Many politicians around the world strongly condemn not only Israel’s inhumane policy in the Gaza Strip, when peaceful Palestinians are being slaughtered, but also the hypocrisy, duplicity, pharisaism and arrogance of the West. In one case, the current worthless rulers of Europe condemn the defence of their citizens in Donbass by Russia, which is complying with all international rules of engagement. In the other, when Israel started to destroy civilians in the Gaza Strip (which according to international laws is considered a policy of genocide), the West welcomes and applauds, defending its protégé in the Middle East in every possible way…

Former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak has criticized the policies of current Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, saying that “the beginning of the war may be a precursor to Israel being mired in the Gaza quagmire.” In an opinion piece for the Israeli newspaper Haaretz, Barak called for early elections in Israel “before it’s too late.” The former Israeli prime minister said, “On the battlefield, we see inspiring displays of courage and sacrifice. In Israel, we see despair, a sense that despite the gains of the Israel Defense Forces, Hamas has not been defeated and the return of the hostages is receding.”…

South Africa is preparing for retaliatory measures from Western regimes meant to punish one of Africa’s leading powers and a BRICS member for launching an international legal prosecution against the Zionist regime. The South African leadership, however, believes in the country’s ability to resist these Western actions. South African President Cyril Ramaphosa has warned…

As the unipolar world created by the West is slowly but steadily slipping into the abyss, it is becoming more and more obvious what kind of “hegemon” the United States is. At present, as well as in the past, this state does not comply with the decisions of international organisations created by it, resorting to solving any problems only with the help of brute military force. At the same time, Washington and its armed forces kill and maim hundreds of thousands of people around the globe with impunity and without any shame. It is enough to remember what the “democratic”…

Long-promoted Western ideas and theses are now openly rejected by the world majority. To the West’s dismay, Western countries today openly acknowledge these facts, raising fears among the leaders and their associates within the Western world minority. Many pseudo-experts and so-called Western “intellectuals” associated with the pro-NATO establishment are beginning to openly talk about ongoing processes…

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…

Over time, the future relationship between the Global South, including African countries, and the Western world minority represented by the respective regimes is becoming increasingly clear-cut. And it should be noted that these relations are heavily stacked against the latter. The most interesting thing is that the collective West seems incapable of understanding what repercussions their absurd actions will entail and keeps making one strategic mistake after another, thereby again stepping on the same rake due to its arrogance. In the first days of 2024, the Swedish regime, still struggling to formally join NATO…

Since June 2023, when Recep Erdoğan was reelected as president, Turkey’s economy has, once again, been going through difficult times. Given the scale of the financial crisis and the consequences of February’s devastating earthquake, Recep Erdoğan was forced to appoint technocrats with degrees from US business schools to the government’s financial team. The two new appointees, Mehmet Şimşek (Minister of Treasury and Finance and Treasury) and Hafizeh Gaye Erkan (Governor of the Central Bank), in a bid to stabilize prices, have pushed through a number of tough…

Certain treasured wishes and memories inevitably visit us again and again, and such recurrent visions can be a painful experience. Such is certainly the case for almost one in two of Mongolia’s people, who are left waiting as the country once again raises the question of building a subway in the city of Ulaanbaatar. The megacity, which has almost tripled in size since the beginning of the 21st century, now houses almost half of the country’s population, accounts for an even greater share…

The world’s media have increasingly printed articles about a number of European countries that have begun to speak out more boldly against Israel’s policies and its bloody massacre of Palestinian civilians in the Gaza Strip. The willingness to criticise Israeli policy and its leadership led by Benjamin Netanyahu, notes the Swiss newspaper Blick, seems to be taking root in an increasing number of European countries. In stark contrast to France, Germany and Britain, which, under heavy US pressure, openly supported Israel by repeating its accusations that Hamas is a “terrorist” organisation, other European governments…

The war in Gaza has further deepened the gulf between Western states and the developing world. The thousands of civilian deaths caused by Israeli bombardment in the Palestinian enclave, exactly 20 years after the tens of thousands killed by the American invasion of Iraq, will long epitomise the hypocrisy and double standards of the West. The wealthy Western powers, accustomed to exploiting Asia, Africa and Latin America since colonial times, are trying their best to maintain their economic advantages and keep the States of the Global South under their control. Over the past 30 years…

In April 2023, the Ministry of Energy of Kazakhstan assessed the degree of deterioration of the main CHPs in the country. As a result, it was found that most of the facilities were significantly depreciated, with many of them (as many as 17) having depreciation rates exceeding 70%. The Ministry’s report reflects another peculiarity of Kazakhstan’s CHPs – all of them (37 units) were built during the Soviet period. Privatisation of this sector of the economy in the 1990s led to the concentration of sectoral facilities with private companies…
