Alexander Dugin: The Belt and Road Initiative: A Eurasian Road
Russian strategist Alexander Dugin who is one of the experts, shaping Russian foreign policy, said that “Russia, Turkey, Iran, China and other countries including India, Pakistan and many other Arab countries, African countries, and Europe itself can secure real independence only by way of creating a kind of geopolitical Eurasian alliance”. He assessed the pains of the shif toward a new world order in the interview, published in BRIQ Autumn 2020 issue.
Russian strategist Alexander Dugin emphasized that the Belt and Road Initiative has become an important alternative and a Eurasian option to globalization. Dr. Dugin indicated in the interview with BRIQ:
“Little by little China came to the conclusion that Russia is to be included in the Belt & Road Initiative, making it a united Eurasianist initiative. So, the whole project started to become a ‘Eurasian road’.”
“First, China became so powerful, so independent, so sovereign that it began to represent a new challenge to the globalists themselves, to the West. China became the second pole. Observing China becoming more and more independent, a part of the globalist/western elite started to oppose China. We see this with Huawei, with Trump’s campaign to get all Chinese assets out of the US, with the mutual closure of consulates in USA and in China. We see economic war with China. These changes have reshaped the Belt & Road Initiative in a new geopolitical context.”
“…with the growth of China and Putin’s insistence on defending and strengthening Russian sovereignty, the Belt & Road Initiative was transformed into something new in the last two years. It now represents a strategy to secure Chinese and Russian independence, working together, in alliance… We can now speak about the Russian-Chinese alliance as a geopolitical alliance opposed to the Atlanticist world order, to its unipolarity.”
DECOLONIZATION HAS JUST STARTED
Dr. Dugin pointed by highlighting the necessity of the cooperation of countries, targetted by globalists:
“Nation-states cannot independently establish, secure and keep real sovereignty. We need to oppose this global pressure together…First, on the present stage, we need to establish a multipolar alliance between all the powers, all the states, all the countries and civilizations fighting for their independence…That is the logical continuation of decolonization. Decolonization is not finished; it has just started.”
“Russia, Turkey, Iran, China and other countries including India, Pakistan and many other Arab countries, African countries, and Europe itself can secure real independence only by way of creating a kind of geopolitical Eurasian alliance.
LIBERATE FROM LIBERAL SWAMP
“We need to liberate ourselves, all the peoples, Turkish people, Russian people, Chinese people, European people, American peoples, from this international liberal swamp. We need to liberate ourselves from the totalitarian discourse constructed on the 'self-evident' dogma that only liberalism can be accepted as a universal ideology, that only Western values should be assimilated as something universal” said Dugin and maintained:
“We should put an end to the expansion of Western liberal globalization and reduce the West to its due space. Afterwards we should begin the mission of Renaissance, reconstruction, and reformation of our destiny. And from that Renaissance we can deduce the necessary clash between reborn civilizations. They could prosper and develop based on dialogue, cooperation, and mutual recognition, without necessarily fostering conflict. There is only one real clash of civilizations that is inevitable: the clash of humanity and this aggressive, today liberal but always racist West.”
