Does Brzezinski believe that the world is becoming “multi-polar”, with Russia and China playing major roles? This is what Russia’s pre-eminent geo-strategist, former Prime Minister Yevgeny Primakov has envisioned since 1990s, and what the US managed to successfully defy under Clinton and Bush.
Recognition of the Russian “sphere of interests” through a NATO-CSTO pact may bode ill to US allies in Central and Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. It would negate the very notions of sovereignty and of nation-states rights to choose and pursue politico-military alliances. (photo: www.kremlin.ru)
