11:32 am
a pleasure sir so you had one of europe's think tanks i was wondering in terms of policy what do you promote and is there such thing as european approach for example there's an american approach there's russian approach is there such thing as a european approach not really in policy terms because you know europe is not yet. single unified decision making specially for foreign policy i think it will take a few decades before europe is able to act as the single voice in international international affairs nevertheless i think there is a so to the sensibility you know or sensitivity about international affairs europe is much closer to the e.u. or you should continent than the united states perhaps we are a little bit more realistic but do you see russia as part of europe yes of course russia is part of europe but it's not part of the european union you know i was reading the economist couple of years ago and they were making predictions on how
11:33 am
the world would be in time years and one of the predictions was that russia will be part of european union do you think it's possible you know why not first of all. russia is much too big you know and i think that. europe president loves a lot in since the collapse of the soviet union twenty years ago then we have not they just. the newcomers don't forget that we have a huge controversy about. just cannot imagine the candidacy of russia. in a time when we are still struggling and debating a bangle so. about turkey so thing that i'm not saying that russia will never be in the european union you know my own vision is that in one hundred years from now or two hundred years from now the european union will have extended to the whole planet actually because i think we are the seeds of a new model of world government so the european union is
11:34 am
a very serious thing but if you tell me in ten years that that is not the slightest chance for russia to join surprised to hear that theory for every many people now that are the. basis for your play. well specially with a. badly you really think such a strong foundation that you can last and actually expand. again i'm talking long very long term horizon for fall for one simple reason you know globalization means more and more interdependence with more and more interdependence the risk of small incidents or accidents have a huge consequence is all over the world this risk is increasing very fast which means that we will have to invent totally new modes of governance this is exactly what we are experimenting. european union level of course but progress is
11:35 am
difficult of course in the case of the you will now at a very defining moment. my guess by the way for the euro is that we will come out of this stronger not weaker because we will be forced you know to invent into the new devices the new instruments of governance to avoid the repetition of such crises and but but there is no alternative for europe is supposed europe. suppose you have destroys itself itself it could happen of course. but it would be a cup a straw for every single member of the european union it would be catastrophic for the world so my point is that of course the bases are really shaky but it is the most interesting model in politics that has
11:36 am
been invented in the last since world war two. and i repeat i think it will be a model for the whole world and invite me again in one hundred years from now and you will see that i am right the first polish for example right now america regardless of the crisis is considered to be a hedge and i continue to be number one i don't think it will be in ten years we are talking about the new cut cap and governance of the world first of all i think that the us is no longer the hague model and that it's the beginning of the end and we made but it will be at this stage comparable to let's say the great britain at the end of the don't see into century. talk about seventy or eighty years for the u.k. to lose entirely its predominance and i think we have a more or less similar evolution with the us my point is that the degradation for
11:37 am
instance of the of the note. to us by standard and poor's seems to be an anecdote but it's deeper than that because it shows that no the united states is becoming a country like the others that is they have to to put their house in in order but it will take time and the problem is that the u.s. you know they are not accustomed to thinking in those terms because the custom to think about themselves. all the other countries following the leadership is no longer the case but you know we also china you know china. hates. also to discuss and to to to negotiate the economic policies with the with the others so we have one country we have two countries that are three the u.s. and china for different reasons the do not like to cooperate to really corporate we other countries they have to. to learn to learn how to cooperate with others and
11:38 am
with the europeans in particular on financial matters but it's going to take time now what are your predictions for russia because i know you've been traveling to this country since ninety seven a lot of people say you know cynics in the west that only declarations that change there really russia a stack of mentality what do you predict for russia what how do you see now and how how do you how do you see it coming up in the next five ten years well first of all i really like this country. like think it's a great country it's a civilization in itself and i think that what they have done over the last twenty years is quite remarkable remarkable in spite of all the huge difficulties of transition after the collapse of the soviet union and i think that most westerners and his teammate who do not recognize. the kind of a nightmare you know the collapse of the soviet union with all its institutions its
