Published 2019-02-16 20:30:31 by Paul Antonopoulos in Eurasia, Finance, Headline-News, Russia

MOSCOW, Russia – Credit rating agency Fitch has kept Russia’s credit rating at BBB – with a positive outlook, citing Russia’s strong balance sheet and progress in strengthening its economic policy framework. In addition to pointing out a positive outlook for the country, the agency assesses that Russia balances “robust external finances and a credible macroeconomic policy framework against weaker growth prospects than peers, high commodity dependence, weak governance standards and geopolitical tensions.” “The Positive Outlook reflects continued progress in strengthening the economic policy framework underpinned by a more flexible exchange rate, a strong commitment to inflation- targeting and a… Continue ->

Rapprochement between Russia and China is a major threat for US

Published 2019-02-16 17:30:51 by Paul Antonopoulos in Anglo-5, China, Eurasia, Headline-News, Russia, United-States

WASHINGTON DC, The United States – Russia’s rapprochement with China threatens US global hegemony and may dwarf Washington’s scientific and technological potential, according to the observer for the US-based Bloomberg and Johns Hopkins University professor Hal Brands, who relied on conclusions of the US intelligence services. According to Brands, the US intelligence report “shed light” on trends that, he said, “could seriously alter the global landscape for the worse.” Among them is the rapprochement between China and Russia, he said. “China and Russia are more aligned than at any point since the mid-1950s,” the observer said. According to him, amidst… Continue ->

Surkov’s Tell-all: Putin’s Deep State Revealed

Published 2019-02-16 15:39:36 by Guest Author in Eurasia, Headline-News, Opinions, Putin, Russia

- Advertisement -

Editor’s note – Vladislav Surkov was First Deputy Chief of the Russian Presidential Administration from 1999 to 2011, during which time he was widely seen as the main ideologist of the Kremlin who proposed and implemented the concept of sovereign democracy in Russia. From December 2011 until May 2013 Surkov served as the Russian Federation’s Deputy Prime Minister. In this explosive tell-all piece, Surkov reveals that Russia’s democracy – like ALL democracies – are essentially illusory systems created to lend legitimacy within the age – this age, but one coming to an end – where democracy itself equals legitimization. Nevertheless, the Russian model of this illusion… Continue ->

It’s time for Super-Putin: Dugin on Surkov’s Putin Analysis

Published 2019-02-16 15:15:50 by Guest Author in Eurasia, Headline-News, Opinions, Putin, Russia

Dugin’s verdict on Putin: Putin is just a compromise between liberals (elites) and patriots (the people), better than the 90’s but still not the best option Russia can produce. After Putin, Dugin says Russia needs a ‘Super Putin’. Dugin weighs in on Surkov’s major Op-ed article from earlier in the week, also published here on FRN. Surkov is also one of Putin’s advisors, and in fact the chief architect of the ‘non-ideological’ (such is banned by the RF constitution) ideological framework of Putin’s theory and practice of what Surkov calls ‘Sovereign Democracy’. – J. Flores and K. Russ Alexander Dugin:… Continue ->

DUGIN: Russia took the worst from capitalism, China took the best

Published 2019-02-16 14:11:47 by Guest Author in China, Eurasia, Headline-News, Opinions, Russia

By Alexander Dugin –  China is a unique society that, participating in globalist projects, does not lose its identity. This is unimaginable for other cultures: when Western countries, Russia, Islamic, Latin American states do this, they change their identity to the Western, accept the basic parameters of globalization and become its victims. Perhaps the success of the PRC is due to the deep stability of Chinese identity. For this, of course, the state is responsible. But then who is responsible for the identity preservation structure in China town? Some Chinese in the United States do not even speak English. We… Continue ->

40 Years On – The Iranian Revolution: Progress, Syncretism & Martyrdom

Published 2019-02-16 14:06:32 by Padraig McGrath in Headline-News, Iran, Mena, Opinions, Propaganda

Forty years on, the Islamic revolution is an historically exemplary form of 1970’s Marxist-religious syncretism. We can note as I will explain further below that there was also the Sandinistas and a few less successful attempts at Marxist-religious syncretism during the same period, for example, the Soviet-backed Somali Democratic Republic under Mohamed Siad Barre. Iran was the historically exemplary form of this ideological syncretism because, in terms of securing the revolution’s most central tangible political objective, it was so successful – they actually succeed in getting BP’s interests in Iran nationalized. So even if all the Marxists were subsequently purged,… Continue ->
