Europe and the Atomic Bomb

... domestic and foreign policy failures. However, we also cannot rule out that the further degradation of France will force its elite to really place its most important security-related tasks in the hands of a senior partner in the economic management of Europe. And, finally, Russia will play a certain role in realising the prospects of the German atomic bomb. At the moment, Moscow’s actions are being cited as a justification for Germany’s return to militarism. However, one cannot completely dismiss the possibility that ...


Threading the Needle: Turkey’s East-West Balancing Act

... apart from Russia and/or the West: Syria, arms sales, the South Caucasus, and Ukraine. This balance is of the utmost importance for Turkey, both to establish itself as a major independent regional player and to maintain its essential trade ties with Russia, the EU, and the U.S. The ongoing confrontation in Ukraine is perhaps the biggest test of this balance yet, but Turkey seems to have the capacity to maintain it so far. First, it must be understood that Turkey’s balance has a certain uniqueness in that despite ...

... well as energy partnership agreements for the development of hydrogen and nuclear power facilities in Algeria – a continual point of discussion in negotiations between Moscow and Algiers throughout the last two decades.

... because the Americans have their own interests». The EU seems to be moving towards cutting dependence from Russian energy – first coal, then oil and finally natural gas. Did you expect that? «I hope you are not suicidal. Of course that would damage Russia, too, but Europe would undermine its economy and its social situation. I hope it will not happen, because you can calculate your own interests. If you don’t want our coal, we will sell it somewhere else. If you don’t want our oil, after a time and some losses,...

BM You have argued that in the future there could be some kind of alliance between Russia and Europe – or at least some European countries, if not others. Surely now you must think there is no possibility for Europe and Russia to come closer together. SK If we could have solved the crisis peacefully there’s no question that parts of Europe ...

Politics at the time of the evaporation of the function of the Name of the Father

... Benedictus XVI for his “inaction in sexual abuse cases”, show the demolition of politics as worthy of issuing ideals, of representing an authority, of guiding and ruling, leaving the individual without a guide, without that Father who, as argued by Freud and Lacan, must be killed in order for the individual to become a subject. On the other hand, there is Russia which, although belonging to the Western, Greek-Roman-Christian civilization, tries to decline the function of the Name of the Father in a different way: Putin defends the function of political power as authority, while in the West authority is ...
