Russia-US relations 'poisoned' for decades to come – Medvedev

Russia-US relations 'poisoned' for decades to come – Medvedev | Global politics | Scoop.it
Russian PM Dmitry Medvedev thinks the recent unfriendly moves by Presidents Poroshenko and Obama effectively turn Ukraine into Russia’s potential enemy. It will also “poison” relations with the US for decades to come.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

The US is the major threat to peace and its politicians are taking decisions on the brink of lunacy and putting the world security at risk. Perhaps Russian-US relations are effectively doomed for the next decades, but Europe has to avoid that course of action and restablish quickly the healthy neighbourhood there was before the Kiev provocation.

Russia to probe media reports that Ukraine military shot down MH17

Russia to probe media reports that Ukraine military shot down MH17 | Global politics | Scoop.it
Russia’s Investigative Committee is investigating a Russian newspaper report alleging that a Ukrainian military jet shot down Malaysian Airlines passenger plane MH17 over the rebel-held eastern part of the country last summer.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

That the Ukrainians shot down the Malaysian Boeing is indisputable if you bother to analyze all the evidence, and take also into account the refusal of both Ukraine and the US to cooperate, and the Dutch denial to go public with their investigation. You have to be a willing accomplice of the crime by sticking to the NATO official version, which has no factual support, only a political and media conspiracy to parrot baseless lies.

Greece: Strangled by the euro-noose

Greece: Strangled by the euro-noose | Global politics | Scoop.it
Like a leveraged Sisyphus, the Greek economy finds itself unable to push up the hill. The increasingly toxic euro effect is precluding the chances of a meaningful Greek rebound from its great depression.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Brussels is clearly eager to draw our attention away from the eurozone which remains less a single currency zone and more the world’s largest economic edifice held together by duct tape and assorted sticking plasters. A sort of ‘Potemkin village’ of currency if you like.

BBC World Service needs more funds to compete with RT - former chief

BBC World Service needs more funds to compete with RT - former chief | Global politics | Scoop.it
The BBC World Service is “financially outgunned” and losing ground to Russia’s RT, warns the service’s ex-chief. The UK and US may be ceding their dominant position to the “Kremlin propaganda” mouthpiece with a global audience of 700 million, he said.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Ridiculous! No money will prevent the BBC or the US channels from losing ground. Their quality issue is their manipulated information and single thought they exhibit: people are in search of alternative information, and they find it on RT, which far from being "Kremlin propaganda" displays instead the highest quality whereas the Anglo-Saxon media are irritatingly monolithic and repeat the boring script of theor rulers.

‘Counterproductive’: Ukraine seeking NATO membership ‘a false solution’, says Russia

‘Counterproductive’: Ukraine seeking NATO membership ‘a false solution’, says Russia | Global politics | Scoop.it
Kiev’s latest move to become a NATO ally is counterproductive and gives rise to false hope for resolving its political crisis, Moscow said. The Ukrainian parliament voted to repeal a law that upheld the country’s non-participation in military blocks.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Under the post-coup Fascist rule Ukraine is doomed, and no posturing about an international alliance can save it. The post-coup rulers broke the constitutional balance by seizing power and excluding the southwest, Russian-speaking part of the country, so that the Crimean referendum and reunification with Russia ensued as well as rhe Novorussia turmoil. Now their failure in both politics and and economy maked then jump into the abyss and endanger the security of the whole Europe, instead of seeking good understanding with Russia and reconciliation with their own estranged people. Hopefully the members of NATO, in spite of the adventurous US leadership, find the courage to block such madness.

A former Kremlin advisor writes about the possible next moves in the Russia-West face-off over Ukraine.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

The Crimean operation, as word has it, has been accepted in the Pentagon and NATO as a brilliant piece of tactical planning, although, of course, most of the credit should go to the commanders of the naval base at Sevastopol and not the top brass in Moscow.
