West mistakenly believes that world can be ruled from Washington — Russian official

“The most important lesson from the past is that if any country tries to rule the world all by itself this will undoubtedly end in disaster,” he saidDirector of Russia’s Foreign Intelligence Service Sergei Naryshkin Mikhail Metzel/TASSDirector of Russia’s Foreign Intelligence Service Sergei Naryshkin© Mikhail Metzel/TASS

LONDON, June 20. /TASS/. Many Western politicians mistakenly believe that the entire world can be ruled from Washington, Director of Russia’s Foreign Intelligence Service and Chairman of the Russian Historical Society Sergei Naryshkin said in an interview with BBC on Friday.

“I think some politicians in the West had false expectations. They felt like that the world could be ruled from one centre – Washington,” he said. “The most important lesson from the past is that if any country tries to rule the world all by itself this will undoubtedly end in disaster.”

He recalled World War II lessons and drew attention to ongoing attempts to distort the public opinion about wartime events.

According to Naryshkin, many young people from Western countries believe that the United States on its own defeated Nazi Germany and liberated Europe.

On May 8, the White House published on Instagram a video of US President Donald Trump laying a wreath to a WWII memorial, with an inscription saying that the United States and the United Kingdom defeated Nazism on May 8, 1945.

On May 10, the Russian Foreign Ministry said Russia was outraged by US attempts to belittle the Soviet Union’s contribution into the victory over Nazi Germany, and was set to have serious discussions on the issue with US officials.

  • ”Continent has become paralyzed” by NATO’s converting EU into mercenaries for Washington Colonial Mindset !!!
    Senator Cruz is deeply concerned about the environment in Protecting Europe’s Energy Security Act …versus aggressive Putin and WTI below $??? and Shale owing more than $200 billion to lenders …
    Stoltenberg appointed Thomas de Maizière and A. Wess Mitchell, to help ensure NATO isn’t brain dead!!! reflection process to further strengthen NATO’s political dimension!!!
    Over five months, 2019 from May until the end of September, 93 separate military exercises were held, with forces operating continuously in, above and around 29 countries, no fewer than seven separate NATO war games were held: Arrow and Bold Quest in Finland, Spring Storm in Estonia, Formidable Shield off the coast of Scotland, Immediate Response in Croatia, Hungary and Slovenia, Stolen Cerberus VI in Greece, and Erciyes in Turkey. …. NATO’s modest $1.65 billion annual running costs
    Atrophy democracy triumfalismus …..US/Western Elite’s “Propaganda Democracy, HR, Sanctions,…” as pretext of Colonial Mindset!!!
    Our World: “Human Rights and Democracy Gunpowder Mill” through $ gun-barrel of arms sales 2017: US $226.6 billion + NATO Eu alliance: 80%+ = $320 billion+ of total global arms sales $398.2 billion. There are 42 US arms companies in Top 100, collective sales $226.6 billion. Lockheed Martin as world’s largest arms producer, $44.9 billion. Russian 10 companies at Top 100, $37.7 billion, China $54.1 billion …..Saga on holding to the Colonial Power as GB of 18-19th centuries?
    “Defence” spending 2018 US $649 billion, China 250, SA 67.6, Ind 66.5, Fr 63.8, Ru 61.4, GB 50, Ger 49.5, Jap 46.6, S Kor 43.1, …
    United States still maintains nearly 800 military bases in more than 70 countries and territories abroad-from giant “Little Americas” to small radar facilities. Britain, France and Russia, by contrast, have about 30 foreign bases combined.
    “Increasingly Losing Its Standing On World Stage” in HR???. Value conflicts have roots in a cultural and political divide. Despite initial expectations, globalization has not replaced the world of nation-states, but rather introduced new conditions under which national identities, values and institutions express themselves by reviving old ideas and practices!!! …populisms???
    Militaries of Poland (Aleksander Kwaśniewski), Denmark (Rasmussen as PM, later as NATO Secretary …and NS2 anapproval?) together with militaries of USA, GB and Australia “introduced democracy” into Iraqu?? …is this really acting as a community of NATO Alliance ?
    The Road to Unfreedom …America both can and should spread democracy. It just needs to do so more effectively (Michael McFaul)…..as in Iraque, Libia, Yeman, Syria, ….with 100,000’s dead, millions in camps and running!!! Flooding Europe ….with populisms!!! feeding frenzies? ….EU’s transatlantic puppets and …Victoria Nuland’s “Fu.. EU”!!! State’s DNA culture.
    NS2 highly controversial?? and clear message of U.S. policy to US NATO’s “Subservient Protectorate of EU”!!! Maybe Mr Richard Grenell would like to include in his demand change of the “Traditional Family Values Law” in Russia?

