Islamic terrorists sell Syrian artifacts to the West

The investigation shows that ISIL (organization banned in Russia) militants make civilians search for antiques which the terrorists illegally sell to the West, and then use the money to buy weapons and bribe authorities. Dr. Michael Dunty, Academic Director of Cultural Heritage Initiative under the American Schools of Oriental Research says, that it is a whole network of smugglers around the Middle East region, that is involved in this illegal sales business. As the result, such ancient cities as Dura-Europos were ravaged entirely. Dunty also mentioned, that a network of appraisers is also involved in the activity, as terrorists are interested in finding out the real price of antiquities so as to sell them with more profit. According to the investigation, Lebanon and Turkey maybe be used as middle countries for resale, where the corresponding trafficking channels may have been set up even before the war, as it requires careful preparation to organize the illegal trade of valuables on such a scale. The end-buyers are American and European clients, which means these ancient treasures go to be kept at private collections. Consequently, the Wall Street Journal considers the situation to be much more dangerous than just plain terrorism, because the world faces a crisis of cultural heritage, the likes of which hasn’t been seen since the World War II.

Second Cold War is more dangerous as it targets Russians, not a state

The show discussed examples of anti-Russian xenophobia in western media and western politicians’ statements. As Sergey Kurginyan explained, when someone says “our values are different” in a discussion around Russia or the West, this can be called “anti-Russian xenophobia” or “anti-Western xenophobia”; however, “when people are branded lice etc., that is dehumanization, and in this particular case it is applied to Russian people, not the state”. The political analyst reminded how this process began in the Baltic States, “After the collapse of the USSR, a de facto apartheid regime was established in the Baltic States, which was essentially ignored by the West. Leaving aside Russia, which might have been weak, reluctant or unaware of the conflict… But the point is that it was ignored by human rights organizations worldwide. Neither Amnesty International nor anyone else cared. I talked to them, and I told them, ‘This is apartheid, don’t you see? It discredits all democratic values, it discredits the UN, it discredits international law!’ They waived it off saying that ‘It would not be acceptable for Zimbabwe, but towards Russians it is fine!’ This [such policy ― Rossa Primavera News Agency] is called ‘the formation of Russian ghettos for the final solution of the Russian problem’.”

Kurginyan: Western "open society" needs a common enemy

Sergey Kurginyan revealed the rationale of the Western media’s approach. He said that “there is the West as an ideal of the ‘open society’; but the ideal, which, of course, has never been achieved anywhere … But there the ‘open society’ has been adopted as an ideology… Such a society lacks internal social ties. There are no friends… Everyone becomes atomized. The only way to keep this kind of society together is to find a common enemy. The open society needs an enemy. Well, ideological promoters of the ‘open society’ searched for some time, they looked around, they tormented themselves in deciding whether or not to make Islam the enemy. Then they finally decided that it will be Russia. Now, the whole issue is very simple. And this is not a joke. All that is more or less viable for Russia, will be considered hostile to the open society. Those ideological adepts peer into what is happening in Russia: Are there good films? – enemy! Is there something good for children? – enemy! Any success? – enemy! Everything becomes the enemy, because everything is war. Thus, only one goal is needed. The goal is to ‘finish off the vile serpent’”.

Experts: Russia needs a new Ombudsman, an authorized Commissioner for family affairs!

The chairperson of the All-Russian Parent’s Resistance organization fully supported her colleagues. She said that at some point, Russia enthusiastically started following the West’s lead with regards to the approach of foster family care. This approach considers children’s rights and children’s protection in isolation, without any family consultation. However, in the given circumstances, the country really needs a new omOmbudsmana public advocate, who would be able to protect and promote the rights of the family as whole.

ISIL unleashes an “asymmetrical war”

“Due to increased pressure on the main strongholds of ISIL (organization banned in Russia), it shows signs of reorientation to sabotage-terrorist methods of fighting on the territories of its main activity as well as in the countries taking active part in counterterrorism operations. Even if ISIL (organization banned in Russia) loses territories, which are now under its control and abandons the idea of promoting the creation of “the Caliphate”, terrorist threats will still exist. The ISIL’s ambition to attain leading positions in the global jihadi movement leads to the creation of new terrorist threats in different regions of the Earth, and to a desire to unleash an “asymmetrical war” directly in countries combating terrorism”, says Novikov.

Novikov believes that the problem was revealed by the anti-terrorist operation in Syria. This strategy of ISIL can lead to the deterioration of the operational situation in some Central Asian countries. In this case, to counter terrorist attacks in due order, we shall “discuss…CIS joint military and police operations.”
