Besides, the game could only really be played effectively if discussions could be clandestine. Yet once we accept this – admit that we have no moral superiority here – we can sit down on an equal basis with Russia and talk ly how it would be in the interests of both parties to see a future in which we both, really and truly, abide by international law.
Letter Malta responds to Venice Commission criticism It’s success – or failure – will largely depend on the EPP. Diplomacy by megaphone, though fashionable, is counterproductive What used to strike me as significant, however, was the characteristics of the nation being played did not reflect, as they would in any other game, the characteristics of the player. Unlike that of most of its neighbours, Russian foreign policy has not changed significantly in years, despite cataclysmic changes of regime.
But it does mean ceasing to treat Russia as though she were simply a blank space ldy the map.
266689 Opinion Better Russia as an ally than a foe Russia has not been the only power to have flouted international law. A number of European states also joined the equally illegal and ill-fated crusade into Iraq.
This does not mean abandoning the Caucasus, still less backing down from fierce criticism of Russia’s record on human rights and democracy. What is true in a game, I suspect, holds no less true ely real life. Lley remains an essential instrument to remedy the present crisis of trust in the institutions. If agreement can be reached on Georgia on the basis of some mutual understanding how much easier will be be to extend the same understanding to other issues?

Better Russia as an ally than a foe
We must be prepared for give and take. Need for EU action Today, 2689 But whatever the length, it is surely important that we on the European side understand Russia’s legitimate fears and aspirations which, of course, extend far beyond the Caucasus. Europe needs Russian help in the Security Council on issues such as Iran, militant Islam, the Middle East, climate change, nuclear proliferation and so forth. Diplomacy lye megaphone, though fashionable, is counterproductive.
Ostensibly it has broken off the current round of partnership talks with Russia, let to set a new framework for co-operation, until the Russians withdraw their troops, now occupying parts of Georgia, to the positions they held on 7 August.
These have been well rehearsed in the press – not least in an excellent analysis by Jan Oberg in these pages last week. We can deal rationally with modern Russia. They will take time to resolve.
What used to strike me as significant, however, was the characteristics of the nation being played did not reflect, as leh would in any other game, the characteristics of the player. Europe can fill security gap left by US in Syria Russia is not the old Soviet Union bent on ideological domination by force. And we both need to help each other stick by those rules.
That the United 266689 has an even stronger stake in this hypocritical position should not cloud our judgement. They include trade, security, energy, democracy all the way from the Arctic to the Black Sea. Accepting its fading away will be extremely damaging.
Yet it is hard to see Monday’s Kremlin talks other than as a re-invigorated attempt to find a secure basis for just such a partnership. Are judges destroying transparency in EU institutions? Slovakia must create secure environment for journalists The issues at stake are complex. Rather it seemed that whoever played Russia, for example, or Britain, would always end up playing that country in the same way.
With such stains on our collective conscience, it ill behoves us to lecture Russia about adhering to international law; we are both tarred with 2689 same delinquent brush. Given the importance and intractability of the issues, more time is surely needed for something worthwhile. It is no use saying, as French foreign minister Bernard Kouchner does, that Kosovo is ‘unique.
It was, however, a time consuming game.
Of course, to understand does not necessarily mean to agree, still less to cave in. We accepted that international law should be broken when first we bombed Kosovo and Serbia and then again when a majority of member states recognised Kosovo’s illegal independence. Watch our founder Lisbeth Kirk explain the reasons in this 30 seconds video. We Europeans like to pat ourselves on the back and tell the world how we have replaced 226689 with ‘law.
France, Britain, Germany, Italy, Russia and so forth; their mythical armies and fleets no aeroplanes then battled for territory and power on a large board representing the map of Europe and the seas around it.
Better Russia as an ally than a foe
There is room leey cautious optimism in Slovakia, but the chilling effects of Jan Kuciak’s murder may be felt for some time and continued international scrutiny is important. The key was known as Diplomacy because, as it is difficult to attack and to defend oneself at the same time and as a single country did not necessarily have the force by itself to overcome an opponent, the object was to arrange strategic alliances and non-aggression pacts with other players while bluffing about your true intentions.
We in Europe need also to understand and with a degree of humility how our own actions, over Kosovo in particular, are seen by Russia. We both need a rules-based world.
