Russia Rejects U.S. Military Plans Against North Korea

In the forty-sixth edition of the Russian Newspapers Monitor, Professor Filip Kovacevic discusses the articles from four Russian newspapers: Rossiyskaya Gazeta, Trud, Nezavisimaya Gazeta, and Sovietskaya Rossiya. He discusses the dramatic escalation of tensions in the U.S.-Russia diplomatic relations and explains why the Russian Consulate in San Francisco was chosen to be shut down. In addition, he focuses on the recent BRICS summit in China and discusses the Russian approach to the North Korean crisis. Lastly, he elaborates on what troubles the most the average Russian citizen in the six months leading to the Russian presidential election of 2018.

  1. Interesting update, Prof.

    It’s always a safe bet predicting the Deep State will do the stupid thing. You have to be intellectually challenged to think you can surgically neutralize North Korea. Or maybe their objective has always been, with their acts of violence everywhere, to just cause chaos. I’m sure they imagine S Korea will cling more tightly to them if N Korea went hot. Leverage to coerce China? Or they just like the idea of distracting chaos on the Chinese border, Chechnya/Syria/et al-style.

    The question is will other ‘decent’ nations stand by and let them commit more atrocities?

  2. I’m really starting to wonder now with all these sanctions being slapped onto all these countries (Russia, Iran, North Korea, China(?) and all the others I’ve forgotten.
    Who is isolating who?
    Or maybe better worded: Who is being isolated by who?
    Is this a double-edged sword yielded by the hidden player that is playing one side off against the other?
    Fill in the blank(s) as to who the hidden player(s) is(are).

  3. Dr Kovacevic I wonder why you ended your presentation quite short without the customary ‘be cool and stay cool’?

  4. Jacek Stanislawski says:

    Both videos and an audio are corrupted: high-res video stops at 8:32, low-res and audio are cut short at 23:30.

  5. Max Havelaar says:

    I do not believe Pacom will strike North-Korea without China’s and Russia ‘s consent. They have objected so far.
    These floating navy vessels can be sunk. The US boots will not make the difference anyhow.

    The only rational option for this planet is a peace treaty, fair trade and prosperity for all.

    But maybe the MADdogs are REALLY MAD.
    (Vidz are fixed.)

  6. Max Havelaar says:

    Not even Maddog Mattis will attack N-Korea, because of their conventional military strength, mainly MPLS and longrange artillery (60 km) + some nukes.

    Jimmy Carter , Putin, The pentagon and all insiders know: North Korea is a sideshow to distract from other matters.
