... through measured, albeit quite modest, de-escalation measures, including progress on the demarcation line in Donbass and along the Russian-Ukrainian border.

Igor Ivanov’s Remarks at the Federal Academy for Security Policy

... The most obvious example of this is the deployment of elements of the U.S. missile defence system in Europe. Russia repeatedly suggested developing that system together. The American side rejected all of our proposals. The same happened in 2008 when Russia proposed starting joint work on a European Security Treaty that would make it possible to create a single, undivided Euro-Atlantic security space.

Taking a New Look at Nuclear Peace

... strategic stability. GEOPOLITICAL AND INTELLECTUAL BACKGROUND I understand that I may be branded a new “Dr. Strangelove who learned to love the bomb” from Stanley Kubrick’s political satire black comedy from the 1960s. But I believe that not only Russia with economy still suffering from inept reforms, but also all other countries could benefit from reasonable and thoughtful reliance on nuclear deterrence. At the beginning of my academic career in the 1970s and 1980s, I spent a lot of time and ...

Russia, Turkey and the Vision of Greater Europe

... capital, natural resources and investment opportunities that could give a boost to the stagnant EU economies. Russia and Turkey are also natural gateways to other regions and other markets that Europe can explore. Finally, one cannot seriously discuss the European security without Russia and Turkey – if our two countries are not a part of the equation, the eastern and the southern EU borders remain chronically instable. In my view, the time has come to start working together on a new European – or even a Euro-Atlantic ...


European Security Space: the Problem with Ukraine

... European security and relative stability. The absence of coordinated or at least mutually acceptable actions between Russia and the West, with the tug of war across Ukraine in full swing, will definitely deepen the ESS rift. Fourth, the European security crisis will have long-term political and economic consequences, as both the EU and Russia are already in search of alternative trade, financial and investment ties, first of all in the area of energy.
