Business ‘We Will Strive to Ensure a New World Order’: Vladimir Putin Outlines Plans for the EU

Here’s what many will not find the “feel good” story of the day:

In an article published just before Russia’s upcoming election,
Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin calls on eurozone leaders to
consider the idea of creating what he calls a “Union of Europe.”

“That’s right,” writes Business Insider’s
Adam Taylor, “a Union of Europe, not a European Union — a free trade
zone (and perhaps more) stretching from ‘Lisbon to Vladivostok.’”

As Taylor notes, there’s a certain element of “schadenfreude” in Putin’s article, especially when he writes:

Russia is actively participating in the international
effort to support the ailing European economies, and is consistently
working with its partners to formulate collective decisions under the
auspices of the IMF. Russia is not opposed in principle to direct
financial assistance in some cases.

The Russian PM, “with a tone of a distant if kindly uncle,” as the New York Times put it, outlines his plans for both Russia and the EU [emphasis added]:

Russia is part of the greater world whether we are
talking about the economy, the spread of information or the development
of culture. We do not wish to and cannot isolate ourselves…

However, we intend to be consistent in proceeding from our own
interests and goals rather than decisions dictated by someone else.
Russia is only respected and has its interests considered when the
country is strong and stands firmly on its own feet. Russia has
generally enjoyed the privilege of conducting an independent foreign
policy…I am convinced that global security can only be achieved through
cooperation with Russia rather than by attempts to push it into the
background, weaken its geopolitical position or compromise its defenses.

I do not doubt that we will continue on our constructive course to
enhance global security, renounce confrontation, and counter challenges
like the proliferation of nuclear weapons, regional conflict and
crises…We will do everything we can to see that Russia enjoys the latest
achievements in scientific and technical progress and to assist our
entrepreneurs in occupying their rightful place in the world market.

We will strive to ensure a new world order, one that meets
current geopolitical realities, and one that develops smoothly and
without unnecessary upheaval

Wait, what? We’re now striving for a “new world order”? That’s… well… that’s disconcerting.

His article continues:

…Russia proposes moving toward the creation of a common
economic and human space from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean – a
community referred by Russian experts to as “the Union of Europe,” which
will strengthen Russia’s potential and position in its economic pivot
toward the “new Asia.”

The crisis that has struck the eurozone cannot but affect Russia’s
interests, especially if one considers that the EU is our major foreign
economic and trade partner. Likewise, it is clear that the prospects of
the entire global economic structure depend heavily on the state of
affairs in Europe…We have a stake in ensuring a strong EU…It is in our
interests to realize the enormous potential of the Russia-EU

I propose again that we work toward creating a harmonious community of
economies from Lisbon to Vladivostok, which will, in the future, evolve
into a free trade zone and even more advanced forms of economic

He goes on to explain that “free trade zones” can be realized if,
among other things, eurozone leaders consider easing visa rules and
agree to more cooperation in certain industries (specifically gas).

    And the lead agitators will be the OWS movement. I can see that. It's going to be a long hot summer and fall courtesy of Obama and his OWS vermin, not to mention the Black Muslim populations.

    Oh that is just the beginning. Israel has to attack Iran too. The 1 million jihadist rise up and mindlessly attack everyone. The La Raza crowds does the same. Only when the military is installed as the gov't would these uprising be all put down. We are not going to have another election.

    Putin is posed to take over Europe. By becoming dependent on Russia's oil and gas, they are now at his mercy.
  • Theresa 2012/03/04 17:45:54
    Look People this is all been Planned for years! EU collapses because of bad money. Russia shuts off Gas and Oil due to non payment. The Islamists attack everywhere. In the USA the OWS and leftist attack all people who they think did the world harm. It is called the Day of Hate. You know what is funny. In the USA 80% of the casualties will be unarmed Jews. The rest fundamentalist Christians. Of course in the USA the people who will put this madness down will be gun toting American Citizens.

    I think it is just an opportunity for anti American PR by Putin.
  • Annette Sawdust... 2012/03/05 15:58:49
    True, but he does really have designs on taking over Europe, very akin to what 0vomit is trying to do here.
  • Sawdust... Annette 2012/03/05 18:06:31 (edited)
    Yes, agreed. The anti-American PR shot is like getting a free desert. Claiming to be the good guy who is going to rebuild ___________(fill in the blank) after the evil American Empire has wrought Death, Despair and Destruction, is Putin's equivalence of HOPE AND CHANGE.

    Wait, hummmmm, evil America, ........ it's the same as Hope and Change.

    It is a direct use of Obama's anti-America rhetoric and possible due to his weakness in foreign relations.
