“The humanitarian rhetoric has led to polarization in the NPT review process.

200 years ago to this day, the Russian flag was hoisted over the island of Kauai. And the river Don appeared on its map. Hawaii could have become a part of the Russian Empire.

“During the last 17 years, it was confirmed that any state that wants to play at the top table of world politics must have sustainable and complex power base. Without it, there is no chance to lastingly join the leading powers of the world. During the same period the moral superiority of one system versus others has weakened. The moral superiority of the West has been undermined due to 17 years of interventions since 1999.
