Yes, breaking the contact with insane people and orgs is a very good strategy if you do not fight them kinetically, like killing and obliterating them. So...
President Vladimir Putin asked the Russian lawmakers on Tuesday to adopt a law that would formally end the country’s participation in 21 treaties and charters related to the Council of Europe. Moscow withdrew from the human rights body last March, saying it was captured by the US and its allies in service of Western political objectives. Putin has formally submitted the bill on terminating the treaties to State Duma chair Vyacheslav Volodin, following the provisions of a 1995 federal law. Among the 21 treaties that will cease to apply to Russia is the charter of the Council of Europe (CoE), the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, the European Convention for the Suppression of Terrorism, the European Charter of Local Self-Government, and the European Social Charter. The CoE will also lose the immunities and privileges granted by the charter. The CoE was established in 1949 by several Western European countries, with a mission to promote “democracy, human rights and the rule of law.” Russia joined the organization in 1996 and in 1998 ratified the human rights convention.
Truth is, there are only three superpowers in the world--US, Russia and China. India is still sorting herself out and has a lot of work to do to get there, while militarily China is still lagging behind US and Russia. So, Russia, naturally, discounts EU as a force to be reckoned with, and it is only natural. I am on record (yes, I know, I wrote about this whole global thing for many years, so, don't take away from me my small habit to use this phrase--can a man have a moment of gratification?) that the break up with Europe must be profound and it is happening precisely because Europe lost all her heritage which made her great, once, long time ago. I am on record (I know, I know)--the European civilization is in Russia and it survives there, modern Europe is not European civilization. European universities and media prepared the whole generation of cucks and let Europe face the music.
Per the US, as I "am on record", the Bill of Rights for all corruption and degeneracy of Washington is still in THE Constitution. American freedoms are beyond the reach of Europeans and, and I repeat constantly--there is nothing to talk about with Europeans. With the US Russia has to talk, because it is a Noblesse Oblige of big guys. Once neocon criminals are (and if) removed from power, the new venue for dialogue could be opened. Europe is inconsequential. Simple as that. Sorry guys, but that is how geopolitics works.
