North Korea can never trust the USA by David William Pear The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (i.e. North Korea) cannot trust the United States of America.  The US does not keep its promises, honor its treaties and obey international laws.  This is not opinion; it is the history of the US, beginning with the many broken promises and treaties with the Native Americans. The US has broken promises and treaties in every corner of the globe.  The US ignores the UN Charter, which is a treaty. It flouts international law, which is based on treaties.  The US habitually starts asymmetrical wars, which is aggression and the worst of all war crimes.  It destroys nations, leaving millions of people dead, dying, and in misery....

The ways of return in the twentieth century Martin Heidegger and Ruhollah Khomeini, although with due differences, have embodied in the last century an idea of revolution interpreted as a 'return' to an existential condition in which physical and metaphysical order were not hopelessly split. Let's analyze differences and similarities. by Daniele Perra In a letter dated 1933 addressed to Carl Schmitt to congratulate the fortune of the work The concept of the politician who came to the third edition, Martin Heidegger was delighted with the great jurist for having mentioned the Fragment 53 of Heraclitus: Conflict, of all things father, of all things king, some gods, others servants, others free men made. In addition to showing appreciation for not having left out any term of the fragment and in particular the word Basileus (king), the German philosopher admitted to have in store for years a his particular interpretation of the short Heraclitean writing: an interpretation, in his own way of viewing, intrinsically connected to the concept of Truth. At the same time, however, Heidegger revealed to Schmitt that he himself was in the midst of a conflict and that every literary project would at that time take on secondary importance....

'Turkey's choice' is not only Turkey's Turkey is gearing up for an important election that is going to take place on June 24th. Turks will choose their new President who will be in office for the next five years and they will also choose their candidates for the new 600-member Turkish Parliament. Although there is no certainty as to the percentages, many analysts agree that the Cumhur Alliance between incumbent President Erdogan's AK Party and the nationalist MHP will win a majority in the parliament and a similar result is expected for the Presidential elections. According to the Turkish election system, candidates need a minimum of 50% votes in order to be elected in the first round. President Erdogan is projected to get between 50% to 54% of the votes according to the latest poll and, it looks like the last-minute developments that will take place before the election will determine the outcome.  President Erdogan and the AK Party have been victorious in 12 elections in the span of the past 15 years and those 12 elections included five general elections, three local elections, three referendums and one presidential election. This success stems from the united front the Turkish people show under President Erdogan's leadership. When President Erdogan first stood in the Istanbul municipality elections back in 1994, he got only two million votes. In the latest referendum, his votes had reached 26 million. With every new election, more voters have rushed to his side, which proves that he has a solid, unwavering voter base. Most of those voters showed their loyalty to President Erdogan and the values he represented by pouring out on the streets on the night of the failed coup attempt on July 15, 2016....

Russians start protesting against retirement age law The Russians start to express their protests against the recent decision of the Russian government to raise the retirement age. People start taking to the streets to say their words against the reform. The first wave of protest rallies swept through Novosibirsk, Ryazan and Ukhta, fontanka.ru reports. Rallies are expected to take place in a few Siberian citifies on June 24 and July 1, even though the rules for holding public meetings and rallies in Russia have been tightened for the time of the World Cup. Thus, all types of meetings not related to sports events should be held only in places indicated by local authorities in prior agreement with the Federal Security Service. On June 14, the Russian government approved the final version of the draft law on the gradual increase of the retirement age starting from 2019. Thus, the retirement age for men will be 65 years by 2028, and 63 years for women by 2034.The Russians immediately responded to the move by filing a petition on the Change.org website with a requirement to cancel the retirement age reform. The petition has already collected more than 1.3 million signatures. Vadim Gorshenin, the chairman of the board of directors of Pravda.Ru, believes that all the talking about the fairness of the pension reform is ridiculous, because the new law is all about the exploitation of citizens by the state. In a nutshell, Mr. Gorshenin believes, the state wants to make people work until they die. "Just look at the pension allowance that the state gives Russian citizens. Let's take a look at the pension starting from 2018. The average monthly pension of 14,100 rubles ($233) gives 169,200 rubles ($2,800). Thus, it will take a citizen, who budgets himself to the minimum monthly wage, seven years just to save this amount in accordance with deductions to the Pension Fund. If the state offers the average Russian man the amount of less than 169,200 rubles for all of his lifetime work, given the average life expectancy of 65.9 years, then a question arises of who the average Russian man needs to work for all of his life," Vadim Gorshenin notes. Interestingly, rumour has it that Chechnya is not going to raise the retirement age because of many years of war that the republic had experienced in the past. According to unconfirmed reports, Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov said that the people of Chechnya had been suffering for ten years, and every Chechen in the republic had either lost their breadwinner, become disabled or is a parent of many children. In the meantime, the Russian authorities are closely watching how the general public is going to react to the most recent unpopular move of the government....

