Answer to Professor P. Kelly

Professor Philip Kelly, respected expert in geopolitics, have done an interesting review of Tiberio Graziani's paper published in no. 1/2010 of Italia “Eurasia” journal. In his opinion, world isn't multipolar but still unipolar, Russia isnt' able to involve other continental poles in a common geopolitics of Eurasian safety which exclude Thalassocracy, European Union deserve to be included among hegemonic players more than others, in particular than India, Latin America hasn't an important role in world geopolitics. Here the answer by T. Graziani and D. Scalea.

The war for South Ossetia

The Russian counteroffensive has brought some political advantages to Moscow , though a small deferment in closing the operations might have optimized them. First of all, Saakashvili has been destabilized: he will have to bear responsibility for having set off a conflict they have ruinously lost, even if he will try to politically optimize the “victim” aura. Secondly, the US’ prestige—and secondly EU’s one —has endured remarkable backlashes in the region. Today facts have showed how much the balance of military power in the Caucasus leans undoubtedly towards Moscow. Moscow’s third success lies in putting off Georgia’s admission to the NATO. If Georgia had been a NATO member, today Europe and the US should have either engaged in the third world war or lost their face before the whole world. Reason for which Georgia’s entrance in the NATO has always been dependent on settling the Abkhazian and Ossetian problems. Now more than ever these problems are serious and their possible consequences obvious.

The Economic Crisis of the Western System. A Geopolitical Approach

Concerning the ongoing crisis several analyses have been performed, generally from an economic point of view. In this context, several studies have been produced with the purpose of analysing the impact of the crisis on global economy and on worldwide industrial systems. The results of these studies contribute to finding solutions for the overcoming of the crisis, without loss of power by the western system led by US. Since at the present time a new multipolar system seems to be emerging after the US’s unipolar moment, it is necessary to think about the relation between the different geopolitical postures of the world players and the crisis. Taking into account the different geopolitical strategies of the main global actors (US, EU, Russia, China, India), their different cultural identities and ambitions can help us to define better approaches in order to rebuild (or build) social stability and to find new forms of international cooperation in the conditions of this crisis.

The importance of Russia to Italy

n this perspective Russia, major energy provider, becomes fundamental in the Italian geopolitics. Rome needs to keep friendly commercial relationships with Moscow to preserve the transits of Russian hydrocarbons to our country: therefore it’s easy to explain the choice the ENI made to cooperate with Gazprom, and in particular with the construction of the South Stream gas pipeline, that bypass the unstable western Europe. This factor adds up to the need of a diplomatic counterbalance in the attempt to suggest, without any doubt, Russia as one of the necessary pillars of the Italian foreign policy in the XXI century.
