The Director of the Institute for Strategic Studies and Predictions, political scientist Dmitry Egorchenkov considers that the former globalised world starts to disintegrate into regional centers.
In a conversation on radio Sputnik he explained that the world is on the verge of a transition to a new technological stage.
“The one who will make a technological breakthrough will win. The US actively seeks to overtake its competitors in the technological domain. The main and most important objective now is to not allow the main competitors to grow so that they don’t create at least some threat to the United States in the future in a military or economic sense,” said Egorchenkov.
He noted that all means are being used for this purpose – both military and economic, and geopolitical. To achieve this, points of tension are being created in the world — in Germany with migrants from the Middle East and Africa, in Myanmar they try to inflame religious conflicts, and so on. To have an effect on China they “warm up” problems from time to time, which are present on the Korean peninsula.
