Moscow Benefits Because Real Division in the World is Not Between Russia and the West but between Conservatives and Globalists in Both Places, Belov Says

            Staunton, May 14 – Many in the West and some in Russia present the current geopolitical struggle as being between Russia, on the one hand, and the West, on the other, Aleksey Belov says. But the real struggle is between conservatives who want to revive and develop national traditions and globalists who are set on destroying them.

            What has confused people, the analyst at Moscow’s Strategic Culture Foundation says, is that globalists in the West have sought to “strangle” traditionalists in their cradle that Russia is taking the lead in bringing to life (

            That is why Western governments and especially those of the US and the UK have focused on “defeating” Russia in Ukraine. They are clearly worried about the strength of traditionalism not only in Russia but in their own countries, and their hysterical opposition to it, Belov insists, only highlights the shift in opinion in favor of traditionalism and against globalism.

            If the current conflict is understood correctly as one between traditionalism and globalism, Belov continues, the relative strengths of Russia and the West can be seen more clearly, because Russia can rely not only on its own traditionalists but also on traditionalists in the West and is thus far stronger than many often take it to be.
