The World After the Hegemony

..., this required the appearance of formal signs of justice in the form of international law as well as participation in the highest body of the UN, the Security Council (UNSC), of Russia and China, which are immanently hostile to the interests of the USA and Europe.

Therefore,...


G20: Does Multilateralism Have a Chance?

... fragmentation, with various interest groups covering for themselves without taking into account the interests of all participants. The organisation worked exactly as long as its decisions brought benefits primarily to the developed countries like the USA and Europe. Similar stories can be told about almost any of the multilateral institutions, where the membership of the “older” states of the “golden billion” is combined with the rest of the world. Suffice it to recall that already in 2018, for the ...


The Erosion and Undermining of the Transatlantic Relationship

... Nord Stream international gas pipeline, then this extraordinary event can be a good illustration of the pressure under which the phenomenon of the Transatlantic relationship is. This unique international community, uniting the United States and Western Europe, came into being as a result of World War II. It has always been based on two factors. First, the unconditional power dominance of America over its allies in all components of the total power capabilities of the state: military, economic and ideological....


Factors Influencing the World Order's Structure

... dominant military and economic force. Great powers like the United States, Russia, China and India, are not cooperating. They never shared the same world order view (let alone their respective domestic ones). So far, the United States and several Western European countries are pursuing a revolutionary policy about the outside world and constitute the biggest challenge to the prospects of international order stability. Such states embarked on a disquieting path of breakthrough changes in fundamental issues ...


Russia’s Turn to the East: Between Choice and Necessity

... bring significant material benefits, and that you just need to try, ran into a completely objective obstacle. There was no need to try in dealing with the West; material benefits came by themselves, relying on 300 years of relations with the largest European partners. As a result, by 2019, about 80 percent of investments in the Far East were of domestic origin. It is possible that precisely because of its limited economy, the “turn to the East” strategy in its concrete expression did not go beyond ...


Labour Staging a Comeback

... victories across the continent, including most recently and for the first time in decades in Colombia. In the US President Biden vowed to create a taskforce to boost union membership and staked a claim to being America’s most pro-union president . In the EU, discussions have been undertaken on the possibility of adopting a minimum threshold for collective contract coverage . There are also drivers emerging that may underpin a rising trend in wages and social security transfers. In the corporate world,...


What Is a Sovereign State?

... complete sovereignty. The last century was marked by three waves of emergence of states whose ability to survive independently in a chaotic system was unproven. The first set of these includes the countries that became the product of the collapse of European empires as a result of the First World War. At that time, practically all the countries of the Middle East and North Africa, the former possessions of the Austrian, German and Russian empires in Eastern Europe and the Balkans, arose. The only ...


Kissinger and the Fight for Russia

... by extremely dangerous situations In the event that the acute phase of the conflict in Ukraine really turns out to be very long, which, apparently, is the case, then the elementary needs of survival will force Russia to get rid of what binds it to Europe, Valdai Club Programme Director Timofei Bordachev. In the event that the growing conflict in and around Ukraine does not lead to irreparable consequences on a global scale in the near future, its most important result will be a fundamental demarcation ...


Europe and the Atomic Bomb

... reserved with regard to taking into account the interests of allies in their own strategic planning. This is because the survival of allies and their ability to provide armed support is not a prerequisite for the survival of a country with several thousand nuclear warheads. In the case of the United States, the matter is complicated by its geopolitical position, in which even a general military catastrophe in Europe will not cause even indirect damage to American territory. Not to mention the more local and tactical use of nuclear weapons by the enemy of the Europeans, which seems to be the most likely possibility, amid modern conditions. Moreover, the US ...


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

... legitimate? «We should not recognize the order that was built against Russia. We tried to integrate in it but we saw it was a Versailles system number 2. I wrote that we had to destroy it. Not by force, but through constructive destruction, through refusal to participate in it. But after the last demand to stop NATO was again rejected, it was decided to use force». So the overall goal of this war is to overturn the presence of NATO in central and eastern European countries? «We see that most of the institutions are, in our view, one-sided and illegitimate. They are threatening Russia and Eastern Europe. We wanted fair peace, but the greed and stupidity of the Americans and the short-sightedness of the ...
