Following usual rhetoric, the end of the Cold War replaced the global competition for supremacy of the two great powers and fears of a large-scale nuclear conflict between them with a new era of cooperation and consolidating efforts for enhancing international security. Even so, the acute dialogue of Russia with outside (especially Western) world on too many security issues remains troubled. As it appears now, a permanent source of disaccord constitute the differences of views on local conflicts (whether a militarized crisis like the 2008 Georgia war or a diplomatic one like the 2011 question about what action to take toward Libya and the 2012 row over Syria), as well as sharp tensions over the US/NATO missile defense plans in Europe.
