    A World Without Superpowers

    Washington’s unilateral actions on the global stage, far from yielding positive results in Afghanistan and Iraq, run counter to the objective processes in the international economy and politics.

    Perception of Russia in the World

    The end of the Cold War did not put a stop to the confrontation between ideas and perceptions.

Israel and Gaza: Determination vs. Desperation

The Israel–Hamas conflict threatens to escalate into a new war that could surpass anything seen during the previous operations in the Gaza Strip in terms of the amount of bloodshed.

Two Significant Developments in US-Russian Relations

What has emerged over the past year is a two-track US policy: resumption of contacts between the two presidents with a promise of more summits and reopening of discussion channels on a number of issues at the same time as there has been an escalation of sanctions.
