In May 2006 I blogged about former Soviet dissident Vladimir Bukovsky’s claims that the EU had been taken over by pro-Soviet elements.
This plan did not die with the fall of the Berlin Wall. As Russia works to rebuild the old Soviet Union, starting with crypto-communist Belarus, pressure is being exerted on the EU to look East.
Russia’s natural gas reserves are being used to threaten Europe, but this is only the beginning.
Russia’s aim is a socialist Europe, united with the Russian empire and China against the USA.
In his books New Lies for Old (1984) and The Perestroika Deception (1995, 1998) former KGB Major Anatoliy Golitsyn exposes the Soviet strategists’ designs for global domination, in which the old Soviet Union, its Eastern European satellites, China, and Western Europe would be restructured (perestroika) to form a world communist federation.
In a 2006 interview with The Brussels Journal Soviet dissident and self-declared 2008Russian presidential candidate Vladimir Bukovsky revealed Moscow’s hand in the formation of the European Union as a stepping stone to this dream:
“In 1992 I had unprecedented access to Politburo and Central Committee secret documents which have been classified, and still are even now, for 30 years. These documents show very clearly that the whole idea of turning the European common market into a federal state was agreed between the left-wing parties of Europe and Moscow as a joint project which Gorbachev in 1988-89 called our ‘common European home.‘”
Today Pavel Borodin, State Secretary of the Union State of Russia and Belarus, boasted that between 2012 and 2014 the European Union will join the Union State, and not vice versa. The Kremlin’s bargaining chip, of course, is its vast natural resources. In short, Moscow is inviting Europe to enter the “Bear’s lair.”
EU to Strive for Union State Membership in 7 Years, Borodin Said
“We are striving for [joining] the European Union, but I tell you, the EU will be striving for joining the Union State of Russia and Belarus in five to seven years,” Pavel Borodin, the state secretary of the Union State, told reporters Wednesday.
“What do they have apart from beer and sausages?” the state secretary posed a rhetorical question. “Nothing. But we have everything: vast territory, national projects, working places and the demand.”
Russia and Belarus united far back in 1997, Borodin said, specifying that the process doesn’t run smoothly…
According to Borodin, the swindlers, and there are big numbers of them both in Russia and Belarus, won’t be able to do anything once the countries have single customs, common economy and currency.
In addition to making odious statements, Borodin gave details of forthcoming visit of Russia’s President Vladimir Putin to Belarus slated for December 13 to 14. Putin and Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko will mull over elaboration of Constitutional Act for Russia-Belarus Union State, the state secretary specified.
