Protests in Ecuador, Bolivia, Chile and a Revenge of Left-wing Forces in Argentina

ПРИЧИНИ ЦИХ ПОДІЙ І НАСЛІДКИ ДЛЯ РЕГІОНУ

Катерина Вакарчук

Середина осені відзначилася багатьма подіями в країнах Латинської Америки. На перший погляд, протести в Болівії, Еквадорі та Чилі мають багато спільного у своїй основі, але є там і відмінності. Аргентинці, розчаровані правлінням представника правих сил М. Макрі, обрали на президентських виборах 27 жовтня ц. р. кандидата від лівоцентристів А. Фернандеса. Ще більш цікавий факт, що віце-президентом стала екс-президент Аргентини К. Кіршнер, яка керувала країною два терміни, протягом 2007–2015 років.

Катерина Вакарчук

Глобальна кліматична криза стала тією темою, якій приділяли найбільше уваги у серпні та вересні ц. р. Криза світової екосистеми та вихід з під контролю людини змін клімату вийшли на перший план, потіснивши проблеми тероризму, війни та миру, прав людини, боротьби з бідністю і міграції. Пожежі в Амазонії, що набули нечуваних масштабів, виникли внаслідок неконтрольованої вирубки лісів

Kateryna Vakarchuk   The Political and Economic Situation in July 2019   Events in July 2019 were full of Latin American countries leaders’ various trips to and meetings in different corners of the world. For example, the President of Ecuador is trying to dramatically change his country’s foreign policy, seeking allies in the EU. The President of Bolivia is further promoting the socialist path of his country’s development, enlisting Russia’s support on the international stage.

Kateryna Vakarchuk The Political and Economic Situation in June 2019   June 2019, was a month of serious events in South America. In particular, as far as Venezuela is concerned, the international community’s interest to the country will not fade; Bolivia is protesting against the 15-year reign of dictator Evo Morales; Mexico and the United States are negotiating on settling the migration crisis. But the MERCOSUR community after the G20 summit in Japan may be happy with the establishment of most beneficial in history relations with the European Union.      The article is available in Ukrainian

Kateryna Vakarchuk The Political and Economic Situation in May 2019   The countries of Latin America are conducting their own foreign policy courses, seeking new allies and partners. This time, the Cuban leadership, under Helms-Burton Act, in May 2019,  made a number of visits  to countries that provided support to Cuba  in its struggle  against US sanctions, and, interestingly, the European Union was on this list. Venezuela is recovering after Juan  Guaido’s unsuccessful attempt to consolidate power throughout the country and get the military’s support. Brazilian President after 100 days in…

Kateryna Vakarchuk The Political and Economic Situation in April 2019   Latin America is a region that dynamically integrates into global international processes with every year coming, and becomes involved in high-profile events, often acting as a subject engaged in solving important international issues. For example, Ecuador, which seems to be far from active global political life, attracted the attention of world media by the arrest of the scandalous journalist Julian Assange. President of Bolivia, Evo Morales, has made breakthroughs in foreign policy, in particular, has established close ties with Turkey. By the way, the similarity of the political figures of the Presidents…

Kateryna Vakarchuk The Political and Economic Situation in March 2019   March of 2019 can be considered hard for Venezuela. Despite the humanitarian support provided to it by many countries, the situation remains too complex. The visit of members of the British royal family to Cuba can be considered life-changing, because it is, in fact, a breakthrough of current Cuban diplomacy. Perhaps in the future, the United States will change its position on Cuba. Spain continues to demonstrate not only its cultural and historical ties, but also economic ones with its former colonies. Mexico is still not very active in resolving the problem of…

Kateryna Vakarchuk The Political and Economic Situation in February 2019   How Oil Deposits Excite Democracy In February 2019 the situation in some Latin American countries (especially in Venezuela) was tense. The region largely supports the interim President of Venezuela Juan Guaido. However, a new election has not been appointed, and N. Maduro’s regime is quite “alive”, thanks to the army and all security forces’ loyalty to him. Colombia and Chile have put forward the initiative to create a new regional bloc — PROSUR. The Cuban leadership is determining foreign policy directions, actively meeting with leaders of other countries, in particular Russia and Italy. At this, the world community…
