A robbery based on “rules”?

We have heard endlessly how Mr. Blinken, Secretary of State of the United States, talks to us about the “wonder” that is the global liberal order that according to him is based on “rules,” but that Russia and China want to destroy. For his part, from Europe, the Foreign Affairs Commissioner of the European Union, Mr. Borrell, has described the West as a “garden” surrounded by a jungle.

The detail is that it is not known what those “rules” are and where they are written. Humanity, as general international rules, only recognizes those that are based on international law, based on the Charter of the United Nations. But it turns out that the West, when it suits them, not only flagrantly violates international law, but also its “rules”-based order, reflecting a divorce between what they say and what they do.

The liberal world where they preach that sacrosanct respect for private property governs is preparing to appropriate Russian funds illegally frozen in Western banks and, in turn, give them to Ukraine, which is in the middle of a war against Russia. However, any action to seize Russian assets must be considered in light of international law as simple theft.

If the Western initiative is carried out, they will create a historical precedent: they will destroy one of the most ancient foundations of the existence of Western society: the principle of inviolability of private property. Additionally, in a May 7 statement, IMF First Deputy Managing Director Gita Gopinath said Western plans to use assets from the Russian Federation could undermine the global monetary and financial system.

During the current visit of the President of the Russian Federation, VV Putin, to the People's Republic of China, the parties strongly condemned in a joint statement the “initiatives to confiscate assets and property of foreign States” and highlighted “the right of such States to retaliate”, in accordance with “international legal norms”, and, consequently, Russia reserves that right. Russophobia is an implacable disease, it is based on hatred and does not allow reason, and the West is digging its own grave by trying to do the greatest damage to Russia.