The West persistently pesters former USSR with regime changes and revolutions One must have noticed that pro-Western democracies on the territory of the former USSR tend to collapse very quickly, even though their Western preachers are always stable. This year, the governments of Kyrgyzstan, Armenia, and Georgia stepped down. Moldova and Ukraine constantly live under the threat of a sudden change of power. What makes Western democracies stable? Should other nations look up to them? On June 13, the government of Georgia resigned in the midst of mass protests as people were demanding justice in the case of the murder of 16-year-old schoolchildren. Georgian Prime Minister Georgy Kvirikashvili tried to come to the action of protest near the parliament building, but protesters started throwing bottles at him shouting "Go away!" The prime minister left, together with his government. The government of Armenian Prime Minister Serzh Sargsyan stepped down just as easily, supposedly due to intolerance of its political longevity. The Government of Kyrgyzstan was dissolved in accordance with the presidential decree, allegedly because of its efforts to establish relations with China. Strangely enough, the impoverished Baltic States with their non-citizens and the persecution of the Russian-speaking population enjoy stable existence, and we do not see any hasty regime changes there.Let's take a look at the problem from a different angle. In Germany, many want the federal government to resign over the recent murder of a 14-year-old girl (raped and strangled by Iraqi migrant). In France, one can often eyewitness street unrest, burning cars, barricades and violent clashes with the police. Most recently, protests sparked in France after the government cut social benefits. Nevertheless, neither Merkel nor Macron resign. They do not withdraw unpopular decisions either. Mexico's pro-Western government chaired by Peña Nieto is just as unshakable, even though people have been trying to oust it since 2014 after the brutal murder of 43 students who took part in anti-government demonstrations. At the same time, the leftist government of Dilma Rousseff was subjected to impeachment in Brazil only because it violated budgetary discipline. Brazil's ex-Presdient Lula was jailed for nine years for an unproven bribe in the form of a three-room apartment. Noteworthy, the judge who ran Lula's case was educated and trained in the United States.One shall assume that destabilisation and riots affect the countries that are either undesirable for Washington or problematic for Russia and other strong sovereign states (Venezuela, Hungary, China). The vassals stay in their offices even if they terrorise their own people. Valery Korovin, Director of the Center for Geopolitical Expertise, told Pravda.Ru that the toppling of power is a tool of Western political technologists in network wars, in which the West establishes strategic control over a nation or a whole region through a series of color revolutions. "The more unsteady a state, the easier it is to dismantle it and bring it under strategic control with the help of transnational external management," the political scientist said in an interview with Pravda.Ru. According to him, post-Soviet countries have never become full-fledged states - they live under the guise of statehood. It is highly important for this technology to change power as often as possible. "In Georgia, they toppled the pro-Western Shevardnadze, a champion of perestroika. Then came Gamsakhurdia - another pro-Western puppet... Shevardnadze then returned, but some time later Georgia had Saakashvili, a liberal Westerner. Saakashvili was removed from power too, and oligarch Ivanishvili took his place," Valery Korovin said. In Western countries, however, the power changes frequently too, but it happens within the framework of one and the same clans. Lyuba LulkoPravda.Ru Read article in Russian...

