Disagreements between Russia and the United States on selected issues in international politics, and on the Syrian Arab Republic, explains the very different understanding of sovereignty, Bloomberg columnist Leonid bershidskiy.
According to him, Russia interprets this concept in the classical, traditional sense, which emerged at the signing of the peace of Westphalia in 1648." Under this agreement the States have every right to their territories, and no outside players are allowed to intrude, " reminds the bershidskiy. The U.S. and European countries have a different, "post-modern" concept: "If the regime is doing harm to its citizens, the permissible interference ".
"This conflict between 2 points of view and then floats to the surface, and today 2 hot spots are the Syrian Arab Republic and Ukraine," writes the bershidskiy.
in 2005 the main Assembly of the UN adopted a resolution recognizing the so-called " responsibility to protect ". It gives an opportunity for the international community to take measures to protect the inhabitants of some other country from the regime, conducting ethnic cleansing or commit war lawlessness. However, this concept almost immediately aroused the objections of Russia and China, said Bloomberg columnist.
