Russian-Led Military Alliance Gears to Challenge NATO in Eurasia, as Russia-Japan Draw Closer

In this eleventh edition of the Russian Newspapers Monitor, Professor Filip Kovacevic discusses the front-page articles from four Russian newspapers: Rossiyskaya Gazeta, Nezavisimaya Gazeta, Izvestia, and Trud. He focuses on the current state of negotiations between the Russian president Vladimir Putin and the Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe, the geopolitical and military situation in Syria after the fall of Aleppo, the Russian-led military alliance (ODKB) plans to challenge NATO in Eurasia, the new Russian government strategy of scientific and research development until 2035, and the recent false statements on Russian economy by the Russian prime minister Dmitry Medvedev who, Professor Kovacevic believes, is on his way out of the government.

  1. Looks like Russia is being lured into a second “Afgan war”, hopefully Russia has learned the lesson and Trump will actually walk his talk

  2. I’m not` sure about ODKB allegiance, read an article not long ago(don’t remember the source) that the countries in the alleged alliance are not that ready to stick with Russia no matter what
