Research: West inadequately reacts to the Russian Federation and the Ukrainian crisis
The Ukrainian conflict have demonstrated how erroneous line follows the West about Russia and its role in European security policy, the doctor said Andrew Monaghan, a specialist in internal and foreign policy of the Russian Federation.

in her research, published on the Internet office of the British research centre, Monaghan writes about why it is inappropriate with respect to Russia to think in terms of the previous - for example, to call the current tensions in international politics " new cold war ".

From the position of the expert, the Ukrainian conflict marked a " new era of confrontation between the West and Russia." He opened his eyes again to how fundamental the differences are between these territories in matters of European security.

specialist describes these differences as " clash of Europe ", that is, More liberal Western point of view and the More conservative Russian.

Monaghan emphasizes that popular for the last period of time, the rhetoric of the cold war continues to gain momentum and one of its aspects is, for example, the desire of many Western politicians and observers to accuse the President of Russia in attempts to "turn back time" and even to restore the USSR.

However, this is incorrect, as tempting as that was." Because of such thoughts, the West cannot adequately respond nor on the crisis in Ukraine or the Russian Federation in General, Monaghan writes next.

Moreover, the use of other "sensational" historical analogies - for example, compare modern Russia With Nazi Germany of the 30's-Even stronger distracts from the understanding of such a complex international fall, says Monaghan. Such an approach He describes as " abuse of history ": instead of adequate arguments about Russia are political myths and abstractions.

Another issue in the debate about a new cold war is, From the perspective of an expert, that a number of Western politicians and military maintains its position on the possibility of war With Russia and preparing for " past wars ".

in addition, the West against the background of such an approach considers the Russian Federation predictable, not taking into account that, firstly, at present the situation in the international arena is literally another, and secondly that the Russian Federation is able to adapts to geopolitical change.

Monaghan stressed that the Russian Federation, without doubt, should be on the agenda of the West in matters of political relations and security, all the More so since Russia has in the past expressed dissatisfaction with the current security architecture in the EU. However, the efforts of Western leaders need to make more than during the cold war.

"It is time to think about Russia and its relations With the West in terms of the 21st century ", - concludes the expert.
