Russia: Regional Policies
Country Study > Chapter 8 > Foreign Relations > Regional Policies

REGIONAL POLICIES


The geographical extent of Russia's foreign policy interests is considerably less than that of the Soviet Union, which sought support and bases of operation wherever they might be available in the world. Nevertheless, most of the Soviet Union's primary zones of interest -- Central and Western Europe, the Far East, the Mediterranean and Black Sea regions, and the United States -- are priorities for Russia in the 1990s. To that list has been added the near abroad, which has become a zone of insecurity and the subject of constant debate.
