From Kosovo to Crimea

...The Crimea’s self-determination is not the first time the «Kosovo precedent» exerts impact on the events in the post-Soviet space. As diplomats in Brussels say, the recognition of Kosovo by the West to large extent influenced the decision of Mikheil Saakashvili, then President of Geor-gia, to unleash war in South Ossetia in 2008 to do away once and for all with the «Kosovo of his own». The result is well known. South Ossetia and Abkhazia implemented their right to self-determination and were recognized by Russia... The Russia’s success in Crimea shows the world has really changed. The independence of Kosovo has turned to be a pyrrhic victory for the West...

Crimea’s Reunification with Russia and National Self-Determination Trends in Europe, Time for Peoples to Decide Their Own Fates

The Crimea’s return to Russia is a hot issue, but it’s not something absolutely extraordinary for Europe. Pretty soon the international community’s attention will switch over to other important and unexpected events related to the desire of peoples to implement their right to self-determination... The peoples’ right to self-determination does not only presuppose a partition in case they don’t want to live together, but also unification if it meets the prevailing aspirations. Russia has overcome the negative trends emerged as a result of imposed disintegration and stepped on the different path of consolidation. That’s why the White House is so vibrant in its opposition to what is happening around Ukraine. The great strategic plan of «continents big game» is getting frustrated. As the history goes to show – Crimea is just the first step.

Crimea: Implementation of Peoples' Right to Self-Determination as Germans Suffer from Memory Losses

Germans appear to suffer from lapses of memory. The politicians have forgotten the way their country was united. They were adamant and ready to go to any length to achieve this goal making cede the resistant France and Great Britain... Any predicaments on the way were overcome those days under the slogan Wir sind das Volk – We are one People! Russia supported the aspiration to unity. Now why Berlin refuses the right of Russians living in Crimea to join the Russians living across the Kerch Strait? The German Chancellor joins the choir of other Western leaders saying that what is happening in Crimea is annexation. Why?

Who Benefits from Terror Plague? The Answer is Blowing in the Wind

Terrorism came into being as soon as humanity appeared, but the US special services turned it into a threat of global scale. The end of the 1970s can be considered as the starting point. Back then the Central Intelligence Agency launched a training program for  «Islamic brigades» to entangle the Union of Soviet Socialist Republic into the war in Afghanistan... The war on terror declared by the United States on September 11 only made international terrorist groups stronger and even made them come to power in some countries. Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Syria became victims of US anti-terror fight... Today Al-Nusra Front, an Al Qaeda affiliated armed group, formally listed as a terrorist organization by US State Department, is a United States leading partner in Syria. No surprise the White House policy evoked protest among US military making Congress bombarded with e-mail protests «Obama, I will not deploy to fight for your al-Qaida rebels in Syria»...

Kosovo and the UN

...In the very near future the UN could once again be on the front lines of the Kosovo adjustment process. In June 1999 the United Nations was able, with the active participation of Russia, to save face to some extent and keep the situation in Kosovo from coming under the full control of the architects of the "new world order". The following years did not bring the UN any laurels in the Kosovo area. Isn't it time for this international organization to work on its mistakes?

Why Was a New International Tribunal for Kosovo Necessary?

The issue of changing the format of the European Union's presence in Kosovo, which at first seemed to be purely technical, has suddenly acquired a political dimension and aroused serious passions in the relationship between Brussels and Priština. Having acquired a taste for strengthening its self-proclaimed statehood on the tide of the agreements "beaten" out of Belgrade with the help of the West, the Albanian separatist leaders have raised their hands against a "sacred cow" - the European Union's EULEX police and civilian mission…

How the EU and NATO Complement One Another

...At the same time as the conclusion of negotiations between Belgrade and Priština, as a result of which the institutions and state property of the Republic of Serbia on the territory of Kosovo are being transferred to the regime of Hashim Thaçi, not long ago the new U.S. embassy complex (which cost 140 million dollars to build) was opened in the most prestigious area of Belgrade, Dedinje. Behind the unusual facade of the new 14,000 sq. m. complex lies one of the largest citadels of American intelligence in the Balkans...

The EU in Kosovo: Leaving in order to stay

The conclusion of the Brussels agreements between Belgrade and Pristina and their subsequent ratification by the parliaments of both sides involved in the negotiations has given the European Union a convenient excuse to absolve itself of all formal responsibility for what is happening in Kosovo... Much more important is the trend itself of phasing out the international peacekeeping presence in Kosovo, which has clearly been gathering momentum in recent years...

Brussels Gambit and US World Wide Interests

The European summit is to open on June 27. As the date was approaching, the issue of Serbia’s European Union membership talks start date was more and more shifting into spotlight... Germany’s stance will be decisive. The issue will be discussed by all 27 full-fledged members at working dinner on Friday. It is reported, the draft decision mentions fixing a concrete start date for the talks between Brussels and Belgrade on Serbia’s accession. But Germany is intent to press for changing the draft decision so that it would be possible to exert pressure on Serbia pushing it for diplomatic recognition of Kosovo...

The ignominious anniversary of an illegal court. On 20 years since the creation of ICTY

Twenty years ago, on 25 May 1993, the UN Security Council created the so-called International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY). The UN Charter does not give either the Security Council or any other UN body the right to create international law courts, which means that the creation of the tribunal was unlawful. Those who established the ICTY were fully aware that they were acting unlawfully, but went ahead nevertheless... From the outset of the ICTY, its activities were illegal...

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...
