Russian experts say Middle East countries should learn to fight the West
A leading researcher of Institute of Problems of International Security of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Alexey Fenenko, draws a conclusion from Vladimir Putin’s speech at the Security Council of Russia that the head of state is preparing for the worst scenario. According to the expert, Russia will see difficult times.
Member of the International Security Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences Alexey Fenenko believes that Russia is unlikely to improve ties with Nato. The North Atlantic Alliance is going to increase its presence in Eastern Europe. The US believes that the Ukrainian crisis will damage Russia's relations with European countries.

While the West does not recognize the results of the Crimean referendum, and the Crimean authorities on the basis of this referendum declared their independence and appealed to Russia for the inclusion as the subject of the Russian Federation, Russian political scientists have come together to summarize the results of this concluded stage of the political confrontation around the peninsula and to outline likely prospects for future developments.Thus, the director of the Center for Political Information, Alexei Mukhin, first drew attention to the fact that in the current political "track", where both Russia and the West happen to be, there are two possible directions for the development of bilateral relations: strengthening of the connections or their break. He also recalled that "in fact there is no opposition of Russia vs. West, as Western countries do not represent a political monolith." " There is no need to dismiss the current authorities in Kiev, even though now they are in prostration, because they failed to stop the disintegration processes, which , in fact, they themselves had started, and the situation will depend largely on them, too," says Mukhin.
According to researcher from the International Security Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences Alexey Fenenko, the role of Saudi Arabia and Qatar in the Middle East politics is exaggerated. Such a well-promoted myth is favourable for all powers in the region, the expert stresses.
