Lukoil Becomes Gazprom Neft’s Partner in Joint Venture with Repsol

The Russian energy market is seeing further reshuffles as Western companies quit the country, with domestic firms taking over their assets. Among those Russian companies is Lukoil, a privately run oil producer. Business decisions seem to have a political, rather than a financial background.

CSTO Summit in Yerevan Was Bitter Pill for Putin

CSTO Summit in Yerevan Was Bitter Pill for Putin

The Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) summit in Yerevan ended sourly as Armenia refused to sign a draft declaration due to the absence of a political assessment of Azerbaijan’s aggression against the territorial integrity of Armenia. This is yet another sign of Russia’s loosening grip on former Soviet republics.

Ukraine Says It Will Not Negotiate With Moscow

Ukraine Says It Will Not Negotiate With Moscow

Western media recently reported that the United States exerted growing pressure on Ukraine to enter negotiations with Russia. This narrative is yet gone now. The government in Kyiv has adopted a firm stance on peace talks with Russia. Thus Washington must have revised its policy so far.

The military capabilities among Antarctic claimant states

This research paper thinks about a potential military rivalry for territories in Antarctica. It focuses on the seven states, that have yet asserted territorial claims in Antarctica: Argentina, Chile, Australia, New Zealand, Norway, France and the United Kingdom. The intention is to give a provisional, superficial review about the overall numbers of weapon systems since 2015 in connection with their range and their geographic proximity to Antarctica.

Western Balkans and the War in Ukraine

Western Balkans and the War in Ukraine

A new chapter in the Russia-Ukraine war was a turning point for the security architecture in Europe. Although plainly local and between two states, the war in Ukraine is a proxy war that involves NATO and EU states and the Russian Federation.
