Are the world democracy and its liberal order being fundamentally and irreversibly challenged and who might become a major beneficiary of this global shift?

What should be the response of the United States, Germany and the European Union to the new international realities?

What goals of Russia’s hybrid warfare against the West can be envisaged in the nearest perspective?

Should the West finally discover and accept Ukraine on its mental, cultural, geopolitical and security maps?

How the big international picture looks from Ukraine’s perspective?
