EUA intensifica preparação nuclear para guerra à Rússia.
The NATO military alliance is preparing to implement a more aggressive nuclear weapons strategy in response to alleged “Russian aggression,” according to NATO sources cited by the Guardian Wednesday evening. Proposed changes include provisions for greater involvement of nuclear forces in ongoing NATO military exercises along Russia’s borders and new guidelines for nuclear escalation against Russia, according to the NATO officials. The alliance’s nuclear doctrine has been the subject of quiet, informal discussions “on the sidelines” of the ongoing NATO summit. The new policies will be formally articulated and confirmed at an upcoming conference of the alliance’s Nuclear Planning Group, which was rescheduled for an earlier date this week as word got around about the secretive planning. “There is very real concern about the way in which Russia publicly bandies around nuclear stuff. 
So there are quite a lot of deliberations in the alliance about nuclear weapons,” an unnamed NATO diplomat told the Guardian. The claim that discussion about a revision of nuclear weapons policy is in response to Russian aggression turns reality on its head. In the aftermath of the US and NATO-backed coup in Ukraine last year, the major imperialist powers have engaged in a relentless militarization of Eastern Europe, including the establishment of a rapid reaction force of 40,000 troops. This week, US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter announced that the US would permanently deploy tanks, military vehicles and other equipment to countries bordering Russia. There are also ongoing discussions about directly arming Ukraine, beyond the extensive assistance the right-wing government already receives. NATO is now planning to respond to any attempt by Russia to maintain or counter US imperialism’s aggressive moves in Eastern Europe with even more massive military response, including nuclear weapons. An indication of the thinking of NATO strategists was provided by a report in theFinancial Times. In the event of a conflict involving one of the Baltic countries, “Russia might…accuse the alliance of escalating the conflict and threaten to use intermediate range nuclear weapons.” The Times quotes Elbridge Colby, of the Center for a New American Security (CNAS): “NATO does not need a total nuclear rethink. But it needs to be realistic about how it would respond and willing to show Putin that he would not get away with it.”

"EUA quer guerra com China e Rússia: deter criação de ordem política e econômica alternativa".
The United States and its allies are making unprecedented efforts to wage war against Russia and China in order to prevent them from creating a new political and economic order in the world, an activist and journalist in Washington says. “The United States under [President Barack] Obama, being run by their controllers in Wall Street and the City of London, are driving a war confrontation policy towards both Russia and China, which is unprecedented in history,” said Mike Billington, the Asia editor for the Executive Intelligence Review. “They are willing to go to war to stop the development of the BRICS, to prevent their power over the world as a whole,” Billington told Press TV on Saturday. BRICS is the acronym for an association of five major emerging economies of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. They are distinguished by their large, fast-growing economies and significant influence on regional and global affair.

Depressão global, cai a demanda: frete marítimo Ásia-Europa vai abaixo do custo do combustível.
This is what two unnamed container shipping executives, one from an Asian carrier, the other from a European carrier, told the Wall Street Journal about the containerized-freight fiasco on the China-Europe route: “We are now shipping at an absolute loss. With the bunker-adjustment-factor surcharge at $300 for Asia-Europe, we are losing more than $50 per box.” “Unless by a miracle demand grows, we are up for heavy losses in the next quarter and maybe the rest of 2015.” 
The rate for shipping a container on that route, after plunging for months, is now below even the cost of fuel. The China Containerized Freight Index (CCFI), which covers spot market rates and contractual rates from Chinese ports to major destinations around the world, dropped another 1.2% last week, to a multi-year low of 851.4. The China-Europe component dropped 2.5%. The CCFI is now 21% below where it was in February, and 15% below where it was in 1998, when it was set at 1,000! The Shanghai Containerized Freight Index (SCFI) paints an even drearier scenario. Unlike the CCFI, it is composed only of spot rates, not contractual rates, from Shanghai to the rest of the world. And this babe plunged 6.8% last week to 581.25, an all-time low, 42% below where it was during the Financial Crisis, on October 16, 2009, when it was set at 1,000, and down 47% from February.

DOCUMENTÁRIO: Imenso esfôrço industrial renova defesas russas.
Russian President Vladimir Putin stated that Russian Armed Forces would receive more than 40 intercontinental ballistic missiles in 2015, Interfax reports. Putin said at the opening of the international military-technical forum "Army 2015" that the new missiles would be capable of overcoming any, even most technically advanced missile defense systems. According to the Russian President, Russia "was paying and will be paying special attention to the implementation of a large-scale state program of armaments and modernization of the defense complex." President Putin also said that Russia would build two new radar hubs. In April, the works on the project were launched in the town of Armavir. The tests of the new radar hub to detect beyond-the-horizon air targets will be conducted in the next coming months. The hubs will be built both for western and eastern strategic direction.

