    Since the end of the Cold War, how has Russia positioned itself in the world? In a multipolar world where the American hyper power's best years seem to be past and where nationalist leaders are making their triumphant return, what are the strengths and weaknesses of Putin’s geopolitics?

    Vladimir Putin wants to believe that his country can become a great power again. To this end, he tries to make sure that NATO and the European Union gain as little ground as possible in the former USSR, strengthens his bonds with China and imposes Russia as a pivotal actor in the Middle East in the ashes of the Syrian conflict – while also playing the soft power and information warfare global games.

    CUBA: THE ORGANIC ISLAND'S SECRET - 13-06-2020

    The Cubans have fulfilled a lifelong dream of environmentalists around the world: they have converted their entire island to organic farming.

    Presently, more than 4,000 urban farms produce 1.5 million tons of vegetables without pesticides or chemical fertilizers.
    This small agricultural miracle is due to an accident of history: because of the Soviet Union’s collapse in the early 1990s, Cuba suddenly lost its main supplier of pesticides, fertilizers and herbicides. It could not turn to the Americans or any other Western country because of the embargo imposed by the United States since 1962. In order to avoid mass famine, Cuba then had no choice but to develop natural alternatives reducing the use of chemicals to almost zero.
    As a result, bees have never been healthier. The island's honey is guaranteed to be pesticide-free and has become a worldwide export. Despite its shortages, Cuba has become an agricultural case-study... Thirty years without pesticides vividly demonstrate that another approach is possible.

    CORONAVIRUS IN MEXICO, THE NARCOS’ SOCIAL FEVER - 13-06-2020

    In Mexico, the coronavirus crisis is weakening an already faltering state. This creates an opportunity for cartels to extend their power and influence by playing the Good Samaritan.

    In Mexico, the coronavirus crisis is weakening an already faltering state. This creates an opportunity for cartels to extend their power and influence by playing the Good Samaritan.

    More than half of those who were living hand to mouth in the underground economy now find themselves without a source of income. As the health and social emergency worsens, Mexican drug mafias are taking advantage of the situation by helping those the state cannot. The virus’ spread has severely disrupted drug trafficking. So while they are waiting for business to pick up again, the criminals are restoring their social image and ridiculing the authorities.
    Cartel “good deeds” videos are posted daily on social networks. They show hooded and heavily armed men distributing food in the most remote and deprived areas of the country. Anti-bacterial gel, bags of food and even cash; the contents of the parcels distributed, stamped with the donors’ logo, vary according to the criminal groups. But the objective remains the same: to attract the local population’s sympathy and support while demonstrating the Mexican government's inefficiency.

    Hong Kong recently received devastating news. On Thursday, May 28, 2020, to everyone's surprise, the Chinese parliament approved a new law aimed at bringing the former British colony under control. The island was supposed to be safe from Beijing's rule until 2047.

    President Xi wants to skip through all legal proceedings and criminalize “secession, sedition, subversion and terrorism”. The terms are vague enough to enable the mainland to crush the ongoing dispute and obliterate the concept of “one country, two systems”.
    This new law could be enacted in mid-July, a clear indicator that the “Dragon” intends to speed up its takeover. Especially since demonstrations are currently banned because of the health crisis. But Hongkongers wear their disobedience on their sleeve: they have already started to reoccupy the streets, just as they did a few months ago.
    At the time, they were already fighting over a law – that of extradition to mainland China. It had led to a year of protests and the worst democratic crisis in Hong Kong’s history. But today, Beijing's new approach is much more heavy-handed: how will the island react?

    CHINA: FORCED CONFESSIONS- 06-06-2020

    Since Xi Jinping's rise to power in 2013, dozens of Chinese lawyers, journalists and human rights activists have been paraded before television cameras to confess their crimes before they have even been tried.

    Since Xi Jinping's rise to power in 2013, dozens of Chinese lawyers, journalists and human rights activists have been paraded before television cameras to confess their crimes before they have even been tried.

    Over the past five years, CCTV, China's leading state-owned TV station, has broadcast around 100 forced confessions during prime time. This process has been formalized by the government, to attack anyone challenging its authority.
    In a prison cell or before a fake background, the accused tell of how they have wronged the communist regime or its leaders. All of them end up asking for forgiveness, and they are often given lengthy sentences.
    At the present time, testimonies from victims of this experience are extremely rare. But among those who dare to speak out, all tell the same story. The Chinese Communist Party threatens and tortures them to force them to confess to crimes that they often did not commit.
    A former British journalist, who was forced to confess twice while working in China, has filed a lawsuit in London. The investigation is ongoing, but it has already proven to be a serious thorn in the Chinese Communist Party's side. Now, its international propaganda apparatus is no longer hiding its desire to establish “a new media world order”.

    Lesotho is a small kingdom in the mountains, landlocked in the heart of South Africa. It has been facing an unprecedented drought, which caused a serious food crisis.

    A quarter of the population is affected, and it is as disastrous physically as it is psychologically. Hunger is especially dramatic for the most vulnerable, such as children and people living with HIV. It can also lead to sexual exploitation. Yet hunger is not a fatality, as James Machobane has brilliantly proved. In the 1960s, this visionary had invented a farming method that was supposed to give everyone enough food to eat all year round. His plan was adapted to the difficult climatic conditions of his country. How much of it remains nowadays? Find out thanks to this conversation with people from Lesotho.

    BRAZIL: COVID, THE VIRUS OF CONTENTION - 30-05-2020

    While the pandemic keeps progressing at an alarming rate in Latin America, the death toll is now over 20,000 in Brazil.

    210 million people live in Brazil. The containment rate has been constantly decreasing for a month, new virus outbreaks happen regularly. Meanwhile, its far right “coronasceptic”president keeps questioning the restrictive measures taken by State Governors. The proportion of young adults dying from coronavirus is higher in Brazil than in most other countries, especially among the poorest, who find it harder to respect the rules of social distancing.
    Faced with the record rate of deaths – around 1,000 per day – and of infected people, Bolsonaro however keeps a casual attitude and recommends using chloroquine. While mass graves are being dug and the Brazilian health system is on the verge of collapse, the populist president, supported by a third of his electorate, is having fitness studios and beauty salons reopened. A political choice that has confused the entire country and is sowing even more discord among Brazilians.
