Россия между Атлантикой и Тихим океаном: Вопрос стратегического выбора?

The article argues that the pivot to the Asia-Pacific region has become Russia’s strategic response to security and economic challenges the country is faced with, including existential challenges such as the threat of losing the status of a great power, maintaining her territorial integrity and independence. This strategy should not be viewed as a policy meant only to ameliorate the economic and demographic situation in the Far East and Eastern Siberia and to address situational regional issues in security and economic sphere. Russia’s pivot to the Asia-Pacific should be interpreted as an opportunity for Russia to break out of the economic, security and geographic traps she has found herself in within the Western-dominated international order and to facilitate the development of an alternative system which will allow Russia to utilize her comparative advantages.
