US-China Relations: Moving Towards a New Cold War?

... anti-China coalition. New Delhi has uneasy relations and deep-rooted differences with Beijing. However, India is also reluctant to take on binding commitments in the US-led drive to deter China. In turn, China has not established a coalition against the West, either. Russia and China are listed in US doctrines next to each other as adversaries. That said, they do not have a military-political alliance although their partnership is deep and the level of trust is unprecedentedly high. Another important feature is the preservation ...


BRICS and the Western-Centric Global Film Industry: Possibilities of the Digital Era

... Becoming an anti-US Group In the recent decades, the West (defined in this study as the United States, Britain and the EU) has lost its uncontested dominance on the global arena in terms of economy and geopolitics, as the new economic powerhouses such as China have emerged and the globe has entered the era of the multipolar world order. However, there is a certain field in which the West still remains a singular hegemon: a field which has, as surprising as it may sound to some, significant importance for the international political affairs. This field is the global film industry. The West's hegemony in this field rests on several ...


Andrey Kortunov: Cooperation with the West Will Only Happen When Russia Modernises

... question directly, I think Russia can only return to the West if some Russian leadership sets itself a goal to undertake serious social and economic modernisation. At present we just do not have the social and economic demand for cooperation with the West. If all of your exports are crude oil and gas, then you do not care to whom you sell it. Russia would not be able to copy China’s model, because we just do not have that kind of demographic and cultural background. In this case, Russia’s only option would be the Western one, because culturally and psychologically we are simply closer to the West. It is said that nothing ...


Protracted Asymmetric Geopolitical Conflict

... negotiation with the West and the competition (which became enmity for a period) with China. They are structurally oriented towards the West; their institutional faces are turned westwards. Their entire spirit and ethos are those of partnership with the West and suspicion of China stemming from the 1960s and 1970s. Institutions need to reflect the tasks of the new times, those of facing the West as an adversary in a protracted Cold War encompassing a global hybrid war; facing encirclement by the West and the global offensive ...


Russia’s Way of Being in the World, from Yesterday to Tomorrow

... therefore always be perceived as a threat and an enemy. Dayan Jayatilleka: Hybrid Power and the Real Russian Realists The global game is objectively zero-sum, and that zero-sum character seems to reflect itself more accurately at the subjective level in the West than in Russia or China. Why do many nations follow the US, even though it may not approve of US behavior? The common answer is hard power supplemented by soft power, or as Gramsci termed it about the more general phenomenon of capitalism, “hegemony armored by coercion....


Endgame of the Long Cold War

... experience of “High Détente” of the early-mid 1970s. This obscures two complex facts: the imperatives that underlay this détente and the discrediting and rollback of détente immediately after the relevant crisis had passed. The crisis for the West was that of the Vietnam War and North Vietnam’s successful pushback of US intervention. The Kissingerian attempt resulting from the imperatives of the crisis was to negotiate with the USSR and China, and leverage the competition between them, to act as a restraint on North Vietnam. The Kissingerian tactic worked to a limited extent and explained the timing: the toasts raised in Moscow and Beijing by the US delegation while B-52s were engaging ...


Beyond the Right Side of History

... it. The crisis and retreat of the liberal world order is a prevailing topic nowadays, with commentators trying to outdo one another by offering the grimmest description of events. They link the malicious activities of global revisionists – such as China and Russia – with public and political changes taking place in Western countries. They claim that all of this together, which is probably coordinated through collusion, may destroy the liberal world order and plunge the world into the bloody chaos of bygone times. The break with the INF treaty and the entire system ...


The Day the United Nations Ceased to Exist

... Russia blocked US and British resolutions on enforcing peace on Damascus in the UN Security Council nine times. Eventually, the Western countries accused Moscow of deliberately subverting the Security Council work. Quoting UN General Assembly Resolution ... ... commitments. Ivan Timofeev: Unwanted Ally? Russia and the Future of the Anti-Terrorist Coalition The Big Three – Russia, the US and China – resolutely rejected the ultimatum but this proposal quickly won the support of the vast majority of UN members.
