Russia to Build Naval Bases in Middle East Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Mon, May 19, 2014, 10:43 PM

Russian President Vladimir Putin is embarking on a global strategy to build Russian naval bases in the Middle East.

The Voice of Russia reports that, "The Russian Defense Ministry is in talks to create several naval re-supply and maintenance bases in the Middle East, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Anatoly Antonov said in an interview with Kuwait's KUNA news agency on Monday."

Antonov is quoted as saying that, "We consistently develop our military cooperation with Middle East countries. Naturally, Russia is interested in having re-supply and maintenance bases for our navy in several states in the region. And we are engaged in talks on the issue with certain states."

According to the Voice of Russia, "Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said in February that Russia may create a network of bases abroad, in countries that include Vietnam, Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua, the Seychelles, and Singapore. Moscow currently has only one naval base outside the former Soviet Union in Tartus, Syria, but the fate of this naval facility is uncertain because of the ongoing civil war in that country. Post-Soviet Russia closed a large naval base in Vietnam and a radar base in Cuba in 2002 due to financial constraints."

Some are touting it as Russia's Pivot to Arabs strategy.

Arayik Sargsyan: To Putin's visit to China: the creation of a new world order.
China has long started geopolitical and trade wars for awarding the world's resources of raw materials, energy resources. China is the last pillar of the Judeo-Christian capitalist model of the world economy . In the West, the development of the Judeo- Christian economic capitalism is over, went into decline . The global financial crisis that began in 2008 , this acknowledgment. The last bastion of this model of economic development was China . Labour productivity in agriculture in China has grown . Freed a lot of people . China announced the relocation of 350 million people (almost the population of Europe ) in the city. In addition, China has officially announced its intention to raise the living standards of all Chinese people to an average standard. Today in China of 1.3 billion people normally live only about 400 million Where to get energy? While Europe frantically trying to find alternative sources of energy in case you become Gazprom cut natural gas exports to Europe (instant spike in gas prices in Ukraine by 40% may be a better indicator of the possible consequences ) , Russia is preparing to announce energy deal with anyone otherwise , as with China - a step that can trigger a wave of geopolitical turmoil in the world , linking the two peoples raw cooperation. For Moscow - a deal to supply natural gas to China , which is now , apparently , is nearing completion after several years of negotiations . If it will be signed during the forthcoming visit of Putin in May in China , it will be an indicator of bias power pole on the east, as well as a sign that Russia no longer needs the West .

Crisis in Ukraine: the way out of the crisis. Arayik Sargsyan, Academician, President of the Academy of Geopolitics.
And who was not profitable to provide such a powerful economic space from Lisbon to Vladivostok. You can certainly guess that against the Union of Russia, Ukraine and Belarus with the EU has always made to the United States, England, Poland, Sweden, Turkey, Israel, China and Kazakhstan. Yes that Kazakhstan, as a vassal of the British geopolitical "empire" has become the way of the connection of three East Slavic states with the EU (
. This means that the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEC) in a few years will be the most powerful organization of the Muslim world, with the participation of Russia and Belarus. This process will get rid Europe of its "age-old puzzle" - Turkey's admission to the EU and Russia will become a Muslim country East (including demographic growth of the Muslim population).
Decreasing each other in eastern Ukraine, Russian Orthodox Ukrainians, creating a wall of hatred and eternal enmity between Russia and Ukraine, pushing Russia into the arms of the Muslim East, with its further conversion of raw materials appendage of China.

Russian President Vladimir Putin uses the services of his double. Arayik Sargsyan,Consul of Macedonia in Armenia.

Not grateful this thing to write about these topics, but we will try, referring to the open sources in the media, to give his assessment of the question whether the service uses its counterpart, Russian President Vladimir Putin?

Usually after such statements and publications of the former (?) Special Assistant to the Director of the CIA, Herbert E. Meyer, a Jew by birth, was to follow the Russian Foreign Ministry a note or address the FSB to their American counterparts. But while we such notes and the statement did not stand out. In fairness it must be said that after one of my above mentioned publication, I got all the same letter from the FSB (No: 3406) to the effect that they were worried health and safety of the President of the Russian Federation. After all, Americans threaten Putin assassination since 2007.

Anyway, as the saying goes: "Booked - is forearmed!"

Arayik Sargsyan: USA CREATED TO REPLACE ISIL al-Qaeda for the assignment of Iraq's oil. Likely split Iraq into three parts, of course, will change the balance of the oil in the Middle East. After the success of LIH all oil companies reduced their staff. Some more than others. This applies to BP, Royal Dutch Shell (which uses the services of Sheikh Moaz al-Khatib, a geologist and former president of the Syrian National Coalition), Türkiye Petrolleri Anonim Ortaklığı and Chinese companies, PetroChina, Sinopec and CNOOC ... Thus, the loss will suffer Syrians, Iraqis, Persians, the common people of Kurdistan, and especially China, which was one of the main customers of Iraq. In the same benefit - the United States, Turkey, Israel and Saudi Arabia.

We are talking about everything, but not the establishment of a Sunni state in Iraq, Syria and Jordan. And maybe the war will spread soon to Jordan?

To begin war at least two warring parties are necessary. If they aren't present, it is necessary to create them by means of external or internal forces. For collision of Russia with the USA all necessary forces involved. We should provide in this article the direct facts, quotes of heads of the USA and Russia, ready to begin new war for money... To Khodorkovsky's article arrested for hooligan tricks and for a personal insult to mister Putin in his study in the Kremlin, in the presence of mister Sechin, but it is other subject: To whom is war between the USA and Russia favorable?

