"A symbol of powerlessness"

"Russia, which the collective West is trying to isolate with its "sanctions from hell", has shifted its main trade flows in an east-south-east direction, just as the British did the same in a west-north-west direction more than 200 years ago"

The Europeans want to go to Russia: Head Centre G.O.R.K.I. SPbU Karin Kneissl at the World Youth Festival.

"I was very impressed by this amazing willingness of people in Russia to overcome problems, no matter how difficult they are. I've been here since the fall, and I haven't heard such a formulation at all: "this is a problem”. That's the standard German answer. This is not the case in Russia, no matter at what level they encounter difficulties. This feature of Russians has been underestimated by those who impose sanctions."

Karin Kneissl attended the World Youth Festival 2024 in Sochi

At the session organized by the Russian Znanie Society she acted as a key speaker with a lecture "Sanctions - Symbols of Failure", explained how measures aimed at weakening the Russian economy turned into problems for those who took them.  Then Head of G.O.R.K.I. Centre SPbU participated in the "Human Capital" session, where discussed the real prospects for leaders in today's world. During the event, Karin Kneissl had an open dialogue with ladies and gentlemen on the "Multinational Unity" track. She also participated in a number of interviews for major Russian muss media. During the Forum Karin Kneissl had a conversation with young, ambitious people from around the world. We invite them to join our events at the G.O.R.K.I. Centre SPbU to continue discussion.

Karin Kneissl discusses the prospects for the development of AI technologies in a new article for Vedomosti

"Even to a non-specialist it was obvious that the topic of personal security requires a deep rethinking. And with each passing day, it is becoming more and more obvious that the future of artificial intelligence (AI) is firmly linked to war. American entrepreneur Ilon Musk, despite his long-standing fascination with "big data," has long warned of such deadly AI capabilities. Yet this is a future that has not yet arrived."

"Fields of death on the land of Palestine"

"Russian President Vladimir Putin has compared the situation in the Gaza Strip to the siege of Leningrad. And in this sense, Russia's position on the dramatic events in Gaza is much clearer than that of the Arab world, which has been carrying the "Palestinian question" as a kind of symbolic torch for almost 80 years. But at the moment, the Palestinians have once again been abandoned by their Arab brothers to their own fate"

Vedomosti, February 19, 2024

"Science is silent"

"I started my teaching career at Russian universities in 2020 and continue to this day despite all the pressure... my Russian colleagues are no longer allowed to go backwards, and even articles in international academic journals are no longer accepted. I am among them as well, and I say this with pride and gratitude"

Vedomosti, February 8, 2024

“Lessons from Stirlitz”

“In the context of current geopolitical events and against the backdrop of the fact that artificial intelligence today controls both war games and real wars, such as the conflict in the Gaza Strip, the current NATO exercises are a very risky step. Some kind of video fake a la deep fake or other provocation may well trigger an unpredictable chain reaction.”

“Germany is on the edge”

“Against the backdrop of the many socio-economic problems facing Germany, the three-party coalition government of Chancellor Olaf Scholz is criticized from all sides, and, according to opinion polls, it now enjoys the trust of less than 20% of Germans.”

Head of the G.O.R.K.I. center Karin Kneissl commented for Vedomosti on the political situation in France:

“Something wrong is happening today in the French Republic, where the royal favorite has more weight than government ministers. Once upon a time, the king's favorite was the Marquise de Pompadour. And we must admit that this lady had greater political instincts than other characters of the Parisian сourt in 2024.”
