The leaders of the new Russia

Regarding the leaders from Kremlin, just as the famous dolls Matryoshka, they seem to be ‘born’ one from another – Initially, Yeltsin was Gorbachev’s choice (for a soviet career, indeed); Putin was then Yeltsin’s choice, and Medvedev was –how else – Putin’s choice.[1] All of these three successive leaders, as of 1991 up to nowadays, followed the same geopolitical desiderata Citește în continuare

Playing with no cards

The decade 2000 – 2009 brought certain vision related changes both into the western camp as well as into the Russian camp. This period is marked not only by the enlargement of NATO, which intrinsically involved that Russia was still a threat but also by the new leaders that came to power, both in the United States as well as in Russia.

The geopolitics of the frozen conflicts

Although it would gain the status of partner of the western world, Russia would clearly define its own interests, especially in terms of the area of the former USSR, which now became generically ‘the close neighborhood’. This area of great interest for the Russia was about to gain a status that was consecrated by means of an authentic military doctrine in November 1993. It was in these spaces from the former perimeter of the USSR that were about to emerge the so-called ‘frozen conflicts’. One thing that we have to notice is the fact that the republics with the greatest problems into the post – soviet era were precisely those that did not prove to be receptive at the proposals launched by the leaders of Kremlin – that is to collaborate on different levels (economic, military, etc).

Over the last decade, Russia, the main successor of the Soviet Union, seems to have steered its foreign politics to a different direction. Is there such a change or this has been the rule all this time? The country nowadays does not seem to have lost its imperialistic velleities in spite of the decline that went into during the first ten years of post-soviet era. The present paper’s purpose is to analyze the extent to which Russia wanted, following the collapse of the soviet empire, to try to get closer to the western camp and the extent to which it tried to maintain its pursuit of great power. It is not somewhat possible that the imperialistic desiderata, that had been less visible in Yeltsin era, will just be more accentuated during Putin era and afterwards, during Putin-Medvedev era?
