Enemies waiting for defeat! SAR Interior Minister Muhammad Ibrahim Al-Shaar confirmed that the aggressive actions of the armed groups are part of plans to undermine the resilience and patriotic positions of Syria. Such plans were developed in advance to protect Israel and the interests of the United States. Being present at the maneuvers of the police special forces, the Minister highly appreciated the role of the Syrian army and security forces in confronting terrorist groups that undermine the security of the country and its citizens, reports SANA.
He expressed confidence that those who receive money and weapon from the enemies of the motherland, nearing their defeat. Above them will be won thanks to the efforts of the gallant sons of Syria, led by President Bashar Assad, who defend the honor of the Motherland and restore security in its vastness.
Al-Shaar also met with the elders of the Wadi Barad district and its residents, who had previously worn weapons, but had surrendered to the authorities. He confirmed that what is happening in Syria is terror organized by armed groups, with the aim of distorting true Islam in the interests of the West. The head of the Interior Ministry stressed that the settlement of the crisis in Syria is possible not through arms, but through dialogue. This is the only way to stop the shedding of blood of the sons of Syria.
The shelling of the territory of Lebanon from the Syrian side. On the Syrian side of the border, according to the Lebanese TV station, there are fierce clashes between the army and the armed opposition, reports MIGnews.com.
The frontier areas of Lebanon in the north of the Bekaa Valley and the Hermel region were shelled. As reported by the Al-Mayadin television channel, two Lebanese were killed in Al-Qasr, and nine people were taken to hospital with injuries. Who exactly led the shooting (soldiers of the Assad army or the opposition), it is hardly possible to establish.
It is reported that helicopters, armored vehicles and rocket artillery batteries take part in the operation, which is being carried out at the border crossing points of Dzhousiya and Mashari al-Kaa.
Under the control of government forces, the settlement of Abil, located near the Damascus-Homs highway, passed. He probably served as a transit point for mercenaries who penetrated into Syria through the highlands near the Lebanese border Ersal.
Syrian analyst Turki Hassan believes that the release of Abil radically changes the military picture on the approaches to Homs. According to him, the troops blocked the militants supply lines, which are surrounded in three districts of the city.
Israelites became more than eight million. On the eve of the Memorial Day of the fallen Israeli soldiers and victims of terrorism, the Central Bureau of Statistics published data on the population of Israel. As of April 2013, there are about 8 million 18 thousand citizens in the country, MIGnews.com.
Since the founding of the state in 1948, the population of Israel has increased almost 10 times. Then it was only 806.000 people.
According to new data, the Jewish population is about 6 million 42 thousand (75,3% of the total), Arabs live in the country 1 million 658 thousand (20,7%), representatives of other nations and religions - 318 thousand (4,0%).
The Central Bureau of Statistics also showed that in 2010, more than 70% of the Jewish population are people born directly in Israel (and more than half of them are the second generation). In 1948, there were only 35% of these.
Comrade Ahmadinejad's uranium tour. Today, the Iranian president begins his African tour, during which he will visit Niger, a country that represents one of the world's largest uranium producers, reports "RT".
The head of the Islamic Republic will stop in Benin during the trip, through which Niger exports its uranium, then it will visit Niger itself. The tour will end in Ghana, where not only cocoa is produced, but also gold.
Before leaving Tehran, the President stated: “During our visits to Benin, Niger and Ghana, we will make significant efforts to develop comprehensive ties. Memorandums of understanding will be signed in the fields of energy, trade, culture, tourism and health. ”
“RT” recalls that Niger exports its uranium mainly to France, but recently the two countries have disagreements: the African state demanded to reconsider the distribution of sales revenues.
Thus, let us add, comrade Ahmadinejad, has chosen the time for negotiations very well.
Pyongyang won't talk to Seoul. On April 14, DPRK authorities rejected a proposal from the Republic of Korea to hold talks on cooperation between the two countries in the Kaesong industrial area. According to "Lenta.ru" With reference to France-Presse, Pyongyang, which had previously announced the closure of the industrial zone, called the initiative of Seoul "empty and meaningless."
Earlier, the proposal to hold a dialogue on the future of the industrial zone in Kesong, which served as a rare example of cooperation between the two Koreas, was made by the South Korean Minister of Unification Yu Kil Zhe.
