(Kotashov is a member of Kagarlitsky's think-tank. As such, his reply to 
a query about Ukraine is noteworthy.)

Q: Was the conflict in Novorossiya (eastern Ukraine) an issue?

A: There was, understandably, discussion at the Forum on the situation 
in Novorossiya, the uprising in eastern Ukraine. Russian and EU’s elites 
implement common neoliberal policies. At the same time, they are in 
conflict with each other over events in Ukraine. The peoples need a 
different policy, a non-neoliberal Eurasian integration. Neither Russian 
nor European elites are capable of implementing it.
