Three institutions representing great supranational powers of the Western world, the European Parliament, NATO and the G7, are meeting in Brussels to receive the President of the United States. These are all extraordinary meetings demanded by this country to deal with the conflict in Ukraine, but above all to ensure the encirclement of the Russian Federation.
The diligence and discipline with which these institutions have acted is noteworthy. But it is not at all strange if we take into account that, in fact, almost all the members of these institutions are NATO members.
The European Council brings together most of the European countries and in turn almost all of them belong to NATO, it being understood that this is a consultative body, made up of the Heads of State and Government, but that decisions are taken by the European Commission, i.e. it is a good scenario but nothing more.
NATO has a summit scheduled for June 29-30 in Madrid. To hold an extraordinary summit now on the conflict in Ukraine, which is neither a member country of the EU nor of NATO, shows that it is in fact a NATO conflict with the Russian Federation.
The G7 groups the most select of the Western powers: the US, UK, Canada, Germany, France, Italy and Japan, and from which Russia left in 2014, after the coup d’état in Ukraine. At this moment this group of countries, which pretend to lead the world, have announced that they will “follow” Biden and will break the agreement of “related trade deal” they have with Russia, at the same time they will close its financing in the international economic institutions.
The military harassment of the Russian Federation, integrating 13 Eastern European countries into NATO, most of them following the manual of the color revolutions, and promoting a coup d’état and a civil war in Ukraine to eliminate the Russian population, is a strategy aimed at weakening Russia (a huge country) to break it up and appropriate its resources, a “dream” that the British Nazi Winston Churchill enunciated as: “To impose on Russia the will of the USA and the British Empire”.
To achieve that goal requires weakening that country and the path being followed is the classic imperialist handbook: Criminalize, Isolate, Destroy. In order to follow this path, it has been necessary to sacrifice a pawn: Ukraine and to subdue Europe so that it renounces its interests and accepts the role assigned to it by the Anglo-Saxon axis.
The criminalization of Russia begins at the very moment when it starts the process of reconstruction of its national identity and ceases to be fully subjected to the will of the West. Criminalization has spread from the political to the institutional, academic, cultural and media spheres, an extensive network that has worked for years to build an image of the Russian Federation that would turn it into a criminal entity that should be eliminated. Undoubtedly, this phase has been successfully completed in the NATO environment and continues to develop, fueled by war propaganda.
The isolation process is more complex because it requires breaking the ties of good neighborliness and cooperation already established; trade between the Russian Federation and Europe has developed despite the criminalization campaign, especially in the field of energy, with joint projects of common interest as important as the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline.
US and NATO military harassment and sanctions against the Russian Federation have always been oriented in the same direction. The clearest example is that of NS2, systematically boycotted by the USA and today completed; but the intention is that it should never become operational, in spite of the investment made by Europe and the benefits it would bring.
Everything seems to indicate that Europe’s isolation of Russia will be effective to a large extent and that Russophobia will remain for a long time, although with all the transformations that the capitalist reordering will entail, it is difficult to venture scenarios in the medium and long term.
The US intends that this isolation be seconded by most of the countries and has not hesitated to threaten those who do not do so. Jake Sullivan, Biden’s national security advisor, said: “we do not want any country to compensate Russia for its losses”; Ned Price, US State Department spokesman, said that “every country in the world should speak clearly and unambiguously”.
Despite these public threats and those made country by country, the responses have not met the expectations of the White House, especially in the case of China. US and Chinese representatives met for 8 hours in an attempt to get China to join in the condemnation, but China has insisted on its commitment to peace, understanding of Russian action and that it will not participate in sanctions.
Moreover, in this short period of time, cracks have appeared in the cultural ideological discourse contained in the Western war propaganda, cracks through which the contradictions, inconsistencies, hypocrisy and superlative cynicism contained in the Western monochord discourse emerge.
