Russia in the World

The Orientation of World Political Power Moves Inexorably Eastward


Vladivostok recently hosted the Eurasian Economic Forum where it was addressed by Russia’s president Vladimir Putin. Vladivostok itself is an important centre of development in the Russian Far East and therefore appropriate as the host of the conference whose theme centred on the “path to a multipolar world.” The conference…

A New System of International Relationships is Developing and it is to be Welcomed


One of the most interesting developments in recent years has been the decline in the political and economic importance of Europe. This trend can be traced back to the 1960s when the European powers were forced to give up their colonial holdings, in Africa, Asia and Latin America. This was most marked for Britain and France…

US Dependence on Russian Uranium and Sanctions Policies


The energy crisis, exacerbated in recent months by Washington’s anti-Russian sanctions policy, is perhaps the worst such crisis since 1973, when Arab countries imposed an oil embargo to protest Western support for Israel in the Yom Kippur War. It has affected all Western states by now. While the search for new energy sources and improvements to existing relatively…

Integration Processes Developing within the EAEU


On August 25-26, a meeting of the heads of government of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) countries was held in Cholpon-Ata (Kyrgyz Republic), that served as a testament to the successful development of the integration processes of the member countries. A total of nine truly crucial issues was discussed at the meeting of the Eurasian Intergovernmental…

A New World Order is Looming and the West Doesn’t Like It


On Tuesday of last week the Russian president Vladimir Putin addressed the 10th Moscow Conference on International Security. The meeting was attended by a large number of delegates from what are commonly referred to as Third World countries. The western nations showed no interest in the conference and coverage in the western media was correspondingly…

The Blowback of Washington’s Geopolitics of Containment


When President Joe Biden upgraded the US policy of containment to dual containment i.e., a simultaneous containment of Russia and China via a crisis manufactured in Europe (Ukraine) and Asia (Taiwan), little did he, or his administration, know this could mark the beginning of a process that could alter the existing world order in ways never seen before since the end…

Hopeful Signs of Changes Occurring in World Balance of Power


The recent visit to Taiwan by the United States politician Nancy Pelosi was one of the most ill-judged and provocative actions by a US politician for some considerable time. The fact that the United States President Joe Biden refused the opportunity to forbid the visit also speaks volumes about the US attitude toward Taiwan and more…

War in Ukraine Triggers the End of the Unipolar World


If the West – the US and EU – planned to “isolate” Russia following the latter’s military operation in Ukraine, that plan has clearly failed. Russia was duly represented at the recently concluded ministerial meeting of the G20 in Bali, Indonesia. The fact that Indonesia, instead of bowing down to the US pressure to force Russia out of the summit, still hosted Russia…

Recent Developments With Russia and the World Point Inexorably to a New World Order


Last week there was a meeting of Russian President Putin and President Erdogan of Turkey and President Raisi of Iran in Iran’s capital Teheran. Only a short time ago a meeting of these three men, especially in Iran’s capital of Teheran, would have been unthinkable. The meeting was a measure of how much…

Western Delusion of “Isolating” Russia


For months, the West has been projecting a geopolitics of “isolating” Russia, both economically via sanctions and diplomatically via creating anti-Russia counter alliances around the world. But how is this geopolitics of “isolation” working? Five months into the Russian military operation in Ukraine, the fallout of this war – in particular the fallout…

Russia Formed a Peacekeeping Axis in Tehran


As predicted on the eve of Joe Biden’s Middle East visit and Putin’s trip to Tehran, the Russian president clearly demonstrated the significant difference between Russian and US foreign policy.  First of all, it lies in Moscow’s aspiration to create humanitarian conditions for peacebuilding that meet global requirements, while the White House has…

Russia and Turkey Fight the West’s Grain Crisis Together


As the leaders of Russia and Turkey have repeatedly pointed out, the state of Russian-Turkish relations over the last 10 years has been a real strategic breakthrough. During this period, the volume of economic ties has increased more than 30-fold and it affects completely different spheres, including food security. It was food security that was the main focus of a meeting…
