After having finalized his mandate as President of the European Commission, Romano Prodi has remained a very busy man internationally, rather active and far from the temptation to retire to a life made of well paid conferences and honorary presidencies of rococo thinks thanks around the world.

Instead, he has been very active on the front line, accepting a number of operational assignments, such as the prestigious but also delicate and politically risky presidency of the United Nations – African Union permanent working group.  Often rumored for a major political come back in Italy, where he has been twice Prime Minister, in 2013 he has missed for very few votes in the Parliament the Presidency of the Italian Republic, despite having a large consensus in the country – and is considered today to be one of the main strategists and advisers to the new Italian Prime Minister, the 37 years old Mr. Renzi.

I would like to offer a key of understanding in a wider international context of the Ukrainian crisis that has so far provoked a river of words in the West - more often comments than explanations - on what was happening first in Kiev and then in Crimea.

 

Apart from the warmongering rhetoric the only real War that we were witnessing until now is the one between the competing proposals and initiatives of Aid to Ukraine coming from Russia, European Union and USA respectively.

 

This phenomenon shows once again that international relations and power policies among States are progressively and now more than ever before relying on the policies and programmes of Aid and Assistance.

Dear Geoff, It was a genuine pleasure to read your Zona. Indeed, The Stalker disturbs, as do Christian truths. It may come as a shock therapy in that it makes people think of Life Questions. The reflection can produce different outcomes, none of them absolute or comprehensive. Since you invite comments, I dare share with you some ideas that hopefully will address some of the loose ends of your narrative. Your essay is primarily about the impression Andrei  Tarkovsky’s film makes. So, I’ll try to keep to that ground which allows maximum freedom. I will not distinguish between what is subjective or objective, conscious or subconscious or just formative in respect of the film and its director’s design.

In a Moscow supermarket my attention was drawn to a new product on the shelves of cereals - quinoa (la quinoa). And then I remembered that the current year 2013 was declared by the United Nations to be the "International Year of Quinoa." This is a very ancient crop. The Incas cultivated it over three thousand years ago. Also, by the way, they called the fruit of the quinoa "divine seed", which gives people strength.

In the pre-Columbian era in the Andes, it was the second most important staple food after potatoes. When the quinoa plantations bloom, they are painted a golden color. That’s why, the grains from the crop are also called “golden grains”.

Lviv is an ancient city, whose history is inextricably linked with the history of Russia. These days, Lviv is not associated with Russia, but with the Ukrainian nationalist ideology. Many people mistakenly think that Lviv is not only the center, but the epicenter, the main place for nationalist ideas, but that is not correct.

In contrast, in Lviv you can easily hear Russian spoken. Beautiful and monumental, the old quarters attract a lot of tourists, including from the south-east of Ukraine and Russia. Knowledge of the Russian language is a practical necessity for the people of Lviv.

He is called the outstanding Polish composer of the twentieth century, and one of the most important to have created work after Chopin. Hailing from the remote province of Little Russia, half- Polish, half German, he went on to became the musical Olympus of Warsaw, where he arrived as a young man, enrolling at the local conservatory in 1901, and he remained gloriously renowned for many years. Karol Szymanowski was born in 1882 in the Russian Empire, in the small village of Tymoshowka (now in the Cherkasy region of the Ukraine).
