CONFLICTOLOGY

Streltsov D., Russian approach to territorial disputes in East Asia   

The attitude and policy of Russia toward territorial and border disputes in East Asia arouse a great interest.

Enuibaryan R., Many faces of democracy: it’s time tore-evaluate values    

Born by European civilization and confirmed by Christian one, form an individual’s participation in state political organization in process of development of the humanity had been transforming itself, lost some traces and acquired some other one.
