Putin speech to Russian diplomats: 'The time of U.S. world domination has ended'

Putin tells it as it is. The US is being corralled out of the entire world now.

As the waning days of US imperialism come and go and you see the last gasp efforts of a neocon agenda from the Middle East to the Ukraine to Afghanistan to the fines imposed on BNP and the reaction from Noyer of the French Central bank to Korea using the yuan as a settlement currency. With this comes a realization that life in west is about to change and these statements by Putin clearly set the Russian tone with the full backing of China. Have no doubt the two are in total accord in concert over their view of a multipolar world. 

Once the petrodollar loses a certain velocity, a new reality will unfold with more change than one might imagine and one consequence will be lower living standards in the west. The days of false wealth through the use of derivatives and their spawn are over. Wealth will be measured by actually building and selling things the world needs or creating technology that serves a purpose in the eyes of the world.

"According to Putin, the present crisis in Ukraine is a manifestation of the core Western policy of "deterring Russia" that continued despite the end of the Cold war. Putin announced Moscow would continue to defend the rights of Russian "compatriots" living abroad "using political, economic and self-defense humanitarian operations." He declared that the time of U.S. world domination has ended and Russia will be reintegrating the Eurasian landmass [former USSR], while promoting better relations with Europe, "which is our natural partner." The Russian foreign ministry was ordered to work on preparing "a joint space of economic and humanitarian cooperation from Lisbon to Vladivostok," based on absolute noninterference in internal political matters and excluding the U.S. Putin accused Washington of blackmailing Paris to stop the delivery of the French-built Mistral helicopter-carrying assault ships to the Russian Navy (kremlin.ru, July 1). The first Mistral is planned for delivery this year and it could be stationed in Sevastopol (Rossyskaya Gazeta, June 25)."

This week in Moscow President Vladimir Putin made a major foreign policy statement, while speaking to a worldwide gathering of Russian ambassadors and permanent diplomatic representatives. According to Putin, the West did not give Moscow a choice, but to move to annex Crimea last March to defend Russians and Russian-speakers "that consider themselves part of the wider Russian world" ("Ruskiy Mir"). Putin insisted that NATO planned to swiftly move its forces into Sevastopol and radically change the balance of power in the region, depriving Russia of everything it had been fighting for since the times of Tsar Peter the Great.

According to Putin, the present crisis in Ukraine is a manifestation of the core Western policy of "deterring Russia" that continued despite the end of the Cold war.

The first Mistral is planned for delivery this year and it could be stationed in Sevastopol (Rossyskaya Gazeta, June 25).

Putin's speech was controversial: while accusing the West of ignoring international law and interfering in others' affairs by promoting so called "democracy," Putin strongly asserted Russia's right to intervene in other nations internal affairs "to defend Russian compatriots abroad." The Kremlin rejects the West ideologically, politically and militarily, but Putin's speech did not spell out fully the practical part of the Russian foreign policy agenda (gazeta.ru, July1).
