US President Barack Obama revealed the United States' involvement in the Ukrainian crisis from its outset and admitted that the United States "had brokered a deal to transition power in Ukraine."
Lunedì 3 marzo 2014. Le faraoniche Putiniadi sono terminate da otto giorni. Le Olimpiadi più costose della storia: 51 miliardi di dollari. Gli atleti russi han fatto man bassa di medaglie, hanno vinto i Giochi e risposto nel modo migliore alle attese del loro presidente, rinvigorendo coi risultati la propaganda nazionalpatrottica del Cremlino. In Ucraina
Fa sempre male dover ammettere che la nostra parte, quell'Unione Europea alla quale siamo affezionati ed ha garantito decenni di pace e sta...
Europe is facing a challenge from Russia to its very existence. Neither the European leaders nor their citizens are fully aware of this challenge or know how best to deal with it.
Vi propongo l'analisi due video di produzione russa messi in rete durante gli ultimi mesi di crisi in Ucraina. Il primo video è stato rilasciato durante gli attacchi dell'esercito Kiev all'inizio dell'estate quando un crescente movimento nazionalista interno spingeva Putin a intervenire nel Donbas per fermare la carneficina, il secondo è delle ultime settimane e

Conventional wisdom in the West blames the Ukraine crisis on Russian aggression. But this account is wrong: Washington and its European allies actually share most of the responsibility, having spent decades pushing east into Russia's natural sphere of interest.
As the standoff in the eastern Ukraine deteriorates into violence it's up to world powers to step in and calm things down. Despite tough talk from Washington, the US, EU, Russia and Ukraine have managed to reach a framework to peace in Geneva. But will it be enough to avert a civil war? Sophie asks the Russian Foreign minister himself - Sergey Lavrov is on Sophie&Co today.
Since the very beginning of the Ukrainian crisis, many Western commentators have drawn comparisons between the present situation and pre-WWII Europe, as well as between Hitler and Putin. This has largely
Qualche blog fa ammonivo circa il rischio che l'Ucraina potesse trasformarsi in una nuova Jugoslavia. Con rischi abbastanza elevati, stavolta, di deflagrazione generalizzata, trattandosi di un'area al confine fra Russia e Occidente. Gli ultimi episodi dimostrano che si sta scivolando verso una situazione estremamente pericolosa di questo genere. Come prevedibile, la rivolta di piazza Maidan,
The crisis between Russia and Ukraine reveals how dramatically Vladimir Putin's nationalism has changed over the past 14 years. After he came to power in 2000, Putin preferred to refer to people in Russia
The situation in Ukraine remains tense, yet the odds are that it will now stabilise. It is unlikely Russia will invade eastern Ukraine, both because it is unclear whether this was in the plans (if such
Tariq Ali: The US and UK condemn him for Crimea but supported him over the war in Chechnya. Why? Because now he refuses to play ball
The Crimea crisis has focused our attention on the vexed question of Europe's energy supplies. To a great extent Europe depends on Russia for its oil and gas, which gives Vladimir Putin disproportionate
The Ukraine crisis has led many to call on the US to use its growing oil and natural gas production to help Ukraine and Europe wean itself off Russian energy. There's one very big problem with this view, Cobb writes: The US is still a net importer of both oil and natural gas.
If the US could supply Europe with large amounts of fuel, that would reduce the Continent's dependency on Russia while depriving Putin of needed revenues.
The Russian invasion and rapid absorption of the Crimean peninsula might seem like the spark ready to ignite a new Cold War. In fact, given the feeble Western response so far, the more likely outcome is
