Ukraine after the presidential elections: how to overcome economic crisis and social misery?

"One of the main tasks of the new Ukrainian president would be to push back the influence of the IMF by widening the field of national politics and to balance economic dependencies... Westernisation alone is not the correct answer as long as Western interests include the danger of splitting the country..."

US in Afghanistan: Hunting for Ghosts

"The anti-war mood in the US is rapidly gaining momentum — as of today, 52% of Americans want the US to withdraw from Afghanistan. The fact is no secret to the Talibs who therefore are feeling ever more confident in their pursuit of dominance over the country..."

The Iraq «Inquiry», a theatre of the absurd

"Why does the extermination of an entire culture cause not a ripple in our public discourse? The answer is obvious: we don’t have any kind of discourse with those who wield power. The Chilcot ‘Inquiry’ demonstrates this down to a tee. It’s brazen in its disregard for the reality of the crimes the British state has committed in Iraq and continues to commit in Afghanistan..."

Address by Russians of Ukraine

"It is more than twenty years since the issue of the Russian language in Ukraine has been a source of a growing public discord. The Russian language has been consistently and systematically repressed and ousted from education and culture, the state and public agencies, putting in practice the compulsory (exclusive) use of the Ukrainian language. The cases of direct or indirect language discrimination have deliberately been suppressed and have never been tried adequately in Ukrainian courts..."

Turkmenistan looks eastward

"The launch of a new gas pipe on December 14 to connect Turkmenistan and China became one of the key moments in a geopolitical game aimed to win new routes of exporting Central Asian oil and gas resources. The launching ceremony for the gas pipe took place at the Samandep field in Turkmenistan and was attended by Presidents Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov, Islam Karimov (Uzbekistan) and Nursultan Nazarbayev (Kazakhstan). The new gas pipe will be the first route to deliver the Turkmen gas (up to 40 bln cubic meters per year) to external markets bypassing Russia..."

The Fall of the Berlin Wall

"Germany still, twenty years on, cannot realize itself as a whole country. A spirit of arrogance so typical for the way the winners in the Cold War have been exploring geopolitical resources of the defeated countries now affects the integration of eastern Germans into the economy of their western compatriots..."

President Obama’s energy program was torpedoed ahead of a climate summit in Copenhagen

"The Obama administration environmental concerns are not shared by many Americans. According to a recent poll, only 57% of the respondents believe that the global warming is a solid, scientifically established, fact (last April, there were 71% of those). Only 1% of Americans considered climate change as a major problem for the country. The recent revelations that some environmental scientists deliberately exaggerated the threats of global warming have obviously damaged the public trust in climate change science..."

Reinventing the Partnership

"The summit level meeting between India and Russia has marked a decade this year with the three-day visit of Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to Russia... As the joint statement on 7 December made clear, both the countries enjoy special relationship and in this competitive world scenario the problem of terrorism, the changing dynamics in the AfPak region, the energy and other areas of economic cooperation are some of the important areas of common interest..."

The Revamping of the AfPak Strategy and Implications

"The US President Barack Obama on 1 December 2009 announced a ‘surge’ of troops in Afghanistan as a measure to further bolster his Afghanistan-Pakistan (AfPak) strategy unveiled in March 2009... Obama wants to increase the number of US troops by 30,000 (thus further adding to already stationed 71,000 US troops in the region)... The new plan envisages even luring the Taliban to join the political process by applying carrot and stick policy..."

Nabucco+Nord Stream+South Stream... and where is Ukraine's gas transit system?

"...Due to long-lasting gas conflicts both Kyiv and Moscow will face heavy losses... in contrast to the profit the two countries might receive if cooperated in gas industry together... it would be wiser to abandon political ambitions and hold the talks relying on purely economic aspects of the problem and taking into consideration each other`s energy needs..."

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?..
