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»...

Ukraine’s Debt Burden as Europe’s Next Big Headache

On October 30 Russia, Ukraine and the European Commission signed a deal that will see Moscow resume vital supplies of gas to its ex-Soviet neighbor over the winter, as well as the transit to Europe... Will Ukraine carry out its commitments this time? Neither Moscow, nor Brussels could be sure of that. The document is signed by the Ukraine’s government which is to resign soon. Arseniy Yatsenyuk has chances to continue holding the position of Prime Minister. Not once he was responsible for Ukraine derailing the tripartite talks constantly changing its stance and putting forward unacceptable conditions...

Russia Knocks Out EU

The European Commission has formed a group to assess the losses inflicted by Russian food embargo. The overall damage could be 12 billion euros. The EU has only 400 million euros earmarked for compensation. Brussels obediently followed the US policy on Ukraine and received a sensitive retaliatory blow against its agricultural sector as a result. According to Ric Spooner, Chief Market Analyst for CMC Markets in Australia, the Russian ban on agricultural products from the European Union, Norway, the United States and Australia will knock out other markets’ prices while exporters will be looking for new markets. This is a tough situation for the European Union but it has to reap what it sows.

Europe Has No Substitute for Russian Energy Resources

In many ways, Serbian Prime Minister Aleksander Vucic’s two-day visit to Moscow this week was a breakthrough. To begin with, both sides finally managed to come to an agreement on all issues concerning Serbia’s involvement in the South Stream pipeline project. Serbia’s Prime Minister also emphasised an interest in developing a partnership with Russia, which he sees as a priority of his country’s foreign policy...

A Crisis of Faith within the European Union

The two-day EU summit in late June was marked by growing disagreements among members of that organization. Even the signing of the economic sections of EU association agreements with Ukraine, Georgia, and Moldova could not conceal this fact. It is entirely possible that by the time these documents take effect, the EU itself will have changed enormously, prompting a radically different approach toward, for example, the admission of many Balkan states...

Russia - EU: A Dubious Partnership Twenty Years Later

The signing of a Joint Political Declaration on Partnership and Cooperation between the Russian Federation and the European Union twenty years ago in Brussels had great significance for its time. This document laid the foundation for the further development of relations between Moscow and Brussels on key issues of European security, cooperation and development. In the following year, 1994, the parties signed a Partnership and Cooperation Agreement (PCA) which took force on December 1, 1997 and was planned to last for ten years. But the parties have not been able to sign a new document which could make Russia and the EU strategic partners for the past six years...

EU Goes East: Political Offer for Economic Colonisation

...In the case of six Eastern member states of the EaP the integration idea gives priority to the strong Western Global players over relatively week Eastern competitors... What can Kyiv expect from signing the Association Agreement with Brussels? 27 pages of the written agenda of the EU-Ukraine Cooperation Council in June 2013 make it evident: the preparations for the Association Agreement do not function at eye level, the text shows a clear submission of Ukraine’s whole legislation and a political, social and military adaption to EU’s guidelines... The chapter «Economic cooperation» shows that Brussels also wants to interfere in inner politics from financial to social affairs... In ordinary language: monetary policy is going to be controlled by the ECB, and social policy is submitted to the restrictive regime of austerity packages... Energy co-operation in Brussels’ words consists of two main points: abolishment of state subsidies for electricity and gas «to ensure full payments» and «integration of the united power system of the Ukraine into the Union of Central European electricity networks»... These are the corner pillars of the EU enlargement project, interfering in all possible spheres of national and local politics and economics...

What Lies Behind the Idea of the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement

Europe has no serious economic interest in an association agreement with Ukraine, and for Ukraine the economic consequences of liberalizing trade with the EU are more than dubious... The political element permeates the entire history of the negotiations for an agreement between the EU and Ukraine... Signing an EU - Ukraine association agreement is viewed as a guarantee that Ukraine will not participate in any integration processes in the post-Soviet area...

Discord Mounting in the European Union (II)

Right on time for the conflicts in the European Union at the center of which Germany has found itself comes an IMF report unprecedented in its self-criticism. This report acknowledges the organization's serious mistakes in developing and implementing the anti-crisis program for Greece. In particular, the report documents the unforeseen consequences for the economy of reducing state expenditures when the recession was already underway, excess optimism in assessing the chances of returning the country to the debt market, and delays in restructuring the state debt using private creditors...

EU: «Deposits Trimming» and Geopolitical Model

The European Union has launched a legal procedure to create a foundation for actions aimed at «cutting extra weight» from large deposits in the banks of the Union’s members... For the first time in the Eurozone history the investors are divided into the «reliable» and «risky» groups, and the last ones will have to face confiscations. The cutting away from deposits will be applied only to the troubled banks. As the experience of Greece, Cyprus, and even Spain and Italy shows, no banks are protected from trouble...

70-th Anniversary of «The Bomb's» Use Against Civilians

It has been 70 years since the United States became the only nation in history that deployed two atomic «weapons of mass destruction» against civilian populations. On August 6, 1945, a B-29 known as the Enola Gay took off from Tinian island, north of Guam. After flying six hours to the main Japanese island of Honshu, pilot Paul Tibbets flew his aircraft over the city of Hiroshima released «Little Boy», an atomic bomb with the explosive power of 16 kilotons of TNT...
