    West absent as Russia marks Victory Day

    On 9 May, Russians celebrate the 70th anniversary of victory over Nazi Germany in 1945. The leaders of the Soviet Union’s allies in that conflict, Great Britain and the US, will not be present.

    The US-Russian Space Station Mission is a Study in Cooperation

    As space becomes increasingly militarised, it will become crucial for states to coordinate extra-terrestrial activities.

    Moscow Readying Neo-Cossacks of Belarus for Use Against Lukashenka

    Moscow has had little or no success in mobilizing ethnic Russians as a whole in Belarus against the current government in Minsk: the local Russian community, in almost all cases, blends easily with the Belarusian majority.

    Is NATO Ready for Putin?

    Vladimir Putin has challenged the United States and its allies over the past year. The annexation of Crimea and then the intervention in Ukraine have been very difficult as Russia has far more at stake in these places than does the North Atlantic Treaty Organization [NATO].

    France to Refund Russia $1.2 billion for Non-Delivery of Mistral Helicopter Carriers

    Russia’s March 17, 2014, annexation of Crimea plunged Russian-Western relations to their lowest level since the Cold War.