11:39 am
economy and so forth and so on well so i think what has been achieved is quite remarkable i think this country will gradually evolve in. the way in the more liberal way but all this will take time do you agree that image of russia in the west is slightly distorted if not iraq it is yes i think the. worst country in particular but not only in france. tendency to look at russia in a very very good. because the way. i think this is probably has a negative backlash as a consequence because i think that for the for the for the russians if the op will see them constantly criticize for not being good enough democratic and so forth and
11:40 am
so on but in the end it can have a negative feedback effect so we should be more tolerant but by the way many of the people who put the size russia constantly do not even trouble in russia still nevertheless russia and france do share a very special relation and role do you agree that these two countries are clearly closer than any other european countries president but america we kind of have good relations but we have fundamental blocking point with france we share. nearly what i think we get ourselves as opposed to other countries. i think that russia is in many ways a much stronger relationship with germany than than with france but particular in economic terms but i think it is true nonetheless that france and russia has always kind of a special relationship and it's very interesting because when
11:41 am
a new president in france for instance want to change the relation and that was the case with sarkozy at the beginning because at the beginning of his terms of course he was a little negative about about russia but usually after the while when the when the newcomer sees job so to speak to the classical relation is restored. so it's exactly what happened with president sarkozy you know by the way so and also it's important to see that in russia in france. russia is culturally quite popular for instance many of you know our best hope. because the deal we even though we do have this special relationship that you have a lot more of you know right now we don't always agree politically for instance in case of libya sarkozy was so adamant for khadafy to go not so much why do you think so well. i think two things. at least.
11:42 am
if there is you know when you have circumstances such as the so-called arab spring that some people prefer to call the islamic spring which i think is a little bit exaggerated but the way to behave is not obvious at all because we know that doing nothing is not desirable and acting too quickly has also some drawbacks so the choice is is difficult and we know that there are many obstacles for instance the postcard efi will not be an easy one. but this being said i think it's important for russia not to give the impression that. it is always on the on the side. of dictators. so to be too much conservative to be on the side of saddam hussein in
11:43 am
their fee. kim jong il. it's not it's not it cannot be a long term policy so. it's a difficult balance but i think that was also heavily criticized france france is against the military intervention differently it's not that we really stick you know there is no support for military intervention nobody wants to intervene militarily in the in the case of libya it was risky but there was after all support in the security council and more important than that there was support from the arab league in the in the end there was actual military involvement of some arab countries in the case of syria it's a totally different situation. thank you very much for this interview the

last month after thirty straight defeats. to moscow midfielder than these can shake off has been named russian player of the year after the twenty four year old finished twenty eleven as la coste top scorer became a regular member of the national side she felt quarterly reports. paid to difference a year makes them to go denise. was just one of a number of talented russian field is the idea at the end of two thousand and eleven season started to turn so much made of his country's key players in this position. bush of course has no particular reason for his rapid improvements though he did pay tribute to his new coach looking mighty for. the fact that the college believes in me is vital and when you have this belief it's much easier to play on the field than i remember back in two thousand and eight when i was playing and the coach at that time that i shared that i he didn't believe in me even though
11:53 am
i was scoring regularly belief for me is everything. bush record has been at like a mighty five a vast majority of his career two thousand and eleven has been a frustrating campaign for the team fail to live up to their potential however crucial call has been perhaps the team's key plan and a former coach anatoly bush advance says denise is developing into an excellent midfielder. just that you know when you have he's a very versatile player and has everything you would want to find in a modern day footballer defensively he's very sound while he is excellent to getting food and schools a lot of goes especially for midfielder i'm really happy that he managed to break into the national team and i'm sure he can continue to go from strength to strength . bush recalled was like a much each top scorer with eight goals which is an impressive return from that field. and that helped a twenty four year old break into the russian national team and he managed to grab
