Berlusconi is now arguing for Russia, which is a pretty big development. His reasoning is economic. Which is a pretty good line of reasoning.

The fact is that big business is having a very hard time supporting the ideological crusade against Russia the EU and the US are engaged in.

Of course, the banks are in on the war on Putin, so there is little that business interests are capable of doing.


Silvio Berlusconi’s party, Forza Italia, will urge the government to lift anti-Russian sanctions, which are crippling bilateral ties and harming Italy’s national interests, the former Prime Minister said after his meeting with President Vladimir Putin.

Tomorrow we will present a motion calling on [the] government not to continue the sanctions against Russia, sanctions which harm our interests, causing significant financial losses,” Silvio Berlusconi said after his meeting with Putin at Fiumicino airport in Rome.

Berlusconi also said his Forza Italia party was planning to urge the Italian government to “commit itself” in convincing other European countries to follow its lead in lifting sanctions and “convince our American friends that the return to the atmosphere of the Cold War is inadmissible.”

The issue of Western sanctions and bilateral trade ties took center stage of Putin’s short visit to Italy.

While meeting with the current Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi in Milan, Putin was quick to point out that Italian companies had lost more than $1 billion due to the restrictive measures, while the trading volume shrank by one quarter in the first three months of 2015. The Russian president said that the sanctions also affected Russian-Italian military cooperation.

In Rome, meeting with Italian President Sergio Mattarella, the leaders discussed the necessity of maintaining strategic bilateral relations in “all spheres” and not allowing them to “become hostage” of current difficulties, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said. He added both Mattarella and Putin agreed “all countries in Europe are paying too high a price for the ongoing internal Ukrainian conflict.

Mattarella’s stance seems to echo statements by the Italian Foreign Minister Paolo Gentiloni who recently said that “Italy can’t afford to close the doors to Russia” and “can’t cut ties” with Moscow.

Berlusconi stressed the need to normalize relations between the West and Russia, insisting that is vital for cooperation on a global scale.

The 78 year-old said he is happy that Putin found time to visit Italy and even meet him personally, announcing that he will soon return the favor and come to Moscow. Berlusconi and Putin share a long personal connection over the years, and according to the Russian President, the bond of friendship they share doesn’t depend on political necessities.

You see, Southern Europe is getting screwed by the Merkelpean Union just as badly as Russia while the only beneficiaries who remain are Eastern European nations and Africa.

The whole thing may well collapse in the not-too-distant future. Top Italian politicians supporting Russia is a very good sign, as Greece continues to edge closer to the Bear.

Whatever you think of Russia, a break-up of the EU is a very good thing. Italy and Greece, upon exiting the Union, would immediately begin deportations of the undesirables and could well become decent countries to live in once more.

I will be buying a house on the island of Ios as soon as Greece’s exit is finalized.
