Bulgaria: Obstacle on Way of South Stream

The people of Bulgaria face trials and tribulations. The country has been struggling against a political crisis since February 2013. And it seems to be everlasting; there is no light at the end of tunnel. The European Commission is trying to make Moscow renew gas deliveries to Ukraine in an attempt to find a «mutually acceptable temporary solution for the coming winter». At the same time the Commission blocks the construction of an alternative route to Europe going across the Bulgarian territory. The project is called South Stream. The idea has the support of leading European companies and the countries involved. Bulgaria has been chosen by the supranational structures in Brussels as an instrument of this, rather strange, policy of obstruction...

Why Is the U.S. Afraid of South Stream?

The West is continuing to twist the arms of Russia's partners in building the South Stream gas pipeline. Hot on the heels of the Bulgarian government, Serbia has announced that work will be suspended. Both countries cited the position of the European Commission. But EU energy commissioner Gunther Oettinger refuses to discuss the construction of South Stream in the format of a consultation with Russia, the project's main participant...

Oettinger's Gas Bluff

At a time when gas supplies to the European market from other suppliers are fall-ing, the advantages of collaboration with Russia have become obvious for Belgrade, for Sofia and for Athens. However, the European Commission refuses to admit the obvious. This follows, in part, from the most recent statement of EU Energy Commissioner Gunther Oettinger, who rushed to surround his support for the South Stream project with scandalous political conditions. In an interview with Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung, he stated that a «political decision» on the construction of the South Stream pipeline is not possible until Russia recognizes the government in Kiev. Oettinger provocatively urged Russian partners to «adhere to the practices of international law»...

World Energy: From the «Shale Revolution» to Healthy Pragmatism? (II)

The two-day international «EU-Russia Energy Dialogue» conference which took place May 29-30, the eighth such conference so far, was once again unable to overcome the stalemate between Moscow and Brussels in the field of energy. The leadership of the European Union still insists that Russia accede to the so-called «Third Energy Package»... In essence, this is a demand that Moscow agree to delegate part of its financial and economic powers in the energy field to Brussels, without having the possibility to influence the European Union's decision making...

Bulgaria: The Phenomenon of Self-Immolation

There is little more than a month left for the protest movement currently gathering momentum in Bulgaria to climax before the parliamentary elections set for 12 May take place. An outburst of public activity can also be expected the very next day... The phenomenon of self-immolation is completely new for Bulgaria. However, an epidemic of self-immolations and the glorification of its victims on the Internet played its role in the fervour of the Arab Spring in Tunisia and Egypt. As is well-known, the motive for self-destruction was included as point 158 by Gene Sharp back in 1973 – «Self-exposure to the elements (self-immolation, drowning etc.)»... – as a way to move «from a dictatorship to a democracy»...

South Stream Shapes European Energy Security, Nabucco Falls Behind

South Stream is an ambitious endeavor of Russia’s energy giant Gazprom to get direct access to the EU energy market. It is portrayed and criticized by some politicians in Europe as a «dangerous» gateway to a broader economic relationship with Moscow. Remarkably enough, Bulgaria, Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia and Hungary have one-by-one opted for the project...

Europe: Time for a Reappraisal of Values

Without any exaggeration, the events that have unfolded in the countries of the European Union following the global economic crisis can be called a humanitarian catastrophe. Not according to economic indicators, which remain high. The catastrophe for people living in the EU has been the collapse of the world they are used to, the destruction of a seemingly natural social partnership between state and society, society and capital. The scale of the decline in Europe's social standards is really quite impressive...

Bulgaria: Recent Events

Bulgaria is facing the wave of the largest mass protests in the last 16 years provoked by price hikes. So the resignation of Boyko Borisov government has been expected. It was this very government and big time players from Washington who made the events unfold this way... Perhaps Bulgaria doesn’t even realize it has become a country with limited sovereignty as a result of the United Sates diplomatic pressure...

The Islamic State – America’s Double-Edged Sword

Serious experts are now in little doubt that the US administration was the ‘midwife’ of the Islamic State (IS). Renowned Israeli analyst and former head of the ultra-secretive intelligence agency Nativ, Jacob Kedmi, says that the US is now trying to use the tactic of setting moderate Islam against radical Islam, which was «successfully employed in Russia». It is not turning out well for the US, however, considering that for the last three years the Americans have acted as allies of the IS in Syria, and before that were allies of al-Qaeda and the Taliban in Afghanistan... The war currently being carried out against the IS by the US Air Force is recognised to be for show and is more reminiscent of an arrangement of red flags, beyond which it is inadvisable to go...
