Sergey Karaganov is Professor Emeritus at the National Research University - Higher School of Economics in Moscow, an Academic Supervisor at the Faculty of World Economy and International Affairs, and Honorary Chairman of the Presidium of the Council on Foreign and Defense Policy. This essay draws extensively on a two-part article, originally published by Russia in Global Affairs. This version has been edited and modified with the author’s permission.
It is clear that the Anglo-Saxon industrial-military-media complex, with the help of its vassals, intends to preserve its global hegemony and its colonialist conquests at all costs. The Hegemon cannot accept the paradigm shift of an emerging Multipolar World. Any discussion of peace, diplomacy or negotiations regarding the wars it has started is out of the question. Western populations, whose minds are contaminated with neoliberalism and Russophobia, are currently terrified of an "imminent Russian invasion"… Mass delirium is preventing REASON from returning to the West. How can the rest of the world cope with this madness? And what can the rest of the world hope for?
Why is even speaking of negotiations with Ukraine dangerous for us? Who should we talk with and on what terms? Who is better―Trump or Biden? Why is Europe worse than America? Will the United States remain a great power and how many such powers will there be when the unipolar system collapses? Why are we hated not only by the Western elites but also by a significant number of people in their countries? Is there a way to ward off civil strife in the world that is breaking free from Western oppression? What are the real goals of the special military operation (SMO)? Do we need Central and Western Ukraine? How can the use of nuclear weapons save the world from World War III? Sergei Karaganov, Honorary Chairman of the Presidium of the Council on Foreign and Defense Policy, and Academic Supervisor at the HSE Faculty of World Economy and International Affairs speaks with Argumenty Nedeli Editor-in-Chief Andrei Uglanov on this and many other topics.
My previous article discussed the unprecedentedly dangerous situation in which we now find ourselves (Karaganov, 2024). In this article, I outline the new policies and priorities that Russia, as I believe, should adopt, building upon Russia’s National Security Strategy (2021) and especially its Foreign Policy Concept (2023).
When in the late 2000s I and a group of my young colleagues started working on  a project of Russia’s turn to the East (the idea was also vigorously proposed at the same time by future Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and his team), it implied the need to develop and use the advantages of the whole of Siberia and the Urals―a single historical, economic, and human region. However, it worked out differently: Turn 1 towards Asia and its markets was administratively executed mainly through Pacific Siberia, with the Arctic added to it later.

I have long been watching the world inexorably moving towards a wave of military conflicts threatening to develop into a third world thermonuclear war that can in all likelihood destroy human civilization. This prognosis was one of the main reasons why I published a series of articles about why it is necessary to restore the credibility of nuclear deterrence, which kept the world safe for more than fifty years.
