EU – EAEU could revive Eastern Partnership

... International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA). Report given at the KAS School of Excellence 2018 “Eastern Partnership: Challenges, Chances and Perspectives”. Chisinau, 9 November 2018.*Unfortunately in the West, especially in the “new European” countries, there is yet very little information about the aims and workings of the Eurasian Union. And most of the existing coverage is biased due to purely ideological reasons.The Eurasian Union can best be understood from a liberal intergovernmental ...

Trump-Putin-Xi: Reflections on What Is Not Visible…

... Rothschilds have been stripped of their control over the global economy. The British are wallowing in self-pity as they see the future – not only will the Commonwealth break up in the next ten years, but the Queen of England specifically and royalty across Europe generally are likely to be exposed as Satanists and pedophiles to the point of total disgrace. 04 Massive changes are taking place behind the scenes in the world of banking. Central Banks are certain to be nationalized and in the US the Federal ...

Alterations in history What shall Russia stand for from now on?

For a very long time Russia’s role was to defend the rest of the world from Europe. Since the end of the Cold War, Russia has been trying to facilitate the maintenance of peace and the development of order in the rest of the world. In the absence of Russia, an anarchy would be unleashed in the world that the United States would ...

Moldova received EAEU observer status. What next?

... International experts have noted the opposite positions of the president and the government. While the president of the Republic of Moldova Igor Dodon is “pro-Russian”, the government of the country has traditionally expressed clearly Russophobe and pro-European positions. Within the Eurasian expert community it is rumoured that neither Russia nor Kazakhstan by some premature step  wanted to provoke a situation similar to the one that happened in Ukraine, when the alleged foreign policy choice became ...

The EU-Russia Strategic Partnership was destined to fail from the start

... better than a bad deal - a set of vague generalised statements the Agreement ended up being. Another puzzling aspect of the Agreement that was supposed to be broad and overarching is its lack of influence on the composition and structure of the EEAS (European External Action Service). For instance, despite the prominent place of the Energy Dialogue in the Strategic Partnership the EU Delegation to Russia does not include a structure in charge of fostering and promoting the energy trade. Arguably, ...

The (First) Russo-American Cyberwar: How Obama Lost & Putin Won, Ensuring a Trump Victory

... recent diplomatic talks with them on Syria had been a farce. The same officials noted that Obama “fear[ed]” additional cyberattacks by Putin, additional military harassment in the Black and Baltic seas, and further aggression in Eastern Europe. Yes, incredulously, Obama imagined that turning a blind eye to Russian interference in domestic American elections would somehow invite Russian compromise on other fronts, frustrating some on his team. I am reminded of the scene in The Lord ...

EXCLUSIVE: Top Trump Aides’ Deeper & Linked Roles in Putin Agenda Revealed; Russian Mafia Nexus With Trump & Aides Goes Back Years

... limit Russian influence in Ukraine. Unsurprisingly, some of the disputes between Ukraine and Russia involved fighting over gas deals. This all culminated in a January, 2006, shut-off of Russia’s gas flow into Ukraine and therefore into much of Europe as well, which got the vast majority of its gas from pipes passing through Ukrainian territory. Soon after the shutoff, a new arrangement was made: RUE would now be the exclusive and direct supplier of all natural gas coming from Central Asia ...

Trump, Putin, Russia, DNC/Clinton Hack, & WikiLeaks: “There's Something Going on” with Election 2016 & It's Cyberwarfare & Maybe Worse: UPDATED 8/15

A close look at the tangled web of relationships involving Trump, his Campaign Chairman Paul Manafort, his campaign in general, Putin, Russia, and WikiLeaks in light of the DNC and Clinton-aimed related hacking is not reassuring. Trump is fond of using the phrase: "There's something going on!" when he wants to imply a scandal without going into detail. Well, "There's something going on" here and we will go into detail in this in-depth special report, more than...

The Time to Hesitate is Through

When Turkey shot down that Russian bomber, what exactly was in the message and from whom, more importantly, was it coming from? Who was it that was really saying, “Come on baby light my fire. Try to set the night on fire?” The fact that the Turkish plane, which shot down the Russian bomber, was an American made machine – armed with American air-to-air missiles also raises questions of what possible role the US might have played in this incident. The plane, which shot down the...

Terror in Paris: Time to Think, & Sit Down, Shutup to the Ideologues

This was written as the Paris attacks unfolded. I have preserved the unfolding nature of the original piece to connect the reader in a deeper sense to what I was feeling as I wrote this. As this historic terrorist attack unfolds, France, Europe, the West, and the Middle East need to really think about what they've been doing and what they are about to do before doing it. This is a time to be smart, but it is also a time to marginalize unhelpful, myopic voices, be they those of ...

The Flat World and Black Swans

Why I believe that Russia is an ideal “Black Swan Robust” society Whether or not the world is at all flattening, could be considered a mute, but very debatable point at the moment. One thing, however, which needs nor merits debate, is the rise in appearances of black swans, in the global works of things. Robert Plant, associate professor at the School of Business Administration, University of Miami, in Coral Gables, Florida, contends that, “rather than being flat, the world is as...

Something has, somewhere, somehow, gone radically wrong with the original concept of the idea’s and treaties laid down, by the founding fathers of the European Union – before and since the tearing down of the infamous Berlin Wall. Europe is under attack. And, it is not from Russia The whole concept of the EU and its original mandates are now coming under threat of attack, but not from some despised,...

A Refugee Crisis again? Humanity at its best? Or Worst

... a seminar on Renewable Energy in Kuala Lumpur. In the lift, a Swede, a Norwegian an Englishman, and I – Malaysian-British (although I consider myself a global citizen). There was a brief discussion, on the “Invading” refugees into Europe. It was not political or derogatory in intent, but a reflection on what the press was posting. So I interjected, “Yes we know about the Vikings invading Britain too well. And about the Norwegians and the Swedes discussions on who has the ...
