RUSSIA - Policy to End Western Monopoly

Arno Froese

Russian state media reported that President Vladimir Putin was set to approve a new foreign policy, as relations with the West sink to historic lows over the war in Ukraine and subsequent Western sanctions. 

“The Anglo-Saxons—and the rest of the collective West, unquestioningly submitting to them—seek to impose their dictates on world affairs at any cost,” Lavrov told lawmakers in Russia’s State Duma. 

“Our renewed foreign policy concept will focus on the need to end the West’s monopoly on shaping the framework of international life, which in the future must be determined not in its egoistic interests but on a fair, universal balance of interests.”

The Kremlin has often accused Western countries, led by the “Anglo-Saxon” United States and Britain, of trying to dominate global politics and meddle in others’ affairs, while seeking to suppress rising powers in Asia, Latin America and Africa., 15 February 2023

Arno's Commentary

This is the news behind the news; it is the other side of the Russia-Ukraine war, which seems to upset the world. While global chaos has not happened—and most likely will not—The direction the world is heading toward becomes clearer as time goes by. It’s no longer nation against nation and kingdom against kingdom, but gigantic agglomerations of nations—in this case, two: the West and the East. What can we expect? Learning from history, the conflict will end in negotiation toward compromise, or as Russia’s foreign minister Lavrov stated, “a fair, universal balance of interests.” 

To summarize, the god of this world, who rules both of these camps, will have to reveal himself one day. He will claim to be the savior of the world, the messiah of Israel, and the global benevolent leader. Second Thessalonians 2:4 describes him and his goal: “Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.”
