Russian news agency TASS on June 4 published two articles quoting from Helga Zepp-LaRouche, as an expert view on the push for world war and the geostrategic shifts with the rise of the Global South. In one article, “Striking Russia with NATO Weapons To Escalate to Global War—Expert,” TASS writes the following:

“The use of Western weapons to strike Russian territory is fraught with an escalation of the conflict, which may acquire a global level, Helga Zepp-LaRouche, the founder of Germany’s Schiller Institute, told TASS.

“Commenting on the U.S. administration lifting a ban on the use of American weapons to strike deep into Russian territory, Zepp-LaRouche wondered whether this is how U.S. President Joe Biden tries ‘to avoid World War III.’ Following a change in the position of the U.S., the German authorities also allowed the use of German-made weapons to defend the Kharkov Region from the Russian offensive, ‘shamefully again capitulating to U.S. pressure.’ Zepp-LaRouche pointed out that ‘Russia announced asymmetric responses to this escalation.’

“‘The biggest danger is that the Western establishments have talked themselves into believing that Russia is only bluffing, while they think they can continue to ’‘boil the Russian frog.” Meanwhile, Prime Minister Victor Orban said on Radio Kossuth today, that Europe is preparing for war against Russia. If this insane trajectory is not stopped, we will have Armageddon shortly. The alarm bells must ring loudly for everyone to hear,’ she emphasized.”

Published shortly earlier, TASS titled a different article featuring Zepp-LaRouche: “Global South Turns Away from Harmful Neoliberal Model, Builds Own Mechanisms—Expert.” The article includes:

“The Global Majority countries have turned away from the neoliberal model that is harmful to them, and they are working on their own financial mechanisms in beneficial cooperation with BRICS member states, Helga Zepp-LaRouche, the founder of the Schiller Institute, told TASS.

“‘We are experiencing right now the end of a period of 600 years of colonialism. The Global Majority, which represents more than 80% of the world population and 70% of the world’s GDP, is moving to build a new economic system based on a win-win cooperation and the Five Principles of Peaceful Cooperation,’ she said. Those principles include mutual respect for sovereignty and territorial integrity, mutual non-aggression, non-interference in each other’s internal affairs, equality and mutual benefit, and peaceful coexistence.

“The Global Majority countries ‘are working on their own financial mechanisms, which allow them access to credit for development to build up their own industrialized economies,’ the expert said. ‘If the countries of Europe and even the U.S. would be reasonable they would open to cooperate with these countries as growing future markets, and all problems could be solved easily,’ Zepp-LaRouche noted. Meanwhile ‘the pro-Atlanticist elites are completely unwilling to accept the fact that the disarray of the world order is the blow-back of their own policy,’ she stressed.

“‘The reason why the Global South has turned away from the neoliberal model is that it is harmful to them and they have now a much more advantageous option in cooperating with China and the BRICS in their effort to overcome underdevelopment and become middle level income countries in the near future. These establishments demonize Russia and increasingly also China. They are presently in a full delusion about the world and have talked themselves into believing their own narrative,’ she concluded.”
