Western-backed Kiev Regime Burying the Truth over Atrocities?

The grim discovery of mass graves in southeastern Ukraine this week implicates the Kiev regime in further war crimes. At least three such burial sites have been uncovered in recent days since the withdrawal of Kiev’s military forces from the areas under its control, as part of a belated ceasefire deal... Officials of the breakaway Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) and local residents who returned to the village have accused the Ukrainian National Guard and associated pro-Kiev militia of involvement in the crimes... Russia’s foreign ministry has called for an international probe into what appears to be gross human rights violations committed by Kiev’s military units against civilians. Moscow wants the United Nations and the European Council to send human rights representatives to assess the findings...

Scotland Kicks off Process of Europe’s Fragmentation

The Scottish referendum results show that something is rotten in the state of the United Kingdom. The event has given an impetus to the separatist aspirations in Ulster, Wales and the Island of Maine and even in the tin-rich Cornwall County believed to be the homeland of legendary king Arthur. The idea of getting more preferences from London without offering anything in return has become popular. The referendum has changed Scotland. The turnout was great with people of all walks of life and ages going to polls... In Europe separatists are gaining strength in Catalonia, Flandria (Belgium), Corsica (France), Northern Italy and Bavaria (Germany). They construe the referendum results as a victory of independent Scotland because it has asserted its right to self-determination...

Currency Swaps in the Modern world. The Birth of the Global Currency Cartel (I)

Currency swaps (currency exchange transactions) have become a hot topic in today’s media. Just about every month we find out that some country has signed a currency swap agreement with some other country, and there are already dozens of these agreements in the world... At present, more is said about currency swaps as a means of strengthening the national currencies of countries on the periphery of global capitalism, so as a means of fighting the hegemony of the dollar and the dictatorship of the US in world trade and international finance... We will begin our analysis, however, with currency swaps in a narrow group of select countries belonging to the so-called ‘golden billion’...

European Union and Ukraine: Geopolitical Ambitions Going Too Far

The European Union is reluctant to recognize the fact that the decision by former President Yanukovych to postpone the conclusion of the association agreement was made in view of grave problems. That’s what influenced his decision. These problems plunged the country with the population of 45 million into chaos provoking the ongoing civil war and exacerbating the situation in Europe as a whole. Is not an extremely high price to pay for exorbitant ambitions of European politicians?

Europe Ready to Suffer from Cold to Please US

The Ukraine-Russia gas conflicts have a history. Usually the differences have been narrowed down or resolved before the threat of collapse in Europe became imminent. Now there is a big chance Europe will be left without heating in the coming winter

The Purpose of the Sanctions Is to Breakup Relations Between Europe and Russia

The new sanctions announced by Washington and Europe don’t seem to make much sense. I would be surprised if Russian oil and military industries were dependent on European capital markets in a meaningful way. The Russian companies should be able to secure adequate financing from Russian Banks or from the Russian government. If foreign loans are needed, Russia can borrow from China. If critical Russian industries are dependent on European capital markets, the sanctions will help Russia by forcing an end to this debilitating dependence. Russia should not be dependent on the West in any way...

«Welcome for Scottish Will Stand Being True to the Scottish Flag…»

The Scottish independence referendum is slated for September 18. The issue was initiated in 2007 by Alex Salmond, the leader of the Scottish National Party. Back then his party received majority in the Scottish parliament to make him First Minister of Scotland. In May 2011 he announced the intention to hold a referendum on independence. He used ideology, history and legal grounds to perfectly substantiate the idea. London could not prevent the plebiscite. The only thing British Prime Minister David Cameron could do was to call for «Nay» vote...

Barroso Represents Just Another Fake Portuguese Socialist

The soon-to-be former President of the European Commission, Jose Manuel Barosso, is due to leave office at the end of October after having committed a huge breach of diplomatic protocol. Subsequent to a recent telephone conversation between Barosso and Russian President Vladimir Putin, Barosso saw fit to leak a false transcript of the confidential phone call to the media... Now, it is Putin’s turn to not only have his comments mistranslated and taken out of context, but to be «officially» leaked by the European Union’s top «Eurocrat» to a media begging for every scrap to feed Ukraine’s constantly-whining propaganda machine...

EU twists the arms of candidates

Obediently continuing to follow America’s lead, the European Union is stepping up pressure on non-EU member countries to force them to join anti-Russian sanctions. As leverage, they are using their plans, expectations and misconceptions of European integration... It is unsurprising that the European Union has hurried to force events, although not to reduce tensions in their own relations with Moscow, but to create new dividing lines and ‘trade fronts’... According to Viktor Orban, Poland and the Baltic states are predominantly considering the Russian question in terms of security, while Hungary sees Russia as a business partner and regards other aspects of the current situation as secondary.

Currency Swaps in the Modern World. The Birth of the Global Currency Cartel (II)

Before 2011, unlimited swaps between central banks were open for a period of seven days. In the autumn of 2011, however, the US FRS, the European Central Bank (ECB), the Bank of Japan, the Bank of England, the Bank of Switzerland and the Bank of Canada (the ‘big six’) agreed to coordinate actions to ensure the liquidity of the global financial system... Currency wars are not going anywhere; they are just ceasing to exist within the currency pool of the ‘big six’, while new currency wars between the ‘big six’ and the rest of the world are inevitable. The success of BRICS and other countries on the periphery of global capitalism in building a fair global financial order will, to a large extent, depend on the understanding that the West has already been consolidated and has distanced itself from the rest of the world...
