European Union or European Division: Challenges for OSCE

The article originally appeared at the Balkan Security Agenda's analytical blog (http://www.balsec.org/category/blog/). On 28 June 2014, 100 years have passed since the initiation of the World War I. The world has changed much during the last century, but the very insecurity characterized the European continent still persists today.

Look, who is the best friend of Russia in Japan? –An economic consequence of Japanese election 2013 on Russia-Japan relations
