Economic Union in Heart of Europe

The experts were still discussing the results of historic Russia and China summit and the strategically important gas agreement signed on May 21 as another, no less important, event took place on May 29. In Astana the presidents of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan signed the treaty on establishing the Eurasian Economic Union also known as the Eurasian Union (EaU) to come into force starting from January 1, 2015. «Today we are creating together a powerful and attractive centre of economic development, a major regional market which brings together more than 170 million people», Russian President Vladimir Putin said...

Eurasian Economic Integration in 2013: Results and Prospects

A meeting of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council took place in Moscow on December 24 with the participation of Russian President Vladimir Putin, President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko and President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev. After the meeting of the heads of states which make up the integration nucleus, the counterparts from Armenia and Kyrgyzstan, as well as Ukrainian Prime Minister Azarov, who was there as an observer, joined the talks... The signing of the Eurasian Economic Union treaty is slated for May 2014 to launch the project in January 2015. The creation of a powerful industrial and financial base will allow to compete and make the Union one of world economy leaders. The achievement of this strategic objective is the main mission of the Eurasian Economic Space for the coming future...

Central Lithuania – Everlasting Bone of Contention

In October 1920 (93 years ago) a second Polish state appeared in Eastern Europe.  Some lands belonging to contemporary Lithuania and Belarus were seized to found Central (Middle) Lithuania (Litwa Środkowa).  The entity existed since October 1920 till March 1922. Poles accounted for 70% of population with Lithuanians making up the second largest ethnic group. Warsaw staged this reckless scheme and was intent to make Central Lithuania part of Poland once and for all...

The Eurasian Economic Union and Its International Relevance

On November 18, 2011 the presidents of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan signed the Declaration of Eurasian Economic Integration, and on May 29, 2012 in Astana, at a meeting of the heads of the Customs Union member states, a program for preparing a draft of a Eurasian Economic Union Treaty was approved... The final stage in creating a new economic union will be the signing of the Treaty in May 2014 by the presidents of the member states of the new Union.  In the second half of 2014 the Treaty on the Creation of a Eurasian Economic Union is to be ratified by the parliaments of the states acceding to the Treaty, and on January 1, 2015 it is to come into force...

What the Eurasian Union is about

In 2011 the Presidents of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan signed an agreement to create a Eurasian Economic Union (EEU) and have it fully functioning by 2015. The issue is in the focus of media and experts community. Some are somewhat skeptical about the idea, especially in the USA, where the plans are met with open hostility and the government is called upon to effectively counter the initiative... Is the project likely to succeed? Is it not hypocritical to oppose the process of regional integration in Eurasia while supporting it elsewhere? It’s worth to have a look at what the project is about, while setting aside for the time being mantra-like repeated accusations of imperialism just because one of the would-be members has a larger GDP than others (like if it could be otherwise)...

Russia – Belarus – Venezuela a Steady Trio in Latin America

The Venezuelan leadership which has to endure constantly heightened US political pressure must be credited with an intelligent choice of international partners, with the East Slavic duo of Russia and Belarus as the key allies... A presidential campaign is taking off in Venezuela ahead of the October 7 elections. Visiting Caracas, Lukashenko expressed confidence that his friend and ally Chavez would prevail and said new bilateral projects would be coming online within years... President Putin talked to Chavez over the phone this June – as a part of the conversation, the Russian leader praised Venezuela's preparations for the presidential race... A Kremlin press release said Putin and Chavez intend to meet in the nearest future. Hypothetically, keeping oil prices stable is going to be an important part of the agenda...

Syria – Belarus. Parallels

By the end of 2011 – beginning of 2012 Belarus sparked a wave of hysteria in the West. In December the President of the USA signed the sanctions imposing Belarus Human Rights and Democracy Act. The EU introduced additional sanctions against this country on February 28... Since a long time the sanctions have become a constantly used tool of aggression...

Eurasian Union and Russia's Geostrategic Stability

Russia can't realistically hope to achieve geostrategic stability unless it manages to entrain Ukraine. As a result, the task of precluding synergies between the two countries occupies a significant line on the US and EU foreign-policy agendas. Russian premier Vladimir Putin's opinion piece published in Izvestia in 2011 - "A new integration project for Eurasia: The future in the making" – where he puts forward a case for building a Eurasian union in the post-Soviet space, simply had to come under fire in the West...

Eurasian Project a Threat to New World Order

One might be tempted to regard Russian premier V. Putin's paper “A new integration project for Eurasia: The future in the making”, which saw the light of day in Izvestia on October 3, 2011, as the presidential front-runner's sketchily laid out program, but upon scrutiny that appears to be only one part of a wider picture. The opinion piece momentarily ignited wide-scale controversy in and outside of Russia and highlighted the ongoing clash of positions on global development...

Shaky prospects for the Eastern Partnership

The meeting in late September of the member states of the Eastern Partnership (EaP) project (initiated by Poland and Sweden and targeting six post-Soviet states – Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia) showed that Warsaw is still interested in the Euro-Atlantic integration of these countries, especially of the first three ones... Actually, the EaP project is aimed at breaking long cultural and historical traditions which used to unite Russia and it’s the former Soviet republics. The aim is also to let the West expand its military presence in the region, an initiative also launched by Poland...

INF Violation Hits Radar Screen amid Rising Tensions over Ukraine

It has just been announced that Russian and US experts will meet in September to discuss a bilateral agreement. This is an important event against the background of rising tensions over Ukraine. The U.S. has recently informed its NATO allies about American concerns over a possible breach of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF) by Moscow banning all ground-based nuclear-capable missiles with range from 500 to 5,500 km... A lukewarm conflict between Russia and the US has been drawing on for a number of years with mutual accusations at experts’ level. Minor treaty violations are a routine matter to be tackled by working groups. It is usually solved without any media attention, but tensions hiked over Ukraine have caused the matter to spill into the open and get blown out of proportion...
