WASHINGTON/BRUSSELS/RIYADH/TEHRAN – American airmen are practicing the plan to break the Russian anti-air and anti-missile defense systems. And they already chose a target – Kaliningrad. Situated in the southeastern part of the highly contested Baltic Sea, the Kaliningrad Oblast is a Russian exclave packed with anti-air and anti-missile defenses and a real thorn in NATO’s backside. The exclave is also home to the lethal Iskander missile system, capable of striking most of Eastern Europe, rendering NATO’s defenses in the area useless. Although the tensions in the region are already high enough, NATO and the US are still intent on escalating… Continue ->

FLORINA, Greece – In the northern Greek region of Macedonia (different to the country of “Northern Macedonia”) were found golden warrior masks from antiquity and confirms in part the literary myths of the kings (Temenides, Bacchians) of Macedonia originated from the northeastern Peloponnese peninsula in southern Greece.

Published 2019-09-24 16:30:34 by Paul Antonopoulos in China, Eurasia, Headline-News, Serbia

China has no greater reliable partner and more sincere friend than Serbia, according to President Aleksandar Vucic said last week in Belgrade at a ceremony remembering the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China. The Serbian President said that the accusations that his country is becoming China’s greatest friend in Europe is a “boast for us, because we plan to be in the future” and that Serbia was proud to implement the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). Any walk-through Belgrade and the Russian influence is evident, with billboards and businesses seen abound. However, the Chinese are… Continue ->

Is Saudi Aramco hiding information about the true damage of its oil infrastructure?

Published 2019-09-24 14:30:30 by Paul Antonopoulos in Headline-News, Ksa, Mena

RIYADH – Repairs to Saudi Aramco’s oil facilities in Abqaiq and Khurais could take months rather than just ten weeks, the oil company initially estimated. According to contractors, quoted by the Wall Street Journal, the oil company is in urgent negotiations with equipment manufacturers and service providers and is willing to pay special rates for faster delivery and installation. Even with the payment of urgent services, the repair work can take months, or even a year, because the equipment still needs to be manufactured, delivered and installed, the newspaper said, citing Saudi officials. As a result of Aramco’s overly optimistic… Continue ->

Why is Russia watching the Black Sea NATO exercises closely?

Published 2019-09-24 13:29:43 by Paul Antonopoulos in Eurasia, Headline-News, Nato, Russia

CRIMEA – Russian warships do not hinder NATO countries and Ukraine from conducting exercises in the Black Sea, closing off the maneuvering area to prevent incidents, former Baltic Fleet commander Admiral Vladimir Valuev said. Earlier, in an interview with the Ukrainian edition Segodnya, retired Lieutenant General Ben Hodges, who commanded the US Army in Europe, said Russia “is blocking NATO exercises.” When Atlantic Alliance forces announce exercises on the Black Sea, Russia closes the corridors, the US general said, noting that NATO needs to build its forces in the region to “guarantee freedom of navigation.” “Before making such statements, the… Continue ->
