Budennyy A. - Formation of a New Strategic Concept of the Allies Towards Russia after the Ukrainian Crisis pp. 73-80


Abstract: The subject of the research is a new military course of NATO, the USA, its allies and partners. In the article the author analyzes the dynamics of relations between the USA, NATO and Russia in the period of the Ukrainian crisis in 2014-2016. The crisis has led to a serious deterioration of relationship between Moscow and Brussels, London and Washington since the end of "the cold war" and the revision of international security. Ukraine and Crimea have become a new dividing line between the West and Russia which began to apply different approaches and methods to resolve the crisis. The foreign policy of the West with respect to Russia has become a matter of comprehensive pressure on Russia through diplomatic and economic sanctions, and then unprecedented military strengthening of the military contingent after the "cold war". The authors applied a systematic approach involving a wide range of Social Sciences and the Humanities as a methodological basis of the study in addition to general scientific methods and techniques. The scientific novelty of the study is in consideration of the USA-NATO relations with Russia in the context of the Ukrainian crisis: the relations were at a high level of strategic partnership and then in a few years were actually terminated. The main conclusion of the study is that after more than 25 years of efforts to build a strategic partnership between the United States, NATO and Russia, there began a new phase of geopolitical confrontation of Washington and Brussels with Moscow, which leads to the settlementof the Ukrainian issue and other problems of the modern world, for example, in Syria, but also to general escalation of the military situation.
Nelaeva G.A. - "Women, Peace and Security" Agenda in EU Policy-Making pp. 81-91


Abstract: The European Union, acting as a «normative power Europe», has been actively calling for the women’s rights protection both in its internal and foreign policy. If the EU domestic experience in this area has been extensive, in its foreign policy the EU is a much more reluctant and uneven actor. This is especially true for the women’s rights’ protection in armed conflicts, an area closely linked to security. This article looks at the ways the EU addresses «Women, Peace and Security» Agenda, which emerged in the early 2000s in the UN Security Council. By comparing different legal documents, main spheres of the EU policy-maing in this area are outlined. It is concluded that so far the progress in this area has been uneven, and this agenda is not yet seen as an integral part of EU Member-States policy-making.
