Russian foreign spy chief Sergey Naryshkin published an informative article at the National Defense magazine earlier this week about “The current international military-political situation and trends in its development”. It’s in Russian but Google Translate does a decent job conveying his main points. The US-led West’s censorship of Russian officials, institution, and media means that many in that civilizational bloc might not be aware of his article, which is why the purpose of this present piece is to bring a summary of its contents to their attention.
Naryshkin declared that the US-led West’s preplanned and unprecedented response to Russia’s ongoing special military operation in Ukraine accelerated the preexisting multipolar trends connected with the global systemic transition to multipolarity. Washington wants to prolong this European conflict in order to turn it into another Afghanistan despite the impossibility of fulfilling that scenario for geographic and strategic reasons. Since it won’t fight Russia directly, it’s waging a Hybrid War against it that includes economic, informational, humanitarian, and “cancel culture” dimensions.
Another point that he makes is that the US-led West is trying to convince their people that impending economic hardships are purely Russia’s fault. Naryshkin, however, refutes his weaponized information warfare narrative. He powerfully declared that “the Western elites are simply using the current situation to implement long-cherished plans for the de facto liquidation of the middle class in the spirit of the well-known scenario proposed by the Davos World Economic Forum: ‘By 2030 you will have nothing and you will be happy!’”
Far-reaching socio-political changes are also underfoot in the West as well. According to him, the Western masses are turning against their rulers, though they might replace them not with genuine democrats but with a “total and undisguised liberal-Nazi dictatorship”. Naryshkin also drew an intriguing comparison between the declining unipolar American hegemon and the former Soviet Union. He said that the US is aggressively imposing an ideology onto others that its own elite themselves no longer truly believe him. His innuendo is that America’s collapse might not be all that far away.
The Global South is closely watching the Western Eurasian theater of the New Cold War between Russia and the US. Naryshkin praised the Saudi, Pakistani, Turkish, Indian, and Emirati leaders for refusing to submit to the US-led West’s pressure to sanction his country. They understand that the unipolar world order has collapsed, thus making its ideology of liberal universalism obsolete. The emerging world order that’s replacing it will be fair and stable, though it’s still in the process of being constructed. Nevertheless, it’s being collectively pursued by Russia and its dozens of partners in the Global South.
To wrap it all up, Naryshkin’s article should be an eye-opener for those among the Western masses who end up becoming aware of it and especially those who consider reading this brief piece in full using Google Translate. They deserve to know that Russia’s top spy believes that their elite are manipulating the people’s perception of events in order to impose the World Economic Forum’s evil plans upon them to “have nothing and be happy”, not to mention his prediction about their liberal-Nazi dictatorship future. If more Westerners are made aware of these plots, they might one day be able to stop them.
