    [3996]

    Only a strong and well-considered relationship between Russia and China can constitute a powerful enough global counterweight to the unipolarity and the United States’ strategic offensive posture, and also act as a midwife in the birth of an undeniably multipolar world order.

    Key Actors in the Libyan Conflict

    [2592]

    To be successful, any government of Libya should take into account the demands of the tribes and rely on the support of the Libyans rather than endless help from abroad. Currently, there is no leader in Libya capable of acting without foreign support.

    Where to Go and with Whom to Go: Russia’s Foreign Policy on the Threshold of a New Decade

    [1950]

    Russia is entering a new decade with significant (and I am even tempted to say brilliant) foreign and defense policy achievements, and with a substantial margin of strength. But the challenges and problems lying ahead are fraught with deceleration or even rollback.

    The World at a Crossroads and a System of International Relations for the Future

    [1404]

    Will the multipolar world continue to take shape through cooperation and harmonization of interests or through confrontation and rivalry? This depends on all of us. It is now important to start a strategic dialogue on concrete threats and risks and to seek consensus on a commonly acceptable agenda.

    Perceptions of Russia in the Global World

    [1346]

    The existing ideas of modern Russia and its place in the world, on the one hand, and the awareness of Russia’s cultural and historical contribution to world civilization, on the other, contradict each other in piecing together the country’s integral image.

    Resilience in EU Discourse: A New Norm in Relations with Russia?

    [1109]

    Resilience as a new norm allows the EU to emphasize Russia’s “otherness” and thus assert its own identity as a normative leader. The focus on threats sets out a clear action plan for fighting threats associated with Russia.

    How to Stop NATO

    [1014]

    Catherine the Great is credited with saying that the only way to secure the borders of the Russian Empire is to expand them continuously. This logic is to some degree applicable to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, which embarked on a path of geographical enlargement quite literally from the very first days of its existence.

    The Asian Mirror for the Far East: an Indian Perspective

    [931]

    India and Russia have long shared geopolitical perspectives on the balance of power in Eurasia. In the post-Cold War era both turned their attention to the West. However, over the past decade India has pursued the Look East Policy, seeking to regain its political and economic influence in Southeast Asia and building new strategic partnerships with East Asian powers like Japan and South Korea. Russia’s Turn to the East and India’s move from the Look East to the Act East Policy have created a new framework for closer India–Russia geo-economic and geopolitical relations.

    Russia as a “Trauma”

    [912]

    Recognizing publicly Russia’s sovereignty over all the Kuril Islands for Japan would be tantamount to losing face. It is possible to resolve the issue only within the framework of a package deal, the contours of which are still very blurry.

    Has Russia Established a New International Role?

    [828]

    Whether Moscow can build a broader international role is not apparent; it will require more than filling in the spaces that the United States leaves blank. Doing so on a long-term basis will also require preparing for the next inevitable cycle of American activism.

    From “Chaos” to “Order” to Uncertainty

    [677]

    The “Russian Spring” in Russia and Xi Jinping’s “new normal” in China evoked a controversial reaction among Chinese Russia experts. On the one hand, they treated Putin almost “panegyrically,” but on the other hand, they increasingly voiced concern over growing uncertainty about Russia’s future.

    Australia’s Approach to Cooperation with Russia

    [658]

    Russia’s Far East and Siberia have much in common with Australia in terms of geopolitical, geo-economic, and even sociopolitical characteristics. However, Russia-Australia economic cooperation has been showing a downward trend over the last decade.

    Are You with the Globalists or Patriots?

    [607]

    Trump offers other countries’ leaders a choice between two sides in the current and future world politics: the globalists or the patriots. The price of this choice to be paid is “merely” the level of relations with Trump’s United States. So, the temptation to make the correct choice is quite obvious.
