Libya: Situation is Unpredictable
June 27, 2015

The situation in Libya is continuing to develop alarmingly. The current situation in the country is characterised by a complete lack of any signs of a state system. Libya is being devoured by civil war, disintegration, and the seizure of its territory by a huge variety of forces, most notably the Islamic State. Despite the fact that Prime Minister al-Thani took part in the recently concluded African Union summit in Johannesburg as the head of Libya, suggesting that he is actually the one ruling the country would be a sad joke. And although al-Thani’s government is actually recognised by the African Union (and the majority of other countries) as ‘legitimate’, this is more out of despair…

Game with No Rules: Legal Imperialism against Russia (I)
February 17, 2015

The term legal imperialism was coined in relation to the Argentina’s public debt. A New York court admitted a number of private claims to hand down a verdict. By a stroke of hand a judge increased the country’s debt up to $120 billion, according to experts’ estimates. The essence of legal imperialism is the support rendered by Anglo-Saxon legal system to financial vultures… The decision handed down by the Hague-based International Arbitration Court in the Russian oil giant Yukos case upon the claim of foreign shareholders is the example of how the legal imperialism works…

The Republic of Croatia filed the suit against Serbia in 1999 to accuse it of committing genocide during the armed conflict on the territory of former Yugoslavia in 1991-1994. The barefaced impudence comparable with the affirmations about Russia being «an aggressor» made Serbia respond…

Syria: Strike Probability Increases as Chemical Disarmament Proceeds
December 12, 2013

…The process of Syria’s chemical weapons elimination is making headway fully in accordance with the plan worked out by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons. The United Nations Secretary General said the Geneva-2 talks are to kick off on January 22 (8). The fact that the plan is being successfully implemented evokes fury among those, who, as before, rely exclusively on the use of force and toppling the SyriPresident as the ways to solve the issue…

On the other hand, Nigeria is experiencing massive pressure from the International Criminal Court, international human rights organizations and the local fifth column. This synchronized attack comes amid the destabilization of a number of neighboring countries… 

Terror Acts in US: Who Gains? (II)
May 4, 2013

Anton Chekhov, a great Russian writer, has once said «If in Act I you have a pistol hanging on the wall, then it must fire in the last act». If a country, like the United States churns out a number of contingency laws, then one day a contingency will really occur. The more US state debt grows, the more currency collapse becomes real and the chances the country would become an authoritarian state go up… The Patriot Act of 2001 was a laying stone of a legal foundation for future dictatorial rule…
