“What is happening in the United States has created a significant layer of politicians who made their career on anti-Trump, ant-Russian positions. I do not expect those particular people to change their mind anytime soon. In my view, two election cycles will have to occur in the United States to bring a new thinking. Especially taking into account that the majority of those in Congress do not care too much about Russia, and they do not know too much about Russia”, – Amb. Sergey Kislyak, First Deputy Chairperson, Committee on Foreign Affairs, Council of the Federation.


“Russia’s position can be seen as equally close or equi-distant from all of the countries in the Arabia. Russia is interested in maintaining quite well-balanced relations with all the actors in this new drama. I believe that our position is close to the position of the U.S. and Europe, because no one wants destabilization in the Middle East which could lead to catastrophic results», — Vitaly Naumkin, President of Institute of Oriental Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences. 


“So, is it true that the Trump victory has opened up a window of opportunity for Russia’s relations with the United States? Not quite. Firstly, the window is so narrow that it looks more like a cat flap. Secondly, it’s been left ajar for a while rather than being thrown wide open. The moment that we are observing now should best be defined as “the flap of opportunity”. Today is the most appropriate time to discuss the real opportunities for real improvement of strategic relations.” – Dr. Vladimir A. Orlov, Founder & Special Advisor of the PIR Center, the Head of the Center for Global Trends and International Organizations at the Diplomatic Academy of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation.

I am going to tell just a few words on Syria and the heart of the Middle East. The Middle East is seated on three pillars - Egypt, Iraq and Syria - and all these three countries are now in a quite difficult situation regarding the institutions of the states. Just look at the map to understand how th...

When you look at the title of this presentation, actually, there were two ways of pronouncing it. One is what I chose in the beginning: Europe minus Russia, but minus also, when you put it in math, is also a dash. Dash normally connects Europe and Russia. Minus disconnects Europe from Russia and Rus...
