RUSSIAN FEDERATION IN THE CONDITIONS OF MULTIPOLAR TRANSIT

O Yu Kondratenko

Abstract


The state of formation of a new system of world order and international relations is outlined. It was found out that there is a transition from post-bipolar to multi-polar world order. At the moment, the world is in a state of transit or transitive order, since the old world-system, which took shape after the end of the Cold War, went back to the past, while the new paradigm of the world order is the subject of uncertainty. The new world order, whose outline is more and more clearly distinguished by a distortion, is to be understood rather as a global mess that is a hallmark of the present stage of globalization. Under these circumstances, large, medium and small states are trying to find their place in the future of a multipolar world, which, according to the forecasts of most experts, will be multipolar. The United States is gradually moving away from its role as a world leader trying to focus ondomestic issues. Among the new centers of power are traditionally China, which is increasingly expanding its influence by expanding its economic presence in different regions through investments in industrial and infrastructure projects. The Russian Federation is compelled to seek a compromise from the West in the sense of recognizing its Russian sphere of strategic interests at the regional and partly global level in order to affirm the status of one of the centers of influence comparable in its power with the USA and China. A major geostrategic task for Russia is the return of the world to the realities of the twentieth century, or during the rhetoric of classical realism, which prevailed such categories as "zones of influence", "buffer zones", "balance of power", "balance of interests". It has been found that the resources available in Russia do not serve as a full-fledged geopolitical basis for designing global influence. That is why the Russian Federation has resorted to aggression and destabilization of the transitive world order in order to support controlled chaos in different directions.
