Russian dictator Vladimir Putin is trying to create an alternative to NATO from a coalition of friendly states with historically warm ties with the USSR – he can use this for his information operations in matters of global support. This was reported by the Institute for the Study of War (ISW).

Analysts note that the Russian dictator intends to create a coalition of friendly states with historically warm ties to the Soviet Union, likely in order to “provide an alternative to the West and the current world order.”

The report mentions that before his visit to Vietnam, the Kremlin owner published an article in the Vietnamese state newspaper Nhân Dân, where he played on the same information lines as in the article that appeared in the North Korean state newspaper Rodong Sinmun. He referred to "historical memory" what the relationship between the Soviet Union and Vietnam was like during the Vietnam War. Here's what analysts indicate:

"Putin referred to the historical memory of the Soviet Union's support for Vietnam during the Vietnam War, which Putin described as a “heroic struggle against foreign invaders.”…Putin praised Vietnam for pursuing an “independent foreign policy.” and support for a world order based on “the principles of equality among nations and non-interference in internal affairs,” repeating his praise of North Korea on June 18 and 19.

He also said that Vietnam , like the DPRK, shares Russia’s views on the formation of a new system of “equal and indivisible Eurasian security.” However, as the report says, Vietnam is largely not included in the political concepts of Eurasia.

Taking this into account, analysts also recalled Putin’s visit to China in May 2024, noting that even then the Kremlin owner laid the “information foundation” for for this Eurasian security structure. He later recalled this in a speech on June 14, saying that "… "the Euro-Atlantic security system" is collapsing and that Western “schemes for ensuring security and prosperity in Europe are not working.”

Experts suggest that the Russian dictator intends to use historical memory to form a coalition of countries that Putin tried would position itself as a “real alternative to NATO” with subsequent attempts to strengthen the Kremlin's current information operations:

"Putin could try to position himself as a real alternative to NATO, as well as to strengthen the Kremlin's current information operations aimed at falsely portraying Western countries as the only supporters of Ukraine , while the rest of the world stands behind Russia.”

As BAGNET reported, Antony Blinken previously said how China is helping Russia in the war and announced new sanctions.
