Special Warheads and the Special Military Operation

... nuclear-related rhetoric. It certainly does not mean curtailing freedom of speech as such, but it appears possible to prohibit officials, including legislators, from making public statements concerning permissibility of nuclear strikes or from putting forward accusations of nuclear terrorism. Third, with an NPT Review Conference coming up, it would appear very useful to re-launch the activities of the P5, if not in a full-fledged cooperation mode, then at least in coordinating the parties’ stances. Mutual accusations ...

A Little Britain’s Reach Out To The Big Indo-Pacific

... cooperation, shaping a stable multilateral dialogue on key issues in security and development. Yet, all of these things have fallen by the wayside of the agenda pursued by the British leadership.

Russia-West: Is It Possible to Lift the Sanctions?

The inclusion of sanctions in the formula for a compromise on Ukraine is quite possible. Total pessimism is hardly desirable here Diplomatic manoeuvring by Russia and Ukraine on the issue of a peace agreement, or at least a ceasefire, naturally raise the question of a possible lifting of Western sanctions against Russia. American officials have already made it clear that Washington will lift the previously-imposed sanctions if the current military operation is ceased. Andrey Kortunov: The end...

Should Russia Be Worried by the New AUKUS Alliance?

Decisions made by NATO may be unpalatable for Moscow, but they are generally consistent and predictable. The same cannot be said of structures such as AUKUS The establishment of a new trilateral military and political alliance consisting of the United States, Australia, and the UK (AUKUS) and the corollary rupture of France’s “contract of the century” to build a new generation of diesel-powered submarines for Australia elicited mixed reactions in Russia. Some were pleased to see a conflict arise...

Barrier Reef to Counter China: Nuclear Edition

Unless the partnership falls apart for some reason in years to come, AUKUS may well mark a watershed One of the biggest news stories of this year—both in terms of military-technological cooperation and in the geopolitical sense— seemingly appeared out of the blue last week. The U.S., Australia and the UK set up what was dubbed AUKUS, a military and political grouping, whose first publicly stated goal is to be the building of atomic submarines for the Royal Australian Navy (RAN). Throughout the...

Britain Learns to Apply Sanctions

One of the notable events in July was the imposition by Britain of restrictions on a number of Russian and foreign officials in the area of human rights. This was London’s first independent programme of sanctions after Brexit. The Russian Foreign Ministry justifiably perceived these sanctions as an unfriendly act and interference in domestic affairs. Russia has reserved the right to respond. At the same time, the media uproar around this event seems excessive compared to the content of these sanctions...

The Global Value Shift: Adjusting the Institutional Framework

I think God’s going to come down and pull civilization over for speeding. – Stephen Wright A civilization is built on what is required of men, not on that which is provided to them – Antoine de Saint-Exupéry One of the dimensions in the reform of global governance and the role of the United Nations is a rebalancing of global development priorities towards human capital development. Perhaps one of the key lessons from the current crisis is that finance is not the sole prerogative of global governance...
