Summary/Abstract: The collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 caused to Russia serious economic disadvantages, territorial and political, although it was considered the natural heir to the former Soviet construction. After 1990, however, was becoming more difficult for Russia to maintain its superpower status, the geopolitical leading global and regional. Aware of new realities, Moscow authorities have focused their efforts on Eurasia. In this context, the Russian Federation as the successor of the USSR, not hidden never claim to promote - by means of economic, political and military - interests in this area and to maintain and expand the dominant influence.