I think it it will be favorable to all export countries of oil and gas, Israel, Turkey, of course – to China and Japan, England and perhaps - Germany: . The first economic war of the XXI century which is called constrainingly "sanctions", once again parted Russia and Germany on the different parties of world barricades. Ruling elite of Germany made the choice — and fondly to assume that they could make not euro - the Atlantic, and the Euroasian choice. Any other decision it couldn't be accepted because the financial capital of Germany and the EU seek to keep communication and opportunity to scoop the credit from world emission center which is in the USA today... "Yes, such conversation was, and Putin supported me in this plan. Not for nothing we there in the Kaliningrad region "were at war" recently (the joint Belarusian-Russian doctrine "the West-2013 ″). Therefore from here my position, and let Germans don't take offense at me, they have to know it" — the president of Belarus noted.
It seems Germans offer an exchange: recognition of the Crimea as a part of the Russian Federation, in exchange on accession of Kaliningrad to Germany? Arayik Sargsyan, the academician, the Honourable Consul of Macedonia in Armenia, the Vice-president of Academy of Geopolitical problems of Russia.

Displays whether the Russian peacekeepers in Transnistria? Expert evaluation of the Academy of Geopolitics.
As part of the "law of the jungle" that the United States established in international politics since 1999, Russia takes over the Crimea, with more late-Washington shaking the world order, extending the impact of the Kosovo precedent, when you can not only contrary to international law to separate one part of the country from the other, but even attach it to another country. Thus, 15 years after the US and NATO aggression against Yugoslavia, the consequences of the aggression, caught up as a modern world order, and now Ukraine. In this regard, Russia itself is nothing new comes up, it simply copies the American methodology and approaches in carrying out its imperialist policy. Meanwhile, Russia is quite natural indicates that it does not do anything that did not do the other major imperialist powers, and when she denied the right to do so, it is reasonable to begin to beat the subject of double standards when one somehow possible, while others can not . In this regard, within the framework of this competition, it looks more convincingly than pathetic links Merkel coup trampled the Constitution of Ukraine, and the cries of the Obama entitled violations of international sounding from the leader of a country that international norms and the Yalta-Potsdam world order late-Washington trampled decades. Our experts podcherkyvayut that "The war in Europe, Ukraine is profitable? "- Http://

Given the purpose of Saakashvili's hard not to agree that the Russian contingent of the unrecognized republic and come hard times. 3. military means to eliminate the peacekeepers will be difficult, so Kiev together with the pro-Western regime in Moldova, headed for the economic strangulation of the country, based on the ones that the deterioration of living conditions and problems with the supply of peacekeepers make local leaders more amenable, and for the resumption of Russian supply Peacekeepers will make concessions in other areas. In fact, it is outright blackmail, which is trying to cover up the shaking muscles, by transferring under the Odessa batteries of S-300 in response to the discussion of the idea of ​​supplying peacekeepers military transport aviation of the Russian Federation; more detail here, "the head of administration of Putin punished for the Crimea?



4. It goes through the air supply is certainly possible, but it is a situational decision. The costs for such an air bridge will be significant, and completely shut down all questions of supply is unlikely to be able to. Plus it is always the possibility for military provocations, because the military board will go over the territory of Ukraine. Plus, if the blockade tightened, the choice of this path will connect to these operations chats significant military transport aviation of the Russian Federation: "The crisis in Ukraine: the way out of the crisis" - -iz-krizisa.html.

  Transnistria followed. Displays whether the Russian peacekeepers in Transnistria? I am sure that there is. Based on the current line, rather more likely option any similar negotiations those on which it was a question of energy supply of the Crimea, as expert evaluation was given to us: -rodinu-2 /. Without the elimination of the current government in Kiev, all these concessions and compromises will not be able to provide long-term guarantees for the interests of Russia and its dependent territories of the Russian Federation: "ISRAEL SENDS Hizb ut-Tahrir to the Crimea" - / izrail-napravlyaet-xizb-ut-taxrir-na-krym /.

"Gazprom" involves Russia in war. Expert assessment of Academy of Geopolitics.
Specialists of Academy of Geopolitics repeatedly analyzed activity of the Russian gas monopolist of "Gazprom".
The matter is that the Gazprom company not simply business structure, and it is the geopolitical weapon of Russia, and first of all in hands of the President of Russia.

On January 27, 2015 the head of Gazprom Alexey Miller made visit to Turkey. In Istanbul the head of Gazprom Alexey Miller and the Minister of Energy of Turkey Taner Yyldyza agreed about construction of the Turkish Stream gas pipeline for sale of the Russian gas in Europe.
"Putin finances party of the president of Turkey Erdogan for a victory at parliamentary elections: The course the Kurdish horse" -

The Russian President still has one more chance to persuade the president of Turkey that Erdogan signed the contract on construction of "The Turkish stream". On June 13 in Baku (the capital of Azerbaijan) negotiations between Putin and Erdogan will take place. But it is necessary to expect positive results on hardly because R. Erdogan after parliamentary elections in Turkey, turned into "a lame duck". . So, affairs at the head of Gazprom mister Miller are bad. I remember, how on May 6, 2002 as the Russian President V. Putin after much persuasion appointed A. Miller to work in "Gazprom". Next day, Miller having come running to Putin in an office to the Kremlin, I begged Putin to oust him Heads of Gazprom. But mister Putin "forced" Miller will return to "Gazprom". Who could think that from - for policy of "Gazprom" war in Ukraine moreover and on the way Macedonia with Armenia will begin.
