Yemen occupies a peripheral place in Russian foreign policy for three reasons: lack of serious economic interest, the illusory potential of strengthening the military presence there and recognition of Saudi Arabia’s role in the Yemeni conflict.

In a previous article, “The Coming Epoch of New Coalitions: Possible Scenarios of the Near Future” (Grinin and Korotayev 2011), it was preliminarily demonstrated that the turbulent events of late 2010 and 2011 in the Arab World may well be regarded as a start of the global reconfiguration. The subsequent events have confirmed this supposition. ...

Перспективы балансирования во внешней политике Украины в условиях сближения с региональными интеграционными объединениями
, Политика и общество 2013 № 7 С. 931-941
В статье рассматривается внешняя политика Украины, направленная на сохранение внеблокового статуса между Европейским союзом и Россией. Несмотря на декларируемую заинтересованность в европейской интеграции, практическое поведение Украины в 1990-е ? 2000-е гг. является классическим балансированием между двумя региональными лидерами с целью сохранения суверенитета и удержания внутренней власти. Тем не менее, исследование показало, что перспективы эффективного продолжения ...

The newly minted concept of the “Indo-Pacific Region” (IPR) is generally seen as a response by the United States and its allies to China’s growing influence in strategically important areas of the Pacific and Indian oceans. However, the view of IPR as a single (U.S.-led) anti-Beijing front is simplistic and misleading, obscuring a variety of ...

Дискуссия об интеграционном выборе Украины в последнее десятилетие традиционно основывается на трех общеизвестных тезисах: о безусловной значимости этой страны для региональных группировок, о желании России любыми средствами вовлечь ее в евразийскую интеграцию, а также о ее ключевом месте в отношениях России и ЕС, характеризуемых как «игра с нулевой суммой». Проведенное исследование показало их несоответствие действительности ...
