Rivista di Studi Politici Internazionali. 2016. Vol. 83. No. 3. P. 331-352.

The size and its geographical position make Russia a link between Europe and Asia. Based on its contribution to world culture and interfaith dialogue, history and unique experience in the formation of differing economic systems, and its status as a permanent member of the UN Security Council, it should play a constructive role in unifying Eurasia. The origins of this philosophical, political, and cultural project can be found in the positive part of ideologemes of classical and contemporary Eurasianism.According to strong arguments expressed by leaders of the Russian expert community, there exist the necessary prerequisites for Moscow to assume this role; centripetal tendencies have prevailed everywhere, the era of individualism and isolation is moving away and there is a growing desire for integration and regionalization. With the participation of Russia, China, India and Kazakhstan, supporting international organizations have been established. Their influence is growing and the cooperation of the Member States paves the way for the implementation of the Great Eurasian project.
