everyone got out of the course structure of history and humanity is one of the secretary of the french science academy and the woman who predicted the breakup of the soviet union in nineteen seventy eight in her book pickle laps of an empire is here with us today by super bowl. thank you very much my dumbed down course for your time. in your recent book between two walls you talk of russia can we presume from the title that you think russia still hasn't found its place in the walt. since was looking is 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 is what i've been trying to explain is that others saw it in disintegrated russia rushed to europe but as you have did not offer a woman welcome since the 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 and decided to position itself as an asian country it gives a greater priests and influence in the world has been pursuing this policy for more than ten years now and has broad great success as they're 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 reckoned 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 at the flipper will it be there 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. i think that people in 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 you 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 it russia is pursuing its own path but time has shown that georgia for example which is always being say that it wants to save itself for russia that's why it wanted to access nato it feels that russia will dominate georgia again in york i think that'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 you were in russia itself was not ready but there was no you don't believe in russia's imperial ambitions just a right i don't believe it or i'd rather say there was some kind of an astrologer but that's a completely different saying look at what your 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 it for a still russian people and specifical isn't our 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 sky king as well they would fit what are the main areas to europe types of
russian places today. except of course russia has the legacy of this of it here in n.z. and it will be marred by the 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 it another day he said you are free to get out of here many things about fashion of a garden the people for godly subjects is to was dominating under still fear and then got scared of the country or what it was or how or not ability to speak as doggedly with other countries as all this was forgotten it and these new russia was not interested i see it what engine your country are people suspicious of russia i don't know what to say to that boy of the thoughts 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. in there and then you have to
all i feel uncomfortable talking about my president has changed a great deal in he was in love with america it was an example of how to believe a word that he did not know russia has a hunger an origin and hungary it was a factor but the soviet union to a certain extent and even by russia has come a long way to he chose russia's and i agree with him 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. simply because he realized what's right he's a very smart guy really i should not be calling my present a guy well he's a very smart person or chairman he's very active and he thinks something over he got to. understand things correctly and he took a look at the world and has realized a lot of things only two years what you realize trust that russia wasn't
a terrible can tweet 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 dial o'gara 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 position 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 but for what 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 u.s. . is refocusing its foreign policy on asia where of the huge countries that will play the big roles located here in asia or latin america but that's a different question now what is the current state of european asian relations europe is of no interest asia it would view europe as a landmass that tweets used to pacific ocean with russia and europe and not a whole but if a picture there was an alliance then we can say europe reaches the pacific if this is the reason europe needs russia and i'm not sure if russia is europe but europe at the moment needs for russia what i want that. for in one of your interviews you spoke about the role of poland and said it could become a great. between europe and russia what kind of bridge and what are the current
dynamics of russian polish relations machine door 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 he was bringing poland closer to russia before the plane crashed 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 you know poland is a bridge of sorts between russia and europe it's a bridge to russia because it is at the same time a slight it and a european country which could serve for bream's kind who is closer russia and europe holiday russia and ukraine and russia so poland could play a historical role if it in the stance the situation saying well of course so if my
damage on 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 solving i didn't see it as a forecast i looked at the country and saw so many negative and elements but 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 to introduce democracy capitalism it to western europe's a choice to do that or 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 but i don't see any decent u.t. so i think we can become a future it's totty until ignoring the like you know one country yes it was before if somebody asked you to describe more than russian just three what's what would those words be. the frost one would be mighty which it wasn't ten years ago that was a this second important aspect is that modern russian makes 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. wealthy british style. writers.
