|30.10.2020 : Respect and Trust
"My first meeting in Moscow 1990 was with the still All-Sowjet Institute for Trade under the leadership of Prof.Dr.Tvildiani from Georgia; introduced by my East German counter-part flying with the East German Airline Interflug" Prof.Dr.Hallier remembers."Today neither the Sovjet Union does exist anymore nor the East German DDR or Interflug, but within the last 30 years there are lots of friendships with personalities from Russia and beyond its borders which was formerly the SU." Hallier added. "In our holistic political evaluation we have to see both: the history of those countries with ours as well as the eyes of our partners and the human beings who each have a bio with an impact of their own historical social environments".

"I met for example Prof.Dr.Nicolai D.Kolesov from the St.Petersburg State University, who was the youngest planner under Stalin and who even within the age of 90 years knew budget-figures of todays Russia by heart; Juri Starovatikh, Honorary Member of the Hero-City of Wolgograd who initiated the city partnership with the West-German city of Cologne heavily destroyed in World War II; Prof.Dr.Malyschkov from the Moscow Government being responsible for the distribution during the difficult transformation from Socialism towards the first steps of market economy; with Prof.Dr. Tabolin I was hunting in the NorthEast at the Russian-Chinese border and with Prof.Dr.Kisselev I was driving fom Kemerowo to the city of Tomsk through the Taiga landscape; Prof.Dr.Leonid Strovskiy from Yekaterinburg in the Ural translating with his team my book Culture and History of Trade into the Russian language; Prof.Dr.Oleg Oshkordin reported about his experiences as a young soldier in the German city of Dresden and both of us visited Dresden in 2011 to enjoy jointly the development after reunification; Prof.Dr.M.Fedorov from the USUE as my partner at the Youth Forum (at the photo with Nobel Laureate Prof.Dr. Aumann) - became also together with me driver for the EXPO 2017 in Astana/Kazakhstan; our Ukraine partners Prof.Dr.Lev Sarkisjan from Donestsk and Prof.Dr.Nina Ushakova from Kiev; never forgotten will be the emotional sailing-tours around the Skagerag in the Baltic Sea with the four-mast ship Padua/Kruzenshtern (today based at Kaliningrad/Koenigsberg) under the commanders Kolomenski, Sedov and Novikov who each due to their difference of age did have other styles of leadership - just to be mentioned as examples of the list of wonderful people from the ERA-network out of the former SU Academia. This human layer then has to be connected with the background of the historic Russian Soul in literature, music and painting to get a feeling about why dialogues in our Civil Society are of utmost importance for global understanding and Peace Processes" Hallier summarized his point of view.