    Low Ruble exchange (thanks to sanctions)=Transit payed by Gasprom in Rubles to Gasprom into the entry point at Germany!!
    North Stream 2 Phobia and NATO’s Mercenaries as Danish Anders Fogh Rasmussen (paid in hryvnias. Extra 2,000km transit: €4/MWh(94.79m3) gas via Ukraine versus €2/MWh via NS 1; Arctic north with reserves for many decades and as main source of production!
    The avoidance of land and thereby transit fees in bl’s$ to Ukr, Sk, Cz or Blr, Pol; and Transit payed by Gasprom in Rubles to Gasprom into the entry point at Germany!! Only 1 compressor 220bar instead 10? of 100bar every 120km (extra equipment, maintenance, personal)??
    Offshore pipeline 200bar REQUIRE 70% LESS MW POWER/VOLUME/1200km (reff to Yamal)!! This savings of distance, expenses, CO2 environment are paying for NS2 and checking gas prices (LNG?) for Eu consumers. Gasprom’s annual 1-2 bl$ ?? saving!!
    Europe’s Coal power output 5,289TWh in 1990 down 42% to 3,057TWh in 2015!!! Gas CCGT’s with efficiency 63% are complementary to Solar and Wind generations and to replace coal burning plants (2015) in Ger (42%, 48GW), Pol (80%, 29GW), Cz (52%), …to environmental requirements for renewable energy!! …and heating element (industrial, residential) of these gas power plants, not only electric!!! …
    to be GREEN as of 2017 it would require extra additional gas to replace COAL:
    Ger 242TWh = 32 blm3/a, Pol 131TWh = 17.3 blm3/a, Cz 45TWh = 5.7 blm3/a, … ??!! + nuclear Ger 76TWh = 10 blm3/a …total extra gas German requirement 42 blm3/a, Poland 17.3 blm3, Cz 5.7 blm3, … !!!
    Poland with 33 (66%) cities among the 50 most-polluted (CO2) cities in Eu in 2017 …HEATING COAL(Russian? Donbas? 10mlt/a?), additional requirement for more blm3 of GAS to save lives from CO2 !!!
    GREEN Eu FUTURE …DECARBONISE ..(2017 Carbon mlt: Ger 762, Pol 315, Cz 103) dominating carbon capture & storage (CCS) process (versus electrolysis, H2 has 1/3 energy of CH4/volume) based on natural gas to play a significant role for several decades!!!
    2017 Global Gas Production: 3,680.4blm3 …Traded 1,134.1blm3 !!!
    via Pipeline 740.7blm3 …via LNG 393.4blm3 (302.6mlt)
    LNG 302.6mlt = …4,000?? tanker loads (of 20 days journey?,300-400 tankers/a?)
    Europe imported eight times more gas by pipeline than in the form of LNG in 2017.
    LNG? …Arctic productions 10-15% more efficient; CO2 emissions 20-40% higher than piped gas delivery.
    Low Ruble exchange (thanks to sanctions) = cheeper labor costs in gas extraction, distribution for export, it is advantage to Russian exporters !!! Gazprom’s Siberian production costs are $0.90/MMBtu (28.3m3) and it has $1.20 transport tariff to the border of export.
    1MWh = 94.79m3 NG = 3.41MMBtu; …1MMBtu = 28.3m3 NG = 0.341MWh Transportation 1.0€ = 1MWh/1000km = 94.79m3 NG/1,000km; Ukraine E/W 1,500km?? ~3.0bl$/a?? …1.5€ = 94.79m3/1,500km (2.0$x150blm3 NG??); 200blm3 NG = 150mlt LNG(~2000 cargos???) = 2,400TWh, Gasprom’s Export to Eu !!! …Naftogaz Ukr “plans B,…” Damocles Sword? of Russian gas as prolonged agony!!!

