New revelations are shedding more light on the CIA and Massad’s involvement in the Obama administration’s sabotage of the Iranian nuclear program. Dutch media have identified the man who played a crucial role in the U.S.-Israeli operation to disrupt Iran’s nuclear program in 2007. Given the Biden administration’s threat diplomacy and fearmongering aimed at Iran on Israel’s behalf recently, we should expect even more colorful espionage that targets the Iranians. In addition, the Dutch espionage revelations provide circumstantial evidence…

In the previous article, you and I examined the relations between Russia and the ASEAN organisation – one of the fundamentally important “players” in the Asia-Pacific region. This is the largest and most successful association in Southeast Asia, which in geo-economic terms occupies one of the leading places in Asia and unites a region with a population of over 600 million people. Now I propose to talk about the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum, a multilateral regional association with the participation of 21 economies, including Russia, which discusses…

Most Westerners imagine Russian President Vladimir Putin sitting in his office in the Kremlin, wringing his hands and gritting his teeth, pondering Russia’s imminent conquest of all of Europe. At least, this is the narrative spun by the liberal elite. Reality, as is so often the case, is divergently opposed to the Washington public relations campaign. Let’s briefly look at what the living legend Putin is up to. I am sure many will be surprised…

The successful movement forward of the main forces in the multipolar world, a de facto split between the West and the Global South, the ineffectiveness of sanctions pressure on truly sovereign countries, a growing push away from key elements of Western dominance and simply a massive global rejection of Western policies proved to be the most significant events of the outgoing year. 2023 is about to end. Although the outgoing year can hardly be called easy, it unconditionally ended in favor of supporters of a multipolar world order, causing irritation among those nostalgic for the bygone unipolar era. Overall, despite the collective West continuing to remain an extremely negative and destabilizing…

The ever-expanding list of Western sanctions on Russia has an unexpected and less-than-desirable effect. Central Asian countries are experiencing unheard-of growth due to Russian businesses and investors moving to the region. A brief look at Tajikistan’s 7.5% GDP growth, Uzbekistan’s predicted 6.5%, Kazakhstan at 5%, followed by Kyrgyzstan with 4.6%, and the brilliant economic warfare waged by the West is a losing proposition. North Americans and Europeans are the only people being hurt by the proxy war in Ukraine and its economic facets…

Foreign Secretary James Cleverly recently announced 22 new sanctions on individuals and businesses outside Russia, another brilliant proof of the U.K. leadership’s impotence. According to the U.K. government press office, the goal is to cut Russia’s access to military equipment. Unfortunately for the King and his minions, the sanctions are mainly aimed at people and countries that don’t give a damn what the U.K. does. As evidence that Great Britain can do nothing on the world…

As you are aware, current US-Iranian relations have been separated into two phases: collaboration from 1947 to February 1979, before Iran’s Islamic Revolution, and conflict from February 1979 to the present. Following the Islamic Revolution, the overthrow of Reza Shah Pahlavi’s rule and capturing the US Embassy officers in Tehran in 1980, the United States has broken diplomatic relations with Iran. It cannot be said that the main reason for the ongoing confrontation between the United States and Iran is the theocratic regime in Tehran and the lack of democracy in that country. Also, because of regional variances in customs, religious beliefs…

In connection with the inclusion of New Eastern Outlook in the EU’s 11th sanctions package, we sincerely appreciate the free and effective promotion of our journal. For many years New Eastern Outlook has been an open forum for experts from different countries to express their views on a wide range of political, economic and social issues. We have honestly and consistently reported on the neo-colonial policies of the EU and the United States in various regions of the world, and we consider the sanctions policy against us to be our highest commendation…

Владимир Путин и Россия изолированы

Russia is doomed to the same fate as Yugoslavie, or worse. This is a foregone conclusion if you scan western mainstream media, Washington think tank publications, or attend training sessions for US State Department personnel. The Ukraine proxy war, Zelensky the puppet dictator, and stumbling Joe Biden the president…

Турция НАТО

Turkey has been a part of NATO since February of 1952. And it took more than two years for this country to join the North Atlantic military alliance, which it was allowed to do only after meeting the US political requirements, which included rejecting Atatürk’s one-party political system in favor of democratizing the electoral process and establishing a multi-party system…

Following the launch of Russia’s Special Military Operation (SMO) in Ukraine, India’s senior authorities did not openly denounce Moscow and adopted a more measured approach to the situation. The neutrality of New Delhi is primarily attributable to the fact that Russian-Indian ties have long been cordial. Russia and India are BRICS...

At the behest of Washington, Western countries are intensifying the crisis in relations with Ankara by imposing more and more anti-Turkish sanctions. Be it for the drilling operations in the eastern Mediterranean, the purchase of Russian surface-to-air missile systems, or simply because of rapprochement with Russia - anything goes...
