Hybrid Cooperation: A New Model for Russia-EU Relations

... so-called “hybrid relations” model. Hybrid vehicles use two or more sources of energy, usually a conventional internal combustion engine (ICE) and an electric battery. In our case, the old model of geopolitical confrontation between East and West (the Cold War model) plays the role of an ICE.

U.S. Questions Russian Intentions

... hard for the United States’ government to understand and which seem to have an effect on Russian foreign policy. There are multiple other factors, of course, but those are the three main ones that I see in deterioration of relations. Is it a new Cold War?
