Siberia with its natural resources is a very rich Russian territory. It gives everything and gets practically nothing from Moscow. Moscow elaborates plans and strategies on how to develop this region, considers huge investment from budget, however, the problems in Siberia grow, the population catastrophically decreases and opens the doors for illegal immigration of citizens of China.

Russia’s opinion concerning deployment of the U.S. Anti-Missile Defense (AMD) System in Poland and Czech Republic is firmly negative. Therefore it could be worth while analyzing a probable response of Russia to the above American initiative, following the assumption of a military threat to Russia.

  „To Be or Not to Be“ after V. Putin (II)

Viktor Denisenko
2007 06 06

The issue concerning a confederate state of Russia and Belarus has not yet been clarified. The confederate agreement has not been signed and the common currency not introduced. It seems that the above ally will remain nothing but a propaganda farce. But who knows...

  Asymmetric response is cheaper. But is it better?

The speech of the Russian President V.Putin in Munich on 10 February, in which he accused the United States on the global dictate, sounded like threatening. Moreover that on 1 February, while speaking about the intentions of the United States to dislocate the elements of the anti-missile defense system (PRG) in Poland and Czech Republic, he stated that for Russia external security is of vital importance; therefore „its actions would be asymmetric, however, very effective“.

Russia said good buy to B. Yelcin, the first democratically elected president and an undoubtedly contradictory state leader. What really surprised was a positive attitude of the majority of the Russian politicians and political analysts towards the late president.

  What is the real Russia‘s face?

Vadim Volovoj, Doctor in Political Sciences
2007 05 14

The answer to this question could be found in trying to understand the current policy of Russian authorities. We could also try to reveal the real face of Russia, i.e. the face not depending on the political conjuncture. The latter option would answer the question on whether the Russian authorities are adequate to the nature of Russia.

  Putin came once-and-for-all...

In view of the approaching presidential and parliamentary elections the Russian political powers and representatives of academic layers try to anticipate who will take over the wheel of the state from V. Putin‘s hands.

Chairman of Federal Council (FC) S. Mironov supports the idea of extension of the presidential term.
