13 January 2016

In this new, very complicated international reality, Russia, as it can be seen already now, has a special role. Today, it is impossible to solve any serious geopolitical problem without it, Professor of MGIMO and member of the Gorchakov Fund’s Club of Friends Yelena Ponomareva writes for an electronic publication of Strategic Culture Foundation.
