On the foreign policy of Russia in the new international conditions
The confrontation between Russia and the West, which was clearly marked in February 2022, also renews our view of events in Europe – in this Old World. Here, in Europe (more precisely, in the west of the European continent), two world wars of the 20th century were born, matured and broke out.
If we talk about the Second World War, the grandiose battles, which began in Western Europe, also engulfed Eastern Europe, including the then Soviet Belarusian, Ukrainian, Moldavian, Lithuanian, Latvian, Estonian republics, the RSFSR. Only when the Second World War swept over Great Britain and the USA, these two states were forced to create an anti-Hitler coalition together with the Soviet Union, their ideological adversary. Stalin called her Anglo-Soviet-American alliance.

From the moment of the unconditional surrender in 1945 of Germany, and then of Japan, until the final collapse of in 1991, the USSR, all the main members of the anti-Hitler coalition, including the United States and Great Britain, recognized the decisive contribution to the victory in the war of the Red Army. Now other times have come, and yet we firmly remember: only thanks to the Great Victory and forcing the aggressors to unconditional surrender for 77 years will peace be preserved in Europe and Northeast Asia.
Under the fragile cover of peace, the forces of a new war were maturing. Wild capitalism, which swept the republics of the former USSR, replaced the socialist system; it was assumed that the “new Russia” would obey the “rules” of a foreign civilization. However, it didn’t work out.
On February 22, 2014, a Western-backed nationalist coup d’état took place in Ukraine, with massacres in Kyiv. The world community turned a blind eye to the murder (the lie about the “heavenly hundred” was accepted), but the answer to this was the reunification of Crimea with the Russian Federation, which was a step of world-historic significance.
The second step was Russia’s transition to the protection (not in words, but in deeds) of the discriminated Russian and Russian-speaking population in the east of the former Ukrainian SSR.
And the collective West continued to “develop” Ukraine. Last but not least, we have in mind the development of Europe’s largest shale hydrocarbon deposit, in particular, in the Yuzovskaya area in eastern Ukraine, which captures the DPR and LPR, as well as the Kharkiv region. Appropriation of these fossil resources would allow the West to “emancipate” Europe from Russian gas.
The world will be presented with irrefutable evidence that the special military operation (SVO) of the armed forces of the Russian Federation in Ukraine, which began on February 24, 2022, was only a few days ahead of the invasion of the Ukrainian army into the territory of the DPR, LPR and the Russian Federation. The goals of the NWO are defined succinctly – demilitarization and denazification. Within the framework of Russia’s new foreign policy, these definitions need to be (and will be) expanded. The question of the timing of achieving these goals remains open, but significant progress has already been made towards the restoration of the territory of the DPR and LPR within the borders of the former Donetsk and Luhansk regions of Ukraine. The first steps are being taken towards the demilitarization and denazification of Kherson and the Kherson region, and this needs to be told in much more detail than it is now.
The West, which, at the stage of preparing the NWO, declared in all voices that it had no intention of interfering in the ripening conflict, is now increasing its intervention. The usual deception, for which the West is so incredibly generous. Many states are involved in the supply of weapons and military equipment to the ruling Ukrainian regime. And here the undisputed leader is Poland, which is preparing to “bite off” its western part from Ukraine with the city of Lviv, which was Polish before the start of World War II. There are other contenders for the territory of a weakened Ukraine. Sergey Lavrov defined these actions as “hybrid war”, “proxy war”.
“Old Europe” (Western Europe) is leading to a protracted war in the east and north of the European continent. To such a war, which, according to Western strategists, will deplete the Eastern European, Eastern Slavic countries. An element of the plan is to draw the territories of Sweden and Finland into the “sphere of responsibility” of the North Atlantic military bloc. And, of course, Ukraine.
Another element is the creation of informational noise effects about the possibility and likelihood of a world nuclear war. The Americans hope that a nuclear war will not reach them beyond the two oceans. And on the “eastern military fire” they will be able to warm their hands well, correcting the shattered economy with new large orders for the military-industrial complexes of their countries.
In this light, the recent withdrawal of Great Britain, the second Anglo-Saxon (nuclear) power, from the European Union looks in a new way. It can be said that this is a kind of insurance against drawing Britain directly into the planned war in the East as a second edition. encourage after East.
Russian diplomacy and Russian foreign policy are faced with the most difficult task of frustrating these plans, ensuring that the tasks assigned to the NMD are achieved on the external front, stopping the supply of arms and military equipment to Ukraine from the West, and forcing the current Ukrainian regime to peace on our terms. And no “intermediaries”, “guarantors” from the West are needed for this. The West in its relations with Russia, firstly, is eternally “incapable of negotiating”; secondly, in the post-Soviet world there are problems that need and can be solved without “help” from outside.
One of the keys to Russia’s success on the difficult path that began on February 24, 2022, is the overdue change in the economic course of the state. In the new conditions, Russia is finally obliged to form a self-sufficient economy, allowing it to be provided with both the means of consumption (the problems with food are already shouting) and modern means of production for the development of the richest natural resources in the world for the benefit of the people.
And also – to work out a new foreign policy course aimed (first of all!) at long-term good neighborliness and cooperation with the closest neighbors of the Russian Federation – the former Soviet republics. This is a truly strategic task. Its solution will require the work of more than one generation.