In the DPRK Committee on the Peaceful Unification of the Motherland, they declare that with such "senseless" gestures Seoul only disguises its plans for a military invasion. Evidence of the insincerity of the South Korean authorities in Pyongyang called the continuing joint exercises of the Republic of Korea and the United States, as well as the demands of Seoul about North Korea’s refusal to create nuclear weapons.
Birthday Kim Il Sung. This morning, Kim Jong-un visited Kõmsusan Memorial Palace on the occasion of the main national holiday of the DPRK - Kim Il Sung's birthday. He visited the halls in which the tombs of his grandfather and father, Kim Jong Il, are located. The young leader laid a basket of flowers to the statues of two generalissimos installed in the palace, according to "Vesti" with reference to ITAR-TASS.
Vesti reminds us that the Kymsusan Palace was built in 1977 year. It was originally used as the residence of President Kim Il Sung, in which he received foreign leaders, held meetings and meetings with party and economic cadres. The building also had its residential apartments. After his death on 8 July, 1994, the palace was turned into a tomb. In the course of work completed in an exceptionally short timeframe in 1995, the layout was changed, the interior spaces were expanded, and their decoration was updated. In 2012, the palace was reconstructed. The surrounding area was turned into an open park area. The decision of the North Korean deputies noted that all Koreans "must consider this magnificent building as a sacred temple and a symbol of the dignity and pride of the whole nation."
White death. Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin compared Afghan heroin to Russia with weapons of mass destruction. This topic was taken by the Deputy Chairman of the Government, who also heads the State Border Commission, yesterday at a meeting at the border station Aksarayskaya-2 in the Astrakhan Region, reports ITAR-TASS.
Some processes occurring in Afghanistan and Central Asia, according to D. Rogozin, pose a threat to the security of the Russian Federation. “Russia is being attacked by heroin gangs, a frank war is being waged, and on such a scale against our country that we can compare the incoming volumes of heroin with weapons of mass destruction,” said the deputy chairman of the government.
He stressed that in Russia they are happy to see "respectable (foreign) citizens, including those who are ready to come to work in our country." But at the same time, a hard barrier must be put up against those who "bring weapons into our country in the form of heroin, as well as those who are trying to export to our country an extremist ideology that undermines the foundations of our constitutional order." In addition, "the border should be tightly closed for all those who are illegal migrants, who trample down the rules and laws that we have established in our country in terms of migration legislation."
Spanish economics professor promises Europe a social explosion. When unemployment is high, the danger of social unrest grows with it, says Miguel Angel Malo, a professor of economics in Salamanca (Spain) and an economic expert at the International Labor Organization. (By the way, in Spain, youth unemployment is 56%).
Few wrote his work for the International Labor Organization. The key point in this work was the thesis that the probability of social unrest grows, conveys Mixednews.ru with reference to the Hendrick Heinze note (Deutsche Welle).
According to the professor, 26,3 million Europeans are unemployed - this is 10 million more than before the crisis broke out in 2008. For 22 from 27 of the EU countries, the labor market is worse off than before the crisis. Only five countries have an unemployment rate lower than they were in 2008: Austria, Germany, Hungary, Luxembourg and Malta.
In countries that have accepted the euro, unemployment is growing faster than outside the single currency area.
The ILO estimates that now in the EU the risk of unrest is 12% higher than it was before the crisis. The International Labor Organization believes that the worse the political and economic position of the EU, the higher the risk of social unrest. This means that the potential for social unrest is growing in Cyprus, Greece, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Slovenia, the Czech Republic. Risks are reduced for Germany, Finland, Belgium, Slovakia and Sweden.
To avoid unrest, the ILO advises the eurozone to change course, abandoning tougher economic measures, which should be replaced by concentrated efforts to improve the situation on the labor market.
Some Russians can become Cypriots. Nicos Anastasiadis, the President of Cyprus, announced that he would offer Cypriot citizenship to foreign investors who had lost 3 million euros and more due to the European program for the economic recovery of the country. The proposal concerns non-resident investors who have made deposits before 15 in March 2013.
Among the major contributors in Cyprus, many Russians resemble "Vesti" with reference to ITAR-TASS. At a meeting with Russian businessmen, which took place in Limassol, the President of Cyprus announced that he shared their bitterness and fears about the program of economic recovery, "imposed by the Eurogroup."
Thus, let us add from our own account, the money-affected Russians can easily be made citizens of the country that expropriated their contributions. In a sense, they bought themselves citizenship. I wonder where these potential Cypriots will now keep the money?
