‘The U.S. is extremely concerned by Russia’s growing influence within Eastern Europe’


In 2006, three months after the Cuban Missile Crisis the United States secretly removed all its nuclear missiles from Turkey and Italy.

On September 17th, 2009, U.S. President Barack Obama announced that he will be offering a new missile defense system in Eastern Europe, discontinuing the system set up by President George W. Bush. 

The Eastern Europe missile system “has caused an increase in tensions between NATO and the Russian Government,” a UK House of Commons Library paper noted. The system “would consist of missiles based on US warships based in the Mediterranean ”, the paper added. 

Three years later, the system is augmented by land-based missiles based in Romania and Poland and a radar system based in Turkey.

Actually, US and NATO deploy missile ‘defense’ systems in Turkey and Eastern Europe.

Moscow’s policy on Syria has not changed


Moscow‘s policy on Syria has not changed (Russia’s FM)

14 December 2012

MOSCOW (TAP) – The Russian Foreign Ministry on Friday downplayed earlier comments made by the ministry’s Deputy Head in which he suggested that the Syrian opposition could win the civil war raging in the country.

The ministry said Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov had not made any statements or conducted “special interviews” with journalists over the past few days regarding Syria.

The Syrian conflict was discussed at a roundtable in Moscow on Thursday, attended by Bogdanov, where speakers cited the Syrian opposition’s statements about their inevitable victory, the Ministry explained in the carefully worded statement.

The Foreign Ministry said that Bogdanov had reiterated Russia’s position: Moscow wants to see a political solution to the crisis in Syria.

Lavrov: Armed Groups in Syria Violate International Law and Practice Terrorism and the West Deals with Double-Standards

MOSCOW, (SANA) – Russian Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov, criticized the western double-standard stance on terrorism, considering that “it is disappointing that our western partners at the Security Council reject condemning the terrorist attacks in Syria,” and tend to divide terrorists into bad and acceptable terrorists, which would lead to putting the world in a very dangerous situation.

In an interview with Russia Today channel, which is to be broadcast next Monday, Lavrov expressed regret over the stances announced by many external players on Syria “which still do not reflect a sincere interest in halting violence, rather they aim to achieve internal points.”

“What brings shame is that some partners get themselves occupied in directing guidance and acting like the guardians of human rights in Syria, while what is required from them is to say enough to all those who kill and try to achieve victory at the expense of human rights,” said Lavrov.

He pointed out that the armed terrorist groups in Syria are responsible for violating the international law through taking hostages and practicing terrorism.

The Russian Foreign Minister added that if the priority is to halt the violence, then a large number of international observers should be deployed in Syria and both sides should be forced to start dialogue without any preconditions, stressing that “Russia does not change regimes in the world, therefore, it will not convey the western proposals to Syria as they should be the ones to do so by themselves.”

Lavrov warned that the west is interested in changing the regime more than saving the lives of civilians.

He expressed his belief that the western countries are not resolved or insistent on military intervention in Syria, saying that “no one in the West is ready for intervention in Syria, which is why they wish that Russia and China veto UNSC resolutions contrary to what they say.”

Lavrov stressed that “it is not allowed for the Security Council, after the shameful act of our partners regarding the decision on Libya, to take decisions that have double meanings.”

NATO bombs Libyan civilians: Russian diplomacy

From: RussiaToday on 8 Jun 2011 (5 days ago)
After talks with the opposition and Colonel Gaddafi’s cousin, who was representing Tripoli, Russia’s envoy says both sides understand there’s no solution to the crisis by military means. It comes as NATO continues its intense airstrikes on the Libyan capital and dozens civilians were killed in NATO’s heaviest ever Tripoli bombardment.

Bombing of Libya: Russian, Chinese and Indian diplomacy

Libya is still bombed by NATO and the Libyan civilians are the first victims of these bombings. They are not only wounded and killed but they are also victim of the total destruction of the country as was the case with the NATO bombings of Yugoslavia which destroyed hospitals, schools, bridges, warehouses and so on.

If the U.N. and the U.N.-members will really protect the Libyan civilians, NATO has to stop its bombings and there must come an immediately ceasefire. Thereafter all the Libyan parties have to start negotiations (without foreign interference) for the rebuilding of the country. That’s the only solution.

We will contact the Russian, Chinese and Indian embassies about it.

The American president Obama and U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said some weeks ago that ‘no ground troops will be sent to Libya’. UN Chief Ban Ki-moon called on Mai 11, 2011 for a ‘Libya Cease Fire.’ They all seem to have lied because NATO admiral Stavridis said today that Libya ‘may need foreign stabilisation force’.

More and more Libyan civilians are victims of NATO-bombings.
It is time that the Russian, Chinese and Indian political leaders who condemned the NATO bombing of Libya, use their veto at the UN if they want to remain credible.
We know that the UN is not a democratic institution because it blocks all the UN resolutions critical of Israel at the request of Washington. But does that mean that the other UN members have no power? If that is the case, then the UN which cost a lot of money, can better be dismantled.
