10.11.2013 - OIL IS A TRIAL FOR US (by Yuri Shafranik, Chairman of the Council of the Union of Oil and Gas Industrialists)

20 years ago, Yuri Shafranik was appointed the Minister of Fuel and Energy of the Russian Federation. He succeeded Viktor Chernomyrdin, who was appointed Prime Minister. Those were the years of drastic structural changes in Russian economy, including the fuel and energy complex (FEC). Those difficult times and current trends in the industry Yuri Shafranik Chairman of the Board of the Oil and Gas Producers of Russia described in an interview to the magazine "the FEC of Russia" .


23.08.2013 - The Drive to Blame Russia

NEW YORK — President Obama’s decision to cancel his September meeting with President Vladimir Putin was heartily welcomed by a broad swath of the American political class. In the view of many American critics of Putin and the Kremlin, it was about time to punish Russia. Were it not for Russia, their argument goes, not only would Edward Snowden now be facing justice in the United States, but President Bashar al-Assad of Syria would have been removed and the civil war ended, Iran would have forsworn its nuclear weapons program, and Ukraine and Georgia would be flourishing democracies solidly anchored in the West.


29.03.2013 - The children of the sexual revolution: who are they? Armen Oganesyan, Editor in Chief, "International Affairs" Magazine

The sexual revolution in Europe has naturally evolved into a homosexual revolution.


23.01.2013 - Sergey Karaganov: A Third “Unfreezing”

The collapse of communism in the 1990s was followed by what is commonly referred to as the “unfreezing” of numerous conflicts that had been “frozen” by structural confrontation between the Soviet Union and the United States, which at that time represented the East and the West. The external limits for activities of states and societies were dictated by the Soviet Union (strictly) and by the United States (somewhat milder), and sometimes by both of them, for example, when they imposed a nuclear nonproliferation policy, acting hand in hand. Yugoslavia was the first to explode. Then a war broke out between Armenia and Azerbaijan, a conflict started in Transdniestria, and Chechnya blew up.


19.11.2012 - “Opposition to Discrimination against Christians in the World as a Contribution to the Development of the Concept of Human Rights” Address of Metropolitan Hilarion, chairman of the Moscow Patriarchate’s Department for External Church Relations, at the session of the United Nations Third Committee (New York, 23 October 2012).

Mr. Chairman: I take the floor at this session as a representative of the Russian Orthodox Church numbering many millions of faithful in different countries. A major task of international institutions, among which the UN plays a leading role, is the protection of human rights in various regions of the world.


17.10.2012 - Russia in the World of Ideas and Images

Persistent downgrading of a country eventually produces a persistent image of a loser nation among its citizens – with the ensuing costs paid by future generations.


03.10.2012 - Pussy Riot in Post-Culture Context

The ado about Pussy Riot seems to be subsiding now that the story has led to a court verdict. Speaking in Finland, Russian diplomacy chief S. Lavrov warned the media against hysteria over the case and urged respect for the legitimate judicial decision, while in Russia the Orthodox Church called for clemency towards the offenders. The call was appropriately timed as the besieged church hierarchy refrained from influencing the situation ahead of the ruling. Believers across the country do worry that the soft sentence might leave churches vulnerable to another round of vandalism.
