Bulgarian President: Kremlin Wants to Destabilize the Balkans
During his official visit to Germany, Bulgarian President Rosen Plevneliev warned that the Kremlin’s aggression is not limited to Ukraine or the territory of the former Soviet Union, but also threatens Southeastern Europe. “Today we see an aggressive and nationalistic Russia, which pursues a policy of restoring its influence,” remarked Plevneliev at a press conference in Berlin on May 9, adding that Russia was “creeping toward the Balkans” (Deutsche Welle, DPA, BTA Online, novinite.com, May 9).
Plevneliev stressed that Southeastern Europe is the “the weakest link in the European Union” and that this region can be destabilized from the inside using “nationalists, oligarchs, corruption, propaganda and energy dependence.” According to the Bulgarian president, the Kremlin employs oligarchs and their media, capitalizes on the lack of rule of law, and uses channels of influence from communist times. “It is true that the communist secret services were closed down, but their agents and networks continue to exist,” the Bulgarian president said during a lecture in Stuttgart on May 9, the Day of Europe (president.bg/speeches-and-statements, May 10).
Affirming the right of the Ukrainian people to determine their future, he urged the Kremlin to cease its subversive activities and support free elections in Ukraine. http://www.jamestown.org/single/?tx_ttnews%5Btt_news%5D=42374&no_cache=1#.VCdV7GddU9Q
3-31-14 Russian President Vladimir Putin has his eyes on eventually reclaiming Finland and the Baltic states of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia, according to Putin’s former top economic adviser, Andrey Illarionov.
Illarionov’s warning was reported in an interview with the Swedish paper SvD Nyheter (Svenska Dagbladet), which my Swedish political friends tell me is one of the most reputable papers in Sweden.
Illarionov, who was Putin’s top economic adviser and served as Russia’s representative to the G8, says that Putin isn’t planning on taking Finland and the Baltic states right now, butlong-term those are his plans. He says Putin also has his eyes on Belarus, located north of Ukraine and south of the Baltic countries. http://americablog.com/2014/03/putin-wants-finland-baltic-states-says-former-top-adviser.html
China, Iran to conduct joint naval exercises in defiance of U.S. interests
Special to WorldTribune.com from EastAsiaIntel.com
For the first time in four decades, a Chinese naval flotilla has visited the Islamic Republic of Iran, as U.S. deterrence and its military presence in the region wanes.
In subsequent talks, the two navies’ leaders agreed to hold a joint exercise in the Persian Gulf, a vital waterway for global oil supplies.
The U.S. Fifth Fleet is based nearby in Bahrain.
The People’s Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) flotilla includes the Chinese naval vessel Changchun, which is a Type 052C guided missile destroyer, and Changzhou, which is a guided missile frigate.
The flotilla entered the Iranian port of Abbas on Sept. 20 and engaged with the Iranian navy for 5 days. http://www.worldtribune.com/2014/09/26/china-iran-conduct-joint-naval-exercises-defiance-u-s-interests/
…human nature quickly becomes bored and constantly seeks the new, the exciting, the extravagant, the sensation. And you see how the money changers in the temples constantly play upon this factor of the human consciousness–that absence of constancy to go over and over and over again the precious Word. -Saint Germain: 1-2-1977 at Pasadena via Messenger ECP, see http://books.google.com/books?id=BF-VyyXgwxAC&pg=PA122&dq=clare+prophet+clarity+money&hl=en&sa=X&ei=M1onVJj3IcHcoAT2iILICQ&ved=0CDEQ6AEwAg#v=onepage&q=clare%20prophet%20clarity%20money&f=false
