How Russia Saved the United States Twice

... this nation-building war. Unfortunately, they are never reminded about Russia’s contribution to the U.S. independence. The second most important conflict in America was the Civil War (1861-1865). This time, once again, Russia was on the right side of history.

Both men initiated fundamental reforms to reconstruct their countries, both ...

Bridges to India

Based on long history in The Valley, about 80% of startups will stagnate or die, even with experienced venture capitalists helping motivated and skilled entrepreneurs.

Russian re-industrialization dangers – lessons from Japan and USA

Russia’s greatness is in the resilience, endurance and inner strength of her people. They have recovered from many devastating tragedies that have befallen the country, from the Mongol scourge to civil war, and from the fascist invasion of the mid-20th century to the tragic decade that followed the collapse of the Soviet Union. Because of that terrible decade, Russia finds itself once again having to regroup and rebuild, to get back to the position of technological superiority that had reached its...

The Munich Agreement 80 Years On

... Agreement, which marked its 80th anniversary last month, has become synonymous with the perils of appeasing megalomaniacal tyrants. Yet while most discussions focus on the Anglo-French betrayal of Czechoslovakia that would trigger the worst war in human history, there is a commonly overlooked lesson to this tragedy: the need of small nations to defend their independence at all costs, even at the risk of defying most of the international community. Had Czechoslovakia defied the Munich sellout and defended ...

Ukraine untold: Is it time for America to ignore Ukraine’s unsolved past, and sacrifice its core values and national interest on the alter of the post-Cold War blindness?

... complementing sometimes incomplete reporting on this very important issue for the future of my country and the CEE region security), I have a legitimate fear that President Trump’s vision could be doomed by “an ahistorical people... [who are not thought] history anymore as a sequence of events… but deal with it in terms of themes without context,” as Kissinger rightly noticed.Having said that, wholeheartedly believing that in order to pursue realistic foreign policy first and foremost we should try ...
