How Today’s Profit Changes Priorities of Societies

The current system of global geopolitical coordinates is still dominated by the argument of force, pragmatism and subjective desire to obtain financial gain   Serhiy Polyovyk Some of the latest events in Europe and in the world in one way or another have affected Ukraine. For example, Denmark did grant Russia permission to lay the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline through its territorial waters. In other words, the Russians have overcome the obstacle to realizing their intention to build a gas pipeline to Europe bypassing Ukraine and traditional routs of transporting gas to European consumers.

Thus, Washington is trying to block the Gulf as a free economic region through imposing economic sanctions on both, Iran and the states that trade with it. The Persian Gulf clearly tracks the USA’s plan to…

The French President’s worldview on the development of Europe and the world, on keeping of basic European values, even in contrast to the US position, contradicts A. Merkel’s pragmatic German approach and…