    Yamal Poland: 33blm3/a, 84bar, 1.42m; 684km, 400MW (5 comp sta’s)
    North Stream1: 55blm3/a, 220bar, 1.22m; 1,224km, 366MW (1 comp station)
    Fuel gas: NS1 ….9.2mlm3/10blm3/100km …100.0%
    Yamal Poland ..17.7mlm3/10blm3/100km ….192.6% !!!
    Poland 400MW ….fuel gas 2015: 378 mlm3 (2018: 400mlm3)/683km 
    Ukr 2019 fuel gas (compressors) 2.4(3.1) blm3/a …of 89.6 blm3/a…as 2.68%!!!

    Western “Intellectual Freedom Right” denied to Americans by American Academia! Aleksandr Isayevich Solzhenitsyn *Dec 11,1918 …100YEARS. …American Academia CryptoBolshevism and Alexander Solzhenitsyn’s ban! Bolshevik’s ban of Aleksandr Isayevich Solzhenitsyn at 1970’s ….versus ADL, AJC, AIPAC, ICJP, Kennan, NED, CSIS, Cato’s “Delenda est Carthago”, ….American academia’s ban? Democracy and intellectual freedom preachers and propaganda reality contradiction. People who deny access to intellectual freedom act are overstepping their moral obligation to Americans and getting us into Orwellian world of arrogance and hypocrisy. Russian speaking Chabad-Lubavitch in USA have choice to read or not to read Alexander Solzhenitsyn’s books “Two Hundred Years Together” as offered on Amazon, but to the “rest” of Americans this is absolutely denied! Who is writing reviews actually for these Solzhenitsyn’s books? …not the “rest”!!!

    American Library Association: “Intellectual freedom is the right of every individual to both seek and receive information from all points of view without restriction.”
    Away from commissars in the candle’s light we read samizdats pages of this Great Humanist writer with hope to get into hands few more typewritten following pages (in 1960’s) and now…….few decades later, several time zones west we are back to candle’s light with Solzhenitsyn’s work, “Two hundred years together” still not published in English (lingua franca) after more then 10 years, which should be part of educational curriculum pointing to man who stand-up to the evils of totalitarian oppression,…..and opening window to those events. Commissars of Thought Police in the forefather’s footsteps as in early years of 20th century Great Russia regions are mostly giving literary reviews to the contemporary goyims, as the historians, professors in higher learning. Behind accusation of “anti semitism” they are imposing their supreme judge Newspeak Correctness. Solzhenitsyn wrote not because of Nobel Price, but as human being who stand-up to the evils of totalitarian oppression with their Gulags and Thought Police. Western commissars at the time of Cold War priced his bravery, admired underground samizdats of forbidden literature & smuggling Bibles into USSR. But now, zealous “New Speakers” gained English publishing rights for the purpose to actually completely block globally printing of Solzhenitsyn’s books. Maybe, we should ask Mr Putin to samizdat Alexander Solzhenitsyn’s “200 years together” in English and underground smuggling into “free press” our world. This is “free press” witch is lecturing others all over the world, or are we really free from this New Correctness, or in Dark Age under totalitarian Thought Police?
    Taboo discourse addressed by Solzhenitsyn’s books was well documented in the writings of 1920’s, 30’s,….(as Winston Churchill)..but it was pronounced as anti-semite, lunatic and sealed in “Taboo box” by these historians, professors of higher learning commissars, it did not fit in theirs interpretation of “Official History”. Now, we entered with English non publication of Solzhenitsyn’s books into another stage of “Pandora Taboo Box” to be kept closed by American academia’s ban!!!

    I red 50-70% of this book in Czech PDF, but I would like have English edition. Czech books are not available and reediting got into International Tribe of Thought Police death hole. What coincidence? ….German and French editions have been published,….as “Intellectual freedom right” applied !!!
