Description

What is the place of the “renitent” Hungary regarding the Europe-oriented alliances, such as the Intermarium and the V-4 countries? What is the place of Ukraine, regarding to these alliances? Which kind of perspectives can be maintained as reality? – The “Intermarium” alliance, that is, the wide cooperation of the countries from the Baltic Sea to the Black Sea, it is a good way, and the only possible way, to form a strong block against the Russian imperialism. A special attention is to be paid on the cooperation of the Vishegrad-4 countries: Poland, Slovakia, Czech and Hungary. The capital of great amount, recently concentrated in the hands of Ukrainian oligarchs, may be and must be invested in the European Union, too, mainly in the Vishegrad-4 countries. The great Poland, large Ukraine, and the small but active countries as Slovakia, then counting with Lithuania, too, as a possible ally for an East Block within the EU – they may form a strong and determined block. As for Poland, it is the only country can resist the Russian imperialism, with its measure and military forces; however, the Polish right-wing policy is a weakening factor. But we must distinguish between the Polish and Hungarian right-wings. While the Polish policy never will lead its country to the friendship of Russia, the Hungarian right-wing policy is a Russophile, Putin-friend diplomacy – thus the Hungarian right-wing is more dangerous than the Polish. — According to a Russian politologist, Orban has connections to the “Moscovian-clan” of the KGB; nevertheless, the illiberal Hungarian authoritarian regime serves as a useful card at the hands of Putin. Russia cannot exist without aggressive expansion. The Russian imperialism is the essential phenomenon of the Russian regime. How to make Russia stop? When Russia can see that there is the border, there is the "red line" it cannot step over. Russia must realize on a strict way, “this is the border and you, Russia, must not step over this line because it is the border of your power”.
