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...

Quite Right Mr. President

Western mainstream media listen to President Vladimir Putin’s public statements only long enough to find a lever with which to distort his words. From Crimean reunification and MH17 to the origins of World War II, western propagandists — surely, we shouldn’t call them journalists — will fasten on to anything to ridicule or attack the Russian president...

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...

The bank holidays in Greece are no holiday at all

The history behind the familiar concept of the European “bank holiday” dates back to 1871, when the Bank Holidays Act was passed in the United Kingdom. It established four days each year when banks would be closed. Typically those days fell on major religious holidays. By the end of the nineteenth century, bank holidays had become a familiar part of life in the UK and Commonwealth countries - they were also considered unofficial national holidays in Ireland and then the custom spread to continental Europe in the twentieth century

Europe Suffocating Under Pressure of Refugee Flows: Is There a Way Out?

Europe is hit by waves of refugee flows coming from the Middle East and North Africa, especially Libya. Italy is hardest hit. The aggravation of problem was prompted by the UK-France aggression. Italy did not take part in the operation against Libya though Paris and London called on Italians to demonstrate “European solidarity” and join the combat...

China - US relations: main risks and contradictions

Washington's strategic pressure over Beijing assertiveness in the South China Sea, including measures such as US military reconnaissance activities and political and military coordination with China’s neighbours, adds additional threats in Asia Pacific in the broader context of bilateral ties discussed last week in Washington during the annual U.S.-China strategic and economic dialogue...

Tragic History of XX Century and Crisis Faced by Greece

The whole world is closely watching the situation unfolding in Greece. This country may become a trigger to start a chain reaction leading to the collapse of united Europe. A default on public debt (exceeding 320 billion euros) will be followed by a default of Greek bonds holders. Nobody can make a forecast to predict the economic and political consequences...

From Kosovo to Crimea — Tales of Referendums

Following the death of President Tito in 1980 the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia slid towards chaos. In the 1990s the plunge accelerated into civil war and one of the regions most affected was Kosovo from which Serbia withdrew after a NATO bomb and rocket offensive from 24 March to 11 June 1999. That blitz involved over 1,000 mainly American aircraft conducting some 38,000 airstrikes on Yugoslavia that killed approximately 500 civilians and destroyed much of the economic and social infrastructure of the region...

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...

Russia has enough gas for everyone

The June 26 speech by Alexey Miller, the chairman of the board of Gazprom, at the annual general meeting of shareholders proved to be a cold shower for all those who hoped that Russia would pull out of Europe’s gas markets. Despite the fact that much of his report was devoted to Gazprom’s operations in the Russian Far East, the data Miller provided confirmed that Russian gas will not be squeezed out of Europe’s energy balance. Moreover, in the coming years Russian gas supplies will continue to play a steadily larger role in ensuring European energy security...