Comrade Lukashenko hit cuts on the state apparatus. In Belarus, the number of civil servants will be reduced. According to "Lenta.ru" With reference to Interfax-Zapad, the President of the Republic signed a decree according to which the number of employees in state organizations will be reduced by about 25%. The decree entered into force on April 12. The planned activities are planned for July 1.
Officials who are fired will be provided with some benefits. Until they settle for a new job (maximum for a year), they will be eligible to postpone the repayment of mortgage loans, as well as when paying tuition fees at universities for their children. Former civil servants will be able to be treated in the same medical institutions in which they were served before the dismissal.
A large-scale reduction of officials, reminds "Lenta", Lukashenko announced in the fall 2012 of the year. “The bottom is smaller, the top is bigger, removing unnecessary functions and then significantly increasing the salaries of civil servants,” he described the upcoming optimization of the state apparatus.
Commenting on these plans of the president, Belarusian News noted that Lukashenko came to power under the slogans of fighting the bureaucracy, but only under his rule many bureaucratic structures grew, some structures that existed under the USSR were also revived: for example, a pro-government union of young people was created, financed from the budget (analogous to the Komsomol), positions of ideologues (analogous to party secretaries) were introduced at the enterprises. In addition, Belarussian News believes that the “misfortune of the Belarusian bureaucracy” is not so much its number as the abundance of the functions entrusted to the officials, which intertwine with each other, which prevents decision-making.
And what about the number of officials in Russia? Olga Pavlikova ("Profile") cites some data. According to VTsIOM, to enter the civil service is the dream of every fifth Russian. Young people are especially eager to go there: 35% of young people would like to become officials. They admit that they are attracted to the work of an official by a very high salary, benefits, social guarantees. Nobody talks about the desire to benefit the country.
“... If in 2001, the 10 of thousands of residents in the country accounted for 78 employees of state bodies and local governments, in 2011 there were already 112. If we count all those who work in state or municipal unitary enterprises, in the State Duma, the Council of Federation, regional and local legislative assemblies, federal and regional ministries, state corporations and city council apparatuses, licensing, controlling and registration bodies, as well as pension, insurance and social funds, it turns out that almost every twentieth Russian is engaged in the state sphere, that is, almost 5%. For comparison: in China, according to experts, the number of officials per 10 thousand of citizens of the country is only about 50 people, that is 0,5% ".
And one more small quote:
“And here we come to an important question: who actually owns the power in the country today? The answer, alas, suggests itself: the power in Russia belongs to the officials, and its leader Vladimir Putin is the country's most important bureaucrat. Hence the tolerance of the country's leadership towards the million-strong army of officials - it is explained by electoral, political reasons. After all, state dependents are always loyal to the current government. And if you consider that each bureaucrat contains two or three members of his family, it means that the government is always guaranteed to support at least 20 million citizens. And that's not counting teachers, doctors, military, and Interior Ministry employees ... ”
Those wishing to clarify on the issue of the number of officials give a link to "Arguments and Facts"where in A.Krainov’s note a reasonable number of millions of people were given in 6. It was also reported on plans from 2010 year to reduce the bureaucratic apparatus by 20%, but, of course, things are there.
Ivanishvili decided to re-investigate the "five-day war." In an editorial "Frankfurter Allgemeine" (source abbr. translation - "Inopressa") It tells about serious accusations against the Georgian president, made by Prime Minister Ivanishvili.
The Prime Minister and the leader of the ruling party "Georgian Dream" demanded a new investigation of the events of the "five-day war." As a result of the conflict, Georgian troops suffered defeat, and Russia recognized the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia. A year later, the EU commission working at the scene of the event came to the conclusion that the responsibility for initiating hostilities lies with President Saakashvili, who gave the order to begin large-scale hostilities against Tskhinvali.
At a press conference in Tbilisi, B. Ivanishvili stated that the Georgian people "must learn the truth that Europe already knows." Ivanishvili claims that the country's leadership at the time acted "inadequately."
“I consider it absolutely unjustified that the troops were brought to combat readiness and began military operations before Russia crossed our borders,” the prime minister said. Ivanishvili also considers it erroneous to use the regular army to fight "incomprehensible gangs that fired at Georgian villages". According to the prime minister, the right move would be to evacuate residents to safe places and to invite international observers to the region. And therefore, the prime minister believes, “you should not be surprised if it comes to a court case, during which Saakashvili himself will be interrogated.”
