  War against terrorism: Impications for the Bulgarian military
english
Any analysis of 9/11's impact on bulgaria and especially on the national military should begin with the clarification how this date and the consequent events reflected on and still influence Bulgarian society. One of the noticeable changes that took place in the United States was not only the outburst of patriotism but also a sharp rise in the level of public trust in the state institutions, especially in the American military. A similar effect did not occur, however, in Bulgaria.

english
Was the Russian military intervention in Moldova and Georgia in 1992-95 an attempt by Moscow toregain the geopolitical space lost after the collapse of the Soviet Union as some scholars claim?
