Bosnia: Young people with the courage to stay

Two decades after the war that tore their country apart, citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina are still hoping to join the European Union. It’s a dream that some don’t wait for, as several thousands flee to the West in hope of a better life. While others, less conformist, choose to stay in order to rebuild what has been lost.

Is Vladimir Putin pro-American?

The re-election of Vladimir Putin as president of the Russian Federation in March has been negatively reported in the United States. Yet, what many forget is that Putin can be seen as the most pro-American leader in Russian history. This is not an ironic statement. In the last 18 years, Putin has done more for the US and NATO than any other Russian politician or leader.

Rotterdam Plus: Where has the investigation gone?

Almost a year ago the National Anticorruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) opened an investigation into the Rotterdam Plus formula – a method used to calculate the prices of coal. It seems quite likely that the escalation of the Rotterdam Plus topic in the media was made in the interests of politicians and big industrial electricity consumers.

Hungarian general elections: What is at stake?

Fidesz will start its next term in a context that may require a more flexible and cooperative approach. A few days before the parliamentary elections, a European repositioning of Hungary is quite possible. It is even desirable: just as Hungary cannot do without Europe, Europe cannot do without Hungary.

Making sense of Ukraine’s political competition

There are only three real parties in Ukraine: the party of the Past, the party of the Present, and the party of the Future. They are cross-factional and their membership is determined by values, rather than partisan identification.

How to clean up Russian politics

The reality of a one-person autocracy - like in Russia - is that there is no alternative political activity, besides an armed attempt at overthrow, in which the citizens can engage. But to participate in any public political act, in the eyes of those who do not understand, is to cooperate with the regime. But what other choice Russians have?

In the wake of post-Atlanticism

In a chain of political reactions, Russia acts as a protective fence to China, hindering the US rebalancing strategy against China while the European security structure is challenged by Russia. In this geopolitical game, the western position must refocus on practical co-operation and extended dialogue with the Central Asian region since geographically, Central Asia is divided between Russia and China. Currently, institutional outreach of the EU and NATO is almost non-existent there.

How the trash business is poisoning Russia

On March 21st a local court in the Russian town of Volokolamsk ruled to keep a dump producing unbearable smell open. Just on the next day dozens of children were taken to the hospital. No measures have been taken to protect the health of people and the environment.

To reunite Ukraine, Kyiv must overcome its own prejudices

Russia’s aggression has divided Ukrainians physically and mentally. But the deepest rift is not between “pro-Russians” and “pro-Ukrainians”. It is between those who portray the war as an integral part of nation building for Ukraine and those for whom nation building is moot as long as the war grinds on.
