    Vietnamese leaders welcome Chairman of United Russia Party

    Party General Secretary Nguyễn Phú Trọng has emphasised that Việt Nam always values the traditional friendship and comprehensive strategic partnership with Russia, and the Communist Party of Việt Nam (CPV) attaches importance to developing relations with political parties in Russia, including the United Russia Party (URP).

    This will play a role as a political foundation for long-term and sustainable relations between the two countries, he said.

    Trọng made the statement while holding talks with Chairman of the URP and Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of Russia Dmitry Medvedev, who is on a working visit to Việt Nam from May 21-23 under a cooperation agreement between the CPV and the URP.

    Medvedev congratulated Việt Nam on its dynamic development and expressed gratitude for the warm reception extended to the delegation by the Party, State, and people of Việt Nam.

    He also informed Trọng about the situation in Russia, including the URP, and the bilateral relations between the two countries, especially bilateral relations and cooperation between the CPV and the URP.

    Medvedev agreed with the opinions and assessments of Trọng in terms of the major directions and measures to promote the relations between the two Parties and two countries.

    South Africa’s ruling party says Putin ‘welcome’ despite ICC warrant

    The country is still “constrained” by the institution, a top party official has admitted

    “Putin is the head of state, do you think that a head of state can just be arrested anywhere?” Mbalula went on, adding that the Russian president has actually been “working for peace between Ukraine and Russia.”

    He also pressed the reporter over the questionable record of the UK itself and its Western allies, particularly former British PM Tony Blair, as well as the futile search for the ‘weapons of mass destruction’ used as a pretext to invade Iraq. "How many crimes has your country committed in Iraq? How many crimes has everyone else who’s so vocal today committed in Iraq and Afghanistan? Have you arrested them?"

    Vietnamese military delegation, led by Deputy Defense Minister Hoàng Xuân Chiến, met with Russian military delegation led by Shoigu, meeting on 6 July 2023.

    Vietnam is committed to preserving and developing cooperation with Russia regardless of the changing international circumstances, Deputy Defense Minister Hoang Xuan Chien told senior Russian officials during his visit to Moscow this week.

    Russian military officials also discussed with their Vietnamese guest future plans for the joint Tropical Center, a Hanoi-based research facility which celebrated its 35th anniversary in March. It conducts studies in areas ranging from medicine to material sciences, which may have practical defense applications.

    The work of the center allows Vietnam “to improve the resilience of arms and hardware which we bought from the USSR and Russia, and also protect the health of submarine crews, military pilots, and soldiers deployed in harsh conditions,” Hoang Xuan Chien, who chairs the Vietnamese committee in charge of the site, said.

    The West does it all the time, but they can afford to make these sorts of mistakes more than Russia. Russia has to be smarter.

    I think the whole point of BRICS is that no one has to be an enemy.

    Just because China is communist and is not the same religions as Russia doesn't mean they can't work together and do great things.

    Russia can work with anyone for positive results that benefit Russians, but the core problem in the past was that Russia was working with the west essentially supplying cheap resources and raw materials and getting lectured to and even sanctioned in response for not doing what they were told.

    Not saying there is no future with any western countries but for as long as they are US lackeys with no independence then there is not a lot Russia should engage with them about.

    Idiots in power in the west are not learning any lessons and just read from the great book of western colonial power, there is little purpose in talking to them and they are incapable of meeting their part in any bargain signed so why bother at all?

    Not One Inch": A Brief Review Of The Archives On NATO Expansion
    Tyler Durden's Photo
    by Tyler Durden
    Tuesday, Jul 25, 2023 - 07:00 AM

    Authored by Michael Chapman via The Libertarian Institute,

    Although the Joe Biden administration and much of the major media contend that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has nothing to do with NATO expansion, U.S. Army Col. Douglas Macgregor (ret.) told Valuetainment Founder Patrick Bet-David that Vladimir Putin has opposed “the movement of NATO to his borders” for “at least 15 years” because he sees such expansion “as a threat.”

