Two Years Later, Poroshenko No Closer to Solving Ukraine's Problems

Two Years Later, Poroshenko No Closer to Solving Ukraine's Problems | Global politics | Scoop.it
Having failed with its economic and political reforms, Ukraine's current leadership is triggering deep concerns in the West. At the same time, Kiev's inability to make the country's oligarchical system more transparent and law-based is only adding fuel to the fire.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Former Soviet nomenclature has formed insular power clans in Ukraine after the collapse of the Soviet Union. According to the analyst, repeated attempts to shift toward a more transparent and democratic system have so far failed. Believe it or not, the second Maidan, to some extent, has brought 'Komsomol United' back to power.

Europeans in Rebellion Against US Russophobic War Agenda

Europeans in Rebellion Against US Russophobic War Agenda | Global politics | Scoop.it
A significant crack has been unexpectedly opened in the wall of Europe’s disciplined obedience to the United States. I’m not only referring to the possible long-term consequences for U.S.-European relations in the wake of Britain’s decision to leave the European Union, but the unlikely blow against Washington’s information war on Moscow delivered by Germany’s foreign minister, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, who a week ago shockingly accused the North Atlantic Treaty Organization of “war-mongering” against Russia.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
In his memoirs Harry Truman admitted that false fear of Russia was the “tragedy and shame of our time” during the Cold War that he had much to do with in part to revive the U.S. post-war economy with military spending. George Kennan, the State Department official who advised a non-military containment of the Soviet Union, conceded as early as 1947 that Soviet moves in Eastern Europe were defensive and constituted no threat. In the 1990s, Kennan also decried NATO’s expansion towards Russia’s borders.

Russia Must Prepare Itself Now for a Clinton Presidency

Russia Must Prepare Itself Now for a Clinton Presidency | Global politics | Scoop.it
Hillary Clinton is not Barack Obama, who, in spite of all his clearly non-pacifist actions, actually did a lot to mitigate his country’s negative image as an aggressive player on the world stage: the withdrawal of troops from Iraq and Afghanistan, his refusal to conduct bombing operations in Syria in 2014, his unwillingness to participate in a NATO-GCC ground operation in Libya, his rejection of direct military intervention in the Yemeni conflict, the deal on the Iranian nuclear program, his declaration of willingness to reset relations with Moscow and his successful campaign to normalize relations with Cuba and Vietnam.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Hillary Clinton is well known for her hostile stance, and some may even call it aggression, towards Russia, Syria, Iraq and Iran, and this is down to the fact that she is unable to differentiate between pragmatism and weakness. She doesn’t seek out compromise. On the contrary, she is prepared to act firmly and decisively. Her position and practical actions on Libya five years ago are a vivid example. In addition, there is the fact that in the Middle East, she is focused on Saudi Arabia and Qatar. It is no secret that they gave her lavish gifts of jewellery back when she was the Secretary of State during Barack Obama’s first presidential term.

Insignificance Divided by Zero

Insignificance Divided by Zero | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:
But also these authorities are so retarded that they don't even know that to yell in an almost entirely Russian city "Moskals on knives!" is not the best way to demonstrate "Odessa's patriotism." In contrary, what appears very clear is that this stinking spirit coming from somewhere is foreign and is a stranger for the inhabitants of Odessa.

mericans rescued from the facility in Benghazi were saved by Gaddafi loyalists — not the Libyan government or the militia group contractually obligated to provide security, the final report from the House Select Committee on Benghazi reveals.After lethal mortar attacks, a special operator in Benghazi testified that: “We decided that the situation we had was untenable to stay at the compound. We didn’t have enough shooters and there were too many wounded, and we were definitely going to lose our State Department wounded if we had stayed there much longer.”
