The task of public diplomacy – to enlist the public – is becoming particularly significant today. Programs in the field of information, culture and education, used in states foreign policy and generally defined as the public diplomacy, are experiencing today a new stage of development and attention from governments, various non-government international actors and experts. Indonesia is the most populated Muslim country in the world and one of the fastest growing economies in Southeast Asia. However, it’s fair to note that major constraint in the development of Russian-Indonesian relations is still remaining a low level of information exchange on very extensive possibilities of unrealized cooperation potential in the field of trade, investment, tourism and other spheres of interaction between both countries business circles. Ambassador of the Republic of Indonesia in the Russian Federation Mr. Djauhari Oratmangun in his interview with the head of the Center for Eurasian Cooperation and Development (CECD) Olga Biryukova specially for the “Economic Strategies” magazine told about the intricacies of Russian-Indonesian relations and the public diplomacy possibilities in this context.
The Eurozone problem is something of a koan; full of paradoxes and contradictions that cannot be understood in terms the prevailing orgrammar (organizational grammar).
Building a configuration of transboundary EAEU manufacturing technological complex, beneficial for member countries, including import-substituting production and sales structures, makes possible the gradual replacement of foreign suppliers by Russian (allied) producers. With the help of distributed-integrated information management system it is possible to “joint” the interests of various economic agents on the basis of heterogeneous system components (including business entities and physical objects) of the common EAEU economic space.
Problems of the North are primarily connected with the living conditions of people, environment and economy. Today are palpable the consequences of the country’s leadership decision taken in the mid-1990s on production decommissioning of these areas. At that time gold mines were closed, the Northern Sea Route was disbanded and many social organizations were abolished; but despite all these difficulties the people didn’t leave their habitual residence remaining faithful to their roots and traditions. The problems of the Arctic and the Far North, how forgotten areas of the Far North are acquiring a “second breath”, why to cooperate with Alaska and how it is possible to reduce significantly the way from the Asia-Pacific region to Europe — all these items were covered by the Head of the Sakha Republic (Yakutia) Yegor Borisov in his interview with the “ES” magazine.
The article deals with the problems and achievements of the integration process in the Commonwealth of Independent States, an important step of which is formation of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU).

It shows regulatory requirements for NPP personnel, peculiarities of NPP operating personnel training for the position and of maintaining their qualification. The paper analyses possible risks associated with preparation and staffing of operational personnel and their consequences, as well as measures of risks prevention.

For the first time since 1945 the Ukrainian society and the international community are checked with respect to possible combat employment of nuclear weapons on the planet. At that the source of the nuclear threat is called in advance — the Russian Federation. Who and why needs to prepare the consciousness of the Ukrainians and the international community to the possible nuclear scenario and puts Russia in the accused position in advance?
Demographic projections — the basis for management decisions in the social policy field. Based on the average projection variant of Rosstat at the beginning of 2014 for the annual age-sex groups, we offer analysis of the population dynamics of the main socio-demographic groups in 2013–2031 and comments on social policy in response to demographic challenges (changes in demographic structure and quantity fluctuations in demographic groups that require expansion and contraction of social infrastructure over the next two decades). The proposed social policies are mainly associated with increasing elasticity of social infrastructure and implementation of the balance policy “family — work”.
