Russia's return to the international arena. How the Eurasian Economic Union should be estimated?

Rivista di Studi Politici Internazionali. 2014. Vol. 81. No. 4. P. 527-545.

For a long time countries that were once a part of the USSR co-existed with Russia in a single economic system which was destroyed by the collapse of the Soviet Union. The Commonwealth of Independent States built instead of the Soviet Union fulfilled its task of a peaceful break-up and dialogue between the Republics. Nevertheless, the CIS has been ineffective in solving the problems of a deeper cooperation in relation to integration. By the end of the 2000’s in search of large markets Russia understood the need to restore the economic space in which she historically operated. The formation of the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU) became one of her most ambitious projects and the integration potential of this geopolitical project is of course high. However, the way to its implementation is full of challenges.
