Stanislav Byshok: The geopolitical process never ends

In relation to Ukraine, the interests of Brussels and Washington in recent years have significantly differed. Ukraine, for Washington, is a guarantee that, firstly, the European ambitions of Russia will be substantially limited, and secondly, the prospect of the creation of the Eurasian continental bloc from Lisbon to Vladivostok remains distant.

Geopolitics in Republican Italy - A limited sovereignty Country

In spite of its propitious geographical position and the peculiar morphology of its land, nowadays Italy does not have an own geopolitical doctrine.

The transition from the unipolar system to a multipolar one is generating tensions in two particular areas of the Eurasian landmass: the Mediterranean and Central Asia.

While the European Union is completely absent and in hiding in the framework of indications-diktats coming from Washington and London, some South American countries, particularly Venezuela, Brazil, Bolivia, Argentina and Uruguay, are showing their steady willingness to actively participate in the construction of the new world order. Russia, with its central position in the Euro-Asian land mass, its vast size and its current orientation stamped on foreign policy by the Putin-Medvedev tandem, will probably be the keystone in the new planetary structure. But to achieve this epochal function, it must overcome some internal problems: first of all, those regarding the demographic question and the modernization of the country, while on the international level it must consolidate relations with China and India and establish strategic agreements with Turkey and Japan as soon as possible. Above all, it must clarify its position in the Near and Middle East. Read more about Tiberio Graziani: Russia keystone of the multipolar system