The difference in the treatment of Ukrainian refugees, compared to those of other origins, especially Africans, reveals not only a biased morality, but also a staging for propaganda purposes. Oxfam has recently denounced that assistance funds to other countries are being diverted to Ukraine; 50% in East Timor and Burkina Faso, 70% in West Africa and others; in this dynamic, if additional budgets are not approved, it is estimated that Ukraine will receive 40% of the total budget already allocated. The Danish Ministry of Development put it this way: “difficult decisions, make changes and priorities” “retract or cancel programs from other crises”. Oxfam, referring to Yemen, Syria and West Africa says: “they should not be penalized nor can they pay a price for our obligation to care for the people of Ukraine” and they add: “we refuse to make a choice between helping a Ukrainian refugee or a starving Somali farmer”. It is difficult to ignore the scenes of generosity towards Ukrainian refugees in the Spanish state without recalling the recent beating of a sub-Saharan refugee by five policemen, for daring to jump the fence of Melilla.
On the other hand many sectors of the population suffer an unbearable situation due to the rise in prices, especially energy, fuel and food, rises that already started in previous years. The question is that if it is not only because of the war, why is it so, or if it is because of the war because we feed it by spending resources on weapons instead of stopping it or at least not participating in it.
Less well known is the data on how healthy the financial world is with the war; global equities are up 1% and the S&P is up 1.6%; last week, Wall Streat declared the biggest gains since 2020. However it does not seem that the war, by itself, will improve the economy, Zoltan Pozsar advisor to Credit Suisse has stated that “when the (Ukraine) crisis is over, the US dollar should be much weaker and, conversely, the renminbi (yuan) much stronger.”
What the population does not yet understand, is the need for war to feed the interests of the elites, the need for NATO to continue to expand its dominance around the world, the need to remove the obstacles that exist in that path, and that those obstacles can only be removed through the use of violence. NATO does not offer security, it offers profits to the military industrial complex, and domination and plunder over everything that is not already dominated.
Nor is it understood that in October 2018 a new crisis emerged in the Western world, that its dimension and consequences were qualified by the major economic centers: Federal Reserve, IMF, European Central Bank, as systemic, structural and long-term,; that shortly afterwards the Davos Forum announced the Great Reset, the beginning of a new cycle that would profoundly change the functioning of the economy in order to continue to feed the interests of the elites. It was not hidden that this would require “a great effort” on the part of the population; one of the first examples has been the reorganization of the banking system, which has resulted in 18,000 layoffs, the work being taken over by the users and a practically null service.
None of this is unrelated to the NATO-induced conflict in Ukraine. The Russian Federation has the resources that Europe needs, but this strengthens both to the detriment of the USA and the UK, which lose influence in the area, strengthens Russia and deprives them of enormous profits by keeping the hydrocarbon business. A good move to face the Great Reset.
Only if we take into account all the elements of this plot, we will be able to successfully face the threats of the next period and we will be able to understand the reasons and objectives of the emperor’s meetings with his European proconsuls. In this sense we can point out as objectives:
- Consolidate unity under US mandate through NATO.
- To verify Europe’s submission to the expansionist and warmongering strategy of the USA.
- To consolidate the severance of Europe’s ties with the Russian Federation and to lay the foundations for a lasting severance.
- To materialize the substitution of Russian energy supplies to Europe by others supplied directly by the US or managed by them.
- To consolidate the encirclement of the Russian Federation in the long term.
- Open up a permanent war space in Ukraine through third countries, presumably Poland and Lithuania.
- Introduce paramilitary forces to unleash terror in the area and inside the Russian Federation.
- Any other action to perpetuate the war and maintain a permanent state of tension to help justify the hardships of the coming period.
- To try to perpetuate the unity of the Western bloc under NATO discipline.
However, the isolation of the Russian Federation is incomplete, especially because it will mean a notable increase in exchanges with China, which will make both of them stronger. And not only China: also India, Pakistan (which is planning an oil pipeline from Russia) and even the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, which refuse to increase oil production on US orders and are already negotiating the use of the yuan, instead of dollars, for their exchanges.
Russia has proven to be loyal to its partners and these, for the most part, refuse to accept the pressure to adopt sanctions. In Africa, Latin America and the Middle East, very few countries are willing to apply them. Canada is backing away from imposing sanctions. In total, the countries aggressors against Russia, the so-called “international community”, represent little more than 11% of the world’s population.
The consequence of all this is the weakening of the dollar and the euro and the extension of the boomerang effect of the “sanctions”: devaluation, inflation, shortages and economic contraction in the West.
