Ukraine Russian War trending on Twitter
CARACAS, June 20 – 22, (IPS) – In order to emphasise their independence and create the conditions for a new de facto non-alignment with respect to the major global power axis, many countries in the developing South are distancing themselves from the parties to the Ukraine crisis.
The meetings and votes on the conflict at the United Nations and in other fora, the search for support or neutrality, and negotiations to lessen the effects of the economic crisis made worse by the war are the spaces where the process of new alignment is taking place, according to analysts consulted by IPS.
The US “initiated and cemented the transatlantic alliance” with Europe to combat Moscow on February 24, when Russian military began to invade Ukraine, and has been attempting to recruit partners throughout Asia, but things are more tricky there,” said Argentine geopolitical and negotiating specialist Andrés Serbin while speaking from Buenos Aires.
Asian nations and Ukraine Russian War
Many Asian nations do not want any alignment that would jeopardise their relationship with China, that continent’s economic and political hegemon, according to Serbin, author of books like “Eurasia and Latin America in a Multipolar World” and chair of the academic Regional Economic and Social Research Coordinator.The so-called Global South has distanced itself from the Ukraine war, which is a priority for the whole West, as a result of the competition between the United States and China, a growing trading partner and investor in many developing countries.
According to Doris Ramirez Ukraine Russian War
According to Doris Ramirez, an international relations professor at Colombia’s Javeriana University, “countries are better prepared now to adopt a stance and vote in international fora according to their interests and not according to ideological alignments.Emblematic examples include India, which has maintained strong ties with Russia, its longtime arms supplier, or Saudi Arabia, which, as the United States pulls out of the Middle East, is now more interested in its relations with China, Ramirez noted from Bogota.
Non Aligned Movement in Ukraine Russian war
The Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), which aimed to maintain an equal distance from the dominant blocs while promoting decolonization and the end of colonialism, was founded in 1961 as a result of the conflict between countries that were ideologically aligned with the United States or the then Soviet Union economic interest of south.Jawaharlal Nehru of India, Sukarno of Indonesia, Gamal Abdel Nasser of Egypt, Josip Broz “Tito” of Yugoslavia, and Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana were among its famous proponents from what was then referred to as the Third World.
The Non-Aligned Movement reached 120 members over the years, many of whom were blatantly aligned with one of the blocs. Although it is still formally in existence, the Non-Aligned Movement’s presence and relevance decreased along with the disappearance of its leaders and the socialist bloc’s loss of identity following the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 and the dissolution of the Soviet Union.