Livestock should always be on the table whether we eat meat or not By Dr. Berhe Tekola,Director of Animal Production and Health, Food and Agriculture Organisation In a world where competition for resources is increasingly fierce, sustainability is often seen in terms of reducing over-consumption. This is especially true when it comes to animal production, with some calling for a worldwide switch to entirely plant-based diets to reduce pressure on the environment....

The future of oil By Mark S. McGrew The future of oil is no great mystery, unless you listen to the western Major Media. The modern world would not survive without oil. Stop all oil production today and within five years, 80-90% of the world's population will be dead. These Population vs. Oil Production charts tell the tale. The blue line is population of the World and the red line is production of oil. What do these charts showing the World population growth, alongside the growth of oil production tell us? Population growth and the very survival of the Human population is dependent on the production of oil.... Pubdate: Fri, 15 Jun 2018 12:45:00 +0300

World Cup fans from all over the world celebrate football and experience misfortunes already Fans from all over the world continue coming to Russia for the World Cup. In Moscow, football fans paralyzed many pedestrian streets having arranged mass festivities there. Most fans gathered on Nikolskaya Street, which is adjacent to Red Square. Crowds of football fans gathered on Nikolskaya Street to support their national teams. Russia is welcoming fans of all ages - one can see elderly people holding hands, young people partying and even young parents with children. Light garlands above the street created a very special atmosphere of a football carnival against the background of facades of historical buildings covered with flags of the countries participating in the championship.Representatives of Latin and South America predictably turned out to be most active football fans, for whom football is a religion. Peruvians and Mexicans attracted people's attention by performing  national dances and playing traditional musical instruments. Fans from Argentina gathered the largest number of fans around themselves as they were singing the national anthem in unison, infecting everyone around with football fever. The Moscow police were behaving in a very friendly way with foreign guests, but were firmly suppressing all attempts of the latter to drink alcoholic beverages in public places. Of course, unpleasant incidents are unavoidable, and foreign football fans already appear in crime reports. In St. Petersburg, a fan from Morocco was robbed after visiting the festival of FIFA fans on Konyushennaya Square. On the way back, the man found that he lost 2,500 euros and his iPhone 7. The loss was evaluated at about 200,000 rubles. The Moroccan fan could only speak Arabic, and it took police officers a lot of time to understand what he was trying to say. On June 11, a Chinese woman reported the loss of a designer backpack and an amount of money worth 3,000 dollars. The same day, an American man addressed the police saying that he was left without cash. A 25-year-old Egyptian reported the loss of his luggage. The young man could not overcome the language barrier and resorted to the help of his friend, who could speak English. It turned out that the men forgot about their bag with tickets inside as they were stunned with views of St. Petersburg. In Kaliningrad, Nigerian football fans asked local authorities permission to bring live chickens to the stadium. The authorities had to decline. For Nigerian fans, a chicken is their mascot that they bring to every venue.  They did not specify what they needed the chickens for, although it is generally believed that African football fans usually practice various magic rituals during football matches, and chickens are widely used in Africa for sacrifice.

