Punishment Of Innocents by Sanctions

In June 2015 some 1,200 people died from the effects of an extreme heatwave in Pakistan. Temperatures reached 44 degrees Centigrade (111o Fahrenheit) and the scenes of suffering were heart-rending. As CNN reported : «At the Jinnah Post Graduate Medical Centre in Sindh’s capital, Karachi, heat stroke victims are wheeled in daily, swelling the numbers well beyond capacity. The overwhelmed doctors and nurses do what they can... Family members tend to many of the patients, wiping their brows with sponges and keeping them cool with wet, grimy towels... At the Edhi morgue, the largest still operating in Karachi, the picture is even more dismal... Daily power outages mean the cold storage unit that houses bodies is hot and sticky. The dead, it seems, are denied the dignity they deserve»...

Greece Faces New Kind of Coup

According to the Financial Times, Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras sent a letter to the three major money lenders saying he is ready to accept almost all the conditions proposed by the country’s international creditors at the weekend, marking the latest attempt to keep Greece in the eurozone. The Prime Minister said he would accept all of the terms proposed with just minor exceptions. He agreed to the changes in the country’s value added tax system but asked to keep a special 30 percent discount for the Greek islands untouched...

Ukraine’s Gas Transmission System: Problems and Prospects

It is widely believed that the Ukrainian gas transmission system has the greatest capacity in the world to make the owner a full-blown global actor. It’s partially true if one forgets that the system is supplied with Russian gas extracted many thousands of miles away from the Ukrainian border to be transported through long-distance routes...

Saudi Arabia and Russia: new contacts

The upcoming visit to Russia by the king of Saudi Arabia, Salman bin Abdulaziz, could signify a milestone in the expanding relationship between the two countries. Relations between Russia and Saudi Arabia go back almost 90 years. The Soviet Union was one of the first countries to recognize the independence of the Saudi government and to establish diplomatic relations with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA), which was founded in 1926. The first ambassador the Soviet Union sent to Riyadh was Karim Khakimov, a prominent Soviet diplomat, scholar of the Orient, and public political figure...

St. Petersburg Economic Forum and EU Bitter Predicament

The St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF) has kicked off on June 18 against the background of economic woes faced by Europe. While being focused on anti-Russia punitive measures, the EU is losing control over European economy. President Donald Tusk convenes a Euro Summit on Greece Monday, June 22. He said the failure of EU finance ministers on Thursday, June 18, evening to agree a deal to release desperately needed bailout aid meant it was now time to «urgently discuss» the Greek crisis «at the highest political level»...

The story of BlackRock, a modest participant at the Bilderberg conference

When it comes to meetings that determine the trajectory of global development, the first half of June was a busy time. The G7 Summit was held in Bavaria, and the Bilderberg Club conducted its annual meeting next door in Austria on June 14. Many of the participants in that club’s meetings carry more weight than the presidents and prime ministers from the Group of Seven. We know that each year, the presidents and chairmen of the boards of directors of banks and corporations with impressive brand names like JPMorgan, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Deutsche Bank, Lizard, Banco Santander, HSBC, Royal Dutch Shell, British Petroleum, Alcoa, Google, etc. all meet as part of that club. Those brands are household names, and there is no denying the economic and political influence these banks and corporations wield all over the world...

Printing Press: Kiev’s Last Hope

Yury Lutsenko, an MP and the leader of Bloc of Petro Poroshenko party, reported that the Ukraine’s National Bank started the printing press. Allegedly it went ahead after Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk gave his approval. Few people paid attention to this information. Soon Yulia Timoshenko confirmed the news (she is an opposition leader). She said the uncontrolled emission without back-up should be stopped. In January the emission rate was 31billion hryvnias...

Kiev Holds Talks With International Money Lenders: This Month is Decisive

Time is running out for both parties to reach an agreement as a June 15 – the International Monetary Fund (IMF) deadline for the restructuring approaches. Ukraine is to restructure the $40 billion bailout. It must meet the mid-June deadline by which it must find a way to save $15 billion (13.7 billion euros) over four years...

Swiss corruption investigators have pronounced their verdict on Ukraine (I)

In May 2015, the Global Studies Institute of the University of Geneva published a major study on the state of corruption in Ukraine. They worked on this 180-page document from September 2013 until January 2014, based on material from previous years, and it is in many respects already outdated because of the drastically altered political situation in the country after the overthrow of the government. However, the study’s authors worked hard to identify the reasons why Ukraine has become the utterly corrupt state that it is today, and the investigators also looked into the history of how corrupt ties have developed in Ukrainian society...

NSA has become a rogue elephant

The National Security Agency, which has billed itself as merely an agency that collects and analyzes foreign signals intelligence and seeks to protect U.S. communications and computer networks from surveillance, has embarked on missions that take it into the territory of lawlessness and rogue operations.
