RUSSIA TO DRAFT NEW FOREIGN POLICY STRATEGY: EMPHASIS? MULTI-POLARISM

RUSSIA TO DRAFT NEW FOREIGN POLICY STRATEGY: EMPHASIS? MULTI-POLARISM

In the light of yesterday's blog about Russian sleeper cells in Europe, Mr. V.T. shared this article on Russia's attempts to reformulate its general foreign policy agendas, and it's worth passing along, for Russia has been very busy on the world stage lately (as we'll also see tomorrow). This is from Russia's Sputnik English language online magazine, so bear that in mind as you assess what it is saying:

Putin Instructs Foreign Ministry to Develop New Foreign Policy Framework

There's two key paragraphs in this short article, and they are huge with implications:

The new doctrinal document will reflect the fact that the world is transitioning to a new, polycentric architecture in world politics, Lavrov said, and "should ideally be based on the interaction of the leading centers of power in the interests of the collective solutions to global problems."

"This vision is shared by many countries, although, as in all previous stages in history, nothing comes automatically in international affairs, and there is no guarantee that a positive vector will prevail," the minister emphasized. (Emphasis added)

Lavrov's meaning here is clear: the world of American unipolarism is over, and any realistic Russian foreign policy has to reflect not only that fact, but the fact that it is also no longer a bi-polar world either, and that Russia should not attempt to reconstruct it. Key to this reading of the new doctrine is Mr. Lavrov's reference to the "leading centers of power" and "collective solutions to global problems."  I suspect that what is being said is not only the obvious, namely, that in the multipolar world of today, the centers of power are not just London and Washington, but Brasilia, New Delhi, Tokyo, Beijing and so on, and, what is not being stated but implied: Brussels, as representative of the Paris-Berlin axis, so to speak. The hidden implication here is the historical reference, which I alluded to in yesterday's blog with my mention of Tsar Alexander I's role in the post-Napoleonic, Congress of Vienna world, when "collective action" and Great Power Realpolitik created a more or less stable order that lasted until the outbreak of World War One. To be sure, there were wars, but the unique thing about this period is that these wars were, so to speak, not allowed to develop into world wars, which each of them could easily have done.  I strongly suspect that this precedent is what is in the back of Mr. Lavrov's mind in these statements.

And with that, we come to my high octane speculation: for by mentioning the Congress of Vienna and Russia's role, which Mr. Lavrov would be more than familiar with, I suspect that not only is the Russian document a direct attack on the whole idea of the post-9/11 unipolar-American doctrine, but also a quiet and implicit invitation to Europe to take a more assertive role in international affairs, in other words, one not so compliantly serving American interests, but more directly, Europe's. And this, in the long run, can only be good for Russia, which has, as we all know, been trying to "pivot to the East," but so long as Europe remains unstable and an American puppet, it cannot do so.

Time will tell, of course, what this reevaluation of Russia's foreign policy doctrine and objectives will mean, but if these brief remarks in the Sputnik article are any indicator, they will be very far reaching, for in the final analysis, what Mr. Lavrov is also saying is that the unipolar corporate-run world of the West's globalists is also a dystopian vision whose days are over.

See yhou on the flip side...

  1. Well, say what you will but the Russians are crafting a new Foreign Policy Framework because they misunderestimated (HT GWBush) just how rabid and insane the ZioCons who have captured the West truly are.

    Essentially, they’re saying, “These people are insane, all they want is hegemony and failing that, war. So join us in a world where nation-states act in their own interests, not as part of the ZioCon NWO, which is nothing more than a reboot of the Roman Empire, this time with high tech surveillance.

    1. There is a scene in an episode of the science fiction television series,’Firefly’, where a gangster thug is in-the-face of ship captain Mal Reynolds. This thug is boasting and roaring that Mal should watch his back, because the thug is going to kill him sometime in the near future. Without a word, Mal knocks the thug backwards into Serenity’s lift engine, shredding him.

      basta, somehow this scene lept into my brain shortly after reading your Comment…

      1. so you’re saying long term (and maybe short as well) that putin’s a strawman put up by rothschilds to hegelian dialect for illuminati/bonesman/mason oligarchs?

