Historian, Russian-Ukrainian armistice only after US elections

Historian, Russian-Ukrainian armistice only after US elections

Historian, right-wingers in the EU express real dissatisfaction

"The actors in the Russian-Ukrainian conflict at the moment are both exhausted. An armistice seems likely to be reached, but this may not happen before the US elections: the outcome will influence the kind of truce." That is what historian and lecturer Andrea Graziosi said yesterday in his lectio magistralis on the consequences of the Cold War at the meeting "Commemorating the Cold War in Europe - On the Traces of the Cold War in Europe," 2nd edition of the International Forum being held in Udine June 13-15, with some of the most authoritative experts on the subject, under the scientific direction of Tommaso Piffer, professor at the University of Udine. "The real weight of the Cold War today is felt in Russia," Graziosi pointed out. "Instead, Ukraine represents the attempt to get out of this legacy of the past, and a growing part of the population has a pro-EU sensibility and has already adopted the European way of life.
    In contrast, "Russia suffers great disappointment from the loss of superpower status," he pointed out, "but that status no longer exists, and Russia has no hope of recovering it. Graziosi then turned to the results of the European elections. "The far-right political forces emerging in Europe," he pointed out, "are parties that express genuine dissatisfaction, and we must acknowledge this, but they have no agenda for improvement.
    Rather, what they express leads to a general worsening." "Indeed, the Cold War also weighs on the current politics of several EU countries, such as Poland, Germany, and Hungary," the historian continued. "Let's look, for example, at the results of the European elections in Germany, especially in the former German Democratic Republic," he pointed out, "where there is a preponderance of votes from those who are not happy about anything and are also opposed to a way of life to which they came late and from which they finally feel excluded.
    "Some of these countries," Graziosi continued, "entered the West when the latter was already in crisis: it went better for them than before, but they did not find what they hoped for.
    So," he added, "disappointment and anger, in these countries, often turns into a vote of rejection. And this worries," he said, "because the future of Europe is at stake." US historian Mark Kramer, director of Harvard University's Center for Cold War Studies, also spoke yesterday at the forum, which continues through tomorrow. Recalling the three-year planning of the Forum, Kramer announced the stable organization of a Summer School dedicated to these issues in Udine.
    "Hopefully," he said, "the war in Europe will be over, and we can explore the enduring issues that affect international relations between countries, including wars."
