2015 AU Summit Wound Up in Johannesburg: Meetings on the Sidelines and Afterthoughts

The African Union (AU) summit took place on June 7-15 in Johannesburg. It was the most intriguing and fruitful meeting in many years. African leaders made a big step on the way to economic integration as Africa is turning into an international entity...

The Attack on South Africa. Round Three

Domestic affairs in South Africa have sharply deteriorated since April of this year. A wave of violence has erupted against foreigners all across the country. The first incidents occurred during the Soweto riots in mid-January. This marked the beginning of the social upheaval in South Africa - a country with a wealth of natural resources and a population of over 50 million. The violence then made its way to major cities - Durban, Johannesburg, and others... Of all the theories about the causes of the social unrest in South Africa, the most likely version points to some outside influence on the country...

What’s in a Name? Political Correctness

The corporate media in the West has imposed another rule on journalists that is straight out of George Orwell’s 1984 Newspeak dictionary. Place names in Ukraine that have been used by journalists, historians, novelists, and others for decades are now to be spelled according to the diktats of the Ukrainian government, its diaspora activists and lobbyists around the globe, and a class of non-governmental organization employees who are well-paid to police the Internet for «violators»...

Scoop News or What Triggers New UN Probe into Dag Hammarskjöld’s Death?

On December 31, 2014, the UN General Assembly approved by consensus a Resolution that requested Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to appoint an independent Panel of Experts to examine the new information that has emerged on the tragic death of former UN chief Dag Hammarskjöld. ... Dag Hjalmar Agne Carl Hammarskjöldwas Secretary-General of the United Nations from 10 April 1953 until 18 September 1961. The plane carrying the UN Secretary General was shot down over Ndola, Northern Rhodesia (now Zambia) on the night of 17-18 September 1961. 16 men on board perished. In April 1962 a UN investigative panel said it was impossible to make definitive conclusions though the report contained enough facts to establish the truth. For instance, some states, including the United States and Great Britain, did their best to conceal it. ... There was enough proof gathered in 1961-1962 to make the conclusion that the Secretary General was killed. ... The previous investigative commissions successively ignored or downplayed the testimonyprovided by inconvenient witnesses. ...  Great Britain has already tried to distort the facts related to the complicity of South African, UK and US special services in the assassination of Hammarskjöld.

Southern Africa Countries Elect New Governments

The countries of Southern Africa go through a period of elections taking place in succession. On November 28, seventy-three-year-old Prime Minister Hage Geingob, a leading politician of Namibia, won the presidential election receiving nearly 87 percent of votes. With the population slightly over two million Namibia is an important contributor into the world economy. The country is the fifth largest uranium producer (after Kazakhstan, Canada, Australia and Niger) and is expected to become the leading world uranium raw material exporter in 2015. While Namibia is known predominantly for its gem diamond and uranium deposits, it is also rich in gold, manganese, copper, tin, tungsten and zinc. Wide opportunities exist for offshore gas extraction (with deposits still not fully explored)...

Reparations for Colonialism

...In 2007 the litigation suit was launched at the high court in central London. The Kenyans wanted the UK government to pay them £59, 75 for the atrocities committed by British troops sent to quell the uprising. The veterans of liberation movement were resolute. They said in case of refusal they would go to the International Court in The Hague. Leigh Day issued a claim on behalf of the plaintiffs. In June 2013 the case ended up in an out-of-court settlement of about £19, 9 million pounds (23, 04 million euros). The ruling can be considered as a success though the money is only a third of the sum wanted by claimants. This is a precedent that made the West panic and inspired the developing countries to continue their fight for colonial reparations.

South African Sketches (IV)

The May 7 general election will make it clear who’ll rule the country for the next five years. As of May 1, 2014, the National Electoral Commission of South Africa registered 200 political parties, including 152 national and 48 provincial ones.  29 parties are taking part in the election... So, who’ll rule South Africa? It’s not an idle question. No matter in 2014 South Africa has ceased to be the leading African economy overtaken by Nigeria; it still is the leading power of the continent...

South African Sketches

Unexpectedly the events in Ukraine have become an indicator displaying the attitude of South Africans towards Russia. On the one hand, South African media outlets reprint the reports of Western information agencies depicting the life in Russia as doom and gloom without silver lining. On the other hand, some of them, especially the ones that support the government, try to fight this information tyranny... There are forces in South Africa which are ready to oppose the most massive anti-Russia campaign in many years; no matter the issue has little relation to the country. To understand why one should turn to history...

Limits of Globalization and BRICS Economic Cooperation

...The very coming into existence of BRICS (initially the triangle of Russia - India - China) goes back to the well-known event when then Russian Prime Minister Evgeny Primakov turned the plane around in 1999 as he was flying to the United States for a visit at the very time NATO started to bomb Yugoslavia. There was a feeling the time was right to set limits for globalization in politics (the way it was implemented by the West by the end of the XX century) as its economic aspects were coming under harsh criticism after the crises of 1997-1998...

Asia Pivot Declared, US Army Eyes Africa

U.S. President Barack Obama's visit to Africa in June-July was widely seen as evidence of the White House's broader foreign policy objectives which have included an expansion of U.S. military operations across Africa. With the forces leaving Afghanistan, the Army is looking for new missions around the world. « As we reduce the rotational requirement to combat areas, we can use these forces to great effect in Africa », Gen. David M. Rodriguez, the head of the Africa Command, told Congress this year…

Russia has enough gas for everyone

The June 26 speech by Alexey Miller, the chairman of the board of Gazprom, at the annual general meeting of shareholders proved to be a cold shower for all those who hoped that Russia would pull out of Europe’s gas markets. Despite the fact that much of his report was devoted to Gazprom’s operations in the Russian Far East, the data Miller provided confirmed that Russian gas will not be squeezed out of Europe’s energy balance. Moreover, in the coming years Russian gas supplies will continue to play a steadily larger role in ensuring European energy security...