        1. Pellevoisin: Happy sigh, or disgusted sigh?

          ZDB: Was your question to goshawks or basta? (I will hold off on trusting Putin until he ‘takes out’ the Russian Fed…)

          1. i guess bodovyas.
            and yeh right. that’s right on the money – get it? takes out russia’s fed? right on the money?

            yeh well. case in point of what i ranted on joseph’s blog from couple days ago – the one i sent ya systema videos.

            if nothin else mr global is succeeding in making me stand back and wonder what the heck he’s doing. is this like the fox acting the fool to the bunny to make it curious enough to come closer?

        2. “so you’re saying long term (and maybe short as well) that putin’s a strawman put up by rothschilds to hegelian dialect for illuminati/bonesman/mason oligarchs?”

          No, not at all, and I do not believe that, but see that as just more disinfo to muddy the waters and further conflict opinion on just what’s going on.
          I look at Russia as an outlier, they escaped the Zio noose by a hair when Putin stepped in and tossed the Rothschild-backed oligarchs out who bought up the country’s resource wealth for a song after the collapse of the USSR. He is a nationalist and clearly looks out for Russia’s national interest and is not a servant of the international banksters and their cabal of corporate grifters. He brought Russia back from the brink, and he is playing a masterful hand in foreign affairs but it is from a position of weakness. He is extremely intelligent and by every indication a Christian, and one only need to note that the Russian government has seen to the restoration of well over 20,000 churches, monasteries and religious sites in Russia. He has a stratospheric approval rating and a friend who visited recently reported that he is already considered on a par with Peter and Catherine “the Great” as an epochal figure in Russian history.

          This is defintely not the agenda of an NWO stooge. Crlearly, he sees that religion, or rather the morality underlying it, is an essential element underpinning a healthy society. I would not be surprised if in private he would wish to pour salt on all Bolshevik and Trotskyist shrines. So no, I just can’t see him as a sleeper; the Syrian intervention alone should have answered that–showing up the whole lot to the world for what they are.

          1. late as this comment is, i’ll forward it to joseph’s email as well

            jpf,
            can we dig all dig deeper on putin? given how he came to power, it’s hard for me to see him as a serious contender to the rothschild oligarchy. he has been, is still and looks to be too in bed with western criminals like kissinger et al. his marketing (and russia’s) is clearly that he’s a good strong clever religious boy. given how harshly and completely all the nation states have been overrun by rothschild financed, organized and executed revolutions for centuries, it’s a tad implausible that one slipped through the cracks and is going to take back planetary resources in any meaningful way from venetian banksters.

            this seems the worlds latest best hope. and implausible at best. kinda makes me think it’s another ploy and chapter straight out of revelations dogma about gog and magog and russia rising to give the world hope.

  2. JPF: “…I suspect that not only is the Russian document a direct attack on the whole idea of the post-9/11 unipolar-American doctrine…”

    In terms of ‘unipolar-American doctrine’, The Saker talks about “Atlantic Integrationists” furthering that cause within Russia. (He calls Putin’s allies “Eurasian Sovereignists”.) He believes a ‘showdown’ is coming soon between the two groups:

    “Is Putin preparing a governmental purge?”

  3. Hope very much you are on the right track. For the moment in my workspace I very much see implemented the corporate-run (fascist) everything for profit model overstepping all moral boundaries.

    Working in the non profit sector (hospital) this way is taxing my morals to the limit to stay human and not get repremanded in the proces.

  4. Although they would like to frame the ruling class in the best light possible; let’s face it: the ruling, class to date, only has their interest at heart; specifically, the metaphorical 1%.
    The frame must reflect the reality that the living planet Earth is being threatened by the current corporate death model that is eating up humanity, life, and the environments supportive of most form of the current web of life that constitute the biosphere of our mother Earth.
    It has become the proverbial: life or death frame of an Earthling’s policy – living today.

  5. The CSA never really bothered to consolidate itself culturally. Before embarking on their imperial adventures Worldwide. It instead has considerate it’s duty to destroy every culture and civilization on this planet Russia and China are trying to prevent such a disaster.
