Putin should not express support for the Middle East while fuelling instability by supporting Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad, the Saudi Foreign Minister said.

After a nasty recession in the aftermath of the 1998 debt default, Russia's foreign trade turnover went on a decade long tear. Russian exports boomed as commodity prices increased, and imports boomed as the emerging middle class, for probably the first time in the country's history, was able to afford [...]

I do not use Google+ much. Please, connect rather via Facebook, LinkedIn, Academia.edu, Livejournal, or/and XING which I use more regularly for professional and semi-private communication. Please, do not make private statements, open to the public, on the walls of my sites. Thank you!

I study contemporary Russian and Ukrainian politics with a focus on the post-Soviet extreme right at the National University of Kyiv - Mohyla Academy (NaUKMA), a small, but prolific Ukrainian higher education institution (http://www.ukma.kiev.ua/ua/faculties/fac_soc/politology/index.php  ), and the Eichstaett Institute for Central and East European Studies (ZIMOS), a miniscule, yet productive Bavarian research center focusing on current Russian intellectual history (http://www1.ku-eichstaett.de/ZIMOS/  ). Since 2005, I have been also involved in the creation, in Ukraine, of a new Master's program in German and European Studies administered jointly by Kyiv's Mohyla Academy and Jena's Schiller University (http://www.des.uni-jena.de/ ).

Most of my academic and semi-scholarly publications are available here: http://ku-eichstaett.academia.edu/AndreasUmland/Papers . My books are listed here: http://ku-eichstaett.academia.edu/AndreasUmland/Books .

If interested, please, do not hesitate to join the groups "Russian Nationalism" (links lists, papers, listserv & newsletter) at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/russian_nationalism/ , "Researchers of Russian Nationalism" (networking, updates & discussion) at http://www.linkedin.com/groups?about=&gid=157897 , and "Researchers of Historical and Neo-Fascism" (networking, updates & discussion) at http://www.linkedin.com/e/vgh/1640147/ as well as at http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=52910686741 .

I would be glad to hear from people with similar research interests, and from those wanting to publish their dissertations, monographs, edited volumes or document collections in the English- and German-language book series "Soviet and Post-Soviet Politics and Society" where 100 volumes were published in 2004-2010 (http://www.ibidem-verlag.de/spps.html ). Among the particular (but not only) foci of this series are Russian nationalism (http://www.amazon.com/gp/blog/post/PLNK38GJQXL0CN9AM ), post-communist politics (http://www.amazon.com/gp/richpub/listmania/byauthor/ABDE6L94T5H8R/ ), and higher education in CEE or the NIS (http://www.amazon.de/Higher-Education-in-Eastern-Europe-English-language-Books/lm/R3BBCQE249Q9D3/ ).

ZIMOS's web journal "Forum noveishei vostochnoevropeiskoi istorii i kul'tury" (http://www1.ku-eichstaett.de/ZIMOS/forumruss.html ) invites Russian-language scholarly papers in the fields of contemporary East European history, post-Soviet politics, and Eurasian cultural studies.

If you have worked in Eastern Europe or the NIS, I would be interested in comments, additions and corrections concerning the guide "Teach at a university in the former Soviet bloc" at http://www.amazon.com/gp/richpub/syltguides/fullview/REKTGK0DL1N8F/ . (Additional German-language literature can be found here: http://www.amazon.de/Das-Hochschulwesen-Osteuropas-deutschspr-Bücher/lm/R1GDNZU1JWNJYP/ .)
