“Biden will pose new challenges to the Russian Federation, but not something completely different from his predecessor. He will be constrained by many domestic factors, by the balance of powers inside the United States. And most importantly, Biden is likely to be a weak president, not a strong president. As we know from history, you need to be a very strong president if you really want to fix relations with Moscow”, – Andrey Kortunov, Director General of the Russian International Affairs Council (RIAC).


“Prof. Naumkin is not only an academic and a key Russian expert on the Middle East, but he has also a deep practical insight into Russian interests in the region. This particular experience makes his presentation at once unique and very valuable. We highly appreciate the idea to make the Swiss Embassy the venue for this special meeting of the Trialogue Club International.”, - Col. Bruno Russi, Swiss Defense Attaché and Dean of the Defense Attachés Corps in Moscow.


“We really have quite serious problems in arms control. Nothing similar happened before. The trend we seemed to notice in the 1990s has become history. In Russia, we had illusions that we could have normal partnership dialogue with Western countries. On our part, we have done practically everything possible for this dialogue,” - Vladimir Yermakov, Director of the Department for Nonproliferation and Arms Control of the Russian MFA.

I am going to tell just a few words on Syria and the heart of the Middle East. The Middle East is seated on three pillars - Egypt, Iraq and Syria - and all these three countries are now in a quite difficult situation regarding the institutions of the states. Just look at the map to understand how th...

When you look at the title of this presentation, actually, there were two ways of pronouncing it. One is what I chose in the beginning: Europe minus Russia, but minus also, when you put it in math, is also a dash. Dash normally connects Europe and Russia. Minus disconnects Europe from Russia and Rus...
