What would happen to European Union after the British election and overwhelming victory of David Cameron’s Conservative party? Carl Bildt wrote recently an article on ‘Project Syndicate’ ( May 9, 015 ) in which he began his brilliant analysis with the phrase: “The next 18-24 months are likely to decide the shape of Europe for decades to come, and the United Kingdom has now started the clock on that process.”

V-Day , the celebration of the victory over Nazi Germany during the World War II was an occasion to evidence the rift between the West and Russia. The invitations extended by Russia to the heads of states and governments of the West to attend the military parade in Moscow were declined and the argument put forward for doing is the best summarized by Donald Tusk, the president  of the European Council: “A presence at the military parade, hand-in-hand with today’s aggressors and a person using weapons against civilians in eastern Ukraine?

Summitul de la Riga – dezamăgire sau așteptări prea mari?

Evenimentul are loc într-un context internațional tensionat și ca și acum doi ani, (înaite de summitul de la Vilnius) analiștii și comentatorii se întrec în critici la adresa declarației care urmează a fi semnată. Dacă în 2013 reproșurile aduse erau legate de nesemnarea Acordului de Asociere cu Ucraina, anul acesta principala nemulțumire este legată de lipsa vreunei referiri în declarața Summitului de la Riga față de o posibilă perspectivă de aderare a Moldovei, Ucrainei sau Georgiei la Uniunea Europeană. Desigur, mulți analiști s-au grăbit să pună această reținere a UE pe seama intimidărilor venite din partea Rusiei și a lipsei de coerență a politicii externe europene.

On the eve of the British elections, an entry on the blog of Julian Lindley-French is very useful to be red by those concerned by the changes in the ways of doing politics today.

The sides ( P5+1+ European Union  and Iran ) agreed on the new deadline: June 30 , so any “gaps” between the two sides’ positions  should be filled up till that date. “However, given that the framework agreement reached this month is actually a mirage, it seems rather unlikely that the two sides will sign off on the final deal in June – or even later this year” –assessed Rachman.