Meanwhile, the Russian army started receiving first units of armored vehicles on standardized platforms, the combat capabilities of which have no analogues in the world. It goes about such military vehicles as Armata, Kurganets, Boomerang, as well as self-propelled Coalition SV vehicles. As part of the "Army 2015" military forum, participants discussed prospects of the Russian defense industry, production of new weapons and modernization of the Russian Armed Forces. The Russian president stressed out that by 2020, Russia's military arsenal would be replenished with state-of-the-art models of military hardware.

"EUA destrói Europa, arrasta-a a uma cruzada contra a Rússia".
Interviewed on June 6th by German Economic News, the chief economist at Bremer Landesbank, Folker Hellmeyer, says that because of Obama’s sanctions against Russia, German exports declined year-over-year by 18% in 2014, and by 34% in the first two months of 2015 (no later figures), but he asserts that “The damage is much more comprehensive than these statistics show,” because those are only the “primary losses,” and there are in addition “secondary effects,” which get even worse over time. For example: “European countries with strong business in Russia, including Finland and Austria, are economically hit very hard. These countries consequently place fewer orders from Germany. 
Moreover, considering that European corporations will circumvent the sanctions, to create production facilities at the highest efficiency level in Russia, we lose this potential capital stock, which is the basis of our prosperity. Russia wins the capital stock,” at the EU’s expense, even though the sanctions are targeted against Russia. But the nub is this: " For the future, Germany and the EU place their economic reliability into question with Russia. The relationship of trust is broken by Germany and the EU. In order to build such confidence, it takes several years. Between signature and delivery are up to five years. … Siemens is now thrown out from a major project for this reason [i.e., because the requisite predictability has been lost]. Alstom has likewise lost the contract for the railway line from Moscow to Beijing. Consequently, the potential for damage is much more massive than the current figures show, not only for Germany, but for the entire EU " . 
China e Rússia derrubarão a hegemonia dos EUA.
Folker Hellmeyer, chief economist at Bremer Landesbank, has no doubts about the future of the global economic system: The axis Moscow-Beijing-BRICS will prevail against the old hegemon USA. These countries have had enough of the West, because they want to pursue a long-term strategy and not opportunism. The EU is likely to be among the losers, due to its blind sanctions-obedience. A prominent figure in recent German politics, not in office anymore, said in bilateral talks that US-geopolitics is best described as a game of chess on the chessboard of Ukraine with the blood of Ukrainian pawns over the boards of Moscow against the power center Beijing. I share this view. Fact is that the emerging countries are emancipating themselves from US hegemony. This becomes evident with the creation of institutions competing with the World Bank (AIIB) and the IMF (New Development Bank). This displeases the still prevailing hegemon. The current international hot spots from Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Lybia, Egypt to the Ukraine are expressions of this clearly recognizable struggle for power. Didn’t we want to establish democracy and freedom in all those countries? Let’s have a look at the success….

EUA obriga FMI a violar estatuto, financiando uma guerra civil.
The IMF has now made it official: it will go on lending to Ukraine regardless of whether or not it defaults on its private Western debt. The IMF’s statement, made in the form of an open letter published on its website (full text below) makes the fact clear. The key words in the letter are: “The IMF, in general, encourages voluntary pre-emptive agreements in debt restructurings, but in the event that a negotiated settlement with private creditors is not reached and the country determines that it cannot service its debt, the Fund can lend to Ukraine consistent with its Lending-into-Arrears Policy.” The idea seems to be that, as Ukraine is due to pay £23 billion to its Western creditors over the next four years, defaulting on this debt will plug the $15 billion hole in the funding the IMF is providing Ukraine, which it has identified. 
That this is a blatantly political decision showing a willingness to lend to a country that is bankrupt, hardly needs saying. What the IMF is in effect doing, since it is not willing to increase the amount it is lending, is fund Ukraine at the expense of its creditors. It is a significant — and dubious — departure from IMF practice. However the political pressure from the Western powers that control the IMF for it to continue its support for Ukraine has overridden all other considerations. For the IMF this is a high-stakes gamble. It is known that back in 2010 all the non-Western representatives on the IMF’s board, as well as the Swiss representative, vigorously opposed the planned bailout of Greece, seeing it as a blatantly political attempt to rescue the euro by piling debt on Greece which it could never repay. On that occasion the decision was rammed through by the Western majority, only for the criticism of the non-Western representatives to be proved true later.
