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

The breakaway region of South Ossetia announced in May that its capital, Tskhinvali, would also be known as Stalinir.  Co-naming the capital after the former Soviet leader, Joseph Stalin, its president – Anatolii Bibilov – stated in his decree that the move was to 'preserve historical memory in connection with the 75th anniversary of  Victory in the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945'  – until it had to be rescheduled for June. This is not an isolated case. In Russia, there have been several atte

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

Senate Races to Watch in the 2022 Midterms

An oddity for the party of power, Democrats are favoured to keep the Senate in next year’s mid-terms. With a 50-50 Senate the Democrats have a favourable map coupled with numerous Republican retirements (open seats are traditionally harder to defend). Recent analysis by Alan L. Abramowitz also showed that to stand a ‘good chance’ of keeping control of the Senate Democrats would only need to maintain single digit lead on the generic ballot going into next year’s midterms. Even in the worst-case s

It was 2012 and I remember what my supervisor told me well: BRICS are the future, and this is where the research (and) money will be going. In my American history class a few months earlier, the lecturer told us: BRICS will define the twenty-first century. [B]razil, [R]ussia, [I]ndia, [C]hina and [S]outh Africa were the talk of Wall Street for a decade. Just days after 9/11, Goldman Sachs’ Jim O’Neil coined the term in a paper calling for a power shift away from the US and Europe. In November 20

The British Labour Party were never short of ‘Russia problems’ in the twentieth century. Its first government was brought down by the fraudulent Zinoviev telegram whereas its second, and most successful, helped start the Cold War. But in 2017, Jeremy Corbyn was accused of apologising for Vladimir Putin. Following the Skripal poisoning, Corbyn called for ‘absolute evidence of guilt’ from the Russian state rather than an outright condemnation. Even when he did point the finger at Vladimir Putin,