We are not agents. Agents are not us. "InoPressa" made a review on the topic of the day under the heading: “NGOs do not accept the label of“ enemies of the people ”and do not believe in“ Putin's billion ”. Let us dwell on two excerpts.
Reuters. On Thursday, Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights Nils Muiznieks said that with unscheduled inspections and new harsh laws, Russia hampered the work of NGOs. “The law is bad,” Muiznieks said briefly at a press briefing in Moscow. He expressed concern about the vague wording and use of the label “foreign agent”, which carries a “political charge”. Leading Russian human rights organizations refused to register as “foreign agents”, saying that they are not involved in politics and act in the interests of Russia, reminds “Reuters”.
"Frankfurter Allgemeine". A lot of questions are raised by the sum of almost 1 billion dollars, which, as President Putin has publicly stated, Russian NGOs have received from abroad in the past four months. It remains unclear whether the Russian special services calculated the “Putin billion”, or whether the data were obtained during recent inspections in the offices of the organizations. Frankfurter Allgemeine advises Russian NPOs to show the inconsistency of state calculations, making the financial statements public, or file a lawsuit against the state for defamation and violation of their rights.
War Lists. The Russian Foreign Ministry announced a list of US citizens who are denied entry into the Russian Federation under federal law No. 272-FZ "On Measures to Influence Persons Involved in Violating Fundamental Human Rights and Freedoms, Rights and Freedoms of Citizens of the Russian Federation", reports Interfax.
The list included persons involved in the legalization and use of torture, the indefinite detention of prisoners (“Guantanamo List”): David Eddington, Head of the Office of the Vice President of the United States (2005-2008), John Yu, Legal Counsel of the US Department of Justice (2001 -2003), Jeffrey Miller, commander of the US Navy base at Guantanamo (2002-2003), Jeffrey Harbeson, commander of the US Navy at Guantanamo (2010-2012). The list of the Foreign Ministry also includes persons involved in violations of the rights and freedoms of Russian citizens abroad.
As Interfax reminds, on the eve of the United States published a “Magnitsky list”, which included eighteen people. There mainly appear to be law enforcement officers who, according to the drafters, were involved in the investigation of the criminal case against Sergei Magnitsky.
Moscow noted that the publication of the American “Magnitsky list” dealt a severe blow to bilateral relations. “We regret to state that the American side, following the provisions of the absurd“ Law on behalf of S. Magnitsky, ”made public the names of Russian citizens, against which visa and financial sanctions are being imposed. Our fundamental assessment of this unfriendly step is well known - under pressure from the Russophobic-minded members of the US Congress, a strong blow was struck to bilateral relations and mutual trust, ”said Alexander Lukashevich, an official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, posted on the website of the Russian Foreign Ministry.
Comrade Lukashevich noted that “the war of the lists is not our choice, but we have no right not to respond to outright blackmail.” “It’s time for politicians in Washington, finally, to realize that building relations with a country like Russia in the spirit of mentoring and blatant dictation is unpromising,” the Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman said.
As the RIA News"referring to the newspaper "Kommersant", the work on the "Magnitsky list" in the United States will continue. New names will definitely appear in it - as information about human rights violations in Russia is verified.
The fact that the White House "is serious about the issue of human rights in the Russian Federation," is evidenced by the approval of a secret supplement to the list. The administration has the right to classify the names of some defendants "for reasons of national security" - they will not be imposed financial sanctions, and only a ban on entry to the United States will be imposed. The Kommersant interlocutor refused to name which of the Russian officials was mentioned in this document, saying only that “the closed list is two times shorter than the main one”.
Curious how that conveys RIA News"The Americans, who learned that Moscow and Washington imposed a ban on entry into their territory for eighteen employees on both sides, were disappointed that the Russian list was so narrow and the sanctions so minor.
At the Huffington Post publication forum, which won the Pulitzer Prize in 2012, over 4 thousand people expressed their attitude to the American Magnitsky list and the response list of the Russian Foreign Ministry. Most of the panelists believe that it would be worth much more senior American politicians to call for an answer.
Some reviews are very informative. For example, here is what Michael Bilebil writes:
“Tell the Russians to add Bush, Jr., (Dick) Cheney, (Paul) Wolfowitz, (Condoleeze) Rice, (Colin) Powell and their ilk, who have ravaged the people of the United States, dragging him into the war with Iraq. ".
