“Washington does not want to see European and Russian economies integrating on the vital issue of trade in oil and gas, the foundation for economic and social development,” the commentator pointed out.He noted that the enormous oil and gas volumes supplied by Moscow have led to the substantial alignment of the European and Russian economies over the past two decades after the end of the Cold War between the US-led West and the former Soviet Union.
Tense standoff after North/South Korean artillery exchange ~ link ~ Tensions flared on the Korean Peninsula yesterday as the South Korean military responded to a North Korean live fire exercise with an artillery barrage of its own. Hundreds of shells fell into waters near the disputed maritime boundary, known as the Northern Limit Line, to the west of the peninsula.
Yesterday, North Korea notified the South Korean 2nd Navy Fleet Command by fax that it intended to carry out live fire drills in seven areas close to the five front-line islands in the Yellow Sea. Some 100 North Korean shells out of 500 landed in waters claimed by South Korea, which responded with its own artillery, unleashing more than 300 rounds into North Korean waters.

The vote passed by the parliament on Tuesday allows for the banning of Right Sector if it refuses to give up arms. The decision was supported by 256 MPs, while the minimum needed to legitimate it is 220 votes.
Kiev also plans an additional set of war games with Poland, as well as joint ground operations with Moldova and Romania.
The move came as military tensions between NATO and Russia continued to escalate on several fronts, belying claims that the world's most serious geo-political clash since the Cold War is subsiding.
The diplomatic body also said it was 'considering all options' as it studied new steps to bolster its military presence in eastern Europe - reportedly including a western presence in Armenia, Azerbaijan and the Republic of Moldova.

The Japanese government is renewing arms exports after decades of an absolute ban on the trade of defense equipment and technologies. Japan’s neighbors expect them to move away from the pacifist stance fixed in the country’s post-WWII constitution.
On Tuesday, after nearly half a century of exemplary pacifist policies, Japan’s conservative government of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe approved a modified, more relaxed version of the three basic principles of the nation’s arms exports.
Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said Russia's annexation of Ukraine's Crimea region was the gravest threat to European security for a generation.

Poland eager to accelerate NATO military buildup - with video ~ link ~ Warsaw has called the pace of NATO increasing its military presence in Poland ‘unsatisfactory’ and is set to act to boost it, Prime Minister Donald Tusk announced ahead of the military alliance’s gathering in Brussels. “We are gaining something step by step, but the pace of NATO increasing its military presence for sure could be faster. You remember the endless debates about the missile shield, with mediocre results,” Tusk told a press conference Tuesday, as cited by Reuters. “This is an unsatisfactory result for us.”
The Polish Prime Minister’s comments referred to earlier statements by Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski, who said that he would be fully satisfied if NATO located two heavy brigades in the country.

For four days ending Sunday, a quartet of presidential hopefuls trooped to Las Vegas to attend the annual gathering of the Republican Jewish Coalition.
Impresario: Sheldon Adelson, the Vegas-Macau casino mogul whose fortune is estimated at $39 billion – 8th richest man on the planet – and who dumped $92 million into the election of 2012.
Adelson kept Newt Gingrich alive with a $15 million infusion of ad money, gutting Romney, and then sank $30 million into Mitt’s campaign.
This time Sheldon wants to buy himself a winner.
Ari Fleischer, press secretary to Bush 43, and a member of Adelson’s RJC fiefdom, put it plain and simple: “The ‘Sheldon Primary’ is an important primary. … anybody running for the Republican nomination would want to have Sheldon at his side.”
One such man is Jeb Bush, son and brother to presidents, who was the prize bull at Sheldon’s cattle show. Daniel Ruth of the Tampa Bay Times speculates on Jeb’s motive in showing up:
“Would you slink into Las Vegas to schmooze gambling mogul Sheldon Adelson who regards GOP presidential nominees as if they were trophy heads mounted in his den, if you had no interest in the White House? Bush is not going to Vegas to catch Meat Loaf’s act at Planet Hollywood.”
The 2016 presidential hopefuls “are falling at his feet,” said a veteran Republican strategist of the 80-year-old oligarch. Each of those who came – Bush, Chris Christie, and Govs. Scott Walker and John Kasich – apparently auditioned, one by one, before the godfather.
Free-fall: IMF to accelerate Ukraine's economic collapse ~ link ~ The globalists and Zionist are parasites who excel in war, rape and pillage of civilians! Stirling
Will Maidan optimism be extinguished as the citizens of Ukraine realize their economic plight means considerable imminent hardship?
Ukraine is bankrupt. It has wavered on the cusp for some time. However, it is about to suffer the cruelest indignity: discovering that Western politicians who promised prosperity have been encouraging the IMF to deliver a leveraged poisoned chalice.
Maidan dreams are turning abruptly into a nightmare as coup gives way to penury. Siren voices from the West have lured the Ukrainian economic ship on to the rocks with the IMF about to launch a lifeboat - replete with economic subjugation as bondholders get paid and citizens suffer.
