Georgia Boosts Cooperation with NATO

The NATO summit adopted a significant aid package to Georgia to pave the way for full-fledged membership. The country did not receive the MAP (Membership Action Plan). But it goes on to boost the cooperation. For instance, a new NATO military training center is to be built and some exercises of the alliance are to be held on Georgian soil. The NATO liaison office will have more functions to carry out. The NATO summit final declaration says the measures are aimed at enhancing the Georgia’s military capability and interoperability with the alliance...

Stepping on the Path of Open Hostility – US to Create New Military Alliance against Russia

The US Congress is doing its part to escalate the tensions with Russia over Ukraine. The Russian Aggression Prevention Act of 2014, which is introduced in Senate, has been read twice and is referred to the Committee on Foreign Relations. It provides major non-NATO ally status for Ukraine, Georgia, and Moldova. Actually, the bill provides a blueprint for US intentions in Ukraine and Eastern Europe for the coming years... The bill directs the US Department of Defense to assess the capabilities and needs of the Ukrainian armed forces. It authorizes the President, upon completion of such assessment, to provide specified military assistance to Ukraine» and «Expresses the sense of Congress that the President should: (1) provide Ukraine with information about Russian military and intelligence capabilities on Ukraine’s eastern border and within Ukraine’s territorial borders, including Crimea; and (2) ensure that such intelligence information is protected from further disclosure»...

The European Court of Human Rights’ Verdict on Georgia vs Russia

On 3 July, the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) reached a decision in the case of Georgia vs Russia. The case seems quite remarkable. The majority of complaints to the ECtHR are submitted by individuals (for example Kalashnikov vs Russia), but this case is of an intergovernmental nature: the government of Georgia against the government of the Russian Federation. In its more than six-decade history, the ECtHR has ruled on a total of three intergovernmental complaints...

What Common People of New EU Associate Members Have a Right to Know

On June 27 Georgia, Ukraine and Moldova signed association agreements with the EU. The move was presented as a decisive turn for democracy and human rights. But some issues related to the decision had been purposefully kept under the radar screen. Media assured the grassroots were not adequately provided information about some crucially important aspects of the step to be taken by their respective governments that have chosen the so-called European choice. So one day the people of those states may wake up to find themselves facing raw awakening they have never expected. True, the economic transition period from associated status to membership is not going to be a bed of roses. And there is a specific feature here - if there is any social discontent you’d better conceal it and keep mum... or else!...

NATO Steps Up Hostilities over Ukraine (I)

On May 1, NATO’s Deputy Secretary General, US diplomat Alexander Vershbow said to a group of reporters that «we have to begin to view Russia no longer as a partner but as more of an adversary than a partner». He stated that the alliance is considering new measures to «deter» Russia, including deploying more forces to Eastern Europe. NATO Secretary General, Anders Fogh Rasmussen, said ditto stressing that Russia is now more of an adversary than a partner in an interview to BBC Newswire... NATO’s three-week «Spring Storm» drills, involving a record-breaking number of 6,000 troops, will be held in 5 out of 15 Estonian counties, including southern and southeastern regions close to the border with Russia. Launched on May 5 the exercises are scheduled to finish on May 23... Russia considers the increase of NATO forces so close to its border a provocation...

The ‘Eastern Partnership’ is fading away before our very eyes

The EU’s Eastern Partnership summit that took place in Prague on 24-25 April was called to solve the Hamlet question of whether the programme itself is to be or not to be. It was unable to do so, however... Of late, finance and energy have increasingly been coming to the fore in the foreign policy priorities of the eastern European countries of Eastern European and the post-Soviet world, as well as post-Soviet states... The real financial and economic cost of the Ukrainian issue is well understood by many in the European Union itself, especially in the Czech Republic and Slovakia...

US Pushes Georgia into NATO: MAP is Option Again

...On his recent visit to Washington on February 25 Georgian Prime Minister Garibashvili got the assurances that his country will get a MAP at NATO September 2014 session in Cardiff, Wales, in case Crimea votes for joining the Russian Federation at the March 16 referendum... Russia still maintains a military presence within the breakaway regions of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, and regards NATO advancement as an immediate threat. Giving MAP to Georgia means constant confrontation with Russia adamant to stay firm asserting its foreign policy interests and ready to rebuff any attempts to intimidate or exert pressure on it...

Georgia’s NATO Membership: Dreams and Reality

...The United States needs Georgia not as a military ally but rather as a country providing important routes, including pipelines. For America Georgia is not a country with its own culture and established traditions but rather a transit zone and a rear bridgehead for a military action against Iran. And it is not accidental that the US provides much money for military airports in Vaziani, Marneuli and near the port of Batumi...

Kazakhstan Biological Laboratory: What Does Pentagon Need it For?

The US Department of Defense (DOD) is building an extremely expensive dual purpose biological laboratory in Kazakhstan. These kinds of facilities are built by the Pentagon along the Russian border creating a potential threat for the Russian Federation and the states of Central Asia... The program is overseen by Richard Lugar, the Senator who is known to have close ties to military establishment. He had dealt with dismantling former Soviet nuclear facilities in Kazakhstan and other states of CIS switching later to tackling the issue of biological weapons, in particular in Ukraine and Georgia (the latter had no biological weapons in the times of the Soviet Union, but the laboratory named after Richard Lugar has been built there in our days)...

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...

Political Manipulations with the Price of Oil

The drop in oil prices that began at the same time as Islamic State (IS) attacks in Iraq and Syria is impossible to explain with economic factors. The world has long been used to the fact that the market has reacted to every war in the Middle East, where 47 per cent of the world’s ‘black gold’ reserves are concentrated, with a sharp jump in oil prices. That is what happened during the two wars in the Persian Gulf, and that is also what happened when the Americans began their ‘mission to restore democracy’ in Afghanistan. And speculation about a possible military conflict between the US and Iran was accompanied by the expectation of a jump in oil prices of up to $200 a barrel and higher. At present, everything has turned upside down, but for how long?..
