What these British are waiting for? I mean Brexit.

... broad was the topic. Once I asked my British-Indian friend: ‘What has been the news talking about before Brexit?’. And he was like: ‘Well, how one politician was eating the sandwich…’ In brief, nothing interesting and nothing special was in UK politics before Brexit. The United Kingdom was following previously the EU, NATO, the US, so an independent move (Brexit) was met with enthusiasm and interest from the global community. Indeed, for 2 years Brexit has become the concentration of the ...

Scotland's Independence - the Irish Border ... and the US

It is great foot-work of Scotland to communicate the message of Independence to the EU Resistance to Scottish Independence will come – and perhaps even also from a corner not in England, but across the pond. The UK is a key US ally. Scotland has a strategic location for UK sea-air control of the northern entrance to the North-Sea, of Scandinavia and the North Atlantic. Source: s.yimg.com Scotland’s Independence will mean severely breaking up the unity and ...

Maximize chances for Ireland amid Brexit calamity

... instance, the City of Dublin can gain a lot of business, as the City of London leaves the EU. Now we have the first proof that my vision for Ireland is correct: Google big-tech, on the verge of Brexit, suddenly moves a finance center of business from the UK to Ireland Just a few days before the Brexit deadline, Google quickly moves a pivotal finance-company to the EU-member, Republic of Ireland, even in spite of the heavy fine, which the EU imposed on Google in Ireland. This bears proof to my assessment,...

Paris, Kremlin’s new ally in Europe?

It didn’t take much time to Prime Minister Theresa May to react to the apparent poisoning of former Russian spy Sergey Skripal and his daughter Youlia. A few days after the Salisbury Hospital confirmed identification of the nerve agent to which the Skripals and other collateral victims were exposed, the British Prime Minister announced before the House of Commons a set of retaliation measures in response to what she called “a use of military-grade nerve agent in Europe with sarcasm, contempt and...

A British View on the US – Russian Strategic Arms Control Process

As a first step one would need to define what is meant by engaging the UK in the arms control, disarmament & nuclear non-proliferation process taking place between the US and Russia. The UK’s case in the arms control, disarmament and nuclear non-proliferation process is a complicated one because of the 1958 & 1959 ...

European Energy Woes

... does not undermine its energy security, but for a region which will dependent on imports for 80% (some sources even indicate 88-90%) of its energy needs by 2025-2030, it will naturally be more susceptible to risks. Any setbacks, or sudden events, ala Fukushima or Arab Spring will have serious repercussions. If something happens, Europeans will not be able to sustain themselves via own reserves or domestic production, due to this heavy import dependence. In reality, we are talking about a market which ...

Putin, Pottery and Media Pundits

During my analysis of UK media perspectives on the Russian President, Vladimir Putin, I have noticed several patterns: articles about Medvedev’s presidency invariably include a paragraph or two naming Putin as the ‘real power’ in Russia; almost every article ...

Shale Revolution – Full Steam Ahead!

... most open and friendly for shale production in the West, but Europe is currently concerned about water pollution and other side-effects of fracking. On 1 April and 27 May 2011 two earthquakes with magnitudes 2.3 and 1.5 were felt in the Blackpool area, UK; these earthquakes were suspected to be linked to hydraulic fracture treatments at ‘Preese Hall Well’ operated by Cuadrilla Resources Ltd. Production was resumed only on 13 December 2012 after UK wide suspension was lifted. Nevertheless,...

Depardieu, Instagram and Ramzan Kadyrov’s ‘adorable side’

Recently in the British press there has been extensive coverage of Ramzan Kadyrov, the Chechen President. While my main research focus is representations of Vladimir Putin in UK print media, it is interesting to observe how another ‘Russian’ leader is portrayed, in reference to both masculinity and international politics. Over the past few weeks the British press have covered two stories on Kadyrov – the ...

History and the evolution of British perspectives on Russia

... it is the product of a chain of decisions on what is counted as ‘news’, as well as editorial changes designed to produce stories to pique our curiosity. Despite the potential for a wide range of stories about Russia, we can see that the UK print media frequently choses to produce news items which use Putin and masculinity as a ‘lens’ through which to analyse developments in Russia. Despite the fact that we have more information on Russia and the Russians than ever before,...

In Russia success has also been achieved as upon their arrival into local areas, GDP per person on average has grown by 5 times or as high as 10 times in poorer regions (e.g. Jewish Autonomous District). In Yakutia and Chukotka GDP per person has grown from just 100,000 rubles per annum to 1.1 million. But, local salaries will need to keep growing as in areas like the Far East, where conditions are difficult and getting access to goods is even more difficult, simple items ...
