Abstract: The benefit of being on Europe’s periphery is that other parts of Europe can seem extremely distant, as with Russia, but this does not preclude contact. Situated in the middle of the Mediterranean, Malta had no foreign policy before independence in 1964, although the islands had played host to Russian diplomats from the time of Peter the Great. On independence from the UK, diplomatic relations with the Soviet Union were established in 1967 and it was in Malta that Bush and Gorbachev declared the Cold War at an end in 1989.
