Part I Geopolitical position The Russian Federation, which appeared on the political map of the world in the early 1990s, represents today extremely influential global actor in international relations.

Russia’s security and foreign policy after the dissolution of the USSR is a part of a larger debate over Russia’s “national interest” and even over the Russian new identity.
