Russia and Europe: From Romanticism to Pragmatism

... call this period a “romantic” ride. There have been romantics on both sides of the relationship – people who truly believed in the possibility of creating, in the shortest time, a common and indivisible pan-European space in terms of economics, security, science, education, culture and civil society.
