The main reason for the aggression of the West against Russia is carried out by President Vladimir Putin independent Policy, wrote journalist Peter Hitchens in the publication for the British conservative publication the Spectator.
The number of territories that formerly belonged to the Soviet Union, now part of the European Union, for this reason, it becomes apparent that emphasizes the Creator, who in reality increase your space. He believes that despite the popular myth enlargement at the expense of the countries of the former Soviet Union has not brought the last " universal peace, love and prosperity ", RIA " Novosti." The Croatian economy has deteriorated since the time of accession. Corruption to the present moment exists in many parts of the new territories in the South-East of the EU, and I'm not sure what can be said about the rule of law there properly. For this reason, the idea that if Ukraine will depart to the West, then miraculously transformed from a troubled state in the Sunny Paradise of freedom, honesty and wealth may be a little idealistic, not to say wrong, " emphasizes Hitchens. So, it turns out, the journalist believes that the main subject matter of the dispute between Russia and the West is not a virtue, and power and territory. For his part, the expansion of NATO to the East, in the opinion of Hitchens, was due to the initial reluctance of the EU to attach backward, bankrupt and corrupt countries of the former Warsaw Pact." The policy has the ability to be expressed by the phrase " We won't buy Your tomatoes, But if it will make You happy, You are able to find shelter under our nuclear umbrella ". The promise was an empty guarantee against non-existent dangers. But little agreement resulted in a real confrontation, " says the journalist. Than not became more passive Russia, the more her actions were interpreted as aggression in the West, emphasizes Hitchens. It is independent foreign Policy of Russia, in the opinion of the author, was the impetus for the beginning of a new cold war." Really new cold war began in 2011, then as Mr. Putin has dared to upset the policy of the West and Saudi Arabia Syrian Arab Republic ", - said Hitchens. The Creator of the article believes that, Thus and Russia to the fullest extent not realized how much anger from the U.S. would cause her position on the Syrian Arab Republic, Thus and the West did not realize how Russia will react to the Treaty of Ukraine for unity With the EU and the deposition of Yanukovych." After 23 years of reluctant indulging West Moscow finally said " enough ". Since We began to oppose the policy of appeasement, it is not necessary for us to understand the decision of a sovereign country, even if We are not able to praise?", concludes journalist. Relations between Russia and the West deteriorated in connection With the situation in Ukraine. The EU and the US on the background of the progress of the Minsk agreements between Kiev and militias Donbass about stopping the fire entered against Russia penalties against financial, oil and defense industries. In response, Russia has restricted the import of food items from countries that have introduced in relation to punishment, and among them from the EU.
