Opinion (Igor S. Ivanov, Russian politician, former Russian Foreign Minister): “In connection with the Ukrainian crisis, the world started talking about a return to the times of the Cold War. But the return to the Cold War of the 20th century is impossible. The world has changed dramatically.
“In those years, international relations were developing within the world order, established as a result of WWII. We lived in fear of a worldwide nuclear catastrophe, and this fear forced the Soviet Union and the United States to negotiate the reduction of nuclear capabilities and control over them.
“Today, the old world order has ceased to exist, but the new one has not yet been established. International institutions, led by the UN, are becoming less effective, and the norms of international law are violated for the sake of political interests.
“On the eve of the new year of 2015, many began again to wish each other ‘may there be no war.’ This premonition of war should prompt politicians to put aside their ambitions and resentments and start a serious dialogue about the new world order. Otherwise, instead of the Cold War, we will get a real, big war.”
My Comment: The problem is not in starting a dialogue, but in the fact that no one has a solution, an idea. A Kabbalistic solution to lead the world to unity without borders is not attractive to politicians. After all, for this it is necessary to correct human nature. Kabbalah promises to do this, but people have no desire as yet. Do we really need great threats?
