Annotation of magazine number 1, January, 2017
The man who dominated the mind of millions of people in many countries for more than a half of a century has left this world. A politician that influenced the world history process of the second half of the 20-th century. He outlived several Presidents of the USA and General Secretaries of the CPSU who even can’t be compared with him by the place they occupied in the history. You might not like him, but he can’t be recognized!

Sayamov Y., Project of the International University in Rome

Ossipov Е., Crisis of the French socialism
Benoît Hamon has won the second round of the primaries of the French left wing and now he is the candidate for the Presidency from the Socialist Party. His victory is unexpected and even sensational.
Fortunately or unfortunately the today’s post-imperial and post-Soviet Russia has just begun with its self-determination. It’s rather difficult for the country existing in its contemporary hypostasis only for a quarter of a century to form a clear and convincing message to send “urbi et orbi” about its essence and how to implement it best in the surrounding world.
Rybas S., Rybas Е., Notes on the February Revolution
What was the Russian Empire in the beginning of the 20-th century? A great power rivaling with other great powers, but all the same – not the most industrially and financially developed one, with its people far from being the most educated and wealthy, with its elite already disrupted. Butiteconomicpotentialwasenormous. Cultural and scientific achievements were indisputable, enterprising groups – passionate, intellectuals – unselfish, in opposition to the Crown power and politically active.
