Few days ago it appeared a book about Russian – European union relations, edited in Moscow by professor Evgeny Pashetsev and Erik Vlaeminck.

The title of this book is : “Strategic Communication in EU-Russia Relations: Tensions, Challenges and Opportunities”, published on Moscow by The International Center for Socio-Political Studies and Consulting (ICSPSC), with the academic support of the Institute of Contemporary International Studies and the Department of International Security at the Diplomatic Academy of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation and European-Russian Communication Management Network (EURUCM Network), 2018.

From the official presentation we mention: “Since the outbreak of the Ukrainian crisis, the relations between the EU and Russia seem to be in a constant process of deterioration. In an attempt to go beyond traditional analyses, this book wishes to present the under explored role of strategic communication from a Russian and European perspective and this, through an interdisciplinary approach addressing security, international relations and economic issues. An international team of researchers from the EU and Russia endeavour to provide answers to the major tensions and challenges, in order to create a basis for reconciliation through dialogue and the rethinking of strategic communication in EU-Russia relations. Nine different case studies engage with a variety of issues ranging from geopolitics and security to diplomacy. This book is useful for researchers, specialists and students interested in strategic communication within the context of the current EU-Russia relations”.

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