Trump-Kim honeymoon in Singapore may open McDonald's in Pyongyang According to US media reports, the USA-DPRK summit in Singapore was a historic meeting. The meeting of Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un has brought up the memory of the diplomatic triumph of the 36th US President Richard Nixon, who became friends with Mao Zedong in Beijing in 1972 amid the cold war between the USSR and China. The White House remains in a state of euphoria: Trump says that the outcome of the summit exceeded all expectations. Yet, many on the Capitol Hill approach the situation with a share of skepticism. In particular, Republican Senator from the State of Georgia, David Perdue, believes that "the process of eliminating the nuclear program of the DPRK will be long and indirect. In his opinion, this process will take at least several months and may last for years.Brushing all that aside, the dialogue between the United States and the DPRK may gradually lead to the creation of a trusting relationship between the two countries. So far, the leaders of the two countries have promised to visit Washington and Pyongyang in turns. The two countries may establish diplomatic relations and open embassies in each others' capitals. In the future, American businessmen may arrive in the DPRK to discuss the creation of joint ventures there. It may seem unimaginable, but Pyongyang may see the opening of its first-ever McDonald's restaurant. This would become a turning point for the influx of multi-billion US investment into the economy of the DPRK.The United States may also introduce a visa-free regime for the citizens of the DPRK, and Pyongyang, which now excludes a possibility for residents of the DPRK to travel abroad, may allow traveling to the United States.The beginning of the "honeymoon" in relations between the two former irreconcilable enemies - the US and the DPRK - is very reminiscent of the story of reconciliation between the United States and China in 1972. Back then, successful negotiations between Richard Nixon and Mao Zedong in Beijing became possible owing to many months of Henry Kissinger's shuttle diplomacy. Zedong gave Kissinger the "green light" for the "historic" visit of the head of the White House to the capital of the Celestial Empire.The success of Nixon's mission to Beijing was overwhelming, as the United States had been the sworn enemy of China before that. After the victory of the Chinese revolution, Washington did not recognise the People's Republic of China. In May 1957, the Pentagon deployed nuclear warheads in Taiwan, which Beijing saw as a hostile act.Noteworthy, sport played a special role in both cases of reconciliation - between the USA and the DPRK in 2018 and between the USA and China in 1972. In 1971, American and Chinese athletes played table tennis during an international tournament in Japan, after which the PRC invited the US team to Beijing to participate in a ping-pong tournament.The currently developing friendship between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un would be impossible without sports competitions. In January 2018, the DPRK and South Korea agreed to march under the same flag at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang. The participation of DPRK athletes in this year's Olympics has thawed the ice of distrust between Pyongyang and Seoul. South Korea hurried to hand over the baton of friendship to Washington to begin behind-the-scenes negotiations between the United States and the DPRK, which eventually led to the successful meeting in Singapore.It is also important that Nixon's successful visit to Beijing took place at the height of the Cold War between the USSR and People's Republic of China. Mao Zedong, who cut his friendship with Moscow after Khrushchev's anti-Stalin report in 1956, never forgave Moscow for "betraying the ideas of the great Stalin." The change of power in the Kremlin in 1964 did not warm the relationship, and all of Brezhnev's attempts to make friends with Mao ended in failure.Nixon, the leader of "the imperialist America," was more successful. The USSR feared lest China should come into collusion with the United States against the Soviet Union. Today, the Kremlin has similar apprehensions about Pyongyang's further intentions. Pyongyang's quick rapprochement with Washington may disrupt the current balance of forces on the Korean Peninsula, and Trump would definitely try to set his own rules in the region. If Pyongyang loses its ace of trumps in the form of nuclear weapons, South Korea may take every effort to shatter the DPRK economy and demand the reunification of the two Koreas.

