European Civilisation on the Brink of Collapse
Europe is undergoing the greatest mass migration since the Second World War, US conservative political commentator and author Patrick J. Buchanan points out, posing the question whether European civilization will survive in 21th century.
Europe is unable to absorb millions of asylum seekers fleeing from war-torn regions of the Middle East and North Africa; they come from other civilizations and cultures and will change the face of Europe forever, US conservative political commentator and author Patrick J. Buchanan notes.
It will never be the same again.
"The threats raised by the mass migration into Europe rise to the level of the existential. Can a civilization survive the replacement of the people who created it by people of other races, religions, and civilizations? Ask the Native Americans," Buchanan writes in his article for the American Conservative.
"Will Europe remain Europe if she is repopulated by Arabs, Muslims, Asians, and Africans? What will hold Europe together? Free trade?" he asks.

The American author reminds that unlike the United States, Europe has never experienced mass migration.
Indeed, from 1890 to 1920 America had faced a huge influx of migrants. However, most of them were European nationals, mostly Christians. 
Those who are pouring into Europe now are representatives of other civilizations and cultures. They are not inclined to assimilate into the European community but rather try to preserve their own cultural identity by creating enclaves "to replicate the lands whence they came," Buchanan underscores.
To complicate matters further, there is seemingly no end in sight to the migrations from Africa and the Middle East.
"As long as Europe's borders remain open, they will come. And the people who wish to come number not just in the millions but the tens and scores of millions. And they know how to get there," the US author remarks.
The desire of millions of people to flee war, terror and poverty and seek the good life in Europe is perfectly understandable.
However, the question arises: "Will European civilization survive the century?" the conservative commentator asks, citing Hungarian President Viktor Orban.
"With birth rates in this smallest and least populated of continents below replacement levels for decades, Europe is aging, shrinking and dying, as it is being invaded and altered forever," he warns.

Simultaneously, one can observe the rise of right-wing movements in Europe as a response to the migrant flow. On the other hand, the support for Angela Merkel, who has opened Germany to millions of refugees, is decreasing.
According to Buchanan, "if the mass migrations are not halted, the rise of nationalist regimes at the expense of Europe's liberals and leftists is inevitable."
So is there a way out?
Buchanan believes that the United States is able to help Europe to mend the situation.
"One day soon, a voice will arise across the Atlantic calling for an end to this invasion, by force if necessary, and declare: "Let Europe be Europe!" he added.

DUBAI, November 12 (Sputnik) — The first batch of the Khibiny aircraft electronic countermeasures (ECM) system converting Sukhoi Su-34 fighters into electronic warfare aircraft will be delivered to the Russian Aerospace Forces in November, Igor Nasenkov, the first deputy general director of the Radio-Electronic Technologies Concern (KRET), said.
"The first batch will be delivered in November 2015," he told RIA Novosti in an interview at the Dubai Airshow-2015.
The official added that the systems, installed on the wingtips of Su-34s, provide the jets with electronic warfare capabilities and enable them to carry out effective electronic countermeasures against radar systems, anti-aircraft missile systems and airborne early warning and control aircraft.
KRET, Russia's largest radio-electronics holding company, was founded in 2009. The holding uniting over 95 companies is part of Russia’s state technologies corporation Rostec.

"KRET will invest 24 billion rubles [some $367 millions] in research and development of locally-produced equipment previously purchased in the European Union, Eastern Europe and in the United States," Nasenkov said referring to import substitution.
He added that some 4.6 billion rubles would be allocated to substitute import from Ukraine and ensure independence from the Ukrainian suppliers as soon as 2016. Nasenkov added that all the equipment produced in NATO and EU states is scheduled to be replaced in 2017.

Import substitution in Russia's defense-industrial sector has been implemented since mid-2014 after the West imposed several rounds of sanctions against Moscow, citing an alleged involvement in the Ukraine conflict. The restrictions targeted Russia's banking, energy and defense sectors.
On September 19, Russian President Vladimir Putin said his country must have its own production of advanced components for military equipment.
