 The most dangerous parts of the conflict between Russia and the West are all parsed.


Wen / Chen Yu (Institute of modern Russian Studies, Russian Institute of modern international relations) This article was originally published in the sixteenth phase of lookout in 2018 The current contradiction between Russia and the West has entered the most acute moment since the 80s of last century. First, the spy gate triggered the expulsion of diplomats in Britain and Russia. The United Kingdom has expelled more than 150 Russian diplomats from more than 20 western countries and organizations such as the United States, NATO and other western countries and organizations. Based on the principle of reciprocity, Russia has also expelled the same number of Western diplomats. The scale of the diplomatic war has not been seen in the cold war. Then came the chemical weapons suspicion that just triggered the US military strike against Syria. The United States believed that the Syria opposition armed forces suffered a chemical attack from the Syria government army. To this end, the United States and Russia fought fiercely in the United Nations. The United States Truman aircraft carrier battle group went to the Mediterranean. Trump cancelled the visit to Latin America, and on 13 day, the United Kingdom and France joined the military facilities in Syria. Hit. According to the analysis, the current contradiction between Russia and the West has entered the most acute time since the 80s of last century, which is more serious than the Ukraine crisis. In the west, Russia has lost the cold war, and the defeated must obey the winner arrangement, namely, being deprived of the sphere of influence and the status of great powers. The goal of the west is to make Russia a Middle European country. Even if we can not integrate into the western world, we must completely cut off our troubles. Russia has a dream of rejuvenation of great powers, and wants to reunite the former Soviet Union countries to become an independent pole in the multipolar world. The objectives of the two sides collided against each other, so the conflict between Russia and Ukraine broke out on the geo fault line, and the fundamental contradiction in the strategy decided that the relationship between Russia and the West could not be truly improved in the future. Although the two presidents of Putin and Trump used to cherish each other, they were all traditional geopolitics players, and the rise of contradictions was inevitable. The most dangerous part of the conflict between Russia and the West lies in the fact that it may push the world powers to live in peace from all directions to a certain extent. First of all, after the international financial crisis, the western development model encountered a lot of problems. The political and social chaos in the United States and Europe occurred repeatedly, and the events of black swan and grey rhinoceros were frequent. The emerging countries are developing well and their strength is rising. The international order is in a period of profound transition to multipolarity. In this case, the great powers are striving to maintain their position in political, economic and even military means. Russia has seen the opportunity to challenge the so-called liberal international order in the west, and is more active in strategy, and the contradictions between the two sides are aggravated. The West believes that Russia has changed the existing border by force, and its hostility towards Russia has risen sharply. The Russo Mun incident has also led to a surge of anti Russian sentiment in the United States accustomed to interfering in the internal affairs of other countries. Some experts say that the current US political elite of the new generation is even more vengeance than the cold war generation. The intricate situation in the transition period of the international pattern coincide with the struggle between Russia and the United States, which has brought unprecedented challenges to world peace and development. Secondly, ten years after the international financial crisis, the economic situation of the major countries in the world has not yet reached the trough, but is facing a new round of crisis. The impulse to transfer domestic pressure from a number of countries has risen, the United States is coming to the mid-term election, the Trump administration waving trade sanctions, and the strong attitude of the Syria issue, with strong internal consideration behind it. The high support rate of Putin in these years and the success in the general election, to a certain extent, is partly related to the patriotism that led Russia to the road to the rejuvenation of the great powers. Third, in the past, the major reason for the restraint between the big powers was the fear of the others nuclear capability. Today, conventional weapons are developing rapidly, and big powers are likely to yield another big power without using nuclear weapons. Whats more, hypersonic weapons, Russias first developed nuclear cruise missiles, have traveled on the edge of nuclear and conventional weapons, and are ready to appear at any time. Even in the field of nuclear weapons, the third phase of the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty between Russia and the United States is about to expire, and both sides are updating their nuclear arsenals, and the future competition will be increasingly fierce. All this has lifted the risk of direct military confrontation between major powers. Finally, the development of science and technology and military theory and the deepening of globalization can make the big powers compete fully by means of various forms of agent war, mixed war, network warfare, information warfare, public opinion war, trade war, and sanctions war. On the one hand, these measures have been able to achieve the effect of the past war and greatly reduce the threshold for confrontation between big powers. In fact, over the past few years, the two sides have been using these means frequently and alternately in the struggle between Russia and the United States. Some experts even think that the definition of traditional war should be revised to adapt to the new situation. On the other hand, the new means of contention have traveled more and more at the edge of the war. The war between Russia and the West in Syria and Ukraine, and the network war between the two sides are likely to be fired at any time, causing an unexpected military conflict between the big powers.