Angela Merkel accused of raping and killing German teen The Germans are enraged after an Iraqi refugee raped and murdered a 14-year-old girl. Many accuse Chancellor Angela Merkel and her open doors policy of the crime. "The only thing that can worse than killing a child is killing a child by a criminal who should not be in our country," Bild wrote.It is assumed that the victim, Susanna Feldman, was an acquaintance of the brother of the suspect named as Ali Bashar. They both were raping Susanne in turns all night before Ali strangled her. The latter was arrested in Iraq: the suspect and his family were allowed to return to Iraq, although the names on their tickets and passports did not match.The leader of Alternative for Germany Part (AfD), Alice Weidel, tweeted that the entire federal government of Germany should resign because of the death of the German girl. According to Weidel, Susanna fell another victim to the hypocritical and selfish policy of German Chancellor Angela Merkel.Two years ago, Germany was disturbed by events in three German cities, where migrants sexually assaulted women on New Year's night. Those events were most massive in the city of Cologne, where thousands of people came to see the New Year in to the central railway station. Pravda.Ru asked German political scientist Alexander Rahr to comment on the current crisis in Germany. "Why has Germany made no adequate conclusions from the Cologne night?""After Mrs. Merkel opened borders in 2015, a lot of people with false passports have entered the territory of Germany. The German legislative base is very humane in terms of granting political asylum and it is very constrained when it comes to deporting migrants. This refugee from Iraq is a living proof for that. He was a drug dealer, the police knew it, but they could not deport him because he would resort to the assistance of lawyers or change his place of residence.""The German authorities know that such crimes will continue to occur. Is there a way out of the crisis?" "There's nothing that one can do to make it better. The people who rule Germany today were born in the late 1960s. They transformed Germany's legal system and made it very humane, although today it is unclear whom this system is humane for. In today's Germany, people would be criticized for sounding the alarm. They would be called fascists, racists, xenophobes and so on - they can even be punished for their statements. In today's Germany, Holland, Sweden it is believed that one should be humane not only to victims, but also to criminals, because criminals always have a chance to get better.""Is there a changing trend in the German society today?" "It's 50x50. A half of the population wants changes, but the other half does not." "What do you think about Alice Weidel's call for the federal government to resign?""If you go to her website, you can see many applauding her in their comments. However, if you go to other German websites, you will see that people label her as a witch, who dares to victimize refugees and use one tragic case for her racist propaganda.""Do you think that Merkel can resign on the wave of popular anger?""This is what German liberal politicians are very afraid of, but they have very strong weapons - mass media. They say that there are many criminals among the Germans too, so one should not come down on those poor refugees who came to Germany to save their lives. The Germans want to get rid of their legacy of the past completely. There are many people in the world who believe that the Germans are functional fascists, who follow Hitler's ideas. Yet, with their present-day policy the Germans have an opportunity to show that they have long abandoned Hitler's ideology and become the most liberal and humane country in the world. In a way, modern-day Germany  is proud of the fact that minorities and disadvantaged groups of people, such as LGBT people, disabled individuals and migrants can find better lives in Germany than, for example, in Russia or in the USA."...

Abolish the Electoral College now! Abolish the Electoral College now! In a recent Pravda.Report article, How Low Will America Go, (05/26/18), I discussed how America's so-called "Electoral College" has failed "to fulfill the purpose it was originally created for, which was to keep inept, venal, and/or soulless people from occupying the highest office in the land." Some of the comments I received seemed to doubt the veracity of this assertion and regurgitated the standard argument that the Electoral College was created for a more "noble" purpose-to ensure that less populous states would have some ability to impact presidential elections....

