Naujasis Saltasis KarasThe Lithuanian Baltos Lankos publishing house introduced its new publication, Edward Lucas’ The New Cold War’ in Lithuanian today.  The book was presented during a discussion at the Vilnius’ Book Fair.  Mr Virgis Valantinavicius moderated the discussion.  The book is already well known in Lithuania even before its official appearance.

Some of the commentators joking that the President Adamkus did a promotion for the book during his recent interview to the FT warning the West about a possibility of the New Cold War between the West and Russia.

Well, I am off to read the book, what about you?

    Talks about “New or renewed Cold wars” though might spark a wide public debate are not really helpful, especially given the challenges and complexities nations both small and big alike across the globe face today. Russia is not an exception. trade and innovation not the territorial conquest are the defining features of our times. and both sides (the West and the imagined East) better get it before its too late.

    I agree that the World is in a complex situation now, but when wasn’t it during the modern times. I also agree that since those of us who agree with the globalisation should also accept the negative practices which are created by the globalisation. However, even the G7 nations (Australia) announced that it will start scrutinise the influx of the ‘sovereign funds’ into this country, and the others might follow the suite. The UK put a strong opposition to the Russian Energy giant’s entry to their market. A leader of the one of the top biggest exporter in the world and the largest EU country pushed through a deal during his last days in the office only to join a board of the company which was created in aftermath of this…

    The Russians are stating that the West is afraid to play in the capitalist market with the Russian business. The trouble is that with its investment the Russian business brings the Kremlin hand into the country, with its corrupt practices and its reviving imperial ambitions. This is way it is dangerous to invite a wolf (bear) into the sheep flock. The bear does not know who to play by its rules, hence the sheep will be slaughtered even if the bear a good natured one.

    Lucas states that if Lithuania will not be careful the Russians will eat us for breakfast.
