Ukraine-Imposed Sanctions to Hurt Europe

The Ukraine's parliament has passed legislation that would allow the government to impose sanctions on Russia. It provides for sanctions against 172 individuals and 65 entities in Russia and other countries for supporting and financing «terrorism» in Ukraine. President Poroshenko has not signed it into law as yet, but the transit of Russian gas to Europe through the territory of Ukraine is in jeopardy... It may make the European Union want to get rid of unmanageable transiter and finally approve the construction South Stream going around the Ukraine’s territory. The situation puts into doubt the expediency of the EU Third Energy Package which actually bans Russia from using the existing pipelines while other suppliers have reduced capacity for filling the pipes...

On Threshold of New World System

Europe was really shocked by the sanctions Russia introduced in retaliation to the punitive actions imposed by the European Union, the United States and some other states. It’s not only the psychological effect defined by Estonian Minister of Foreign Affairs Urmas Paet as, «Today only the United States and the European Union have a right to punish bad boys, and Russia does not have such a right». The real cause is gloomy outlook for many EU members as a result of Moscow’s reaction... Europeans have really hurt themselves. They have launched the process of restructuration to affect an entire segment of world economy and voluntarily ceded positions to Asian and South American competitors with vibrant economies...

Ukraine Crisis Continues

...In the 23 years since the collapse of the Soviet Union, many Russians have been of the opinion that Washington, not the Soviet government, was the party to be trusted in the Cold War. What the Russian government has learned recently is that Washington cannot be trusted and that the Soviet government’s suspicions of the West were very well founded. Kiev’s military assault on eastern and southern Ukraine is not going to stop because Europeans finally see the light and object. Europeans not only stood aside for 13 years while Washington bombed civilians in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Pakistan, Yemen, and organized outside forces to attack Syrians, while isolating Iran for military attack, but also actively participated in the attacks. Europe has stood aside while Israel has massacred Palestinians on numerous occasions. For Russia to rely on Europe’s moral conscience is to rely on something that does not exist...

Europe: Falling Victim to US Pressure

It’s evident that the European Union is not ready for this turn of events. Instead of bowing to Western sanctions Russia responds in kind imposing the sanctions of its own. Only now Europeans appear to understand that the economies of Russia and the European Union are closely intertwined and that obediently dancing to the tune of the United States leads nowhere... Finally, the United Stated exerted pressure to make Europe impose sanctions against Russia. It will result in further schism inside the European Union which is had been divided enough even before the sanctions were introduced.

The European Union and the Trade War with Russia (III)

...Opposition to the introduction of sanctions by Brussels against Russia will primarily arise in those countries in which Russia is relatively dominant in foreign trade compared to the US (there are 12 such countries in the EU). At the same time, Washington's political dominance in some of these countries will exacerbate the socio-political situation. Public opinion polls in Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, for example, show that the vast majority of respondents are opposed to their country's involvement in sanctions, and, since Brussels started going along with US sanctions, the percentage of respondents in favour of their country's withdrawal from the European Union has begun to rise.

Finland: Doomed Without Russia

...The EU leadership is testing the ground to see where it stands with Russia. That was the main purpose of Finish President Sauli Väinämö Niinistö’s visit to Russia. He met Russian President Vladimir Putin in Sochi on August 15. The talks could be seen as a cautious attempt of the European Union to ease tensions in the relations with Moscow... It would not be an exaggeration to say that this is a matter of survival for Finland. The country occupies a special place in the relations between the European Union and Moscow with 10% of Finish exports going to Russia. According to Russian Federation of food industry, Russia accounts for about 25% of Finland’s agricultural production exports... The energy sanctions planned by the West may hurt the Finish economy even more... About 70% of the energy consumed by Finland comes from Russia...

The European Union and the Trade War with Russia (II)

In speaking of the economic war started by the West against Russia, it has been pointed out that on the European front of this war, new disproportions leading to a significant asymmetry are inevitably emerging within the European Union. Only the foreign trade ‘heavyweights’ represented by a small group of European countries could inflict serious damage on Russia. The backbone of this group is made up of Germany, the Netherlands, Poland and Italy. But a Russian retaliation would cause, and is already starting to cause, the greatest damage to other EU member countries...

The European Union and the Trade War with Russia (I)

The issue of the trade and economic war between the West and Russia instigated by Washington has intensified in recent days. The United States is unable to conduct a trade and economic war against Russia by itself, since trade volumes between Russia and America are relatively modest. In 2013, US imports from Russia amounted to $11.2 billion, while exports from the US to Russia amounted to $16.5 billion. Accordingly, America’s share of Russian exports last year was 2.5 per cent, and its share of imports was 6.0 per cent. In 2013, the US ranked just 20th on the list of Russia’s trade partners. But the share of countries in the European Union, made up of 28 countries, last year reached 50 per cent of Russia’s foreign trade turnover. In other words, Washington is unable to unleash an economic war against Russia without its European allies...

EU ‘quietly’ lifts ban on supplying Kiev with weapons and technology – Russia

The European Union has “quietly” agreed to lift restrictions supplying Kiev with military technology and equipment which can be used for the “repression” in the country, the Russian Foreign Ministry said. "During a recent meeting of the Council of Europe in Brussels, leaders of EU member states agreed 'on the quiet' to remove restrictions on exports to Kiev of equipment that could be used for internal repression," the ministry said in a statement on its website. "Exports of military technologies and equipment were also allowed."

Media spies put all journalists in danger

The increasing tendency of the Central Intelligence Agency and other U.S. intelligence agencies to disregard previous prohibitions against the use of journalists as agents puts every legitimate reporter around the world in jeopardy. The CIA has a checkered past in the use of journalists as intelligence agents. The practice was common in the 1960s and early 70s but was banned by Presidents Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter. However, when President Ronald Reagan helped reignite the Cold War, the CIA again began using journalists as intelligence agents. The practice put a number of journalists in jeopardy, especially those taken captive by guerrillas groups during the Lebanese civil war. There is nothing to suggest any president since Reagan has discontinued the practice of using journalists as agents...
