Eurasian Economic Union Came into Force

As the new year started, the Eurasian Economic Union (the EEU) signed on May 29, 2014 came into force to include Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Armenia and Kirgizia. The EEU boasts the population of 183 million (the seventh largest in the world) and covers over 20 million square kilometers (15% of the earth’s land). The organization is the largest world gas (22% of global output) and oil (14, 6% of global output) producer, the second largest producer of mineral fertilizers (14% of world output), the third largest energy (9% of global output) producer and the fourth largest producer of steel (6% of global production) and coal (6% of global output)... (1) But what really matters is that the Eurasian Union is «a model of a powerful, supranational association capable of becoming one of the poles of the modern world... to play an effective bridge role between Europe and the dynamic Asia-Pacific region»...

On the Pentagon’s Biological Laboratories in Ukraine

...In ten years, the number of American laboratories engaged in developing ways to protect against bioterrorism, according to the official version, has grown from 20 to 400. Secret biological centres have appeared in Africa and Latin and America, biological laboratories of unknown function have opened in Ukraine and Georgia, and it is also planned to open a biological centre in Kazakhstan in 2015. The majority of these activities are being supervised by the Pentagon... In Ukraine in 2013 alone, biolaboratories were opened in Vinnytsia, Ternopil, Uzhhorod, Kiev, Dnepropetrovsk, Simferopol, Kherson, Lviv (three laboratories at once in this town!) and Lugansk with the support of the US. Today, the Pentagon’s biolaboratories are gathered around Russia in a semicircle...

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)...

Eurasian Economic Integration in 2013: Results and Prospects

A meeting of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council took place in Moscow on December 24 with the participation of Russian President Vladimir Putin, President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko and President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev. After the meeting of the heads of states which make up the integration nucleus, the counterparts from Armenia and Kyrgyzstan, as well as Ukrainian Prime Minister Azarov, who was there as an observer, joined the talks... The signing of the Eurasian Economic Union treaty is slated for May 2014 to launch the project in January 2015. The creation of a powerful industrial and financial base will allow to compete and make the Union one of world economy leaders. The achievement of this strategic objective is the main mission of the Eurasian Economic Space for the coming future...

The Caspian Dispute

The president of Russia, when speaking at the last big press conference of the year, praised the achievements of Russian foreign policy highly... Given the growth of Russia's international authority, one might expect it to come closer to resolving the problems which have accumulated over the years in the Caspian Basin... The five Caspian states have not been able to sign a Convention on the status of the Caspian Sea for 17 years; they are still just trying to work out principles based on which all the countries would agree to jointly administer the common body of water... It has already been announced that the Fourth Caspian Summit will be held in Astrakhan in 2014...

The Eurasian Economic Union and Its International Relevance

On November 18, 2011 the presidents of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan signed the Declaration of Eurasian Economic Integration, and on May 29, 2012 in Astana, at a meeting of the heads of the Customs Union member states, a program for preparing a draft of a Eurasian Economic Union Treaty was approved... The final stage in creating a new economic union will be the signing of the Treaty in May 2014 by the presidents of the member states of the new Union.  In the second half of 2014 the Treaty on the Creation of a Eurasian Economic Union is to be ratified by the parliaments of the states acceding to the Treaty, and on January 1, 2015 it is to come into force...

Does US Comply with International Bio-Weapons Ban?

At present many reports from different sources keep on saying the US is developing a new generation of weapons that undermine and possibly violate international treaties on biological and chemical warfare... While Syria’s chemical stockpile is on international radar screen, the wider issue of American secret labs is being suppressed. The US is actively involved in the implementation of vast biological program, including the territories of other states in clear violation of its international commitments...

What the Eurasian Union is about

In 2011 the Presidents of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan signed an agreement to create a Eurasian Economic Union (EEU) and have it fully functioning by 2015. The issue is in the focus of media and experts community. Some are somewhat skeptical about the idea, especially in the USA, where the plans are met with open hostility and the government is called upon to effectively counter the initiative... Is the project likely to succeed? Is it not hypocritical to oppose the process of regional integration in Eurasia while supporting it elsewhere? It’s worth to have a look at what the project is about, while setting aside for the time being mantra-like repeated accusations of imperialism just because one of the would-be members has a larger GDP than others (like if it could be otherwise)...

China's Growing Economic Importance to Central Asia

The June summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) highlighted China's swelling economic presence in Central Asia. Chinese premier Hu Jintao unveiled an ambitious agenda for the region, with $10b in loans to be infused into the corresponding projects. At the moment, the Chinese investments in Central Asian republics estimatedly total $20b, and Beijing evidently aims at the role of the main economic partner of the entire Central Asia, especially in the spheres of energy and transit...

Antidote to Fundamentalism and Terrorism

In international politics, relations of trade and commerce among nations are known, but spiritual cooperation? This is in fact the central call of religious leaders at Astana in Kazakhstan. While speaking at the 4 th conference of Leaders of World and Traditional Religions, held on 30 th and 31 st of May 2012, the Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev spoke at length about the global crisis of moral values and the disorder and degeneration that have set in religions...

Obama Hustles Modi, Did He Succeed?

...Indeed, the US objective has always been to recruit India in its containment strategy against China... However, the moment Obama and the spin doctors in his entourage took off for home, Indian officials scrambled to do fire-fighting, distancing themselves from their «strategic misinterpretation» of the joint strategic vision statement. According to them, Modi made it clear to Obama that India’s independent foreign policies would not allow any «third power» (read US) to forge a common front against China...
