    "Overview" Research deals with comparison of four cases with different features. First, Global war on terrorism mainly initiated by USA. US government has a huge historical experience of management during critical foreign political events. Specific of modern situation however is different: GWOT looks like series of combat operations of USA against several terrorist organisations, the most complex cases are Iraq and Afghanistan. In comparison with First Gulf war which became famous for so called CNN effect, these missions looks like “embedded” when media are used as field of spinning, agenda setting and propaganda oriented both on internal US and global audience. Before 2003 USA created several official departments for global communication based on public diplomacy. Second, Russia has always its strategic interests on Caucasus. After two wars with Chechens, current attention of Russian government paid to Georgia. The later blame Russia in support of separatist movements in... More > Osetia and Abkhazia. So there are at least three items which Russia tries to present to world audience: Chechnya is internal policy question of Russian Federation but it has international media and political elites reaction; Osetia and Abkhazia are in fact parts of Post-Soviet “frozen” conflict zones used by Russia for slowing Georgia’s integration to NATO. Conflicts between Russians and Georgians are estimated as hidden struggle for influence in region which is strategically important for energy supply transit from Central Asia to EU. Third, Kosovo case is not new for Europe. After years of war and conflicts in former Yugoslavia, Kosovo became a key element after 2004 when EU concentrated its enlargement initiative in South-East Europe. The main task of CFSP in Southern Europe is to save stability and security of the region as it became enclave in EU after Bulgaria and Romania joining EU in 2007. In fact discussion about Kosovo independence arose just after 2007, so it is possible to assume that problems of future development of the region were worked through in EU. It shows crisis management approach to the Kosovo case. But at the same time decision of Kosovo in 2008 reacted critics of Russia, which blame EU and USA for demolition of current international relations system. Namely it could resulted in reconsidering of borders in former USSR. Fourth case is management of Ukrainian foreign policy and foreign media coverage of Yuschenko, Yanukovitch and Timoshenko activity abroad.< Less
