Moscow is concerned by the decision taken by the EU to strengthen sanctions against certain countries without the respective UN Security Council resolutions.
"Russia is alarming trend of steady adoption of retaliatory measures in the one-sided diplomacy tools the EU Member States," — said Alexander Lukashevich, the official dealer of the Russian Foreign Ministry.
Public turmoil that engulfed North Africa and the Middle East, have become a prerequisite for regime change in Egypt and Tunisia, thoroughly destabilized the internal atmosphere in Syria, Bahrain, Yemen and other countries in the region. Against the backdrop of the bloody events in Libya, analysts and ask themselves, what's next, what other countries have the chance to be involved in the military-political conflicts in the broader Islamic space?
This for us version of events could not but attract attention to themselves meaningful statement made not so long ago, attorney Russian Federation to NATO, Dmitry Rogozin, according to which military Union plans to campaign in Syria to overthrow the regime of current president Bashar al-Assad. This is no way to release the distressed Syrian people, and for the most part as the training base for the next attack on Iran.
But not only in Brussels are planning to attack the Islamic Republic.
In May of this year, quite notable judgments from the mouth of the former head of Mossad, Meir Dagan. From his point of view, if in order to prevent the Iranian nuclear threat to Israel will resort to military action, but directly — to bomb Iran's nuclear facilities, it would be "silly thing".
Of course, that expressing disapproval of similar plans, the former head of Israeli intelligence, it is recognized that they are. Possessed by the nature of the multilateral information Dagan convinced Iran has a hidden nuclear infrastructure, working together with the equally legitimate civil. At the same time, the former head of Mossad, stressed that, according to international law, any impact on this infrastructure for us to be illegal, so as legitimate infrastructure is placed under the control of the international agency's Nuclear Energy Agency (IAEA). Speaking about the potential difficulties of a military strike, Dagan talked to him: a good solution similar puzzles will be very difficult. Certainly in comparison with Iraq, where a similar action, Israeli Air Force carried out exactly 30 years to reverse, nuclear facilities Iran located in the provincial hinterland.
The Islamic Republic of Iran — One of the most massive in the political, economic and military terms of the Near and Middle East. In Russia, at the level of mass consciousness of the country is perceived as a sworn enemy of the Western democracies, because it rules in the Muslim clergy, and it is keen nuclear ambitions. So with Iran should keep an eye on …
Our homeland is not trying to treat Iran as an enemy, on the contrary, Moscow and Tehran continue to strengthen existing ties. Over the past 20 years, the two countries have proved that they can lead a normal and constructive dialogue. Naturally, this can not but worry the United States, who seek to impose their own rules of the game in the region, as evidenced by the overthrow of the regime of Saddam Hussein in Iraq and the Taliban in Afghanistan. Control over the territory of Iran will allow the Yankees to put pressure on Russia from the Caucasus region and open up additional ways to help the obscurantist on the terrain of the North Caucasus and strengthen the position of Georgia.
And another main point in this respect: Iran ranks 2nd in the world in reserves of gas. In general, because of the political events of Western companies have no chance to participate in the exploitation of Iranian deposits of "blue fuel" to invest in gas production branch of the Islamic Republic for the sake of Europe on a cheap supply of hydrocarbons. Iran, Syria and Iraq signed a memorandum of laying a gas pipeline from the South Pars field in the countryside Iran in Europe. The project, whose price is $ 10 billion, provides for gas transit to European countries, including Greece, the pipeline length of 5000 km, which will be built on the terrain of Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, and on the Mediterranean to Europe.
Yet, the role and place of Russia in the Iranian energy sector, to put it mildly, does not correspond to the potential of both parties. This for us in the field of mutual cooperation broad prospects.
On the participation of Russian engineers in the construction of a nuclear plant, "Bushehr" perfectly clear that, in general, and does not hide or Moscow or Tehran. This plan has brought the Russian Federation proceeds in the amount of more than $ 1 billion the first. A forthcoming operation of nuclear power plants also provide considerable benefits Moscow.
Well, in case you still Iran is attacked? According to the views mentioned above Meir Dagan, this is permissible only in the latter case. Therefore, as a blow to connect voedinyzhdy masses around the Islamic regime without causing damage to a nuclear weapons program there. Moreover, it would unleash a Tehran hands do not adhere to international agreements on the nuclear issue.
Iran is weakening significantly strengthen Turkey's position not only in the Middle East, and in the volatile Caucasus. Do not forget that just because of Tehran's help Armenia has not conceded under pressure from Baku and Ankara, remained profitable in its geopolitical orbit of the Russian Federation.
The Kremlin is well aware of what can result injection of tension around Iran and Syria friendly to him. Because if there is a change in Tehran by force present-day regime, that is, in the views of political scientists and analysts, will lead to the dictates of the West throughout the greater Middle East. Taking this into account, it becomes clear why our homeland and China vetoed a UN Security Council resolution on Syria, according to which the planned attacks on government forces and the overthrow of the Assad regime.
