Россия: виртуальные и реальные политические перспективы

In the Russian political, analytical and scientific publications and presentations the future of the country is described mainly in the framework of the "great country" paradigm. Meanwhile, this paradigm displays the prospects of Russia in the world in purely virtual realities. Analysis of the resource potential of the country suggest that over the next decade, Russia is likely to lose its status of a great power. The best possible future of real country's position in the world system is that of a regional power remaining within the current borders and comfortable enough for the lives of its citizens. But this option in Russian forecasts is hardly discussed.
