Индо-Тихоокеанская стратегия США и Евразия
Despite the critical attitude of the current American President towards his predecessor, the Trump administration actually continued the course of the Obama administration to turn the Asia-Pacific region into the most important priority of American foreign policy. Moreover, the US Asia-Pacific strategy was transformed under Trump into the Indo-Pacific strategy, after the Indian ocean was added to the Asia-Pacific region. The US Department of defense developed the "Indo-Pacific strategy" (published in June 2019), and the US Pacific command was renamed the Indo-Pacific command (may 2018). The above-mentioned Indo-Pacific strategy is an integral part of Trump's national security strategy, according to which China, along with Russia, was declared America's enemy number 1. Americans complained about both the economic and military-political aspects of the Chinese presence in the Indo-Pacific region. At the same time, official Washington is no longer confident that it can cope with these enemies, China and Russia, alone. Trying to implement the main provisions of the Indo-Pacific strategy, official Washington has staked not only on building up its military power in the Indian-Pacific region, but also on trying to build an anti-Chinese system of alliances in this colossal region. Along with such traditional American allies in the region as Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, the Philippines and Singapore, the American side has in the recent years made active attempts to attract India, Indonesia, Malaysia and Vietnam to this system as well. These American attempts, however, can only cause serious concern not only in Beijing, but also in Moscow, thereby contributing to the mutual rapprochement of the Russian Federation and China – and on an anti-American basis. Meanwhile, the Russian-Chinese tandem is able to devalue American efforts to strategically encircle China, creating a strong Eurasian rear for the Middle Kingdom.
