Global challenges and scientific research goals
We happen to live in a historical period when large-scale changes in the global system with unpredictable but significant political and economic consequences are taking place in front of our eyes. Europe is situated at the centre of a political and socio-economic crisis that has exacerbated the key contradictions of long-term development, deepening conflict between society and nature. The key concepts of the civilized world – the principles of democracy, the rule of law and cultural values – are under threat. The Russian military machine is blackmailing the world with a nuclear disaster, causing large-scale pollution of the natural environment and deliberately destroying infrastructure facilities, and the social and humanitarian spheres of my country. Access to energy resources, water and food products is becoming the means of pressure. Climate change has become a problem of particular sharpness.
