January 24, 2014

Out of a series of terrorist attacks which took place January 16-17, the explosion in Kabul attracted the most attention. Information about the explosion in Lebanon was hardly noticed at all. But the explosion in the Lebanese city of Hermel on January 16, as a result of which five people were killed and dozens were injured, is of great significance in understanding what is happening in Lebanon and Syria.

A New Flare-Up of the War in Congo
November 1, 2013

The beginning of autumn was marked by a new flare-up of military operations in the central part of Africa. In early September troops from the rebel group M23 attacked the encampment of the UN mission to DR Congo in Kibati. The government of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) sent a letter to the UN Security Council to request immediate intervention. The government of DR Congo demanded that the UN Security Council force Rwanda to finally withdraw its troops from the eastern part of the DRC and ask the International Criminal Court to declare the actions of M23 crimes against humanity… The war in the DRC has been raging for several decades, and the question arises: who is encouraging it?..

The ignominious anniversary of an illegal court. On 20 years since the creation of ICTY
May 25, 2013

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.

Caught in Turbulence
January 23, 2012

The views expressed by Sergey Lavrov at the January 18 media conference reflect Russia's evolution over the past years from a country which – at the cost of its great power status but to the liking of powerful external players and its domestic fifth column – used to be ready to steer a fully dependent course to that demonstrating newly found assertiveness in the international politics. US President Bill Clinton reportedly said in 1995 that the US would let Russia exist but not as a great power. The lesson to be learned from the past 15 years is that there are limits to the US control…
