Abordarea relației româno – ruse se face diferit, în funcție de locul de unde se face analiza. Pentru un sud-american detașarea este mai ușor de realizat, dar pentru un polonez, ungur, ceh, slovac sau ucrainean obiectivitatea are un grad mai redus. Evident, o doză de sentiment este și mai lesne de detectat dacă analistul este român sau rus. Sentimentele omenești nu trebuie să acopere însă precum un nor soarele lucidității și al pragmatismului. Relațiile dintre state – alături de relațiile dintr

The approach of the relations between Romania and Russia is carried out differently, according to the place where the analysis is performed. For a South American, detachment comes easier, but Polish, Hungarian, Czech, Slovakian or Ukrainian citizens cannot be equally objective. Obviously, a degree of sentiment is even easier to detect if the analyst is Romanian or Russian. However, human feelings must not eclipse the glow of lucidity and pragmatism. Every day, interstate relations, together wit

Румыно-российские отношения можно рассматривать по-разному, в зависимости от того, где делается анализ. Южноамериканцу легче это сделать более беспристрастно. А поляк, венгр, словак или украинец будут менее объективными. Очевидно, что присутствуют больше эмоций, если аналитики являются румынами или русскими. Человеческие чувства не должны затмевать, как облако солнце, здравый смысл и прагматизм. Государства в своих каждодневных отношениях, как и народы, более трезвые и расчетливые, и не руковод

Unbeknownst to most Britons, Russia did, in fact, impact many of the UK's elections over the course of the twentieth century. Not by physically meddling or favouring one party or candidate over the other. Not even through Soviet propaganda sold in the West. Rather, it was a passive force lurking in the background needing to be acknowledged and dealt with, by one party in particular. The appearance of the USSR following the October Revolution followed a wave of popularity for socialism across th

Why Hasn’t Rugby Caught on in Russia?

One of the coldest games of rugby ever recorded took place in Russia at a temperature lower than -40. The players wore balaclavas, gloves and parkers as they took on the unforgiving Russian winter. To no surprise, rugby has become a summer game in Russia. It begins in mid spring and ends just before the first snow falls. This, among several other factors, affects the popularity of the game in the world’s biggest country. Since its inception in 1928, the Russian Rugby Federation has come and go

După destrămarea URSS, Azerbaijanul a fost statul ex-sovietic care alături de    republicile Baltice a avut o dezvoltare constantă și durabilă. Desigur, aici pot fi adresate unele critici regimului de la Baku cu privire la democrație, care în opinia multor analiști este doar mimată la Baku. Însă faptul adevărat este că acest stat a reușit să își gestioneze eficient resursele de care dispune pentru a deveni o societate prosperă. I se atribuie Azerbaijanului eticheta de petro-stat, lucru care este

In ordinary circumstances, Doug Jones would already be preparing to move to Washington DC. The former prosecutor famous for convicting KKK members for a church bombing is up against gay bashing, God and gun lovin’, twice kicked out of elected office, Judge Roy Moore. A man who has eight accusers of sexual assault, all of whom were underage at the time of the allegations. Yet, if one looks at all the recent polls, they show a tight race. If the two candidates aren’t neck and neck, one or the oth

Întotdeauna, statele sunt nevoite să își apere poziția pe marea tablă a geopoliticii, uitându-se cu grijă la vecini, dar și la puterile regionale. Această regulă presupune nu doar poziția ofensivă, ci și valorificare atuurilor, astfel încât să devină piese care contează pe „câmpul de analiză”, iar nu elemente neglijabile, care sunt măturate dintr-o dată de cei ce au suficientă putere să mânuiască piesele. Caucazul, ca regiune geopolitică, nu face nici ea excepție, deoarece acolo actorii sunt fo

Something that the British deserve some credit for is their lack of care for how other countries perceive them. Rarely does it tickle our curiosity and we are unapologetic about it. If it did bother us, the tourist hotspots of Marbella, Benidorm, Zante, Napa and the like would be unrecognisable today. Historically speaking, few Britons also want reminding of slavery or atrocities in the colonies. This is down to both an unabashed pride and some guilt. Much deeper than this, the Anglo-Saxon ment
