Impact of Russia-Ukraine conflict on BRI projects in Central & Eastern European countries

... Group in May 2021 after its Parliament passed a resolution condemning China’s treatment of its Muslim Uighur minority, describing it as a ‘crime against humanity’ and ‘genocide.’ With the Russia-Ukraine conflict, the dynamics of the whole European region have changed. As the CEE countries are situated in the vicinity of Ukraine, their governments perceive NATO, and by extension the US, as a key security guarantor. By providing support to Ukraine against Russia, the US has consolidated its position in the region. It has rallied the European governments to stay united against foreign forces, including Russia ...

Europe and the Atomic Bomb

... administration in the United States rejects such isolationism; on the contrary, it demonstrates in every possible way the desire to keep Europe as the main overseas base for its foreign policy. The determination to continue such a line should convince the Europeans of the assurances that the United States will “fight for every inch of NATO territory” and large-scale participation in supplying weapons to the authorities in Kiev. However, this has not yet been accompanied by a desire or the ability to really take responsibility for the consequences of the behaviour of the Europeans ...


Threading the Needle: Turkey’s East-West Balancing Act

... avoid falling entirely into their orbit.Source:  Türkiye’nin İstiklal Gazetesi The implementation of this is interesting: a NATO member state that is host to U.S. nuclear weapons while it purchases weapon systems from Russia at the same time. This is ... ... Turkey, both to establish itself as a major independent regional player and to maintain its essential trade ties with Russia, the EU, and the U.S. The ongoing confrontation in Ukraine is perhaps the biggest test of this balance yet, but Turkey seems to have ...


We are at war with the West. The European security order is illegitimate

... opinion as I am». D enazification is what Ukraine seems to have proven by electing a Jewish president. Demilitarization is the opposite of what Mr. Putin has achieved, as this attack led Ukraine to get heavy weaponry from the West. Plus, Germany and the EU are rearming too, NATO has moved troops closer to Russia’s borders, Western sanctions are now much tighter, while Europe and the US got closer together and Russia is becoming financially isolated. Would you say Putin’s military operation is proving a success, so far?...


War of European Integration

... battlefield” made many observers in Russia reflect on what, in fact, European integration is now, and in what direction we can expect its further development amid the new conditions. And it would probably be an oversimplification to believe that the European Union has now turned into an “economic department of NATO”, performing only auxiliary functions in relation to the bloc, which is the central instrument of US policy in the western part of Eurasia. First of all, because the future of this association seems to be no less diverse than the prospects of all,...

Forcing the Correct Choice: Deterring Right-Wing Radicals and Preventing Threats to Nuclear Facilities in Ukraine

... Zelensky’s declarations, instead of being statecraft aimed at deescalating the crisis, practically give open access to the country for foreign terrorists, criminals, and mercenaries. This is the man recently given a standing ovation online by the European Union Parliament? This is the leader of Ukraine, which is now the epicenter of NATO’s assertive advance to the East with obvious disregard for Russia’s national interests and security? Russia is meant to ignore this reality as if it means nothing? Would America do nothing if the Prime Minister of Canada behaved in the same way?...


The Continuing Obsession with Russia

... unity and an independent European approach towards Moscow. A contemporary example of this obsession comes from the British Defence Secretary, Hoon, in 2002: ‘NATO is and will be the only organisation for collective defence in Europe.’11 The weaker European cohesion, the better for NATO, which explains why the UK and US heavily supported EU enlargement, in the expectation that the more unwieldy the European Union, the more likely it would be that Brussels would follow NATO/US policy towards Russia, particularly with the support ...

Discussing the present situation in Europe, our colleagues from the United States, NATO and the European Union make constant appeals for ‘de-escalation’ and call on Russia to ‘choose a path of diplomacy’. We want to remind: we have been moving along that path for decades. The key milestones, such as the documents of the Istanbul and Astana ...
