  Kyrgyzstan: a Test Site for Russian and American contest

Èeslovas Iðkauskas, political analyst
2010 05 10

A new revolution in Kyrgyzstan. President K.Bakiyev managed to stay in power for five years, gathered too sweet fruits of the „tulip revolution“ and made Russia irritated. Riots in the country on 7-8 April led to the opposition’s statement concerning „restoration of democracy“, whereas K.Bakiyev had to run (by plane) to the country’s southwest to look for a shelter among relatives and supporters.

  NATO seeks new Afghan transit routes

While planning the intervention in Afghanistan, the Western allies have chosen the Khyber Pass in Pakistan as the main military supplies route. About 75 percent of military cargo was shipped to the Port of Karachi and transported to Kabul by 2000 km land routes. The Khyber Pass is a serpentine road over mountain passes and is the best connection between Pakistan and Afghanistan.

  Breakthrough at Katyn

Prof. Vytautas Landsbergis, Member of the European Parliament
2010 04 27

Everything gets in its right place. It becomes clear what is behind certain hearts (if these hearts are still alive) and minds: the brain or a sponge. The conscience, a nearly forgotten phenomenon, wakes up. It evidences about the soul, it can make mountains move and break through the concrete.

  Yanukovych’s Revenge

Dr. Andreas Umland, National University of “Kyiv-Mohyla Academy”, Departament of Political Science
2010 04 22

Largely unnoticed in the West, Ukraine’s new President, Viktor Yanukovych, has brought to power an illegitimate government, in March 2010. Though being installed via a seemingly orderly parliamentary procedure, the current Ukrainian cabinet headed by Prime-Minister Mykola Azarov has no proper popular mandate. How did that come about?

  Iran‘s nuclear programs: friends and opponents of Tehran

Valentinas Mitë
2010 04 19

It wouldn‘t be right to say that Iran is completely isolated and has no friends. Moreover, there is no single opinion on Iran‘s nuclear programs and on whether attempts to stop these programs by international sanctions are efficient.


Prof. Vytautas Landsbergis, Member of the European Parliament
2010 04 19

With all deepest sympathy we feel to Polish people, there is an open question for today and tomorrow. That’s the fundamental reason and message - the Katyn statement ­– with what kept at heart President Kaczynski moved to meet his destiny.

  The West and the East, or the shadow of a new cold war

Viktor Denisenko
2010 04 15

The cold war seemed to be in the distant past. Contraposition between the East and the West after the collapse of the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Block seemed to loose relevance. NATO revises the concept of its strategy and identifies the international terrorism and other new challenges as main threats. France, a member of NATO, sells military ships to Russia. But does all the above mean that stability and harmony have been reached in  the European Continent?

  China has its own way of overcoming the crisis

Èeslovas Iðkauskas, political analyst
2010 03 31

China‘s economic phenomenon is fascinating and mysterious at the same time. Reforms which started in 1978 are successfully accomplished, and an almost two year crisis demonstrated the strength of the „Asian tiger“. According to Reuters information released in November of the last year, during the years of the crisis the number of billionaires in China has increased from 101 to 130, whereas the global numbers have decreased by 23 percent.

  Why Russia is reluctant to contribute to NATO’s military campaign in Afghanistan?

Aivaras Bagdonas, VU TSPMI doktorantas
2010 03 15

It seems that former active dialogue between Moscow and Brussels on Afghanistan has come to a dead-end. At the end of 2009 NATO initiated a new military campaign in Afghanistan and now it urges Russia to take joint and firm actions. But Russia is reluctant to accept this initiative.

  Petition against the sale of Mistrals to Russia

2010 03 15

We, European citizens of the countries neighbouring Russia, wish to express our misgivings about the French government’s intention of selling “Mistrals” to Russia.

According to Vladimir Vysotsky, the commander of the Russian Navy “A Mistral-type vessel will significantly increase the fighting and maneuvering capabilities of the Russian navy. During the events of August 2008 (the Russo-Georgian war), this ship would have enabled the Russian fleet in the Black Sea to carry out its mission in 40 minutes instead of 26 hours”.

  Russia Europe: The dangers of a «reset»

Françoise Thom
2010 03 01

What strikes a historian when looking at the relationship between Russia and Europe is the unchanging illusions Russia produces in the imagination of Westerners, and Russia’s ability to dictate the conceptual frameworks within which it wants to be interpreted - and misunderstood - abroad.

  Crimes of the Communist Regimes

Prof. Vytautas Landsbergis, Member of the European Parliament
2010 02 25

The most terrible war crime is the war itself. More precisely, somebody’s initiated war of deliberate destruction and conquest, usually based on conspiracy and betrayal of the given international commitments, without regard for the caused human suffering, - this is the war crime Number one. If there is no war, where would war crimes come from?

  North Korea also experiences crisis

Viktor Denisenko
2010 02 17

The economic downturn has affected nearly all the world but North Korea managed to escape from its influence, since more severe and deeper crisis has been lasting in the country for years.

  Ukraine’s Future: The Precarious Alternatives to an EU Membership Perspective (1)

Dr. Andreas Umland, National University of “Kyiv-Mohyla Academy”, Departament of Political Science
2010 02 12

Zbigniew Brzezinski’s dictum that, without Ukraine, Russia is no longer an empire is well-known in Europe too. Yet, its topicality for European security seems insufficiently appreciated in Brussels. While the EU cannot directly influence relations between Russia and Ukraine, any more than it can solve her problems, its Eastern policies do nonetheless affect both Kyiv’s foreign affairs and Ukrainian domestic politics.

  On tragedies

Prof. Vytautas Landsbergis, Member of the European Parliament
2010 01 28

What then about the Holodomor or death camps of Nazis and Soviet bolsheviks, indoctrinated and premeditated for extermination day-by-day of millions of innocents? We need again a different, special definition there for the dark creatures – from the system-builders to physical perpetrators, so similar to humans - but we would abuse the beasts when calling those shaped on two legs by this very word.
