The dissolution of the Soviet Union and the fall of the wall of Berlin in 1989 gave birth to the unipolar world order led by the United States. Globalization also emerged as a byproduct of this unipolar world order. The United States succeeded in aligning most of the countries towards one singular interest, that of the United States and its allies’. The global supply chain network pinnacled to an unprecedented level during this era of globalization. Former US President George Bush proclaimed in his speech, in 1991, that this US-led world order…

The recent meeting in Moscow between Chad’s President Idriss Deby and Russia’s Vladimir Putin is the latest sign Africa is embracing the emerging multipolar world order. Western reaction to this and a score of other linkups has been on the level of a geopolitical panic. One by one, and in batches, the nations of Africa are spurning the old-world imperialists, especially France. And Chad is a keystone nation in the dead center of the continent…

By repeatedly targeting the Houthis in Yemen and pushing for an escalation in the Red Sea, the US is jumping into the Middle East with a military and strategic mindset. The objective is to create space for Washington – and its global allies – to push back against the recent gains, i.e., normalization between Iran and Saudi and Arab normalization with Syria more than a decade after the start of the so-called “Arab Spring”, that Russia and China have made. A wider war in the region will, in the US calculation at least, re-politicize regional fault lines that might allow Washington…

At first glance, 2024 should be a significant commemoration of the concept of democracy, which was first introduced by the Greeks over two thousand years ago. In the coming months, elections will be held in countries that collectively represent over half of the world’s population, which is more than 4 billion people. These include some of the world’s most populous and influential nations, including the United States, the United Kingdom, Russia, India, and Pakistan. However, history teaches us that simply sending people to the polls is not enough to guarantee the upholding of democratic principles…

The dominance of the West in international relations is coming to an end not only geopolitically, but also in terms of geoeconomics. Despite the loud declarations of Western elites and attempts to slow down this process by all means, everything indicates that the share of the Western minority in international economic relations will continue on a downward path…

According to a recent Council of Foreign Relations report, Russia’s growing influence results from a massive disinformation campaign. Those who read the report with an objective eye will quickly notice the earmarks of America’s disinformation campaign against the Russians. Where Russia-Africa relations are concerned, CFR and other sources cite Wagner PMC, weapons trade, and some form of Russian neocolonialism as major factors of the so-called “Russia shift.” That notorious “domino effect” Washington used to justify the Vietnam War appears to already be in motion in Africa…

In the first quarter of the 21st century, Turkey has demonstrated a confident and resolute policy aimed at changing its age-old status of a regional state towards a super-regional power and one of the centers of the multipolar world (in particular, the leader of the Turkic world). In principle, the strategy of imperial revanchism has never left the political thinking of the Turkish elite after the collapse of the Ottoman Empire following World War I. Under the leadership of Kemal Atatürk, Turkey was forced to accept the status of a regional state due to its defeat in World War I and the loss of key territories in the Balkans…

The already disintegrated world has been further fragmented by different wars and rising tensions across different regions around the world. Amidst the already rising tensions between the two superpowers of the world, China and the United States, the Russia-Ukraine conflict and Israel’s genocide in Gaza have widened the gulf between different nations, especially the Eastern and Western nations. A huge number of elections, worldwide, in the year 2024 in different countries, including Russia, and the USA, have further added fuel to this uncertainty in the year ahead…

Russia started delivery of free grain to Somalia, the first country in which the US implemented the model it had been prevented from attempting by the presence of the USSR. The result of this model of interference for 34 years is evident in poverty and food insecurity not only in Somalia but other countries with US and allied bases. Russia’s delivery will be followed by similar free aid to other countries, including where the US has military and drone bases spying on and distracting the host governments from promoting food production, but instead enlisting them to fight ‘terrorism’…

Following the one-day visit of Russian President Vladimir Putin to the UAE and Saudi Arabia, a meeting of the leaders of Russia and Iran took place in Moscow on December 7, 2023. The talks between Vladimir Putin and Ebrahim Raisi lasted about 5 hours (including both in an expanded format and in private). The dynamics of regional events in the Middle East and South Caucasus require closer attention and active diplomacy from both the world’s leading players and key regional countries. Russia and Iran have accumulated considerable experience…

No matter how nostalgic for the unipolar era the forces represented by Western regimes try to divide the supporters and promoters of the modern multipolar world order, everything indicates that these Western initiatives have failed. These tendencies are clearly visible in different regions of the world. Over the past few years, one of the main goals of the Western establishment has been to introduce, if not discord, then at least dividing lines between the main forces supporting a multipolar world, primarily Russia and China, as well as all those countries of the Global South that are also…

The ever-evolving world structure is, currently, seeing transformation from a unipolar to a multipolar world order. This transformation is caused by numerous factors which range from the failure of the UN to the military interventions and the unilateral decisions of the US in different global issues. Since the end of World War 2, the US has been responsible for almost 81 percent of global wars. Moreover, it has been the sole superpower of the world since the culmination of the Cold War. The United States has invaded several countries around the world in quest of its strategic and…
