The West has been unable to cope with stronger politically and economically by Russia, which was once included in the "Big eight" to keep control of its energy resources, writes political analyst Andrew Corisco in the publication.
By itself, the G7 was a political organization that aims to spread Western world order, and weakened After the destruction of the USSR, Russia was necessary mostly because of secured energy resources, the analyst believes. However, he writes, After coming to power, Vladimir Putin, the West has lost its own main lever of influence. Then resurgent Russia tried to apply the platform to realise their influence in the EU. The construction of the "Nord stream" was obliged to minimize the dependence of the EU from North America.
Washington could see no other way but to undermine which reinforces economic ties between Russia and Europe, I'm sure the Creator. After diplomatic intervention of the capital of Russia to prevent military intervention by the United States to Syria in September 2013, the Americans launched the scenario of "color revolutions" in Ukraine. According to Corisco, geopolitical goal of the U.S. - to make Europe dependent on us shale gas, although the EU has no opportunities for the construction of the terminals, and the gas is not objectively able to replace Russian resources.
However, instead of the gloomy scenario of an economic collapse that was predicted by the West Russia, Moscow used the opportunity to accelerate geo-economic diversification and to lay the foundations of a new economy. In Russia, the analyst writes, realized that the focus on Europe limited strategic freedom of the country, and managed to seize the moment, but the European economy, as well as among them agriculture, faced with unforeseen consequences.
Corisco compares the West with a hunter who lured the bear "honey" economic integration, However, when the hunter in the punishment took the honey from the bear, he quickly switched to the "Queen bee" - Asia. Now this hunter is forced to fear from the bear to flee, says the analyst.
