The actions of the RF-Iran-China triangle are aimed at destroying the world order, - Ihor Petrenko

Today, a new "axis of evil" has been formed - the Russian Federation-Iran-China triangle (plus their satellites), which is destroying the world order. This was stated by Ihor Petrenko, Doctor of Political Science, expert at the United Ukraine Analytical Center, in a commentary for С

"Yes, there is no confirmed information that Tehran was directly involved in the Hamas attack on Israel. Yes, China seems to have nothing to do with it. But the Chinese shadow can be traced behind all the actions of the Russians, Iranians, and even North Koreans. And Iran is definitely a sponsor of both Hamas and Lebanese Hezbollah," the expert explains.

According to him, it should be understood that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is a tangle of different problems and actors (players with opposing interests). The Arab world itself is heterogeneous and has a different vision of what is happening.

"At the moment, Israel seems to have regained control over its territories. And it seems to be planning a ground operation in the Gaza Strip. So far, Israeli aviation is actively working there. At the same time, the problem of Lebanon and Hezbollah's weapons rattling around there remains relevant. As many analysts have already noted, Hamas's attack on Israel was clearly carefully prepared and supported by more powerful players. Of course, the shadow of suspicion falls on Iran, which traditionally denies everything. But it also denies the supply of drones to Russia, but the Shahids have been attacking Ukraine for a year now," emphasizes Ihor Petrenko.

He also believes that Russia's reaction to the escalation in the Middle East is indicative. According to the expert, they have clearly taken the side of Hamas, a terrorist organization that was nurtured by the USSR and later taken over by Iran. But the old ties remain. And the Kremlin somehow has both influence on Hamas and ties with it. It is no coincidence that the Main Intelligence Directorate (GUR) of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine warns that Russia will try to push the crazy idea that it was Ukraine that supplied weapons to Hamas against the backdrop of the Middle East escalation. It is clear that this is not true. But when has this ever been important for Russian propaganda?

"Everything that is happening should be looked at globally," the expert is sure. "China is acting more with economic instruments on the world stage, preferring such expansion. To Europe, Asia, and Africa. And with the help of rogue states such as North Korea, Iran, and Russia, which are more or less dependent on Chinese aid, Beijing creates proxy conflicts and resumes old wars. And in this way, it opposes the democratic world led by the United States."

Unfortunately, the West still has an existential fear of a world war, says Ihor Petrenko. And the new "axis of evil" represented by China, Russia and Iran is playing on this. Autocratic regimes can mobilize quickly. They do not spare people - neither their own nor others. They do not play by the rules.

"It is obvious that the democratic world should become much tougher. Proving that goodness also has fists. And it is not afraid to use them. After all, it was the weak reaction of the West to everything that Russia did (first in Georgia, and since 2014 - in Ukraine, eventually going to a direct invasion) that led to the fact that Africa began to "storm" (a series of coups, again, not without a Russian trace), and now the Middle East has also flared up," the expert emphasizes.

It is clear, he continues, that the Palestinian-Israeli conflict has its roots in Russia. But the fact that it has once again escalated right now is a consequence of the weakness of the West's response to Russian aggression.

"There have been no new sanctions packages for a long time. The supply of arms and ammunition to Ukraine, which was already delayed, with reservations, and in insufficient quantities, has begun to fail. And against the backdrop of the escalation in the Middle East, the provision of assistance to us may slow down even more," explains Ihor Petrenko, "which, of course, plays into the hands of the Russian Federation. And what Peskov himself openly says."

If the West does not want to face new threats, it should actively work to change authoritarian regimes, the expert notes. It should support any movements that oppose them as much as possible. Both externally and internally.

"The task is difficult. And there have already been some attempts that have failed. But if this is not done, such regimes will continue to destroy the world order, which will sooner or later lead to its complete collapse with all the consequences for all of humanity," warns the source of the Commentary. "And it is quite true that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy compares Hamas to Russia. They use the same terrorist tools. And the mass executions of civilians carried out by the Russians in Ukraine (Bucha, Irpin, Gostomel are just the most famous examples) seem to have been copied by Hamas, which created a nightmare in Israel, killing people on the streets, in their homes, at festivals. The democratic world should treat Hamas and Russia accordingly. And just as Israel rejected the possibility of negotiations with Hamas after what it did, so, quite logically, Ukraine rejects negotiations with the current leadership of Russia, which is essentially a terrorist regime."

Ihor Petrenko summarizes: it is high time to realize that autocratic, dictatorial regimes are essentially terrorist regimes. And, like the terrorist organizations they sponsor, they perceive any concession as weakness. Attempts to pacify them eventually lead to new aggressions with even more victims. Deterrence is not enough here. "We need to promote fundamental changes, the collapse of such regimes in every possible way. The task, I repeat, is difficult. But postponing it only leads to the cementing of such regimes. And new aggressions," the expert concludes.