    Macgregor’s view is shared by the University of Chicago’s Distinguished Service Professor John Mearsheimer, considered one the world’s leading scholars on “realist” foreign policy. He argues that Russia considers NATO expansion into Ukraine as an “existential threat,” a position it has publicly held since at least 2008.

    Yet U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken says the conflict “was never about NATO enlargement” or “about some threat to Russia’s security.” Blinken also claims that Russia’s assertion that it was promised NATO would not spread eastward after the collapse of the USSR is false.

    So who is telling the truth? Let’s look at the record.

    On Bet-David’s June 28 PBD Podcast, Macgregor explained that Putin has “been talking at least for 15 years about his opposition to the movement of NATO to his borders. He’s made it very clear that he regarded it as a threat. One of the reasons he moved into Crimea was that he saw that becoming a NATO naval base principally for the U.S. Navy, obviously in the Black Sea. So, he moved on that first and then said, look, this has got to stop.”

    Declassified documents in the National Security Archive at George Washington University show that former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev, starting in 1990, was given many assurances by U.S. and European leaders that they would not expand NATO eastward to Russia. “Not one inch eastward,” said then-Secretary of State James Baker.

    Ukraine, the cradle of Kievan Rus (Russia), is on Russia’s western border, and western Ukraine borders Poland, Hungary, and Romania.

    The archives document that one of the earliest assurances to Gorbachev came from a speech by the German foreign minister, Hans-Dietrich Genscher, in January 1990. In a cable to Washington, DC, the U.S. Embassy stated that Genscher made clear that NATO should rule out an “expansion of its territory towards the east, i.e., moving it closer to Soviet borders.”

    In a February 10, 1990 meeting between German Chancellor Helmut Kohl and Gorbachev, the archive reports that the “West German leader achieved Soviet assent in principle to German unification in NATO, as long as NATO did not expand to the east.”

    The archive further states, “Not once, but three times, [U.S. Secretary] Baker tried out the ‘not one inch eastward’ formula with Gorbachev…He agreed with Gorbachev’s statement in response to the assurances that ‘NATO expansion is unacceptable.’”

    Baker also assured Gorbachev that “not only for the Soviet Union but for other European countries as well it is important to have guarantees that if the United States keeps its presence in Germany within the framework of NATO, not an inch of NATO’s present military jurisdiction will spread in an eastern direction.” [Emphasis added]

    After being briefed by Baker, Chancellor Kohl told Gorbachev, “We believe that NATO should not expand the sphere of its activity.”

    On May 31, 1990, President George H.W. Bush said to Gorbachev, “[W]e have no intention, even in our thoughts, to harm the Soviet Union in any fashion. That is why we are speaking in favor of German unification in NATO…Such a model, in our view, corresponds to the Soviet interests as well.”

    In 1991, British Prime Minister John Major assured Gorbachev, “We are not talking about the strengthening of NATO.” As for NATO inclusion of East European countries, Major said, “Nothing of the sort will happen.”

    After a meeting in July 1991 with NATO Secretary General Manfred Woerner, a Russian memo reads, “Woerner stressed that the NATO Council and he are against the expansion of NATO (13 of 16 NATO members support this point of view).”

    The archive article concluded, “Thus, Gorbachev went to the end of the Soviet Union assured that the West was not threatening his security and was not expanding NATO.”

    After Gorbachev, Boris Yeltsin became the first president of the Russian Federation, serving from 1991 to 1999. Vladimir Putin became president in May 2000, serving until 2008. He then returned to the presidency in 2012.

    According to Professor Mearsheimer, author of “Why the Ukraine Crisis is the West’s Fault: The Liberal Delusions That Provoked Putin,” “Since the mid-1990s, Russian leaders have adamantly opposed NATO enlargement and in recent years, they have made it clear that they would not stand by while their strategically important neighbor turned into a Western bastion.”

