25 Principles of International Order: A Roadmap to Peace

... to stop its provocations. The record shows that a readiness to compromise was totally absent on the side of US and NATO when it came to the central issue of NATO expansion and the crafting of a European security architecture that would take into account both Ukrainian and Russian security concerns. NATO’s consistent refusal to recognize Russia’s vital interests in a modicum of security certainly made a mockery of the obligations laid out in Art. 2(3) of the UN Charter. Indeed, in order for negotiations under article ...


A Russian Perspective on the Food Crisis

... authorities agree to cooperate on the matter constructively. They should start by removing the mines they set. We urge you to read once again the statements made by Russian president Vladimir Putin on June 3 and Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on June 8 that Russia would guarantee the safety of such routes and would not use them in the interests of the special operation.

Professor Jeffrey Sachs: “I Don’t Believe in Isolating Russia

... I described earlier (based on Ukraine’s neutrality and the Minsk agreements) would help to settle this dangerous conflict in a manner that most of the world will support. What is your take on the U.S. and the EU decision to freeze a significant chunk of Russia’s Central Bank currency reserves? In 19 or even 20 centuries, such an aggressive move could be treated as casus belli. Do you think that this has become a new normal in the 21 st century? I disagree with the US approach and believe that the global ...

... paved the way for the relaunch of the feminist discourse, and this time the central issue was specifically that of suffrage.

Equal rights for men and women in all spheres of public life were thus proclaimed. In 1919, Lenin wrote: "In the years of Soviet power, much more has been done in one of the most backward countries ...


We are at war with the West. The European security order is illegitimate

... Ukraine were going very much like Germany in the 1930s». You say that NATO promised never to enlarge to the East and Russia was cheated on that. But former Warsaw Pact countries requested to be included in NATO themselves. And Russia signed up to the Founding Act on Russia-NATO relations in 1997, accepting NATO enlargement. No cheating there. «It was the biggest mistake of Russia’s foreign policy in the last 30 years. I fought against it, because the Founding Act of 1997 legitimized further NATO expansion. But ...

... interaction in cyberspace is annunciated as a strategic threat to Russia and its informational sovereignty [ 25 ].

The Confused Superpower: A Year After America's Elections

... significance of what is happening inside this huge “billiard ball”, the transformations taking place there inevitably affect its movement and, therefore, we must take them into account. Therefore, the mere fact that the United States is the only country besides Russia to have large, terrifying stockpiles of nuclear weapons (and at the same time have decisive influence on the world financial system), is already a sufficiently solid reason to speculate about the significance of important developments in the history ...

... wants to set the rules. On top of all this, Moscow has ambitions to become a major hydrogen energy producer. It also has a protective attitude toward the melting Arctic, where it has the largest shoreline and exclusive economic zone of all littoral countries.

Rather, it will act in accordance with its national interests,...
