Rahr: Certain forces in the West intend to provoke Russia


On Monday, January 10, talks were held between Russia and the United States on security guarantees. German political scientist Alexander Rahr shared his opinion on the reaction of Europeans to the tough position of Moscow.


For Russia, the key issue of consultations with Western colleagues was the issue of non-expansion of NATO, since otherwise the alliance would directly threaten the integrity of the Russian Federation. At the same time, both in Germany and in the USA there are policywho understand Moscow's concerns and are committed to a productive dialogue.

At the same time, Ukraine currently has no chance of joining NATO, since not everyone in Europe supports Kiev's Atlantic aspirations. In addition, according to a number of parameters, Ukraine does not yet meet Western criteria. But there is another danger.

Certain forces in the West want to provoke Russia to enter Donbass and recognize the DPR and LPR as independent states. Then it will be possible to impose tough sanctions on the Russian Federation - to ban Nord Stream 2 and disconnect it from SWIFT. This will be a new form of hybrid warfare

- said the political scientist in Vladimir Solovyov's program "Full Contact".

However, Rahr believes that Russia and European institutions have a chance to agree on security issues. Most ordinary citizens in European countries do not want confrontation with the Russian Federation. Organizations such as the OSCE can influence the Scandinavians and Ukrainians and keep them from joining the North Atlantic Alliance. But the voice of these forces is very weak.

Security issues in Europe today are ruled by American geopolitics and the desire of Eastern European countries to "take revenge" on Russia for the years of "communism"

- stressed Alexander Rahr.

    If the West decides to "ban Nord Stream-2 and disconnect it from SWIFT," then they will not provoke the Russian Federation for this, but will stage the next performance "Glaivice-Skripal"!
    RF would be nice to build up its economic muscles!

    The ends do not fit with the ends of the respected Alexander.

    However, Rahr believes that Russia and European institutions have a chance to agree on security issues.

    But at the same time:

    Security issues in Europe today are ruled by American geopolitics and ...

    The point, of course, is in his narrow, "European" interests.
    Russia has much broader interests, and it should not be led by the distracting maneuvers of Europeans, paired with their master, playing this game. A split in NATO and the EU as a final result that we can use is impossible.
    The United States keeps the leadership of all these countries and structures on a short leash, and in strict collars.
    For this, the CIA has worked and is still working "in a Stakhanov way", collecting dirt on EVERYONE.
    Which, oddly enough, simplifies the problem for us, since it focuses our efforts on the only task - to bend America