    “For Putin, the illegal overthrow [in 2014] of Ukraine’s democratically elected and pro-Russian president—which he rightly labeled a ‘coup—was the final straw,” said Mearsheimer. “He responded by taking Crimea, a peninsula he feared would host a NATO naval base, and working to destabilize Ukraine until it abandoned its efforts to join the West.”

    “The United States pushed forward policies towards Ukraine that Putin and his colleagues see as an existential threat to their country, a point they have made repeatedly for many years,” Mearsheimer said in a June 2022 speech at the European Union Institute. “Specifically, I am talking about America’s obsession with bringing Ukraine into NATO and making it a Western bulwark on Russia’s border.”

    “The United States is not seriously interested in finding a diplomatic solution to the war, which means the war is likely to drag on for months, if not years,” added Mearsheimer. “The United States and its allies are helping lead Ukraine down the primrose path.”

    Mearsheimer made those remarks one year ago. Today, the Ukraine-Russia war is still ongoing and the U.S. has made no serious effort to broker a peace deal.

    President Biden, Secretary Blinken, and their cheerleaders in the major media relentlessly deny that potential NATO expansion into Ukraine had anything to do with Russia’s invasion in 2022. Such an assertion, they claim, is Putin propaganda. However, the historical record does not support their story, “not one inch” of it.

    MOSCOW, July 25. /TASS/. Delegations from 49 African countries, including 17 led by heads of state, are set to attend the Russia-Africa summit this week, Kremlin foreign policy aide Yury Ushakov told reporters.

    The Kremlin aide said the summit will go ahead despite the actions of the West.

    "We will be able to hold the second Russia-Africa Summit in this situation, despite the counteraction of Western states, despite the exerted pressure — very strong, at times. And, of course, the Africans’ participation confirms their intent to strengthen ties with our country despite all circumstances," Ushakov said.

    "As of this day, attendance has been confirmed by 49 countries out of 54. More than half of them - 27 - are to be led by the most senior or the second most senior officials. I will tell you it’s 17 heads of state, 5 vice presidents, 4 heads of government and 1 speaker of parliament. Seventeen countries are to be represented by deputy prime ministers and ministers, mainly foreign ministers, and 5 countries are to be represented by their ambassadors," he said.

    The official said Russia has worked very hard and steadily to prepare for the upcoming summit.

    "This is a difficult event, especially due to the circumstances," he said. "We attach very great importance to this summit and hope it will be successful."

    The second Russia-Africa summit forum is scheduled to take place in St. Petersburg from July 27-28. An economic and humanitarian conferences are planned to run in parallel to the event. Like the previous forum, the event will be held under the motto For Peace, Security and Development. The Roscongress Foundation is the summit’s organizer while TASS is the summit’s photo hosting agency and media partner.

    Japan complains about Russian victory celebration

    Moscow recently renamed its Day of Military Glory as the ‘Day of Victory over Militaristic Japan’


    Japanese Foreign Minister Yoshimasa Hayashi has expressed regret over Russia’s decision to declare September 3 the Day of Victory over Militaristic Japan and the End of World War II.

    Hayashi’s comments on Friday echoed those previously made by Chief Cabinet Secretary Hirokazu Matsuno, who called Russia’s move “extremely regrettable” and warned that it “could not only stir anti-Japanese sentiment among the Russian people, but may also lead to anti-Russian sentiment among the Japanese people.”

    Earlier this year, Russia’s Foreign Ministry reiterated that “the subject of a peace treaty [with Tokyo]… has been closed for us.” According to Moscow, Japan’s “unfriendly” stance, supporting Ukraine in the conflict with Russia and joining the Western sanctions against the country, makes any further negotiations impossible.

    Reader's comments wrote:The world needs to remember the crimes the Japanese imperialism caused to humanity as well the Japanese people need to realize the crimes that USA imperialism committed against them.

    Closed... not frozen or on hold.

    No further negotiations or relations... this is going to effect trade.

