Summary/Abstract: Historians of international relations generally agree that parallelism in state formation and demolition processes in almost every region of the world political system is an ordinary phenomenon. The article is focused on some parallel points in respect of historical formation, rising, declining, and collapsing processes of states in Eurasian region. As the case, we scrutinized the common interactions of Turkish and Russian states in various periods. In the light of these two states’/nations’ repeated historical revolutions and seminal events that they have made, the Turkish-Russian national similarities, i.e. common threats, common fears, common fate, common experiences, un-/shared heritage, and all of their results, as the core interaction model of the Eurasian continent are examined. In this historical context, there are two models of Eurasianism: Turkish model and Russian model. These two models of Eurasia did not integrate with each other in history. Even though they intensively interacted, these two were always antagonistic in relations. But eventually, in today’s world, these two models are cooperating in Eurasian matters.
