​МИД РФ: В случае, если новые санкции ЕС будут приняты, реакция со стороны РФ, безусловно, последует | Global politics | Scoop.it
В Москве обратили внимание на опубликованное в Брюсселе совместное письмо Председателя Европейского совета Хермана ван Ромпея и Председателя Европейской комиссии Баррозу по ограничительным мерам в отношении России. В российском МИДе считают, что руководство ЕС по-прежнему блуждает в политическом «зазеркалье» и «фактически посылает сигнал прямой поддержки «партии войны» в Киеве. В случае, если новые санкции ЕС будут приняты, реакция со стороны РФ, безусловно, последует, заявляют в Москве.

OpEdNews Article: Article: Will NATO liberate Jihadistan?

OpEdNews Article: Article: Will NATO liberate Jihadistan? | Global politics | Scoop.it
NATO liberating Jihadistan? The Pentagon couldn't care less. The Pentagon wants eternal GWOT. US Think Tankland is ecstatic at NATO finding a "renewed purpose" and its long-term survival now assured by a "unifying threat." Translation: Russia.
Enrique Ferro's insight:


Now compare the astonishing combined NATO military budget of US$900 billion (75% of all expenses monopolized by the US) with only $80 billion for Russia. Yet Moscow is the "threat."

The West Paves The Road To War With Lies -- Paul Craig Roberts - PaulCraigRoberts.org

The West Paves The Road To War With Lies -- Paul Craig Roberts - PaulCraigRoberts.org | Global politics | Scoop.it
The West Paves The Road To War With Lies Paul Craig Roberts Official statements from the Russian government indicate that the president and foreign ministe
Enrique Ferro's insight:

For example, the socialist president of France has followed Washington’s orders and refused to deliver a ship that it owes to Russia under contract. The news reports are so incompetent that they do not say whether Russia has paid for the ship or whether payment was awaiting completion. If Russia has not already paid, then the failure to deliver will harm whoever financed the construction of the ship. If Russia has paid, then the idiot French president has placed France in violation of a contract and under international law France is subject to heavy financial penalties.

It is not clear how this hurts Russia. It is Russia’s strategic nuclear force that the West has to fear, not a helicopter carrier. What Hollande has taught Russia is not to do business with France or any country in NATO.

‘EU politicians know that sanctions are a shot in their own foot’

‘EU politicians know that sanctions are a shot in their own foot’ | Global politics | Scoop.it
EU-Russian trade and contracts is not a small thing, so if there is a break down all of Europe could go down the drain and into a recession, economic analyst Michael Mross told RT.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

All sanctions that we saw so far are a shot in our own foot, and all these politicians know this. We are here in Europe, especially in the eurozone, already in recession, in depression, and one thing that we do not need is a problem with Russia, because Russia for us is a huge market, we can do a lot of business.

​‘Lack of communication between US and Russia makes the world more dangerous’

​‘Lack of communication between US and Russia makes the world more dangerous’ | Global politics | Scoop.it
With peace in Ukraine seemingly close, it is time for Russia and NATO to set new parameters to ensure the second conflict caused by their differences in six years, is the last.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

The biggest obstacle is that Western leaders, apparently, want Putin to apologize for events in Ukraine and to return Crimea, against the will of its people, to Ukraine. It is clear that the Russian President has no intention of either and that he believes NATO created the problem by encouraging the Maidan protests, which led to the overthrow of the country’s – democratically elected – previous government.