    At the moment Russia is cutting foreign companies out of their major industries like oil and gas... how long before they cut Japan out of their gas projects which they need so they are continuing?

    They will claim it is an act of war but then the sanctions they have imposed against Russia could be called the same thing too...

    Arming and Funding a Proxy war against another country is literally an act of war, not that it means much to NATO+Non-Member Vassals. Psychopaths the lot of em'.

    Africa will never forget that West caged its children – Putin

    As late as 1957, “people from Africa were taken to Europe in cages... You can’t watch that without tears. Children sitting in cages, displayed for everyone to see,” Putin recalled. “No one in Africa will ever forget it.”

    The Russian president said the West has not abandoned its subjugation attempts. “Even now, they are trying to boss around and pursue their generally neo-colonial policies,” Putin said, explaining that Western countries have imposed trillions of dollars worth of loans on the region.

    The West has concocted a credit system with African countries which “by definition… does not allow them to pay back their loans. These are not credit relations; this is some kind of [punitive] indemnity,” he added.

    Russian Foreign Ministry:

    Russia withdraws from the Barents/Euro-Arctic Council

    This decision was taken after Finland failed to confirm its readiness to hand over the chairmanship to Russia in October 2023 in violation of the rotation principle, thus disrupting the necessary preparations.

    The Council's work has been virtually paralysed since March 2022.

    INFORMATION:
    The Council was established in 1993 for cooperation between Russia, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Iceland and the European Commission to develop and promote investment projects, develop the forestry sector in Northern Europe, simplify customs and border procedures and develop trade in the region.

    The US, promoting its interests in the East, is skilfully ruining relations between Europe and Russia.

    @djuric_zlatko
    ❗The main points of Sergey Lavrov's statements at the general political debate of the 78th session of the UN General Assembly:

    The United States of America and European countries make commitments and fail to fulfil them, the West is an "empire of lies";

    The task of inflicting a "strategic defeat" on Moscow has finally "blindsided" Western politicians;

    Today, for the first time since the founding of the UN in 1945, there is a chance for a genuine democratisation of world affairs; there is no other way;

    The burning of the Koran, the insulting of the Torah and the persecution of the Orthodox in the European Union are literally on the agenda;

    The USA is doing everything to prevent the Palestinians from getting their own state;

    Russia welcomes the process of normalisation of relations that has begun between Syria and Turkey and supports it together with Iran;

    Russia is alarmed by the escalation of military hysteria by the US and its allies around Korea, where the Americans are accumulating strategic potential;

    The EU is now imposing its mediation services on Azerbaijan and Armenia, destabilising the South Caucasus region together with the US;

    The Russian peacekeeping contingent will contribute in every possible way to the establishment of peaceful life in Nagorno-Karabakh;

    The US and its allies should abandon artificial restrictions on the redistribution of voting quotas in the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank;

    More equitable methods of constituting the UN Secretariat should be considered; the current criteria do not reflect the real weight of states in world affairs;

    Russia demands that Western countries immediately lift economic sanctions against Cuba, Venezuela and Syria;

    It is in the global interest to prevent a descent into a major war and the final collapse of international cooperation mechanisms;

    The vote by Germany, Italy and Japan against the resolution on the inadmissibility of the glorification of Nazism is an unfortunate fact and contradicts the conditions under which these countries were admitted to the United Nations.

    Germany voted against a resolution banning the glorification of Nazism on the grounds of free speech, yet ban Sputnik and Russia Today... so you can say nice things about Adolf Hitler but not about Putin or Russians.

    He wanted sanctions against Syria and Venezuela and Iran to be dropped, but not the sanctions against Russia because why would Russia want relations with these people?

    Lavrov was spitting in the west's face in a sophisticated way. He did not mention sanctions on Russia because Russia could care less.
    The NATzO west and its mighty sanctions is a stupid joke.

    Russia should work hard to help the non-NATzO world to get up on its feet. It is good for Russia but bad for the colonialist maggots
    who own NATzO.
