In the new Cold War, Russia delivers weapons and nuclear technology to Myanmar, the EU, under the leadership of the German Presidency, softens the sanctions imposed on Uzbekistan
Whether, in view of the increasing conflicts between Russia and the USA and the EU, one can already speak of a new Cold War is a matter of opinion. But the intermittent tendency of political rapprochement has become fragile, at least since the war in Iraq. The Russian and U.S. governments are each pursuing aggressive policies to demonstrate what Russia is capable of thanks to higher oil and gas prices and the nationalization of energy companies. With the expansion of the EU and NATO, the West has moved closer to Russia, which is symbolized once again by the planned installation of the missile defense shield.
