According to the author, Russia’s involvement is critical to resolving many tense situations around the world, like, for example, the current crisis of relations between Iran and the Saudi Arabia – a crisis that Washington is in fact attempting to exacerbate.
While many news outlets now discuss the recent attacks against women in Germany perpetrated by migrants, few are willing to point out the reason behind the recent influx of refugees in Europe, Roth remarks. Meanwhile, Russia holds the key to resolving this issue as it is the only country that is serious about defeating the ‘source of evil’ that caused the problem in the first place, he adds.
It is quite possible that following the example of Syria, Iraq, Libya and Mali, other nations and cities may also turn to Russia for help after becoming dissatisfied with the current world order, he writes. As famous Serbian film director Emir Kusturica recently said, if President Putin was leading Russia when the breakup of Yugoslavia began he might’ve actually saved the Balkan nation.
Russia is actively involved in determining the fates of many countries, a fact that other superpowers should keep in mind when they boast about isolating Moscow, the author concludes.
