1351866805_tmp_Cover_SI_N3-4.jpgMOSCOW, 2 NOVEMBER. PIR PRESS New issue of Security Index journal №3-4 (102-103), Fall-Winter 2012 (Russian edition) is out in print.

«The intriguing plot around the future host of the White House for the next several years is unveiling right now – and the outcome is not clear yet neither for myself, nor for our reviewers Dmitry Evstafiev и Yury Fedorov, who have devoted a number of pages to the results of the Washington pre-election fight, nor for our polemists Christopher Ford and Thomas Graham who observe the developments of the campaign from the inside and express support their candidates — Ford to Romney, Graham to Obama», — writes Vladimir Orlov, the editor-in-chief of Security Index journal in his editorial.

Also in this issue:

  • Internal balance of power in Uzbekistan is analyzed by Yury Fedorov who claims that due to the lack of adequate mechanisms of power succession the situation in the country has become worrying – and not only for the country itself, but also for the whole region where stability largely depends on situation in Uzbekistan.
  • Tensions in Belarus are not any smaller, according to Andrey Suzdaltsev. The author argues that last year’s economic crisis became the litmus test which showed the outbreak of crisis in other spheres of Belarusian society.
  • The commentary by Pavel Luzin is devoted to Russia’s policy in outer space and provides a picture of problems and potential use of outer space activities for achieving Russia’s national political goals.
  • Vladimir Dvorkin elaborates on the objective necessity to count on contemporary non-nuclear weapons of high precision as opposed to convenient but inadequate to reality reliance on nuclear weapons in Russian foreign policy.