And here is another comment by its author, Olaf:
“Strangely, neither Bush nor Cheney is on this list. Yes, and the punishment itself is ridiculous - just the same as to prohibit visiting the toilet in a suburban train. They have their place in prison. ”
An original proposal was also expressed at the forum: let Russia and the United States mutually extradite each other of all the parties involved in the lists, so that they would appear before an independent foreign court, if justice did not happen in their homeland. A New Yorker called Mike-InNY calls for:
“Obama made a big mistake without initiating prosecution against Cheney Bush. Let at least now offer Russia to exchange their 18 for our 18, and let each of the countries judge them on its territory. Maybe then we will see that justice is done. ”
Incident in Guantanamo. Guantanamo prisoners in the US military base provoked riots, reports "Voice of Russia" with links to RIA Novosti and ITAR-TASS.
According to the Southern Command of the United States Armed Forces (SOUTHCOM), the prisoners blocked the view from the surveillance cameras and hung the windows. "To restore the observation, the guards entered the sixth camp, to transfer the prisoners to solitary cells and remove objects obstructing the view from the cameras ... A number of detainees, armed with improvised means, tried to resist, and a warning fire was opened in response," SOUTHCOM.
The captain of the United States Naval Forces (Navy), Robert Durand, explained: “Permanent monitoring of prisoners is necessary to maintain order and security in Guantanamo, so it was decided to enter the cells and remove everything from there that hinders the security review.”
“Order has been restored. As a result, neither the guards nor the detainees were seriously injured, ”Durant stressed.
In addition, he said that the revolt occurred in that part of the prison, where 43 prisoners in the end of February went on a hunger strike in protest at the removal of their personal belongings. Last week, some of them were forced to introduce liquid food through special tubes.
In total, Guantanamo, recalls the Voice of Russia, contains 166 people. Most of them were captured by US special forces as a result of counterterrorism operations more than 10 years ago. The prisoners of Guantanamo are actually in a legal vacuum. Of the remaining prisoners in the prison prison, 86 was considered unhazardous by the US authorities.
The note notes that unrest occurred in prison on the day Russia published the Guantanamo List, a response to the American Magnitsky Act.
What remains of the USAF. David Chenchiotti ("The Aviationist"; source of translation - Mixednews.ru) believes that those US Air Force, as we know them, no longer exists.
The author, referring to the “Air Force Times”, indicates that according to internal documents that were at the disposal of this publication, since April 9, the United States Air Force, as a result of budget cuts, began to withdraw advanced combat units to the reserve. The order for suspension from flights will affect seventeen squadrons belonging to various air force units.
The removal procedure is designed to save 44 thousands of flight hours (costing 591 a million dollars) by the end of September 2013. The remaining 241.496-funded flight hours will be distributed among the squadrons remaining on alert, or transferred to a reduced level, called "Basic readiness", until the end of the fiscal year 2013.
Other squadrons will be removed from the flights immediately, and some - as soon as they return from their missions abroad. Among them are the 94 Fighter Squadron from Langley, the F-22 “Raptor” fighter jets, which are in the Kaden Peninsula during the crisis on the Korean Peninsula, and Okanava and the Osan Air Base, and the 354 Fighter Squadron, twelve A-10C airplanes, which now return to Davis Montand after the mission in Afghanistan.
Other units that have received an order to disqualify them from flying are: the Thunderbirds aerobatic team, the 555 Fighter Squadron from Aviano Air Base, Italy; 77 Fighter Squadron from Shaw, South Carolina; 492-I and 494-I fighter squadrons from Lakenheath, Britain; 18-I assault squadron from Ailson, Alaska; B-52 squadrons belonging to the 2-th bomb wing from Barksdale, Louisiana, and the 5-th bomb wing from Minot Air Base, North Dakota; also B-1 squadrons from the 2 and 7 Bomb Wings from Deiss, Texas.
On link You can find a complete list of squadrons that will be affected by the suspension procedure (according to the Air Force Times).
The split among guns lobbyists. The American Citizens Committee for the right to have and carry weapons - the largest lobbyist organization in this area after the National Rifle Association - supports a compromise bill on inspections of weapons buyers, reports correspondent RIA "News" Peter Martynychev.
The Committee of Citizens for the right to have and carry weapons unites more than 600 thousand people, while the National Rifle Association - about 5 million. Earlier, the weapons lobby spoke in a united front against proposals to tighten control over the circulation of weapons made after the tragedy in Connecticut.
The new document was approved by Democratic Senator Joe Manchin and Republican Patrick Tumi. The Senate can vote on the bill in the middle of the week.
