Soros as the Mirror of the US Politics in the Post-Soviet Space

"Ukraine is given a nearly central role in the plans of Obama's Administration to isolate Russia. Probably, the US will push for Ukraine's informal and unannounced NATO membership and will interact with Kyiv as a de facto NATO member. Special attention will be paid to building the US ideological influence in Ukraine. The US will, in particular, boost the support of various NGOs in the country..."

A Terror Deal?

"The world exclaimed in surprise when the provincial North West Frontier Province government in Pakistan with support from Islamabad signed a ‘Peace’ deal on 16 February 2009 with the pro-Taliban organisation Tehrik-e-Nifaaz Shariat Muhammadi (TNSF) known for its extremist ideology in establishing Nizam-e-Adal in the Malakand region of the province which includes the Swat valley once called Switzerland of Pakistan..."

China’s Defence White Paper and its Implications for Asia and Pacific

"It may not be mere fortuitous combination of events that on 20 January 2009 China released its 2008 defence white paper as the new US President was taking oath of office. The timing of projection of China as an emerging power hence adds to multiple significance not only for China - US relations but also for the world..."

USA Loses the War against Latin American Drug Cartels

"Staying at the baggage zone at the airport in Mexico City I was one of the passengers flying in from Venezuela who watched the local police drug unit catching a large cargo of drugs. Wearing black uniforms and masks, the agents rolled out of the baggage section not less than 40 quite sizeable identically-looking valises for all of us to see..."

Is Russia back to its old time foreign policy?

"A new round of talks on strategic 'offensive' (quotes will be explained later) reductions will begin just because an official statement was made on the issue. But it seems to be quite reasonable to ask why Russia should reduce its nukes at all, especially as a result of an agreement with a self-interested America? Do they have the same doubts in the Russian Foreign Ministry?.."

Military-economic confrontation in the Arctic

"If Soviet Russia was mainly preoccupied with threats coming from the West, today Moscow should expect difficulties in the North Pole. Since late 1990s US has been working hard to seize control over the planet's most unknown land, and, actually, its actions have not been strongly opposed by anyone. Washington's aim is to deploy its anti-missile elements as part of its North Pole-based nuclear threat..."

Are the Balkans One of Russia’s Foreign Policy Priorities?

"...Balkans foreign policy direction did not attract the attention of theoreticians and strategists of Russia’s foreign policies. Unless Moscow urgently identifies its interest in the Balkans with well-devised plans of regional policies for not just a year or so, but for five, ten or more years, we can forget about serenity and stability in this region for many years..."

Global Stability and Nuclear Arms

"If even at times of the gravest tension the two nuclear superpowers were able to avoid a direct conflict, no aggravation of tensions between Russia and the USA will not in the long term pose a real threat to either the world’s peace, or our states, naturally, given the qualitative systemic nuclear parity is preserved..."

Mafia in Georgia

"In summer of 2008, not long before a military conflict broke out in South Ossetia, tensions between two Georgian thieves of honor ( vory v zakone ), Tariel “Tariko” Oniani and Lashi “Rustavskyi Lasha” Shushanashvili were widely discussed in Russia..."

The Rusin Chord of the Ukrainian Crisis (II)

"Imposition of the US control over Ukrainian gas-pumping stations is impossible without US military presence in that country. What “orange-flower politicians” refer to as “Russia’s energy diktat” (the mechanism of acquisition of packages of shares of the gas transporting system) can be easily substituted for by “NATO’s regime of Ukraine’s occupation“..."

Russia, Austria to Expand Gas Cooperation

Despite the European Commission’s stern warnings, Russia’s share of European energy market will grow in the coming years. According to Bloomberg’s experts, gas exports to Turkey and the EU have reached 162.6 billion cubic meters (5.7 trillion cubic feet) this year, up from about 159 billion in 2015 and 161.5 billion (then record high) in 2013...
