Russia Today: Russia won`t accept unipolar world - Medvedev

Russia Today: Russia won`t accept unipolar world - Medvedev

'Russia’s President Dmitry Medvedev has outlined five principles guiding his foreign policy in the wake of the recognition of South Ossetia and Abkhazia as independent states. He said Russia recognises international law but won’t accept decisions ‘made by one country solely’.'

Talk about a 'new cold war' is utterly misleading. This is Great Power politics. Russia is a great power, and as such will behave as befits this status. She will naturally seek to strengthen her sphere of influence, just as the United States does in her sphere.
