Annotation of the magazine number 9, September, 2015
Meshkov. А., Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Russia России “Russia – Europe: what’s going to come?”
It looks like the situation in the sphere of European security now is at the lowest point of the trajectory of its development. The today’s problems haven’t arisen just yesterday, but were accumulating for years. It wasn’t the Ukrainian crisis that had been the initial cause of serious cooling of the political climate in Europe. The contradiction reaching their climax in the form of the conflict in the Ukraine have their roots going deep into 1990-s.
Karaganov С. “There no simple decisions” About the prospects of Russian and European relations
They relate the crisis in the relations of Russia and the West to the actions of Russia in the Crimea, in the Donets Basin and in the Ukraine, but its roots lie much deeper and its long-term consequences may be serious too. The situation is fraught with not just a large military collision, which I hope grows less probable, with a political confrontation or a reduction of the economic relations, but with a social and civilized “divorce”.

Rudiger Von Frich. We can make the history
As many-sided it was, - our common history of Russia and Germany, - as too frequently it, unfortunately, led to extremes. Coming up against each other our ancestors rarely put up just the question of power and domination, but quite frequently it was the issue of life and death, of destruction of the opponent.
Terekhov V.For the 60-th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations with the Federal Republic of Germany
In September of 1955, ten years after the end of the war in Europe, were established the diplomatic relations between the Soviet Union and the Federal Republic of Germany. Such a long period of time was necessary for the governments of the two countries to sort out and to determine their attitude towards a great number of the most complicated problems inherited from the history.
THE EDITOR’S-IN-CHIEF COLUMN
Oganessyan А. Killed – weren’t counted up
Today you can hear it quite frequently: “How it might be that such a great democracy as the USA and their not less democratic allies in Europe close their eyes on the mass crimes against civil population in the Donets Basin?” Indeed an attitude like this towards the events in the Ukraine isn’t at all a chance and it has its history.
