Among the participants there are the leading intellectuals from Moldova, Russia, Romania, Serbia, Georgia, France. The main goal of the conference is the the analysis of the crisis of European union and modernity and the development of the new political theory, which will be the the alternative to the liberal totalitarianism.
Were Erdogan’s trips to India, Russia, Kuwait and China a message to the United States ahead of his meeting with Trump? Was Erdogan trying to show he has some strong trump cards? Or were the trips the sign of a genuine Eurasian drive? Is Turkey’s Eurasianist leaning driven by economic interests only, or does it signal a structural change in its foreign policy and strategic vision? And if Ankara is serious about a Eurasianist future, which of the four variants will ultimately prevail? How will the mounting power struggle between them affect the state apparatus? The first clues on these critical questions are likely to emerge in the coming weeks.
“Turkey is now more and more inclined to dialogue and discuss the Syrian problem with Moscow, and not with Washington, and the alliance I wrote about – the Moscow-Ankara Axis acquires visible features,” said A. Dugin
Two geopolitical strategies – the Eurasian and the Atlantic – in relation to the Caucasus are mutually exclusive . Here, as in chess, you can not play both “for whites” and “for blacks . ” Therefore, the republics of the South Caucasus have a certain freedom of choice. It is quite obvious that none of them has sufficient geopolitical potential to pretend to play in the new conditions – the rules of the game are determined knowingly, and it is possible to choose only a camp and complicity in a particular strategy. This is the moment of geopolitical freedom in strictly defined frames .
Financial and economic globalization is already in the past. The next act of world drama is the construction of a global electronic concentration camp. And for people from Silicon Valley, David Rockefeller is a dinosaur of the twentieth century. The dinosaur did its work and quietly went into oblivion. The greedy dinosaurs of financial capitalism and financial globalization are being replaced by even greedy and aggressive jackals of the digital world.
I’m forbidden to appear on some channels, on some programs. I’m doing it a little now. But here, due to the fact that I refuse to glorify this ingeniously clever plan, it is ugliness, to praise it as the great wisdom of all times and peoples. Ugliness is ugliness! And, criminal, bloody, dishonest ugliness. When I say this, they tell me that I rock the boat. And I speak the truth and do not swing anything. I am a supporter of Putin, Russia, and it’s hard to suspect me otherwise. But when they show the horse and say “this is a cat”, I still say – no, this is not a cat. With all the wild love for Putin – no.
So today we can talk about the geopolitics of the Russian-Shia Alliance. Of course, Russia makes this choice not so much in ideological, religious as in the pragmatic sphere, but nevertheless, the fact of the Russian-Shia Alliance is obvious. I suggest to pay attention to it. And not coincidentally, the same forces that confront our two countries – Russia and Iran – in Syria, fighting us in other parts of the globe. And even in the North Caucasus, on our own territory. And in Bahrain, in Yemen – we are today on all fronts together. This is no accident. Russian-Shia Alliance – the imperative of modern Russian (and Iranian) politics.
