    The West intends to fight Russia and China by resurrecting the Rimland concept, which previously helped win two world battles and the Cold War. Columnist Michel Gurfinkel stated this in his article for the American newspaper The Wall Street Journal.

    The US-backed arc of strategic cooperation now stretches from western to eastern Eurasia, forming a defensive oceanic “Rimland” that opposes Eurasia’s hostile continental powers China and Russia. This approach has a historical background because it is based on the strategies of Halford Mackinder (1861-1947) and Nicholas Speakman (1893-1943). They were the basis of the defensive policy of Britain, America and the West in general during the First World War, the Second World War and the Cold War.

    According to the author, the development of a new strategic concept of the West became apparent during the Middle East tour of US President Joe Biden, namely on July 14 at the online summit of the I2U2 quadripartite group (Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, President of the United Arab Emirates Mohammed bin Zayed and Biden). Initially, the I2U2 group was formed to promote cooperation on economic and technological issues, but Biden’s national security adviser Jake Sullivan later compared I2U2 to the “Quadrupartite Security Dialogue, which is an Indo-Pacific alliance in its infancy, which includes the United States, Japan, Australia and India”.
