russia can we presume from the title that you think russia still hasn't found its place in the walt. sims was not exactly what the book says is that russia has made these kind of decision but over the past ten years it's been pursuing two different paths rather than one what i've been trying to explain is that after the soviet union disintegrated russia rushed to europe but as you have did not offer a warm welcome system beginning of this century or russia's foreign policy has been focusing on two directions rather than on one on the one hand and fall courses on the west on the other hand because it was joe graphical position has decided to position itself as an asian country it gives it greater priests and influence in the world has been pursuing this policy for more than ten years now and has broad great success as out of the twentieth century russia's international reputation
around the world was not very good but now after the past decade it's obvious that it's been a wreck and voters it's a big change russia has taken a very important step forward and in my pin in this process is irreversible russia has become a world power for voice. in your introduction you raise the question of whether russia should be feared do you mean that the imperial russia and then the soviet union which. europe used to be afraid of are still alive. to think that gave up on the not only in europe the collapse of the soviet union was not anticipated it happened overnight many countries primarily those who are to solve it influence the eastern european countries and countries that used to be part of the soviet union but are now into balance states did not understand russia and are afraid of it as eastern european countries have become e.u.
members they have to show this years and pass them on to the new saying that russia used to be an empire so why should it seize being an empire and can't be trusted now that is imperial past has been forgotten by now people have already understood that russia is missing its own dr but time has shown that georgia for example which has always been saying that it wants to save itself from russia that's why it wanted to access nato it feels that russia will dominate georgia again and look i think it's a few years originate from some kind of misunderstanding of the breakup of the soviet union because it was so sudden no one could adjust themselves to immediately all the european and pires have collapsed but they collapsed after decades of preparation even russia itself was not ready but there was no you don't believe in russia's imperial ambitions to write i don't believe it or i'd rather say there was
some kind of an astrologer but that's a completely different saying ok what country can forget overnight that it's used to be a powerful empire but russia has common sense despite the fact that some russians say used to be so good and that is a shame is forgotten about for a still russian people and specifical is those in power have common sense and they're to stand too well that it's over and it's russia's future is not to be an empire but rather to build up its reputation and via satellite our rather than. by force. this will be as well there is for a lot of the main as to you are types of russian places today. in atlantic city because russia has the legacy of this of it here in n.c. and it will be marred by this stigma for a long time i come from a country in which the collapse of the empire was a difficult one but bloodshed in the fifty's and sixty's yeltsin sad to take as much and as you can swallow and another day he said you're free get out of here
many things about fashion haven't gotten the people for godly some axes to was dominating under still fear and then got scared of the country or what it was or how or not their ability to speak as bagnoli was early gunter's all this was forgotten it and these new russia was not interested i see it what her engine your country our people suspicious of russia i don't know what to say to that or the thoughts of her go to some of your current president nicolas sarkozy said in his election campaign it's better to shake hands with than with putin who would you shake hands with but. then you have to all i feel uncomfortable talking about my president has changed a great deal in he was in love with america was an example of where a believer were that he did not know russia has a hunger and origin and hunger and it was a factor but the soviet union to a certain extent and even by russia this is come
a long way he chose russia and i agree with him but it's in europe's interests and in france's interests for cross has always had its interest in relations with russia. and why has the course changed what is these changes related to prospect of an answer simply because he realized what's right he's a very smart guy really i should not be calling my president a guy well he's a very smart person or chairman he's very active and he thinks something over he goes to. understand things correctly and he took a look at the world and has realized a lot of things only two years but you're realize trust that russia wasn't a terrible country it was a country to be spoken to not let the georgian answer didn't help him to he stablished close relations with the russian president and prime minister he realized the dialo ghar european country is the most important thing to build
relations with russia he also realized russia was a european country or at least he didn't understand very well it for us he also realized that europe was no longer strong it was falling out of the history of global relations always going to fall out of it was to be completely cv it from russia his current possession which i think is very smart is not the trash should be part of europe russia is too vast for europe it would not adapt what we need he thinks is a model for all asians. why does europe yet russia now. or russia is needed because the entire history of international relations is moving away from europe it's played out in asia even the us city country is refocusing its foreign policy on asia so you're aware of the huge countries that will play the big roles loki's here in asia or latin america but that's a different question now what's the current state of european asian relations
europe is of no interest asia view europe as a landmass the tree choose the pacific ocean with russia and europe are not a whole but if you picture them as an alliance then we can say europe reaches the pacific this is the reason europe flees russia and i'm not sure russian is europe but europe at the moment needs for russia what i want that i ask. for in one of your interviews you spoke about the role of poland and said it could become a break. between europe and russia what kind of bridge and what are the current dynamics of russian polish relations a passing thought until very recently it seemed like a great idea but now represent between russia and poland has actually happened i think however that some politicians use smart politicians for soldiers even prime minister donald to ski he was bringing poland closer to russia before the plane
crash the fall and has always been the final frontier of europe russia began after that france here is also in close contact with ukraine the question of ukraine is very delicate given it e.u. accession without exception russia would upset russian europe with poland is a bridge of sorts between russia and europe it's a bridge to russia because it is at the same time a slab it and a european country which could serve for bream's kind who is closer russia and europe hold it russia and ukraine and russia so poland could play a historical role if it understands the situation send us well of course so if my dominant course at one point you predicted the collapse of the soviet union any new forecasts for more than russia. that's the fear no i don't email forgot it's just what i was writing about the soviet union i didn't even see it as
a forecast i looked again to eat and saw so many negative and elements that i couldn't help but ask myself how long will it last i don't make forecasts as a rule historian if i look at the past and try to figure out what's happening in the present i think russia has come a long way over the past twenty years it is having some difficulties as countries do it's not easy it is reduce democracy capitalism it to western europe's a choice to do that or you do. it within twenty years isn't so easy that i think russia is following the path he chose in one thousand nine hundred ninety one there have been ups and downs and i don't see any discontinued so i think we can be calm about trashes future it starting until ignoring them or like you know one country as it was before if somebody asked you to describe more than russian just three words what would those words be. the frost line would be mighty which it wasn't ten
years ago and then there's a this second important aspect is that modern russia make small time nationality actually work multiple nationalities was what killed to solve it you know. that it . would be dynamic. by the time time goes thank you very much thank you. children dow c.e.o. eight thousand by the end of elementary school five hundred sauza violent acts by the age of eighteen. to television shows to video games to children. twenty four hour news channels is now seen every day simulate
