А.Оrlov: Morality in the international policy
There nave been accumulated evidently quite a lot of questions requiring fast and clear answers. The West having provoked the confrontation with Russia tries to solve all the problems that have been arisen by means of the increase of pressure upon us. However the hope to break Russia is futile.

If after the Eastern War of 1853-1865 Russia, as it had been expressed by the Chancellor Gorchakov, began to concentrate, now it is consolidating before our eyes.
Е.Аnanievа. The alignment of the political forces in the Great Britain on the threshold of the elections of 2015
Some unusual parliament elections will be held on the 7-th of May in the United Kingdom. The ones of the 2010 were irregular too: the country having elected the “pending parliament” really opted for the “system of two and a half” incarnated in the coalition government – the first during the period after the World War Two. However this time the spectrum of the political forces has become even more complex: there’s no any politician who could forecast the result of the ekections.

John Lockland. Ideology and geopolitics during the period of two cold wars
The ideology of “open doors” suggests renouncement even of the possibility of political pluralism on the international stage, - the US could feel safe, only if all the other countries are the US. The ideas of spheres of influence or safe zones turn pointless or even unacceptable in the light of tempting fancy that all the states sometime would be ideologically identical.

Ю.Булатов. “Where the Russian flag was risen, it shouldn’t be lowered” Who sold the Russian America and what for
On the 30-th of March of 1867 the Russian Empire signed the Treaty of 1867 selling the Alaska to the USA. The debates of the real motives prompting the Czar's government to make this step still go on in the Russian society. By all the appearances this ancient story shouldn’t cause so animated discussions today. What is the reason of a special bitterness of debates of the kind in the post-Soviet Russia on this stage of its modern history?
