Threatening exercises have been carried out by US and NATO armed forces on the borders of Russia and China. In some settings, there is talk of a "return to the cold war." Others warn of possible oversights that could lead the world to an apocalypse. The alarming news is "raining down": The United States Army will build the most powerful laser weapon in the world. According to New Scientist magazine, it is a technology a million times more powerful than current systems. It works by firing a continuous beam until the target catches fire or melts.CNN reported that the US Armed Forces deployed a low-powered nuclear weapon, launched by submarines, considered by the Pentagon as essential to counter the threat from Russia's arsenal of tactical nuclear weapons.

A little over two months ago, Donald Trump left the White House who proposed to end multilateralism, broke pacts and programs much needed for peace and human coexistence. He made both Russia and China the targets of his most unfounded accusations, with an irrational sanctions policy that even denied any cooperation against COVID-19.

The new administration of Joe Biden, until now, has not changed the policy of his predecessor. He maintains the sanctions, and only a few tenuous steps mask his position, such as the recent high-level meeting with China, in Alaska, where they set out to "avoid conflicts and misunderstandings, and hoped to continue talking."

The Russian Foreign Ministry, through its spokesperson, Maria Zajárova, denied the Secretary-General of NATO, Jens Stoltenberg, who affirmed that "the alliance regrets that not a single meeting of the Russia-NATO Council has been held since the summer of 2019", because, according to him, the Russian side did not agree to the invitation. The spokeswoman said Moscow agreed to engage in a substantive conversation, "without getting into a history of politicized public relations, for which our Western partners are so famous." He assured that it was proposed to establish a dialogue between experts, with the participation of the military, and warned that this proposal "is on the table of Mr. Stoltenberg."

What has really happened is the preparation of large-scale threatening exercises of NATO forces in the seas near Russia, with 18 warships from that bloc, ten aircraft, and 2,400 soldiers, ready to begin these multinational practices, named Sea Shield-21, in the Black Sea. That is why it was not surprising that Russia put its Black Sea Fleet submarines on alert, nor that it had to expend resources and efforts to arm its defense.

Hence, in its defensive conception, since it has not threatened any national territory, neither in its continent nor in any other part of the Earth, it has been strengthened with powerful and modern weaponry in recent years. Bora-class hovercraft, with eight guided Mosquito missiles and 20 anti-aircraft, with a speed of 100 km / h; Pántsir-S1 system, with 12 surface-to-air missiles and two 30 mm caliber guns; submarine Novorossiysk, practically invisible; Mig-35 multipurpose fighter plane; BUK-2 missile system, designed to shoot down cruise missiles, smart bombs and other means; intercontinental ballistic missile system, rs-24 Yars, equipped with thermonuclear warheads, and self-guided with a range of 16,000 kilometers; the Túpolev TU-160 strategic bomber, the world's largest supersonic fighter plane, and the S-300 missile system, which can kill six targets at the same time, with 12 missiles for each, among other components of its framework defensive.

China has done the same. “As a result of the multi-dimensional technology acquisition strategy, the Chinese People's Liberation Army is about to deploy some of the most modern weapons systems in the world. In some cases it is already a leader, ”says a report from the US Defense Intelligence Agency itself. Its defense is an obligatory subject for that great country, so much so that President Biden himself, less than a week before the appointment in Alaska, proposed, in a conversation with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, an alternative to the project of the Route of La Seda, launched by the Asian nation in 2013. “I suggested that we should have, essentially, a similar initiative, starting from (participation in this of) democratic states, collaborating with communities around the world that, in fact, They need help, ”Biden said.

What happens is that the Chinese initiative is a huge commercial project, to connect Europe, South and East Asia, Central Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America. Its objective is the reconstruction of the old Silk Road and the creation of a parallel maritime route, with the participation of more than one hundred countries, which have more than 75% of the world's energy reserves, and represent 40% of GDP. world. It is sustained on pillars such as political communication, monetary circulation, mutual respect between peoples, and vital connectivity.

The reconfiguration of hegemonies is evident, while peace continues to be threatened by the pulse of powers.