Austria shows its 'ugly face' to Islam? Is Europe fed up with aggressive Islamism or is it attacking Turkish Islam in particular? Why did Austria decide to close seven mosques and expel 40 imams? Is it Islamophobia or verified actions to suppress the Islamist lobby?Austria will close seven mosques and expel 40 of 260 imams. Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurtz said on June 8 that there was no place for "parallel societies, political Islam and radicalization trends in Austria." "We are only at the very beginning of the way," Vice-Chancellor Heinz-Christian Strähe added. The mosque in Vienna is to be closed as well, as it is believe that the mosque remains under the influence of ultra-nationalists from Gray Wolves, a Turkish organization. The Salafi "Arab religious community" with six mosques has been dissolved as well. Islam exists in Austria under the auspices of the Association "Turkish-Islamic Union of Cultural and Social Cooperation in Austria" (ATIB). The organization unites more than 60 prayer houses with more than 100,000 members. There are also Islamic kindergartens and clubs. Recently, Austria was shocked with the news about the children, who came to a kindergarten party wearing military uniforms and showing Gray Wolves hand sign (the signs represents a wolf head and is made by holding up the forefinger and little finger). The slogan of this organization is: "Let our blood be shed, but Islam will triumph."It is worthy of note that during a large rally on March 10, 2018, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan saluted his supporters with the same hand sign.Austria cracks down on mosques under the pretext of the violation of the law on Islam from 2015, which prohibits foreign financing of mosques and stipulates their "positive attitude towards the state and the society."Turkey has already criticized Austria's actions. "This move is an expression of the Islamophobic, racist and discriminatory wave that passes through this country," Erdogan's spokesman Ibrahim Kalin wrote on Twitter. " "Chancellor Sebastian Kurtz showed his ugly face," the Askam newspaper wrote.President of the Information and Analytical Center Religion and Society, Candidate of Sociological Sciences, Alexei Grishin, told Pravda.Ru that a state must show appropriate reaction to information about extremist activities."Europe is tired of the aggressive Islamist lobby that uses Islam in a criminal way for its political, commercial or other purposes. This is the first stage of the long process to fight Islamists in Europe," the expert said. Gray Wolves is widely spread in Turkey, and Ankara used similar organizations abroad to promote its interests. The expert believes that Erdogan supports representatives of the Turkish community. Erdogan wants to play the role of the father of the nation. As for the Austrian chancellor, he keeps his election promises to limit migration and fight extremism. "It is impossible to conduct economic reforms in such a short period of time, but taking certain decisions to protect population is a very popular measure," Aleksei Grishin told Pravda.Ru. Political scientist Mais Kurbanov believes that Austria is being Islamophobic. "They did not have such problems before, but they have them now, because Turkey's position and policy in Syria has changed and Europe's attitude towards Recep Erdogan has changed too," he said. "This is pure politics, and Turkish Islam has nothing to do with the Gray Wolves. Radicalism is banned in Turkey, just like Wahhabism and other terrorist movements. Yet, they are not banned in Europe, where they can operate openly and enjoy popular support. Those gunmen, who get wounded in Syria, go to Europe for treatment," the political scientist told Pravda.Ru.According to Aleksei Grishin, other countries will follow Austria's example, because the relations between Europe and Turkey have been worsening. Europeans know that religion is an aspect of Turkey's statehood. "However, this is not the religion that calls for radicalism, murder, or terrorism - it calls for unity, tolerance, peace and tranquility," the expert told Pravda.Ru. It is worthy of note that a recent study from the Pew Research Center said that Islam would gain the status of the world's largest religion by the end of the 21st century because Christianity is literally becoming extinct in Europe.

