In the last decade, Russia’s actions showed clear signs of her aspirations to re-assert itself as the major counterpart of the United States. Russia has ‘revamped its military, invaded two neighbouring countries, intervened on behalf of President Assad in Syria, and threatened NATO with nuclear saber-rattling, aerial incursions, and military exercises.’(RAND Corporation, 2016) Particularly since the 2014 invasion of Ukraine the relationship between the United States and Russia resembles that of post-Cold War. ...Read more

The “Trump Train” (once a Twitter hashtag and then a successful metaphor of the assertive, and to date unstoppable, reform wind blown by Donald Trump) is finally arrived at the White House. But this is very likely not the final destination of its journey. The Trump Train could soon arrive in Europe....Read more

Last week, following the results of Russia’s parliamentary election, Russian media run a story suggesting that the Kremlin is planning to implement far-reaching changes to the country’s intelligence apparatus. According to the Moscow-based daily Kommersant, the administration of President Vladimir Putin is considering merging Russia’s two major intelligence and counterterrorism agencies into one. Specifically, the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service, or SVR, will merge with the FSB, the Federal Security Service, according to Kommersant. The merger will create a new amalgamated intelligence agency that will be named “Ministry of State Security”, or MGB, in Russian. The last time this title was used was from 1946 to 1953, during the last years of the reign of Soviet Premier Joseph Stalin. It was one of several agencies that were eventually combined to form the Soviet KGB in 1954. Read more

The political elite considered this activity to be degrading and comparable to dirty police work..... Read more

Overcoming the huge definition problems about them, today's' terrorists are, unquestionably, one facet of our society's enemies. Their efficiency varies, but it is included in the duties of society's defence mechanisms to evaluate it proactively and decisively.
At the moment, as the generally accepted agreement about the growth of this "industry" (to use one of the most provocative –but for sure most labelling- approaches about terrorism) shows, the aforementioned society's mechanisms have been at fault in not a few cases....Read more

IT law or cyber law or internet law, is evolving in giant steps. On its way, it has many challenges to meet and a lot of burdens to cope with. Being a part of international law, it is though specific in its nature, mode of implementation and protection. While the classic international law deals with classic state territories, state jurisdictions, with a clear distinction between national laws, the IT law is uncertain about the state jurisdiction, earthbound borders, rules and proceedings regarding any dispute arising on internet.
