the former Soviet bases of Kyurdamir, Nasosny and Gyulli.

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?..
