Ukraine: Civil War or Civil Peace?

The German Foreign Office has invited for a meeting the foreign ministers of Ukraine, Russia and France. The event took place on July 2. In Berlin Russia made the first step allowing OSCE observers to be placed at the Russian observation posts. As the meeting was wounding up, the German Foreign Minister said it he did not expect a solution by a wave of a magic wand, but the event was the first and significant step on the way to ceasefire. He is being cautious and this approach is justified. Many remember how the previous accords have failed, for instance: the agreement of February 21 was kind of a stillborn child, the Geneva April 17 agreements produced no results. Nothing will change for the better till the US emissaries call the shots... It’s not civil war that Ukraine needs, but rather peace. Peace is what meets the interests of Europe no matter what they think overseas about it.

The financial perils of the eurozone

Until recently European leaders were still making cheerful claims that the EU’s economic recovery was finally at hand and that the euro zone was safely out of the woods. But no one’s saying that anymore. In the first quarter of 2014, GDP in the eurozone averaged only 0.2% growth - only half as much as was expected. Germany has fared slightly better with a 0.8% increase in GDP, as have Belgium and Spain (which both gained 0.4% in the first quarter of this year). The situation in other eurozone countries looks far more grim. France recorded zero growth, GDP in the Netherlands shrank by 1.4%, in Greece by 1.1%, in Cyprus and Portugal by 0.7%, in Finland by 0.4%, and in Italy by 0.1%...

EU Constitution Marks 10 Years: Story of Stillborn Child

The European constitution saw light ten years ago. On June 18, 2004 it was previously approved by member-states summit. It never came into force foreboding future problems. Today the process of European integration is actually stymied; the numbers of Eurosceptics are growing. No matter that Serbia and some other Balkan states view the European Union as a messiah. It makes it expedient to have a look at what the authors of the constitution wanted and why their efforts were in vain.

Poroshenko: Off To a Bad Start - Dire Fallout Looming Out to Tower around Ukraine

 After the meeting between President Putin and Chancellor Merkel in Donbass, mainstream German media outlets violated the informal taboo and started to report the facts about the upcoming humanitarian disaster in Donbass; five cities left without water and electricity, the number of refugees has grown up to 10 thousand.  Germans reacted in posts, “Until now the West has given a priority to humanitarian interventions, now it has changes somehow. The West will lose credibility worldwide if the attitude does not change.”  Another post said “When will they tell the truth at last! Children suffer most. The European Union could have started water supplies. Set in his ways   Poroshenko will give a start to a catastrophe. Total terror, intimidation of civilians. Obama is put to shame!”

The Durability of Ukrainian Fascism

Readers outside of Europe might not be aware of it, but spring is the fascist marching season in the Baltic republics.

George Freedman and Germany

...Since a long time ago Germany has been balancing between transatlantic solidarity and the reality reflecting real national and European interests... A Cold War with Russia is not what German taxpayers and German elite want. Even the top military leaders, who support the idea of increasing military expenditure, oppose the idea of making Ukraine a member of NATO... According to George Friedman, Germany is becoming a problem for Europe. He makes a mistake. Germany is not a problem for Europe but is a problem for the USA with its old fashioned lust for world domination.

Time to Remember Operation Overlord

One day before the operation Overlord began, Stalin informed Churchill that according to Tehran agreements, the Soviet offensive would start in mid-July at one of decisive sections of the front. The armies would gradually switch to offensive actions.  In the period late June – end of July the Soviet forces would start overall offensive. He meant operation Bagration launched on June 23, 1944 in Belorussiain concert with the actions of allies fighting at the second front. Hitler was encircled by the coalition forces and his collapse was inevitable. History allows drawing lessons. No matter the differences between political systems, the USSR and Western allies could unite against the common enemy – German Nazism threatening human civilization. What about Neo-Nazism emerging in Ukraine?  Few in the West share the opinion it must be opposed. The events of the 1930s are repeated again…

European Parliament’s New «Neo-Nazi / Far Right» – Not so «Nazi» and not so «Far Right»

Amid all the hair pulling and teeth gnashing by the Eurocrats and their overly paid pundits in the media about how the European Parliament electoral victories of the Eurosceptic French National Front, UK Independence Party, Danish People’s Party, and other «far right» parties could spell the imminent doom for the European Union, some level-headed observations are in order... The entrance of a large bloc of Eurosceptic parties into the Strasbourg parliament has resulted in confusion among the right, the center, and the left. Perhaps, this is because the old labels applied to the political spectrum are no longer applicable. Even the spectrum no longer applies...

Europe Has No Intention to Clean Out Augean Stables Left by Kiev

Like in a wave of magic wand European media stopped intimidating people with the threat coming from the East as the presidential election in Ukraine wound up. The threat looked especially ominous at the time Europe marks the 100th anniversary since the start of World War I... Chancellor Angela Merkel opened a major exhibition marking the centenary of the First World War in Berlin on May 28. In her speech there she avoided mentioning the rise of tension in the heart of Europe. The European elite have other headaches than the after-Maidan Ukraine. This is the time of redrawing the Brussels political landscape and it’s much more important than cleaning out the Poroshenko Augean Stables...

European Politics Will Be Different From Today On

The European Parliament election made Eurosceptics big winners. The never relenting obsession to make Ukraine break up with Russia has started to undermine the fragile basis of European security allowing nationalists and isolationists make significant gains. The Petro Poroshenko’s victory in Ukraine with ultra right and nationalists gaining more seats in parliament changes the correlation of forces inside the European Union and affects the EU-Kiev-Moscow relationship. Ukraine became consolidated around an oligarch while the European parliament has internal divisions exacerbated. «European politics will be different from today on», said Doru Frantescu, policy director and co-founder of VoteWatch Europe, an independent Brussels-based organization that tracked opinion polls in the run-up to the elections...

Washington’s Banking Sanctions – Formal and Informal

...Since 1 April 2009, American financial regulators have fined European banks 32 times totalling nearly $25 billion... On 30 June 2014, the French bank BNP Paribas, which ranks fourth in the world in terms of assets and second in France, agreed to pay US authorities a record $9-billion fine. The bank’s management is charged with helping its Sudanese, Iranian and Cuban clients carry out dollar transactions banned by the US sanctions regime. In the coming months, giants of European banking like the German Kommerzbank and Deutsche Bank, French Credit Agricole and Societe Generale, and Italian Unicredit, among others, could also be subject to penalties...
