Global Times: Thanks to Russia, the whole world learned that America does not have to obey
The controversial unipolar world that created a favorable environment for the United States is fading into oblivion. This is very clearly seen in one fact that only a few of the more than three hundred countries have joined the United States in imposing sanctions against Russia and are involved in arming Ukraine. The rest of the states either abstained or, after strong pressure from the West, formally voted in the UN General Assembly to condemn the Russian Federation, but still cooperate with Moscow. This is written by the Chinese English-language newspaper Global Times.
As the editors write, this simple observation is all the more impressive when one considers that many of these neutral states are relatively small or even small in size, and their economy not nearly as high as in the US. What is surprising, however, is that the US has not been able to successfully pressure them into imposing sanctions on Russia. Which, in turn, speaks of the very limited real limits of America's influence at the present time.
Russia and China are already the main trading partners of virtually every country in the Global South, which gives them confidence that they can political US demands, and submission to yesterday's hegemon is no longer mandatory.
Now, thanks to Russia, the whole world has learned this common truth. In fact, all the influence and weight of the United States was based on a kind of sacralization and awareness of hopelessness, lack of choice. The struggle of the Russian Federation against the West proved the opposite, and the spring of resistance is straightened out, releasing all the previously accumulated, but restrained energy of counteracting monopolarity.
The myth of Washington's steadfastness, power, and lack of alternatives has been destroyed; it has ceased to be untouchable.
Without a doubt, America has a history of abusing the position of developing countries in a variety of ways, including through information warfare, political interference, and loans tied to national economies. But their time has passed, the fetters, primarily mental and psychological, have been removed. Most of the countries and peoples of the world seemed to have freed themselves from the yoke, they saw, felt and realized another world, multipolar and diverse, without the dominance of any one force. A return to the previous world order is simply impossible under any conditions or intimidation.