Putin as behind-the-scenes negotiator in US-DPRK summit Many see the US-DPRK summit on June 12 in Singapore as a triumph of Donald Trump, whom Kim Jong-un is so desperate to meet, dreaming of surrendering to the mercy of the United States. It also appears that China is pushing Kim to a dialogue with the main gendarme of the planet, whereas Russia's influence on the process is neglected and ignored. According to CNBC, Russia is a "vital player" in the process of negotiations regarding the North Korean nuclear program. "Despite its relatively low public profile as a player in the North Korea negotiations, Russia's behind-the-scenes ability to throw a wrench in the process should not be underestimated," Elizabeth Economy, director of Asia studies at the Council on Foreign Relations, said, CNBC reports. Last week, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov paid a visit to the DPRK, whereas the Kremlin invited Kim Jong-un to come to Moscow. Therefore, Russia plays a skillful role of a behind-the-scenes negotiator between the two Koreas. Russia, in addition to China, remains one of the few countries that provides the DPRK with transport and telecommunications infrastructure. Russian companies continue exporting fuel to the country, and Moscow wants to build a gas pipeline to supply liquified natural gas to North Korea. Therefore, both Russia and China want to stop Washington in its efforts to establish predominant influence in North Asia. Konstantin Blokhin, an expert with the Center for Security Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences, believes that Russia plays the role of an intermediary in the talks about the North Korean nuclear program.s"Russia's position on the matter would be weak, if the country were not acting in conjunction with China, an ally of North Korea. Pyongyang trusts both Moscow and Beijing. Plus, Kim's nuclear weapons give him a strong position in the talks. The DPRK will not give up the nuclear bomb. Pyongyang may agree to abjure the type of missiles that reach the territory of US military bases in Guam and the US territory itself. In return, Kim Jong-un may ask for guaranteed economic preferences and deeper integration into the world economy.""The current trend of the US policy is to contain China. The North Korean problem is an instrument of this containment. The Americans may come to this region at any time allegedly because of the North Korean problem. They can destabilize the situation at any moment, and crowds of refugees will inundate China."The Americans need the DPRK as an enemy to justify their military presence in the region and sells costly missile defense systems to Japan and South Korea. They mask their aggressive moves that are directed not even against the DPRK, but against Russia and China. Therefore, one should not pin any hopes for the upcoming summit," the political scientist concluded in an interview with Pravda.Ru.... Pubdate: Fri, 08 Jun 2018 16:26:00 +0300

Putin in Austria: Russia and EU shaking hands again? Vladimir Putin's visit to Austria comes as a sign of friendly relations between Moscow and Vienna at the time of EU-Russia tensions caused by the far-fetched and fabricated Skripal case. It also appears that Russia has been developing positive ties with the European Union lately in light of recent meetings that Putin has had with German Chancellor Merkel in Sochi, French President Macron in St. Petersburg and Bulgarian Prime Minister Borisov in Moscow. Moscow appreciates not only positive statements, but also Vienna's official position on the infamous Skripal case. Austrian Prime Minister Sebastian Kurtz of the Austrian People's Party decided not to  expel Russian diplomats after almost all of Europe did so in solidarity with London. "Austria is a neutral country that sees itself as a bridge builder between the East and the West," the joint statement from the Prime Minister and the Foreign Ministry said.Putin certainly remembers other positive aspects in the Russian-Austrian bilateral relations. Putin received an invitation to come to Vienna for an official visit in June 2014, when Putin was considered a political outcast as the West was outraged about Russia's reunification with the Crimea. Vienna also had a firm stance on the construction of the South Stream gas pipeline. Austria was defending the project as much as it could until Bulgaria succumbed to Brussels. This also designates an extremely benevolent position of Austrian businesses that also insist on the lifting of sanctions from Russia. It is worthy of note that Putin is visiting Austria to mark the 50th anniversary of the beginning of natural gas supplies to the European country. Austria continues discussing Putin's interview to ORF television channel, stressing that the Russian president does not want to split the European Union. As Putin said, the more problems the EU has, the more problems Russia has to deal with. Vladimir Bruter, an expert with the International Institute for Humanitarian and Political Studies, told Pravda.Ru that Austria wants to take Russia's interests into account. "Unilateral and unwarranted sanctions against Russia can ruin many things, but they cannot create anything instead. This is dangerous for Europe, which finds itself in a geopolitical trap. On the one hand, Europe is  incapable of ensuring its own security, but on the other hand, it worsens relations with Russia - Europe's largest geopolitical player," Vladimir Bruter said in an interview with Pravda.Ru."The lifting of sanctions will not restore relations between Russia and the West, and Putin's visit to Austria comes as an attempt to start a new conceptual dialogue. If the Russian-Austrian dialogue starts something new, it will mean that Putin has done his job," the expert said. "There will be no quick results from this dialogue, but Russia is ready to bear her share of responsibility while requiring responsibility from the other side. If the West simply tells Russia to do something and then again something, then there will be no dialogue at all," the political scientist told Pravda.Ru.Lyuba Lulko (Stepushova)Pravda.RuRead article in Russian...
