The Strategic Shift Inherent in Putin’s ’Sputnik Shock’

9 March 2018

SI—In a statement issued at the end of last week, Helga Zepp LaRouche addressed what she called a "new Sputnik shock," delivered by Russia’s President Putin. Zepp LaRouche wrote, "In a trans-Atlantic atmosphere of hysteria against Russia and China that can only be understood as pre-war propaganda, President Putin dropped a bombshell in his annual State of the Union address which has redefined the strategic balance."

As Mrs. LaRouche indicates, the strategic situation is moving very rapidly, with real prospects for mutually beneficial relations, if the efforts to define relations in terms of British geopolitical dogma can be cast aside, and replaced by the "win-win" approach of China’s President Xi. Join Mrs. LaRouche this Friday for the full implications of the changing global strategic geometry.
