Published article by Elvin Aghayev “Analysis and background of the “Arab Spring” in Libya” on Volume 39, Issue 1-2, European Researcher, 30 Jamuary 2013 

Abstract. The Arab Spring which first broke out in Tunisia and disseminated to many  countries in the Arab world has become one of the most actual topics of the international political  agenda in the recent years. The protests that began against the Gaddafi regime after the revolutions  in Tunisia and Egypt led the opponents to unite under a single umbrella in a short time and form  the main opposition in the country. The opponents which first came to the fore with civilian protest  movements then continued their struggle against the government with armed attacks. In this  article we are going to analyse the Arab Spring in Libya which broke out in February 2011 leaving  its mark that year and investigate the positive and negative effects.

“Relations Between Russia and Serbia” on Volume 8, Issue 1, European Researcher, 30 March 2017 

Abstract. Relations between Russia and Syria are closely allied with historical, spiritual, and cultural ties. Of all the great powers, Russia has had the strongest influence on Serbia. This paper will deal with the history of Serbian-Russian relations, starting with 16th century and Ivan the Terrible’s  interests in Balkans. Since the 18th century, the opinion has emerged that Russia is a protector of  Serbia. First, the Serbian Uprising was a great opportunity for Russia’s “entry” into the Balkan regions. After the October Revolution, relations tensed since the monarchy was opposed to communism. After World War II, relations improved, but only until 1948 when Tito and Stalin came into the direct conflict that lasted until Stalin’s death. The second half of the 20th century was marked by better relations between these two countries.
