Russia on the Information War

Pavel Salin is director of the Center for Political Studies at the Financial University under the Russian Government.  This is translated from Russia, and gives their perspective on the information war they are still waging on many countries including the US.

 

Pavel Salin: Russia has dealt a serious blow to the image of the United States
Information details about Russia and how to properly respond to the expansion of the NATO bloc were given by Pavel Salin, director of the Center for Political Studies at the Financial University.

– Today we are talking about the West’s growing information war versus Russia. Do you agree with this and can you name the date of the beginning of this war?

– Yes, I think that the whole statement is correct. And it all began in 2014, after the Crimea joined Russia. Because the General Staff of the West identifies itself primarily with NATO, that is, a Western military machine with which the Russian military machine has to deal.

It so happened that not even after the collapse of the Soviet Union, and after the collapse of the Warsaw Treaty Organization, the NATO bloc actually lost the meaning of its existence. At one time they united against the Soviet threat, and now, when there is no Soviet bloc, the question arises, why NATO is needed.

All the 1990s, he was “hanging” in the air, in the zero years the North Atlantic alliance tried to find new impulses in the fight against terrorism, but it did not work out. NATO operations to eliminate terrorism in Iraq and Afghanistan have practically failed, and from the beginning of 2010 an urgent issue has arisen again.

And then, in 2014, the Crimea joined Russia, which was a serious slap in the face to the West, and NATO again gained the meaning of its existence. Now they are a bloc that guarantees protection against potential “Russian aggression” to its members, in particular, the Baltic countries and potential partners. That is, Russia by its actions has given NATO the meaning of existence.

As for the information war, it is clear that now the new era is information, and the theater of military operations is moving more and more into virtual space.

Now opponents are not measured in who has more “hardware”, but in who can take what measures in the information space. Naturally, if a “hot” war is an irreversible event, then an information war can be carried out with much less risks. And if psychological barriers to us in order to unleash a “hot” war are high enough for us, then in information wars this level is much lower. Continue reading “Russia on the Information War”

Grain of Salt, because from Pravda site, but their perspective is telling.  Trump is theirs, not ours.   He is restrained only by Congress.

 

 

“Big deal” Putin-Trump: Donbass in exchange for sanctions

Poroshenko summoned to “lookout” in Washington

In the morning on Monday, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko went to America on an official visit. This was reported by his press secretary Svyatoslav Tsegolko . The program “look” of the Ukrainian leader in Washington is extensive: in addition to meeting with US President Donald Trump , she includes talks with the head of the State Department Rex Tillerson and vice-president Michael Pence .

According to analysts, Poroshenko was called “on the carpet” so that Trump could personally clarify the situation in Ukraine before talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin on the margins of the G20 summit in Hamburg in July. There are signs that the US is going to offer Russia a “big bargain”, which will include the Ukrainian question.

Russians are looking to take over US healthcare market. If they’re heavily invested, that explains the Repu’bs actions. They could be shorting, too. Something’s definitely off about the AHCA.

Mikhail Fridman cashed out of his Russian oil venture near the top of the market and moved to London to build an empire in calmer climes. Then Brexit struck, reinforcing his determination to keep heading west.

With Britain’s decision to leave the European Union and sanctions over Ukraine muddying the investment waters from Moscow to Glasgow, Fridman and his three fellow Alfa Group billionaires are looking across the Atlantic and see a clear stream of profit in ever-higher spending on health care. With two Washington insiders in tow to help navigate the terrain, the Russians are preparing to invest as much as $3 billion in the industry over three years, starting in the U.S., where it accounts for almost a fifth of the economy.

“There are signals of a major tectonic shift in economic development happening before our eyes,” Fridman said in an interview in London.

Jeff Sessions Hidden Russian Connection

From Jeff Sessions hidden Russian connection has been found.

Jeff Sessions has testified about the Russia Investigation and his meetings with Ambassador Kislyak, which some claim is a normal move for people on the intelligence committee, except for a story from Vox which claimed that nobody else on the committee had done the same.

Sessions met with Ambassador Kislyak, widely known as being the top spymaster in the United States, at least twice. We also know that he made several trips to Russia in the 80s as part of a Church Group. Was that Church Group infiltrated by Russian intelligence, as this has been a normal function of the KGB/FSB for decades? It’s not a secret that Putin’s fake religiosity appeals to the religious right.

What nobody seems to be reporting is that Jeff Sessions is tied to one Dr. Ed Lozansky.

As Grant Stern and I have already covered in our ten part deep dive into the Lozanskyverse, Ed Lozansky is the man dotting all the I’s and crossing all the T’s to make Trump Russia happen.

Lozansky claims that he has held World Russia Forums since 1981, but he is stretching the truth. He supposedly held meetings as part of the Sakharov Institute from 1981 to 1986, but I have only been able to find proof of one such meeting, held at the Hoover Institute in 1984. It was at this meeting where Lozansky is credited with founding the Center for Democracy. Other people involved in the creation of the Center told me that he had nothing to do with it besides providing a location to have a meeting about it. Paul Manafort was also on the board of the Center. He just used it as padding for his resume, which seems to become a pattern throughout his life.

The World Russia Forum was not officially created until the year 2000 which is when it all gets very interesting.

Ed Lozansky and Russia House partnered with the Russian State owned news organization to create the “World Russia Forum” in 2000. What else happened during this time frame? Well, we know that Rupert Murdoch held a “Global Forum 2000” on 4/25, with Putin and Trump friend Hendy Kissinger. We also know that Gorbachev, Yeltsin, Clinton, and Pataki were on hand for the Second World Congress. Donald Trump was in New York on 4/29/2000, but was Putin?
