The Russian Empire's Last Battle is an impressive international exhibition sited at the State Historical Museum to commemorate the World War I centennial and appears to be a highlight in the series of events dedicated to the

President Putin having toured four Latin American countries almost a month ago, the visits appear to stay on the top lines of the international agenda as, at the moment, Russia is sealing agricultural supply deals with Latin America to neutralize the West's “collective” sanctions and takes steps to generally boost the cooperation with the region. The Russian president's talks in Cuba, Nicaragua, Argentine, and Brazil reflect an initiative of unprecedented intensity that Moscow is launching to achieve deeper engagement with the region.

A conference on peace and security in Iraq attended by foreign ministers from about 30 countries has opened in Paris. The participants include top officials from countries of the region, such as Iraq (President Fuad Masum and Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari), and representatives of states that are cooperating with Iraq and other states of the Middle East and North Africa in combating the terrorist threat. We have drawn the attention of the participants to the fact that we have been talking for a long time about terrorist manifestations that have become markedly more frequent in the Middle East and North Africa after the Arab Spring, when the aim of overthrowing regimes was raised above the common goal of preventing the spread of the terrorist threat. We have done this not for the sake of allocating guilt, but only in order for the world community to fully consider the lessons of the past in planning future actions. It is essential to realise that there should be no double standards in the fight against terrorism. There are no "good" and "bad" terrorists. It is necessary to be consistent and not to make one’s own priorities more important than the common goal of fighting terrorism.

The record of Slovakia's Rusyns seems to occupy a modest niche within the general framework of the history of Rusyns of Transcarpathia or Hungary, which is explainable considering that for centuries both Transcarpathia (also known as Uhorská Rus) and Slovakia used to belong to Hungary and, therefore, the country held sway in the Rusyn affairs. There is no reason to overlook the dramatic, albeit local theme of the Rusyns of Slovakia whose existence over various epochs was rich in inspiring developments and bitter disappointments. All of the milestones of the past of Slovakia's Rusyns are impossible to mention is a brief paper, and what follows is essentially an attempt at an overview of the important part of the West-Russian history reflected in the story of Slovakia's Rusyns.

DURING his 40-minute-long address to the UN General Assembly, President Obama sounded less like a president and more like a prophet" or a preacher with a mission to reveal the truth about the world to mankind. The host is expected to be restrained, especially in view of the realities of the day. This time, the host pushed aside all rules to confirm the old truth that weaker positions are defended by stronger rhetoric. It seems that time has come for the UN Security Council and General Assembly to revise the tradition of long introductory speeches. Indeed, people who represent the world community are exposed to endless bragging and all sorts of opinions voiced by the leader of one, even if the most influential, country.
