Dear Mr.Vugar, first of all thank you for sharing your time. I would like to be inform your opinions and future analyses about Azerbaijan policy towards the European Union after Vilnus Summit which became a “last hope” for some pos-soviet countries to integrate to Europe.

  1.  How could you estimate the importance and impact of Vilnus Summit in the foreign policy of Azerbaijan Republic?

 The Vilnius  Summit in fact was the important event in context of keeping prominence of the  EU Eastern Partnership Program since policy impacts of this program has not been considered as decent before the indicated summit. Azerbaijan’s participation at the summit was extremely important taking into considering Russian influence on the region mainly on forcing neighboring countries to join to the Customs Union, a Russian new project.

Viktor Yanukoviç ve Ukrayna Muhalefeti



Son günlerde Ukrayna’nın başkenti Kiev’de yaşanan olaylar dünya gündemine bomba gibi düştü. Ukrayna cumhurbaşkanı Viktor Yanukoviç’in, Vilnius’da gerçekleşen Avrupa Birliği liderleri toplantısında anlaşmaları imzalamayı reddetmesi karşısında ABD dâhil tüm Avrupa liderleri şaşkına dönmüş durumdadır. Bu haber üzerine sokaklara dökülen ve çoğu öğrencilerden oluşan eylemciler ilk günlerde başkanın kararını boykot etseler de eylemin büyümesiyle talepler de büyümüş bulunmaktadır. Artık protestocular Viktor Yanukoviç’in görevden gitmesi, sitifa etmesi talepleriyle sokaklara dökülmektedir.

Vilnius zirve görüşmelerinin sona ermesinin ardından birçok Avrupa lideri Rusya cumhurbaşkanı Vladimir Putin’i,  Kiev’e ekonomik ve siyasi baskılar yapmakta suçlayarak bunun siyasi ahlaka ters düştüğünü belirtmiştir. Avrupa Birliği başkanı Herman van Rompuy basına yaptığı açıklamada “Uluslararası ilişkiler sisteminin 21. yüzyılda yürümesi gerektiği gibi yürüyemediğini, bunun sebebinin de Rusya’nın bağımsız ülkelerin iç meselelerine karışarak çeşitli baskılar yapması ile alakalı olduğunu” belirtmiştir.

 Original publication

Непримиримая позиция основных игроков региона относительно Сирийской проблемы и гражданская междоусобица уже унесла жизни  более ста тысяч мирных жителей. Проблема стоит остро, и поэтому в последние дни на мировой арене намечаются существенные изменения политического вектора в отношении данного конфликта. 

Сначала неясная позиция США по Сирийскому вопросу стала причиной критики со стороны стран ЕС и союзников. Под давлением со стороны союзников, и особенно со стороны Израиля, президент Барак Обама на днях сделал официальное заявление о поддержке вооруженных сил оппозиции. Но важнее всего то, что  глава США наконец-то принял решение о поставках вооружений Свободной Армии Сирии. Oxumağa davam et Сирийский Конфликт Или Дипломатия “С-300”
