We can surely interpret Lavrov’s statement below in a number of ways, but I think the most plausible is the optimistic literal translation of the phrase, “redistribution of resources” 😉
Lavrov: Certain Group of Countries Keeps ‘Imposing Its Recipes on Everyone Else’
A mark of our time is the redistribution of resources in the world structure.
“A mark of our time is the redistribution of resources in the world structure. The domination of a single civilization is becoming history; new centers of economic growth and financial powers are emerging. And with economic and financial influence comes a political one. We are seeing it in a number of cases,” the minister said in a meeting with representatives of the Russian Youth Public Chamber.
As an example, Lavrov emphasized the role of Asia-Pacific, Latin American and African nations, which have formed regional organizations.
“Thus, the world is becoming truly polycentric, multipolar. Competition is intensifying – not only in economy, finance, politics, but also in the area of values, development models,” Russia’s Foreign Ministry chief concluded.
Lavrov: Russia Wants to Participate in Latin American Integration Processes
“We are interested in the formation of a regular mechanism of political dialogue and cooperation within the framework of CELAC [Community of Latin American and Caribbean States],” the foreign minister said.
He added that Russia “welcomes the proactive role of Venezuela in promoting integration processes in Latin America” and appreciates its significant contribution to the development of relations between Russia and the new institutions.
Lavrov said that the two countries will continue working on practical cooperation projects.
Venezuela is the second-largest trade and economic partner of Russia in Latin America after Brazil. Russian companies such as Gazprom, Rosneft and Lukoil are currently working in Venezuela.
Russian Senator: “Russia Supports Multipolar World, Rejects Exceptionalism”
On US Attempts to Halt the Process of Eurasian Economic Integration
Speaking about the integration processes of the Eurasian Economic Union, Klimov noted that “in her own time, Mrs. Clinton, as Secretary of State, said that under no circumstances should Eurasian integration ‘in the Russian scenario’ be allowed.”
Klimov noted that since then the US has been searching for “weak links” and is willing to use “any means necessary” to “destabilize the situation in the countries that neighbor Russia,” noting that such destabilization measures have most recently been realized in Ukraine.
“They have already done what they could [in Ukraine]…the system has already been broken…the abscess has been created, the crisis is set to last a long time, and their direct control [over events] is no longer necessary,” Klimov said.
“They are trying to work via our neighbors. Now in Yerevan [Armenia] there are attempts to create unrest. There are similar attempts in Kazakhstan,” he added.
Presently, “the Kazakh people are being told by someone via local NGOs that their Russian neighbors have some not-very-good thoughts with regard to Kazakhstan. And we are also told through various ‘experts’ that we will lose more through the Eurasian Union than we gain.”
Noting the aftermath of the color revolutions and other destabilization attempts, Klimov stated that former Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili is presently having trouble entering the US, noting that “our Ukrainian colleagues would do well to see how the great friendship with Uncle Sam ends.”
…On the European Economic Crisis, Financial Bubble:
EU accounts for more than 60% of all social spending worldwide” despite having a population of only 600 million people. At the same time, the EU’s contribution to global GDP is only 15 percent. Obviously someone has to pay for the difference.
At the ASEP forum in Rome, Klimov noted that he had heard figures during the course of discussions which he had found interesting; he had discovered that “the EU accounts for more than 60% of all social spending worldwide” despite having a population of only 600 million people. At the same time, the EU’s contribution to global GDP is only 15 percent. Obviously someone has to pay for the difference.
These questions are very worrisome to people who represent countries which make a much greater contribution to the creation of [global] GDP.”
Klimov said that “the fact that the discussion took place in Italy only made it more relevant, considering that unemployment among the country’s youth stands at 40 percent today. Imagine such a high unemployment rate in our country. It would result in a tremendous outcry, and justifiably so… Against this background, it is understandable that when such tremendous resources are spent on social needs, the region becomes attractive to immigrants…and now in the EU there is no idea about what to do with this issue. On one hand, the unions attempt to prevent the bar from being lowered; while on the other hand, their economies haven’t been capable of dealing with the problem for a long time, and money and other financial instruments are utilized. All of this affects the world financial system’s [stability], since this bubble is set to burst sooner or later; similar processes are occurring in the United States; this is what the discussions [in Milan] were about.”
Growing International Interest Toward the Eurasian Union and BRICS
Klimov noted that among parliamentary circles and foreign business communities, interest in the Eurasian Union project and the five BRICS economies “is greater even than in our own country…Our people seem to have become accustomed to thinking on the scale of Russia, which of course is correct, and they have not yet come to understand that the Eurasian Economic Union is a new supranational entity whose decisions are binding for participating countries; there are a lot of interesting processes taking place in this regard. Our international partners seem to have observed this attentively, together with what is going on in the BRICS.”
Klimov noted that Russian delegations are asked about developments on these issues at forums throughout the world, “from Caracas to Colombo,” and also among Western leaders, “especially its business class,” adding that “the political class is also interested but tries to hide it.”
Need for and Movement Toward a Multipolar World Order
US often just avoids those platforms where they do not have a dominant position..
Klimov noted that Russia “today and in the foreseeable future, will support a multipolar world, toward which we are presently working with all our efforts…including through inter-parliamentary dialogues with our colleagues.” Klimov added that Russia rejects the ideas of national exceptionalism and of one power deciding for everyone.
The Senator said toward the conclusion of his meeting that currently “the US often just avoids those platforms where they do not have a dominant position…they have even left the platform organized by the countries of Latin America, which pushed them out, together with the Canadians. And if we are to speak about who is isolated, in inter-parliamentary terms, it’s the United States…Because if you observe the countries that do not have very close relations with them –even just the inter-parliamentary dialogue between the EU and the US, you will see a lot of interesting things in this regard.”
