Greek government passed an unpopular austerity programme on Wednesday provoking the strong reaction of public opinion. Syntagma Square, the headquarter of greek protesters - have camped out at square for weeks – became the center of bloody clashes between police and fringe masked anarchists. The majority of greek leading newspapers spoke for “an orgy of state terror” in order to disrupt the massive reaction of Athenian protesters who opposite to austerity programme.

On June 24, at a meeting in Brussels the European Council decided for further enlargement of the European Union – on July 1, 2013 Croatia should become the 28th members of the EU.  In December the final document on the admission of Croatia to the EU is expected to be signed but before this the decision of the European Council should be approved by the parliament of each of the member states.

In mid June Alan Greenspan, former Federal Reserve chairman, said a default by Greece is “almost certain” and could help drive the US economy into recession. 

Greenspan’s loud statement on Greece may be a “sound curtain” to prepare the global community to a default by the US.

An expected outgrowth of the world's steady descent into total and extreme capitalist control is the increasing tendency by some historians and their accomplices in the media to re-invent certain aspects of history.

PRESIDENT OF RUSSIA DMITRY MEDVEDEV: Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen,

I want to welcome you all to the St Petersburg Economic Forum. In particular, I want to thank my colleagues, the leaders of other countries, who have come to our beautiful city. 

In mid May the president of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan A.A. Zardari visited Russia. Probably this visit will define the development of the Russian-Pakistani future in the near future and the development of political processes in South Asia and the nearby territories.

Chancellor Angela Merkel`s cabinet has addressed Germany`s car makers to increase production 400 times by the year 2021.

As of the 1st of January, 2011, Germany car makers had produced 42.4 million cars, 30.5 million of which had internal combustion engines, 11.3 milion units were diesel-powered cars, 400,000 were LNG vehicles, 71,500 cars were powered by natural gas, 37,000 were hybrid cars, while only 2,300 were electric cars, or so-called 'electromobiles'.

The arrest in Serbia of former Bosnian Serb army commander, legendary Gen. R. Mladic and the statement on the illegitimacy of Gadhafi’s rule in Libya issued collectively at the G8 summit in Deauville combine neatly within the same paradigm: in a unipolar world, as long as it continues to exist, leaders of the countries outside of the top league are not entitled to independent policies.

The May 26 arrest of former Serbian military leader Gen. R. Mladic evokes serious questions of both moral and legal character. Clearly aware of the shakiness of the indictment Mladic is about to face, the global media tend to avoid touching upon the legal aspect of the Mladic case.

The recent arrest of the Chief of the General Staff of the Republika Srpska Army, General Ratko Mladic, as well as preparations for his extradition to The Hague is another in the chain of events that are part of the on-going “mopping-up of History”… Ratko Mladic was the central figure in the Bosnian War.