A statement by the chairman of the committee, Alan Gottlieb, sent out to members and journalists, says: “If you read the Manchin-Tumi amendment, you will see what advantages it has for us, such as the possibility of selling weapons in another state, restoring the rights of veterans, the opportunity to travel with weapon. "
As the correspondent reminds. RIA "Novosti", the proposals of the White House and the Democrats from the beginning were not limited to mandatory inspections of arms buyers, but included a ban on the sale of "assault rifles." However, now we are talking only about amending the law, at least according to the rules of inspections.
The probability of the Fourth World War is calculated. Nikita Sorokin ("Voice of Russia") talked with a member of the Academy of Military Sciences, MSU Professor Sergey Malkov, who said that, in accordance with N. Kondratieff's theory of cyclicity, the break given to humanity between the Third and Fourth World Wars is nearing its end. This is the conclusion made by scientists of the Russian Academy of Military Sciences.
According to the concept of “long waves” of Nikolai Kondratiev, the next world war may begin in the next decade, says Professor Malkov.
In a very simplified form, the cycles of N. Kondratieff are periods of economic development of modern civilization with a duration of forty to sixty years. Each period is characterized by successive alternation of phases 4: economic recovery, its stagnation, crisis, depression (or recession).
Comrade Kondratiev identified six cycles covering the segment from 1803 to 2060 year. The fourth cycle lasted from about the end of the Second World War to the first half of the 80s. Malkov specifies that the fifth cycle is now underway, which, according to N. Kondratiev, is expected to end in 2018.
Proponents of the theory closely link each economic cycle with its inherent technological level. The current period distinguishes the development of IT, telecommunications and robotics. The sixth cycle should be marked by a breakthrough in nano-, bio-, information and cognitive technologies.
Each cycle is always accompanied by crises and wars. The final of the current cycle and the transition to the next technological order will be accompanied by at least a strong political instability, and even a world war, I'm sure Sergei Malkov. In an interview with the Voice of Russia, the professor explained:
“We are now at the stage of a crisis situation, she has gone into depression, convulsive searches are underway for some way out of this depressive state. In particular, due to new technologies that will be growth drivers. The so-called NBIC technologies: nano, bio, info, cognito. But this period is very dangerous, because the exit is not yet visible, but contradictions have accumulated. Usually at this time world wars begin. World trade, financial, economic, political, well, classic. There is a redistribution of the world. "
According to forecasts of supporters of the theory of Kondratiev, the critical moment will come soon: in the sixteenth or seventeenth year.
Yes, it is difficult to say whether a full-scale world war will begin. However, Professor Malkov has no doubts that information, psychological, economic and trade wars will occur. They are coming now, the scientist noted:
“The previous, third, world war was just at the junctions of the fourth and fifth cycles of Kondratieff. It passed without the universal use of weapons, but the results are obvious: the geopolitical map of the world was redrawn, the candidate for world domination of the USSR and its allies suffered a crushing defeat and ceased to exist in their previous form. In the current situation, the role of the Soviet Union is fulfilled by a new contender for world leadership - this is China. ”
At the latest stage of human development, the main events will develop in the interaction between China and the United States. The ripening conflict on the Korean Peninsula fits perfectly into the model of the redistribution of the world, Comrade Malkov is convinced. This is a consequence of US policy, provoking the creation of conflict zones within the scope of their interests. After all, all the “technological” competitors of America are present in the Asia-Pacific region — Russia, China, Japan and South Korea.
According to Malkov, the United States is losing its position in the world, and the American political elite is becoming more and more dangerous in the global aspect. The ruling political and financial circles in the United States will be interested in the instability of certain regions of the world. Why? Because international economic instability raises the rate of the US dollar, and political instability raises the demand for the United States as a world arbiter.
Due to the economic power of the United States can no longer back up the claim to world leadership, and because they are about to begin to use political, financial and technological tools. Americans just have to provoke instability in the world. And it is very dangerous, the professor believes.
What is the way Comrade Malkov sees?
In the circumstances, there is a chance to avoid a new world war - provided that the countries of the international community agree on the formation of a new world order, taking into account the interests of all states. The professor implies a new world pattern on the model of a living organism: it must be different from the system of competing states in that all its members, as organs, will exist in concert without harming each other.
Thus, we add from ourselves, in any case, whether there will be a war or not, according to the Kondratieff cycles, a new world order will be formed. And it will happen very soon.
