Soros, McCain, why is the world forced to endure the insanity of such senile warmongering people? Why don't they just enjoy their old age and leave the rest live their living?

Fort Russ: Ukraine's Nuclear Dreams

Fort Russ: Ukraine's Nuclear Dreams | Global politics | Scoop.it
The intent may not be an actual device--what would you do with one, anyway? Besides, leaving NPT in order to go nuclear places you squarely in the same category as North Korea, which is presumably something Ukraine's leaders are aware of. The real reason for the nuclear saber-rattling is most likely extortion--give us money, or else we might do something you really don't like.

Fort Russ: IMF Mission to Kiev Aftermath

Fort Russ: IMF Mission to Kiev Aftermath | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

The whole IMF/default farce provides a few hints as to the true state of relations between Poroshenko and Western leaders. I think it's entirely too simplistic to say he is controlled by the West, or even that he takes orders from them. No, Poroshenko is very much his own person who, like everyone else, responds to incentives. As a political leader, I think he is someone of limited intelligence but considerable cunning, and the problem with that combination is that it may leave you oblivious to the fact that maybe you are dealing with people smarter than yourself. Not necessarily in Ukraine (in that little stagnant pool he is one of the sharpest knives in the drawer), but definitely on the global scale. So tactics he used so effectively domestically are beginning to backfire on him internationally.

Fort Russ: Movie of the Week: "And Quiet Flows the Don"

Fort Russ: Movie of the Week: "And Quiet Flows the Don" | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Moreover, let's not forget that the Civil War and the foreign intervention are the closest historical analogies to what is currently happening in Ukraine. The task, both then and now, is to avoid alienating those who may still be won over. Because, ultimately, it's not the foreign intervention that's a decisive factor. It was not in 1919, it is not in 2015. The decisive factor is whether the peoples' on Russia's periphery feel that there's a comfortable place for them within Russia. If the answer to that question is "yes", then it doesn't matter how many NATO instructors to go Ukraine. If Russian policies toward Ukraine may seem like they are overly tentative or hesitant, almost to the point of Kremlin allowing itself to be taken advantage of, it's because it doesn't want to repeat the mistake made by the Bolsheviks in And Quiet Flows the Don.

Kudrin names condition of his return to Putin's team

Kudrin names condition of his return to Putin's team | Global politics | Scoop.it
Aleksey Kudrin who worked in the Russian government between 2000 and 2011, and was named World’s best finance minister by Euromoney Magazine, for the first time said he was ready to return to Putin’s team if the authorities agree to hold more reforms.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

He also added that he didn’t intend to get into public politics outside Vladimir Putin’s administration and government as there was no opposition party in Russia that he would care to support. This statement shows the former finance minister’s position is unchanged: in previous press interviews he blamed the opposition for lack of concrete platforms and any unity in their ranks.

Fort Russ: Foreign Minister of Transnistria, Nina Shtanski - Transnistria wants to follow in the footsteps of Crimea

Fort Russ: Foreign Minister of Transnistria, Nina Shtanski - Transnistria wants to follow in the footsteps of Crimea | Global politics | Scoop.it
The new threats before Transnistria will only speed up the process of its reunification with Russia. Transnistria has much more in common with Crimea, then a more complex and sizeable region, like Donbass, as an annexation canditate, and judging by Putin's quick reaction in Crimea, I think we will witness some more feats of Putin's diplomacy in the near future.

Fort Russ: Why Washington exiled Saakashvili to Odessa

Fort Russ: Why Washington exiled Saakashvili to Odessa | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

The faith of post-Soviet neophytes of capitalism in the absolute primacy of America is as absolute, as the faith of the adherents of totalitarian sects in their guru. They believe in spite of reason, regardless of the objective situation. They are prepared to not only commit crimes on the recommendation of Washington (ethnic cleansing in Serbian Kraina and in Kosovo, the attack on South Ossetia, a bloody coup in Kiev, the burning of people in Odessa, the military operation against the civilian population of Donbass), they are even ready to go against the objective personal interests in good confidence that "divine bosses" from the United States know best what to do. And they will definitely protect their faithful "priests".
