With the first round of the 2019 Lithuanian Presidential elections completed on May 12th, the field has narrowed down to two candidates Ingrida Simonyte and Gitanas Nauseda, with Prime Minister Saulius Skvernelis announcing his retirement in July, 2019. All three candidates continue the decades long policy of anti-Russian and anti-Communist actions and rhetoric, along with servile obedience to EU and NATO influence and control. As  FPRI points out, whether the race is won by Simonyte, “a tall, high-pitched economist squirming out of potentially uncomfortable positions” or Nauseda, “a rotund policeman baldly pushing through”, the next four years will not bring any new… Continue ->

US President Donald Trump has said that China will not be a “superpower” with him in power. Will the American leader be able to contain the development of the Asian giant and what will happen when he is no longer president of the United States? In this connection, the Chinese expert believes that no one is capable of accomplishing this task.
