The Battle of Wills between the West and Russia: 

Which Side Will Win?

 

From the very beginning or emergence of the Ukraine crisis, as details of the coup emerged and Crimea was, in the eyes of the west – annexed by Russia – it became clear that we are heading to a prolonged battle.  This is one that is not just a physical war which entails much destruction but a war of wills in a conflict over the question of which side has the moral upper hand. From the very beginning, the West and Russia were speaking in opposite languages and had opposing mindsets. While the West, led by the US, accused Russia of aggression in Ukraine and pointed a finger at it for violating international law, Russia was speaking about fascists in Kiev and about an illegal coup. It became clear from the very beginning that the issue was not merely one of disagreement or division, but of a cultural war with the West attempting to prove its superiority, vis-à-vis Russia.

Russia and Turkey’s Gas Deal can Save Europe and the World

old-english-calligraphy-alphabet-the status of South Stream and the newly announced Russia-Turkey gas deal is much more than it seems.  It is primarily about putting the brakes on what has slowly been developing into the next world war.

This new deal may also represent a serious culmination of Russian, Chinese, and Iranian efforts to realign the entire bandwidth between the Adriatic Sea and India.  This has ramifications not only for the EU, Bulgaria, and Turkey, but also Syria, Egypt, Israel, Iran, China and most of Latin America.  Its effects reach far beyond the scope of this report, and includes currency wars, and military alliances.

The Ukrainian Failed State: Analysis of Phase 3

Part 6 in our series

Sunday’s election sees an increase in ‘anti-Russian’ representation in the Rada: US-backed Pravy Sektor and Svoboda pressure on the US-backed Kiev Junta corroborates a Phase 3 plan, as the Kiev Junta may resume major operations.  The US needs to create a failed state in Ukraine to advance its agenda, with Poroshenko getting caught in the middle.  Both sides vie for the 4GW advantage, while being careful to not lose site of reality from the expanding hyper-reality. 

 

A Note to Readers:  This is the 6th installment of a series of related reports on the real underlying methods and framework which characterize the Ukrainian civil war.  These are thorough in exploring and explaining, in as full a way as possible, the most relevant factors which operate upon this phenomenon.  Like our previous works on the subject, this report is approximately 50 pages at about 15,500 words.  In addition to these six reports, there are another dozen or so shorter articles on the subject to be found on our site, as well as about two dozen interviews and podcasts, which can be found either in the multimedia section or embedded in the shorter articles where indicated.  Being familiar with our past reports makes this report more flexible.  A reader is then able to read each chapter as a stand-alone article

 

old-english-calligraphy-alphabet-the election of Sunday, October 26th, was called by Poroshenko to ostensibly push the government into an even further anti-Russian position.  On the face of it, the election aimed to escalate what has been termed a ‘lustration’ process [1]. This fits well into the common narrative, being that Poroshenko is directly controlled by the US to push against Russia.  While this is true, there is also another more complex dynamic unfolding, which will be explored in this report.
